So i did this SBC when it came out as i am a huge barca and ansu fan and i have been waiting since it got leaked
I agree, he is way too overpriced he should have been 150-200k but ea is ea
Now on to the card, i used him lw in game with a finisher togheter with dembele and danjuma.
He feels alot like dembele on the wing with him being rapid and the same body type, he is quick on the ball and great dribbling. When cutting in with him he was scoring constantly and he could score anything of the dribble. Heading was something that suprised me, he could win and score headers despite his strength
I tried him at striker and he was ok but i would not recommend him as a striker due to him being bullied in the box with his strength
In counclusion i would to this card if you like ansu or have the fodder, a great card but TERRIBLE value.
- Dribbling (with a finisher chemstyle)
- Getting a shot of quiclky
- Passing could be a let down sometimes
To start off, a bit of context, when the jubalani ball came out, I immediately bought Diego Forlan, however he disappointed me. When on the search for a new La Liga/Ligue 1 striker, only one man stood out to me, OOP Anssumane Fati. Whether or not I was willing to put the Forlan fund into an untradable player was uncertain, but powered by nostalgia from his FIFA 21 POTM card, I took a leap of faith, and I'd recommend you taking that same jump. Having played him to the right side of POTM Messi in a 4312, with gold Neymar behind him in CAM, I have come to realise he is exactly what my team needed, he's got a lightning burst of pace which I was unable to find with his La Liga striker counterparts, the same goes for his shooting animations, where you can get a shot off in almost any situation. His shooting itself is great, reliable, however when put next to the trivela king himself (and the goat), Lionel Messi, he can only shine a certain amount. His dribbling is fantastic, and paired with his lightning pace, is an incredible asset to beat a man with. His passing is nothing to write home about, however it does it's job. Unfortunately, his physicality is appaling. If you do take the leap and complete this sbc, be prepared to get bodied off the ball constantly. When using this card, I'd recommend using the marksman chemistry style, to primarily improve his reactions and strength. It is also worth noting I play on the older generation of FIFA 23.
Pace (92) - Blisteringly fast.
Shooting (85) - Great.
Dribbling (87) - Brilliant.
Outside foot trait.
High/Med work rates.
Physicality (63) - Could definetely be improved.
Price - 300k for an untradable card in this market is very pricey, especially compared to OOP Choesa, who came in around half the price with very similar stats.
Alternate positions - Can only play ST/CF, not bad to be fair but might be limiting.
He is very decent , he runs past the defenders like mbappe his shooting inside the box isnt the best . With the Insite Foot shot trait you dont feel his weakfoot , in terms of passing he is very very good , 1 thing that i noticed was the many balls that he recovered. Physically he is very weak. He is also a INSANE dribbling
Shooting (outside the box)
Shooting (inside the box)
I want a good striker and he is,
He is expensive but very good.
Fati is a player that glitched to every defense, is finishing is very good and he have also a good agility.
Overall if you got the fodder and the coins do him!
If you are broke look for maguire.
The first time I saw this card I thought it was kinda overpriced, but over time it turned out to be overpowered.
Now, after the shadow patch, using this card is pure pleasure.
Maybe Shakira's hips don't lie (Pique continues to cry), but the stats on this card sure do.
I played this card with hunter chemistry style to max out the pace to 99/99 (i'm disgusting sure a pace merchant) as a right striker in 5-2-1-2 formation (yea, i know), paired with Kewell WC as left striker and Ginola as CAM, behind them. And, believe me or not, Fati moves like an brand new Aventador, because his acceleration with highly rated positioning keeps him in the perfect spot, especially when you are passing to him with L1 + triangle (which is OP as every year).
The passes on the card are not phenomenal, but enough for a little tiki-taka. Short passing is good and long passing doesn't matter, because you are trying to make as many through ball passes as possible, but Fati should be the target of them.
Even though the card only has 87 balance, Fati spins around like a Beyblade and makes opposing defenders look like fools. This is probably due to the agility and unique body type on the card (similar to Ronaldinho, for example, who also has relatively low balance, but... moves like Jagger).
He is soooo clinical with his shooting, but man, he has 99 finishing with hunter chem, so what would you expect?
Looking at 56 strength, you can imagine a little sparrow that is moved even by a slight gust of wind. Nothing more wrong, Fati is a sparrow on drugs and steroids. Thanks to his unique body type, he is not often outbodied by defenders, he usually glitches through them and leaves them behind. What is surprising, he can jump and score the headers in proper situations. For sure, he is not physicall striker, he won't bully Van Dijks or Koulibalys, but he feels much stronger than Insigne/Messi-type players, has like Mbappe/Eto'o feeling while on the ball.
Additionally, this card plays like it has been enchanted - I mean brief moments of magic when Fati does mesmerizing plays like heel shots, sometimes even if you don't trigger it.
For me, as 3rd DR div, ~11 WL wins he is gamechanger and from trio Kewell/Fati/Ginola I'm considering Ansu the most fun to play with.
The card is a lot of fun to play, has 4/4, usefull H/M workratios. Is its price high? Undoubtedly, you will freeze a lot of fodder and there will probably be a plenty of alternatives soon. But the card is definitely not overpriced. A must have for Barcelona fans - do it or you'll regret it later. For the rest, still a very decent card to have, looks better in game than stats on the card says.
acceleration and sprint speed combined with positioning
unique body type making card very agile
price (but i don't think value is that awful)
