When you look at a players attributes in "overview" a shape is formed based on some headings; those are "mental", "physical", "creativity", "technical", "attacking", "aerial" and "defensive". Does anyone know which specific stats each heading is referring to?
Probably Aerial.
I don't think you understood the question, haha :P

I know that aerial only consists of jumping and heading (for non-keepers)
Speed is made up from acceleration and pace
Physical is strength and stamina (I'm not sure if natural fitness is also in here)
Technical is dribbling, technique and I think first touch as well

I don't know about the other headers, but as you can see it is definitely not made up from all the stats, so don't forget a quick glance at the stats when looking at a new player ;)
Aerial refers to the player's Heading and Jumping attributes. Defending refers to mostly Anticipation, Tackling, Marking and Positioning. Attacking refers to Finishing, Off the Ball and to a certain degree some technical and mental attributes which I'm not exactly sure of. Mental refers to the whole spectrum of mental attributes. Speed obviously refers to Pace and Acceleration. Physical refers to generally all physical attributes. Technical refers obviously to technical abilities and creativity refers to Passing, Creativity and to a certain degree Flair.

Please, if anyone has more info on this, feel free to add or correct me.
