There's no replacing RTTF Mbabu

So I packed headliners Walker as an untradeable and was able to put him in my mixed league squad.

After about 50 games, I went back to RTTF Mbabu and he's just miles better. Good thing is both cards can still get upgraded, but I doubt Walker will reach similar level.

Anyone else feel the same way?

    Interesting.

    I have found HL Walker to be the best RB card I have used and has basically sorted me out for the remainder of the game.

    Mbabu must me amazing!!

    Never used him as he is now (had the loan card prior to the first upgrade and used a lot in friendlies).

    Yes Walker is still very good, not a bad card by any means

    Hes NIF was in my starter eleven since early game, and the RTTF edition was an obvious upgrade for me. I haven't feel tempted to change that card. It's so good. Special mention to IF Capa with an all Spanish team that I used as a B squad for a short period. But RTTF Mbabu is on another level.

    Bit disappointed I missed that SBC schar to link Mbabu. Picked up RTTF Sancho for 120k last week. Might try to hybrid them in

    The card is great and he's also brilliant as third CB in a 3 back

    Go for an icon cb from swaps to link him

    I find normal Walker better than RTFF Mbabu never mind the headliner, he is so clunky and unresposnive on the ball and also his 77 defensive awareness feels about 70 he is so poor positionally, Walker with high defensive workrates always seems to be in the right place to defend. Hes not a bad card but RTFF Mbabu doesnt live up to the stats imo.

    Different people have different opinions but no way is Mbabu miles better than headliner Walker, could argue he plays slightly better for you but miles better full stop is a stretch.

    Mbabu is fantastic. Took Zambrotta from Icon Swaps but if I could fit Mbabu into my main team I'd move the former to LB.

    P. S. Please beat Malmo 👀
    What an insane card he will be at 86 rated.

    I played some guy who put him at cb, absolutely ridiculous. He's like the Micah Richards of the early fifas.

    Forgot he was a live item. Bolasie, Kent, Corona, Gedson could all be brilliant with another upgrade as well

    Mbaby is a beast. I took Zambrotta from iconswaps though since i really need icon links atm. Zambrotta is very very good too.

    Bumping this up. I packed TOTY Trent untradable, he’s being kept out of the team by Mbabu, the man is simply insane. Currently playing 532 with him as a CB, also played him RB, just a great card.

    Mbabu for me was up there with the best CB's funnily enough that I've used all year. I only had the loan, gutted I didnt get him when I had the chance. I prefer my full backs a bit more agile but when i used him CB he was next level

    He’s RCB for me in the back 5. Few times this weekend players have got alongside him and tried to run in behind not realising its Mbabu rather then a centre back, catches them and pushes them off the ball, he’s quality.

    Packed Walker hl also, but for me Mbabu is pure class.. Walker is so poor and sluggish

    Mbabu was free and is already better then Lala, another upgrade he’ll be a joke.
