FUTBIN Player Review

TOTSSF Salah

Day 1209 of lockdown: Welcome to the sweat fest folks!  TOTSSF EPL was bound to bring some madness into the list of cards available, and it did not disappoint, with some cards even eclipsing their TOTY version.  With the level of cards, it is no wonder that the grind was real this Weekend League and I was glad to have TOTSSF Salah fighting for the badge in my squad.  If you follow me on Twitter: @IVIaeday  you will know that I often turn to 94 Headliner Salah after my 20 game reviews are complete to get me over the line in the last 10.  I was hoping that the 97 version would be exactly the same, with just minor improvements, and I was pleasantly surprised that this was exactly the case.  After applying the FINISHER chemistry style I played Salah primarily in the Left ST of the 4-4-2, often finishing the last 25 – 30 minutes as a LM.  Mo Salah, Mo Salah, Mo Salah … was running down the wing this weekend in the following squad: 

Overall

Rating: 9.6/10
Pace Rating: 9.5/10
Dribbling Rating: 9.9/10
Shooting Rating: 9.4/10
Passing Rating: 9.5/10
Physical Rating: 8.8/10
Defending Rating: N/A

Those ratings are not an optical illusion, this card is such a treat to use, and was a key addition to my squad this weekend. However, one illusion I did encounter was the difference between the pace of the in-game statistics and what I experienced in-game.  The 99 ACCELERATION is there, every single sinew snapping ounce of force as Salah blisters away from his first touch.  However, the 97 SPRINT SPEED was definitely not in full force and I found Salah’s top end to be lacking throughout the weekend.  However, if your opponent is closing in for the kill you can utilize the incredible dribbling to manoeuver your way out of any situation.  99 AGILITY, 95 BALANCE, 97 BALL CONTROL …This card is seriously one smooth operator.
    

Linkability 

Linkability Rating: 4/5

Similar to Thiago, Salah has an entire army of special carded Liverpool teammates to link.  The bright and shiny addition of the EPL TOTSSF Squad is not hurting his links either.  It is because of these options that I leave Salah at a 4/5 despite his incredibly difficult nation to link.  Unless you completed Moments Trezeguet and really enjoy that card, there is nothing else to get the Egyptian into intricate hybrid options. 

End Game Strength

End Game Strength Rating: 5/5

There was a brief moment that I had this category at a 4.5/5 despite the endless supply of ammunition in Salah’s possession. The key here was the 3 STAR WEAK FOOT.  Why they couldn’t give this card the “Jamie Vardy Treatment” and boost his WF I do not know.  Yet, I still went for a 9.4/10 in the shooting department and Salah earned every single rating point.  The left foot on this card is about as close to a sure thing as I have used.  Incredible power (99 SHOT POWER) and accuracy (99 FINISHING) combine to create a cannon, with homing missile precision.  Of course with the FINISHER attached Salah is 99 rated in every Shooting category, save for his penalties.  However, I still come back to the 3 STAR, which is ultimately holding this card back.  I still scored goals on his right leg, but it cannot be trusted and is why I can see this card being moved to the back of the queue in due time.   

Value/Coins & Good vs. Bad 

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

1.2 million as of this writing… and honestly, whether he drops more at rewards, or goes up out of packs, I think any number under 1.3 for this card is good value.  There are comparable options in that price range, but I have not yet used a card with this level of left stick dribbling, mixed with the quick burst acceleration, followed by the lethal injection left foot.  93 Stoichkov and 95 Maradona offer some good comparable(s) in the 3 STAR WEAK FOOT category and honestly lead me to think that Salah is even a bit low honestly.

25 goals and 7 assists in 20 matches during the EPL TOTSSF SWEAT FEST 2020.  It has a nice ring to it and really speaks to the level that this card can produce.  Lost in the mix of Salah’s impressive statistics is just how good the passing is with this card.  Whether breaking down intense team press or breaking down the 1 depth drop back, Salah has the pinpoint accuracy required to get the ball into tight spaces… and then his movement off of the ball does the rest of the work to create key chances when it matters.  

