Honest Review of Prime Kenny Dalglish (Fantastic)
By Duckzworth, 12-02-2020

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?


The simple answer is yes, he does live up to his hefty price tag. When you use him in-game you can immediately feel how special he is. Whether its his responsive dribbling and nippy pace, or his positioning in the attack. He’s the complete package. I also absolutely love how he pops up in the right place at the right time constantly, I never got the feeling he went missing in games. However, his best attribute, and the main reason you should buy this card…. Is his shooting. My word is it good. He has some of the best shooting I’ve ever experienced in FIFA. He is so clinical in front of goal and quickly became someone I could rely on when it was crunch time. His shot has so much power behind it that it just seems to beat the keeper every time, and his 5-star weak foot means he can score in every which way possible. He scored so many important goals for me in weekend league that it made me question if I could even survive without him in the team.


After giving it some thought though, I think I would be just fine without prime Kenny in my team. Only because I would use his baby card instead. The 87 Dalglish has that same special something that his prime does and is way better value for coins. Yes, his passing isn’t as good as the prime, and he’s a little slower in general. However, paying an extra 1.2mil for a slight upgrade just isn’t worth it for me when the baby still possesses the same qualities that matter most.


  • Shooting is top tier, very consistent and clinical
  • Great feel on the ball, very quick and responsive
  • Surprisingly strong and hard to tackle
  • Makes very intelligent runs and seems to pop up in the spots you need him most
  • 5 star weak foot
  • Has that special something, feels overpowered


  • Passing is a bit of a let down
  • Not suited for hold up play
  • Overpriced when compared to his baby card

King Kenny

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 especial...

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,...
