    William Lawrence (Torquay) turns out awesome after a couple of seasons… pretty cheap too

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 21, 2012

      He’d never make it at the top though and that is what this list is for, we aren’t scouting for lower league players.

      • comment avatar alex December 3, 2012

        Have a look at el shaaway from ac Milan/, surely a top class wonder kid

        • comment avatar Darren Smith December 3, 2012

          He is but not got a save that shows him off yet.

          • comment avatar alex December 4, 2012

            Ah, alright what about Bertrand traore, Chelsea, Oscar, oriel romeo, shawcross, connor wickham, zaha, James ward prowse?

            Sorry for the long list but I really want to know how these guys develop

          • comment avatar Darren Smith December 4, 2012

            Out of them only Shawcross and Oscar has developed very well in my game. The rest weren’t treated so well in development but I’d be surprised if Ward Prowse, Wickham and Zaha can’t be great with human management.

          • comment avatar Alex December 4, 2012

            Okay, Thank you :D!

  • comment avatar Chinmay October 22, 2012

    This list will keep on growing, right ? Jordan Ibe , lloyd Jones , sterling ,yesil , shelvey , from liverpool :-) also coates from l’pool not sure about his age thought . And fabian delph maybe …..

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 22, 2012

      Yes this will continue growing every day for the first few weeks, then maybe every other day after that.

  • comment avatar Chinmay October 23, 2012

    I plan to start a LFC save , a 4 2 3 1 formation . I need a winger along with sterling . Who do think is better from ricordo kishna and fischer ? Or any other young winger you wil recommend ?left or right does nit mater as sterling can play at both . I started playing fm since last year and your list helped me a lott , hope they ate great this year too ..

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 23, 2012

      I’d go more for someone like Rodrigo, Belhanda or Lamela if it were me.

  • comment avatar matty October 25, 2012

    how good does carlos fierro get he was pretty epic last year

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 25, 2012

      You can see that by clicking his name in the list above.

  • comment avatar aruss October 25, 2012

    Can you do profiles of Adryan, Mattheus, and Jores Okore? All wonderkids for super cheap at start (can buy all 3 for 3 mil total)

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 25, 2012

      I don’t have a good enough future profile for any of them yet I’m afraid.

  • comment avatar Boss October 25, 2012

    Bashkim Kadrii, Emil Larsen and Lucas Andersen are all pretty good wonderkids

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 26, 2012

      Thanks we will take a look at them.

  • comment avatar FM God October 26, 2012

    Can u post the profiles of Rafinha , Gerard Deulofeu , Sergi Roberto , Jean Marie Dongou , Marc Muniesa (Barcelona) and Stevan Jovetic (Fiorentina) ? I can’t wait to see their attributes ! Thx forward . . .

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 26, 2012

      I’m sure we’ll get round to them yes.

  • comment avatar Ard October 26, 2012

    Hey Darren,

    First I want to thank you and your team(again) for the work you are doing.

    I think their are some pretty good players in the Dutch youth teams of Ajax and Feyenoord like Denswil (Ajax), Lucas Andersen (Ajax), Kongolo (Feyenoord) and many other players. So I want to ask you if some of the players will become good enough for a profile.

    I dont know if they will be visible in your database but thank you for your time and effort, Ard

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 26, 2012

      No problem Ard, its our pleasure.

      As for the Dutch youth players, I’m sure we will get round to them eventually. Some aren’t visible while others may seem pricey for the need product you receive, but we’ll get to them eventually.

  • comment avatar Chinmay October 27, 2012

    Alen Halilovic from Dinamo ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 27, 2012

      Not visible without the Croatian leagues loaded from what I can tell I’m afraid.

  • comment avatar Catman October 28, 2012

    There are some great young players playing for the Norwegian side Rosenborg. The most promising in my opinion are Ole Kristian Selnæs, Jonas Svensson, Fredrik Midtsjø, and ofcourse Mikkel Diskerud whom you have already added to the list. Also, I think Thomas Drage from Tromsø deserves a look. Some of these players might not be visible on your save though. Thanks for the great list, it has helped me a lot.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 28, 2012

      No problem, as you mentioned most of them aren’t actually visible without the nations loaded so we can’t profile such players.

  • comment avatar Oscar October 29, 2012

    Chamberlain?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 29, 2012

      Very good but not got a good enough future profile to do him justice yet.

  • comment avatar Timothy October 30, 2012

    Hi,

    firstly, I would like to thank Darren and the whole team for such a quick and accurate list of the FM 2013 players.

    I would just like to suggest that Iker Munian may easily surpass the ability of Neymar. Just by simple comparison between the two, Iker Munian has greater creativity and work rate and is a year younger too! Perhaps Munian could be better than Neymar?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 30, 2012

      Thanks mate, glad the profiles have helped.

      As for iker, he is a great player but don’t see him surpassing neymars potential tba.

  • comment avatar Simon October 30, 2012

    Hi Darren and the team, thanks for all your great work!

    Just a quick question, I don’t have the BETA version yet but I wouldn’t mind knowing if Jules Ntcham (Manchester City) is on the game? He’s only 16 years old, thanks.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 30, 2012

      He is, pretty good too but takes a lot of developing.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 30, 2012

      He’s nowhere near that standard in any of my saves unfortunately.

      • comment avatar Tijmen Stronks October 30, 2012

        Lol it seems like players in your saves don’t develop.

        Do you have any idea when the editor is out? (So we can see the CA/PA)

        • comment avatar Darren Smith October 30, 2012

          Players do develop, just not the ones that are been asked about. Editor is out with the full version if you play the game that way.

          • comment avatar Tijmen Stronks October 30, 2012

            So the editor is out on November 2?

          • comment avatar Darren Smith October 30, 2012

            That is when the full game is released so yes.

  • comment avatar Phil October 31, 2012

    Yet again you and the team have created a great list.

    Just wanted to ask if Mason Bennett from Derby turns out any good?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 31, 2012

      He looks very promising, probably too young in my save to tell though.

  • comment avatar Chinmay October 31, 2012

    How are Coates and Lloyd Jones , both from Liverpool ,thanks :-)

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 31, 2012

      Just average IMO.

      • comment avatar Chinmay October 31, 2012

        Thanks ;-)

  • comment avatar Tijmen Stronks October 31, 2012

    Who are the biggest talents on AMR and AML? I’m searching for the new Ronaldo (with ManUtd) and I can’t find an ultimate talent. Can you suggest anyone?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 31, 2012

      All our properly researched suggestions are in the list above, but more will follow.

  • comment avatar Rodrigo VF October 31, 2012

    Raphael Guerreiro, French, left wingback, Stade Malherbe Caen.

    Angelo Henriquez, Chilean, Striker, Manchester United.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith October 31, 2012

      Neither are visible in my future save.

  • comment avatar IHaveSomeFriends November 1, 2012

    What about jules ntcham and Marcos Lopez of Manchester city

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 1, 2012

      Ntcham is decent but never progressed enough to get a profile and Lopez isn’t even in the game for me come 2019 which is usually an indicator of poor quality.

  • comment avatar asd November 1, 2012

    Arkadiusz Milik, big talent from Poland.

  • comment avatar Indadept November 2, 2012

    What about Christian Eriksen? How is he looking in 2019?

    And Viktor Fischer??

    Both from Ajax.

