Marc-Andre ter Stegen’s career history until 2018

Stegen is one of the best keepers on FM 2012, his distribution underlines his overall ability which includes an impressive rushing out attribute. The only real weakness comes in his reflexes and aerial ability but these are high enough to limit his errors. The 19 year old is available for £20.5 million which may be a little much, but you are getting a quality keeper for the next 15 years and his price drops to around £8.5 million after a season or two. The above screenshot demonstrates Stegen’s good development but he still has some improving to do…all I can say is I signed him with Malaga and he’s been a rock especially in the big matches.

Best buy rating: 8.5/10

ver Stegen is a wierd one… develops well in mental/goalkeeping attributes and plays well but drops in agility, reflexes and a few others after 1 season?! Don’t understand as he was happy with his training (heavy though it was)

He is a perfectionist and if he is trying to improve himself in just one of abilities , he wants to be best , so while he is improving himself , other abilities may go down..

I´m sure that with 5 star coaches he can be the best keeper of the world, dont you?

JP

He is going to be the best goalkeeper of all. I will be glad to pay 15 M for him.

would De Gea be better than this guy? His stats are progressing nicely in my game and I could make a profit out of selling De Gea and buying Stegen so who in your opinion is better?

I bought him for my 2nd year at Fulham.
We won the europa league and he only conceded 4 goals. Definitively a wonderful goalkeeper.

I just want to briefly explain how FM works. The players in the database have a fixed potential ability (PA). The values are from 0 to 200. Ter Stegens potential ability is 160, and at the beginning of the game his current ability (CA)is around 155. This means that he won’t develop as much as one would think. Petr Cechs PA is 182, and in game his CA is 177 ish. If you want a better GK talent, you should get Alphonse Areola who has a PA of 175.

bel
Guest

how do you determine the PA and CA by numbers? oh btw darren do you have any idea how to stop my game from crashing? it never happened before but now it keeps crashing at one same point.is there a bug which involves managing a country and club at the same time? i didnt manage any country in my other saves and i didnt have this problem

Arsenal bought him on my Man United save for £6million i was go gutted i missed out on that price although i have De Gea. When i first got the 12.2 patch my first game was with Inter i bid £8million for him they wanted £22million for him so i thought they just didnt want to sell him… Real Madrid picked up Rene Adler for £5million straight away, £5million??!!! and it gets better, before the second season begun Arsenal bought Adler from Real for £2.5million!!? WTF? then a couple weeks later they bought ter Stegen. now they have ter Stegen,… Read more »

Hey man, I signed ter Stegen, and in my game he had a minimum fee release of 10.75.. easy for me, 10.75 mil, over 24 months payment = mine!
Bought he as soon as I got promoted to the premiership for West Ham; i thought i’d show you his screenshot, apart from positioning stat I believe my ter Stegen is BETTER and he is 3 seasons younger, definately much better physically

Just got ter Stegen in my third season with Villa. After trying to sign him for 10+ mill all last season they end up offering him to me in preseason for 4.5 so i accepted. my question is though what is the best way to play him? would he make a good sweeper keeper? I play a high defensive line normally, also any tips on how to use his good distribution?

Ross
Guest

as always thanks for the reply Darren, I’ve never really used the sweeper keeper before so I might give it a try might also give him kick throw to see will his good distribution start some good counter attacks.

Got this guy for 5 mill in my liverpool save, he is surely gonna be a worthy replacement for reina when he decides to put the gloves on the shelf :)

Gladbach always gets relegated on my saves so after one or more seasons he becomes cheap…
As bayern I need a backup for neuer, should I sign an older and developed goalkeeper or should I get a younger goalkeeper like him and keep doing rotation? Bcuz neuer’s not very old himself, and as some people mentioned above ter stegen doesn’t develop a lot but he’s available cheap…
And fm13 comes out in 6 days!!!

Him and Butland, who is better?

Midway through the second season of my save (So shortly after the 2012/2013 January transfer window has shut) he had a £1.6m release clause for offers from clubs from a higher division and I bought him (Obviously Monchengladbach were relegated in the first season). The reason why is because he got offered a new contract after they got relegated and I only got alerted to the clause like 7 months later.

Oh well, just though to mention it for people who still play the game.
