CB should be added as a second position, he’s playing there solidly in a back 3 and he’s got defensive chops. Not what he had promised to be of course, but he’s really a very solid defender. That being said, 72/73 defense is more than enough for him. Dribbling would be potentially +1 DA to 75 and -2/-3DS to 76/77. He’s got actually quite nice control and can make good moves and control in tight space better than a ton of others at the position and a solid number of midfielders... but I’m not really strong on the increase as he’s in between the current and the +1 but wanted to throw out. He is slower on the ball though for sure enough to note. His crossing is accurate but really tends to be floated and lacking that speed needed to get where it needs to go. I have 76/77 LPA and 73 LPS in mind, that highlights the solid placement but lack of speed with which most his crosses are sent. TS 82 and ACC 81 paired with AGI 74/75 feel needed as well. WFF to 3. Aggression to 75 is correct given his more reserved nature and I agree with the slight increase in short passing but still would likely do 77 SPA (although that’s a slight difference) and SPS maybe 75/76 range personally. Finally, the 69 attack is a good number.
Order is all sorts of ugly and my apologies for that, a bit scatter brained going back and catching other things worth noting. He’s a solid LB, but can’t be relied upon to stay fit and injuries have ravaged his insanely promising career. He had a very respectable 2018/19 and parts of this campaign, but again you cannot put any trust into him being the week in and week out LB. Brandon Williams is a tough kid with a huge heart and scrappy edge to his game... but he has massive inadequacies when forced to bring the ball up the left flank and when he’s targeted by a possession oriented or even just an incisive team like what Sevilla did to him. He’s fine when it’s just nonstop running and he can play on the break and use his athleticism. Being deployed on the side of his weaker foot doesn’t help. I’ll copy this into his thread in a few. Anyways it’s Shaw and Williams currently with Fosu Mensah getting a little peak. That’s definitely not good enough. Shaw being able to start and then play as LCB or LB is good, but he’s not the guy for a full season. United will need to address this. If he could stay healthy, it wouldn’t be a big need. However, with his track record the recent fixtures since his latest injury are all the more proof that this is something pressing if they’re to maintain top 4 form into the next season when hopefully a few more teams rebound into better form and give us some more competitive and high level UCL competition to watch in England.

Both his attack and defence seem 72 to me. Stamina looks +2 than this to 88, LPA to 81, and curling to 75. Hopefully he'll stay fit so he can compete with Chilwell for LB position in England squad for Euro 2020.
