This fateful night on 10/11/2018, the EASPORTS Gods blessed me with this beauty, and honestly I could not believe my luck.
First things first, he is absolutely incredible; and EA did him justice, regardless of his rating. I will never need to upgrade to his prime, as this card is already in 6 days the 2nd best card that I have ever used on any fifa. I have used every major player for the past 4 seasons, and only the SBC Ronaldinho is a better card that is this. That being said; it has only been six days. In the long run, I am quite sure, this will be the best player ever, and is by far the most lethal scoring card I have used. He was not super easy to get down with at first. I didn't score in my first 3 games with him. Once the first one went in, and I figured out his angles; he was nigh unstoppable. I have only played rivals, in division 5 and division 4.
In his first 50 games, he scored 100 and had 10 assists; and I haven't even needed to get crazy with skills. I had at least 10 rage quits, where he probably would have done it in 40-42 games; which is unreal. His feeling is unlike anything that I have ever used. He is as agile and quick as Messi; while as tall and stiff-like like Bergkamp. Ultimately he is the perfect balance of player for my play style. He will never get sold.
Lest get to it...
Hunter Chem Style
Pace: Unreal, the best knock-on in the box, hands down.
Dribbling: As swift and sweet as you could ever imagine. 5 star skills makes him rivaled only by Dinho
Shot: 5 star weak foot; finishes better than his 89 on his card, I promise.
Def: High/Low, nothing more to say
Pass: adequate enough to make runs off of form big tall strikers.
Physical: Stronger than Messi, but certainly weaker than Dinho, but usually you can't get close to him.
Rating: Arguably the best ever
literally everything else, not listed in the cons
strength, aerial ability, shot power
Johan Cruyff was a player I wish I was old enough to watch when he was playing the beautiful game. Watching videos and hearing stories about him was very intriguing to me. It makes me pleased watching players like Ronaldo and Messi. Anyways the baby Cruyff is a beast, he is a cheat code literally. Scoring goals for fun, amazing passing. ridiculous pace, 5* combo, silky dribbling make him unbelievably fun.
Games 10 - Goals 12 - Assists 10
Played in 4312 CAM role.
Cost me: 2mil
Pace(9/10): He is very very fast and that is clearly obvious with 92 pace. Not many players can keep up with him, he rinses player for pace constantly which is a huge benefit to the card.
Dribbling(10/10) His ball control is mint, every first touch glued to his feet so defenders find it hard to intercept the ball from him. Dribbling is super smooth and silky. Easy to beat players with just his pace and insane dribbling. Having the 5* skill moves is a huge plus to this card also. He is incredibly fun to dribble with like Neymar with his height makes it so menacing.
Shooting(10/10) Unbelievable how good he is at shooting from crazy angles and situations. He smashes them in regardless of the average shot power, finesse shots are broken on him too surprise surprise. Scored me an unbelievable volley too making him super fun to try crazy and risky shots. Finishing inside and outside the box is consistent. He makes amazing runs also which make him getting goals so much easier thanks to his H/L work rates.
Passing(11/10) Surprisingly my favourite area of his game his passing is the best I have used by far in this game. Every pass reaches the player, his through balls are insane creating so many chances for my team. I have used Messi and Cruyff passing is superior to put it into perspective how good this guy is at passing.
Defending(N/A) His amazing work rates come at a cost in terms of defending. He never tracks back but it is not a problem as I do not use Cruyff to defend. When he did make a tackle he was okay due to his height. He wins a fair share of headers too.
Physical(6.5/10) Not his strongest stat but its not bad. His stamina of 79 is not great but it is not bad either. He last until the 80th minute for me in games which is decent. His work rates help with him not burning up as much stamina also. He is not the strongest but not the weakest, feels stronger then 66 strength bare in mind.
To conclude he is worth the 2mil price tag one of the most fun players I have every used period. I have only played 10 games with him and cannot wait for many more games with him. He is an end game, top tier icon. I would recommend him 10000000%
First i have the question to buy or not to buy Johan Cruyff because of his stamina, The 91 version have 81 and this one 79.
