    Used 90 Best for 85 matches now. He starts as RM in 4411 then moves to CF via dpad tactics. Record after 2 weekend leagues&rivals is 68 goals and 21assists.

    A very fun card to use. He makes space where there should be none and makes very good runs. Supberb dribbler as well. Fake shot followed by finesse anywhere in range and you can garuntee the opposition keeper has got work to do.

    Been looking at this card for the right wing seen a few reviews now, im giving mbappe a go for now. Hoping theres a dip next friday

    88 Best vs 90 Figo at RCAM... who would you pick?

    Picked up 90 Henry for 1,339,000. Think that's a solid price? Keen to give him a few WL games as I didn't use any of his cards last year.

    He will do work for you in WL - trust in that!

    Sadly wasn't for me, movement was non existent, didn't win headers off goal kicks ever and felt a bit stiff. Good finisher though but I'd expect nothing less

    Despite drastically improving my team. The thought of spending 1.5m on 4/5 meta nif players makes me feel uneasy. I’d much rather smash the 1.5m on one icon.

    Anyone else feel like this?

    Having the same mentality went from cr7 to prime henry but to my surprise cr7 is just better so gonna either buy him back or go for another icon ST.

    Prime Cruyff is the best icon i used this FIFA.(used Ronaldinho, Ronaldo, Eusebio, Gullit etc.) I feel the difrence from 91 version but worth 1,2 mln? I dont know. His shooting and dribbling are top of top level.

  • I’m in two minds whether to sell 89 Blanc and get Varane, then spend the remaining coins on my front 3, still using Jesus, Laca and Firmino as I have no issues creating and scoring with them.

    I’ve tried some new icons this weekend so brief reviews if they help!

    Baby Ballack - he was good without being outstanding. Strong, tall, smooth on the ball but a “stiff” type player in the model of pogba/ Milinković-Savić. Scored some long range shots for me and his finesse is reliable, he’s very handy defending near post corners! Worth 820k? I don’t think so. It did almost feel like having 2 pogba’s In my team though.

    91 Ronaldinho - fun card! He is very strong on the ball and comes out of skill moves faster than anyone else I’ve used. Looks awesome in game and feels very good all around, if I had to compare to someone I’ve used, I would say a much better Mbappe with less pace and more strength

    91 Cruyff - wow what a card! Got me out of jail so many times. Despite the weak foot glitch (he seems to use the outside the foot instead) his finishing is impeccable on both feet. So so silky the smoothest player I’ve used and you can just press B and it’s a goal. Imagine Neymar with a bit more strength and the icon cheese that goes with it. Best player I’ve used this year by far

    It's so annoying. It happened with my eusebio a month ago and they still havent fixed it. It's not like the shot wont go in but in certain situations you require a decent amount of bend on that shot that you dont get when they use the outside of the foot. Makes me think rivaldo could be usable as he will never use his right anyway

    Yeah this sums it up well. He still somehow scores with what looks like unnatural shot techniques, just feels strange he won’t use his left foot a lot of the time. Hopefully they’ll patch it soon

    88 Best is just the....(I think you know what I’ll say). He’s definitely staying in my team till at least TOTY.

    89 MVB is doing well. When the opponent is on me like a hawk I'm having difficulty getting him in position, but when he does get some space he's an absolute goal machine. The only icon who looks similar as a target man is Klose. Might try him out some time.

    I desperately need r9 this year, he was all that brought me joy last year.

    I know they’re gonna leave his sbc til last though as I can imagine him being out of this world again.
