Welcome to my second review of the year and I wanted to test Scream Medel since he was released, because it was a pretty nice and strange card and he linked to Vidal who is a big surprise for me this year. I played in LCM with Vidal in a 4-4-1-1 formation and I putted a shadow on him to increased his pace.
Where can I begin? Let's begin with the positive point. Strength was very good. I think it is better than Vidal at this point. When he wanted the ball, he goes and brings the ball back to my team. Also, the interceptions was nice, but not great. When Vidal makes a tackle, he wins it everytime, but sometimes, Medel does the tackles and looses the ball, like most of the players on this game I wanted to say. And the shot power was there. Not the finishing, but he knows how to blistering the ball, he just doesn't know how to put that in. It is all the good point I can give to him...
First thing of the bad things was playing with him in a bad connection. When your players doesn't feel that good, it is probably because of the balance and the agility and because of the game wants to give the victory to your opponent. Scream Medel have 98 balance and like 85 agility and in bad matches, he was BAD! Passing, shooting, pace, ... OMG he was so bad... Second it is about the stats is a lie. 98 balance? 99 long shot? 85 agility? Really dude? Vardy have better long shot than him! in one or two areas it is ok, but in like 4-5? That's a big problem. I don't want to to talk about the finishing, we know he sucks at this. Finally : the pace. every game that I played, he was slow as hell. Even with a Shadow on him. the big problem is during the acceleration.
For 40k, you have other options like Vidal for not even 5k with a Shadow, Allan for 35k, Nainggolan for like 5k (when the IF will not be in packs)... Don't buy him.
That's it for me, I hope you enjoy it. If you have any question, you can dm me on Twitter on @MRLouis_Charles.
Playing with bad connection
Stats are wrong
