  2. juan manuel mata was good in fm 2007 but he seems to have been toned down in fm 2008. that’s just my opinion.

  3. everton also have some great kids

    wonderkid: james vaughn
    also good:
    victor anichebe
    jose baxter(amazing)
    lukas jutkiewicz

  4. jose baxter is really good. i manage england in my 6th season and play giles barnes and baxter behind rooney in my formation.

  5. Michael Johnson is a great player
    i managed Man City we finished 2nd.
    My financs were so good i got 20 mil for transfers half way through the season also got Denilson(Arsenal) played next to johnson and wee great.
    Rolando Bianchi got brought into the Italy squad and his price went from 5mil to 14.25mil in one year.

  6. Santon (Inter) “could be the next Demetrio Albertini”
    Some wonderkidz could be: Marcelo (real Madrid), Bolzoni (Inter—>I made him learn 10 special abilities), “super” Mario Balotelli (Inter—> a very good one)

  7. im west brom and in my second season gt promoted and signed ishmael miller (permo) es scored 24 in 25 pure class
    also gt joe hart signed him for £1million now worth £15 n man utd n arsenal want him

  8. When you start game go to crystal palace reserve’s and U18’s. look for :-

    Victor Moses
    Sean Scannell
    John Bostock

    all are 16/17 and haven’t yet signed a full time contract except scannell. all can be brought for around 150k each but give them year in your reserve and they all go 2 £1m plus. in second season play them in cup competition and value shots up again. I’m in my 3rd season and the are all 1st choice players for Tottenham and are all in england s U21 1st team and have a combined value of £20m. there actually really good in real life so nice to see the comparisons in the game.


  9. alexander pato, garath bale, breno, iago, geovanni dos santos, aaron, antonio barragan, micah richards, garay michael johnson, ryan babe,l lucas, dean bouzanis, anderson, aguero

  10. Okaka at Roma, dubbed the next Luca Toni. Think i managed to snaffle him for bout 7m + incentives at end of first season.

    Also, not a wonderkid, but possibly the BEST media comparison: Seb Hines (Boro) DRC, dubbed as the next Wes Brown!!!

  11. Im Managing burnley in england and brought in some amazing young players for cheap, aaritalo, bogden stancu, martin fennin, tommy hoiland, pablo piatti, mikael lustic, jefforey jourdren, all can be bought for under 500k, got promoted in first season and sold aaritalo for 3.4 mill plus sol ki heun

  12. Bouzanis (class)

  22. I’m in my third season as chelsea and yeh i no big money. and there is only really a few players you need.
    Henri Saivet
    David Luiz

    And i’m just wondering what team do i manage what is a challenge but players will join.

  23. Sign Nuri Sahin at any cost !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
    Breno Turns Out Good For Transfer Funds
    Marcel Roman Cheap But Affective
    Balotelli the new Villa
    Arshavin is good For assists and goals
    Lulinha great signing
    Also Kelon is affective
    Alex from fernabache
    Bourc from celtic is a must !

    Can Anyone Recommend any more signings that turnout wonderkids?

    Peace Out

  24. Birmingham Team.

    GK. Oswaldo Sanchez (Nice Solid Keeper)

    DR. Oojer (Fantastic player fans love him, Im sure i got him for quite cheap aswel from blackburn!)
    DC. Ignashevich (c) (Fantastic Defender with great mental stats)
    DC. Schmitz (starts on loan with birmingham, i wish he was this good in real life)
    DL. Danny Murphy (Starts with Birmingham and surprisingly good)

    MR. Arshavin (Suppose to be fantastic and a new signing so im waiting to see his brilliance)
    MC. Muamba (Great Prospect! I suggest mid table teams try to sign him, next Edgar Davids)
    MC. Alexandre Song (Arsenal player on loan, really solid, good for future)
    ML. Kapo (He always has some good matches, never over and over again.)

