Allan - 91 - TOTS
4.5
Midfield
By MikeDodd619, 11-05-2019

At 550k on PC at the time of writing this Allan represents one of the more marquee players of TOTS so far which impressively sees him boast high 80's in all of his stats bar shooting. Since selling RTTF Fabinho for a huge profit several months earlier I've felt a huge void in midfield which has left me vulnerable in many critical situations that have cost me games therefore when I saw Allan's TOTS card I instantly had to build a team that could fit him in.


In-game Allan is joy to control with his 4* skill moves and absurdly high balance and agility; he effortlessly switches direction allowing him to pull off passes in extremely tight positions. Now whilst his goal contributions haven't exactly set the world alight in my 20 games with him he has been instrumental at allowing me to assert midfield control in my weekend league games, for someone who is just 5'9" he has the physical presence of a god. From my experiences so far he plays like the love-child of TOTY Kante and Fred whilst he played at Shaktar.


However, at the current asking price of 550k I decided to sell him (I initially bought him at 430k which therefore saw me make a profit of around 100k after tax) as his price will only trend downwards over the coming days as more SBCs and cars come out. It is with that in mind that I do undoubtedly recommend him if:


a) You have plenty of spare coins such that the 100-200k you may lose when he drops in value will not bother you

b) You don't plan on selling him and have a complete team such that the cheaper price in the coming days wont affect you

Physicality

Stamina

Passing (easily one of the best passers of the ball I've used this year)

Positioning

Manoeuvrability

Heading (he is surprisingly very capable at winning aerial duels with the opponents attackers, he certainly has more presence in the air than I expected)

Shooting (if left unboosted it leaves a little to be desired for, however with a little boost he seems to unleash rockets)

3* weak foot (doesn't seem to affect his passing on his weak foot, however his left footed shots can be wild at times)

Brazilian Kante

Just a pleasure to play with. His dribbling and agility are top tier when it comes to CDMs in this game, which is a welcome change compared to many taller, clunky mids with similar strength. The definition of a box-to-box mid, this Brazilian beauty feels like he's everywhere on the pitch at once. You're crazy if you pick another Serie A sbc card.

The Refined Hound

I have his untradeable ucl card from the ucl edition choices, but it's been only a couple weeks since i was able to put him into a decent squad.i gave him powerhouse chem style to play him CDM (91 rated CDM here people!) in 433 (2). his instructions are 'stay back' and 'aggressive interceptions'.he has stamina for days, he interceps almost everything while he haunts every opponent he sees on the bal...

Super Sub

Honestly i fell in love with this man while i had a Serie A squad. He was a present from an untradeable pack and honestly he will remain with me until the end of time. I tend to sub him on at either the 70th or 85th minute depending. And either as a CM or a CDM. I love him.
