Thinking of getting the 89 version but playing him CM in 41212(2) would he be wasted there ? I like the look of his height, pass and the 5* weak foot

    i did not like 91 socrates, he felt clunky. At cm would be terrible, esp if ur going 89

    Clunky ? Strange that. I did think he might be a bit of a waste at CM, think I may go for 88 Seedorf instead. You recommend any icon CM’s ? Around 800k ish

    does it have to be an icon? only the top tier icons are worth their value (having used a few of them) imo, and esp at this stage in the game

    Need 1 icon to link with Zlatan to get that 8 chem to him, I’ve alreay got 90 Makelele at CDM but that’s to link with 91 Griezzy so need another ideally

    Haha yep ! Even tried going 5 at the back, I needed that France link for Griezzy. I was thinking tho my choices for the other spot were 88 Seedorf, 86 Ruud, 88 Petit or 89 Ballack
    I haven’t heard very good things about that 86 Ruud, 89 Ballack looks a good choice but his work rate worries me

    I would say so. He doesn’t have any defendsive stat at all.

    I used 89 Socrates at CM for around 200 games and thought he was class. Did everything I needed him to do.

    I've recently upgraded to the 91, playing him at RCM again and he's been even better. In my experience he's not wasted there at all.

    I'd at least give him a go if I were you.

    If I can’t get along with Seedorf then I’ll give him a spin, I’ll be playing the WL this weekend then I’m away for 2 weeks so I might buy him when I build another team, cheers for the input

    I was debating the 91 CB and playing him at CDM
  • I used mid Socrates and I didn’t really like him.

    I was bored and did the pim and he is top drawer at cam. 12 games 12 goals 18 assists. I don’t think he is a cm though.

    I was using 85 Blanc at CM in a 41212(2) but didn’t like him. I made my team feel very defensive.

    I wanted to do Scorates sbc but I’m in need of a CM. This is why I’m not doing him.

    What formation and position? He looks like a great cam but too much like Ibra for ST. I have too many ccams to do him :(

    Looks like he’d be better as a CAM then, exactly what I was thinking to be fair, I’ll try 88 Seedorf and go from there

    The PIM is great for me at CDM, CM, CAM, and ST with Shadow Chem.

    Socrates would propably do a decent job as CM but I think he would be wasted as CM/CDM.
    He is a really nice CAM/CF/ST though

    Worked beautifully for me in there, as long as there's a decent CDM in the mix as well he's an absolute tank at CM.

    4-3-1-2 I bought his mid at 1.8 mil and didn’t think he was worth the coins. It was a combo of workrate, poor balance and being slow on the turn.

    The pim is h/m so he gets around more. He also seems much more agile and strong. The shooting and passing were not the issue before, but are a noticeable upgrade on his best card!

    I’ve got Messi at CAM and thought I’d try someone different, I went for 88 Seedorf, only played a few games with him and he seems a beast to be fair
