I know how to reason and it's all well and good educating me on how to suggest values, but wouldn't it be easier if you gave realistic values in the first place? Well, I'll go for your approach:
A value of 87 in Solari's Shot Technique will make him strike the ball cleanly and with a better connection than most strikers and all midfielders, and that's simply incorrect. Moreover, it makes him a more potent player when it comes to shooting and considering he accumulated 5 goals in all competitions in the 2001/2002 season and only 1 of them in the league. It's an absolutely ridiculous value when you think about it.
An 83 for Attack makes him incredibly adapt when it comes to his attacking positional sense and off-the-ball movement and, in culmination with his Team Work, will get him into lots of goal-scoring positions which in turn will make him more of a threat in front of goal. Again, he accumulated 5 goals in all competitions in the 2001/2002 season and only 1 of them in the league. It's over the top. And, again, it puts him above most other midfielders in this department and that simply isn't true - although he did score some poacher-esque goals.
I don't believe that he warrants the Middle Shooting star as the goals that he scored "from distance" were actually just outside the opposition's box. Hardly from distance, is it? Moreover, his goals from that range had a good level of curl and, as you know, the inclusion of the Middle Shooting star diminishes the level of curl that a player has on his shots from long range and makes the shot laser-straight (like Denis Kolodin).
Moreover, Solari warrants a higher Jump value as on the rare occasions that he did score a header, he could get a decent height on his leaps. Having said that, he certainly warranted a higher Header value than a 68, particularly when you consider the accuracy and power behind his defensive and attacking headers.
And, in culmination with the removal of the Middle Shooting, Solari most definitely warrants a higher Curling value.
How's that for reasoning?
