Damn, I am awful at remembering to do things. These observations were from nearly a year back when I was watching a lot of barca to make a Ronaldos set, wasn't aiming to fix the team, so I kinda just forgot about suggestions. Anyways, I just got it into my head last week that I need to fix up the 1996 squad, so I watched a few matches to refresh my mind. I'll try get around to as many as I can before I forget.
Okay so... this set is really excellnt work by konami. Theres a few things I'd question though.. Maybe this is too harsh a word, but he looks quite cumbersome on the ball. Although hes not, you feel like he can be a liability in possesion, hes slow, hes weak, his dribbling isn't outstanding, but he keeps the possesion flowing anyways, it's strange to look at. Hes so far away from say.. Pirlo. Whos only 3 cm's shorter, but much quicker in his body movement and so much silkier in his control. Considering his main weakness is his movements in general his current value looks generous, could see a few points drop. This is also pre-injury.. he was even worse after it.
Not solid defensively, and not much aggressive in going for balls, but again... manages to do his job quite well. His style is relaxed and slow paced, very un-energetic, his movement in general is also quite far from the likes of pirlo and xavi. As I said in the quote above, his movement to support his team isn't that good. TBH, Konamis 88 also looks generous when you consider the differnce between him and Pirlo. I'd give them the benefit of the doubht though, and just drop it to their value. With perhaps a response drop as well. Stamina defintly needs to come down too for these reasons, konamis 80 again, is fine.
I looked at Konamis value of 99 as wrong, as surely pirlo is better in this regard. But maybe, he really isn't. The are both so far ahead of most players, but Pirlos tend to find their target less than Peps. I actually starting to think, the 99 LPA is right. I'm not positive on it though.
Lower balance too is needed, hes not strong at all and can't resist much either.
