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

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… Read more »

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.

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


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!


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


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.

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.

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… Read more »

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


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


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.
