Agree, DEF 80 will be optimal, also agree on your point about TW.

I play with 76, seems fair to replicate his style. Maybe 75, but this is a small difference.
Anders wrote:What you think that mentality does? Because I can't how you saw a difference in game between 77 and 75. Especially on an attitude term.
I was surprised myself, but it really makes difference! With more mentality, player does on challenge with opposite player harder effort to tackle the ball, even some illegal things (but mostly on the edge of what rules permit him). And this isn't Gum. With less mentality defender plays more softer, leaves to opposition player more air when he on challenge with him, doesn't press him too much. Maybe here is the secret why konami gives to some really strong (in terms of BAL) defenders mentality like 70+/-3. It makes them to use their bodies and almost nothing more (except, for sure, speed skills and def ability).
Same thing about offensive players. With more MENT they put more effort to keep the ball when defenders trying to pull them off. With less - give up more easily. I think it's a fair explication of the famous konami definition "how well player does under pressure".
