When I picked up Erling Haland I was more then skeptical, I had started my WL poorly and was currently 6-10, the aim was to get gold 2, but quickly changed to gold 3 after such a poor start in the 4321. I was struggling to score consistently when I got the chance, so bringing in an out and out ST was something i thought i needed, and this time, it payed off.
Pace- Erling Haland runs like he's a semi trailer, get him in a straight and he will beat the defender, but if he's running with the ball at his feat, he is not the man for you. If EA change the game so through balls are not very effective, then Haland isn't going to be the guy, but as it is he's amazing. using a player behind him who can play a great through ball, he's guaranteed to score some goals.
Shooting- Insane. I don't know what else to say on this, give him a chance on his left, and he will score it, and I'm going to be honest, I thought he was right footed for a little bit, that's just how good his finishing is. he doesn't miss
Passing- His passing is solid, it wont blow you away, but if you need a hold up ST for some of your CAM'S/ other St's to get in behind, he ahs good enough passing to do, i did play him with an engine on 8, so that may have slightly swayed this.
Dribbling- his weakest point, like I said in pace, this man cant turn, in a straight line he's good, and his first touch is solid, but he cant turn to save his life, I find myself having to either add an extra skill move or make an extra pass to get him into a good space to shoot, but because of how good his shooting is, this is only a slight problem, but he definitely won't be for everyone.
Physical- Haland is massive on the field, and it shows, he wins headers well and can create a lot of space for other players by holding the ball up, or bullying a defender in a chase, this is what he is great at.
Overall he is great, definitely not for everyone, but if you accept him as a brutish ST who is their to score goals and be a target man, then he's amazing, but if you want him as a false 9 then give up, he's not going to do that for you.
Pace in a straight line
The guy is insane. Give him half a chance and it's a goal. Playing Reus and Brandt behind him who can just send him a great ball through. Shooting is so powerful and accurate, very strong and quite quick for a big man. Can't go wrong with buying him. 170K is a very good deal
Dodgy dribbling sometimes
He is so good : finishes nearly everything and bullies the defenders away. Feels much fastet than 86.
He is also much better than immobile ( i tried it bc somebody recommended it)
everything else is just okay
