A quick note: I'm going to try and review as many of the fan-favorite TOTS cards as possible over the next month. To do this, I'll be shortening these reviews, but that should allow me to hopefully write more of them. I hope you understand, and I hope you enjoy the review!
Today we'll be looking at the 93-rated TOTS Roberto Firmino. On the back of a truly incredible real-life season, and capping his ascendancy to true world-class status, Firmino has received a truly outstanding TOTS item.
I've been playing him in this team:
He's been incredible for me, and has these stats:
Chemistry Style: Hawk
What makes Firmino so effective is his versatility -- he's good at virtually everything in the attacking and creative departments. Some of his key stats include:
90 Acceleration and Sprint Speed
97 Vision and Short Passing
As you can see, he dominates in virtually every stat needed for an attacking player. And these stats translate perfectly to his performance in-game.
Let's take a look at his card stats.
He's very, very quick. Definitely lives up to the 90 pace, and with the Hawk chemistry style, he feels like 90+ pace. He can burn past most midfielders and defenders, and the fastest fullbacks still have their work cut out for them.
He can score from anywhere, on either foot (his weak foot feels like a 5-star). His long shots are amongst the best I have used this year, his finishing is the best I've used this year, and his positioning and runs are equalled only by Prime R9. Even his finesse shots are unreal, and his volleys are as good as they get.
Flawless. Any pass can be executed with perfection, off either foot. His passing matches the best play makers in the game, making him perfectly suited to any attacking position you put him in (CM, CAM, CF). I even scored a free kick with him, so don't let that stat put you off.
Feels so agile and nimble in game. He can turn instantly, and execute skill moves in the blink of an eye. His first touch is perfect, and the ball is stuck to his feet as he runs. Genuinely a joy to dribble with. And with the 4-star skills, he can weave his way through any defense in the game.
His strength, aggression, stamina, pace and height means he can bully most players off the ball, and he tracks back relentlessly, all game long. His standing tackle is actually 74, and it means he can dispossess the majority of players, and he often wins the ball high up the field. He's not going to cut it as a CDM, but he'd make a fine CM.
Physical : 10/10
Perfection. He's unbelievable in the air, and a serious aerial threat from corners or crosses. He's very strong, and his aggression is pretty incredible too. The best stat here is the 99 stamina, which means he can do everything I talked about above all game long. He's genuinely tireless.
Overall Rating: 10/10
Value for coins: 10/10
This is the best card I've used this year, along with Prime R9. He can do everything, and he can do it consistently and with ease. He's the perfect striker, center forward, attacking mid, wide midfielder or central midfielder, and he will change this game for you.
