As there a no decent left backs in the EPL, I decided to pull Robertson IF as a red card out of my WL rewards.
I used his gold card before that and he was just brilliant, no cons. So I figured the inform wouldn´t be bad either.
He is by far the best left back I have used in Fifa 19. I use Anchor on him so the pace goes up and his strength gets pushed a little.
No attacker I have faced so far was a threat to him, his pace is just fine, strength feels a lot stronger than it says on the card and his interceptions and tackles are amazing. He wins you nearly every duell against any player (if you know how to tackle) AND and at the same time is ominipresent in my offense contributing nice crosses, deadly passes and a good option for quick tiki-taka around the box.
I dont think I need to talk about his shooting as you sould have other players to score.
Great tackles and interceptions
Passing long and short
He seems to be everywhere
Price for some
I was lucky enough to pack his red card a couple of weeks ago. I didn't use him for a long time but I had to change idea of building my squad and put as many untradeables cards as possible to place coins into midfield/attack. First impressions are okay but after 150 matches i have to switch him because of some big cons that irritate me too often. I like this player in real life for his style of play even as Man United fan but that doesn't matter, let's go to his presence in FIFA.
I'm using anchor on him to boost stats that he lacks in formation 4321/4231(2), 4312. He is good while.going forward , his crossing is really good so he will be alright for someone playing with offensive fullbacks. His pace is just okay he can catch most of attackers and tackle successfully, but that's not enough. He literally lacks heading/ physical abilities. It costs me too many simple goals when opponent like to cross or have strong physical players in attack. Another problem for me is his short/long passing especially with weaker foot, even simple passes are inaccurate too often for me. Shooting also could be better but he is LB so this is not as important as previous points.
Hee is too expensive right now, because he is only playable LB In premier league ( maybe Mendy too ). I played with Telles and Sandro this year and both are better in everything when it comes about defender role.
Defending ( on ground)
Strenght ( sometimes)
All of these force me to change something in LB position unfortunately.
When i packed this guy in my silver 2 rewards i was actually happy, However,after 100s of games with this card i have come to realise that he is a completely incompetent defender !!! His general understanding of the game is extremely poor, but if you lucky he might be able to use his pace to prevent his horrendous mistakes. He cannot play a simple pass most of the time, or even receive a simple pass because his touch is so poor. If the ball comes to him in the air, you may aswell run out of the way with him, his jumping is shambolic. One of the few good things about him is his crossing but that is utterly useless because nobody attacks with full backs. I have since dropped this card for UCL live Telles and it is only then that i realised how bad he really was !
