There's now been some time since those displays though, and I watched some goals compilations just now to re-familiarize myself with di natale. i've came away from that thinking he should be at least a 97 or so technique. it's not just some of the touches we shared in his old thread, it's also how he takes down passes to shoot. He had one goal where he killed it on the run from a fifty yard long pass bergkamp like. he shows that absolutely unmistakable level of control unique even to red level trappers, that i'm pretty sure his technique level should be at least around 97, maybe more. my impression is that he's actually equally somewhere between 97-98 TEC, it might be either way depending on his consistency and variety, because his best touches are right there besides the best ever.
I still don't really know di natale though, this is just something that really stuck out as i watched his goals. The other thing i'm super impressed with is di natale's ST, but the current rating is pretty much how i see him (he might be closer to 97 ST as well in my opinion though.
on the other hand, i get the impression that his DA, DS, and even agility are noticeably less than how he's rated, and he seems less explosive than this accleration rating. i've been watching a tonne of del piero over the last few weeks and i'm actually a huge fan of the kind of player del piero is because of his wonderfully elegant, dribbling which depends so much on timing and almost pure technique in each dribble. i also think del piero has a beautiful touch that is at least 95 tec, but i see di natale being even a tier above him. But regarding DA, and DS, i actually feel theres a much bigger gap to del piero's favour, who was supposedly much slower, but was far more capable at carrying the ball towards the goal and attacking with his dribbles than what i'm seeing out of di natale.
Was he consistently as good as those best touches he could make? because if so, i see him easily above 95 tec. i actually find it a bit hard to see him being less consistent than a 97 tec since his best touches are so incredible. i also wonder if di natale was really as good of a dribbler as this.