    SC. James Mcfadden (Top scorer maybe the most realiable player)
    SC. Zaratie (On loan but I’l try and sign him if I get enough funds, You need this player for free kicks he scores 2/3 if he sin the right position

    Maik Taylor (Okay as a backup)
    Nicky Hunt (good solid player, got him on part exchange)
    Boateng (Nice player from middlesbourgh, good backup for injuries)
    Victor Moses (Can’t wait till the next few years when he becomes the strongest he can be, hes already scored 4 goals in 5 games)
    Cameron Jerome (I wouldn’t normally wouldn’t recommend him but he started the season off as the top scorer for the prem for about 3-4 weeks then he got a bad injury, I would recommend for championship teams)

  25. the players above are good players however you have overlooked potentially best striker on the game with henri saivet is oscar trejo aswell as 2 must sign wingers have got to be geovanni nocerino and oscar cardozo they are unreal along with dean bouzanis and joao carlos in goal 2 quality young keepers

  26. sorry i meant neri cardozo and sebastion geovinco they are the 2 real class wingers also jeremy menez is a great back-up winger along side with serge gakpe theyre real class wingers and very young too. no doubt best midfielders to sign are javi martinez, miguel veloso and micheal johnson in my 4th season with liverpool and have an average squad age of 23 am lovin it the players are developin so good.

  27. Wonderkids for Coca-Cola Championship

    Frazier Campbell loaned him from Manchester United, 0 € per week salary, untill end of season – becomes wonderkid after season, he is new Les Ferdinand!!!

    Miralem Pjanic – Metz, Bosnia and Herzegovina wonderkid, in second season was best young player in Premiership with 39 assists!!!

    Patrick Lomski – Finland – wonderkid after season!

    Georginio Wijnaldum – Feyenoord – Wonderkid

    Henry Saivet – Probably best striker in game, wonderkid, Bordeaux

    Lulinha – New Ronaldinho, AMC, i bought him for 4.000.000 € in first season, worths now in 4th season 10.000.000 €

    Pichu Atienza – At. Madrid – Wonderkid brilliant!

    Joao Moutinho,

    Miguel Veloso,

    Rui patricio(young, needs train),


    Ricardo Quaresma,





  36. Gabriel Torje – AMR Poli 1921 – with proper training and match opportunities, after 1,5 year becomes a wonderkid, truly great winger, ideal for spanish or portugese league, even for the biggest teams. in my Arsenal, he’s sent van Persie, Walcott and Hleb on bench.

    Ezequiel Garay – DC, Racing – great defender, fast, can shoot freekicks.

    Micah Richards – DRC, Man City – IMO the best defender in game after a couple of years, fast, strong, greast positioning, tackling, marking… rock solid.

    My Arsenal:


    Daniel Alves–Richards–Garay–Clichy




    van Persie
    Diogo Rosado

  37. Javi Martinez is amazing!!! Miguel Veloso, Rafinha, Armand Traore, Aaron, Carlos Vela, Jose Baxter, Iago, Giovani Dos Santos, Bojan, Guiseppe Rossi and Micah Richards are all quality players! Also, Benoit Costil, a young French goalkeeper who is brilliant.

    I’ve won 3 spanish leagues, 2 spanish cups, a champions league, 2 super cups, a european super cup with Barcelona in 3 seasons!

    My barcelona team:

    GK: Costil(about 20 clean sheets a season, amazing goalkeeper, always pulls off superb saves)
    DR: Dani Alves(quality right back)
    DL: Veloso(can be trained, is competent at beginning)
    DC: Pichu Atienza(solid defender, scores about 3/4 goals a season)
    DC: Micah Richards(c)(solid defender, scores as well)
    MR: Lionel Messi(20+ assists, 10-15 goals a season)
    ML: Iago(brilliant, 20+ assists, about 10 goals)
    MC: Javi Martinez(solid midfielder, scores about 10 goals a season)
    AMC: Carlos Vela(15-20 goals a season)
    ST: Bojan(20 goals a season)
    ST: Guiseppe Rossi(30+ goals a season, amazing player)

    Subs & Reserves:
    Kameni(solid keeper)
    Puyol(old but still good)
    Ronaldinho(is still quality, despite being kept out by Messi, Iago or Vela)
    Dos Santos
    Iniesta(is good but Martinez & Vela keep him out)
    Aaron(quality striker, but Rossi & Bojan keep him out)
    Baxter(scored 4 goals in first 4 games for me, but got injured and is now kept out by Bojan & Rossi)

  57. hey!

