Milutin ŠOŠKIĆ | 1962-1968

Stats by Plava Čigra (with some help from coolactive)

Nickname: "Šole"

Club: Partizan Belgrade (1962/1966) | 1. FC Köln (1966/1968)



Growth type: Early/Lasting


INFO:

Šoškić was among top 3 goalkeepers in the former Yugoslavia. Really hard working, team player, with never-say-die attitude. Played for Partizan Belgrade, 1. FC Köln and Yugoslavian national team with great success. Had three serious injuries during his career. First one at the beginning of his career in Partizan Belgrade. After one save after the corner, while Šoškić was on the ground, one of the opposite players jumped on his lower part of the leg and broke his ligaments. That was in the 19. minute of the game. Šoškić stayed on the goal until the end of the match! It was so serious that doctors said, that he should consider himself lucky if he could walk without cane. 7 months after the surgery, rehabilitation and much hard work he was back, and he was better then ever. He can thank for that only to his iron will (since people from Partizan offered no real help to him). Also during his years in 1. FC Köln, he has broken his leg and again return stronger then ever. Amazing will power, I would say! Sadly, in his late years this (broken leg) happened again and he started to think about retiring from football.

In the penalty box he's the king. Great positioning, timing and bravery (probably too much in some moments, because this is the cause of all 3 of his injuries). He's appeared in the match between England and Rest of the World in 1965, on Wembley. First halftime Yashin was GK for the Rest of the World and second halftime was Šoškić's time. He was that kind of goalkeeper that often saved amazing shoots that everybody already considered to be goals.

When somebody tries to compare Yashin and Šoškić, one interesting information shows up. Bora Kostić (striker for Red Star Belgrade during '50s and '60s, and the best Yugoslavian free kick taker of that time) never scored free kick against Šoškić, while against Yashin he scored one time from good distance (from around 35 meters). This is very interesting because Kostić played 2 or 3 times against Yashin, while against Šoškić he played more then 20 times.

Now, I've updated Soskic due to more videos watched. I've realized that I've truly underrated his TS and ACC, due to my smaller knowledge about him 2 months ago. Also, here are a few more things I found out about Soskic when I watched that videos.

He had very good defensive positioning, but he would sometimes run from his line in order to sweep or catch the ball, and in most cases he did that superbly (although in few times, those runs from goal line were quite dangerous, and that's the main reason for 2 or 3 nasty injuries through his career). I thought that only Aggression should be raised to emulate this, but then I discussed this with Classical and he explained me that higher Mentality and higher Aggression are the proper way to emulate this. He also pointed me to the thread where this is discussed. Thanks for helping me, mate ;).

Also, I did a few minor changes of some Abilities, in order to be more synchronized with the Ladders.

List of changes:

Stamina: 75 (previously 70),
Top Speed: 70 (previously 48),
Acceleration: 72 (previously 50),
Dribble Accuracy: 50 (previously 44),
Short Pass Speed: 60 (previously 58),
Shot Accuracy: 45 (previously 40),
Shot Technique: 44 (previously 42),
Jump: 88 (previously 90),
Aggression: 65 (previously 58),
Mentality: 85 (previously 83),

Nice work NightCaller3.Congrat's mate. I've already implemented Soskic in my Yugoslavia classic team. Is there any chance to make Beara's stats :?:

Updated.

1. Changed his Era to 1962/1968 (from 1962-1971). I decided to change his Era because during his final seasons in 1. FC Köln were disrupted by injuries.

2. Changed his Injury Tolerance to B in his 1. FC Köln days (was C). Since I've excluded his last final seasons from his Era (when he was especially injury prone), I've decided to change Injury Tolerance.

3. Changed his Growth type to Early/Lasting (from Standard/Lasting).

4. If you're interested to see other changes in these stats, and Šoškić's comparison with Ćurković, Mrkušić and Beara go here: post127980.html#p127980
