    High praise! What position are you playing him in?

    Thinking about playing him at CAM behind Suker.

    ST in a 442 atm. Feels very similar to Maradona but can last the full 90 and his right foot is a lot more reliable imo

    Picked up base Puskas , mid Gerrard and mid Cantona a couple of weeks ago So around 200 games played

    Puskas - Lethal is so many ways being H/L I went for the base over the middle and he is always on the shoulder of the defensive line so any driven pass or through ball he is away and knocking the ball forward with RS I don’t think I’ve seen a defender come anywhere near him , passing is outstanding and his finishing is great on either foot being 3* WF I was worried but with the changes this year after 2 WL I just don’t find it noticeable at all
    The biggest thing for me though that impressed me is his first touch I don’t think I’ve ever used a card who literally can bring a ball under control ready to pass/ shoot

    Gerrard - playing as RCM in 41212 2
    Box to box and all round Solid player great in the tackle and fantastic range of short and long Passing

    Cantona - CAM 41212 2
    What a player strength is his biggest attribute along side his perfect passing and ability to hit the ball slightly slower shot animation of the base who I had tried as a ST
    Plenty of pace to break through defenders with the strength I lot of times he is a magnet for getting free kicks really enjoy using him

    Base Cruyff for me just seems so average. I can’t justify paying 3 mill for him when he just seems to get bullied by any defender lol.

    I've seen lots of good reviews on puskas now, despite the 3 star foot.

    I'm about to sell Mbappe and thinking of Puskas up top with Cr7 and Neymar behind. Played about 10 games with Cantona before i flipped him last week how does he compare to Puskas?

    Has anyone used Garrincha? His middle version looks unreal

    Used him base version and he was exceptional, He can play either CAM/RW or ST. Found him very agile and good in front of goal.

    Because I play them in different positions I really can’t compare them but Puskas I have paired with Mbappe right now and he out performs him consistently his movement I find incredible

    89 Eusebio how good is he this year?

    Would you sell a first owner Mbappe him? Would have 600k for rest of team plus the likes of OTW Werner, FB Koscielny, RB Mukiele, ASM untradable

    I’ve used mid Henry for around 30 games. I’ve sold him because I could make good profit.
    He’s very clinical as you would expect it. His appearance and strength were a pro when he was battling against a defender. Sometimes I did notice the balance when I was dribbling and the defender makes the tackle.
    I would recommend him!

    Any advice on what to do with 3 million?

    Looking at either Cantona or Etoo, or any recommendations really

    Have an ok untradeable team now, just missing something amazing at CAM/CF/ST as I do switch formations in game depending on situation

    Thanks

    So 91 Dinho, played around 40 wl games now with the man.


    I think its perhaps obvious that dinho is incredible at most aspects of this game and has value with the 5* skills which seems super important this year. He's probably not worth 3m though when you can get Mbappe for half the price and get a similar input or even Rashford who is a super meta player this year.


    I may sell Dinho and maybe look to nab base Cantona or pick up Cr7 and use on 8 chem. ( or just go liquid and run with IF rashford and red zaha up top)

    IF Rashford is quality...feels as good as Neymar and Mbappe at times.

    Absolutely is quality. I had Mbappe last week in WL, probably the best NIF in the game. I only sold him to make way for 01 Rashford...and made a tidy 130k after tax profit on the IF Rashford chilling on the bench : P

    I have base maradona now but im looking for a change! I’m looking for a striker, so who would be best? Base/mid puskas or base or mid cantona?

    Picked up base zidane for the WL and played him as a RCM in 41212(2)

    Had some issues with speed up lag this WL, first 7 games was a breeze still even with up to 10 speed up lags per game, then the lag got worse and lets just say I needed 16 more games to get to 11 wins....

    Not sure what to make of him, first 7 games that felt bit better he did the job but bit wasted as an RCM, reckon gerrard would be better there. Gonna stick a shadow on him and try him as a cdm without stay back when attacking in a 4231 and see if he does better there.

    Kinda wasting his offensive stats at CDM, Better off just getting Kante or RB Pogba. He's the best as an attacking CCM or using at CAM in that formation with a Hunter.
  • Hi all. I packed my first Icon a couple of weeks ago. 88 Cantona tradeable. I've been using him and while he's an excellent card, I've been debating whether or not I should sell him (2m coins) and buy mid 90 Del Piero (1.3m) & baby Cannavarro (700k) with the profit.

    I had ADP & Cannavaro last year in FIFA 20 and both were awesome. I'm just not sure how players from FIFA 20 translate to this years game. I'd imagine a player like ADP would translate well. The question I have is whether or not there's a drastic difference from 90 ADP to 88 Cantona. If there isn't, then basically I'd be getting Cannavaro for free.

    All comments are appreciated.
