    Tempted to get Aguero back for Crespo. Getting real sick of his sh*t movement and agility.

    @EddieFicio well I’m going to have to try him aren’t I lol. How does he compare to POTM Hazard?. Thanks

    I probably wouldn't try any cards other than his Prime. It's a brilliant card - especially if you like long shots.

    Taking FK's with him - also full power stuff - is awesome.

    Looking to offload Prime Rijkaard & Prime Ballack to get 88 Vieira - played against him earlier and I couldn't get past him whatsoever - is he seriously that good?
    Anyone used him?

    I used 89 MVB for 6 or 7 games. He was okay. Honestly fun using an icon but no wow factor at all.

    Different players, Rivaldo is more similar to a stoickhov than Hazard @Muzza11

    @hoban95 hahaha i did the opposite! aguero is great just a bit small needed a bigger body/arieal threat.

    No matter what formation I play, I get DESTROYED by the 433-4, which ironically is what I can’t play for the life of me. No idea.

    I don't lose everytime but everytime I play it the opponent gives me fits

    It’s pretty funny, because when I use it I get rolled by everything under the sun and generate no offense whatsoever. Mind boggling.

    Just played a game on 18. Feels like you're playing with all sliders maxed out compared to 19.

    I sold Raul and now I'm sad... :(
    I dont know why, but my gut tells me this weekend EA will drop a set including him and Best. Sold for 1.95 last night which is absurdly overpriced...

    Is Prime Raul worth the coins?

    Hes really a very unique player, just super expensive. I think he is worth it if you surround him with quality

    Haha I just did the same. Tried online season just to see. Gameplay was so smooth until 80th min then lagged a lot. But the game is so different.

    Anyways anyone tried Cannavaro? Im a bit afraid of his height ingame.

    He can jump super high so his height isnt an issue.

    Can someone give a detailed review on 89 Socrates?

    I’m looking to play him behind CR7 as CCAM with Neymar and Mbappe as L/R CAM in a 4231.

    I’m currently playing Neymar as CCAM, albeit on 7 chem. Will he be better than Neymar?

    I was asking this question yesterday, but his balance really worries me

    I think he is fantastic...played him with engine to increase the balance......strength plus 4 star 5 star is very handy...Some people say he's klunky but I havent had any issues...cannon of a shot

    Prime Cruyff is a disappointment.

    So are his baby and I assume the 91 too, he just doesn't make as much impact at the higher levels. Eusebio is way better.

    What is missing for you with Cruyff? I've had the base one and he's been awesome as CAM/CF and ST depending on what formation I've used. He last until end of first half of extra time and then he's usually empty.

    I must admit that Eusebio probably is better as a ST option.

    Hes a very nice player to get highlights and smash people in WL with,but when the going gets tough hes the first one to peace out. Eusebio has way bigger "clutch"

    F2tekks doesnt have a problem with him......he actually got rid of Eusebio

    Yeah it’s completely different. Kinda enjoyed it though, mostly because I could DI whatever I wanted with R9. Tempted to play a few more tbh.

    Neither you or I are f2tekks so thats irrelevant for my personal opinion/experience.

    The kid can make Iñaki Williams look like a world beater

    Still not a autuoriative for various reasons;-)

    I love that they finally have given nedved 4* skills. Some FIFA agi he just had 3*. So annoying as he is one of my favorite players of all time.

    Lets try 90 Griezmann as a lone striker in 4231 :D

    I am so mad that I rage sold my Raul for 1,83 after WL, and now I am hearing is close to 2 mil.

    So I need some help! Bought Eusebio prime promptly played him at ccam with best left cam,Nedved other cam and cr7 up top.

    Eusebio seems run past cr7 and they sort interfere with each other. It’s frustrating as hell as Eusebio is clearly top drawer but I’m missing something with him.

    Wheres his best position?

    Anyone help ? I've slept on it and its still annoying me! Anyone offer any advice? Is Euseibo and out and out striker? Or is he better as an outside cam?
