This FM 2012 player profile of James Rodriguez shows one of the best wingers FM 2012 has to offer. He starts the game favouring an AMC position but I think Rodriguez would be best deployed from the left wing as an inside forward. This kid develops nicely to have great pace, dribbling, crossing and flair all of which are vital. But it’s in this wonderkids all round game that you have a star and at just £19 million I think Rodriguez is a great buy. His asking price can even drop so it may be worth waiting a season or so to see what happens.

Best buy rating: 9/10

Future world star right here, at his age Di Maria was still warming the bench at Benfica.
This is not a random comparison, they are alike in many aspects: Pace, dribbling, cutting inside, etc.

For Liverpool I bought this guy for 6.5 million in my second season and wow, he’s been phenomenal, took a while to break into my first team but now he’s one of the best players in the world! For a combined 16.5 million Willian and Rodriguez are simply amazing.

@Harper O’Keeffe I really hope he wants to sign at your club! In my first season at AS Roma he was one of my best players! Unfortunately I wasn’t able to sign him in the summer:(. However the screenshot of Rodriguez in the future disappoints me a little for he got these statistics at my club after only 1 year of training!

Hi Darren, i was wondering, y not set j. rodriguez as a AML (winger-attack)? he has great dribbling and crossing skills. Plus the speed, would it b btr as a winger or still as a inside forward?

Chelseaceltics

oh but if he is an inside forward, shouldn’t he be played on the right side? if i am nt wrong, his preferred foot is the left so he should be played as an inside forward on the left? just like angel di maria on the right side (since he is stronger with his left foot) in real life

James is a great attacking midfielder, use him in right wing as inside forward, so he usually cut inside an take a long shoot but he needs some improvements in his mentality atributtes

I got him at £6m in my liverpool save and my oh my, he is a beast.

gavin
Guest

I’ve tried inside fwd on the left but it doesn’t work since he can’t cut inside because his right foot is very weak, and he can’t play on the right too!! So how to make get the best from him, I don’t fancy using wingers because I want my wide player to cut inside to support my striker.

Got him for 2,9 million on my Arsenal save, absolutely insane.
