    There’s a pretty widespread theory that icons have “hidden stats” and play better than what their stats list.

    I will say I definitely have felt this way at times with my Vieira.
    Best example was getting the ball around my box, playing a RB + A ball to my RS then laying it off to Vieira a little before center circle. He then dribbled past the 2 midfielders, hesitated then took off and outran the LCB and LB and roofed it.

    He’s got Powerhouse chem style so no pace boost and has 83 pace so it made no sense

    I could see that. His stats are still insane for a championship player. I bought him to give it a go. He's as good as 90+ Alexis

    ChileanNole has used him as a sub and I believe loves him.

    He looks amazing. I personally was hoping for him as a LB as he’d look great at LB

    I absolutely love him. So much so that is making me regret not going after fut birthday Rooney so I could build a squad around him. Use him a lot as a sub but usually at LB. He’s REALLY good, highly recommend. I see a lot of ppl using him in weekend league.

    I play a 352 and so far I'm starting him at left midfielder and moving him to left defensive midfielder at about 60 minutes so i can move Sterling to LM and being in Kaka at CAM

    I'm digging it so far

    I may have an inferior FUT team, but I welcome all challengers if anyone wants to play a friendly.

    I’m always down for friendlies. I’ve played a shit ton of WL so not as down o online matches as before. I’ll make sure to pause before we start to switch formations, and bring in Lozano if I’m down.

    Last night played 3 SB games on pro with a League Two squad and got my 11 goals for 64 TOTS Akinfenwa.

    Threw him into EFL SBC with mostly 82s and got Sessegnon

    I had a like 78 rated squad and figured I'd try what Reddit said. If you're winning, score OG or let them score to send to ET and get more, then if up but not to 11, do the same because pens counted.

    I was up 4-0, start letting them get goals, get a 5th and then it's getting late so I let them get a few more. Then they intercepted a pass and quickly countered to go up 6-5 at 90+2. I was quite angry. Worst squad left was 81 so figured hey lets update and get 1 lower squad maybe. 88, 89, 90, 90. :killme:

    Playing against those rated squads with a League Two squad was awful

    If you can, I’d recommend going from Baumann to Fahrmann. He’s got the saves with legs trait so I see him over any other Bundesliga GK, over Neuer and any IFs

    Whoa. He looks awesome. That's nice.

    I got Fernando (Sad trombone) but hey I turned my free 84 Lopez into a free 87 Fernando that'll make it easier with the other ones likely having higher requirements.

    Damn. Sorry to hear. I fully expected Pope and told roonskie and ChileanNole that's who we were all getting (and still expecting it on Tuesday).

    When the Belgium flag popped up I about shit my pants thinking KDB (didn’t consider Lukaku) then saw CB and started trying to think. Was very happy. They also did well.

    Praying that on Tuesday I don't get Pope or Vertoghen. Sterling wouldn't be ideal since I have his PTG at CAM untradeable but I'd take it for sure.

    Walker or Aguero would be the dream

    I sold off Bday Azpilicueta, IF Zuber, TIF Ginter, SIF De Ligt, a NIF Oblak I pulled and a number of 82-84 guys I was sitting on for guarantee SBCs and am sitting nicely to get TOTS Walker and TOTS De Ligt (whenever it's released). Hoping Walker drops more so I could afford to upgrade Kimmich from TOTGS to TOTS and getting him Tuesday would free up a large sum of coins for something different

    So does everyone else.

    Except me for Salah. I already have his POTY Untradeable so getting his TOTS would be a huge kick in the nuts.

    I give EA a lot of shit but they have handled TOTS very well imo.

    5 TOTS as a weekly objective reward, ROW at least the first week wasn’t terrible at 83 overall with 80 chem. If they keep that the whole way, the later ones will be a great deal.

    EPL was very manageable and with that being the most popular league I wouldn’t expect the other leagues to be more expensive than this.

    I really want TOTS Firmino. His PTG has started for me and is a perfect CAM to link up w POTY Salah and Ronaldo. I want him most this Tuesday. And since I have POTY Salah I don’t want him. Second most is Walker or De Gea. If I don’t get Firmino, I’ll buy him. Have enough to do it now but waiting for Tuesday and some price drops too.

    After that I would love TOTS Kimmich and either a La Liga or BL CM to upgrade either a TOTGS Casemiro or IF Vidal. A TOTS Vidal and I pass out.
