Eugene Konoplyanka’s career history until 2016

This FM 2012 player profile of Eugene Konoplyanka shows great potential but still doesn’t do the Ukrainian justice. This kid has all the makings of a dangerous left winger and certainly develops into one with Liverpool scoring 7 goals and assisting 22 from 2014-2016. All of this was with the CPU’s management, so its safe to say that Eugene can develop beyond what you see above. Develop his pace, acceleration, finishing and crossing just a few more points from the future screenshots above and you’ll have a quality left winger. £8.5 million isn’t exactly cheap but Konoplyanka seems worth the investment if you are prepared to offer first team football.

Best buy rating: 7.5/10

    hi .this kid seems to have enought quality to be in major legues right in the bigining. i have a questioin is ola john from twente a good player ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 9, 2012

      John doesn’t develop well in any of my save, I don’t really rate him to be honest.

        ok ty i asked because my staff told me he could be a big star . i will make a offer for him because thei only ask 3/4 millions for him in 1st season and if turns to be something at this price is gonna be a bargain.

  • comment avatar tommy May 9, 2012

    and just one last question . do you prefer wallace dr from fluminense or romario from vitoria . the same age and the same position ?

  • comment avatar tommy May 9, 2012

    ty i saw him from the profile and i bought him in other saves. probably i will make and offer for both since both are very cheap

  • comment avatar Nelson Costa Inácio May 10, 2012

    It’s a good player, but is very expensive. On South America, will be possible to find better players and with a cheaper price.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 10, 2012

      I agree, but if we just stuck to the best and cheapest players to profile there would be just 20 players on the site…its all about alternatives.

    I’m in my first season at QPR 6 months into the season in 8th place, have a budget of 3.5 million or loan would be fine, looking for atticking midfielder preferably experienced. Any ideas?

  • comment avatar james May 15, 2012

    Thanks but his work permit is illegible any other players?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 15, 2012

      Other than that just look through the cheap players list.

  • comment avatar Heresy May 16, 2012

    I love Konoplyanka’s flair and dribbling which promises a lot of created chances even in the first season. He’d be a good capture for most mid-table teams but the price is a bit too steep for that tier in my opinion. Yet one can always build a very structured deal with min. goals scored and whatnot to balance out the expenses a bit.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 16, 2012

      Yeah the price tag did hold his rating back somewhat.

  • comment avatar Mubiru September 13, 2012

    I have him on my Real Betis save, managed to sign him second season for £4.5 million as I was in the Europa League. He has performed well and has helped the club qualift for the champions league and been a top performer in the CL. I just find he tends to lack an end product; will skin a couple of players but player a bad ball. He also tries the most audacious shots I’ve ever seen, scoring about 1 a season. A top player yet extremely frustrating.

      I can imagine him been frustrating, that killer edge does seem to stop him just short of brilliance.
