Thomas Delaney - 82 - IF
5.0
Best CDM in the Bundesliga
By KFCManager227, 15-12-2018

Delaney is easily the best CDM in the Bundesliga. He's also well-rounded enough to play as a box-to-box midfielder. He makes great defensive plays, and surprisingly makes even better offensive plays. He's incredibly aggressive on corner kicks and will always be in the right position to either steal a goal from the intended target or tap one in off a pass or rebound. Guilavogui served me well for 123 games, but this man has replaced him for good. I bought him on release for 35k (15k loss thus far) and have no regrets. In conclusion, if you need a great CDM to link up with Reus and friends, this is the one.

  1. 4 star weak foot
  2. Decent shooting; he is capable of hitting a shot from deep occasionally, but I recommend not letting him take shots unless you're playing him at CM with a chem style such as deadeye
  3. Good enough passing at the CDM position
  4. Decent composure, reactions, and overall dribbling
  5. Great defensive presence
  6. Near-perfect physicality
  7. Despite being a few inches shorter than what I like my CDMs to be, his height is never a noticeable disadvantage
  8. High attacking work rate causes him to be hyper-aggressive and active during corner kicks
  1. Would be overpowered with more pace on his base stats (sentinel chem style used for best stat boost at CDM), but his current pace is not detrimental
  2. Sometimes is pushed a bit up the field due to high attacking work rate, but recovers position pretty quickly

Delaney - The Danish Bundesliga beast

First of all I have to say, that Dortmund is the Club I support. I love him in real life and got excited when he got added to the Bundesliga SBC. I already had 8/18 SBCs because I wanted to do Gnabry but I´m glad that I waited and finished Delaney. This Guy has it all (with Shadow). He is pretty fast. He is playing as a CDM so he does not need to be that fast. His defending stats are tramendous. In-Game he intercepts so ma...

78 Long shots is Blasphemy!

The value for money this card presents is insane. He is truly the best CM I have used for under 100k and he currently goes for under 25k...... WHAT!!! Better than Goretzka, Witsel, and Scream Forsburg! This guy wins EVERY header, intercepts EVERY pass, and even score worldies! With links to Reus, Erickson, Pulisic and Wass, he is the missing link to a lot of creative super-teams! I can tell you right now he is usable in wee...

The Bundesliga-Gullit

I was super excited when the Bundesliga-SBC of Delany was released by EA this February. I immediatly did it to get this beauty of a box-to-box player. And i am not dissappointed at allHis pace easily keeps up with most players in midfield,he even was able to chase players like Coman or Futma-Bruma. Shooting is the only attribute which doesnt satisfy me at all. It surely can be all my fault, since i ...
