Veteran goes mad for Hero
By FootballGuru, 02-10-2021

About the reviewer: FIFA player since 1993, not a year missed. FUT Founder. No points this year except the 4600 - i trade a bit. Plays on Xbox new gen.


This card looked too good to be true-it was however very true.

.

I picked him up about an hour after hero launch for 363k, Mendy, Oblak, Million-toes, Lllorente and De Jong had to make way but the coin pile is already under construction for returning them to the nest.

Thus the somewhat weak team you will see him in via the URL.


Opted for a Hawk which led to:


PACE:more than enough for new gen meta

Acc:87 Sprint:90 - Feels responsive, quick off the mark, quick over the ground, nice stride and keeps running till 90th (See stamina) 9/10


SHOOTING:Top notch.

Positioning: 97 Finish: 97 S Power:99 Long S: 96 Volleys:88 Pens:93 - Power felt like Roy of the Rovers stuff - expected the net to break once or twice. His positioning was A1 and missed only one clear chance in the handful of games i have used him (mixed rivals and world class single) The one miss came off a volley from 12 yards or so. The ease he glides off cb's with on corners is astonishing. Longest shot i tried was around 32 yards and it flew in versus 85 keeper on World Class. 10/10


PASSING: Adequate.

81 on the short passes is around what you'll need, felt good enough, had no occasion to try long passes yet barring one cross which did not reach its back post target. This guy needs to be central and the focal point of your attack- he leads my 4 man diamond of 3 cams and a striker (Mid Nakata, Fekir and Modric behind him) If your doing a "Harry Kane thinks he's a cam" stuff then this is not your card.


DRIBBLING:Smooth

Well rounded and the stats felt better than their face values. Everything green here with the standouts being Reactions:87 Composure: 87. The lowest is balance:74 but felt more like 85 - no issues were had 8/10


DEFENDING: Woefully red, but not his job right.

Will give him a four on the strength of the fact that thanks to 96 heading acc in combination with 99 jumping he will clear the odd corner safely for you. 4/10


PHYSICAL: This man has had his porridge and spinach.

Jumping: 99 Superman stuff, Stamina: 85 - has not tired at all in any game yet, Strength: 95 will brush off most Cb's - wrecked Million-toes with anchor in two online rivals games Agression:84 - wont shy out of stuff - more than adequate rating. 9/10


THE OTHER BITS: All good here

6 foot 1 - ideal ST territory. 4 star 4 star - felt great on weak - finished clinically on all attempts, flair pass came off, flair finish came off and some nice jinks. High medium feels absolutely fine and will use his physicality to pressure lost balls in opponents half thanks to the medium defence. Stamina will keep him doing it for 90 mins.

The trait power header is incredible on this guy- an utter dominator in the air and your corner goal tally will go through the roof, he gets his head on pretty much every ball you aim for it.

Only other trait is A.I chip shot.

5 goals in 3 games on rivals so far


Better than icons in the 600k plus price range by some way, possibly the best early season special card ST i have ever used.

Head of the class in shooting, heading and positioning, Out and out ruthless number 9 -Headers insane , shot power insane.

Would happily pay the double of his market price.

Rock solid option till TOTY at least or Mbappe pack.

Green links to all La Liga cards.

RTG material for those with that penchant.

Buy it, use it, Love FIFA 22



None really, unless your playing some kind of weird tiki-taka total football and need your ST to do things he should not be doing. Possibly price at this stage of game for the average player could be a struggle but he is worth every penny.

Please sir, can I have some Morientes?
By Firebrill, 11-10-2021

FIFA 22 is a hard game to score goals on. I am currently in division 2 and the amount of games where it would be 0-0 at half time and end up 1-0 or 1-1 is crazy.


That is... until I bought this beautiful Spanish man.


It seems like this year the gulf in price between cheap meta and top meta is crazy - players like Mbappe, Neymar, Ronaldo are still crazy expensive, but your regular low tier meta players are so much cheaper (Martial, Yedder etc). This makes it very difficult to make upgrades to your squad without buying a million coin player.


