FC 24 Flashback Anthony Martial Player Review - Cop or Flop?

It's been a busy few days and it does not look like slowing down today we have a Flashback Martial... When he first came onto the scene he had some really nice items in FUT but it's been a while since he's been an effective attacking option.

You can check out the card here!

I saw a lot of comments asking what could this possibly be a flashback too? Well in game we're told it's 'celebrating his total of 23 goals for Manchester United during the 19/20 season' Maybe after leaving United he can get back to that form?

We again changed up the squad, Martial taking the ST role with the hawk chemistry style applied.

Here are the following segments to unlock the Flashback Martial SBC:

Manchester United

# of players from Manchester Utd: Min 1

TOTS or TOTW: Min 1

Squad Rating: Min 86

Top Form

TOTS or TOTW: Min 1

Squad Rating: Min 87

Premier League

# of players from Premier League: Min 1

Squad Rating: Min 88

90-Rated Squad

Squad Rating: Min 90

All of these combine for a cost of around... 400,000 coins. Ouch. It's fair to say this hasn't gone down well with the community...

How did he perform in game?

We'll start positive but I did have a few issues with this item;

+ 5* Weak Foot, always an easy plus.

+ Power Shot+, EA seems to be giving this playstyle out at will at the moment and I'm not complaining! Although surely Martial should have been given Finesse+???

+ Strength, In-game Martial physically was impressive both when defending possession and when trying to win it back

/ Passing, Just at this stage it's not at the level of other attackers, even CB's and other ST's have been given insane passing stats and Martial is lacking in that area, short passing is fine but the long passing is incredibly average. 

/ Dribbling, It's kind of wild to say this about someone with Technical+ and 96-rated dribbling, but Martial on the ball was a bit of a mess, he just felt so heavy in possession at times, incredibly inconsistent in this area. 

Flashback Anthony Martial - Cop or Flop?

Flop, 400,000 coins is just too much for this item now, for it to be good value it needed to be half that price, Yesterday's Reus SBC was x2 the cost but you got a player x20 better than this Martial. I've said it in a few reviews this week too at this stage of the game we're going to be getting players like this and better than this very regularly so I'd recommend you save your coins for a better player.
