So I'm a Leeds fan and I know for a fact that'll get some hate, bottom line EBH is a Leeds fan and at this point of the game i though fudge it I'll sell my tots varane and do militao instead so here we are. Right so to start he will not be for everyone. This will be the most helpful review I can manage as I don't want people going away splashing out 1m+ on his if he won't work. So he's a big lad and even with that agility/balance being decent he does feel clunky but if you hold play up with him smartly my god he sucks defenders in and boom goal. Moving on to his shooting, this is where it gets outrageous. It's an oversaid statement but by god this young man does not miss a thing. His shot power is about 9 million but unlike Vardy it is top bins every time. His runs were the first thing I noticed he always produces the best plays to pass him in behind and there is simply only one result. His passing is honestly insane for a striker he can do anything you ask of him there and with 11 assists for me in 15 games when he's the main goalscorer says more to his passing than anything else. I feel Haaland is a unique player there really isn't anyone else like him but if you play little and large up top he is perfect beyond all words. Obviously he isn't for anyone as he isn't 'meta' but never mind that boring tripe he is so much fun! Don't just think that's a cover for him being sub-meta because his other abilities cancel them out. The only downside I can think of is 3* skills but he's a battering ram jesus forget even trying to skill with that warlord up top. I will concede he is not agile and won't be someone you can pace abuse despite the 97 pace and jink inside and out of defenders you have to wait for the run to play him in but you'll get several a game. Unique, can even risk at CAM no problem I'd say if you want something different give him a go his FS was good for me but this was some experience.
-Shooting, and then some
-4* wf never posed a problem finishing on his right
-Speed when in behind he is gone
-Can feel clunky
I packed him in the bundes tots pack and he changed my hole team. I also packed Muller so i did a team with him and sabitzer. I played 4312 with haland and vardy strikers and haverts tots as cam. Its an incredible card if you're looking after a goal scorer. Its very similar to super prime Drogba, but better for me. In my opinion, he´s not worth the coins. 1 million is too much for this car, but i think that if he goes into 800k or 700k its worth it.
Other con is that he can only play as st.
-Shooting: he just can´t fail a shoot with the left
-Physical: he pushes off mostly all defenders, like Maldini or militao
-Pace: believe me, it feels like he is 105 pace- WOW!
-Passing; his passing is almost perfect. His effect is very good.
-Agility: if you buy him you have to know the player that you're buying. He is literally a crane, because of his size and body tipe
-3* sm: This is a problem for just a few people, not for me, but it would be great to combine him with players with 5* sm, such as neymar
Defending=OP this year? Correct
Nothing gets past Ter Stegen? Correct
I bet everyone wants to know how to beat the OP defenses and keepers this year. The answer is ERLING BRAUT HALAND.
WHAT A MACHINE!!!!
I got this guy in my red picks and immmediatly I knew it's a W.I knew he would be good but when I used him my god was I astounded. I mean 110 goal contributions in 50 games(30 being FUT champs) tells the whole story. His shot power is 2000. The runs he makes is second to none and he actually gives you a chance at scoring from crosses and corners. He is perfect for 1-2's and players like VVD and Campbell are no match for this guys hulk-like strength. 4* WF is good enough and with that shot power everything will likely hit the back of the net. My opinion is if he fits into your team buying him is a no brainer-GET HIM NOW!!!
Pace- Will outrun alomost everyone apart from defenders like Varane and Militao.
Shooting- EVERYTHING HITS THE BACK OF THE NET!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 4* WF feels like 5*
Passing- Great at 1-2's but long passing might not always reach its intended target. However since he is a striker you'll barely notice it
Dribbling- This is something many people are worried about due to the body type. However his agility and balance are both good enough and will do the job most of the time. Yes he will feel a bit clunky and strugle to turn at times(lets hope FIFA fixes this in FIFA 21) but he dribbles a lot better than most players I suggest using an artist to fix this.
Defending- He is a striker. He cant defend
Physicality- While he cant put a tackle in, a lot of times he uses his 99 strength and 98 aggresion to push players off the ball
Got him from my 90+PP, and i was stoked, although i was wishing for Werner, but oh well. His stats look great, and my job over here is too tell you how he *feels*... Asides from his height and strength(which is useful in some ways), i cant find any fault. I say Height is a problem since he feels quite clunky to me sometimes while on the counter, but that strength manifests itself when he boops FB VVD and TOTS Carlos off the ball with ease. His height makes it possible to jostle for corners and get that good header in, which will either hit the net or make your opponent tremble with the pressure. His shooting is top-tier, i mean, 32 goals and 15 assists in 30 games speaks for itself. I have no doubt that he will be in the starting lineup for WL, given his knack for ramming the ball in the goal.
Height can make him feel clunky and slow
Lack of skills
Requires the entire game to make an impact
This man is a beast, I packed him untradeable so I decided to use him off chem and his finishing is on a whole other level. I'm a gold 2 player and he scored 22 goals in 9 rivals games. His passing is really accurate since he has 99 short passing and his dribbling isn't as bad as you would think but it's still can be frustrating at times. His 4* weak foot is decent but his strong foot is unreal. I played him up front in 442 with potm Ben Yedder and since his arrival only 2 goals I've scored have not come from him, one being from Ben Yedder and the other being from tots Henderson. His long range finesse shots and near post shots on the left are unreal, I think roughly 3 of his goals were finesse shots from distance. His 98 aggression also means that he often wins the ball back easily after losing it. His strength and pace are incredible together but sometimes he loses control of the ball and the strength becomes non-existent. You have to use this guy with an engine chem style to boost agility and balance. In my opinion, you should wait until his price drops because he's not worth 1 mil. You should also stay away from this card if you use skill moves a lot and like to dribble a lot with your strikers. If you're looking for someone to get the job done up front, like score goals and get assists, this guy will be insane.
Long range finesse
3* skill moves
sometimes 4* weak foot
dribbling (agility and balance)
not the general meta
