A quick filter that get us to all the free players in FM 2011. I mean players who don't belong to any team and be signed for free. The filter resulted in 2711 players, and here you can download the shortlist including them all.

However, I have manually picked the best of them and wrote them down on the list below.

    Yoann Arquin is a great player for any championship side as he is my top goalscorer at coventry with 22 goals and 15 assists, another good buy is kim won-sik, a south korean 18 year old but has scored 10 goals and he is a defender. Can't remember if he is free or not though

    I will give a mention to Chris James, a 23 year old New Zealand central midfielder. Signed him for nothing and he has been superb.
