87 - FUT Future Stars
4.0
Worth the Grind?
By Ibo1115, 15-02-2021

Let me preface this by saying I have no life. I don't need to be railed with insults saying I have no life now. I acknowledged it, alright?


The objective was super easy; squad battles is super easy. I just put the footy on while it was happening, and when it wasn't I watched some basketball and Paul Hollywood's City Bakes (cracking show that). It was rather a boring experience, but anyone that has ever done an objective in squad battles knows the tedium. I really liked playing with the 84 cm Cucurella that I played as a cam, so in game I played this guy as a cam with instructions to come back on defense in a 4-1-2-1-2 that I threw together. His stamina allowed this to function brilliantly, and he was able to get forward and come back with no problems. His passing is exquisite, and for the couple of games I played with him as an outside mid because I didn't do custom tactics and I didn't change positions in game, his power crosses were beautiful. Power crossing is quickly becoming my favourite way to play; it's super satisfying when you get it right. His pace as a cam is great, but as an outside mid I would probably boost that pace with an engine (I used a basic). His finishing is decent: about what I expected, and since he's left footed it's easier to beat your opponent because everyone tries to block the right foot (I expect this isn't the case in higher divisions and against better players, but for my div 4 experience it was a welcome benefit having the left foot). I don't do skills, but I'm sure people that love the two skills that they know appreciate the 4*. His 4* wf felt like a 4* wf, but I never bothered to use his right since I could use his left. He feels pretty good on the ball, and his body type and height are perfect for the meta of this game (this doesn't stop him from feeling like a truck during bad gameplay. I mean, seriously, I feel like players are moving at the speed I move in my nightmares). Defending wise, he's average, but his almost Gullit Gang status was too tempting to not try him with come back on defense. Physicality is meh, but he has great stamina. In conclusion, if he is a player that is going be slotting into your starting xi, you must either like Getafe or Cucurella, be new to the game, or you must have a life and you haven't been playing this unrewarding game to the extent of not needing a card like this. If you are going to play FIFA, you might as well do this card for a free 82, 84, 86, and 87 that you can chuck into an SBC later, but I recommend you avoid loading up FIFA at all and go enjoy the life that you have. We have a finite time on this earth, and there are better ways of spending your time than grinding 6 or more hours to get this card (like playing FUT Champs ;) ). I appreciate you reading through all this nonsense.

Free

Future SBC food

Squad Battles

Linkablity I guess

4*4*

Good stamina

Almost Gullit Gang

Left Footed

Squad Battles (6+ hour grind - don't do it in one sitting. TAKE BREAKS)

Not quite Gullit Gang

Not 5*5* French with 99 everything

Gameplay is dead

For some reason beginner level CPU on squad battles can actually pressure you and steal the ball now, so you have to do the fake shot thing which still works for whatever reason

Imminent Free Card Fraud Trait (all free cards have it, it's just a matter of time until Cucurella comes down with a case of the inconsistencies)

Cheeky little cucu

The big question, is he worth the grind? Tbh i gotta say yes. The card took me about 2 hours with a break in squad battles and he wasnt hard to get it just took a while. I like the card alot he is really nimble and agile and has great shooting. in game i play him cm and hes brilliant. creates chances, makes plays. He also has great attacking ai, he knows where to go and when.

Not the best, but still very useable

Ok, whilst i am not the greatest fifa player ever (div 5 or 6) I tend to be good at writing reviews on players. I am aware that this CM Cucurella is not the best version, but i feel like i should write a review to satisfy people looking for information on the card. Whilst the objective only came out about 18 hours before writing this review, i've had a good opportunity to use him. He is very good as a box to box player as h...

Get him now

Let me start of by saying HE'S INSANE. He is honestly a brilliant player. If u dont want to play on for the 87 this version will certainly do the trick for u. I've used this guy for 8 games in rivals div 1 2195 sr and he is amazing. I'm using a finisher to boost his shooting and dribbeling and I play him at striker in 4222 alongside future stars david. His dribbeling is so good, he feels like messi for me. His shooting is a...
