Surprisingly Useable
By YoutubeSkyro, 02-12-2021

After 3 games in Division 2 rivals, I learnt a lot from using Gary Lineker. As explained in my youtube review, he feels very similar to Haaland. 3 Star skill moves and 4 star weak foot isn't perfect, but, it certainly isn't terrible. Lineker finished the 3 games with 4 goals and 2 assists in a 442, with the hunter chem style.

Before we get into the pros and cons, let me just say that I did enjoy using him. Some of the goals he scored were very satisfying and truth be told, I expected him to be absolutely dreadful, but he was surprisingly useable!

Now lets get into the pros and cons...

Pace - Yes, 84 pace doesn't look like much, however, with the hunter chem style, he was surprisingly fast! The hunter chem style ups him to 94 pace and it certainly feels like a huge improvement!

Shooting - This probably doesn't come as much of a surprise. 92 Base finishing is outstanding. When paired with the hunter chem style, it goes all the way up to 99 and it doesn't disappoint!

Positioning - Right place, right time. Lineker makes valuable runs through the middle of the pitch and if you are a possession or a long ball user, you'll still benefit very nicely from his fantastic positioning!

Composure - Gazza has 88 composure and it shows. He rarely missed any clean cut chances, even when under pressure.

High / Low Work Rates - Strikers who have H/L WR very rarely disappoint when used correctly. He often pulled CB's out of position, allowing me to exploit the space with my other striker or my Wingers. Great Stuff!

Passing - Ooh boy... This is my biggest drawback with Lineker. There were multiple times where Lineker attempted to make a vital pass, in order to create a clean cut chance, and the end product was woeful. Either not enough power on the pass, or, simply not anywhere near his teammate. Grrr many chances were lost due to this.

Agility + Balance - My rule of thumb is to avoid more than 3 or 4 touches with Lineker due to his 81 agility and 78 balance. I typically used the agile dribbling when in the box to help with his responsiveness in turns. It certainly helped, but he was no Messi or Mahrez. (Obvious I know)

Aggression - This one also really grinded on me. Once a defender made a tackle on Gary, he very rarely put up much of a fight. More often than not, a defender could run In front of Lineker and walk away with the ball with relative ease. This bugged me because Lineker hasn't got great dribbling. So getting away from defenders isn't very easy.


If you want to see him in action, feel free to check out my video on YouTube :) Thank you for reading!
