Nolberto SOLANO | 2000-2002

Postby PES Stats Database » 2009 Jun 18, 20:28

Nickname: "Nobby" | "Ñol" | *Maestrito*

Club: Newcastle United



INFO:

Nolberto Albino Solano Todco commonly known as "Nobby" or "Ñol", is a Peruvian football player who spent much of his career in the English Premier League. He is a popular figure in his native Peru, where he is seen as one of the most famous Peruvians, appearing on a postage stamp and having his wedding televised live.

His talents in football range from accurate crosses to accomplished dead-ball skills and he has traditionally played either on the right wing, or as a right back during his career. He is the first choice player to take corner and direct free kicks. Solano is the first Peruvian to play in the Premier League and the FA Cup Final. He is also an accomplished trumpet player and has set up his own Salsa band, The Geordie Latinos. He has described himself as an "adopted Geordie".

With a slight frame and low centre of gravity Solano's game is based almost entirely on skill and vision, he in many ways exemplifies the South American type of footballer. Predominantly a wide player, as a winger in Europe he was atypical, with a taste for drifting inside and unhurried in his manner of carrying the ball. During his time at Newcastle he was among the Premiership's most creative midfielders, second only to Thierry Henry in assists for the 2000/2001 season. He is also a dead ball specialist, having scored several memorable long range free-kicks.

Nice stats, really enjoyed watching him play, but I have my own suggestions...

Attack: His attacking intelligence was nothing special, it may even have been below average for a *SMF, he used to kind of wander in-field not taking up good positions really, 74/75 would be my value.

Agility: Could even knock this up a couple higher, full of twists and turns.

Dribble Speed: He preferred to slow down on the ball, rather than run with at full pace, although being averagely fast off the ball, he preferred to slow down on the ball and beat opponents with trickery, I'd knock his DS down to 78.

Short Passing: A tricky one, his short passing doesn't look overly spectacular sometimes but can create a killer pass out of nothing, I'm not sure if the current stats replicate this though, it isn't a suggestions but just a thought.

Header and Jump: He didn't really contest for aerial balls, so his jump could be lower, maybe 74 but when he got a free header, they where decent. I'd say Header: 76 Jump: 74.

Mentality: I don't think it deserves to be in yellows, he wasn't one to chase after a lost ball and was more one who waited for the ball to come to him, rather than chase after it himself. 77 possibly?

In this season Nol' was playing good in attack, even in London! I remember many times he would actually get to the box and was using pace to get in behind. So I understand the attack and dribble speed values, but I'd say 76 is better for attack and DS 79/80. (He did use his pace quite a few times to race away from the defence) Other than that I can't argue. After this period he began to deteriorate physically despite mainaining his classy touch.

I'm all for the 85, I think it's well deserved. He placed his freekicks well imo

Please, can someone put this set in the main data? Only if everyone agrees with the values.

Please, if you already have a set show it, that would be great!

I think era should be changed from 2000-02 to 2000-03, from statistics those were his best years in Newcastle. also lets remember Solano is one of the top all time PL in terms in assists with 62.

He is a Newcastle legend and one of the best peruvian players of the last 30 years. I was reviewing some material of him and it was kinda impressive the quality of his goals and assists from those years. He also scored a bunch of FK goals in his past years in Sporting Cristal, Boca Juniors and also NT.

He made a great duo with Alan Shearer, and those years he was a very dangerous, smart and classy SM, with great technique and vision.

ATT->77 Basically I think is a minor tweak but fair, in those seasons solano was dangerous and made sharp decissions, even though he was a SM who can create A LOT of danger getting thru opponents and he was not the best t
Response: 82-->78-79
SPS: his short pass range was kinda impressive, there is some examples in the videos
LPA: 90--88, the reason behind the little drop is because he would be rated in an area some better long passers are in, even Solano was great, imo he doesnt deserve orange numbers, something around 88-89 would be better. 90 puts him at the same level as Modric and he was close to that accuracy imo.

DEF: 60--> 57Also the def drop, the way new CM and SB are rated I think 57 is fine. He was not a great tackler or a guy who wasnt that great defending imo

Speed stats: TS 80 and ACC 84 So basically the minor changes are tp set the base into the new standars and make him more accurate also I made a difference between the ts and accs, Solano was decent in short runs but after a while he was recheable.

ST: 80 The reason behind the 80 in ST was the decent amount of goals he scored between those seasons, 27 goals for a SM-SB is really good imo. And most of those goals were in hard angles and were first touch shots most of the time.

FKA 87 and curve 90
FKA was raised due to the crazy amount of FK goals he scored in previous clubs and the accuracy of those, I think 85 is kinda low for solano who even at PL level scored some sweet FK goals, so 87-88 is more than fair imo

So basically the minor changes are tp set the base into the new standars and make him more accurate. The Response drop I think was necessary (from 82 to 78-79), also I made a difference between the speed stats, Solano was decent in short runs but after a while he was recheable.

its basically just the first post with minor tweaks, when thats the case, you'd be better of just making suggestions, full sets are too awkward to spot chnages
