First of all, I'm fan of Chelsea so I bought him immediately after he's on market. I'm writing to argue with some hidden traits you might wanna know before use him in your primary squad. Compare Giroud's data with 88 Harry Kane, you can see Giroud is way better than Kane EXCEPT in pace, BUT is just this pace can make a big difference. I don't know why but there must be some links b/w pace and shooting and passing, I use a pace booster chem and make TOTS sterling/IF Tadic(highly recommend, he's so OP) and now it might seem Okay to use Giroud as a traditional England centre, however you're wrong. After sufficient games I've played, I've found Giroud is lack of some shooting and passing agility which is not showed in 'Agility' option, like turning around, dribble stopping, actually he's not a solid centre when we want a centre that can organize with wings, and his long shooting and horizontal turns are limited since his agility. Same difficulty, same squad, similar opponents, his performance is worse than 88 Harry Kane. If you have a two-striker squad pair with like TOTS Firmino, Aguero etc it would be fine, but as a solo centre striker, I suggest a 88 Kane or Diego Costa.
Mid-Short shoot. Long shoot if it's a cut-in.
And everything associated with that, eg. shoot alongside defender, long shoots, passing and dribbling.
Ok so I have never done a review on here before, and I never thought I would. So I find it hilarious that I am doing it on a player who is so slow yet so effective. I had to use Giroud in order for chem and I had his 20 game loan so I said why not! Last week, he qualified me for FUT Champs which he did so easily. It seems like people are honestly scared of him cause they don't know how to defend against him other than fouling or beating him with pace. I entered the DKT this week hoping to win CALLEJON and Giroud won me in!!! I never thought I would say that. He got something like 9 goals in 4 game, unreal. Besides the fact that he makes everything in the air, if you hold LT, he basically makes every bicycle or scorpion kick. Better than TOTS Ibra flair last year, he goes for fancy kicks out of nothing.
* Hold up play
* If you can't play with slow players, don't bother
* Slow as a semi
* Skill moves and WF
I played 20 matches at loan Giroud and he is Beast. He can shoot form any position .When he run no one could stop him.
His headers was awsome. But he can't run and his dribbling isn't good.
-Pace Pace and Pace
-Maybe stamina and workrates M/M
Hold up play is unbelievable as he has strength, height and power. If you ever get a chance to shoot with him, basically 10 out of 10 times its going in. Crosses are now useful as Giroud wins practically everything in the air.
shooting, curve, composure, strength, height, headers,
3 star weak foot
2 star skills
agility and balance ( not that it effects this tank too much)
