    Guys, swap the left hand side and Petit for RTTF Alonso, POTM Hazard and 88 Vieira? Feels a bit of a waste having Hazard on the bench :/

    EydwvHM.jpg

    Is 88 Vieira noticeably better than prime Petit?

    92 Maldini or TOTY Van Dijk or Prime Rio

    As one of your CBs. Who do you pick?

    Packed Courtois, icardi, couple of in forms and a few 83+ from the nakata SBCs. Just got the 83 squad, bronzes and silvers to go. Very good value for future SBC fodder

    Tempted to do that sbc purely to create a full Japanese/Asian team.
  • Why do people use Prime Hernandez over his middle?

    Differences look tiny, and i'd argue that i'd rather have the middle ones extra composure.

    Recently got Gullit 90 and 88 vieira in my midfield by selling toty messi. They have absolutely changed how effective my team is. I’m just wondering those that run these two who do you aim for as the third man in a midfield 3? Pogba nif currently alongside them and he’s epic but I just wondered what the upgrade path for him is.

    Also I have TOTY Neymar fb ibra and Toty Mbappe upfront

    My back line is pretty standard of Sandro nif Ramos nif varane nif lala 86

    Selling messi to upgrade my midfield made such a huge positive difference but what are people’s experiences for the defence? I’m tempted to shift neymar for his nif and bring in ; toty ramos : toty varane or toty varane and Ferdinand so that the team is a little more balanced.

    Can anyone share any wisdom?

    89 Cruyff for me but I'm sure not many will agree :)

    I usually play 442 so only have 2 midfielders but played 4312 this weekend with 3 and still got E1. I use the prime versions of each Gullit and Vieira which for all intensive purposes are very similar to what you have and TOTY Modric.

    Depending on how you like to play you can go for a CM which can attack and defend or add a 4th attacker. Guys like Matthaus, Modric TOTY, Seedorf, Henry, Mbappe, Salah, Bale or perhaps a Eusebio would make sense in that role.

    If you go for a defender get one of the TOTY CB's. Skip Prime Ferdinand. I use Prime Ferdinand and TOTY Ramos but had I not done Ferdinand's icon sbc I would 100% use Ramos and Varane's toty.

    How is Nesta? Ridiculously cheap for a reason?

    Pretty sure he has 30 something agility which is simply not competitive.

    Current team =

    TOTY Neymar FB ibra TOTY mbappe

    Gullit 90 vieira 88 nif pogba

    87 Sandro Ramos varane 86 lala

    Courtois

    If I sold neymar I could go

    Toty varane / Ramos / nif neymar

    Or

    Toty varane / 85 ferdinand ( kante or kdb) regular neymar

    2 examples

    Never really upgraded my defence in any fifa and seen much of a difference

    That was my concern. Pity really, would have liked to use him.

    Middle has been brilliant for me at LCM in a 4321. Just a solid all-rounder

    Blanc good, Petit good, Rijkaard not good, Ballack 89 not good, base lothar good but short... Will try Base viera next...

    Loved it when I had petit and Blanc...

    Good ones are Matthaus, seedorf mid, ballack, but to be fair for their price next in line after gullit and vieira is probably toty kante or kdb depending on if you want more defensive support or attack

    I have tried pretty much all Icons and cards of the game (almost) and I can officially say that Prime Eusebio is probably the best offensive player of the game.

    He is litterally insane.

    I hope to one day be able to do his sbc late in the year or even just afford his 89. Looks incredible

    His 89 is already completely insane. Did 285 games with Euseb 89. I have then gone R9 94 but did not like him that much due to MM Workrate mostly and missing Euseb. Went for the prime this time (had already tried prime Euseb and had gone back to Euseb 89 as I could not justify the price diff) and now after 35 games I see why he is slightly more expensive than the 89 version. His finishing is even better. He's completely insane, but the 89 is already a very, very special player.

    Anyone use the mid Eusebio? Thinking about him behind Ibra in a 4411 or duo striker 4222

    I didn’t get the opportunity to use those type of players until tots when they were giving away one every week and what not. But did end up getting to do R9 and Gullit prime sbc For much less than I thought so if that is a thing come tots time again I will be happy.

    Anyone else just not interested in Eubebio. Can afford his cards, think he looks alright but just doesn't interest me.

    Probs because I never seen or heard of him as a kid
