I have 2 silver FBs, both cost me 1k each. Just grinding the 15 x 1k match bonus and just got Walker for RB, saving for Clichy at LB next.
Although Im not sure how much pace matters atm, many defenders have reeled in Bent so far, including(most memorable) Rio Ferdinand with his sub 60 pace!
I know you played tons of FUT last year, how do you find this one and are you using 4222 again?. I started 4222 but every single game was a huge goal fest no matter what i did both FBs and CDMs just ran up front(i had lucas and mikel so should be fine with workrates although i didn't check), then tried 352 and the same again. Sold my team off to change formations but all the prices have shot up so im playing H2H (which seems miles better than FUT from what i've played of both so far).
