i did this guy for just over 60k but he is worth well over 250k i have played him in both st and cam and he is mint in both in cam use the engine chem style and in st use sniper i play him in a 41212(2) with fb villa marco reus and iniesta he is like david villa but stronger and better in the airhis long shots and volleys are in my opinion the best in the game.
- long shots
- shot power
- balance/agility (can be fixed with sniper/engine)
- stamina (only in extra time)
So first of all I had to do Podolski because he was my childhood idol and after looking at this card i felt like that this guy can give me some fun back to Fifa 19.. And oh man he did not dissappoint me.. I am a Division 2 Player and in FUT Champs I allways get Gold 2. I use him with the Engine Chemistry Style because the pace goes up a bit, and his dribbling needed to improve..He play upfront with Werner SIF and now Kruse POTM as cam. He played now 12 Games and got me 10 Goals and 10 assists. And now into his stats..
He is not on that Mbappe or Werner Level in Speed but he feels faster than his 88.. Engine gives a nice boost on that and with his 92 strength he can push through everyone. His Stamina hasnt been an issue for mei think that is because of his workrates medium and low.
His agility is maybe his biggest and only con. Even though he feels more agile than his stats sometimes he is a bit clunky but you wont get to many technical errors in dribbling because his dribbling and ballcontrol stats are pretty decent.
Oh man I dont know where to Start.. 99 Shot Power with 90 Longshot which feels more like 99 is so OP. He bangs them in from everywhere. He also makes nice runs and his 87 finishing feels better with his allaround shoting stats.. incredibly. Right now I cant tell much about his right foot because that left hammer is the second version of Jesus in this game..
This is where he surprised me. He plays so many key passes through defenders or above them out on the wing its incredible. The Long passing gets with Engine to a 86 so dont be afraid of that. Also his freekicks are fire, he is more than just a longshot taker, he is also a monster in playmaking
i already said that 92 strenght is so good on him. I didnt scored a header with him but he often wins headers and his jumping feels better than just a 81.. His Stamina isnt a issue for me due to Workrates, maybe i would sub him off in extra time in a fut champs game but he wins you the matches before that so thats not the problem :D
Shooting (Use that Left Foot)
agility (use engine chem)
maybe his right foot because his left is so good
This card is amazing he is the best card that i have used this year.I've tried a lot of other players like my man Anderson Talisca(also i wrote a review about Talisca)and as I can say the were not the same.Podolski has better passing than talisca for my opinion and he is way better at shooting.But the bad thing that Podolski have is the stamina he gets very tired at the 75 minute.His agility and his balance tho is a problem
Better pace than he's 84 card that I have also tried
Long passing I think he should have had at least 84
3 weak foot
Agility and Balance
This player is good at any position, if you want to, you can put him at CB and he will do it incredible. I used him with Kruse POTM at CAM and werner SIF at left striker. This dude made it incredible, 148 goals in 143 matches. This guy in champs its absolutely game changer, you just need to shoot and it'll be inside the net.
Very good pace
Nice dribbling with Sniper at chem style
The only one that I felt is that stamina, but he has 80 that is not that bad.
As an Arsenal fan who loved Poldi, I had to do the Flashback SBC event though there weren't plans to fit him into my squad. It definitely took me a few games to get on with him but he saved me a couple times this past weekend league with his ridiculous shots. At this stage of the game, his pace, physicality, dribbling, etc. are not going to win you games but they're all good enough and can be surprisingly effective in some situations. The one place he excelled at was his left boot. Anytime I could get the ball on his left in the box or within 5 yards of it, his left rocket was leaving the ball in the back of the net or forcing the keeper to make an incredible save that led to a corner or rebound opportunity. His ~1 goal contribution per game are excellent considering I subbed him out at halftime in favor of FB Ibra or POTM Hazard in 75% of my games. He's not amazing but he came through in the clutch for me plenty of times, often enough I don't feel the need to replace him over some other areas of my squad.
- Shot power is through the roof
- Weak foot
- Nothing else was a true negative, more of a neutral
