i haven't seen any clinical striker since FM 2008, so if you saw one please screen shot both description and attributes pages. or atleast tell me you've seen one. so that i can hope find one in the future and make him score 50 goals/season :)
well 1 striker can't do the job, ive never had a player score 50goals in one season for me, i think top has been 40 something. but was he clinical? not really it was more like my team scored loads in most matches and my strikers scored the extra goals in certain matches. even though they were quite so consistent, it wasnt like they scored every match(so quite so realistic in that feature). i feel that u need to have a good rotation system and maybe hope for around 2 strikers to be able to net 20+ each in max 35-40 apps if ur a top team.

but if u want someone who can score loads i think u need a Javier Hernandez type player, i would call him as being quite clinical in the game. u can find a few of those like Obinna and Delfoneuso(sp?).

but often a good team underneath them will help them achieve loads of goals per season.
probably the most clinical striker ive signed on fm 2011 is ruud van nistelrooy. i know his age is still against him . but his finishing , concentration , composure are all 20.. and hardly misses in front of goal
i think you have misunderstood. i'm rotating pato and kun agüero at arsenal as lone striker atm, they are doing just great. i am asking if player description "clinical striker" is still available?

thanks for the responses tho :)

Yes it is, when I was managing Bristol City it was the description of Nicky Maynard for many'a year :)
Here I got some screenshots for you ;)
This striker named Pablo Britos is a clinical striker :)

Though I think this Ajax striker might be even better... (he also scores much more! But he is not a 'clinical striker' but just a 'striker')

thank you a lot for the screenshots, i'll proceed to my expedition again then :)
I don't understand though why you want a 'clinical striker'. Surely they are often good, but as I showed with the third screenshot, there are also amazing strikers without the description 'clinical striker'.
i'm kinda obsessed with it :)
I'm happy with a win, or draw in most cases. In the same fashion as "Cs get Degrees"; the object is purely to outscore the opposition. In my humble opinion.

In the same breath, Zonnegod, those strikers look fantastic, you reckon they'd want to sign for a BSP side in the Jan window? ;-)

Guys I took on D. Alaves in 2010 and I am right now 22 yrs later so if I show you my players and all the regens of the game your jaw will fall down to the ground!
Let me explain that, clinical strikers are not enough you must have first a clinical gk and defense and of course clinical midfielders and wingers and of course good personality tags and good coaches what I am trying to say is your TEAM as a whole must evolve to the point where everything will play their part...!

90 goals a season good enough?

My Argentian Striker had last year:

33 league matches: 51 goals
5 cupmatches: 16 goals
13 CL matches: 20 goals
2 WCC matches: 3 goals

Nice striker you have there mdlp1991 ;)

(Dutch)
Netjes trouwens dat je DZC naar de Eredivisie, wat zeg ik, de Champions league hebt weten te brengen! Heb je een editor of Genie Scout gebruikt? :P Want zelf ging ik een eerste divisie club (Veendam) proberen de champions league in te krijgen maar de Eredivisie titel had ik pas voor het eerst in 2019 ofzo.. En champions league heb ik in de halve finale gestaan dacht ik :)

(English)
Very nice by the way, that you managed to bring DZC to the Eredivsie and even the Champions League! Did you use an editor or Genie Scout? Because, I attempted to bring an Eerste Divisie club (BV Veendam) into the champions league, but I only managed to grab the Eredivisie title in 2019 or something.. And in the Champions League, I have managed to reach the semi-finals :)

(Lost semi finals against man utd :( )

Edit: English
@ Zonnegod:

Yeah It's a really Nice Striker.

I'll talk further in English, so the other people can read along, you can write in Dutch if you want:

I'm scouting on my own, and every player I think is just a little interesting is scouted. And I'm always playing with a large pool f players, so i can keep up with injury's. I was lucky I had an overtake when I came in Topklasse, and I got a sugardaddy. I once had 109 non-losing streak, which was broke by Arsenal in the Emirates Stadium, 6-4 loss, 4-2 with halftime. Since then I had only lost matches: the quarterfinal CL away game, and 2 Competition matches agaisnt Ajax and Feyenoord. The Olympics were busy when those matches were, and I lost 2/3rd of my squad.

While making my squad, i only have 2 rules: At least 5 Dutchmen are with the squad, and all the players I use are Dutch/Brazilian/Argentinian. I only have 1 exception, but that is because he's too damned good (my second striker)
@mdlp1991

Impressive! How long did it take you to reach the Eredivisie? And how much money did your sugar daddy inject into your club? I remember that I found it very difficult to get players to sign for a low-profile club, but maybe your sugar daddy's money managed to glue supply and demand together? ;)

I just reopened my Veendam save this evening and managed to get a 34 year old Wayne Rooney to play for me in 2020 :) However