    Thanks a lot for the list :-)

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 2, 2012

      Eriksen is handy, but we haven’t profiled him yet due to the asking price. As for the other he can develop well if nurtured but my future screenshot doesn’t do him justice.

  • comment avatar Keith November 2, 2012

    hi can u do a review on emre can who is with fc bayern?

    thanks

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 2, 2012

      We will add him to the list of players to look at but from memory we don’t have a good enough future profile form him I’m afraid.

  • comment avatar IHaveSomeFriends November 2, 2012

    Joan roman from Barcelona B

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 3, 2012

      He’s not good enough I’m afraid.

  • comment avatar El Ullo November 3, 2012

    Jetro Willems from PSV

  • comment avatar El Ullo November 3, 2012

    and Adam Maher from AZ

  • comment avatar Ard November 3, 2012

    Will Isco from Malaga be good enough for a profile?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 3, 2012

      Most certainly, we’ll definitely be profiling him.

  • comment avatar JakeyBoy November 5, 2012

    Is there anyway you could do profile on Borini? in my 1st season at lfc he has scored 38 goals in 50 games with 18 assists and 9 POM also an average rating of 7.82
    cheers

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 5, 2012

      I’m afraid not, everyone knows him and the only reason for a profile would be to show some form of incredible improvement but we have in evidence of that in our saves I’m afraid.

  • comment avatar JakeyBoy November 5, 2012

    ok no worries cheers the only other player I’d be curious about at the moment is Iker Muniain?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 5, 2012

      He looks very very good, but my save doesn’t do him justice at all…I will wait before profiling him.

  • comment avatar Chinmay November 6, 2012

    How about Raphael Varane frim Real Madrid and Samed Yesil from L’pool ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 6, 2012

      Varane will get profiled at some point but we lack screenshots to do Yesil justice unfortunately.

      • comment avatar Chinmay November 6, 2012

        Ok , just a question , the profiles of the players in the above list , they are by computer management , right ?

  • comment avatar FRodri November 6, 2012

    what about Jetro Willems from PSV and Martins Indi. They have massive potencial in my game

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 6, 2012

      They haven’t reached their potential in my save so I certainly won’t profile them but maybe someone else will.

  • comment avatar Cimegs5088 November 6, 2012

    I’m at 2020 with LFC, and Luke Shaw from Southampton (i think?) should be included in this list. Villa’s Mcgreath (or something like that) is great too, he’s playing for MU in my save game.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 6, 2012

      I’m not sure on the second player but Shaw has developed terribly in my save so unless you can provide me with a screenshot of his profile and career history I couldn’t profile him on the details I have.

  • comment avatar Aco November 6, 2012

    what`s is about alvaro vadillo age 17 from spanish outfit betis

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 6, 2012

      One of the other scouts is doing a report on him later.

  • comment avatar FRodri November 8, 2012

    doria from botafogo?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 8, 2012

      He looks promising at the start of the game but hasn’t improved much in my save, so I won’t be profiling him until I find a save where he’s done better.

  • comment avatar Josh November 9, 2012

    Could you tell me how Muriel from Udinese and Iturbe from porto do?

    Also surely El Sharaawy and Veratti and James Rodriguez should be on this list?… how do they do?

    thanks :)

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 9, 2012

      Muriel isn’t visible in my future save for some reason but Iturbe does reasonably well and seems like he could progress better with human management.

      This list is not just for players it goes on price and whether we have good future profiles too, we don’t throw any name into a list like everyone else, we profile each and every individual which takes time. The players mentioned can be very very good and I’m sure they’ll get a profile eventually.

      • comment avatar Josh November 9, 2012

        pity about Muriel… also who do you reckon becomes the most impressive CM that can defend (like Lars Bender or Tiote or whatever)

        but ya sorry i know that you take price into account and all, but if i remember Veratti could be bought under 20m or so i think and here is a future screenshot of him, he looks mint http://666kb.com/i/c8styez5cxrkfhbyj.png

        Sahin is also worth a big shout, hows this for development –> http://666kb.com/i/c8t1ed0tdnlh3asi3.png

        • comment avatar Darren Smith November 9, 2012

          I didn’t say they wouldn’t get profiled, its just that having signed for a side like PSG you can assume he’ll be very expensive and almost impossible to sign straight away, so other players need profiling first.

          As for the best CM defend, I think Bender is probably up there, but I really like Fellaini too.

          • comment avatar Josh November 9, 2012

            ok thanks a lot :), bender is looking to fit in my united side :)

            but on a test save i bought Veratti for 18.2 million i think, but you right and it is very often the case, usually very tough to sign them

            and one last one please :) im looking for a top young left footed inside forward to play AM(R) I was thinking of getting Lamela and training him to play there if he can… but who else is super top :)

            thanks again darren

          • comment avatar Darren Smith November 9, 2012

            Rodrigo from Benfica, hands down.

  • comment avatar P. Rubio November 11, 2012

    Who is better Kyle Walker or Mattia De Sciglio?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 11, 2012

      I personally prefer Walker.

  • comment avatar malecki November 11, 2012

    delofeu from barca b is a 5 star rated player as is vadillo

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 11, 2012

      I’m sure they are in comparison to the players in your squad (that is how your scouts rate players.) And when we find profiles that do them justice we’ll have a report for sure.

  • comment avatar SSG November 11, 2012

    Herman Stengel from Stabaek and Lucas Ocampos from Monaco. Both are brilliant. You should check them out ASAP

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 11, 2012

      Stengel will never be profiled as he isn’t visible without Norway loaded. We’ll do Ocampos when we have a future screenshot to do him justice.

  • comment avatar Alex November 11, 2012

    Doing a little editing for FM2012, i made west ham the richest club in the world. I decided to use the FM2013 list of wonderkids to find the best young players, but i also want marquee signing to prove i mean business. i won the league and FA cup double in my first season, and i recently bought Ander Herrera. i am now after Mario Gotze, so the question is: would you pay 60 million+ pounds for Gotze, or would you recomend someone who is already an established star, but is better/cheaper?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 11, 2012

      You should use the relevant list, which is the FM12 wonderkids list.

  • comment avatar Alex November 11, 2012

    I have already tried to sign Neymar, who is my top target, but he knocked me back, saying he didnt want to negotiate with West Ham. i could go for Oscar/Lucas, but what im really looking for is a world class player who is young but could also make an instant impact, and wouldnt mind signing for west ham

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 11, 2012

      I can’t tell you who will and won’t sign for you but you need to look at the FM12 list not FM13.

  • comment avatar Ryan November 11, 2012

    Can you take a look at Tom Ince from Blackpool really good youngster England U21 Been alot of interest from top Premier league clubs

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 11, 2012

      He should be in the list above.

  • comment avatar Jupiter November 12, 2012

    What about Alvaro ( Getafe) and Gergi Milanov (Ltiex) ?

    • comment avatar Jupiter November 12, 2012

      Georgi Milanov (Litex)
      Sorry!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 12, 2012

      Both look good but haven’t been developed well enough by the CPU in my save so we don’t have good enough future screenshots I’m afraid.

      • comment avatar Jupiter November 12, 2012

        Ok!Thanks!

  • comment avatar Lasse November 12, 2012

    Look up Oliver Torres from Atletico Madrid. He look quite good.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 12, 2012

      Certainly has talent but there are a few too many areas that are poor and the CPU hasn’t done enough to improve them in my future save.

