Yaratıcı, teknik ayaklara dayanan, narin, kibar tatlı bir oyun şekli. Gökhan Ünal çok iyi bir rotasyon transferidir. Ayrıca tıpkı Güiza gibi savunma arkası koşuları yapmasını bilen, son vuruşu iyi bir santrafordur. Gökhan Ünal'ın Trabzon'da iyi oynayamama sebebi kafa olarak mutsuz olmasıdır. Ne zaman ki Ersun hoca şuursuzca suçu santraforlarına attı. O günden beri hem Ersun hoca yok olduk (tekrar) hem de Gökhan Ünal. Neyse işte Gökhan'da o günden beri yoktur piyasada. Ama kimse iddaa edemez yani savunma arkası koşularını, ayak içini vs.
I think his technical and physical attributes are being underrated. Technically speaking, he does well to keep the ball close to his feet and rarely ever lets the ball stray away from him. He's good in possession of the ball and does well to trap the ball when receiving all sorts of passes. He isn't really great at holding up the ball and isn't one to pull off tricks and etc. He's also not very agile and rarely loses his marker by twisting about in zig zag manner. His finishing isn't great as well. I mean, he score from all sorts of angles, but generally needs a lot of opportunities before he converts. His reading of the game is also rather poor for European standards. He does well to outsmart the average TSL, but our defensive standards are way below average. Just like Isaac Promise, he's a striker well suited to finding gaps in defence during counters. He's relatively strong and can handle playing against the average TSL defender, but isn't considered to be a powerhouse.
Only slightly stronger than Deivid, Semih and Guiza? I think not. I definitely rate him higher than Tuncay as well. His physical ability to handle playing in our league is actually greatly admired by many people in Turkey. He isn't a pushover, but you wouldn't really describe him as "powerful". He can physically handle playing against the typical butchering TSL defender, but I doubt he's as strong as Torres.
Stamina should be raised slightly. He might not be in good form, but he doesn't have any fitness issues. I know for a fact that he's played a few games past 90 minutes with Kayserispor so he isn't really that unfit. He rarely ever gets subbed off due to fatigue so a slight raise is in place.
While he is somewhat of a poacher, he doesn't always make first contact with the ball. As a result, he often makes his own goals as often as he pounces on the opportunities. He's sharp enough for our standards, but isn't wouldn't stand a chance against quality European defenders.
I remember Gökhan being described as a "boat" because of his physical maneuverability. Like I said, he almost never loses his marker by moving in a zig zag manner because he can't physically do so.
Dribble Accuracy: 79
Dribble Speed: 80
Not really quick, but capable of outrunning someone on the ball. Isn't as quick on the ball as he is off it, but he's still pretty quick on the ball.
Short Pass Accuracy: 73
I doubt his crossing ability is considerably better than his ground passes.
Short Pass Speed: 75
Doesn't struggle to play short passes to anyone.
Shot Technique: 83
Like I said, he's a striker capable of scoring from all sorts of angles, but he needs too many damn chances!
It's really weird to watch at times.
During his time with Trabzonspor, he had some sort of hair transplant and admitted to being scared of heading the ball for a few months. It really shows when he goes for the ball in the air. Prior to his surgery, he was really solid with his headers. Had good power and placement, but nowadays, he goes for placement over power. I don't know if he's afraid his hair will fall out, but he doesn't get a lot of power behind his headers. I've never rated his heading ability considerably better than his shooting ability since most of his goals are scored with his feet.
As you can see, he has a phenomenal leap and he wasn't even on good form against Ivory Coast. I definitely rate his jumping ability higher than the likes of Anelka, but I think he has some way to go before he can even compete with Mustafa Pektemek. Seeing as Toure is sitting on the same value as I'm suggesting, then I can feel comfortable knowing I'm not overrating him. His waist is actually level with Toure's shoulder!
He does well to win a lot of aerial battles against defenders even though he isn't the strongest player in our league. Didn't struggle to win a few headers when he was faced in Zapo and Ibrahim in the cup game against Bursaspor.
I wouldn't say his first touch is as erratic as his finishing. He can get some of the simplest shots wrong as times, but can control passes relatively easily. He does well to trap passes to himself.
Injury Tolerance: B
He's has been injured on a few occasions so he isn't entirely injury resistant.
His performance dips quite often during a season.

These changes don't need to be applied to the first post, but I'm using them on my OF and they seem to resemble Gökhan a lot more. Feel free to comment
