Player Review

Virgil van Dijk - 90 - SIF
4.5
The Power Of Meta Information
By ucnerd, 07-12-2018

To start, I am a Division 3 player. I often read these reviews and wonder if the information is true and valid for 'decent' players. I'm not the best FIFA player but not the worst however i have played FIFA for many years and have a good understanding most things FUT.


let's keep it simple, is he good? Well of course he is. He is an 87 rated defender who is 6'4 and has not only very high attributes in defending but his passing and dribbling game for a defender are great on the card. he is a EPL defender so naturally he is going to cost 3 x the value of similar players in different leagues (Godin IF for example)


In game he is much like his standard card, the difference is minimal IMO and i have used all of his cards. I do notice his workrates of M/M, this can be either a good or bad thing. At times he would randomly push up and try and win the ball which worked 60/40. The times it worked great but the times it didn't you have a nice gap for the opposing team. His defensive movement is ok but Sanchez is far Superior in terms of effective defensive contribution. (tackling and positioning)


there is no denying he is a great player in game but i can't help but think the combination of Meta info and general hype make people believe he is some kind of demon in defense. I have 2 teams and i find IF Godin with Anchor so much better overall.


So yea he is a great but for the price i'd say invest in a more solid CDM or CM personally as they can influence the game so much more in both attack and defense.

THE PERFECT CENTER BACK!!VIRGIL VAN DIJK!

By far the best cb in the game, he wins every Ariel ball. He makes every tackle and has a medium medium work rate and therefore he wont push up too far. He's very strong and that shows on his card with his 92 strength. He very rarely gets pushed over and people will always have to play around him.He is very expensive but I think he is worth the 111k that I payed for him. visit my channel "KLN STUDIOS" f...

The serial killer

I mean, where should i start this? This man with shadow is just the best cb ever (i play him in 250k prem squad with potm hazard and lucas in). I had 150k and i were thinking that should i go for vvd or walker, and i went for vvd, and oh boy, this guy is an absolute rock as cb, he's way better than umtiti for example. This man just has it all, even his timed finesses go in if he sometimes decides to get more attacking. Also...

You don't need any other defenders

Need a wall for your team? This is your guy. When I first saw this card I wasn't sure if he would be a good choice right before TOTS but honestly, him next to my 93 cannavaro and I feel so comfortable in defense. honestly, he is 100% worth the price and will make your team so much better. Just like in real life, he will completely revitalize your defense.
