Sime Vrsaljko from Dinamo

Never heard of him? But hey, he got one of the best stats ever for someone as young as he is. Sime Vrsaljko is transfer listed at the start of the game. I have no idea why and don't bother either because it just makes my life easier if I have the money to buy him over!

Main attributes to be considered for a wing back.
1. Pace
2. Crossing
3. Positioning
4. Stamina
5. Marking

Already bought by Ath Madrid early in game...


Well, at the start of the game, his states are as follow

1. Pace - 15
2. Crossing - 13
3. Positioning - 11
4. Stamina - 17
5. Marking - 13

Very very good attributes for a 19 years old...Caught the eyes of big club and ended up in Atl├ętico Madrid for a fee of £3.2m

After three seasons at La Liga with Atl├ętico Madrid , he moves to Manchester United for a fee of £14m , at the age of 22!!!


Three seasons later...

Stats are now as follow:

1. Pace - 16 (Up 1)

2. Crossing - 14 (Up 1)
3. Positioning - 14 (Up 3)
4. Stamina - 19 (Up 2)
5. Marking - 15 (Up 2)

Not only he has the pace to beat opponents marker, his dribble skill stands at 13... Good concentration and determination. Have the strength to fend off physical challenge from opponent and most importantly versatile! He can also play in the midfielder which is an add point !

Possible Prized Away Fee At the start of the game: £2.7m - £3.2m

James Tomkin - The West Ham Hot Prospect

James Tomkin, one of the most promising youngster in West Ham squad. Ever wonder how his development gonna be after 3 years in FM 2012 game? Will he be a good signing? This post will be explaining in detail all these.

For a center defender, the most important attributes we are looking for are
1. Marking
2. Concentration
3. Positioning
4.Strength

Tackling,Anticipation and pace are equally important.

James Tomkin at the start of the game.

These are the stats he has at the start of the game.
Marking- 14
Concentration -11
Positioning - 12
Strength - 14
Pace - 13
Tackling - 13
Anticipation - 13
These are great especially given the fact that he is only 22 years old. At the start of my game, Newcastle United already prized him away with a bid of £3.2m....

3 seasons later.... 2014-2015



Marking- 14 (Same)
Concentration -13( Up 2)
Positioning - 15 (Up 3)
Strength - 16 (Up 2)
Pace - 14 (Up 1)
Tackling - 14 (Up 1)
Anticipation - 15 (Up 2)

Estimated value of £4.7m.... by now, he is already attracting interest of various top club including Tottenham, Arsenal and few others. Makes no mistake, he also has heading of 15 and 17 for jumping which makes him a goal threat as well as a good reliable defender. Promising and can still improve further.

Leeds United and The First Two Signing

After considering for a while, I have decided to go with Leeds United as my first team to manage in Football Manager 2012.


Leeds United, the team I picked.


Few other teams that I have considered include West Ham United, Birmingham City FC and Hull City FC but in my opinion, their team consist too many good players that promotion to the Premier League is almost guaranteed. Not challenging and it would be of no fun if it's too easy.



Leeds United, on the other hand, have a decent squad although the financial part would mean that only small amount of transfer budget will be provided. It would be challenging as I have never manage Leeds United before.

Cutting short my story, I have already make 2 new signings to the existing squad.

One young midfielder, one veteran defender.

For midfield, I have signed Jay Spearing from Liverpool Football Club. It's interesting to see that once you started the game, young promising midfielder like Jay Spearing is already being transfer listed.


At the age of 22, Spearing definitely still have a lot to offer to the team. His stamina, position, teamwork and work rate all over 15. These are actually the main attributes that we are looking for in a midfielder. Thus, he is a fairly good midfielder for his age.What matters most is Kenny Dalglish, the manager at Liverpool is willing to accept at monthly installment payment for this transfer. Anyway, I will be looking forward to see what he will be able to offer to the team!

The next signing happened to be a free signing. Cant ignore the fact that he is a good footballer but he made himself a name in World Cup after being headbutted by Zinedine Zidane.  Yes, he is the man called Marco Matterazi.
Remember this? In a world cup few years back!


Although he is now 37 years old (in game), I think he still has a lot to offer to the team. Marking at 14, Concentration at 13, more than enough for league games in Championship division. 16 for position and work rate, 14 for teamwork...You couldn't ask more from a 37 veteran defender. More importantly, he got 16 for his strength. More than enough to hold back big striker like Peter Crouch, Darrent Bent and others although he is not going to meet them unless we get promoted.

Also take note that he has 17 for heading and 16 for jumping. That would make him a good goal threat to the opponent when it comes to corner. All these makes him a good bargain signing.

Hmm, that's all for today. I think I am looking forward for few more signings before getting ready for the league to kick off!
