There's no doubt he's faster than this, but I'm still not sure how
I think it's the sight of him pumping his funny little legs that confuses me
I used to think he was more of a Acc>TS sort of player, but I've pretty much changed my mind over this. I'm thinking something along the lines of 87
for Top Speed, leaving his Acceleration as is. I would like other opinions for this though considering my confusion over his speed atm.
He's not overly agile for his height but maybe a slight one or two point raise could
Dribble Speed is the main area he needs a raise in. He's not too worried about his control, prefering more of a punt and run method. I won't complain though, with his pace he's quite effective at it. I was thinking this could sit at a similar value to what I suggested for Top Speed. So Dribble Speed: 88
Looking at values for his crossing I don't really mind what he sits on currently, but I do remember wanting a raise for him when I was watching Everton more at the start of the season.
For shooting he's really not the greatest at it, but I do think his accuracy is better than his technque. I think SA: 70/71 and ST: 67/68 could do the trick here.
Header is one thing that needs a boost. He's scored a few headers this season, albeight it free ones, but they have shown some decent accuracy. I haven't really noticed much of a leap from him though. He usually doesn't even bother jumping when heading. Header: 76
Mentality does need quite a substantial boost as well. He really does try his heart out, the lad, and provides a lot of help for Cap'n Phil on the right, with his pace and hassling. I think the value that Stu initially had him on in his set would do. Mentality: 81
I'd give him *Side too. It tends to control on-the-ball, rather than off-the-ball movement and Coleman has a pretty frequent tendency to attempt to beat his marker for pace by dribbling outside of him.
Teamwork is another stat that probably needs more discussion too. Even with *Dribbling and *Tactical Dribbling he tends to look to pass the ball off rather than go for it himself. I'm pretty sure this due to his low value for DA. I've tested him in game with the Irish NT and someone like Paul Green, with a higher value for TW, but higher dribbling stats, tends to hold on to the ball longer. Lowering his TW might help compensate for this.
How's that Paddy?
