Injury Tolerance: C -> B
He's doing way better phisically these last months and has barely got injured. Plays every match.
Balance: 83 -> 86-88
Puyol is still one of the strongest players in the world if we take into account his height and weight. Honestly, i haven't seen him deserve such a ''low'' value for his balance recently. He deserves to be as strong as KP Boateng, who's valued at 86 (not to mention he's larger). Puyol made drogba his b*tch in both Barcelona chelsea matches, both tactically and physically, which to be honest made me feel bad for Drogba, he outmuscled a Drogba valued at 89. I know he's due for a decline but it would probably leave him at 86, and puyol deserves equal or higher then that. Puyol also easily held a BB 84 Khedira when the ball was in the penalty box at El Clasico, Khedira just outsmarted him and scored, Khedira had speed going towards the ball aswell. Puyol also had his shirt held for over 5 seconds by Mesbah in a corner back then when Barcelona played Milan in the first leg, Puyol still didn't stop AND managed to head it quite well. The only player i've recently seen that beat him was Zlatan (92) who completely destroyed Pique, but Puyol could still kind of battle him. Puyol at 88 would be best imo.
Stamina: 87 -> 99
Simply tireless player, everytime a teammate falls, he'll run the whole 100 mts. to prove why the other team deserves a card, which is every minute.
Top Speed: 82 -> 83
He's still fast at long distances, he just struggles in the acceleration part as he's gotten slower in that aspect and agility-wise. But he still runs faster then his hair does.
Acceleration: 81 -> 78-79
He still has a decent top speed and acceleration for a 34 year old defender, but his acceleration has come down quite a bit. He gets eaten in acceleration by speedy players such as C. Ronaldo (showed it last match) and even Zlatan beat him in speed aswell. He should come down at least to 80.
Header: 83 -> 84-85
I have my doubts here since i still don't know wether Header determines the positioning at set plays or Attack does. But even so, he heads it excellent and if he misses, he BARELY does.
