88 - TOTS
By lucassj90, 05-05-2018

Honestly, I wasn't expecting he will be that good! Currently I'm using spanish league players in a 4-1-2-1-2 (2) formation and Jordi Alba was my last choice on LB. Everyone knows that JB is a very good player for a non-rare card, but man oh man.... José Luís Gayà Peña is something else!

Playing with his card like a cheat. He can outrun and tackle anyone, no matter if he's competing Cristiano Ronaldo, Aubemeyang, Prime R9 or even Lord Bendtner. He will catch and completly destroy any opponent. His crossing is mad as well. I've got CR7 and Luis Suarez on strikers positions, and they must be very thankful to me for getting them such a great partner on the left wing (I'm not the kind of a player, who wants his LB and RB to stick just to their own half).

He has the same pace rating as Prime R.Carlos, but yet he is better in defending and physical ratings than the Real Madrid's legend. That's MAD! You can really feel in the game, believe me! Just 100k for him is a bargain of the year! (I was lucky to get him from free SBC, so he cost me something around... 5k)

At the start I've been planning to use Gaya just for next TOTS SBC's, but now I'm sure he will stay with me 'till the very end of the game!

  • PACE! (he can catch everyone!)
  • Tackling (he is like a Terminator!)
  • Balance (not easy to get fooled by dribblers)
  • Stamina (he can easily handle a whole game of running from box to box)
  • Crossing (He's like SEAT. Spanish spirit, German precision)
  • In my tactic RB's and LB's has a couple opportunities to score through the game, so I can tell that his finishing could be a bit better... But hey, he's a defender after all, right? ;)

To be honest, when I packed this guy from the sbc I was really disapointed. But I decided to stick him into my squad to give him a shot and oh boy, my opinion changed in no time. In the LB spot I have used a lot of different players like, marcelo, alba, rose, alaba, alex sandro and even roberto carlos, but I can say with every bone in my body that this is one of the best LB players I have ever used. So for me he will stay i...

All purpose left back

Each year I start out my Liga Santander starter squad with Gaya as my left back, previous years he's been one of the first to leave the squad for a better alternative, mostly Jordi Alba or Filipe Luis. This year tho, it might take som time before I let go of him. Bought for a mere 1200 coins in the first days of FIFA early access, the value for money is insane. He seems to be extremly well balanced in attack and defe...

There is no other word. This guy is next level. Easily the best left back I've used in any fifa, and this fifa I've gone through alex sandro, totgs rodriguez, alba, alaba, pretty much anyone who's not over 150k. His defending is spot on, tackling is great, great touch, and his pace is enough to catch up to anyone. Used him in DKT for callejon and in squad battles on legendary. For just over 100k, pick him up.