  • comment avatar Chinmay November 13, 2012

    Jordan Ibe from Liverpool ? and maybe shelvey ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 13, 2012

      Shelvey is quality and will get profiled at some point but Ibe hasn’t developed enough as yet.

  • comment avatar Chinmay November 13, 2012

    one more question , any director of football you will recommend ? or any article about that ?

  • comment avatar Fábio Morgado November 13, 2012

    what about Ola John from Benfica and Sterling from Liverpool?Are they top class?And paloschi and Sanogo?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 13, 2012

      Sterling is very good or at least he should be, just hasn’t progressed well enough in my save to do a future profile.

  • comment avatar Tic-Tac November 14, 2012

    Hey Darren how does Mauro Caballero’s profile turn out? He plays for Libertad in the Paraguay division and looks a right talent!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 14, 2012

      He’s not good enough I’m afraid, not compared to most forwards I’d see as wonderkids anyway.

      • comment avatar Tic-Tac November 14, 2012

        How does that work? because the guy has a PA of 170… does that mean that he possibly isnt getting enough game time and the club has poor training facillities or what?

        • comment avatar Darren Smith November 14, 2012

          I don’t use the editor or any kind of in game editor/tools so I can’t comment on his PA, all I know is he’s never developed well in my game and doesn’t seem all that good to me. PA isn’t everything, there are a lot of other hidden attributes that will effect his growth, not to mention the CPU may always struggle to develop him.

  • comment avatar FRodri November 15, 2012

    Could you tell me if Leon Goretzka is any good?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 16, 2012

      Definitely, get him snapped up!

      • comment avatar FRodri November 17, 2012

        Thanks for that.
        By the way, speaking on defensive midfielders, what do you think of Tomás Podstawski from FC Porto?

        Cheers

        • comment avatar Darren Smith November 17, 2012

          If his name is spelt that way he’s not visible in my save, maybe because I don’t load the Portuguese leagues.

          • comment avatar FRodri November 17, 2012

            Yes, it is spelt that way. You should definitly load the portuguese league ahah ;)

            Keep up the good work, my friend.

  • comment avatar Adam November 16, 2012

    Hey Darren, what’s your opinion on Fellaini this year? By far the best player in the game in my opinion. I’m having great success playing him as a Target Man plus he is a beast in midfield.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 16, 2012

      Incredible player, I’m writing an article on my experience with him for Soccerlens, should be published next week.

      • comment avatar Adam November 16, 2012

        I look forward to it!

  • comment avatar PKAL November 16, 2012

    is stephan jovetic a good signing for newcastle for the position of lw in the first season?

    • comment avatar Adam November 16, 2012

      He’s a quality signing for the left wing, especially if you play him as an inside forward. I’ve always thought he’s a bit too expensive though for what he brings, considering the wealth of options available for that position. Have a look at Lorenzo Insigne, Erik Lamela, Rodrigo, or even Alan Dzagoev.

    • comment avatar Adam November 16, 2012

      Have you tried playing Demba Ba in that position?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 16, 2012

      I certainly think so.

  • comment avatar Bradders November 20, 2012

    Ciaran Clark of Aston Villa and Ömer Toprak of Leverkusen both played as ball playing defenders (covering) for Arsenal on first season and achieved 7.2+ average ratings for first 4 seasons. Both Quality and can each for under 10 million

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 20, 2012

      If you have good future screenshots of their profiles and career history I’d love to see them, you’d get a mention in the profile of course, if you can just email me them at darren@footballmanagerstory.com

      • comment avatar Bradders November 20, 2012

        Will do in next week or so, not got acsess to email at the moment

      • comment avatar Bradders November 25, 2012

        Deleted that save but had another from a while back. Have sent you Ciaran Clark Screenshots, however Toprak struggled with injuries (2 broken legs in 3 seasons)

  • comment avatar Chinmay November 22, 2012

    Fabrice Olinga – malaga . Otavio who plays at AMC at Intracional ( i dont remember exactly ) has great stats is 18 years only …

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 22, 2012

      Olinga isn’t someone I’d rate but Otavio is, I just need a good future profile before scouting him.

  • comment avatar Chinmay November 23, 2012

    Irrelevant here but can there be a list for scouts with knowledge of important areas like Brazil, Argentina, etc. Didn’t know where else to post so sorry :-(

  • comment avatar Oscar November 23, 2012

    Any profile on Isco?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 23, 2012

      As mentioned there will be but we can’t profile everyone at once I’m afraid.

  • comment avatar Ben November 24, 2012

    How does Denswil from Ajax turn out. Hes a defender I think. Also what about Fischer, Andersen and Eriksen from Ajax aswell?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 24, 2012

      Decent but nothing to shout home about. Eriksen and Fischer are very good, the latter will profiled soon, as for Andersen he’s good but not developed enough in any of our saves yet.

  • comment avatar Chinmay November 27, 2012

    Is Jean marie – dongou good enough ? I heard that he usually to adapt and gets homesick . Also andre schurlle ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 27, 2012

      Dongou doesn’t look too smart but Schurrle is a great player.

  • comment avatar king3ac November 27, 2012

    Mattia De Sciglio and Stephan El Shaarawy from Milan???

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 27, 2012

      De Sciglio is good and develops fairly well but El Shaarawy hasn’t really hit his potential in any of my saves, certainly talented enough though.

  • comment avatar king3ac November 28, 2012

    Mbaye Niang from Milan?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 28, 2012

      He’s good but hasn’t grown well enough in future saves yet.

  • comment avatar Ryan November 29, 2012

    Could you take a look at matt Phillips from blackpool really good youngster

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 29, 2012

      From the screenshots I have he isn’t quite good enough at the moment.

  • comment avatar lewis November 29, 2012

    what about fabrice olinga from malaga?

    • comment avatar lewis November 29, 2012

      oops dont worry didnt see your comment for the other guy what about alessio romagnoli from roma great stats for a 17 year old and maximilian meyer from schalke 04?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 30, 2012

      Not developed enough in any of my saves I’m afraid.

  • comment avatar Chinmay November 30, 2012

    the number of keepers is quite less .. but ter -Stegen is great , how are Courtois , luis guilhermme (dont know how that is spelled :) )
    basically some more keepers ..

    • comment avatar Darren Smith November 30, 2012

      We will look into it, though seen as a keeper fills one position and role on the pitch you should expect far less.

  • comment avatar Ryan December 2, 2012

    How is Wilfred Zaha doing in your save ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 2, 2012

      Not well at all, I haven’t seen him develop into even a decent player yet, hopefully human management is what he needs.

      • comment avatar Ryan December 4, 2012

        Well i’ve just bought him for my blackpool team second season just got them promoted ill see how he develops and send you a screenshot

        • comment avatar Darren Smith December 4, 2012

          That would be nice Ryan, hopefully he’ll do well.

  • comment avatar Adam December 5, 2012

    How well has Davide Santon developed in your save?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 5, 2012

      He has done well, develops as an all rounder but not massively in specific areas.

  • comment avatar vasilis December 5, 2012

    hey darren ! i would like to ask you about suso of liverpool.in my save this dude is realy amazing . i think its the same level with isco of malaga. what do you think?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 5, 2012

      He’s not done well in any of my saves I’m afraid, could be one of those who needs human management.

  • comment avatar Chinmay December 6, 2012

    How is Manuel Arteaga ? Just like otavio find him luckily while looking at scout reports , has good stats and a relase claues of 5 mil or somewhere near that ..

