So since I got him from the guaranteed totssf pack
i decided to give him a go in my squad and i'm happy with my decision.
Be aware i didn't force him into the team and he fits perfectly in my squad.
So lets start with the main attribute:
With 90 sprint speed and 93 acceleration he feels fast as a CAM,Keep in mind u need to boost his agility and balance with chemistry styles or he might feel a little bit clunky.
He can run through lower tier defenders but players like Varane,Ramos,van dijk can catch him easily.
Ok his dribbling feels great with sniper on him.Great ball control and composure make him a beast when it comes to dribbling,can take on any defender.
One of the main aspects of this card. his shoot power feels a bit low but will finish every opportunity with his left foot,His finesse shots are OP from the edge of the box.
Surprised how good his passing is. with 94 vision and great short and long passing stats he can make great opportunities for your strikers,his through passes are unreal.
Its where he lacks a bit,his stamina doesn't feel right and hes done when it comes to 70th minute,His strength actually looks decent in game and can shield the ball very well against almost every player he face.
- finesse shots
- vision and passing
- ball control
So i finally had a lot of coins to buy some expensive players. But when i saw that Visca, i needed him so badly. However, they gave me Kruse and Mariano in my player picks, so i decided to sell Visca and give Kruse a go.
We can argue all day long about the pace of this guy. 92 pace should be enough and because of the low agility i threw a sniper on him. He obviously wasn't the quickest on the pitch but it was good enough. In combination with his agility he didn't feel fast and the defenders could catch up but i just want that agility boost. You can use a engine if you really want to boost it but it isn't necessary in my opinion.
With the sniper chem style, his positioning and finishing both go up to 99. His shot power is 90 and i could feel that in game, especially next to my flashback hulk but it wasn't really an issue. In the box, he scored almost every chance but his long shots were questionable. You don't expect them to go in but it sometimes felt like he had 80 shot power when taking finesse shots outside the box. Overall, his shooting is very good though.
What can we say about this, his passing is just fantastic. I used him in a 2 striker formation next to hulk, which i didn't like because they are both very similar players, but when i moved over to the 4231, i decided to give Kruse a go as a CAM, and that's probably the best decision that i made so far.
Yes, i know that he lacks agility and balance, but he felt amazing on the ball. He was pretty agile on the ball and he keeps the ball close to his feet because of those maxed dribbling stats with the sniper chemistry style. He doesn't turn like Kent, but he isn't a truck either. I'm a huge fan of high agility but his dribbling in general made up for that.
His physical is just good, nothing too crazy but it is alright. He has just enough stamina to last you 90 minutes but that also depends on where you are gonna use him. He also felt strong on the ball, which you could expect from someone being 180cm/ 5'11" with 88 strength.
It is just a good card, and 120K is just cheap. He can play CAM and striker but i would use him in a 2 striker formation with come back on defense. I couldn't do that because i had Hulk next to him but he was almost as good in the CAM position.
- Passing for a striker
- Close to feet dribbling
- Agility (Not too bad though)
- Stamina is just enough
- Pace is just enoguh (You can apply an engine if it's really an issue for you)
