    He is amazing. The most fun player I have ever used. Preferred the 95, just feels better in every area. Plus the player model is the one most would recognise.

    I love that you still use Baka. The state of this game...honestly!

    Tried the 91 for about 30/40 games and loved it, so fast and smooth on the ball with a magic left foot. I find prime Hagi to be very similar but not quite on his level. Can't wait for his prime to be released.

    Just like they were in real life too...

    So, here's a question:

    Maradona - CAM or ST?

    I'm thinking of putting EOE Pirlo in at CAM and then switching him for Hagi, whilst benching MVB and bringing him on at the 60th minute as Maradona has low stamina.

    Anyone else use Maradona at ST? How is he?

    I will try his loan this weekend at striker. Weirdly, Basic chem style looks the best on him, something which no other outfield player I’ve used can claim.

    Have you tried switching Blanc and Petit too?

    I tried Petit at CDM before but he was useless. Kept going missing. Whereas Blanc at CDM is superb.

    Yeah, keep blanc at CDM, and petit LCM, that's what I do. Curious to see how Maradona does for you. Got the loan for WL, and really tempted to do the SBC.

    I’ve completed his loan card to try out in the weekend league, that 3 star weak foot worries me at CAM so I’m hoping his avoids weak foot compensates that.

    If he’s better than ADP Prime I will trade him and Larsson Prime in for him.

    3* WF isnt a huge problem. He can still finish with his right quite well, and because of his insane dribbling and 5* SM its usually quite easy to switch the shot to his left

    Brooooooo this loan prime is literally unreal .. like I feel as if it just makes the whole team play better and he's the central focus of every defensive aggression that opens up crazy plays for the unguarded . And these dribbles are just... you can literally spam the stick

    His card is unreal. He’s everywhere, playing like 94’ when he had a body full of coke

    Anybody else notice that Maradona at CAM tends to drop deep a lot? I've instructed him to stay forward but he still ends up in the CDM spot a lot. It's frustrating the **** out of me.

    It’s good. I’m not sure how many players it covers, but I think it’s at least 20 - Maradona, Van Basten, Batistuta, Cruyff,etc.

    Fixed. Changed from a 4-1-2-1-2 to a 4-2-3-1 formation and now he's on fire. Scored two goals today in Divisions that were carbon copies of his second goal against England in the '86 World Cup.

    Used him for the 9 out of the 20 games loan card. I absolutely love him. Wish I can afford him, what a card

    Agreed I was around 15 games in using the 91 before I realised he was a lefty he was banging them in from all angles with his right as I was playing him to That side

    His 97 was amazing. Anyone who says he was crap, or his WF is a problem didn't use him long enough, or it's just not their play style, which is fine. But really, this card is one of the best cards I've ever seen in FUT. I will do his Prime SBC, but I kinda want to see what R9 SBC is like before I do it, if R9 is released before fifa 19.

    What Chem Style do you guys use on prime Maradone, tried Finisher, doesnt seem to make a difference. Overall hes too weak and too slow, if you are not into tricks. The stats on the card dont match his game performance

    I packed him in world cup mode but not impressed , he is to short and weak. Good shoots and dribbling though.
