    Have never really been interested in icons/legends until I used ADP very recently. Think I might veer a lot more that way this year, especially as Raul was my childhood hero.

    Any general tips to not get massively burned on icon prices? Like is there a particularly good or bad time to buy them? Presumably in the first week or so they’re going to be as cheap as they’ll be in a long long time?

    Best year for icons yet at least from the selection that we have.

    Can’t wait to see how guys like Eusebio, Cruyff, Rivaldo, Baggio and Socrates play.

    @BRISTOL86 generally buy ASAP as they shoot up in the first week or 2 as people gather coins.

    With icons unless you’re using the team regularly and care about using one the whole year, it’s best to keep on sale at an inflated price when not using them incase the sell due to a lazy buyer.

    Also, there’s a few points in the year where they dip pretty hard and then rise again, Black Friday, toty etc and usually major events which do pack deals, so if coins are more important than a record sell a week early and buy again when you’re happy with the saving, but be careful not to get too greedy and wait too long.

    Thanks mate. My plan is to get Raul ASAP and spend the rest of the year upgrading around him so will try and get him in the early stages depending on pack luck and price.

    What do we think gerrards middle card will start and settle at? Pre release 6-700k? £1M there after?

    The end of career card doesn't look that good so will settle at round 500k after the first few weeks where as the middle version (the one with 80 pace) should settle at around 1.2mill after a month but start off at around 700k first week and then increase quite quickly once the full game comes out.

    Excited about this
    Not normally the richest on this game but the aim this year is to have 4 or 5 so I can basically have all my favourite players in the same team and on full chem

    There are so many I want to try this year. I think I'm gonna go for Gerrard and Makelele for sure though.
