94 - ShapeShifters
4.5
Alone he crumbled, together they thrived.
By Afcian, 27-06-2022

When I first saw that Tierney was in shapeshifters I knew I had to get him. Upon getting him I played around 20 games(weekend League) until I packed a duplicate in my rewards, resetting the games counter. From my experience a shadow does not work well for Tierney as he is relatively short and weak, I decided to use an anchor to boost what I believe needed the most attention. In the air I oftentimes struggled as he wouldn't take initiative, leaving the ball to be cleared by another CB or my GK. Fortunately, if you play him alongside a dominant CB or one that is half decent in the air your defense will not concede. And while he is relatively short he is still able to challenge for the headers on set pieces, meaning it's not a huge concern. I also struggled at first to deal with balls in behind and low crosses, however, I eventually realized the best way to defend with him is to not touch him at all. Tierney is a beast when slide tackling despite his height, when he slides he is practically on ice with the speed and distance he generates. With an Anchor chem style, his strength is boosted, meaning that he is oftentimes underestimated by opponents who just assume they are only seeing an angry, weak, Scotsman when in reality he can body Akinfenwa off the ball as if he were a small bug. I picked him up for around 120,000 and he has been incredible value for money. However, one important thing to note is that with his weight and height in mind he oftentimes is quicker and lighter than most other defenders, meaning he may take some time to get used to. To summarize Tierney is an extremely solid defender after you get used to him, while his heading may not seem great, it is never at the expense of any goals, in fact, he has scored a headed corner or two for me.

Unreal LB

So i bought him right after release, bcz i needed a Prem RB and thought for this price you cant go wrong.First of all, he shocked me how good he isI would compare him to Theo IF with much better defending.His positioning is crazy and he tackles so clean, his CPU defending is broken, he goes in so much tackles and wins the ball when not controlled, i´ve never seen that such crazy by a defender ngl.

I am dissapointed

Maybe one of 2 Arsenal players who probably deserved a higher rating. 80 seems harsh for a man that was solid at the back and almost single handed carries Arsenals entire attack.Real life aside, how is he in fifa?
