Alex Smithies profile in 2010 after starting new game
This FM 2011 cheap goalkeeper has bags of potential. When the game starts, he can play well for any Championship side and tends to be snapped up quickly for his dirt cheap price. The scouts report below is from Arsenal’s Cagigao and shows what Smithies could become.
Apparently Smithies could play at a similar level to Almunia. In most cases this is correct, however buying him young, training him well and offering first team football can see Smithies progress beyond this level. Below is the profile of Smithies in 2019 from my Newcastle save. He has progressed well, but not reached his full potential.
Alex Smithies profile in 2019 aged 29
Smithies communication and aerial ability are great, not to mention his mental toughness and mind for the game. Having said this, I think the young gun will always struggle for pace and the ability to rush out off his line. Still an excellent signing for any club though…he spent the last 7 years playing top flight football week in week out within my Newcastle save.
My best buy rating: 7.5/10
