To be honest, I'm not entirely comfortable with his attack/defence ratio. His tenacity is one of his better attributes, but his inconsistency does seem to affect this tenacity quite a bit. On his bad days, he doesn't show much presence on the pitch. His composure on the ball is good and is technically gifted. He's very all-rounded in terms of defending and attacking, his ball distribution is good, but he's a sluggish decision maker on the ball. His best position is suited in the middle of the pitch, according to fans. He has a good set of lungs on him, but his tenacity is somewhat on/off. Cihan is a very conscious of what he does on the ball and there's nothing fluky about him. Cihan is basically the Emre equivalent for Sivasspor. He plays best beside a defensive midfielder, hence the reason why the fans preferred him partnering Ibrahim Dagasan in the past. I also think his aggression could do with a raise
. Some of the fans prefer him in an attacking position. In a lot of ways, he's similar to Stephen Ireland. I was thinking something like:Shirt Name: Cihan Yılmaz
Side: BHe stuck to the left flank throughout the game against Galatasaray last week. He's clearly able to play on the wing as well, because he's good at dictating the ball so he's able to switch onto his dominant foot even if he happens to be playing on the left.
Stamina: 84He has box-to-box characteristics.Top Speed
Look at that sprint. Does it look like he deserves to be on par with Luis Suarez? A slight raise is fitting.Response
: 79Reads the game well. He can anticipate where the ball will land, hence the reason why he has striker characteristics. His tackling won't be great, but he'll be able to exploit lapses in concentration of others, which he does well.
Short Pass Accuracy: 77One of the best ball distributors in the team. I don't think it's fair to rate him lower than Mehmet Yildiz.
Long Pass Accuracy: 79
Ceyhun and Mehmet Nas are the players in the squad worthy of yellow figures for their passing ability. Cihan naturally has a lot of venom in his crosses so the yellow figure for LPA is a little over the top.
Shot Accuracy: 73Good finisher. He doesn't simply thump the ball like Huddlestone. He picks his spot.
Shot Power: 81He can striker the ball hard, but nothing exceeding 30+ yards.
Shot Technique: 72Cihan is a composed finisher, not an eccentric one.
Free Kick Accuracy: 77
I don't rate his free kicks that highly enough to warrant 78
. That, combined with his shot power raise, would make him too good of a free kick taker. He doesn't deserve to be on par with Alex (from Chelsea) to deserve such a figure.
Header: 72Cihan's heading ability isn't better than his shooting.
Aggression: 80He looks like a supporting striker when opted in an advanced position.
Mentality: 81 He has a good work rate, but he doesn't seem present on the pitch sometimes.
Team Work: 78He's a sluggish decision maker, but a capable ball distributor. Doesn't deserve to be sitting higher than the captain.
Weak Foot Frequency: 4Sticks to his right foot a lot of the time.
Consistency: 5 He isn't consistent enough to warrant 6.
Doesn't have any winger characteristics so it's not really fitting for Cihan (primarily a central midfielder or attacking midfielder) to have the star.
I'll post some suggestions later on for his attack/defence ratio. He does neglect his defensive duties sometimes.
