I think Ruben showed way he should be in the WC. The guy has great attitude. I just think he deserves more strength in the air. He ia quite solid in defensive and does well on scoring from headers

The set is basically a draft atm, haven't given it proper tough yet. But keep coming with the suggestions, they're much appreciated.

I think the citizens found a solvent central defender, at least at the local level,
good performance during the course of this season
hopefully their performance in the knockout round of the champions.
For now very well, of their 18 participations, the defense has conceded 9 goals, it is a good number from where you look at it

Totally! He is a proper rock at the back for City and a massive performer exceeding his values here and justifying his price tag. While some high potential, but young defenders like Fofana and Gabriel have come in, Ruben is showing a really damn good level already and adding a very quality campaign to a position that was way too weak in the league as the dearth of quality CBs is painfully clear. Well, even without Laporte this guy just does an absolutely great job and in that 84-85 defense range already with also mid green LPA being shown. He is a tough player at the position and a great signing.

And he's a bit more technical, isn't it? A good passer and looks so calm when holding on the ball. I'm going to give him 73 for his DA and 75 for tech, and also greens for all of his passing stats.
Live life for the moment, because everything else is uncertain.

He is calm on the ball, but this is more mental than pure ability with dribbling I would say. He is a really smart player. His long passing is better and he’s getting more comfortable with the passing requirements of the Pep system. However, he’s still a pure defender. He’s got other stuff to his game, but man his defensive impact is massive. Seriously, this guy is fundamentally sound. It’s not that he’s mostly a good tackler, no he’s got the aspects of defending down already. His positioning is impeccable. He’s always in great positions to cut out passes, especially cut back passes from the touch line. Add on top of that he just knows where to position himself to make blocks. The amount of times this guy finds the spot to get even just the smallest touch on the ball to send it to safety cannot be overstated in its importance. It’s like coming up against a proper wall. He’s also quite good at preventing counters, which is important at City given how much they commit players forward. City paid a ton for him, and it has paid off. The biggest testament can be not only that he has kept Laporte out of the side, it’s that he’s brought the best out of Stones. Dias works excellently to cover the weaknesses of others and this City defense has been nasty. He’s a tough tackling, pure defender, who is also solid on the ball. 23, new to the league, and already making a real serious claim as the best performing CB this season. EPL was really lacking last season, but this summer brought in some very good young defenders. One of my favorite players of the campaign. Brilliant play to date. Cheers.

From Discord:

AtmosphereToday at 9:48 AM
gimenez vs ruben dias? who is better?

zuoToday at 9:50 AM
I've seen a little Ruben dias but his da seemed over average for a defender to me
how's rated?
also I felt his aerial game was more on bb than jmp

AtmosphereToday at 9:52 AM
dias is on 67 da, gimenez is on 75
generally gimenez looks superior in psd
but i feel that dias is ready for the next step

anOKguyToday at 10:06 AM
@Atmosphere Dias has been extremely good this season
What do you think of him?

AtmosphereToday at 10:17 AM
i've been watching most of his matches this season with city and portugal, i see him very very mature, for start
i wouldn't hesitate to put big numbers on him, but i would prefer a small upgrade for start, you know?
gimenez is on 90 def and 95 response currently,
i can see 88def on dias, maybe 90 resp
also, i think he plays with 77 ball control, maybe even 80 da? i havent seem him fail, and he does so well under pressure
certainly not worse than de ligt for example, who is on 78 ball controll/78 da
his passing is very tidy too, around 76+? what you think? @anOKguy

anOKguyToday at 10:25 AM
Yes this is what I’m thinking as well, give him time to see more. Still early in his career in England
But his control of the defense has been insanely good
On the ball he is actually a quite good long passer as well!
He is tidy and avoids errors and has gotten more comfortable
I don't see him so much showing those moments when he is under pressure to have the control to get out. His agility and big frame do not help
but his passing is crisp, normally safe, but getting a little more adventurous

