This is it. This is the end. Another year of FIFA reviews in the books and much like last week I just wanted to thank everyone for the reads, comments, suggestions and your valuable time throughout the year. Another massive thank you to the guys at FUTBIN for the autonomy, guidance, and just genuine care that they have shown me year in and year out. This review really does feel like the absolute perfect way to see out FIFA 21 as we come full circle with the upgrade to one of our most successful reviews of this FIFA cycle with Paulo Dybala. Of course, I am referencing the Player Moments Dybala who played an impressive 400+ matches for my club and contributed a lot to the success and enjoyment during the many Weekend League grinds that he took part in. However, there is no time for nostalgia in these fodder sparse times and the club said goodbye to a living legend as Player Moments Dybala entered into one of the Futties Dybala SBCs to lighten the cost. He will be missed… but we move. This weekend I utilized Futties Dybala as the LAM and ST in my 4-2-2-2 formation while the HAWK chemistry style is about the only option that makes sense given his ridiculous starting statistics. Dybala was the frenetic flair all weekend in the following squad:
I really really thought this card was going to finish off with the perfect 10/10 rating for the year-end wrap up. The upgrade to a 4 STAR WEAK FOOT was really one of the only things missing from the Player Moments option and I was expecting this card to hit some impressive totals… which he did… but not quite to the levels that I would have thought possible. Of course, 25 goals and 9 assists in only 15 matches is a special return to accomplish… but I truly believe with some additional quickness in acceleration… sharpness when finishing (on the right)... and added strength on the ball, we could have witnessed these totals hitting astronomical levels.
This card was always going to dance on the ball with the insane dribbling statistics that come pre-equipped “out of the box”. 99 AGILITY & BALANCE are the key areas but 99 BALL CONTROL & DRIBBLING are only making things smoother … while 95 REACTIONS & 95 COMPOSURE are just about perfect as well. The 5 STAR SKILLS are there for those of you maniacs and all and all everything about this card screams “handful in and around the box.” While defenders are often chasing shadows with this card, one thing that did surprise me was how well this card protected the ball and rode challenges with his 96 STRENGTH playing a big part in this success. Of course, there were still moments that a larger player could have done better, but overall I had zero complaints about the strength given the trade off for the immaculate dribbles you can perform with only the left stick and a dream.
Main Attribute - “4★ WEAK FOOT”
Shooting Rating: 9.5/10
Weak Foot: ★★★★
After a few reviews where the weak foot underperformed and then overperformed, I would say that this card is just about right. Of course, it could be better with a full 5 STAR upgrade but what I mean is that this card felt like a 4 STAR WEAK FOOT throughout the weekend. The easy chances on Dybala’s less favorite right foot still nestled into the back of the net. Some of the spectacular attempts still found the postage stamp, aided by the perfect 99 Shooting statistics across the board of course. However, there were some misses on the right foot that both myself and Dybala would like to have back and really this is the key area that keeps this card from 10/10 perfect status for me. While Dybala is right on the edge of perfection… I think a 5 STAR WEAK FOOT would have seen him dive right over into FIFA GOAT levels.
Value/Coins & Good vs. Bad
Value/Coins Rating: 5/5
Good vs Bad Rating: 5/5
450k is a steal for this card… I just spent a full paragraph talking about how close to perfection this card is… and now I am telling you that he could be in your squad for under half a million coins of fodder in a very grindable time of the game. If you want to put the time in, this card could be virtually free minus your very valuable time of course. However, if you are paying full price you are still getting insane value for this one.
What more can you say to sell this card… The shooting is solid, speed is rapid, dribbling is sublime, physicality adequate and even the passing was spot on throughout the review. I guess that was no surprise given the almost perfect 99 passing statistics in that category as well… 90 LONG PASSING the only section falling short. Maybe just maybe it is the free kicks and corners that put this card into that absolutely have to complete category. The 99 CURVE and 99 FREE KICK ACCURACY were well on display as Dybala added to my free kick tally for this year… while he also whipped in a fantastic ball from corners throughout the weekend… he seriously does it all.
I think this one goes without saying and maybe the addition of Futties Memphis Depay just further highlights the amazing value you are getting with this card. With similar statistics but a one star improved weak foot I would say it is safe to say Dybala edges this one in the end and with a cheaper price tag. Simply a must complete if you enjoyed Player Moments Dybala in the past… or were kicking yourself after missing out on him. With that, we mark an end to yet another year of weekly reviews. I seriously can’t thank all of you enough for tuning in and reading every week from work, from home, from school, etc. I realize your time is valuable and the fact that you take a few minutes to interact with what we are putting together means everything. I truly hope you are all safe and well… enjoy the rest of your summer… the grind starts again soon. As always, cheers for reading.
Played only 5 games with this Dybala at the CAM spot in the 4-1-2-1-2(2). Contributed to 7 goals and 3 assists. He is just insane. Pace is exceptional, Shooting is absolutely cracked with Finesse Shot trait and Outside of the foot trait, Passing (no matter how bad the passing is in this game) is really nice plays great balls through to my Lukaku and Messi (see in squad above), Dribbling is stupid good and I don't even use the 5* Skills, really holds his own with the newly found 91 strength. With being able to get insanely high rated TOTS and other cards, you can make the squads by throwing De Paul and De Vrij for 50K to bump up the rating.
Just. Get. Him.
Skill moves (I don't use them though)
Defending, but he can press decently with the 91 strength
I'm not the best of players (div 5-4 on PC) but this card has completely blown me away. I play him in a 4-2-3-1 with summer stars Lukaku as striker and Dybala as central CAM. The play between them is insane. So far he has 31 goals and 26 assists in 36 games and he only gets better. He is always in the right positions and his movement is incredible, he also has the best freekicks in the game (99 in all freekick stats and pens). I used up almost all of my fodder and it was totally worth it, best card i've ever used, he beats 98 Lukaku in every way except strenght. If anyone is thinking about completing this, DO IT. The only thing he lacks is good heading, but pairing him with a big striker removes this weakness.
I mean yeah, HES INSANE but I've stopped playing until next FIFA now so I don't care that much. But yeah really insane card all round except for links which I think most will find troubles with unless u have a card like CR7 or some Argentinians like Messi, Correa, Di Maria, Acuna or an icon like Maradona. But yeah have a great day, week, year and just know if your playing WL and HATING it then just take a break :).
