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