Attack is too high. Xavi has that value to help him with playing killer balls. The differnce between xavi and Juninho in this area is huge. As juninho wasn't really a final ball player, more of a dribbler/teamwork build up player. Not only that but if you talk about positiong, xavi is much better. Hes really a master of staying unmarked anywhere on the pitch, you can easily see many playmakers man marked and being taken out of the game (sneijder vs busquests?) but when can you say xavi was marked out of the game?
Old value of 80 was more than enough for Juninho.
Passing old value was better. Juninho was and is just flawless technically, so naturally so were his short passes. He wasn't really a deep ball passer like xavi/iniesta/cesc, he usually stuck to dribble pass and go, rather than penetrating deep passes. But when the need came (sideback running past last defender) he could make very difficult long passes. And his general passing from just touch and go, was very fast thinking, fast acting passes. And never really losing any accuracy because of the minimal amount of time allowed while making the pass nor the distance or difficulty. Wasn't a complex short passer, but was pretty flawless in his execution regardless of the situation. I've had him at a 92 forever, and it's what I'd like to see him at here.
As for his SPS... this is a hard one. Maybe it's because it's been years and I'm making a mistake... but Juninho was mainly a short distance short passer, and his regular passes didn't have all that much speed. Problem is that when he needed to put any distance on them that was needed, he could, but from my recollection that was rare. I'd like to take him really down so there is a big gap between him and players who frequently passed from deep like xavi/laudrup. So he will still be amazingly accurate in his all round passing game, but not as effective at killer balls as xavi/iniesta. I'd go with something like 92 spa with 87/88 sps. Thats enough sps for him to hit the long passes when he needs to, but limits his overall effectiveness.
lpa: His long passing I've always felt he is one of the best ever in this regard. I don't remeber anyone ever being so dangerous from anywhere on the pitch because of freekick delivery. Lyon could get a freekick from the halfway line, and juninhos delivery into the box would be 100% perfect and could always create a goal scoring chance due to this. The accuracy on his freekick delivery is just... phenomenal. His freekicks must have resulted in well over a 100 goals, not from goals but from putting the ball into a danger area, may not have been a direct assits, but would have created the goal regardless. His open play long passes were flawless aswell. His wing crosses would be beckham-esque, for both accuracy and curl. He played as a side mid fielder a few times for lyon, that was probably the reason why. I rate him at 94 personally, but could easily be a 95. Speed is just too high aswell. I understand fully why he has this but.. I'd go with something between 88-90. His long passes were fast, no doubht. But they were more based on pure accuracy and curl/swerve dip. The difference between him and Gerrard should be much higher. I mean gerrard really just blats the ball as hard as he can, juninho didn't.
def: Pretty bad tackler, and reckless quite frequently
But he defend a lot when he needed too, as he was the leader and took responsibility. I'd go with 63/64. His response defiantly needs to come down to a low green value.
Dunno about that SP of 92 either. He didn't really blast them that hard.. but.. he could score from anywhere because of the power he could put on them, but too much will negate from dip/curl. Maybe 92 is fine.. I need to test this.
curl is absoultly 98 without doubhts.
mentality is fine at 82.
teamwork.. I don't think he needs this value, 89 or so would be better.
era is long too. Which means he should have varying values. def lower in earlier days, teamwork higher in later day. If were considering his first years, which are in this set, he needs trickster. He was more consrvative in his later years and relied mainly on close control, but would still pull of the occasional scissor and inside bounce. Classic 10 needs to go without t doubts, wasn't like this at all.
