This FM 2012 player profile of Jelle Vossen will be seen differently by various readers I’m sure. While I personally feel like his physical attributes are way too low to warrant a move, some gamers will love Vossen’s work rate, incredible mental attributes and finishing ability. Plus the screenshot above shows you can improve the strikers pace and acceleration. Which ever side of the fence you sit on, there’s no complaining about the £1.9 million asking price.

Best buy rating: 7.5/10

    I signed this guy with west ham and his mental attributes are amazing!!!!. Only need to train his strength then he is fantastic.

    In my save chelsea are bidding 14mil and I think the chairmen will take the offer into his own hands soon

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 24, 2012

      Good to know he has done so well for you, as mentioned my tactics tend to prefer a striker with great pace and acceleration so I’d struggle with him but for the right manager I can imagine him being a great buy.

    Hello, I used that player at fm 2011 and in fm 2012 too. I am totaly disapointed of him.Is unable to reach in the opposing penalty area
    In max. 2 years will make 20 composure but his behaviour look like he have max. 13 composure
    Will shoot from every position cus is unable to take a right decision or atleast an average one.For your good in an middle or higher championship you dont have what to do with such a player.look for another cus your nerves will be tested at maximum with that player.(I guess the inability to do what supose to do is the low speed that he have).

      Yeah I am not his biggest fan to be honest and agree that his quickness will be a major problem that could effect other parts of his game…but a few gamers have requested this profile so some must be getting the benefit while we aren’t meaning it must be down to tactics I guess.

  • comment avatar Rodrigo Rodrigues Dos Santos Junior April 24, 2012

    If that player can’t have atleast average performances with m.City’s midfilders hamsik and modric,sincerly i dont know with who can work better..This player is one of those who can’t ply like their atributes show.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 24, 2012

      Yeah but his attributes aren’t good, it doesn’t matter how good you are mentally and in finishing, if you can’t control the ball and beat your man you’re too limited in this game at the top level.

      • comment avatar Rodrigo Rodrigues Dos Santos Junior April 24, 2012

        look at leandro damiao, has some atributes lower than Vossen has, but his behaviour in game is amaizing

        • comment avatar Darren Smith April 24, 2012

          Yes but Damiao has good physical and technical attributes…the mental attributes are completely irrelevant if a player can’t run and control the ball which Vossen can’t and Damiao can.

  • comment avatar Rodrigo Rodrigues Dos Santos Junior April 24, 2012

    That’s why i say:Sometimes atributes can’t show what the player can do and sometimes show too much for what the player can do :D

  • comment avatar Mike April 24, 2012

    Great profile Darren! Seems like the perfect blend of Rooney and van Persie with his mental and technical attributes respectively. In my save he’s technically and physically a lot better, though so no one should be put off by his lack of pace. Also a great buy if you play way too many FM games and always tend to opt for the boring route of pacy wonderkids!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 25, 2012

      Thanks Mike, he is a weird player in that not seeing his poorest attributes would lead to thinking he’s Messiesque, but to just see his worst attributes would put anyone off…very interesting really as there aren’t many forwards that start so well endorsed with mental stats.

  • comment avatar Adam April 25, 2012

    Could you post perhaps his fellow countrymen Kevin debruyne? He’s been performing well for me, would be intrigued to see how he develops

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 25, 2012

      He is a very good player but the screenshot I have of his future isn’t good enough unfortunately, he lacked first team experience and wasn’t developed too well.

  • comment avatar MikeyBhoy May 1, 2012

    Don’t see where all the negativity is coming from…I’ve signed him a couple of times and he’s been a consistent scorer. In my current game with Celtic I haggled the price down to 800k and he led me to the SPL title and Europa League in first season and now he’s doing the business in the Champions League as well.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 1, 2012

      Different gamers, different preferences…a lot of people need a fast forward, I know I do and in that case Vossen will never be successful.

  • comment avatar Fajar Syahruramdhan May 4, 2012

    look at his concentration and tackling attributes. he is much better used as defensive striker. some teams will be benefited by this kind of role. i never use him nor the tactic though.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 4, 2012

      Yeah he does have amazing mental attributes as mentioned, only problem is most gamers prefer an out and out goalscorer with pace which this guy is far short of unfortunately so depends on what you look for in your strikers.

  • comment avatar N.Loureiro May 5, 2012

    I bought him for Chelsea to play as a Defensive Striker but his overall pace and agility did more good than harm to the opposition. During one match where Frank Lampard was injured and I was out of subs, I shifted him to Lampard’s role (Deep-lying playmaker with support duty) in my midfield, and he unlocked a very dull midfield battle, ever since, I have been using him as an alternative to Lampard and he’s done quite well. As of now I’m re-training him to a central midfield role while also training his passing. Oh, he starts out as competent in a MC role.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 5, 2012

      That is an interesting way to use him, CM’s with top mental attributes can be very successful and he certainly has that so once the passing is there he could certainly be effective.

      • comment avatar N.Loureiro May 5, 2012

        The Mental attributes were my cue. I have faith in my methods, I once turned Adam Johnson into a Box-To-Box Midfielder!

  • comment avatar ryan June 1, 2012

    unfortunately im packed out in the striker compartment for my benfica team kadlec starts then i use nelson oliveira as back-up
    and leandro could play there as well (but i like to have him sitting behind the striker)and i have yaya sanogo in my under 19s,
    niang said he wants first team football so i just had a 9 million bid accepted for him with the intention of dropping oliveira
    what would you say drop oliveira and sign niang and vossen (btw i play 4-5-1) do you think niang is a lone striker

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 1, 2012

      Niang can play lone striker fine, but Oliveira may be best keeping to be honest.

  • comment avatar ryan June 1, 2012

    thanks in that case i will leave vossen and stick with kadlec, oliveira, sanogo and sign niang he is a bargain at that price

  • comment avatar Elimist June 2, 2013

    I’ve had my best experience with vossen when he’s supporting another striker and a fast, tricky winger. With his stats, he’s never going to run past opponents effectively. However, he’s fantastic at converting pullbacks, thanks to his intelligence. A fox-in-the-box, i like to think.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 2, 2013

      Yeah that sort of role is certainly going to pull out his strengths and cover the weakness’.
