FUTBIN Player Review

ShapeShifters Davies Review

For those that know a bit about Alphonso Davies’ career, the nostalgia was tangible with the release of ShapeShifter Davies in the striker position.  During his final year for the Vancouver Whitecaps, Phonzie formed an intriguing partnership with Kei Kamara and showcased the promises of amazing things to come.  While his time as an attacker was largely cut short by his move to Bayern, the eye for goal has always been a weapon for Davies to deploy.  It is interesting that from a FUT perspective, I have read about numerous FUT Managers deploying ShapeShifter Davies at LB, allowing cards such as Cancelo and Marcelo to move central.  For me, this would have completely defeated the purpose of this review, and while I have no doubt it is an effective tactic, I was more interested in unleashing the Canadian at the opposite end of the pitch. Playing the 4-2-2-2 this weekend meant that Davies was able to take up the striker position alongside Aubameyang as the spearheads of my attack… which is how I started the first 45 minutes of each half.  However, with a need to get Insigne and Salah on the pitch, I would make subs for St. Juste and Kimmich at half time.  Insigne would move up top, Salah to LAM, Bellingham to ‘CDM’, with Davies dropping back into the box to box role.  I honestly don’t know if I could say which position I liked the Bayern man in more… As a striker he provided his fair share of goals, while as a CM he certainly impacted my attacking movements.  Regardless, I can say for certain that the MARKSMAN chemistry style worked wonders and truly got the most out of this card.  Davies was the jack of all trades all weekend long in the following squad:

Overall

Pace Rating: 10/10
Dribbling Rating: 10/10
Shooting Rating: 9/10
Passing Rating: 10/10
Physical Rating: 9/10
Defending Rating: 9/10

The .5 in ratings used to be something we did many moons ago in these reviews, but over time the feeling was that they were not as accurate as using whole numbers.  But in this case, I have to make an exception.  Davies is not to the level of our most recent 10/10 in Jude Bellingham, and there are a few factors keeping this from reality.  However, Davies is not a typical 9/10 card, specifically his ability to play so effectively in a variety of positions on the pitch.  Davies has the attacking prowess of a striker, the powerful running and constant presence of a midfielder, and as many managers have shown… The awareness and anticipation of a defender.    

Attacking Statistics

Shooting Rating: 9/10
Dribbling Rating: 10/10
Weak Foot:
★★★★★
Skills: ★★★★
Traits: Flair

As an attacker, I was expecting Davies to deliver, with a slight undertone of, “I’ll believe it when I see it.”  There was no reason for me to doubt a 5 STAR WEAK FOOT attacker with 99 POSITIONING, 99 FINISHING, & 99 SHOT POWER… but I would be lying if I said I didn’t have a voice in the back of my mind spelling out disaster.  With 20 goals in 15 matches, it didn’t take long for all of my worries to wash away as Davies flooded the back of the net with a variety of goals.  Even more impressive is the fact that this total only includes 45 minutes per match as a striker.  If I had my time back I might have been more inclined to leave Davies at striker to see just how crazy his goal total could have been… Perhaps even challenging my Weekend League record this season.  The shooting was of course a key to this success, but without the dribbling, those shots would have been few and far between.  The 99 AGILITY, 96 BALANCE, 99 BALL CONTROL & 99 DRIBBLING all combine with the FLAIR trait and produce some serious magic on the ball.  The tall and slim body type lets you slingshot this card around the pitch and create the spaces you need to put his potent shooting to good use.    

Defending Statistics

Height: 183cm | 6’0
Defending Rating: 9/10
Physical Rating: 9/10 

Having just pointed out that FUT Managers are deploying this card as a left back it is no surprise that the defending portion of Phonzie’s game was well above par.  Even with the MARKSMAN chemistry style applied there were zero concerns.  In truth, I was a little bit worried about the effect of the HIGH | LOW WORK RATE but overall felt that Davies was disciplined in following my Player Instructions while in game.  I do think I would be more inclined to use a GLADIATOR style if I was playing Davies primarily in the box to box role, but again, the 94 INTERCEPTIONS, 92 STANDING TACKLE & 95 SLIDING TACKLE performed just fine.  Mix in the card size and 97 STRENGTH and you have a hundred mile an hour wrecking ball patrolling the center of the pitch.

