Today's wonderkid review will be about Liverpool’s young star in raising Jonjo Shelvey. Solid Deep Lying Playmaker, who also plays for England’s U21. Find out our recommendation of this player.
First we’ll take a look at his starting attributes in Football Manager 2013. His best position is Deep Lying Playmaker in Defend duty.
As we can see he has solid attributes for position that he is most comfortable with. Although, his Marking, Tackling and Strength could be a bit better. Read on to see does he improve those attributes.
Next stop, Scout Report. This ones by Pantaleo Corvino, hired at Barcelona.
Judging from Pantaleo Corvino’s report card we can conclude that he would be a fairly good signing for Barcelona. However, consider that the world class club such as Barcelona, has World Class players in midfield so that he could not get a better recommendation. But for instance in a mid class club such as Liverpool, Jonjo would at least have a Important First Team Player status.
Estimate cost of Jonjo would range from €9.5M - €12.5M (£7.7M - £10M), fair price for such player. Wage Demands would range from €1.2M p/a - €1.6M p/a (£966K p/a - £1.3M p/a), once again a good affordable wage.
|Main Strength – Technique||Main Weakness – Marking||Personality – Fairly Determined|
|Specific Strength – Important Matches||Specific Weakness – Marking||Team Personality – Professional|
Ok now let us see how well did he develop in the game after 8 season. Once again we highlighted main attributes needed for his best playing position, which is Deep Lying Playmaker in Defend duty.
We can see from the picture that his Marking, Tackling and Strength didn't improve drastically, changes are in fact very small, which is not a good thing at all. On the other side, his technique attributes got somewhat better so we can declare his develop progress as average.
And for the end let’s take a look of his History Career Stats.
He’s been ever so present for Liverpool throughout his entire career, which is a good thing. But his Average Rating on the other hand, that peeks at 7.34 (mid season), is not something that should greatly encourage us to buy this player.
In conclusion. Jonjo is fairly good player, nothing special. A good signing for mediocre clubs, and his transfer price and wage demands do reflect this statement ideally. Our rating 3 out of 5 stars.
