Yeah... This alone makes me question the reliability of the stats.

Lol that was a fluke goal man but I do agree that these stats need revising. He is actually quite a good defender. He reads the game well and that helps make up for his lack of size as a CB. I have to say with his current jump stat and height, he is going to lose too many aerial battles.

Some suggestions..

Defense +2 (I actually think he is better positionally than Onyewu who is at 78)
Jump +5
Header +2
Mentality +3
TW +3

For what I've seen of him, he looks less agile. Still not sure about a concrete value, but he certainly doesn't deserve greens for AGI.
Jump is also somewhat questionable. He's not that weak in the air. I'd go for 80-81 in his case.
BTW, you can create a thread for Nordsjælland, since we have around 8 players of the club in PSD.

I don't know if this stats are right, always thought he'd be a Side Back in the first place.

Yup, I think SB should be his main position.

When he played in MLS, I think he was a CB but in Denmark, I'm pretty sure he was SB the whole time. Same with U.S. national team.

Looks pretty good but I think his main position should be SB as you pointed out earlier.

I think his jump can come yellow, he used to be a centerback and with his low height and low jump - he would be killed in the air.

Updated.

Despite that wonder goal 10 years ago, his first, and some good ones in Denmark that I could find highlights of 8 years ago, he has since transformed into a very conservative CB, his shooting has gone from wildly speculative to almost non-existant, think hes had one effort on goal this season. Considering PES computer scored a screamer on me with exact same SA ST and SP 76, recently, I think that is enough to replicate the wonder strike :P .. hes actually scored more own goals, 3 in past 3 seasons, than against opposition lol.

He is weak/does not use contact well and can get pushed around easily. His aerial presence does not exist, his defensive heading is acceptable but only useful if ball comes to him and he is unchallenged. Otherwise clearances with feet he is good at, since his positioning is excellent - maybe best in MLS in pure smarts/experience of knowing where to be to minimize the angle, rarely needs to go to ground (but effective if needed).

Added *D-line Control, was only a couple matches he missed, but Atlanta looked so lost without him to control the backline.

Otherwise his main thing is being a technically proficient defender who can move the ball around the park really well, aids Atlanta's playing out of the back and possession style.
