FM 2014 Alex McCarthy career stats

This FM 2014 Player Profile of Alex McCarthy shows a great keeper for any lower EPL side and he’s well priced. During our test save Alex was mistreated at Man City where he failed to feature consistently from 2015 until 2018, those three years really stunted his growth. Despite that McCarthy still looks good, very well rounded attributes that with proper human management could flourish to maybe warrant a big time move.

As mentioned Alex has a lot of 15’s in our future profile, most of these could easily push to 16 or 17 which would make this kid one of the bargains of FM14 for just £6 million. Unfortunately I prefer to rate players on the evidence available so a rather harsh 7.5 out of 10 is awarded.

    rubbish

    leave him and buy Francesco Bardi instead

    I had to sell him at a loss, let in over 50 goals in a prem season

      He’s not the best keeper I know, but there are few keepers available that have potential and are available at an acceptable price.

    I’ve had a few issues since the latest patch has come out with players not wanting to come to me. I’m Southampton, and in the first season I scouted Alex Mccarthy, Anthony Knockaert and Danny Ings, my scouts said they were extremely happy to join, then when It comes to offering the contract none of them are interested? I had a play around on the editor with reputations and stuff but it changes nothing. Any idea why? Southampton are even listed as Danny Ings favourite team

      Not sure what the issue is there, maybe start up a new save with a different team (without those editor changes) to see if its the same.

    I’v had similar problems in a save..so i started a test save to experiment. scouted and offered a contract to lucas romero and he was happy to accept at the beginning, reloaded the save just before negotiations, filed up 5 midfielders through transfers and then went back to romero. same transfer bid was accepted, scout said he’d be very interested but he refused to enter talks. So i am assuming possible play time could be a criteria. Just like the real world, a player would probably think of all aspects of his future.
