FM 2014 Jack Wilshere career stats

This FM 2014 Player Profile of Jack Wilshere shows one of the best wonderkids in FM14, Jack has everything he can assist, score and perform consistently. With probably some of the best mental attributes you’ll find Wilshere is a guaranteed performer. He also develops fantastic technique, passing and you could argue he doesn’t have a weak point. Wilshere is capable of scoring more than 10 goals a season and bagging loads of assists. Sitting just behind the striker he can play almost any role, but shadow striker and advanced playmaker are my favorite. Having said that Wilshere could feature as a playmaker from the right wing or even cutting inside.

Yes the asking price of £120 million is ludicrous, but this drops after the first season, when he can be purchased for more like £38 million. At that price I think he’s worth the investment if you have the cash.

You could sum Darren up in a few words as a 26 year old Northern lad who loves Football, Newcastle United and Football Manager. If he’s not playing FM or writing on this site, then he must be in the dog house with his very understanding wife.

    Another Gunner at City? Oh, the irony!

    • comment avatar Miles 'Uni' Smith October 17, 2013

      It’s not ironic but point taken.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 17, 2013

      Yeah they’ll be making an XI out em soon.

    Steven Gerrard wannabe

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 17, 2013

      He’s quite similar to SG, well rated as usual by SI.

  • comment avatar Darkstorm October 19, 2013

    Just train his finishing and then you’ll have best Shadow Striker…

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 20, 2013

      Even without that he’s still brilliant in that role, but an extra bit of finishing would make him lethal.

  • comment avatar Cdu92 October 25, 2013

    Doesn’t grow so much…

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 25, 2013

      No need to when you’re already world class.

  • comment avatar Oban November 5, 2013

    Would he be a good central midfielder? I feel like he would but i’m pretty new.

    • comment avatar O-Dogg November 6, 2013

      He plays world class is central midfield after a season (needs this to learn the role) as a deep lying midfield, plus his stats can go up and be far better than shown here with human managing, I play a possession game and he is a god send.

      • comment avatar Darren Smith November 6, 2013

        I agree with O’Dogg.

          Dis anyone succeeded to stop him from going forward whenever possible? I want to use him in a 3 5 2 as a DLP and a can’t with this preferred move.
          I tried to stop him 3 times to do that and no pozitive result.
          Any advise? Thanks

          Never tried but by Wilshere’s very nature I don’t see him ever changing that part of his game, he is an attacking midfielder so think you are trying to change him into a role he’ll never be best at.

          Here is now what Wenger has to say:
          http://www.totalfootballmadness.com/2013/11/13/arsenal-midfielder-jack-wilshere-set-for-deep-lying-playmaker-role/
          “His best position is as a deep-lying midfielder, where he can be a distributor. He has a good burst and vision.”

          Now i am asking the same question? How can i make him stop from going forward whenever possible ? Can you give me some advice.

          Thank you

          • comment avatar Darren Smith November 13, 2013

            I’d appreciate it if you didn’t put quotes out of context. You make it out like I am saying Wilshere will never do that in real life, which I was never indicating. All I was saying is that in FM13 I can understand why he would never be able do what you were asking of him. All you can do is try the same trick again in training, to have him trained not to get forward as often, if it doesn’t work, it doesn’t work…bar that maybe have someone with that trait tutor him, its like you think I’m hiding something from you, I don’t have the answer other than what you already know, because there isn’t one.

            Quite funny the quote you have shown though. You say you want him to not get forward as often and in Wenger’s quote (which I assume you used to prove he agrees with you) he says that Wilshere has a good burst, suggesting he should start deep and burst forward, completely different to what a deep lying playmaker is, just because he used the words deep lying doesn’t mean he is suggesting the role of a deep lying playmaker, both completely different. Seems that website has misinterpreted Mr Wenger’s comments incorrectly also…that is if we are using FM terminology, which is where you keep crossing the line and hence there seems to be some confusion.

