Really surprising debut. He played like 60' being really active and with Morel the best in Independiente. Moving around a lot, helping in defence with an awesome sacrifice and being really intelligent to distribute the ball and link up with Rosales. I'm surprised about his current teamwork, it seems he's everywhere in everymoment. Good at tackling and his SPS is really good at least for what he shown yesterday. EDIT: Wow, just that. Awesome player, I'm sorry but the whole set looks really underrated and wrong. He's supportive as hell and really but really intelligent, it's difficult to watch him doing a wrong decision and giving a bad pass. He's really reliable in passing, short and long. Yesterday he sent a cross of 50 metres with an awesome speed which reached exactly the foot of Morel. Also he ran a lot, he's a box to box player sometimes, and the definition of Free Roaming suits him, he appears everywhere and participates in each gameplay. He has a great response too, he anticipated in 1st goal and in Rosales' goal he went to pressure D'Angelo to make him punch the ball. Really one of most intelligent players I've seen lately, reliable and difficult to see him losing the ball. Also he played half of the second half injured and ran more than anyone...he makes a lot of dirty work (all of what Battión doesn't make). Played like RCMF and sometimes like RMF but he appears in the whole field. Good management of the ball and his ACC is kinda good.
Vs Boca (2nd Leg Cup). He's a real beast of sacrifice and play simple. Imho he's one of most intelligent players I've seen in last years as CMF in AFA. He knows everything, he makes all simple and the amount of energy he spends in each match is really impressive, he's constantly running everywhere, covering, helping in defence to Vargas. He runs so much and his mentality is even better i'd say. The last two matches he was injured and he continued playing more than 20 minutes and he didn't decrease his level, it's just outstanding. Yesterday he didn't participate so much in attack as in 1st leg but he's always a 'rueda de auxilio'. Reliable in passing, his SPS is insane. Good for him, he was replaced by an injurie at 15/20' of second half. Hope he could play vs Godoy Cruz on Sunday. Vs Unión. And again injured At 17' he had to go out, just in the game he was backing. He played as RMF and after a kick of an Unión's player. He's definitely a C.
I know he played little but the set is so wrong that I can't bear it in game. Updated with precise notes on him and if it's something wrong I can change then. Incredible player, but so much injurie prone.
I think that you tremendously overrated him in some areas. DA 80? He can't control the ball well. Tech 80? He has a problems with trapping the ball. SPA 81/SPS 85? Never was that good in this! Errors fair count of passes, especially to make real difficult pass is complicated for him.
To not offend, but for the best I propose to you to be not so fanatic with the stats. Or what I mean. When player performs well for our El Rojo, you sometimes raise his stats in crazy way in some areas. And when player plays bad, you almost destroys him, how it was with Battion. And now you want to raise his stats again. It can't be. To reflect current players performances isn't bad at all, but the way must be a little bit more careful. Battion played badly one semester, and you made him look like player for B Nacional at most. But, obviously, Battion is not only one semester or even a season. Is more than ten years of career. And all players have good and bad moments.
So, it's obviously that sets have to represent current abilities, but I think not in this crazy way, when once player was God, than destroyed and after raised a lot again.
