BIG STEVE the most confusing Keeper
By aidenwren14, 24-07-2020

Big Steve Mandanda was my inspiration to write my first review as if the most interesting goalkeeper I have ever used. How can Big Steve be so good but also so terrible? Well, the answer is its how you use him. I went from Pope to Mandanda which sounds crazy but it had to be done for chemistry reasons and I needed a French keeper. Let's just talk about the main issue head on his Diving/Feet. Big Steve has the tendency to either dive with his feet or just dive and fall on the ground, whereas most keeper like Pope will reach out with a big strong hand, well simply Mandanda is just not tall enough and its a 50/50 whether he saves it. So is this game over for Big Steve most definitely not? Even though Steve struggles in this Area saving 1vs1s Big Steve feels like he fills the goal. If you drag steve out slightly with Triangle he will save most longshots as well as most across goal shots. The magic happens in 1vs1 if you drag him out on time he saves everything like I'm talking point-blank reactions that if you missed the shot yourself you would launch your controller through the TV. Now is the Big Steve the most meta keeper? The short answer is no but you will actually get so much enjoyment from bringing him off his line and performing miracles, YES!! For the price, if you have Sarr and Kimpembe he is most definitely worth it and he will save you in games if used right but if used wrong he can be the worst keeper on Fifa. This is my first review please give me any feedback and let me know how you get on with Big Steve.

  • Best Keeper for 1vs1s in the game
  • Feels fast coming off his line
  • Holds the ball often or parries wide
  • Decent distribution
  • Across goal shot while on his line will probably go in
  • Height
  • 3* WF if you like 5*

when on form, the best keeper in the game?

let's not make any quick assumptions here. we all know that ALL goalkeepers in this game are the most inconsistent things ever. sometimes maybe good, sometimes maybe shit. after getting stevie in my reds i decided to try him out replacing Ter Stegen... here's how i thought he was

Do not waste your money

I Used him for 3 games and had to sell him straight after my third loss in a row. This card is absolutely terrible. He scored an own goal, didn't dive for some shots and one he dived out of the way of. He seemed to let in every goal my opponent shot which was pretty annoying, while losing to people a lot worse than me. You are better off using normal Areola than this guy.
