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
