This seems to being going very well, thanks Iaan and Gabe!

New Note:

Please scroll through the OP below and look for the player you are wanting to ask about, it is more than likely that he has been done already!! thanks.

With the fantastic invention of Iaan's Calculator, Gabe asked if we could set up a thread that he will manage and tend to all of your player requests (sometimes the What role/duty suit my players thread does not get sufficient answers and precise ones)

Post a screenshot of the player you want Gabe to generate for you and it will end up becoming a benchmark for members to go through and see for themselves what the best role is for certain players. I will edit it and post all the Answers in the OP here so you can see for future reference...

as I said, this is similar to the What role/duty etc thread, but some of us are really lazy and would like things done for you instead of doing it yourselves...

Lucas Barrios: Poacher Attack (15.1) or Trequartista Attack (14.8)

P.S. Probably need better midfielder to supply the ball to him.

What about one of my favourite young players?
Axel Witsel: Attacking Midfielder Attack/Support (14.3) or Advanced Playmaker Attack (14.2)

P.S. The Axel Witsel on my save has slightly better attributes so I used mine to assure accuracy.

Michael Owen: Poacher Attack (14.8)
Kevin Phillips: Deep-Lying Forward Attack (15.4)

P.S. Not surprising to be honest. Both have passed their prime. Though they might be able to do well together given the right tactic, Poacher and DL Forward tend to mix together well.

One more. Thanks.
Ivelin Popov: Attacking Midfielder Attack (14.5) or Inside Forward Support (14.3)

P.S. The attributes you gave me are generally better than mine, even though some of mine are better. Hence, I used yours since its your save.

@Sw33z
Stevan Jovetic: Advanced Playmaker Attack (15.9)

P.S. Nicely developed after 4 years. Rating may be a bit off due to the attributes that he give me are well, developed stats.

@Sw33z

Matias Suarez: Midfield - Attacking Midfielder Attack (14.0) or Inside Forward Support (14.0)
Striker - Trequartista (13.4)

P.S. not sure how you are playing him because he's natural striker in my save.

Adam Rooney? hes only 23 :)
Adam Rooney: Target Man Attack (13.3)

P.S. If you are afraid due to the height he got problem with being target man, use as Poacher (12.9)
