FM 2014 Erik Lamela 2020 history

This FM 2014 Player Profile of Erik Lamela shows one of the worlds top talents, used to deadly effect as inside forward with his dribbling and fast feet. During my test save Lamela developed outstanding attributes across the board. To name a few he had 19 in dribbling and 20 in flair, other high stats were achieved in long shots, technique and creativity. To be honest, he’s a complete all rounder, a rare gem that can take on his man and then finish whether its from close range or the edge of the area.

I think this wonderkids career history speaks for itself as he guided Tottenham to consecutive titles scoring 10 or more goals every season bar one and adding plenty of assists. The nearest thing to Messi this year? Could well be…just a major shame Tottenham already grabbed him, that makes the asking price a ludicrous £140 million at least and Lamela very difficult to sign. But, when a player like Lamela signs for a club like Spurs at the games start, we can simply right them off for a season. Besides, he can be available for less than £30 million after a few seasons so hold tight and keep your eyes peeled.

    He looks amazing. Reckon with a bit of training he would make as good an out and out left winger for those of us that don’t like inside forwards?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 4, 2013

      Yeah he can be very versatile down the wings with good training.

      • comment avatar RedVendetta November 5, 2013

        Excellent. *rubs hands*

  • comment avatar Jack November 4, 2013

    Wow he really does dominate from the word go. Who’s been your favourite wonderkid so far (I’d guess Balanta for you though ;) ). For me I like the two Steau Bucharest players :)

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 4, 2013

      Yeah I’d say your right, Balanta ticks all the boxes for me.

  • comment avatar christiangb November 4, 2013

    Who would be your pick for the right wing spot? Lamela vs Shaqiri ??

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 4, 2013

      That’s a tough choice, depends on what you want…if you want someone to hug the touchline more and get a cross in then Shaqiri but if you want someone to cut inside then Lamela.

  • comment avatar Gaurav Chaddah November 4, 2013

    One of the best players this year, signed him for £26 million during my 3rd season with Newcastle, he’s been absolutely insane so far and if you ask me for a bargain price.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 4, 2013

      He’s definitely one of the best players, one of few who can pull it out of the bag when a game looks lost.

  • comment avatar eightnight November 4, 2013

    Any particular reason you wrote Spurs with an apostrophe? As a Spurs (see, no apostrophe;) fan I am very happy he is on board, and looking forward to him showing Triggerhappy Andros over to the left wing and Sluggy Siggy out of the team ;)

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 4, 2013

      He is a great player indeed. As for the apostrophe that was my trigger happy clicking through spell check, didn’t register I’d done that, corrected it now.

  • comment avatar james November 7, 2013

    is he better than shaqiri ??? if you had to chose a better inside forward who would u pick

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 7, 2013

      Yes I believe he is as an inside forward, at least potentially anyway, I’d got for Lamela for the promise of what he can become.

  • comment avatar shay November 7, 2013

    what about between lamela and el shawary???

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 7, 2013

      Couldn’t say, they are both very similar in talent and style.

  • comment avatar shay November 7, 2013

    is you had the money and had to choose one who would it be??? lamela draxler shaqiri or el shrawry?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 7, 2013

      I don’t really like these questions, there is no right answer as it will vary in every single game on tonnes of different scenarios. Hence my answer, which I’ve already given you, looking at the layers on their own, I wouldn’t prefer one over the other.

  • comment avatar Matt November 13, 2013

    Could he possibly play as a false 9 up top in your 4-5-1? Maybe with a bit of training on heading?

    • comment avatar Matt November 14, 2013

      Don’t listen to me, Diego Costa is an absolute beast

      • comment avatar Darren Smith November 14, 2013

        I was going to say I wouldn’t recommend it but it would work with training. However, you are correct, Costa does look like a real beast.

  • comment avatar martin November 20, 2013

    Can you look at ryan ledson, england u17 player, and also alen halilovic

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 20, 2013

      I will profile Ledson at some point yes and Halilovic is already scheduled for Friday I believe.

  • comment avatar mvc November 21, 2013

    Typo in ‘Best FM 2014 Players list’ for this player in club name

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 21, 2013

      Thanks for the heads up, its sorted.

  • comment avatar jordan February 4, 2014

    played lamela on the right of my attacking 3 chadli erikson/sigurdsson and lamela and was ultimately disapointing in the first season eventhough i finished 2nd, aaron lennon was more consistent.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 4, 2014

      Well its absolutely insane in my Newcastle save after a few seasons.

  • comment avatar matttheyid February 4, 2014

    i have lamela as inside forward, diego costa as deep lyingforward and soldado as advanced forward! tons of goals! even from soldado.

  • comment avatar Animish February 5, 2014

    He is amazing, always managed to score against my Man Utd team and was literally unstoppable. Rightly said “Closest thing to messi in this years FM”

  • comment avatar vjcsmoke March 11, 2014

    I obtained Lamela for 38.5m from Tottenham in the 3rd season for my Liverpool side. I think he’s taking some time to settle. I wish his production would match up with Insigne. But I believe in time he will obtain really good results down the road. At the age of 25 Lamela’s stats look amazing and he is already valued at 53 million!! Just to give you an idea how good that is, at this point in time Lionel Messi is ‘only’ valued at 40.5m and Neymar is valued at 55m!

      He should be amazing given time, was for me.
