Player Review

Jan Oblak - 90 - Normal
Oblak the Octopus
By Reusinho, 05-10-2018

After last year's disaster with goalkeepers, I was hesitant in spending 40K on a GK during the EA Early Access period. But I told myself if I get a good keeper now, I wont have to worry about buying another keeper for until a major TOTW player is released. So after 90+ games with Oblak in net with a back four of Filipe Luis, Carvajal, Bartra, and Lenglet, I've come to the conclusion that Oblak is definitely worth the price you pay and I would highly recommend him if you are thinking of spending big on a keeper. He easily saves just about any shot that you would expect your keeper to make, and is no stranger to pulling off the miracle save and he can definitely keep you in the game if you are getting battered by shots.

  • Handling- rarely spills the ball or punches the ball into dangerous places
  • Positioning- never really concedes longshots whether it's a finesse or power unless the player has like 90+ shot power on a finesse, then no one is saving that
  • Reflexes- he will get a touch on every shot that comes at him, rather good at stopping a low placed shot in a 1-on-1 situation, and as I said, he consistently makes match winning saves
  • Diving- he reaches across the goal if necessary and gets practically any shot out of his way
  • Speed- his low speed can cause you trouble if you need him to come out for a loose ball in the box
  • Although his positioning is great for power shots and finesse shots, he will concede about 8/10 headers that are on target. For some reason he doesn't like to jump for headers to collect the ball and just stands there as the header slowly passes over his head and into the net. He has been out-jumped twice and conceded headers because he won't jump for a cross sometimes.
  • Kicking- it could be just me, but on goal kicks it's practically been a 50/50 chance he will pass to where I aim with the right power. You barely tap the lobbed pass and the ball will end up deep in the midfield rather than close in your your half.

90 Oblak

Thus far, my favorite goalkeeper that I have used. He's just extremely consistent unlike some of the other keepers I have tried out this year. A couple of times I have taken him out of my team to see if I could find someone better, but I keep coming back to him. I use GK basic on him, like I do with every decent keeper because it's common sense to boost as many stats to 99 as possible. Diving: His diving I...

Best keeper I've used

The 95 Oblak may be one of the best keepers in the game. He has insane reflexes at 95 which you can feel in game, makes some outstanding saves, so good at 1 on 1's and has got insane handling (97) which seems to be the most important stat for a goalie with also 86 reactions. His height at 6'2" is more than enough and a pretty standard keeper height. I use a shield chemistry style on him to get 99 kicking, increase speed and...

pretty solid

A few weeks ago i'v got him in my division rivals untradeable reward so I decided to give him a chance. Some games he played really well and did some great saves but sometimes he was sh** and saved nothing. overall i think he is pretty good and solid but surely he isn't worth over 100k, while you can get his gold rare card for 50kor 60k.
