99 - FOF PTG
Outrageously good card
By FuriousDemon, 01-07-2021

My player pick luck strikes again... I pulled him in the TOTS or PTG pick and immediately had to fit him into my team even if it meant benching my beloved Griezmann. I'm using him as the center CAM in a 4231 formation, replacing prime Zidane. This Firmino is a noticable upgrade.

Pace 9/10: With a hunter, he is very fast and I'd recommend that chemistry style until/if he gets his next upgrade. He's up there in pace, but not a 10/10 due to his body type and height holding it back a bit compared to other players.

Shooting 10/10: I would give this an 11/10 if I could. Out of every player I've used this year, he has the best shooting. The shot power is crazy and he seems to finish 99/100 shots that are on target. Simply amazing.

Passing 8/10: Like Griezmann, his passing isn't anything to go crazy over. There's nothing bad I can say about it but it's not TOTY Bruno or KDB level.

Dribbling 9/10: Firmino doesn't appear to have the "sticky trait" but his dribbling is very, very good. He rarely loses the ball when around or in the box and is one of the best dribblers in my team.

Defending 7/10: His heading is not as good as I expected, but makes up for the defending stat with his defensive ability. There's not many CAMs or STs in this game who can basically come back and play CDM.

Physicals 9/10: 84 strength is a lie. It's atleast 95 and I'm guessing this feeling has to do with his unique body type. You cannot outmuscle this guy; only the very, very top teir CBs have a chance. He can just run at defences like a truck and nobody can body him. 99 stamina is obviously ideal as well.

Is he actually overpriced?

I did this SBC because he looked like an insane midfielder. I have used a lot and even some icons and I can confirm he is the bets Midfielder I have used, CM, not CAM or CDM. And yes he is really expensive but I wouldn’t say that he is really overpriced considering you can use fodder and make it a lot cheaper, plus for me I have felt him better than Pogba RB, and In Xbox he is just around 30k more expensive, but in PC and...

This Man Lives in the Matrix

The best feeling I have ever had with a player on FUT was 2013 TOTY Marco Reus. For 7 years, cards have tried and failed to live up to the sheer joy playing with that Reus provided. Until now..I was lucky enough to pack tradable Firmino from one of the hybrid nations SBC. After seeing his price on the market, I was very tempted to just cash in as I have no real love for the player in real life. But i decid...

A well priced versatile quality card

I agree with first review on here, the card is exceptional, he works well at cm, cam and cdm but swap between chem styles for what suits you, I enjoyed engine and Hunter at both cm and cam and powerhouse and shadow in cdm, probably anchor to. Stay back cdm does waste his attacking benefits but it’s just so versatile that he’s class at 4/5 positions there’s always a way to move him about. Links are great and can’t sa...
