how to play this guy


Recommended Posts

Personally, I'd play him as either a Poacher or possibly an Advanced Forward. His mental stats, speed and excellent finishing point to him being a Poacher, but his good heading could also be utilised by playing him as a Advanced Forward. Poacher probably though.

That's a poacher yes, but train him as an Advanced Forward so that he picks up some passing skills and technique. How tall is he? Because with 12 in Jumping I suspect his good Heading attribute will be nice for diving headers and such but not to win challenges. If he is 185cm or taller, he might bump his Jumping to 14 or even 15 in time, which can come in handy, but he will never become a physical monster (too poor Aggression and Bravery) - just bloody quick.

An alternative to Advanced Forward Heavy training is to train Dribbling up to 15, then Technique and then Passing.

As most have said, either as an Advanced Forward or Poacher. I'd personally go with Advanced Forward but that's just a personal opinion.

He can be used defensively without compromising his attacking role to unsettle the opposition's passing at the back as he has good stamina and work rate as well as good off the ball movement and excellent acceleration and agility to get away from defenders quickly and into space after his team or himself has won the ball. However aggression is obviously a problem. This is where you might want to raise his closing down level and tackling level to try and encourage him into the game more. In games where you play with a high defensive block, you might wish to play someone as good as Dummy but with higher aggression and bravery.

In training you could focus on improving Dummy's dribbling and first touch. With these two improved he could play a lone forward role in the Suarez mould by being mobile in order to find space and using his dribbling skills and speed to run with the ball when isolated and get his team up the field that way, win a set piece and create his own space using skill and turns on the ball.

And there you are, Forward Roles For Dummies ( :D )
