DESCRIPTION Paulo Dybala is a surprising and promising player from the Instituto's youth squads. With 17 years, debuted in first division, having good performances in the attack of La Gloria. He uses to get back in the field in order to combine with his partners from the midfield, and then gets quick to the box to be in scoring positions. Maybe because of youth nerves he has missed some 1-on-1 opportunities, but for sure will have much time to improve. He even has started training with the U-20 Argentinian NT. A real promise of crack.
Surely everybody who likes Argentinian lower leagues have watched or will see this goals in TV by these days:
His numbers are speaking for his great moment: 17 years, 10 matches, 7 goals. Plus, he's showing a lot of class in his definitions, has lost the nervousness that (normally) had on his first matches and is a lot more self-confident.
Yes, obviously that I've watched it. He seems more aggressive, and with 80 isn't represented nowadays. I'm sure that he needs at least 3 or 4 points more in this, and may be better SA/ATT. What do you think?
Yes, what I said wasn't pointing to you, was just in general I'd give him some more matches to update, but nowadays could deserve those changes that you say, plus a little more Response, DA & DS, ST and LPS. If he was older, without doubts would have something like 78-79 in ATT, has scored goals either as a poacher as the 1st goal yesterday or against Atl. Tucumán, but also with header, 1-on-1 definitions, or mid distance shots (which he doesn't frequently try, but yesterday showed being good at it). Anyways, for being 17 years I think a +1 could be fine for ATT in the future. His DA also is surprising, take a look at the goal that Lagos scored the previous week and you'll realize. He's very difficult for the defenders to mark

I put my impressions of his performances until this moment of the tournament, but I'd like to wait until december to see him during these last matches. I discovered that in youth squads, he played mainly as AM and SS, which maybe explains his good dribbling and ball management, and the fact that he likes to get involved in gameplay.
ATT: 76/77 (+1/2) good positioning, as I said some previous posts ago, he has done goals of all kind. I wonder about 76/77 because undoubtely his RESP must go up some points, and that could compensate a lwer improvement in ATT TS/ACC: I'm not 100% sure, but he could get a little decrease in both of this stats (-1) RESP: 78 (+2) DA: 79/80 (+1/2) he feels comfortable with the ball in his feets, has a good treatment of it, and also is capable of performing tricks and kind of slaloms beetween defenders. LPS: 76 (+2) doesn't usually perform crosses, as he generally plays in the center, but when he has to be in the sides usually sends quick crosses. Also has been in charge of LFKs when Fileppi's not in the field. SA: 77 (+4) approximately. Great placing of the ball SP 81 (+1) I discussed about this value before posting with Julgui, but we ended up putting him 80. Anyways he has tried shots from outside the box some times with good power, one of them ended up in his beautiful 2nd goal against Atlanta. ST: 77/78 can shoot from difficult angles. In fact, he can turn around himself and shoot with ease, it's one of his advantages, as Dario Franco said FKA: 71 (+2) As I said he shoots LFKs when Fileppi's not in the field. He's a good FK taker from his partners and coach declarations, but isn't the first choice still and hasn't had the chance of shooting from near the box to demonstrate his quality. TECH: deserves yellow level for sure. Around 82 maybe AGG: 83/84, very aggresive as most of Instituto strikers. TW: 77 (+1) collaborates with his partners and can appear in the midfield or even in defense sometimes to help recover the ball
WFA: 4 WFF: 3 *Outside (these 3 settings show that he almost always prefer shooting with the outside of his LF rather than using his right feet)
EDIT: I found this compilation of him, not only his goals but also his action at gameplaying:

The only thing that changed in my mind is AGG, for which I had previously said 83/84. He doesn't live in the box, in fact most of times the opposite box hasn't any reference CF, Dybala stays in a kind of AM to -> SS to -> CF position. What I mean, he's not the kind of fox in the box player, he starts from 3/4 in the field and from there gets to the box. I tend to 80 in DA (is better than Picante Pereyra in this, IMO). His TECH and first touch are excellent, but maybe 81 would be much for a 18 years-old kid. He's the only player who was starter in all the 18 matches of this half year.
Excellent Matias, updated. I think that's not overrate him give such a value in TECH...it's well deserved really. The rest is just perfect. If he continues with that amount of games (and full), we should increase his condition to 6 and his stamina? (I know that we decrease it now). What about assign him *Reaction, having that low value in aggression?
Stamina for now is fine with the updated number. He almost never finishes the games because he's exhausted (sometimes looks much too tired for his young age, at about approximately 60 minutes of game). Bout *Reaction, his last goal the past weekend was a real demonstration of it, I'll keep an eye and if continues with those kind of sprints will have it for sure. Thanks for updating!
What do you guys think about giving him something like 78-79 in ATT? Really I don't remember a player of less than 18 years as him that could reach the amount of goals he has scored in his first season. His placement when inside the box is really good, always follows the attacking moves correctly. Plus, he's got a monstrous quality, his dribble gets better every match, has a great 'gambeta'.
I'm thinking also in a DEF decrease (lately has had less 'defensive' responsabilities, in the second half of 2011 he used to track back more than nowadays), STA (something between 77 and 79, incredibly for his age, he finishes the game really exhausted), better dribbling stats and LPS, and C/F:6 (has played every Instituto game as starter).
