Hi, this is my first review ever and I'm pretty happy to do it on this beast. I'm Italian and I'm a Roma fan, so I'm like the complete opposite of Klose, but I always liked him for his style of play and for the great person he is.
I needed a top goalscorer in the 4-2-3-1 formation and a few days ago I could finally afford him. I usually do gold 3/2, but thanks to him I managed to do gold 1 for my first time ever!
In 30 WL matches, he scored 74 goals and also had 13 assists, he's unreal, this man finishes from everywhere, with both left and right foot, and my God how good his headers are.
With hunter, he really hasn't got any problems in terms of pace, when you play a through ball he even manages to keep the advantage facing players like Joe Gomez or Kounde rttf.
A very important thing that helped me a lot in difficult games is his combo of positioning-jumping-headers-volleys. Often when I faced very good opponents, I struggled in finding a way to create chances but thanks to Miro I simple crossed the ball in the box and he jumped scoring goals after goals, if he's in a decent position and you do a good cross, it's gonna go in, he also bullied Van Dijk for me in this weekend, there's no defender that was better than him in this occasions (obviously you don't have to spam crosses, you have to them at the right time in the right way or else the defender is gonna get the ball, but when Klose is in the right position and it's a fifty-fifty you're gonna get the ball).
He obviously doesn't fit the meta, but if you like this kind of players, he's gonna pay you back every single coin you spent on him, believe me, you won't have any regrets.
Hope this wasn't boring and good luck!
pace: with hunter he's got no problem outpacing most of the defenders
shooting: simply perfect, inside the box, outside the box, volleys, headers, weak foot, power shoot, pens. He can do everything but I don't recommend to take finesse shots outside the box
passing: not a big deal, but the simple short passes he had to do were right
dribbling: he's not a meta player so you're not gonna go on a skill run trying to go through everyone, but he felt good on the ball and with some stepovers, fake shots and ball rolls he can dribble anyone, if you want him in your squad learn how to do them.
physical: godly jumping, can play for 120 mins and also showed a good strength ( can easily shield off quite any defender)
a bit of agility
long passes (but I didn't do lots of them since he was the one running into the box)
I really stagnated on my old team and needed a new one. Because I got ripped of by EA a lot the last Weekend League I told myself f*ck it : I wont sweat for the win anymore. I started to make a team with players I love/loved to see playing in real life.
The first player that came to my mind was Klose, my absolute childhood hero. From the last Fifa parts I knew he was never meta but always fun to play with.
And let me first say, I don´t think he is the right choice if u need fast players that outrun Varane and co. If you play Klose you have to know exactly how to set him in scene.
I know an Engine would fit him better, but I went with the Hunter to max out his speed.
He is no Mbappe, but his Sprints are quiet decent. He wont be able to outrun defenders like Gomez or Varane. But if you play the right pass and get behind the defending line, he is fast enough to not let the defenders get closer.
He will not be able to put the ball in from outside the box. Thats something I realised really quick. BUT if you reach the penalty area....ITS SIMPLY OVER. This dude (as long as he is in the box) gets every ball out of every position in. You could do a blind headstand and he would still put the ball in, absolutely amazing imo.
He isnt very agile, wont turn fast and wont dribble out your opponents defender. But thats simply not how you should play him. Nevertheless : his ball control is quiet good, and you wont have problems keeping the ball with him.
He wont knock out Van Dijk but no defender was able to bully my Klose away from the ball. Yeah, Varane and Gomez might outrun him, but they wont be able to take him down.
The only downside is his heading. I remember him from 20 as he was better then CR7 in terms of heading, but this year it isnt notable that his heading stats are nearly 99.
For me, there was no header goal or even a dangerous header by Klose. It didnt bothered me because I dont do crosses a lot.
Defending : he is no defender and he stays forward as I told him
