Suarez chemistry....

Just been playing with the chemistry tool on Futbin (my new favourite site) I tried Suarez with an "Anchor" chemistry for the strength/jumping/heading/pace boost which IMO is all he really needs. Am I being stupid in putting a defensive chem on a striker?

    Why would you not use hawk in that case? Substitutes defending for shooting

    Because heading is part of the defending stats.

    Nah, makes sense to me. Ive heard his balance is bad, so I'd probably use whatever Chem card boosted that.

    To be honest @Austintatious it's that bad that you can't really touch it with a chem style to make it anywhere near decent.

    Got his SBC, played about 6 matches with him and he seems fine to me.

    Yeah personally have no problem with his SBC either, very strong on ball, and has dribbled past quite a few already. Albeit put a hunter on him but no complaints, and has put away a few headers already so not concerned about that at all tbh

    Fair enough, he looks like a great card anyway.

    Not at all. If his shooting is near maxed and boosts would be wasted, this is probably the best way to maximize his stats.

    It seems counterintuitive, but it's not crazy.

    I'm not going to spam crosses at all, it would just be nice if the 6' ish striker had good heading. It opens up another option when attacking.

    That's what I was thinking, his shooting stats are so good do they really need a boost?

    84 heading isn't good? Would rather get positioning, finishing, long shots and shot power all maxed at 99

    Looking at the stats I'd go hawk on the NIF. There's still plenty of room on most of those stats. On the SBC? Toss-up.

    The NIF only has 77 heading.

    Try Guardian for defense and dribbling boost. Or Engine for +10 balance boost.

    Thought you had the SBC. Hawk makes even more sense on the nif tho
