10 seasons. My longest ML run ever. Took me 8 months. Top 10s for the most important stats.
As expected each position has a player that has played a shitload of games. Exception made to DMF where two players appear: the initial option Dier, and Britton, who has played most games for 3 seasons now and played occasionally as DMF and CMF before that.
Some tremendous numbers here. 49 goals per season is an incredible feat, but this includes the first 4 seasons where those numbers never went above 40 goals. With the current stats, Zach Clough is the best striker I've used in PES2016.
Outstanding numbers here as well. Hughes as expected, Clough proving his range of abilities, and a great score for Ward-Prowse. This also puts Clough, Hughes and Rooney and the only 3 players with more than 100 goals and assists.
Rashford proving himself as a great striker, even if he didn't really fit the style of the team. Clough is just ridiculous. Compared to the Porto ML, André Silva still gets the upper hand with 1.59 goals/game, Ronaldo with 1.34, while the 3rd place goes to Paciência with 0.92. The Swans had their goals scored by a bigger numbers of players, proving a better squad depth.
Hughes is by far
the most intelligent offensive midfielder I've ever used. "Assist king" Bernardo Silva has a relatively mediocre ratio of just 0.54 assists/game. Light-years behind Hughes. The best passer from Porto was Quaresma with 0.76 assists/game, which is closer to Hughes, proving that the new formation actually influences who gets the most assists (and having a better target for crosses).
The most important stat. Who's the most relevant player in the team? No surprises as Clough takes the prize, followed by a very consistent Rooney. Hughes' incredible assists stats are not enough for a bronze medal though, with the prolific Solanke and Rashford taking spots 3 and 4. Worth noting the 9 players with more than one direct goal contribution per game.
Porto had just 7 players with a ratio of 1.0 or more, but André Silva, with 1.86, still claims the top spot over the 1.76 of Zach Clough.
The best clash though is between Rooney and Quaresma. Both regens of the highest order, with more or less similar stats and roles in the team, they register ratios of 1.69 and 1.51 respectively.
Baines is, unsurprisingly, the most prolific defender. Crossing and set piece ability well above anything else in the squad, let alone defensive players. Worth noting Valencia's unstoppable marauding runs which often result in solo goals.
Butland takes the crown as the most used player, followed by talisman Hughes and tireless Dele Alli in the midfield. Clough missing the top 3 due to the few injuries he's picked up throughout the years. Also worth noting the absence of a right back, a position that as seen 3/4 players in just 10 years.
Compared to Porto (200 goals, 151.6 assists, 75.57%) Swansea have been better
. As expected the MM formation results in a better, more mobile attack over the 4-2-3-1 used with Porto.
