Just a beast!
By rzdlvy, 07-05-2021

So let me start off by saying this man got me transfer banned in march bc I needed him for a separate team to get Thiago full them as he had two red links etc.. and I've got to say, It doesn't bother me whatsoever, I have used Guardiola for 158 games now and consistently he is amazing. This mans recovery speed is ridiculous! He will win tackles all the time and he feels absolutely solid and you may be thinking he may be clunky but oh no, I will reassure you due to his height he is actually very smooth on the ball. I usually play him as my central centre mid in a 4312 and for where he plays I have no complaints. He's always in position, he makes the tackles, he makes the passes, he runs the midfield, can have a cheeky pop at goal here and there and most of all he is not slow! I really don't have an issue with this card whatsoever and I don't think you would either and for 80k on xbox currently what's not to like?

Pace

Defence

Dribbiling

Being a god

Stamina

Physical

Passing

Yet again being a god.

At times you may be able to feel his strength let him down, but it is a rare occasion.

I'd suggest not shooting from anywhere outside of the box.

guardiola the tank!

i've used this man for 20 games so far and i think he is one of the most underrated icon cvm's in the game, and why you may ask? because this man's defence is so good, i think he is one of the best tacklers in the game. his standing tackles are so good. its on vieira and mathaus level.also he hase 78 pace but with the shadow he keeps up with most attackers, he also doesn't look very agile but i actually don't ...

A Genius on the pitch

At first, i just bought it for the chem, and then just buy a better icon, but after i tested him in the weekend league, he surely will stay on my team.I thought he is so cheap because he will not be good in-game, "maybe the stamina, the pace, and strenght" are poor, but in-game, he didn't feel like that...

Gonna keep it short

Yeah... I got him out of my mid icon pack.Gotta say I wasn't TOO disappointed at first cause he looked okay.I'm a div 2 gold 1 player and I have to say this card is lackluster, in this stage of the game his stats don't hold up and he's gonna bring you more bad then good.Not really his fault and his prime might be a tad better then this one, but the mid just lacks the stats in the right areas to even be ...
