88 - Halloween
4.5
Brilliant Player
By oufon, 10-11-2019

Ok im doing this because its time to say bye to him and Henry 90 to buy a new squad (i always do that, is not because his performance). This card is brilliant and i would use him over Gullit or Vieira, why? because i think for 2M or 3M coins the best investment is an attacker, then prob a Midfielder (always looking for a balance).

This guy is one of the few choices i have to satisfy all what im looking. ATM in my team i need a player who can work as CM and CAM or even LM or RM.

Because

I start with 4-1-2-1-2 Firmino as CM.

If i need to play agressive i switch to 4-2-2-2 Firmino as CAM or ST (only him can do this role), other players only works as CAM (Pogba, De Bruyne and no one else, only icons like Seedorf).

If im winning or i need to play wide open i switch to 4-2-3-1 Firminho as CAM.

Do you see? In my formation i have a CDM and other CM more defensive. I need a CM who can attack and build better than mi 2 others but my biggest problem with other players is when i switch i cant use them as CAM or LM RM ST... Like Allan, Kante, and others (Pogba is god as CAM).


This guy is well rounded in every aspect, i would keep it if i have more coins or i would buy him if his price drop to 500 550k max, at this moment because of my new team. Probbably im gonna get him back. But at this momment i need his coins to buy George Best 88.


So if you are looking for this guy, yes, he is great in all aspects.


WARNING: At begining this guy was dogsh1t because i keep him with the Hunter Chem style, and his main position is CM, then if i need, i switch him as CAM or ST (he works perfect, a little bit slow but his definition is like Sonaldo). So, the most important is boost his defense and strenght, when i put him Anchor he was a BEAST.

  • Well rounded.
  • He is the only player (on 700k) who can play as good as his MAIN position as CM or ST. When i am losing and i use him as ST on 4-2-2-2 he scores a lot with Sonaldo as partner.
  • Stamina OP.
  • Shooting brilliant as Sonaldo.


  • He is not big as Pogba who can masters all the field.
  • His price is fine but i would give him a 10/10 if he was less than 600k.
  • Not that fast if you use him as ST but still great as ST, his shoot is very similar to Son.

NOT OVERPRICED!

This is my first review ever so please don't judge me! Roberto Firmino fits my team perfectly, so when I saw he was in a vote I knew that if he won I had to get him. He did, so I picked him up right as the sbc was released. I saw many people calling him overpriced, and noticed many people seeming disappointed in his stats. I think people were disappointed because they wanted goo...

Great Striker

I completed Bobby Firmino as soon as I could as i had a lot of sbc fodder in my club, for example TOTS Immobile and TOTS Luis Alberto, and I was very happy when I started using him, his finishing was very good and he was clinical in a lot of situations (i would recommend using him as a striker), his pace felt good but not like the speed of Adama Traore but i didn't expect that (it did the job), his weak foot upgrade is very...

Roberto Firmino Best in the League???

So i played number of games with Roberto Firmino had had an extraordinarily slow start to life in my club but increasing became a integral part of my squad. i would advice to make his custom tactics more about coming short and getting the ball to feet and having your wingers set as get in behind its vital that you have at least one of your wingers very pacy just because out of your front three your gonna need at least some...