At the beginning i tried the 91 version who cost 550k more than this, but then i sold him to get this one
and desailly 88 to play at CB, and it feels just the same, just as good as the 91 but for 550k less
First of all, his Pace, he's rapid, amazing acceleration mixed with his agiity and ball control you get an absolutely monster in terms of pace,
not Mbappe, but very very fast, especially after a skill move
His Shooting, O M G , his shooting is soooo incredible, with left, with right, ooh i feel that 5star weak foot, finishing amaazing, positioning very very good,
Long shots and volleys ooooh daaaamn hee is sooo OP, just make a tornado and get the volley with right or left doesnt matter and you wil 80% of the times the goal
Passing, very very good passer, i got him with master to boost a little bit more this stat, but he pass the ball very very good in short and long distance, perfect passing for a CAM
Dribbling, amazing ball control, amazing agility, 5 star skill moves, what can i say, hes the god of dribbling, dont feel weak at all, because of his acceleration, and agility just make a skill
or simply pass threw defenders moving the left stick
Phisycal: nothing very remarkable, the High - Low work rates makes him not get too tired, and he can play the 90th minutes very well, but you must to give him a fitness card every 2-3 games, but apart of that he doesnt feel weak at all, not ibra or lukaku but very good to turn after been holding the ball
- PACE , very very very good for a CAM
- SHOOTING, OMG HIS SHOOTING
- Passing, like messi with 5 star weak foot and skills
- Dribbling, also, like messi with 5 star weak foot and skills, omg that skills, especially THE TORNADO + VOLLEY COMBO
- You will enjooy this card a lot
Maybe the stamina, if you like those players who get to the 90th with half stamina bar
Being a huge Ajax fan, I've been waiting for a long time for Cruyff finally getting an icon card in Fifa. As you can imagine I couldn't be happier when I found out he finally got it this year. I knew he would be expensive, so I've been saving my coins al year te get him. Last week my dream finally became reality when I bought him, and I can't regret it less buying him. He is definitely the best card I ever used in Fifa! His finesse shots are amazing. His dribbling is due to his agility also crazy good. He turns so fast it's sometimes even hard to follow for me ;) The only con I noticed was his low stamina. I used him as a cam in 41212(2) and he was tired pretty quick. Since he got tired so quick I changed him to the striker position so that wouldn't be too much of a problem. I need to say that even when he was low in stamina, he still made amazing runs tho. Because of all that, his stamina isn't too much of a problem for me. Another thing that is amazing about this card, is that even tho he's kinda weak, he rarely loses the ball. His balance doesn't feel at all like 78, and his composure is also great. His pace is a great pro as well, his acceleration is unlike anything I've seen in Fifa this year. Another thing I would like to mention is his passing. Usually I'm more of the short quick passing what isn't a problem at all with Cruyff. However, I also like to give passes through the defense of my opponent. And I've noticed that Cruyff sometime has a very inaccurate through ball. It's not something that happens very often, but I do would like to mention it. I think I've said all the relevant stuff now, since defending is not why you would buy this card (high/low workrates and 40 defending).
Last thing I would like to say is that his stats for me (63 goals and 24 assists in 44 games) was mostly from playing weekend league, and a little bit div 3.
- Pace: amazing acceleration
- Dribbling: turns crazy fast due to his high agility
- Shooting: great finesse shots
- 5 star skills, 5 star weak foot
- Composure: won't lose the ball easy
- Stamina: pretty low for a cam, not to much of an issue as striker
- Defending (not relevant in my eyes)
- Passing: sometimes a little bit inaccurate
When I packed cruyff in my base icon pack, I didn't realised how lucky I was. I was really happy, but i wanted gullit or pele. Now that I have used him for more than 400 games, I can tell that he is the best CAM in the game and I have tested a lot of CAM (91 Hamsik, 90 Perisic, 89 Mata...). Seriously, he can do everything, he scores finesse shots, powerful shots, headers, give good assists, dribble, even his defence isn't that bad. I have recently done a middle icon pack where i packed 87 Crespo and these two together are just insane.
After packing him I wanted to see how he was in real life, because I didn't had the chance to see him as a player, and he's exactly the same in the game, everything that he does is perfect, if you miss an action, it will never be his fault. He can play as a striker, winger, CAM or even CM. He kept a positive ratio until I made him play as a right wing, where he made more assists and was less present, being more present as an attacking midfielder, or as a striker.
So the pros are :
- Coiled shots
- Offensive placement
- Dribbles (especially croquetas)
And the cons are (even if they are few)
