Allan Saint-Maximin - 83 - IF
5.0
Mr. Gucci Goat Maximin

People call him the cheap Neymar, but he is even better. He splits the defense of your opponent like Messi did to Boateng in 2015. He is faster than the Flash and got more skills than Sean Garnier.

?This man is absolute madness. His pace is out of this world, his dribbling is on point and his passing is great too. He is not an Akinfenwa in words of strength but to be honest he doesn't need it. He passes by defenders so quickly, he is untouchable and because of that his strength is not a necessity.

You would think his shooting is mediocre or below average with just 70 finishing but it's the opposite. Slap a chem on this guy which gives a boost to his shooting play him as a striker and you are gucci.

He will give you more hattricks than matches played. Jokes aside he is a real game changer, because of him I enjoy FIFA 21 like the golden times in the past. The times Doumbia, Gervinho and Ibarbo were like MSN. I play him as a (left) striker in the 4-2-2-2 formation next to Werner IF. Compared to Saint-Maximin, Werner is a good player but not as great as Maximin is. He is about 300K coins right now and he is totally worth it. Try to pick him up ASAP because he will lift your game to the next level.

Allan Saint-Maximal Pace!

I packed Saint Maximin so i figuered that I had to write a rewiev. I was looking forward to try Saint Maximim's FIFA 21 base card, and I was thrilled when he managed to make he's way to TOTW. Saint-Maximin is just such a smooth player! He sends the deffenders one way and the chop hi's way the other way. Finishes with both right, left AND FINESSE!

For 350k he is a bit overprised, beacuse he will dropp to around 150.

I thought i never feel a diffrence between his normal gold and if card but it it is a huge diffrence the pace and dribbling feels better and the shooting is enough for a winger.

STILL among the best
By Xertalz, 09-03-2021

I got this guy untradeable however many months ago. In all that time since, I have used tons of wingers (Neymar, Rashford, El Shaarawy, etc.). This guy is STILL my favourite. Another example of a card that is just way better than the stats suggest.


Pace: 10/10

Obviously.


Shooting: 7/10

Biggest issue with the card. I use a deadeye which puts the shooting up to a decent stat, but that's just a chem style boost. If you're in a decent position it shouldn't be a problem, but he'll miss the occasional 1 on 1 and won't be much use outside the box. 4* weak foot is nice.


Passing: 8/10

Very good passing for a winger. I'm never really in a situation where he needs to play long passes, but i'd assume those likely wouldn't be the best. More than good enough as a LF here though, which is where i've mostly used him.


Dribbling: 10/10 (15/10)

10/10 is the maximum I can put on here. I would give him a 15 if I could.

If you played FIFA 18 you will remember Romain Alessandrini's inform cards. To this day that is still the best FIFA card I have ever used. His dribbling, in particular, was absolutely broken, and he was probably the best card I have ever used on the ball. I've used many many good cards over the years on the ball, including even TOTY Messi last year. Why is this relevant? Saint-Maximin is better on the ball than ALL OF THEM. Good gameplay, bad gameplay, it won't matter. His card is unbelievably responsive. Also, you know, 5* skills. At this stage of the year, it's pretty much essential. Elasticos with this guy work wonders. Cannot say enough good things about the dribbling so i'll just stop there.


Defending: 3/10

I'll just give it a three. You're not using him centre back, who cares.


Physical: 6/10

Stronger than the stats suggest, but still not strong. Stamina gets to be an issue if you go past 90 minutes, and a slight problem around the 75th.


After 534 games with this guy, I can conclude he will likely not ever leave my team unless he gets an 85 IF.

Honest Review of Saint Maximin 1st IF
By MrDrPenguin1281, 05-11-2020

Il make this quick and honest, as a ST or a CAM he's great, but as a winger he's not worth it. He is just wasted out wide and I mainly tried him as a winger but played him a few games in central positions and the improvement from central positions were great. His pace and dribbling with his 5 star skills is beautiful and applying a deadeye gives him alright shooting and decent passing.

All I can say is if you want him playing CAM or ST or maybe if your wingers get involved in goals, but in my opinion he is wasted as a winger especially as someone who costs 300K and you get other players for cheaper such as Son and Sterling
