Career history stats
Future of English football scene, next Chris Waddle or the first Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain. Lad fairly popular to most of Football Manager 2014 players, and one of the most expensive wonderkids that we’ll do a review on. Is he the England’s next big thing or England’s next big flop, let’s take a look.
His starting attributes do look fairly good, and do make him a player that can easily make an immediate impact at any FM 2014 side. His strongest area of the game is his speed, while specific aspect would be his relishing of playing important matches. Yet, his weakest area of the game is his teamwork.
One more good thing about him is his versatility. Not only that he is a natural at the right midfield side of the pitch, but the fact that he can equally adapt at playing both in the centre and at the left side, make this young player a very desirable one to have. He is also competent to play as a striker.
His development was not as great as we would expect, but far from it that it was bad. Most noticeable development can be seen in his technical an mental categories, whilst his physical attributes remained fairly the same as they we’re at the start of the game.
He is not a constant performer, due to his injury proneness. But he does provide some goals and assists throughout the seasons, so not bad but not a world class performer either. He managed to cap 81 appearance for English national side and add 14 goals in the process, which is quite an accomplishment.
We have no clue what would his estimated cost be, but seeing from his career history, Man UTD did mange to buy him from Arsenal for £23M four seasons into the game. So our best guess is that would be his marginal cost if you’re considering of purchasing him for your team in FM14.
So, a good solid young player, that can play any position in the midfield and even adapt the striker role easily, yet he does cost a lot. Good, yet not the best we found in Football Manager 2014.
