Welcome to the first and best list of wonderkids in FM 2011 by FMScout.com. I have dedicated many hours into producing this list to make sure this is really the greatest wonderkids list around the web.

As of 17 March the list is revised and updated for latest patch 11.3, and extends to 385 players introducing recommendation stars!
Easily the most in-depth and well-presented list of the best young players in Football Manager 2011.

What are wonderkids?
Remember that by wonderkids, we are referring to players with amazing potential ability and great or decent current ability up to the age of 20.
We cannot reveal CA/PA because it would be against the rules of SI.

Let's see the best young players in FM 2011, some of them are already wonderkids, other are pretty close and there are also the ones that have the potential but it's not certain they will make it before they turn 21!

Discussion on "Football Manager 2011 Wonderkids"

Group Stam2011-03-17 23:00
@flatLINE:
Thanks for your kind words. I'm very proud of this list and it appears that my efforts have been rewarded with a great amount of views no other page on this site can match through the years.
For this last update I didn't just include players based on a minimum potential ability, but also made sure to include others with lower potential who are good enough to be here.

By introducing recommendation stars I'm hoping this is enough help for fellow managers as an indication of each player's potential brilliance; for most of them I tried to have their attributes for consistency and coping with big occasions as extra important factors. To be honest though I didn't take into consideration their numbers for professionalism, determination and sportsmanship.

Revealing anything that exclusively appears on the game is illegal, except screenshots perhaps (then again I'm guessing extensive use of screenshots might be a problem).

flatLINE®2011-03-17 22:33
Despite not using lists such as these myself, it's an impressive and a very generous contribution. If I may add a suggestion, combination of Determination/Ambition/Professionalism is the factor that enables the player to get from his Current Ability to his Potential Ability, provided he has quality training and reasonable amount of playtime, so you might categorize the kids that are more likely to reach their potential.
While Determination is not a hidden feat, Professionalism and Sportsmanship are so I'm not sure if this is a breach of SI's policy, I wasn't even aware that tapping into CA and PA is either.
In any case, if at all possible categorizing the wonderkids for the convenience of those using this remarkable list would be of benefit I suppose as it could shed light on so many promising kids in football: those who 'show character to become superstars' and those that 'have to walk a rockier road to stardom' (Balotelli comes to mind, kids character was brewed by Satan himself :D)

@prophet_omar:
Good point, I'll keep this list available on a different address even though it's not updated for 11.2 but merely for 11.1.

prophet_omar2011-03-15 22:42
I recently started a new save game in 11.2 because i didn't want to wait any longer for the new patch.
So my question is: Will there be a way to find this list after the update?

Group Stam2011-03-15 16:22
I can now confirm I will be updating this list to be 11.3 compatible by the end of this week, introducing recommendations stars for the players.

Group Stam2011-03-11 21:56
@Ryan:
Not here, no. Honestly, this page wouldn't have reached almost 1M views if I had made that possible.

@prophet_omar:
You're right, my bad; I was in a hurry to reply and didn't check the name against the list. The truth is this list is based on initial potential and ability of a player, and many players fail to progress enough by the time they are 21 years old, due to not getting first team play with their teams. And when they get older, their progress stops being so fast, and as a result they never reach their initial potential.

I really want to update this list, been meaning to do that for weeks but couldn't find any motivation. Now that the last patch has been released I guess it's the right time to do it, add those recommendation stars next to the players as well; it should be very interesting.

@asdfqwer: Saivet is not as good as in previous FM, definitely not good enough to be here."

well stam i've noticed Saivet indeed does exist in this list among the rest AMRs.
i don't criticise you, just mention it so that he may be removed...
Ps: is there going to be an update for this list soon?

RyanBuk2011-03-10 14:44
Is there any way i can download this list into the game?

Group Stam2011-03-08 18:40
@fhirdaus: That's the point really, otherwise you wouldn't come back to take another look at it :)
@hterag2: I don't agree on this one mate, so he's not getting on this list.
@barnsey95: Alex Billington will turn out to be good for L1 perhaps, but that's it. Alan Patrick on the other hand could be added I guess. Thanks for your contribution!
@liam: Yes Cardenas exists, you probably just have to load players from Colombia when starting your game (through custom database settings).
@asdfqwer: Saivet is not as good as in previous FM, definitely not good enough to be here.
@tompa: I think Pulido could be added indeed, Sarabia not so much in my opinion. Thanks for your suggestions!

Avatar
tompa2011-03-07 12:15
2 players I miss on the list are:
Jorge Pulido DC, Current Age 20
Pablo Sarabia AML/WL, Current Age 19
Both from Madrid, Jorge from Atletico och Pablo from Real
Get them for 800k euro each for my 2nd season in IFK Göteborg, Sweden
So far both gone straight into my squad and become keyplayers.
I dont know how good they really are going to be but in my opinion they could take place on the list

Try henri saivet from bordeaux. I have not played 2011 version but in 2008 game he was fabulous. better than thierry henry at 21

Players that are also "wonderkids" are Blackburn's left back Alex Billington becomes fantastic player, can buy dirt cheap from blackburn when under 18 and, and santos attacking midfielder alan patrick, next kaka but expensive for fairly expensive for a prospect player, looking at around 6-7 million. :)

hterag22011-02-06 15:46
great wonderkid with liverpool, peter gulácsi (i think 20 yr old)- 180k and worth every penny

I can't copy this list!

Group Stam2011-01-30 22:11
@Apo: No, I don't think I will. I'll wait for the last patch to revise my list. There's also a pending update I wanted to work on in order to make it easier finding the best players on this list by using a star next to the names.

Avatar
Apo2011-01-29 13:06
do you make a list for 11.2.1 update because at this update players arent same

Group Stam2011-01-26 20:24
@Apo: Indeed I didn't know him. Even though his PA is not high enough to make him eligible for this list, his CA is quite high and I believe he can have instant impact for a team of English Championship for example. So I have added him on this list. Thanks for your help!

Apo2011-01-26 19:11
My friend you forgott the best talent in football manager maybe you dont know discover him yet.Jan Chramosta(Mlada Boleslav) at serbian league.

Group Stam2011-01-18 12:59
@Ezteban:
It means he is a newgen (some call it regen), a randomly generated player from FM who is not real.

Ezteban2011-01-18 07:14
Luis Moreno (Striker) from River Plate Argentina , i dont think that you gonna see him the first season of the game, i found him in season 2012.
he's 16 and cost $3,700,000 (dollars) i saw 5 stars in his report , he's good on head

Sekyere, Mark, Emmanuel, Sani

i think this 2 player should not be in this list :)

nikusha_marx2011-01-07 12:42
what about marko livaja??? i bought him 3 times, none of times he make anything worth.

Group Stam2011-01-04 16:46
Large database doesn't guarantee you'll find all those players in your game. You have to set custom database and load more players. Try to load all international players for example, it would help find most of them listed here. To find the ones listed above I loaded literally all players in the database (a total of 300K).
