Stand out PIM icons that no one uses

As many of you are packing all the PIM icons, are there any that you’ve tried that have stood out?

I can recommend a few definitely worth trying:

Petit
Moore
Gerrard
Beckham
Drogba
Van De Sar

And some that I don’t think are worth the time:

Lineker
Owen
Campbell
Giggs
Maradona

    You think Maradona isn’t worth the time? 👀

    Figo is awesome. Vidic is a rock.

    He might be worth it you were a fan of his. Otherwise the only point in doing a 98 rated CAM would be for the meta aspect - which he does not excel in. It’s no wonder no one really uses him.

    Oh yeah forgot about Vidic, he’s in my Man U P&P team and as you say, is a rock. Not tried Figo yet that’s a good shout.

    I don’t know if many people use him or not but I have to admit that Kaka is amazing at CAM. He’s in my main team now.

    Disagree on Maradona, did his SBC yesterday and he was sublime in midfield. What a card, ball glued to his feet and scored a couple of rockets from outside the box, and real surprise for me.

    Each to their own though.

    He runs
    He runs in behind ..:

    He gets through on goal in good gameplay or bad gameplay..:

    Even when my 97 rated team all start falling over ..:he remains on his feet …and still gets in behind aye

    I played only one game with Butra, just to try him replacing Cruyff. I know its just one game, but omg, he was really quick, he made many more runs than Cruyff and I did not need any skill move to dribble with him. Really surprised.

    Vidic is fantastic. Great defensively and so aggressive. I think I’ve only played against him once or twice this year but he’s been amazing for me

    George Best is amazing, but I hardly ever play against him.

    Drogba was brilliant for me as well but I moved on to Eusebio and Puskas (also highly recommended).

    I messed around with an icon team this past weekend.

    Honestly, Vieira and R10 were most fun. Not appropriate answers for this topic though.

    I found Hagi to be quite good. Play him at RW so he can cut onto his strong foot. 5 star SM and tight dribbling. Fun card. For the price, a great value compared to Garrincha, R10, etc.

    I'll second Cole. I had his baby and mid earlier this year, and they just didn't do it for me. The PIM hits different though and finally feels like a proper Ashley Cole card. The big edge he has over Carlos is the WF/SM combo, because Carlos is horrific there. The PIM version of Cole is the only version with 4 star SM.

    Agreed. Unbelievable card. Virgins don’t want to use him cos he’s not got 5 star weak foot though. One of the best players of all time and one of the best cards in the game if you actually have any football knowledge and don’t just spam long balls to Mbappe
