VERY underrated midifielder to use. I used him as a left center mid in a 41212(2), instructions telling him to go forward. He was on 10 chem with hunter chem style, all games played in div 4 and div 3 rivals.
Very surprising in game performance for me. His pace with the hunter chem style was more than good enough for a midifielder, he didn't feel rapid, but not slow whatsoever. Of course the highlights of this card have to be his dribbling and passing. Even with no boost in those stats with the chem style I used, his passing and dribbling were magnificent. Turns perfectly, fantastic agility and balance in game, and him being very short in game his dribbling with his stock in game is amazing. Left stick and R1 dribbling with him was almost messi-esque (yes I have tried Messi I'm not lying it was actually close). His passing was so reliable he basically doesn't misplace a pass unless I make a stupid decision with my inputs. The biggest surprise I found with this card is his shooting. His finesse shots from outside the box were incredible. His finishing in the box wasn't perfect, but for a midfielder it was good enough. His defending was nothing special, and because he is weak would often get bodied by other midfielders. Sometimes when defending he gets bad animations and the ball bounces back to your opponent a lot, so I won't recommend him as a cdm or as a defensive minded cm at all. His focus on your team should be attacking mostly. His stamina wasn't great, in the later stages of the game (70 min and onwards) he would start being really slow and had little effect on the game, so I recommend having a solid substitution for him. Overall very usable in this stage of the game and is very creative on the pitch, not much to offer defensively or physically. Also just as a warning, this review may be slightly biased as I love him irl, so take that with a grain of salt i guess.
Really effective finesse shots from outside the box
solid finishing inside the box
Cheap for his production on the pitch
Solid pace for a midfielder
possibly good investment as fodder later :)
Stamina didn't help at all, had to be subbed off eventually
Might not be very effective in November or December
