    TOTY VVD is better than desailly, blanc, Rio, hierro by a long shot. Can’t comment against maldini as I haven’t used but believe they would be a perfect pairing. Just dominates everything.

    Toty KDB is a different story. I’m sitting here directly comparing him to arguably the best midfielder in the game, gullit. Having 200+ games under his belt, stacking up to the challenge isn’t easy. Seems to me like the height and hair is the only difference. De Bruyne may have a better shot. His defense isn’t as good because his legs aren’t as long and he can’t head the ball as well.

    Not comparing KDB to Gullit, how is he? I’m really holding myself back from buying him right now to ply CCAM behind CR7

    It’s either I get him or 2-3 icons haha

    Been thinking about KDB too, but I’m using prime dinho at CCAM. Can’t bring myself to sell him 😭

    Body style is like Raul. So he’s not the most nimble, but he can hold people off. He’s fast but he’s not leaving anyone in the dust. Dribbbling is great and you shouldn’t hesitate to make skill moves. His passing is the best I’ve used this game. He finds passing lanes. Shooting is what you’d expect from 5* WF and 95+ finishing, longshot, and shot power. Doesn’t make a ton of runs (been playing him CM). But when he does, always in great position.

    He’s solid in defense but doesn’t stand out. Stays on his man, but doesn’t make a ton of interceptions. May have to try a shadow on him.

    I need to try him at CAM. I’m daydreaming of a midfield with gullit, de bruyne, and vieira.

    Socrates plays exactly how I always hoped zlatan would, but the big swede always disappointed me

    Socrates on the other hand is very very good

    Him and butragueno might be the best strike partnership I have used

    Appreciate the input man. Grabbed one 2.29m just now so gonna give him a shot! Hopefully he doesn’t disappoint

    Bought Prime Cruyff and so far really love his position and finishing at ST. I played with his 91 early in the game and i feel more fluent and in control of his passing and his shooting with his prime version

    Which option is best?

    A. R94 & Toty mbappe strikers with gullit at cam

    B. Ruud & Toty mbappe strikers with Toty Modric at cam

    People who use Gullit at ST disgust me so I say A

    Why bro, he has played ST with MvB in his Milan days.

    Icons have rebounded quite nicely since the panic selling yesterday, the Prime Best that I picked up for 1.423 mill has sold for 1.73mill overnight., the 220k profit on him is welcome after all the losses I have had on other icons recently.

    Guys has anyone played with both Euseb 89 and Euseb 93 ?

    Contemplating the change to the prime but i LOVE the baby so much that I am reluctant. Must find as good a card ^^. Is it a true upgrade ? Seems so as per the stats save for a few things... any advice appreciated, thanks

    You spend the extra mill or two over other Icons because he's so well rounded, he is so unique in midfield I feel it's a waste to play him at ST. Should be played between CDM to CAm imo but ideal spot is CM

    ***Important question***

    Does Ronaldinho have his signature freekick technique that was in the past FIFA when he wasn't an icon?
  • As the wide CAM in 4-2-3-1 (probably the right side), which of the following should I go for?

    90 Stoichkov
    88 Best
    90 Figo
    89 Nedved

    Hunter

    Wow I put Hunter on using the Futbin app and he loses a lot more in-game stats than using other chem styles. Looked like one of the worst to use.

    Yet it’s the most popular.

    Despite the stats he really doesn’t need a dribbling boost. Physical boost have no effect.

    For a player like him it’s best to maximises acceleration and shot power

    Cool. The balance stat is included within dribbling and that’s what needs upgraded so Engine would work. But will try Hunter as I’ve got a few of both cards. Cheers.

    Prime Best is fantastic! Playing him on top and he is on fire. That is all.
