The subsequent Flashback SBC card is right here in FIFA 21 and this time round it’s Koscielny, celebrating his 2011/2012 Premier League season…however as a Ligue 1 CB coming in at virtually over 100ok cash. This may well be the worst SBC but from EA. Here’s a rundown on why this card most definitely isn’t value doing.
First up, 100ok for an 86-rated CB with lower than 80 tempo is just about an alien idea this early in FIFA 21. Pace is king in FUT 21 and Kosclieny’s card, whilst he does have respectable bodily and protecting stats, simply gained’t reduce it in opposition to Rodrigos, Aubas, and Werners. You’d be at an advantage with a Joe Gomez.
It's as soon as once more time to shuttle 🔙…

To whole the Koscielny SBC you’ll want two squads, an 84 and an 85. You’ll additionally want a mixture of French gamers, Premier League Players, and Ligue 1 gamers. In phrases of participant restrictions that’s now not so unhealthy, however two squads at that top score? That’s a large number of cash for a card that simply doesn’t glance that groovy.
Here’s a have a look at the CB’s playing cards from FUTBIN, which must confidently end up the purpose I’m looking to get throughout.
I do know I’ve already been happening in regards to the tempo, but it surely actually is a a very powerful stat in FIFA 21. With 77 Acceleration and 77 Sprint Speed, Koscielny goes to really feel like a caravan hooked up to the again of a Nissan Micra. You will wish to observe a Shadow to this card, if, for no matter reason why, you wish to have to rep it.
There’s surely Koscielny has excellent protecting and bodily stats, with sturdy Defensive Awareness and Aggression. It would possibly really feel slightly like Thiago Silva in-game, ready to forestall assaults with aggression however shedding out to pacey strikers.
Compared to a card like Lucas Hernandez, a French CB within the Bundesliga, the stats are infrequently other. That card handiest prices 2k. That’s 98ok lower than Koscielny recently.
Overall, this SBC isn’t value doing, except you’re a large fan of the Frenchman or want to construct a first-owner squad for long term demanding situations and goals. You’re at an advantage making an investment the ones cash into every other CB, or saving up for a great card with much more tempo.
