Pictures from 4thgame.com!! Also his shooting stats look very high for a Championship full-back. Especially one who hasn't scored this year.

He came to Wolves as a striker predominantly. However, injuries to George Elokobi meant he filled in at LB and succeeded. I feel his defence could go up a bit.

But that doesn't mean he deserves high shooting stats, he is rated far too close to Jay Rodriguez in terms of shooting, imo.

Okay now three comments to get through.

@Deity: He is primarily a striker but, is so versatile its hard to put a main position down for him. At the end of last season he was a SM and I'll put that as his main position. Matt Hill took his LB slot I believe.

@Vandeach: Get me the pic and I'll change it... He hasn't scored because he's been playing as a SB for most of the season. I didn't want to rate his Shooting too low as he can do a job up front too. Also, Jay Rodriguez really isn't great at shooting.

@Softy: I don't think he's incredibly solid positionally in defense, other attributes make up for him being able to succeed there.

I've already changed the pic, when posting Prem players use pictures from 4thegame.com. Also Jay Rodriguez is actually fairly cool in front of goal, he just hasn't had a huge amount of time to prove himself, I'm certain he's better than Ward overall in shooting, also you can't say that he hasn't had the chance to score when you've given him fairly high attack and a very high aggression, he should probably have around a 71 in SA and maybe a 72 in ST.

Hmm but yeah I'm just saying it looks stupidly high for a Championship left-back with a high attack a high aggression and no goals to his name. He hasn't exactly been profilic as a striker either, has he? I'm not overly familiar with him, but I'm pretty sure they need to be lowered, he hasn't played as an out and out striker for a while now. Also are you suggesting we give Sol Campbell a 70 for SA because he started out as a striker?

There's a difference with starting as a striker and being a striker shaun, and you know that. He scored 1 in 3 or 4 when at Bohs, not prolific, but better than Heskey.

I know but he got roughly one in four in the Irish league! I don't need to tell what a poor quality league that is and still managed a poor strike rate in that league!

But it is poor though, you have to admit. I'm still standing by SA: 71 ST:72 ;).

Wait 'til the season passes by, then propose values. After a few games you'll see he's a pretty decent shooter.

But my values suggest he is a decent shooter for a full-back. Its really not a unfair suggestion, he was pretty crap at finishing even as a striker.

He's not a full-back. He's capable at playing there, but its not his primary position.

Maybe we should have a rethink about some of his positions. He's played in a number of different positions this season with varying degrees of success (SS, even CM), and maybe we could even rethink his registered position too (I think he's played LM just once this season against Everton)..
