Looked just a touch smaller than Arshavin today so 170 looks about right. Those passing values sound fair enough for now. Given a long run in the team I feel he could push on from there, has a nice eye for a pass just the execution is lacking sometimes. On which note his TW would also need tweaking as has been mentioned by a few of us. For an inexperienced player in top-flight football he's come in and shown a good level of understanding with an ever-changing Villa lineup. He's shown good creativity though does lack on occasions picking the wrong option. I don't think the suggested values of TW: 78/79 would be out of the question, I'd probably opt for the former personally, fearing not to overrate him.
Don't remember seeing him shoot an awful lot but I think I remember a couple of shots from his debut for Scotland vs the Faroes that had a good degree of power on them. Any thoughts on his SP?
Hopefully he'll still get games even when injured players come back.
