Day 1602 of lockdown? Do you ever look at the opponent’s squad and already know you are in for a battle before the match begins? And for me it is not a complete META squad or that they have the most expensive team available. Honestly, when I see the likes of Gullit, R9, TOTY Mbappé or Cruyff I do not flinch, nor worry. I know, and always feel like I can wrap these players up and have a good chance of winning. However, when I see FUT Bday Mbappé, Headliner Neymar, POTM Ben Yedder, and oddly SS Atal I feel like if my opponent has any skill at all it is game over for me. These cards give me an absolute headache and SS Atal is definitely the outlier of the bunch in terms of price. I don’t know what it is but he simply torches me for goals every time I play. So the Ligue 1 TOTSSF was my opportunity to exact some revenge and get the Algerian Sniper into my squad. I placed a MARKSMAN on Atal and played him as the Left ST in my 4-4-2 formation. If you follow me on Twitter @IVIaeday you will already know that he had a great weekend, but we need to look at some of the issues as well. In the end, Atal was Mr. Nice guy all weekend in the following squad:
Again with Atal, we have the same issue with games played on the stats picture. I only played 20 matches (2 early D/C) and so Atal finished with 24 goals and 9 assists in 20 matches. Here is what I found out this Weekend League. If I was better than my opponent Atal was an absolute monster and scored bags full of goals. Atal had matches of 4 and 5 goals and really can put opponents to bed. The 5 STAR WEAK FOOT is so key, his left foot is incredible, and he was just about identical on either foot … the 99 FINISHING & 97 SHOT POWER = a lethal combination. However, I do say just about identical because it became evident early on that Atal LOVES to hit the bar with his left foot. It got to a comical level at one point and moved to a more anger fueled rage as the games progressed. I can think of two matches where I lost 2-3 and in both cases Atal had the tieing goal sitting on his left foot, only to end up in misery. Part user error I am sure, but still a note I made with this card. Another area of focus was the 99 ACCELERATION & 96 SPRINT SPEED, which are slightly misleading but he is still quick enough to cause the majority of defenders a problem.
Linkability Rating: 3.5/5
While Atal has a lot of options he can now link to in Ligue 1, the ability to create hybrids around him proves difficult. Honestly I was hoping he would be a central option and I could get Atal and Mahrez in the same squad, but it required a formation or off-chemistry set up that I did not want to use.
End Game Strength
End Game Strength Rating: 4.5/5
Atal is a specialist when it comes to scoring goals. He has the pace, he has the shooting, and then there is the dribbling. 4 STAR SKILLS, 99 AGILITY, 92 BALANCE, 98 BALL CONTROL & 99 DRIBBLING… the ball sticks, Atal moves, defenders lunge, and like a magician, the ball vanishes from their sight. This combination made me think early on that I might set the goal record for a review as Atal dismantled my opponents. I was loving how he could create his own space and goals in the middle of a highly contested Weekend League. However, than the competition ramped up and Atal started to slowly fall off of the radar… not completely… but certainly not dominant. A key reason for this is that as you gain more wins the depth of your opponents gets further and further back until all 11 men are standing on the goal line. With that, creating goals is one thing, but you have to facilitate them as well. I found Atal’s passing extremely underwhelming and it really showed near the end of the review. While I loved the MARKSMAN on this card for the shooting, strength, and dribbling… I am not sure if a DEADEYE is not better suited. Yet, then you lose all of the MARKSMAN goodness. This is where I started to move away from the fact that Atal is the true cream of the crop option I originally thought. He will definitely be able to hold his own but is not a 5/5 in my mind.
Value/Coins & Good vs. Bad
Value/Coins Rating: 5/5
Good vs Bad Rating: 4/5
For around a million coins this card is perfect value. The Ultimate TOTSSF will likely lower this price even further to insane value for coins… but until then you easily get a million coins plus worth of quality here.
