Jonathan Tah - 86 - UEL LIVE
The Great Wall of Tah
By danitikitaka, 29-11-2018

Well let me first comment that this card has been my trusted solid defender for the last couple of weeks at first I was trying to find a good defensive partner for him, but honestly he's so reliable for me I would have him run the defence alone haha. I've tried him next to stones, laporte, naldo, t silva, boateng, hummels, and he's been the better of the pair. My style of play is quite low tempo and like to dribble twist and turn and drag out my opponent as much as possible as everyone just sits back and defends with the AI. Unfortunately I am exposed to the counter attack all the time ( rather play beautiful beautiful football and lose a match then be like everyone else). Even though sometimes my opponent manages to cut through me this guys makes the most wonderful recoveries, he's 6'4 so his presence is there, wins almost every header and has scored a couple from corners. If you like to drag out your defenders and defend manually he's your guy. When I am up against possession based teams this guy does a good job in bullying the frontmen as my opponent knows it will be a touch match for him/her. Those who like to run down the wing and cross are met with the great wall of TAH. Although his agility says its really slow he actually does not feel that clunky and have played out with from defence a couple of times plus that 79 short passing means he will almost always give a decent pass to a team mate. Slap on the anchor chem style and gives him a little bump in pace to make those recoveries and becomes a total monster with that 99 aggression. Stamina says 64 but he manages to last the whole game ( I play pressure on bad touch and quite narrow and deep defensively). Overall hes probably my favourite bundesliga defender, solid, reliable and a game saver in those crucial moments.

Why Wouldn't You Get Him?

This card is by no means going to change everything for your Bundesliga team, but it is really solid. I have tried many defenders in the BL: Hummels is great, maybe not worth the price, though, Boateng is overrated, Inform Stark is underwhelming but good, and Akanji and Diallo's CL cards are both not bad. Finally, I got fed up with the BL right backs and started using a hybrid with Sule and Kimpembe as my centerbacks. Once ...

Unexpectedly good

An 83 rated German Bundelsiga defender that costs only 2k. I used him for 10 matches and the result was amazing. He is strong with really good height and tackling skill. He can bully anyone off the ball. An enjoyable card to own and play with. OFC he is not the best defender in the game but his 83 rating is not reflecting what he can do as a defender in this game.

Boateng Mk.2

In game you cannot distinguish between this guy and boateng, lazy avatar creation for sure. But also from performance.
