This FM 2013 Player Profile of Wilfried Bony shows a versatile forward with bags of strength. Bony can do the poacher role very well, but he also adds a very unique quality to the role that isn’t found in most, strength. Yes his favored role is that of a deep lying forward but when a player develops 19 in off the ball movement, great finishing, first touch and great speed he can certainly do the role of a lone poacher to great effect.

The screenshots above are from AI management, so imagine what he could be if trained and raised well under human management. Not exactly world class but a very special asset in my opinion, only advice is to wait until the £20 million asking price drops.

Best buy rating: 8/10

    This guy is great, he was amazing on fm12, but looks even better here. If only he was a little better in the air, then he would be amazing.

    Bony is great. I was thinking of buying him to my LFC save. But Borini is just sooo good. Have you tried him? Maybe I can provide some screens? I’m finishing 3rd season.

      If you can provide amazing screenshots then we could profile him, otherwise he’s too much at the very start of the game for my liking, but it all comes down to development at the end of the day.

    What I like about Bony is that he could be a great poacher as well as a Target Man sort of player, he has some excellent attributes and if he had human management he could be even better.

      Yeah I think that’s what first drew me into the idea of profiling him, such versatility can be vital for specific tactics ie Declan’s 4-3-3.

  • comment avatar DM February 16, 2013

    In my Vitesse save he bagged something like 42 goals in 38 games in all competitions in my first season , he’s an absolute monster.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 17, 2013

      He is a monster and looks more than capable of eating up the Dutch top flight.

      He doesn’t know, TBH I think there are many, many better ST options so don’t panic.

  • comment avatar Billy Brown April 9, 2013

    I bought Bony for my Tottenham season for 15 Mil and he has scored 16 in 18 games so far. Worth every penny

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 9, 2013

      Thats good to hear, he does seem like a real monster.

  • comment avatar DNV May 28, 2013

    Don’t buy him too soon. In my game, I made him unhappy with Vitesse. And then, I bought him with a price of 12.5M Pounds :D

    • comment avatar DNV May 28, 2013

      He didn’t score too many goals but he played an important part in my tactic ;)

  • comment avatar Secotti June 19, 2013

    what about the so called “african neymar” aubameyang?looks like a ready lad that can play from the day one for even top flight clubs. Have you ever get a good profile of him?i wonder if he can get his technical atts some better.his physicals are probably unmatched for the 2-3 years from the start.