All that is left is the physicality of this card, and it drops the Good vs. Bad Rating to a 4/5 and so you can guess where this is going. At 5’9 (176cm) with 87 STRENGTH I was hoping Atal would have that nice pocket of balance and strength that can make smaller cards into tiny boulders barreling down the pitch. This was not the case for Atal and again as games became more challenging he lost the ball more and more as defenders laid a hand to him. As a positive side note: I should mention that with the 98 AGGRESSION and 82 overall defending (residue from his original RB base card), that Atal is a machine at winning the ball high up the pitch and did create 4-5 goals from his tenacity defending off of the ball.
So, where does this card fall in the grand scheme of things? The idea with this review is… would you reconfigure your team to get this card into your squad? Because if you do not have a Ligue 1 squad to begin with this is the reality. My immediate advice is, not quite. Don’t get me wrong this card is a strong option and you will score a ton of goals with him in your squad… but he is not the ultimate game changer that you “have to have.” One final note though, I can’t deny that this card is quite fun to use (minus the incessant bar rattling) and I did find myself chuckling at some of the outrageous finishes this card produced. In the end, if you are dead set on trying this card the final question I always get asked is, “do you have any concerns about me moving my squad around to get this lad into the starting 11?” My response in this case… none Atal.
Cheers for reading.
I had the luck of packing this little slippery snake earlier on during the shapeshifters promo and boy did he perform for me. So after seeing him again in the tots i decided to open some packs and voila...
This man just completely one-up'ed his SS card en now shreds defences apart for fun. I fired up my WL campain and put him at stiker in-game. He is notably faster than the SS as he absolutely blasts past all the van dijks and ramoses in WL. And as soon as you kissed them farewell, he fires a ROCKET, and i mean a ROCKET at the goalkeeper. As bad as his previous card was at finesse shots, this one is good at it. After some nifty skillmoves or snake-like dribbling you can make the keepers head turn with a finesse that would even make David Beckham blush.
Ok so what if you're not attacking? This man tracks back like it's nobody's business and is occasionally capable of pushing even the largest midfielders off the ball.
-Pace: this man is fast enough to take on any defence
-Dribbling: his body type in combination with the upgraded agility and balance make him more rat-like than ever
-Shooting: either one of his feet is capable of launching an absolute belter at the keeper
-Physical: The combination of his dribbling and physical makes it that he is very hard to push off the ball.
-Passing: Perfectly decent for a striker, i didn't notice anything extraordinary here though
Sometimes when you shoot and get blocked, he takes ages to realise where he is and get back to the ball, altough that might be because of bad gameplay
Has had less of those ben yedder like BS slips trough the defence than his SS card for me but that might be due to lack of playing time (10 WL games)
This is my first review and I also do not speak English well but I will do my best to explain.
I have been using this player for almost a week and here is an honest review about him.
Many wonder if it is worth paying 1 million (on ps4) for this man and I can honestly answer YES.
This man is a beast, all this week that I have been using him is very good and more with that great combo of 5 * wf and 4 * sm.
If you are not much of dribbling and just want to score this player is for you.
I have used it as a striker with Eusebio in a 4-1-2-1-2 (2) and it is too good, the slightly negative side is that this player performs better as a striker, because if he uses LW or RW It can disappear, also a bit the bad side is that if you use it from MCO for its statistics of High in attack and defense it can go down a lot, it just needs you to put it to stay up and you will not have any problem.
Ok so it’s the first time I’m writing a review to be honest. Packed that lil boy last week on a Premium Ligue 1 sbc and putted him in my squad. He is switched in striker in game. Done my all my wl with him to do my weekly 20-8 and I would say that this man doesn’t really have no weakness other than just one thing : I found him not as clinical as an ELITE striker. I mean he is still Really Really GOOD but sometimes he will not scores the same shots that he would scored previously you know what i mean, particularly finesse shots wich is the type of shots im using the most by far (notice that everyone i played against also had that Ter Stegen 95 tho...). But that appart, that man is really reliable, not as a Ben Yedder Tots I would say lol but for the coins he still is a good investment.
Consistency not on top
Could score 5 goals a game and be quiet in the next 3 games
During this weekend league I have experienced a lot of disappointments. First, the servers were bad again. Second of all, my high hopes on Dybala, Promes and Di Maria went through the gutter. Third, and better news: I decided to give a chance to Youcef Atal Totssf and suddenly I felt my team competitive again. On a first instance, I was worried about his new workates H/H, but the truth is: he is an improved Atal SS card for sure, he is faster and stronger. I used him as ST on 4231 and 442, both on stay forward and it really worked out.
