Delaney is easily the best CDM in the Bundesliga. He's also well-rounded enough to play as a box-to-box midfielder. He makes great defensive plays, and surprisingly makes even better offensive plays. He's incredibly aggressive on corner kicks and will always be in the right position to either steal a goal from the intended target or tap one in off a pass or rebound. Guilavogui served me well for 123 games, but this man has replaced him for good. I bought him on release for 35k (15k loss thus far) and have no regrets. In conclusion, if you need a great CDM to link up with Reus and friends, this is the one.
- 4 star weak foot
- Decent shooting; he is capable of hitting a shot from deep occasionally, but I recommend not letting him take shots unless you're playing him at CM with a chem style such as deadeye
- Good enough passing at the CDM position
- Decent composure, reactions, and overall dribbling
- Great defensive presence
- Near-perfect physicality
- Despite being a few inches shorter than what I like my CDMs to be, his height is never a noticeable disadvantage
- High attacking work rate causes him to be hyper-aggressive and active during corner kicks
- Would be overpowered with more pace on his base stats (sentinel chem style used for best stat boost at CDM), but his current pace is not detrimental
- Sometimes is pushed a bit up the field due to high attacking work rate, but recovers position pretty quickly
The value for money this card presents is insane. He is truly the best CM I have used for under 100k and he currently goes for under 25k...... WHAT!!! Better than Goretzka, Witsel, and Scream Forsburg! This guy wins EVERY header, intercepts EVERY pass, and even score worldies! With links to Reus, Erickson, Pulisic and Wass, he is the missing link to a lot of creative super-teams! I can tell you right now he is usable in weekend league.
Long shots dip into the top bin.
86 Composure = NO MISTAKES
88 jumping at 6 feet
high-high work rates mean he is tired in extra time.
I´ve used him for 3 games now and im impressed. You get a really good player for around 30k. I like t compare him to fabinho. His defending and positioning feels really good and his strength is enough to bully everything in the midfield. The thing that was impressing me the most , was his shooting. I´ve taken 3 shots with him. Every shot was from outside the box with his WEAK FOOT !!! He scored 3 finesses like its nothing. He also has 94 Stamina which is amazing ! The only thing that wasnt that good was his crossing. But if you play him at left CDM or CM it should be fine ! Overall he is a really good card who has impressed me for his rating...the only player that comes into my mind in terms of price/beast who is better would be lacazette or martial.
You can link him very well with Flashback Götze, IF/POTM Reus or even POTM Sancho !
definitly buy or hold this card ! Give him a shot and he hopefully does not dissapoint you ^_^
