Maher’s scouting report from Karembeu of Arsenal

Maher’s profile aged 25 in 2019

Maher’s career history until 2019

I am prepared to stick my neck out and say that Maher is the best midfielder on the game (from what i’ve seen anyway). 17 dribbling, 20 first touch, 19 passing, 18 technique, he even has decent finishing and set pieces. Then you have great anticipation, concentration, creativity, decision making, determination, flair, teamwork, work rate, agility and natural fitness. I really don’t know how to describe this sensational young superstar. He is the best player in the world on my game (ahead of Neymar!).  The term “wonderkid” is over used, but Maher is the definition of a true wonderkid. £13.5 million is a great price for such talent, if used correctly, Maher will carry your team. Sign him up !

Best buy rating: 10/10

    Is this done with human management? I´ve never seen him becoming that good.
    Biggest talent from Holland!

    • comment avatar Ryan Daly November 2, 2012

      Nope, CPU management :D

  • comment avatar Dean Milly November 2, 2012

    OMG!!! them stats are unreal!… the complete midfielder , who’s Xavi , Iniesta , Pirlo and Alonso ect… when there’s Adam Maher?. I’ve seen him in real life and he’s such a great talent , excellent vision , passing and a decent strike. He looks like a must buy on this version.

  • comment avatar Darren Smith November 2, 2012

    I think we tipped him to be superstar this year before the game was even released if I’m not mistaken ;)

    • comment avatar somim November 2, 2012

      nice and humble i see ;)

      • comment avatar Darren Smith November 3, 2012

        lol, just putting it out there :)

  • comment avatar Ryo Suzuki November 2, 2012

    Unreal stats! but cant say I’m surprised by his potential on the game because he’s up there with Gotze , Lucas , Oscar , Ganso , Strootman , Xhaka ect irl he’s a star in the making! I find it interesting that Holland have only capped him 16 times in your career… is that because he’s only just started getting called up to the national side in your game?

    • comment avatar Ryan Daly November 3, 2012

      Yeah I didn’t notice that, im surprised at that

  • comment avatar bogdan November 3, 2012

    He developed fantastic in the 2nd screenshot. Very similar to Xabi Alonso, Xavi or Pirlo.
    Can you do Mauro Caballero from Libertad next? I’m curious how he will turn up later in the game beacuse of his huge potential in the editor.

    • comment avatar Ryan Daly November 3, 2012

      Ill have a look at him

  • comment avatar Tom November 3, 2012

    Just wondering does his price come down after the first few seasons like a lot of players?

    • comment avatar Ryan Daly November 3, 2012

      every players price changes constantly

  • comment avatar Jamie November 5, 2012

    Unreal stats but 210k wages at 25 years old. Well I guess City you have that money as spare change

  • comment avatar Ethan November 7, 2012

    Whats his best position? Is he better as a DLP or a Adv Playmaker?

  • comment avatar dan November 7, 2012

    whats this guys best position?

    • comment avatar dan November 7, 2012

      meaning CM or AM sorry should of specified didnt read the above comment until now :d

      • comment avatar Darren Smith November 7, 2012

        AMC, just read his scout report. But it depends on your tactic really.

  • comment avatar FRodri November 13, 2012

    who is better: Wilshere, Gotze or Maher?

    I’m looking for an advanced playmaker and i would probably go for wilshere but he’s injured at the start of the game, so i’m thinking: should i wait or just go for gotze (he’s cheaper too)??

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 13, 2012

      I’d say Gotze for AMC.

      • comment avatar FRodri November 13, 2012

        Thank you Darren ;)

  • comment avatar Greg Pancoust November 20, 2012

    Just got this guy after second season in my Man Utd game. I might loan him for a season but cant make my mind up because if he plays for me with my human training might he be better?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 20, 2012

      If you can afford him the game time he’d be much better at United as opposed to on loan.

      • comment avatar Regan89 November 24, 2012

        my brothers just signed him for fulham for an initial fee of 9.25mil :O

  • comment avatar Benn December 9, 2012

    I got Fabregas and Maher in Spurs in the start of 3rd season. Thinking about getting Fabregas to tutor Maher. Not sure if a good idea or not. Fabregas is superior in all mental stats, and thats what counts, isnt it?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 9, 2012

      Tutoring can be random at times, you’d expect it to work but I get annoyed when the player refuses to be tutored and it creates a poor relationship between the two, so I can’t really comment as I rarely use that feature.

  • comment avatar Gabriel S January 15, 2013

    I can’t decide between Maher or Isco!!! they are just too good, don’t know who to sign!! :D

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 15, 2013

      They are both awesome, I think Isco can have the bigger creative impact but Maher is a much more solid all rounder.

  • comment avatar Steven February 6, 2013

    Hey Darren. I need a winger (Left and Right) that can sometimes play midfield or a playmaker. I gave up on Gotze, Dortmund won’t sell him anymore. Which one is a better choice? Isco, Leitner, Lamela, Maher, or Jovetic? Thank s.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 6, 2013

      Already answered this, please avoid duplicating comments we will see them on every post.