    cmon guys, are yo all so stoop? first of all, yo all lose the joy of the game by getting all the talents so easily. cmon, scouting network expanding and other stuffs are made for that.. get the players on plate is shyte.. and do you wanna tell me that you, who are unable to find young guns on your own, yo built an everything-winner squad? cmon, do try to fool me.
    and how can yo afford them all? and how do yo have space? i mean, you subbed the whole squad for new rising stars? then 1st moral must be on floor after selling the half squad (btw how can the former “stars” handle it? or yo sold the fringe players? the fromer key players become fringe players, and they dont like it, morale down, transfer request, etc..), 2nd young guns are not ready yet to win the season, they make coslty mistakes, they tire out sooner, etc. 3rd so many new signings need time to settle in, which can take months or a whole year. (or more..) and how do they communicate? half of them dont speak the same language – even if it matters not SO much in the game, still, it has influence on effiency..

  58. what about the club loyality? you all write, that youre fan of x team, and this is why youre with them.. and there isnt a single lad from the original team in the starting XI. yeah, and what about homegrown players? big teams have fantastic academy, and i cant think bigger joy and success when a rookie guy comes through the ranks and broke into first team.. i think yo really dont get the game.. its not (only) about winning trophies.. its about making a team, having a long term plan.. in the 15th season, when all your wonderkids died and dried out, nah, thats the time when real FM starts for you.. thats when you have to think about scouting players, taking care of youth system, etc.. and i cant imagine better fate, when a former youth level guy stun the mother club, which didnt even give a shiit for him..
    Try with some lowel level club, and you will realize, what really fm is about.. when you cant afford all the lads, you dont and cant have a superior squad, due the lack of funds, or reputation, when you must develop players, using loan tricks, have to make a good tactic, fill the holes, try to cover, get over injury crisis, etc..
    Good luck!:)

  59. Im starting a season with Nottingham Forest and plan to return them to the glory days in the premiership.. not alot of money… any recommendations on gd young talent to sign… cheers

  60. Sotiris Ninis is the best young player who i’ve ever signed..
    i bought him for only $2.1 mil, now he is the most expensive player in my blackburn team (beat santa cruz or diego)..
    he got “best young player” in his 2nd year (runner up in 1st year)..Many huge teams want him (barca, chelsea, bayern, inter, man utd)

    Must have young player:
    ninis, jimenez, cahais, ever guzman, diego, saivet, samba (solid CB), de jong, defour

    Must have old crack:
    friedel, ooijer, maccarthy, ignashevich, reid

    Not popular, but very good:
    khizanisvilli, nelsen

  61. GK – Sörensen, Laudicia (18 years old) and Olejnik
    DL – Bouma, Bale (very prospected), Lowry (young player)
    DC – Ridgewell, Cahill, Manciene (very good young ex-chelski player), Sidnei and Melberg (old but experienced)
    DR – Delaney and Earls (young player)
    DM – Lucas (did well also plays good as MC), Alexander Song (young ex-arsenal) and Perez
    ML – Barry (world class)
    AML – Iago (17 years old!!!) and Stieber (young player middle average plays also good as AMC)
    MC – Davis (did well), Osbourne (did well)
    ST – Agbonlahor (world class became England National Staff), Carew (class player) and Moore (20 years old player wanted by Man U, Arsenal and Liverpool)

  62. Tom elliot From leeds, amazing,if your a big club buy him he will be a decent premiership striker in the future.alsowhen you buy him he becomes dubbed as the new les ferdinand.


  63. I’m looking for DL. I’m playing with team finished on place 4th in the Premier League. Suggestions? 10x 🙂

  64. you all are missing one big player. stevan jovetic, im in 3 season, he is scoring at every match.
    aleandro gomez, piatti, giovincooo, banega rulz..
    but jovetic, u gotta lov him hh

  65. Keeper
    vincent enyeama

    reginiussen (tromsø)
    pichu Atienza
    Breno (san paulo)

    Tettey (rosenborg)
    skjelbred (rosenborg)
    lulinha (cor… brazil)
    Merida (Arsenal)
    Sosnin (russia)
    alex (vasco)

    liviu ganea
    van der vaart HSV

  66. U should try Bogdan Stancu, he is the new Theirry Henry!Or Salif Nogo!This player has 20 years,is from Burkina Fasso But is plaiyng better than allesandro nesta!

