Roy Keane - 90 - Icon
4.5
Don't sleep on this card!
By FUTninja2019, 10-01-2019

I never thought of picking up this card until I saw the SBC. I planned on taking the packs and using him for a few weeks while I waited for an end game icon SBC to come out. Long story short, he's an absolute unit at CDM and a starter in my WL squad next to Ballack (Gold 1/2, usually play 20ish games). Check his CDM rating with backbone... 95! and he feels like it. High composure, nearly maxed out defense, high strength , excellent passing. IG he feels fluid and speed is mostly not an issue unless you pull him nto attack. You could play him box to box but the weak foot/skills/shot power could let you down whithout the riight chem style. I've used kante, rijkard, blanc, Pogba IF and I prefer this card. I play him in a 41212 narrow and 4321 in a $10M coing squad. I would only trade him for Vierra or a TOTY/TOTS.

  1. 95 rated CDM with backbone!
  2. Hiigh composure, strength,S/L passing and vision, dribbling, aggression, marking
  3. M/H workrates mixed with high aggression and high stamina
  4. Feels fluid IG
  5. Excellent value
  1. Shorter than I typically like for a CDM (5'11) but I find he makes up for it with other attributes like W/R, jumping, and aggression.
  2. Box to box 3 star week foot and 2 star skills depending on your play style can be limiting. I use LT/RT and fake shots to create space and he holds very well. Not issue as CDM.
  3. Good long shooting on strong foot but shot power needs to be boosted with a chem style to be more effective against better WL players that move keeper. I use as holding CDM and keep him deep so only end up takiing a few shots here and there.

Irish beast

This guy is an absolute machine!The way he always takes the right position. The handling. The turning. The physics. It's like EA somehow managed to create his no bullshit attitude on field. Luckily the temper has been nerfed. I love having this guy on the team.

Best CDM so far? Prime Keane review

I completed the sbc for pretty cheap and was extremely happy with it. This card was part of my team that got 24 wins in fut champs and he was a big part of that. He appears everywhere defensively and is always in the right place as a cdm, sitting back and making occasional bursts forward. His stamina is so good and he can last all game easily, he can outstrength strong forwards and has amazing defensive ability. What i foun...

CDM superstar

I was playing 4-2-3-1 drop back with Kondogbia and Seedorf with Clarence helping the attack but I got rid of drop back and moved to balanced. This meant that I needed more defensive qualities from the other CDM and Seedorf was causing me issues as he was getting too far forward and missing tackles so I opted for Keane to come in and sort the defensive side out. I would highly recommend him if you are after a CDM a...
