This FM 2012 player profile of Gaston Ramirez shows the wonderkid has talent and shouldn’t scare off any potential buyers from the asking price shown. While I have stated what Ramirez is available for at the start of a new game after testing on two separate saves, he is in fact far cheaper later that season and at the start of the second season. I generally see this talent go for between £3-10 million which is a snap hence the 8/10 rating. Provided you can get Ramirez at the knockdown rate he is a brilliant signing with well rounded attributes making for a very consistent and reliable performer. But if you are considering the £40.5 million asking price then stop as he’s not worth such a hefty fee and patience will see that value quartered.

Best buy rating: 8/10 (only if signed for reasonable price)

    I am thinking about offloading Elia and getting this guy or Brahimi for my Juve save. Obviously it all depends on whether or not I manage to beat Parma in the Giovinco auction.

    In which case, should I offload Elia? He does play well as inside forward in my set up but he is prone to mood swings and delusions of grandeur. What say you, Darren?

    Oh, and Happy New Year, Darren

    Hey Darren, Ramirez had amazing attributes, but for me it seemed you did little improving of his skills in 8 years time. I don’t mean to offend, but from 8 physical skills, he improved 14 points, meaning less than 2 points per skill. From his technical skills the improvement was even lower, 8 points in 14, less than 1 pps. I’m an avid reader of yours and fan of your reviews, but in my opinion you could re-check Ramirez because this save has been sub-par.

      There’s two ways to look at it. I personally think he grew well considering the CPU who always screws up development was in charge, he spent a while at crappy clubs and didn’t play an awful lot either. I just think that you should be saying imagine what he is capable of with the right management.

        Yeah, I expressed my thoughts in the worst manner possible, thanks for taking it lightly and understanding.

          We all have opinions and sometimes when we write them they don’t come across as we are thinking them in our heads. I do it all the time :)

  • comment avatar Recobenzo January 29, 2012

    I like this layer as well…BUT he is not even starting for Bologna anymore…and he is not even on the bench for the game today. It does not state any injury (AND you can never get any news on these players as to why or why not they play or not) Soo…I do not know what the issue is with him.

  • comment avatar lee April 4, 2012

    your right recobenzo,but darren doesnt know why he is in the reserves so he has given you the silent treatment

    • comment avatar Darren April 5, 2012

      Actually Lee, that comment was with regards to real life football, this site is football manager only so you couldnt be further off the Mark, that is why I didn’t reply. I comment to around 20 people a day, so don’t appreciate your tone. You don’t have to view the site and I can make that happen if you’d prefer.

    just signed this guy for my celtic team for 5mill (with the help of this profile). his wages where a bit high for me tho, 26k .right at the top end of my wages. i think he could be a fantastic signing!

      Will light up the SPL with ease.

  • comment avatar Vitor Simões July 6, 2012

    I found this player out on loan with Olympique Lyonnais. I decided to take him for the season since I was low on funds. He did not disappoint. He has been getting consistent man of the match awards with atleast 2 assists per game. And that is just his first season ingame! With a little time and training I do believe he can become top-class.
    Since I found myself awed by his performances I decided to check if you had any article on him. Just passing by leaving my recommendation

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 6, 2012

      OK mate, thanks for sharing…he is a very good player and if available for less than say £12 million then well worth the investment.

  • comment avatar jimmy July 11, 2012

    i signed him quite a while ago on my first season, thos os a great profile but, he doesnt cost nearly 40m i signed him for round about the 7-8m region

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 11, 2012

      He does cost around 40 mill if you have the Italian league loaded, are bidding with a well respected club in England within the first week of a new save…I tried four times in patch 12.2…he may be less in older patches but not the latest one under the rules I just mentioned which is how we base all our prices.

  • comment avatar Cal July 11, 2012

    Hi ive just signed him for my Swansea team for 8m after a couple of seasons, i play him on the AMR as an inside forward and he does seem to be doing it for me :/
    what position and role do you recommed for him?

    • comment avatar Cal July 11, 2012


      • comment avatar Darren Smith July 11, 2012

        I’d recommend AML as thats his natural position not AMR.

  • comment avatar JDinh August 13, 2012

    what kind of player instruction should we use for Gaston? n wat do u think he should work on in his individual training?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith August 13, 2012

      He doesn’t need any specific instructions…these aren’t personal player guides, just suggestions for good players, how you development will depend on your tactics and personal preferences so just train him in what ever area you want him to improve most.
