INFO:

Spoiler: show
Gifted with an extraordinary technical ability, aided to his good physical shape and strong charisma, enormous ambition and total dedication to his job, led him to become one of his generation greatests, with a fantastic career full of conquests.

Coming from "Os Pastilhas" (means "The Gums"), a small neighbourhood from Cova da Piedade, Figo (born: 04/11/1972) arrived at Sporting Clube de Portugal (SCP) with 13 years and shortly after he was being summoned up to the youth national squads in every rank, getting to be European Champion of u17 in 1989 and World Champion of u20 in 1991.

April 1990 saw Figo's debut with the SCP jersey, he was only 17 at the time but it was only in the 1991/92 season that he grabbed his place in the starting eleven, getting to the National Squad prime team as well.

With the arrival of Carlos Queiroz to SCP (who have been his coach in the NT youth squads), Figo blossomed as a footballer becoming the most shining star of the SCP team and being desired troughout all Europe. Sousa Cintra, president of SCP, failed to renew his contract and Figo departed to Barcelona after being forbidden of playing in Italy as he signed for Parma and Juventus.

Luis Figo was the greatest winger in the world during the last three decades and considered by many to be the greatest footballer ever to born in Portugal. He was a playmaking right-winger who had average speed but remarkable dribbling and the ability to make pinpoint passing and imagination to create assists. Figo started his famous with playing in Portugal "Golden Geneation Team" which consist of Paulo Sousa, Rui Costa and Jao Pinto, was notable for their beautiful style of play in midfield. Figo also was one of the most important roles helping Portugal reach the semi-finals in EURO 2000 and FIFA World Cup 2006 and the final of Euro 2004. Figo is one of the few footballers to have played for both the Spanish rival clubs FC Barcelona and Real Madrid where he won the Ballon d'Or in 2000 and FIFA world player of the year in 2001. He also played for Sporting Lisbon in his early career and Inter Milan in Late career. Due to his consistency, He played almost 800 games during his club professional career and scored more than 100 goals.

can someone post a finalized Barcelona set? i like ingus set but its slightly outdated and i believe his shooting stats should be higher during his barca era, he scored from open play quite frequently.

After some experience with the prime set I'd say ds downgrade was a bit too radical. With 80 I had originally he appears to be much more realistic. 77 limits his ability to keep pace on the ball too much. IRL when Figo had some space he was able to be pretty quick with the ball still almost glued to his feet and I want to do the same when controlling him in game. With current value the only way to have some decent speed on the ball is to make punt and run style dribbling. He rarely was doing that and definentely not when given space.

Shooting stats are probably too harsh also (and certainly there need to be noticable difference between Prime Figo and Inter Figo) but I haven't got clear opinion on that yet.

Couldn't the eras be extended? I believe both sets represents Figo for more than solely one season. "Old" set era could be easily 2005-07, I'm not sure about prime one.

I think figo needs AM as a secondary position.. when he played for barca, real and Portugal he would always go into the central areas of the pitch to be more involved in the build up play(which is not replicated in the game without the *center for a SM).. I think you could give him *center or add AM as a secondary position..

Would his stats be much different for 2002-03 set? I'd like to make my favorite team ever and it would be nice to see the answer because I'm far from PES expert in such a close comparisons.

I'd add a few things.

I'd argue a raise in Tech and a raise in LPA. With the bump in Bernardo Silva I think it's worth comparing the greatest of them all, and Figo's touch can't be below. I'd actually argue switching.

The LPA maybe I should hold off on, as crossing is a part but not all. Tho I could argue his SPA and SP..and honestly his accuracy, as it was quite good.

And he honestly is worth the *Playmaking star. Not to mention that his should-be default position isn't even an option here.

And his BB.


In live time he's one of the top 6 or 7 players I've ever seen.

Sorry I should have finished that thought :lol:

Definitely an AM, given his tactical function isn't to hug and track the line. Crossing the midfield he went everywhere.

A natural winger playing as an AM. Curious to hear feedback on that.

Not sure what Figo you've been watching? Inter? He played winger (deep) everywhere and moved sporadically across the mid to link up and take shots, but he functioned as a winger the vast majority of the time.

Agree with this. At least in this video playing for Inter, you can see some of his non-ball moves and Figo is usually playing over the right side, and sometimes bursts into the middle.

"Technique is not being able to juggle a ball 1000 times. Anyone can do that by practicing. Then you can work in the circus. Technique is passing the ball with one touch, with the right speed, at the right foot of your team mate."

Yeah but that's more like what I said, his natural movements. Tactically, I don't see how he's a SM. Especially in his first couple seasons at Inter.

thats why i said inter, but in inter he was almost dead physically, so he was deployed as am apparently, but honestly I can't remeber how often he played there, anything I seen of him in recent times he was playing same winger as always. Luis Figo is a winger.

Again, he's a winger but I don't consider his tactical position as that. He did a lot more than that. At Barca, playing under Van Gaal, he really did anything he wanted. And at Real he seemed to improve and, again, do more.

Not that wingers can't do more, but he isn't like a Di Maria or Joaquin, floating and making movements off of wing position. He's attracted to the ball and plays for the ball.

Have had obscenely long and endless talks with my Friends about this, one whose favorite player is Figo. Maybe I'm not communicating it well enough here.

