Sócrates Vieira de Oliveira - 92 - Icon
By NickandJohnny, 14-03-2019

After many long hours of trading, weekend league and saving up coins from div rivals, I decided to use my hard earned coins on his SBC. At first I was terrified he would not meet my expectations, but he exceeded them by far. His SBC is very expensive, but IMO he is worth it. In hindsight I would gladly pay around 3 mill for this guy. Sócrates is a complete game changer. He will win you games and makes great runs in behind the defense. VVD and Sanchez have finally met their maker ;-) He´s simply the complete package. At first I decided to try him out as a striker in a 4-1-2-1-2 formation. I was not disappointed. He scores goals with ease, but I would advise you to use him as a CAM of CF to best utilize his passing abilities. Don´t get me wrong; you can definitely play him as a striker, but as a CAM he´s just on another level. It´s like using some sort of cheat code. I now know why he was called the doctor. This guy will for sure solve your goal scoring problems. When you get through on goal, there´s simply no stopping him. His height, strength, agility and ball control makes sure that he´s not getting shrugged of by defenders. Even though his balance is a bit low, it was never a problem for me. For me he was like a hybrid between CR7 and TOTY De Bruyne. His finishing is exceptional, but what surprised me the most was his passing. It´s just on another level. He´s pulling all the strings and completely dominates the midfield and creates havoc for my opponents. He always manage to pass the ball in the right I would advise you to slap a deadeye on this guy to turn him into an absolute monster. Boost all his shooting stats up to 99 (except volleys and penalties) with 99 ball control, max composure and 5* weak foot means he will score you goals for fun. 96 curve does certainly also help if you decide to bend it in the corner. If Courtois or De Gea somehow manage to stop a shot from distance, you will most likely score on the following corner. Hope this review was helpful.

The Doctor

So after seeing some good things about this card on twitter I decided to try his loan card and what can I say, this man is a machine. I changed my formation just because of him to 4231 and I don't regret it. I play him as a CAM behind Ibra and he is fantastic. His shooting is amazing with both feet due to the 5* WF, his passing is always on point, he is tall and wins headers, a fantastic dribbler and has 95 stamina s...

Perfect Cam

Hello everybody! And welcome to another player review!! We haven't done another review since CR7, but man, this guy deserves it.He is so fucking good, we previously tried his 89 version and man, we fell in love with him. We knew we would do his prime sbc as soon as it came out and when we saw the optimus prime, We literally got a boner. As soon as the sbc dropped we did it (and became poor, but doesn't mat...

The Philosopher

Socrates is a Greek Brazilian god amongst mere mortals. He is everything Pogba aspires to become. The only thing EA could do to "balance" this card was give it 4 star skill moves and mediocre jumping; otherwise, he would be unstoppable. With an engine chem style, Socrates will majestically glide past defenders and ruin their whole careers with only a few swift movements. He's a huge, physical presence who can dribble...
