Is this 93 Witsel a win for us or a trick to drain fodders?

I know 140K SBC for a 93 rated good looking card is attractive, however, I do see several caveats on this card:

1. low acceleration. We all know for CDM acceleration is much much more important than sprint speed, unfortunately, this card has lower acceleration than the flashback Sahin who was released 3 weeks ago. The fancy pace stats after shadow on this card may not translate to quick in game runs.

2. low balance. I'm not a person saying 90+ balance is essential, but I do get worried when a card has only 74 balance. I don't know well this card can hold the ball and turn in midfield...

3. Clunky in game model. It's obvious that there are hidden things besides the stats determining how a card move and dribble in game. Unfortunately, Witsel has been clunky like a trunk in FIFA20, I doubt this one would be different.

4. There are so many good choices for pure CDM position at this stage of the game (I assume people are not going to use this card for attacking). I have tried TOTS Anselmo and TOTS Kroos (both red pick) and they both the the defending job down perfectly. Even for people who must use bundesliga CDM, you got SBC players FB Kimmich, moment Goretzka, and FB Sahin (if you have to use bundesliga CDM, I assume you have done at least one of this SBC), and tradeable options like TOTS Kimmich and SS Mbabu. I doubt Witsel is comparable to any of them.

I do have some fodders but not plenty of fodders, do you guys think I should spend them on this SBC? I do need some suggestion

    He has 90+ ball control and 86 dribbling he can hold the ball well.
    You don’t need to be turning on a dime with him.

    apparently Gullit is better... 5 start week foot, high balance (considering his height), high acceleration, good in game model, overpowered hair...

    Bro, do you think stats tell everything in game...? there are something hidden. A well known example is that prime Figo is slower with ball in game than mid Figo, although having higher pace and dribbling relevant stats...

    Of course it is a trick. EA has realized an affordable CDM for each league so far, then they will jack up the rating of the guaranteed one.

    He’s definitely better than his 85.. I didn’t have his Xmas one..
    I only tried him one game so it’s not a justice or good enough review but he felt strong and good on ball and I need a good chem on him for quickness

    He is insane value for a CDM. He is only the only CDM with M/H that has 4* WF and 4* skills.
    With Shadow he is fast enough.
    I am someone that play high depth, i need my midfielder that doesn't lose the ball too much. He is great value. Don't fooled to buy tots CDMs like De jong, Phillips who are 800K plus. After getting high rated red picks, i probably only spent like 10K. I love him and currently 11-0

    Yeah, so the cost is actually a lot higher than 3k. More like the cost you'll find on Futbin.

    do you think he is better than TOTS Anselmo + shadow as CDM?

    This card looks good but doesn't fit my team at all, only could get him on 8 chem max. And I pretty much have plenty of CDMs that are maybe not as strong defensively as him, but are much more well rounded in other areas and fit way better in my team. Think I'll pass.

    @NucksNation Only reason not to do him is if you can't link him, otherwise he is steal

    Stats mean nothing when players have characteristics and animations that either are meta or not.

    Witsel is good statswise, a decent card IG, but he's not Gullit. He's nowhere near the level of Gullit. I packed his mid earlier and it's just two different worlds. Stats really don't mean all that much

    I have his FutMAS version so is it worth it?

    My club is pretty threadbare, fodder wise, though I have about 150k tied up in some players.

    I wouldn't be interested in using the 93 as fodder again, so is it that good a card (not for the price, just good full stop).

    I have a few decent CDM already, Kante, FB Diaz, the aforementioned FutMAS version of Witsel himself, Thorsby, a few in my Chilean hybrid whose name I can't remember (Chilean plays for A.C Milan).

    None, except maybe Kante, are end game, (though are adequate for my level of interest) but I am thinking I'd rather save any coinage for a third CB to go with Refresh Ake and VVD.

    no one is comparing Witsel with Gullit... The reason he said Gullit was better than this 93 Witsel is only because there was a guy in this thread who was trying to prove this 93 Witsel was great by posting Witsel's stats and Gullit's stats... He was just pointing out looking at the stats alone was meaningless, as other factors also affect card's in game performance.

    I'm more curious how is 93 Witsel compared to TOTS Anselmo, SS Mbabu, TOTS Kimmich, as well as previous SBC players like FB Kimmich, moment Goretzka, and FB Sahin. Among those players I mentioned, several are cheaper or may be cheaper in the future than this 93 Witzel.

    My apologies, I was t referring to your post but original stats of comparing the two.. of stats and player were identical, price wouldn’t 6.4mil apart

    Haha thx, I only needed to buy Casteels for 1800 coins. I already have 4 or 5 quality CDMs that I can play on 7/8 chem but everyone and their grandma on this forum and youtube was raving how awesome this guy is... really wish this SBC had no expiry date but it is what it is. Really hope he's worth it, pretty much broke with most of my fodder gone.

    There have been uncountable overpriced SBCs with little regard for the community throughout the year. Yet once EA releases a well-priced gem in a blue moon like Witsel, people find a reason to complain. This card literally has the perfect combination of stats, WRs and 4*/4*. No brainer really if you can half-link him.

    I really don’t get what people want from Fifa sometimes . The card costs nothing to complete at this stage of the game . Sure the card isn’t unbelievable , I’ve played him for around 8 games now and he’s decent . Really huge presence in midfield.
    Someone asked earlier if he’s better than TOTS anselmo and I don’t think there’s too much difference

    I done him and only played 3 games with him but I will say this I've noticed even with stay back instruction on him he likes to push up the pitch because he has high attack position. He is my CDM in 41212 (2) and sometimes ends up swapping with a CM.

    Well I’ve used baby Vieira for over 100 games and SBC Witsel for 10 and so far Witsel feels better in game and an upgrade overall! Baby Vieira costs 1 mill, Witsel costs 150k. Value for money is there.