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 6, 2012

      He not very good TBH, not in my saves anyway.

  • comment avatar Wilson December 6, 2012

    Can Anyone Do A Future Profile Of Alessio ROmagnoli .. He Is The Youngest Quality Defender In The Game In My Opinion

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 6, 2012

      Looks like he could develop very well, but he’s not quite there in my save and we won’t be profiling until we have a future profile that does him justice. Maybe a few more years into my save.

  • comment avatar Matt December 6, 2012

    Hi, could you please tell me about Bojan (Milan)? Do you think he worths the 15 million euros I have to pay to get him? I am planning to play him as an attacking inside forward (left). Thanks a lot!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 6, 2012

      Depends what you look for in a player really, but I personally think Rodrigo and Lamela are better options.

      • comment avatar Matt December 7, 2012

        Thank you for your reply. How about Yarmolenko? I have gotten Lamela and plan to play him as an attacking midfielder.

        • comment avatar Darren Smith December 7, 2012

          He should be in the list above Matt.

  • comment avatar Wilson December 7, 2012

    Hi , Could You Be Able To Make A Future Profile Of Juan Iturbe And Viktor Fischer , I Wan To See Whether They Can Made Good Progress In My Liverpool Save

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 7, 2012

      We will eventually, I think Fischer is on one of the scouts lists already.

  • comment avatar Wilson December 7, 2012

    I Can’t Find Fischer Anywhere

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 7, 2012

      Sorry when I said he was on one of the scouts lists already, I meant one the sites scouts is planning a profile for him, not that it is in the table already.

  • comment avatar Wilson December 7, 2012

    Oh Thanks I Will Wait For It

  • comment avatar Wilson December 10, 2012

    Gerard Deulofeu Is A Player With Huge Potential And He Is Cheap This Time Round Because Of The Release Clause But There Is Still No Profile Of Him ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 10, 2012

      Because he hasn’t developed in any of our saves…as mentioned constantly in the comments above if a player isn’t in the list its because we can’t profile him due to his future screenshots. When we have appropriate screenshots he will be profiled.

  • comment avatar Wilson December 12, 2012

    I Know My Question Is Out Of The Topic But I Just Feel Like Asking . In Your Opinion , Would A Formation With Maxym Koval , Luke Shaw , Jan Kirchhoff , Kurt Zouma , Ryan McLaughlin , Leon Goretzka , Nuri Sahin , Moritz Leitner , Pablo Sarabia & Raheem Sterling As Wingers , Mauro Caballero With Fluid Attacking 4-3-2-1 Playmaker Leitner Target Man Caballero To Feet Works With Liverpool In The Physically Demanding EPL

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 12, 2012

      I couldn’t say, you’d have to test it.

  • comment avatar Rich December 12, 2012

    How about Markus Mendler and Paco Alcacer?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 13, 2012

      Decent but I’m not a big fan of them TBH.

      • comment avatar Rich December 13, 2012

        Lol oops, just spent £10 million on Alcacer! How about Leali (GK)? I don’t agree that you can get Adam Campbell for under £1 million, tried £10m but Newcastle rejected!

        • comment avatar Adam December 13, 2012

          You can offer him a contract at the start of the game, paying compensation of around £1 million to Newcastle. If he signs a new contract with Newcastle first then he’ll be considerably more expensive.

        • comment avatar Darren Smith December 13, 2012

          Adam is right. As stated in the post all the asking prices here are taken from a newly loaded save at the very beginning of the season and its a fact that Campbell is available for under £1 million in compensation when you ‘approach to sign’ him, he will have probably agreed a new deal in your save already. You may want to check all details at the start of the game before commenting. As for Leali, he is decent, probably a good backup keeper, but in my opinion not world class potentially.

          • comment avatar Rich December 13, 2012

            Well in my experience he didn’t want to join me when you try to sign him right at the start, I guess it depends which team you go – perhaps you could have stated this in the profile you have done?

          • comment avatar Darren Smith December 13, 2012

            So you already knew that he was available at that price if you know he doesn’t want to sign at the start of the game then? We can’t state every little thing or the profiles will be too long and put people off, I think we do more than enough for the community as it is…sometimes common sense has to apply.

  • comment avatar Chinmay December 13, 2012

    Do you have a player named as a Paul Dejyothin in your game ? He is a regen i think but occurs in every game , I had him in fm12 too ..

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 13, 2012

      He will be a regen but not the same as in any other game. Regens are generated uniquely so they aren’t duplicated, the name and maybe even position could be similar but it won’t be the same player.

  • comment avatar Ryan December 13, 2012

    Im after a young english RB and LB any suggestions ?

      Thanks for the heads up, the profile itself is correct but the table has a typo, all corrected now.

  • comment avatar Rich December 13, 2012

    Is Aaron Ramsey really a wonderkid? Pretty established if you ask me…similar comments can apply to Wilshere.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 13, 2012

      We have to categorize every player from wonderkid, cheap or best players…both fell into the wonderkid category in our opinion.

  • comment avatar Rich December 13, 2012

    Sorry if I’m coming across a bit of tw*t Darren, wasn’t intentional…I think the list you have compiled is fantastic on the whole, really great full for the info and advice. Crisetig is a particular favourite of mine!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 13, 2012

      Don’t worry, I have no problem with the profiles and lists being challenged as long as its not someone just been awkward for no reason…which judging by your last comment obviously isn’t the case here, we all have an opinion at the end of the day and I’m happy for everyone to voice there’s.

      Must admit I am a huge fan of Crisetig too, weird player in his development too, seems to really progress after the age of 23 which is great.

  • comment avatar Wilson December 14, 2012

    Will Playing Wing Back With Wide AM Be Better Or Full Back With Wide AM Be Better

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 14, 2012

      Depends completely on your tactic but I personally never use wing backs.

  • comment avatar Wilson December 15, 2012

    After a hard time , I decided to stick with Ricardo Rodriguez on the left until Nicholas tagliafico qualifies for a work permit and Mattia de sciglio on the right with jack Robinson and Ryan McLaughlin as backups , center will be kyriakos papadopoulos and kurt zouma and Marc Andre ter stegen in goal , hope my defense won’t fail me

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 15, 2012

      Certainly seems full of promise to me, all I’d say is keep the faith, don’t lose confidence if the first season isn’t too good. I gave similar youth plenty of time and now they are untouchable.

  • comment avatar Wilson December 16, 2012

    Yup . A Quarter Through My First Season , Defeated Chelsea 2-0 , Defeated Arsenal 3-2 , But I Can’t Seem To Find The Balance Between Attack And Defense . Against Teams Like Southampton I’m Actually Struggling , Luckily For Fierro , Scores 2 Goals For Me To Win 2-1 , 93th Min Goal Zzz

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 16, 2012

      The defense will get stronger and stronger the more they play together I should imagine.

  • comment avatar Wilson December 16, 2012

    I have been focusing on nurturing sterling , his stats grew at a very fast rate at the start , but after 2 months , everything slow done for no reason , I played him in all my matches , his morale is always superb , his average rating is above 7 , but the rate he is improving , slow down , I use 2 months to increase his technique by 2 , then for the next 2 months , everything is the same but he is not improving anymore , do you know why ?

