Felipe Anderson’s career history until 2018


Felipe Anderson is a playmaker, he has good passing, creativity, physical attributes, dribbling and flair. At just 18 years old the young Brazilian has potential and you get to see that in the screenshots above. His minimum fee release clause of £5.25 million makes this Brazilian an excellent purchase to sprouse up your midfield for the next 12 or so years.

Best buy rating: 8/10

      And I reckon you can make him better mate.

    He developed differently on mine. Much higher passing

    • comment avatar Andrew Grant February 8, 2012

      is a pic of his current stats.

      • comment avatar Darren Smith February 8, 2012

        Yeah he hasn’t developed well in the screenshot shown due to a lack of good management and first team football…would be interesting to see how he grows a few years from the screenshot you shared.

    I bought him for beşiktaş, turkey and gave him chances for first-team right away. He only managed to keep good scores when he plays in central midfield. My midfield establishment in two 4-1-2-2-1 tactics were AP attack-BWM defend-DLP support and BBM – BBM – DM defend. I bought him for release clause bid and sold 4 years later for 12M euros

      Yeah he’d be a decent signing for teams like that but any higher rep and he’d probably get swallowed up in the competition.

        who are your 2 highest recommendations for each position. Keeper, Defenders, midfielders, strikers

        • comment avatar Darren Smith May 30, 2012

          Probably Ter Stegen, Kameni in goal, Kara, Papadopoulos in defence, Hazard, Kovacic in midfield and finally Fierro with Sanogo upfront.

  • comment avatar Ross June 28, 2012

    how do i get the best out of Felipe Anderson? he’s been terrible for me. Entering my 3rd season now. i play with 5 in midfield and one poacher. I have two wingers. Fernando as defensive mid then Veratti/Faurlin and then Felipe Anderson, any suggestions on how to play him? or I might just end up having to sell him he’s been that bad!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 28, 2012

      I have never managed him so not sure TBH but advanced playmaker with attack duty may suit him.

  • comment avatar Ross June 29, 2012

    yeah its been mainly what I have been using him as. Perhaps he’s jus been bad because it was a terrible season overall for my team last year, maybe he’ll settle in better next season, he’ll get one more chance before i think about selling him. Thanks for the reply.

  • comment avatar Chuck August 6, 2012

    Could he play as an AMR ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith August 6, 2012

      Maybe but I wouldn’t try it to be honest.

  • comment avatar yilancik October 3, 2012
