Roberto Bettega (born 27 December 1950 in Turin, Piedmont) is an Italian former footballer. Bettega was regarded as a player of noteworthy intelligence and at his prime was one of the most feared strikers . Bettega is mostly remembered for his time at his hometown club Juventus. He was nicknamed La penna bianca ("White Feather") for his appearance and technical skills. In December 2009 Bettega was officially appointed deputy director-general of Juventus. His role will be to act as an intermediate between the players and coaching staff and the upper echelons of the club, as well as taking an active involvement in all of the Old Lady's transfer dealings. Born in Turin, Bettega joined the Juventus' Primavera squad in 1961 as a midfielder. Bettega spent the 1968-69 campaign on the bench. At the age of 19 Bettega was loaned to the Varese F.C. in Serie B. Under Nils Liedholm, the coach of Varese, Bettega hit 13 goals to help the side finish top and gain promotion to Serie A. Nils Liedholm said of Bettega, "He allies tremendous athletic strength with impressive technical skills. He is particularly strong in the air, and can kick the ball with either foot. All he needs is to build up experience, and then he will certainly be a force to be reckoned with."

Back at Juventus, Bettega made his Serie A debut away to Catania on 27 September 1970. He scored the winning goal. Bettega ended the season with 13 goals in 28 matches. The following season, he scored 10 goals in only 14 matches. He scored a goal against Fiorentina on 16 January 1972, but this was to be his last for a while because he was forced out of the game with a lung infection and the initial stages of tuberculosis. However, he wasn't out for long, returning on 24 September of the same year. He led the team to their second successive league title that season. With the arrival of Giovanni Trapattoni in 1976 as coach, Bettega found himself becoming the main frontman of the bianconeri; the former player to take this position, Pietro Anastasi, moved to Internazionale in the summer of that year. In 1975, Bettega got his first call-up to the Italian national team for a match against Finland. He went on to play in the 1978 FIFA World Cup. He would surely have led the team into the 1982 tournament, but that dream came to an end when Bettega suffered knee ligament damage in a collision with an opposing goalkeeper during a 1981 European Cup match against Anderlecht. Missing out on the '82 tournament was even more painful for Bettega, since Italy won the tournament that year. Bettega finally regained full fitness and took to the pitch for the 1982-83 season. He retired from playing in Europe after Juventus lost the 1983 European Cup Final against Hamburg in Athens. Bettega played two summers in the NASL with the Toronto Blizzard, helping the team finish runner-ups both seasons. In total, Bettega made 326 league appearances for Juventus and scored 129 goals and enjoyed a highly successful career, winning seven league titles between 1972 and 1982, the 1977 UEFA Cup and two Coppa Italia. He also won the Capocannoniere (Serie A top scorer) in the 1979-80 season. He played 42 times for Italy, scoring 19 goals.

Considered a modern striker for his period, Bettega was a great finalizer but also a leader, a player who could score and create chances for his teammates. Good with both feet, gifted with an athletic physique, strength, individual technique and tactical intelligence. He was an able header and one of the most complete attackers Italy ever had, thanks also to determination and professionalism. Thanks to his tactical versatility, he could play in all attacking positions and in his late career he also played as attacking midfielder. His headings were mostly on diving, his shots especially with the right foot had a unique trajectory. He was an opportunist but at the same time not a cold striker who always looked for the ball. Moreover he never played for himself: he could take the ball in the midfield, start his run, dribbling a few opponents and, ready to score, he often preferred sending a pass to a teammate better positioned than him. He looked for scoring opportunities using every zone of the field, horizontal, vertical. Probably never a pure goleador in the true meaning of the term, despite his 179 goals with Juventus, he then became a team leader and then a playmaker. Short documentary about him 130 goals in Serie A - Part 1 130 goals in Serie A - Part 2 130 goals in Serie A - Part 3

I saw only a few jumps worth of an orange value. I don't know if these are enough for a 90 but in case they are not I would go for an 88 in JUM. FKA and CUR seem too high for me.
I would go for high 60s FKA and low green for CUR. Basing on the descriptions, I would raise TW to 85.