  • comment avatar Wilson December 17, 2012

    Will the star rating of the league and cups u playing affect the growth of the players or just game time is enough no matter what competition the match is for , ur youth development guide didn’t state that

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 17, 2012

      Basically the player needs to playing at his level of football, ignore the star ratings etc, its the experience against the opponents. Play against far better opponents and he will play badly meaning the game won’t help him develop…equally even if he plays incredibly well every game but is against far lesser opponents then he won’t gain much from the experience either. Its about getting a mix, that is why I recommend Europe and easier matches for when they are very young then integrating them into more top flight matches as they mature.

  • comment avatar Wilson December 17, 2012

    Ok I got it , thanks no wonder my sterling didn’t improve that much now but I still have time to put him back on track , when I feel he had reached his max potential I will show u his screenshot , btw how you people extract the screenshot in the profile , I tried but I couldn’t do it , I use print screen but nothing happen

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 17, 2012

      Try downloading pickpic, that is image editing software that takes screenshots, its free.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 17, 2012

      Sterling is been profiled as we speak, but Suso and Yesil haven’t developed enough in my saves I’m afraid.

      • comment avatar James S December 17, 2012

        I’ve found in my Liverpool save, there all coming along well (Sterling especially), Although I think Yesil is really something special he’s scoring for fun on loan

  • comment avatar Wilson December 17, 2012

    Will sterling be out tomorrow ?

    Pablo Sarabia from Getafe ? Paco Alcácer from Valencia ??

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 19, 2012

      I’m not sure about Alcacer due to poor development so far, but when we find a worthy screenshot for sarabia he will be profiled.

      • comment avatar Chinmay December 19, 2012

        I have a good one , but I have bought Sarabia in 2014 , so will it be okay ?

  • comment avatar Wilson December 19, 2012

    I don have anyone complaining and they perform well as a whole but I have some players whose stats decline even I played them regularly but only for a month then everything get back to normal , is it natural to have some stats to decline even if the player is progressing well

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 19, 2012

      That is normal, just improve your coaches and training too if they aren’t to the max, you can’t do any more.

  • comment avatar Wilson December 19, 2012

    Is There Any Way To Make A Player Who Cannot Adapt To A Country Make Him Adapt To It Because Mauro Caballero Cannot Adapt To England And He Requested Transfer

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 19, 2012

      I’m afraid not, you just have to wait and they’ll adapt.

  • comment avatar Wilson December 19, 2012

    My Coaches Are 4 5* And 5 4.5* , Is That Enough ?

  • comment avatar Wilson December 19, 2012

    Second season was fun , neumar requested transfer and I snap him up for an initial 8m , 23m loan over 48months , sold caballero and ademilson , make up for some loss

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 20, 2012

      Good business and lucky at that.

  • comment avatar Wilson December 20, 2012

    What is the highest facilities rating , I have top training facilities and youth facilities but I still can upgrade them , or how many levels of top are there , do you know ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 20, 2012

      I’m not sure to be honest, I assume ‘state of the art’ is probably the best…just keep upgrading them until you can no longer.

  • comment avatar Wilson December 20, 2012

    What about in your save , have you hit the maximum ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 20, 2012

      I don’t know, they are ‘top’ but I have just upgraded them so the board not offering an option to upgrade again doesn’t mean they can’t be upgraded further. I’ll have to wait a season to know for sure.

      • comment avatar Chinmay December 26, 2012

        A good way to check is hover the pointer on the greyed out option of “Traininig Faclities ” for a few second and a box pops up , ifi it says that the board is not willing to upgrade as they have done , then you can , but have to wait . But if it says that the facilities are alrady state of art , then that is the best you can do .

  • comment avatar Wilson December 20, 2012

    Same like my case , hopefully some hardcore players max it and spread the info

  • comment avatar Wilson December 20, 2012

    The mental stats that cannot be trained can only increase by giving the player game time right ? But I gave sterling alot of game time , his mental stats seems not to grow at all , or maybe only a little after 2.5 seasons , is there any other thing that affect his mental growth

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 21, 2012

      Game time is the main way to improve their mental stats yes…but by training them in the role through individual training it can help.

      • comment avatar Chinmay December 26, 2012

        Does tutoring help ?

        • comment avatar Darren Smith December 26, 2012

          Not much in my experience but I haven’t tested it much to be fair.

  • comment avatar Wilson December 21, 2012

    I Missed Out On The Role , I Focus On Technical Abilities , Hope I Don’t Screw Up Sterling …

  • comment avatar Wilson December 23, 2012

    I Was Amazed By This Profile Of This Gokhan Tore In My Liverpool Save . He Had The Ability To Play Both Winger And Inside Foward On The Right Flank And He Had Progressed Well With CPU Management . It Seems Like He Is Not Profiled On This Web , So Maybe U Can Take A Look At This And Decide Whether To Profile Him Anot ^^

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 23, 2012

      He is good but due to Rubin just signing him he’s not too cheap and the mental attributes never really hit a good enough level, players like Gokhan need to be cheap at the start of the game to get a profile really. Thanks for sharing though, I will think on it.

  • comment avatar Wilson December 23, 2012

    He Possess Great Corner , Crossing , Technique Attribute , He Can Be Anyone’s First Choice Corner Taker With Both Excellent Feet .. Top Draw Talent

  • comment avatar Ryan December 26, 2012

    Hey Darren were can i find your 4-5-1 Tactic ?

  • comment avatar Indadept December 27, 2012

    Hey Darren

    Have you tried looking at Christopher Forrester?? I bought him with QPR in the winther window 12/13.. He only get a 2 star rating by my scouts, but is actually owning my midfield.. And is getting noticed by Liverpool, Tottenham, Malaga & Shakhtar..

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 27, 2012

      I am not aware of any player by that name, are you sure the spelling is right?

      • comment avatar Indadept December 27, 2012

        Yes it is spelled correctly.. He is an irish youngster, who plays for St. Patricks Atheltic in the Irish Prem..

        • comment avatar Darren Smith December 27, 2012

          I don’t think he’s visible with the database we search under, might need the Irish clubs loaded maybe.

          • comment avatar Indadept December 27, 2012

            Ok.. But even though the scouts see him as a subpar player, he performs immensely, even with low stats..

            So if you come to the conclusion that you will look in to ireland, have a look at him

          • comment avatar Darren Smith December 27, 2012

            He wouldn’t appear in many gamers saves so we won’t be looking at him I’m afraid, thanks for the recommendation though.

  • comment avatar mn December 27, 2012

    where is betinho and bruma from sporting lisbon? serch for betinho and you will see that is amazing

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 28, 2012

      We don’t have future profiles of either to warrant a report I’m afraid.

  • comment avatar Ryan December 28, 2012

    what is Iker Muniain like in your save and will you be profiling him ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 28, 2012

      He is good, we will profile him eventually when other reports are done.

      • comment avatar Ryan December 28, 2012

        Okay Great

  • comment avatar qassim December 29, 2012

    am now about to start the 2013/14 season and want to ask who should i buy between oscar and eriksen? whos among is better?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith December 29, 2012

      Both very different players, depend on the role they’ll play and what you want from them.

      • comment avatar qassim December 29, 2012

        i want one that can play cm since i already have both willian and kaka in the team

        • comment avatar Darren Smith December 29, 2012

          Eriksen then.

          • comment avatar qassim December 29, 2012

            ok thanks

          • comment avatar qassim December 29, 2012

            is fierro as good as in fm2012? ooo and do u know anything about babaca khoumar?

