Ferenc Puskás | 1952-1956

Postby PES Stats Database » 2008 Dec 10, 16:45

Nickname: "The Galloping Major"

Clubs: Budapest Honvéd (1952/1956) | Real Madrid (1958/1959)



Growth type: Standard/Lasting

INFO:

Spoiler: show
Overweight, stocky and didn't know he had a right foot. Puskas, despite his appearance, was possibly the greatest striker of all time! As a member of "The Magnificent Magyars" his international record is astonishing with 85 goals in 84 games, only Ali Daei of Iran has surpassed it! He had a rocket of a left foot, you just wonder where he was hiding that cannon! He had a brilliant first touch and was something of a trickster, in Stanley Matthews Testimonial he stood in the centre of the pitch doing keepie-uppies with his left foot. He could dribble past players and tore apart most teams, he famously demolished Germany 8-3! He was simply unmarkable and incredibly difficult to stop. He was a great leader and formed unbelievable partnerships with Di Stefano at club level, and Kosics on the international stage. It's a shame God picked him for his Heaven XI :( .

I think he should have a better Dribble Accuracy about 95 or 96. In my opinion his Short Pass Accuracy and Long Pass Accuarcy wasn't that bad :D

I disagree with such a raise in Dribble Accuracy, looking at the ladders I do not reckon Puskas to have had been that sort of a consumate dribbler, in the region of Baggio or Kubala, at 91 he is level with a modern Del Piero which I think is a good fit judging by what I seen of them both.

Short Passing yes could potentially use a slight raise to 78 +1 above Kocsis (who I do not think was better), not sure on Long Passing as I do not recall any at the moment. But do keep in mind that his Team Work is at a playmakers 90, so his understanding and vision will allow his limited passing range to be far more effective then what it may seem capable of. ;)

It is just my impression that Puskas deserves to have 99 Attack. Watching a few videos with him and looking at his statistic, I've come to that conclusion. What do you think about it?

Also (I forgot to add) that I found somewhere information that he's weight was 75 kg. Although, I can't track the source for this information.

97 is already an God-like value, with this value he's on par on Pelè

Don't get me wrong, I think that there are at least 3 players who deserve 99 Attack: Puskas, Gerd Muller and Arthur Friedenreich.

I didn't mention these two in my previous post because, I thought that we shouldn't talk about other players in Puskas thread ;) .

well, its the general agreement in this site that attack mostly defines a player's ability to position himself during an attack, mainly inside the box, wether to score a goal or receive a pass and so on. That's why Messi only has 84 in attack in the site when Konami gave him 95 (i believe). Following that logic, the only player that i think should get 99 is Gerd Muller, the master of positioning, known as the ultimate poacher in the history of the game. I think Puskas's attack is fine as it is

I have to agree with yourigo - Puskas is good at 97 -not sue why Messi has 84- Muller should be 99 though.

thanks Nightcaller it's good to challenge the stats :D

I think Messi only got 84 because he prefers to get the ball and dribble towards the area instead of being a poacher. That being said, i still feel 84 is a bit low for this season, he's become much more objective when attacking. But 84 does get the job done and i think he's very realistic in the game with the current stats. There's no point discussing this subject much, though, since the thred is locked for now, and won't be opened unless you have a really good reason and i don't think his attack stat is so wrong it must be changed.

hey, i don't know if you've been following the site for long before registering, but i'd advise you anyway to read through the atributes analysed and explained foruns and always check the ladders before doing a player, it always helps to get a new notion of the stats ;)

I know all that mate ;) . If I do some classic player, it will be according to this site attribute explanation. Don't worry about that.

It's just my opinion (by the videos I watched) that Puskas deserve 99 Attack, but it's all good. If everybody says he deserves 97, it's fine by me.

I think he should have a better Free Kick Accuracy about 88 or 90.

I've been playing these stats for a while now and they're really good, nice one. The one thing I would say is that he deserves higher agility. He was renowned for quick, tight turns and the speed of his body movements if not his body, and agility is the stat that emulates this. Where a player like Ian Rush (who is on 80) may some time to perform a movement, little pixellated Puskas should have the ability to twist and turn quite rapidly,as it's a large part of how he was able to be so successful. I'd suggest 86 or 87 at least, especially as this the 27 year old Puskas not the mid-thirties one.

yeah, he could use some more agility, he seemed quite fast and he's small, wich usually makes the players more agile. There's 4 other things for now:

Passing: I don't really know Puskas style besides all the goals i've seen wich clearly show imense technical ability, and it seems very odd to me when a player with DA 91/TEC 94 only has green values for pass accuracy. Usually strikers with high technique/dribble also have above average passing skills, like Baggio, Bergkamp, Raúl, etc.

Body Balance: this guy might have been imensly strong but i don't believe he deserves to be in the 90's above Weah, eusébio, Koeman, 6 points above Kubala, 9 above Mathaus. I think he would sit right with someone like matthaus or Kubala.

Shot Power: Imense really, but not as imense as Eusébio's imo.

Free Kicks: Don't know wich exact numbers, but i'm shure Puskas was an excelent freekick taker as well, so at least low yellows.

I agree on agility and passing. Both of those, especially SPA should probably be about 6 or 7 points higher.

Balance could probably be lower, around 90, 91.

His Shot Accuracy should probably be 99. The number of people that I know who think that there ever was a player with a higher shot accuracy than Puskas is very small. I would even dare to say it's 0.

Here are some quotes regarding his stats You might find interesting.

"I was with (Bobby) Charlton, (Denis) Law and Puskás, we were coaching in a football academy in Australia. The youngsters we were coaching did not respect him including making fun of his weight and age...We decided to let the guys challenge a coach to hit the crossbar 10 times in a row, obviously they picked the old fat one. Law asked the kids how many they thought the old fat coach would get out of ten. Most said less than five. Best said ten. The old fat coach stepped up and hit nine in a row. For the tenth shot he scooped the ball in the air, bounced it off both shoulders and his head, then flicked it over with his heel and cannoned the ball off the crossbar on the volley. They all stood in silence then one kid asked who he was, I replied, To you, his name is Mr. Puskás." – George Best

"Of all of us, he was the best. He had a seventh sense for soccer. If there were 1,000 solutions, he would pick the 1001st." – Nándor Hidegkuti

"Puskás scared the hell out of goalkeepers from the 30-35 metre range. He did not just have a powerful shot, but precision as well. I thought he was a genius." – Raymond Kopa

"He got along with everyone and had a very jovial character that helped him play with a striking amount of joy and calmness. He had a great shot and he could accelerate very quickly, ... all-around skilled and above all explosive." – Luis Suarez
"Those who dance are considered insane by those who can't hear the music." - George Carlin
