Player Review

De Gea - 97 - TOTY
Reflexes, Reflexes... Reflexes
By Sempihh, 08-02-2019

First of all, I will start by saying that I was playing De Gea on 4 chem, and I know I can get Ramos and play him on 7 chem, I am just saving up for him.

Now that's out of the way, let's get into the review.

Honestly, I never saw the point in spending 800k on a keeper. It was only when I packed him I thought I'd give him a go and when I did, I never looked back.

My go to this year was Courtois, his only downfall was long shots, but other than that, pretty solid.

In steps De Gea. Playing him on 4 chem, he is still miles better than Courtois.

His reflexes are a sight to behold. In and around the box they are godly, and that is only enhanced by his 75 speed. Bring him out and he usually gets to the ball faster than most strikers, or puts together some ridiculous acrobatic save that you know is making the opponent seethe with rage.

His kicking as well is impeccable, he is so good at spraying the ball around that I could only imagine how good he would be at spray washing a car.

His only downfall is the easy saves. Sometimes, you watch a header that is an easy save sometimes find the back of the net but this is a very rare occurrence but frustrating none the less.

I used him mostly in Champs, I am a Gold 1 level of Player so take this review as you will or with a pinch of salt.

Either way, if you have the coins buy this guy. Who doesn't want to try a 99 in-game player at some point in FIFA?

I tried Prime Yashin near the start of the game and it is disrespectful to even compare the two, they are two worlds apart.

Sit a solid CB paring in front of him and you have a defence with better security than Area 51.

De God (IF De Gea)

Absolute beast of a goalkeeper, when I packed him I went insane and i thought i was going to sell him immediately but after using him for 20 games im never going back. I've used the likes of Neuer, TOTGS Handanovic, Courtouis and Oblak and this De Gea absolutely destroys them. I am a fairly average player so I struggle in FUT Champs usually getting Silver 1. After Using De Gea for a lot of this WL i've gotten Gold 2. Plays ...

David De Gea Quintana Review

The best GK of Fifa 18 without any question and because EA decided to make him a bit more realistic in FIFA 19 people started to scream that he is useless. He doesn't catch crosses or corners they say and they complain about it, He doesn't do that IRL either so why do you complain about it? The card is spot on. His reflexes are unreal. His ability to stop long shots is there. He is catching most of the shots and he is the w...
