Ibrahim Afellay

Spoiler: show
The young PSV playmaker Ibrahim Afellay. Afellay debuted aged 17 for PSV in 2004, quickly becoming a regular for the topside the following 2 years. 2005-2006 proved to be the youngsters' breakthrough due to the injury-struggles of Vayrynen and Beasley. Afellay also made his Champions League debut against Schalke 04 in that season.

After the departures of Van Bommel and Vogel, Afellay quickly grew out as a regular in the PSV midfield along with Timmy Simons; playing 23 Eredivisie matches and scoring two times. It was also the first season one of Afellay's weaknesses showed though, as the playmaker suffered from several little niggling injuries. His injury tolerance didn't improve much in the following years but his abilities steadily grew, now making him one of the best players in our league.

Onto the stats. Afellay is very offensive and rarely if ever tracks back. If he does track back though, he usually causes a foul because of his rash challenges and non-existent sliding abilities. He's had a lot of luck so far, because plenty of red card offences were not punished. Afellay is very quick from the go and can outpace a lot of Eredivisie players in the first few yards. He's also extremely agile, skipping past challenges with relative ease; if not he will be probably fall down injured. He's also a regular diver, afraid of getting challenged and picking up an injury. Ibrahim has impressive dribbling ability and can pick out a really good pass. His short is very hard but inaccurate, he often misses shots and overall isn't very productive goal-wise.

IMO he's the only player from FCB squad who searches often the long range shoot. He has a nice shot from distance, not enough to give *MS but I really think he tries enough to deserve the card. Ok with not adding 1-touch, like I said, I'm not sure at all, so for this I want to hear your opinions.

for his moves darting run is enough. no need for mazing run because he never shows that twisty and turny move in real life.
can any one tell me what tricks he uses to warrant trickster? he is not a trickster which would made him slowing down and doing tricks and got past opposition.what he does is either uses pure dribbling or his pace(for which darting run is must).
also he doesn't deserve that 1 touch cause he never shows that quality consistently.
yes not only in barca also in psv and netharlands he shows his quality to warrant long ranger.
long ranger is the tendency card to make space in every situation for a long distance shot .
on other side,*middle shooting is the ability to make powerful and accurate shot from distance. its a special ability.The card is a tendency, the star is a ability.
so i think long ranger without middle shooting is quite realistic for him.

Yeah I know what you mean, he did the same at PSV. But the Long Ranger card (mostly) effects off the ball movement, it's a positional card. When you're attacking and when you're around the box, lets say you're on the left-wing with a player, you'll see a player with the card positioning himself around the edge of the box so you can pass the ball too him and take a shot (this will of course not happen all the time, just like with the other cards). Essien did this a lot before this season. While Afellay is someone who if he gets the ball, he'll dribble a bit and take a shot every now and then. So while you're right about him, the card won't do what you are looking for to recreate.
(You can even give the players who don't often shoot from outside the box but position themself like that, as long as he has bad shooting, with low SP being the most important thing, stats.)

@tasmin
He does like using 'scissor skills' but he probably doesn't do it enough to warrant the card.

I think the same, but if you dont give him the card at least he deserves a raise in shot tech,power and accu... thats my opinion. :D

i think that CMF should be put as optional as i really doubt that he'll play anywhere other than SS and AMF in Barca, for now that is...

You, my good man, are lying.

Anyway let's get the cards/stars fixed and close this thread please. Everything he does gets exaggerated because he's a Barcelona player and it's very annoying.

Updated with my suggestions taking in count every other suggestion. I'll try to clean up the thread a bit, when the forum can keep a bit of calm we can discuss if he deserves the SPA/SPS update or if him deserves Quick Scissors Skills.

Yesterday he made a fool out of Dani Alves in some counter attack following a corner. He passed him with a scissors dribble and outran him with the ball on his feet!
Based on his Barca and late NL performances I would agree to higher DS and for me its quite sure he deserves the Quick Scissors Skills card. Also he is showing he can dribble, cross and pass with his leftie aswell. At least WFA: 6 IMO. Sometimes I think it should even be 7.

Well, Tasmin PMme with the same suggestion about Scissor Skills. So we can add it to him, do you think he deserves a raise on WFF too, Fides?
I won't unlock the topic yet, maybe in some weeks when all the players are in holidays period.

Oh lol, didnt even notice it was locked:P Uhm, yeah I think WFF could be 6 aswell, but that is less clear then his WFA, which should be at least 6 for 100% sure.

I suggest TS 89-90 for affelay. He is very very fast. faster than Pedro and Messi! Watch him against Malaga last season final la liga game for barca. affelay was electric. he repeatedly burned malaga center-halves.

But yeah his speed is rightly rated now. Agility could be a litttle bit higher though. And perhaps attack 78?

I think we can change the following:

Shot Accuracy: 74 (+1)
Weak Foot Accuracy: 7 (+1)

Return to “Olympiacos FC”
