FM 2014 Thomas Carroll career stats

This FM 2014 Player Profile of Thomas Carroll shows an assist machine and passing maestro reasonably priced. During our test save Carroll honed three vital attributes that spell out his game and role on the pitch, passing, composure and creativity. This kid has the composure to hold possession, then the creativity to fashion an opportunity and the passing ability to see it through. Sure his other attributes aren’t overwhelming but they all compliment the key three.

My only worry with Carroll comes in the form of dribbling and tackling. I like my MC’s to be good at one or the other, to either pass and tackle or pass and dribble. Considering his best developed role is advanced playmaker dribbling would have been a role bonus, but its not enough to hinder Carroll as shown by the career history above. During 2018-2020 the wonderkid managed 8 goals and 27 assists for Liverpool, not bad at all for an asking price of £10 million.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 24, 2013

      They would both be worth signing for sure.

    I’ve just picked this guy up at the end of my 3rd season from Spurs for the bargin price of £75k!!!

    Didn’t really need him but for that price I couldn’t say no!

      Wow that is one hell of a bargain.

  • comment avatar neil January 2, 2014

    I know, strange thing is he was worth c£2m but was transfer listed with asking price of £76k. I’ve got a number of midfielders for him to compete with:

    Hughes
    Roberto
    Pugliese
    Cabaye (who i’m going to sell as getting on now)
    Sissoko

      He might struggle in that company but still worth it for the price as you said.
