This FM 2012 Championship Player Profile of Darwin Quintero does the striker no justice. I have heard gamers rave about this guy, some say he scores more than a goal a game, while others say he helped them lift the Europa League trophy seasons after promotion. One things for sure, Quintero can grow beyond the screenshots above and is the must buy player for any Championship side. Your stumbling block is a £2.6 million asking price and £13K a week wage demands, but get over them and you have the best striker any Championship side could buy. I think he’s worth the outlay purely from hearing gamers say he can play at the top level too.

Best buy rating: 9.5/10

First season managing Sunderland, and Quintero does work like a charm. He finished as the top scorer of the league, scoring 30 goals for 32 starting matches. Several clubs wants him for 8-10mil after the 1st season but i want to test him on the second one. A really goal machine who can make an instant impact.

I also suggest Mushaga Bakenga, Norwegian youngster who can score the same as Darwin Quintero. This guy is only available if Norway league is playable in the game save.

Adam Lamb

I am really interested in signing him for Southampton and I have tried 3 times in my first season. however he has failed to gain a work permit. Yet on all of the message boards people say that you will have no problem in getting a work permit for him!? why cant I?


unstoppable! 29 goals in 26 games in the league and 46 goals overall!!


why cant i find him on my game? i have a medium database and all of europes main leagues loaded do i have to have the mexican league loaded?

Kieren Amand

Signed him for West Ham and he managed to score 36 goals in 32 Champ games. This lad is unstoppable and a great signing for the Champ. Now lets see how he does in the Prem!

reece robinson

Turned out mediocre in my save only scoring 9-14 goals per season in the epl even when playing him in his preferred position.


this guy is a goal scoring freak, i bought him at southampton and he scored 46 goals in one season in all competitions which beat our club record for goals in a season which has been broken since 1960, plus the scary thing is, just when u think after promotion he wont be as good, he proves u wrong, scoring 31 goals in the season, he is amazing and clubs are raving for his signature, but i am not letting him go, unless i get a really good offer.


AN ABSOLUTE BEAST!!!!!!!!!!!!! 55 goals in 40 league appearances with southampton in the championsip and echoed the same in the EPL!!!!!!!!!! every save is almost exactly the same with him!!! a demi-god


i played him as a poacher with agirretxte(i think) as a targetman support. he scored 60 goals in 46 matches and 5 16 assists while agi scored 19 with 22 assist. i honnestly couldnt believe my eyes.

I’ve just bought him for Wolves in the championship after he banged them in for Southampton for the computer. I’ll let you know how he does.

Jack McD

How would you recommend he is played Darren? I usually play one upfront don’t know whether he’ll suit that or not and maybe he is better with a TM as support.


i bought quintero for 3 million at blackpool , npower championship scorin 80 goals in the league , i won the fa cup and the comunity shield , in the first league he scores 42 goals , rooney next with 36 and in my third season he s leading the score charts with 25 goals in 18 matches helping me to be in 4 in the english premiership with blackpool.i use him in a 4 1 2 3 system
