Well then thats a tough one I'd still give him a 2 if thats correct. How does Condition: 2/3 sound to you?

I'd still be hesitant on 2... Like players who haven't played half as much as him would be higher than him.

Yes but that's not because they don't have the physical capabilities to, they just don't get the chance due to tactical reasons.

Are you sure that he deserves all these stars?

If I'm not wrong, I think is the only player that has these 4.

If this guy was fully fit week in week out he would be one of the best defenders in the world IMHO he has pace great control the lot.

As a Tottenham supporter I must admit that his Balance is probably a little bit over-rated. Combined with his height, weight and top speed it makes him pretty-much unstoppable.

Wouldn't 89-90 for BB be better?

Why? The only thing I could see a possible decrease in is attack and balance, if anything I might raise his technique and curling abilities, he is a very very good defender, he just can't play every week.

I wouldn't argue with a slight DA increase also.. he's quite adept at bringing the ball out from the back and he's always seemed quite comfortable on the ball on the occasions he's played as a DM.

Totally agree! Really, King without injuries would be in the top 15 IMO.

Thats hardly enough to warrant a condition of 6, Becks. Also he may have played 30 games, but he didn't play 30 games in a row, did he? His fitness is really poor and sometimes even unable to play 2 games in a row. I personally have it at 3.

William GALLAS, ALEX Rodrigo Dias da Costa, Sol CAMPBELL, Jonathan WOODGATE, Matthew UPSON

Positionally I think he's better than all of these.

I assume you mean positionally? I'd rate Gallas higher than all those mentioned tbh, I personally think King's timing is better than his positional sense and tackling accuracy. I'll give him a slight tweak soon if no-one minds, mainly because he's a wee bit underrated in technical areas.

No problem with me, but I'd personally drop his BB by a point or two as I suggested.

Kind is an outstanding defender and deserves such good stats, but with that BB he is just too unstoppable ;)

Would it be overkill to give an 8 for Consistency? Despite the injury which forces him to miss games (and training) he slots back in and never seems to have a bad game. Also as you mentioned, his Condition could easily come down to a 3.