This is one of the reasons why Fernando is so good, being at 'only' 300k (which is very obtainable for RTG like me). For his price, I cannot see anyone better. he has completely transformed my team from one that struggled to score into one that bangs in goals for fun. The shooting stat is VERY important this year. Your striker has to have high shooting if you want to score consistently. This is a fact I discovered once I started using Fernando. Put it this way, that Spanish flag is not the only thing Fernando is carrying.


Morientes finishes everything. Keepers are no longer OP when facing the power of this mans shots. Scoring inside the box is no longer an impossibility, and of course Fernando can smack them in with both feet, both power and finesse, from 30+ yards. Now lots of people will look at his dribbling and immediately laugh at how I 'don't understand the meta' - to them I simply laugh and proceed to roulette Lacroix and smash it past Casteels. Morientes (with an engine) feels incredibly responsive. With his shooting being so good, he only needs to create a tiny bit of space to score with either foot, and he can do this with ease. He performs skill moves fantastically (mainly roulette, stop/turn, ball roll, drag back) - his height actually helps him perform skills better due to longer strides.


Another extremely important attribute is physicality and heading. I play a 4-3-2-1 with Morientes as the focal point, and quick wingers either side. Now I am not a cross spammer, but this Spanish behemoth wins every header, and has turned corners almost into penalties if your opponent does not move their keeper.


Lastly, and the most noticeable thing about this card, is his POSITIONING. I have never seen a striker make such intelligent runs, make little movements to find space and receive a driven pass. His pace is incredible, and outstrips the face card stat by a long way. Once he has used his attacking AI to get beyond the defender, there is no stopping him with his pace and physicality. He is by far the easiest player to get through on goal with that I have used. And once there, he makes the chances count.


Worth mentioning his passing too. With Engine he never misplaces a short pass. With a lot of players you notice the low passing stats (eg Haaland) but not with Morientes. I have barely any assists with him because I usually try to take the shot with Fernando, as I can trust it will go in almost every time.


And as if it couldn't get any better, it's so easy to get chemistry with him. He perfect links Llorente and strong links Ousmane and De Jong. Need I say more?

  • Shooting: Literally the best shot i've used in FIFA 22. It just goes in the net. Either foot. Can score from 20 yards with his left (feels like 5*).
  • Physicality/Heading: Want to score a corner? Want to smash it into the box and pray? Want to hold off VVD or Varane? Just get Fernando.
  • Positioning/Pace: Unbelievable runs, attacking AI, and pace. Combined with strength, nobody is tackling him from behind.
  • Dribbling: Responsive and performs skill moves silkily.
  • Passing: Noticeably decent.
  • Easy to link to OP players.
  • Literally none that I have found so far.

Sometimes may be good, sometimes may be sheet
By pulloutjohn, 13-10-2021

Used his card for my qualifiers for WL and as the title suggest it was a 50 / 50 battle with him. Guy gets bullied off the ball and struggles to maintain possession. Only way to really use him effectively is by releasing the ball as soon as it touches his feet. He played well with quit 1-2's outside the box and throughout the field but then felt like a slug making the run into space after. Inside the box (not sure if it's because of GK's being cracked) but couldn't finish any shot unless it was green timed. If you're looking for a tall, technical ST that can finish, go for POTM Benzema.

  • 4 Star Skills
  • Attacking Movement/Positioning
  • Timed Finesse from within 20 yards or outside 45 yards (Cant score within 20-45 lol)
  • headering presence in the box is definitely the best part about this card
  • Cheaper option to real icons if you're looking for a quick green link
  • constantly gets bullied by players like Lacroix and Gomez
  • 4 Star week foot is as existent as Timo Werner's 40 Goal Season for Chelsea
  • Balance makes him drop like a fly anywhere on the field with no foul
  • Hits crossbar like it's his job to do so
  • 90 Strength makes no difference whatsoever
  • Cannot make a pass thats 15 yards or longer
