For those who aren’t interested in FIFA it’s probably best to navigate away from this page, but the title doesn’t leave much to the imagination. With FIFA 19 on the brink of release the player ratings have been revealed, and the Leeds United squad has a mixed bag, some seem correct and others extremely harsh.
Baily Peacock-Farrell – 66 – One of the most harshly rated players in the game and I haven’t even seen any of the other players outside of Leeds United.
Jamal Blackman – 69 – Probably a fair rating given we haven’t seen much of him. A Chelsea youngster, he maybe would have liked a few extra points.
Luke Ayling – 73 – Finally his rating has improved. For the best right-back in the league it is maybe slightly low.
Pontus Jansson – 76 – There we go. The highest rated at Leeds United and at a 76 he’s probably bang on where he should be.
Conor Shaughnessy – 64 – Didn’t play much after the start of last season and has the lowest rating.
Gaetano Berardi – 70 – Arguably the worst rating of them all. This is a player who has (until tomorrow) played every game so far, and hasn’t been on the losing side yet, not conceding many goals. A 70? Awful.
Liam Cooper – 71 – This is probably a fair rating given his season last time out. Has started this one well, but shouldn’t be higher than Berardi.
Barry Douglas – 75 – Joint second behind Pontus Jansson and rightly so after last season.
Kalvin Phillips – 71 – A wonderful start to the season but he’s always hovered around this rating. If he carries on this form that green arrow will emerge sooner rather than later.
Mateusz Klich – 72 – Another who should be higher given his start to the season.
Adam Forshaw – 71 – This is extremely harsh but his injury problems have probably cost him a better rating.
Lewis Baker – 71 – We are yet to see the best of Lewis Baker but he’s dropped a few points from the start of last seasons ratings.
Samu Saiz – 75 – Joint with Barry Douglas in second place. Deserves his rating.
Pablo Hernandez – 73 – So, so harsh. The best Leeds player by a country mile last season.
Gjanni Alioski – 72 – A fair rating but when you compare it to Pablo Hernandez it just shows you how much better Hernandez should have been rated.
Jack Harrison – 70 – We can’t really say if this is fair or not. I guess given Eunan O’Kane is a 69 nothing will seem realistic.
Stuart Dallas – 69 – Slightly harsh but given he’s down as a winger and isn’t quick his rating will have dropped slightly.
Tyler Roberts – 65 – Like Harrison it’s very hard to judge. Roberts is set to start his first game for Leeds tomorrow.
Patrick Bamford – 71 – The fact he is our biggest signing in 15 years and is a 71 just doesn’t seem right.
Kemar Roofe – 72 – This is another outrages attempt. Roofe has been on fire and he should be higher than this! Not a great way to round the ratings off.
