I love this card, I was fortunate to try out some of the best cards in the game, and Kane is up there. I was just checking his price and decided to have a look at the reviews, I find this card as one of the best in the game, and when I see someone review him as "Meh", and gives him a 3/5, I can only assume that he is a pace abuser and doesn't play football. Kane does so much on the field, you want him to hold up the ball, you got it. You want him to win the header off a goal kick, you got it. You want him to have great one-twos, you got it. You want to hit him with a through ball, you got it. Just because he has 71 pace, doesn't mean he has to outrun the defender, just hold L2 while running and he'll body him almost every time. Infront of the goal, almost never misses. Everything about this card is perfect. He is a starter for me, but I like to try out new players, so there are a lot of games where I sub him in around the 60th minute mark, also a lot of games where I play him as a CAM, but he still has a positive goals to game ratio. I'd say he's the second best striker in the game after R9 Ronaldo. (who I've used).
-4* Weak foot
-Agility (fits his playstyle tho so thats fine)
I got Harry Kane and this week's player pick and I was very excited to try him out. Up until this point, I had been using Pukki as my ST in my premier league squad. I had been relatively happy with Pukki, he was averaging about 1 goal per game for me, which is quite a lot considering how often people rage quit. I thought Kane would suit my style of play because I don't usually rely heavily on strikers with lots of pace or crazy dribbling. On the whole, however, I've been disappointed. Yeah, his finishing is pretty good, but it's not noticeably better than Pukki's or Ben Yedder's for example. Both of whom are MUCH more mobile. I essentially was not able to dribble the ball with Kane. Either you get that shot off right away, or you're not going to get one off at all with him.
All in all, I've only used him for 6 games and I've scored 5 goals. That doesn't sound bad at all statistically, but Pukki probably would have been able to pull off a goal in most of those situations and would have created more opportunities for himself, not to mention players who can dribble like Ben Yedder or Zaha.
He's fun to score with because his shot is so powerful, but when it comes down to it, you're much better off using a more mobile striker who you can actually move the ball around with. If you want to use Harry Kane, play FIFA 19.
- Powerful, accurate shot.
- Good passing
- Incredibly immobile
- takes a long time to get his shot off - lots of shots end up getting blocked.
- Was shocked when I saw that his stamina was 88...he was pretty drained by the end of each game. Didn't matter much though because you can't really run with him.