AtmosphereToday at 10:28 AM
with vvd out for this season, i can see him being named defender of the season, until now
the truth is i need to see more
and to see his consistency
also, to see him in the stages on the champions league
i mean, if man city manage to finally win this season, he will be the most important transfer of the year
i am a bit hesitant with the passes, but i am sure about the defense, yea

anOKguyToday at 10:31 AM
For me he now has moved to that level. Vestegaard before his injury was the other
I was a little cautious with Dias at first in a post I made about the best players so far
But now he is just showing he is truly the best this campaign

anOKguyToday at 10:32 AM
Yes we will see him against the best and that is where it will truly be shown

AtmosphereToday at 10:33 AM
also, important tournaments come with his national team, and portugal is full of good players right now

anOKguyToday at 10:33 AM
I think the last games I just saw were against Crystal Palace, Fulham, Burnley, West Brom, Brighton
Not so hard to look great against some of those teams

AtmosphereToday at 10:34 AM
yes. but it is important that he shows that he is dominant against "smaller" teams, without margin for mistakes

anOKguyToday at 10:35 AM
Yes and so far he has. I just saw today of the 13 games he has started with Stones, they have only given up 1 goal!

AtmosphereToday at 10:35 AM
yea, super good partnership
ideal for the playstyle of man city
i only feel sad for laporte, i liked him

anOKguyToday at 10:36 AM
Same, and it is not injuries this time
Just not breaking up this excellent pairing currently
he has given Stones so much confidence

AtmosphereToday at 10:37 AM
yea, guardiola does the correct thing

anOKguyToday at 10:37 AM
In defense they often slide to a back 3 with Cancelo tucking in as a pivot next to Rodri now

AtmosphereToday at 10:37 AM
cancelo is so good too

anOKguyToday at 10:37 AM
Stones is very good on the ball so this is helping a lot too
Cancelo has a lot more ability to play passes that Walker never did

AtmosphereToday at 10:37 AM
ofc

anOKguyToday at 10:38 AM
attack the opposition more

AtmosphereToday at 10:38 AM
i feel that the transfer of dias and the improvement of rodri has made man city unstoppable
and they look that they are going to win the league, without much fuss
they are clean favorites, imo
and it is because of their defense, mainly

anOKguyToday at 10:41 AM
Rodri has gotten much more confident too
Yes, how crazy after last year that their defense will win them the league
seems Pep finally spent enough on defenders!

AtmosphereToday at 10:42 AM
he bought so many, finally he found the ideal ones
it is important to keep them in form and confident
but he is very good at this

anOKguyToday at 10:42 AM
Nathan Ake is now the best 4th string CB in the world
Cancelo has been one of the best SBs in the league
and playing both sides almost evenly
that is crazy

AtmosphereToday at 10:43 AM
imagine, konami gave him and downgrade, he was 85 in pes20 and 82 in pes21

anOKguyToday at 10:43 AM
so impressive

AtmosphereToday at 10:43 AM
but the opposite happened

anOKguyToday at 10:43 AM
hahahahahaha yes
has we not so good last season and then now is their best at the position

AtmosphereToday at 10:44 AM
i feel that the rise of cristiano in the last 17 years, helped in a way but
portugal right now look epic
epic players in every position

anOKguyToday at 10:44 AM
false 9 Bernardo Silva currently!
One of the things I want to mention before I forget is that Cancelo on offense going to the pivot position next to Rodri frees KDB and Gundogan up to go more attacking
and give them freedom
When he plays as a regular SB he goes very high and gives the RWF the chance to go inside and City play a sort of double false 9
One dropping even deeper but the players interchanging there

AtmosphereToday at 10:46 AM
and the enemy teams are never sure what to expect

anOKguyToday at 10:46 AM
just constant movement into half spaces

AtmosphereToday at 10:47 AM
so after all, what you think about dias defense? and also what about his aggresion?

anOKguyToday at 10:47 AM
I have the same number actually in mind for him if he continues his level hahaha
better with small steps and time
but he has been truly at a top level this season
I'll add this to his thread in a few minutes
Also Aguero coming back just in time to seal the title
Anything else before I copy this over? @Atmosphere

AtmosphereToday at 10:51 AM
whatever you want, also i am not sure about his speed stats, put whatever value you have thought of
but yea, he deserves a small step upgrade, and we will see later for a bigger one

anOKguyToday at 10:53 AM
let me pull up what I have on him quick to check against the PSD set
one second
Still loading on the site lol
Ah yes I have him a little lower!
Mostly in agility
What about you?

