Laurentiu Branescu’s career history until 2019

This FM 2012 player profile of Laurentiu Branescu brings out both weakness and strength. You can’t really tell much from the Romanian’s starting profile but this future profile shows a lot. You can see that this kid could be the best around when it comes to communication, aerial ability and command of his own area. However, you cannot ignore the 17 year old’s weakness’ in the form of rushing out. This attributes could lead to some bad mistakes and is the only thing holding Branescu back. Then again the asking price of £900K means this kid is low risk in terms of cash. Branescu is just pushing on 8/10 but the asking price tipped the scales.

Best buy rating: 8/10

    You are correct about rushing out.
    Otherwise the punching value have to be low, because it means he will catch the ball rather than punch it away for risking a rebound.

    Rule: For gk – defend , eccentricity and tendency to punch have to be low

      You are correct, that’s what you get for rushing as opposed to stopping and think :) I’ve adjusted the text appropriately and thanks for the heads up.

        No problem, i appreciate your work with all the future profiles!

    To think I paid 5 million for this guy… but he did become my first choice goalkeeper in the 2nd season until i could get Cortois. Good keeper but the rushing out does hurt a bit when playing a high defensive line

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 20, 2011

      Just like you I use a very high def line and its a shame that great keepers like Branescu would be too risky because of one attribute.

      • comment avatar Nathan November 20, 2011

        In spite of my high defensive line most goals are conceded from crosses, and he is a decent shot stopper. I normally get quick defenders (Wilson, Prestia) who stop the forwards getting through.

    you can always put on individual training am sure if the other attributes can improve like that you can force him to controll his rushing out

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 29, 2011

      Yeah that is an option although I have found other players just can’t improve certain areas as well.

      • comment avatar Nathan December 26, 2011

        Rushing out isn’t an option for goalkeeper training – otherwise I would have

        • comment avatar Darren Smith December 26, 2011

          You’re right but improving the Keepers quickness could help slightly.

    I suggest looking at Stephane Ruffier from St Ettiene, great stas and a solid keeper. I’m Leeds in 2017 and he is brilliant, I had Fernando Henrique for my first season in prem and now Ruffier has turned Leeds into a title winning team. He is on a free in 2016 i think! Sign Him!!

    In my save at Totenham, at 20 years old, with a 5star coach and at least 30 games/season he is waay better than that. 16 reflexes and he’s altmost at 19 handling
    So I guess you have to trust him and give him some more play time

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 30, 2012

      I should hope he is better as human management should always get more from a player over the CPU’s management.
