    😂

    I would but I refuse to use him. Quite happy with Maldini, Nesta & Cannavaro.

    They clearly can't stop 6 ft 4 players with massive heads from scoring corners though.

    Nice to know that the only way to stop it is to follow all the other sheep who use him.

    Doesn't help either that the game insists on my CAM, Maradona picking him up at corners 🤣🤣

    Any actual advice chaps? Seems impossible to stop which is rather ridiculous when you think about it. Use Zlatan on him?

    It’s not my fault you refuse to use the best defender in the game. I can almost sort of get it when people refuse to use players in FUT because “they're not as good IRL as they are in the game” or because they’ve never watched them play, but VvD actually is the best CB in the world atm.

    I hadn’t used him until I got his TOTS in my WL picks, but he’s been nothing short of amazing for as long as I’ve used him. He really is that good.

    The sheep angle is also interesting. Do you want easy wins? Is that it? Can’t people use the best players they can afford?

    Once again, it’s not my or the community’s fault you refuse to use him and are clearly getting dunked on by him.

    Bro, if man is 6 ft 4 with maxed out heading and jumping and you're defending with men who are between 5 ft 9 and 6 ft 2 the man who is 6 ft 4 will beat the shorter men in the air more often than not.

    Science.

    Zlatan’s jumping lets him down in the air, imo. I’m sure he used to be great back when people had far weaker defenses, but he can’t even win headers against Kimpembe. I never used his FB, but his TOTS wasn’t even as good as TOTS Havertz when it came to winning aerial duels.

    I'd rather use players that I loved watching in real life.

    The sheep line is accurate. The amount of people that have the same team is crazy. Gullit, VVD, Vieira etc. Shows no imagination and merely a do whatever silly Youtuber of the week says and spam whomever is "OP".

    I'm a Div 1 player so by no means do I struggle BTW.

    Those effectively are some of the best players in the game. Doesn’t make someone a sheep for using them, but whatever floats your boat, man.

    So, if you don’t struggle, what’s this thread all about, then?

    Don't get me wrong, I get that. I also have SMS, Perisic & CR7 back there all who are great in the air but none of them seem able to do anything. It's so frustrating and is such a cheap goal to concede as there is very little tactically (choose your marker etc) you can do to prevent it.

    SMS, Perisic and CR7 are just too short/weak and lack the aggressiveness to consistently beat VvD in the air.

    Heck, I conceded like 2 VvD headers from corners this past WL. It happens, that card is just phenomenal.

    General play, I don't struggle. Defending corners against that mutant, yes I do 🤣

    To do honest just try to put someone in front of him and push him manually.....good chance they won't call a foul and it will throw timed finishing off

    Might give Koulibaly a bash. Could be a decent option.

    Still too short, he’s now 6’2”, which is his actual height IRL.

    Crouch at CB seems my only option then!

    Crouch can’t jump.

    Just move your keeper if using VvD would make you get ulcers, then.

    in some situations you just can't stop him, but try knocking him off balance before the ball is crossed. or move the keeper to where he's standing

    He is not better than Gullit....his hair must add like 3 inches to his height.
