Patrick van Aanholt - 81 - FUTmas SBC
5.0
A true review
By ZackkFairr, 23-12-2018

Lots of people have complained about this card. Honestly speaking this is by far the best LB I have used. I have used lots of LB's I enjoyed and got on with. But this card feels special.

Pace, Agility + Balance - As a LB his pace is fantastic. The addition of his fairly good balance and agility make him fantastic off and on the ball.

Defending - Tacking and interceptions are fantastic on this card. Love it.

Stamina - High Stamina on this makes him last into Extra-Time

Dribbling and Passing - I have my LB and RB stay back while attacking. But in the event this card does go forward his passing is fantastic. Over the tops with this card are incredible SHOULD you find yourself in a spot to do it.

Jumping - This card wins a lot of headers. He isn't too short really but the jumping makes this fantastic. His heading accuracy is a bit poor but fortunately I haven't had issues so far.

Price - 40k this card was a bargain!

Strength - The balance and agility do help. But honestly this cards strength isn't great.

Composure - The one issue I had is this card was on the line. A shot was trickled towards him and i slid to block it. He slid past the ball and it rolled in. I suspect because of his poor composure he bottled it. Unfortunate. Though he nearly saved me with his pace. Most LB's wouldn't have come close.

Shooting - He got forward once and had a shot. not great composure and below average shooting stats it was tame. But he is a LB so I don't expect more.

Best LB in the Prem
By b0btheraper, 22-12-2018

He is like a fast Mendy. And with that 97 jumping he wins all the headers. I have used both Mendy and Robertsson and he is better than both of them.

Jumping ( when he jumps he is like 2 meters instead of 176)

defending ( he is amazing at slide tackles and just a little worse at standing tackle and he never give the opponents a pen he he stand tackle in the box)

dribbling ( he can take the ball past 2 opponents easily and then pass)

short passing ( his short to medium passes are amazing )

pace ( if a player go past him he will just catch up and get the ball)

Stamina ( he can easily run all game)


Shoting (but you rarely shoot with him)

Long passes sometimes

He's just a bit of a beast tbf. Previously using CL Mendy as left back but considering PVA is essentially half the price and far better, Mendy won't be getting back into the team. For 25k this card is basically stealing.

Pace - He feels electric both going forward and tracking back. His base pace stats are so high that they don't need to be boosted with a chem style, so you can focus on boosting his other stats.

Tackling - His standing tackle impressed me the most

Aggression - Very reminiscent of Kante/Torreira in the way he fights for the ball

Jumping - Rarely loses aerial duels with an incredible 97 jumping (without a chem boost)

Crossing - Not really much of an issue for me really...but the stat is quite low for a full back so you might want to consider boosting it with a chem style.

My favourite PL LB
By MGVEGH, 01-03-2019

I've tried many left-backs, and in the Premier League I'm with Van aanholt. One of his benefits is his strong link with Van Dijk, so it is very easy to link. I did this SBC for free, and it was worth it. I played 400+ games with him and he is a beast. For me, the best chem style for him are Sniper and Sentinel.


Pace: 10/10 - His 93 pace makes him one of the fastest players in Fifa 19. In defense, he catches most of forwards and wingers. And in attack, it is very difficult to stop him.


Shooting: 7/10 - He surprised me. His 70 finishing feels like 80. When he had to shoot he never missed. But longshots are not so good. So you can play him as a LM, and he will play well.


Passing: 8/10 - Enough for a left-back, he almost never fails a pass. Good short and long passes.


Dribbling: 9/10 - His 83 agility, 81 dribbling and 3*SM, make him a very good dribbler. He can pass through the defenders and get into the area easily.


Defending: 9/10 - Very good tackles. His heading accuracy is 66, but his headers are excellent!


Phisicality: 7/10 - He may have low strength, but his 97 jumping and 85 stamina make the difference. He's won some headers against Lukaku and Ronaldo in my team. If you make him run all the match, he will be tired by the 80th minute.
