What a player! I got this guy in PL TOTS SBC and holy sh*t he is good. I play this guy beside TOTS Chiellini wich I also got in SBC. Vertonghen is an absolute beast, his interceptions, physical is top, tackles are excellent, he is always everywhere, covering all positions if someone goes in the attack (ex. Aurier) he is there waiting for you. He is not the fastest CB in the game but pop on him catalyst or hunter and he flies.. Also, this guy can score from the freekicks like CR with his powerful shot, you get in scoring chance with Vertonghen you score 100%. The only con that i have with him is his high attacking workrate, he leaves a gap in defence when you are attacking but with strong defender like Chiellini, he will cover that no problem! Recommend absolutley!
High attack workrate
Pace (if chem not used)
Got him via SBC, so solid, so composed with the ball at his feet, superb passing for a CB and pace and awareness to know where to go automatically, its like he is mentally connected with the ball so he knows where it will end up, never gives away fouls since he keeps his eyes on the ball when retrieving it
Pace (75 might not seem like much compared to other CBs but combined with other stats well worth it)
Defending (Not even a tank could knock this guy down)
Passing (literally the Pirlo of centre halves)
Physical (Just don't get to close or he might seriously do harm with that amount of power)
dribbling ( in my opinion his weakest stat but what can you expect he is a defender)
shooting ( That left foot must be rocket powered)
None for defensive display, although be careful with work rates since he pushes forward but doesnt effect to much since he always seems to get back
So i got him from the guarantee sbc and he perfecly fit in my team so i decided give him a try.I wanted to write this review as quick as possible so i used him only in 5 games.First thing i noticed is how strong he is,he always pushes the other player and gets the ball back.His pace seems okay to me he isn't the fastest cb so i used him with shadow chemistry style and he was pretty quick with it.His shooting is acceptable.Passing is good.Dribbling is fine too.Defending is amazing.Physical is amazing too.He is 6'2 not that bad.Overall i think he is really nice CB but for the price i think he is not worth it.
Animal! Can do everything expected of a CB - and he scores so many goals from set pieces / corners as a little bonus.
He is the brick wall you need in the centre of your defense. His tackles, strength, clearances, blocking shots, headers, positioning are all on point. Again I must mention his presence when it comes to corners is unreal If he isn't heading it into the net he is pouncing on a rebound. When you do get a shot off from a corner rebound, its a goal. 95 shot power its like a bloody bullet, takes the keepers head off - they dive OUT of the way!
OK it helps he has a decent defense around him (TOTS BPL Walker, Young & Otamendi) but he is usually always my top defender. Just a shame Alderweireld doesn't have an IF to pair him with.
Some of you may went to put an Engine on him to increase his agility/balance along with pace but I find that Shadow works perfectly fine.
I have nothing negative to say about this guy, nada, zero, zilch. Honestly, no cons (at least so far).
Get this guy in your BPL team. (btw I switch to a 41212(2) in game)
Okay. I did one of the weekly objectives and received a PL TOTS Pack. When I saw the Belgium flag, I was expecting De Bruyne or Lukaku. I got Vertonghen and I was disappointed. But my opinion changed after a few matches. First match, and this amazing CB scored two headers from corners. Awesome. The best CB I used until that moment was 90 Ramos with 86 Nacho, but Jan exceeded all my expectations.
75 Pace - It's okay, he does not need more. It's enough to get past fast forwards and take the ball away.
72 Shooting - It's very good, He has a cannon on his left foot. Penalties are lethal. One of his 18 goals was from outside the box, and nailed it.
80 Passing - Short and long passes are perfect. He has a great vision.
78 Dribbling - His overall is OK, you can see the lack of agility, but he has a great composure, ball control, excellent reactions, and despite his 61 of balance, it's very good.
94 Defending - There are no words to describe how well defends Jan Vertonghen. All its attributes in defense are perfect, almost never commit fouls. He always wins headers, attacking or defending. He understands very well with 92 Manolas.
89 Physical - Here, too, he is perfect. 89 strength it means always pushing the forwards and taking possession of the ball. As I said before, to win all the headers he has to jump a lot. He does it
Positioning (when one of my full backs -Florenzi and Young- goes into attack, he keeps covering his position until they are back)
Shooting (specially Long Shots)
Pace (if you don't have chem style)
3* WF (no matter)
High Attacking Workrate (ex: he stays attacking after a corner)
