Last season yeah they were pretty broken.
Tbh I put Higuain just one cut below the Suarez, Aguero, Benzema bracket. He’s just not a complete enough player for me to put him in that tier but I guess this gets into a philosophical argument about what you want in a striker.
That’s true about longevity vs. current form @SRCJJ , I’ve been guilty of this before myself. I won’t get into an argument about PEA/Higuain because I don’t watch enough of either, mainly know Higuain from his Madrid days ofc and Argentina games, but again,Higuain is not the most complete of players, and I think his outstanding goal tallies (which are absolutely no fluke, in terms of predators/pure strikers he’s the best arond) maybe make people a little too confident in calling him better than different types of forwards like PEA, Aguero, Benzema. It’s much harder, ofc, to measure goals that wouldn’t’ve been scored if it weren’t for a player’s movement/creation of space/pass before assist/eliminating a defender 1v1 than it is to measure the ones that are scored by that player himself, so yeah…anyways, like I said, this quickly becomes a philosophical argument.
