Large veteran striker, played for Ajax, PSV and Sheff Wed. Positionally pretty good, altough his lack of dribbling skills and speed makes him only usefull as target man.

This guy is still playing! :shock:

I remember him from his Sheffield Wednesday days at least 12 years ago. Incredible.

How's he doing for Heerenveen?

He is useful altough I have the feeling that his ability is now declining rapidly. He is probably the slowest player in the league, but his size, shot (free kicks) and intelligence (maybe a bit underrated in his stats) make him a decent player in the league if you use him in the right way.

:o Is he really this slow and unagile, particularly on the ball?

I saw him at Nürnberg afew season ago and I think the stats are fine - he`s extremely unagile.

Hehe yeah sometimes his dribbling is just funny to watch because it almost looks like he is in slow motion.
Look at 1:55:D He is just walking but nutmegging 2 players in 5 seconds

From 0:15-1:05, 2:32-2:54, and 5:17-end you can see some of his goals.

Sibon shoots with a max power of 131 km/h (LINK), same as Hitzlsperger (LINK, rank 14).

Hence his Shoot Power should increase on 94 just like Hitzlsperger.

I tried him out with 94 SP and it was way too easy to score with him. Van Breukelen was the opposition keeper and the shots was too hard even for him to save.

Maybe in his prime he could have orange SP, but I don't think he deserves it now. Although I haven't seen him recently, I saw him a lot at Sheffield Wednesday. Yes, he could strike the ball very hard, but if you boosted his SP, you'd need to reduce his SA and ST for him to not be a goal machine.

Alex Pastoor tried to convince him to join Excelsior but he eventually chose for John van 't Schip in Australia.

Moved.
