FUTBIN Player Review

FUT Birthday Griezmann

Day 263 of Lockdown: The arrival of the much anticipated FUT Birthday promo did not disappoint in the end, with a nice assortment of useable options with increases to 5 STAR SKILLS or WEAK FOOT available.  Full disclosure; I actually had a completely different squad to start this Weekend League, including a different player to review in Marcus Rashford… it lasted 3 matches.  The reason being that I just wasn’t feeling the review or the squad and I want to enjoy my weekend, especially during these challenging times.  In the end I am so incredibly happy that I made the switch and I honestly enjoyed my Weekend League experience (minus a few laggy matches), and spoiler alert!... Griezmann is amazing! 32 goals, 8 assists, in 21 matches.  Wait… why 21 when all of my reviews are normally 20?  Honestly, I was enjoying this card so much I completely forgot I was reviewing him for a second and lost track of how many matches I had played.  In the end, I think that is the highest compliment I can pay this card, but let’s look at why, Griezmann was the breath of fresh air in the following squad:
 

Overall

Rating: 9.7/10
Pace Rating: 9.6/10
Dribbling Rating: 9.8/10
Shooting Rating: 9.8/10
Passing Rating: 9.5/10
Physical Rating: 8.8/10
Defending Rating: N/A

If I was pressed for time and needed to give a quick summary of this cards qualities I would spend my time talking about two key factors.  One, the 5 STAR WEAK FOOT that was granted with the promo is no joke.  In talking to a friend about Griezmann I mentioned that I was disappointed that I did not put enough trust in Griezmann’s right foot earlier in the review.  I honestly feel his goal total could have been even higher, but once I figured out just how lethal Griezmann was on both feet it was a game-changer.  The velocity of his shots is the key and the ball is in the back of the net before the keeper can even react.  Two, this card has some of the best left stick dribbling I have used in FIFA 20.  There are not many who can compare and the responsiveness and turning were immaculate.  You can create space in the smallest of areas and he executes all turns and drag backs with a touch of class that isn’t found in every player.  He creates a lot of his own chances, which is vital at this stage in the game cycle.
    

Linkability 

Linkability Rating: 4/5

The Barcelona links are some of my favorites in FIFA 20 due to both the quality and the wide arrange of price tags for managers to get players into their squad.  I went with the higher end of IF Messi and TOTY De Jong (I forgot just how good he was as well), but there are quite a few lower budget options if Griezmann breaks the bank.  Next, the French links are just as endless and have the same level of flexibility in positions, league, and price.  Finally, you can use La Liga options to get this weapon into your squad… and there are a lot of them.

End Game Strength

End Game Strength Rating: 6/5

That’s right, 6/5.  I have already decided I am going to try everything to keep my right-sided triangle of Barcelona players in my review this coming weekend.  While Messi and De Jong are class options and definitely added to the quality in my squad, I would be lying if I didn’t say I 100% just want to play more matches with this card.  Some of the turns and goals he executed this weekend left me stunned and re-watching replays to see, “just how did he pull that off?”  I can only hope that the same happens for you, and for myself again next weekend.

Value/Coins & Good vs. Bad 

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

At 1.5 million Griezmann might require a large percentage of many FUT Managers coins.  While I am not going to say he can carry a depleted squad on his own, I will say that when he is on the ball you will feel confident that good things are about to happen.  He is worth every coin in my books.

I really don’t have a single bad word to say about this card; okay maybe the celebrations are cringe-worthy. But, seriously, this card is the meta personified: Quick and fast with 96 SPRINT SPEED & 97 ACCELERATION; lethal finishing with 5 STAR WEAK FOOT + 99 FINISHING & 96 SHOT POWER; ridiculously agile dribbling with 93 AGILITY & 85 BALANCE; pinpoint passing with 92 VISION & 91 SHORT PASSING, and he can do it all game long and in big moments with 91 STAMINA & 92 COMPOSURE.  I didn’t even mind his 66 STRENGTH as he held off bigger defenders the majority of the time.  Just a well-rounded weapon of mass destruction.

Closing Words

You would think I am hoarding 15 of this guy in my transfer list the way I am going on… but I think it comes down to the fun I had during this review.  To be honest it can cloud over some of the inefficiencies of a card and I hope I am not missing any key shortcomings.  However, when I look around at other comments about this card I feel like I am on the right track and not over exaggerating how class this card was, and I think he would be the same for you too.  Cheers for reading.

