I Mean It's Good, But...
By Ibo1115, 18-11-2021

Let me preface this by saying he is good. Don't get it twisted. But not every card can be 5/5 stars. People on this site don't typically like critical and honest reviews, but I won't lie!


Alright, we all know Silver Lounge is the best mode in the game. That's not some hot take. That is merely the truth. But, EA have been massive frauds with the players they are releasing. We have Kamaldeen. We have Jota. We don't need another LW. We need a CB and a CM. We need BALANCE!!


I hate playing players off chem. I avoid it as much as I can, but to use this card, admittedly, I played with him on 8. I linked him with Nuno Tavares in a 4-5-1 and switched to a 4-3-3 in game and played Anthony at LW. I replaced Kamaldeen on 10-chem with Gordon on 8. Big difference.


Here's what I think:


  • Gordon is very nice on the ball. The height and dribbling combo is very fun to play with. He's not clunky in the slightest. Is he better on the ball than Sulemana? It's debatable. They are very different players. 3*3* v/s 4*4* as well. Your choice (we all know the better option).


  • He's fast enough. Not as fast as Sulemana, but faster than most every other player in the Lounge. With a Hawk pace is not an issue.


Those are both good. Here is the bad.


  • He cannot pass. I don't know what it is. Gameplay? Me? I don't think so. The other players on my team can pass just fine. Gordon cannot, for the life of this card, pass the ball accurately. The amount of clear cut chances that this card's passing ruined is beyond explanation. Maybe my Gordon got swapped for Gordon Ramsey because I just can't find the sauce I want (kind of a stretch of a joke but I'm leaving it in!).


  • He's meh at shooting. Like most silver players, he struggles sometimes to hit the target. Nteka is the only silver player I can rely on shooting, so it's not a big deal that Gordon can't shoot. (I scored a crazy chip shot with him first game. Must have been the debut boost, because he struggles to shoot now)


  • Physicals are alright, but they are boosted with the Hawk.


It has to be a Hawk I think. I would love to get a passing boost, but I tried Deadeye and Basic and I didn't like them. He's much better with a Hawk.


Is he going to replace Kamaldeen for my squad? No. I can get Sulemana on full chem, and I find him to be a better player. However, if you missed Kamaldeen, Gordon will definitely be worth picking up for your future Silver Stars endeavours. I think Gordon will be a bench player for me alongside Josh, Jota, and Layun. At least I've got options now.

Fraudulent At Best

The saying usually goes that the third times the charm, yet that is not always the case, certainly not for Anthony Gordon. After being gifted with Sulemana and a cheeky Jota we were already packed with LW options for silver stars. Yet EA decided to push further and give another in Gordon, now more linkable and even upgradeable! How fantastic! He genuinely looked like a really good card with the prospect of incredible dribbl...
