92 Toty Nominee Bale is just awful

I’ve played 11 online games with this card. 0 goals and 0 assists in champs and rivals. Is anyone else unable to use him. Can’t close dribble, feels incredibly slow (no way he has 2 less pace than Lozano) can’t score, can’t jump, gets pushed off the ball. Going into the first sbc I need to complete.

Before you comment and say I’m trash I know I’m not good, Div 2 and gold 3 but I can score with anyone else but him.

    I had the same problem. Same division. He was a disaster. I was about to send him to an SBC because during a match he missed two chances, scored an own goal and avoided a Piqué goal when he was about to score. One more match for him and ...

    Hat-Trick, amazing free kick, winning goal, today 2 goals again. It was the game, not Bale. Keep him. He will play better when the game decides.

    I haven’t found him as bad as that but I regret doing him. By all accounts it looks like you need to play him up front.

    The best thing about him is the headers and strength. He feel much more slower and worse at close control than Lozano because of the balance body type

    He has finally scored his first goal. But it was a tap in which I was very concerned he’d miss. Still not loving this card in the slightest

    I don’t cross but I’d expect him to finish some shots when I cut in on his left. They just don’t go in.

    If you don't cross a lot or play him at striker at 7 chem he's kinda useless. He's scoring a lot for me though in my 442(2) possession squad. I cross a lot though.

    Scores on corners more than anyone else I have too. Basically how I got the la liga defender assists done in 4 games.

    I bring him off the bench around 70 mins up front. He’s been great so far. Won me a few games as I have the ability to mix it up with him up top.

    I’ve tried everything I feel like. 14 games 1 goal and 0 assist. Might just get Promes or something because it’s **** me off now. I have no other words for him other than useless. I’ll give him the rest if week to prove me wrong or else it’s the chopping block.

    He just scored 2 more. It´s the game. I remember when I first tried him and he was not an inch of the player he is now. Of course, soon the game will decide he will be useless again for a few matches, but now he is amazing.

    Edit : And 2 more. Now he is a scoring machine. This game ... :D

    For me he plays better at ST position. Scored some nice headers

    This is why I waited when the hype dies. Every youtube hyped him up saying how he's like the best valued sbc ever or something.

    I had my suspicion when I tried his nif a while back and thought he's a slow poke. I guess I dodged a bullet here. Phew.

    He's good, but not amazing. He got most of my WL run and I noticed he's good in the air, if you can get him on his left, if....then he's got a great shot. Passing his fine, the poor balance is noticeable tho, and for me he has the worst first touch I've seen ... He doesn't feel like a 92 rated

    Play him R ST in a two up front. Pass from left to his left foot. First time shot. Repeat.

    He has 11 in 21 WL games for me (usually take him off after 70 mins).

    Playing ST in a 352. He’s missed a few chances I wouldn’t expect him to, chances which in a tight WL game you need to finish, but in other games he’s won games for me, most of those goals have been headers.

    His finishing is nowhere near the standard of his strike partner Eusebio and you’re always aware he doesn’t have much of a weak foot, but he’s definitely contributing. Playing a crossing game helps too.

    Yup I was u sure about it and I saw the Nepenthez video saying he’s the best sbc ever and thought... well even if that is an over exaggeration he should still be good. I was mislead.

    His nif is actually a good card start of game but the sbc would have been great 5 months ago but not. Now
