Player Review

90 - FUT Birthday
4.5
Absolutely World Klaas
By Yes24, 28-03-2021

Okay. I know this review is quite early, and I have only played 10 games with this card. But I would rather give a generalized, slightly inaccurate opinion on this card, so you can decide on whether to complete it before the objective expires.


So take this review with a pinch of salt.


For reference I play him on 9 chem with an engine on him, and the squad attached is how I set up in game. I played all 10 games in Division Rivals., where I'm in Div 6.


Anyway, with the disclaimers and housekeeping out the way, this is my review of FUT Birthday Klaas-Jan Huntelaar.



Shooting:

He doesn't miss. And with 98 finishing as a base card stat: you'd hope not. Shooting is arguably this card's most important feature, other than the 5* Weak Foot. And speak of the weak foot; well, in short: he doesn't have one. I purposely made him take shots on it, and you can't tell the difference. 93 volleys aint bad either, but there is a small hole in this card: long shots. They aren't bad per se, but they are often saved by your average Alisson or Nick Pope. I have Player Moments Memphis Depay who handles the long shots, so I only tried a couple with Huntelaar. Overall, if you give Huntelaar the ball anywhere in the penalty area: well, just skip the celebration.


Dribbling:

Okay, Klass aint no Neymar, but it gets the job done. The 3* skills obviously isn't ideal, but its not bad. He does feel slightly heavy on the ball. but provided you partner him with a more agile player (Rashford, Neymar, Mbappe, Ronaldo, Depay) it not that big of a deal. Nothing special in the dribbling department, but as I said: it gets the job done.


Physical:

He's a bully. Even up against Varane, Gomez, Van Dijk: with ease. Many a time he's sent Klaiber, TAA or Ferland Mendy to the floor with a shrug of his shoulders. I'd say, without his strength. he'd be considered average and I'd only do him for the fodder. But as it stands, I think his strength and overall his physical stats are the second best, after his shooting of course.


Passing:

Nothing special.

Pace

You know what they say: Every silver lining has a cloud. He's just not fast enough. Well, to be fair, he's certainly not slow; but he will easily be outpaced by Varane, Gomez etc. However, if you don't force him onto the ends of through balls, and instead play him as a target man, pace shouldn't be an issue.

Robben's two footed brother

Yeah so basically for a while I've been looking for a player that can fill the void left by Robben's departure from my team. I have found him. He can be clunky at times but is fixed with an engine but I used marksman because I prefer just to get nutty finesse goals. As a striker he has good positioning makes amazing runs and if you don't really care about skill moves this card is a must. In terms of finishing in the box, o...

Klaas Jan Huntelaar, worth it?

Klaas Jan Huntelaar is probably one of the best Strikers in the Bundesliga, except of Hwang Hee Chan, Halaand and Lewandowski TOTY. Probably you cant´t compare him to Meta Strikers like Rashford or Ronaldo. He isn't very moveable and not a dribbler. I played him as a Striker in the 4231. And FOR ME he did what he had to. He w...

The Shooting Dutchman

I've only used him for one game (Division 5, scored a hat trick before halftime of a rage quit) but was so impressed I had to write this review. He is a wonderful addition to any Bundesliga squad. He is not the fastest but his shooting is deadly. The shot power reminds me of in-form Kent (from this year) or one card from last year (I can't remember which one but it was an objectives card, maybe Aspas???). The ball just come...