Antoine Griezmann Player Review
By VpDirty, 28-03-2020

When i packed griezmann he went straight into my team and all i can say is that he is something else. The card is very well rounded with stats that are good across the board for an attacker, his passing is also remarkable where he can pretty much ping balls to any player . With the addition of the 5* weak foot he is now very good on both feet and you don't have to worry about putting it onto his left foot.

His 5* Weakfoot is very good and he is very clinical on either foot .

His finishing is very good and he is usually in position for a finesse shot.

His traits are very useful for this card because he has the finesse shot trait, flair trait and outside the foot shot trait.

His passing is pin point and very accurate in game.



The price seems a bit steep for a card like this however he is still good.

His work rated sometimes means he is quite defensive and not always up for the attack.

Most fun player I've used this FIFA
By TheMrManlyMan, 14-04-2020

I recently had gotten a lot of coins and decided to try out fut birthday griezmann. I paid around 1.4 million for him and he is worth EVERY SINGLE COIN. Out of all the cards ive tried this fifa, he has to be the most fun card as of this review. He is an outstanding goal scorer and the 5 star weakfoot shows itself every game. with the hunter chemistry style, i play him along neymar at striker in a 4-4-2. he plays as my right striker with the false 9 tactic on him. although the tactic has him stay back more often, i always seem to find him being the top goalscorer each game i play. his dribbling feels extremely responsive, and his passing is perfect. he is one of, if not the best CAM/CF/St anyone can have and would highly recommend getting for yourself. He has an amazing goal contribution for me, and i honestly will probably keep him for the rest of the game.

Shooting- he does not miss for me at all.

Passing- this guy can pass for days

Dribbling- for me, feels like neymar

pace- with a hunter he is an unstoppable stiker, anything else hes a deadly CAM

Physical- His stamina is good enough that he lasts the whole game including extra time

Physical- his stamina is great, but his strength isnt as good. if you cannot dribble in this game, he will get shoved off of the ball frequently, however i have personally not had to deal with that too often.

Defending- He has surprisingly made some decent tackles for me, however i would chalk it up more to luck. other than that, i wouldnt play him in any defensive role (why would you lol)

Has to suit your style of play
By StinoMaasje, 05-04-2020

So when this card first came out, I wanted to try this straight away. I had been using Griezmann in the beginning of fifa 20 and I really liked him back then. I bought him for 1.530.000, which is a fair price for a card with stats like these in my opinion. I put a hunter chem style on him to boost his pace, then I put him in striker in a 4-2-3-1 formation with Neymar behind him. Played a few rivals games with him and then went straight into the weekend league.


The first few games I really had to adjust my style of play. Before him I was using Mbappe in the striker position. Due to his splattering pace you outrun defenders pretty easily, and with his strength he also wins a 50-50 every now and then. Even with the hunter chem style, Griezmann didn't even get close to that pace. I wasn't expecting him to, but the difference was pretty big in my opinion. Griezmann also get's pushed of the ball easily in comparison to Mbappe. If your style of play is to play deep balls behind the defender, I would suggest Mbappe over Griezmann.


Then when I started to adjust my style of play, Griezmann's presence became more noticeable on the pitch. I started using him as a sort of "false 9", where I didn't play with through balls anymore, but by building up attacks slowly and keeping the ball in posession. This is where Griezmann stood out. Let me tell you this: If Griezmann gets the ball within 20 meters from the goal and he is able to get a shot off, it's probably a goal. Left foot, right foot, power shot, finesse shot, it doesn't really matter he can do it all. In 30 games of weekend league he managed to score 46 and assist 17. Especially his finesse shots from the edge of the box are something else.


Another point in which Griezmann stood out, is his passing. One word: phenomenal. I've seen this man giving trough balls to other attackers, disgusting. At some point he was even giving through balls which Xavi in his prime wouldn't even think about. Even in the shitty gameplay this weekend (at least, my gameplay was shitty) his passing was on point.


Overall, I would recommend him if he fits your style of play. Don't expect blistering pace from this guy of physical presence, but do expect an insane shot (with both feet) and insane passing. I'm switching back to Mbappe after this weekend because he fits better into my style of play.


(For context, I am a division 4 player who usually finishes gold 1 in weekend league)





  • Passing
  • Finesse shots anywhere in or around the box
  • 5 star weak foot
  • Physicality (exept stamina, he can last a full 90 minutes without problems)
  • Pure speed (he is quick with hunter, but not Mbappe/Douglas Costa quick)
