Player Review

Alphonse Areola - 82 - Normal
By kevinren16, 06-11-2019

First I would like to point out that every goalie in Fifa is inconsistent. There is probably only four or five goalies I can say that are good 75% of the time. That's just how Fifa is. Nevertheless, I picked up Areola because I played with him a lot in Fifa 19, I tend to get goalies that are 6 foot 4 or above solely because height is one of the most important parts of the goalie. There are some exceptions such as Ter Stegen.

I mainly used him to link up with Militao who is an absolute monster.

I tried Courtois, who literally is as bad as he is irl. Don't get me started on him.

Let me start out by saying, he is not a bad goalie. He is very good at saving shots, especially inside the 16. Obviously this might not be the case for others but he tends to be very clutch in most situations.

But sometimes I really just want to quick sell this card. He would go on and make the save of his career, and then let in a goal that my five-year-old brother, who plays on goals that are literally three feet high, could save.

But most of the time he was good.

Also, like most keepers, never pass back to them.

Every time I played the ball back to Areola to relieve pressure, and hit it first time, he kicked the ball literally five yards and straight to the opposing team.


It all depends on what you seek in a goalie.

IMO, he is quality most of the time and not a bad buy for his price.

The Worst Goalkeeper of All Time? I think yes.

What's up everyone. I'm in disbelief. I have never commented or written a review on Futbin ever and never thought I would. But I felt this was my responsibility to let my fellow FIFA-players know how much of a fraud this guy is. So I opened a guaranteed Winter Upgrade pack because I hate myself and I got this Make-A-Wish keeper. He is absolutely shocking. I know there's a lot of you who also got him from the pack. If you ar...

Bang for the bucks

Extremely good for his price, just as in FIFA 19. Will make incredible saves. I have Ter Stegen as an investment but use Areola instead for his superiority.

100 game review

After 100 games of rivals with Areola I can honestly say he is a bit of a disappointment. For 10 games in a row he single handedly wins you a game by stopping absolutely everything. Other games he may as well be out for tea because the goal is basically open. He will make absolutely amazing saves and it makes you think "wow, this guy may actually stay in the team for a month or two" and then in the next game he lets a 40 ya...
