I was shocked to count that there have been 25 Flashback SBCs released in FIFA 21… 25!! Now I am interested to know how many have you all completed if any? For me, it was 5. CR7, Robben, Coutinho, (look away) Mbabu and most recently the Barcelona Frenchman, Ousmane Dembélé. For months the 83 version of Dembélé was in and around my squad at the start of FIFA 21. He was a weapon and disproportionately so. There were matches when I couldn’t wait until half time as I knew that this lad would soon appear and cause chaos for my opponents' backline. I don’t have the exact number, but Dembélé logged well over 300 matches for my club as many newcomers tried and failed to usurp his position. Interestingly, every version of Dembélé since has felt way behind the current power curve and even his widely regarded FUT Freeze always felt like a let down in my hands. However, after this weekend… I am starting to believe we are starting a new legacy as Flashback Dembélé feels like a card that has harnessed the power of old. Playing Dembélé as the striker in my 4-2-2-2 formation, utilizing the MARKSMAN chemistry style, it was back to better times for a large portion of this weekend. Dembélé proved to be the 5 STAR addition all weekend in the following squad:
We are talking about a seriously high end operator with this card. We have reached the pinnacle of FUT at this point. Literally, 20 of the 28 squads I faced this weekend were ‘strong’ in terms of the quality of cards in their starting 11. 5 more were what I would call ‘insane’ and contained the likes of R9, Gullit, Cruyff, TOTS Neymar, TOTY Mbappe etc. Three… that is the number of squads I faced this weekend that were what I would call behind the power curve and ‘should be win’ matches. With the level of opposition, it was always going to be a huge test for Flashback Dembélé this weekend, and I truly felt that he was up to the challenge when called upon.
This card has a level of dribbling that will make you question, “did I just do that?” There are moments when the responsiveness on this card feels like a cheat code and leaves defenders on the floor as Dembélé finishes off the play in behind. The turns are crisp and responsive as the base 97 AGILITY & 90 BALANCE has Dembélé spinning like a top on the ball… the left stick dribbling is so smooth with the 99 BALL CONTROL & 99 DRIBBLING making sure a sticky connection between ball and boot… while ultimately the 5 STAR SKILLS are just the icing on the cake moving forward. Then to top it all off, no one has the ability to catch you when through on goal given the 98 ACCELERATION & 97 SPRING SPEED keeping Dembélé one step (or more) ahead of opponents.
I think I have been burned one too many times by fake weak foot statistics in FIFA 21. It took me WAY too many matches to seriously start trusting Dembélé on his “weaker” right foot and definitely cost the frontman a handful of goals across the course of this review. Even still, the 31 goals in 20 match return were impressive as the 5 STAR WEAK FOOT doubled the fun in front of goal. But I don’t think we can talk about the clinical nature of this card without fully examining just how cracked his statistics are. With the MARKSMAN style, you get 90 ATTACKING POSITIONING, 90 VOLLEYS, 93 PENS & the 99 trifecta with FINISHING, SHOT POWER & LONG SHOTS sitting at max capacity. Maybe even better… this card has the hidden left footed finesse trait that I have so often talked about during these reviews and over on YouTube (channel: MaeNine). While there wasn't quite the same accuracy and sting on the right… it is still worth noting just how effective he is on either foot..
Value/Coins & Good vs. Bad
Value/Coins Rating: 4.5/5
Good vs Bad Rating: 5/5
With the release of the 90+ and 88+ TOTS packs, we saw a slight increase in price with Dembélé but this value does not reflect that. In the end, there are two truths when dealing with this card. 1) This card is undoubtedly worth 800k and would be 1.3 million coins minimum on the market even at this stage in the cycle. The 5 STAR/5 STAR mixed with an easy to link nation, easy to link league/club and just one glance of the statistics confirms his quality. 2) There are just so many quality cards that are available at this stage in the cycle, some even “free” with objectives… sinking 800k into a non-tradeable card will limit the fun you can have trying different options. True, if you already have the fodder you can say the card is still “free”... but then that fodder is not available for SBCs like the TOTS packs I mentioned before… which is fun in itself with the potential to get other options to try. To be clear, my argument is not about this card's market value as that is a no brainer and Dembélé is worth every coin.
