This FM 2012 player profile of Benedikt Howedes shows a top class central defender capable of walking into any starting XI. The only thing disappointing about this profile is the future screenshots above which show some development mentally and physically but not technically. I personally believe Howedes can develop beyond what you see here with the right guidance. And taking that into consideration with a price tag of £17.75 million, he’s certainly worth a bid for the bigger clubs.

Best buy rating: 8.5/10

I like the way you “farm” the Bundesliga :D

@Höwedes: He is totally worth it. A great DC and he is really constant in his Ratings. A great move is to buy him in the second season or before that, if you have the money. If you train him well, you can solve his technical problems.

This guy is a tank in his first season with me won player of the year and scored 15 goals in the league. Darren I was wondering if you’ve thought about making a napoli tactic since there now playing awesome football. Carry on the good work mate


Hi Darren, I was wondering if you could do a profile about Kokorin, from Dynamo Moscow. I just started a new save and he looks very promising!


Half of these players are edited. I have checked their potential on Genie Scout and they are nowhere near as good as this when they fully develop and I’ve played at least 7 seasons with 5 different teams


players have different potentials for different people, depends on how they are coached etc
darren do you think you could do a profile on kurt zouma? cb for st etienne, 16 years old

Boixos Nois

Andre Santos from Sporting Lisbon


Lucas Severo of Internacional(Bra) U20’s
4 stars for the big clubs at the start of the game.


He develops really well if you sign Severo for a club with a goiod youth academy he develops very well

Junayd Hoque

I can buy this guy for £6 million on my game, but it says that he is only a fairly good player, so should I get him Darren?

Jose Mourinio

Darren I have a very good future profile of Mario Gotze that I managed myself how do I get the screen shot to you?


Thoughts on Hummels?
