I have only started looking up matches for Napoli from this season (as they warrant attention like Leicester), but even just watching the match vs Carpi I was looking at the stats here and the player I was watching seemed better all around. I've gone through the thread and some of this has been brought up, like mentioned in the article linked by CHarper;

"Like Leo Bonucci at Juventus, Koulibaly is also building a reputation for pin-point passing from distance. Follow Napoli closely and you'll be familiar with his searching balls to Insigne out on the left, pulling opposition full-backs out of position, leaving their centre-backs exposed to a one v one. His assist for Callejon against FC Midtjylland was also really quite something."

His touch and control does not seem as bad as first post. He seems to go up on every set-piece and hang about trying to get involved to make something (layoff/cross)- his Stamina is surely one of the best for a CB, he exerts so much energy going back and forth - he is more of a midfielder or fullback in this respect rather than a typical CB. Albiol is more the marker and the anchor, Koulibaly instead launches himself from defense at the ball in an attempt to win it, amusingly proactive defending..if a bit reckless.

That pace though..he could be a touch more at 90, he covered half the pitch in 6 seconds, the vid that people posted jizzing themselves on Coman he took ~7 seconds to do the same distance (similar to what Salah did vs Fiorentina this season)[I counted from halfway line to approx. edge of 18-yard box]. Koulibaly really has a set of afterburners on him..this reminds me of a post that got deleted a few days ago in the EPL section with some borderline racist stereotyping, the poster's wording there could have been construed as inflammatory (I personally found it hilarious from an academic/PC point of view) but Koulibaly seems to fit what that dude was trying to articulate.

My suggestions are not really concrete as I want to watch way more of Napoli to get a sense of these guys. But I do feel with what little I have seen and due to general opinion this guy might need some updating/boosts in a few areas.

I really don't get the TS decrease, he should be on the same range or even above Boateng/Mathieu/Marquinhos/Okore/Smalling and others.

Because it isn't realistic it for him to have. When hes going side to side, trying to catch up with people being caught on the counter, he just does not absolutely everyone in speed, he struggles to even match some attackers in speed, let alone shit all over them. The sort of speed you'll see him reaching when actually defending, is around 83. Yeah if hes free with no pressure and running 60 yards he starts to hit insane speeds, but he doesn't have that when defending.

KALIDOU KOULIBALY | Napoli | Skills | 2015/2016

he deserves a value higher than 83, maybe not 88 for the reasons you explained but is more than 83.
he reached with great speed his rivals, very good tackler, perhaps deserves the star marking imo

you see what you describe in varane or boateng?
he's catching up guys quickly so he deserve a higher value as i explained. Maybe i just get you wrong but what other kind of speed "when defending" you know, when its not about catching up?

Hes not an 88 TS when defending, he can only get anywhere close to that after 50 yards with no one on him. Understand?

the maximum speed is measured running without the ball, no matter if defending or attacking?
he obviously does not use 100% full speed when he is marking (defending), for what?
however remains a low number for whatever shown in the season.

show me some examples of him using this 88 TS when defending then please. I'm not against changing it back, but I havn't seen TS that high myself in that area.

for me it is greater than 83, if you ask me would say a value 85/86
the reality he does not use 100% of its maximum speed (being 88) to defend with 85 or 86 would be a more consistent value, 83 seems very little to reach the opposite and persecution

why high TW value Epsi? he is improved but still has problems in this, working as a repart i mean, he is a monster in 1 vs 1 and he pratically lives only on this. I see Response > Defence also, regards the stars i would have added only covering.

But he has a big big asset, his pace. He sometimes react badly, make a mistake in tactical way, open the space to the striker, but he's so damn fast and can recover it. I think he's faster than this.

i agree when he could showed his TS in long runs always had the sensation that he is near of the Varane's level. He shows the best of himself when the team can play with an high barycenter (mostly home games), the mix of balance+speed makes him almost unbeatable in the lone duels with the striker.

i continue to see him with low TW and not a good marker... monster in 1 on 1 when he has to recover, but in working with the line and to mark the opponent he is mediocre imho
