I bought ptg saul to link my sbc koke and he looked very good card. Not the best, but does his job as cm could. He's left-footed which helps so much when building laliga squads. Feels better than the stats tell.
Not the fastest, but not so slow. Acceleration is only 73 but I can deal with it. Give him chem style to boost it.
Looks bad, but it's better than it looks. Positionin is good. His long shots aren't powerful but they are accurate. Can finish changes in box. Good heading.
Pretty good. Comfortable and accurate passes, but nothing special. Bad curve.
Enough to me. Well-rounded dribbling stats and it feel same. With L1 or R2L2 he is even better. Balance isn't the best, but you can't see it in game.
His best side. High defensive work rate, good standing tackle and interceptions. Is always in right place and wins headers. Tall enough and good jumping.
Stamina is ok. I sub him sometimes but he can play 90 minutes if he's used in the right way. Strength is good. Aggression is bad but with hawk I can't see it.
3+4 are great. 4 star weak foot on left-footed cm is rare. M/H work rates are good when other cm attacks more. Good height to midfield. And he's really easy to spot in pitch because that sweatband!
-Pace for somebody
I used Saul's NIF card on my fitness squad for a while, it was not bad for the team. This card is not up to the price or rating. I used Paulinho on my squad at the cm position since the beginning, that guy has been wonderful. Compared to him, paying 58k more for PTG Saul, does not seem justifiable at the moment. May be his next IF will make him better. To add, I used him with a shadow. His 85 rated MOM card was out of this world in Fifa 17.
His pace is not bad as Defensive mid with Shadow on him. Didn't have trouble chasing down players.
I don't want to talk about it. He just can't shoot. Just leave it at that.
His passing wasn't bad in game. Nothing too good, nothing too bad.
He turns like a tank, He can't dribble.
This and decent passing stats were only thing that I wanted from him. He defends decently. His tackles are fine. There are some players in Fifa 18 that you can say that he is everywhere, but he is not one of them. He doesn't have that "Fifa 17 Kante" or "Bakayoko" factor.
His strength is 79 and stamina is 83. I assumed they must be decent. But wasn't. He can't keep up with strong players, and after 70 minutes, he is all drained.
In real life, he is an excellent big game player. I think he will get more IFs. This card could an investment at the moment and nothing else justifies paying that much.
