INFO:

Spoiler: show
Gifted with an extraordinary technical ability, aided to his good physical shape and strong charisma, enormous ambition and total dedication to his job, led him to become one of his generation greatests, with a fantastic career full of conquests.

Coming from "Os Pastilhas" (means "The Gums"), a small neighbourhood from Cova da Piedade, Figo (born: 04/11/1972) arrived at Sporting Clube de Portugal (SCP) with 13 years and shortly after he was being summoned up to the youth national squads in every rank, getting to be European Champion of u17 in 1989 and World Champion of u20 in 1991.

April 1990 saw Figo's debut with the SCP jersey, he was only 17 at the time but it was only in the 1991/92 season that he grabbed his place in the starting eleven, getting to the National Squad prime team as well.

With the arrival of Carlos Queiroz to SCP (who have been his coach in the NT youth squads), Figo blossomed as a footballer becoming the most shining star of the SCP team and being desired troughout all Europe. Sousa Cintra, president of SCP, failed to renew his contract and Figo departed to Barcelona after being forbidden of playing in Italy as he signed for Parma and Juventus.

Luis Figo was the greatest winger in the world during the last three decades and considered by many to be the greatest footballer ever to born in Portugal. He was a playmaking right-winger who had average speed but remarkable dribbling and the ability to make pinpoint passing and imagination to create assists. Figo started his famous with playing in Portugal "Golden Geneation Team" which consist of Paulo Sousa, Rui Costa and Jao Pinto, was notable for their beautiful style of play in midfield. Figo also was one of the most important roles helping Portugal reach the semi-finals in EURO 2000 and FIFA World Cup 2006 and the final of Euro 2004. Figo is one of the few footballers to have played for both the Spanish rival clubs FC Barcelona and Real Madrid where he won the Ballon d'Or in 2000 and FIFA world player of the year in 2001. He also played for Sporting Lisbon in his early career and Inter Milan in Late career. Due to his consistency, He played almost 800 games during his club professional career and scored more than 100 goals.

DA is fine at 97. he relied on pure ball control more so than ronaldinho and messi.

Well said ( Also Luisao 1 page back) there's alot of stats that define how a player is a better dribbler than someone else not just DA. Maybe for ladders sake it could be on par with Stojkovic on 96.
LPA could be decreased by 3 points I still unsure about dribble speed I really dont rate him quicker on the ball than say Ginola and Pires.

Good point. Even though I think classic Ginola's DS is a bit underrated, I'll back down on my previous statement about DS raise for Figo.
His current value suits him very well, and there's no plausible reason to increase it. I wouldn't agree with a decrease though.

I think he's fast enough, honestly. Not too fast, not too slow. I would probably change the Acc/TS ratio though.

What about the discussion on LPA, for how long will he keep being better than Pirlo & Co. with his long passes?

not long probably. just being a bit lazy tbh :oops:. anyway, so the general opinion is that he can't be rated over a prime Pirlo? ok seems fair. but i see, a few post back, Xavi has been brought into the discussion as well and he has 90 for LPA if i'm not mistaken?

Yeah, i think i was the one who mentioned Xavi. I think i also mentioned Simão Sabrosa. I really can't see Figo as such a better crosser than all those great passers he played with in the NT. Simão was and still is a great crosser, i'd rate just slightly worst than Figo. Rui Costa was probably even better than Figo with his passes long from deep (and who can forget that perfect cross to assist João Pinto against England ?). Xavi is just as good or better than Figo too. The only thing were i actually think Figo could be better than all of them is in the swerve he used in his crosses, that was amazing. But regarding the general accuracy of his long passes, there's no way he is even close to Pirlo.

And just to appear from darkness, let me add (again...and again) my toughts on Figo.

I will write just about the crossing.

First of all, crosses for wingers and side mids are taken most often from the 3/4 or 4/4 line area.
Starting from this last premise, it turns odd to compare directly Figo to Xavi, Pirlo or Rui Costa.

Because a long pass is not a cross!

I don't recall seeing often any one of those 3 getting to the crossline (see this irony - "crossline") and attempt crosses.
They are marvellous passers with long passes (the quarterback thing - just like Platini used to do with Boniek) but that's that - even the technical movement is not the same as a cross implies normally a 90º cross while the long back pass (Pirlo, Xavi, Rui Costa) is usually taken with their front towards their attack and not on a sided position.

You have to be able to understand this logic in order to correctly rate all of them in the long pass department.

SA is overrated. I don't think he is more accurate than Pavel Nedved. I think 81 or 80 would suffice.

Agree, i have him at 81 and he shows good placement in most of his shots.

Good update, agree with all the changes. Now could you make the stats appear in every page? 'Cause that's really useful, you know, instead of having to go to page one to see the stats :oops:

Click edit in the first post and there's an option at the bottom. It's the last check box, it says "Show on top of every page" ;)

Haha.

Now that i take another look at the set, what would you think of:


Balance: 83>80 - Nasri @ 79 (possibly underrated, it's not easy to push him down), Robben @ 81 (overrated imo), Bale @ 82 (WAY stronger than Figo), Nené @ 76 (also likes to dive), Reyes @78, Joaquin @ 79, etc... Figo was a bit of a diver, and although he looked kinda strong, he wasn't. Maybe while at Barça, he had a diferent attitude, but not in Madrid.

Short Pass Accuracy: 87>85
Short Pass Speed: 84>82 - Something like Messi, who imo is even a better passer than Figo, and Figo has *passing.

Shot Power: 87>86 - from experience he tends to shoot harder than irl, although we know he could shoot hard especially from long range.

Technique: 95 - I would never put him on Ibra/Berba's level, or so close to Messi. I have him @ 92, but what about 93/94?

Agree with you.

And let's drop his values a little please. He never was at Cruyff, Messi, Ibra, Zidane and not even close to Ronaldinho's level in DA.

DA is fine as it is. We've been over it a billion times.

I think TECH was supposed to drop to 93 a while back. I certainly remember agreeing to it.

His SPA stat has been changed a few times i think. It was raised from the original value i gave him, although i can't remember the exact figure. I do think 85 would suit him more.

SP is fine i think.

Not sure about lowering BAL either. I don't think he was that easy to push down.

I agree with all except lowering BB, like already Uzair said, he wasn't so weak as you suggesting, current value is ok, he knew refuse opponent and his musculature was superior compared to most players against whom he played.

I'm against lowering his BB.

I think the current value suits him perfectly. It makes his BB standard for a guy with his built which is correct for Luis Figo. He wasn't a strong player but he wasn't weak either. Also I don't agree that Bale is WAY stronger than Figo was.
