If You Just Have The English League These Players Become Amazing After About 3 Years, As Long As You Get In Some Great Coaches (Get Tony Godden And You're On To A Winner):
Kasper Schmeichel (Man City)- as everyone has already said, he is brilliant after about 4 years.
Gary Roberts (Crewe) - train Roberts to be a Defender Right and he got an average of 8.72 for 51 games last season for me, he is amazing.
Billy Jones (Crewe) - another very good young defender.
Magnus Troest (Aston Villa) - becomes a good substitue defender.
Andres Iniesta (Barcelona) - can get him for mega cheap at the start, he becomes a great Defensive Midfielder.
Aaron Lennon (Leeds)- with a bit of luck he becomes a very good player.
Courtney Pitt (Portsmouth) - the best Left Midfielder I have ever bought, he costs about Â£2million but he gets around 20 assists a season at Left Midfield.
Andres D'Alessandro (Wolfsburg) - pretty good AMC for the price, gets average of 8.0 most seasons with about 10 assists and 8 goals on average.
Carlos Tevez (Boca Juniors) - around Â£10million should get him.
Tom Jebb (Liverpool) - provides a good backup for Pitt at Left Midfield.
John Thorrington (Huddersfield) - super cheap and a pretty good player.
Supat Rungratsamee (Portsmouth) - becomes as good as Owen in a couple of seasons scoring loads.
Nicolas Anelka (Man City) - not a young player but worth signing if you can because he is brilliant.
Steven Gillespie, You'll find him at Liverpool, get him cheap and play in in att mid he will score like theres no tommorrow and his value rockets trust me!
I saw here that in everyone's 'super teams' all the players appear to be about 30 at the start of the game, which is no good if you want to play for more than 2 or 3 seasons.
Here is a list of players that develop to be some of the best on the game, and are all relatively cheap at the beggining of the first season. It does vary from game to game how well a player develops, but these ones usually become very good, provided you give them plenty of games.
1. AM/FC, Ederson, 17 y/o, Â£20,000, (RS Futebol)
2. AM/FRC, Toledo, 21 y/o, Â£200,000, (Catanzaro)
3. DLC, De la Cuesta, 20 y/o, Â£350,000, (Atletico Nacional)
4. AMR, Mariano Gonzalez, 22 y/o, Â£4,000,000, (Racing)
5. AMC, Diego, 18 y/o, Â£8,000,000, (Santos)
6. DC, Gabriel Milito, 22 y/o, Â£8,000,000, (Zaragoza)
7. FLC, Evandro Roncatto, 17 y/o, Â£250,000, (Guarani)
8. AM/FRL, Absalonsen, 17 y/o, Â£2,000,000, (Brondby)
9. SC, Kakalov, 18 y/o, Â£1,000,000, (Litex)
10. SC, Anatoli Todorov, 18 y/o, Â£1,000,000, (Litex)
11. GK, Kasper Schmeichel, 16 y/o, Â£230,000, (Man City)
12. SC, Pazzini, 18 y/o, Â£5,000,000, (Atalanta)
13. SC, Advaldo, 17 y/o, Â£300,000, (Vitoria)
14. AMC, Oskitz Estefania, 16 y/o, Â£3,600,000, (Real Sociedad)
15. GK, Sebastian Saja, 24 y/o, Â£9,000,000, (San Lorenzo)
For Saja and Pazzini you need to add the Italian league. Also another good one if you have the Italian league is Issah Eliakwu (FRLC), but I can't remeber how much he costs.
My team is a dream team, I'm chelsea and play 4-3-3 and win almost everything with great scores, Here is my squat:
DM Kasper Smeichel (man city)
DR Mancini (as Roma) (great back and verry good in attack also)
DL Wayne Bridge (chelsea) (same as mancini, but not so good in attack)
DC Carles Puyol (Barca) (Love him he is the greatest)
DC Robert Huth/John terry (Take Huth for Free kicks, Terry for good defending)
Mr Aaron Lennon (Leeds) (20 year old worldclass winger)
MC Diego(Santos) Just awesome great in everything!!
ML Joe Cole (Chelsea) Worldclass midfielder after 2 or 3 seasons
Fc/r Evandro roncatto (Worldclass forword at the age of 20)
SC Anatoli Todorov (GREAT!!! 20 finishing dribbeling and good pacek, worldclass and worth 71 milion euro !!)