  • comment avatar Steven February 7, 2013

    Sorry. Can you tell me which post did it posted in. I cant find it now. I have been looking for it for awhile. Sorry again!

  • comment avatar paul April 9, 2013

    i use 4 2 4 formation have 2 inside forwrds and 2 strikers. where would he be best used? ido have 2 central mids though, 1 is an attacking mid and the other is a bwm

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 9, 2013

      In the attacking central mid position.

  • comment avatar Greg Pancoust May 16, 2013

    Reporting back on my Man Utd Save with this boy and turned out great. I would say a minor bit below than the screen above. Would give a screen but built a new rig. I have him again for Spurs (New Rig). Got him first season for £10 flat in January.(hows ya luck).Even though his stats are not what you would call world class at the time he gives them. Three of my scouts said he was injury prone. Not seen it myself yet. 10 Rating from me.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 16, 2013

      Yeah the kids obviously an excellent buy.

  • comment avatar David Borg May 26, 2013

    My Adam Maher with arsenal has developed even better than this excellent purchase

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 26, 2013

      This was with AI management so I can see him developing even further, he’s a great player.

  • comment avatar John Citizen June 23, 2013

    picked him up for a free as southampton at the start of 5th season, managed to beat city, real and man utd to sign him! absolute beast of a player

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 23, 2013

      Thats a snatch for free, he’s gold.

  • comment avatar paul gilbert July 13, 2013

    do you think yo could do 1 for a young dutch centre back called jorrit Hendrix plays for PSV

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 13, 2013

      We’ve stopped doing profiles for now, but that player is also not visible in the test saves we have, you may need to load Holland for him to appear.

  • comment avatar Ross July 15, 2013

    hmmn just got him for free in my newcastle save due to join next season (4th season) was a bit sceptical as i already have veratti Cabaye Holtby Sneijder Halilovic Maximilian Meyer and Mattheus for the centre mid and advanced playmaker positions, so its heavily stacked, but it looks like he will be a good addition, going to have to loan or sell a few next season.

    on a side note will you be doing the feature where people can recommend their own players if they have future screenshots like you did last year?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 15, 2013

      He should certainly add something special to the lineup.

      Unfortunately we have now stopped doing FM13 profiles, but come FM14 everyone is always welcome to offer their screenshots for a profile to be done, we always encourage it.

  • comment avatar Ross July 16, 2013

    Yeah it will be a nice problem to have to decide who to keep for the squad and who to sell/loan out, forgot to mention i’m also getting asamoah on a free, maybe i could use him as wing back.

    pity about that I liked the feature you did last year but still excellent work this year, always look forward to checking the website!

  • comment avatar Luke August 6, 2013

    I had a Long term Liverpool save in which i had both Isco & Maher, i never really allowed much game time for Maher as Isco was out of this world and went on to eventually sell Maher. After looking at these screenshots i am definitely regretting that decision, the guy looks phenomenal to say the least.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith August 6, 2013

      He certainly is a great player, but I too preferred Isco so if you couldn’t afford him game time its not a huge loss as Isco will have grown much more with the additional first team football you could offer as a result.

  • comment avatar Pinheiro August 7, 2013

    What do you think about Paulinho?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith August 8, 2013

      Reasonable but not developed enough in my test saves, though the CPU could have something to do with that.

  • comment avatar Joshua Murray (@WordFlyer) August 16, 2013

    Wow, he must have a much higher potential in your save. He’s good in mine, but not THAT good (age 23 right now, Summer 2017). I brought him for around 9.5mil in for the previous season after he went to Stuttgart on a free for a year (I tried to sign him on the free, but alas, he turned me down). The same Summer I also snagged Paredes on a free, so they’ve been sharing duties. Now my Sunderland team is loaded with talent. I just signed Isco this year for 60 mil. Overpaid for sure, but I needed to make a statement as the other teams around me were bringing in superstars too.

    I run a 4-2-3-1 with a rotation of Isco, Paredes, Nathan Redmond, Maher, and two Brazilian Wonderkid teenage regens (both of whom have higher potential than any of these). Fierro is my main striker. Strootman (Box to box or DLP, depending on situation) and N’Diaye (Ball-winning).

    • comment avatar Darren Smith August 16, 2013

      May not necessarily have better potential in this save to yours, probably just hasn’t fulfilled it in yours maybe.

  • comment avatar dony87 October 29, 2013

    maher or goretzka?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 29, 2013

      Depends, Maher for more attacking roles but Goretzka for more supporting and defensive roles.

  • comment avatar dony87 October 30, 2013

    i just prepare the new xavi, i have leon goretzka, sergio roberto, aron ramsey, what`s your opinion dude??

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 30, 2013

      Whats my opinion on what? I can’t see a question there. If you want advice on a player we need to know what role you want to play them in.

      • comment avatar dony87 October 31, 2013

        i need your opinion about xavi replacement in my barca with DLP/support, which one the best of them?

        • comment avatar Darren Smith October 31, 2013

          Probably Leon would be the best IMO.

  • comment avatar dony87 November 1, 2013

    thanks darren
