POTM Thiago Silva worth doing or no?

Looks a solid card, currently have Marquinhos so wondering if it's worth the upgrade. Would be a green link to Roberto Carlos and playing alongside VVD.

    You don't think he's a bit too slow for the current state of the game?

    That's my concerns but he's acceleration & sprint would be both 78 with a shadow, so might be ok. Don't wanna do the SBC for him to be dreadful!

    100% worth it, his pace isn't noticeable at all.

    Also have him alongside Roberto Carlos and VVD.

    Just did him and he will be partnered next to Militao. Have stuck Anchor on him as well, Hopefully he's worth it :#

    I did him , cost me 30k no brainer, helped with 2 sets of tokens and 90 rated sbc for next set of swaps

    Thanks for the comments guys, i've gone for it.

    Managed to do it with players in my club and quite a few of those were untradeable anyway so made perfect sense.

    I’m usually one to do sbcs for players but he hasn’t interested me one bit. If you can afford him and happy to do him do it. He’s lacking pace but still one heck of a defender.
  • Same as done and swapped threw Marquinios into the SBC, used him in the Samba Squad and Ligue 1 Swaps - Been solid for me

    Doesn’t matter mate, doesn’t matter how many new players you bring in, you won’t improve in weekend league

    Pique has 91 sprint speed that's what is keeping me keep him.

    I used him this WL for all 30 matches together with scream Romagnoli in an AC Milan squad with old/current players.

    I use him with Shadow and for me he is very very good. His defensive skills are top notch. Would recommend to partner him with a fast cb with a base pace of 75-80.

    Solid defender tho on a quick break away his not catching anyone. Good as a centre in a 3atb dunno if I’d use him as one half of my centres tho

    Used his base card for over 100 games as was the first high rated player I packed, traded up when this SBC came along and ive got to say I think the card plays worse than the gold.....maybe its just me but i kept getting to about 60 mins and he couldn't do anything.... (so havn't used him apart from the lig 1 icon challenge).

    I use them both and have my right and left back go up field so get out of position often and pique and Thiago have no issues keeping the back defended.

    This is one of those tease SBCs if you ask me....it seems good value but unless you have a real need for a Brazilian or Ligue One CB then I think holding your untradeable 84-87s for perhaps futmas or even buying 3 x 89 players at 25k for future SBCs is coin better spent

    This was my issue. Almost did him before working out that I'd need another 3 players to get him on full chemistry.
