Wow, this card is insane. It's unbelievable that it only takes an 85 squad i.e. a bit of fodder, to complete this best. I'm an Elite Player but don't play too much, so I usually get to Elite by the end of the season by playing here and there (don't play enough in Elite to say skill rating but I think 1900?). I really haven't played that much this season, so was in Div 3 after last season reset from Elite > Div 3. I played 10 games with Defoe across the top of Div 3 and all the way through Div 2 (had the 2x since I wasn't losing lol). Now onto the review.
I used Hawk on him to boost pace, nearly max out shooting stats and give him a little extra strength. I don't see how another chem style could be better, unless you are a big dribbler. I barely notice but he has 86 dribbling, seems higher (above 90) but Engine could still max out pace, give better long passing and increase dribbling. I think it would be a bit of a waste since agility and balance are so high, but feel free to use that if you like to skill and dribble all around your opponent.
He is so agile on the ball that it's really hard for opponents to knock him off. He also has 80 strength, which helps with aggressive defensive players. His shooting is the cheat code. With Hawk, almost everything he puts up goes in with ease. Somehow even shots that seem close to the goalie still go in, which I've never seen before in FIFA 22. Finesse is automatic and I haven't missed an open weak foot shot yet, seems like 5*, not 4* (could be because his shooting stats are just that good honestly).
I ended up going 9-1-1 in 11 games with him and genuinely don't know if I can replace him unless I pack a crazy TOTS striker. I packed TOTY Lewandowski and I was so pumped. Unfortunately, Lewa was clunky and not up to par with what I was hoping for. He's still on my bench but I rarely sub him in unless I need to score a crucial corner or something. He's not terrible, there are just so many better options. Defore is what I wished Lewa was when I packed a TOTY - fast, agile, amazing shooting, strong, good dribbler, great body type. I feel better about the Lewa flop now that I have Defoe at this bargain price. He's fun to play with and decimates all defenders and goalies. Hope you guys do him and have a blast!
Incredibly quick and agile
Longshots - I hit more bangers with him than anyone in the past few FIFAs. Finesse from outside the box is deadly if you have even a glimmer of space.
Strength on the ball
99 aggression with Hawk, so he makes great runs and never gives up hustling in the offensive half
Stamina - could last all game most games but he would sometimes be at 60 stamina by 70' if I was being really aggressive on offense, even then I would rather keep him on with low stamina because he's such a game changer
Long passing - barely noticeable but he missed a few long through passes to the opposite striker making a run
One of my first reviews on here and I'm looking forward to writing this one about Jermaine Defoe. Amazing card and Amazing price
.. Pace - He feels extremely fast when receiving the ball and accelerating away from the defenders
. . Shooting - I don't even know where to start his shooting is extraordinary, especially his finesses, get it onto his right foot and whip one into the top corner they always go in ITS AMAZING
. Dribbling - His agility is amazing with the ball and his balance is of huge importance and it doesn't disappoint, he feels silky with the ball when you stop and turn and do cheeky skill moves with him.
. Some passing - Obviously no card is going to be amazing at everything, however, Defoe isn't far from it so i'm going to be picky and strict. Some of his short passing can get intercepted easily due to lack of power however normally is great and the lofted through balls usually are ok. But his passing isn't amazing
. Physicality - Again he isn't a defender so i'm gonna speak about his defending and physicality too much but can get shrugged off the ball quite easily, unless you accelerate away from defenders which you can usually do
Wow. An amazing sbc released by EA, and this guy is literally a cheat code at 65k. He surprised me a lot with his finishing and freekicks, and having him upfront is amazing. his short passing is still good, which helps out with that extra pass. He is super fun, and good for any Tottenham past and present. I have used HM Chiesa and Fut Captians Quagiliarella, and this guy is better with a cheaper price point, is fodder is used. Even with that 4*4* combo, he still is a demon
OMG! He is easily one of the best cards in this game and an 85 squad is a bargain. I played him at striker along side POTM vinicius junior. As a combo they are just so good together. They both scored a total of 11 goals in 5 games and thats not all thats good about him.
I wanted a rapid striker that has good shooting to replace fb neymar and then this card was released when i first saw his stats i was stunned so i decided to start using him in my team i play a 4-4-2 or 4-1-2-1-2 (2) ingame the 4-4-2 is more attacking less defending and the other one is the opposite, i used him with a hawk and played him along side mkhitaryan fb and sometimes along side ronaldo potm and he was absolutely amazing i managed to score every single game with him because of how good he is with composure and shooting
I am not incredible at fifa and i don't play in div 1 (i play in div 6) but i saw the Jermain defoe sbc and thought i had to do it. I completed the sbc and tried him out in squad battles and he outplayed everyone. He could take it past defenders with ball rolls and roulettes and he knows how to put his boot through it. One of the key factors for me is his passing. Some of the through balls he played to the wide players were brilliant for a striker and his free kicks are class. He outpaces everyone aswell. He is one of the cards i have had the most fun with.
Hi guys, when I saw this sbc I immediately completed it to honor my Fifa 13 career mode legend and I can only say WOW! This card is incredible, he's super fast and his agility makes him even quicker - his shooting is cracked ( he doesn't miss in front of goal).
He's very cheap so, if you haven't already, I sincerely recommend you to complete this insane value sbc!
I think that the best chem style is hawk
SHOOTING ( he's sooo good at finishing + has nice finesse)
Pace (even faster than what it seems)
Agility - balance (thanks to the body type)
Weak foot (his left is kinda strong)
"headers" (he has good heading accuracy and jumping stats, but be careful, since he's short, you have to be experienced in headers)
This Defoe SBC is a MUST DO! I used him on my first owner RTG account in fut champs and he was CRAZY in my very first match he scored 3 by only half time! This card is such a cheap beast nearly every time I shoot with him he scores he is a fifa god.
So I decided to try this new card, which looked OP by lokking at his stats. And I don't regret doing it. He's being amazing with me, scoring a brace almost every matches. For 85k, it's clearly an OP card.
I'm Division 2 in Rivals btw.
Great Stamina with amazing Balance and Agility.
Good pace for a div 3 card
Deserves his EOAA card.
Amazing finition when it's not a finesse shot.
Finesse shot trait : don't feel like it's real, he miss every finesse shot.
