Got thru a few matches tonight. i've never had a forward scoring like this kid. 7 goals in 4 league matches. 8.68 rating in those matches. 2 in 2 appearances in the cup, one as a sub.Edit - forgot to mention one of my forwards. So the side started with 4 forwards and no real wingers. But I wanted to play a 4-1-4-1, so 3 of the forwards got retrained to be wingers. One of those was whom I sold to Tigres for 4m. Of the newgen youngsters I grabbed at the start, there were 4 forwards. I have been retraining two into wingers and they look to be the future. But one of the 2 who stayed as a forward has been.... interesting. I didn't know what to expect - he had a skillset I liked, and good size (6'1") but his Finishing started fairly low. He had solid physicals and his both Teamwork and Workrate were reasonably high. He rotated in the 2nd season, with some starts. Ended up with something like 10 goals in 16 matches in the league and a pretty high rating (7.80ish). First match of the 2nd season and he got 2 goals and an 8.80. Its interesting because he doesn't look like a forward who should do the business. His Finishing is still only 10 and Composure is like 13. Off the Ball is about the same. But almost all his Physicals are around 15 and both TW and WR are 16. He works hard. And that works. He has had a few matches where he doesn't score and he gets like a 6.6 rating. But a goal and a 7.2 or better seem to be his norm. I wouldn't haven't picked him as my ideal solo striker but he looks like he could be a monster. Only 18 and still has room to improve.
