Initiallly I was hesitant replacing FutBirthday Vidal, however this guy is a BEAST. 7 Chem, box to box midfielder in a 433(4). Do not let the 80 strength or low defending turn you off this card. He plays like he at least has 90+ strength. I also find that his height is perfect and is not clunky.
- Can finish his dinner1 (top shooting for a CM)
- Feels strong (like he has 90+ Strength
- Feels agile and easy to defend with
- wins most aerial battles
- he is everywhere for me
- Low defending stats (if I was being picky, but doesn't affect this card)
I packed him from FoF Guaranteed, don't really play the game much nowadays and he didn't suit my team for chemistry, but after trying him in a few games of Ultimate level squad battles, I have to say he's even better than the cracked Futmas Acuna from last year which was OP. I mean you could probably tell this just from his stats. IG He is strong, fast, stocky af and has an amazing dribbling, really responsive and agile card. Only downside is his finishing, shots usually go in due to his shot power but obviously need a chem boost for the card to be like a shorter and more agile Goretzka. Recommend him a lot (div1 g2 player) especially if you have a spare Messi lying around in ur club to link (i don't unfortunately). He is a raging bull, if Argentina goes far in the tournament this card will be god tier.
- maybe height but strength complements for this
I had mid henry from swaps so I knew what I was getting into before doing the SBC, but this moments henry is miles better, hardly meta, however. I played Henry on a Basic and felt him to have similar but slightly better L1 dribbling than TOTS Benzema. What Henry excels in is brute pace and a shotgun of a right foot. Finesse shots are sublime with the trait and 99 curve. Berba spins come off pretty darn silkily and at the same time his large frame and strength prevents defenders from wrapping around him. Side note, Henry is very very good at tackling if you jockey with him. Passing was great. I recommend L1 dribbling rather than left sticking to play to Henry's strengths. Weak foot was pretty good as well, although it is a true 4 star WF. To be brutally honest though, you will only find the SBC worth it if you are an Henry, Arsenal, Barcelona or Monaco fan. He provides very good strong french links, but icons like Cantona are indisputably more meta, if the meta is important to you. FYI, Henry tends to drop quite deep to create space on mixed instructions.
Strong foot in general
Strength, L2 shielding
not meta (not really a con if u properly utilize him)
Not the best left sticker
Felix has been one of my favorite cards throughout the year. Played his NIF, his 84 IF and his POTM version and loved them all. Unsurprisingly, the PtG lived up to his predecessors. Not only that, he banged in a total of 50 goals and delivered another 11 assists in 22 games of WL (17:5). The super attacking 4-2-4 formation and me building most of my plays around him certainly helped, but he delivered when needed pretty much every single time.
TOTY Mbappé (my second striker) is the better card overall, but I honestly believe Felix has better finishing. His shot animations are some of the cleanest you'll ever see. Finesses from the edge of the box with both feet, near post power shots - he's got it all. What I love the most about him is his off the ball movement. Some people don't like M/M players, but this guy just stays onside so well. So many times I did nothing but wait for him to adjust his position, pass it into his feet, turn and shoot.
Dribbling wise he's definitely got the "sticky" trait. Scored some horrendous goals here and there just glitching through defenders. Skill moves come off nicely, though he is not as silky as TOTS Nani or IF Neymar. Then again he doesn't have to be. He is and never was the fastest, strongest or smoothest on the pitch. It's just a (pretty much) perfect mix of abilities that makes him an absolute beast in this game.
- Reliable Finishing
- Amazing off the ball movement
- Sticky dribbling
- Stamina was a slight issue
- Can be bullied off the ball by the likes of Mbabu (who can't?)
- Not top tier speed, so not a through ball and go player
When I first got him, i played him as a box to box and thought he was terrible, because he was. I switched him to a CAM and usually sub him on in around the 70th minute. He is so reliable. I had a game where he kicked 4 goals in 20 minutes of in-game time and a 119th minute winner. He helped me go from gold 2 to 1 game off elite 3.
Passing is elite. Tap triangle and it will find someone.
Dribbling is very good. 5* skills really helps him, but I would prefer to dribble with others (such as bamba)
Shooting. With his weak foot 4* but feeling like 5*, he bangs them in from anywhere.
Defending... DO NOT PLAY HIM CM. He doesn't get the ball and is wasted down there
Stamina. He gets tired if you play him CM or run him around a lot.
Links. Spanish is alright but the China link really messes him up. He's worth being a first minute sub in my opinion
