WOW were do i start i was debating spending 1.2mill on a icon so early on in the game but eventually gave in and brought prime crespo and im so happy i did he is a machine in game just glides past players like they arnt there finesse/power shots from outside the box just go in great heading good pace good strength feels a lot stronger in game than his stats say his movement is also incredible he just finds himself so much space.I played him in a 41212/2 with aguero and he outshone him in every aspect .it was my first weekend league ever and i managed to hit gold 1 with 46 goals in 30 games from crespo he defiantly carried me and the team lol if you have the money try him out as i can only see him rising in price over the next few weeks as more people will use him.
I've tried this guy in 2 weekend leagues, he is an absoloute beast! Most of the time i've played in a 4231 in game, most of the time i packed him on CAM after 60-70 minutes. But also there, he was amazing. He scored for me headers, volleys, tap ins, left foot, right foot - just everything. I can't even say something bad about him. The price for me is absoloutely okay. He is a PRIME icon, and you can't give me another striker with those stats in the same price range.
- The mix of his pace and strenght
- To this mix comes his dribbling, he is very agile.
- Finishing (inside the box and around 20-25 metres, everything is in)
- Heading accuracy
- i can't say something about some cons, because there aren't cons.
first sorry about the bad grammar english isn't my first language
i got maldini 92 in a pack ( yes im so lucky ) then a sold him for 1.600 M becuase im good with van dijk and inform baily
then i sold aguero and got this beast, he changed my attack alote, insane shoting with both legs, a beast in heading wins the most if crossed well
positioning is great just pass don't even think he's offside, the combnation of strength and agillity gives you a game changer striker
Heading the power header treat
Agility and Dribbling
WF*4 and SM*4
strength and pace with hawk
maybe passing, but you won't need to pass just shoot
When FIFA released the Crespo SBC I looked at the price and thought that's relatively cheap for such a stat heavy striker - saw his in game value was around 200-300 higher than the sbc value. I luckily did the Prime Roy Keane SBC last month and never really use him any more so I already had an icon to put into this SBC without spending any money, additionally to this I already had a load of high rated useless players in my club. In total value the SBC cost me 387k. For a Prime Icon...PRIME. Madness.
This card is an absolute savage, every game you know you can win the game even if you get hammered because all it takes is one chance from Crespo.
- I use him in a 4222 at Right Striker along side Flashback Javier Hernandez, IF Rashford Right CAM, SIF Arnautovic at Left CAM.
- Chem Style - HAWK, this is for the pace boost to tip him into the 90's and also for that little physical boost to push his strength and jumping up a little bit more.
- I was a bit hesitant at first because I had fairly disappointing results with Keane but this card is absolutely unreal. He's got a ridiculous shot and finish on him. With the Hawk Chem he ends up with 99 positioning, 99 finishing, 97 shot power, 82 long shots (This stat is broken, i will get to that shortly), 97 volleys, 99 pens.
- 99 finishing 82 long shots. So the 82 long shots. Nah it's not 82, it's broken, MASSIVELY. He scores from EEEEEEVERYWHERE. He's got a pin point precise finesse shot, his laced shots feel like they're always going in, they stay down and do not bend at all (I find that long shots this year are awful, they fly off in every direction) so if you hit it right it's a goal every time. His close range finishing is next level, i think in 21 games i've missed maybe 3 or 4 shots total. the 21 games 40 goals tally speaks for itself, he does exactly what it says on the tin, along with his traits and specialties it is self explanatory - Finesse Shot, Power Header, Target Forward, Aerial Threat, Dribbler, Acrobat, Clinical Finisher, Complete Forward, Poacher.
- His pace surprised me, with it being 89 i was a bit skeptical but he's absolutely rapid - boosted to 94 Accel and 94 Sprint speed in game mixed with his 90 agility, absolutely monstrous pace - he's at top speed the second he starts running and he breaks away so quickly and because of the boost to 99 positioning, he makes amazing runs through back lines at speed but somehow manages to stay onside every time.
- Dribbling, he's got 90 agility 89 dribbling and 92 composure, what more do you need.
- Defending, he's a bit rubbish defensively being completely honest, he isn't too good for winning the ball back from a defender BUT, he's quick enough to nip in front of a defender and steal a pass or two so it's not all bad. with his work rates being medium low he doesn't come back so it's okay in that sense.
- Passing - Meh, he's okay but he's not a playmaker, he's a finisher. 83 vision with 72 short passing is more than enough to assist team mates if they find a better position so can't really complain!
- Physical - with the Hawk Chem style he gets a boost to his jumping (goes to 98), strength (goes to 83) and his aggression which jumps to a measly 60. the Jumping goes a long way as it combines with his 92 heading accuracy, front post corners are a goal guaranteed every time. He out leaps most defenders by a long way. he has 80 Stamina which some people would be put off by but this is absolutely not an issue for him, he's fine up until the final whistle every game.
For the value i paid for it, this card is 100% worth every penny. Being honest i'd say even at 1.3 mil it's 100% worth it, he's far and away the best striker I've used this year over in form Aubameyang and Salah etc. 10/10.
Jumping & Heading
well i did his sbc last week, and i very happy about that. if you search for a false 9 striker, or for a game maker, he isn't your adress, but if you need someone to score goals with him, so he is exactly who you should buy. crespo doesnt miss any chance to score a goal, and it doesnt metter if he shoot from 10 yards, 15 yards, or even 20. all of his shots gett in, his low driven shots are unstoppable!. he hasn't the best positioning or pefect movement, but when you need to score the goal, he will be there, anytime, anyplace. my favorite attribute of crespo is his composure, i just love to see his indifference when he do a crazy goal or amazing action, he will never be nervless,something that helps him to score goals without effort. this is one of his special attributes who makes him to be so crazy and funny to be played with
his composure, his finishing, and in genral anything in the attacking part on the pitch
i dont sure if it infirmity, but before to buy him you need to know that he isn't the player to hold the ball with, or to start the attack frome the middle of the pitch. he just know to score goals and he do it perfectly!
