    Dockal, Vako, and Vela all in TOTW Predictions. Vela would be tempting.

    NIF Dockal may be the single worst looking gold CAM in the game

    Hot take. Ibra is awful. Villa twice the player, Giovinco 10x the player.

    skip bayless?

    Chubbs would be the type of guy to give Skip Bayless/Stephen A. Smith-esque takes

    I think @Antparry92 has said Jozy Altidore should retire as a professional athlete and Brad Guzan wouldn't make a roster in the Welsh 3rd division.

    i agree with both of those statements

    Not quite :joy:
    Only thing about Jozy I have said is that he was absolutely diabolical in England (hardly a hot take).

    As for Guzan I did say I wouldn’t want him as first choice keeper in the MLS purely again because of how poor he was over in England. If he was playing Welsh 2nd/3rd tier he’d be playing with me :joy:

    Urgh...that time has come when the MLS squad is no longer competitive, like not even slightly :(

    Have gone on a 5 game streak without a win, even though I was doing alright in WL with better sides.

    Josef has a touch like Lukaku, trampoline foot, it’s honestly unbearable. Gerso, LOL. Ossie much like irl is a shadow of his former self, can’t pass and stands and marks space but we don’t have any other viable CDM options really

    Monday of last week I picked up 85 gattuso as my cdm for my hybrid but then sold friday to do juanfran to pair with my untradeable cb hernandez and use coins to stock up on mls players for sbc. Had seven teams left to complete, icon sbc drops, baby icons go through the roof and rare silvers and bronzes skyrocketed as well... talk about bad timing.

    Went 3-1 in rivals last night. Really enjoying the team. Subbing of Ibra at half with Villa and Giovinco around 70m with Villalba. Bradley is still a good in game like every other year for me

    They are actually really good. The RB is the stand out. Feels quicker and stronger than his stats would suggest. 4* skills is always fun too on a defender. The CB is a monster. 6'6'' and strong. CDM has a good Longshot on him and scored off a corner or two iirc.

    That Vela looks tasty. May just have to upgrade on Almiron with him. Too bad his stamina is pretty poor.

    That Dockal looks useless lol

    Not bad, Vela in for Almiron, although Almiron is really good for the formation I run because of his pace. And Villalba out wide for Velas old card. Dockal in my SB team

    What i do is play 2 SB games a day, usually guarantees me gold 1/elite 3. then whatever I can in Div rivals, I always hover on Rank 2 so. And since I now play WL I do that. Made 200k coins so far without trading

    really depends how much you play and how good you are online. For me, I'm a mediocre player, so best games to rewards ratio seems to be Gold 2 in SB (playing mainly WC and Legendary) and Tier 3 in Div Rivals (only need a handful of wins to hit that).

    Might even give him catalyst, since I want to bump up his passing and get him sick free kicks, but I do wish he had better shot power. Finished gold 3 in WL last week so I’m gonna wait to see if I get Vela as reward pick

    Definitely wouldnt mind a red Vela for a supersub/main team. Will be happy if I get Sandro and VVD instead though.

    the trend so far for League SBC player upgrades has been +7 for low golds (Vormer, Hurtado, Davies, Pavón), +9 for high silvers (Forestieri, Quiñones, Chevalier), and +5 for the only 80 rated (Zárate). Overall ratings have varied from 82 to 85.

    From an individual achievmenet standpoint, I don't really see a consistent rhyme or reason to the selection. The positions have even been random (two strikers for Liga MX, a CB & a striker for Champo, etc). But based on the player ratings picked so far looks like we could be looking at a range of players from around 73 to 80. That doesn't really narrow things down... but they could pick someone not obvious for our selection.

    I still think it'll be someone popular like Ibra and Josef, but could be cool to see some less popular choices too. Idk like a Tyler Adams, Michael Barrios, Opara, etc.

    Think maybe they wait till after the awards are voted for for MLS? Use a couple of the winners as the SBC choices?

    True, if we got another MVP SBC that could rule someone out for the League SBC. When are those awards decided?

    Here is the link for the nominees. Finalists chosen on 10/31/2018 and think they do the winners during the MLS Cup final.
