Incredible at the back & front
By Jaaye, 19-01-2019

Now, you may think "It's not worth the money" or "It's untradable so useless if/when he gets a higher IF" etc, but I'm not bothered about putting money into untradable cards if I want it and let me tell you I CERTAINLY don't regret putting the money into this card.


I've used VVD's Regular Gold, 86 IF & 87 IF and they were all very solid in defence, with a few mistakes here and there which can be expected. This POTM VVD is truly exceptional at the back because not only is he ridiculously strong in a tackle, he's got the pace to catch pretty much anyone running towards goal. I've noticed his positioning is excellent and is very rarely caught out. I've mentioned his tackling is insane, this is because he has missed roughly 1 tackle per game I've used him whilst still completing on average 13 tackles per game.


Furthermore, not only is he good in defence, he has been relentless upfront during corners. Whilst using his previous cards, they would pop up with a header every now and then, but very rarely. This POTM VVD is currently averaging a goal every other game. If you get a corner and you have this guy in your team, you know you'll have a very high chance of it ending up in the net thanks to Virgil's forehead.


I've used a lot of defenders so far in FIFA 19, such as Ramos, Umtiti, Varane, Gold & IF Koulibaly & Prime Sol Campbell and none of them have matched up to this POTM card. Don't get me wrong, they haven't been awful, fairly good in fact, but this card honestly just blows them out the water with his reliability all over the pitch.

DEFENCE - Extremely solid, very rarely does he miss a tackle/caught out of position


STRENGTH - Ridiculously strong in a tackle and can push anyone off the ball


SPEED - Can catch pretty much anyone running towards his goal


CORNERS - Very good chance of him pulling off a bullet header to the top corner

UNTRADABLE - You can't sell him, but I honestly don't care giving the performances he does

Van Dijk - The tank
By rileyallan1, 30-01-2019

RIP to everyone who didn't do this card.


Van Dijk is a monster who will be getting a ratings refresh upgrade so prepare to be man handled by everyone who abuses this card. Used his regular card for almost 50 games and thought he was already the best non-icon CB behind Ramos. If this card gets upgraded to a 90 or 91 he will be prime icon level comfortably.

He completely tanks forwards off the ball in 50-50 challenges and runs away with the ball almost every time, feeling more like a midfielder with his dribbling and passing stats.


Maybe didn't score as many headers as some other Van Dijk users but I had flashback Zlatan for a while who was bagging the corners.


The only real issue for VVD is his med/med work rates but this can be solved by pairing him with a med/high or low/high CB alongside him. Had problems partnering him with Ramos due to his high attacking work rate leaving the our man Virgil exposed occasionally.


Also 400k for an untradeable CB was steep but completely worth it with some decent pack luck.

AMAZING Van Dijk
By Marquitillo, 05-03-2019

Hi, this is my first review i've ever done but after playing with this beast for 2 months i'm with the need of do that review, let's start!


VVD is one of the best CB in the game. That's exactly what a fool will say. Let me tell you that virgil van dijk is the f....ing best player of the game. Specially this POTM version is absolutely a f...ing monster.

I tried VVD rare gold card 6 months ago and i was surpised of his perfect performance. I was playing with my tipical 3-5-2 formation and i was about to sell the stupid game cause i was not able to win a single game but when i buyed his basic card i started to win games like "churros". Then i decided to buy his sif version (when it was 87 rated) and.... DAMN boy, he was a f....ing monster. Defending he was my leader and attacking... OH MAN... who the hell made that player? All corners were mine, I scored 15 goals in 120 matches and let me tell you that i've never been a corner maestro.


After this introduction, u will understand me if i say that when i saw this man POTM i've got a big erection (insted of he was 89). And believe....When this man became 92 rated my heart stopped. He is absolutely a machine... everyone fears VVD POTM. I've played against ronaldo, pele, maradona, messi, gullit.... None could beat him. He is a monster. He feels like a monster. And he knows that he is a monster.


Pace: 8/10 His 80 pace it's okay and if you use him with anchor or shadow his pace increase so much but in fact if you are using this man without a chemistry card like that you won't notice the difference because he is fast enough to deal with all the strikers because of his strenght.


Shooting: 6/10. Well he is a CB what did you expected? insted of being CB his shooting is not as bad as manolas so is respectful enough


Passing: 8/10. Not the biggest stat but i have to say thats he is good with the ball and rarely he will loss the ball making a bad decision while passing the ball.


Dribbling: 6/10. Really do i have to speak about this? He is a defender so the only thing u must care about is to defend. Insted of this, his ball controll is pretty awesome.


Defense: 10/10. Oh boy, here we go. The best trait that this card can offer. Simply a god. If you use anchor, near every stat of defense get an upgrade to 99. And trust me, you will not regret to put him an anchor.... my god, he destroys every single player who is triying to pass trough.... AMAZING


Physical: 10/10. Nothing to add. Him >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Jean-Claude Van Damme+Bruce Lee+Chuck Norris+The Rock+Jackie Chan

  1. Magnific pace
  2. Strong as Hercules
  3. More Solid in defense than Maldini
  4. Perfect Hair-cut
  5. He is a liverpool player
  1. He is not traddeable
  2. If u didn't do the SBC say good bye to this Monster
  3. Nothing at all
