yeah, i'm completely aware that my sets may look a bit odd when being compared. but the first reason is that i've never given a rat's ass regarding the ladders and comparing the players at that way, i always use KONAMI as a benchmark for sets and for STA, Condition & MENT i turn on ML so i can get the accumulated fatigue system working as i find it quite easier to rate those 3 stats that way.
this season he evidently dropped his level of performances a bit, he became a bit more conservative from what i've seen and has slightly improved on his defensive game, he still attacks the oppositions full-back but nowadays it's more a tactical game of creating space for another player. he doesn't take on players as he used to a few seasons back, when he gets the ball on a flank it's crossing time mostly he will take on his man a couple of times through the game of course, but the number of times he does it has considerably dropped. now looking at it, i even doubt that he needs *Lines which i believe i've been quite foolish to give him in the first place as it'll increase the number of times he attacks the backline. with the set he'll maybe eventually run out of STA and will recreate the effect of small disappearances coming to the end of the game. but considering that he has an 6 for Condition it'll guarantee him that he gets enough good arrows and stamina replenishments throughout the season to play at least 25+ games.
he's more of a winger IMO than a full/wing-back with his attitude down the flank, he's the one with the highest MENT rating among the 3 of them as his work rate down the flank is immense and just as Armero is the only guy operating down his flank and constantly attacks the backline and looks for a cross as his whole game concept depends on beating his man a delivering a cross and that's the reason behind him having *Lines as well. with his playing style he'll use considerably more STA than Maicon would and will mostly end the game with an empty STA bar or in the red zone. Giving him the highest MENT value among the 3 is because he still is able to track back and be a slight contribution in both defence and offense, but still more present up front, at least as a passing option.
the guy who definitely deserves an orange for STA, but i've been a bit reluctant on it because i've given him the highest Condition value which will reccuperate his stamina from game to game without any fuss. he's again as Maggio the only guy operating on his flank and is used as an attacking outlet to deliver crosses and has no whatsoever business in the build up. also he has the highest AGG value among them and the highest STA value which is quite obvious and *Lines as well. with that style of play he'll end up near the red zone or sometimes even in the red zone itself. but the key is that he'll be able to keep those kind of performances throughout the season without any fuss and will have absolutely no problem with accumulated fatigue like Maggio and Maicon would.
Hope i've been able to answer your question.
