When PTG promo was on, I got Gelson Martins in my tenth pack. I had spend all my coins in sbcs, so I decided to keep him. And the story continues.
First I used him as a supersub, and he was phenomenal. But when I did my second team, I managed to link him in starting 11. And now he works even better.
Pace: Ridiculously good. 96 acceleration and 95 sprint speed speak for itself, but he's even more even without chemistry styles. He's 5'8", so he feels even faster. Fastest player I have tried in this fifa I guess.
Shooting: Better than you expect. 78 shooting looks bad, but after adding sniper on him it's pretty good. His finesses are unstoppable cause 93 curve. But I would rather use power shot with him than low driven although he's pretty clinical. I think his agility helps him to shoot in difficult angles. He has also chip shot trait.
Passing: Good. Vision is good, short pass in decent and curve is 93. But his long passes are bad. Better than 62, I think but bad still.
Dribbling: MAD. 97 agility and balance are perfect. He isn't strong, but you can't push him down. He has speed dribbler and technical dribbler traits, and oh boy he shows it. He Simply can't lose the ball. Ball control and dribbling are good, as well as composure and reactions. And 5 star skills. So good. And, I forgot, he has flair trait. Phenomenal.
Defending: Not much to talk about. He' s bad in defending. But he's fast and can catch fast strikers in corner counterattacks.
Physical: Weak. Bad strength, aggression and jumping. But really good stamina. He can easily run 90 minutes in a match.
Others: 3 star weak foot is bad, but luckily he's so agile and can turn to right foot in almost every situation. 5'8" is almost perfect for little dribbler. H/M work rates are good for CAM. And acrobat speciality isn't bad, or is it?
Overall: Really good player from bench or in starting 11. Can destroy defenders with only fake shot or cheeky elastico and McGeady spin. Works on RW or CAM, but he's not ST. Worth of coins. And it's veeery fut to play with him.