Closing Words

Last but not least I did want to spend just a few words talking about the strength with this card, the key detail being that he actually has some.  I was pleasantly surprised with the ability to hold off defenders and to ride tackles of bigger opponents throughout the weekend.  Again, this was beneficial when opponents tried to press up the pitch and use their CBs to pin me in… as well as against the drop back squads bouncing off tackles in the box to get those precious shots on goal.  In the end, I would be absolutely made up to get this card in any of my rewards this weekend, but if not I think I will look to bring him back in the future as I build my end game squad.  In the end, if you are looking for a dynamic ST or a creative winger you could do a lot worse than the Egyptian King… he helped me climb the Elite 3 pyramid all weekend, and I know he could do the same for you.  Cheers for reading.

Mo Salah review
By Thekylaye, 02-05-2020

To start, I was just hoping for TOTY Mane to drop so i could pick him up and use him this weekend league. When the team came out, I saw Salah 97 had similar stats to Mane, and personally I get more satisfaction out of left footed players. I was lucky enough to pick him up for 1.4 mil at the start, and after only 10 games, I dont see myself taking the money on him (at the time of writing, he is about 1.6). I am an elite player, have finished elite 3, 2, and 1 most recently, and he is incredible. I used the basic chemstyle to max his pace, dribbling, get the shot power up since his finishing is already 99, and also boost the strength and passing. I used other versions of him, but obviously nothing compares to this. I play him at ST in a 4231 narrow with 1POTM Messi behind him at CAM, and Salah outshines him by a mile. After the 10 games he has 17 goals and about 7 assists, and I wouldnt say he is better than Mane, but he is still an endgame card. There are several pros and only a few cons, but several of my boys roast me since they would never consider using him due to his standout con, which Ill get to.

His pace is nastyyyy. Feels so fast, I guarantee he will run past your Sergio Ramos on 7 chem if the through ball is timed just right. His shooting is deadly, both finesse and power. He has the finesse shot trait and outside the foot shot trait, so he will adjust to whatever angle you are positioned in. He also has the chip shot trait, but I havent tried that out really. His dribbling is lights out, his L1 dribbling on PS feels like Messi/Maradona, and his acceleration after opening up space is unstoppable. His passing is unquestionably good, havent had an issue with it. He also feels surprisingly physical, and he does feel decently strong when running, doing the fake shot cut in, and shielding the ball. Due to his high reactions as well, he always is first to the ball and can maintain possession, this is the stat I believe contributes most to the 'sticky' feeling. I played him at ST but he can play anywhere across the attack. I recommend ST or RAM, for the finesse shots far post.

The only con I can think of really is his 3* weakfoot, which you are probably thinking of. This can make him somewhat predictable, but because he is so good at dribbling and he is rapid, opening up space on the left foot hasn't really been a problem. I use 91 Son, and although he is quality and has the weakfoot, getting into shooting positions is easier with Salah. With the outside the foot shot trait, even when most players would line up to shoot on their right, he hits it with the left still, which is his saving grace. Also another con is that he doesnt have 5* skills, so he cant scoop turn, but if you rely on scoop turn to win, you should reevaluate yourself.

Abolutely deadly up top, But due to this game is wasted on the wings


Still trying to decide if its best to play him at ST and buy a RW or play WBY up top with him at RW

Pace, Agilty, Finishing, Stamina, Strength, Composure

Basically everything

Obviously his weak foot is annoying but his near perfect shooting more than makes up for it

Egyptian king!
By Skvadbilderking, 11-05-2020

So i packed salah a few minutes after the premier league tots dropped and i was buzzing, he is amazing up to where i play him, he finishes everything even from outside the box and his finesse shots is deadly, he feels really good on the ball and can cause chaos in any defence with his amazing pace, shooting and agility.

He can finish everything

Really fast

Amazing on the ball

Stamina (can last the whole game)

Strengh

The only real con is that he has 3* weak foot but it isnt that noticeable.

Heading buy that doesnt really make a difference in this fifa.
