If he was 15 million or below, he’s easily a 10 for me. His mental attributes are world-class.

Alexander Tommos

Great player! Giving Yaya Banana a try right now though (such a funny name XD)


Hey I have some un-related questions for you Darren:

In my 2nd season, Wilshere, Oscar, and Honda are all on the Transfer Market listed at 15.75, 13.75, and 9.00 million pounds respectively. I am wondering who you think is better overall and who would be a better choice as one who can rotate both mid and attacking-mid positions (2 different answers I am assuming!)

Lastly, what do you think about Viktor Fischer?

Keep on keeping on!


I think to be a truly dominant centre back he may need some better stats in juping and heading. other than that though he looks like an animal that has amazing mental stats too


Damn I remember this guy from 2010 and he was solid then. He’s even better now haha.
Can I ask about profiles for Caulker and Hanley(Blackburn) – both CB’s or any british CB’s really. I want someone to partner Clarke and Jones is too expensive.
Also thanks for profiling De Bruyne. I’m sure you were going go anyway but…


What an absolute tank. Don’t like his height and jumping for a CB though but he looks like an excellent Anchor man.


I bought benatia, i must buy this guy too…awesome mental stats.

He can turn in great ball playing defender ;)

Must buy!
