FM 2014 Jack Butland career stats

This FM 2014 Player Profile of Jack Butland shows a future England International goalkeeper. He’s Well rounded and develops to be consistent. As with all keepers the main problem is giving first team Football early on, Stoke failed to do this during our test save. For the first two years Butland barely played and this will have effected his development. But attributes like aerial ability, communication, handling, concentration and jumping still reached 16 or above. Other key attributes hover from 14 to 15 so this kid can play to the highest level and human management will only see him get better.

The only weak points that may not rise enough even with training are throwing and rushing out, but you can stop him throwing as much in your tactic and avoid leaving a big gap between your keeper and defence to avoid him rushing off his line. If you can’t do the latter I don’t think it will cause too many issues. Costing £35 million you can bet we didn’t profile Butland for his asking price, but it will drop as the game goes on.

    Played every game for me when on loan at Leeds. Possibly the best keeper in the Championship by far in the season just gone. Considering buying him if I can. Finished 2nd and won the Carling Cup so there could be a possibility he wants to sign.

    If you’re wondering how he’s on loan with Leeds.. I have the LFC Marshall update. Him and Wickham were amazing for me!

      He could be brilliant if given the game time, that has been the issue in most of my saves, not enough time on the pitch.

    Got him for 15m on one of my saves with Southampton (first season) he was very very solid and used him from the start, he improves very quickly as well
