When i saw him getting his future star card, i decided to buy him instantly. first i thought it wouldn't be that great as he had 3* skillmoves.
I played him in a 4-2-3-1 formation as him being the ST with Mbappe, Neymar and Mahrez behind him in the CAM positions.
What can i say? I think he makes the way of playing with a 3* skillmoves player easier. He is totally worth the money.
His agility makes him a very difficult player to defend. With his strength he can't be pushed off the ball soon and with his 5* weak foot it makes it way more easier to score as he can turn in all directions.
Only negative thing of him is his 3 star skillmoves. But with winter upgrades around the corner, his skillmoves could be upgraded
5* weak foot
Hits the post often
I was a little bit skeptical about this hard. It looked really like an overpriced card of crazily hyped player. I admit, in real life Mason Greenwood is a promising young talent, but we all know that it doesn't mean, that he will be same guy in FIFA game. That's why when it came out I didn't buy him for 1.1kk. I also didn't buy him when he was 1.4kkm, but after it went back to lower price I gave him a shot replacing my awesome Drogba 91, and that's to whom I will compare the Devil's madlad.
Oh boy... That was a good shot. Let me tell you why.
First things first. I am playing 5-2-1-2 and Greenwood works nicely as ST alongside Neymar (93). I used Marksman chemistry style on him. Behind them is Moments Bernardo Silva. What's more I tend to play possession game (usually it's more than 55% for my team). That's why Greenwood is an awesome striker in my taste. His 5* weak foot is a nice upgrade compared to Drogba's 4*. What's more Greenwood has much better dribbling stats in terms of Agility, Balance and Dribbling. He still feels clunky, but at least I don't need any chem style to fix that, which is a huge, huge plus. Why? With Marksman his Strenght goes up to 91, which is quite close to base Drogba's. He is not easily pushed away from ball, but he is also not pushing other people aside like Drogba, but that's fine. What's more due to no problems with Dribbling section his shooting feels much better than Drogba's. Sadly his Pace is also lower, so it's even more important than ever to have someone fast by his side and a good CAM to control the midfield
"The biggest advantage over Drogba's 91 is Finesse Shot trait. You can't imagine how many perfect opportunities my Drogba missed, because he was no able to score a nice finesse shot with Engine chem style. With Greenwood? Pffft... easy. What's he can really pass. With Drogba it was hard"
What's more with his finishing, shot power and positioning it's really easy to score goals inside the box. Headers are also nice, but nothing fancy. I understand, that lot of people will be pushed away by his "clunkiness", but if you don't care about "meta" alternatives, then this Devil's Madlad is your way to go.
An awesome player to have in formations with 2 strikers. He can be used as clinical striker, which provided with a good pass scores easily from anywhere inside or outside penalty area. In simple words - smaller, but more agile Drogba's son.
- Finesse shot trait
- 5* weak foot
- VVD and Varane will abuse him
So I had to get a striker in my 4-2-3-1 setup to replace my Mbappe. I looked at a bunch of strikers like Ben Yedder, Ronaldo and Mane. Then I found Greenwood, he didn't really have any stats that was out of the roof but he looked like a beast anyways so I bought him. He scored a lot of goals and made a lot of assists, his goals to game ratio was a strong 0.95. But there was just something off with him I don't know what it was he scored the goals but when he didn't score he was kinda invincible in the game. He scored almost every game but it still felt like he did nothing. Let's start to talk about his stats. He has the best shooting I have seen in this game, bangs it in from everywhere. He never missed the goal or hit the post. He scored some amazing headers I have never scored headers before in competitive game modes like rival and fut champs. He is also 6'2" (187 cm?) so he has a great height advantage over many players. His dribbling stats kinda lie, he doesn't feel like 95 agility and 83 balance, he feels a bit clunky probably because of his height. His strength doesn't feel like 86 he gets easily pushed off the ball. I didn't really feel anything wrong or good about his passing it was just plain normal. He is pretty fast not Mbappe fast but he can still beat a defender in a sprint. Overall he is a really good player if you got the coins but I think I will just get Mbappe back who is more suitable for this year's meta. Oh almost forgot Greenwood has a 5* weak foot which is a key factor why he is so op!
