Hulk’s career history until 2017

This FM 2012 player profile of Hulk is not that of a green action figure, but to be honest his attributes would seem to represent such a monster. This guy is an absolute beast, he has excellent pace, the strength of an ox and technical ability to make any defence wet their pants. Probably best used from the right wing, Hulk can cause utter mayhem and is truly unique in what he offers, the Brazilian can also finish well making him ideal upfront. That is why I give this guy 9.5/10, the extra little bit comes from the £29 million asking price which I feel is reasonable.

Best buy rating: 9.5/10

Hey, Darren Glad to see you looked him up? He’s quite unique, no? Though you might want to know that in one of my saves Man Utd got him for 20 million euros. instead of the aforementioned 29 million. Makes him even more of a bargain, right? Since we’re talking forwards, I think I stumbled across a gem of a player for those who like to start with “mid-tablers” like me. His name is Cristian Nazarit, my scouts at Koln rated him better than Soukouna, for example. Also, Nelson Oliveira, Rodrigo Moreno, Diego Rubio, Tiago Ilori and Alex Smithies could… Read more »

His future attributes look amazing. However, I’ve been playing him as an Inside forward on the right and he’s not been as effective as I would want him to be. I even set him as the playmaker just so that he could get more of the ball. Any help?

Looking at his playing history, I dare say that he is not at his best. He played – at least – half the matches in the portuguese First League in each of the 6 seasons in your save. I don’t know if it’s due to injury or because of squad rotation policy, regardless – and this from a guy who has seen him live and many, many times in the local broadcasts – he has it in him be amongst the world’s best. Not saying he’ll be like CR7 or Messi but he can be reach Robben’s level – obviously,… Read more »

Hulk just handed in a transfer request during February of my first season, deal for 20.2 million? I’m playing as Arsenal and have Gervinho, Willian and Walcott on the flanks with Miyaichi, Rochina and Chamberlain on the rise. Thanks in advance Darren.

There is only one way to stop Hulk once he has the ball in his feet: by foul or when he decides to shoot it.

Chonger

For all of you wondering his most consistent and best position…Poacher. 56 goals in a season for me. He scores from the wing aswell but he is simply unfair if u put him as poacher.

Karl

Hulk is DEFINITELY a monster in Football Manager 2012, one of the best buys in the entire game. Hulk AND Rooney up front for my Man U team…man that’s just unfair.

andy

do you think hes better then neymar

Vitor Ferreira
Guest

in game maybe in real life hell no xD i dont even know why they made him sooooooo over skilled in the game when in real life a central back can keep him on a box…

Alberto
Guest

My favourite player irl, also loved him in fm 2011, but in 2012 he is just pure class.

Alexis
Guest

I’m Tottenham. Play with Hazard on the right, VDV, Modric,Sandro CM, and Bale on the left. Any idea on how I should be playing to get the best out of Hulk?

Arsenal Boss
Guest

Hulk is SICK!He is on my right wing.I shudder to think of what he will do upfront.He is only on the right wing because Cavani and Damiaoo are upfront for me.But I have to say,If I had to pick among those three Hulk would be my man!period!

mik
Guest

my city team, with hulk on the right is wonderful. first ten games he was reasonable, with 6.9 all the time. since he scored his first goal never stopped. my midfield is bale pastore and hulk, with sigurosson gotze and hazard on the bench.

Who should i pick for my first choice striker, hulk or aguero?

Conor

Seems like he’s got worse.

Alex

just a suggestion to all

MAKE HULK A COMPLETE FORWARD AND HE WILL BEEEEAST

that is all

55 apps my 1st season 58 goals…… need i say more?

Steven Clark
Guest

Alright Mate, Im just about the start my third season with Liverpool, I won the league in my second season and lost in the quarter finals of the champions league to Real Madrid. Hulk has no interest what so ever in joining me. any suggestions or reasons why you think he dosnt want to move?

des
Guest

Hulk has never had any interest in joining my Man Utd team. I think he just doesn’t want to go to the premier league. very sad because I would have preferred him over gotze as I feel he’s more suited because of his monstrous physique.

andrew
Guest

Just wanted to know, around how much would he ask for in wages even man utd had to approach him?

cole
Guest

Scored 59 goals for me at Arsenal my first season! Absolute monster! Playing him as an AF up top with van Persie and Gervinho on the wings as inside forwards. Definitely worth the 30 million i payed for him

gshinhar

i play him as a poacher with wayne rooney…… a perfect purchase…..

Joeyboy

Just wanted to say Darren, this is a really great site you’ve made here, it helps me loads on FM12, I don’t know what I’d do without it. Much credit goes to you for the time and effort that goes into this.

Anyways, I play James Rodriguez, Willian, Hulk, and Seydou Doumbia as AML, AMC, AMR, ST respectively. However, none of them seem to be very effective at all, so I wonder if you could possibly suggest what roles and duties I should assign to them to get the maximum out of their individually insane abilities??

Managed Porto for 5 years…. lost ONLY 2 games in those 5 years… and they both came in my 5th years lol… no draws… no save-game tactics, i swear on my life… Made Hulk worth £38m and after my 3rd year finally got him world player of the year. his 1st season he played every single game foe me, starting, and had 55 apps 58 goals…

as a Complete Forward…. you can go wrong with Hulk…. probably one of the best players in the game by far

Alex

Cant go wrong*

i sign hulk for 22 million in ( patch 12.2) i used him as posher he scored 56 goals in 56 games he become number two best player in the world for two times (number one in the two times is messi ) i sold him for Chelsea by 46.5 million.

I have Damiao in my squad. Which one should I use for poacher? Hulk or Damiao? I’m managing Porto by the way.

Wim

Hulk and Aguero are my strikers and iniesta behind them … With City … just amazing.

FredRead12

why is he only playing 15 games a year

Andre
Guest

So i’m with juventus at the second season but i already got Valencia (utd) and Krasic at right winger and Damiao alone as striker (4231) and i want hulk to play as Left Winger but don’t know if he will play beastly there or is better to take a cheaper LW like Nicolas Gaitan

FredRead12
Guest

i need a target man i have already tried leandro damiao but international are demanding £93m so his is off my shortlist for the moment

i’m in the january transfer window (2016) with Brighton and I just signed Hulk and he has scored 2 in 3 games

neramagico

Darren, I’m hoping you still check these FM12 pages because I was wondering what training schedule was used for this version of Hulk? Besides his pace and his acceleration which are each -1 compared to the Hulk I have in my game, pretty much every important offensive attribute of his is +2 above mine. And I’ve been training him individual focus on passing (medium focus) for a season and a half, too, since I got him, and even then this profile has equal passing to my Hulk and +1 better creativity. What training schedule was used for this Hulk? I… Read more »

Thanks for the response Darren, but are you sure? I may have neglected to make clear, but I didnt sign Hulk until my 2nd season, now its the third, and he’s already 27 years old in my game. I guess the question to ask now, and maybe you can help me, is what training schedule does the CPU use for strikers? I doubt the CPU downloads custom training schedules from the internet… I mean do they use just the same normal ones as come with the game for you? In other words, Hulk would have been on either General or… Read more »

I figured people would know, the developers would be able to tell people that asked. I always assumed, when you start a game everyone is on general or one of the position-specific training schedules, meaning that if you’re not managing a team, that’s what the CPU uses. But are you saying the CPU actually has training schedules that aren’t included for the player when they start the game?
