    TOTS Zlatan is one of those cards that has such high technical attributes that there's not much left to boost besides pace (granted his agility and balance could use some help). So far it's been nice having a near max pace Zlatan. He doesn't feel as fast as the boosts would suggest, but the pace boost is really nice.

    You could always try Engine on him. Agility and dribbling go a far way concerning that 'pace feeling'.

    I however somehow can't bring myself to apply anything other than Basic chem at the moment.

    That +5 in Sprint Speed, Agility and Jumping somehow makes me not want to compromise on any of those categories..

    I think the boost in acceleration is more important than sprint speed.

    Yeah.. I'm torn that one.. he surprisingly has a very quick getaway for me.. Usually I'd agree 100% with you, but I'm afraid he might lose the thread he is on corners with less agility and jumping :/

    I'll give it a go after WL..

    What’s up with the price of Zlatan. I was going to buy him, but he seems to be increasing not dropping :(

    Zlatan with a 10.0 game rating and hattrick to seal G2 for me... Whew that was intense

    28 goals and 9 assists in 28 WL games (I didn't have him until my 3rd WL game)

    1) yes, Vieira should get punished for hacking down a god.

    2) after I re-applied Basic chem style to my TOTS Zlatan he elevated to a different plane of existence. I had around 63 games with Shadow or Catalyst on him (the first 7 were on Basic) and he managed 71 goals in 70 apps in that period.

    Zlatan now has 88 apps and 119 goals since the switch back to Basic. That's a mere 48 goals in 18 apps. He is un... ....stopp.... ....able.

    I'm guessing this is why:
    * That 92 sprint speed is enough to break away against slower defenders whilst the slower speed helps a ton on controlling the ball on the run and making a move before it's too late.
    * 99 curve helps a lot on those bended longshots and finesses
    * 99 volleys make sure he doesn't miss one. Period.
    * +5 jumping on his 6'5" frame juuust puts him in position to contend with the VVDs of this world on corners
    * that 93 agility and 99 dribbling bump seems to put him over some threshold. Going around defenders with a skillmove is a breeze now and he started to do those overhead, bicycle and scorpion kicks again.
    * I also suspect that the slight bump in vision and passing help him on 1-2s and creating space on a through ball.

    For his FB I always liked Marksman at striker. Makes him almost unbeatable in the air as well as giving him a bit of agility and bringing his dribbling near max. And of course nearly maxing every singl shooting star

    Long time no see ! The King is still going strong. Simply too strong and too fast for those pathetic mortals. His scoop turns are broken.

    Mine is still going strong too. He hit the 200 goal mark this weekend in about 152 games. His ability to provide that one magic moment is incredible.

    I just can't get rid of him. I only switch out my 2nd striker besides him to have some variety in my games. But he is always delivering

    Engine.
    The running fake shot gives him a pace boost as well

    FB Zlatan is an absolute god...play him on 8 chem with scream Forsberg (awful for me) and he's insane...single-handedly carries my team. Play him in a two-striker formation with TOTS Reus. The two play incredible together with their high passing and high shooting stats.

    What is your instruction? I hear that people will set targetman if using marksman.

    Yep. Hes possibly the best player to use Target Man instructions on. Play the ball to him early and often and use his massive strength to hold up and link up player. He still gets plenty of goals too
