I got mine from untradeable SBC and i was happy with him because i have full BPL team and he fitted into squad perfectly. I replaced IF Reid with TOTS Vertonghen, but honestly, i think that was a mistake.

Vertonghen seems very slow, even when i put Catalyst chem style on him. I just don't feel safe when he's playing in first 11. Sometimes he goes nuts and wins every god damn tackle, but more oftenly he barely wins a tackle and he gets very poor match rating at the end.

What are your thoughts about him or advices what to do about him?

    Man I was hesitant to use him to because of his pace and work rates, however I put Shadow on him and he has been immense. Great passer, and even with his work rates he doesn't get caught out and intercepts nearly everything

    Try him for a few games with Shadow, and if he is still **** then just swap him out

    Been solid for me though since I got him

    He's been solid but not extraordinary.

    I hated him. Pulled from untradeable SBC and he is always out of position. Brought Koscielny back into my squad and its a huge improvement.

    A cb with his work rates needs a lot of pace. I thought he was decent most of the time but when anyone gets past him he's never catching up. He'd be excellent with the right workmates.

    Didn't like him at all, Keane is much better. I've pullled him 3 times from the sbc and just put him back into it. one of the worst TOTS CB i've used.

    He is a damn good defender but his H/H workrates will leave you exposed

    He's H/M which is much worse than H/H.

    Basically if you rely on AI auto defending then don't use him, if you can defend manually then he is first class.

    Played two games w him and he was amazing but I sold him because I can't have two left footed CBs (Ogbonna)
