Well, since we are talking about updates here, let's try to analyze the first post stats:
- He sure isn't a pure poacher, he don't play on the center, inside of the box. He plays pretty much like Alexandre Pato, floating around the box, like a Second Striker.
~> Defence: 40 - I feel this a bit high, in comparison with Pato (who has 36), but I wouldn't disagree with putting Pato at 38 too. Both players that don't stick always close to the box, they back to help the midfielders to construct the attacking moves.
~> Balance: 78
- I would consider one point more, since he's smaller than Pato and has at least the same strength in hand-to-hand combats, who has 78
too. So, 79
would be my number here.
~> Top Speed: 85
- Quite sure he's at least close to players like Messi, Aguero. Even better than Mauro Zárate, but I'd put them on the same value for now.
~> Agility: 88
- Quite sure he's close to Walcott, I'd put at 90
~> Dribble Accuracy: 82
- Totally sure that he's a lot better than this, probably 84
would be better. He can glue the ball at his feet with great accuracy, IMO, in the future, will be even more, if we consider Pato at 86
~> Dribble Speed: 84
- Again, another value that I'm totally sure that he's a lot better, probably 87
would be better. Don't loose any speed with the ball. Close to Pato, who has 90
~> Short Pass Accuracy: 76
- I would consider a point less here, on pair with Zárate.
~> Short Pass Speed: 77
- I'd put on pair with Zárate two, so, for me, one point less again.
~> Long Pass Accuracy: 72 - Don't have idea, I personally have him at 73, same of Pato.
~> Long Pass Speed: 70 - Don't have idea, I personally have him at 74, same of Pato.
~> Shot Power: 78
- Not the powerful shooter, but still able to put some power on his shots. I'd consider a 81
~> Shot Technique: 82
- A bag of tricks there, he's really good at this aspect. Capable of chip shots, shooting from bad angles and everything. Would put at 83
for now, but sure he'll be better in the future.
~> Technique: 83
- Quite outstanding trapping of ball, capable of putting tricks with easy, would put at 84
~> Agression: 85
- Would consider a point raise, or even two, but pietja gives to me the suggestion of *Reaction. My problem is that Pato has AGG: 87
plus *Reaction star, so I would consider the *Reaction and AGG: 86
~> Team Work: 74 - Would put at 76
for now, considering Pato has 77
and isn't any better than Vela in link-up.
So, it would looks like with this:
