Bernd SCHUSTER | 1980-1985

Postby Brezza » 2009 May 06, 21:57

Nickname: "der Blonde Engel" (the Blonde Angel)

Image

Club: FC Barcelona



Growth type: Early Peak

INFO:

'A true midfield general, Bernd Schuster was the driving force of Barça throughout nearly all of the eighties. the talismanic German should be regarded as a rival to Zico, Platini, Boniek and Maradona for the tag of best footballer of the 80's. However, despite winning the European Championship and spending 13 successful years bossing games in La Liga for Spain's 3 big clubs, it's a crying shame that Schuster will be remembered almost as much for his controversial off field persona as for his footballing prowess. Portrayed by the media as an early "enfant terrible" of European football, his disputes with various coaches and players led to transfers, seasons in the reserves, and, most famously, an early retirement from the German national team. Whilst this just seems to have added to the Schuster legend, few would argue that the "Blonde Angel" would have had a major impact on any of the international tournaments he subsequently missed. Schuster returned to Germany in the latter years of his playing career, but will forever be associated with his time in Spain, and those arguments, that mop of blond hair, those thunderous 30 yard drives, and those defence-splitting, slide-rule passes. Legendary stuff.'

He formed a great partnership with Maradona at Barca and later won the title and got Barca to a European Cup Final. In all from midfield he scored 106 from 295 for Barca an impressive strike rate.

Due to disagreements with Barca and the German football federation not play for Germany at tournament level after his impressive 1980 Euro tournament. With Schuster in the German national side, Germany may well have won the World Cup in 1982 and 1986.

According to Schuster himself, his premature retirement from the German National Team was due to a major disagreement with the managements of both Barcelona and the German National Team on either side of a friendly match against Brazil.

Stats Explanations:

Spoiler: show
Speed

The clear big difference from his current set is his speed stats. Much like Platini, Schuster was a very elegant player who usually slowed down the ball, brilliant at bringing real composure to the midfield. He wasn't exactly a slow player either though, there's a brief 10 second clip of him making a pacey run through the middle for barca here: maybe a case of rating a player based on one youtube video though as he really wasn't that kind of player at all and didn't show his pace that regularly. Platini showed more when going on some of his bursting 1-2 runs into the box.

Positional Sense

The most interesting thing about him was how he lined up positionally. He actually started his early career as a libero playing some games there for West Germany at Euro 1980, but at Barcelona he seemed to have complete freedom to his midfield position, playing as some sort of classical playmaker/holding midfielder/ sweeper hybrid, :lol: he would even drift into wide positions to send in brilliant crosses on occasion as well. So despite being a classic playmaker he took up some really deep positions to help out his team, actually moving to a holding midfielder role more permanently later in his career at Real and Atletico. Despite taken up good defensive position's he wasn't really a very an assertive player like you would expect most (former) sweepers to be, at times he would just stand around letting the work-horses do all the closing down.. complicated dude :P

Passing

He also hand a superb range of passing, was a great striker of the ball and could drift into some excellent attacking positions so I guess in modern comparisons he was a like a later era Paul Scholes mixed with Xabi Alonso. Much like those two players as well as fellow Legendary German playmakers Günter Netzer and Wolfgang Overath his long passing was his bread and butter. An absolute expert deliver of pinpoint crossfield passes and his passing vision overall was exceptional, Aragones said that Schuster read the game as well as anyone he'd ever seen, "Sometimes while sat on the bench I thought it would be perfect now if he passed the ball forward and he would! He would always pass at the right time"

Teamwork

I haven't given him a huge boost in terms of teamwork though. I dont think he deserves much more based on his movement, he played a more containing role with the occasional hollywood defence splitting pass thrown in rather than an pass-move type of player. So something in the mid 80's range is fine.

Not sure why shot power was rated that low either he was known for the occasional 30 yard piledriver. Relied far more on the power/technique on his shots rather than placement so 85 SA was pretty overdone. Excellent Volley-er of the ball as well so St could be raised.

At age 21, in 1981, he received a bad injury on his right knee by Athletic Bilbao defender Andoni Goikoetxea.

this guy must have something against FCB players :shock:

Never base SA on goal-scoring records. ;)

Shot Accuracy: 85>80 (on Zidane level, looks fine)

P06 - Speed Merchant
P07 - Mazing Run
P08 - Pinpoint Pass
S02 - Passer
S04 - PK Taker

He can't get Pinpoint Pass, an AMF can't have it; but he can get Early Cross, it's so close to the other one, but Early Cross make the passes closer to the box than Pinpoint Pass.

Classic No. 10 and Speed Merchant cards would not be opposed?

Yeah, I totally forgot about that...(Konami is weird) I don't agree with Early Cross though, it does not suit him. Maybe Talisman would be a better sub for the Pinpoint Pass card. Not sure though.

I had my doubts about it, if they do, then Classic NO.10 should go as well, but I don't think they're opposed to each-other.

i've found his coach in Barcelona has used to play him in playmaking-sweeper like Beckenbauer or Sammer with successes!

so why not putting a Sweeper as additional Role?

by this Case im proposing extra attacker/marauding and Early cross Cards


from what i heard he already great passer with range so i guess it's main asset as attacking Libero
beside as Sweeper he maybe no great defender, but his overlapping was considerable so im proposing Aggresion 87 at least to support his extra attacker/marauding card and teamwork go up 82 for his vision as attacking libero

***

new

i've been searching his profile. i've found schuster even playing in libero Rule in his time as youth in Bayer leverkusen
no wonder he's been well adapted on it in his time in spain
