Re: Oswaldo Alanís

I cant recall clearly but I think he had an identical type of delivery/effort last match vs Minnesota, again with his left foot -and this time they took it too early and had to do it again after whistle, both times left foot. ...for some reason my brain saying Figal in Miami did this with his left (...

Re: Inter Miami CF - Formation & Tactics / Team Discussion Thread

First match was 4-5-1 with no clear direction, they did well in flashes vs LAFC away, but lacked cohesion between the segments/lines of play. vs DC United, they played a 5-4-1, and it was a much more clear performance as a collective, and really before the red card for Torres for hand ball as last m...

Re: New York City FC - Formation & Tactics / Team Discussion Thread

Well that was gut punch for them, they conceded in the final second of the match, after controlling parts of the game well and being squandering chances in the first half. Tigres seemed off, their passing sometimes was SPA 50s for most players, NYCFC looked clever with their movement and interchange...

Re: André-Pierre Gignac

played a deeper SS role - sometimes when Tigres broke forward he was no where to be seen for a long while, I thought he was subbed out a couple times). Had nice dribble move in the box and ran into Sands wanting a pen, but a defender can't just teleport out of the way. Shooting was not on point toni...

Re: Jesse Gonzalez

I keep reading comments that he is some great keeper/talent and sometimes commentators mention his name in conversation of USMNT - but he has consistently underwhelmed me whenever I caught a full match of Dallas. Maybe he was in a rough rough run of form and it made a bad impression, I seen him a lo...

Re: Jimmy Maurer

Saved about 25% of penalties in his career, doubt he will get more play time to show it more concretely, but a candidate for the ability.

Played NASL before MLS, looked to be a very capable offensive keeper with his distribution in open play and goal kicks both leading to goals.

Re: FC Dallas - Formation & Tactics / Team Discussion Thread

2019 formation added - generally this or a derivative - midfield shape changes sometimes, rarely back 3 is played with wing backs in mid. Early 2018 I think they had a more 4-2-3-1 shape before the sold Mauro Diaz their playmaker, after Lucho tinkered around and by seasons end they had, this, at lea...

Re: Cristian Colmán

This is a rough set, I did not see many (any?) full matches with him just scoured youtube and MLSSoccer.com clips, some things like passing I am unsure of, just that there was nothing of note (more misplays than good). Fast, and a able to finish with head or a clean strike, his problem is that at ML...

Re: Zdeněk Ondrášek

Touched some values, overall set is good. He played maybe 200 mins in the first 3/4ths of the season, I have no idea what was the issue (was not injured), Luchi Gonzalez just simply did not like him for the #9 spot - Jesus Ferreira a teenager was favoured often over the veteran. Then everything chan...

Re: Bressan

Adjusted some values. backup CB, sometimes plays to close out matches as a sub or emergency RB - though you wont get much offensive support from that side then - can send a nice pass down the line - once he made a neat through ball from his own half to put a player in on goal - but that seems to be ...

In older PES we only have Keeper Skills to reflect the handling of keepers, I think this is the worst area of his? He seems to punch and parry a lot of shots, less grabbing them and ending danger, his spills cause chaos for SKC's backline sometimes. ... Daniel Vega 75 Quakes, Matt Turner 74 Revs, Ty...

Barely played, seen him subbed on once can't recall him doing anything. Was supposed to be an extra piece to help the team push in the playoffs, came mid-season but often was not even on the bench, Luchi Gonzalez preferring to keep playing teenagers from the academy instead. "A common critique ...

Re: Alphonso Davies

Disagree, still think he is mid-60s for DA, multiple times of him starting a dribble from a stand still and kicks the ball away too far ahead and a turn over results. These incidents to me still outweigh the fewer decent moves he has done. I originally had him low 70s for DA when I had not followed ...
