  1. Mattia Destro

    Hello FM-Base!
    I had a really good 1st season with Derby County, promoting them as 1st place exceeding expecations fairly easy. Was really excited for what players I could get and whatnot. Got Mattia Destro on a free transfer, promising high wages (compared to my other players) and thought that he would carry my team. He scored for fun in the friendly matches and made my expectations really high for him. However he have only scored 1 goal & assisted 1 in 11 matches!
    This was by far not, what I would call carrying.. So my question to you guys; how do I ultimately get the best out of Mattia Destro? What role, what player instructions etc., etc.?

    Thanks in advance!

  2. Really depends on your formation, but can't go wrong with the coverall advanced forward... I will mention that I bought lewandowski at Liverpool and he got 1 goal in his first 11 games! Went on to get 25 for the season though, sometimes it takes players a while to settle! Who were your friendlies against, I'm guessing not the same calibre as the league teams your playing now?

  3. That is true they were not teams of highest calibre, but he did score 2 against Benfica and 2 against Zaragoza. But watching closely to his stats and his game, he actually don't get many shots away, since my team goes for the long shot over passing - a lot! So perhaps it comes down to my tactic. I must try tweaking it a bit so I can keep long shot at a minimum to none!
    Even though I believe the high amount of long shots are a bug in the patch :-(

    Thanks for the tip!

    Yeah I find every other game I have a lot of long shots, even with no long shots selected and shouts keep possession and work ball into box selected! you might want to see how much support he is getting from midfielders making forward runs and inside forwards/wingers?

  5. Just wanted to make an update on him. He's turned into my team carrier as I longed after so bad!
    He's just been called up for Italy, and he is really starting to progress as I expected him to.

    I put him as a Complete Forward (Support) up front in a 4-1-4-1, and it's working terrific. He keeps scoring game deciding goals in the cup aswell, so happy with Destro now. This guy is one of the main reasons why I'm 9th in the PL at the moment (YAY!)
    Absolutely a steal on a free transfer!

    Interesting was going to sign him in my second season for free with Swansea but his massive wage demands where a put off for me!!

  7. DLF he scores 4 fun play maker to pass to his feet

  8. Love a bit of Destro, can be slightly injury prone, but a great all-round forward.

  9. Destrooooo!

  10. He's a complete beast for me.
    I play him in a 442 mainly as a DLF with Cavani partnering him as a poacher.
    Basically play him as a DLF with a poacher, some pacey wingers and you're set.

    Although I played him at the top in a 4-2-3-1 against Barca in the CL semi-final due to an injury crisis and he set up 2 and scored 2 in a 7-0 demolition of Barca To be fair, they did have 10 men for most of the game though
