    The beast affordable CAM
    By conorshan21, 16-11-2018

    Mertens is quite possibly the best affordable CAM in the game. I was lucky enough to pack him in my Gold 3 rewards. Whether he is coming off the bench or starting he is a joy to play with. His long shots are insane and usually go in and feels very agile on the ball. Although quite weak and slight, he often intercepts the ball when the opposition is playing out from the back. His passing is also superb

    • Long Shots
    • Finishing in general
    • Dribbling
    • Passing
    • Easily muscled off the ball
    • Stamina, runs out around 75th minute

    what a player!
    By funifasaid, 23-11-2018

    Before buying him, I really have doubts cos he's bloody expensive for a serie a player with an in form card. but he's the only quality player for me to green link with my hamsik. but once I play with him, he feels so smooth! he felt like an assassin, creeping out of nowhere to make the run and scores the goal. he either scores a hat trick or don't score any in a game. he shines when your opponent gives spaces and he will punish them but when there's no spaces and things get physical, that's his flaw. forget about his stats on why he shouldn't play as a striker. I played him as a striker with mbappe as my other striker. deadly duo!

    • his runs are amazingg! always perfect
    • when things get busy in the box, he's always there to make the goal if the ball falls near him
    • he always finishes his shot but there's always the odd time he misses when under pressure
    • his first touch is very good making him easy to initiate dribbles
    • never miss his short passes, a key element of what I expect from my striker
    • finesse shot as usual, OP when there's a chance, even better now with the latest patch of defenders stretching out lesser for blocks
    • surprisingly, agile enough to press opponents to make them fumble the ball, decent tackling in that aspect
    • NEVER make him run straight to a defender, always away and keep the passes going. he will tumble down like a kid but surprisingly, strong enough considering his strength of 43 to hold stationary balls off players
    • he will never win a header beside Ramos. but I still score some headers off him when there's no defender closing in.

    The Best Investment I've Made This Year
    By masenko23, 15-12-2018

    Hi everyone. I have played FUT since 2012, but never felt compelled enough to write a review about a player...and trust me, I've had some good cards over the years. This will be a long review, but I promise it will be worth the read.


    I came across Mertens purely by chance. I was aware of his status as a meta player, and actually got his base loan card for the hell of it...I never thought I would play him as at the time, I was running a PL team and my main aim was to obtain Hazard...until I brought Mertens on as a sub in a game I was losing 2-0 in the 72nd minute. He had an immediate impact, scoring 2 and assisting 1. This really turned my head, and as I continued to dominate matches with him in the CF position, I started to consider him seriously. CAM? CF? ST? No problem. He has the ability to create something from nothing in any area of the pitch he is placed.

    Fast forward, I decided to rebuild my whole team around him and ended up buying his base card, which I then upgraded to his IF. After 92 goals and 67 assists in 83 games, I can confidently say he is the most important player in my team. His dribbling is Messi-esque, his pace and finishing is reminiscent of CR7 with the right chem card, his positioning, passing and vision feels unrivalled. I would say not to be put off by his low strength and physical ratings, as he always seems to retain the ball under a challenge at pace. Shooting outside the box? No problem. Dropping deep to carry the ball up-field? Got you covered. I play him in a 4231 as a CAM next to Dybala and SMS/Gomez and behind IF Icardi and no matter what the situation, he seems to find a way to assist or score goals from almost impossible situations. Inside the box, it is nearly impossible to miss given the chance. On the edge of the box, a finesse shot will more often than not end up with the ball caressing the top corner of the net. An 88 rated card that feels like 92+, hook it to my veins.
