INFO:

Carlos Alberto Valderrama Palacio (born September 2, 1961) is a Colombian football (soccer) player.

Nicknamed "El Pibe", Valderrama is recognizable for his enormous blond bush of hair and is known for his skillful passing and shielding. Valderrama was born in Santa Marta and captained his national team during the 1990, 1994, and 1998 World Cups, before announcing his international retirement after the 1998 competition having received 94 caps and scored seven times.

Carlos Valderama is known as being one of South Americans greatest Midfielders of all time, Valderama made his debut for Colombia in 1985 in a match against Paraguay, however he soon became recognised as a quality midfielder and became the Captain of the team few years later.

He played for a Colombian first division club named Union Magdalena. He became very well known in Europe once he signed for top French side Montpellier in 1988. Valderama was an excellent footballer with electrifying pace and provides the perfect pass. He was Colombia’s biggest threat in Italia 90, where he scored an excellent goal in their 2-0 victory over UAE, and he created the goal which fellow Colombian team mate Rincon scored against West Germany, which was the equalizer that ensured Colombia went passed the group phase in the tournament. Despite a good performance against Cameroon, Colombia lost that match 2-1 and they were out of the tournament. He became a worldwide footballing icon thanks to his brilliant performances in Italia 90.

After the 1990 World cup, he went on too captain Colombia in the world cup in USA in 1994 and in France in 1998, however Colombia were disappointing on both occasions, failing to get past the group phase. He moved to America in 1996, where he played for Tampa Bay Mutiny and became an instant success in the MLS.

He began his career at Union Magdalena of Colombia's First Division in 1981. He also played for Millionarios and Deportivo Cali before joining Montpellier of French First Division in 1988. He was transferred to Real Valladolid in 1990 before returning to Colombia in 1992 to play for Deportivo Independiete Medellin and Atletico Juniors from 1993-96 before going to the US in 1998 to play for Miami (1998-99), Tampa Bay (2000-01) and currently Colorado. In the American Major League Soccer (MLS), Valderrama scores relatively few goals (8) for a midfielder, but has many assists (62).

On February 30 2004, Valderrama ended his 22-year career in a homage match with some of the most important football players of south america, such as Diego Maradona (he couldn't play but stayed in the tribune), Enzo Francescoli and José Luis Chilavert.

He nearly walked the entire game.... so STA has to be slower... i have it on 70... but it can be on 75 if you want him to keep him with color... but TS had to be more slower something like 71-73 will fit him

Yeah. He was very static, but he did running whenever he needs to chase the ball, and for most of time, South American League matches are rather slow in pacing. I think 74-76 is the best value for him.
For TS, when he runs, he's still reasonably fast whenever he chase a loose ball, so current value is still reasonable. Although we may lowered it to 73. Agility is the one that's vastly overrated. It should be on middle green value, at least.
Also, do you think he needs slightly higher SPS & LPS? He seems to put more weight in his passing than current value suggested, and compared to other players with similar passing speed, his passes look more powerful to me.

No pal.... Current passing speed is good enough :wink:

Physical stats are somehow too high for what i've seem from him.... I used Valderrama with this:


Bal: 85 (He was something like Riquelme in this aspect)

STA: 70 (it doesn't need explanation)

TS: 72 (same as STA)

DA: 91-92 (I think he deserve more... he often dribbled opponents without a problem)

DS: 74 ( HELL, This guy was too slow)

SA: 75 & ST: 77 (He scored some wonderful goals during those years)

Well, yeah. Maybe his SPA is give him better range than people with similar passing speed.
I agree he was very slow. But your STA suggestion seems too harsh. 70 made him sit around later year Socrates who was a heavy smoker and older than him. And from what i see, Valderrama definitely has better fitness in him. But i still think that 72 is acceptable since he really not run that much. Aside from that, i agree with all your suggestions.
Btw, we can't have him sit at 85 on agility when he's really that slow. I'm thinking about 74-75 for it.

Well, I don't remember suggesting anything yet on El Pibe :mrgreen:

PS: I have him on BB: 89, he was very strong on challenges and using his body as a shield on ball conservation.
STA, I have him at 78
On the other hand, TS: 68 (he walked), ACC: 72 , DS: 70 , AGI: 75
I have him on much higher ATT as well: 84

That's all I can say right now, haven't watched him for a while...

Platini also walked entire game but nobody is complaining there :roll:

BTW did you see and how often Pirlo sprinting....


I don't think this thread needs any changes, except of lower AGI...

Speed stats are fine just the topic era should be 1988-1990..
