Van Basten is on my list too, i'm building a 433, rijkaard, gullit and bergkamp in midfield, behind Robben, V Basten and Overmars.

Will there be more (other) icon releases? V Aerle  ;), Koeman, Stam, Bronkhorst would make me very happy
In need of a new goal!!

Thanks Glad.

Beuk - don't think so. Past 2 years they haven't released additional legends after the initial set. Would be great if we could get some more - those you mentioned and others of course.

As Glad has said previously - it opens up to use unique players & of course be able to build more unique hybrids.

so I dropped my Bundesliga team. In the end I found them a bit boring since the only improvements are the usual suspects (Vidal, Boateng, etc.,). Back to my love for the Calcio A. In fact that is teh place where MvB should be anyway



Nice detail: trainer Roberto Donnadonni played together with MvB if I am not mistaken. Otherwise I have to change Ancelotti to Serie A.

It all started with the Scream card of Perisic. What a nice position change! And what a card it is! 5 start weak foot, 4 star skills combined with H/M work rates and some high stats in the right place: 85 shot power, 80 finishing, 80 short passing, 88 stamina, 92 long shots, etc. The first two games he was MIA, think i had to get adjusted to him. Last games he is.....outstanding.

Then I build from there. IF Ghoulan is also an amazing card. Strong defend stats but moreover, 84 crossing and 88 shot power is making this a back that brings something extra in attack. I play with an instruction on him that he attacks too. Really a threat coming down the line. His 95 stamina makes him a 90 minute work horse. Koulibaly and De Vrij are an interesting pair. Pretty solid so far. The RB I had in my club, need to think on this.

As for the midfield, still under construction. I bought IF torreira to try out and so far it is a hidden gem. 89 short passing and 86 long passing combined with 85 standing tackle with 85 stamina makes him a passing/defending hero on the midfield. Since IF Ghoulam is set on attacking play style I let this guys stay behind during attack.

No De Rossi = no party  ;D, already scored my first screamer with him in his 2nd match. Quality quality quality.

Lulic is a revelation. Liked him as a LB but as a Cm he is so all rounded and very overlooked.

Attack: I like the pairing of strong and fast striker. Tried Eder but was not a success. Defrel is dirty but does the job. Aiming for a ICON like Crespo or Hernandez over there. Otherwise I go for Mertens (SIF)

Serie A is great this year (again) so many options, so many good players.

Nice one Glad.

Love the Ghoulam card as well. I've used him as a LCB in a 352 team plenty too given his height. Albeit he's not the strongest nor his marking/interceptions being the best, that 86 sprint speed certainly helps ;D

The only perfect LB is Roberto Carlos .

Inzaghi or Crespo or Owen or Herhandez as partner for MvB?

Nice goals Glad.

As a partner for MvB, I'd look at a smaller, nimbler pacey guy - would be Hernandez/Owen ... possibly Hernandez with his skills makes him the preferred choice.

Ok ... so decided not to wait any longer, sell off a few players (a lot more than that) ... and get this man:


And then, when I was supposed to be working, I decided I needed the afternoon off ;D.

After a loss first up - Ronaldinho still got a hat trick - won the next 4. The team was pretty horrible bar a few players - Ronaldinho (of course), Neymar & probably Douglas Costa - he's been my favourite LM (for 352) so far. The defence was average and Neto in goals was simply horrid.

Still, cantered to the title - all due to this man:


Now, I will say that I thought I wasn't trying to focus on him ... but 0 assists in 5 games - as the CAM - doesn't hold up well in my defence ;D.

Honestly, I am stunned by the impact of this card. In the first game - still getting to grips with him - it's almost as if he was not allowed to lose the ball! He holds it up incredibly well too.

Love this card!

looks like a beatsly card Kiwi. Love those ICONS.

My MvB has played 100 games (in fact yesterday I hit that land mark), 93 goals and 39 assists. Apart from great stats it is just so much fun to play with them.

Agreed Glad - some of them - for their uniqueness and real-life likeness - are just amazing to use.

Played some more yesterday. Only getting better:

I've managed to get Bergkamp to 51 goals and 48 assist in his 80 games so far. He is just so good!

decided to sell off some ICONS and rebuild to this:



Saved coins for Rijkaard prem ICON (current fund 1M). Hopefully enough. If not no big deal I settle for a lower version. Owen might be sold and replaced by IF Kluivert, or IF Depay or Robben.

Doubting if I wil do teh SBC for 92 rated Schmeichel, there are some bad reviews out there but to be fair they were all from for the update. Otherwise I wait for the Russian guy....especially if he would wear that cap in-game  ;D
