I kept picking CBs from TOTS SBCs, first I got TOTS Otamendi, next one I got TOTS Azpi then next one its TOTS Godin and then when I was just waiting for that TOTS Pique it turned out to be TOTS Adan, well cant complain as he is really good and fits nicely in my squad.
Otamendi was wort from the three players mentioned above, no question about it, neither he is tall, nor quick, workrates are bad hence he is out of position very often, it was him who I saacrificed and got Adan and wasnt even angry ...
TOTS Azpi obviously is such a machine, quick as f..., surprisingly strong and absolutely superb with starting attacks and keeping possesion, but ... he must be paired with strong and tall CB who will win headers and just support him.
Is TOTS Godin such a player? I did have my doubts at first, he seems to be lacking in pace department, also he is 186cm which is kind of tall yet not very tall and nothing scary either. After a couple of games on basic and then some on catalyst I wasnt impressed really, he was decent at most.
I didnt apply shadow as his defending stats are already great and I thought it would be a waste and boy I was os so wrong ... Obviously shadow and catalyst improve pace esactly the same way, but shadow also makes all defending stats maxed out totally and thats what made a real difference, since I put shadow on him, he became a total total well .. Godin :) he is quick, he is very agile, he will block all them shots somehow and he is capable of taking the ball of any player including TOTS CR7, TOTS Messi, etc., turns out they work so well together with TOTS Azpi its the best CBs partnership I tried this year.
Comparing to TOTY Bonucci for example, TOTS Godin is so so much better, you wouldnt say that judging by his stats, I mean numbers but in game he is absolutely fantastic and must try and he links to some other gret La Liga players too, stron link to Saul who also is one of the best CDMs in the whole game, TOTS FIlipe Luis (yes I know I prefer Gaya, but Filipe is also great), get him now and dont look back, just make sure its shadow and not some silly catalyst/engine/hunter or God knows what else.
- perfect CB, superb standing tackles and interceptions
- positioning out of this world, when everything fails you can still hope he will be there somewhere blocking that screamer with his head/body/back/leg, whatever :)
- perfect passing, ball control, great for tiki-taka and possesion play, doesnt feel clunky and slow to move around like TOTS Pique for example
- he is 186cm, but surely he would be even better if he was 196cm :)
- 5* weak foot would be nice :)
- now, lets be serious, I cannot see any cons, especially bearingin mind his price, get him now !
I was lucky enough to pack him in the SBC. One word. BONKERS. This man in absolutely insane. You don't even have to control him and he makes the cleanest, craziest tackles I have seen from any defender in FIFA. He is honestly the best CB on the game, don't even look at his pace as a con. Him and TOTY Ramos in the back would be impossible to get through.
very great tackles
kinda a nobhead (cause of his agility)
