Abel Hernandez profile aged 26 in 2016

Abel Hernanadez career history until 2016

Well the profile of Abel Hernandez says it all really, therefore i should just stay quiet and let you study it… i would like to add something though, what ever way you look at it Abel Hernandez is the perfect striker. Deadly finishing, extraordinary pace and acceleration, calm and composed, determined, strong, great positional sense, great movement off the ball and the ability to anticipate where the ball will end up – what else do you need ? Unfortunately his price tag affects the rating, he would be a 10/10 if he was a little cheaper, but regardless of that price Abel Hernandez can become one of the best strikers in the world, therefore he is a must buy !!!

Best buy rating: 8.5/10

    Incredible player, just a real shame he costs so much.

    • comment avatar Ryan Daly July 6, 2012

      He certainly is, but as you say he is overlooked by many due to that price.

  • comment avatar Wedny July 6, 2012

    I am playing with a friend a LAN game, premier league, and he could bought this striker for 25 mil Euro. he didnt, he picked Doumbie, and we hasnt regret that yet. Sorry for english.

  • comment avatar Alexander Ceol July 6, 2012

    10/10 if you can get him cheaper? He is transfer listed on my save after one season, seeing how Palermo had a bad season.

    I can pick him up for his value, around £6m, for my liverpool, and Im thinking about it…

    • comment avatar Ryan Daly July 6, 2012

      get him in if he is transfer listed, 6m is a steal !

      • comment avatar Alexander Ceol July 6, 2012

        Inked him for the next 5 years, will report back his progress ^^

            first season with Abel Hernandez is over, he played 21(11) games, scored 21 goals, 12 assists with a average rating of 7.62.

            he has developed a bit in speed, also 17 finishing

            All in all a fantastic purchase ^^

  • comment avatar Dan Heineman July 6, 2012

    The picture on the previous page is of Javier Pastore not Hernandez

    • comment avatar Ryan Daly July 6, 2012

      yea i noticed that trying to fix it

  • comment avatar Chul July 6, 2012

    what are you talking about?! this guy is mediocre at best! low Finishing, low composure,low work rate and team work. He barely is a 7/10 player regardless of price. I would take Fierro any day of the week and even as an 18 year old Fierro is possibly as good as him.
    Shame on you for saying he is a 10/10 player!

  • comment avatar Ryan Daly July 6, 2012

    Finishing – 16, Composure – 13 they are really low ? he has averaged over 7 in all his seasons in one of the best leagues in the world scoring 54 goals, despite making just 20 appearances a season (less than that in his last 2 seasons) and being managed by the computer !
    Have you even had him in your team ?
    I too would take Fierro over Hernandez given he costs 39m less and Fierro is better so i will give you that one and if i were you i would take a closer look, pal

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 6, 2012

      I have to agree with Ryan here, anyone who says Hernandez is mediocre at best and not as good as Fierro at the start of the game doesn’t know the game…Hernandez is leaps and bounds ahead of Fierro at the start of the game and one of the best strikers potentially. While Fierro is always a better option, Hernandez is still an excellent prospect, mediocre is simply an insult to someone of his standard.

      P.S. Watch how you approach the authors Chul, we all spend a lot of time making these profiles and its not a job, just a hobby. We use our free time to try and help people with these so comments in a patronizing tone like yours are not welcome…we don’t have to do all this work, and certainly don’t appreciate comments of that nature!

      • comment avatar Chul July 7, 2012

        So I cant say “shame on you”, but you can say that “i dont know the game”? Nice dobbelt standards, or are there different rules for admins? I dont know.. And I dont say he isnt as good as him, I said Fierro was “possibly as good as him”.

        I stand by my comment, his composure is just too low for a striker and if you take a look at his scoring / game statistic it is only in his first two seasons he is doing alright. The last 3 is just mediocre. I do believe a good striker should have at least 17/17 in finishing / compusure, especially in Abel’s case where he will get a lot of one on ones due to his high speed and off the ball.

        And if you think I “dont know the game” here is a blog update from my current game where I play Leicester:

        And a screenshot of Fierro in season 4

        • comment avatar Darren Smith July 7, 2012

          Its simple mate, I run this site and won’t stand for the writers who give up their free time being spoken too like crap…if someone speaks to me or the writers in a certain way then they can expect the same tone back…its simple, respect the writers or you’ll be band, makes no odds to me!! If you’d argued your case on Hernandez like a civilized person as opposed to the patronizing and sarcastic tone you used then it would have received a normal debate, but coming in the way you did is not acceptable. I will repeat, its not the argument you were raising thats the problem its the way you expressed it. We have absolutely no problem with people disagreeing with our opinions, in fact we welcome it…but what we won’t stand for is been spoken too like idiots.

          I will apologize for saying you don’t know the game, that was a rash comment considering I don’t know you, but it pisses me off when people come here and speak to the authors like crap when they are giving up their free time to help! You were belittling the author and I’m sure you wouldn’t appreciate if someone came to your blog doing the same to you. Any comment that starts ‘What are you talking about’ gives off an aggressive and patronizing tone so I suggest you think about what you’re typing in the future.

          • comment avatar Chul July 7, 2012

            I dont think my comment is very aggressive I merely state facts. Maybe it could have used a few smileys, but I am not a teenage girl so I tend not to use them much. You can delete the post if you want to, but I stand by my opinion of Abel.

            PS. yes 13 composure is low and any striker averaging under 7.00 would be instantly transfer listed in any of my teams.

            And I didnt say Fierro = Abel at the start of the game, I said at the age of 18.

