Is my Cruyff broken?

4 games zero goals or assists 😕
Been winning games and he does help with build up play but terrible shot it just gets blocked or floats wide. I find he sits to close to the CB/CDM and as he is fast he gets marked by the CB/CDM so I can't get a shot off.

    Nah he’s fine. Best way to use him is behind the striker in a 4-2-3-1 narrow formation, drop back 1 depth and have him tracking back. Well that’s what the last person I faced using him did🙈. Why spend all that coin on a player like Cruyff and do this to him?

    Are we talking the 94 version?

    If so, he didn't really WOW me either. 93 Bergkamp did a much better job in the same position for me (perhaps the added strength helped).

    Still want to do PIM Cruyff SBC though when it arrives. I think the signifcant increase in balance will really make Cruyff 95 stand out.

    I don't like 4231 I play 41212 (2) and he is my CAM. I am going to give him a go striker and put Mertens CAM.

    Yes 94 version. I find his shooting really poor I can never hit the target with him it’s strange.

    Yeah it's unfortunate I had the same issue. Felt like his shooting was lacking power despite the 84 power.

    Exactly that I even have marksman on him and feels the same as when I had engine on him.

    Mertens has 10 assists at striker in 5 games lol CR7 is my goalscorer. I have never had problems with my CAM getting goals or assists before.

    Be patient. Don’t focus too much on him. Try to work your game around other players and he will eventually shine. Give him time !

    I honestly don't focus on anyone I let my game flow and take my chances when I see openings but he doesn't take the chances I give him.

    I know what you mean but sometimes players for me will go a couple of games where they do nothing but then it just clicks. You could be right though and hes just not for you...

    I’m bang average at the game and Cruyff made me feel like I was untouchable. Baby card on loan. 10 games. 10 goals 5 assists. Still to this day pray for his sbc card. I thought he was smooth and devastating.

    Since playing him striker
    1st game he got a assist and the guy quit on the 2nd minute.
    2nd he scored the guy quit on the 26th min.

    Maybe I need him striker i will give him a few games.

    Selling him 8 games 1 goal 2 assists is one of the worst records I have had for an attacking player 😂

    He scored pretty much a goal a gam for me. St with hunter, amazing finishing with either foot, best I’ve used

    Play him striker in a two striker formation and he is one of if not the best striker on the game.

    Don’t need good passing at striker and I have never had problems with passing when using him anyway.

    There may be no better CAM in the game. In a 4-1-2-1-2 he has 95 goals across 73 games in WL/Division 2 in DR. Light years above TOTY KDB in that roll for me.

    Learn 5* skills.

    Particularly the rabona fake stop. Then once you’ve stopped near the box, one la croqueta into space and timed finesse near post worked a treat for me.

    He had 400 goals in 410 odd games and 200+ assists at cam, behind prime Raul who was over a goal a game ratio.

    Also, if you’re in the box or central use the low driven shots.

    Personally i hate seeing hunter, Shadow on cards with a base of 90+ pace.

    Get him scoring boysie! He’s quality, just seems though some players start of really poorly for certain people. Happened to me with prime linekar. Was terrible for about 12 games, then went on to be the most clinical finisher I’ve had. Cruyff will have that one amazing game and that’s it, it’s like you unlock them so to speak.

    I meant to put finesse far post 😂 but near post finesse works well when running towards the keeper.

    Also, go for hunter chem. I know it sounds stupid, but his dribbling and passing is already good enough, just making him that tad bit faster and increasing the shot power made the world of difference for me.

    Also, cam is his best position imo. I felt his strength let him down at striker.

    Same with CR7. Hunter seems to work best. Not sure why putting an attacking chem style on an attacker funny though, but each to their own.
