Reallly like the look of the card as a striker but I have the 87 version and didn’t get on with him? Would there be a big difference to the two playing in game ?

    I think the work rate is different.

    Massive difference. Even from his 87 to 89 but try his loan out and decide for yourself.

    I packed his 89 from an icon swap or SBC some time ago and he bosses things so can only imagine his PIM will be really good.

    I loved his 91, he bounds forward with the ball, nice and strong, quality finishing also.
    I’m 5 squads in, can do another 2/3 but I’m likely gonna have an 86&87 left to do over the coming week.

    I have used the 91 this and the last few fifas and never tried him out wide, just not sure it would make use of him really.

    6,4 H/A body type and lowish agility and balance, looks like he'll be super lumpy

    Please someone tell me that's not the case and he can glide

    Also a reminder, make sure you do the first two segments of each of the PIM SBC's, the rare bronze and silver ones. Good way to clear out unused cards if you have them, for a few more packs.

    Also if you have any rare bronze GKs get them sold... :)

    This!!

    Think there are only like 20 Rare Bronze GKs on the game, and people buy them despite the squads only needing 50 chem and you can whack any Bronze Rare in

    Usually go for 1-2k but some go for more!

    No he's certainly not gliding, but his shot is up there with tapanaldo.

    Perfect for what i want. Will do the loan begore committing to him but wanted a bigger player to play along side prime marodana as strikers. And he will get FB pequita on full chem for me so multiple wins for what I need

    I think i'll complete him, Tried the loan 4 games and he felt great. Have a ton of High rated untradeables and pack return is decent.

    He doesn’t feel as clunky as you would expect. Love him every year. He is not Top tier by any means but good enough for 95% of all FIFA players.

    Soccertits is probably the one I'd go for before any keeper.

    He doesn’t glide but he doesn’t feel clunky either. Using Engine on him. His shooting and passing are elite. Physical presence is quite dominant and he holds the ball well and batters through players too but then again at 6’4 you somewhat expect that. I would say he was the perfect mix of playmaker and target man - you could use him in either role and do well.

    Personally using him RCAM in a 4222, CCAM in a 4231 and CAM in a 41212(2). Rotating those in game based on opponents and play styles. 10 games, 10 goals and 6 assists. Noticing he tends to play the ball before the assist, IE he sets the winger in with an awesome through ball, winger then crosses it back in and Socrates scores…! He’s been great aerially for me, and I’ve had issues with headers for about a week now to the point I’ve switched formations and tactics to try new things and new players. As a wide CAM he’s got a couple of back post headers. Best goal - he basically ran the pitch unstoppable, holding off the CDM most of the way, then got in to the box, L1 dribbling between about 3 defenders and a little dink beyond the GK.

    Will wait to around 25-30 games in before saying he’s in until the end but looks that way. He offers more than others can in the role with the added physicality and height, 5* WF is a massive bonus and if you can use target men or don’t mind a slightly lower balance stat (90 with Engine anyway) he’s absolutely fine. Super fun to play with, and that’s all I care about end of the day!