Fc/l Daniel Braathen (20 pace, acceleration, dribbling technique and 19 finishing and heading, what do I need to say more about him VERRY CHEAP ASWELL!)
Here are a lot of player that you can get in low price.
Some of the players are having a minimum fee release clause
Maybe not all of this player u can get, but u can get some of the in low budget
Edwin Van Der Sar (He has a fee release clause at 6,75M)
Andrea Consigli (His skill will be look like Canizares)
Jose Julian De La Cuesta
Sorry, it`s all I remember. Soon I'll be add the list for more players. See ya !!!
Using Man utd
I am using a 4-4-2 attacking modified into a 4-3-3
Defenders Gary Neville ,
Rio Ferdinand ,
Rafael Marquez ,
Midfielders Cristiano Ronaldo ,
Paul Scholes ,
Strikers Fernando Torres ,
Thierry Henry ,
Great Youngsters Helder Barbosa ,
Always check out for expiring contracts or unprotected contracts.
Unprotected contract must be paid with a compensation.
The great players you can get here are:
Always make offer half a year before the contract expires!!!
Robinho, for free halfway through the second season
Thierry Henry, for free after first season.
Diego, end of secon season.
Joe Cole, got him cheap on unprotected contract.
Wayne Bridge, same as Cole.
José Antonio Reyes, same as Cole and Bridge.
Kasper Schmeichel, VERY YOUNG!!! Buy him early when he's under 17.
Nilmar, great young striker.
Dagoberto, March first season.
My team which wins everything! It's Man Utd by the way...
DC: Ferdinand/M. Stewart
MC: Reyes/Le Tallec/D'Agostino
MR: C. Ronaldo/Wright Phillips/Fredheim Holm
-Daniel Braathen and Daniel Fredheim Holm are only available if you activate the Norwegian League, Braathen has 20 pace, 19 acceleration, 20 technique, 20 dribbling and will get good finishing when you play him, for me he has 18.
That looks like a really great forward to me there, and he scores more than a goal a match while playing alongside Robinho.
-D'Agostino is a great free-kick taker and penalty taker and scores a lot too.
-Diego scores long shots and assists loads.
-Reyes is more attacking than Diego, with less assists.
-Dagoberto and Nilmar both have a habit of getting hat-tricks.
-Le Tallec can score nearly as many from center midfield as from forward.
-Ferdinand has 20 heading which is a must for a good defender, look for heading skills in every defender you buy!!!
-Joe Cole is a naggy fella' but is almost as good as Diego.
-Bellion has 20 pace, and all strikers with 20 pace are wicked goal-scorers!
-Kleberson is underrated, this guy has a great passing ability (and is worth loads too ).
-Coloccini is 20 heading and quite young.
-Kasper Schmeichel is the best keeper in the game compared to the money you pay, hands down! Might even be the best of all! And he's young.
-My defenders are mint, didn't buy Lucio, even though he is great, he's too old.
-Bolaños is from LDU Quito, Juventus bought him and snatched him at end of contract.
-C. Ronaldo has quick feet, scores and assists.
-Wright Philips is the same as C. Ronaldo.
Those are my key players, here's a few good hints for you rookies.
- Activate Argentinian and Brazilian Premier Leagues, loads of talent.
- Send Scouts to South-America as well as doing research yourself.
- Look for young talent everywhere!
- As said above, use the contract filter in Player/Staff Search to your advantage.
- Get the free players that you NEED ONLY!!!! If you get too many, you will get many unhappy players that want to play.
- If you can make a training program that focuses on certain points, use it on the ones that need it. Do this for goalkeepers, defenders, midfielders and attackers.
If you have spare time you can designate schedules to important players.
- Try to be professional in your decisions, because screwing around affects your shot at becoming manager for national teams and better teams than yourself.
- Rest players that need rest if you have depth in your squad to fill the hole the player(s) leave. Tired players perform less.
- Play unhappy players until they are comfortable with their position in the team.
- Try to sell the old and un-needed, money means better team. Gain money rather than using money.
- If your unknown with the game, pick a good team rather than your local team. This is for the people don't live in citys with the worlds finest.
