    Great team.

    Does Socrates have a headband in game?

    Thanks, man! About to try him out for the first time. I will report back post-haste!

    Lovely goal!

    Not going to lie but I was looking at baby goats last night and was tempted by a sp of 700k on a couple that wasn’t selling hoping they relist lower, but they didn’t and listed higher! :'(

    How has he been for you? Super ❤️❤️❤️❤️ I’m guessing by your initial goal!

    I was also pleasantly surprised by his price this week. Last year I paid one million coins for him the day before release. 700k seems a steal - and he is VERY fun to play with. He's quick as a cat, agile as could be, and he just has this verve to him - not a consummate striker by any stretch of the imagination - he's weak and his shot isn't anywhere near even the 90 LW - but he's very, very fun to play with.

    By the way, official forum decorum denotes that the proper adjectival expression is "horned" - as in the horns of a goat.

    I will get to work on making more highlights right NOW!

    The bad news is: no headband in game.

    The good news is: Socrates is a beast. An absolute animal.

    The Official Goat Goal of the Day:

  • James Libby

    The GOAT has four goals and three assists in seven games (and that's with a random DC loss).

    Socrates is incredible - the poor man's Gullit. He has the strength to hold the ball up and the agility to dribble by his defender. His passing is excellent, but his shooting is merely decent. Ribery has been my standout player - he's absolutely tearing it up. I've been forced to try some new formations, as 41212 wasn't working all that well. 4231 wide was my best formation so far, but I want to pair Socrates with Henry in a 4411 next. Something tells me Socrates may even be best at striker. I can only take it one game at a time.

    Another note of consequence: Kimpembe is every bit as good as Umtiti - so I switched them out. Haven't noticed a difference. Then again, my defense is just plain terrible. I'm struggling with the game in general so far. My shooting is inconsistent and I'm blowing easy opportunities and then banging howlers. It's bizarre.

    My nephew, who is an Elite WL player, was in the party with me today - complaining that he hasn't hit his stride yet either. He's the type to obsess over meta - to strive for the OPest of players at all costs - and he was claiming that target men are the new meta. "Why don't you use Giroud then?" I teased him (unfortunately he's a Chelsea fan).

    This little ❤️❤️❤️❤️ proceeds to buy Giroud and RIP 10 goals in four games with him. I mean he's just screaming about how unstoppable Giroud is, banging headers and ripping bicycle kicks (I ❤️❤️❤️❤️ you not). He said he was just spamming headers and causing chaos with the big man.

    And it's got me thinking: what IS the best combo up top to surround the GOAT with?!?

    Nothing spectacular, but happy to be slowly acclimating to the new shooting system - that was my FIRST low-driven goal!

    The Goat went on a SAVAGE run today... I could feel it.... finally. And you can just see it in the quality of the finishes.

    https://xboxclips.com/Father Wack/93d05848-1f36-4a52-8dc3-3e78bc2bbdab

    I've been really unimpressed with the xboxdvr gifs, and for whatever reason, the gif-maker simply will NOT load on xboxclips - if anyone has any advice on what to do, or other ways to make high-quality gifs, it was a big part of the GOAT forum last year. You could always count on GOAT gifs day in and day out. Someone help!

    Coming into this game, my confidence was low. Day before I'd drawn and lost. Started the game, and almost immediately get scored on by some grub I've never even heard of (Cramarick?). As the first half ends, a graphic flashes up on the screen essentially denoting that Henry has had a bunch of chances but hasn't scored - 21 touches or something like that (I was surprised).

    Then this happened:

    A scintillating strike with the outside of the boot and it just ROCKETS into that upper-corner. Let's see it again from a different angle:
