The Left attack rating is calculated by a combination of (in order of imporatance):
- Winger left winger
- Winger left wing back
- Scoring forwards
- Passing left winger
- Passing left inner midfielder
- Winger forwards
- Passing forwards
However, inner midfielder toward wing can add to the side rating, too.
The Central attack rating is believed to be more important than the Left attack or Right attack ; however opinion varies on the % of attacks that come from each of the three ratings. Research shows that (in the absence of special tactics) the number of attacks directed to the center is significantly higher than the number of attacks directed to either wing.
