    Default Is this the best return from a Midfielder ever?

    Just finished my 3rd season in the Argentina Primera Division and teh stand out player ws a certan Mr. Riquelme;



    Now I don't think I have ever seen a midfielder especially one who plays in the DMC position as he does in my team ever have such an awesome return.


    here is how I set him up;




    He is set as my free kick and penalty taker as well.


    In all my years of playing FM I think this is the best season any1 player has given me.

    Your player instructions there suggest that while playing in the DMC role, he will spend little time there. Probably why he was able to help out so much up front.

    No, those are the normal stats [afaict]. You're the last person who can accuse others of cheating tbh.

    No but I use a specialist training which I downloaded here I think djwilster put it up, which works very very well for me, I have also invested heavily on bringing decent coaches, his morale has been superb all seson and he has stayed pretty much injury free, so I think it all adds up.

    Thats i brilliant never seen anything like it, I have had a player get 41 assists and 25 goals fomr AMR but that performance is a hell of alot better than my player. Well done.

    It doesnt look like that stats are edited those are the ones he starts with, strange how on these forums people see something they couldnt do and all of a sudden its cheating.

    Insane stats and production. 50 Appearances with 54 Goals, a load of helpers & is MoM in almost half of his games. His Average Rating blew me away the most!

    Odd that he is listed as DMC as his stats - particularly his tackling, marking, speed, bravery & workrate - are all relatively weak for what I consider a lead DMC.

    Aside: Which skin is that?

    You know whats a shame though as my league rep isn't up their with europes he wouldn't be considered for world player of the year. Saying that its probably realistic though, for him not to be considered.

    edit, its Klasa

    If they were his stats in the real world he would have to be nominated although its not really World Player of the Year its World player of the year that plays in europe but thats another topic lol.

    What formation do you play?

    I have had a look at your tactic a few times as I was planning on starting a game with Boca or a game in Brazil never got round to it in the end though.

    Reminds me of Liam Trotter when I had him on loan at Braintree (slightly different standards I know). He got the same amount of goals and assists and, rather unsurprisngly, Ipswich wouldn't let me keep him.

    If I said no, would you hold it against me lawd?

    Riquelme is a classy player though.

    That is a very very impressive scoring record there by Riquelme , lawd. On a seperate note - I never noticed how many 20 attributes the guy had!

    How does the stats of a 30 year old go up significantly by the time he's 33 regardless of any training schedule??

    e.g. his balance is 13 in my game at 30 years old and he's 20 at 33 years old in yours ???

    I've never seen his, or anyone's, stats that good before.

    It's great playing in South America, though, every game has about 8 or 9 goals.

    Sorry, just gotta laugh at the OP's blatant denial about editing his stats - and it ain't just the physical stats btw...

    That being said, he is an awesome player but keep in mind that at 30 he is at or just past his peak and you won't ever get the player that is portrayed here without editors.

    I second that. He is immense in this game, especially for a player who can be picked up relatively cheaply

    Of course they have. Most of those twenties are usually 19s. His physical stats are much more impressive than at the start of the game (ie balance is usually closer to 10). And he's 33! So he would have started to decline physically.

    I bought him in the first season of my man city save, helped me win the league twice in a row. Without doubt a fantastic buy at £16m i never regret buying him, i play him in AMC with robinho on left and SWP on right.

    I had a season (my first on FM09, unpatched) with Chelsea, where Lampard scored 40 goals in 38 league games and had 15 assists.

    Given that I didn't edit him and it was in the Prem, I think that's a much better return.

    OMG cant believe this guy is trying to say he hasnt edited the stats! Riquelme's stats arent even as good as that at the start of the game let alone at 33!

    Lawd is a nice guy. I've talked to him in the Boca Juniors thread in the Good Player & Team Guide. JR Riquelme's return is very impressive even if his attributes have been modified by lawd.

    I modify the attributes of some players, too, in order to match my perception of their abilities.

    He must have edited his PA and CA as well, no player would have 17 stats at 20 when he is 33...

    I think it was in FM07 that Olivier Kapo literally never played below an 8, or ended a match without a goal or an assist.

    ....then I saw him actually play for Birmingham. There's nothing worse than when you see an FM legend play in real life (Simon Vukcevic was equally disappointing, and I'm avoiding watching Matias Fernandez)

    Yeah Kapo was quality stuff in FM for a while. Then again it's so rewarding finding that young guy and then watching him play IRL and he rocks it. Happened to me back in CM there was a young mc, Olexandr Aliev. Was so amazing for my Wolfsburg side. Then I got to watch him in the U-21 championship game vs netherlands and I was so happy to finally see him play