          • comment avatar Darren Smith December 29, 2012

            Fierro is even better this year, he’s in the list, take a look. Not sure who the other player is though.

          • comment avatar qassim December 30, 2012

            he plays for fiorentina. do u know juanmi and olinga both from malaga? hw do they turn out to be?

          • comment avatar Darren Smith December 30, 2012

            I know who you mean now, he’s not developed enough I’m afraid and the same goes for the other two, though Juanmi can get good we just don’t have the evidence.

          • comment avatar qassim December 30, 2012

            ok lastly wheres the best position to play barkley ross?

          • comment avatar Darren Smith December 30, 2012

            Whatever his scout report says, but it should vary on your tactic too.

  • comment avatar Chinmay January 1, 2013

    How are Ryan McLaughlin form Liverpool , Rafinha from Barca , Leon Goreztka from Bochum , Moi Gomez from Villareal ?
    Thanks

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 1, 2013

      Not well to be fair, out of the ones I can see only Rafinha and Gomez look capable of achieving anything they would need very good human management.

  • comment avatar Ben January 3, 2013

    What about Mbaye from Inter Milan. Really good young left back I think

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 3, 2013

      He could be decent but not worth a profile based on the screenshots we have.

      • comment avatar Ben January 3, 2013

        Shame, I thought he could’ve been awesome :(

        • comment avatar Darren Smith January 3, 2013

          There are a few like that, you never know, maybe with the right system, team and development he could be a very useful player.

  • comment avatar Newman January 4, 2013

    witsel is a amazing cm, bought him for 6 mil and got a bid for him after one season for 32 million

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 4, 2013

      Yeah he is but almost unbuyable at the start of the game.

  • comment avatar Chinmay January 4, 2013

    roberto firmino , is 19 , alrady 16 in dribbling , but expensive in first season , otavio and firmino kill the oppositions cb’s for me , firmino is more crative of the two ..

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 4, 2013

      Both just not developed to play for the biggest teams in my saves I’m afraid, though Otavio looks to have the potential.

      • comment avatar Chinmay January 5, 2013

        Yeah Otavio , in one save was amazing without human management , but in my new save , he does not reach that same level . I don’t know mych but there is somethinv like changing PA , right ?

        • comment avatar Darren Smith January 5, 2013

          Yes some players can have flexible potential ability which Otavio has, all this means is as opposed to say a 160 fixed potential they are assigned a negative number that reflects a more flexible PA. For instance Otavio has -8 PA which could mean his PA will vary from game to game at around 140-160.

          • comment avatar Chinmay January 5, 2013

            Thanks for the response , got the concept . Two more players to reccomend , Zakaria Bakkali and tristan berghuis , both from PSV .

          • comment avatar Darren Smith January 5, 2013

            We’ll take a look at them.

  • comment avatar Lasse January 5, 2013

    Look up Pedro Carlos Romero. He looks like he’s gonna become a top star!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 5, 2013

      Not visible in my saves which means he’s either a regen or not visible without his respective country loaded.

      • comment avatar Lasse January 6, 2013

        Weird… What about Toni Kroos? Will he be uploaded?

        • comment avatar Darren Smith January 6, 2013

          I’ll be doing him at some point yes.

  • comment avatar Gabriel January 6, 2013

    Hey Darren, what winger, defensive midfielder and central defender would you recommend me to buy?? I just can’t decide lol. I need some players for those positions ps. I’m currently with my liv’pool squad and I’m still in the first season. Would be great if you could help…

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 6, 2013

      That would depend on so many things, but the list above is here to have variety, I’d just suggest looking at what you want to spend then filtering through the list based on that first. It all comes down to what CA you need and what type of players you want as well as your budget.

  • comment avatar Ben January 6, 2013

    Hi Darren, just wondeirng how good does Draxler from Schalke get?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 6, 2013

      He can get very good but could be of a specific taste.

  • comment avatar Chinmay January 10, 2013

    tristan berghuis ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 10, 2013

      Very poor player in terms of development in all my saves.

  • comment avatar king3ac January 12, 2013

    Granit Xhaka?????

  • comment avatar SGrandson January 12, 2013

    What about James Rodriguez and Iturbe, from FC Porto?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 12, 2013

      James is going to get profiled at some point but Iturbe just isn’t good enough.

  • comment avatar ms January 13, 2013

    is marcos lopes from man city good in the game?

  • comment avatar ms January 13, 2013

    who is marcos lopes from man city in 2017?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 13, 2013

      No not in any of my saves anyway.

  • comment avatar Ben January 18, 2013

    Darren, do you think Lukaku will ever be good enough? He seems to have the potential but on mine he seems to just get stuck in Chelsea’s reserves in the majority of saves I do. Great work by the way!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 18, 2013

      I don’t think he’ll make it 9 times out of 10 in this patch, but when the next database update is ready just after January I would expect a major improvement due to his form in real life…look out for him when patch 13.3 comes out, he’ll be one to watch IMO.

      • comment avatar Ben January 18, 2013

        Shame. I remember him being amazing on FM 10, best striker in the game! Also, what about Coquelin from Arsenal? Seems to have developed really well on my save at the moment.

        • comment avatar Darren Smith January 18, 2013

          Coquelin is talented, but a rather frustrating signing as his development doesn’t really kick in till too late for my liking.

          • comment avatar Ben January 18, 2013

            Fair enough, only realised he was actually any good when it popped up that he had played his first game for France. I just stopped and started before laughing lol.

  • comment avatar Esben January 19, 2013

    What about Draxler, does he develop

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 19, 2013

      Yeah he can do, can develop into a very good player but lacks in the mental department on the saves I have.

  • comment avatar Adam January 31, 2013

    How do Sebastian Rode and Kevin Volland develop in your saves?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith January 31, 2013

      OK but not worth signing if my future test save is anything to go by.

      • comment avatar Adam January 31, 2013

        Fair enough, I have a feeling they may get a boost in the next update. Ones to watch I think!

      • comment avatar Adam April 25, 2013

        Well it looks like Kevin Volland definitely got a boost then! What about Sebastian Rode, have you checked him out in the 13.3.3 update?

        • comment avatar Darren Smith April 25, 2013

          Volland certainly did, unfortunately the same can’t be said for Rode though.

          • comment avatar Adam April 26, 2013

            That’s a shame. Here are some other young players that I rate highly in the Bundesliga, if you haven’t looked at them already:

            Sebastian Jung – DR/WBR
            Andre Hoffmann – DC/DMC
            Matthias Ginter – DMC/DC
            Patrick Herrmann – AMR/ST

          • comment avatar Darren Smith April 26, 2013

            Same with them really, none have progressed enough in our test saves.

  • comment avatar P. Rubio February 5, 2013

    When do you think the new update will come out?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 5, 2013

      Miles tweeted a week ago hinting that it may not be until March…but no one knows.

  • comment avatar js94 February 11, 2013

    You should do profiles on Javi Espinosa and David Domej, They cost 500k and 6k each and both become insane players for what they cost

  • comment avatar Heaven February 13, 2013

    Hi Darren, what do you think about Victor Wanyama from Celtic, hes a real beast, isnt he?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 13, 2013

      He certainly is a beast, worth signing, I’m just waiting for a decent screenhsot of him really.

  • comment avatar James Tompson February 15, 2013

    Travis Munn @ boston united
    very cheap quick LB/CB
    his is best 10k signing i ever made
    he scored 13 in first seaon and got player and young player of the season for me at hayes n yeading and sold him on for 350k next season.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 15, 2013

      But he’s nowhere near the standard required for any of our lists, these are some of the best players in the world, not lower league signings.

