    Skyblue and crd123, the shortlist needs to be saved in the "shortlists" folder. If you are using windows 7 go to: Windows Start-Documents-Sports Interactive-Football Manager 2011-Shortlists

    once you have copied the file there, you can access it through the FM11 Shortlist dropdown menu by selecting IMPORT


    p.s. STAM, we all appreciate how much work you have put in, as the website is awesome

    febian brandy is also a good player to sign on a free can sign him on wages of about 1,500 depending on size of club, with a smaller league 1 club like bournemouth he can be signed on wages of around 1,500 and will score 20-30 goals a season

    Like the wonderkids list, it's a priority I revise this list within the week. I like the idea of adding a note as to what kind of league each player would likely be interested in joining, so I'll try to do that.
    Thanks for all your comments!! Keep them coming!

    If like me you start in the Blue Square league, take a look at the following as they will help you out big time

    Wesley Ngo Baheng(striker)French Age 21 - wages accepted £800 p.w.
    goal machine, and he's top of my list for the full game

    Ismael Fofana (AM L) Ivory Coast Age 21 - wages accepted £375 p.w.
    Versatile player equally adept as a striker

    (could you please add a "Loan Player" section - so we can add players that will go to the lower leagues!! :) Ashley Eastham DC from Blackpool rocks lol

    That is another discussion my friend. The stature of each player (and the type of his agent) will suggest if he would be keen to join your team or not. At any case, you can always send your scout to come up with a scout report on a player you want, and you will know if he would be interested in signing with you.
