    Marcelo - 94 - TOTY
    5.0
    TOTY MARCELO
    By Jonathon1968, 17-02-2019

    So, i noticed that there weren't any reviews on this card and here i am, the first reviewer and a happy one i must say. So i was lucky enough to pack this guy untradable and after getting over the initial ecstasy i decided to pair him alongside Umtiti, Varane and 2nd IF Lala at the back with a midfield link to Fabinho. I put him on mixed attack and made Fabinho stay back to cover when he's out of position (although he rarely is). And i can happily say that after 106 games with him, HE IS INSANE. There is literally nothing he cant do. He's fast enough to bomb up in attack and still make it back to defend and his 99 stamina makes that easy. He's great at corners, IMMENSE at long shots, and really good at other things like tackling, passing etc. He's also very good at long balls, because i just do lob through balls to IF Rashford and they're all perfect. Only fault, and it is minor, is that he's small. 1 mil is expensive, but worth it.

    So much fun!

    (Excuse me for my English)I always liked Marcelo in FIFA, and when he got 5star skills this year it was only getting better!I think he's not solid enough for the LB position.. his defending is too low and combined with his low workrate, it was a no from me.But I always loved Marcelo's attacking stats, so when he got this RM FutBirthday card I needed him so bad.I didn't had the patience to wait fo...

    Reliable and Worth it!

    After packing Bale, Lukaku and IF Reus in my rewards (yes, I'm flexing), I decided to do some major upgrades to my squad. CB pairing was easy. Ramos and Varane, but I wasn't sure who to use on the left; Alba or MarceloI read a couple of reviews saying Marcelo is more dependable going forward, but a risk at the back.

    Amazing Central Midfielder

    He's the only TOTY I've ever packed, and I was originally a bit unsure of what to do as I'm using a BPL squad and he was untradeable. I also didn't want to waste such a good card at fullback so I did some rather convoluted positioning changes to get him as the RDM in my Premier league 4-2-2-2. Originally I used (CAM positioned)Fabinho at CB, moved (CDM)Rashford up to CAM, and put Marcelo at RDM, but I've since added Flash...