AtmosphereToday at 11:04 AM
the truth is that his agility is probably his weakest part tbh
but at the same time, i have seen doing fast and agile stuff, both offensively and defensively in situations
i'd be between 74 and 75 probably... not sure

Yesterday was a beautiful moment to show how good a defense he is, and I think he got a good grade.
canceling Firmino anticipating and pressing forward.
With him on the field, Manchester City has good numbers in defense
His impact has been very good on the team and on the tactical disposition.
Although he had a penalty error against Salah, but the team went ahead to win the match.

with the arrival of Ruben, the Stones blossomed) Is it not d-line control? Please correct if I am wrong.
I watch a lot of City games, and this young man clearly deserves an increase in Defense

Absolutely is a D-line control type player. I have a high yellow defense value in mind and a good number of other changes. Absolute rock at the back. That Liverpool game was one of the only times I have seen any type of mistake from him. Blocks everything, controls the defense, and just keeps things out. Ederson has very little to do thanks in large part to the arrival of Dias. Absolutely top tier performances this year, I wonder how good he was in Portugal since I didn't follow him there. The cliche will get old quickly, but he has had a VVD like impact in just how much he immediately improved this defense. City last year and City this year are like night and day different because of this. Cannot give enough praise.

It is true, his presence in defense and the confidence he transmits has made his teammates grow around him, Cancelo, Zinchenko, Gundogan, and even Stones !!! who we gave up for lost.
He has a very natural and total control of the lower zone, he anticipates and coordinates very well, strong and timekeeper.
Much of the City's success is thanks to him and the domino effect caused.
In terms of stats, it needs an update, I won't give the suggestions until after the game today
Hopefully and we don't end up burning him, let's be attentive to today's performance.

Here is most of the Dias related talk recently on Discord for those who have not seen it. This should give some backdrop on the current thoughts on the player.

Spoiler: show
amine — 04/28/2021
look at that
rubén controlling the line so well
not letting neymars run disturb him
top notch


falsenine — 04/28/2021
Dias needs to be way higher


lovley fellow — 04/28/2021
what is ruben dias set looking like

amine — 04/28/2021
rather poor

lovley fellow — 04/28/2021
he's been good this season right?

amine — 04/28/2021
yes
brought good mentality to this team

ABeD — 04/28/2021
Slow, solid, aggressive

amine — 04/28/2021
not sure he's that good defensively

ABeD — 04/28/2021
Bad on the ball
He's ok imo
Like a 82

amine — 04/28/2021
and he's slow as heck

falsenine — 04/28/2021
this is @anOKguy's set


amine — 04/28/2021
89 def? 87 bb?
nah...
current bb is generous enough
he's bodied by every big guy in the league

amine — 04/28/2021
i like that set tho
i would have him on lower def
like 84 or so
and bump mentality even higher
and give him d-line control

amine — 04/28/2021
@lovley fellow can you test that rubén set

falsenine — 04/28/2021
eh.. id say thats kinda low
considering who else is around that in the PL

amine — 04/28/2021
and then test it with 84 def, 85 bb, 90 mentality
i'd like to see the contrast

falsenine — 04/28/2021
what do you think of thiago silvas def btw amine?

