    A heads up if any of you are looking for a sub mill striker. I packed base Dalglish out the SBC and gave him a run out and he is absolutely fantastic. The runs he makes and finishing are 👌🏼 If your not reliant on 5 star skills I’d massively recommend him.

    Mr 1000, base Eusebio has returned ♥

    Was going to get the mid but after selling Beckham, rank 1 rewards and selling my tradeable fodder I realised I wasn't far of the 89...so opened a few packs to get the extra 150k I needed...

    Figured with him going out of packs soon and being highly desirable my coins should be safe with him...

    Might have to sell before TOTY if I want to do my yearly TOTY binge but hopefully can enjoy him for a month or so without losing to much, nice strong like to my POTM CR7 to 👍

    I can get the mid also to partner potm cr7 but sadly can’t afford baby eus.

    Unsure whether to just go for it? It’s either all coins into Eusebio or get IF neymar to play up front and mid zidane to replace rttk bernardo

    Are you guys selling your mid Icons anytime soon? Prime Icons is just around the corner, the base will go out of packs but mid remain if we go by the 2 previous FIFAs.

    Mid R9 went from 9.5m to 8.2m on PS between 1-31st December last year then declined further ever since.

    Similar for prob most other cards as the prime is for most parts better than the mid? Also guess some base icons will hold value as they got different stats/positions and will be out of packs.

    Im curious too. Now i have base Cruyff and planning to sell him soon to get the mid or try another icon, but dont know when to sell. Will his price drop, when the primes are released ?

    When are the primes released?

    For main player / CF would people go 91 Cruyff or 89 Eusebio.

    I skill, but not like a mad man, also who is likely to hold value better?

    the base prob gonna hold value better than the mid since it will go out of packs can prob almost make a straight swap a week after primes are released from base to mid Cruyff.

    Some of the better mids may rise when the prime version is out and players realise the prime version costs through the roof.

    Base Torres is criminally under-rated. Plays much better than the mid version and the on card display rating are easy to make the average Joe think he's not all that. Torres is a clinical finisher (91 composure) and is the best striker I've used in terms of the off ball runs through the defence. His timing and positioning is spot on, Torres has bossed Kimpebe and Varane countless times for me in champs playoff.

    I just checked thi price last year. Even the top tier base icons dropped in price 2 weeks before primes was out

    He’s clunky. Dreadful in bad gameplay imo as he can’t turn.

    I used him at RAM a few times and he was great. Don’t know why but he feels like he has super high aggression the way he fights for the ball.

    Best icon CM for 2.5 mill range. Would be on balanced instructions. 94 zidane?

    sold mid Vieira and mid VDS together with if Mbappe, Cordoba, and if Messi for a profit.

    I usually never do this but partly wanted to downgrade my team to reduce toxic lvls when I play rivals/wl and save up some money to buy 1 or 2 TOTYs (really want a TOTY Kante)

    Did invest in base Eusebio thou as I reckon he gonna hold his price well if we are to go by the previous FIFA but the team is less stacked overall now

    Think his base version is better, also with base going out of packs in prob 2 weeks its likely to hold its price better.

    Yea works for me, got him untradeable been running him there for 40 games now, always solid when he gets in front of goal and got the pace/passing/dribbling needed imo.

    Not from my experience The mid torres is much worse, felt dreadful, missing easy sitters.

    Perhaps it's our own gameplay points of view with input lag etc but a player with 84 agility and 80 balance shouldn't be turning like a truck...

    Going full circle again on base Eusebio as well :D scored 12 goals in 4 games taking me from div 2 to div 1 just now, where I've been stuck for some time since the reset. Dunno if it's the patches but plays better than 2-3 weeks ago, even shots from outside the box and finesses fly in now and feels really good on the ball.

    It’s his body type & height that effects ability to turn as much as anything. CR7 for example has a special body type which allows him to turn better than players with similar height / stats. A player who has short / lean body type turns with ease regardless of balance / agility.

    I used base Torres for a while. Squad battles he’s super effective. Good gameplay and he’s fine. Average to poor gameplay and he’s useless. Sadly, good gameplay is infrequent online for me.

    Packed VDS from the base icon SBC, he’s really good. Makes so many 1v1 saves. Anyone else used him?

    Seen a few of the streamers or Pro's use mid VDS (Gorilla certainly likes him). I've used the mid too and he's good, but also prone to errors like every other keeper. I'm sure the Base is just as good as the mid, tbh. And he's relatively good value considering how much icon keepers are.

    Anyone here know if baby and mid Eusebio have the same body type in game?
