Re: José Izquierdo

Injury tolerance C, right?
He's barely played for the last two years, mainly given his long-term injury issues.

Re: Ihlas Bebou

His progression at Hoffenheim has been slow but steady. He initially struggled a bit to adapt himself to team tactics, mainly given his somewhat selfish style of play. He eventually did. He's improved a lot the quality of his movements since then, exploiting his pace to cut inside in a much more eff...

Re: Yeferson Soteldo

He's a really unpredictable player in many senses, including his form, which fluctuates with huge highs and lows in a matter of a few months. Ac Víctor has already stated, Soteldo is a fairly proficient player in technical terms. His dribbles are usually neatly controlled, and they are smoothly turn...

Re: Karim Rekik

He has some serious lack of determination and will to enhance his football. I dare to say the main cause is the fact that he's always seen as a player to add depth to the defensive line, and he doesn't seem to make a substantial effort to improve himself and make managers rate him better. So we are ...

Re: Trent Alexander-Arnold

Shouldn't he have Outside/Outside Curve? He uses the outside of his right foot. A lot. And it is not a matter of lacking footwork with his left foot. It is naturally more notorious when he crosses the ball from deep positions, when he mildly cuts inside and wants to put a powerful early cross. In th...

Re: Fabian Schär

Considering how bad he was at Hoffenheim and (specially) Depor, I was not really expecting him to play consistently good to that extent at Newcastle. Rafa Benítez fully trusted on Schär's enthusiastic approach, defensive skills and ball distribution, and time proved Rafa to be right; same applies to...

Re: Bastian Oczipka

Even before Schalke's crisis, he was already in a slow yet steady downfall with weak performances. He was doing well when managed by Tedesco, but Oczipka never truly replicated that form ever since. For moments he doesn't even seem to care, and since Schalke doesn't have a reliable LB replacement, h...

Re: Rhian Brewster

He surely has great potential, and he had a good half-season loan spell at Swansea, but being the transfer record signing for Sheffield United despite the previous lack of Premiership football experience was probably way too much pressure to handle for him. He looks too anxious, mistiming his moveme...

Re: Oliver Burke

For a player who had such a relatively high profile when he was only around 19 years old, he's had such a dissapointing progression as a footballer. He's technically meh at best, but his woeful end up product and lack of football intelligence is what puts him really under the radar (for good reasons...

Re: Alessandro Schöpf

I'm a bit dissapointed of his little progression in terms of precission overall since he joined Schalke. His workrrate and speed on the ball are still top notch, but his end up product tends to be weak, and that's the main reason he cannot take his football to a further step. Otherwise, he would su...

Re: Mauricio Isla

He looks much slower nowadays, both on and off the ball. In his prime time, he mostly exceled by losing his mark right after passing the bal and the teammate played a one-two. Now he uses that resource more often, because he's aware of his physical regression, so his dribbles are now even less relev...

Re: Pablo Galdamés

1) His last last name is not Galdamés, but "Galdames". 2) Just like his homonymous father used to play, "Pablito" acts more as an Enforcer-kind CM/DM, mainly focused on dispossesing the ball from oppositions, either through tackling, pressing or intercepting opp passes. Aside fro...

I don't remember him taking a single penalty kick since his spell at Basel. I never saw taking a single one at Hoffenheim, Depor or Newcastle.

Re: Ruben Vargas

The current set overall fits well for him. His end up product fluctuates a lot in terms of effectiveness, mainly because of his rushy approaches. But he's quite fast, he has some nice flair and he's capable of showing some glimpses of creativity despite his somewhat selfish nature. His jumps are sur...

Re: Lautaro Martínez

I'm not convinced at all at rating his weak foot stats at 8/8. Indeed, he tries often to finish scoring chances with his left foot, but personally I don't see him being neat enough with it to warrant him such a high WFA rate. CR7 is some steps ahead of Lautaro in that regard, no matter whether it co...

Re: Cristiano Ronaldo

Well, games such as the ones against Sweden (2014 WC qualification playoff round) or Spain (2018 WC group stage) prove sometimes it works the other way round, with Portugal playing below-par football and Cristiano pulling his side forward, despite the adversities. Anyway, I would not rate this set ...

Re: Nabil Bentaleb

He's looked really unfocused overall for the last years. People could say the crisis at Schalke would be the main cause, but Bentaleb's problems were already there before the club crisis was unleashed. He also had 'meh' performances while on loan at Newcastle, so the core of his issues rely strongly...

Re: Jonas Wind

I should say he deserves a slightly better set overall, and I was probably a bit conservative when rating some of his stats. He's already a good player, quite resourceful upfront and with a good amount of traits under his pockets. First of all, I think I was unfair when rating his aerial prowess. Su...

Re: Marc Bartra

I'm afraid he's stuck in a comformist mentality, just satisfied enough by being a regular starter at Betis. That's really disappointing to see, even more when Betis have heavily struggled defensively for ages. I still think he's a good player overall, but certainly not someone with leadership traits...
