I understand how difficult must be to creat a set but in this case the stats are not showing what is really James' in real game. There are several points of view that can generate debates but there are some values completely wrong.
First on the technical side I see a generous number for DA. Of course he is a skilled player and he can keep the ball next to his feet during the dribble but he doesn't need such higher number as 94. Also nearing the red zone and above various players in the ladder indicate to how much is misjudged, overpower. I see his DA close or equal to his the BC , which does not happen in this set because DA is even higher. Particularly I prefer DA 91 and 89 BC or even 90 in booth.
I like the value of the SPA , replicate very well his style and precision but needs to be below his LPA. The fact that LPA should be even higher , his aereal balls are very dangerous, much consistant , dangerous and accurate than his short passes. Something like 89-90 is quite plausible to replicate his capability without overpower him.
The kicking values are very low , always impressed me more than his dribbles or passes . ST is absurdly low , certainly is the best element in the composition of his kicks. Comparing him with Kroos and Yaya Toure , I haven't seen him so far from them in terms of precision , he has a very good accuracy in his shoots. The combination 82 SA + 84-85 SP + 84-85 ST can replicate very well how dangerous and diverse he is on that atributtd.
PK + SW should also be higher but do not know an exact value and even a good balance that can convey this in the game.
I see him little better in areal game , but isn't a real essence of his game so doesn't need a much bigger increase.
EP , TS , ACC , DS , BB are absurdly high. He doesn't uses the explosion , speed, or strength on the essence of his game. He is a technical player but not this good physically . Why he needs this high numbes if he isn' so explosive, fast , agile or strong? The idea of being complete player is good but the execution (the numbers ) is fucking generous . Try something like 79 TS + 79 ACC + 82 DS + 79 BB + 83 EP and see how much more like James Rodrigues in real life. Still decently fast, strong and agile but not overrrated. With these actual number he can drible every player , um every situation. Of course that isn't the case.
76 in TEN ? He doesn't showing this for a long time , he is very lazy ... fucking lazy , really annoying. White zone for sure. On the other hand think that the STA may be a little better (83).
This balance was very good to demonstrate that he has energy to move around and participate in offensive transitions and even defensive of Madrid. Anyway without some tenacity , disappearing several times and hiding in adverse moments.
Form needs to be reduced , has no consistency.
- Spoiler: show
- DA : 90-91
BC : 89-90
