    Is he worth the extra coins over the 89 because the stats look barely any different?

    Prime Best vs Prime Figo anyone?

    Been using Figo for a couple of weeks now and starting to really enjoy him, but can't help having my head turned by prime Best.

    Is he really that much better? Is his physicality a problem? I'm not much of a dribbler so would prefer them to link up passes and make runs.

    That's exactly why they do it because they will be "interesting for people" most people like me have been waiting since release for them this way EA can keep Fifa 19 going for longer clever move tbh !

    After making massive profit selling my bought 84 rated cards for 2k for 5.5k++ each, I manage to buy toty neymar next to eusebio.

    Now I am in doubt who to play as CCAM in a 4231. This is my team. What do you think?

    Most pro Players will quit WL, after Cups are ending.
    FIFA 19 will be dead earlier than Fifa 18.

    When I realize how many bad icons are not yet available, I do not want to imagine when the big boys will come.
    July ? August ?

    Guys I currently have Prime Desailly and was thinking to upgrade him
    Debate is between Prime Maldini/Toty Varane
    Other cb is toty vvd, gk will be courtois with varane or untrad ddg with Maldini, who would you pick? Nostalgia and experience from last year say Maldini but only heard good reviews about Varane

    Also is Prime Blanc>Desailly too?

    I have about 2 mill to spend on a CDM pairing. Considering trying out prime Veron and 85 Blanc. Opinions?

    88 Petit and 88 Seedorf , Blanc is average , the only good things about him are his pace, height and shooting for a CDM. Petit is much stronger and more aggressive and has better defending, can actually control a ball and has better passing. Seedorf is a great all rounder and would play well as a play maker next to Petit.

    Cheers. You don't think there could be issued with one H/H and one H/M?

    Tried 88 Petit in the start, found him too clunky, but might give him a go again.

    88 Petit is good.. But would always prefer Blanc over him... Had both earlier.. sold Blanc and got Rijkaard... Blanc offers so much in defence.... Sold petit and Rijkaard, got Blanc and now close to getting base vieira

    no the work rates won't be an issue, just have petit on stay back instructions.

    So you're looking at Blanc & Vieira as a pairing?

    Think I'll wait until the patch to make a decision, moving away from the 4231 if the finesse nerfing is as good as they say...

    Yep... I defend manually more than required... so my defenders are out of position and want good defensive cover because of that....was thinking of Rijkaard+Vieira earlier... but rijkaard is so bad, his tackling is good, but he wasn't in position as frequently as Blanc is....

    Yeah I defend in the same way, so pace is important. Think I'll give Blanc a go, he was good for me last year
