Pulpo Romero, La Roda CF

Postby PES Stats Database » 2014 Mar 25, 16:06

Full name: Francisco José Andrés Romero


Info:

Francisco "Pulpo" José Andrés Romero is a Spanish Goalkeeper who played for the majority his early career at low-league Spanish clubs. He is regarded as an excellent shot-stopping Goalkeeper.
In the summer of 2012, Pulpo moved for the first time abroad, signing for Doxa Katokopias F.C. in Cyprus, but he was immediately loaned-out to AEK Larnaca, as the two clubs agreed to exchange their back-up Goalkeepers, Alexandre Negri and Pulpo Romero, on-loan.
Even though, AEK had as their number one Goalkeeper Israeli International Guy Haimov, a top-class Goalkeeper, Pulpo Romero managed to play four league games for AEK as well as many cup games that season.
His consistent performances with AEK Larnaca, secured him a contact with fellow Cypriot club AEL Limassol for the following season, where he was also regarded as a back-up. However, he managed to play in nine league games that season having many great performances.
In the 2014-15 Season, Romero became AEL's first-choice goalkeeper after Karim Fegrouche was injured in a game against Tottenham Hotspur in the Europa League. He took his opportunity and established himself as a consistent performer in an under-performing AEL team.
After a bad season for AEL, including a loss in the Cypriot Cup Final to APOEL and finishing in the bottom half of the table, Romero was one of the many AEL players who were released because of falling budgets and re-building of the squad.
Following his release from AEL, Romero continued his career abroad, signing for struggling Romanian giants, Rapid București, where he was their first-choice goalkeeper, until January 2016 when he requested to leave the club in order to return to Spain.
Pulpo's next destination was SD Ponferradina of the Spanish Segunda División. however, he found himself immediately loaned-out to third-tier Spanish club, Atlético Astorga, for the rest of the Season.

I must be old fashioned because i don't like seeing goalkeepers on such low values but on the other hand i cant say i have watched Romero playing, i only heard that he did well for AEK last year. First thing that i noticed is passing speeds, it seem kinda low for any pro player, i would prefer the good old standard we have had for passing before (55-65). Judging from the set i can't see any virtue at all.

EDIT: Also why is attack on 38?

Probably I should have given him 78 Response. Passing wise he is far from great, but if his SPS snd LPS are going to increase by let's say 3 points each, I would like SPA and LPA to rise also by 1 point each to maintain something like a gap between accuracy and speed. Attack 38 is probably a problem of the set which I used as a base.

Updated attack and response, left passing stats as it is because these need to be discussed more. Would you say he's practically useless at putting speed behind his passes or he doesn't make distant ground/aerial passes, for example he does the Alabi :lol: or a teammate pulls back and makes a really short and weak pass?

I always thought that goalkeepers put more power and accuracy behind their shots/passes than the rest of the players, bar those special ones who kick hard but have no accuracy whatsoever.
I must have deleted s-cobar's (really old) PM about goalkeeper stats but i remember that gk's who shoot the ball right after the half-line of the pitch usually get a value between 80-83 for shot power if they do it constantly. About passing (spa/sps, lpa/lps) we usually had standard values which were between 55-65 as i said in my previous post, with spa and lpa starting from 50 to 60 at most sets, sps and lps usually being around 60-65, whoever had higher than 65 was a special kind of player like Reina, Neuer and now De Gea who usually pinpoint-pass players most of the time, from either goal kicks, drop kicks or grounded long passes.

He is definitely not good at his passes. They are "unsure passes" in the majority of cases, if you no what I mean. He doesn't do "the Alabi" :D often, but it is mostly because when playing with him defenders are more careful and come closer to him to exchange passes.

His SPS and LPS can rise to 50(+4) and 52(+4) to make it a bit more realistic.

Overall, he isn't a bad goalkeeper. He can do as No.2 for all the teams in Cyprus, except those that play in European competitions.

Bytheway, he is really impressive.
He might not play for 3 months and then come into the team and make a Man of the Match performance!
Saved AEL several times Vs Salamina in the weekend, and made a very good performance in the White Hart Lane also!

Following his release from _rou Rapid București, he signed for _esp SD Ponferradina on a free-transfer.
However, a couple of days later he found himself out-on-loan at _esp Atlético Astorga.
Please move him.

Signed for _esp La Roda CF.
He is not a bad Goalkeeper by any means... I am surprised that he continues his career in such a low level, like Spanish 3rd or 4th Divisions... Used to be consistent in Cyprus for big clubs, AEK Larnaca and AEL Limassol, which resulted in him being signed for Romanian giants, Rapid Bucureşti, after his departure from Cyprus. His Shot-Stopping ability and Reflexes are his biggest assets, and if he had a bit more height to help him be a more "balanced" and complete Goalkeeper, he wouldn't have been far-off former AEK Larnaca Goalkeeper, Toño Ramírez, who will start the Season as Real Sociedad's Starting Goalkeeper.