          • comment avatar mvc November 13, 2013

            I see you like to be right . I just copied the text , it’s your words. Your are WRONG mate and maybe next time you should stop thinking you know everything and have a simple conversation not play smart and think everybody else is stupid.
            Your argument with burst is just stupid , now you are trying to say that wenger does not know how to say what he wants to say? DEEP LYING PLAYMAKER!!!
            A deep LYING PLAYMAKER has to be agile and think fast .burst does not mean to ‘start deep and burst forward’. A midfielder needs to cover ground….

          • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 13, 2013

            Mike, please calm down and stop shouting around here. We do our best to help every reader that needs help, if that’s not good enough please ask Mr. Wenger how to stop Wilshere going forward in Football Manager. Nobody said you were stupid by the way, you have to learn to accept a different opinion.

          • comment avatar Darren Smith November 13, 2013

            Mike I am simply saying Wengers version of a ‘deep lying midfielder’ will be different to that of FM’s version of a deep lying playmaker. You put my comment in context with a random quote from real life football, hence making it seem if though I was referring to real life in that original comment, so yes it was out of context.

            Finally anyone who has seen arsenal play will know one of wilsheres best traits is his running with the ball from deep positions, obviously SI would feel it unrealistic for him to happily drop that trait. I understand why you want to do it, but last year it wouldn’t work, I don’t see why me reiterating that deserved your comment including that quote which was blatantly an attempt to make me look like an idiot.

            Sorry if I came across as an ass in the last comment, it’s understandable, but I took offence to your sarcy comment, I just responded in the same manner.

            But I can apologise for replying how I did and just move on if you can.

          • comment avatar mvc November 13, 2013

            @Johnny Karp
            That is exactly what i tried last year, a conversation.

            In my humble opinion that is how i see Wilshere in the future and i tried to replicate it in FM, the reason where the question came from.

            I didn’t like something Darren said and i quote ‘he is an attacking midfielder so think you are trying to change him into a role he’ll never be best at.’ shutting me down.
            From that i understand that what i was trying is stupid, and why in the world would i want that.
            From what Darren said i was wrong and he was only referring to FM.

            If i could talk to Wenger i would be very happy

            @Darren Smith

            Wilshere is maybe my favorite player and i can say that he has more traits that running from deep but you are right , he likes to do that.

            I thought you are referring in general not just in FM that and i wanted to show that maybe i was not crazy trying to play him like that
            .
            Sincerely i thought last year you are referring both in real life and FM and i apologize for the misconception. I was just trying to justify that i was not nuts asking you that

          • comment avatar Johnny Karp November 13, 2013

            Mike, nobody said what you were trying was stupid, Darren gave you his opinion and advice, which you can take or ignore.

          • comment avatar Darren Smith November 13, 2013

            Mike, I understand we were both just reacting to comments we felt were a dig at each other, but I can honestly say last year that comment was nothing more than me explaining why I think SI made him incapable of learning that trait…I had no negative view towards what you were saying personally, just what I thought was the explanation. I certainly wasn’t trying to suggest you were been stupid for asking the question.

            I know how the written word can be read differently to how its intended, but what you have described is definitely not what I meant by it at all. If I ever come across as blunt or rude to any of our readers, its because someone is reading between the lines or has instigated something to annoy or upset me, you won’t find a friendlier bunch of people that blog about the game. I tend to reply to comments at work if I can, so people can get quick replies, that is done from my iPhone with my boss across the room, so that can also have a big bearing on whats written…all I am interested in is giving people the answers they need, anything else in between is been misinterpreted, or has been purely written on my behalf due to my schedule.

      • comment avatar Oban November 9, 2013

        Thanks for the quick reply. Great website by the way Mr. Smith.

        • comment avatar Darren Smith November 9, 2013

          No problem, glad you like it.

  • comment avatar steve December 1, 2013

    Darren you should check Paolo Dybala,Ander Herrera and Lucas Romero .

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 1, 2013

      I think we’ve already profiled Romero, but will look at the other two.

  • comment avatar Ben December 15, 2013

    Any chance of doing an Ozil one?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 16, 2013

      TBH he’s already so well developed and everyone knows his talent well so not sure there would be much point alongside the fact he’d be near impossible to buy.