ABeD — 04/28/2021
Orange still

amine — 04/28/2021
it's fine, no?

falsenine — 04/28/2021
hmm, so you think theres a 6 pt gap between him and ruben? i dont see that

ABeD — 04/28/2021
What's silva's bb and resp
I defo see a quite sizeable gap in overarching def skill

amine — 04/28/2021
ye
silva is obviously a better defender
and player overall

amine — 04/28/2021
at city laporte is a better defender than rubén
and stones a better player

amine — 04/28/2021
but rubén brings stability to this backline
cause all he does is defend
no-nonsense like keano would say


falsenine — 04/28/2021
accent on the wrong letter smh
i feel like city kinda neeeded that

amine — 04/28/2021
you often see him shouting at the players

ABeD — 04/28/2021
in new gen i'd give Dias a good 86 def pro tbh

amine — 04/28/2021
maybe he should be on 85

ABeD — 04/28/2021
yeah

lovley fellow — 04/28/2021
that ruben dias is 87 at CB
amine — 04/28/2021
87 is too high

amine — 04/28/2021
vinnie, how bout ruben's set with the other changes?

lovley fellow — 04/28/2021
what changes

amine — 04/28/2021
85 def, 85 bb, 90 ment

lovley fellow — 04/28/2021
ill see

lovley fellow — 04/28/2021
ruben dis is 86 just about on the dot with those changes

amine — 04/28/2021
like 85 point what?

lovley fellow — 04/28/2021
86.02153111

ABeD — 04/28/2021
i can live with dias at 86

amine — Yesterday at 4:23 PM
what a block
rúben with them jt/vidic vibes


AngloSaxonJackson — Yesterday at 4:23 PM
Damn. Dias is a defensive beast.

lovley fellow — Yesterday at 5:13 PM
amine
ill update your ruben dias set
do you have it on hand?

amine — Yesterday at 5:15 PM
ocrin already made the update

anOKguy — Yesterday at 5:18 PM
'twas mine with Amine saying 84 defense, Vinnie :slight_smile:
I had him a bit higher than 84
ah and I think a little more bb Amine went for lower with

amine — Yesterday at 5:19 PM
i had him at higher mentality
we can't always get what we want
:sad:

anOKguy — Yesterday at 5:19 PM
Ahhh which was right and I upgraded mine after too
it was a good shout, mad man
Dias, not you
:kommander:

amine — Yesterday at 5:19 PM
ye, he's really not that strong
he gets overpowered frequently :doubt
he's strong against the weak
weak against the strong
if you know what i mean

anOKguy — Yesterday at 5:21 PM
Yeah, he has this more like chaotic nature of throwing himself into everything at times that can come off really well or really poorly too
@lovley fellow what do you think of Dias?

lovley fellow — Yesterday at 5:23 PM
big upgrade on otamendi
city seem way more defensively solid than before
stones seems better than before too

anOKguy — Yesterday at 5:25 PM
Yes he covers Stones exceptionally and is very fundamentally sound
what do you think of Dias' def? And their defense has been no joke in the league

lovley fellow — Yesterday at 5:33 PM
i'll give ruben 85 def?
agree/disagree?

anOKguy — Yesterday at 5:33 PM
He is higher to me

amine — Yesterday at 5:33 PM
it's just one point, but gotta say i disagree

anOKguy — Yesterday at 5:33 PM
but steps

lovley fellow — Yesterday at 5:59 PM
how do you see ruben dias josev?
particularly his def

amine — Yesterday at 6:00 PM
i don't understand why you don't trust yourselves

anOKguy — Yesterday at 6:00 PM
Vinnie said he hasn't seen too much of him I think

amine — Yesterday at 6:00 PM
we accumulated enough experience to know that we usually have the same povs

lovley fellow — Yesterday at 6:00 PM
i haven't watched much

amine — Yesterday at 6:00 PM
if there's a disagreement it'll always raise before or after an update anywyas

lovley fellow — Yesterday at 6:01 PM
so just getting a feel of other povs to check opinions
i dont want to watch so many vs vids lol

josev — Yesterday at 6:01 PM
haven't been wathcing a lot of city this season, so don't have an in-depth opinion
mid yellows everyone suggesting seems right

lovley fellow — Yesterday at 6:02 PM
ok
seems low to me


anOKguy — Yesterday at 6:02 PM
Man, it is low
he is a pure rock

lovley fellow — Yesterday at 6:02 PM
but i'll leave it if you both say so

anOKguy — Yesterday at 6:02 PM
watched a lot of City this year and god he was elite for long stretches
believe @Akephalos was also a real fan if he is on

amine — Yesterday at 6:03 PM
laporte is a better defender, let's be real

anOKguy — Yesterday at 6:03 PM
Laporte is on 91 defense

amine — Yesterday at 6:03 PM
he is? lmao
since when?

