Joshua King - 82 - IF
5.0
THE KING
By ThanksPaulo, 13-10-2018

What a player. Was sceptical about bringing him into my squad at first (had Vardy who wasn't really performing so needed a change) but wow did he prove his worth. I bought King for 40K just before this weeks FUT Champs and so far he hasn't let me down. He is incredibly clinical in front of goal with 22 goals in 23 games and 8 assists while playing as a ST in a 4321 with Martial and POTM Lucas next to him. He honestly feels the fastest out of them all and surprisingly can body off a lot of defenders (if they can catch him). Considering he is only 40k, definitely an EPL ST option for those looking to find a fast, clinical player without spending to big. Great option to move away from Gabriel Jesus, Vardy e.t.c.

-Shooting: His most astounding ability is how he is so clinical from inside the box. Whether its one touch finishes, volleys or finesses he almost always tucks them in past the keeper. Ridiculously clinical.

-Passing: Surprisingly, he lays some very juicy passes to Martial and Lucas and can hold his own when passing to midfielders. Although his passing isn't 'Pirloess', its very good for a striker.

-Strength: He regularly can hold up play against most CB's without too much hassle.

-Heading: (Although corners are OP) He's scored multiple headers from corners and crosses. Not reliable to win headers from goal kicks though.



-Grasping at straws here but struggles to cross if he ventures out wide (instructions to stay central should fix this)

-Doesn't have the best stamina. Games that go into extra time in FUT Champs sometimes result in him lacking energy needed to continue to make runs in behind.

Really good value for money

Last weekend league i played really good, but this weekend league started off really bad. I played with Mandzukic (IF) at Striker, but he wasn't doing anything for me anymore, he couldn't hold the ball or give a decent pass, so i dediced to try out IF Joshua King, and he completely changed my way of playing. He's relatively strong imo, has 4* skills which is a bonus for a skiller and he has decent passing. He's a game chang...

King truly the king

One of the best solo strikers in the prem imo, he is almost a complete forward when having marksman on him, he is way better than vardy if you ask me

Joshua King the Norwegian Beast

I have never seen a card quite like this one. I first used his base card when I made my 10k premier league squad to start and ever since then he has been my main man playing striker up front. For some reason he always wins those 50/50 challenges that defenders make against him and in-game his passing is much better than the stats say. I have tried Zaha, Lacazette, Aubameyang and Lukaku but none play quite like this beast fr...
