    Well, got about 6 games. 1 win and 5 losses lol.

    Always a bit hard to evaluate a player when you lose a lot, but so far I'd summarize as follows:

    Ran him with Sniper

    Pace:
    Even without any pace boost, Nakata's acceleration from a standstill or strafe dribble is really great. He simply flies past defenders in the first burst. His top speed isn't anything special but that's fine for him as a False 9

    Shooting:
    Okay here's where I'm truly baffled. Maybe I just had a very off night in terms of shooting (I only scored a few goals throughout the 6 games), but Nakata couldn't seem to hit the broad side of a barn (he ended up 3 goals in 6 with one penalty). The weird thing is that his Prime was a phenomenal finisher, and the PIM has +3 finishing, +5 shot power, +7 long shots, +4 curve, and +5 composure... Again, maybe just an off night for me, so I'll see how he is after further games.

    Passing:
    Excellent for either a CAM or CF/F9 role. Crisp short and long passing.

    Dribbling:
    Excellent as well. Great first touch. Great dribbling in skill moves, left stick dribbling , and strafe dribbling .

    Physical:
    Not very strong and stamina still drains a bit, but that's to be expect with a minimal boost here

    Defense:
    Can put in the odd tackle here and there but not really something u need from him

    In summary - I think it's too early to fully evaluate, but initially I'm not blown away by PIM Nakata. Especially the shooting has been strange, but I think I just need to give him more games. No regrets getting him, and I plan to keep him as the central part of my team for the rest of the year. His pace, passing, and dribbling is great so he will either be my main man as a CF or a CAM if I can't get his finishing better.

    Edit:
    One of the goals he scored, he took very well on his weak foot and at a tight angle. It's mainly the last game I played that I just couldn't seem to score with him (or anyone tbh). So honestly, I think I'll appreciate his finishing if I give him more chances.

    This was that goal

    Yeah, I don't get it. They've given us some really nice Japanese cards this year, but then completely miss other very easy opportunities to add more.

    Thanks for the review @RayS

    Still grinding through this god forsaken icon swaps to pick up Nakata. Two to go, hell awaits I'm sure.

    On the plus side though, I just found out that Optus Sport here in good old 'Straya (Australia) are going to be broadcasting 4 J League games a week with English commentary, plus a weekly highlights show.

    So very happy about that! Will be watching the opener tomorrow.

    wowa, that's huge! Wish they'd do something like that in the States. Hoping for some nice J-leagures in future TOTWs.

    i mean Hattrick. So he will get Intl MOTM? anyone guess what his card will look like. Silver to Orange looks like a +6 to +9 boost. I guess he will have 80+ pace, close 80 shooting, 80 passing, 80+ dribbling, and 70 phy. NICE!!!

    We finally have a bigger dude for attacking.

    Don't get excited yet. I went to look and I don't think they issued a imotm yet. It's only for domestic league so far. Who knows. They might just give a blind eye again. That would be soooo disappointing.

    What a boss! I really hope he gets something.

    I didn't see the game, watching the highlights now... He started from RM though, we're pretty much covered there.

    Wouldn't mind lifting him to a RF though and playing him upfront.

    Really, hope not. I think the lineup below looks pretty official. uEfa website shows different. Anyone watched the game ? Where was he playing?

    Just saw it. Kubo is obviously the much better RW but still nice to have more options!

    Congratulations to Endo for equalling the record for appearances in the J league with 631


    Would be nice if EA gives him a special card when he goes on to surpass the record

    Nakata down to 883k BIN on PS4

    Not sure at what price to bite at as it still seems expensive compared to the 88 which is down to 260k

    It's really annoying me not having that PIM Nakata in my squad.

    Went 14 wins this weekend league with Kamada at RF and Kubo at ST.

    Speaking of the man...

    t1EnGrO.png

    These are all legitimately all Rivals and WL. He is honestly a monster. Misses some easy chances on the occasion, but I can forgive him.

    Kamada was actually decent at RF... 30 games, 14 goals and 15 assists. Got a little less effective when I was against tougher opponents, but I expected that.

    Annoying thing for me was I was 11-5 and then lost SEVEN games in a row, then won 3 in a row and I was done at that point.

    dang you've racked up the games (and goals!) and Kubo already! You score any free kicks with him yet?

    Good job slogging through that losing streak too. I tend to get really frustrated anytime I've lost more than even 3 in a row!
