This FM 2014 player profile of Josef Martinez shows a cheap, athletic poacher able to get in behind. Martinez may not have the potential of say Fierro, but he’s got a good set of starting attributes and flexible potential that when maxed out makes him a deadly forward. I chose the screenshots above as they show Josef developing reasonably fast, he has become an all round striker with good technique, flair, off the ball movement and underlined by his excellent pace, agility and acceleration. For just £3.4 million you could even try him as an impact sub while you gauge just what he could become at your club.

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.
