I think he can go up some points in shooting technique.

Thanks Uzair for this nice stats. :)

Nice work on finding proper Era picture Il Codino. :)

***

I would expand his Era to 1984-1986 and give him Condition: 7.

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Enzo_Franc ... statistics

***

Suggestions for Cards:

P05: Trickster
P07: Mazing Run
P12: Incisive Run (maybe)
S01: Reaction
S02: Passer
S03: 1-on-1 Finish
S04: PK Taker
S06: Outside Curve
S14: Quick Turn

***

Suggestions for Ability changes:

Header: 73>78-79 (definitely worth of green area),
Jump: 76>78-79,
Mentality: 70>72-73,

***

Also does he really needs *Playmaking (just asking because I can't recall any of his games where he acted as playmaker)? I remember some of his games that I found and watched... It seemed to me that he was more about passing, dribbling and off course scoring fantastic goals. Although, I must admit, he played more like a SS then an AMF in those games, so that might be the thing that confused me.


Any thoughts about these suggestions and about this player in general?

Yes, he did play more as an *SS, similar to Del Piero, Baggio like...

He knew how to pass, I am just not to sure if really deserves it. But probably did, I think he did a lot of assists as well.

Depends if he was playing for River or for Uruguay NT. In River, like Classical said was clearly an SS, but for Uruguay NT he played many games as the Playmaker of the team. Like his second era in River where he had a dual role, playing as SS-AMF switching with Ortega, Gallardo and others, always being the keystone of the team.

So my suggestion is to put * Playmaking as optional.

Also I'd suggest a few points up in agility being Burruchaga in 87 IMO they shold be on similar numbers.

Almost all of the greatest classic strikers, were also great passers. That doesn't seem right. :/

Yeah I was working a lot in him back 3 or 4 months but I don't remember where I recorded the set. Anyway I was making his later years which were my favourites in River winning Copa Libertadores 1996 in -imo- one of best Rivers ever. Your set is from 84'-86' right?

What about a late set for him? Riquelme type. Would be very useful for Libertadores winning team in 1996.

Added the later years set...i've worked for it lot of time then I left it there and now I post it. I think it's quite accurate, could use some tweaks in some numbers but it's basically replicated how genius he was and the way he changed his style to re-adapt to play in SouthAmerica and his role playing with a very young Ortega and a crazy cf as Crespo was in that amazing team. Any suggestion is welcome. I didn't touch his 1st set but probably his fka at that time wasn't that good (or at least he didn't show it that often i guess) like in his later years. I leave you his match in Copa Libertadores final...he played great

Everytime I go around and find a new vs match from him I'm more convinced he's one of the most underrated players ever, such a crazy talent really, refined technique, great dribbling, vision, almost no flops at his interventions, master class free kicker and leadership on the field.

This is Copa America 1995 final vs Brazil. He was surrounded by great players (Bengoechea, Fonseca, Otero, Gustavo Poyet, Dorta and "Manteca" Martínez. He was more a playmaker at NT as I said before (If i remember well) and in River he was a pure SS. I made some gifs:

Spoiler: show
Nice touch
Image

Two consecutive good jumps
Image

Typical Enzo move at his dribbling
Image

Easy
Image

He still had some pace, probably I went some low with TS tbh
Image

Great 1st touch and turn, fouled
Image

This could be viewed as a sloopy 1st touch, but imo considering the pace of the pass and he fall, he solved really well the situation
Image

Not the best FK, but nice swerve and decent placement in there
Image

I have to say I do love that quick stop
Image

Return to “80's”
