I know for this stage of the game he is about 150k too expensive because of the weak foot and low balance but I have a lot of fodder so I done him because at the end of the day it’s Bale and the sentimental valve for him I’m this game is too much for me not to do. As expected he is absolutely rapid and can leave most defenders in his dust. Obviously the big red flag about this card is the balance but because of his body type, which has a weird way of just slithering past players, it almost makes up for it. Don’t get me wrong it isn’t a dribbler like Messi or mahrez is in this game but don’t think he moves like lukaku I’m his jeans and timbs. His shooting is very very good on his left foot and he can rifle the ball with it. The weak foot being 3 star makes it a hit and miss as expected but outside the foot trait does help to make up for that. I play this card as a left sided st and the passing is good enough for that role. The strength is again good and he can hold his down own against most defenders. All in all I personally think the card is pretty good and if you have a lot of fodder just sitting there I would do it. But if you have to pay the full price I wouldn’t be rushing to do this sbc as of course ea and their thick skulls aren’t the best at pricing surprising after 10+ years of experience
Shooting- very strong left foot
pace- it’s bale of course he’s going to be rapid
strength- he’s strong and will happily get physical
links are good as he’s prem
Price- just a bit too much
work rates- high/med would be great
weak foot- power just doesn’t feel there at times in his right foot
he might leave and play golf halfway through the game
I only needed three games to determine that Gareth Bale is an insane player, and probably worth his price tag, even though it is pretty hefty. Throughout these three games I played him at left Striker in a 4312 and used an engine chem style because he needed some pace and dribbling, and his shooting and physicals were already juiced.
Pace 10/10: With an engine, Bale has 98 sprint speed and 99 acceleration, which feels even faster in game. I think it is because of his unique body type or something to do with dribbling, but this Gareth Bale card could blow past any defender I came across in div 2, and run around them horizontally as well.
Shooting 10/10: There is only one problem I could find with Gareth Bale's finishing, which was volleyed shots on his right foot, and some awkward angle shots on his right foot. Other than that, this Gareth Bale card can score in every way possible.
Positioning 10/10- Incredible, and makes smart runs, but does kind of hang in a false 9 role sometimes at striker, while the other one pushes the line.
Finishing 9.5/10- Only missed awkward angle shots on right as stated before, but on his left, I don't think he missed a shot. On all of his shots he has an insane dip and curve on them that just find their way into the back of the net every time. Also the Shot Power is insanely strong, 98 is no joke.
Long shots 10/10- What do you expect? Bale cards don't miss from outside of the box on that left foot. Gets incredible curve on his long shots, and their very powerful.
Heading 10/10- This card dunks on defenders. He has those insane champions league goals from fifa 20 built in. This card can jump insanely high, and is incredibly accurate on them. He is an incredible near post header on corner kicks, and rivals Ronaldo in the air -- I think they're about even --.
Passing 10/10: The best passer on this fifa.This guy can weight through balls like no other, and does it in very tight situations in the box where it can't get to the keeper. The crossing on this card from what little I've experienced gets incredible whip and and chipped crosses I've used are pinpoint. His weak foot does not let him down at all on this card in passing, in any area I've noticed.
Dribbling 9/10: There are some tradeoffs in being 6'1", or whatever it is cm, but his dribbling seems no worse than gold Ronaldo's was. Also including his strength, and glitchy unique animations for getting and controlling the ball because of his body type, I haven't noticed any major issues. Still, he is pretty tall, so there will be some clunk, but controls ball very well.
Defending 7/10: The defending is very good for an attacker, which gives him flexibility to press from the front, or shift into a position lower down the pitch. This card could probably play in a Gullit role in as dm, or could easily play as cm in a 41212(2) or 4312.
Physicals 10/10: This card is an athletic specimen.
Jumping 10/10- This card jumps out of the gym and dunks on any defender marking him in the box. Got multiple goals just lobbing the ball up to him in the box.
Stamina 9/10- Finally a Bale without a Stamina Issue, can easily play 90 minutes, maybe not much longer if your pressing. He was at around 45% to 55% after each game on press after possesion loss, but still kept all his pace, and full sprint stamina at the end of the game.
Strength 10/10- He is an absolute tank, no defender muscled him off the ball, and did that glitchy thing on through balls where the attacker just completely muscles off the defender multiple times.
Weak Foot and Skill Moves: 4* skill moves is fine, and the 3* wf is kinda cringe, but works fine if you don't over do it. Weak foot matters less in this fifa anyways, so cross goal shots with this card felt like they were on his strong foot.
My Opinion: This card is my favorite card this year, and I'd recommend that you'd do him, because he outplays his stats, and is just simply incredible. Fits a heading meta too, and is just incredible in all facets of this game.
Defending is good for an attacker
He is a little pricey, but I think outperforms Ronaldo, and costs about as much as him.
Only 3* WF
Has a little clunk(About as much as Gold Cristiano Ronaldo) as a consequence of being taller
YO look i am a spurs fan thats why i did this sbc if i wasnt a spurs fan i wouldnt do him cos bruh 309 k smh. ALSO i needed a defensive rm so yh why not do him although he is treating spurs like a fitness centre. Firstly his dribbling is ok. He doesnt feel sick on the ball but he feels ok. His dribbling is not bad but then when u start doing 4 star skills BALE starts tripping probs cos of the balance. I wouldnt say he has 72 balance he feels like he as like 80 but then the agility is cap he doesnt feelt hat agile. BUT if u dont do skills and want a rm that can finish, pass and can defend he is da one ig. YH he is pricy but damn pretty much every shot on goal my guy finishes. he is clinical bro. He can finish top bins and his free kicks are like sooooooooooo segsy. i had 4 with him in 6 games and sheeeeeeesh he can score free kicks. I would have preffered a left back bale cos thats when he was born to play spurs but we move. I just have sentimental value for bale ig. He aint worth 300 k but he is pretty good tho. Finishing is really good for some reason and freeee kickssss are sooooo mad. pace is calm i guess stick an engine on him for the dribbling or gaurdian so he can defend even more. End of day overpriced card but its bale for the spurs fans out there and do him if u want although i dont recommend doing him just cos of the price unless again u are a spurs or golf fan. Shit he doesnt link to muller :( might have to stick bale on the bench but yh bale is good not crazy. His totw is pretty much the same card but just less pacey and not as good at finishing,
dribbling is ok tho
finishing is ellittteeeee
can defend always a plus
free kicks are sooo maddddd brooo
from the prem so always good links and yh thats it i guess ]
if u really care is heading is mad
chip shot is a pretty cool trait to have
outside foot shot so calm
ok i guess i will give him a 7-8/10 because he can defend and his long shots are broken if he had finesse shot sheeeeeeeeeeesh
doesnt link to muller :(
pricy very pricy
country is pretty bad for links ngl
he is gonna leave spurs :/ he didnt do bits this time tho
