I would like to know does height make a difference to the arial ability of a player or is it just their jumping attribute + heading.

eg. Would someone 8 feet tall with a jumping attribute of 1 have a better chance of reaching a ball than a 3 foot player with a jumping attribute of 20?

they are inherently linked, a players jumping stat is based off their height

Cahill from Everton has a great jumping ability and is under 6ft, I also find players about 6ft and Chamakh from Arsenal has a low jumping for his height in my opinion so I don't think it's strictly linked.

But does height affect if they can reach a high ball or is jumping needed?

It was just to make my point more understandable. If you want it realistic take Cahill and Chamakh. Cahill is superior in jumping compared to Chamakh but still lacks the raw height. Who would win in a 1 on 1 challenge for a high ball?

they are completely linked, that is in fact how the jumping figure is worked out

cahill wins headers because of his other attributes, both in game and in real life

Isn't it that jumping attribute determines how high a player can jump (irrelevant to actual height), but height comes into play in determining whether a player needs to jump in the first place?

I just wanted to know if height affected it significantly. I suppose it does though.

Alright, thanks. You've answered my question.

Zigic's Jumping is 20 but in real life we all know he cant jump hes just tall , so im guessing the taller you are the greater your jumping on FM
