    Prime Best was great but being honest I would go with the first team. Marcelo is grea fun but he is definitely a luxury and make sure you use him for corners he’s really really accurate.

    Sonny I thought you knew how to keep players away from that danger area easily :confused:

    Even with a decent team its quite tiresome playing the insane cards. Feel there are just too many special cards.

    I mean it's called Ultimate Team for a reason. Be pretty **** if we could only use Forrest Green players. :p

    It is and there is an element of hypocrisy in my post as I spent a few quid, however it seems to be just more and more insane every year with endless cards and money sinks!

    Its still good fun, I have 500 hours played, but may give it a miss next time. :)

    Haha I'm in the same boat to be honest man. I do get what you mean. I didn't bother with Fifa 2018, played a tiny bit then quit after a month. Like everyone here though I love playing football games, so it's a rock and a hard place situation. I do enjoy Fifa, it's just that the arms on my chair don't. :p

    The whole business model is **** for consumers but I know it won't change.

    Just had a really close match where I had to come back from 2-0 down, after 2 penalties which were perfectly clean tackles. His POTM hazard just jumped on the floor like in real life (only player who dives more is Neymar). I ended up losing in the last minute. My opponent messaged me saying GG and he didn't think they were pens either, which was a nice change from the normal stuff you receive. :)

    played lots of Sol Campbells recently and he seems to move in slow motion? Really clumsy and unagile

    Bit frustrating that I can barely play at weekends and that means I just can't generate enough coins to upgrade / play around with teams. I don't think I can afford a similar quality team to my Serie A team in any other league which is a bit annoying so just sort of grinding away. Contemplating a hybrid using Griezmann and Suarez up top <somehow> but can't seem to do it without a formation change / sub at the start which I don't want to do

    the only other defenders which are as good and cheap are bundesliga or a french team with the likes of kimpembe, kondogbia, etc. serie a defensively is so good in terms of cheap quality. scream caceres is unreal.

    So, new team:

    [​IMG]

    4231 - Fernandinho or Fabinho will go to CB, Marcelo to CDM, and Militao to left back, I don't use them to attack much and he seems fast enough and decent defensively. Also allows Casillas to be tried. I do have better RB's in the club but chem is a slight issue.

    I used untradeables mostly for VVD, and got about 150k back from the packs, so he cost around 180k in total, which I thought was decent, especially if he goes up to 91 next month.

    5-2 so far, playing pretty well and trying not to rage. Coming up against 88/89 rated teams isn't helping either; came up against TOTY Mbappe who's just a train that doesn't stop. Beat him comfortably 3-1 with my own NIF Mbappe doing the job, like.

    Gold 1 last week and now I'm struggling to get to gold 3. My players can just not get into any space and 99% of goals conceded have been finesse shots ....yawn.

    Sigh, got really excited at the idea of the 87-rated Vrsalkjo, didn't realise you need _12_ wins in Online Singles :/

    Scored a free kick in one game and then two the next =) Marco alonso has played 289 games and only scored 15 so doesn't score many=)
    I'm on my best run of 8 wins in 12. I lost my first 3 games off the weekend league as well.
    Usuallt I get silver 1 with a few games left

    ^Nice little run there mate. Push for gold 3 ;)

    I've solved one of my biggest mistakes. I always played my 3 CAMS with stay forward instructions but leaving them on balanced pressures the other team more and creates more space when attacked on the counter as well.

    Currently half time in a match vs a full icon squad. I'm deservedly winning 2-0. Feels like the game is trying to let him back into it.. I'm having to make every tackle 2-3 times and I've hit the post/bar twice since going 2 ahead (with green timed bull shots).

    Beat him 3-1. Horrific experience.
