Player Review

Fred - 82 - Normal
Great Player but Undeserving of the Hype
By zbol, 08-10-2018

Fred was and still is the player that every player wants. When it comes to BPL midfielders that are purchasable for a reasonable price, Fred is the main contender. One of the most used players on the game, Fred must be outstanding on the pitch. After hearing the hoards of people raving about the card, it was only right that I used him myself, to understand where everyone was coming from. Quite honestly, I wasn't impressed nor unimpressed. For me, Fred was an average player. Don't get me wrong, Fred has absolutely insane stats and is apart of the 'Junior Gullit Club'. However, there is something about Fred that just did not click for me. There is no doubt in my mind that Fred is a good player, but for me at least, Fred just wasn't anything special. Fred has some outstanding statistics, such as his 82 dribbling, 79 pace and high/high work rates. His dribbling was beautiful and he felt majestic on the ball, but he could only do so much. His pace combined with his dribbling was actually surprisingly good, but his lack of height, strength, positioning and tackles really just put the card to bed for me. Fred could only do so much, and that so much happened to be him running with the ball for a few second only to get pushed over by Kondogbia. Fred really has an outstanding card, but I can't tell whether he doesn't suit my playstyle, doesn't suit my team or just doesn't work for me at all. Fred was average at best, nothing special and certainly not deserving of the hype. A great card but not good enough to operate the midfield.

Paired up with Matic is a beast

Fred does in this game what Kante is said to do in real life under Sarri, and that's basically run around the pitch like a juggernaut getting the ball back when you lose it. He's the storm where Matic is the calm in my team and he can finish too if he finds himself in the box.

Gold kante with much better attaking capabilities

Nice card, i used him in 4-3-1-2 as left CM and he was perfect. good in defensive positioning which helps cut off the opponent's passes. and he is amazing also in building the Counter Attack, with 4 skills moves and his dribbling states and great passing also. He always got chances to score goals because the HIGH Att. WR and never missed 1*1 situation on almost 20 rivals matches....
