    Default Eccentricity for defenders

    I've been wondering whether defenders (well, all players) should have an attribute like the GK's eccentricity. There are some defenders who just like taking more risks, and give up the ball in compromising positions (yes Ramos, I'm looking at you). Even though their "attributes" are good, they are always a liability in defence. Maybe this is already covered in the decisions attribute?

    What do you think about it?

    Creativity, dribbling and flair would give some indication as to their ability to do something risky e.g. trick their way out of a situation, but not how often they do it. I think it's a decent idea

    Exactly. Maybe it is a combination of teamwork, decisions and flair that determines risk taking in the game...

    Very true, I wonder if ther eis a hidden attribute which covers this. Not that I can remember. Either way, it's something we, as managers, should be able to see, especially since we can see a GK's attribtue.

    Fair point... just stay away from Titus Bramble and all is solved.

    I'd also say that this is covered by decisions, team-work and concentration

    In my books many people underesitimate the importance of some mental attributes for DCs.

    The combination of being carp and having "likes to play his way out of trouble" is eccentric