  67. I am managing Barcelona,And i am in 2017.I found a youngster named Guilhermo Gomez Gomez( spanish keeper,even better than Petr Cech) From a lower team from spain,I took him in 2014 for my second squad and now he is the best keeper in the world : = )!Manchester United wants him for 68 millions lol but i wont sell him!Barca FOREVER!

  68. Mika Aaritalo is a great player, i always seem to have him in my teams because he’s so cheap. 150k for a 15-20 goal a season striker (thats just in the prem) on top of that he will sign for pretty much anyone as low as league 1.

    Lauri Dalla Valle is a great investment, I have signed him in the past for 0k + 5% of next sale + friendly with Jippo (his team) and sold him on a few years later for £2m although if you want to wait till he’s a bit older he becomes a good amc for a mid table prem team or a sub for a top team.

    I like to start out as a small team and get them as far as i can. the best players to buy are the ones who can win matches but cost as little as possible.

    Here are some of the best i’v found:

    Mika Aaritalo – aml/st
    Bogdan Stancu – fc
    Jamie OHara – mc
    Dickson Choto – drc
    Guilherme – wbl
    Sebastian Gonzalez – st (needs a work permit which is nearly impossible to get)
    Derek Boateng – mc
    Micheal Woods – mc (after a season or so this guy gets really good)

  69. Cheap Wonderkids

    Anton Sosnin
    Sotiris ninis
    Victor moses
    Erkin caner
    Kieran Lee
    Jonathan evans
    Omar esparza

  70. sign billy sharp and danny haynes

    signed billy sharp for wba midway through first season scored 26 goas in 22 games plays well with haynes who scored 27 in 36

  71. Edgar Loue. Lo fiche por 625K en la 1. temporada con el Mallorca del RC Strasbourg. Defensa fisico muy duro.
    Ahora en la tercera temporada esta valorado en 7.5M y de es el mejor cabeceador de la liga española. 55 partidos 25 goles. y es DC. sin duda para los que no tengan presupuesto un fichaje a tener en cuenta.
    mi aliniacion:

    G. Lux (portero)
    D. Tiendalli (DR)
    J.M. Vargas (DL)
    Loue (DC)
    Sakho (DC)

    Arturo Vidal (DM)
    Xabi Prieto (AMR)
    Arango (AML)
    Matias Fernandez (AMC)

    Uche (ST)
    Saviola (ST)

  72. si me podeis dar consejos de fichajes o asi, lo agradeceria. en verano me vienen thiago neves, y mata.

  73. Jonathan Urretavizcaya plays for River Plate (URU) is probably one of the best strikers in the game. He scored 35 goals in 21 games in my first season with Hull City. He is also a wonderkid and wanted by Chelsea, Manchester United, Barcelona, AC Milan and Juventus.

  74. Athletico Madrid are a great team to start with, you can attract some great players without having a massive amount of pressure to win everything.

    In the first season I sold Simao for 14m as well as 3 other players for about 5-6m each.

    I signed:
    – Per Mertesacker 7.5m Weder bremen
    – Raul Albiol 8m Valencia
    – Javi Martinez 6m Bilbao
    – Dominico Criscito 4m Juventus
    – Armand Traore 3m Arsenal
    – Gonzalo Castro 3.5m Leverkusen

    – Bojan FREE!! I scouted him and was told “Bojan would probably be available for a bid of £0” i had a go and the offer was accepted, i had to wait until the end of the season because he had been moved to Barca C which counted as his one permitted transfer for the season.

    I also signed Saivet, Sakho, Marin, Wijnaldum, Merida and Woods on youth contracts with a small amount of compensation going to their previous owners.

    My starting line up was

    —————Leo Franco—————


    ——-R Garcia——-J Martinez——-

    Maxi R—————————L Garcia



    Abiatti GK

    Sakho DLC
    Criscito DRLC

    Woods MC
    Wijnaldum MC/AMRLC
    Reyes AMRLC/FC

    Saivet AMRL/ST

    I ended up winning the spanish league on goal difference over Barcelona, got to the final of the cup and won the uefa cup.

