Last week I did his SBC, I was so excited to play with him, his card looks amazing, and also the fact that I could link him with many French players...
The plan was to play him as CDM in a 4-2-3-1 (2) squad.
1ST Experience - GUARDIAN) First game I became totally dissapointed! He couldn`t win not a single tackling!! Was always late! And attacking, he was too slow!! (I was using Guardian chemestry style!)
So, the 2nd and 3rd game I tried again, but again, totally bullshit. Felt so much worse than Matuidi or even Bakayoko!
2ND Exp - BACKBONE) I decided to change the chemestry style, maybe??
So I used now Backbone, and again more 3-4 games, and I was feeling like if he couldn`t run enough to catch the oponnent! And also, couldn`t run enough to create a new play!
I was already feeling very bad for spending over 900k with his SBC... But then I asked myself: "If I feel like he is not fast enough, why don`t I give him some PACE??"
3RD Exp - SHADOW) And so I did, just used a SHADOW chemestry style and **TCHAAARÃÃM**!
THERE WAS THE BEAST!!!
THE INCREDIBLE CDM!!
Now he is everywhere in the field, winning many balls, scoring goals everywhere!! YES, HE SCORES TOO MUCH FOR A CDM!! And also giving nice assists!
+ Can do amazing chases, and win!
+ Scores many goals for a CDM! Nice longshots+power shots!
+ Is an incredible box-to-box player, the man is everywhere!
+ He`s tall, so he never miss a head dispute!
+ He`s a freekicker MASTER! Scored in the first attempt!
+ COME ON, His blond cocktail looks just AMAZING in the game! *LMAO*
-- Need to use the right chemestry style (give the man some PACE!! The man deserves it! **SHADOW**)
He is insanely good, great box to box player. You can use him at cm and cdm, he is strong and he can keep the ball using his strength. He is tall and can win headers. His long shots are insane. Almost every time i shoot with him, i get a corner or a rebound goal. He can also score. He is also french, so it is easy to link him up with french players.
No cons for Petit.
3* skill and weakfoot if you perfer 4 star skill
I did Petit straight away when he came out putting in the prime Rui Costa and boy was it worth it. This guy has played at the CDM in role in every single team i have used this year and i love him. He still beasts it even against Gullit Vieira, TOTS teams and everyone. With a record of 90 goals and 107 assists in 829 games all from CDM and mostly in weekend league, i have no complaints for this guy.
- Long Shots
- Long Passing
- Only one i can think of is aerial battles as he often loses out to other players such as bergkamp whereas my milinkovic savic would always win those battles. Other than that this guy is perfect
Like the title says, Petit is a beast ( With Shadow), He seems so fast in game with Shadow on him, he will always be in the right place to intercept the ball, along with his ability to bully other players and just get the ball back, he is really a GREAT passer for a CDM (90 short, 84 Long), he just doesn't score a lot of goals for me since he plays CDM in a 4-3-3(2) and i set him to not go forward since i only play weekened league BUTTTTT if you need to send him forward ( Sometimes i put my TOTY Bonnuci at CDM and slide petit to a CM) he will just bang in long shots, His Finishing is decent but could be better i've missed a couple of easy 1on1 with him but anyways he is a CDM. If you need a legend CDM he is the man!
- Incredible interceptions (with Shadow)
- Seems way faster then 77 speed ( with shadow lol)
- Long shots are amazing
- Wins almost every header
- Great passer
- Maybe Finishing but like i said, he is a CDM
I want to start out by saying I haven't used 90 Gullit or prime or 88 Vieira but i have used their baby versions. These cards are all around the same value but the 90 Petit is by far the best CM I've used, I linked the squad I use him in which is a 41212 narrow I switch in game at times to 442. He is def better as a CM than a CDM because his W/R in my opinion but only used him in a 1 CDM formation he probably isn't bad in a formation with 2 CDMs. He has also helped me win a couple Div. 1 titles and get my best finish in weekend league 32-8 :)
- He is also 6' ft tall so he can win headers
The main problem I had was his finishing but I didn't get him for that but his left foot is pretty decent especially his Long shots. If you want the extra finishing slap a hunter and you will be good to go. I use Shadow with him and he is incredible def would recommend shadow if you get him.