          • comment avatar Darren Smith July 7, 2012

            I don’t know how you intended that comment to come across but how can you possibly think starting a post with the phrase ‘What are you talking about’ isn’t aggressive or patronizing. And then saying ‘shame on you’ like Ryan’s some sort of little kid’?? Very patronizing if you ask me and could be seen as aggressive! I think you need to think about the way you speak to people…I couldn’t care less about the player anymore, this is an issue I have with you and your tone, I’m a little surprised that you are still acting like a kid with sarcastic comments. Its up to you mate, you either drop this and start treating people with a little more respect or we’ll just spam your comments, not too bothered either way.

          • comment avatar dzunglv July 8, 2012

            @Chul: since the writers and admin had worked so hard on the data of this site, I think you are too aggressive too. You like this site, you’re welcomed, if not, leaving is your choice!

            And if you think a top scorer must be 17 composure or 17 finish, I think you should really know more about the game. Darwin Quintero was the top scorer of Premier League, scoring for my SUnderland 30 league goals in first season for just 11 composure and 13 finish!

            Yeah, Composure or Finish stat is not but the goals is what make striker’s reputation.

            I agree Fierro is the amazing, but just accept another stars dudes, there are still many more of them in our game!

            Here is my Abel Hernandez, 35 goals which equals to your Fierro in your image, but for just 18 league games, not 35.

      • comment avatar dzunglv July 8, 2012

        sorry, 25 goals, but i think he deserves 10/10 rating for my 17,5 mil purchase

  • comment avatar vicio July 7, 2012

    after the first season , you can bought him at 8 millions euros.
    he’s a fantastic player

    • comment avatar Ryan Daly July 7, 2012

      For 8m he is a great buy

  • comment avatar Alexander Ceol July 7, 2012

    I just want to thank everybody who contributes here, I love this site! ^^

    • comment avatar Ryan Daly July 7, 2012

      Thanks a lot, that’s greatly appreciated

    • comment avatar Benjy July 7, 2012

      Yeah couldn’t agree more with Alexander here. You all do a fantastic job and shouldn’t pay any attention whatsoever to those who show no respect. Thanks a lot

  • comment avatar Jonathan Carver July 7, 2012

    I have a love/hate relationship with him, he always seems to score against me which makes me hate him, but he is an amazing player :D a great buy if you can get him!!

    I also fully agree with Darren and want to defend Ryan here, myself, Ryan and Karl all are in close contact about which top profiles to do, and we all decide whether certain players are good enough! It’s a team effort and if you insult one of us, you insult all of us :(

    We all love working on the site, its an honour and I thank Darren for letting us contribute, but it can be a kick in the teeth when our hard work goes unnoticed or even worse insulted.

    Anyway a really good player and I always look to get him if I can afford him :D

    • comment avatar Ryan Daly July 8, 2012

      Thanks a lot Jonathan and Darren for defending me here. I would like to second everything you said Jonathan
      He is one of my favourite players in FM12, he is a real boost to any team and i always try to get him too :D

  • comment avatar step July 8, 2012

    i want to ask both darren and chul two things about carlos fierro.

    to chul:
    what kind of training did you give to carlos fierro and what role does he play proacher ou trequartista ?

    to darren:
    darren is possible fierro stop being a trquartista to be a procher? i say this because in my staff they said he plays best as a trequartista ( i had de luuk de jong and didn´t go very well), and i prefer procher.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 8, 2012

      Just because your staff say he best used in a certain role doesn’t mean that is the case. If Trequartista doesn’t work with your formation then it doesn’t matter how good a player is in that role, it just won’t work…I used Fierro as poacher for around 6 years to great success so would recommend that.

  • comment avatar step July 8, 2012

    ok ty darren :) for the moment i have this st in my benfica save

    st in second season:
    ayew (best st for me in the moment)
    sanogo (last season socre 10 golas in 18 games)
    nelson oliveira (thinking in selling him doesnt score and is alredy made 9/10 games )
    fierro (loan)

    what do you think in your opinion what i should do ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 8, 2012

      I’d keep Ayew and Sanogo, lose Oliveira and buy Fierro.

  • comment avatar step July 8, 2012

    i have fierro but is on loan in vitoria guimaraes

  • comment avatar Alexander Ceol July 9, 2012

    Is there any reason you haven’t made a profile for Edison Cavani? always my best scoring machine :P

    • comment avatar Ryan Daly July 9, 2012

      i have got cavani lined up

      • comment avatar Alexander Ceol July 9, 2012

        cool, thanks for the reply! :)

  • comment avatar Sid July 10, 2012

    In my 3rd season with Valencia now.Soldado was doing great untill he got injured in 2nd season and since then he has never been the same player.Already got Fierro and regen as my back up striker,and Alcacer on loan at Milan.Thinking about selling Soldado and replacing him with Olivera or Hernandez.Who do you think i should go for? Cheers guys :)

    • comment avatar Alexander Ceol July 10, 2012

      Hernandez if you can get a good deal

    • comment avatar Ryan Daly July 10, 2012

      I would say Hernandez if you can get him at a reasonable price, on the other hand your most likely to be getting Oliveira for very little, so if Hernandez isn’t too dear then definitely go for him but if not Oliveira isn’t a bad second choice

      • comment avatar Sid July 11, 2012

        Thanks guys :) Just wondering about Paco Alcacer,He looks to have great potential with good pace and finishing attribute.I gave him a lot of game time in my second season and his scoring record is good but it came in patches and mostly against weak teams.Does he develop into great striker in future?If anybody has any experience with him, please do advice :) Cheers

  • comment avatar Misund July 13, 2012

    Hey, im playing with milan, have a chance of signing abel for 15mill, would that be a good replacement for robinho?

    • comment avatar LukaVi August 14, 2012

      He is better than Robinho
