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


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


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


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!!

Alex Sintean

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
