Player Review

84 - Rare
4.5
Pretty Good RB and defensive RM
By angelocruiz, 12-11-2020

With the all around iffy players for RW and RM for reasonable prices, when I saw that RuleBreakers Ocampos, knew that would be a lock for me at the right flank. Since I have had a PL squad due to packing Auba, bought this cheap Jesus Navas with a shadow to green link at a pregame 451. This man exceeded expectations, defending pretty well against speedy left wingers and not holding back against strongish strikers. His 39 strength is a bit of an issue, but I'd say he feels like a 60 strength in game, even without anchor or sentinel. On the offensive side, his long passing isn't the best, but he can beat other players off the dribble quite well, and has good short passing and crossing, and passable finishing, being able to score on a few finesse shots and strong cross shots, coming in clutch on the Kounde objectives. His stamina kind of sucks. If you put him on stay back, not using him at his full potential, he can last 90 well, put if not, or if you use any kind of pressure tactics, he'll start to be unusable at the 75-80 minute mark, having to deal with it or subbing in someone else (Florenzi or Atal work pretty well).His weak foot is pretty bad, but doesn't do much damage on the short passing and dribbling. If you accidentally long pass or cross with his WF though, you are pretty much giving away the ball. Used him mainly as a RB at a 41212, but sometimes as a CDM on 352 and RM on 352. Wouldn't recommend as CDM, but works pretty well as a RM, like a poor man's RTTF Atal.

J dawg

I packed J dawg from the La Liga upgrade player pick and ever since then i had discovered a profound love for him. No matter who's on the wing, J dawg will gap them with his 97 acceleration in game stat without a boost. Yes he may get bodied from time to time. However, his defending, pace, bodytype, dribbling and 4* skills make up for it all. He's also a monster when it comes to interceptions and tackles. Never failed to im...

LaLiga Kante

New Freeze card and I was a bit disappointed when I saw him because he is short and I already had Kounde, but then I realized that he had very good stats and was almost like a Kante. So I decided to change him in game with Herrera RTTF. Yes he is good but it was putting him at CB or using Navas at CB, which I dont think it would be the best idea because he isn’t tall. And actually I liked Herrera RTTF, and Navas was a bea...

Tiny and Useful

Have a full La Liga squad with Aidoo and Varane at CB prior to this beast. Did the SBC for free due to having tons of untradeables from SBCs throughout the holidays, so it was cheap for me. I understand the complaint for his height, but his agility (81) and balance (84). Compare that to Varane who has agility (62) and balance (39). Basically, you miss a tackle with Varane and whoever you're playing is through on goal. Not t...
