Player Review

Takefusa Kubo - 88 - Future Stars SBC
Kubo is Good but not Great
By MitchRegret, 09-02-2020

Quick review after I finished my Weekend League with Kubo in my starting XI:

First of all, I’m a normal Gold 1 player & I just enjoy the game even when the gameplay sucks (like this weekend).

  • About Kubo: He has some nice skills in his pocket, very good agility, good pass, nice shooting, nice pace and the 4* 4* factor helps you a lot in certain situation. 
  • Kubo is good but not great, Composure and Reactions make him very fragile when you have to play against tough opponents or when you have to complete a come back in the last minutes. I play him as a Right CAM into a 4231 formation or as a RM when I switch to 442 & I’ve recognized he got completely eclipsed by very good LBs (It depends by how good are your opponents).
  • Last but not least: His SBC is too expansive, do him if you can complete both SBCs under 90k - 100k;
  • Vote: 6,5

Kubo is literally the Japanese Messi. He dribbles insanely well, that 99 agility really helps him out. On his debut he scored 5 goals and assisted 1, if I saw an opening with him and he was making a run, I smashed it up to him, he bet every single defender including Van Dijk with his pace. He also shoved some defenders off the ball. I really liked that at the 70th minute, he still had tons of stamina left even...

Surprisingly good

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.To...

Japanese Kagawa

King Kubo, first of all, the objectives are simple. His acceleration is better than Adama TOTS but his sprint speed isn’t anywhere near the level of Adama. Shooting is brilliant, very good finishing, unbelievable finesse shots, good power, not great, brilliant long shots. Immaculate passing, brilliant free kicks, curve improves finesses. Top 3 dribblers in the game, I’ve heard he’s better at Dribbling than TOTS Messi,...
