Well, I really just needed a striker to replace Joelinton, as he didn't play well for me anymore and I was complete done with him. When I saw his sbc, I thought, just like everyone did 'bad ig's'. No. No. Just don't. I got him just because I was done with Joelinton, I thought he couldn't be worse. I spent about 70k on his sbc, because I got a lot of untradeables I don't use. In my first game, against a friend, he scored 2 goals. Both from 30 meters at least. The first one was just a long shot. When I got the ball with him to score a second goal, I flicked the ball behind me and he just volleyed it in, straight into the upper right corner, from at least 30 meters distance. That was just the beginning. This guy can score from anywhere as soon as you are at the opponent's half. He scored around 15 goals for me and 12 of them where from outside the box. At first: his pace. It doesn't feel like 93. At all. I used the sniper chemistry style and it feels like he has around 75 pace. It's useable, but not as much as you would think. Maybe it's because of his agility. His shooting: well, just press the shooting button. 86 shooting is a straight up lie, even with sniper. U REALLY, I mean REALLY feel the 99 shot power. This guy doesn't shoot, he fires a rocket. From anywhere. Inside the box, outside the box, from every angle, he bangs them in. He has 3* weak foot, but he doesn't care much about that. He can score with his left foot perfectly fine. I screamed a lot to my TV, just because my man scored. Passing: it's good, not great, but useable. Dribbling: he dribbles OK, but his agility and balance aren't the best. He only has 3* skills, which doesn't help, but you really don't have to dribble because you can just shoot. Defence: This is also very useable. I love it when strikers just get the ball of defenders, even icons. He has 75 standing tackles and u feel that. You could even use him on CM, and it wouldn't be a problem. Don't mind his other defensive stats tho. Physical: Man is a beast. Nobody gets him of.
I have a bundesliga dominated team and have struggled all year to find the "perfect" striker for a reasonable price.. I've played with Lewandowski, Werner 1IF, Jovic 2IF, Joelington FFS and 88 Reus.. each have different qualities but I needed a striker to have it all.. pace, strength, heading and finishing.. there came Esswein!
Defending - if you want to defend from the front Esswein is the man! The amount of times I've managed to intercept the ball from the opposition with this guy is ridiculous!
Pace - without any boosts he is very fast and manages to get in behind the opposition with ease
Physicality - perfect combination of aggression, strength and jumping.. absolute beast upfront
Passing - 84 passing is very good for a striker especially if you're into quick one two's
Dribbling - His dribbling and reaction is phenomenal especially for a quite big striker but he lacks balance that could easily be sorted with a sniper chem style
More than a Striker - My strikers tend to have the most stamina every game so I prefer to put them at CAM and bring on a fresh striker and what a player Esswein is at CAM.. can hold up play.. pass the ball with ease and get into the box for headers!
3 star 3 star - Luckily for me I'm not into doing skill moves so this might cause a problem for anyone that prefers to do skill moves
Shooting - His shooting stats without any boosts are not great especially for this time of the year but this could easily be sorted with a sniper chem style making his finishing OP
I was very exciting about playing Esswein, because I'm a big VFB Stuttgart fan. Sadly there was by now just one playable Stuttgart player avaible (Pavard).
I got more and more excited as I saw his card stats. It was'nt thinking twice about completing the sbc, altough with 200k it is very expensive.
I thought that I will have a massive offensive with Werner and Esswein.
It didn't occured so.
Esswein's stats looked great. Ingame he got his struggles but first some good things about him:
Physis: This guy is a beast when it comes to tacklings
Heading: After every goalkick you can be sure that he will deliver the ball to a teammate.
Positioning: He is often unmarked, you always have an open man (hehe)
Finishing: in One on One with GK he always has the upper hand. Scores out of many positions.
Agility: The worse Attribute of him. With the ball on his feet he feels really slow and stubborn. For example: It feels like hours, that he need to just turn himself 180 degree. Although he has great strength, he is not able to hold off the ball to the defenders, because he's too slow too shield the ball in time.
Pace: With a pace stat of 93 I thought, he will destroy the defenders even more. "I thought". Ingame it feels like a 70 pace. Before you can Point him in the direction you want him to sprint he gets attacked by defenders. That might be as well a agility problem.
Passing: Real bad, didn't had one player who passes the ball that often to the Opponent.
