Virgil van Dijk - 96 - Award Winner
You don't need any other defenders
By ET318, 29-04-2019

Need a wall for your team? This is your guy. When I first saw this card I wasn't sure if he would be a good choice right before TOTS but honestly, him next to my 93 cannavaro and I feel so comfortable in defense. honestly, he is 100% worth the price and will make your team so much better. Just like in real life, he will completely revitalize your defense.

Confidence on the ball - you can feel the 99 composure so easily. Every time he has the ball he feels comfortable on it. Having used players like 85 campbell, some CBs feel really awkward on the ball. not this guy. he feels great

Steps to block passes - you dont have to control him. If he can get to a loose ball he will win it every time.

Pace - not too fast to make defending hard but will catch any attacker

Defending - obviously he is good on paper but in game he is a game changing defender. Wins most tackles and his size makes him solid

Passing - he is so good at passing that he could be a seriously good CDM

Looks - theres nothing like a 96 rated purple van dijk to scare your opponents. If only he had a dynamic picture (maybe he will get one but RN doesnt have one)

Cost - at this point in the game right before TOTS he is fairly expensive for an untradeable but pack value can negate some of that. However, he is worth the cost but isnt very accessible

Thats honestly the only problem. He is such a game changer

By far the best cb in the game, he wins every Ariel ball. He makes every tackle and has a medium medium work rate and therefore he wont push up too far. He's very strong and that shows on his card with his 92 strength. He very rarely gets pushed over and people will always have to play around him.He is very expensive but I think he is worth the 111k that I payed for him. visit my channel "KLN STUDIOS" f...

The serial killer

I mean, where should i start this? This man with shadow is just the best cb ever (i play him in 250k prem squad with potm hazard and lucas in). I had 150k and i were thinking that should i go for vvd or walker, and i went for vvd, and oh boy, this guy is an absolute rock as cb, he's way better than umtiti for example. This man just has it all, even his timed finesses go in if he sometimes decides to get more attacking. Also...

Incredible at the back & front

Now, you may think "It's not worth the money" or "It's untradable so useless if/when he gets a higher IF" etc, but I'm not bothered about putting money into untradable cards if I want it and let me tell you I CERTAINLY don't regret putting the money into this card.I've used VVD's Regular Gold, 86 IF & 87 IF and they were all very solid in defence, with a few mistakes here and there which can be expecte...
