Where do I even start with this nasty card. This card made me come play this dead game and im not even complaining. Im having fun playing fifa again because of this card, I played 6 games in champs and he got 18 goals. Im a gold 1 player aswell. Ive been using 5* 5* players all year too trust me i know but this card doesnt need the skill moves. I think hawk is the best chem style and make sure you play him ST! His pace is top tier aswell as his dribbling. Youll be able to run past players with ease because of his strength. Ter Stegens impossible to score on I know but greenwood doesnt care, left foot, right foot doesnt matter just shoot. I didnt think I wouldve had this much fun with a card, volleys are insane with the power he has, finesse shots gives any keeper no chance. Trust me this card doesnt need skill movies. Imagine his card with a few more upgrades that hes most likely to get!
God tier shooting
5 * weakfoot
3* skills for some people
So i needed a stricker with my Hassan Trezeguet who is strong and could scorre headers.
When I saw Mason Greenwood i was very happy and completed him immediatley.I use hawg on him so i can boost his pace, shooting and physiks.
Shooting: is very good he never missed a chance.
Pace: his pace is very good he can outrun most defenders.
Passing: is better than expected.
Dribbling: is quite good for a 1,87 m striker
Physiks: is quite good and his physiks is enough foe a striker.
Defending: he is a stricker
I was afraid of the mid mid worhrates because i had prime Henry and he also has mid mid and he never did a run but this guy is diffrent.
Passing for a stricker
3 star skills
I haven't played Ultimate Team much since TOTSSF was released because let's be honest EA fucked the game this year. However, as a United fan and someone who has a lot of respect for Greenwood, I did the SBC. For fut champs, I typically finish Gold 1 but that was before I got this card. Now, I don't play anymore because I can't be asked to play against either a full you know what La Liga team or a sweaty Ligue 1 attack.
One of the key things about Greenwood is his height, being 6'2" combined with his 91 jumping and 99 heading accuracy means he's going to win a lot of headers upfront. His 5* weak foot is crucial at this stage of the game, I was bit disappointed they didn't upgrade his 3* skill moves to 4* but it is what it is. In front of goal he is very clinical, so far in the 12 games I've played with him he's scored 17 goals and contributed 7 assists. I usually play a 4-2-3-1 formation with him as the central striker, his pace and physicality is a great combination as he's able to beat most defenders in a sprint battle and out strength those he can't outrun.
In terms of chemistry styles that you can use, I would recommend (in order from 1st - 3rd); Hawk, Engine, Basic. At the moment I use him on a Hawk chem style to upgrade in particular, his volleys, aggression and pace because 93 just doesn't do at this stage of the game. If you're fussed about volleys I would recommend Engine to boost his balance from 89 to 99. In terms of negative aspects of this card, there isn't much to talk about. He feels quick on the ball, can shoot from pretty much anywhere and can hold his ground up top.
With Manchester United facing Copenhagen in the Europa League Quarter-Finals, which is to commence soon, I think we will see an upgrade to his card as United do look favourites to progress. I hope that this review helps those considering his SBC as it expires soon and hopefully we see an upgrade to this already insane card.
All stats listed below are before applying a chem style:
- Pace - 93
- Height - 6'2"
- Composure - 95
- Physicality - 86
- Finishing - 95
- Dribbling - 95
- Just shooting in general - 94
- Stamina - 94
- Heading accuracy - 99
- 3* skills
- 89 balance (Use Engine to boost if you want it upgraded)
- 64 aggression
is there anything really bad about this card? nope but i will say its not the best thing out there. first let me say hes 6'2 so he is a very heavy player, which is not the meta. now it also really would have been nice to have at least 4* skill moves but fair is fair i guess. he is a very good player though and has good value, if you are a Manchester united fan i would totally do the sbc. now that being said the Felix that has recently been released in my opinion is just a better card. but again he is very strong, has 5* weak foot and the three best traits to have on a player. not bad EA not bad but not great
5* weak foot
tall for headers
shooting is pretty good
good defending for a forward
not that responsive in game
shooting can be hit or miss
CHEM STYLE: Engine
PACE: He feels pretty fast, being able to out-sprint a lot of defenders with 98 acceleration and sprint speed (assuming you do put engine on him) and has 99 agility to pair up with it.
