Player Review

92 - Icon
King Kenny
By CornerTakenQuickly, 10-01-2020

So I tried out Baby King Kenny and I felt like he already was an even better version of Ben Yedder sif. Since the prime Dalglish dropped during the release of the TOTY, I managed to pick a fresh Dalglish up for 2.355.000 coins. And he is worth every penny.

The best thing about this card has to be his movement and quick dribbling. I play him with an engine chemstyle and he is turning like Neymar and especially his fakeshoots give him a "boost" not many players get. He always times his runs so that he is not offside, or dropps back to come short when needed.

Shooting - insane. Left, right foot doesn´t matter. Off balance, facing a bit away from the goal, doesn´t matter. He has neither missed a sitter for me yet, nor has he hit the post a single time. Best thing about this shooting has to be near post strong shots or even near post finesse shots.

Dribbling - as i said, I love his dribbling. He does not take weird touches and his first touch often times gives him the space to imidiately take a shot. Very similar to Ben Yedder sif.

Passing - short passing is great, he is capable of doing quick one-twos with his partner up front. Long passing isn´t really a part of my game besides on the wing, so I don´t know about that.

Pace - He is extremely fast, not Mbappé speed, but quick enough to overrun the defence. Maybe put a hunter on him if you like your players to get in behind all the time. Engine works perfectly for me though.

Defence - decent I guess, he has enough stamina and aggression to pressure the defence

Physis - he does not get pushed off that easily thanks to his high agility and balance (fakeshots around the defencer work most of the time). He will get outmuscled when on a 1 on 1 with VVD or Gullit, but who wouldn´t. Great stamina. Haven´t scored a header, but crossing isn´t a part of my game at all.

Overall I think he is on a level with players like R9, Eusebio and the rather expensiv other icons. I don´t know in which aspect of the game Dalglish has a weakness besides not having 5* skills. Hands down a 10/10 player and EA did him justice for dominating in his prime at LFC.

In the end I want to say, don´t let the game ruin your mood. Especially the weekendleague can be frustrating at times, but it just isn´t worth it to let the game ruin your weekend. I stopped at 8/11 or 14 wins the last months although I am normally able to finish on Elite 3. It just isn´t worth the grind for what you get out of it. Peace.

PS: sorry for my English, I tried my best :)

Full package. He has to be in the Top 6 for strikers this game (I guess besides Eusebio, R9, Toty Mbappe, Cruyff and Pelé).

He is so good that I´m afraid that I will not want to sell him anytime soon. So I´ll be f****** if EA somehow releases decent content in the future since I´m broke now and don´t have coins for any SBCs. Can´t wait for his prime icon moments <3

Honest Review of Prime Kenny Dalglish (Fantastic)

My honest review of prime Kenny Dalglish. To say I wasn’t impressed by this man would be a complete lie, but I expected him to be great before I purchased the card for 2.7mil simply because I had used his baby card in draft so many times already and I assumed his prime could only be better. That being said….is he worth the coins?

All Hail The King

Got insanely lucky to find this guy in my prime icon pack. Safe to say: this is the best card I have used in this, or any, FIFA. Deploying Kenny up front for the first time this weekend league, he scored 24 goals in his first 10 matches and assisted another 5. You read that right, and I'm a terrible player. I still finished Gold 3. His positioning and pace are insane. I don't know what it is, but he FEELS faster on the ball...

Sir Kenny Dalglish

So i decided to buy and try this guy because whenever he played against me, he was always a pain in the a**. So i decided to try him playing the 4-2-2 (2) formation, using him as a ST along with prime Kaka. The first 2 games he wasn't being that fantastic, i had been playing with Shapeshifter Ben Yedder and he had had a really great performance, scoring 11 goals in 10 games, but i had been playing with the 4-2-3-1 with him,...