  • comment avatar FRodri February 16, 2013

    I think you should look at Danilo from FC Porto, Srdjan Mijailovic from Red Star Belgrade. Danilo is one of the best DR in the game and Mijailovic has sweet potencial at the age of 18.

    Keep up the grat work ;)

    • comment avatar FRodri February 17, 2013

      I forgot one. Jonathan Okore is great too.

      Cheers

      • comment avatar Darren Smith February 17, 2013

        A fair few recommend him, I personally think he lacks vital attributes for the position, but if I see a screenshot with good enough development we’ll profile him.

        • comment avatar FRodri February 18, 2013

          thank you darren, what about the other two i reccomended?

          • comment avatar Darren Smith February 19, 2013

            Mijailovic isn’t visible with the database we use and Danilo is a great talent but we don’t have screenshots doing him justice yet.

  • comment avatar Ben February 20, 2013

    Neal Maupay from Nice might be worth a look? Being touted as the next big French striker in real life at the moment, has been linked with City and seems to be quite good on this game.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 20, 2013

      As mentioned he isn’t visible unless you load France or a custom database, so we won’t be profiling him.

      • comment avatar Ben February 20, 2013

        Fair enough, didn’t realise that mate. Shame though as he can be awesome!

  • comment avatar SAFC February 23, 2013

    Should look at ben marshall at leicester hes amazing!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 23, 2013

      Not really good enough for this list though, I don’t ever see him reaching the top of European Football. Excellent for a lower EPL side though.

  • comment avatar Gaurav Chaddah February 24, 2013

    Correct me if I am wrong but is there a profile of Yann M’Vila? If not are you planning one doing one?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 24, 2013

      I believe you are right, he’s just one of those awkward profiles where we feel there is potential of a better screenshot but don’t have it as yet, but he may be another one where we just bite the bullet and profile him anyway.

  • comment avatar IHaveSomeFriends February 25, 2013

    Vlad Marin, George Evans and Jose Angel Pozo? Did any turn out any good?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 25, 2013

      The first isn’t visible in my saves and the other two never amount to anything from what I’ve seen.

  • comment avatar Lorenzo February 26, 2013

    Peope i really do need help, I know this is off topic but i accidently added a head coach to my profile how do i remove him

    • comment avatar Darren Smith February 26, 2013

      What do you mean added a head coach to your profile? If you mean you signed a head coach and don’t want him then just release him (taking the hit money wise) or you’ll have to grin and bare it if the board won’t let you sack him.

      • comment avatar Lorenzo February 26, 2013

        No, I have a head coach (me) with Arsenal but i was curious about the add head coach button so i did but now i got a second head coach ad Real madrid but i want to remove him

        • comment avatar Darren Smith February 26, 2013

          do you mean ‘manager’ then? Just change user to the one you don’t want on there, click on the arrow pointer down that is to the write of the managers name at the top, then hover over ‘actions’ and click ‘retire’, make sure you do this with the right manager though.

          • comment avatar Lorenzo February 26, 2013

            Thanks Mr.Smith, Btw i have another question lol, i got a talented squad but how and with who should i play my squad: Bony,Ba,Giroud,Oxlade,Zaha,Bulot,Maher,wilshere,Santi,Arteta,Ramsey,

            yeah how should i play

          • comment avatar Darren Smith February 26, 2013

            Depends completely on your tactic really.

  • comment avatar yuma March 7, 2013

    Richmond Boakye.. Isco.. Iker Munian.. Esposito..

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 7, 2013

      Isco and Muniain are already in the list above, while Boakye hasn’t developed well in our test save and you’ll have to be a little more exact on which Esposito, there’s a few.

  • comment avatar king3ac March 10, 2013

    PAUL POGBA????

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 10, 2013

      We haven’t profiled him yet due to the future profiles available compared with his asking price but I’ll take another look seen as there’s a new patch out.

  • comment avatar P. Rubio March 10, 2013

    Do you think rotating Ter Stegen and De Gea would be a good idea?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 10, 2013

      I think so, if you don’t then one of them will really suffer and splitting the fixtures between them will help both players develop.

  • comment avatar santo March 18, 2013

    Is ongenda still very good in fm13?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 18, 2013

      Yeah, he’s in the list above.

    VARANE??

  • comment avatar Wilson March 21, 2013

    Lucas Romero ( The First Natural Ball Winning Midfielder )At The Age Of 18 … Seems Like A Kid With Potential . His Stats At The Game Are Fantastic For A 18 Year-Old … Will He Get Profiled Soon ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 21, 2013

      I already have a profile prepared for Romero, he will be added next week.

  • comment avatar Edgar March 23, 2013

    How does Marco Davide Faraoni turn out? I’m with Inter in my second year and since Danilo from Porto is so lukewarm on my admires and declaring interests, I’m thinking of building Faraoni up once I buy his other half from Udinese.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 23, 2013

      He is very good, I think we have him on our to do list.

      • comment avatar Edgar March 23, 2013

        Thanks for the quick response, Darren! Really appreciate all the hard work you and everyone else puts in. Hope you have an excellent weekend.

        • comment avatar Darren Smith March 23, 2013

          Its our pleasure Edgar, have a good weekend yourself.

  • comment avatar Indy March 25, 2013

    Massimo Bruno from Anderlecht?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 25, 2013

      Not visible in our test save, you must need Belgium loaded or a custom database.

      • comment avatar Indy April 6, 2013

        and Dennis Praet, both absolute ballers!

  • comment avatar DannyBhoy88 March 25, 2013

    lucas Andersen from ajax ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 26, 2013

      Andersen has lots of potential but hit it in our test save, so we’re waiting for a better future profile.

  • comment avatar DannyBhoy88 March 25, 2013

    Also Tony Watt from celtic

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 26, 2013

      For some weird reason Watt doesn’t show in my test save.

  • comment avatar Edvard March 31, 2013

    Hey Darren. You should take a look at Alberto Grassi, quality playmaker.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 31, 2013

      Looks like a decent player but not quite got that star quality in my test save.

  • comment avatar Edvard March 31, 2013

    Fredrik Midtsjø is also a fenomenal player.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith March 31, 2013

      Not visible in my save I’m afraid, means you need to load the country he’s playing in or a custom database of some sort.

  • comment avatar David April 14, 2013

    Whats the best formation to play with quick players , to play counter attacking football ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 14, 2013

      There is no answer to that, its the overall tactic that makes it work not just the formation, you could use numerous formations.

  • comment avatar Tenshu April 18, 2013

    How about Vaclav Kadlec ??

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 18, 2013

      Not done enough in my test save to be profiled I’m afraid, he would do OK with human management but there’s better options now.

    Have you heard about Kenny Tete? Rightback of Ajax u19, great talent in FM2013!

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 19, 2013

      He’s not visible in my saves meaning Holland must be loaded.

  • comment avatar js94 April 23, 2013

    Tony Watt, Ryan McLaughlin, John Ruddy, Ruben Pardo & Dennis Praet are all amazing in my Liverpool save

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 24, 2013

      Thanks for the suggestions, some we just don’t have good enough future profiles but we’ll take a look.

