Was not planning to do this card at all since it got leaked out, but WOW this card has amazed me in surprising ways. So, Payet has been vital in my squads FUT Champs campaign as he's played 12 games scoring 9 and having 6 assists. Doesn't seem much but he's scored a hattrick and contributed in so many ways such as being the main playmaker in the middle of the park. He's the CAM in my squad which I play a 4312 with him, Mbappe, and Diatta up front which is the craziest attack I ever had in FIFA. The man is a literal God on the ball being so agile and smooth with the dribbling, the finishing is just pure class, slap a hunter on him and he's fast as hell, and with having the upgraded weak foot; not fair at all. People will question his body type being stocky, but literally there wasn't a problem with him being stocky. He would use his stockiness to his advantage shrugging off defenders easily and then leaving them in the dust banging in a nice finesse shot in the top corner. A good value SBC to do for a top quality player. I definitely recommend him since he's easy to link with and is a great player.
- Pace w/ Hunter
- 4* 5*
- Stocky body type even though it isn't a problem
- Maybe workrates
I’ve only got a few games in since he just came out but, seeing the initial hate this card is getting, I felt obligated to report that his shot is absolutely broken, especially on one time shots and breakaways. It’s a full tier of shot power higher than my Socrates. You can’t even track the ball, you just see the net move. 4 star skills is a let down but his step overs and fake shot croquetas are as smooth as they get. Free kicks are lethal. Physicals and WH are something to keep in mind but just stick him and CAM and the WH seem to play in his favor and let him last 90 minutes. Strong links too so if he fits in your squad and you don’t need to burn fodder stashed for the Sanches SBC I think he’s a stud at a great price.
Shooting is top notch.
Passing is class, he gets some cheeky animations.
Not rapid but he’s shifty enough with 4* skills. Gets a lot of separation on fake shots.
Super fun to use and that makes him an end-game CAM for me
Physicals. Not sticky enough to just teleport through defenders like Neymar can
This card is great and fun to use. I did his card out of necessity in order to have a link between Neymar and BPL players. I didn't have very high expectations, but overall he was quite impressive.
Pace- He feels quite quick with hunter and does well in running in a straight line. He doesn't feel electric quick, but it's just enough for the CAM position.
Shooting-His best attribute. He hits absolute rockets from anywhere! Free kicks are amazing with him as well. the 5 star weak foot also helps to shoot whenever you want. The very slight downfall that keeps his shooting away from perfection is the lack of finesse shot trait. Also, the high low work rates make him very aggressive in finding shooting positions.
Passing- KDB like passing from this card. With the 5 star weak foot, he plays amazing passes to anyone you need, especially through balls.
Dribbling-It's good but not great. Due to his build and going with hunter, his agility can feel lackluster in games, especially during bad server delays. His actual ball control and such are pretty good, but change of direction and going past players like Neymar is more of a challenge.
Physicality-Quite great due to his build. He's able to hold his own on the ball. Although, he's short and won't win any headers.
Overall I'd give him an 8.9. He's best used in a central position behind the forwards, since he doesn't dribble well on the outside due to the agility and build. Although, he is very good in shooting and passing and is great with the 5 star weak foot. He helped carry my team to elite 3 for the first time this year.
-5 star weak foot
-physical strength and stocky build
-movement while running
I’ve only got a 25 game,but, seeing the memories this player brings me back, I felt obligated to report that his card is absolutely broken, especially his shots and passes. You can’t even track the ball, you just see the net move. 4 star skills is amazing and his step overs and fake shot croquetas are the best I've seen this year. Free kicks are lethal. Strong links too as he is french so if he fits in your squad and you don’t need to burn fodder like for the Sanches SBC which I think he’s a stud at a great price.
MAYBE HIS BODY TYPE, NOT AS SMOOTH AS I EXPECTED.
The streets will not forget this man in the Premier League. I saw this Payet card and knew I had to do him. I did him for free, but it took a heavy toll on my fodder and I was skeptical at first, but oh my word. This card is insane.
PACE: I obviously used a hunter on him, and that put him at 97 Acceleration and 94 Sprint Speed. The pace is top tier and only is a problem due to his stocky body type. Sometimes he does get caught by Varane or Mendy, but on the counter attack he is deadly.
SHOOTING: With a hunter, Payet has a rocket on both feet. He hits things perfectly and his outside the foot shot trait also help a lot. His finesse shots are very good even without the trait. His 5 Star Week Foot is also crucial and makes him unpredictable due to the many tricks he has up his sleeve, like outside the foot shot trait.
PASSING: With 92 Passing, he should excel in the CAM role, but sometimes his through balls were questionable. Other than that, pretty decent passing and nothing special, although the 92 curve is very nice.
DRIBBLING: With a stocky body type, you would expect him to feel somewhat clunky, but he feels very responsive, but not on the level of Player Moments Dybala, who played at ST ahead of Payet. Only after the 70th minute does his stamina have a real affect on his dribbling and his stocky body type is mainly why. His skill moves are also great, especially the ball roll.
DEFENDING: For a CAM, his defending is crazy. When I would turn on team press, Payet would slam into people and win the ball back, mainly aided by his stocky body type. His defending is very poor, but his ability to press is second to none.
PHYSICAL: His Physical is average, and his stamina is great for the wing, but not for CAM. I think he also feels relatively strong due to his stocky body type, but he obviously doesn’t have that slippery style that Neymar or Moments Dybala have.
Overall, I love this card. I would recommend doing him, but only if you run a Ligue 1 or French team, or for an emotional connection. If it was slightly cheaper, this card would be a must do. In short, this card is so good I had to make a FUTBIN account to review him to share the power this SBC has.
-Stamina (in the CAM role)
