So TOTS is here and I noticed we’re lacking a thread for reviews and trying out new players is a part of TOTS I always enjoy so if you have used any of the latest TOTS cards, please share your impressions :+1:

If you need a review on a card you’re looking to buy then post in here and I’m sure someone will do a quick write up on them :)

If we get a lot of reviews I’ll index them in this post for ease of access.

    Thiago feels great on the ball, he helps a lot to handle high pressure or low depth players and is a lot of fun. He also seems to have a quite good balance as he handles tackles well.

    Only down side is that he doesnt have that much energy left in the end of the game. Mostly bought him for Rodri but might even keep.

    He is a steal at 250 imo

    I was lucky enough to pack TOTS Ndombele (twice) and have tried him out in rivals/WL for a total of 12 games so far.

    Pros

    - Has good strength allied to high aggression so he wins the majority of midfield duels.
    - Absolutely rapid due to the 90 accelaration and covers large distances similar to how TOTY Kante feels to use.
    - 4* skills is another pro as like it or not a La Croqueta here and there can open up a drop back user.
    - Currently he’s going for 350k (ish) which is decent value for coins but I do expect him to drop if we get a guaranteed TOTS SBC tonight and also if he gets a re-release for Ligue 1 TOTS so should be even more of bargain.

    Cons

    - Finishing is an obvious weakness of the card though he did score two in the 12 games I’ve used him...one was a green timed power shot from outside the box and the other a weak foot non timed shot that hit the post and went in from near the penalty spot.
    - Despite being a decent height (5ft 11”) he doesn’t win many headers against taller midfielders like Gullit due to his poor jumping.

    Overall, I’d recommend him to anyone after a CDM/box to box midfielder but I’d pair him up with someone with better shooting like Gullit or TOTY Modric.

    Rodri - surprisingly good a very solid cdm for me his height and strength wins most areal duels. He has a powerful header from a corner and also out jumps most people too defend against them. He runs my defensive midfield staying in shape and sitting in his position. His passing out from the back is really sharp n neat. And most surprising has actually scored some worldies too so from distance he seems too have a decent shot too. So all in all a very decent solid cdm for me.

    Allan has been a little bulldozer for me, solid on and off the ball.

    Packed him and haven’t really enjoyed him to be honest. Still feels weak and unlike TOTY Kante he doesn’t have the explosive pace. Shifting him tonight.

    Bergwijn is pretty good. Really fast with great dribbling. His shooting could be better tho

    Had Allan, didnt like him

    Had Ndombele, good player, average stamina, worth 200k max

    Got Rodri, he is solid, does his job really well, decent pace and a smashing longshot/finesse, deffo a little gem that u can get for free

    All tried at LCM in 41212 with Kante CDM and Doucoure RCM

    Emre Can anyone? Saw a couple of positive reviews in GD but wondered if anyone here has used?

    I currently have Cancelo on 7 chem as RCM for hyperlink to Ronaldo, SMS RB and I swap him and Cancelo in game. However, would use SMS as a RB and swap Cancelo for Can if he's good enough.

    Tagliafico is fantastic, well worth the coins.

    Used sentinel on him and he is a unit on the left side

    Ive used Emre Can and Telles, starting both on 10chem then change to 352 with Can as RCB and Telles LM.

    Can - Excellent CB with a shadow card. He doesnt lose any headers against Ibra or CR7. Great passing and strength.

    Telles - Works great as a LM because he got attacking qualities. His crossing always hits the right player in the box. And doesnt let down if he gets into the box for a finish because i have a hawk card on him.

    I've picked Rodri up, 43k seems a fair price to be honest and it seems an interesting card. There's no chance I'm going to get the free version.

    Mcgeady is really quite poor, same with Odegaard. Other than that I haven't used any other TOTS yet.

    I doubt I'll have time to play enough games, div 2 isn't the easiest. I'll give it a go but I'm not grinding every night for 43k

    Some (quite a lot of them actually) cards even when upgraded (tudi, tots...) still Play like their base cards.

    Created a site (not the best but helps) where you can post player reviews, if interested you can post reviews there (https://futpr.com). It helps everyone in finding reviews without having to search through this site.

    Sold Rodri for a profit just before the free ones dropped. I didn't get on with him at all but I was trying a few new things with my team and none of them worked. In a better set up I can see how he'd be decent.

    Exactly why I chose to make my end game team almost all Icons which play above stats rather than below like TOTS players. Plus and Icon Endgame team will hold my interest longer.

    Still think the TOTYs are better than nearly all icons to be honest after using all the top PIMs even R9.

    He's incredible, you can definitely tell the difference from the FB. I'm not convinced he's 1m better, but he is absolutely better.
