FM 2014 Joel Matip career stats

This FM 2014 Player Profile of Joel Matip shows a no nonsense, beastly defender with the potential to play for any club in Europe. Matip is most certainly a limited defender but what he does he does very, very well. During our test save he developed amazing defensive attributes and can cover ground at pace too. The only real weak points are his composure and decision making, but his excellent ability elsewhere can make up for this. He possesses the strength and speed to get back and cover for those otherwise costly mistakes.

Performing week in week out for Schalke, Man Utd and Norwich in our test save helped confirm what we suspected, this kid is an all action CB and a real bargain for £7.5 million.

      No problem Jack, we enjoy doing it. There’s a lot more to come, another three profiles tonight, then one every hour from 10am to 10pm on Thursday and Friday…the only question is when me and Johnny will sleep but that doesn’t matter right now. :)

        1 an hour?!?! I have so much respect for you. That really is amazing

        • comment avatar Darren Smith October 16, 2013

          Thanks Jack, good to know its worthwhile for the community.

  • comment avatar Alexonian October 16, 2013

    I do love you guys and really appreciate the job you put in

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 17, 2013

      Thanks mate, works it worthwhile.

  • comment avatar Wilson October 19, 2013

    Defensive and physical attributes are awesome, cant find fault at all with those. But his mental attributes are quite horrible IMHO.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 19, 2013

      I agree, that is obvious for anyone to see. But when a player has such great defensive and physical attributes they tend to out weight the bad attributes mentally, at least that is how its worked for me in the past.

      • comment avatar Wilson October 23, 2013

        I’m generally really skeptical of signing defenders (particularly CBs) with Bravery of less than 12. I wouldn’t even look at defenders with single digits sometimes. But thats just me.

        • comment avatar Darren Smith October 23, 2013

          I can understand that, I guess if it weren’t for those incredible average ratings I would have been a little torn myself.

  • comment avatar Alex October 23, 2013

    He does have poor composure and bravery, but he compensates with the anticipation and positioning. His average rating is actually amazing.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 23, 2013

      Yep, alongside his physical stats too, its a real balancing act.

  • comment avatar Kenneth Eriksen Haneboe-Hemsley November 18, 2013

    Can you make Mats Dæhli, Vajebah Sakor, Ben Davies, Victor Andrade and Julian Brandt?
