I don't have much confidence in the first post. I was fortunate enough to find a compilation of his missed opportunities and I have to say.... they're pretty bad. Feel free to watch
His shot power looks low. His finishing isn't this good, period. He seems more deserving of the *Penalties star and not the *1-on-1 Scoring star. I don't understand why his aggression and defence make him out to be a defensive player. He plays like the fox in the box/poacher role
His heading ability looks better. I mean, look at his diving headers and placement!
He also seems like a good link-up player and he seems stronger as well. Just like Guiza, he seems to have a good burst of pace behind the last defender. Definitely quicker in the first few meters. He may have scored 30 goals prior to his move to Turkey, but the defensive standards of the Colombian league look worse in comparison the TSL so I can't understand why he was rated so highly? If anything, his form/consistency should have been raised after his magical season, yet they haven't been touched at all. His finishing doesn't deserve to be on par with the likes of Lampard. That guy scores close to 30 goals a season and he's able to score against the most difficult teams in the world. It's easy to net 30 goals in a league full of average keepers and below average defenders. He made 15 appearances in total and didn't even score 1 goal
At the moment, I can't possibly rate him higher than Elmander for shot accuracy. I'm not going to post any figures up, but the first post seems difficult to understand. I can't understand why his mentality is on par with the likes of Amr Zaki. He seems more professional and less troubled than the Egyptian. Not choosing to defend is a natural thing for a striker. It doesn't make him lazy, just a striker. Response could also be dropped. Lets take Darren Bent as an example. Does he deserve to be on par with someone who scored 24 goals in the premiership? He may have scored 30 goals in the Colombian league, but that is a fairly unknown league. He's not a proven striker at a higher level and after his uninspiring first season with Trabzonspor, I can't say he deserves anything better. 82 is sufficient for response. His goals are often scored when the defence completely switch off. Here's a nice new in-action picture
EDIT: Fuck it! He's overrated....
My version looks alot more sensible for PSD standards. This guy is basically a Colombian version of Guiza, nothing more.

Feel free to ask anything
I want the first post to have some figures changed around.
