Benedikt Howedes’ career history until 2016

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.

      Yeah he does seem like a solid purchase and at a good age too, young enough to last for many seasons but not too young as to not warrant first team football.

    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

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 13, 2012

      He certainly seems like a tank but good to know you’ve had success with him. I don’t have enough time recently for making tactics and guides, so there probably won#t be a Napoli tactic I’m afraid.

    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!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 15, 2012

      Sorry but that player is not visible in my save, you may need the appropriate country or a large database loaded.

  • comment avatar Jub April 16, 2012

    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

    • comment avatar scouser April 16, 2012

      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

      • comment avatar Darren Smith April 16, 2012

        @Scouser, Zouma does look talented on patch 12.2 but he’s not visible in the previous patches and I don’t have a save far enough in the future on the new patch I’m afraid.

      @Jub, You may want to actually do some research and use your brain before throwing slander around.

      Just think about what you’re saying and what this site is about…its not here to show off how I have developed players as almost all of them are with the CPU’s management, I have nothing to gain by editing these players attributes.

      I can’t comment on what genie scout may say as I don’t cheat in game, but one thing I will swear on my wife’s life is that NONE of these profiles have edited attributes and to be accused of that not only offends me but makes you look a little daft IMO.

      • comment avatar Benjy April 18, 2012

        For all we know Darren, you might not even like your wife ;)

        • comment avatar Darren Smith April 18, 2012

          lol, well you’ll just have to trust me on that one I guess. :) I just get really pissed when someone comes in with ludicrous and unfound claims…I didn’t spend many days creating this site, then more than two hours every night maintaining it just to show some fake profiles. I think future comments of that nature will be treated for what they are to me, SPAM.

    Andre Santos from Sporting Lisbon

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 17, 2012

      Will take a look at him later, thanks.

  • comment avatar Dominic April 19, 2012

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

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 19, 2012

      He looks very good but hasn’t developed well in any of my saves, more than likely due to the bad CPU management but I can’t report on him without a good future profile.

  • comment avatar Dominic April 19, 2012

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

  • comment avatar Junayd Hoque May 3, 2012

    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?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 3, 2012

      I’d still buy him as the scout reports can be very misleading.

  • comment avatar Jose Mourinio June 5, 2012

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

  • comment avatar James July 23, 2012

    Thoughts on Hummels?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 23, 2012

      I think he’s a good player, just needs more quickness.
