His current stats represent him when he played as a WF, his main position should be WB or SM nowadays. Also you could add SB as an alternate position as he played that for his NT.
Attack: 77 -> 76 , Well, he should have main position changed, but he still has a good positional sense while attacking, managing to get behind defender's backs MANY times (whenever he's not staying behind and just passing back, he waits for the right time)
Defence: 53 -> 56 , he has a good tackle and recovers many balls, he also plays in a more defensive position at Wigan too (edit: just noticed KONAMI gives him 57, coincidence?).
Balance: 82 -> 83-84 , he's really strong and wins most physical battles when he starts running down a wing, i actually see him a bit higher then Milner (83) and Malouda (83).
Response: 80 -> 77 , not as sharp as the good old days, also adjusting to new standards.
Explosive Power: 86 -> 83 , 86 was too high, but he's still realy agile. His main tool for beating opponents was his acceleration and physical prowress not agility or DA.
Short Pass Accuracy: 72 -> 73-74 , 72's way too low and he doesn't have that much of a bad pass.
Short Pass Speed: 71 -> 77 , he can really put some speed on his passes, it's just that with his bad accuracy they end up going 2 far from his teammates in both NT and Wigan.
Shot Accuracy: 73 -> 68 , Bad shot, good ol' Beausejour (i can even see him in the 69... didnt sound good)
Shot Technique: 79 -> 70 , 79? I've never seen him have such a good shot, nothing above 76. Actually i thought his shooting was one of his worst traits.
Free Kick Accuracy/Place kicking: 78 -> 68 , WTF? I've never seen him take a free kick, let alone have him score one even as a joke in practice.
Header: 72 -> 75 , I believe it was suggested before, his header is not that bad and he has scored with headers. (At least... 5 times minimum)
Mentality: 82 -> 78 , His mentality is not the same as BACK THEN (in his golden era 2009-2010), he seems to fight less and less, and that's why he dropped in mentality and stamina (stamina at 84 is fine, but BACK THEN he deserved at least an 86).
Team Work: 80 -> 77 , not that much of a good understanding with his teammates, adjusting to new standards.
Defence awareness: 1 -> 2 , Both in Wigan and NT he defends alot, don't know why he had 1.
Would anybody consider S07 - Shoulder Feint Skills for him?
edit: Hmmm, LMF main position, Why the FREEKICK did KONAMI give him AMF as 2ndary?
