Lev Yashin | 1957-1964

Postby PES Stats Database » 2008 Dec 10, 17:20

Nickname: "Black Spider"

Club: Dinamo Moscow



Growth type: Late/Lasting


INFO:

Spoiler: show
Lev Yashin is regarded by many as the greatest keeper of all time, certainly when it comes to keeping out Penalties, possessing quite easily the finest reflexes ever seen in a goalkeeper and also a level of athleticism never before, or ever since seen in a world class goalkeeper. Quite simply, Yashin was a cut above the rest, and probably still is.

However, Yashin had a slight weakness; corners. Although he could jump insanely high, Yashin was a little weak (I say a little because he was still pretty hard, but...) against bigger strikers, and also occasionally misjudged corners too; he conceded a particularly comical goal against Columbia: When the corner was taken, Yasin proceeded to dive out into a big crowd of players. Sadly for Yashin, the ball was nowhere near this crowd of players and simply floated into the net. Despite people thinking hewas past the post when this happened, he simply went and won the Ballon D'or, and is still the only goalie to have done so.

Yashin is said to have saved over 150 penalties in his career; it is confirmed that he saved at least 150, but the official figure is unknown. A Truly god-like keeper, and he still sets the standard today for althleticism, reading of the game, and of course loyalty too; he played for Dynamo Moscow all through his career.

Important Discussion:

Mr RVN,May 24 2008, 04:46 PM wrote:Your both right, his handling and positioning were amazing, to the point which I've underrated his positioning, so I've increased defence.

However, his handling is hard to explain. :lol: There's no doubt his handling was excellent, but he couldn't quite keep hold of those really big shots, he did have a tendancy to punch the difficult ones. It's very slight, but Schmikes and Kahn both tended to keep hold of even the more ferocious shots unless they could only get a finger to it, but Yashin did favour punching really difficult ones to get to, but also ones he could theoretically hold. Erm, hope that explains it. :unsure:

Yashin's amazing ability was his agility, positioning and reaction which is why he was so good at saving one on ones and penalties. His handling, although very good for his time, I don't think he would be anything above 95 if he was playing today with the lighter balls. He was head and shoulders above anybody else in his generation of footballers though.


Mr RVN Posted: Jun 7 2008, 02:16 PM wrote:Personally I don't think Yashin would have been quite as class if he was playing now as he was then, you have to remember that he was saving leather footballs that required more strength than great handling to keep hold of; there was little to no movement in the footballs, whereas keepers now spend a lot of time guessing whether or not the ball will dip or swerve right/left in the last seconds of the shot.

To be honest, I'd rate Buffon as equal to Yashin or maybe even slightly better; sure, Yashin is definetly the best keeper ever in terms of playing in his time, but Buffon I think, like Yashin, has all the components of great goalkeeping, and if they were both playing today I reckon Yashin and Buffon would be competing for the No.1 spot.

Yasin is a pioneer... football back then can't be really compared to what it is nowadays...

if I'm not off here he was also an NT keeper in other sports too
I'm against you

funny story (best penalty stopper vs best penalty taker)

Eusébio was known not only for his powerful shots, impossible speed... but also for his fair-play and respect for every player in the field, team-mate or not. Due to his shot, he rarely missed a penalty and almost never the GK actually deflected or caught the ball.

One of those times was against Yashin.

What was the reaction of Eusébio? Did he insult Yashin? Did he insult himself? Did he cry? No, Eusébio shook Yashin's hand for such a wonderful save.

The next time they face eachother in a penalty, Eusébio scores. This time what happens? Yashin congrats Eusébio for his unstoppable shot (Yashin guessed the direction). Eusébio didn't celebrate the goal in respect for the other team.

BTW, he actually was born in Mozambique, like myself.

Yashin was already partially updated to new format.

I've added Additional Links, Growth type and Attack/Defence Awareness Card.

I've made 2 changes.

1. Changed Era from 1957-1958 to 1957-1964,

2. Changed his Weight from 78 to 82 kg.

Listen to what he said one of the greatest goalkeepers of all time on the Banks defense all the time.
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lrjr3ZIxogA
Banks are locked posts because you are wrong, and afraid of the truth ...

Lev Yashin is overpriced players, I live in Croatia and many older people told me about him who saw it live and say that was the goalkeeper who had a lot of blunder, he has received goals and 30 meters. I think that the goalkeeper did not have a constant was the acrobat, and he knew it is impossible to defend but the most necessary for the goalkeeper was not sure and had a constant ..

All these assholes who pretend to know everything and have the right to manage all the players, and have no idea about anything ...

He was a good passer for a keeper. Isn't he? I think his passes values must be increased.

For me Yashin does not deserve DEF 98, because of his amazing reactions and RES 99 he was given 98, but I think that this figure was not for him ... a great acrobat, but he did not have security settings that deserves 98, at least for me.

I really think that if the 99GKS exists is for someone to use it

I cant think of any other player (classic or contmporary) that diserves this skill more

Now a days there is practicly no discussion of who was the best goalkeeper of all times (Lev Yashin)

I think his Growth Type should be changed from Standard/Lasting to Late/Lasting due to the fact that his peak era is so long (28-35 years old).

Maybe I can sound crazy to you, but I would swap his DEF, with his GKS, he could hold the ball in his hands even if the the guy who was shooting would be just 3 metres away.
His possitioning was great, but not as phenomenal as his Response and his GKS...
What do you think?

I am with AlboSoldier with just one little addition: I would put 99 in goalkeeping skills (yes, someone has to deserve it) and 96 - same as Zoff - in defence.

Updated with my set, just let his jump value on an 85 and his Res on a 99. Waiting for comments.

I did not see him play, because I'm too young, but everyone who saw say that he was a legend and at various sites say he was the best of all time. So I think it is a bit underrated.
Football is very simple: who has the ball attacks, who doesn't have defends.

i think 93 def is too underrated for the only goalkeeper to hold the Ballon d'Or award. at least up to 95
