5.0
WHAT A PLAYER!
By Sokmeneer, 22-05-2018

WHAT A BEAST! I bought him multiple times and every time he takes part in 2 goals per game easily. The only problem is his league and nation. bought him for only 14k. i play him alongside Salah and SBC Promes, but you don't notice that he is this cheap.

Oh my, i was worried to buy this guy for 34k on PC. It was yesterday, after TOTW release. And now i have no doubt, that i have made best 34k in my Fifa career (which is short, i started playing 3 months ago). I've used this card in SB Legendary and Divisions (div 4), he's the fastest and most agile player ive used. He has great dribling, clinical finishing, good stamina, and 4 star WF. What a striker he is. He made 17 goals and 4 assist in 10 matches. His playstyle is very similar to Mertens, he's really a steal for 30k.

  • Pace
  • Dribling
  • 4 WF
  • Agility
  • He has that "something", he's always ahead, he's always in good spot
  • 95 heading, 99 jumping, which makes him quite effective from corners or crosses despite 170 cm height.
  • Definding, but yea he's striker
  • Passing, is quite inconstiant
  • 3 star SM
  • League
  • Nationality
  • Sometimes compousure
  • he can be pushed off the ball quite easy.

Josef Martinez - Cheap IF Jesus
By PeterBeense, 03-04-2018

Played JM in a 5-2-1-2 up front with prime Larsson and Kaka behind them, using the Marksman chem style for better shooting, dribbling and physicality.


I can only say that this man is a god: insane speed and dribbling, very good finishing, decent physical stats and he wins loads of headers at the back post.

I used to play Gabriel Jesus PTG card in his position and they are very similar, but Jesus costs 350k more. After playing 70 games (weekend league and D1) I can now state that he is a very consistent and reliable striker.


If you manage to fit him in your team, do not hesitate because this guy is a monster. Very nice finishing inside the box with both feet combined with insane finesse shots from outside the box and strong headers make him a very complete forward.

Shooting with both feet

Acceleration, especially after a fake shot

99 jumping, he wins a lot of headers at the back post

MLS BEAST
By Razek767, 30-04-2018

Worth every coin, he is the best striker in the game for less than 20 K

He has an amazing shot, he always score in the 1 vs 1 situation and he can score out of the box because his shooting power is amazing, his pace is insane he can pass defences so easily, he make a great duo with Ibrahimovic Swap deals because they combine well,his pass is decent, can assist well,and in terms of phisicality he has 84 in stamina and this made that he can stay fresh all the match ,a curiosity of this player is he has 99 jumping in a player who is an amazing stat in a short player

Almost perfect
By YourPotato, 23-03-2018

I kinda follow MLS and Fut, so I knew SBC Kaka and inform Martinez were upcoming, so I decided to prepare myself for a team around those two. Kaka has enough rave reviews, so I decided to write one about Josef.

Pace: What you see is what you get, 92 pace. Not much to say about this, it's as expected on a striker with 90+ pace.

Shooting: Clinical from inside the box. 89 finishing shows off here, really good. Combine that with the shot power he has, and even keepers with high 'reflex' stats will be fishing the ball out of the net a lot. Please don't use him for long shots though, their accuracy really falls. Volleys are pretty okay, I'd say it feels like 82/83 as long as you don't put much power in them, trust Josef's finishing abilities. Maybe even go for a low driven shot.

Passing: Short passing is pretty good for a striker, but not perfect. He makes accurate passes as long as they don't require some 'sick moves' like turning 90 degrees in an instant, then accuracy may start falling short. Same goes for long passing, but then the beforementioned 'sick moves' cost a lot of accuracy and are best to prevent. Don't let him take your free kicks, he's got 64 accuracy and it really shows.

Dribbling: This is where he shines, really. Always has the ball close to his feet, even when on top speed to make split-second direction changes to make defenders miss-time a tackle and you're free to sprint away. With 3 stars skill moves, you can throw in a roulette or two, for extra 'dankness'. I personally don't use many skill moves, but the lack of a fourth star might be an issue to some.

Defending: Please don't ever defend with Josef (or any other striker for that matter). Heading accuracy is solid, but I'll come back to that in a minute.

Physical: You'd say that 99 jumping means you win every heading duel, but be warned, this is not the case. His 172cm | 5'8" means that he will still not jump ahead of most centerbacks. When there is a bit of space however, with centerbacks having a bad angle at you, or having fullbacks cover you, headers can be deadly. The 95 heading accuracy then shows and always go for any place in the goal to your desire. Stamina is good, haven't had a major issue related to stamina in the 14 games I played him. Strength isn't really good, seems to be set off the ball by defenders earlier than the 82 strength might suggest, sadly.

Verdict: 9/10 With a bit more length and maybe an extra skill move, this man would be godly. He isn't quite there, but is very close.

  • Shot inside the box

  • Tricky passes

  • Fourth star skill moves (to whom it may concern)
