94 - Premium SBC
5.0
Keeping 95 Ronaldo Out the Team
By cgopie1, 09-05-2021

Just a bit of background first (skip first 2 paragraphs if not interested), I packed an untradeable 95 Ronaldo months ago, and at first he was amazing for me. However, a patch came out about a month later, and since then, the things he was great at for me suddenly wasn't so great. Because he's the best player I have ever packed in any FIFA, I persisted in using him, and whilst he does still get me a lot of goals, he just doesn't suit my general play style.


As soon as the Aguero SBC came out, I figured I just had to get him, as his attributes did seem to suit my play style. About a week before Aguero was released, I had just done the FUT Birthday Vidal SBC, which rinsed a lot of my fodder, and also had to buy FUT Birthday Perisic to give Vidal a strong link in the team, so getting Aguero pretty much rinsed every bit of decent fodder remaining (including a lot of players I didn't really want to lose) as well almost every coin. So it was a really tough decision to get Aguero, but I figured it would be worth it, as he did look like an end-game player.


So this is the squad I put him in, with 9 untradeable players, only Neymar and Bruno Peres having been purchased off the market (https://www.futbin.com/21/squad/8123872). I initially had the gold Alisson in goal, but recently got Ederson in my PL TOTS guaranteed pack so he went straight in. In-game I switch to a 4-4-2 (2), with Aguero as the left-striker. I have him on mixed attack, stay central and normal for the other two instructions. I've tried both a hawk and engine chem style on him, and I eventually settled on the hawk, as he was performing much better for it.


I've mostly played Weekend League (generally get to Gold 3) and Division Rivals 3-4 with him, and this is my record with him as it stands:


Games: 68

Goals: 73

Assists: 52


The very first moment I passed the ball to Aguero in his first game, you could immediately tell there was something different about this card. The animations of him receiving the ball, and subsequently moving with it was just so unique to any other player I've used this FIFA. It felt so smooth and enjoyable just to have him on the ball. He's obviously a bit better with the engine chem style in this regard, but even with a hawk, he is still soooo satisfying to have on the ball.


His left-stick dribbling in general is just amazing, and just seems to be one of those players who can keep the ball even if it feels like the defender has tackled him.


With a hawk chem style on him, his shooting is just perfect, and it shows in-game. Most goals I score with him are by cutting in onto his right foot and finessing it into the far corner. He is so clinical in this regard. However, I did try him out at right striker for a few games, and I don't know if it was just me being bad or something, but shooting across goal wasn't yielding a lot of goals. Either the keeper would make a great save, or he'd hit the post. His near-post finishes were on-point and would almost always score those, but shooting across goal was extremely frustrating.


Probably the thing I like most about him is his playmaking skills. I have him on mixed attack, so he does hold his position sometimes to receive the ball slightly deeper. I have Mbappe on get-in-behind, and Aguero is so adept at sliding in those perfect through balls for Mbappe to finish off.


Just a further point about his mixed attack instruction, he just always seems to do the right thing off the ball. He is available for the short pass when you need him to be, and he's also available for the through ball when you need him to be. I've used 95 Ronaldo and Mbappe, and their positioning is nowhere near as good as Aguero's.


I've already written an essay on him, so I'll draw this to a close, but I could have easily written 10x more about how much I enjoy using this card.


In summary, after decimating my club just to get him, it was 100% worth it.

  • Exceptional finesse shots
  • Amazing dribbling
  • Sensational passing
  • Always in the right position off-the-ball
  • Shooting across goal was a bit off, but it might just be a "me" problem

OvEr PrIcEd-Haha shush

For the clowns who say this sbc is overpriced have no clue what this card is like in game because omg this is a totally different Aguero to his normal card. His movement on the ball is very flush and pacey, he kind of reminds me of Ben yedder on Fifa 20. He finishes almost everything that comes to his feat honestly it doesn’t feel like a shooting downgrade because he buries everything. This card is absolutely amazing and ...
