Favourite player that no longer cuts the mustard?

Who has been your favourite player this season that no longer makes it into your first team?

Where are they now? Warming the bench, retiring in your club, sold, or worse yet, submitted into an SBC?

For me it's mid Ronaldinho.

Going into this game he was the one player I knew I wanted to use this season. I managed to get him back in November I think.

He's played 511 games for me at CAM. He's scored 255 and created 234.

More importantly, he was a joy to play with.

As TOTS progressed, I found him slowly feeling weaker and weaker as my squad improved around my mainstay.

Finally, when I packed TOTS Neymar, he was relegated to my fitness team.

Now, as I continue to look to improve my team, I'm contemplating cashing him in. I'm not quite sure I can bring myself to do it.

How about you?

    Many of my beloved cards have been fallen prey to the SBC sausage grinder, mostly to pack dupes and fodder from TOTS guarantees :'(

    Belotti
    Mid roberto Carlos
    Bday lozano
    Bday bellarabi

    These ones were not favorites, actually didn't care for them at all. Still have pause to submit though, because you can never get them back

    Dont do it. I have mid ronaldinho untradeable too. He goes missing sometimes but other games he’ll bag a hat trick or provide 2-3 assists. He’s still very good, just not as consistent as some tots but hes in my team to stay

    Mine's tradeable though!

    Wish he wasn't. Then I could just keep him and not worry about the upgrades I'm missing out on!

    You're keeping a 1.7mil card on your fitness team, you absolute madman. :joy: Sell him!

    I have one squad, and the second any tradeable card isn't in the starting 11 they're on the market

    I still use his baby at LM and he is brilliant.

    84 Mcginn and base Carlos, the latter still has a sentimental place on the bench.

    Would definitely sell asap. He’s not worth 1.7 mil at this stage considering the other options you have in that price range

    88 Ben Yedder. Can't do anything if there is Ramos and Varane TOTS in defence or Boateng FB.

    FB Iniesta and Villa. Both were brilliant until tots but seriously dropped off when all the insane cards for released.

    Moments Aaron Ramsey. 432 games 132 goals 132 assists from cdm mostly wl and rivals. Been replaced by 99 de bruyne. Too sentimental to put him in a sbc and I'm an arsenal fan.

    I love him too.

    I upgraded him and FB Bakayoko to Modric and Renato Sanches.

    I miss my old two though.

    Kimmich and Davies Moments. Now i have the TOTS

    i regretted putting them to SBC, could have used them for cover when the market was turning upwards and just buy the TOTS versions back

    TOTY Mane, but I can’t bring myself to benching him. Would have sold him a long time ago if he actually would have been tradeable.

    Potm Ben Yedder. Replaced by swaps kaka after 900 games. Wil never use him in sbc. Stays on the bench

    Baby Crespo, mid ADP. Still feel better on the ball than TOTS cards, I don't know why I'm bound to useless numbers on the cards.

    FB Rooney. This was his last weekend for me. I've got 300 odd goals from 400 games (all online) played him in a variety of positions too but he just wasn't up to the job anymore during the last WL.

    EoaE Villa, Flashback Fabregas and Iniesta and Scream Pique

    Loved my Spanish legends team, it was only around March I started phasing them out one by one. Not out any into an SBC though.
