Player Review

Worth the grind

As soon as I saw the new Championship milestone cards, I just knew I had to do them instantly. This is only my second review, so I'll try my best, I might also do reviews on the two other cards that you could recieve. I've played this card in four different positions (RAM, CM, CDM, RM) and I've preferred him in the CM position so far.

Pace 9.5/10

He is incredibly rapid in game, and it feels so good to have a player that quick, able to go both up and down on the pitch. His pace might not be the best when playing him higher up the pitch, but it still works incredibly well, so nothing really to complain about here.

Shooting 7/10

His shooting is good, but he isn't exactly the best when it comes to consistent finishing. The best thing about his shooting is the shot power, the finishing and Positioning is kind of meh, but if you play him in the CM/CDM it won't be something that you notice a lot, but when he's attacking, this might be a bit of a flaw, so I'd recommend boosting his finishing as much as possible if he's playing as an attacker.

Passing 9/10

There isn't really something special about his passing, long and short passing is solid, and so is his vision. The only flaw with his passing is probably the curve, but it didn't really bother me.

Dribbling 10/10

He is an incredible dribbler, good agility great balance, just overall great. There's really nothing to say here.

Defending 6/10

He can defend, which is the best thing with this card. Even though almost all his defensive stats are in the 70's, he still does a solid job. He isn't Kante or anything, I'd probably compare him to Bruno Fernandes, and his cards are usually very expensive, so this is a good option.

Physicality 8.5/10

He's very solid here too. The worst thing about it is probably the strenght, but I've not noticed it too much. The 93 aggresion is what I think helps him the most when playing CM. The stamina is the biggest flaw with the physical. He only lasts about 75 minutes as a CM, but if you use him as an attacker i think that won't be a bother

Overall 9/10

This card is so fun to use. Especially with the other championship players in my team. I think it's a card worth completing. It took me arounf 2.5 hours, and I don't feel like my time was wasted at all. It's a great option for variaton. I used him on only 8 chem, and on 10 chem, he will probably be even better. If you want something different, definetily do him.

Messi on crack

He is just amazing. I played him as CM and ST.He played amazing as an ST, he is insanely quick and does some awesome passes. Also, his dribbling and finsishing is cracked. If you slap an Marksman on him his FK are also awesome.Something that really impressed me are his physics, he holds the ball like nobody else, it is very hard to get the ball from him. He did not really stick out as a CM but wa...
