Paulinho - 88 - Flashback SBC
Bruce Banner's Wingman
By Mercaj10, 21-11-2019

Okay so this is my first review, but let me tell you one thing. DO THIS SBC!. First game, I flicked the ball over Scream Pique and blasted it past Ter Stagen and that's when I knew I had to do this review. Although he only scored 3 goals in the 10 games I played with him, he was playing right CDM with my Pep at left CDM. They complement each other so well. Pep does the dirty work and Paulinho distributes. I used to play Vidal next to Pep and this guy is a big upgrade. I did the Hulk SBC and the Johnathan league SBC since I needed a link and now I have the perfect trio. Hulk and Johnathan are great, but this guy is next level. I can see him being used up until TOTS because he is that good.

Pace - 7/10 - He does lack a little pace, but nothing an Engine can't fix.

Dribbling - 8/10 - For have lower agility and balance than I would like, he is pretty good on the ball. Does not feel stiff at all and if you apply an engine he will be much better.

Shooting - 8/10 - For playing 10 games, he scored 3 goals. A banger for a debut goal, and two long shots after, he got a 1 on 1 and missed it. I have not had many more 1v1 chances, but be careful with shooting with him inside the box.

Passing - 9/10 - He did not ever put me in trouble for any pass he made. Once or twice he would play a short over the top ball which could be the game being dumb.

Defending - 9/10 - He never seems to lose a tackle. Even if he does not win the ball on the first tackle, he will win the second because of his figure in game. He is like Sissoko and always wins the ball. Interceptions are out of this world and he is always in the right place at the right time.

Physical - 10/10 - Strength is not a problem for him. Never gets out-muscled and runs for days. His stamina is end game.

Passing, Weak foot is not a problem, Nation, Long shots, Stamina, Strength, Interceptions, Tackling

That player picture says more than a 1000 words

Like the title says, the player picture of Paulinho where he shows his tongue pretty much sums up Paulinho for you. Its like having Kante who can pass, out strength your opponent & shoot on your team & costs only 150k, even less if you have high overall players in your team. I would say absolute bargain. And hes not even that hard to link with as hes Brazilian. But to give you a better perspective of this card lets ...

I packed him in my guarenteed CSL or Eredevise TOTS pack, I felt so happy that I also cried. Instantly I tried him in my team at DIVISION 2 in rivals. I can say easily that yhis guy is officialy the cheap Gullit, I can't understand how this guy is under a million coins.I played with him 5 games to try him some positions with diferent tactics, this guy can play EVERYWERE, he is so fast, strong, h...

Flashback Paulinho - A complete midfield package

There are a lot of Box to Box Midfielders in FUT 20 but after using this card I can assure you that Paulinho is the best card so far in FUT 20. He is better than IF Wijnaldum, RTTF Allan etc.I play him at LDM alongside Fabinho in 4-2-3-1 with basic chem as it improves each and every game stats of his. He is a complete player as he provides in attack as well as defense. Pace: Yes, he is no...
