Is Hernandez a cheap beast?
By Nanuan, 17-11-2019

First up: I played this dude for a very long time. I bought him back when he was 70k. Seeing him drop to 7k suprised myself, so this review might be slightly biased to me, thinking he's pretty expensive.

Lucas Hernandez has very good pace for a CB, so I can't complain about that. But I could literally rant about how bad his Defensive Awareness feels ingame, and how terrible he generally is, with bad gameplay for hours, but I'll keep it short. With good gameplay, he does a solid job. He can be a bit rough (pressing L2/LT, but still causing some penalties), but that's quite rare. He blocks shots very well, and his L2 defending overall is actually very impressive. His pace will make your life a lot easier against pacy attackers, and short passes are very accurate. If we only had good gameplay (EA pls fix this game) I would probably give him a 4* review. But then this monstrosity called Weekend League shows up, and completly makes this guy look like garbage. He feels very sluggish, so agility isn't even a thing anymore, and his Defensive Awareness sometimes just makes me want to discard this guy. He'll be in the perfect position to block the shot, but instead breaks his bones to raise leg above his head, or will move aside for absolutely no reason, as soon as the opponent starts loading up his shot.

So summed up, if you want to get him for some friendlies or Division rivals in lower divisions, go ahead. But if you are planning to get him for your Weekend League squad or seriously play him in your mainteam in anything above division 6, the risk for bad gameplay gets to high, so you'll likely suffer some nervous breakdowns just like I did. NO RECOMMENDATION

His 84 was great, but this is even better

I loved his 84 rated card. Bought the OTW when it came out and used it until this card came out. I've never liked a base gold card so much. He even made my team over 85 Ferdinand. So when this card came out, I knew I had to get it. It was a great choice. He was a little slow in the first few games I played but after like 3-4 games he really clicked into second gear. Since then he has been playing incredible. He has saved me...
