don't incredibly limited strikers get high attack?
A striker is not an AMF. There is no comparison between how they play. Attacks value is position dependant and goals weight much higher than assists. Incredibly limited strikers like Icardi get high attack, because they are still incredibly dangerous, icardi who does next to nothing still managed to be top scorer in serie a last year. But look at his attack value to the prems top scorer last season, a much more complete striker who has multiple ways to hurt you.. hes a 95 because he is infinitely more dangerous. The more ways you have to hurt a team, the more dangerous you are. Suarez is a prime example, he can hurt you in a million ways, so his attack represents this.
Thats not to say if you only have one aspect to your game, you can't have an extremely high attack. But you have to be an absolute god in that regard, good example there would be Trezeguet.
Fabregas for instancey it doesn't really make sense he's lower in form, spa and level in attack when he completely outdoes him, and Cesc's game is just passing too.
Fabregas sets is still very influenced by his Barca times, and his game was so much more than passing, in fact passing was a failure on his part compared to the rest of the barca creators, but his offensive positioning was great and his shooting was quite deadly, that led to him being deployed as an SS, a player like that will naturally warrant a higher attack. Also, Fabregas like the whole of chelsea have been out of form, so a direct comparison to his current state isn't fair. But last season Cesc was great, 18 assists I think, so it makes sense that he still retains some of that value. But hes not lower in attack than Cesc, Cesc has 84 too. The form is a valid point and something that should probably change.
rom his passing alone he's ridiculously dangerous. chances created this season:
He really is not a ridiculously dangerous player though. He just isn't, the statistics are highly impressive, but they paint a different picture of him than the player whos on the pitch. You really have to be careful with statistics like that, because they can be very missleading. Much like this counts as an assit for Roberto Carlos https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BhYGtp26IRU
Ozil passing to some guy and him having a wild shot on goal counts as a chance created.
he's much more about the final ball than say Silva and less about build-up/moving around.
Silva is one of those extremely dynamic players that can hurt you in so many ways, hes not so much an amf as he is a ss/amf/smf even at times cmf hybrid. His movement alone creates so much, his dribbling makes him near unplayable, his link up and dummy runs on top of his passing, when his current value was assigned nearly everything he touched was gold. The type of player silva was when this value was assigned, compared to the type of player Ozil was dangerous wise... there is a significant gap between the two. Not even to mention that you're talking about a player whos been at such a great level for years and years and years, probably the best overall player in the prem in the last 4 years? And a guy whos hasnt even been performing consistently for 4 months.
