TIF Yussuf Poulsen is a god among men. The 87 Danish colossus is quite simply one of the best all-round strikers in the game. Forget ‘meta’, forget ‘OP’. This man deals in absolutes. Cross to Poulsen = goal. Every time. Wanna stop your opponent scoring sweaty corner goals? Use Poulsen. Want to SCORE sweaty corners? Use Poulsen. Need pace & strength up front? Poulsen has more gas than my nan after eating a kilo of baked beans, and is stronger than a panzer tank. Obviously the 3* combo is not ideal; his left foot’s as good at kicking the ball as I am at deciphering hieroglyphics, and attempts to perform complex skills will likely result in him falling over. BUT give him a try, and I guarantee you’ll be blown away by the combination of pace, shooting, dribbling, strength and heading. I’m currently in div 1/2 and he is absolutely tearing it up in div rivals
Pace: With hunter, he’s so fast he’ll have time to score 5 headers per game and clean your windows before full time
Shooting: scores for fun
Jumping/heading: CBs are futile against this guy
Passing: surprisingly really good. Excellent at crossing too
3*/3* combo. Don’t use his left foot unless necessary. Neymar/Mahrez/Dembele users will struggle
The only other negative I can think of is that the sight of him scoring does get boring after a while. Having witnessed him get about 7 billion goals in the past few days, scoring now leaves me emotionless and cold
This card is absolutely insane. This man's positioning, strength, pace and heading is out of this world. He is very hard to get off the ball, and as soon he shoots it's almost certained to smash through the net. Everytime you put the ball to his head, he will beat every defender as his jumping is crazy. So do i recommend this card? Absolutely!! Probably one of the funniest and best strikers in the bundesliga this year.
- Stamina (lasts almost all game)
- Maybe penalties (you dont really notice it)
I am using Lukaku SIF 89 and Reus 88 as my 2 strikers, Reus used dropping into midfield and Lukaku for his heading ability and in the box presence. I was after a sub striker that could handle all different game demands. I came across Poulsen and his stats blew me away. 92 Head accuracy and 90 jumping for a 6'4 striker...88 combined pace...decent strength and just 100k, whats the catch?
Well, i still cant find one.
Even playing at a 5 chem as a striker with marksman (sub), he is just bagging goals for fun. His dribbling feels so much better than the card shows and overall his finishing is just crazy, he just scores. Heading is almost laughable, i mean when you have de bruyne with engine taking corners i just aim at him and like the guy is being lifted up like a dude in a line out (rugby) he just destroys the ball into the net.
Maybe this guy is hard to link, Denmark and Bunds maybe not the most sexy perhaps, but for the price if you are looking at a sub that you want to bring on every game and make a difference, then he is your man.
Heading (the best i've used)
Weak Foot (noticed when finishing at times)
Strength (against beefy defenders)
