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