yeah Rob upgraded last summer
like a year ago

amine — Yesterday at 6:03 PM
last time he was still 88
woah

anOKguy — Yesterday at 6:04 PM
second best EPL defender
Dias is definitely over 84
but my two cents

amine — Yesterday at 6:04 PM
i'm not convinced he is

anOKguy — Yesterday at 6:04 PM
Vinnie, you were saying higher too from your preliminary impressions?

amine — Yesterday at 6:05 PM
solely out of his cl performances
in the league city are playing easy mode

lovley fellow — Yesterday at 6:05 PM
seems higher yeah
i see barca defenders
who are a clownshow
with lenglet and pique

amine — Yesterday at 6:05 PM
so, it's hard to get a good grasp of what they're really capable of

anOKguy — Yesterday at 6:05 PM
I'm going off league, not paid much attention to UCL this year. He had one pen error but that was like it through February

lovley fellow — Yesterday at 6:05 PM
ruben seems alot more solid

falsenine — Yesterday at 6:06 PM
ruben is comfortably more solid than 84 def lol

ABeD — Yesterday at 6:06 PM
Dias looked like he was hovering between 82-88 in def in the games I've watched so can't help y guys

anOKguy — Yesterday at 6:06 PM
For the CBs that've played a good amount this year in the EPL Dias has been setting the bar

amine — Yesterday at 6:06 PM
the system blends the individuals, they're never left to defend alone
i'm not seeing rúben alone that often

anOKguy — Yesterday at 6:07 PM
Dias is covering a lot Stones to protect him from being exposed and insane with blocks

falsenine — Yesterday at 6:07 PM
its not like city were doing well defensively before dias came in though

ABeD — Yesterday at 6:07 PM
His resp and ment are really high

amine — Yesterday at 6:08 PM
city had one of the best defensive records in the league with stones/otamendi

anOKguy — Yesterday at 6:08 PM
One of though tough SOBs that positions himself exceptionally well to cut things out

amine — Yesterday at 6:08 PM
like 8 consecutive clean sheets

ABeD — Yesterday at 6:08 PM
Where do you guys have dias def?

falsenine — Yesterday at 6:08 PM
true, but as far as i recall they were monopolizing possession alot more then they do now

anOKguy — Yesterday at 6:09 PM
88/89
87/88 response but might be higher at times, mentality I raised to high yellows ~87 recently

Akephalos — Yesterday at 6:30 PM
imma ruben dias fanboy

anOKguy — Yesterday at 6:32 PM
Portuguese brick wall!

Akephalos — Yesterday at 6:32 PM
84 def seems a bit low for dias imo


amine — Today at 3:40 AM
here's ruben

and here's marqui

what looks better to you

AngloSaxonJackson — Today at 3:42 AM
On paper it looks like Marquinhos edges it. Fewer clearances, blocks and lost possession more, but was more active on the ball, won more duels, and hit the woodwork.
I don't really remember his ground duels though, asides from one where he did well against KDB.
Anyhow, like I said he played well. I just didn't see that as being a 95 Def game.

amine — Today at 3:44 AM
yes, i can understand that
but that was a very good game
fewer clearances is a good thing btw

AngloSaxonJackson — Today at 3:44 AM
Oh for sure. I don't remember a single mistake.
I imagine context would be required to dig into any of these stats though. Clearances could be bad, but it depends on what your options are in the moment.

