#49563 minismithpur : #45706 Araujo - Plays at Boca Juniors. Is loanable first season. Is great both as a poacher and as a target man. Is young. Develops into a great player.

not what he was in FM2011, wasn't too bad then, but his stats/play havnt been up to scratch for his 4M asking price

True about stats. However he can definitely do a job for mid table top tier teams on loan ... and sometimes he s available for free second season.

Some decent and reasonably priced youngsters who ply their trade at Monaco (all wingers btw and all with at least *** potential):


They are all wingers btw

Also have a look at:

Chris Malonga more than decent winger *** potential
Kagelmascher (cb) very good tackling stats and **** potential but v low (9 I think)pace
Two young attackers with great stats:

A. Mehmedi

both can do a job even for top tier teams.

A good utility forward with good stats who is not young but can give immmediate results is:

Y. Al Qahtani
Gary Bocaly - RB/CB. This guy is not cheap but has great stats and routinely gets above 7.00 match averages.
A. Ramao - dm. Not very expensive and only ** ability. But has decent stats and is always more than the sum of his parts.
Ruffier - GK. Quite expensive (around 10 mil) but extremely solide.
Placide -GK. Cheaper alternative to Ruffier.
Players Im using for my R. Sociedad save:

Xabi Prieto - Not cheap and has stamina issues but he's great and the equal of wingers costing much more. Would fit in any top tier team. Is Basque so would be ideal for Athletic of Bilbao
Nacer Chadli and Rui Fonte - Young good potential wingers. Reasonably priced.

Vadim Demidov - Cheap utility player (dm/cm/cb). Very effective.

Claudio Bravo - Very very very good GK who will not break your bank

Great Basques:

I. Agirretxe - Cf who scores consistently. Very good back up even for top teams
Illaramendi - dm/cm who is great at bbm. Scores goals
A. De La Bella lb
Inigo Martinez cb
I recently started a save with Bielefeld in the German Third Division (and managed to win the cup in my first season so spent my second playing in the europa league while being in the Second Division ... which I won!!!!! - but that is another story) so I had the opportunity to use the following players (most demand little or no wages):

Michael Contreras - lb 19yo peruvian who is dirt cheap and I scouted him every game with top teams and he came back **** potential. The guy is amazing. Never puts a foot wrong.

Danny Da Costa - 18 yo rb/cb German. He was in the reserves of Werder (I think) and loaned him (free of wages and of money) from the first season, again for the second and bought him for the third. His stats are amazing and has been a rock for me at every level.

Mario Gavranovic - cf Swiss - In the schalke reserves. Costs 1,9m second season but comes for free loan. Has great stats and absolutely murdered the second division with 32 goals. Tried to buy him third season when Im in the first division but he wouldnt come so I loaned him again and he has already started scoring freely. Third season worth 2.6m

Muralha dm Brazilian - 18 yo plays at flamengo. Loaned him when in the second decision now bought him. Full of energy. Very recommended.

Michal Svec - dm/cb Utility man with reasonable stats. Got him on a free last season. Now in the third is valued at 3.3 mil!

Bence Zsenes - Hungarian cf. 18 yo. Has potential for League 1/ Championship Level at least.

Geovanny Caicedo cb - This guy is 31 in the first season but that should not put you off going for him. He is the most recommended player on this list. He costs around 500k with instalments and has the stats and the performances of players costing at least 5 times that!

More to come when I m back home and playing but generally speaking Id wholeheartedly recommend Bielefeld - its a challenge, you can build a team over 3 seasons, the German leagues are nice (not too many teams and matches) ...Lovely

Daniel Chima CF Nigerian - Bought him in my third season (first in top tier) and so far he's started once and scored a hat trick against Kaizerslautern. For 200k that i paid it deffo looks like a bargain.

Igor Stefanovic - GK bought him second season for very little now in third season he costs 2.1 mil. He's been instrumental to my amazing success.

Stanislas Oliveira DM - Came in for 300k and has been extremely useful - when you are forced to operate with a small squad utility players such as him are crucial

Roman Burki GK - Was valued 60k in second season but got him on a free for the third. Is 22 yo and now worth 1.9. Has great stats.
I know I recommended him in my immediately previous post but after using him for more than two seasons for Bielefeld I think, all things considered he's my best find!

Im talking about GEOVANNY CAICEDO. He's a cb who costs around 500k (with instalments - I always buy players with instalments)with pretty decent stats. But he plays as well as people like Rafael Toloi who i use often myself and can compare and others costing 10 times as much as he does. He's 31 at the start, but dont let that put you off. I still have him at Bielefeld now that he's 33 and his stats have not dropped. He's in my starting back four there btw which looks like this:

GK: Renan/Burki (not a regen - also greatly recommended)

LB: Michael Contreras
CB: Caicedo
CB: Toro
RB: Danny Da Costa
3) Emad Meteb (Zamalek - i think) cf. Check out this guy's stats! Will score a few. Only problem is that he is expensive (cost me 14mil with instalments for Anzhi)and very temperamental.

I am in Egypt, where there is Zamalek, but Emad Meteb doesn't play for zamalek, he plays for Al-Ahly, but there is also Amr Zaki who is a cf and is a good player at Zamalek, if more help is needed just ask me :)
How did you find all these players? What's your strategy? And have you used them all?
Vaclav Kadlec- makes a good amount of assists, and scores important goals for my napoli save!!

1. I found them by scouting.
2. I havent used all of them. Used most.
3. My strategy? Start a save, play 2/3 seasons, win everything. Start another.

Vad1802 - Vaclav Kadlec is a well known wonderkid. This thread is not for wonderkids. But for unknown players who can win stuff for you much earlier than wonderkids.