  • comment avatar Gaurav Chaddah April 30, 2013

    I am after a ball winning midfielder in the first season and money isn’t really a issue… Who in your opinion is the best option, preferably quite young?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith April 30, 2013

      I’d go for Crisetig, Cirigliano, Romulo (Spartak) or Lucas Romero (Velez.) There’s better options in terms of CA but they are also older.

    I haven’t ben on here in a while so hello Darren and the boys. This might have been said already but is it just me or is Olivier Giroud to good because in my Spurs,Dortmund and Northampton games he bags goals for fun and his in game stats dont make sense. For example he has the same finishing as Van Persie and better than Rooney. Just a Thought. Oh and keep up the good work guys.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 5, 2013

      I can see why you’d think that based on his current performances in real life but I just think SI are living on the way he played before Arsenal and seeing his time in England as a transitional period. He is probably overrated in few areas in game though.

  • comment avatar Varun May 7, 2013

    If I want to try as get some wonder kids and focus on developing them but a team where a challenge still lies in what team could u do that, Liverpool, arsenal?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 7, 2013

      I’d say someone like Arsenal maybe but it depends on what you class as a challenge.

  • comment avatar Danny from FM 14 May 21, 2013

    For me you have under-rated Will Hughes, he is spectacular after a couple of seasons, never seen a player hit 35 assists in one season before, especially from CM! Get on him lads, £6m at the start of the game, play him regularly and he is a 5 start CM after 3 seasons.

    Who do you think will be the stars of 2014 though? Check my link for my ideas

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 21, 2013

      We only rated him based on the future profile we had, if we had one for his full development then he may well have been rated higher.

      • comment avatar Danny from FM 14 May 22, 2013

        Do you want a screenshot of him after a few seasons?

        • comment avatar Darren Smith May 22, 2013

          We only use screenshots from 2015 minimum and patch 13.3 only, but if it fulfills those requirements and is much better than the screenshot we already have then you can send it our way yes.

  • comment avatar Ross Kinsey May 26, 2013

    Anthony Knockaert from Leicester, always ends up at a french team for about 8million after 2 years?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith May 26, 2013

      We’ve already profiled him bu I think anyone under 3.5 star was knocked off this list so he may have fallen into that category.

    Hi please i need a very good left back. i am managing malaga and my left back is monreal. was thinking of luke shaw or lorenzo saporetti. who is better?

  • comment avatar Gabriel June 20, 2013

    How well does Arkadiusz Milik develop? I think he deserves a profile… take a look at him :)

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 20, 2013

      Not visible in my save I’m afraid, you probably need Germany loaded which isn’t part of the criteria we profile under.

  • comment avatar Wilson June 22, 2013

    If I Had A Player In A Club With 20 Training And Youth Facilities In The Premier League , And A Player In A Club With 20 Training And Youth Facilities In French League , Will The Progress Be The Same , Or The One In The French League Will Not Be As Good As The One In The Premier League

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 22, 2013

      You’re forgetting the key ingredient, first team football. That is what will make the difference, how many games they play and against what quality of opposition. The facilities against country thing is irrelevant, obviously, good facilities are good facilities, its the quality of coaches and game time that will differ.

  • comment avatar Wilson June 24, 2013

    For Staff , Will Adaptability Affect People Already Worked In The Country Before But Now Had A New Job And You Want To Bring Him Back To Your Club Where He Worked In The Country Before . Will Adaptability Come To Place Or It Won’t Have Any Effect Cause He Already Worked In The Country Before

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 24, 2013

      I don’t see it making a difference, it would make more difference for scouts roaming different regions to what they’re used to and any staff coming from another country. Obviously the more adaptability the better as any staff member will get to know the club quicker…but I never pay attention to it.

  • comment avatar Wilson June 24, 2013

    Because I Read Somewhere Where It Says Coaches With Low Adaptability Will Tend To Not Fully Utilise His Full Potential In Training At The Start , So I Thought It Would Affect The Progress Of The Players , Do Man Management Affects Training ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 24, 2013

      Man management is a factor but again its not one of the truly key attributes I look for. If you’re are a top top team sure you should look at these but if not you’ll be looking for the impossible coach.

  • comment avatar Wilson June 24, 2013

    Apart From The Key Factors That Determine The Star Rating Of A Coach , What Else Do You Look For In A Coach ? . If You Are Managing A Club In England , Would You Look For England-Based Coach Or Coaches Of England Nationality , Or You Just Look For The Best Coach Around The World And Bring Them In Regardless Of Where Are They Based And What Nationality ??

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 24, 2013

      I just look at the key attributes, that’s it.

  • comment avatar Conor June 28, 2013

    What about Jon Williams for Crystal Palace? Does he turn out any good

    • comment avatar Darren Smith June 28, 2013

      He can develop but just not done quite enough in my test save to warrant a profile over other players. As the profiles dry up he may get one though.

  • comment avatar Wilson July 5, 2013

    Why Do I Encounter Training Concerns With Some Players When They Are Playing Week In Week Out And Did Not Do Badly In The Monthly Training Report , And I Notice One Common Point In The Concerns I Encounter , It’s All ( Fitness ) , Do You Know Why ?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 5, 2013

      I don’t understand what you are referring too, if the monthly report is showing that they have trained well then where are you been told they are training badly?

  • comment avatar olues July 5, 2013

    Hang on mates, what about Lucas Ocampos, Manolo Gabbiadini, Andriy Yarmelenko? These players are world beaters!

    • comment avatar olues July 5, 2013

      just saw Yarmelenko and ocampos, my bad

  • comment avatar Greg Pancoust July 6, 2013

    Hey Darren has anybody had luck with Paulo Dybala at Palermo. Might have already been mentioned but he looks a good shout?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 7, 2013

      He is a good player and would certainly deserve a profile if we had shots of his full development but unfortunately we don’t, the AI seems to have failed in our test saves to get the best from him.

  • comment avatar Greg Pancoust July 9, 2013

    I’ll see what I get after a few years with my saves. Haven’t played much this time due to work and keep up the good work you guys.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 9, 2013

      We haven’t profiled him yet due to not having the right screenshot. Unfortunately this came too late for myself as I already have all my profiles prepared but maybe one of the other scouts will use it, he looks very good.

      • comment avatar johnnydorama July 9, 2013

        Yeah, I couldn’t believe real madrid sold him for that cheap. He probably requested a transfer. I tried to get him back when I took over but inter wouldn’t sell him haha

  • comment avatar Dario July 10, 2013

    Yaya diallo ? German 18een striker

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 10, 2013

      He’s not visible with the database we load for scouting. You might need Germany loaded.

  • comment avatar Antomac July 16, 2013

    Has anybody got a profile of how Yaya Sanogo turns out?

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 16, 2013

      Not one that would make you want to sign him no.

  • comment avatar Greg Pancoust July 18, 2013

    Mattia Perin at Genoa. Might of already been mentioned.

    • comment avatar Darren Smith July 18, 2013

      Sorry we’re not doing any further FM13 profiles as we focus towards FM14.

      He certainly is, but we never found a screenshot that did him justice and unless we find that we don’t profile the player.

  • comment avatar olly August 18, 2013

    hey striker around 15m consistent

    • comment avatar Darren Smith August 18, 2013

      On top of Lukaku, Rodrigo from Benfica and Alcacer may be worth a look…younger future options include Ademilson and Fierro.

    Colombian CB Balanta from River Plate huge talent. He has 4.5 star potential and you can sign him for around £10mil
