I don't know where to begin from.
But I think I will go from the negatives I read in several forums about this card and what a waste of money his SBC has been.
People blame this card for being very slow, not agile and that the player in games does not feel very strong - low balance etc.
So, in my opinion - and I have tried Salah PotM (who is the exactly opossite player), Wilson IF, Zaha IF, Gabriel Jesus, Lukaku, Higuain, Mertens, Icardi SIF, and many others, Harry Kane is by far the best finisher.
And he is the best mover off the ball as well.
You don't need just pace in this game.
This guy has it all, you will not dribble with him.
Just play 1-2 with your CAM or the ST next to him and finish with 99,99% accuracy.
Last but not least: His right foot is a cannon. If you find more than 2 inches of room ... BANG! His low driven shots are the best in the game.
PS: I have tried him in a CM or CAM position in order to add a faster attacker on the front, but there is no point to have him far from the goal. Just circle him with fast players (I have Mane and Sane next to him)
Strength (yes I know he is the strongest but his strength is enought for an one touch finisher that he is)
Shooting (long shots, low driven, or even just normal shots from everywhere go in)
Holp up Play
Stamina (never seen him under 60% of stamina)
Passing (imo his passing should be better, it does not let you down, but at times he makes some really dumb passes)
Weak Foot (it is not exactly a negative, but I think it is more like 3,7-3,8 Stars Weak Foot, than the 4 Stars we see on his card)
Well at first... I dont know why i did this challenge maybe his card looks great and in FUT17 he was a beast.
I play him in a 4-3-1-2 with Mane POTM as forward. I tried a lot of forwards in FUT18 and i will compare him to some similar players. Ibrahimovic, Higuain and Diego Costa.
But at first some words to Kane. He has a very good stamina and he can run in minute 80 as in minute 15. His Workrates are great. He is everywhere on the pitch.
His Dribbling and passes are crap and i dont know how he get 89 Strength it feels like 60. So everytime he got the ball he lose it cause he was tackled or made such a shit movement.
So lets compare him to Ibrahimovic:
Ibrahimovic is a much better in Finishing, Dribbling, Passing and Physical doesnt matter what the card stats are showing. Three things where Kane is better are the Workrates, Stamina and Pace but thats not worth the 100k difference.
Compare to Higuain he looks a bit better:
Higuain feels better in movement and dribbling but Kane is much better in Finishing and Penaltys. Pace, Workrates and Passing they are nearly the same players.
At least Diego Costa:
Kane is much better in everything. Faster, better in Finishing, better in Passes, Workrates and so on. Maybe Diego Costa is better in Headers. But the Price difference is about 200-250k so i dont think if Kane is so much more worth than Costa.
I dont like Harry Kane in the game he doesnt feel like an good Forward. He hit the post and bar more than the goal. I paid 260k for him and its to much. I never would make the sbc for him again. Ibrahimovic and Higuian for me are much better and cheaper. So i think you should make the loan sbc before you make the Challenge for him cause i think its waste money.
the sbc for Kane is unstoppable, as a player who loves shooting from outside the box and across goal, Kane is a freak, amazing shot power and amazing finishing, his positioning is sometimes weird and he can get caught out with his lack of pace, but his finishing and strength on the ball are incredible, i use him in a very good team but honestly he would in your everyday budget prem team. I got lucky being able to complete the sbc for 150k but it was worth every penny
Across the box shooting
i personally like using 2 striker formations and he is simply unstoppable in 1 and 2 striker squads. his shooting is unreal, it feels unfair when shooting and i have given him a 5 star game changer rating since many times he has scored the winning goal for me or just the fact that 1 on 1 he almost never misses and his shots are so accurate that no keeper can stop him. not the quickest but feels around 81, not 76. my only issue is his dribbling, he turns very slowly, not very agile and 3* skills dont help.
free kicks, penalties
3 star skills
As a spurs fan, Harry Kane was a must buy. 220k was spent in total, a fair price for a striker of his quality.
After 10 games, he did very little, due to him playing as a lone striker in a 4-3-3 (4), with Alli behind him. I thought he would play far better with a better passer of the ball behind him, as well as a quick striker along side him; so I tried him in a 4-1-2-1-2 Narrow, with Sane at RS. Ever since this change he has been a goal scoring machine. I play Mertens as a CM behind him. If the strike force is lacking pace, I will switch him and Kane in-game. Kane also doesn't disappoint as a CM. His distribution is second to none, pinging balls up to Sane and Mertens; his long shot is also insane, if he's in the 30yard area, take the shot.
I am only Div 3, and I play legendary Squad Battles.
If you got him whilst he was out, good buy if not, you're missing out :/
- Shooting 92 - Near every shot will go on target, and 9/10 will go in.
- Dribbling 83 - A bit clunky at times, but that is expected with a striker of his height.
- Passing 78 - Feels about 88, rarely misplaces a pass.
- Physical 86 - Is this Harry Kane or Akinfenwa?? He rarely gets muscled off the ball, insane strength. Stamina is also great.
- Defending 47 - This may be surprising, but when playing CM he tracks back a fair bit, but does not fail at his defensive duties.
- Pace 76 - Not the best, but not the worst. Only 'Con' I could think of
