Neymar da Silva Santos Júnior; one of the most polarizing figures in world football. It seems like there are only two options when it comes to the Brazilian superstar… you either love him… or you love to hate him. Regardless of where you stand it is impossible to deny the seemingly limitless skill that this man displays every time that he touches a football. Thankfully, EA has managed to replicate a lot of Neymar’s best attributes in his virtual persona and equipped 91 Neymar with some serious weapons. If you follow me on Twitter: @IVIaeNine you would have already known that this review was coming and that Neymar put on an absolute show this weekend in my return to Elite after last week's heartbreak. Neymar put the squad on his shoulders and lifted us to success, breaking records for the squad and player output along the way. With 59 goals in 29 Weekend League matches Neymar now stands alone as the Dinamo Parklund all-time single weekend scorer… and was also a big part of the squad record 93 goals in a weekend. Truthfully, I do not see either of these being eclipsed this year, but anything can happen. While I don’t think you can really go wrong either way, I used the HUNTER chemistry style throughout my review and it obviously worked perfectly. I played Neymar as the ST in my 4-4-2 & 3-4-1-2 formations… along with the CAM in the 3-4-1-2 as well. Regardless of your formation, I think it is vital that Neymar be somewhere in the thick of the action… It seems a waste to have that amount of talent out on the wing and receiving only a portion of the ball… when centrally he can influence everything; and influence everything he did. Neymar was the Samba King all weekend in the following squad:
Following suit with his PSG teammate it is a perfect 10/10 this week for Neymar as well. While they are both certainly worthy of the accolades, they find their way there in different ways and for me, Neymar is well and truly clear as the winner of, “who does it better?” There are really no flaws in the card and in my experience, Neymar was not as reliant on smooth gameplay as Mbappé was. Yes, you notice a difference and you do not get the same free-flowing and dangerous card when the gameplay is slow. But you still always have the finishing & passing, which are vital when grinding through the sluggish challenges that you will ultimately face throughout a weekend. However, with 45 goals and 8 assists in the 20 match review I think it is clear that Neymar did more than just grind … he flourished, and now stands alone as the prime Ultimate Team warrior that I have used this year.
The shooting with this card is simply on a different planet than what I have previously used. Del Piero is probably the closest option I have used in terms of weak foot perfection, but there is something different about Neymar. 97 FINISHING, 85 SHOT POWER & 84 LONG SHOTS do not begin to exemplify what I witnessed throughout the weekend. The card doesn’t miss… seriously. Beyond the odd goalie movement by my opponents, I do not remember a clear cut chance not ending up in the back of the net. One of the keys here is not just the 5 STAR WEAK FOOT, but the Outside of the Foot trait. The reason being that Neymar will always just choose the best weapon to get the job done, and time after time the result is a goal. After 5 matches I went back into the statistics and was shocked to realize that Neymar does not have the finesse trait as well because in-game he is clinical with these finishes on both feet and you would swear he is benefitting from the added trait bonus. In the end, that sums up the shooting with this card; it just feels like something else is going on beneath the surface and that leads Neymar to outperform his statistics… and the scary part is this isn’t just with his shooting.
Value/Coins & Good vs. Bad
Value/Coins Rating: 5/5
Good vs Bad Rating: 5/5
This has to be one of the most underpriced cards on the market at just over 1 million coins. I realize that this is a small fortune to some FUT Managers and that there are some “cheap beasts” available… but with Mbappé at 1.3 million, this card is a steal. I could talk about the quality of passing that goes hand in hand with all of the other weapons with this card… but instead, I will say that Neymar delivers even better statistics… 10/10 Fun. Even in the poor gameplay, even against drop-back-Danny… I had fun every match just seeing what this card would produce next, which is worth every coin in itself from my viewpoint.
If this card had 80+ PHYSICAL it would not be unfair. Honestly, the 50 STRENGTH with Neymar is all that is keeping him real at this point. In-game it takes a lot of effort to actually lay a finger on this card, but when you do, the reward is the ball nine times out of ten. The one out of ten is when the game has decided that you must lose and somehow Neymar outmuscles your VVD and fires a missile into the top bins… not that this has happened to me before or anything...
While the price tag will be astronomical, I am almost hoping we do not see a special version of Neymar for some time. It seems like everyone and their dog are already rocking some of the most foolish teams I have come up against… and it is November. The last thing I need is my opponents adding a special Neymar to their lineup of Mbappé, CR7 and Cruyff. What I do need, is to reiterate just how fantastic this card was and shine the spotlight on a card that truly hits differently than anything I have used in FIFA 21. Neymar brings the goals, brings the flair, brings the fun, and brought the quality needed for an Elite return for my squad. He was the push I needed to progress in my results, and I know he would do the same for you. Cheers for reading.
I was lucky enough to pack this beast in a 50k objectives pack, scoring 100 finesse goals. But where can I start? This man is so incredibly good. He is agile, fast and his finishing is absolutely top-notch. At this stage of the game Neymar even feels better than he was in FIFA 20 but that's also because defending is extemely hard. But the Brazilian main man glides through every defence with such ease. Thanks to him, I won every placement game n Div Rivals. And his record speaks for itself: 18 games - 31 goals & 15 assists. I play him as a CAM behind Memphis in a 4231 formation and the free roam suIts him well. Game changer.
Grab a coffee and enjoy the Review of DJWAGGY!!!!!!!!!!
