fm13 player profile, rodriguez, career stats

James Rodriguez is one of the best inside forwards FM13 has to offer. He can play centrally or out wide on the left and boasts a unique skill set. In my test save he enjoys 17 technique, crossing, long shots, creativity, composure and agility. Not to mention a few 18’s in passing, first touch and flair. To cap it all off he has good finishing and physical attributes. The real finished article and a deadly machine. All this for a very reasonable £17.5 million.

Best buy rating: 10/10

    i just can say 1 word -> AMAZING

  • comment avatar Ben March 29, 2013

    Yes, been waiting for this one :). Looks incredible and at such a good price aswell and to top things off he is pretty good at the start as well so could fit into most teams!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 29, 2013

      I think that’s key and what makes him one of the best inside forwards almost every save, his CA is so good that even the AI would be daft not to give him 1st team football.

  • comment avatar Alexander Tommos March 29, 2013

    Looks awesome, unfortunately don’t have any place for him in my super maxed Barcelona squad.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 30, 2013

      Thats a shame, he’s a real talent.

    • comment avatar tactician April 4, 2013

      whats your squad like may i ask?
      what players u have?

  • comment avatar Illyas March 30, 2013

    And considering he only played 13 league games in the 1st 2 seasons, it is plausible that he will develop significantly better under human management! Wow…

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 30, 2013

      I agree and even more shocking is the asking price, I avoided this profile for too long thinking Porto would demand upwards of £30 million.

  • comment avatar ReynoDeNavarra April 5, 2013

    Manchester United offered 20 million in real life that Porto ignored them,so 30 million for him would not raised my eyebrows

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 5, 2013

      Mine neither, but it would put me off doing the profile.

  • comment avatar step25 April 12, 2013

    hello , i want to know if ola john his worthy or not a profile?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 12, 2013

      He’s not I’m afraid, not based on our future save.

  • comment avatar Jeraldo May 29, 2013

    Can I use him as an AMR Inside Forward or Winger. I want to replace Ben Arfa in my Newcastle Game.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 29, 2013

      Its not one of his recommended positions so I wouldn’t do it personally.

  • comment avatar HJ June 8, 2013

    He was horrible in my Monaco save. I played him as an AMC and eventually dropped him he played so bad. After 16 games he had only 1 goal and 0 assists! Vastly overrated on this game in my opinion.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 8, 2013

      That’s a shame but there is the flip side that lots of people have loved this guy too…I personally never use an AMC purely because they always seem to be marked out of the game.

  • comment avatar Tommyyyy June 8, 2013

    which position is the best for him ? I would like to put him on AML as Inside Forward, would it work ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 8, 2013

      Officially its meant to be AMC but if you struggle to get that position working in general then AML inside forward should certainly work yes.

  • comment avatar Secotti June 18, 2013

    This kid may fit in trequarista role but i’ve never get the chance to try, since i’ve updated the transfers of monaco, ligue 1, financial status and reputation copy paste from PSG so the teams i manage may have lower reputation than 8500 i think, cause he’s always unrealistic for me that’s a shame :(. Secondly, i changed this boy’s natural position from amc to amr where he plays IRL and there they can get the best out of him as an inside forward i believe.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 19, 2013

      TBH we have nothing to do with using the editor or tampered databases here, we only discuss the actual game itself.

      • comment avatar Secotti June 20, 2013

        i know yo, i know :D.i just wanted to share it nevermind..still he can be used as a trequarista in his stock amc position.

  • comment avatar Jeraldo August 2, 2013

    Would you recommend him or Bale for AML position?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith August 2, 2013

      Probably Bale but comes down to personal choice and budgets also.
