Kyle Walker - 83 - Normal
4.0
A DECENT OPTION
By Thimios, 03-01-2018

Kyle Walker plays in Man City, in the English Premier League. That makes him good choice for hybrids (strong link with Dele Alli or inform Rooney{recommended}) with a good CB. Now let's talk about his stats. PACE is deadly! 90 pace (especially 93 sprint speed) makes him a very good option (if not the best) according to pace.

DEFENDING is not as good as the card says. His interceptions are poor(78) and so is his marking. Although, his tackling is very good (82-83). The good thing is that his pace corrects all of his faults!

PHYSICAL is also poor. Strength and aggression are bad (for a player of his level and price) but his stamina is lethal (90!).

PASSING is quite good, exactly what you expect from a RB. He will get you some assists and create some chances using also his pace.

DRIBBLING is very good for a RB with very good reactions and composure. Despite his agility is quite low (70), it makes almost no difference.

SHOOTING, surprisingly is very good, mainly because of shot power (86). He scored much more goals than my midfielder Alli did! Shooting is another "con" of him.

The best RB in the Prem!!
By dodea1, 29-12-2017

I had been looking to find a Right back option to slide into my roughly 1 million coin La Liga/Premier League Hybrid, and after previously trying Aurier, Valencia, and Carvajal, I can say without a doubt that Walker has been the best option I have used. While some of the other reviews commented on his price tag being too high for what they believed he was worth, Walker's price has come down to about 20k, where I believe he is definitely a great value. USE A SHADOW ON HIM.

  • Pace: While Walker and Valencia's cards look very similar, This is definitely one area where I felt walker was better in game, he has the ability to simply blow past defenders down the right wing, and can track back to catch even the fastest LWs and Strikers in the game.
  • Defending: Walker has incredible defensive stats once you apply a shadow chem style to him, and for me really doesn't feel like he makes many mistakes defensively. In the event that he is caught out of position on the attack, he always seems to catch up to the attacker and make a strong challenge, additionally, he would come over and block shots in a more central position when my CBs made a mistake, and saved me a number of goals with a well timed slide.
  • Physical: This is where walker stands out most from Valencia for me. Even though they have relatively similar Physical stats in game, Walker feels like an absolute tank on the ball or defending. He can boss around the likes of CR7 with ease, and when he comes in with enough momentum to a challenge, there is no way the defender can hold him off. Also easily shrugs off defenders on the attack.
  • Shooting: Isn't a great shooter of the ball, but has managed to score a few goals for me. he's fast and strong enough to put himself in positions to score where his shooting doesn't matter.

Mehhhhh...

I used him for 148 games. Was he good?


PACE

Outstanding. He was lightning quick, especially with an anchor. Absolute beast.


SHOOTING

For a RB, it was great. He got 4 goals in the games I played with him, which was good. But then again, he's a RB, so he won't exactly get into goal-scoring positions often.


PASSING

He got 14 assists in those games, and again it was good.


DRIBBLING

At this point, your thought is probably "Is he bad at anything?", and so far, no.His dribbling was once again great and he could skim defenders with ease.


DEFENDING

THIS is why he's a huge letdown. Half the time he would be rooted to the spot, and most tackles/interceptions would be bad or result in something bad.


PHYSICAL

This was OK. He wasn't that strong, but did the job when it came to bullying his opponents.


MISCELLANEOUS

His work-rates were great for a RB, his height was solid, his stamina was great, but his weak foot wasn't that good, but what do you expect from a 2 star?


OVERALL

Kyle Walker...is he good?


To be honest, he's way too inconsistent to tell. For the first 10-ish games he was decent. Then for the next 80 or so, he was the best RB in the game. But all good things must come to an end. The last 50 games weren't so good. He was back to that decent run of form for a while, then he was bad, then good, then decent again. And the last 15 games especially, he was at his worst.He would be better at a wing back IMO, so if you play 5 back i'd give him a try.

Pace.

Attacking stats.

Passing and Dribbling.

ANYTHING to do with defending (except physical which is meh, but that can still count as a con).

Not worth 40k...

Kyle Walker is nothing special, if he is not apart of your squad; You're not missing out on much. Maybe when he gets a couple IF cards he will be great, but at the moment he is a waste of coins. His high attacking work rate makes him play up field and this leads to some attacks being ruined or slown down dramatically.

Not worth the coins at all
By letsgolads, 20-12-2017

Okay, I sniped him at 20k thinking he was going to be the best RB I've ever seen to replace Aurier in my BPL squad but man, he's much worse than Aurier.

He doesn't seem to run like is pace says he does, he doesn't defend better than a 75 RB and idk, he isn't worth the coins.

If you want a BPL RB go for Aurier with Shadow chem or Valencia with the same chem style, they both are a better choice.

None
