    Would FB Ibra work as a CCAM in 4231 with Prime Eusebio upfront or is it better to swap them around? And is Eusebio good as a lone ST?
    Depends on your play style. The CAM spot drains stamina and Ibra's is already quite low. I did use him there briefly before switching to a 352 full time and he was good but might need to be subbed out.
    I use the Cam quite a lot tbh. U don’t think Eusebio would be wasted at Cam tho? Might actually try out 352! Is it good?:)

    Undecided on the next SBC to complete. Need a box to box player I'm gonna use as one of my two CDMs. Thinking Prime Gullit or PIM Lothar... Leaning towards Lothar solely because he has a moments card. Anyone who's used both can give me some reviews?

    Yeah I like it a lot, give it a go, good CB's are essential of course. There's a 352 guide that has tactics etc in GD.

    Idk if Eusebio would be wasted at CAM but I think his place is at striker.

    Guys, here's a poser:

    Sell 90 Gullit to do the R96 SBC? I'm currently using Ibra up top with Socrates (Gullit next to Vieira)

    IEHMcef.jpg

    Everyone starts on 10 chem. Also almost have EoE Ribery to battle Hazard. Just need a CM if I sold Gullit. Have TOTS Sissoko but doubt he's the replacement I'd need :lol:

    Thoughts?

    Anyone want to talk me down?

    I have both, R9 and Gullit and while I think R9 is great, Top3 striker in the entire game, but if it came down to choosing one or the other, R9 would have to go. Gullit is irreplaceable.

    If that Socrates is tradeable maybe get rid of him instead, Ibra and R9 work great together.

    I’d keep gullit and go with either a version of cr or maybe a tots striker, but that’s only because I’m boycotting r9 after the pim debacle.

    How much you got if you don’t sell gullit?

    Boycotting R9 is going to show EA for sure.

    I’ve got 1m currently. Tradeable players in team are Gullit, VDS and Mendy.

    Also, I have to concede, Socrates has changed my opinion now I’ve stuck him as a striker. He’s just superb there. I actually though about replacing Ibra with prime Butragueno too. I know he’s one of the cheaper original icons but he’s always so good and that 5* weak foot to boot.

    If Socrates was tradeable he wouldn’t be in my team at all. Went through a terrible patch with him, but since moving him to striker he’s been superb.

    Stick the 1M into cheap tots, wait a week. Might have 2M

    risky business with how easy it is to get Tots from Objectives and the EFL SBC , everyone should have atleast 1 or 2 to recycle so they won't go up as much as that. They might go up abit but I can't see them doubling when the objectives aren't even that hard.

    Your right , but there was an expected upsurge in demand becuase they released loads of good SBCS at once so that is a bit different. If they require two Tots for a Bpl Tots SBC then they will shoot up but of they just require 1 they will only go up abit IMO.

    Sold prime Cruyff. I’m very close to pulling the trigger on TOTY Messi. Been wanting to use him all year but kept postponing it because icons are so much easier for links but with considering I’ll probably only play for another 1-2 months I think now is the time.

    Completed big Pete a little while ago to make an all special team bar nif cr up top.

    Must say he’s been very good so far, made some incredible saves with little mistakes and his kicking is a bit better than ddg so very happy with him so far.

    has anyone used mid and prime Butragueno? I've been meaning to try him for ages, I just compared their in games and the mid has better stats in places I didn't expect. Is the Prime really worth the extra 250-300k?

    Only used baby Matthaus, but im sure Gullit will have a much more impact then Matthaus. Matthaus stays the little guy whatever stats you give him. I would definitely go for Gullit
