Thursday’s Squad Thread – Week 35
While this site is dedicated to trading and making coins, the whole point of doing so is to build squads we enjoy playing with. I’m curious, who are you guys using? What formations are you running? Any recent breakthroughs with your gameplay? Link your teams in the comments below.
Chief’s Last Squad
I was thinking of making Ferdinand but when I look at stats I like the stats from TOTS Ramos and Chiellini better.
What is your view on Icons and TOTS players? Who are best? Does Icons have traits etc that TOTS players doesn’t have?
I still play with 4 icons. Bergkamp, Rijkard, Overmars and Zanetti. Sold Hernandez and replaced him with TOTS Firminio instead.
The biggest thing I like about icons is that they make it easier to build hybrid squads. I haven’t used TOTS Ramos, but I have used prime Ferdinand and he was a freak for me.
But do Icons have other advantages not showing up on the stas page?
Some people claim that they do, but that is all speculation. There is no definitive proof that they do or don’t.
I was thinking of buying fut birthday florenzi and playing him at cm alongside ptg milinovic savic. Is he worth the coins, and how do you think he would fair in that position?
I used FUT Birthday Florenzi but stuck him at RB for my in-game formation. He was awesome there. From everything I’ve heard, he is awesome at CM as well.
Hi Chief – think I’ve found a good Hybrid to work towards upgrading my current squad. If my Bundesliga TOTs base card investments come in, and I sell the replaced players, and Neymar drops in price after the POTY SBC, I will be able to afford this.

Future squad: https://www.futbin.com/18/squad/5248358
Do you think it is an upgrade? I play 4231 in game and switch to 4222 or 352 if chasing.
May have to have Smalling in place of Rio for a while if money is tight as he’ll be the last player I buy
I’d say your defense is improved, your midfield is about the same, and your attack is about the same.
Here’s the team that I want to end up with: https://www.futbin.com/18/squad/5240080
When do you think it’s a good time to buy 92 IF Bale? Today before rewards or tomorrow/weekend during lighting rounds?
I’d try to snipe Sunday during lightning rounds – I think he will go down in demand/price when Bundesliga drops and people start building their squads around their Bundes TOTS untradeables rather than La Liga.
Thanks, I appreciate the response! Do you think Alba for around 300k is a worthy replacement for Marcelo to save 450k?
Short answer: yes.
