i'd like to suggest some stuff:

attack to be lowered to 86
stamina to be lowered to 84
response to be lowered to 87
SA lowered to 84
consistency lowered to 7

SP to be increased to 85
agility should come up to the low 80's. i'm thinking 83?
DS should come up to about 85/86 - he didn't slow down that much when dribbling to be perfectly honest.
he could also have the *passing and *outside
and both dribbling stars

then he'd look about right me reckons.

87/88 ST is better, I wouldn't put him above Eduardo and Van Persie. For SP, he hit it no harder than Torres, so I suggest 84. Curl could be 82-83. Remove *passing, in my opinion he doesn't quite deserve it.

ok agree to those suggestions (except removing passing - i don't think he always took the shooting option when in position but could try to provide an assist as well) but you've evaded my question about *reaction.

Ah, apologies about that. Yes, I think it'd definitely fit his playing style and movement if he were to have reaction*. About passing, I think it's worth discussing. It'd be good if we could get some other prem heads in here to give their view.

I think his DA and technique are way too high, considering Torres has DA 84 and Tech 86, or Drogba at DA 82/Tech 86, or Anelka at DA 83/Tech 83 i can't see how Gudjhonsen was this much superior.

but he was much superior to the players you've mentioned. his close ball control and technique are probably one of his most underrated aspects of his game in general. well that's my opinion anyway :D

Well ur right about DA, i guess it could stay the way it is, but i'd drop technique a couple points. Let's see what others think ;)

Regarding Tech, I´d go with 85-86, on pair with players such as Drogba, Maakay, Sir Bobby Charlton, Zamorano, Butragueño...he´s not superior in that area to any of this players, really. ;)

I thought Thierry Henry's BB should of been lowered when comparing him with Gudjohnsen, but actually, I think Gudjohnsen could come up in BB. He was definately stronger than Henry imo, who whilst had quality balance, did not possess the power in his upper body that Gudjohnsen did. He, like Berbatov, was not very aggressive (maybe why he's underrated ?) and so his strength was more of a passive quality (though I think he was a bit stronger than Berba). But when needed he would destroy defenders physically, only recent memory I can think of was against Faye for Spurs, also I remember him easily outmuscling the likes of Ferdinand (87) and Carragher (88?) in their prime. The guy was immovable at times and players seemed to just bounce off him. To be honest I wouldn't go any lower than 88 for BB.

Also his passing and vision was quality, certainly no worse that Berbatov, and possibly better. Teamwork is probably fine but I'd like SPA to come up 1 and SPS 3, his passing range and power was better than this. I think speed might be a touch underrated, not sure, was he slower than Gilardino ? Not sure why his response is this high either ? ATT, SA & ST might well be overrated too in comparison with Berbatov. He was one of my favourite players though Eidur, I think he's generally quite underrated as a player.

Updated to new format and made a few changes added player cards. Thoughts, suggestions? I don't think he was this slow TBH. Maybe tech could come down slightly, I think while he had a great first touch and was so technically sound, his first touch just wasn't that good pretty reguarly. Not sure what to do with Barca set, looks like it needs a lot of changes.

edit: how are 6 memebrs viewing this topic?
