let me just start off by saying that 1 month ago i bought this card as an "investment" cuz man united where going to the next stage was basically risk-free, but then when I sold my Eriksen to get sbc flashback Sturridge i had to drop him in since i had no cam and boy did I not regret it, the finesse shots he takes on are unreal, the attacking plays and runs he makes are amazing...... another reason y i wanted to write this review was because i opened his card on futbin and i didnt find any reviews on such an amazing card + i forgot to mention that he even has more goals and assists than my striker so ya i guess that gives u a background of how amazing he is.
this card is probably about 190k by now, but i just want to say that if u really know how to use this card hes going to be UNREAL
his first of all thinking of cons for Lingard it was hard getting them, but being completely honest the strength of this card could be better, his strength does let him down in a lot of his attacking runs
overall this card is amazing and I definitely recommend him to any of you guyz
After using Lingard last year and enjoying his card, I started this year by buying his normal gold card again as a fairly cheap option for a starter squad. However, having tried him at both CAM and CM, I settled on using him as a CM due to his ability to bomb forward into attack from midfield, but also get back quickly because of his high/high work rates. Although his defensive stats may not look the best on paper, they a certainly enough for me, regularly getting back into good defensive positions, making interceptions and breaking up attacks. His tackling isn't amazing but it definitely does the job. As I gained more coins, I upgraded his card, first to his normal CL card and then later to this live card. When this card came out I knew I had to get it asap and bought it while the price was still low, costing me around 85k. I knew this would work out a steal in the long term with United likely to progress in the CL and his card due for an upgrade. His standard gold card was already a decent cheap option. His CL card a little better still. This live card very good and since the upgrade to 86, very very good. If you're looking for a proper box to box cm who can score goals and provide assists, this card won't serve you wrong. His work rates mean he is all over the pitch, a proper work horse. His high stamina also means he can last all game. Because I originally used his first card as a CAM before changing to CM, I applied a deadeye chemistry to him. Since moving him to CM, I've stuck with deadeye chemistry purely because I know it works well and means he gets into good attacking positions and scores a lot of goals. Even after upgrading his card, I again applied a deadeye chemistry. He may play better with a different chemistry if you want to improve certain other stats for your play style, but for me I know that it works so no reason to change it. Other than his work rates, his best attributes are attacking positioning and shooting. He constantly pops up in the right place, running into space around the edge of the box, or in the box itself. His finesse shots from outside the box are amazing. If he gets a little bit of space to shoot around the edge of the box, it's a goal. Even powerful non finesse long shots are good, running on to the ball and smashing it in the top corner. Finishing in the box is also good and he gets the odd poached goal here and there. Passing is good too providing plenty of assists. I've played almost 200 games with this version and scored over 50 goals which I think is a good return for a CM. He's also provided over 60 assists, so all in all averages better than either a goal or an assist every other game. Some background as to the level of player I am - I play both offline and online, but he performs equally well in both. Offline, I only play squad battles on legendary mode. Online I play weekend league getting between gold 1 and silver 1 depending on how many games I have time to play. If I have time to play all 30 games I average around gold 2. As for division rivals, I'm division 5 and am close to being promoted but haven't yet due to rarely playing that mode.
Maybe strength and tackling, but they're enough for me. Doesn't win a lot of aerial duels.
Picked this lingard up for 150k and use him as cm alongside reus. I put a deadeye chem on him and he is incredible. He has brilliant finesse shots and he can shoot from either side as he as the outside of the foot finesse shot trait. I can't even notice the 3 star weak foot and he is always in a great position for attacking as well as making some great interceptions. As well as this he has 94 stamina so he won't stop running even after 120 minutes. I have played 20 games with him now an he has 31 goals and 38 assists. Also, his price will definitely rise before Manchester United's next round game so he should also be a good investment.
Finesse (Long shots)
Not much to put here, possibly can get shoved off the ball occasionally
