89 - Icon
I actually played with him
By andrewnew, 21-01-2022

Not gonna lie this ugly card is really a sad view when you're opening an icon pack but when life gives you lemons...

I replaced Koulibaly with him in my squad because Big Kalou is indeed fast and strong but his balance and passing are horrific which can be really problematic at times. I wanted someone with reliable passing because that is crucial with all of those high-pressing sweat-lords out there.

So I gave mid Bobby a chance and let me be clear - he is slow, yes; he is short, yes. But still he's performing incomparably better to Kalou.

  • He's positioning is great, he's always where he should be and doesn't make stupid moves.
  • On small space 1v1 he is just impossible to go by, he just takes the ball as if it was his.
  • His passing is super-reliable, very easy to get out from high pressing.

But yes as said, he is slow and short which for some people is a deal killer but to be fair to him he makes up for it in other areas so it's not that he's so horrible. If you were unlucky enough to pack him and you're bored, not satisfied with your current CB, give him actually a shot. He's definitely more playable in game than low-tier icon strikers like Inzaghi or Vieri.
