This FM 2012 player profile of Jean-Armel Kana-Biyik shows everything you need to know. The kid develops into a beast, he has pace, strength, mental toughness and can stick a foot in. I think his athleticism would be key and he’d certainly suit any team playing a high defensive line. In his future profile the African joins Chelsea as a first team starter before becoming very popular in Spain with Real Madrid. All this and he’s available for £3.5 million. The reason for my 7.5 rating is the very poor average ratings he’s achieved at top clubs.

Best buy rating: 7.5/10

    Hi Darren enjoying the website!
    But what I wanted to bring to your attention was, that ok yes Kana – Biyik’s statistics are excellent for a centre half, but he’s average rating per game throughout his career is pretty poor. He’s played in the premier league for almost 8 years & its well below 7.00 which I believe is where it should be if your playing at a top club. Moving to Real Madrid he is also still playing under 7.00 so how does it warrant giving him a 8.5 / 10 ??

      Hey Joe, I actually agree with you but feel the reasoning for my ratings isn’t understood. I often find that the ‘career stats’ can be misleading. For starters who knows how the CPU is using that particular player and I have found a lot of great players with low ratings that don’t resemble their talent. I have turned a blind eye to his career stats because I think they are very misleading and when you ‘holiday’ through a game it could effect things like that. Having said that I had already written four player profiles before writing this one in the space of an hour and my eyes were hurting….not sure I put enough thought into the rating so will change it to 7.5/10…just so you know the best buy rating is based on a players asking price and age as well. Its basically a combination of everything. Thanks for bringing this to my attention mate.

    Was going to go for this guy but decided against it as you rated him a 7.5. You may laugh but James Tomkins is a beast. I started off as West ham, signed Wome, Bressan and a few other usual championship players. I got promoted and expected to just beat relegtion. Im sitting 5th in the table and the combination of Bressan and Tomkins is unreal. Every time a corner of free kick from Bressan comes in, its going straight for Tomkins. In january and hes already bagged 10 goals As a DC!! Thats more than some of my strikers! Aubamayeng is tucking them away too, with jali puling the strings in central midfield!
