I have to admit that when I first looked at Summer Heat Firmino, I was a bit dissapointed. After comparing his stats with Bruno Fernandes' (94 rated), I was hesitant to complete him. However, as a Liverpool fan, I absolutely HAD to try him out for myself -and I don't regret doing the SBC at all.
First and foremost, the main feature Firmino contributes to the team is his presence. Thanks to his High/High workrates, he became the heart an soul of the team, not only leading every attack but also sometimes helping out in defense. He seems to be everywhere, and he doesn't get tired due to his 97 stamina.
I applied engine to boost, apart from the pace (which seemed a bit lacking at this stage of the game), his agility/balance. The result was that it was almost impossible to dispossess him. Another more obvious attribute was his shooting: outstanding, even from outside the box.
Last but not least, he helped me to exploit Dalglish, Perisic and Saint Maximin to the fullest. The attacks were so much explosive than when Firmino wasn't in the team, which helped my other players truly reach their full potential.
To conclude, Bobby is the best CAM/Second striker I've used this year, and so much fun to play with. He can pretty much do anything: skills, shooting with both feet, holding the ball, leading counter-attacks, assisting other players, even defending on ocassion. That's why I believe he is the missing piece many players are looking for to complete their teams.
- Outstanding shooting.
- Composure and dribbling.
- Brilliant passing.
- 5*5* combo, which makes him super fun to play with.
- Pace could be better but it's not a problem at all. With engine it's more than enough.
