Yep I've made another 'sweeper-keeper' a truly amazing character Gatti would often move forward an act as a defender he was comfortable controlling the ball his chest,feet and even his head he also made some very good headed passes however Gatti would foten make stupid mistakes.goalkeeper the saves with his feet where also quite phenomenal. Suprisingly he wasn't really your typical 'samba' goalkeeper he relied on his positioning more than his great reflexes he also went in strong for one-on-one's and came out to collect most crosses but perhaops his best quality was saving penalties.26 of them he saved throught his entire career.
Age: 32-38 (19/08/1944) Era: 1976-1982 Undoubtedly, his best time in Boca.
Foot: R Side: B
Height: 182 cm Weight: 81 kg
Attack: 52 -> 40 Compared to Quiroga (48) and Nkono (40). The Loco Gatti deserves to be higher (including juice from a game like MF (view movies) and one as FW) Quiroga 48, N'Kono 40.
Defence: 86 --> 90 Balance: 83--> 86 There was strong of body, was very thin indeed what made him weak to shock.
Stamina: 69 --> 75 Standard value.
Top Speed: 75 <- 78 Acceleration: 76 <- 77 For the 1-1 and very quick to anticipate the play. I think the old values would overestimate their speed against other jguadores.
Response: 88 <- 85 Agility: 86 <- 79 His saves were based on their agility and responsiveness. -2 Points unless N'Kono agility is perfect.
Dribble Accuracy: 75 <- 78 Dribble Speed: 72 <- 77 Good dribbling and something extraordinary for his job. But not Higher Than a field player to enter the green zone.
Short Pass Accuracy: 73 <- 76 Short Pass Speed: 74 <- 77 Similar Case Dribble.
Long Pass Accuracy: 75 <- 71 Long Pass Speed: 76 <- 74 He had a glove on your foot. As few others drew much precision from porter.
Shot Accuracy: 52 <- 63 I get a little higher than the standard 44. But not so excessive.
Shot Power: 81 <- 84 I did not have a strong shot, if a lot of precision on their serves but not much power.
Shot Technique: 52 <- 62 I get a little higher than the Standard 44. But not so excessive.
Free Kick Accuracy: 45 <- 53 Standard value.
Curling: 65 Standard value.
Header: 59 <- 75 I do not understand to be that value. Never was characterized for head (!).
Jump: 88 <- 84 The jump to 88 is fine for your categoria. 84 GK is too small and would benefit from their share of refeljos.
Technique: 75 <- 80 Deserves its place in the green zone, as a large bow. I think the yellow zone or to Higuita is.
Aggression: 76 <- 79 Case similar to the technique.
Mentality: 91 <- 90 His mentality is something huge for Gatti. Always consider the best and not just followed a line of GK crazy, but the deepened and re estate.
Keeper Skills: 86 <- 84 espite his style, was an excellent GK and grab balls. It was very common to see cross with one hand picking.
Team Work: 82 <- 78. Obviously to play as the play I need a good communication with their peers.
Injury Tolerance: B Condition/Fitness: 8 <- 6 (He is the player with the most appearances in history Primera Division Argentina) Weak Foot Accuracy: 5 <- 7 (Using your bad foot was normal, I think these values greatly exaggerated.) Weak Foot frequency: 5 <- 8

Added to the DB. This set is really dubious and full of old standards. It's true he's a legend and one of most recognized argentinian keepers in the history, but I don't think he was this good, specially as a pure keeper. Yeah he was a showman, he almost invented that about being a crazy keeper, going out, dribbling and making such technical things all around but he was also known as a keeper with great response and mentality at the same time known because of his fails lots of times. I mean, this set must put him like top five all around keepers in the database judging the whole set, you can do whatever you want with him in game.
Not saying he wasn't good, but probably he wasn't this all around good...It's a taste thing btw, I don't like this kind of crazy keepers and that's probably why Menotti and Bilardo chose Fillol and Pumpido, more "conservative" keepers than him, and I guess they were right winning two WC and losing the final in 90's.
Any input in here to correct this set is more than valuable.
Wow, this set is supposed to represent he 81-2 season? He was done by then, old, unagile and injured.
Fillol was an easy choice over Gatti, Fillol is the greatest argentine keeper of all time, the mistake was not calling Gatti or anyone of Boca that year when they won the Copa Libertadores for the second time in a row,although gatti always been a bit of a cunt so I don't know how he'd react to be a second choice. In 1986 he was 42 and shit, he was half the keeper he was at the time.
He was more of a highly prolificent shotblocker, not a highflying catlike reflexes keeper, he knew how to waive and use his body and speed well, specially his legs. His showmanship it's what's makes him memorable around now, but that sort of makes people underappreciate how good he once was.
I rather just change his era to 1977/1978, two time Copa Libertadores Champion and his last very good years possibly after a meniscus injury in 1976.
Talking exclusively about his 77/78 years Current speed stats are all pretty overrated, agi looks around low green during this time, since age and the previously mentioned long term injury already started to take a toll on him. He wasn't that fast either, his ACC was his best assest though, quick feets to cut angles on shots and the old anticipation outside the box.
Technically looks a bit overrated his short passes and DA, way above the average short passer for keepers but no way he's worth better passing stats than many outside players, high 60's/low70's at most for both spa/sps. His dribbling was pretty sloppy in general, his confidence on the ball was definitely great and the rule that he could grab the ball after dribbling sort of helped him a lot, specially to act like an ass to opponents, but his control wasn't above an average cb.
This shooting stats are all pretty fucking high, no need to have him above any other keeper in sa/st/pk, he never scored a goal or kicked a penalty in his career. He could put some interesting swerve on some long passes but that's about it for his shooting sklls. Heading also needs standarization, I don't know where this value came from too, he just used it more than an average keeper because he needed to when he was outside the box.
His first touch was GREAT for a goalkeeper, really, 80 is a bit too high but he's worth to be a cut above most of the keepers, low/mid greens is quite high enough for him.
I feel like the only 2 stats that need a raise are RES and TW. He was a real leader defensively and could cover his team and order the backline with his leadership and save their asses with his sweeper-keeper style. But his ability to keep everyone on check on that backline was great, worth of an 82/2 value. And his RES was pretty damn good, he had very quick reflexes but wasn't super flashy, only very reactive on close range shots. His main skill was probably his shotblocking and the ability to save point blank shots. I was also thinking on lower jump before but I change my mind about it, he still had some good leap on him and for a guy his size he was pretty dominant on crosses, mostly cause of his insane confident to collect them.
To summarize the changes:
TS 71 ACC 76 RES 89 AGI 75 DA 70 SPA 68/9 SPS 71 SA 44 ST 44 FKA 44 HEAD 60 TECH 76/77 TW 82/3
He really needs injury tolerance suited in A? Seeing comps and looking on internet he had a good amount of little injuries through his career, wasnt consistent there, showing how fragile was his body. Regarding his defensive ability I never saw him sooo impressive and determinant in the line stopping balls, obviously he was above average gk but not that exceptional as the people thinks, he is mostly on the mind of the media because was extremely overconfident. Again i dont trying to say he was bad, just a slighly low value could be, definitely his response must be his key attribute. Probably 5 in form could be an option too? Not really sure in this one.
btw dwfprowess must be around 55ish and his bw in 50.
