Georgios Efrem

Spoiler: show
Georgios Efrem is a Cypriot International Attacking-Midfielder who plays mainly as a Winger. He is well-known as a tricky Winger with great ball-striking ability, who like to cut-inside from wide areas, despite the fact that he isn’t a very quick player for that position.
Efrem started his career as a youngster playing in the academy of his local club, Apollon Limassol, and in 2004 he joined the Arsenal FC academy, after a successful trial.
Even though he quickly became a regular for the Arsenal's Reserve team, Arsene Wenger was forced to release him because he felt that he had already too many attacking players in his squad.
After leaving Arsenal, Efrem moved to Scotland and he had short spells with Glasgow Rangers in 2007-08 and Dundee in 2009,
In the Summer of 2009, Efrem returned to Cyprus signing a long-term contract with AC Omonoia Nicosia, impressing everybody in his home country immediately.
Georgios was named "Young player of the Season" by the Cyprus FA in his first season and he won a Championship and two Cups during his time at Omonoia.
Despite being given the captain's armband at Omonoia for the 2013-14 Season, he refused to renew his contract there, seeking a move abroad.
Finally, after years of speculation, he made a highly controversial move to arch rivals, APOEL NIcosia, signing a three-year contract.
Efrem didn’t impress from day one at APOEL, struggling again with injuries and form, but later he proved that he is still a quality player, and in his second season there he regained the form that he showed in his early Omonoia days, becoming a crucial player for the team, and for the National team as well, becoming the first ever Cypriot player to score a hattrick in an official match for the National Team, with a hattrick that he scored against Andorra.

Maybe mazing run instead of free roaming and SP 81?
I'm not sure about Long Ranger,I'll leave that decision to the guys who watch him regularly.

One thing about the description, "Efrem began his career as a 13-year old with Arsenal in 2004."
He was born in 1989 so surely that should be 14 or 15?

It is possible that he went to England in trials right before he turned 14. Maybe.. i'm not so sure!!!

EDIT: In wikipedia(it had him as a 13 year old, now as 15) :? and in the official website of A.C. Omonoia is says that he was 13!! http://www.omonoia.com.cy/el/tmhmata/podosfairo/roster?select-player=26 anyway i updated him as a 14 years old ;)

Efrem had a real purple patch at the back end of 2009 and displayed all his qualities to suggest he is too good for the 1. Division in Cyprus. He has reminded close observers of his career of his main qualities, Efrem is a fast intelligent player who can score as well as create. So far in 2009/2010, Efrem has scored seven goals and provided seven assists in 27 appearances in the Cypriot top flight. He is also relatively strong for his diminutive size and is also a set-piece taker which has also been valuable for Omonia. His versatility is also a major boost for coach Takis Lemonis. Predominantly a right-sided attacking midfielder Efrem is two-footed and can play through the middle and on the left. Efrem has good positioning and his goals often come from wide positions where he has drifted inside without the opposition taking notice. He is a fine playmaker who can beat players with his technical ability. The Cypriot international is not selfish and likes to include his team mates where at all possible. Efrem will often cut inside and look to play an Omonia player in on goal with a cute through ball. The 20-year-old also has extensive international experience. He was called up for the Cyprus National Team in March 2009 but a minor injury forced him out of the team. In September 2009 he made his first two appearances for the Cyprus first team squad. He also captained the Cyprus U-21 team. Efrem’s slight stature and his largely failed experience in Europe point to a player that may only be able to perform well in Cyprus. In addition he also needs to improve defensively. But, his time at Arsenal and Rangers could turn out to be a crucial spell in his career. Another season or two of success at Omonia and Efrem will have outgrown the Cypriot league. With his experience of playing abroad and a growing number of international caps, he could well be a success in Europe in the future.

Efrem is one of the 78 biggest talents in the world article in Greek :roll:
world soccer magazine wrote:Cultured right-winger who, after stints at the Arsenal academy and in Scotland with Rangers, returned to his native land at the start of last season to play for Omonia Nicosia. Beating his full-back is the easy part for the 21-year-old, though his crossing is not always 100%.

Changes i would do are, lower defence to 40, and decrease the rest of the stats by 2 points, top speed and stamina should be high greens, tenacity at low 70's and teamwork mid greens at most, wfa needs -1 and form -2, also needs outside card.

Defence can be 41-42.
Top Speed should be 81-82.
Agree with stamina, it should by 77-78.
Teancity can be 75.
Teamwork can be even lower, like 73-75.
Agree also with outsider card and WFA and Form.

SPA& SPS: 77& 76
Swerve is an 80 for me.
Response I think should be 75-76.

Updated, what about the rest of the set, like DA, LPA/LPS, TEC, AGI, DS, etc.. I'm sure that he doesn't deserve such high values when comparing him with other players from different leagues.

DA I think is OK at 82.
LPS can fall by 1, to become 77.
Explosive Power is a 85 IMO.
DS I think it is OK at 85, but I wouldn't mind if it was a bit lower, like 84.
Ball Control maybe can fall by 1-2, to become 82-83.

Okay, what about kicking power? I'm not feeling comfortable with 83, he's about 81 at most, his shots are powerful and on target when he has the space and a complete mishit when pressured which results to bad shot connection and eventually a sky high shot in the row z. As for cards i think he should have long ranger and maybe a couple of trick cards as well, on top of my head i can think of scissors skills and/or deft touch skills, i'm also considering flicking skills and step on skills, BUT i want to hear other opinions as he doesn't do all of these tricks constantly.

I agree with a 2 point fall for Kicking power.
I am not sure about the Long Ranger card.
Also, I agree with tricky cards. I was watching the Cyprus- Northern Ireland game on Manchester United TV and the commentators commented frequently that he is a very tricky player.

The speculation about his future brought me to his topic. Interesting enough, Udinese scout who came to watch him said that his long-term future is in the AMF position and not on the wings and that's probably one of the main areas about deciding where to sign, because I guess wherever he signs for after a couple of years he will look again for opportunities abroad, to a team like Udinese, so I guess he would be looking for a team which is willing to try him at a central position.

About his set a couple of changes can be made like:
Attack: 76(-1)
Ball Control: 83(-1)
Dribble Accuracy: 83(+1)
Explosive Power: 84(-4)
Tenacity: 73(-2)
Acceleration: 84(-1)
Shot Technique: 77(+3)
Aggression: 83(-2)

His Registered position should be changed to SMF as he is more of a wide-midfield player rather than a Winger.
WF should remain as a Secondary Position.
