the one at 0:41 is also a great pass, and one of his trademarks, too bad the video only shows the ball landing on Gaitan but it's an impressive ball with range and accuracy, the kind of ball that warrants him *early cross

Tellmo, JMVP i ask you both, does Gaitan deserve a better SA? seems legit to raise slightly.

I don't know, i don't see him as being any worst than Quaresma in pure close control and accuracy, but most times i feel in game this value is well enough to replicate him, with a higher value it might become easy to make him take on multiple opponents, which is not something you usually see from him. He can do it, by all means, just doesn't show it often. Anyway, not against a very small increase, nor really for it either.
I think i'd rather see an increase in technique, he's got a magic touch... well overall, looking at pass, trapping and dribbling, i'd say, in a nutshell, that he's the most refined technical player in the league.
The point that i have more doubts about is TW. Although Gaitan is a team player and not a selfish dribbler by any means, i think he just doesn't support the team with movement enough to warrant yellows, he always shows a lot of quality but many times he lacks in quantity. Partially because he's a bit inconsistent. Salvio on the other hand is more active but less of a playmaker, less of a collective player let's say, who deserves the higher TW value in the end i'm really not sure.

I would go for slight higher SA, TECH i wouldn't mind him being 89/90, his touch is class like you said, i agree. I don't agree on TW drop. 80 is a pretty okay number to justify what he does. I mean your right, but that why he doesn't have 80+.

Against Zenit showed great mentality (and very good TW).
Seemed the Maxi Pereira... :D He was a very hardworking player!
It gets him very well the shirt number 10.

Couldn't his LPA be even higher? I've seen him delivering spetacular long passes, with perfect aim... Even last night he sent a terrific long pass twards Salvio, the ball ended right in salvio's feet, the pass was even more amazing if we consider than mid air it produced a curve in the direction of Salvio... Maybe weighted pass could be added also. Against Arouca he had alreaddy produced similar long passes, but this one was trully amazing.

Dribbling: 9087/88

I consider this value "overkill".
In my view the Portuguese League no have a player which deserve this value...

The value proposed by KONAMI, 87, seems to me more realistic.

Isn't his SP value a little conservative? I'll rate him at 80 at least, he doesn't have a cannon on his foot but has power on his shots, not so far from Messi if you ask me. Also Acrobatic Finish has to be added.

I disagree with an increase in SP, 78 is a good number for him (and works great)... I agree with Acrobatic Finish ( _tick ).

In my view the Nico's SET is very well done, I just disagree on the DA, the value is too high (in my view does not work), 87/88 is more realistic.

Agree with Tellmo.
He's a great dribbler, but a 88 for DA would emulate him better.

He's much faster than this, his TS is totally underrated. 84 would be much more fair.
