Best Non-Icon Midfielder in the Game (Fabinho)
By MightyBantam, 28-01-2022

Having packed in him in my 82x25 swaps pack, I was overjoyed. My pack luck before this point was pretty poor so building a squad to challenge at the top end was tricky. This card has changed all of that on it's own.


Since having him in my team my Weekend League results have improved and I've steadily moved up to a consistant level of Div1/Elite. He's the game changer.


It took a while to adjust to the fact he has pace and is far more agile than his base card. Having used him as a CDM in previous FIFAs, it took a few games to get going with him. But, oh boy, once I'd cracked it, he was (quite simply) the best non-icon midfielder I've used.


His range of passing, interceptions, bullying of opposition midfielders and a lethal long shot make him a superstar in my team. I don't often get messages after games. However, I've had many a message from players saying Fabinho was unstoppable.


I think a large reason why this card works is the 94 composure. He just does everything without fuss. I use him as a CAM and that's where I would recommend he is played. Yes, you can stick a shadow on him and play him as a CM or CDM, but he's wasted there. He reminds me a lot of Moments Socrates and he fits the meta of this year's game so well.


His price has stayed steady and there's good reason for that. he is well worth that price and he's cheaper than some cards which I have found to be less effective. If you have 400k and need a player who can do everything in the middle, don't hesitate, get Fabinho.

Lafont SIF (Alban Lafont)
By memosi4, 28-01-2022

Where do I start... After using Lafont for 30 games I was sure that this guy is a very good keeper, I mean at mid distance and close range he is quite consistent and can provide some amazing saves, but then those 3 games happened in WL where my opponets were just shooting long range finesses and this is just ridiculous. Maybe it's because of the positioning or the animations of Lafont but he just couldn't save ANY of them. I conceded 3 goals 1 after another from Benzema, but the biggest shock was Tiernie's right foot finess. Overall I would recommend this guy only if you miss September vibes before the patch(you will be the victim)

  1. Mid range saves
  2. Close range saves
  3. Consistent on corners


  1. Every long shot is a goal

Akanji the cheap Blanc (Manuel Akanji)
By Theoooor, 28-01-2022

With the big overflow of informs from the last and this TOTW because of the Pack Supply from TOTY, all the Cards come with low cost and are mostly just GOOD FOODA.

But Akanji is a beast card wich is just overlooked by all the people. Apart from his Stats this Card is fast af. He just takes so big steps that he can easily hold up with many Attackers. With his Dribbling and Defensiv Stats he can easily get the Ball and escape out of his Position. The next thing u do is obviously pass, and I have to say that his short passes are phenomenal and even his long passes get to their right destination. Along to Süle and Blanc Mid I have to say that his Physis is a bit of a let down and he can't bully attackers like Süle does, but he don't have to if he can just take the ball of the attackers foot and make a run forward. Also his Agility is really good and besides of many other Defenders he don't turn like a truck.

(The Stamina is enough for 90min but for overtime I would recommend to give him a rest outside the field)

He really performed well and I think that, until I have coins for Headliner VVD, he will stay in my team.

My tip for u is, that you should really try him if u need him for links and u can't do anything wrong with such a good card for 25k.


(This is my first review because I really want to do one and I am Div 3 with a normal WL of 11 Wins and 9 Loses)


  • Pace
  • Defensiv Stats
  • Agility
  • Price
  • Greenlinks to Zakaria and Mbabu


  • his Physik is enough for normal attackers but with, for example an Mbappe HL, u have to time ur Defending right to get the Ball
  • Stamina after 90min or with aggressive Tactics

Hattrick hero - Harry Kane (Harry Kane)
By BOXchamp06, 28-01-2022

(Excuse me if I made any English mistakes, sorry)

Harry Kane, an amazing player in real life and in game as well. Despite the 400k price tag, he wasn't that expensive--mainly because I saved up my packs for the TOTY promo. With good enough pack luck and a minimum of packs (40 packs myself), he is a player worth completing. For me personally he works best playing on the right in a 4-1-2-1-2 narrow formation. 4-2-2-2 works great too. That pace split is a pain and also his agility and balance as well so slap an Engine on him and it solves most problems that you mat have. He can run, his passing is alright (better than CB in my opinion), he can dribble well with an engine and most definitely he shoot! With the left, with the right anywhere in the box, the ball will be through the net (unless keeper is on some joke ting). Overall an amazing card to use and I have a lot of fun absolutely smashing the ball through the net with a green timed finish. If you are tempted by that flashback Varane, I can understand but if you got spare fodder and coins, completing this SBC is a must (especially you Tottenham and England national team fans, i gotcha). Absolute game changer!

Thank you if you found this helpful and enjoy playing FIFA!

TOTW Verratti (Marco Verratti)
By MonacoR77, 28-01-2022

First Futbins review and what a controversial one to start with! TOTW Verratti.


I’ve been looking for a CM for my Ligue 1/Bundesliga hybrid and tried a mixture of players. I’ve always been drawn to Verratti due to his small size, dribbling and passing. Sadly, I missed the SBC and the reviews on the gold card were shocking.


I saw his TOTW and thought, why not. 40k coins, play a few matches and either keep or sell. Well after quite a few matches SC and Rivals (Tier 6 and climbing – this is my first year to Fifa) he’s really solid. Yes he has his downsides, most notable the pace. But the best players don’t keep mashing the pace button 100% of the time. Pace used in the correct way is good, but if not, you’re running around like a headless chicken and easy to dribble past.


With Verratti, his agility and dribbling mixed with his balance, make a great play maker. I have him sitting in front of CDM HL Kimmich, and just behind SBC Icardi, Ginola and Laborde. He links defence and attack perfectly. Kimmich breaks up the play and passes to Verratti. Verratti at that point is usually surrounded by players, but a quick flick of the left stick and a little burst of pace, he’s got time and space to pick out a killer ball to one of the front three. Yes, if I try and run with the ball he’ll get caught up by the other team, but that’s not how you play him. Receive the ball, create some space and find a killer pass.


On the odd occasion he’s on the edge of the box, he’s quick feet and small stature always find him space.


Apart from the pace, the only real downside is his stamina. Even being conservative on the pace, he lasts up until around 70mins, then I need to sub him. 


Get him, don't be a sheep!
