Re: Romelu Lukaku

His stamina has always been noticeably poor, I don't think he has ever been yellow here imo. It has been even more obvious this year since he has put on weight and has had fitness issues all season. For instance against Chelsea he made one sprint early on in the game and was knackered for the next 3...

Re: Kyle Walker

I think his LPA is a bit overrated, he is quite a poor crosser. He is also very reluctant to cross the ball and often just cuts back trying to find a pass, but when he does opt to cross he has pretty poor accuracy, probably low greens. I still think his DA & Tech are overrated, particularly his ...

Re: Mohamed Salah

I compared Salah's technique to Sterling in his thread to demonstrate how Sterling is overrated (still think that he is), but honestly Salah is probably underrated too. He has that ability to just kill a ball dead or manipulate the ball to set up a dribble, and has been showcasing this more and more...

Re: Raheem Sterling

I see no reason for him to be this high for LPA, he really is quite a poor crosser of a ball. His crosses have no shape or whip and he lacks the technique to be yellow here, especially when you compare him to someone like Salah who has very decent technique and often puts some decent balls in from w...

Re: Romelu Lukaku

His all round hold up play has certainly improved every year, he doesn't lose the ball as easily like he used to, or misplace simple passes. And its games like this that make you think he is red BB, as he is just bulldozing everyone. When he is up for a game he is just a fucking animal when he is ba...

Re: Alexis Sánchez

Every time I see him play I am really impressed by his LPA, he is capable of finding pinpoint balls in behind the defence, has looked comfortably high yellows to me.

Re: David Silva

He seems to really fade after about 60 minutes or so these days, I get the impression he is probably a high green stamina tops.

Re: Kevin de Bruyne

I gotta say, I was completely wrong about De Bruyne's strength as there have been many instances in the past couple months of very good resistance and power in physical duels, for instance against Firmino. I have also noticed how effective he is at intercepting the ball and starting counter attacks....

Re: Virgil van Dijk

It seems off having Matip and Van Dijk on the same value for BB, Virgil just seems much more physically imposing to me and is also more robust and aggressive in his play so he makes use of his strength more effectively. He also seems more athletic and nimble than Matip too, who can seem pretty stiff...

Re: Pedro Rodríguez

I'm not too sure on acceleration being so high for Pedro but I have noticed that his agility is really great, he has the ability to turn really quickly and aggressively, kinda similarly to Sanchez. Hazard has a much smoother motion to his turning and has this ability to completely destroy defenders ...

Re: Leighton Baines | 2010-2013

I think the Baines of around 2013, when nobody in Europe was creating as many chances as him, was probably a yellow attack. I noticed Ashley Cole was on 80 and Baines was just so much more productive and effective going forward. I'd say Baines should be around 80 in attack. His attacking intelligenc...

Re: Jordan Henderson

His TS and agility look a little out of place to me, I think he has lost quite a bit of mobility in recent years. His turning actually sees him lose possession quite often when pressed, I'd have him on low greens at best here. I think he used to be this fast over distance but I'd have to take a clos...

Re: Mohamed Salah

I have been impressed with his first touch in recent weeks, he can sometimes look a little sloppy but he has been killing really difficult balls dead quite regularly from what I have seen.

Re: Kyle Walker

I'm not overly convinced of these technical stats tbh. The guy is a monster physically, arguably 1 or 2 point higher in BB as vinnie pointed out, but his first touch and dribbling is nothing special. His average first touch is pretty evident when Ederson pings out those balls out wide as he will usu...

Re: Romelu Lukaku

I think his TECH was on 75 before it was updated, I honestly think that is enough for a player like Lukaku. I have to say I am still not impressed with his shooting for United, even when he was scoring a lot at the start of the season.

Re: Raheem Sterling

I've always been a big fan of Raheem since his Liverpool days, and this season has shown how dangerous he can be in an expansive and fluid attacking team like City. I hated how he used to hug the line on the left in the past in a really rigid formation as it ignores all of his strengths as a player,...

Re: Seamus Coleman

I think Coleman might be a little too low in DA. I've never been overly impressed with somebody like Bellerin in dribbling if I'm being honest. And a one point difference in DA between him and Coleman is far from reality. Especially considering Bellerin has the edge in every other stat that would ma...

Re: Idrissa Gana Gueye

There are a few outdated values for Everton players so I'll help update them all, probably a month or two into the season. Idrissa is just an absolute beast though. He is comfortably our best and most consistent player, especially with Coleman out for a while. For starters his ATT & DEF should b...

Re: Mesut Özil

I touched on this in De Bruyne's thread, Ozil has a real reluctance to carry the ball forward, and even on the few occasions that he does he is not very good at maintaining speed on the ball and messes up, despite having good control at a slow pace (although 88 DA is arguably a couple of points too ...
