Gylfi Sigurdsson’s profile in 2011 (after starting new game, patch 12.2)

 

Gylfi Sigurdsson’s scouting report from Cagigao of Arsenal

Gylfi Sigurdsson’s profile aged 29 in the year 2019

Gylfi Sigurdsson’s career history until 2019

This FM 2012 player profile of Gylfi Sigurdsson illustrates an attacking prowess. The 21 year old is a magician on the ball and his skills only get better. If you’re looking for a set piece master, a player that can provide tonnes of goals from free-kicks and 15 plus assists from corners per season then look no further. The playmaker develops well and makes it at the highest level. I think the £9 million asking price is reasonable and Sigurdsson is available for a cut down price later in the game.

Best buy rating: 9/10

where to play this guy??I’m using 442,so should I put him as an CM(ap),winger or striker?

Tim
Guest

If you train him as an AMR he is unbelievable! His crossing is so dangerous and he scores more screamers than any other player I have ever had in any FM!

Almas

Hey, I have used him as a deep lying forward, for my arsenal squad, this guy is tremendous, when he got to the age of 23 he scored 43 goals in 46 apps, including leagues, cups and european championships taking golden ball from messi and ronaldo.

With my Spurs, in 2015, only EPL stats:
Goals: 30
Assists: 28
MotM: 17
– NO JOKE! –

AMC with supporting role and (ofcourse) he takes every set piece.

He is by far the best player in my squad, and I have G.Rossi, C.Fierro, L. Moura, L.Modric, C.Tevez and some spectaculair regens.

A must buy!

Gylfi is my darling boy!I never think twice about buying him in any of my games and I don’t care who I sell as long as I am getting Gylfi.Case Closed!He is a menace to the opponent.I LOVE LOVE LOVE LOVE him!I say get him at all cost and you will NEVER regret your decision.That said, I respectfully disagree with your rating of 8.I would give him 1000/10. Ignore me! I am always excited about Gylfi.

if playing a 4321 formation with wingers, would playing sigurdson and hamsik in the middle be too attacking? i’d play hamsik as a deep lying mid and sigurdson as advanced play maker? or i’m thinking about replacing pastore with sigurdson, tell me what you think, thanks

Harry Ross

yeah i understand, willian hazard and cavani are seen as my stars, just need the others too be solid, thanks for your help mate

This guy is a total beast and absolute bargain for ANY EPL side. Insane free kick ability that troubles the opposition keeper every game, same with the long shots. He scored 2 goals on debut for my Man U save, both from free kicks. AND he counts as a home grown player in England. What more do you need? He’s an insta-start for me. This guy has been far more effective in my free kicks than Rooney or Hulk, who I have as well. This guy and Hulk are really instant buys if you have the money.

Anyway on another note, what do you think of Alphonse Areola, goalkeeper from PSG? According to my scout (20 in potential and ability judging) he’s near De Gea level!

Heresy
Guest
Areola’s Current Ability is very low, so you need to give him 2-3 seasons before he gets good enough for a starting lineup. However, after that’s he’s very consistent, his handling and areal ability make up for a fairly low rushing out attribute. A very physical player as well. 20 in strength afetr 2 seasons! Mental stats develop steadily if you give him a lot of game time. Overall, If you have a fairly old solid keeper and want to personally train his replacement, Areola is perfect for you and a bargain for what you can get in the future.… Read more »

gylfi, world player of the year in my liverpool save. He´s amazing

Adam

Best played up front as a deep lying forward in a strike partnership in my opinion

Dominated for Anji in my Southampton save and eventually became worth 44mil so couldn’t afford that :(.

His stats are brilliant though!

Gavin

From the screenshot and the game his attributes is just decent, although his set piece is very high.. Does he play better than his attributes look? I’m thinking of signing him because lots of ppl say he’s great but his dribbling/speed/flair/anticipation/off the ball doesn’t look that good..

Gavin
Guest

But what’s so great other than his set piece attributes?? Also his value is only 4,7m Hmm :/
But yeah I’ll try to sign him and see how he plays

silva
Guest

Gylfi Sigurdsson and Joe McKee are my fav players I have a great shots for both of them

Andre
Guest

who do you think is best suited for a cm advanced playmaker role? kovacic or sigurdsson?

022
Guest

If you can’t afford him, he’s version for smaller clubs is Bernardo(Cruzeiro/Vasco da gamma).

I’m looking for young cm or amc with big potential and set pieces, my options are Gylfi and Nicolas Lodeiro, Lodeiro potential is 160 while Gylfi’s 179 but Gylfi has only 10 ambition hidden attribute do you think he can reach at least 165 potential with that?

Also do you think Mateo Kovacic or Felipe Gutierrez can be trained to be good set piece takers or it will be waste of their abilities?:>

James
Guest

Darren, would Gylfi be capable of playing in a Deep Lying Playmaker role ?

James
Guest

. Would he be Good in a Deep Lying Forward role, Darren ?

J.D
Guest

Wow he turns out to be a much better player than your stat above :D i had him for 3 seasons in my liverpool save n
1st season; he scored 13 goals and made 16 assits
2nd season: he scored 20 goals and made 18 assits
Half of the 3rd season: he scores 5 goals and made 13 assits
World class!!