Value/Coins & Good vs. Bad

Value/Coins Rating: 5/5
Good vs Bad Rating: 5/5

319k.  Nothing shocks me anymore with the price of cards… unless they are going up.  This card is no different and given how effective Davies can be anywhere on the pitch you are getting both a consistent performer and a fantastic asset for bargain bin prices. 

Davies is simply a chameleon that can blend into any position in your squad, but with a lion-like presence.  You can point to the 5/4 … maybe the height … or even the unique body type … but for me, it all comes down to the pace and passing that come standard with this card.  99 ACCELERATION, 99 SPRINT SPEED & 99 SHORT PASSING, all without a single chemistry style application.  For one, they all perform 100% to the level that a card with those numbers should… and two, they allow you to pick appropriate chemistry styles for whichever position you decide is best for Davies in your particular squad.  They make everything tick and certainly bring out the quality in an already loaded card.    

Closing Words

A special card, for a special player, in a special promo.  The ShapeShifter promo is not at the top of my list of favorites, but it is certainly a unique and enjoyable concept that always provides some intriguing options.  Davies is no different and the fact that almost every FUT Manager will have a slightly different position or role for Davies speaks to the quality of both the card and the content.  One criticism of FUT is that you always see similar cards and similar squads… and this promo, specifically this card, can challenge a lot of those status quo selections.  In my mind though, Davies should be played in those attacking positions that his ShapeShift would suggest… but if you are looking to unleash a wingback in other areas of the pitch, I know this card would be up for the defensive challenge.  Hoping you are safe and well.  Cheers for reading.

Alphonso Davies Shapeshifters review


Hello, I am an elite player, 14/16 win merchant in WL and let me tell you, this card should never be under 1m


Saw this beast with high/low and a 5* WF and just thought, goddamn, that's my new striker.


He is absolutely incredible, super jammy in attack, tackles everything, has height and a fair bit of headers and hardly gets outstrengthed by anyone.


Dribbling is super nice, not quite Insigne/Messi/Bernardo Silva level, but one tier below, still great.


Shooting is fairly good, no shooting traits, sadly, and right foot can feel kinda 4* WF-ish on occasions, but not too bad.


Passing is very good, realistically I can't give it 10/10 though, because he "only" has 85 long passing, but I never had an issue with it.


Defending/Physical; Those stats are so absurd to have on a guy with high/low, but trust me, it works wonders, even in attack and you will get SO much jam in the box. And just in general, he's an interception god.


Almost every single thing about this card is a pro, for that price atleast.

Literally just the fact that his right foot shooting can feel a bit funky sometimes.

5* WF DAVIES
By omag, 18-06-2022

A month ago I started using TOTS Alphonso Davies as a ST super sub after messing up my custom tactics which accidently, but happilly, gave him a hatrick and 2 assists in his first game as striker. That same day packed TOTS Salah out of my 80+ pics. My team couldn't fit Phonzie anymore so he had to play as super sub. And when I tell you he didn't disappoint at striker, I mean it. I told my brother, who also plays fifa, that he sould buy Davies and use him at striker to see how good he is, I got made fun of. But little did he know, Davies at the striker position is inevitable.


To start of the actual review, I came back from my last day of school and hopped on to see the new content. I saw a leaked messi a couple days back so i was excited to go see how much he'll be. He was extinct. But guess who wasn't, ALPHONSO DAVIES AT ST WITH 5 STAR WEEKFOOT. All I had to do was buy him and slap him into the team. My 29k weren't enough to get him so I decided to play weekend league and see if I can pack him. I didn't but I did somehow manage to get 500k from my rewards and I instantly went ahead and bought.


I played Davies with the marksman chem style at left striker next to MOTM Mbappe and underthem was TOTS Dybala. I started my first game of champs with the expectation to have a fridge in the striker postition, and Davies. I gave Davies the kick off pass and went on to score the glitchiest kickoff goal I've even seen ever. He pushed off Militao and Marquin(Hoes) like they were some little baby thumb suckers. He felt incredible on the ball and he was honestly very good at the forward runs. I thought his postioning would be a little off due to his workrates, but they didn't seem to matter since he does have 99 Attacking Postioning. His shooting was insane. He felt like he had 120 shot power with his long shots. Even 1st Inform Lafont couldn't stand a chance with his shooting. Davies sincerely felt like a card that has always been striker. He feels like a better mbappe, but he can also play everywhere on the pitch. With 535k I think he's staying in my team till the game ends. Unless I pack Messi ofcourse.
