284. That is how many reviews I have completed for FUTBIN. To be honest I am not really sure what to do with that, as it all seems so long ago that we started this journey. In truth, I was waiting for review 300 to bring it into the limelight but was forced into it by Moussa Sissoko. Why? It was not until article 284 that a card under review received a red card. In fact, it is going to add another column to my tracker as in the past I had only kept track of yellow cards. The prior record? Article 64 - a review of Third Inform Paul Pogba in FIFA 19 in which he also received two yellows but in separate matches. And with that, Fantasy FUT Sissoko became a record breaker in all the wrong ways. It is worth noting that they were perhaps two of the softest yellows in the history of the beautiful game and I wish I would have saved them for the video. In any case, records were made to be broken and there is a lot more to say about this card beyond the bad luck. With the knowledge that Sissoko would be patrolling the midfield in front of my backline this weekend, I applied the SHADOW chemistry style to help the big man get around the pitch. The CDM in the 4-2-2-2 formation, a position that was absolutely made for the Frenchman and I was hoping the added protection would lead to an improved defensive record this weekend. Sissoko was the man mountain all weekend long in the following squad:
If you have used Winter Wildcard Guendouzi or his more expensive upgrade in RTTF Renato Sanches then you have experienced the benefits of a quick, agile, yet defensively solid option in the midfield. TOTY N’Golo Kante might just be the epitome of this style of player, which is certainly a FUT Manager favorite in FIFA 22. However, for those managers that are in the camp of a bigger body patrolling the midfield such as any of the Viera variations, then this review is for you. For myself… NIF Fabinho and then his Winter Wildcard have both done a job for me this year and was hoping Fantasy FUT Sissoko might carry this forward with his recently upgraded card.

I had an idea of what this card would feel like in game and was not going to be surprised by his pace and power in the center of the pitch. Until I was. The ground that this card can cover when hunting down opponents is insane and certainly did justice to the 99 SPRINT SPEED. I actually think some opponents were caught off guard and therefore caught on the ball by Sissoko’s pace. The 86 ACCELERATION was generally a non-issue as I never really needed Sissoko to run away from, or after opponents from a standstill, his constant motion with the MED | HIGH work rates a key detail. When I did track down opponents it was easy pickings as the 99 STANDING TACKLE & 96 SLIDING TACKLE made short work of the majority of opponents, with the 98 STRENGTH bullying some of the most physical of opposition… a run in with TOTY Lewandowski and the ease in which I dispossessed him was a massive eye opener. When not destroying attackers in the tackle Sissoko was just as menacing with his 96 INTERCEPTIONS, as the Frenchman’s massive frame aided in picking off opponents' passes before their attacks even got going. With all of these quality statistics, it could have been undone if Sissoko didn’t have the engine to influence the entire match, but the 93 STAMINA was just about enough to keep the big man moving through 90 minutes and beyond.
I would be shocked if anyone is buying this card to produce worldies at the attacking end of the pitch, but it is worth noting that Sissoko did chip in with some quality attacking moments during the review. Interestingly the 95 SHOT POWER felt effective despite a lack of real support from the remainder of his shooting statistics. While I wouldn’t want the ball on Sissoko’s foot to decide a match in the dying minutes, he wasn’t awful. However, the area that Sissoko did aid the attack was his ability to carry the ball at pace through the midfield. A large majority of my opponents struggled with his pace and it did open up backlines with goals coming later in the move.
Value/Coins & Good vs. Bad
Value/Coins Rating: 5/5
Good vs Bad Rating: 5/5
480k feels like the perfect price for this card. I am not sure I have reviewed many cards that I could sit there and think, “what is this card worth,” and then see the same number staring back at me on FUTBIN. 500k is exactly what I would have said was fair and the 480k feels like a small discount.
One more detail regarding the statistics with this card comes in the form of Sissoko’s passing. For the most part, I was quite impressed with the feel, accuracy and pace of the 90 SHORT PASSING & 87 LONG PASSING when using this card. On a few occasions, I did feel that the 79 VISION was impending some of the cross field balls that I attempted and is part of the passing rating in the end… but for the most part, I was more focused and impressed with Sissoko’s ability to find the feet of my attackers in dangerous positions after yet another powerful run through the middle of the pitch.
This card all comes down to preference. If you enjoy the bigger style of CDM in your midfield, as I do, then this card is a dream. Not quite the level of Viera but also not quite the price tag either. Again, the perfect price for what felt like a near perfect card in that CDM protection role. I am not entirely sure where my ‘everyday squad’ is going in the near future, but the link to both French and EPL players has me considering using Sissoko for the foreseeable future in the CDM role. If you have used Sissoko I would love to hear how he is performing for you so far in the comments. Hoping you are safe and well. Cheers for reading.
