88 - Winter Wildcards SBC
4.5
Messi with Skills and a worse Finesse
By NorlinderMTL, 26-12-2021

Before I say anything these games were played in Division 1/Elite Rivals


I have use the card for 15 games now with a G/A of 16/5


Initially I wanted to use the card as a outside CAM but decided against it, This card is slowly becoming my favourite central CAM in the game, his comparable for me is Messi, the finesse shots are not as good as Messis but they are still really good, Value for coins for me is a 9/10 (it would be a 10/10 but the sprint speed can sometimes be an issues not major though)

-Acceleration

-Finesse Shots

-Passing

-5* Skills

-Good Dribbling for the most part

-Attacking AI is very good

-Sprint speed is a little low for the meta but 100% usable

-In bad gameplay the reactions can be an issue

-Average body type kinda makes the dribbling feel not as good as it could be (still very good)

X Factor card
By HeightZ, 28-12-2021

Decided to do this card regardless of the overall conscientious that he was overpriced and overhyped(by leaks). However after packing WW Hazard this card looked perfect to play in the middle of a 4231 with him. While the overpriced shouts may be a little true this card is one of the most fun I've used all year. He has some of the best dribbling I've used this year while having great pace(with a hunter) and very good shooting and passing. The biggest takeaway from this card though was the fun factor as this card is unbelievably fun to use wether you are a wiggle stick newbie or skill merchant5 . At the end of the day FIFA is game for fun and this card passes the fun factor by tenfold...

-Good Shooting

-Good Passing

-5 Star Skills

-4 Star Weak foot

-GREAT DRIBBLING!!!!

-INSANE FUN!!!!


-Strength

-Face Value

-Stamina (a lil)

Coutin Ho Ho Ho - Santas little helper
By Swalker509, 31-12-2021

This is my first review on FUTBIN and damn Coutinho deserves it.


What can I say but Wow, the card ive been looking for. I seen the big price tag wrapped around his neck like a xmas bow and thought nah he wasn't my guy. A few games later he appears on the enemy team. Coutinho slowly, carefully and skilfully dismembers my team 1 by 1. My defence look like a bunch of drunk clowns as they try to get near him, I can only look on in horror as he reverse flip flaps my team into next week. Sule (90 ovr) the main man at the back looks like a boy as the Brazilian bangs 5 past me. Im not the greatest player but I am in elite so im trained but nothing could train me for Coutinho.


Coutinho didn't even need to sprint he could walk and outclass my defence like a Brazilian Berbatov. Unlocking passing lanes and creating space effortlessly but when he did need to burn someone his acceleration was at a venomous pace that would break any defenders ankles. He's the Cam ive been looking for, ive tried all chemistry styles that suit and its not question its Hunter.


If you want someone who's gonna speed about and do skills at 100 mph this isn't your guy. Coutinho is silky, classy and skilful. This card plays football not Fifa. He's for the purest football fan and is an absolute joy to use.

5 stars skills

Passing

Dribbling

Shooting

Honestly ive none right now im in love

BRAZILIAN WIZARD
By RuThiX36, 14-01-2022

It seems like in recent years we always get that one truly beefed up special SBC card of Philippe Coutinho. The past two iterations of FIFA we had to wait for its arrival until TOTS. Luckily this time around it crept its way surreptitiously into FIFA and into our hearts during the festive time of Christmas (just like it did in FIFA 19) sporting the RTG-friendly price tag of around 150k. I am not going to lie, I always look forward to this card and always do the SBC on day one no matter the requirements, knowing that with a Philippe Coutinho's card I am always in for a treat. 


If I were prompted to think of a fitting analogy for this FIFA 22 card, it might as well be like the Christmas gift you got from your grandma. It also arrived December 25th and your were super excited about it only until you found out that all your cousins had already received that exact same thing, too. Speaking of cousins, Coutinho and Neymar share that Joga Bonito DNA strand which makes them distant cousins, at least in my eyes. Cousins or not, their friendship goes a long way back in history, having first met back in 2006 when they both were a part of Brazil national squad U14. Four years later they also became team-mates in senior category, having made their first appearances for the Seleção in 2010. Long story short, their bond goes way beyond that yellow chemistry link they get in FUT.


So the idea was clear, deploy this hyper-talented creative duo up front in 4-2-2-2 (I switched to 4-2-3-1 at times playing Coutinho at RAM) and hope that this time-tested collaboration will soon bear fruit. While attempting to do so, they faced off against some of the biggest heavyweights of FUT (pointing at you, Patrick Vieira) and they were still able to hold they ground pretty well (L2 + left stick dribbling was the key to success). I did not want to cramp their style with some special tactical instructions so I let these on default, relying on their natural football intelligence to allow them to always pop up at the right place. As expected, Coutinho excelled at close-control dribbling and pulling off skill moves. That being said, I wish his reactions and composure were just a tad higher, but again, this card under 200k was a steal and a very welcome addition to my FUT club.

The little magician(Philippe Coutinho)
By Philippecouitnho14, 07-02-2022

Coutinho is my favorite player so this sbc was a must do for me and boy was it worth it.His pace is not overwhelming so you can dribble with him as smooth as you like the skill moves come of like butter and the way his passes are delivered are second to none.The shooting is my favorite part he can cut in form anywhere in the box left or right and first time shoot it into the far corner so there is no need to sweaty it.His finesse shots do not come of as well as they should considering his real life finesses are the best itw but i found i could score finesses of his weaker 4* left foot then his stronger right,the value of this sbc id decent and him and Neymar as cams are all you need to dominate weekend league

-Finishing in and around the box

-Dribbling

-Skill Moves

-Free Kicks
