Farid Boulaya - 89 - TOTS Moments SBC
5.0
The Algerian Prince
By beaniedpr135, 29-04-2021

Introduction: Where do I even start, I only needed 3 games to make this review, he was absolutely insane. I used a hunter on him to max out his pace and boost his finishing. Played him ST in a 3-5-2 alongside Reus, moved him to CAM for the last game, he can play either for sure.


Pace: With the hunter, blistering speeds and his body type accommodates that, he was easily outpacing Varane and Mendy. Not much else to say here really, 10/10.

Shooting: This was a weird one, his stats are mad and don’t get me wrong, he can finish but in more of a striker way, his longshots were lacking a bit, he aint no Muller or Reus but anything inside the box is in, easy. 9.5/10

Passing: Great passing, nothing lacking there, no chemistry style needed. Long passing is very solid, he makes the pass 9 times out of 10 and the double tappies are crazy good. Curve is great for finding those tricky passes and even helped me out with the shooting, I used him over Reus on my short FKs and I even scored with a player on the line, fantastic stuff. 9/10

Dribbling: This is where it gets saucy, he is crazy responsive on the ball, some meta players have super high agility + balance but low everywhere else in the dribbling stat, Boulaya is built different, he turns super-fast and keeps the ball at his feet. The 5* SM have allowed me to make some CBs look a bit silly. 10/10

Defending + Physicality: He is a CAM, trash defending obviously, 86 stamina is definitely enough but I did see him getting pushed off the ball quite a bit, but that’s a given with this card for sure. 3/10

WF/SM: 4*/5*, not much else to say, near perfect and the skill moves are silky smooth, Boulaya just wants to make the world silky smooth. 4* weak foot wasn’t really noticeable, but did show sometimes, rarely though. 9/10

 

 

Conclusion: Absolutely nuts card, pretty cheap for his level, I beg you guys to do this card if you have a Ligue 1 squad, you probably wont find a better CAM for this price. Thanks guys for reading my review, I hope it was useful, a like would be massively appreciated, thanks :).Introduction: Where do I even start, I only needed 3 games to make this review, he was absolutely insane.

The Algerian Neymar - The Improbable Atal Link

Youcine Atal is one of the best players in this game. This man, for one 86 rated squad, provides him with an end game strong link. If you do not have Atal, I'm going to be honest, save your coins. If you do, this is one of the best values in the entire game. I play a False 9 433, and have been running Mbappe and Atal as my LW and RW, respectively. Their role is pretty simple, beat fullbacks by any means necessary and shoot/...

Fun Cam for The Price

So, people are pretty upset because their dreams of a POTM Neymar got crushed and this Boulaya card is here instead, sure he is no Neymar but he is a fun card that is basically free. Pace 7/10 sure with a hunter his pace is good but it's not extraordinary so he gets a 7/10. Shooting 6.5/10 his shooting isn't really very good at all, finishing is very average but he will put away...
