My first review. I hope it is helpful.
I prepared very early for the LaLiga SBC. When it came out I first was a little bit dissapointed because of the players to be picked. I decided to pick Hernandez even though he is hard to link because of his nationality.
So far I used Hernandez as sub. I really like him because he is a rather small player with good pace and agility.
Tonight EA brought the Kubo SBC and I immediately decided to go for him. With Hernandez in front they both come to full chemistry. Kubo/Hernandez are now replacing Adama Traore and Diego Costa in my team. I honestly have to say that I really enjoy playing them in this combination. Never played Messi in FUT, but I imagine that Kubo feels like a light version of Messi.
By the way, I have the feeling that EA this year rewards you for doing risky SBCs. For example they came up with Bolassie/Acuna after releasing Battaglia. Or Iniesta after David Villa.
- The combination of pace, agility, 4* weak foot, stamina and positioning makes this guy really enjoyable.
- 99 accelaration on 173 cm makes him running away from almost every defender.
- Finishing, curve and weak foot are so good, that even he comes from the left side he scores easily with his left foot.
- 99 freekicks are nice to have.
- Surely reaction and composure are the downsides of this card. But he does not feel as clunky as Adama Traore.
- 76 crossing is a bit low compared to the ofther very good passing stats.
