his stats are quite low though. considering after a player reaches 24 their stats don't increase dramatically.
At work just now so can't compare stats but I'm into my 3rd season now and Coates has been a beast for me the entire time. Played a bit first season since I was playing agger at left back at one point. Sold skirtel the turtle at the end of the 1st season and agger after the 2nd.
it was the opposite for me, i played skrtel and agger for my second season, sold coates for 27 million and bring the greece wonderkid CB, forgot his name, for 35 million, proved to be much more solid as I just conceded 10 goals after 15 matches.
coates was my best player for two seasons.. about 2 seasons in, had mad average match rating of like 7.70+ at the end of the season
Coates is the bomb for me, always sell agger, martin kelly will soon become one of the best too.
