Sir Marcus Rashford … it has a nice ring to it and surely based on his contributions to society at only 22, it is a foregone conclusion that one day he will receive this prestigious honor. Regardless of whether or not it happens, it is impossible to deny the amazing things he is attempting to accomplish as a footballer with his global platform. I always have to remind myself that he is only 22… and when I compare it to myself at 22 it is a humbling flashback. While I could never support him on the pitch, what he has done off of it is worthy of a standing ovation and I can gladly give credit where it is due. Thankfully, my allegiances can stretch when it comes to the virtual pitch as I had some insane luck getting Rashford in my Week 1 red picks... and truthfully I am starting to notice a worrisome trend... in FIFA 20 one of my favorite players in the entire game ended up being RTTF Greenwood … and now I feel a lot of the same vibes forming towards Marcus Rashford’s latest inform… I really need a Rulebreaker Bobby Firmino Friday in the worst way to level this out before I burst into flames, but I digress. I applied a HUNTER chemistry to Rashford who immediately became the focal point of last weekend’s battle for Elite, playing as the right striker in my 4-4-2 formation. Rashford was the red devil, punishing my opponent’s defensive sins all weekend in the following squad:
If you follow me on Twitter: @IVIaeNine you will know that Rashford didn’t stop producing after the 20 match image that is posted with this review… 40 goals and 20 assists in 27 matches to be exact. Additionally, Rashford was a huge factor in setting my WL rage quit record of 13 across the same set of games, yet simultaneously limited the goal and assist returns Rashford could have reached… a scary thought. The problems for opponents are numerous but all stem from the 99 ACCELERATION & 99 SPRINT SPEED. Whether it was VVD, Joe Gomez, Diego Carlos or Varane; Rashford pushed them to the brink and beyond. For a slightly taller card I couldn’t get over just how quick Rashford could be off the mark, and he only needs the one step to create panic and overcommitted tackles from opponents who know they are moments away from staring at the back of Rashford’s heels.
Main Statistic - Shooting
Shooting Rating: 9.9/10
Weak Foot: 4 *
In my Allan Saint-Maximin review, I mentioned that it is difficult to really decipher the difference between 4 STAR and 5 STAR WEAK FOOT in FIFA 21 beyond the odd moment. News Flash: I swear Rashford does not have these moments and his left foot parallels his right in power, accuracy, and efficiency. I mentioned the issues that Rashford’s pace causes and the fact that you can not predict which way the attacker will turn only increases the defending difficulty. I could almost hear my opponent talking themselves through it … “show him to his left, show him to his left” *GOAL* “what?!?” After this point it is all downhill and cutting inside on the right opens up as well… you just simply pick the best option, pull the trigger, and plan the celebration.
Main Attribute - Dribbling
Skills: 5 *
Wait! There is more! One of the main reasons that CR7 is a perennial powerhouse in FUT is that mixture of pace, shooting, agility … and all of this in a card that is 187cm (6’2) tall. Well, I will add another name to this list with inform Marcus Rashford. Truthfully, I thought I was going to have to play with chemistry styles and add to the 87 AGILITY & 75 BALANCE at some point during my review. But in the end, I noticed zero drop off and really enjoyed the left-stick dribbling Rashford can pull off. Then you add in the 5 STAR SKILLS (not in my hands haha) and you have attacking perfection.
Value/Coins & Good vs. Bad
Value/Coins Rating: 5/5
Good vs Bad Rating: 5/5
This category does not read “Cheap Beasts,” and that is important to remember. The 600k you would have to pay to bring Rashford into your squad is a hefty price tag. But after 27+ matches now with Rashford, I can say he is worth every coin. “Game Changer” doesn’t even touch the surface of what this card brought to my squad this weekend, and for only the second time in my FIFA career, the Elite 1 finish was still in play with less than 5 matches left. While I did have a really nice mixture in my squad, I truly feel this success comes down heavily on the contributions of Rashford alone, he’s that good.
