Damn ea have done us nice with this sbc, if you don't have any fodder you're paying 70k for a Villarreal version of Vieira.
Anyone who has used his baby/mid and loved him will love this card. Guys 6'3" and a brick wall.
Currently using him in Elite with around 1800 points, so don't let your division be the reason you don't do him.
Had him sat in cdm with cut passing lanes, stay centre, stay back (ik original). He works good on man mark as well.
-Pace, I use a catalyst which boosts it a bit and he has good recovery to attackers and mainly the cam/midfielders.
-Passing, One of the most underrated stats of a cdm just so they can get play moving. Very good short and long pass incl ok composure, has a ping on him
-Dribbling, 6'3" with 80 agility, I can't fault it. Moves with the ball really well, his strength is an added laughing factor when people are trying to get the ball off him.
-Defending, Guys a lanky spider, interceptions by AI are so good, general 1v1 tackling and sliding are good as well.
-Physical, feels stronger and more aggressive than what his stats show, he has been bullying players I've come against.
-Weak foot, that is a 4* minimum, think 3* weak foot is a myth this year anyway.
-Price, 70k. That's all I need to say.
-Skill moves, my main skill to beat players are berba spin cancels, and fm they're so slow when using a 3* skiller, but its a bad habit and isn't necessary on him lets be honest.
-I can't comment on his shooting because I've not really shot with him, did crack one off the bar, so if you want to hit the woodwork then great.
TL,DR: Do his SBC if you need a french CDM who has overall good stats.
I was long on the lookout for a french CDM which doesn't cost an arm a a leg and is still useable. Sure, you have IF Guendouzi, but he is weak on the passing side. So my eyes lit up when I saw this SBC and I knew I have to get him. For around 60k you can't do anything wrong imo, slap a Shadow on him and he is a strong CDM.
I've played him in the Weekend League and the qualification for it and I must say, I didn't regret my decision. He is fast, can pass the ball forward to my own players (looking at you Flashback Kante), and when you play him on Balanced attack he helps out upfront and can score a goal or two. In midfield he is a wall, my opponents had a hard time going against him.
Th only downside in many eyes are the 3* 3* - but I don't mind. You don't need to do Rainbow flicks or whatever in midfield and in my opinion the 80 Agility and 84 Dribbling is more than enough for a CDM. Also don't forget the links to Mendy, Fekir, Benzema, Kante, Varane, Ben Yedder etc. - so grab him while he is available.
- solid CDM (with a Shadow Chem)
- perfect Box-to-Box with the right instructions
- perfect linking capability
- 3* 3* (not in my eyes tho)
ou can definitely take the SBC with you without a headache.
The card makes a really strong impression after 25 games, I played him as a central defensive and central midfielder (either 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3) and with the Chemiestyle Shadow
he closes the gaps really well and his interception is out of this world
The guy can pass in any case ( 8 assists ) ,his short and long pass (90 / 88 ) you notice in any case and his goals he has also made ( 6 , including 1 by penalty ) , Overall a very good SBC
on the whole a stable backstop ,definitely the best in La Liga
I did the Capoe SBC because i thought, i would regret it, if i dont do it. And i am happy, that i did it. Capoue is a strong CDM and i can leave him the control of the Middlefield. His Sidetackles are very good and he can punch the player out of the ball.
I did the SBC when it comes out but even did play with him, because i had Fofana POTM. In my new Team with Modric WW in the Middlefield, these 2 Guys are perfect matching!
Only his Agility and Dribblestats makes him sometimes clunky and angry. But his Defensive Actions are very great!
Great CDM, Sidingtackles, Aggressivity
I´ve had read, that he is like Vieira. I can confirm it!
Agility - it is sometimes very hard to dribble with him...
