INFO:

Hristo Stoichkov is widely considered as the greatest Bulgarian footballer of all-time. Stoichkov played as a Wing forward who was known for his explosive acceleration, speed dribbling and for taking unpredictable shots on goal. He was also notable at taking free kicks and penalties as well as being among the best crossers in the world at his prime and also able to perform in the withdrawn creative role. He gained much popularity because of his aggressive temper on the pitch, he could often be seen arguing with the referee. Stoichkov was the major force that carried Bulgaria to won fourth place in FIFA world cup 1994. As part of Johan Cruyff's 'Dream Team', Stoichkov helped Barcelona to the most successful era of the club. During his stay in Barcelona, he had become an idol for the club's fans, and was Barça's most popular player at the time, having earned a place in the supporters' hearts.

In November 2003, to celebrate UEFA's Jubilee, he was selected as the Golden Player of Bulgaria by the Bulgarian Football Union as their most outstanding player of the past 50 years

Stoichkov played as a left attacker/winger. He was known for his explosive acceleration and speed dribbling, and for taking unpredictable shots on goal. He was also notable at taking free kicks and penalties as well as being among the best crossers in the world at his prime.

Yes, he had such a nice cross. Touch with class, but still with great power when needed. His crossing was very good indeed.

Values like 90/91 for LPA/LPS could slowly getting room for existence, no?

Well I think he could take charges to claim his present value. He was never, but never realy, the weakling type.

Also he a splendid burst from where he would gain his position to deliver his rocket style kicks.

Updating the threads and after that hurricane of bad postings yesterday...

Can we discuss/update his LPA/LPS now?

LPA 87, LPS 92? Or more? Maybe comparing him to Laudrup and Guardiola, see who took the CK in those days, and let Barça fans compare him to players like Rivaldo, Deco and Ronaldinho ...

I saw recently some tapes from WC94 where Bulgaria has a splendid participation.

And let me say that Hristo as this peek was delivering some nice long passes, full of itention and accuracy.

But I think is a good idea to let Barca fans come and discuss it. Fair enough

I'd just like to know if he was delivering deep long balls like Koeman or if he was just an excelent crosser ?

He tried to put technique on it.

Some plays I saw he wasn't even crossing, he was doing long passes Platini style.

One mod to give his opinion on the numbers and on the course of action to rate this player.

Well, we are only aiming at long passes here.

I don't think he needs a big update on LPA, maybe +1 point (he is currently on the same level as Savicevic, Predrag Djordjevic, Zola, Mendieta; R. Koeman is on 88; Dragan Stojkovic is on 85, and he knew to send excellent crosses or pinpoint passes). Maybe his LPS should go up (but I'm not 100% sure that he deserves orange numbers, but if people agree I'll have no objections). Bare in mind he was more goal oriented, so he didn't assist as much as Djordjevic, for example (I'm not saying he was bad passer, just he did it less then passing oriented players who are currently on the similar level).

Suggestions for Cards:

P05 – Trickster
P12 – Incisive Run
P13 – Long Ranger
S01 – Reaction
S03 – 1-on-1 Finish
S04 – PK Taker
S05 – 1-touch play
S06 – Outside Curve
S14 – Quick Turn
S20 – Scooping

The long passes don't need to go to orange, but can still be updated in a more optimist approach.

I like the cards you suggest, one question, his average goal ratio at his peek was 0.6 per game. Can he claim *scoring based on this?
He played the *CF role quite often (speciall in Barcelona, in Bulgaria NT he was playing more the *SS role).

Still I am not used to the new cards with full knowledge, so I will go mainly with what you guys suggest.
