Gianluigi Buffon - 98 - Premium SBC
4.5
Il Capitano !
By echev98, 21-07-2018

I can't believe all the bad review I'm reading. Let me start by saying I'm a Juventus fan, a Buffon fan and have played since Christmas with the Xmas Buffon edition in one squad.(I have two to avoid wasting coins on fitness). I have played around 1700 games on FUT this year, and about 300-400 I have used the Christmas card, so I know a lot better than reviewing him after only 4 matches. I have used the likes of Begovic, Ederson, De Gea, Scmeihel, Sczezny, Handanovic, Reina, Perin, Ter Stegen, Navas, etc. The only high rated I haven't played are Neuer and the icons (except icon Scmeihel, excuse me for writing it wrong).


I didn't like the gold card of Buffon, I felt there was way better keepers for way better price, then I tried his christmas cards and was a huge improvement. And this card is a huge improvement from that one. Not gonna lie, I was dissapointed the first match because 2 shots 2 goals, but as I'm fan of the card I went other 15 matches with him. First thing I noticed was his speed improvement, that helps those hateful through balls to those hateful speedy strikers/wingers. Over those matches he has made a lot of great saves and dives. His main strengths, IMO, are his reflexes and his positioning. When he blocks the opponent's shots, his dives doesn't seem so flashy because of how well positioned is this card, rarely out of place. And then we have his reflexes, he's pulled me some amazing saves, stopping shots from everywhere. In corners/crosses he does his job (nothing exceptional). If he has any weakness are low driven shots, but those is an Achilles heel for most keepers (even those with saves with feet trait).


Bottom line, he is a legend, a cheap one (98 rated goalkeeper), end of an era Buffon, so sad to see him leave(not the same in PSG).If you have our club stacked with tots cards and high rated untradeabe, sure do this sbc, you won't regret it. If you need to spend like 40-60k, sure do this sbc, you won't regret it. If you don't have any player and you need to spend 140k to get him, then think about it twice, because goalkeepers aren't that game changing. If you are a Buffon fan, sure do it, he'll do the job.

Buffon!

This review is based on games in the WL.First couple of experiences with Buffon were pretty much the same most other reviews I have seen on this page - I found that thinking I had a 98 rated keeper behind me made my defending sloppy and I basically let my opponent have shots being far to confident. After those 2 horrendous loses that (I was sure were Buffon's fault )I started to treat him as any other keep...

Buffon... who doesn't like him?

So, finally a Buffon special card that is worth trying. Since my defense usually sucks, I am very dependent on a good keeper. I tried a well known legend this Weekend League: Gianluigi Buffon, the man, the legend. He was doing extremely good in the first 10 games. No mistakes at all and only low driven shots were able to get though my Italian bulwark. Bonucci and Ma...
