Right, I’m not here to cause controversy… But Buffon is terrible. It is unbelievable how poor he is compared to other goalkeepers. I have had the same situation over and over with Buffon letting the ball roll by him without an attempt to dive.

The main issue I have though is that the initial save is so good until he palms it straight into the path of another striker. This seems to happen too often and the defence is solid usually. Buffon is not a great choice, I much preferred Areola.

  1. Positioning... Thats about it
  1. Poor Reflexes
  2. Palms into attackers path everytime
  3. Handling
  4. Gets chipped too often

Great GK

I packed this card in a UCL upgrade SBC. He is a fantastic goalie. After 150 games with him, i feel like it is just the right time to write a review on the card. The chemistry style I use is Glove, it makes him play a lot better than the Basic one. Despite the big price difference, I feel like he is 100% worth the upgrade if you are thinking of buying him.

Disappointing treatment of Buffon in this game

It pains me to say this but Buffon is truly terrible this year. I don´t what it is about him but the amount of times that he let me down over the 40 games that I´ve used him is staggering. He makes so many rookie mistakes that other keepers like Lloris, Handanovic, Courtois would never true. It´s really hard to admit this but Buffons era in terms of FIfa is coming to an end. His reflexes are very poor he will often dive ...
