Don't know how to start, this guy was a trigger to sell all my tradeable players... I had a Seria A and Prem hybrid, with Telles(UCL live)-Virgil -Skriniar(87 rated)- Cancelo IF. I bought him last friday and was so excited to play a WL... but in fact it was a first WL which I end up not playing all matches, and quit playing after 13th game (7 wins, 6 losses). Before him I had Miranda - he provided the same results(his value 10-12k).
Now back to player review:
Everyone was talking about the in-game experience of VVD and bla bla bla. My in-game experience: his value is 100k coins max, so damn overpriced. He was clumsy and slow, and in my possession plays he was just outraced by opponent strikers on counter attacks - 90% of occasions. Skriniar is simply better in everything, compared to this guy, the only thing is his league.
Overall I would say that he`s not worth 400K. It`s really tough as we don`t have any other options in BPL as CB(only Sanchez- hard to chem him).
Strength: he is quite strong guy, and bullied some strikers.
Headers: shown some strong presence on corners both defensive and attacking.
Stamina: can play 120 mins
Passing: passing felt ok, some times made good crosses to wingers
Pace: for second IF he got only +2 upgrade compared to his normal card. Felt too slow and clumsy.
Positioning: most of the times he was loosing his position and trying to make unsuccessful interceptions and tackles, even if I didn`t control him.
Agility: it takes ages for him to turn around.
