This FM 2012 player profile of Roderick Miranda shows one of the shock developers within this years game. To look at Miranda’s starting profile you’d probably dismiss him straight off, the defenders attributes don’t exactly jump off the screen but Pedro has shown what you could turn the CB into with the correct training and management. In the screenshot above Miranda develops his main defensive attributes, mental stats and physical skills to a great level. This kid develops into a rock at the back and while you may need to be patient he seems well worth the small asking price of £850K.

Best buy rating: 8.5/10

    This pedro chap is a bit good isnt he…he can make the most average player become amasing…

    i always look at this player n see potential (based on his 15 determinaton at the start)but never buy him…

    may change my view on him now ive seen with effort he can become quite acomplished..good work all round!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 27, 2012

      Yeah he certainly knows how to get the best from his players, I think it takes a profile like this to even realize Miranda was worth a punt.

    Well, looks like Roderick is going nowhere. I like him in RL but I always had this vibe he would not be worth the time on FM, turns out I was wrong.

    Also, can you check Dale Jennings, Darren? I have received offers from both Manchester clubs, Liverpool, Chelsea, Arsenal and Tottenham in my Bayern Munich save. Also, Tongo Doumbia, I’m thinking of getting him in order to move Schweinsteiger forward.

    Also, are they profile worthy?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 28, 2012

      Hey mate, I checked Jennings but he never develops well in my saves…maybe because of a lack of first team football or poor CPU management but he hasn’t developed from what I have seen. Doumbia is a weird player, he looks decent in my saves but that is because he plays in the French league with no human management, he may well be capable of doing great as his attributes are all well rounded but need to be boosted one or two in my save, maybe a real life manager could do that. They aren’t profile worthy though as I am missing the future profiles as proof.

      • comment avatar N.Loureiro February 29, 2012

        Thanks once again you’ve been big help.

        Doumbia will definitly join the ranks and given that England’s Big Guns wanted to pry Jennings away from my team I have taken measures and placed him under the wing of Robben.I’ll use him as the circumstances unravel. I believe it’s not a coincidence, despite knowing that it’s the CPU that manages those teams. If he turns out good I’ll post a picture of his profile, found this program Pickpic that can solve my screenshot problems.

        • comment avatar Darren Smith February 29, 2012

          Yeah I use PicPick myself, its very good and should be easy to use.

  • comment avatar Elias February 28, 2012

    Can’t you do a profile on Sandro, he looks like an absolute beast! :D

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 28, 2012

      I’m sure he’ll get a profile soon, but not until we’ve cleared numerous others that in the back burner.

  • comment avatar Didi March 2, 2012

    Do you know what kind of training this Pedro guy gives to his players? all his players are soo well-developed im super impressed

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 2, 2012

      Only Pedro could answer that, but most good schedules should achieve similar results if you offer first team football.

    • comment avatar Vitor Ferreira March 15, 2012

      I belive you must have a really good staff to train them :P, also Darren can you check Miguel Vitor from benfica also? i dont think he will be world class but he seems to be really consistent! and a bargain for sure, also Sidnei from benfica seems to be quite good in FM2012

      • comment avatar Darren Smith March 15, 2012

        Sorry neither are worth a profile due to their future profiles been below par.

  • comment avatar N.Loureiro March 3, 2012


    Got the following message yesterday after I turned on the laptop: could not boot hard drive (well, something similar).

    Lost it all…all my progress…

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 3, 2012

      Thats sucks.

    • comment avatar AzurA April 28, 2012

      Usas os treinos de alguém ou crias-te os teus ? Quais foram usados para desenvolver o Roderick ?

      • comment avatar Darren Smith April 28, 2012

        Sorry this is an English speaking site only.

  • comment avatar Arrin March 16, 2012

    not that good very moaney

  • comment avatar Arrin March 23, 2012

    not that good

  • comment avatar Zevran April 11, 2012

    Uros Cosic developed into a rock in defense,same stats as savic stefan…
    Could u also check Joel Matip he looks promising?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 11, 2012

      Sorry Cosic is not in my saves and Matip has not developed enough in any of my future games.

      • comment avatar DannyBhoy1888 April 14, 2012

        Do you think you could ask pedro to make a video/Tutorial on how he develops player so well and quickly?

        • comment avatar Darren Smith April 14, 2012

          Sorry Pedro isn’t part of the scouting team so I wouldn’t be able to ask him to anything but I saw you commented on another post he provided the future screenshot for so we’ll see of Pedro replies.

  • comment avatar Sekouaarne April 15, 2012

    Is it only me that think Joël Matip should have a profile? And god bless this blog it helped me allot, thank you Darren :)

  • comment avatar Sekouaarne April 15, 2012

    Sorry I didn’t see your response to Zevran. But I can tell you that Joël is a great future player, keep up the good work mate!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 15, 2012

      Well hopefully he will develop in one of my saves to the level you’ve seen and if he does I’ll do a profile.

      Glad this site has helped you, that is what makes doing the profiles worth while.
