Player Review

Sócrates Vieira de Oliveira - 92 - Icon
Perfect Cam
By TwoHighGuysPlayFIFA, 11-03-2019

Hello everybody! And welcome to another player review!! We haven't done another review since CR7, but man, this guy deserves it.

He is so fucking good, we previously tried his 89 version and man, we fell in love with him. We knew we would do his prime sbc as soon as it came out and when we saw the optimus prime, We literally got a boner. As soon as the sbc dropped we did it (and became poor, but doesn't matter, the whole team is finished :D )

Since we got him, we played our last 10 games of futchampions, and played some rivals. We finally got div 1. We have been trying for months and finally been able to achieve it. So far, he's got 40 goals and 17 assists in 39 games ( ) This is where he plays in game . We put him an engine style to boost his pace, agility and balance, i think is the chemistry style that suits him better, and tbh, engine is one of the most underrated chemistry styles after marksman (put marksman in all your attacking players, thank me later)

Before I start with the stat by stat review, I'd like to say that, for a Cam position, he is close to optimus Gullit. Don't kill me yet, yes, I have just said that,but you gotta try him. Apart from the defense, they are so similar, and for a Cam roll, offensively, there is barely a noticeable difference.

He is fast.Super fast. It is one of these players that feels faster than you thought he would be, he is so tall that his 85 pace seems even more due to his height. When he starts running not many players are able to catch him, and with his strength and height will be difficult for the defender to get the ball 10/10

Shooting: I simply can't explain how good it is, We have tried so many good strikers but this guy's shooting is above anything we've tried this year. He will score anything you try. His finishing is super clinical and his power longshots will find the back of the net 9/10 times, and the 1/10 the gk will do an insane save.Add to that that he does not have a weaker foot. Nothing else to add. Perfect. 20/10

Dribbling: Super good. Compared to his 89 he feels WAY more agile and his ball control and dribbling is perfect. You wont notice lack of balance or anything, I was really surprised on how agile he feels in game, his 89 was good but nothing even close to this card. With his height and strength it is so difficult to take the ball away from him. 10/10

Passing: Godly. Anything I could tell you won't be enough. We were really impressed with his 89 passing, but this is even better. His long passes are orgasmic, he doesn't miss a pass. And his freekicks, we love taking freekicks with the outside foot and this guy has replaced stoichkov as our freekick taker (we score tons of fks with him, but socrates has scored 3/3 so far) 20/10

Physical: This is what makes this card so good. His height, added to infinite stamina, plus his strength makes him the perfect Cam. His heading is fantastic, wins most of headers and ahs scored a few corner kick goals. 10/10

Hope this review helped you, if you reconsidering adding him into your team do it, you won’t regret it. His SBC tbh is not that overpriced, I recommend doing him now as market has gone to sh*** and high rated players are damn cheap, won't last long!

Look for more reviews on FUTBIN, we'll review only players who we consider top tier. If you see a player is reviewed by us ( TwoHighGuysPlayFIFA) You know the player is good ;)

The Doctor

So after seeing some good things about this card on twitter I decided to try his loan card and what can I say, this man is a machine. I changed my formation just because of him to 4231 and I don't regret it. I play him as a CAM behind Ibra and he is fantastic. His shooting is amazing with both feet due to the 5* WF, his passing is always on point, he is tall and wins headers, a fantastic dribbler and has 95 stamina s...

After many long hours of trading, weekend league and saving up coins from div rivals, I decided to use my hard earned coins on his SBC. At first I was terrified he would not meet my expectations, but he exceeded them by far. His SBC is very expensive, but IMO he is worth it. In hindsight I would gladly pay around 3 mill for this guy. Sócrates is a complete game changer. He will win you games and makes great runs in behind ...

The Philosopher

Socrates is a Greek Brazilian god amongst mere mortals. He is everything Pogba aspires to become. The only thing EA could do to "balance" this card was give it 4 star skill moves and mediocre jumping; otherwise, he would be unstoppable. With an engine chem style, Socrates will majestically glide past defenders and ruin their whole careers with only a few swift movements. He's a huge, physical presence who can dribble...
