Aston Villa's legend Johnny Dixon played as inside-right. He spent his entire professional career with Aston Villa from 1945 to 1961 and scored 144 goals in 430 matches. He's remembered by Aston Villa's fans not only for the number of goals he scored and the fact that he played only for them but also for his incredible performance and assist for McParland with a perfect cross in the 1956-57 FA Cup final against Manchester United that led the team to win the competition as captain. Dixon was a hardworking inside forward gifted with class, courage and determination, a dynamic player who seemed to have unlimited energy. He had outstandind ball control and he always preferred to do the simplest thing instead of the most complex ones, passing the ball rather than trying a dribbling. He was not only a reliable finalizer but also a fighter in the air, a fantastic passer and used to move across the field playing as additional winger or helping in the midfield throughout the match when needed. Despite being considered one of the best inside-right at the time he never capped for England.

What about actually rating players based on full games and not just on texts/YT compilations?
Seriously, all those overrated English players sets should be deleted ASAP, I don't get the sense of posting 100000000000 sets a week instead of actually posting one accurate set :roll:

Believe me or not but I actually watched full games. The videos from YouTube are the last thing I watch and I obviously post them here. The only available match of Dixon was the FA Cup final against Manchester United and I watched it. The same goes for the Arsenal players. I watched full matches from the years correspondent to the eras I chose for the sets. You might say that I made mistakes, I would accept it. You might say that something has to be corrected and then give me suggestions. However that's how I considered those players after not only reading many infos but also watching matches. As I already said, believe it or not but if I have to spend hours watching matches just for you or anyone else to tell me that I don't do it and the sets must be canceled is frustrating. That said: if you want, for the next player I make I will take note of every important moment of the matches I'll watch and send them to you in a PM so you'll know how I rate players.
