Well here goes my first review. I was forced to write this as Bolasie was genuinely the most fun player I've used this Fifa.
This Fifa seems to be all based around OP wingers such as Alessandrini and Lozano but this guy is a whole new level.
DRIBBLING 10/10 His 5* skills means he is a demon on the ball with his bulky presence. He can easily push off defenders or elegantly glide round them with a cheeky Mcgeady spin.
When performing the skills, he doesn't execute the skill moves as quickly as the Lozanos of Fifa but with his strength he can take that little bit longer.
SHOOTING 7/10 Probably the standout weakness on the card.. he missed a couple of sitters for me, but managed to score some absolute worldies... There was no middle ground with his finishing ability really. What I expected him to finish he didn't. However he still managed to score me 17 goals in 16 games with 10 assists.. ALL THIS ON 7 CHEM at Striker. He scored 2 headers for
PASSING 8/10 I didn't notice any real problems with his short passing, he got me 10 assists. I noticed that his crossing ability wasn't the greatest but I don't really play a crossing tactic. more short passing in and around the box.
DEFENDING ... Normally it wouldn't be appropriate, however I managed to get Valencia sent off one game pretty early and I thought who else can I play there.. I know Bolasie is a BEASSTTT.. he performed good at RB with some sliding tackles saving the opponent breaking on the wing. He felt like playing RB moses.
Other Features of this Card.. 4* weak foot was a great feature of this card. He felt good cutting in to finish shot from both sides of the box.
Stamina is pretty average, 82.. he can finish a game but I felt he slowed down towards the 80th minute.
Positioning.. He was all over the park for me which wasn't too bad as my other players have great positioning which countered Bolasie's exploring nature.
Composure .. 76 .. This may be why he missed a couple of sitters for me. But then again I'm a fairly inconsistent player.
ALL GAMES WERE PLAYED IN DIV 1 & 2
STRENGTH>>>>DRIBBLING>>>>PACE>>>>FUN FACTOR>>>>PRESENCE ON THE PITCH>>>>CAN PLAY RIGHT BACK WHEN VALENCIA IS A NAUGHTY BOY
MISSED SOME EASY GOAL OPPORTUNITIES<<<< POSITIONING<<<<OTHER THAN PREM AND ICONS HE DOESNT FIT INTO ANY TEAM.. HARD TO LINK NATION
I’ve always used martial because of pace,power,4star 4star,
but bolasie has a different definition of pace and power.
I’m pretty sure he has never got knocked off the ball
and his finishing is 73 but ,it just isn’t with that shot power
and his dribbling is god like he turns so quickly you can’t stop him
- shot power
- Every thing pretty much
- takes an extra second to get into stride
- postioning is not the best but
- These are minor cons
FUT Birthday Yannick Bolasie is an unreal card, I played him as a CAM behind Lacazette and POTM Sane. He feels like Paul Pogba, but with a massive pace boost, he can dribble in between defenders like its nothing and can take spectacular long shots. His height and strength make him so hard to knock off the ball that it feels like I am cheating when he is bullying my opponents centre backs. I highly recommend this card, especially as he gets a strong like to Rooney.
Bargain for 60K
Hey, i decied to try out Bolasie FUT Birthday just for fun really. Since Martial is so good still in this fifa, i tought why not. but with more strength, pace and 5* skills?
He is an absolute machine if you use him properly and make use of his pace with strenght. he can be sloppy on the ball. his passing is not the best out there, but why pass when you bully everyone?
Fun player to use
4* weak foot felt like 3*
Hard to link if you want to build hybrids
I replaced my base Hazard with this man and it was a great decision; I got a player just as good, if not better and pocketed that extra 80k. It is quite easy to get him on 10 chem in most formations if you have Birthday Rooney at ST or CM, and if he fits into your squad I would highly recommend getting him.
If you want him to be a play maker, catalyst is a great chem style; if you want him to dance around in the box and score, engine is the perfect chem style. Hunter and hawk are not bad choices either if it suits your play style.
- Perfect pace
- Very solid dribbler
- Solid passer
- Incredibly strong and will bully weaker defenders
- Despite having low shooting stats, it is not a glaring weakness at all times
- 5 star skill moves and 4 star weak foot
- His height will never make a difference; he can't win headers to save his life
- Unless you instruct him to stay forward he will need to be subbed out by minute 60 due to his high defensive work rate
- Low composure