SHOOTING: With his finesse shot trait and outside foot shot trait, his shooting is absolutely lights out. You give him a good position to shoot in and with his 5* weak foot, he'll score almost every single time. What I did notice which I hope is due to the bad gameplay I was experiencing was when you shoot a finesse with his right, it feels more like a 4* weak foot as it seems to float in the air longer than expected, but otherwise his shooting qualities are amazing.
PASSING: His passing as a ST and later on I put at CAM is absolutely incredible. He somehow manages to find a way to slice a through-ball through the defenders to get the attackers a great opportunity to score. He also has the capability to ping a long-ball to someone who's making a run or a wide open player so that's another positive.
DRIBBLING: This one is probably the most surprising to me as although all of his other aspects such as the fact that he's 6'2" according to EA and his body type would say otherwise, he doesn't feel clunky. Sure, you can't do those Neymar touches that can get past a player with ease but he can definitely dribble past a player using left-stick or L1/R1 dribbling. The main issue however is his 3* skill moves can make him predictable as you can't pull off a lot of skill moves other than drag-backs, roulettes and step overs.
DEFENDING: You can definitely do basic tackles and interceptions and every now and then push over a defender but he's nothing special in this aspect.
PHYSICAL: As expected, due to his height and base stats, he feels really strong and with his dribbling capabilities, makes him a tricky player to go up against. He also has enough stamina to last a whole game for you. I do notice that even with his strength and other aspects, his low aggression can sometimes get the better of him as other players will attempt to push him off the ball a lot more than other players.
OTHER AREAS: As said before, his 3* skill moves kinda ruins the card, with a limited amount of tricks you can pull off to try and get past a player. His Medium/Medium workrates are ok however I do notice he drifts off to the wings sometimes so I'd advise you put the 'Stay Central' tactic on him. His traits are really good as you can add a lot of curl to your finesses as well as have a higher chance of him using his left foot due to the outside foot shot trait. He also has the potential to go up to a 97 if I'm not mistaken and considering Manchester United are a considered favourite to win the Europa League, there is a possibility he could reach that rating.
FINAL VERDICT: I think he's a very fun card to use. With the 5* weak foot and the traits he has, he shooting is almost guaranteed to be lights out for you with his other stats excelling as well such as his pace and his passing. For the price of 300k, as he is an SBC you can lower the price by doing other upgrade SBCs that could get you high-rated fodder or use other fodder that you have stored in your club. If you enjoy using skill moves or he doesn't fit your team, I wouldn't recommend this card but for those who need a PL striker or is a fan of him IRL, this is definitely a card to consider getting.
- Pace is blistering quick
- Shooting is incredible with 5* weak foot; almost any angle is a good shot for him.
- Dribbling is surprisingly good, feeling quite fluid with the ball
- Passing is amazing
- Feels really strong and has really good stamina for a ST
- Is a RTTF so he has potential to become a 97 overall
- Right foot can be dodgy with specific shots (although it could just be bad gameplay)
- His runs can be a little annoying sometimes
- 3* skill moves is not one to be excited about
- Low aggression means he can be bullied off the ball at times
Mason Greenwood what a bloody player, his finishing is almost as good as Ronaldo and 5*weak foot puts him in top3 players with best shooting IMO, his pace and dribbling are also awesome IMO you should apply hawk on him if you want to play him on ST to improve his already mental pace, shooting and to boost his physical and if you want him to play on CAM you should apply engine to boost pace, passing and his already awesome dribbling. The only bad thing is 3*skill moves but it is not too many of issue cause his dribbling is already stunning. Also value for this card is just gift it is not a bit expensive if you have few fodders. At the end of the day do this SBC it is totally worth it.
