This FM 2012 player profile of Xherdan Shaqiri shows the wingers explosive side. As you can see he has excellent pace, flair, acceleration and dribbling but seems to lack a few fundamental attributes such as crossing and finishing. In fact it is these two attributes alone that stop Shaqiri been rated as 8.5/10….but having said that many gamers commented offering their experience and it would seem those low attribute areas are not a worry. Either way you’ll have to wait a while to sign this kid as FC Bayern have already agreed a contract.

Best buy rating: 8/10

I can’t help but notice that he spent 2 seasons at Almeria, I may be mistaken but I don’t think they have the proper facilities to house and groom a talent like Shaqiri. Look at Piatti in RL…He’s struggling for a regular place at Valencia when at Almeria he was the king of the hill. Surely, that could hamper Shaqiri. Still, I bought him in my Juve Save after my friend’s advice. Let’s hope for the best.

In my Arsenal save he is class, his crossing and finishing are the main problem but been working on both and got his crossing up to 14 and finishing 13 and still only 22 so to me he is class

Yeah I am hoping he will get better. He is setting more goals up now then he was last year. Darren is it possible to do a Toni Kroos profile? I have him as one of my 3 centre midfielder’s and just want to see how much he would improve

Darren can you do a marco reus profile I just wanted to see if he improved.

Bought him when I was a Chelsea. Very good but he was a rather inconsistent player.

P.S. Darren, could you do a Adam Campbell of Newcastle U-19. Looks like he has potential. Cheers

Adam Cambell just scored against me and I was man city with hummels and kompany…in the first season! That surely must mean his worth something. Shaqiri is a GREAT buy for 9 m!

I bought Shaqiri for Newcastle after 6 months and he cost me around £6.5 million. I found him to be one of the best buys on the game, and within his first 6 months, he managed to score around 10 goals, and at the beginning of the next season, from right wing, he was keeping up with Ben Arfa and Demba Ba on the scoring charts, so I disagree with what you said about him being poor at finishing.

Just as you have said, he doesn’t look like a outstanding goal scorer however he is just like hazard. I bought him in my QPR save and in the first season 2011-2012 he was amazing, 34 apps 14 goals 16 assists along with 9 MOM. Just want to add that i bought papiss cisse in the first season as well and was simply amazing 25 apps 16 goals, was also injured in that for a month or 2.

Also i have Niang on the left wing as inside forward i know this is not his best position, however he is the best currently and is performing well.

Sorry to be posting left right and center, was just wondering if anyone has had either marco reus or andre schurrle, was going to buy one but no idea which is better. They both score lots in my game and are more or less the same but schurrle is 2 years younger?

James Mclachlan

I have schurrle for my Sunderland save and he is immense. I play him LM with jack rodwell inside as MC always results in a cheeky one-two through the defence and schurrle slotting home. Also he is quite competent with his headers and could quite easily be retrained as a striker.
