FM 12: Good Lone Striker in Season 2

Recommended Posts

I'm playing as Spurs and getting ready for Champions League football in Year 2. Adebayor and Defoe have both been solid, and I have Yaya Sanogo out on Loan to get him ready for the future. I'm looking for a solid 3rd striker to give me some depth with an eye towards the future. I have about 12 million pounds to spend. Sparta Prague wants 17 million plus for Kadlec, which is ridiculous at this stage. I'd be willing to splash out big money over 48 months for Leandro Damiao, since there's a chance he ends up a Spur IRL.

I'm looking for some other suggestions of solid strikers in the 20-25yo range that could be had for 12 million pounds. I play a 4-2-3-1 so they would need to do well as a lone striker.

Thanks.

Thanks, welshace. I have been pouring over the good striker thread and got a lot of interesting names.

I've got an offer to buy Wilfried for 9.5mil (including incentives) and/or loaning Paloschi (with an option to buy for 5mil). I'm scouting Emineke now.

Based on everyone's experience with FM12 (I'm in my first save...late adopter, I know), which of those three guys would you roll with?

wilfried will be injured 6 out of 12 months a year.. paloschi cant really do it on his own upfront.... but emineke can

but see if you can get doumbia, damiao or rondon first

This is exactly the help I was looking for! Thanks a bunch. Rondon got moved in the last roster update, so he might be harder to pry loose, but I'll take a look at Doumbia or a huge offer for Damiao. In season 1 it was going to take 25+ to get him. But I might pull the trigger anyways, as he would be my striker of the future.

Carlos Fierro might be worth a punt he's pretty young so maybe need an extra year before he'l bang them in.

Welshace - I took another look at Wilfried. Why would he be injured so often if his Natural Fitness is 18. In his past season, his only injury was a broken jaw. But nothing indicative of athletic/training injuries.
