Kaka unappreciation thread

I was so looking forward to using him, his stats look superb but he just doesn't live up to them. He has flashes of brilliance but most of the game seems to pass him by, dropping to CDM doesn't help. Also the quick sub suggestion every time the ball goes out of play in the second half is annoying.

I think he's going into the Crespo SBC, I've got Florenzi & Kaka doesn't even come close to him....... Sad state of affairs where Lozano is a far more effective super sub than 92 rated Kaka :neutral:

    He's already gone in the Gullit SBC. Saved me a 100k. Too bad though as he was one of my favorite players irl, but just couldn't get the best out of him and he didn't play as he used to be during his prime. He just looked like Kaka. Had great finishing though.

    It is gutting. On the plus side, I'm glad I took your Florenzi advice....... He's incredible

    Yeah, real shame. He was so good in his prime, really wanted a card like that.

    Glad he's working out for you! Going to buy him back as soon as I've finished Gullit and got the coins. Florenzi had such a presence in midfield, really miss him.

    He’s not as good as I wanted him to be, but he’s still staying in my team for the rest of the year.

    How are you trying to use him?

    I've got him CCAM in 4231, figured that would be the best way to protect his stamina and have plenty of options to unleash his passing range.

    Sadly, he just seems a bit lacklustre and wildly inconsistent. It's like his IGs are actually 10 less than what they say - Still good, but not elite like they appear to be.

    I guess I was trying to use him like Mahrez in my other team. They both have a quick striker & a bigger striker in front of them. I try to mix it up between holding up the ball then playing a forward through, a first time pass or a long shot/dribble if the space opens up. I thought they'd be similar players, smooth dribbling & good long shots...... Mahrez has twice as many goals & 3 times the assists from 10 games each.

    Try a more 1-2 based game with him.

    It hurts that I can’t recreate his bursting runs forward :cry:

    But I agree, 1-2 build up is the best way to use him.

    If only he have 70 stamina and 85 balance he will be my main CF. Too bad EA ruined him and pirlo. Eoe pirlo and kaka can outperfoem low tier icon in this game.

    He is ok. Definitely doesn't feel 92 rated tho.

    Beginning to really get a feel for him at ST in a 4411. Honestly find him best here leading the attack. He often drops back or holds up play very very well. But I also find him making runs in behind and or out wide to help my wingers. Normally my ST is pretty stagnant but Kaka is everywhere. Positining is superb, but most of all it's his passing for me.

    I definitely encourage you fellas give him a chance

    he's ok but won't get into my team even with engine his dribbling is a lie.

    He’s captain invisible in my team. The only time I notice him is when he’s too slow/tired to run anywhere.

    Bench he goes!

    He is really good. Trio of Dinho, Kaka and Gullit and he dosen't feel out of place at all.

    @yerwaltz used him quite well against me. I’ve got him, but not used him yet.

    I also had issues with him, doesn't seem to move smothly. He's very clunky. I used big guys like Suarez, CR7, Kane and none felt so sluggish.

    I would put it in an SBC, but I don't want to get another former Milan player untradeable.

    I play him up top. Had issues similar to others at cam where he dropped too deep. Really polarising for me at the mo. Averages a goal a game but frustrates the hell outta me at times. His passing can be so inconsistent but his finesse shots are some of the best I’ve seen with any player I’ve used this year. Every time I think about benching him he has a worldie so he stays a bit longer. I don’t dislike the card but I think he’ll be on the bench come tots. No regrets in doing him tho whatsoever.

    Only used him in a couple of SB games so far as CAM in 352 but man is he afraid of going forward!

    To be fair I've not amended CT so I'll try that but that aside he seems quite stecky and it doesn't take much power for his shots to really leave the ground!

    Definitely feeling underwhelmed so far
