I looked through the last big post Oklahoma guy made and from the clips he posted Norwood seems to stay out of the opponents box. To me he really looked like a DMF in terms of how he treats space in matches, like rarely getting passed the 18 yard box and always falling deep when counter starts to plug up the middle.

To me he looks like a low Aggression DMF with low Response (the poor pressing). I don't watch him, but the set with him as a CMF with AGG 68 and RES 73 seems like a more involved player in attack. I would from descriptions think him more DMF, Aggression 58-60 and RES 65ish.

I like that. It’s what Josev was going for as well. I watched the game against Bournemouth and he didn’t change his style at all. He sits very deep basically letting the wide CBs go up and support through the flanks (O’Connell got a cross I’m pretty sure) and covering for them. He’s not responsive unless directly dealing with a player super close to him with no help. Otherwise he sits off and in a low block and goes to fill the passing lanes and let the others win it back. I need to watch him more in the tackle, but yeah I like your numbers a lot. I think that and maybe low 70s attack would be the way to go.

Oh I forgot to mention that maybe *Side star is something he could have, I seen you describe/link clips of him as someone who drifts wide in his support role. Guess it just depends if its a frequent thing in his style, like when he gets to the corner of the 18 yard box and whips in a cross. In old gen PES it is not a strong influence on behaviour, but I think it will make him more likely than normal DMF get out wide.

I had to watch off a stream just recently and am unable to post gifs or link to moments on YouTube (mostly since his passes are before the ball gets to the box and he is the one setting up the attack more than contributing to the final play.. which doesn't show up in highlight videos), but he had awesome passes at the following moments at:
9:20 showing his passing speed
13:43 doing really good taking the piss out of a driven ball and making a neat one touch pass to his teammate
17:20 signature raking diagonal ball played wide and forward
40:07 driven diagonal
59:20 the perfect ball linked above on the Facebook post
67:58 didn't connect but got damn close and shows his intentions and that when he misses it isn't by much

https://youtu.be/KsERniqwr94?t=184 Norwood average passing here, he has some really good curling
https://youtu.be/KsERniqwr94?t=440 Norwood corner driven nicely to his teammate
https://youtu.be/KsERniqwr94?t=468 win back by Stevens, pass by Norwood, dribbling by Stevens, back out to Norwood eventually for a powerful long range hit

Something else about him is that his free kick services are wicked dangerous. He doesn't go for goal with them really ever, but he gets a ton of assists from them and balls like this should be finished off. McGoldrick squandered two massive chances to score that really should have given United points against Southampton, at least this was offside in the end.

Another service and actual goal cancelled out by Egan in the middle being offside

Good and close long range shot here

Edit:
So that I am not just constantly blowing up his thread with new content I am adding to the bottom of this post for a while.

I got my hands on the full match for Sheffield United vs Arsenal and this will be a perfect example to show some stuff. I feel the technical stuff have been really highlighted upon in all posts, so this will focus on his tactical abilities and his positioning. One thing I want to also note is that he is a master of helping play his team out of pressure.

https://ok.ru/video/1365562755773?fromTime=209 start at 1:26 in the match. He plays the ball short from a free kick up the line, which then gets forwarded up the line a bit more. However, the recipient is facing backwards and can't turn. Norwood sees that there is an available position if he moves infield a few meters, which he does and becomes a really good option that should have been played to.

https://ok.ru/video/1365562755773?fromTime=324 and 3:21 in the match he again just takes the 2-3 steps backwards to free himself up and play a really good one touch pass over the top

https://ok.ru/video/1365562755773?fromTime=718 9:53 he knows the ball will come to him here and just gets it moving quickly to a lower pressure zone. He starts in an area where he will be pressured quickly, but gets it out of his feet and keeps it moving.

https://ok.ru/video/1365562755773?fromTime=1442 22:00 they overload the flank with a forward, a midfielder, and a center back all attacking in that area. Notice where Norwood is? He is back waiting to get the ball and split Arsenal with a pass when they go to shift position after he gets the ball. Then he can take a defender out of that area and the overload is back on. It advances the ball through a tier of the defense while keeping the same amount of attackers in that position.

https://ok.ru/video/1365562755773?fromTime=1832 28:26 he knows that Sheffield United are always trying to switch play, so he stakes himself out on the opposite end of the pitch since the 3 CBs provide enough passing possibilities between themselves to find a way to get the ball to the other side of the pitch. They do, and you can see just how opportune of a position Norwood finds himself in then. Even when he pulls back, it is because the overlapping CB is coming and he is giving depth to cover there in case both offensively and defensively.

https://ok.ru/video/1365562755773?fromTime=1871 29:08 you can see the start to a really well executed play by Sheffield here. They are exchanging the ball between the CB and the LB who then gets a really good run from Mousset up top to lay the ball back to the midfielder in the space vacated by Mousset's run. I do not know how Jurgens thought they are ugly. This is far from it.

More coming tomorrow, just stopping for the night!
