FUTBIN Player Review

Prime Moments ICON Larsson

The Prime Moments ICONs are upon us and just as expensive as you would expect.  The difference in FIFA 20 is of course that each and every ICON has received their prime moment boost, leaving a lot of options for improving your squad until the end of the game.  In the end, my first Prime Moments ICON review comes more from a forced necessity then genuine love for the player.  If you tuned in to the Winter Refresh Zlatan review you would have known this review was coming as I couldn’t find a better way to fit the big man into my squad.  While Larsson was not first on my list, I definitely checked him twice as he blazed his way throughout the Weekend League.  Larsson was deployed primarily as a CAM in the 4-2-3-1 and as a ST in the 4-4-2 with the HUNTER chemistry style doing the business.  Perhaps it is fitting that the HUNTER card is symbolized by a viper given the venom this lad injected into my opponents throughout the weekend.  Larsson was the fatal bite in the following squad:
 


 

Overall

Rating: 9.6/10
Pace Rating: 9.5/10
Dribbling Rating: 9/10
Shooting Rating: 9.8/10
Passing Rating: 8.5/10
Physical Rating: 9/10
Defending Rating: N/A

While I can see why some FUT Managers are opting for the ENGINE chemistry style I found the dribbling with Larsson to be more than adequate and was more impressed with the pace boost that HUNTER created.  Larsson was simply electric all weekend and came away with 31 goals for his trouble.  99 ACCELERATION, 99 SPRINT SPEED, 99 FINISHING, & 96 SHOT POWER all played as advertised; and even the 4 STAR WEAK FOOT felt like a perfect 5.  Larsson finishes everything and can create a lot of chances himself off of the dribble.  Larsson felt responsive and agile on the ball, and his dribbling was effective despite the 3 STAR SKILLS and even 85 BALANCE (which is still solid).  The ‘hidden boosts’ that some associate with ICONs seemed tangible in this card as he outperformed his statistics in every category.     
    

Linkability & Current Game Strength

Linkability Rating: 4.5/5
Current Game Strength Rating: 5/5

I might have gone a perfect 5/5 if Ibra had been more effective, but regardless it is obviously easy to get this card into any squad; he just simply does not offer a perfect link to many hybrid options.
So take everything that was wrong with Zlatan this weekend, turn it on its head, and you have the brilliance of Larsson.  My first impression was, “wow this card feels insane,” and that confidence goes a long way in each individual game and overall throughout the weekend.  Larsson always made me feel like I had a chance to win.  The amount of goals was the biggest talking point, but the way he scored them is worth mentioning.  He can outpace opponents, dance in the box, score with both feet, and has decent physicality as well… just an all-around goal scorer.  

Value/Coins & Good vs. Bad 

Value/Coins Rating: 4.5/5
Good vs Bad Rating: 5/5

Immediately I went for the 5/5 rating as you are paying a premium but getting a premium card in return.  But I just can’t shake the lingering feeling/knowledge that part of the premium price comes from the Prime Moments ICON status.  The dynamic images alone feel like they are worth 500k and that just puts Larsson in the slightly overpriced category for me.   

One look at the 20 game stats and you can have a solid idea the deficiencies with this card; a grand total of 3 assists.  I would say that there are three factors that contributed to (I believe) my lowest assist total for a review outside of a defender. Number one, Larsson was too busy scoring goals to be bothered with passing.  Number two, when Larsson did find his targets they did not finish their chances.  Finally, number three, and more likely the prime reason, the passing on this card was not the greatest.  Not to say the passing was terrible, it just wasn’t anywhere near the incredibly high standard of this card.  It was like driving a Ferrari but the taillight is burnt out … doesn’t change the performance overall, but you are disappointed you paid all that money without perfection.

Closing Words

Larsson is up there with the best strikers I have used this FIFA, like way up there and maybe even the best.  The problem with comparing reviews from the beginning of the game is, of course, the various patches we have experienced.  However, what I can say for certain is that Larsson definitely jives well with the current state of the game.  In slower gameplay, he still found ways to score, in faster gameplay he found ways to score, and yes even against drop back, one depth, overload ball side… he found ways to score.  Cheers for reading.

Strange Card
By ISTANBULS, 24-02-2020

In brief, he is very strange, both in performance and results and his way of play. He feels sometimes not a fun card to play with but he then scores 2 goals in a crucial WL game and in some games he does crazy dribblings and ball control movements and I confused him with my other forward 93 Henry since both are bald in pitch with similar appeareances in game.


If you want some one like Mbappe or Ronaldinho etc. dont buy him but instead of Klose, Shevchenko, Linekeer etc. (except Eusebio and similars of course) dont hesitate and buy him cause he scores like crazy and even more than my favorite player 93 Henry.


Now he is in 34 goals and 14 assists in 29 games all in WL.

Quick

Godly finishing

Unexpected shot power

Ball Control

Aggression like Stoichkov

Weak foot is reliable and dont know how I like to dribble with him despite 3 SM

Wish he has long yellow hair

Not crazy fun to play with like Henry or Ronaldinho, Gullit etc.

Hello


I got Larsson out of my untradeable Mega Pack, I was very happy to get him because I was thinking about buying him. He plays alone up top and he scores almost out of all the chances. I use a Maestro on him and it works amazing. Definitely the best ST I have used in this game. Even though he is only 5'10" with that 94 Jumping and 97 Heading accuracy he get's a lot of headers. His positioning is always amazing, he stands at the perfect place all the time.

Pace

Shooting

Dribbling

Heading

Strength (Can be pushed away the ball sometimes)

Skill moves (If you don't do a lot of skills then it is not a problem for you, myself I don't do a lot of skills)
