I hope some of you might disagree and make me feel better about my choices but -

It seemed like a fun goal to grind out POTM Mbappe instead of all those icon sbc’s which I did. Already had a full untradeable team from around 10m coins with only tradeable player being 91 Cruyff, I thought Imma replace Cruyff with Mbappe and have 1.9m coins spare for when tots starts of whatever ánd a full untradeable team.

But my god, what a bad card is that. Misses chances my goalkeeper would have buried. I read more people with those complaints but Ive used gold Mbappe alot and loved the card?! I really dont know how, but the gold seemed better. Ofcourse, that’s not possible.. but wtf is going on??

TLDR; I miss 91 Cruyff already and don’t like POTM Mbappe 🤣

    I can feel some of your pain as only recently discovered 91 Cruyff and he's absolutely sublime. However POTM Mbappe scores for fun for me so I'd defo stick with him and just work out his play style. For me he is better than the HL card even, which I know is just weird. Thought it was some kind of honeymoon period but GPG ratio is much better than the HL was.

    Persevere, he's very different to Cruyff but a great goalscorer.

    May I ask what formation and position? :)

    Mbappe is the most boring card on the game. He's also better on the wing

    Style of play matters a lot with comparing these

    People sitting back spamming though balls and lob through balls go mbappe.
    People looking to build up play and pass/LS dribble or skill their way through go Cruyff.
    There's a third type that use mbappe wide to stretch the defense (or spam sprint up goal line and pull back!).

    Assume you're the second one. I'd say try him wide if you haven't already.

    3 games in and scored 10 goals damn. One match 5 one 3 one 2 thats rock solid. Hopefully it stays that way. Only bummer is I got a 2m winger now while I wanted a striker 🤣

    ST or RCAM in 4222 mainly in game, or line ST in 451. With 91 Cruyff and CR7 around him.
