Sebastiano Esposito

Recommended Posts

I have been playing FM for the last 8 editions and never have I seen a player be so effective or score so much, just had to lay it out here. Signed from Inter for 40M in my Atalanta save, he broke the all-time club league goalscoring record (103) in two seasons and a half, and the rest is history:

I have never seen any player score 50 goals in 37 league matches. I played him as an IF (A) in my anti-possession high-intensity tactic (which i might write a post about):

Curious how you guys found him since it looks like in my save he's capped at around 155PA compared to much higher versions in other saves i've seen :)

Very interested about this as I can't get him to score a lot and I was thinking myself to try him out in a AML-position. He looks like a beast in your game.

I agree. He's disgusting.

Sounds like you play a similar formation and style as me but I use 3CB and 2AF

I had him for 2 seasons on-loan with Parma, I had to shunt him out wide since I was only playing one upfront. My initial plan was for him to play AML.

Didn't help that Martinelli was available after he arrived at Parma, so I tried Esposito both at AMR and AML without much success.

IRL he does play more off-center to the left (mostly because of Lukaku and Martinez), but I think in theory it should be a good position for him at AML. I just couldn't get him to perform since Martinelli played better there since he was more natural at AML.

Its very strange how on Inter team he was not anything special, barely scored around 10 goals a season. Was expecting him to get the same numbers as he has on your team. Inter is a strong team, so its really mind blown how he got so good when he joined your team. I play almost same tactic as you and he doesnt score as much. Maybe around +-10 goals. Its true i started just this season playing him as IF on the left side, so I guess he will get better on the wing position over the time.

Altough he was very good in the attacking tactics where i played him alongside Fabio Silva. He was the best striker in the EPL for my Leeds side that year. I also tried him as a solo forward but didnt find any success with that.

I'm just hoping he gets his scoring the goals instict back on the AML (IF A).

In my Leicester save, I paid £25 m for him in 20/21 but he played only a bit part throughout the season. In 21/22, he was one of my regular ST in a 442 and he was immense. I'll be fighting off bids for him soon, without a doubt.

Do you still using it? I'm curious as I'm usually struggle to have high scoring forwards in FM20.

He is incredible! Only got him on loan for 2 seasons and he has been scoring plenty in serie B for me. As I play with smaller teams in all my saves, I’ve never been able to sign him permanently.

What’s his best position and best role? I got him from Inter but just started the game

Ive just started an Inter save and noticed this chap, promoted him to the first team straight away. Currently playing a system with 2 up front (Lukaku and Martinez). Does he become better than either of these 2?

I managed to sign Esposito in my third season at Derby (Promoted first season)

He took about 12 games before finally scoring, but since then has not looked back.

I shall post screenshots when I am home, but he has been sensational for me.

Skin is my own (it's a mix of a few bits from different skins, based on the standard skin with transparency - if you want it, PM me and I'll send you a link).

Rest of my packs are here:

Managers/Staff Background Pack

Nations & Continents Background Pack

Competitions Pack

Stadium Pack

Long Team Names - English Leagues

In every save I’ve had this year, regardless of who he plays for, he becomes one of the best strikers in the game (always AI controlled teams because I play smaller team/nation saves so never can buy him)
