POTM August is coming in hot! Let’s prepare…

SBC Release Date: Friday 28th September

In order to prepare for the SBC, we need to know what possible requirements could be. To do this, I’ve got the requirements for previous POTM August players, so we can see what we can expect during the beginning of the games life cycle.

    So let’s break these possible routes down into types of players to invest in…

    We will need some high rated EPL Players here, to make up the rating. On top of that, they need to be in good positions too. We don’t know what formation will be picked, so it’s always best to base it on the 4-4-2 formation, as it covers all positions (every position can be changed by 1, up or down the field if needed)

    The cheapest players in the EPL are as follows (you can pick them up cheaper than these prices!)

    81 Rated

    82 Rated

    83 Rated

    84 Rated

    85 Rated

    86 Rated

    Next up, we want some Tottenham players…

    Some of your cheaper choices that will rise include

    • Rose
    • Wanyama
    • Davies
    • Lamela
    • Dier
    • Winks
    • Llorente
    • Vorm
    • Janssen

    If you’re willing to risk a larger loss with the potential of a bigger reward then pick up

    • Sissoko
    • Aurier
    • Dele Alli
    • Alderweireld

    The biggest risk for reward card is as follows

    • Lucas

    This is due to being the POTM himself, and so he covers most bases but will already be invested in heavily

    Next, I’d be picking up some Brazil players with good ratings. Here are the cheapest available in a few ratings

    81 Rated

    82 Rated

    83 Rated

    84 Rated

    85 Rated

    86 Rated

    Finally, I’d pick up some of the cheapest gold players from PSG, Fulham and Man United, but I wouldn’t recommend going overboard when investing in them.

    Here are my investments, I recommend following these and potentially trying a few different routes too:

    I picked up a few Oscar, Jardel and Felipe cards, along with some 82 Rated EPL Players. I picked up a few Fabregas cards, being a good rating, cheap and outfield. I chose to get Bernardo Silva cards too for the same reason. I then picked up a ton of the cheapest gold Tottenham players that I could get. Finally, I picked up a ton of different Brazilian players for discard value. Finally I’ve bought myself a single Lucas card.

    It came to my attention that POTM is also now available for the Bundesliga. The two top players for this month are Muller and Duda. For the simple reason that very few people know about Bundesliga POTM, I’ve only made 1 investment.

    This investment is Frank Ribery, the cheapest 85 rated player by a significant amount.
