FUT Birthday Rooney Appreciation

Ok ... going to create this one. Would not have thought I would actually do it, but after 20 goals in 12 games (first one being a mess and quick quit), I thought I'd make this.

Given he costs 45k and a bit of effort, he's a great bargain! And yeah, as with these high-rated SBC's, can always be thrown into a latter SBC.

Using him as a CAM in 352, all games bar 2 were played in D1. He's performed incredibly well and helped with a 7-2-0 season and the title.

My take on him ...
• Pace - good, no issues there.
• Shooting - best long shot taker in the game for me. And, I love to take long shots!
• Passing - what you'd expect with those stats
• Dribbling - obviously he's a bit stocky so it's not as smooth as others. It's enough though
• Physical - a great attribute of his playing at CAM - outmuscled many and as someone else mentioned, his heading has been surprisingly good.

    im playing him at striker in a 4222 with ptg firmino at CAM and hes got 16 goals in 12 games so far, i love him

    theres the odd game where he doesnt feel involved so i switch him and firmino and BANG hes back in the game, the most fun striker ive used this fifa tbh

    some of those goals you scored are exactly the type im scoring with him, awesome

    Completed him yesterday and threw him up top with Larsson, scores 4 on his debut :joy: seems to fit my play style perfectly as his link up play is brilliant. Mahrez still pulls the strings at cam (can’t reccomend highly enough) but front 3 seems very capable now, looking forward to WL

    RCM in a 41212 narrow - he’s been brilliant so far. And the good part is I haven’t even been trying to get him involved as I’m not a fan boy.

    Allowed me to move POTM Kane up to striker too, so win win really.

    I’ve got two paddy’s cards, need another 2, which I’m doubtful that I’ll get tbh.

    I played against RVP and Rooney last night and I’ve got to say RVP was definitely the more dangerous of the two

    Always struggle finding a decent RCM but Rooney has been a beast so far

    I need to do luck of the Irish and 9 online wins. I got 3 wins out of 4 last night but doubtful I’ll get back on in time to do the rest

    @VanBasten12 Think he could partner Prime Crespo well as a striker?

    I am having a hard time to create an Hybrid squad to use Rooney as a CAM and have him with full chem.

    @FrankFrank ... only used him at CAM, but I do think he has the goods to play at ST. Partnering with the likes of Crespo would be needed, IMO.

    Positon will depend on your play style.

    He's not my type of striker, but given his long shot ability, playing him at CM is too far back for me. Has to be CAM for me.

    I don't use formations that use a CF. But, I have no doubt that he'll be good in that position.

    Find him better than kaka being honest. Probably play him cam behind 87 son or sbc cristiano and prime dinho.

    He’s been amazing for me. 5 games, 5 goals, 5 assists playing CAM in a 4-3-3 - SPOTM Kane is struggling up top with wingers though so I may convert him back into a ST.
