FM 2014 Yassine Benzia career stats

This FM 2014 Player Profile of Yassine Benzia shows a versatile forward with great speed, agility and deadly poacher skills, not to mention he’s cheap. Benzia may be best used as poacher but he’s very versatile and could feature equally as well in the roles of advanced forward, complete forward and deep lying forward. During our test save the Frenchman developed fantastic physical attributes, well rounded mental stats including good flair and a good all round technique. His strength comes in the ability to do almost everything, Benzia’s game really isn’t limited to one style or outlet, he has a bag of tools at his disposal.

I do think he could develop even further under good human management, if that were to happen we’d see the finishing and composure among other attributes rise to 16 or 17, this would make Benzia look the real deal.

    How about that Kevin Volland? Still as good as last year?

  • comment avatar Balraj October 17, 2013

    Ok I write this in every player profile bu Norwich? seriously how are they affording all these players ?!

    • comment avatar Johnny Karp October 17, 2013

      There was a takeover at some point and they got a rich chairman. They also have the likes of Welbeck and Zaha in the squad, quite impressive. Despite that the best they could do was a 6th place in 2019.

  • comment avatar Fans Know Best October 17, 2013

    Seriously?! I would love to see the Norwich squad!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 17, 2013

      They have some amazing players, most are the ones we’ve shown but Johnny just mentioned some more in the comment above.

    I remember in Fifa 14 i played a 4-4-2 in my second season as Fulham, and had this little dude and Carlos Fierro as the strikers, I mean except for the top 5 teams, they would average a hat trick in a game every 5-6 games or so. Incredible players.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 22, 2013

      Both have been brilliant for the last few years in FM too, great acquisitions.

  • comment avatar Ibra November 6, 2013

    Question for you Darren. What are the ranges of the flexible PA values? such as what is a -10, and what is a -9? Because I thought they were in increments of 20 ie, 180-200 for -10, 160-180 for -9. Because I think on your Balanta profile you say -10 is 170-200. So they overlap now?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 6, 2013

      I thought the same as you, but turns out we were wrong. Another reader pointed it out the other day and after searching it would seem other respected sites would confirm that. So they do overlap by 10 and have a variance of 30.

    What about Neal Maupay?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 11, 2013

      Not quite improved enough in my test save unfortunately, but he looks worth buying if you invest the time to develop him.

  • comment avatar devilisher November 30, 2013

    i got him on a free transfer at age 21…really good player at this age. Still play him as rotation but his rating are good when he played.
    Sorry for my bad English… cheers from FM player from Indonesia.

  • comment avatar Hadi December 9, 2013

    He went to Lorient on loan in 2015 just like my save lol. I remember I got him twice on loan once in the start of the game where he was just 17 and finished with 29 goals in the League (!!!) and again in 2015-16 season where he got me 17 goals and helped my win my first Ligue 1 title

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 9, 2013

      He’s a really good option from the first season and could be instrumental if developed well at any level.
