This FM 2012 player profile of Albin Ekdal is that of a wildly underrated player according to his scout reports above. The Swedish playmaker develops into a wonderful midfielder with bags of ability. His passing, first touch, technique and general mental attributes develop to make Ekdal one of the best. He also has decent physical attributes and as you can see, Pedro has really gotten the best from him.

Best buy rating: 8/10

TO think that I let cagliari take him…although…I use use box-to-box midfielders and one defensive midfielder (Pirlo) as deep-lying playmaker. Ekdal is probaly better off at Cagliari.


i really should have posted my rants about the mc/amc’s here; not in muhammed demirci’s profile.


Another nice profile! I would be greatful if you could upload more DC profiles? There are so many great MC/AMC/ST profiles, would love if you could put up 1, cheers. :)

can some one tell me if kevin de bruyne turns out to be a good player , because he have god tatical and mental attributes but he lacks in physichal and in the real life he sign for chelsea.


He is fantastic had him for Lazio and now trying to get him to come to Everton with me very good player

Looks like a great CM for any team. Similar to Badelj and Poli.

But Darren, wouldn’t it be better to holiday one game and get the screenshots from that save. I mean, Pedro can train any average player to a top player. I’m sure that if he would train Ganso, Neymar, or Gotze etc. They would be a lot better than their screenshot are now.

(Sorry for my English, but you understand I hope)


where and how can i get this black/red skin ?


darren is juventus a good team to train ?


Which training schedules were used to develop this player ?


Got him for my squad as I was looking for someone to step into soon-to-be-aging Arteta shoes. I actually had bags of money to spend (35MM thereabouts?)on anyone, but specifically chose him as he seemed to fit my demands best. Playing him in as a DLP either in CM or DCM positions. Perfect fit. He doesnt score or assist much playing so deep, but from what i can tell he gets the job done and is a vital link between attack and defense.
