The Cobra was the legendary striker of both Vardar and Red Star, he gained national fame while playing for Vardar, and he touched stars with Red Star, scoring the most important penalty in club's history. He won Silver Ball in season 90/91 as one of the most lethal strikers in Europe. He's one of the best poachers in Yugoslav football history. His ability to find himself in the right place at the right time in penalty box is absolutely fantastic. Most of his goals were scored from 10 meters away from goal, at most. He was excellent header of the ball and every cross was a potential danger. Besides being a predator in the box, he was very good outside of the box too. With his good close control and speed, he was able to trick the opponent and pass the ball very well to his teammates. His low passes were pretty good for a poacher. Despite scoring huge amount of goals, he often needed a lot of chances to score one. He used to miss open chances which frustrated him and fans too. But then in the next game, he could only end up in a real chance once, and he would score. His volleys were a nightmare for all keepers. Despite his qualities, his complete international career was a flop. He couldn't cope with Italian defenders as easy as with Yugoslav and his career suffered downfall from the moment he signed for Inter. He won Golden Boot award in season 1990/91.

He could score directly from free kicks, he should have FK 75 at least. IMO he was faster than current values show, especially his ACC was better...

I don't think he deserves SP 85, also SA could be lower but ST higher. His goals from volleys were numerous and spectacular, I think 88-89 for SA with 94 for ST could be better solution. As for SP, I don't know about 85, rather 82...

"Tore sind mein Leben" - so lautet die Devise des jugoslawischen Stürmers Darko Pancev. Der dunkelhaarige Mazedonier mit dem ausgeprägten Selbstbewußtsein sagt nicht gerade bescheiden über sich, er könne zwar nicht dribbeln und nicht passen, sei aber "der beste Torjäger Europas - und damit der ganzen Welt". Emphatisch fügt er hinzu: "Andere sind zum Wissenschaftler oder zum Konzertpianisten geboren. Ich bin geboren, um Tore zu schießen." Kritikern dieser hochtrabenden Worte fällt es schwer, ihm stichhaltige Argumente entgegenzuhalten, denn Pancev antwortet auf dem Spielfeld mit Toren.

Der nicht sehr großgewachsene (die Angaben schwanken zwischen 172 und 177 cm) Stürmerstar von Roter Stern Belgrad ist ein leichtfüßiger, kopfballstarker, stets brandgefährlicher Angreifer mit einem ausgezeichneten Spürsinn für Torchancen. Er deckt den Ball gut ab, ist reaktionsschnell und lauert wie sein Vorbild Gerd Müller stets auf Abpraller. Pancev, der beidfüßig spielt, geht mutig in Zweikämpfe, unternimmt jedoch selten Aktionen auf eigene Faust und ist ziemlich lauffaul

Updated this thread, I don't see big difference between him and Santrač, or Gerd Muller...

This is a joke, right? Comparing a striker who couldn't settle in a big European league with the best CF ever is just laughable if you ask me..
