    I understand that it's because of the recent Belgian league TOTS and the teams you can create with Dendoncker, Mbodj, Tielemans etc

    But not so long ago he was going for basically discard price, will he ever get back to that point?

    When will the best time to buy TOTS cards be?

     

    There are players in the current TOTS that I want, will they continue to drop in price when a new League is released?

    I think Michael Carrick deserves a most consistent. 

     

    32 appearances in all competitions and he's had a fantastic season, one of Uniteds best players.

    BTW, players on your list that I've tried:

    Giovinco - I have the SBC. Weird player. Brilliant in the right hands, mostly a dribbling fiend. Long shots are crazy good. For me he is too weak for ST.

     

    IF Muriel - I tried his 81. Hard to like him, he is fast but stamina is a disaster and shooting is simply subpar. Dribbling felt a little weak (but I'm not qualified to rate dribbling)

     

    IF Gomez - Excellent but he is a CAM player. Good at everything. He fights for possession but not strong enough for ST spot.

     

    Ibarbo - I only had his 75 card which is far inferior. Save for the brute speed, he was a complete discard of a player. I'd expect his 81 card to be better, but nowhere near the quality of the other guys on this list.

     

     

    Other STs you may like:

     

    regular Higuain - this guy fits your ST description. With Hunter he is a beast and finishing is superb.

     

    85 Mandzukic - give him a speed chem, I would do Hawk or Hunter. He is faster than his numbers suggest, and few strikers personify a target man as well as he does. Finishing is superb, weak foot doesn't matter.

     

    85 Belotti - The all purpose striker. Beast with Hunter chem.

     I already use Higuain in one team and Lukaku in another, both are excellent strikers so I was looking for a sub who is the opposite of them, small pacey, nimble etc. 
    I think I'm going to try Doumbia, he's been fantastic in past FIFAs and with a Maestro card his starts in game look insane, good pace stats, shooting stats, dribbling stats, good stamina. 
    Thanks for all the suggestions Smile

    posted a message on I Need A Super Sub

    I'm currently looking for my super-sub for this year, last year I found having a really good IF on the bench could make a huge difference to difficult games and now I'd like to replicate it. 

     

    I have around 75k to my name at the moment, can easily grind for a little more though so I'd like to keep it under the 100k mark (PS4) 

     

    Here are my options:

     

    3* WF 3* Skills;

    FUT Birthday Agbonlahor 

    FUT Birthday Ibarbo

    IF Gray (a little on the expensive side)

    FUT Birthday Welliton

    SIF Martinez

    FUT Birthday Esswein

    FUT Birthday Bent

    SIF Gnabry

     

    3* WF 4* Skills;

    FUT Birthday Doumbia

     

    4* WF 3* Skills;

    IF Werner

    FUT Birthday Emenike

     

    4* WF 4* Skills;

    FUT Birthday Muriel

    IF Gomez

    IF Muriel

    IF Giovinco

     

    Or feel free to suggest anyone else. I play with big, target man type strikers so I'd like the Super sub to be someone fast and nimble. 

     

    Or shall I just wait and see what TOTS brings?

     

    Thanks in advance!

    Play someone better off chem? It's not like your CB needs the chem he's already got perfect chem.

    A bellerin would probably be better off chem then him. But I suppose you need that City link to KDB


    You could always get rid of KDB, Convert Lukaku down to CM
    and put IF Bains at LB. Tongue

     Haha, I think I'd rather keep Clichy in! He's not awful. Fingers crossed Man City sign some decent full backs in the summer. There was talk of a reunion between Pep and Dani Alves, he'd be okay off chem.
     Age is going to catch up to that man and i'm not sure as an aging footballer you want to dip your feet into the prem and get kicked haha.
     Possibly but City have 4 aging full backs as it is, at least Alves would bring some quality Tongue Their defence is in a dire situation, they need all the bolstering they can get

    He's not a "bad" LB in this game enough pace and the defense/physical is decent enough that the right chem style makes him perfectly reasonable to use.

     He's not awful but there are better ones and he's not just quite at the same calibre as the rest of the team.

    If only Man City had a good RB like Alex Sandro or Alba!

    Well I guess the positive is that it should result in lower prices for the original cards right?

     Hasn't really made a difference to someone like Dybala

    Work rates? Instructions? Stamina?

    David Luiz couldn't sit in a back line if his life depended on it,Nor could Ramos neither of those fuckers stay put. I don't ever park the bus but i'll switch to defensive but there are certain players that refuse to do anything remotely useful towards holding a lead.

     I always enter a match with 90+ stamina to ensure they make it through the game.
    I like to think I have the workrates balanced. Wingers have H/M, Striker has H/M, Wingbacks have H/M (but most wingbacks do) the CMs either have H/H or M/M and CB's have M/H apart from Bailly, but I've never seen him go forward anyway. 
    As I said before though, for the first 75 minutes of the game, I can hold my own, the midfielders don't all rush forward, the Wingbacks are cautious, everyone can control the ball just fine but as soon as it gets to the later stages of the game, everything changes. All of the CMs go forward, the wingbacks go forward, ball control gets sloppy and sluggish.. 
    Instructions are usually high pressure, team pressing or just standard

    I don't know if it's the same for any of you, but my teams always seem to fall apart, lose shape and come out of position in the last quarter of the game. 

     

    I've been in Div 3 for a while now and I have to say out of around 10 draws, 8 of them are games in which I've been winning (usually by 2 or more goals) and it always ALWAYS seems to happen because in the 75th minute my team fall apart and decide to become really attacking and leaky at the back. 

     

    I know you're probably thinking it's just my fault, but I swear to you it isn't. 

     

    I can hold my own the whole game, dominating possession, creating 10+ chances a game, getting 2-3 goals. But in the 75th+ minute everything changes. 
    My 3 midfielders will decided to all go forward at the slightest sign of an attack, my wing backs will have made some sort of run forward and when the opponent counter attacks (because they just abuse high pressure and eventually get the ball) I'm left with 2 CBs who will fumble around and get in each others way, players will take awful touches and become really sluggish. 

     

    I've even tried setting my team to park the bus to defend my lead but the same thing happens, everyone wants to go forward despite being 2-0 up. I've tried setting it to a 5 at the back formation and park the bus, my wing backs are under instructions to not go forward, one of my midfielders are told to stay back all the time, one is on balanced and one is allowed to go forward. 

     

    I've drawn at least 5 games where I was 2-0 up because of this. 

     

    There's no possible reason my teams should fall apart like they do, once or twice I'd have put this down to just being one of those games, but for it to happen so often, it's more than a coincidence. 

     

    I have no idea what to do and for the first time in Seasons this year I've been relegated today after 5 losses and a draw, all in games with 1 goal deficit. Usually being 1-0 up and the 75th minute curse strikes again.

    Haha yep - seems utterly meaningless to me.

     

    I was really excited about these upgrades and they look awful from what I've seen.

     

    One example - Immobile has gone up +1 overall but he's only improved by a total of 15 in-game stats overall - most of them are just +1 to some stats. Why even bother with an upgrade if it makes no difference?

     But his SIF Stats have gone up, raising the price which is good for me Smile w/ teeth
