Souness was a combative if not quite frankly scary Scottish midfielder who won an obscene amount of trophies, domestic & European.

Graeme's most successful spell as a player though came with a £350,000 transfer to Liverpool in 1978 where he became part of the Liverpool side that was dominant throughout the eighties, winning the championship five times, three European Cups medals and four League Cup medals. Souness was the archetypal dominant midfielder, fearsome in the tackle, great passer, a leader of men and scorer of some terrific goals. He was one of Bob Paisley's majestic trio of Scottish captures, with Kenny Dalglish and Alan Hansen and when only five months into his Anfield career, he supplied the pass at Wembley for his room-mate Dalglish to score the goal that beat Bruges to retain the European Cup. In general during his Anfield career the Scotland captain responded brilliantly to Paisley's demand to curb his explosive temperament and he became a midfielder of immense stature.

Hello there.
Good stats, but i've got some points. The potent nature of his muscles, gave this strong player the abilitiy to make good Accelerations. He was not fast, but acceleraion could well reach 80, or even 81.
At Short and Long Pass Speed, i admit i was surprised to see that the values did not reach at least 85. From watching videos of this player, it's clear in my opinion SPS and LPS need a boost.
That said, i congratulate you once more for your good work and expertise in British players.

he is not that slow.
i think DS and ACC should be raised
Passing speeds could also be increased by 1 or 2
Also , should he get Box to Box and 1-Touch play as cards?

I may try and work on a Souness set in the upcoming weeks. Fantastic player, combative in that Scotland midfield but with a touch of genius about him. So rare to find a mix of both.