Luis Figo's dribbling accuracy 98 and 1996-1998 R9's dribbling accuracy 97? Lol..

R9 better on close control dribbling, dribbling reflexes, passing far more players and has definitely better dribbling balance..

What is this sh*t?

Figo's dribbling speed is low. That's right.. But accuracy probably 95 at maximum..

Also Figo's true peak was Barça.. You even didn't add it..

His position is AM, without any question. He was free and played outside the tactical restriction of a SM. With. Out. A. Doubt.

DS should be yellow. He played slow until he didnt. It's why he could carve people up better than anyone I've ever seen. His Agility also needs to be higher, because he cut back and forth so suddenly, so fluidly. A lot of it was deception and class, but Figo was more agile than this.

And his BB was certainly higher. Physical package very interesting.

Would also raise his Tech a point.

How figo could have higher da than ronaldo
Classic Ronaldo at 97 is actually underrated
EmperorBR11/12/2020
Look at the entire set
zuo11/12/2020
Yes
He's underrated
I am really cautious on God region and orange values,
EmperorBR11/12/2020
I am having trouble acessing the sets
Could you print and send here?
zuo11/12/2020
I constantly joke about cr7 yellow sa cause I can't see him at 94 (but cause I mostly see sa overpowered in ladder terms)

Then down
I wanted to see riquelme, Baggio, Iniesta and ronaldinho
EmperorBR11/12/2020
Nevermind, i managed to get all his sets in the site

Ronaldo

Yeah
zuo11/12/2020
I, think 97 98
I saw
Let me check
EmperorBR11/12/2020

This one?
97-99, Internazionale set
zuo11/12/2020
That's fine
He's simply one of the best dribble ever
EmperorBR11/12/2020
Lets move the discussion to the #classics server
zuo11/12/2020
He can touch and manage the bll in so many ways
overseer11/13/2020
Main problem is that robben is underrated,
@zuo robben should be like 97
zuo11/13/2020
I, could agree to that
overseer11/13/2020
i have 50 mins of shooting
zuo11/13/2020
I fail to see how figo could be more than 95 honestly
overseer11/13/2020
up to about last world cup
zuo11/13/2020
Whom, shooting
?
overseer11/13/2020
robben, shooting
and first thing that stood out is
zuo11/13/2020
Oh
overseer11/13/2020
we have massively under-rated his DA
zuo11/13/2020
I know
overseer11/13/2020
hes pretty much perfect
zuo11/13/2020
I remember his da very well
overseer11/13/2020
i dont get why you think figo should be 95
maybe later years
but in his prime hes basically a top 10 dribbler
and number 1 step over style
zuo11/13/2020
He was very, very elegant
Perfect gesture, flair
But his DA
in terms of number of touches per second, close control, tightness
Is/was beaten by such a lot of players
Trying to elaborate
You, can take the ball away from figo
overseer11/13/2020
his dribbling at speed was pretty flawless, but he just slowed down so much to do step overs and stuff, and his style during that, was all body shifting with minimal touches
zuo11/13/2020
Without neither fouling him or overpowering him

Just how GOOD was Luis Figo Actually?

time stamp there
like, when hes showing pure control
its ridiculosly good
but he does it in very small bursts
so its much harder to find than like, messi
cause figo barely ran with ball
past a certain age
you need like
95 years or so
but theres very little footage for figo from them
which is... unbeliveable
not even long ago
he can probably come down, but he was insanely good at DA, when his style warranted pure control
zuo11/13/2020
It's crazy to see him above robben, r9, zizou
I'm, serious
If some of the above should sit on 97,
He needs to be at least on 95
How are rated ppl with similar style, let's say, Baggio riquelme,
overseer11/13/2020
96 and 98
i can agree with lower
but see this time stamp here
https://youtu.be/V7A7iE2nG_o?t=133

Luis Figo vs Levante (Home) (28/11/2004)

its these little things he does here and there
you can see when he opts for pure control
its of the abolsute highest quality
but i can agree, cause its rarely on display
he really only uses it sporadically
zuo11/13/2020
I'd honestly rate him 95 or 96 top, he's just not good as players we could discriminate on 97 98 or 99
I can see those plays and with the same frequency/90s even with some rated 93ish
I feel I really have consciousness of his style
Less about his tech tbh
overseer11/13/2020
that specific stamp
thats like 96/97 da
its just perfect, and whenever he does that slowed down slalom hes high, high 90s
outside of that though
lower 90s, probably
hes not opting for control when doing step overs, and not even touching the ball mostly
and he does so much punt and runs
that hes not even using DA in those instances
just agression with his low speed
zuo11/13/2020
He absolutely does not feel red while running fastish/fast
given his speeds
BTW
How's left foot rated?
overseer11/13/2020
7/6
players like figo are mostly old konami sets
zuo11/13/2020
He kinda had weakish crosses and shoots with that
overseer11/13/2020
with minimal tweaking
zuo11/13/2020
Mmmmmmmm
I'd rate himc 6/5 and 2/2 honestly

The way figo carries the ball with his right foot in 1on1s is beautiful. it looks glued to his feet. but i understand that these things are hard to replicate with the game's parameters and limitations.
