(First ever review so hopefully I don't butcher the format!) Picked up Paulinho on the web app for my starter team and have been blown away by his dominance in midfield so far. If he were still in one of the big five leagues this card would be wildly more expensive. Instead, he is probably the best bang for your buck in midfield out there, certainly for the first few weeks. He completely runs the show in games against the weaker starter teams, and when my no money spent squad gets matched up with the much more expensive squads, he’s more than equal to the challenge.
Partnered in a nice little triangle with Anderson Talisca and Renato Augusto, I started off using him as the sitter in the double pivot of a 4-2-3-1, and he was incredibly solid. He brought a real sense of solidity in front of my defence (which I invested in last), has an excellent tackle on him, and crucially (unlike a lot of starter DM’s I’ve used over the years) can actually pick a good pass out once I’d won the ball with him. With 4*/4* and solid passing numbers, I feel comfortable with him on the ball even when my opponent is pressing high trying to get back into the game.
However, once I’d spent a few coins on the backline and felt a bit more comfortable on the game, I took the shackles off him, removed the stay back instruction, and he really began to shine. Thanks to his really high stamina he’s able to be all action all game and not burn out too much and that, combined with the H/H work rates, has meant he’s able to regularly to join the attack and still get back into position to help out defensively. He feels must faster than I expected when I first saw the card, not in a Kante of previous years side to side buzzing defensive kind of way, but if you spot him on a darting run from deep, he can really build up good speed on the breakaway and, already said, gets back defensively without any worries. In front of goal he’s got some real threat for a deep lying midfielder. His long shots are good value to earn a corner (I’ll come back to them!) and I have had one fly in past De Gea from a mile out that certainly caught my attention! Closer in, if he finds a pocket of space with a late run, he’s good value with a powerful cross-goal shot. From corners he’s an absolute menace though! I’ve not bought any chem styles yet, and on basic his jumping goes up to 97, and this (combined with his strength and heading) makes him a great target. So far, four of his goals have come in the air, while a couple more for the team have been caused by him rattling it of the woodwork and someone else knocking in the second ball.
In short, Paulinho is unbelievable value for the early stages of the game. He’s a complete midfielder, who adds defensively and offensively, and should be more than capable of sticking around with the power curve at least for the first weekend league or two – if not further depending how quickly it ramps up this year. His links are a little limited in the CSL, but there’s a good triangle there right now and of course Brazil is highly doable once you move on from them.
Felt faster than expected
Good goal threat from midfield
Incredible stamina for this early in the game
Great option at corners thanks to jumping/heading/strength
CSL limits you, particularly long term, as far as links go
I used him with Shadow in 4-4-2 with Allan in center. And he was a good even in div 2 rivals. He is versitile, can do everything you need. I like him more than Allan. And he is much cheaper.
Firts, his pace is good. With shadow he feels good enough.
Very good defending. Nice passing, both short and long. Good finishing, overall good shooting. His jump is very good, can win taller players in air. And most of all, he has a very good body type. He is agile, good balance, it is easy to control him. Plus, 4+4.
Stamina is not an issue for him, 90+.
So, i like him much. Only serious con is links because of league. But with Allan, Moura, etc you can solve it.
Highly recomend him! For 9k wtih Shadow on PC he is a good choice.
1) good in all areas: nice defending, passes, shooting, dribling
I'm going to keep this review short and sweet. I have played around 20 games with Paulinho and I can only say that he is an utter disappointment. He feels extremely clunky and slow and he can't seem to make a decent tackle. He doesn't track back at all for me, even though he's on stay back. He is always giving the opponent way too much space. I've had dozens of occasions where the ball would literally roll past him without him even trying to make an interception. His stats make him seem much better than he actually is. Passing wise he is decent, but on pretty much all other departments a complete let down.
Passing: he has good passing. RB/R1 passing works really well with him.
Stamina: he will last you the entire game
Defensive positioning: absolutely poor positioning, always way too much in front of the last line
Interceptions: literally does f*ck all to intercept the ball, no matter how close the ball is
Tackles: piss poor tackles, ball always ends up with the opponent
Reactions: my god is this guy slow to react, will never win a free ball
