in real life, when veron left the premier league, he was pretty much labelled a flop because he couldnt perform as he was not afforded the time/space to weave his magic like he might have been used to.

i think i've read players like riquelme also would suffer the same fate ingame and that people have signed him for EPL teams only to underperform, but what is the "telltale" stat(s) in question i should be trying to look for here?

Very few players in game will actually not be able or willing to play well if you set their tactics correctly, it's all about getting his settings done right and keeping on top of his morale so his form doesn't dip

Riquleme didn't do very well at Newcastle for me, but there is of course the well publicized 'AMC Bug' where every AMC playmaker type is getting poor ratings. So he may do better if/when the bug is fixed. I wish they'd hurry up with it, as i always like to play with an AMC playmaker!

but if it isn't a bug...Riquelme's speed and acceleration may be the problem as he is only a 10/11, and he isnt the strongest either.

In FM 07, Spurs, I have had Riquelme and he was/is amazing. I will always remember his 45 yard curling goal into the near corner of the goal.

I also have two defenders who are top class and a midfielder who is solid.

So I've had no problems with Argentines.

I have Aguero and Fazio, at Chelsea who are both amazing, I don't think there is anything in game which means they won't play well, they may have a low adapability stat which would mean they would take a season or two to start playing well.

Adaptability, imo. Unfortunately that's a hidden stat.
