Being the FIFA fanatic I am, I thought it'd be interesting to bring in some FIFA numbers on Marin.
Marin has drifted between a rating of 78 and 80 on FIFA since FIFA 10. In FIFA 10, he had a rating of 79, which moved up to 80 in FIFA 11, but has moved down to 78 in FIFA 12.
More specifically, Marin's strong attributes in FIFA 10 were his crossing (80), short passing (84), dribbling (88) free kick accuracy (84), ball control (85), acceleration (86) and sprint speed (82).
In FIFA 11, Marin's crossing score was dropped to 78, but his short passing, dribbling and ball control ratings remained the same. His free kick accuracy also dropped to 81, but his sprint speed increased to 83 and he was given an agility rating of 91, one of the highest in the game.
In addition, he was given an 80 rating for both reactions and vision.
In FIFA 12, Marin's scores have dropped across the board. His crossing has dropped to 77, while short passing has dropped five points to 79. His dribbling still remains at 88, but his free kick accuracy is now at 78, and his ball control rating is down to 84.
His sprint speed is down to 78, but his acceleration is up to 87 and his agility has remained sky high at 91. He has also been given a balance rating of 90, one of the highest in the game. Reactions and vision have dropped to 77 and 79, respectively.
Make whatever you want to of these numbers. FIFA games can be very hit-and-miss with their ratings, but ratings have gotten more and more accurate with each edition's release. Especially in FIFA 12, the depth of playing style breakdown indicates a great deal of scouting goes into rating each player.
