I'm sorry if my english isn't perfect throughout this review, i'm Dutch myself.
Joshua Kimmich, what a card. Since the beginning of the game i played with his normal card, which i upgraded to his IF. I really enjoyed his IF and when i saw this TOTGS-card i had to get it. So I bought him in put him in my squad next to Kante. I use kimmich in a free role which means he shows up in front of goal from time to time. Because of his high attacking workrates he gets a lot of assists for me and he also scores some goals.
Kimmich is a bargain for how good he is. He is very agile and his dribbling overall is phenomanol. His passing is outstanding and he has a very decent shot as well, especially from long range. He bullies attackers off the ball, his defending is so good. Kimmich has everything and for this price you guys should definitely try him out.
Kimmich playing for Bayern Munchen and being German he has very decent options to link with. I use him with the new objective Coman for example.
- Defending: his tackles are outstanding.
- Passing: every ball he passes ends up by one of his teammates.
- Dribbling: he turns with the ball so quick, which helps in the attack.
- Stamina: this guy can run the whole game long.
- Pace: his pace might be a con for some people, but its not. With a shadow he bosses the whole midfield.
- Links: some people might think he hasn't got enough good options to link with. But the bundesliga has some very nice defenders.
So first of all, I'm sorry for any grammar mistake guys, I'm Brazilian and I'm still learning English. Anyway, let's get started. I don't know about you guys but I've been really frustrated with this game lately because all we see is the same backline with varane, mendy, gomez and walker, and in the midfield, it's always kante, or renato sanches, those type of players, so i decided to start using players that we don't usually see in people's squad, like Kimmich. When this card released, I looked at the stats and I got shocked. I know that people don't like having a cdm with high attacking and medium defensive work-hates, but this guy controls the midfield trust me. His pace with a shadow it's pretty decent for a cdm and his defense with 94 aggression is CRAAAZY. I'm a division 1 player so I'm always facing cr7, mbappe, neymar, and this guy can stop all of them. If you're looking for a cdm that will never miss a 1v1, have great agility and balance, and awesome passing, this is the one. You don't need to pay like 360 k for kante when this guy is literally 140k cheaper and is just as good, if not better than him. I hope that you, the community, will stop try to build the most meta team, and instead, start to use the players that YOU like and love. Try to use haaland, sancho, douglas costa rule breaker (he's very good, strongly recommend him) and you will still win and enjoy the game. I played kimmich along side with my gravenberch storyline (the little gullit) in the 4231, and I'm not thinking about changing them at all.
defense (never miss a single tackle to interception)
Work rate ( It's not a really big of an issue if you put him to stay in the back but it would be better if it was high in defense)
heading/jumping (just like kante, won't win the air balls)
pace (with a shadow he's being very good for me already but isn't crazy)
