This FM 2013 Player Profile of Paco Alcacer deserves one word, awesome! Alcacer is a true talent, a poacher to dream of and any managers goal machine. For £14.5 million you’ll have a forward can develop 19 in agility, off the ball movement, finishing and 17 in acceleration, technique and first touch. I have signed some insane regens in my time for a 4-5-1 that cries out for the perfect finisher and I can honestly say this kid would be bought ahead of some of my best acquisitions.

Best buy rating: 10/10

    Good as Deep Lying Forward?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 17, 2013

      He could do the role yes, but it would be a waste of a prolific goalscorer IMO.

      • comment avatar LmFaO June 17, 2013

        could you suggest some clinical deep lying forwards?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 17, 2013

      Not to be funny but I don’t see there been such a thing as a clinical deep lying forward, their job isn’t to be clinical they drop back and link up play, thats why I don’t like to use the role. Just search for the appropriate attributes required then search from there is my recommendation if you really want to use the role.

      • comment avatar LmFaO June 18, 2013

        1) By a “clinical” deep lying forward i meant someone who has good finishing and composure… i wanted a young striker who developes in the future, so i cant search the requirements cause hes attribute might be low right now and i dont know if he would develop into a world class player…

        2) I have Jovetic with my Arsenal save, he scored 36 goals in 41 matches and also was the leading goal scorer in the league… and he played half of the games as an attacking mid… so it doesnt entirely depend on the role of that player, it also depends on the instructions you give the player and the team…

        now it again comes to being clinical.. Jovetic couldnt have scored that much if he wasnt clinical… so that makes him a “clinical” deep lying forward…

        • comment avatar Darren Smith June 18, 2013

          I see, well Alcacer would be an option then, or even Fierro. We haven’t profiled a deep lying forward that is clinical in front of goal as yet, so you’d need to find the nearest thing which is probably these two.

        • comment avatar dpk04 June 21, 2013

          For clinical dlp go for neymar, rooney or lewandowski.

          • comment avatar Darren Smith June 21, 2013

            He already said he wanted someone to develop so those wouldn’t be an option.

  • comment avatar Robert June 17, 2013

    Better than ademilson?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 17, 2013

      Both very similar TBH, it would vary from save to save and both need developing in different ways, but looking at this future profile he could well be.

  • comment avatar MrGlenn June 17, 2013

    I had Cavani as a deep lying forward on support on a Tottenham save. He scored over 20 goals in PL.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 17, 2013

      And I’m sure you could say the same for Messi, Ronaldo and Falcao but most gamers can’t afford them, the sort of players that score in any role, they are so limited.

      TBH I think your comment sums it up, one of the best strikers in the world should be scoring more than 20 in the PL so obviously that role doesn’t get the most out of prolific strikers, which was my point.

      The only player I got to do decent in deep lying forward was Jovetic with Arsenal, he got around 20 goals but anyone below world class just didn’t score enough.

  • comment avatar Alexonian June 18, 2013

    He is such a bag of potential, Ademilson was my first love in Fm13 but Paco is my new one, bought him at the start of the second season and he made a few appearances, the season after he started 20 games as Aguero suffered an injury and he did impress right away.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 18, 2013

      He does seem to have all the makings of a quality poacher.

  • comment avatar COOL GUY June 18, 2013

    I would buy him but i think he’s kinda expensive for a young kid.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 18, 2013

      I disagree, you have to sum up what he will bring to the table and re-sale value when looking at asking prices, which makes this kid well priced IMO.

  • comment avatar panagiwths June 18, 2013

    Ive got some interesting sc for you tell me how to send them to you….for example better profil for chalobah…the amazing loftus-cheek and if you want some players from pro’s update like spanoudakis maldini joe van der sar hachim mastour;)

  • comment avatar dpk04 June 21, 2013

    Only if he had better heading then i wiuld have brought him instead of cavani.

  • comment avatar Benzema July 6, 2013

    like david villa in his best days …when hi play for valencia

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 6, 2013

      I can see that, but I think Villa could create more of his own chances and had that little bit more magic in his best days.

  • comment avatar Ronin winter July 15, 2013

    Who would be better Paco alcacer or yassine benzia

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 15, 2013

      That’s a tough one but I’d probably go for Alcacer myself, only because I have deadly finishers in my tactic.

  • comment avatar Francesco July 15, 2013

    can you profile Judivan (17 years old, Cruzeiro)???

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 15, 2013

      Sorry we have stopped profiling for FM13 now.

  • comment avatar Francesco July 15, 2013


    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 15, 2013

      Interest in the game is dying down and we are now talking about possible talents for the next edition. We feel like we’ve profiled more than enough players and we are starting to run out of great screenshots. Don’t worry we’re not going anywhere.

  • comment avatar bbbb December 20, 2013

    I Can’t Find Him In My FM14 WHY ???

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 20, 2013

      Maybe because you don’t have a large database loaded.
