96 - TOTY
Very good to put in a high-rated SBC
By EdBennett, 11-02-2022

Packed this guy in an 81+ Double Upgrade SBC and obviously was gassed, a 96 TOTY from a super easy SBC.

However, after using him for 20 games I just gave up. His 96 feels more like 81/82; he's since been replaced by POTM De Gea who is worlds better. There is very little this card is actually good at, a shame because he's exceptional irl.


It's okay for high shots or low driven shots. Any shot aimed at about mid heigh though will go in, since he always seems to dive under the ball in these situations. Definitely doesn't live up to the stat and height combo though, feels more like 85/86.


Reflexes in 1v1 situations are fantastic. The height combined with his agility make it very hard for strikers to score close up in a 1v1 situation as he just sweeps out and smothers them. Sadly however, this is pretty much all he can do to a good standard.

Reflexes when saving those near-post shots from the wing are shocking, lets them in every single time. Also seems to get nutmegged a lot which is pretty embarrassing tbh.


Handling's alright- sometimes catches the ball from a dive where other keepers wouldn't but also sometimes spills it in to dangerous areas where other keepers would catch it. Pretty 50/50.


Possibly his worst attribute ingame, very frequently out of position and seems to struggle to get back into position quickly. I never really understood how important GK Positioning was in FUT until I used Donna.


Feels very fast ingame which again allows him to be very effective at reflex saves in close up 1v1 situations.


Really nice goal kicks, poor throws so overall I'd give it a 7/10


Overall I'd recommend 100% DO NOT BUY. If you packed him untradeable and are a very good defender then maybe you'll consider using him because he looks good in a squad, but if you need a good Ligue 1 goalkeeper, 84 IF Lafont is still the best by a very large margin, and literally 5 times cheaper. Donnarumma is great in close up 1v1 situations where he can sweep out of goal and smother the player, but that is literally all he actually excels in, everything else is either merely adequate or poor. The only use for this card for me was in an SBC.

Alright, here it goes. Now for about 25% of all FIFA 22 Players, if you've opened packs during the defender TOTY release, you've probably packed this guy. Considering how many are on the market at the current moment, this guy has been easily obtainable. For about 3 months, I've had Mid Cech in goal from the SBC and before the patch he was a God. Even after the patch he's still good but they'v...

The Jedi Master

I played him for more than 100 games in rivals and Futchampions and the only thing I can tell you is that 70k for this guy isn't enough.This monster will save you entire matches as he can predict the future with his Jedi abilities. He's literally everywhere thanks to the Force and makes your opponent losing his mind. The only c...

This card proves that stats don't matter

After seeing him at about 180k (Xbox) I thought I'd try him and boy did I screw up. You'd think he'd be the best goalie in the game with his stats and height but he plays like a non-rare silver. His positioning and handling are HORRIBLE. He lets every outside of the box finesse shot in, and refuses to catch a shot. I conceded so many rebound goals with him, it's infuriating. Gold Areola is much better than TOTY Donnaruma an...
