I am just wondering if some of you could provide me with detailes about Javier Hernandez. I'm in my 1st season at United and I would like to keep this player long-term. He seems to be a great goalscorer. I played about 5 official games and he has goot rating after every match (7 or higher) but he doesn-t seem to score a lot. I play him as a poacher near Rooney (also poacher). Antonio Valencia turned out to be "damnation to the opposition", with 2 hatricks. The ones of you who played United, how did you manage Javier ?

P.S
I am not complaining that he doesn't score, because it is very early to tell that, and he scored 2 goals. I just want to hear your opinion about playing him.

Play Rooney as a Complete Forward, Advanced Forward or Deep lying forward. Never a poacher mate. Wastes his work rate stuff.

Indeed.

Complete forward allow him to get considerably more assists. Never play two strikers as poachers.

Hernandez is awesome in season 2 onwards averages for me better than a goal a game (check out my javier hernandez the legend post), I play him as a poacher attack, and rooney as complete forward support. Works a treat!!!

Thanks JK

I guess Ryan Giggs will retire soon, and I will need another AML. For the moment I have Eden Hazard, who has a flying start at Man UTD, and Bebe (loaned at Middlesbrough). Is Bebe worthy to be Hazard's reserve in the next season, or should I start scouting for a young AML ? I play the AML as winger - attack.

start scouting bebe is not good enough for united on FM in my opinion Fabio coentrao is good for me but hi natural position is LB

also take a look at these...Andre Schurrle,Neymar,Juan Manuel Mata,David Silva (was unhappy at city in my save so might not join)

@Speedylad123

The players you recomanded me are very good, but they will not accept a Rotation and an Under 80K/wk, and I have Hazard who proved to be an awsome transfer. It would be great if you recomand me a promising AML, so I can rotate with Haz.

P.S Manchester United have a very big debt, so I must control the wages very well, or I will be bankrupt :) I pay loan repaiments about 19M/wk Huge

I neverd did, it's just that this time I wanted to try. I thaught that the wingers will do the setting up, but it turned up to be better the way you said. It's getting better and better.

I like Anderson very much, but he cannot play in my midfield (Ball Winning or Box to Box) so I think about retrain him to AML, he has all the quality and he's young.. What do you say ?

I had played with two poachers with Sunderland in a few matches when my wingers were either injured or tired.. and it didn´t worked so bad .. they score many goals was with D.Bent and A.Ghyan ..
