I will start saying i'm not a big fan of the normal gold Firmino card, pretty incomplete and not competitive imo.
I use to have Alexis Sanchez as my best striker, he scored plenty of goals for me and some of them were awesome, unfortunately in FUT it's very difficult for guys like Sanchez or Messi to make it,they get bulled even by average players like Lazio Lukaku's or Smalling. So i decided to buy 2 tall strikers, one of them is Lukaku which price went down in last weeks, and other one this version of Firmino. He is a very very complete player, don't expect him to go as fast as Jesus, Martial and others, but the guy has other abilities.
- VERSATILITY: I have only tried him with HUNTER chemistry, so that is my review: He can play as a striker, as CAM, and maybe also even on the wing. Very few strikers are this versatile.
- Long distance shots. If you have the chance, don't doubt, just shot.
- Height, 1'81 and 78 of strength is key, a bit lower would make him very soft for Big and fast defenders. This guy is the closest thing to small-fast strikers but taller.
- Stamina, 89, very important for weekend league. Also you can start him as ST, and then bring on a ST from the bench and then play Firmino as a midfielder.
- Ball control. You feel pretty safe when he has the ball
- In long shots, he may feel slow sometimes before taking the shot, let's say he needs more time than a super player (Cristiano Ronaldo, Icons, etc..) to make that shot happen.
- Expensive, 120.000 would be a very good price. In around 2 months i'm pretty sure it will go down.
