Re: Stephen Eustáquio

That is the impression he left me, competent and confident in being a connector. Really he could have a spot in the team if he does that role with little errors, Osorio can struggle to trap the ball and make up his mind to dribble/or try a pass (with high failure rate) and ruins possession often. Eu...

Re: Oribe Peralta

I think the Attack downgrade could go lower, and overall he needs toning down.

Last year in CCL he was underwhelming and the set seems to represent his better years. 2017 he still had a high goal scoring record but it has dried up for him, I would remove *Scoring too.

Re: Steven Vitória

I had no idea this set existed, I searched for it a month ago and was not here. So I have been making my own - I want to go through more past footage to tighten up some values. I'll post soon with concrete changes. But this set is crazy, he is NOT this player, maybe he was 10 years ago - though from...

Re: USA | 2016 Copa América Centenario

Too lazy to make an "official" foramtion entry. https://i.imgur.com/CNiGErH.png Ignore the squad - since its me experimenting - but the tactics is what they used in Gold Cup under Berhalter. Ream was the left CB playing as a false LB - in my eyes he is not a defensive LB since he provides ...

Re: Canada | 09/09/2014

idiotic waste of talent to have him at LB, especially since prior match he ran US ragged from a free attacking role. When he screws up - since he makes many mistakes in passing/dribbling/decisions its a much worse set of players that has to save the action, compared to Alaba and co. What I said abo...

Re: Alphonso Davies

Very weird his dribbling, first half vs US was guilty of multiple give aways because he dribbled with the ball 4 feet in front of him with every touch - one lead to the CK that was first goal. And just looked horrendous in controlling the ball all first half. Then second half MUCH improved control a...

Re: Brad Guzan

Tonight made two quality first time passes on sharp balls coming at him, and they were both hit to perfection, bending in air arcing and landing at feet of fullback. Was a contrasting picture to Bojan who struggled all night to place a ball to a teammate. Just underlined how he has grown as a passer...

Re: Sergiño Dest

Looks like a *Dribbling type player.

Very nice touch on him.

Stamina, looked out of gas before 90th and did not have THAT much of an intense match.

Overall good at the position, can be long term solution for USA at the spot.

Re: Los Angeles FC - Formation & Tactics / Team Discussion Thread

I modified first formation a little, no new images (attack arrows/defence levels same), just the lineup/roles changed a little. After Brain Rodriguez joined and was settled into the squad/playing the sub role, Bradley has tried (to me almost desperately) to make a Rodriguez-Vela-Rossi front 3 work. ...

Re: Atlanta United FC - Formation & Tactics / Team Discussion Thread

Added alternate 4-2-3-1 formation. Decided to add it since de Boer for some reason decided to go back to it in playoffs - I thought they were done with it - especially vs TFC this made less sense since with that formation yes they turned their season around, but it was still a grind with lots counte...

Re: Víctor Rodríguez

Updated a little. Been injured often for Seattle, stops him from playing a full season and being starter. Still with his talent is a good impact player and Schmetzer tries to preserve and get as much as he can. Rodriguez also changes Seattle's natural gameplan up by gravitating centrally and creatin...

Re: Kelvin Leerdam

Updated. Nicely rounded player, less dynamic then what the previous set had him at. He can be influential in the build up or with a critical intervention to diffuse an attack, but he has not been a go-go-go fullback with loads of energy and constant buzzing up and down the park. He seems far more co...

Updated a little. Height/Weight listed as more in many places than 167/64. Season was interrupted with Copa America in June and July and an injury for all of April. I think if he gets a full uninterrupted season under his belt he can challenge for the Golden Boot in the league. He had 13 goals in 17...

Re: Michael Bradley

Updated for this past season. Glad in a way that TFC lost the MLS Cup Final and that supposed auto re-sign clause was not engaged for 6.5 million/year for next few years - as he is past it as a DP level player. He could stay on, but ideally TFC should be pivoting (no pun intended) to Liam Fraser or ...

Re: Gustav Svensson

102 tackles 23 fouls 1 yellow this season.

I dont care about tiers this instance, gave him appropriate Defence for his ability at defending overall, when he was missing mid-season is when Seattle began to sputter, him coming back restored their stability.