It's kind of like how some people applaud defenders who get lots of tackles, but how football as a whole has moved away from tackling. So if we applaud tacklers does that mean older defenders (even as recent as 2010) are better? Or they just defended differently?

amine — Today at 3:47 AM
ruben is quite old school as a defender
tbf
he only defends

you cannot expect more from him
he's brilliant on his own right

AngloSaxonJackson — Today at 3:48 AM
Yep, Dias is a bit limited technically

amine — Today at 3:48 AM
vocal and never lets his team-mates switch out
that quality made city's backline look far more impressive

AngloSaxonJackson — Today at 3:49 AM
Yeah! I noticed how in the second half even after their second goal he absolutely would not let anyone rest. Every clearance he was the first one jogging out demanding they all step up and get out of the box. Fantastic resolve and leadership from him.

amine — Today at 3:49 AM
leadership is a rare quality
especially for someone so young
i say young
cause he's a cb
you're only at your prime past your mid twenties

AngloSaxonJackson — Today at 3:51 AM
Yeah, he's really quite the talent. After seeing him and Bruno come from Portugal and hit the ground and immediately look World Class, it opens your eyes at the fact that quality players are out there in other leagues.


Wanted to do this all at once and sort of went down the rabbit hole, the result is 100 GIFs of Dias defending this year and some truly brilliant stuff. One of Amine's biggest things was that he had not seen him defend 1v1 really and the other thing is he said he was was mostly going off the last UCL games. So I took those games in particular to pull material from and then supplemented with extra footage. There is a good deal of that in these gifs that should provide a good glimpse on what this guy is capable of. I've been raving the last months on him, and think these start to do him justice and explain why. Honestly, yes he is just a pure defender who loves to get stuck in and do the dirty work, so for me this part of his game needs more highlighting and his defense level is very high yellow value currently and City needed this type of player. He feels like a throwback defender and his bulky nature and somewhat slow nature with not anywhere what you would expect from a City CB on the ball skills make him a bit odd with Pep and given who City have rolled out the last years. However, this guy has been the best defender in the EPL this year to play consistently and the nastiness and bit of the bastard he brings to this backline fixed a huge issue that they were experiencing prior. Dias has the ability to step in to break up play, the ability to cover players like Stones and act as that safety net, and just one of the best penchants for making blocks and tracking runs. To me, is terms of defensive ability he is really complete and his overall defensive impact is extremely high. Yes, his athleticism isn't elite in terms of what is expected now from a CB, same with ball playing. But, the impact he has had on this City team in the league and in Europe is pretty unquestionable for me now. He made John Stones look very good, and the overall defensive contributions he has made has made a world of difference in this side. The amount of shots Ederson faces is incredibly low. They're 7 less goals conceded than the next closest defense (9 less than last year with 4 games to go), facing 1.5 less shots per game than the next closest team, committing the second fewest fouls per game (0.1 more than the lowest team), and helping ensure Ederson is making the least saves per game. Next to John Stones and largely without Fernandinho as the shield. VVD comparison will be made and should only be done so in terms of immediate impact on solidifying a previously more porous defense. Nothing alike in terms of playing styles. Plus, the VVD impact was even more immense as the club did not have someone at the club like Laporte. However, lets not let that take anything away from Dias. Anyways, enjoy the below material as it took a lot of effort to make those all. Guy has been killing it in the league and is part of a nice wave of needed defensive reinforcements in the EPL this year. Cream of the crop, and my defender of the year by a long ways. In terms of the set, just the defense needs to go up (88-89) as the rest was from my set on my personal sheets except mentality being rightly raised, bb being lowered a little, and defense being lowered a good bit. Cheers!

I liked tbh the improvement on his defence price but i still think he is an orange price.

Not only his def, but also response and mentality

So, i suggest:

Def: 90+++
Balance: 88++
Response: 91+
Sh pass acc: 76
Sh pass speed: 80
Long pass speed: 81
Head: 84++
Jump: 87++
Tenacity: 90++
Teamwork: 85

New Aggression: 95+ i think

Add Tackling/sliding

Ok, you might think that my prices-suggestions are "too much" but i think that after his last performances he "deserves" these.
