So... after last years disappointment with this card I gave him another chance because he was down to 85k and I thought he can't drop any further. Also with the feeling that taller players peform like theyre stats tell I thought it might be the time for another shot. There are still no body types on futbin and this card does not peform like a player with high&average did last year. With an engine he tops the 80s mark both on agility and balance and gets a dribbling of 92. And he feels exactly like this. He wont move like Messi, but also does not feel like the truck he felt like last year. The finishing is incredible with both feet, he is super strong with super headers, has decent passing, 4/4, and the pace is up to 88, which is enough in my opinion if you link him with the right players. I play him as ST in 4321 with Raphinha and Foden as CFs and I could not be happier. Even for the 140k which he costs now I still think this is a good value. I super happy that the meta this year allows to play higher players like him. Absolute rocket !!!

  • Shooting. Absolute clinical finisher.
  • Strength. Bullies many defenders.
  • Headers. Absolute beast in the air.

Not really cons, but:

could be slightly quicker, and of course the passing COULD be better. But come on, the price is still fair for a such complete striker

Best ST in. game
Morientes is absolutely insane. He finishes every single shot and with a hawk (lengthy) he is able to outpace and out strength many top tier cbs. He will get on the end of any through ball and is a beast when crossing into the box. I play Ansu Fat OOP behind him at CAM and Fati has assisted at a much higher rate now with Morientes at ST.

Pretty good
Morientes is good. I used his base hero for a long time, and when this came out I had to try it. Obviously, it feels better. He feels like a really good finisher, like he was before, but suddenly his passing is actually reasonable. When I bought him, he carried me to 8 and 1 in champs, scoring like 12 goals. He is very good at ST in a 4-3-1-2. His headers are good, but he doesn't out jump van Dijk. dribbling is okay, he has q...

Morientes the Merchant
Morientes... Where to start with this man! He was the first hero that I picked up this year. Whilst searching endlessly for a big man to play as a striker who was a master at heading the ball and who had a bit of pace about him. Morientes came in replacing the IF Giroud, who was doing okay for me but lacked that killer instinct that was needed at the higher level. As soon as he was in the side, I stuck a hunter on him to give...
