WOW! I did not expect this. (88)
By Futbinsteve, 18-03-2019

Sooo i needed a RM that would link to Lala and of course my first thought was Mbappe, buuttt i only had 120k. So i saw this guy, and his stats, and decided to get him instead for about 100k. Best decision of my fifa career. This guy is better than Mbappe having used them both. First off his positioning is what i really noticed, i played him as a left cam in a 4-2-3-1 and he was constantly finding space down the wing and being able to whip the ball in, or dribble round and score. His shooting is also top class, he's scored volleys from outside the box, finesse shots and his near post shots are really OP. His passing is good for quick build up play and i haven't noticed his low long passing being an issue. His dribbling stands out, i mean 99 agility can't get any better. His physicality is a bit hit and miss, his jumping is good and he is 6"0 so he can be a target for headers but his heading accuracy is low and he has missed some headers. He isn't very strong, but strong enough for a winger in my opinion. Overall, this card is ridiculously underpriced and i strongly recomend you get him in your team to save some coins and some class. He will probably surprise you as much as he surprised me, and my opponents!

Pepe vs Mbappe

Pepe VS MbappeWhen first using Pepe, I expected him to have insane agility due to his 99 stat on this card however he did not feel fully up to this standard but he did feel agile and quick to an extent but what is very surprising is his ability to keep the ball despite being shoulder to shoulder with a LB. He seems to keep the ball a lot in these situations, similar to Mbappe, despite his stre...

WHAT A PLAYER!

As the headliners promo was released I decided that I wanted this man after previously using his in-forms by doing this I found potentially the filthiest card this ever graced the earth. For only 100k this player has to be the biggest steal so far in the game I have played him at LAM and also at RAM his crosses are dirty and his weak foot feels like a 4 to 5 star which gave me more confidence to start shooting on sight with...

Buy this lad!

I bought Nicolas Pepe because his stats looked vey good, and I needed goals from the wide positions, First game he scored a hattrick! One goal with the left, on with the right, and one with his head. He is 183cm which is pretty tall for a winger, and his 99 jumping makes him unstoppable in the air. By far my favorite player in Fifa 19 so far.
