This is my first review on futbin but as there aren't a lot of good LW in Serie A I decided to give you guys some help if you're doubting to complete this SBC.
I'm a D1 player at the moment (was Elite in the first season) and i get rank 2 in the WL
I've used this little man for 14 games now, scoring 8 and giving 7 assists.
Chem style was finisher as I think his 77 finishing really needed a boost.
His positioning was very good, he makes smart runs and is at the right spot to tap in rebounds sometimes
Very responsive (seems like he reacts immediately after using your joystick - very good for left stick dribbling) - maybe he seems to move quicker because he is so small but at this point I haven't used anyone that was as responsive as him
Can't complain about his passing in game
Pace is more than okay, when you send him on a 1v1, they won't catch him
Only con is his strength of course but you can easily adapt to it as his dribbling is very good
He is amazing.
I use him as left striker in the 4-1-2-1-2 (2) formation. Fast build up. He stays forward, get in behind. Hunter for now.
Obviously he is small, and weak, and Italian. You wont use him to dominate VVD shoulder to shoulder or in the air... BUT he's crazy fast.
With and without the ball, With the proper custom tactics (and Hunter's needed too I guess), he'll make those runs and they wont catch him.
And as amazing as it already is, we haven't even covered the best feature yet... HE'S SHOOTING !
I rarely time shot (successfully I mean) and I didn't need to. 8 out of 10 finesse went in, Donnaruma wasn't tall enough.
He's passing never let me down too. As more players drop back with the fast yet solid defenders, either you'll have space to receive the ball and shoot from afar, you can cross, pass over them... He's able and willing !
His stamina isn't great for sure, but Staying forward... He mostly finishes my games.
So it's 12 goals for 12 games. 3 Assists.
I'm a revoked elite player and I'm struggling getting back there, I ended up this week Div 1 rank 2.
(How come everyone has Ney Messi and Mbappe plus Abedi Pele... and at my most lucky packing I get Lewandoswky ?)
FINESSE SHOT 5/5
BALL CONTROL 5/5
No surprises there, Height and Strength, but if you don't ask him to be Ronaldo, He'll make a pretty great LORENZO INSIGNE !
This is the first review i write here so i thought if there was any player i wanted to give credits to publicly, that player was definately insigne.
I was already using the gold insigne who had 168 appearances with 163 goals and assists so as soon as i saw the sbc i went ahead and completed it.
Tbh i was hoping for a position change or an IF because in my opinion ea could have been a little more generous with the upgrades in this one.
Anyway i gave him a hunter and tried him out in D2.
Pace: Even though i was playing him at cam he always tried without any instructions to get in behind the defenders, 8 times out of 10 the could not catch him as his 91 pace for me felt like 95+
Shooting: A bit more consistent with his long shots and much more clinical in 1v1s for me with either the regular or the finesse shots.
Passing: 9 times out of 10 he will send any pass perfectly. Having mid torres in st i was only worried about the passed being good and insigne didn't dissapoint in that category
Dribbling: I can't even think of how many times i got with insigne wide and penetrate the defence with the left analog dribbling. I am not a skiller, i won't start doing ball rolls when there's no one around me
Strength. If the cb catches him its over. But all in all decent stamina
I play in division 1 and futchamps, and compared to alternatives like el shaarawy and his normal card, he is worth the money. He is super agile and he feels godly on the ball
With a deadeye, you can barely feel his lack of finishing and his long shots are phenomenal. His runs are amazing and he's never been offside. If you're contemplating completing him, i would definitely go for it.
Do not miss out on completing this card. For under 100k this card is fantastic. I play a 4231 and i put him at the left CAM. only just started playing again this season so working my way back into div 2 but geez does he score a lot of goals. With 40 g/a in 23 games i think he speaks for himself. His very smooth on the ball and is able to dribble past defenders with ease. Don't get me started on his finesse shots. With a marksman giving him 97 dribbling and 87 shooting giving him 95 long shots (otherwise i advise to use a finisher if that's not your normal playing style), when Lorenzo insigne possibly upgrades my 2 he will have 93 pace, 89 shot, 88 passing and 99 dribbling. Again, don't miss out on doing this card. Other alternative to this card would be perdo's flashback which i completed but this is something else.
- Finesse shots
- Weak foot
