Verratti - yeah mate, think he's great. Started with him on the other club with 89 Thiago and thought they were both quality.
Florenzi - do prefer him over Peres and any other RB in Serie A. He was actually one of our first red cards, but have pretty much always been on the bench for the WL (for the kid), as a sub. With his stats & height he can easily play as a CDM, or even CM.

Cavani ... unfortunately not too many funds available on that 2nd acc. However, Salah is a hefty price tag and not done too much for it. May be some changes still on that side. But, must say that Nainggolan is simply ridiculous, so will need to factor that in.

I really liked naingollan but he was sacrificed to accommodate verratti.  Would like to get him back in at some point if possible.

What if you swap Verratti & Marchisio, then use Nainggolan on the right?

Put Salah on Cut inside you will notice the difference

Yeah - both wingers are set to do that. Maybe I just have a psychological problem with his 72 long shots :D.

Then verratti would have one less chem link.   Anyway, sadly I sold him last night in team reshuffling, I may get him back at some point but I also know that once they're gone they rarely come back.

I'm just awaiting a motm release to pick up Messi then will get naingollan and possibly banega to link with Messi.

Funnily enough, have sold mine too! :D Also did a reshuffle.

For reference, he's on 8 chem regardless if he has 2/4 or 3/4 links.

New team is now this:


Looked at SIF Firmino's stats, compared to Bergkamp - very similar, bar shooting. Would hope that he'd get a TOTS card.

Thanks mate. Early days still (only 4 games) but won all of them so looking good.

I have been a fan of both NIF's (pre-upgrade) and on this account, when I was still pack only, the 82 Firmino had 133 in 222 games - literally carried the team in WL.

Kiwi, I have no doubt that Firmino, Coutinho and Mane will get TOTS cards. Mane in the starting XI and other 2 benching. Possibility of being in the community TOTS too if not EPL

@Simmo ... from your mouth mate ... ;D

But, Community TOTS - that's only for those that have not yet got previous IF's. So, it's all about TOTS. Stats look goods (whoscored) bar than run of 6-odd games where he struggled a bit. Just need him to keep going in the last games.

So ... in Seasons, stupid not to use fitness teams. One thing it helps with, is familiarisation with the formation.

First team is this:

... with IG switching to Bale & Suarez as strikers, Firmino as the CAM and Coutinho - Casemiro - Modric as the CM's.

Firmino & Coutinho have not fired properly as yet - they have 16 & 9 goals respectively, in 33 games. What I will say is that with the positional changes, it feels great having Firmino behind the 2 strikers - feeds plently to Bale. Coutinho also feels way better in a CM slot - almost like there's too much pressure on him playing a winger role - which he's not really (IMO at least).

The fitness team - pretty much the majority are untradeables, or packed & not sold off previously.


The star of this team is once again, Lemar. That IF is simply sublime. Was thumping teams with this team too - 6/7/8 goals, easily. Again, opposition is trash, but still need to score. Lemar is scoring plenty from long range - FK's, power and finesse. He really is a great card to use. I also like the fact that the majority of opposition would not know who he is. ;D .

Here is my latest line up.



I think I'm going to try IF koulibaly at cb as played against him at weekend and he was insanely strong.  Perrotti was obviously brought in to link Messi, had initially thought if banega but saw perroti at cm on market and thought I'd try it as a cheap option.  He's been excellent weighing in with some important goals. 

Wonder if part of reason it plays well is due to the large presence of NIFs  ???

2 bronzes on the bench isn't really bronze benching now is it  :P

Funny thing is when I see an 89 rated team and the rating shows up as 81/82 it annoys me haha, bronze benching noobs  ;D

Gonna give 4-2-3-1 a go as a last resort

Gonna go out in style



Feel like any formation with LM/RM those players are wasted like Hazard & OTW Mane so gonna use those as super subs in 4-2-3-1

Gone back to 4-3-3 (4) and been using this all week, well did have Lucas at RW until today.Suarez is super sub




Loving Cavani think he's the best all round ST i've used this year. Anyone used any of the Ligue 1 IF's really don't want to invest too much with most of the players i want more than likely getting a TOTS.Just don't think it will be competitive in WL without the upgrades.

Other than OTW Depay the likes of

Di Marķa, Cavani, Verratti & Tolisso looking as locks for TOTS was looking on the dark side for the ligue 1 lounge doesn't seem to be one  ???
