    Default Antoine Griezmann or Marko Marin?

    Start of third season, I've had offers accepted for both these players at around the same price (about 22 mil). I only need one of them for the left wing. Marin is asking for more money and has slightly better stats, although I've heard a few people saying Griezmann is brilliant. Has anyone had experience with either of these players and could swing me either way?

    I had Griezmann at Arsenal three seasons in. Wouldn't have swapped him for anybody. World class.

    Griezmann. I bought Griezmann and Marco Reus in my first year and have them playing as str. They are immense after 4 seasons.

    I bought Marin but only coz I didn't have enough for Griezman, I would definitely go for Griezman but either would be a world class performer I reckon.

    I wondered if Antoine Griezmann was worth 20 million and by the time I decided to get him Man City swooped in offered a contract I couldn't come near matching.

    Well don't clutter up threads with poor spelling and grammar and I'll think about it. Plus, a mod has replied here and has no issue with it, so stop being an ass.

    Griezmann for me as well. I got him for a bargain 7.5m and he was simply brilliant.

    Griezman is at Chelsea in my game. He is currently 33 and is still winning awards the odd month and has been contender for player of the year last 5 or 6 years. I am a bit devastated I never bought him early on.

    I've bought Griezmann after all the unanimous support. He hasn't had the best start, but after a short injury and a quiet word telling him he needs to buck it up, he's got two goals on the bounce and an assist. He's got an awful habit of cutting in from the wing and shooting wildly over. I'm tying to cut that out. I'll update after his first full season, as I feel you all scouted him on my behalf

    Are you playing him left wing? I retrained him CM and he was soo good. Goals, assists. Shyed a challenge though.

    Yeah left wing with a duty of support. I initially had him with an attacking duty, but that's when he was taking wild shots, and I'm playing a young Jack Robinson at left back, so he needs support.

    I wouldn't want to retrain him as a CM as I've got a couple of world class players there anyway, and I bought him as I really needed quality on the wing.

    After I posted earlier in this thread, I hunted him down in my current game. Was absolutely gutted to see he had obviously fallen out of favour at Real Sociedad (played 4 times in the 2nd season with no injuries) and was sold to Lyon for a paltry 4.1million Damn I missed out there!

    Griezmann is a more balanced player. Definitely go for him.

    And Falahk is right, these kind of question should be asked in the proper thread.

    Marin; he way more exciting Everyone gets Griezmann on this game!

    He got the response he needs. No need to Mod for the Mods.

    Anyway, Griezmann looks better for me, If I remember, Marin has a low determination stat. That annoys me quite a bit and wouldn't buy him on that basis anyway.

    Here's an update after Griezmann's first season with me and Marin's season with Werder Bremen. Griezmann had a fairly good season and contributed some very important assists late in the season. Looks like the choice was fully justified!

    THIS is him at his best:



    Was playing him as an AMR, cutting inside on his left foot. He was natural AMR from training and playing, but I've since moved him back to AML, and stopped the training so he has dropped down to accomplished.

    I bought Marin for my Liverpool team a year ago and he has been very poor for mw - so sell him and keep Griezman

    How can Griezman go to Athletic? I thought they could only buy Basque players...

    he is trained at a basque cantera, even if it would be somewhat controversial to sign him, since he aint basque, it should technicaly be possible for that reason

    anyway since someone for once moved this thread to the gptg it will probably get locked very soon....which is about time