    Aguero ended up scoring 81 goal (no joke) thanks to all the early 2 leg rounds in the euro vase and uefa cup matches against terrible teams from Belarus and the like. He finished with over 30 goals in continental competitions.
    He also went up in value from 10.5m to 34.5m in one season, he chose me and nearly the whole squad as he favorite personnel and when Chelsea made a £50m bid, the chairman accepted but Aguero rejected it saying he wanted to continue working with me! How sweet!
    What I’m trying to say is that he’s awesome, sign him if you have the chance.

  75. dentinho-bloody amazing stricker 1st season 10-20 goals
    he gets even better second season
    balotelli- 20+ goals in 1st season
    giampoalo pazzini- 30+ goals in his 1st season, as good as drogba
    giles barnes- becomes better than joe cole and malouda
    breno- one of the best wonderkids in the game

  76. yo ppl

    just by alves,messi,totti,fabino,bale and iniesta and you will b winning evry leuge there is!!!!!!!!!

  77. best team in game:

    micah richards david luiz zapata gareth bale

    silva adrien ever banega guardado

    vela bojan

    othergood players: witsel,barkroth,aaritalo,stancu,lulinha,ramon,kerlon,saivet,
    david jones,traore,esparza,bocaly,lloris,insua,bueno

    p.s bouzanis is a must buy im in season09/10 and had played him the whole of last season he practicaly won the league for me ,,now AC milan,man U,barcelona,chelsea,inter,lyon,arsenal,…to many to mention about 20 or so teams all want him

  78. My Man City side.

    GK – Hugo Lloris
    DR – Moritz Volz
    DL – Stephen Warnock
    DC – Micah Richards
    DC – Vedran Corluka
    MR – Asamoah Gyan
    ML – Martin Petrov
    MC – Gelson Fernandes
    MC – Michael Johnson
    AMC – Elano
    FC – Marouane Chamakh

    Subs – Schmeichel, Onouha, Garrido, Nordveit, Barazite, Ireland, Caicedo

    Back-Up – Geovanni, Hamann, Benjani

    Hugo Lloris is a definite signing. Volz from fulham is a good value signing. Struggle to find a decent left-back but Warnock requested a transfer. Gyan quickly becomes fan-favourite. Chamakh was brought in to replace Benjani. Benjani had an exellent first season but rapidly declines. Hamann has a good first season but can barely run in the second. Elano is good but injured often. Barazite from Arsenal is good but not too often to start with.

  79. brato vzemi Manchester City/Arsenal/Birmingham/Manchester United (with Vidic!!!)/Tothnem/Barcelona/Rangers/Palermo
    Tuk v po-gornite post ima taktika/shemi na teja otbori 😉

  80. buy marko marim from R.Madrid is a sensation in the future

    and if you need a GK get vincent Enyama from a club in Turkey for about 5-6 mill.

    Van Der Vaart and De Jong from HSV both canm be bought for 10-14m each great signing.

    landon donavon ios a good siigning and plays real well for about 4m
    Paris Cowan-Hall and lauri dalla Valle star is the 18s for my portsmouth team

  81. try to play with team from east europe (serbia romania hungary) and you’ll see how dificult is to sign a player who comes on foot at the most team in england italy spain
    if you play in this countryes you feel like a real manager

    Higuain Now Worth *28* Million

  89. try: Sergio Mota aged 17 from sao paulo. Becomes a top premier midfielder within a few years. Thiago aged 19 from the same team also shapes up to be a top player after a cupple of seasons

  90. Some players :
    Andrea luci (very good DM )

    Try THIS PLAYERS !!!!

  91. dzsudzsack – signed for 100-200k and is the best player for the championship, good signing for premier divison
    gabriel torje – rips up the championship and premiership defences
    bogdan stancu – fantastic in the championship, scored 6 games in a row for my sheff utd team. position on (fc) but play him as left winger and he is quality.
    pablo piatti – decent for championship teams, fantastic for the premiership in 2nd season.
    augustin delgado – 32 but is one of the best strikers for the championship.
    franco di santo – only 18 and his stats are that of a premiership strikers !
    billy sharp – available in the january transfer window for around 8m, one of the best strikers on the game.
    agouda – brilliant players, fantastic stats for scoring but he is very hard to sign because of work permit problems. editor is the best option. (if you cant find editor it is –
    C:/program files/sports interactive/football manager 2008/dator editor)
    martin donnelly from sheff utd, says he isnt very good, but in the championship he is beaut.
    tom elliot from leeds – sign him for newcastle and have martins to tutor him, he becomes a vital player after a season.
    ben turner – young coventry defender, performs well in the premiership and is quality in the championship, after a season, he is a comparison to nemanja vidic.