This is my review of TOTS Atal playing at CDM in a 4-2-3-1; typically i am an elite 3 player, however; I have not played much weekend league since Christmas, as such, Gold 1/Elite 3 was my target for this weekend. After having experimented with Thiago and Corona as my cdm's during this weekend league, I quickly realised I was leaking far too many goals, I needed a more solid option to partner Corona (swap with Gullit in-game); whilst maintaining the ability to play fluid possesion football. Once ligue 1 TOTS was released, i bought this card immediately for 1.05 million coins (Xbox). Initially I trialed him with the Basic chem style, as I wanted him to be a more well-rounded card. His role was to support the attack and pop up with goals, whilst also being the primary defender of the 2 cdm's, I expected a lot from him but I felt his stats and workrate would be perfect for this role. I noticed that even though his agility and balance were very high, he felt slightly more sluggish on the ball than Corona, and also Thiago who i used earlier; i quickly changed him to the sentinel chem style, as I felt he was slightly weak in the challenge, and his interceptions needed improving. Once doing this he felt like a new player, he was the combative, all-action player I needed to dominate the midfield. He was able to break up the play and progress the ball with ease, whilst still maintaining good dribbling and finishing abilities. After a very poor start in the weekend league (8-5) I was able to recover to a respectable 21-8, just missing out on Elite 3. Although his price has plummeted since I bought him, this wont matter as he will be a mainstay in my team for the rest of the game, I would highly recommend him to anybody looking for a midfield all rounder for around 750k; I have used many top tier midfielders such as TOTY Kante, Prime Vieira and Mid Zidane, Atal is far more effective in game as a box to box midfielder and suits this year's meta perfectly.
5 Star weak-foot - I shouldnt need to tell anyone this but its essential any players you have in goalscoring positons have 5 star weak-foot.
Finishing - 10/10 - Atal was a very reliable finisher on either foot inside the box; scoring 5 goals in 23 games from CDM.
Pace - 10/10 - Atal's pace was a real asset both in starting attacks and progressing the ball, and also covering for Gullit many times at right back when he was constantly outpaced at right back.
Dribbling - 9/10 - Atal was great at turning out of tight spaces, however, his lack of 5* skills meant he wasnt able to do the flip-flap and scoop turn, the most effective skills in the game.
Short passing - 9/10 - Atal rarely gave the ball away with his short passes, he is able to play quick short passes to help your team counter attack quickly.
Long Passing - 7.5/10 - Potentially due to his low vision stat, his long passing wasn't anything special; I wouldn't recommend pinging over the top through balls with him.
First Touch - 7.5/10 - His first touch was typically very solid, although I did notice on a few occasions when in attacking positions he would completely miscontrol the ball on his first touch, this could either be due to his 87 composure, or more likely, a side-effect of poor gameplay all weekend (fix it EA).
Strength - 8/10 - Whilst the sentinel chem style improved his strength, he sometimes lost out to taller or bigger-framed players in 50/50 challenges, this would sometimes impact his tackling ability but in the main he was still solid defensively.
In order to get the most out of Atal I would recommend partnering him with a more physical player such as a Vieira in order to allow him more freedom to attack; think of him like Pogba, he needs a more defensive minded player like Kante to allow him to run the game.
Woah woah woah.... Happiness noises when he was packed from the 92+ double upgrade along with fut birthday Hazard... And even more happpines when neymar came from the 82+x5 packs... C'mere Ben yedder.. I use him as a ST in a 41212 in game with Ben Yedder as CAM and neymar as LST. These three are a nightmare for every defense... brought atal on as a sub for the sane challenges to secure a tight 3-3 win.. and withing 10 minutes (of the game) he scored 2 and assisted one more to seal the game and nail the coffin on tight.. His entire card is on steroids, AND LOOK AT THAT DEFENDING! 82 on a RW?? WTAF? He is a beast at CDM too, or even CM. A marksman suits him brilliantly and GO GET THIS CARD if you have the spare coins...
