Van Dijk that much of an upgrade on Joe Gomez?

VVD's hyperlink with Wijnaldum can help me out for chemistry reasons. For those who have tried both, is he much better than Gomez?

    He’s to slow and stiff.
    In WL u only see 1 vvd and 29 Gomez.

    I don’t like VVD. Nothing like the player he was last FIFA. Slow, gives away penalties and loses out so often in a straight fight for the ball with Mbappe/Jesus/Rashford etc. I just videoed an example of the sort of atrocity he commits regularly for me, but I don’t know how to post videos here.

    I’m pretty cross with him at the moment!

    That's because Gomez is cheaper. VVD is better just a little bit slow accleration. If you play 3 depth or lower, VVD is gonna block all sorts of shots for you.

    I’m sorry your wrong I’ve played against cr7,icon teams but still use nif Gomez.
    I have an untradable vvd yet I use 7 chem Diego Carlos because of acceleration and agility.
    Fifa 21 is a counter attacking game and pace is everything in WL that’s why everyone uses the same back 4.
    Mendy,Varane,Gomez,semedo.

    Inform walker and inform Gomez is probably the best EPL defence partnership in my opinion.

    Much better!

    Gomez is great but Van Dijk is another level. He intercepts everything and feels so strong. If you know how to defend, you wont get anyone better.

    Havent tried either, but you know what catastrophe game is, when Joe Gomez can be better and more effective than Virgil, in any aspect. Stupid arcade.

    The rating of a player should reflect how good a player plays. But.. this is not the case in fifa for a long time. The list of examples is long. For me lewandowski is just one. You never see him in WL for a reason.

    Van dijk is miles ahead as a defender. He’s just slower. But as long as you’re not press on possession loss, 8 depth there’s no issues.

    Do u not think k that is because of price difference

    I found gomez to be terrible and was always out of position

    tbh the rating of the cards are accurate its just people look at the pace stat over the overall card rating, a more accurate way of playing this game would be if the overall card rating was just their pace stat lol

    You never see anybody using a lower rated card over a higher one or even claiming the lower rated is better when the pace are the same

    Indeed, VVD is slow, turning like a truck, can’t handle quick attackers, unfortunately Gomez nif is better than him (I am div 3 gold 2 player, just average so it might be only me)

    It isn’t a question though really, the only people who have Gomez are the ones who don’t want to pay/can’t afford to pay for the upgrade or who want more pace to get out of difficult situations. If you’re half decent at defending and take price out of the question, it’s VVD over Gomez 100 times out of 100.

    Pros are the best people at defending on this game. If a pro went to a tournament now and had the choice of VVD or Gomez I’m pretty sure we know who they’d choose, because they want good defenders not runners.

    Take into consideration you often see these lads play Gomez over VVD to keep the rating lower for qualifiers.