5 Star Weak Foot
3 Star Skill Moves
First of all, greenwood is my favourite player in real life so I might be a bit biased. But this really is one of the best strikers I've ever used on fifa! He has 44 goals in 19 games for me, those stats may be a bit inflated because I'm playing in div 8 (dropped from div 6 while doing challenges).
Anyways he is a huge upgrade to my 91 Rashford, he wasn't bad at all but would occasionly miss some absolute sitters. Mason on the other hand scores EVERYTHING! When it comes to finishing, he's really got it all, 5* weak foot, outside foot shot and finesse shot traits. Slap a marksman on him and he will have 97 overall shooting, 91 strenght, 97 jumping and 98 heading so he will win aerial duels against defenders quiete a lot.
Altough I really like this card, there are definitely some downsides, mid/mid workrates and 88 pace doesn't really fit the "meta" as he rarely makes good runs in behind unless you manually make him. You could use a chem style to boost his pace but I tried and didn't really feel any different. That isn't really a problem for me though because I have more of a possesion playstyle. So for me the biggest letdwon would be 3* skill moves.
Passing on this card is just average, the ball pretty much goes where it's supposed to, nothinng special.
3* skill moves
I got it at a party bag.
He plays me the ST position in formation 4231 (2). I've played with him for about 5 games but I've already seen how good he is. I score at least 2 goals in a match. The best player I used
although i also have toty trent alexander arnold. I recommend it to everyone because it is a really brutal ST.
5* Weak Foot
3* Skill Moves
FUT Future Stars Greenwood was a terrible investment. To begin with, I am a Manchester United fan, so when I saw the card come out, I was excited to use him. I eventually saved up and bought the card and realised it was a huge mistake. At first, he was alright as he had more goals than he had games played for 50 or so matches, but then his games played surpassed his goals scored. I put a hunter on him, so his pace was fine, he was getting in behind well, but the problem was his shooting. I played him left striker in a 41212 narrow next to flashback Wayne Rooney and he was terrible. To give you some context on how good I am, I am a div 4/5 player and consistently finish gold 2, and this guy wasn't helping. Even though he had 5-star weak foot, his right foot was dysfunctional and his left foot was erratic. He couldn't do anything on his right and a 'good' match for him was one where he shot as his stats said he would. He was never an exceptional player for me. I'm just glad I made 10k off him when I sold him for 800k after buying him or 750k. Since, I've sold him and bought prime Raul who is a million times better, for roughly the same price, and if you're planning on getting this Greenwood, I recommend that you don't and get prime Raul instead. Also, I've rated his stamina 5 stars because I always sub off my strikers and CAM around the 70th minute, so stamina for a striker doesn't really matter to me.
His pace was never a problem, he could get in behind easily
His left foot could finish well sometimes
His positioning in the box was always decent for a cutback
He was decent in the air
Dysfunctional right foot
I was lucky enough to pack this legend, and i thought of immediately selling him since his ingame stats hadnt pleased me. It looked like he was extinct, so instead of waiting for the range price to fluctuate, i decided to use him. His weak foot is probably the biggest factor into why he is 1.4million coins. But even with the 5 star rating, i could never really see myself buying him for a price that high due to his height (6"2). Sure he scores 8/10 shots taken inside of the box, but being 6"2 in a game based around midgets makes him feel like a stick. I used him along side ben yedder in a 442 (otw) who seems more agile and has an overall higher speed. Of course with the price of this man, you expect him to be a beast. But despite that i would still pay 600k max for him because there are simply other alternatives like scream aguero or even potm vardy.
Overall - Do NOT buy this card right now. Wait for his price to descend or buy him now if you are really desperate.
Agility (does NOT feel like 95)
Better alternatives (scream aguero in particular)
