87 - FUT Future Stars
4.0
Worth the Grind?
By Ibo1115, 15-02-2021

Let me preface this by saying I have no life. I don't need to be railed with insults saying I have no life now. I acknowledged it, alright?


The objective was super easy; squad battles is super easy. I just put the footy on while it was happening, and when it wasn't I watched some basketball and Paul Hollywood's City Bakes (cracking show that). It was rather a boring experience, but anyone that has ever done an objective in squad battles knows the tedium. I really liked playing with the 84 cm Cucurella that I played as a cam, so in game I played this guy as a cam with instructions to come back on defense in a 4-1-2-1-2 that I threw together. His stamina allowed this to function brilliantly, and he was able to get forward and come back with no problems. His passing is exquisite, and for the couple of games I played with him as an outside mid because I didn't do custom tactics and I didn't change positions in game, his power crosses were beautiful. Power crossing is quickly becoming my favourite way to play; it's super satisfying when you get it right. His pace as a cam is great, but as an outside mid I would probably boost that pace with an engine (I used a basic). His finishing is decent: about what I expected, and since he's left footed it's easier to beat your opponent because everyone tries to block the right foot (I expect this isn't the case in higher divisions and against better players, but for my div 4 experience it was a welcome benefit having the left foot). I don't do skills, but I'm sure people that love the two skills that they know appreciate the 4*. His 4* wf felt like a 4* wf, but I never bothered to use his right since I could use his left. He feels pretty good on the ball, and his body type and height are perfect for the meta of this game (this doesn't stop him from feeling like a truck during bad gameplay. I mean, seriously, I feel like players are moving at the speed I move in my nightmares). Defending wise, he's average, but his almost Gullit Gang status was too tempting to not try him with come back on defense. Physicality is meh, but he has great stamina. In conclusion, if he is a player that is going be slotting into your starting xi, you must either like Getafe or Cucurella, be new to the game, or you must have a life and you haven't been playing this unrewarding game to the extent of not needing a card like this. If you are going to play FIFA, you might as well do this card for a free 82, 84, 86, and 87 that you can chuck into an SBC later, but I recommend you avoid loading up FIFA at all and go enjoy the life that you have. We have a finite time on this earth, and there are better ways of spending your time than grinding 6 or more hours to get this card (like playing FUT Champs ;) ). I appreciate you reading through all this nonsense.

Squad Battles

Linkablity I guess

4*4*

Good stamina

Almost Gullit Gang

Left Footed

Squad Battles (6+ hour grind - don't do it in one sitting. TAKE BREAKS)

Not quite Gullit Gang

Not 5*5* French with 99 everything

Gameplay is dead

For some reason beginner level CPU on squad battles can actually pressure you and steal the ball now, so you have to do the fake shot thing which still works for whatever reason

Cheeky little cucu
By TommyBlu, 16-02-2021

The big question, is he worth the grind? Tbh i gotta say yes. The card took me about 2 hours with a break in squad battles and he wasnt hard to get it just took a while. I like the card alot he is really nimble and agile and has great shooting. in game i play him cm and hes brilliant. creates chances, makes plays. He also has great attacking ai, he knows where to go and when.

Better than I think!
By Koerni, 16-02-2021

When I first saw his card, I trouve I don't need this card until I saw the defensive and physis stats. He's perfect to swap a winger to a midfielder. But I can say the perfect positions are CAM or CM I tryed him as an CDM and he's perfect for my team because I play a double CDM with a Strong and agressiv CDM in Herrera and now a technical CDM in Cucurella he is also good in the defense but the strenghtes are for sure in the offensive. Another thing I realized were the longshots he made but you shouldn't make a finesse shots you can really make a very strong shot and he made many of those in the right top corner.


-If you want a winger he's not that good I think but you should try him out first.


-Maby you can also play him as a left wing back in a 5/3/2 Formation


Before I played him I played LLorente and I must say hes better because of his dribbling. Llorente was better in the defense but today I can say I like it really that he makes the runs to the

penalty area. Another thing I noticed were for sure the key passes before a other player of my team make a assist.


After all I can say try him out before you have an opinion.

Absolute beast in midfield
By MythicalOli, 24-02-2021

As soon as i saw this card i knew he would be great in midfield so i had to get him.


I must say, he was definitely worth the grind!


I tried him out in WL (gold 2) and I played him as a lcm in the 41212(2). His passing is amazing, very rarely misplaced a pass and was confident in playing risky through balls with him. His shooting is also very good- scored 5 goals and 13 assists in the 30 games. His long shots are very good and i scored a couple worldies with him. He feels pretty fast and was good on the ball and dribbled past players quite easily. He made a lot of interceptions and was in a lot of good positions defensively, and was quite strong.

Cucurella cracked striker
By Pakigaming, 01-03-2021

welcome to my cucurella review. So first when I saw him I thought its nothing too special for the grind but while I was on futbin I put hunter on him and he looked like cracked striker and thats just what I needed so I decided to complete him. The grind was exhausting but I cant tell you its 100% worth it I play him st in 4-1-2-1-2 narrow and he is sooooooooo goooooooooood. Put hunter on him so you can max out his pace and really boost that shooting and when you apply to hunter to him he will have insane positioning, finishing, shot power and volleys he really reminds me of Daniel James. He also has really good agility and insane balance overall dribbling is amazing for st as well passing and physicality is really good as well especially 97 stamina so you dont have to sub him off in any point of the game. But the best thing about his card is amazing defending for striker, baisicly if someone loses the ball he can take the ball back ihn the danger area and score the goal thats how I usually scored goals with him