So, first of all: I'm not english, I'm a german Kartoffel, so don't cry about my grammar please.
I normally finish WL Gold 1/Elite 3. I TRY to play the game for fun, not for sweating my a$$! (obviously most of the time not fun to play, but play it anyway because I'm stupid)
I don't pay a single penny in this game, so I usually don't have the coins to buy all those heavy meta players for one team.
The only way I earn some money is by collectin WL rewards, which are sh** most of the time :)
Whatever, in previous Fifa Neymar have been the best card to fit my playstyle and brings the most fun.
Same in this year!!!!!! Outrageous how beautiful he is!!!! YEEEEAEEAEAEAAAH!!!!!
So consdering his price which is 800k, this is the best value for money player that comes to my mind.
Before him I got Douglas Costa RB (who plays very similiar) because he was very cheap considering how good his stats look.
But something was missing against all those 0815 Varane Mendy Gomez Walker defence. By the way what about trying to be some more creative???
We all know how hard it can be to play against those 4 if you don't have those special players.
But then I said myself FU** UP, sold my team and bought this MOTHERF****!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And let me tell you, he is in my opinion the best offensive gold card in the game!!!
QUICK!!!!! SKILLY!!!! FAST!!!!!! ROCKET SHOTS!!!!!! 5*5*!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! DRIBBLING GOD!!!! and the most important: FUN 2 PLAY!!!!!!!
There is absolutely no problem to stand in front of Varane, stop the ball, Slap Varane, crawl between his legs, slap Varane again and then hit the ball with a Rabona in the top left corner (after that obviously slap Varane again after that beauty of a goal)
You might be able to hear out how much I hate to play against Varane!!!
So let's come to his Pro's:
94 accelaration, nothin more to add.
He'll be faster than every defender on the pitch!
And yea, ALSO FASTER THAN VARANE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!(!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!)
Phenomenal! Most consistent Shooter I've played this game.
Bangs in every Shot, no matter how bad the angle is.
And of course the 5* WF helps a lot.
Not to forget the outside foot shot trait.
Sometimes if I don't know what to do, I just shoot and he decides by his own what to do with that situation.
Right foot, left foot, I also scored a Scorpion kick with him.
I also scored a goal with his third leg!!!!!!!!!!
I play him in a two striker formation, so the tiki-taka is obviously great with him by looking at his passing stats.
I also played him at CAM, where i could feel the 90 vision.
Sometimes takes passes in gaps where not even myself saw one!
So nothin to cry here AGAIN!!!
Oh, and sometimes also played some passes with opponents Varane, who was too scared because of the slaps so he assisted to Ney.
We all know what it means to play Neymar.
GOD TIER DRIBBLING!
The best in the game probably.
So smooth, fast, just spitzenklasse to play him.
5* skills makes him even more dangerous in front of the goal.
Very often opponents Varane left the pitch injured because my Neymar made a pretzel in his legs.
Honestly, just crazy how fast you can skill, twist and turn around the defenders like they are nothing!
It's just so unpredictable to suspect what he is going to do in front of the goal.
This might be one of those aspects that makes opponents cry and quick sell there Varane's.
And even with bad servers (like often, VERY OFTEN!!!!!!) he plays the smoothest on the pitch.
So now you might know that he's is the best dribbler out there in this game.
I play him on stay forward to create the game, not to stop the opponents attackers!
So I won't tell you anything about the defending.
But he sometimes steal the ball out of Varane's pretzel legs.
So, many said that he would be too weak.
Yeah, he probably is not the strongest. But that might be also a fact why he plays this smooth and quick.
So in my opinion, he just got the perfect Body Type/strength, to match his other stats!
Sometimes Varane try's to shoulder him... BUT THEN HE JUMPS OVER HIM TAKE A SH**T ON HIS HEAD AND DANCES IN THE CAMERA AFTER SCORING ANOTHER BEAUTY OF A GOAL!!!!!!!!! So no Problem with this one.
The only weaknes I would say is his stamina.
He always plays 90 minutes for my badge, but sometimes he can be a little tired after 80 mins.
But honestly, he can play anyway, just because he feels the same dangerous in the penalty area!
So by ending this Review, I can tell you: BUY THIS CHEEKY CARD!!!
800k is an absolute joke considering Mbappe is still 1.2M.
Will probably stay in my team till end of Fifa 21 if I don't break all of my controllers till then!!!!
STAY SAFE, buy him, smile and try to enjoy the Game once again, after there are too many stupid things that makes you raging like me.
Neymar Jr. Where do I start. Packed this geezer out of a Rare Mega and DANG he is a game changer! I used him in a 4-3-3(4) at the striker position and he will not stop scoring. Sometimes I need sub him off because he has already scored a double hat-trick in the first half and need to at least give the other team a chance. Neymars high price of over a million at the time of writing this may be expensive for some but trust me when I say he is worth every single cent. I would recommend Neymar to anyone that had good pack luck and has enough to buy him. At this point he is one of the best cards in the game. With Neymars 5* 5* He can skill an entire defense and then bang one in from anywhere in or outside the box. After packing out of a rare mega (Tradeable) Im not even considering selling this geezer. He has made my team from a F on that random math test we weren't expecting to a A+++ on that really hard test that everyone was dreading.
He will bang them in from anywhere
He can Skill an entire team
He will always be in a good position receive a pass
He can bang in free-kicks
He will change your life
Being very expensive but he really does deserve his high price.
