Nathaniel Chalobah’s career history until 2022

This FM 2012 player profile of Nathaniel Chalobah has been requested a number of times and rejected due to my lack of a good future profile. Well I think I finally found one, while the screenshots above don’t show Chabolah to his full development they are a good indicator of what he can develop into. Fantastic physical attributes, a brilliant understanding of the game and steadiness under pressure are all qualities that earned him 47 international caps in my save. I think a little more improvement technically would have seen me offer 9/10, but instead I’ll stick with 8.5 as he is available for £13.5 million and one of England’s hottest prospects in FM 2012.

Best buy rating: 8.5/10

    always like chalobah, most of the time he doesn’t develop a lot but when he does he is fantastic, him and jones are the best English defenders in 2017 on one of my saves

      Yeah I found myself very frustrated in trying to profile this kid, it took forever to find a good future profile but glad I finally got one…daft thing is he hasn’t even hit his peak in these screenshots.

    nathan ake is also a great buy but takes a while to develop but you cant get them for cheap till you can loan them

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 29, 2012

      He looks similar in starting CA to Nathaniel but I haven’t got a good enough future profile to report.

  • comment avatar Josh May 1, 2012

    His determination only 6? And in future profile it grow to 17? I think it what everybody call miracle. Oh, could you check sometimes using Serbian league to look up Uros Cosic from Red Star Belgrade? His data amazing enough for 18 years old and a very good determination (18) if i am not mistaken.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 1, 2012

      The first image is from patch 12.2 and the future screenshot is from an earlier patch which was before the players were updated so there’s a chance his determination was different…but to be honest such a young player can have variable CA and PA meaning that the determination can be different from game to game anyway.

      As for Crosic there is no player in my save under that name, we don’t load that country because very few gamers would, apologies.

        The reason he develops so much is because at Chelsea john terry always tutors him

    Hey josh

    When i returned red star belgrade to some european status still chasing there 2nd champions league there are a few players that develop well they are; Srdjan Mijailovic ,Uros Crosic(signed after loan period) and Darko Lazovic developed so well many of the european teams wanted him i believe after i left these players moved on to bigger clubs i think Crosic went to a german club

    Hi darren im intrested in this players but , i want to now if some of thema worth buying

    dl-Raphael Guerreiro- caen
    dl-Gabriel Araujo-Cruzeiro
    dr-Mattias Johansson-Kalmar
    st-Hervin Ongenda-Paris Saint Germain
    st-Kolbeinn Sigþórsson-Ajax Amesterdam

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 1, 2012

      I would just stick with the last two players on that list, Kolbeinn gets good on a lot of my saves and Ongenda depends on your development skills, so only get him if the price is quite low.

  • comment avatar vp May 2, 2012

    see lucas gaucho i dont know how much this kid grows but as a free transfer could be a very good player for some teams, what do you think ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 2, 2012

      Not good enough for a profile I’m afraid…he’s decent but no more.

  • comment avatar Bayern München May 28, 2012

    Hey Darren!

    Started a Chelsea save a few hours ago, so far im in november 2011, and Chalobah’s evoulution is fantatic! His determinaton has gone from 10 to 17!! In just a few excited!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 28, 2012

      He is an exciting prospect for sure.

  • comment avatar Tomo June 30, 2012

    Would you play him as a DM or DC?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 30, 2012

      Depends on your system really, but I’d probably go for ball winning defender.

  • comment avatar FredRead12 July 29, 2012

    who is chelsea’s captain at this time

  • comment avatar Ben August 23, 2012

    I bought chalobah when he was 16 for 2million to Barcelona then loaned him out until he was 20 and his value was 35million
    The stats are well under his potential

    • comment avatar Darren Smith August 24, 2012

      They will be under his potential as the CPU was manager and didn’t play him until too late…if your screenshots are so much better I’d like to see them.
