Whilst I agree with the statement above, I disagree to any raise in mentality. Whilst Howard is a very good goalkeeper, he can often appear to be a little too relaxed at times, and he certainly isn't the type of goalkeeper who will make a massive effort to come and collect an incoming ball, often le...

Re: Carlos VALDERRAMA | 1993-1994

Since when did Valderrama deserve a 78 for attack? When did he ever show that sort of attacking intelligence? Since when did Valderrama ever use his attacking intelligence to evade his marker? Or take up threatening positions in the box? This was never a part of Valderrama's play, and yet you're try...

His passing could come up, but not by much. His passing a lot of the time is woeful and his passes often go astray and in completely the wrong direction, at the very most he should low 70's at most for SPA, his SPS could probably stay the same.Same with his LPS, it could come up a bit, but his long ...

Re: Emile HESKEY

I feel his balance is perhaps over looked because he is black? correct me if im wrong I feel that is a fantastic point, I feel his current 92 value for balance is vastly underrating Heskey as this value makes him near ineffective in game, in stark contrast to the pivotal part he usually plays when ...

Re: Ledley KING

I really don't agree to your stats, Stu. Yes, King is one of the best central defenders in the Premier League, and yes, his call up to the England national team is fully deserved. However, he doesn't have equal tackling or positioning to John Terry, nor is his pure positional sense or defensive inte...

Re: Scott PARKER

I've updated, but I have kept SPA at his original value. Whilst Parker can be a creative passer of the ball, his role in the West Ham side is mainly to play the ball simply and not try anything incisive with his passing, a yellow value will give him the extra confidence to make more risky passes, wh...

I have to be honest, I think Vermaelen is certainly the better positional defender out him and Kolo. Whilst Vermaelen's positioning can at times be lax, the majority of the time he is at the right position in his own penalty area and knows how close to stay to his defender. In conclusion, he is gene...

Re: Charlie ADAM

Paddy, would you say he's warranted a raise in team work since his move to Blackpool? He's certainly settled in well and gelled quickly with his Blackpool team-mates, and certainly shows a very good amount of vision as well as team awareness whilst performing for Blackpool, as well as a tendency to ...

Woah, I usually agree with your stats Jez, they often seem to be accurate and well thought out but I have to say I certainly have some disagreement with this set. Whilst it's true Collins has had a good season, an 84 response is certainly not justified yet, I don't even think he's better than Roger ...

Re: Leighton BAINES

There are more important issues than his shooting stats, in my opinion. His balance most certainly has to come up, he can certainly hold his own against the bigger wingers in the Premiership and is by no means a pushover, he could certainly go up to at least an 80 value, if not one higher. His stami...

There's plenty of players that don't get comment so it's nothing personal against a particular player, it's just the way it goes. Well yeah, I'm aware that the situation is similar in the whole EPL, but since Arsenal is my favourite team, I feel the biggest pain about it :) I really didn't want to ...

Re: Pepe REINA

Re: Branislav IVANOVIC

Lowering his defence by 4 points would be a crime You have to remember that *CB's and *SB's are rated very differently in these areas, an 80 defence for a registered CB is very much an average value for someone playing at the highest level, but the same value for someone whom is a registered SB is ...

Re: Heurelho GOMES

Rather than raising his response, I think his agility could go two points higher. In all honesty, I'm struggling to think of a goalkeeper who is athletic as he is, in the Premier League anyway. He really does have an exceptional ability to get up and make double saves, and absolutely fly across the ...

I'm not doubting they would, but that doesn't make them correct. I was the one who originally pushed for a 96 in jump, as some of the heights he can reach whilst jumping are of brodbdingnagian proportions. His header could maybe go up a couple, but I'd certainly have his jump higher than his header....

There are certainly areas which could be tweaked, and I'm sure you and Paddy will come up with somethi...