This card oozes quality and was a key contributor to my weekend league performance. The Passing was pinpoint, the dribbling sublime and the finishing had a criminal ruthlessness. There are really no issues to confront beyond the fact that anytime you have a lean body type (of course Dembélé’s is unique to him but still lean) you will have an issue with physicality in more tightly contested matches. Still, I think this card performed admirably even in those 50/50 situations and I couldn’t have been happier with his overall contributions to the WL grind.
My instinct is to say that this card is a “must try”... and that is truly the problem. On the market for 1.3 million I would be suggesting you use/save coins and immediately take this card for a test drive. The enjoyment level is high and so is his output in the game. The real issue is that you can’t just try… and you have to buy. This is both the best and worst case scenario for a card of this quality. On one hand, you have to sink the fodder/coins into the card that could be saved for future options. But on the other, it allows FUT Managers without a huge budget a grindable card that will certainly be an end game option. In the end, if it wasn’t clear already, this card is cracked and certainly lives up to the hype. I enjoyed the ruthless finishing and slick dribbling more than I should in a game that can be ever so frustrating. With that, I hope you are all safe and well. Cheers for reading.
To start - this card is simply INCREDIBLE. He is the ultimate attacker on this game and can do everything you could ever want in one. He's like TOTW Neymar on crack/ 5* 5*, crazy good dribbling passing and skills (but obviously Neymar has 1 thing that no one else can get and that is his insane body type + Neymar flick). He absolutely killed my opponents in wl and scored some solid runs with some beautiful finishes. We all know how insane he has been in FIFA, and its so nice to see his return in a really solid card with not a crazy price but a price where not many people will be able to afford him and therefor you won't just see him in every team. I'd 100% try getting him before the end of this week or you'll be missing out on an sbc which will last you the entire game for only 700k in June. I put his strength as a con but tbh with a marksman he actually feels fairly strong for a small agile player like himself. There is no recommendation for position as he works for every single attacking position like cam, lm and rm, on the wings, at cf or st so you can do anything with him (personally I mainly used him at ST on get in behind and he did such an amazing job with an incredible 13 goal contributions in only 7 games, a couple were last minute winners/ you see one in the video at the bottom which brought a very stressful and horrible game to a nice, satisfying end).
9.8/10 - I will continue to give people 9.8 and lower and will not surpass that until I find myself with a literal perfect player like R9 (as far as I know).
I hope this review and my video can impact your decision on whether to get him or not - but all I can add to that is that if you don't decide to get him then you're VASTLY missing out on an incredible player.
I sold second inform Ronaldo and completed this card shortly after it came out because I remembered how OP the summer heat version was last year and wow this guy is crazy. I'm an elite 3 player and am currently 15-3 facing some incredible opponents he absolutely destroyed them. He's electric quick and skills are so silky with him and oh my days this guy can score longshots. I didn't expect that great shooting outside the box but he scored 3 insane finesses from ridiculous distances. The shot power makes it so every shot almost breaks the net and his unique body type makes his dribbling crazy. After 8 games of champs he scored 23 goals, him and nani pairing upfront was ridiculous but I think ousmane outshined nani. People are saying he's overpriced but this guy is the real deal and on the market I reckon he'd be about 3 mil. I really can't think of any cons apart from maybe his strength sometimes but this guy is absolutely cracked at fortnite my guy.
Switched out my loyal FB Atal for this guy, worth it. Paired up with prime Cantona at striker, this guy feels like gold Dembele at release. Dribbles thru the Tapsoba and Mbabu pairing and we all know that's a key ability. I did him with fodder and would recommend everyone who likes the Atal, Neymar, Mbappe type of player to do this card.
The shooting is clean, and his shots are fast enough to switch directions if the keeper moves.
This guy is insane saved me in many games his dribbling is so good feels like the ball is glued to his foot and the 5sm makes his even better hes also easy to link i have him on 7 chem and still one of the best players I've used all year
nothing really except defending but you dont need good defending on an attacking player like him
SBC REVIEW: First time I saw this card on futbin I went straight to the comments and everybody was spamming OVERPRICED so I kinda accepted it knowing the fact that ea been very lazy for the past week or so but just for my curiosity I checked the squads required and to my surprise the squads werent that bad and my club was stacked with fodder from objectives and red picks so i did it and ended up finishing it just for about 50k. The card is basicslly the upgraded version of FUT BDAY ATAL. double 5 and the perfect body type for good dribbling.He can play anywhere in the attack LW,RW,ST,CAM. currently im playing him at RCM in a 5-3-2 I know it's a rat formation but I've been playing my best fifa ever since. He plays at full chem with a marksman chemstyle.
