My review will have 2 parts, part 1 was when i first upgraded him from SIF Bruno, and part 2 is when I rebought him.
I had over 350 games with my SIF Bruno Fernandes when i had the funds to upgrade it to the winter refresh. I sold SIF bruno for about 380k and bought winter refresh bruno for about 650k, i paired him up with 91 rated veron in CM.
At first i had my doubts, is he worth the "on-paper-minor" upgrade? But after getting him, i was convinced that he is worth every penny. At part 1, i didnt feel he needed the extra pace, so i used him with a deadeye chem style. He did amazing for me, scores and assist a lot of goals. With his stamina, he can also come back to help defend which he does a decent job at as a CAM.
I finally decided to sell him and bought 91 Kaka (also bought gold neymar after selling FUT birthday Costa). I can honestly say, Bruno is a better player overall, he feels a lot better on the ball than Kaka. My Veron-Kaka Partnership didnt go so well, i didnt like the feel on my team, I struggled on the weekend league and got relegated 2 division in rivals. So just before this weekend league started, i overhauled my team and my first decision is to get Winter Refresh Bruno back, also getting rid of Neymar for TOTSSF Rashford.
Part 2, i got winter refresh Bruno with a hunter chem style, and depending on either you play high paced or slow paced football, Bruno can accomodate it with the proper chem style.
with hunter, he runs as fast as my Rashford, he can run down on the wing, outpacing any defenders. He dribbles the ball really well too, he feels agile and really responsive. His shooting is on par with some of the really good strikers and passes the ball as good as any other good CMs.
Overall, the only con with Bruno is his strength, he gets bullied of the ball quite easily, (perhaps would try experimenting with a hawk chem style to solve this). But he makes up for it with how he just feels so agile while on the ball. With his price now just a little more than 400k, i think he is best EPL midfielder at that price point. Better than any icon at that price range too. I havent tried 94 rated KDB but Bruno's SIF card is a lot better than KDB's 92 rated card. And if you play fast paced football, then Bruno is the definite choice.
