I'm managing Blackburn so have uncovered David Hoilett (young reserve striker) as a bit of a starlet. His overall is only 68 but he's a great finisher. He's very quick too.
Anyone else found any young stars at their clubs?
It seems to me that some young players are far better than their overall score - sort of like the way you used to be able to buy class young players in Championship Manager.
Macheda at United is very good, he's a quailty finisher and is a bit of a beast in the air, he wins more headers than Rooney.
Agreed on Macheda, tried him out in the Carling Cup and his finishing is exellent. Also Zoran Tosic's free kicks are outstanding and Darren Gibson's long shots are up there with Lampard's. Would reccommend those 3.
Mark Quigley at St Patricks Athletic and Billy Kee and J.Miles at Accrington Stanley.
midfielders: gibson(united, long shots and passing), inler(udinese, passing, shooting, reading the game)
strikers: daniel sturridge(chelsea, fast and good all round) showunmi (leeds, really strong and fairly good finisher, good in air, dirt cheap)
Frank Fielding at Blackburn is an excellent young 'keeper. He was England U21 'keeper there for a while so that's probably why.
I Would recomment Dos santos for Tottenham. he is quick and a great finisher(scored a lot of lobs with him!!) but he lacks some aerial presence and a bit of strength! a good addition though late in a game!!
im united in my game. For many of my league cup and Fa cup games i throw out mostly youngsters. Im very fond of Macheda, Welbeck, Gibson, Da Laet, the Da Silva twins, Da Laet, Tosic and Obertan. Gibson and Welbeck are pretty much in my squad for all league matches and the rest of the above listed are on border line of the first team.
Great youngsters at United FTW!
Nile Ranger from Newcastle..... That is all.
if you can afford him, mario balotelli off inter milan is quality, so is daivde santon.
falcao off porto is good aswell, bought him with QPR and he is banging them in
Does anyone else have trouble buying players with lower division teams? I'm using Brighton to get the achievement for 2 straight promotions and get them to be a 5 star rated team in 5 seasons but cant seem to sign any players cos they're not interested in joining!
Offer them higher wages than they're already on and they should come. If you hold down the arrow button on the wages column when you're making an offer the interest bar will start to go up after a while
Sorry Moon, Cristiano doesn't join clubs he has never heard of!!!
Moon?? Definitely not me anyway
