86 - Halloween SBC
4.0
Slippery Little Bast*rd
By wonttellyouagain, 30-10-2019

I loved watching this guy play in MLS and I don't really have a proper like-for-like sub for Messi on my bench, so I thought what the hell. This guy plays pretty much exactly how I thought he would. Tiny, fast, agile, close control, great shooting, excellent passing. He's the type of guy that gets tackled 3, 4, 5, a half dozen times before he loses the ball, then immediately wins it back. Really does feel like the poor man's GOAT. I swear he's got a cephalopod trait that allows him to expand and contract his body at will to get in and out of tight spaces where a normal man could not.


Acceleration is great out of tight spots but he's not going to outrun most meta defenders, which I feel like Messi is usually pretty capable of. I was subbing him on so stamina was no issue for me. He's an absolute dwarf and won't win a single contested header in any situation, but you should still try because it's hilarious watching him only get about chest high with his jump.

  • Tight dribbling
  • Great passing range
  • Decent shooting if somewhat inconsistent
  • 4-star combo
  • Big heart

SURPRISINGLY A COMPLETE BEAST (supersub)
By iPackedNeymarFIFA20, 29-10-2019

Did this SBC for around 4k as i had loads of untradeables in my club. thought id give him a go as a super sub as his aligity and curve and acceleration was so good. Brought him on as an impact sub in a 41212 narrow as a CAM and honestly he does not dissappoint one bit. USED IN DIV 3!!!


PROS:

AGILITY and DRIBBLING are his biggest pros. i have neymar and mertens in my team and have also used players such as george best and messi but i can honestly tell u that Giovinco is the best dribbler that ive used.

FINESSE SHOTS are nutty with this guy. U can really see the 96 curve and 87 shot power finesse shots are legit messi like.

CONS: sprint speed, stamina, strength

which chem style?

as i used him off the bench the chem style used on him wasnt as effective as it couldve been however if u were to start him i would use either a maestro or deadeye as like i said his dribbling is nuts

DRIBBLING AGILITY

FINESSE SHOTS

STAMINA IS AVERAGE WOULDNT RECOMMEND CENTRAL CAM IN 4231 NARROW AS THAT POSITION DOES A LOT OF RUNNING

STRENGTH OBVIOUSLY IS NON EXISTENT

SPRINT SPEED OVER LONG DISTANCES ISNT GREAT HOWEVER IN A 41212NARROW I DONT NOTICE MUCH AS A CAM

Surprisingly good

I did this SBC because I thought he looks like a fun card to use and because I loose so much money by selling my teams all the time.

I packed Lenglet out of the 1st pack so I made profit as well.

Then I thought I'd give him a try and he really surprised me.

Although he is weak, his aggression makes up for it, he doesn't let go of the ball.

His shooting is really good, powerful shots as well as good finesse shots. His passing is also really good, would make a good supersub CAM.

For 40k I think this card is worth the price.

  • Shooting
  • Pace(feels quicker than what the card says)
  • Passing
  • Aggression
  • Dribbling(especially agility)
  • Strength(obviously)
  • Hard to link
  • Jumping

Not much to say really, 40k for a solid super-sub. Acceleration is rapid great for one twos, sprint speed is meh if you are past the defender or beside them you should be gone but he cannot sprint through your opponents defense like an Insigne or Messi (similar players) would. Shooting is as it says on the card, solid. Dribbling is great very similar to Insigne. Strength is woeful, if a defender grabs you or makes a weak tackle you might as well give up.


Used as a super-sub.

Call him the Messiah...

I'll try to make this not one of those reviews that drag on and on, so let's just cut to the chase. Div 3. Rank 1. 25 appearances. 32 assists. 29 goals. The stats don't lie and nor does his height... or lack of it. I understand the height is an aspect that turned some people off but combine that with killer dribbling, lightning acceleration and sufficient skill moves, this guy dances across the pitch. He is an Italian mafia boss with a loaded rocket launcher for a long shot. For hardly any coins (I did it basically for free with untradeables) this guy will launch your team into the next stage in FUN Fifa. No joke! This guy has been great for me in previous Fifas and it's nice to see that his legacy still lives on. I highly recommend!

Speed - Little legs = acceleration

Shooting - Shot power and log shots both great

Dribbling - Just perfect


Links - realistically Icons, Insigne or Politano are needed

Strength - let's not
