So I´m constantly looking for the best cards stat wise I can grab my hands on. Obviously depending on my budget, that specially means trying to keep away from overprized EPL players and that sort of boring stuff. After chem styles began getting more and more important, I now look at players after slapping the chem style on them, and how well the mixture of stats is in the end. After putting an engine on Lopez, first off, all his dribbling stats get to above 90, one of the most important things for my playstyle. Pace is enough at 94 for a CAM, really good physical, 4 skills, 4 Weak Foot. great shooting and exceptional passing. So this basically looks like one of the best in the game for 300k now. Of course ill grab him. Oh my does he feel classy, thats the word. He doesnt mess up easy finishes or passes, makes pinpoint long passes as well. He´s one of the toughest guys to tackle ive tried, his strength and dribbling keeps the ball glued to his feet, while triggering some nice dribbling animations. He makes the tough shots to get you out of tight games, and also is one of the very best on the ball, which also makes him an excellent winger. Overall, if you can get him links with rojas, tevez or salvio (Who are excellent also) or anyone else. TRY HIM OUT.
Pace - With the engine chem style combined with his strength and decent size, he is more than fast enough, no problem here. Even for playing him at striker.
Shooting - Crisp powerful shot, and doesnt miss a lot of finishes. Also has a pretty good finesse on him.
Passing - 91 Short Passing, 90 Long Passing, you dont need more on a player.
Physical - 95 Strength mixed with his dribbling makes this card feel stronger than a lot of other players similar to him, dont know exactly why
Stamina - and this is not even that much of a con, I use him all match, might be a little tired towards the end but still has enough juice to be more of an impact than any super sub you might have
I got him from an untradeable pack, so I thought I should play him.
He is a very good striker, who scores most of my goals. But as I saw the stats, I expected more. His agility is lower and his strength is sometimes one of his weaknesses. But sometimes he tackles Ferdinand to the ground. But when he is in front of the goal, he scores. Also with his left food it works very well.
In comparison to Vardy POTM or Gold Son his agility is better than Vardys but worse than Sons. In front of the goal they all perform very well. About their strength I would say that Lopez wins. Vardy and Son just loose a lot of tackles due to their strength, but Lopez sometimes wins.
