Marc-Andre ter Stegen in Football Manager 2012

Posted: 24 Jun 2012 04:32 AM PDT

Dear readers,

today I would like to analyse Marc-Andre ter Stegen in my FM 2012 story. This is because I bought him for Q.P.R. and can take a deeper look into his performances and development during trainings.

By the way, ter Stegen is listed in my wonderkids list for Football Manager 2012.

Who is Marc-Andre ter Stegen?

In the real life it's the most prospective German goalie, 20 years old now. He helped his club Borussia Gladbach in finishing the 4th and notching up qualification to the Champions League this season.

ter Stegen made a debut for the national team of Germany in the weird 3:5 match against Switzerland. Afterwards he wasn't taken by head coach to Euro 2012. More experienced yongster Ron-Robert Zieler was invited to the squad.



Development during trainings

Ok, let's see what was the influence the default goalkeeper training schedule on ter Stegen.

The German talent had a decent progress. It's very good because ter Stegen age was 24 when he moved to my Q.P.R. Though I understand I got him too late to think he will develop much.

He was very good in Gladbach and still prospective to have some progress in trainings. Therefore I decided to buy him instead of David Ospina who completely stopped progressing.

Interesting to see that the 2nd season for Q.P.R. is going to be much better than the first one! I do think ter Stegen is nearly perfect keeper for my club.

ter Stegen's accurate passing percentage in this season:

Manuel Neuer vs Marc-Andre ter Stegen

Neuer vs ter Stegen

From the comparison above we note ter Stegen lacks Aerial Ability, Reflexes, Rushing Out, Kicking, Anticipation, Positioning, Teamwork, Work Rate, Jumping, Balance, Strength.

I would say Reflexes=13 is the largest weakness.

We see also that ter Stegen excels his countryman Neuer who is one of the best goalkeepers in the world in Communication, Bravery, Concentration, Determination, and Influence. We can make a conclusion ter Stegen is "really more Kahn" than Neuer. He can be a real team captain.


So there it is. And how is ter Stegen good in your Football Manager story? What club is he playing for?

Excited to blog for you,

P.S. Go England! I do believe you will beat Italy tonight!