After using Gold Kante as a CDM in 4-2-2-2 and 4-2-3-1 for over 500 games, it was time for a change. While powerful meta CDMs are rarely affordable, my pack luck took a turn as I packed untradeable FUT Fantasy Moussa Sissoko. As a lifelong Spurs fan, I have always dissed Sissoko and hated on him, but in Fifa, there are very few players who are as OP as him for the CDM position. This year is no different and Sissoko is the epitome of a bulldozer in the midfield, destroying everything and everyone in his path. Using him as the stay back CDM in 4231, he was on the prowl every game with tackles and interceptions as he bossed the midfield and shielded my defenders so that they didn't have to get out of position. I was surprised to see no reviews for him when I packed him, so after trying him for 20 games (Division 1) I thought I might as well talk about my experience a little bit. For 450k he seems slightly overpriced at first glance, but with the potential for upgrades, he might be a steal. Watford have 3 easy fixtures in the next 5 and Sissoko has scored twice in his previous 5 games. So 90 or 91 seems like a safe bet. I used him with a shadow which seemed perfect for his role.
His defense and physical prowess was expected, he literally wins every 50-50 battle, ngl. His defensive position is excellent, but if you miss out on a tackle, his aggression will leave your defense uncovered. So maybe don't go with cut passing lanes if you're scared bout that. His agility and balance are low and tbh he isn't the best player to progress the ball with, but his excellent passing makes up for it. I think if a Defensive CDM can pick a perfect pass on the counter or for ball progression, he is COMPLETE. Kante couldn't do that for me but Sissoko is so much better at that. Even with low vision, his passing is phenomenal for ball progression. He even got 4 assists for me without ever really coming near the box. I guess 3 star skills are a con, but for me his role does not require trickery. The only noticeable downgrade over Kante would be in game acceleration coz I could feel he was struggling in some cases to chase down strikers. But if you have a decent starting position, you'll be good. All in all, Excellent card with almost definite upgrade upside. Will provide protection to the backline.
Disclaimer: My players play other positions ingame, I run a 4-1-2-1-2 (2) with the following players: Desailly (CDM), Sissoko and Aouar (CM), Fekir (CAM). That also means I don't play him in his original position, just because my other CM Aouar is already quite attack orientated so I wanted this player to be kind of an allrounder with a slightly defending touch. Sissoko fills this role PERFECTLY.
I have tried several alternative players before. Quite a long time I played with Capoue and Aouar, then with Kanté and Aouar but this combo just tops everything.
Sissoko surprised me from the first match with his pace compared to other CDMs I played before. The positioning is absolutely better than most of the other CDMs and since I told him to stick to conversative interceptions he is also not too aggressive. His reactions are good, but I would strongly advise you not to play him as a defender. His acceleration is not the best and he is not the best jumper, but hey - we are still talking about a CDM....
Comparable to Kanté he wins almost every Tackling Duel, which is not only the outcome of this strong physis but also due to his awareness and positioning.
It might happen that I fuck up something in attacking situation but 80% Sissoko is exactly where the ball is going, even if the opponent plays a long crossing pass.
I try not to involve him too much in my attacking game but every now and then I let him run foward after doing the pass and whenever he gets the ball back he has his final pace which is not bad at all. Seems like good ol' Moussa takes a while to get his km/h ;-)
Awareness / Positioning
Pace (compared to other CDMs)
Aggression a little too much if you don't give him the right instructions
So, I'm a lifelong Watford fan (and my liver has taken the brunt of that burden). In this horrendous season, there has been one player who quietly and consistently has done his job without any fuss, and that's Moussa Sissoko. I liked him when he was at Spurs and I love him now. So I HAD to get this card when it came out. I definitely overpaid for him, but thinking about it now I would've paid more for this card. I play him at CDM in a 352, the squad is linked.
HE IS SO GOOD. If you're any good at reading the game he's really good at intercepting passes, he's so strong that he just eases opposition midfielders off the ball, he can distribute it well as well. I've even been able to dribble through midfields and defences with him, using roulettes primarily, and inside the box his shooting isn't awful (compared to the card stats). Obviously, it almost goes without saying but his tackling is second to none as well, I've even considered playing him at CB but it's hard to displace the 3 I currently have back there (Captains Mings, Headliners James, Flashback Varane).
It's not a perfect card; he has misplaced a few long passes for me, and he is quite clunky due to his massive size. But I can definitely deal with that.
Dribbling (for a big man)
Plays like he's got a trunk in his shorts
Slow to accelerate (but rarely use him to sprint anywhere so it's not a dealbreaker)