This doesn’t normally happen to me, but I am lost for words. I can’t nitpick the 88 STAMINA as it is good enough to last 120 minutes if needed. The 76 STRENGTH with the added height makes Rashford a rock on the ball. Maybe, just maybe, the 77 FREE KICK ACCURACY is a little low to compliment his POWER FREE KICK trait? Maybe, I’ll just leave this here. There is just nothing tangible to hold against this card beyond the terrible club he plays for in real life.
I am going to be honest… I acknowledged my luck when red Rashford dropped for me last Thursday… but I didn’t really know how insane it was until I sat down and really started test driving this card. I realize we are early on in the cycle and a lot can happen, but I can’t picture a scenario where Rashford is not at least a super sub for me well into February. At this point in the game, he is simply too good … and as the players improve to offset this difference, who still couldn’t use a 99 Pace-two footed-agile-powerhouse? I acknowledge that this card is incredibly difficult to afford… but if you find the means, I can’t think of too many better players to rule over your squad than Sir Marcus. Cheers for reading.
Oh my days, the beast sir marcus rashford returns to the TOTW, with an absolute banger of a card. Being a striker position, similar to last year's gold card, this card will provide an absolute dominant forward with the blistering pace, great shooting and dribbling, weaving your way in and out of defenders. Combined with good forwaards such as allan saint-maximin and adama, the front 3 of your fut21 squad can become one of the best for the start of this year's fifa. Highly recommend to get him he has been insane for me.
I could just leave it there, but it says "(In-Depth Review)" so I might have to explain why he is. As you guys know he is now a striker and oh my... He is the card you want in WL. I've done decent with this guy and scored a whopping 45 goals in 30-weekend league matches, whereas I finished elite 3. He also did 25 assists. He is insane, and you won't regret getting him. And personally, I love having a pacy and 5 star skiller up top.
Pace: 10/10. He is fast. Very fast I promise you. He runs past every defender, especially when using the fake shot while sprinting. He will get to any through ball and when he has the ball you can't chase him down. Impossible.
Shooting: 9/10. Very very very good shooting. He scores when he has to score and sometimes surprises me with the goals you can pull off. Ohhhh the bangers I've scored. The only reason he ain't getting 10/10 is because of his long shots. It is rated 82, which is still decent. But I personally don't shoot a lot of longshots with my strikers. And did I mention the 4-star weak foot?
Passing: 7/10. I want to be realistic and honest. He is 80 rated in passing, which I think is very good of a striker. He is basically just decent at passing for a striker. 25 assist speaks for itself.
Dribbling: 9/10. 5 STAR SKILLER UP TOP. What more do you want? Especially this year, the elasticos are deadly. And you need a striker to perform these. Rashford has this. Very good ball control and dribbling stats as well. You don't feel the 75 balance at all. Didn't even know the balance was that "low", but I sure as hell didn't feel him falling to the ground or getting tackled easily.
Defending: 3/10. He is a striker. Although he can actually run very fast to the midfield and still get the ball tho.
Physical: 8/10. Here I'm going with 8, you may be shocked because of his stats but I still feel like he is very strong on the ball and feels big. Also good stamina. I would be giving him 10/10 if he had better jumping.
All in all, I would highly recommend you buying this card. The pace, the skills, the shooting, this card is broken.
?so i got him in my red picks last weekend and i was stoked, for the first time in a while i got a playable red card. So i started using him in rivals and champs, and let me tell you something this guy is insane. Im currently in div 1 and have a 17-6 record is fut champs hoping to get gold 1. This rashford card helped me immensely, he is currently sitting on 45 goals and 14 assists in 28 matches and he keeps on going.
Let start with his pace, its crazy good he has break away speed and if you use the fake shot boosts almost no defender can catch up to him, keep in mind im almost every game playing against the likes of varane and gomez who have crazy speed. his shooting, he is clinical as you can see in the record i got with him, he almost buries every chance he gets in front of goal, left foot right foot he doesnt care. the dribbling, he is a tall guy but dribbles as if he is neymar on steroids, i mean he got the 5 star skills and if you combine those with the pace that he has thats just a deadly combination. i tried mbappe and in my opinion his dribbling is better if not equally good. His physical is good enough he is a big guy and bounces of defenders, its not a akinfenwe but its good enough. His passing is decent its not great but its good enough. defending isnt really a thing with him cuz he plays ST.
