    Do people think there is a 400k difference between 87 and 89 Socrates? Trying to think which to pick up. How does he compare to 89 dinho if anybody has used both?

    I don't think there's enough of a difference to justify the difference in cost. However, there are people on here who think the upgrade is noticeable and worth paying for.

    I think there's a noticeable difference. He feels a lot smoother and has better workrates too

    Didn't even notice work rates. I tried 87 and only gripe was balance, much difference on 89?

    :joy:

    Wait...you serious? :neutral:

    Yes

    Lampard, ballack and veron were all clunky as hell

    Makekele was good but felt the same as matuidi for 100 times the price

    Lothar was excellent but you have to buy cm desailly to use him really

    As someone who doesn't shoot from range much they just aren't worth it

    Guys

    I'm playing a 4231 wide, I'm in need of a box to box second CDM for 1.3 mil, any Icons that fit the bill?

    You got any ideas for me then @Blarix?

    He's an animal for me

    Him and Allan make so many tackles and interceptions

    Matuidi is an absolute tank this year. On the same level of 85 Seedorf and surely better than any Makelele.

    Is it more important to have a solid defence or an amazing attack this year? Aka, get 88 viera and petit or get Ronaldinho? Prime

    always attack

    @Scutch Ping it backpost for him from a corner. If the ball doesnt go in, generally half of the players in the box are going to be on the floor from him launching at it. Its brilliant, especially when people throw everyone at near post to stop that.

    I bought him after I faced him in WL mate, and every single corner or freekick I noticed my opponent was highlighting Fellaini for the ball in, like you said. I couldn't get anywhere near him! In the midfield he was battling for everything. I'm hearing his 90+ stats won't reduce either. Ridiculous.

    They will switch to other stats throughout the year, sometimes one and sometimes both will change

    That could be another month or two away though mate, and the 90 pace and passing stays on that until then.

    Oh yea no doubt, just meant as info in the long run in case you didn't know.

    Yeah had to look it up before I bought him, mate :)

    Good stuff, gonna give him a go myself too soon, cheers for the review, made my mind up.

    No brainer at that price with those stats, even if it's just for another month they'll change again anyway and he'll still be OP as a CDM.

    Jeez you weren't wrong on fellaini so far, 4 games 4 wins in WL, he's everywhere and he's strong as hell

    Veron prime.

    Yeah i was thinking about Prime Veron, he looks great, he's big, strong, great passing and great long shots, pretty much what I want from my second CDM.

    You used him @Blarix?

    Happens every year . Last year missed out on r94 for 900k when he was going for 7 mill. I rather never see it than miss it like that.

    You reckon he'd be any good at CAM? Clunkiness doesn't really bother me too much, I've been using SMS at CAM and find he's actually pretty good

    Used him at cm but his work rates are for CAM so im sure he'll be good.

    If you can get Veron and pogba i would go for that.

    Mad how the 88 with those stats can be so bad, one of the cards I most looking forward to use aswell! Kondogbia blows him off the field

    Prime rijkaard is great at cdm. His passing makes starting an attack so easy, and he always gets in the opponents face.
