FM17: Hull City Player Ratings Revealed

Here's the Hull City team on Football Manager 2017 with all the player ratings and values revealed and broken down to help you understand your squad.


Hull City are actually in a bit of difficult position when you take over. You start with a very small transfer and wage budget and quite a serious shortage of players in key position, namely central defence. An injury or two and you’d have a crisis on your hands.

Make sure you invest wisely and they key would be to sign young players for a small fee that can develop into stars. You could even look to sell them on in the future for a large profit to subsequently reinvest into your team.

Hull’s transfer and wage budgets are as follows:

Transfer budget: £6,000,000

Wage budget: £698,778

GOALKEEPERS

GoalkeeperAllan McGregor3334Scotland£750k
GoalkeeperDavis Marshall3.53.531Scotland£6m

Marshall will be your best bet for number one as he’s half a star better rated than McGregor. However, both are now in their thirties and signing a young back-up may be in your best interests.

DEFENDERS

DefenderMichael Dawson3.53.532England£800k
DefenderCurtis Davies3.53.531England£3.3m
DefenderHarry Maguire3.53.523England£5.25m
DefenderMoses Odubajo3.53.522Nigeria£10m

Hull have a serious shortage of defenders and reinforcing their weak defence will be crucial if you want to keep them in the Premier League. Andrew Robertson is the standout defender as he has the potential to rise to 4.5 stars. You should look to replace Dawson and Davies who are 32 and 31, respectively. However, not immediately as Hull lack central defenders as it is and you will have to keep them on, even just as cover, for the first year at least.

MIDFIELDERS

MidfielderJarrod Bowen1.53.519England£180k
MidfielderShaun Maloney3333Scotland£220k
MidfielderSam Clucas3.5325England£7m

You actually start with a fair amount of midfielders, all of which are pretty decent, in truth. The lowest rated are Maloney and Clucas at three-star potential, whilst Henriksen and Snodgrass have the ability to rise to four stars. Snodgrass will be your key man. Strength in depth is important given the low quality of defenders as your best chance of surviving may be by playing a five-man midfield. It might be worth sending Bowen on loan if he’s not going to be getting game time, or moving him to your reserve squad.

STRIKERS

StrikerAdama Diomande2.52.526Norway£2.2m
StrikerAbel Hernandez3.53.525Uruguay£9m
StrikerGreg Luer1.52.521England£180k

You’re not short of options up front either, with the Hull squad boasting five strikers. It may be worth moving Diomande on to pastures new as he’s 26 with no chance of improving and £2.2million won’t go amiss in Hull’s small coffers.
