Thread: What did prime Van Nistelrooy look like on FM?

  1. #1

    Default What did prime Van Nistelrooy look like on FM?

    This guy is probably the greatest striker I have ever seen play the game (I'm only 22).

    Does anyone remember what his stats looked like on FM?

    2 footed
    18+anticipation and composure
    17+off the ball
    20 Finishing
    20 first touch
    is what I'm guessing

    he must have been the perfect striker

    Check out Falcao, very similar to him.

    Looks about right. Although if he didn't get a 20 for off the ball, no one ever will. His movement was unbelievable.

    I don't ever remember him being that quick though or being a particularly decent dribbling ability. he just had an uncanny knack to ALWAYS be in the right place at the right time.

    And in response to the op (to take it completely off topic) I don't think he was anywhere near (fat) Ronaldo in his prime. That man was one of the greatest players ever, and i still think he could have done more. I'd also say as a striker Raul was probably as good in not better than RVN

    Well, that doesn't mean he was quick.

    FM06 had attributes higher than current FM games that's why those attributes are so high.

    That's true. Since Messi and Ronaldo came along, they've had to make a greater distance between those two and the rest. Beforehand you'd have 20-30 players who's CA's were above 180. Now it's only about 5.
