Surprisingly good. Using him balanced CM on 4-3-3 (4) he's on 16 games 9 goals 4 assists. Now I'm playing against tougher opponents in the latter stages of WL, I think I might have to put him on stay back.
Ballack is brilliant at CDM specifically due to his size the amount of interceptions he gets is impressive. It's not on the same level as Blanc but he offers much more than that. I did try him as a more box to box player as he is almost wasted as a holding midfielder but his model suits the holding role much better.
Dropped him when PL TOTS came out and I spunked a load on Son. But he is a very good player, been one of the best LW for most of the game and very underrated. One of those which some people think doesn't play to their stats but I always found very good. I've recently dropped him from my bench though. He's just not good…
I'd say the following would qualify you as being a "dedicated" player. Being an active member of a Fifa forum. Checking in for new content on a regular basis (fifa, here, futbin, twitter etc). Completing the Objectives or weekend league regularly.
I missed out on Nani, thought he was 4* weak foot until it was too late. Still 83 sprint speed is terrible, he would be slowest player in my team by a long way. Wouldn't get on my bench for that reason alone. Agree Fuenzalida is a great sub, I've also dropped him in CM at times. He can mix it in there!
Thought you were a Burnley fan claret n blue until I saw this thread. That pic looks like Ashley Barnes until I zoomed in! I take it that Noble is retiring end of this season then? He's been consistently class for years, top professional. Of course, Silva is on another level though :p
That sounds like a lot of effort and time for most people. Well done on the KDB/Gullit hopefully made it worthwhile. I can't be bothered doing any SBCs any more but think I'll load up Fifa now and have a go at weekend league.
Haven't played since last weekend but I've done almost every WL (only full 30 games once) for the past 3 months plus games a few objectives. It's the only reason I wont be buying Fifa 21. FUT is the best game mode but the investment in time is too great... it's why I didn't buy 18 or 19.
That's what I've been using. Had both CM on balanced for most of the year but eventually went more defensive to protect against counter attacks. One stay back (currently Witsel) and edge of box for crosses works well.