  92. i forgot to mension marc furniss from sheff utd, sign him and let your best keeper tutor him. i used him in my second season, a premiership season and he kept me up, just about every save he made was said to have been “quality” or something like that.

  93. Pato rocks on my Milan, with Kaka behind him, Torje very good, buy cheap and his price blow even if he plays on ur youth team

  94. Heyy,
    I am the manager of Birmingham, I’ve just started my second season and this is the team that you need, they are all really cheap and really effective, the team is so much better!!!

    GK. Enyeama- Nigerian number 1, he won’t sign for you in the first transfer window but he will maybe in january or the start of the second season.(1. 6 mil)

    DL Bale- Awesome player, but he won’t come in the first season, I finished ninth and he wanted to come straight away. (Around 10 mil).

    DC Baloy- Unknown defender but is actually awesome!!!(1.6 mil).

    DC Ignashevich- awesome defender, my vice captain, if you don’t get ignashevich, try and get asatiani, but if you wanna get asatiani for free, he will come in december.(hes free).

    DR I don’t have a DR worth recomending, just look on the player search for someone, but Brett Emerton or Chimbonda would be good.

    ML Dzsudszak- I think that’s how you spell his name, just type in DZSU and he’ll come up, better than Kapo, give him time, he’s young and will be awesome, hes a good skillful player, and you can buy him for like 250k

    MC. Marek Sapara, the best midfielder in my team by far, he is awesome, must buy for a birmingham side, about 1.6 mil

    MR. Fernando Arce or Ali Karimi, buy both of them, one will be your CAM no worries, they are both great players, Arce is 1.4 mil and Karimi is 2.5 mil, great goalscorers and playmakers.

    CAM. Luis Jiminez- Chile player, buy him for like 1.3 mil and is a FANTASTIC player, no lies, he won’t come in the first season though, because he is on loan at InterMiland, that’s how good he is.

    CAM Either Arce of Karimi again

    ST. Either choose from Vuoso or Kikin Fonsesca- Both great strikers, Fonsesca scroed 24 in 33 in my first season, top scorer and Vuoso is a great striker too 13 in 24, i did a rotation system in my first season. Vuoso- 1.5 mil and Fonsesca is the same amount as he is when you go to bid for him.

  95. aissati bale aaron vela javi martinez saivet bojan g.dos santos wijnaldum hazard lullinha drenthe marcelo lucas(LIVERPOOL) pato balotelli altidore breno micahrichards juanmanuelmata andycaroll bendthner walcott denilson higuan johnobimikel………dats all i rememba

  96. help me to sign DR… i’m inter in my season 2, maicon just move to Barca, and J.zaneti to old 4 me… please… i try to buy any star like van bore, de sav, rafinha, ramos, alves, ilsniho, etc but they manager rejected to any cost… thx

  97. To me and a holoe load of people sergio aguero is the most effective player in the game and gets into scoring rapidly , a 1-2-3-2(wide)-2 works best wid aguero part of ur two strikers its deadly uses tothenham and beat evri team I cross over 5 goals

  98. I from bulgaria and i play with CSKA(sofia)

    my team is:


  99. ————– Buffon/Cech/Casillas ————————
    Daniel Alves Richards John Terry Chiellini/Marcelo

    Gerard Fabregas Pirlo silva Ronaldhino Ronaldo Messi

    Ibrahimovic Villa Aguero rooney etc etc etc

  100. dean bouzanis,eduardo,dor malul,yegor filipenko, breno, javi martinez,andrea luci,sebastian giovinco,miralem pjanic,daren bent,martins

  101. also if u r a 2nd division b in spain GET ARIEL MONTENEGRO!!!!! he is awesome. also Sivori, Camacho, Joshua (both Athletico Madrid) and Sergio Tejera, Chelsea I got them all as Zamora and I got to 2nd.