AMAZING DRIBBLER (STICKY,QUICK SKILLS,FAST)
max shot power on both feet
BRILLIANT PASSER (90+ on everything except for free kicks)
makes good runs
perfect height for winger
Being very picky here
not tall enough to win headers like mertesacker
not strong enough to bully players like bolingoals
Used him at striker next to Eusebio in the weekend league and where do I start. His pace is incredible, along with his insane dribbling and amazing body type which helps him to glide past defenders with no problem. Shooting is great, not perfect but really solid and good enough to use in a striker formation. Also, stamina is great so he can last the entire game!
I used Dembele as my left striker in a 4312 with a hawk chem style.
Pace- 10/10: Dembele is the fastest straight line runner in the game. He is absolutely incredible on the counter, and destroyed showdown Kyle Walker at CB when I faced him.
Shooting- 9/10: Dembele can shoot with either foot, and has an absolute rocket when he does, but he has really bad positioning for whatever reason. For example, he widens on the break pretty often(even on stay central instructions) and sometimes runs back weirdly when I'm attacking from outside of the box.
Positioning- 5/10: Like I said earlier, he drifts into weird spaces out wide, and makes some weird runs backwards sometimes. Other times though, he can make beautiful runs behind the defensive line, he is just really inconsistent.
Finishing- 10/10: He makes every single chance count. The 5* wf is incredible, and the power on his shots is insane. His shots are absolute rockets from any position, and even while contorting to make a shot. The volleys are great from what I experienced.
Heading- 1/10: Absolutely dreadful at heading the ball.
Passing- 10/10: Every single pass from him was great, and he gets incredible curve on through balls. He was able to switch the play very effectively and was excellent at crossing.
Dribbling- 10/10: This is the best part about this card to me. The reason I called him a glitch in the title is because he is able to rainbow flick and sombrero flick perfectly, like in the old patch of FIFA 21. He is literally unaffected by any pressure by defenders while doing the rainbow or sombrero flick, and the ball just magnetizes to his foot. He is also able to croqueta cancel and L stick dribble like a mad man. The only downside I can think of is that 5' 10" might cause a little clunk in bad gameplay.
Defending- 1/10: Absolutely terrible at defending and doesn't really press after the ball is lost.
Jumping- 5/10: He's not good at jumping or heading.
Stamina- 8/10: He did tend to be low by the end of game, at around 45-55%, but I was force feeding him the ball.
Strength - 5/10: Because of his unique body type he was sometimes able to just body defenders, but he also got knocked over sometimes because of his lack of actual strength.
Weak Foot and Skill Moves: 5* 5* is extremely good and fun to play around with. The 5* wf is just as good as his strong foot. But more importantly, this card is the best skiller on the game. The ball is literally glued to his foot when he does skill moves, and like I mentioned earlier, the sombrero and rainbow flicks are insane with him. He also felt like he could skill chain very effectively without losing the ball, which is cool.
My Opinion: This card is so much fun to use, and just felt like a glitch when I played with him. He is absolutely full meta too, which is a bonus to any rats wanting to do him, as well. I think he is probably worth 700k too, because of the price of Nani on the market right now, but 700k is a lot.
Ability to do the rainbow flick and sombrero flick like it was pre-patch
I transferred him to the offensive line in the 442 system in the game.
He scored many goals for me. It may not be the best (especially physical strength) but his body shape and height is such that he slips like a fish among the defenders.
He scored 18 goals in 20 games for me, but one of his best features is giving the right assists, so he sent 30 assists to Isak tots.
I used to use Ben yeder tots, but he is short and did not have good physical strength. It also had a very high price.That's why I gave up. Due to the high ranking cards that are given in the game, it can be easily bought.
I do not know how to dribble, but it will certainly increase its value for those who dribble in the game.