- A large wage budget allows you better free players, as the contract offer is what the players look for.
- Winning cups increases your reputation, reputation is good.
Here are players that can help your team. Expensive isn't always good.
The players in the team aren't mentioned here.
Gamst Pedersen, Tromsø, don't know if you need to activat Norwegian League.
Fredy W. Thompson, Comunicaciones (?), must have large database, go to preferences at main menu.
Giampaolo Pazzini, Atalanta, Atalanta are full of young goodies.
Rooney, expensive but nice.
Lucio, Leverkusen, a little old...
Diego Lima, Internacional, not Inter, Lima is because of the other Diego, look a full name.
Martins, Inter, young and dangerous.
Blondel, Tottenham, sets up lots of goals.
Alessio Cerci, Roma, scores!
Basaran Irfan, Galatasaray, 13 at the start,
Fabien Brandy, Man Utd, scores lots, haven't gotten to use him...
Use this well and good luck.
I am Currently managing Juventus and I am in 2007, my fourth season, I have own the serie A every season and I am sitting 8 points clear in this season. I have won the champions league for two seasons on the trot. In the serie A I had gone 85 games unbeaton.i have won 3 leagus and ten cups all together. I have only lost 8 games in my whole carear on this game and have lead england to a world cup.
Here is my team :
DL- Fernando navarro
Dc- titus bramble
Dc- thuram ( bit old now)
Dmc- Zambrotta / solari
Mc - beckham/ deco
Mc - camoranesi
Fc - adriano
Fc- henry/ miccoli
Mc/fc- le tallec
This team is amazing try it yourself, it only cost around 30 million to build thanks to free transfers at the end of the season.
This is cool,
It lets you change player names, stats, stadiums and capacity, team names and create new players!
When you go on to the screen were the champ manager and readme underneath is editor. Go on that and follow instructions.
1)your formation should be a flat 4-4-2, with the wingers making forward runs (to AM R/L) and the central midfielders making backward runs (to DMC).
In central midfield you should play defensive midfielders only. Sell paul scholes, ole solskjaer, diego forlan, nicky butt, roy keane and ryan giggs.
You will now be filthy rich!! (this will take some time though, it toook me three seasons to get the invincible squad I have now - be patient!!)
2)PLAY KLEBERSON. He is surprisingly brilliant and reasonably young. 3)righty-ho, this is how my team lines up:
MR- C. Ronaldo
FC-R. Van Nistelrooy
Subs from: Carlos Tevez, David Bellion (scores LOADS by the way), Jamie Hand, Andres Iniesta, Tim Howard, James Jowsey, Jamie Mullen, Shaun Wright-Phillips, Catalina Aubemeyang, James McEveley, Danny Livesey, Ryan Garry, Danilo Pistillo
This collection of players has won me four consecutive leagues and champions leagues (i'm still playing the game btw).
Giampoulo Pazzini plays for Atalanta. Look at his stats I know they're amazing for a youngster. He is worth about £2million but will cost you up to £20million and is worth every penny. In one year playing 29 games scored 47 GOALS that includes 4 hatricks.
B U Y N O W ! ! !
Two good players to buy:
Pavel Beganskiy of BATE. Enter his name in the quick search. You should be able to get him for about 500k, but his value rockets to £7.5million as soon as you get him. Play him up front; in the Premiership I think he's about a 15-25 goals a season striker.
Daniel Braathen of Skeid. You have to activate the Norwegian league at the start to get him. He'll come for about 250k, but his value rises to about £2.8million and carries on if you play him regularly. I like to play him on the wings and then play him up front after two seasons.
Try to build a squad for the futer, it is good to start young and then people last longer but keep at least 2older players, a goalie and someone else.
GK:Víctor Valdés (Barcelona) 10m
DC:J.Terry (Chelsea) 4.4m When chelsea went in to debt somehow
DC:C.Worns (Dortmund) 5m Get him before anyone else does
DL:W.Bridge (Chelsea) 3.5m When chelsea went in to debt somehow
DR:T.Klompe (Heerenveen) 5m Normally plays central but it doesnt matter
MC:Deco (Porto) 20m Works well with Alex, amazing freekick taker
MC:Alex (Cruziero) 18.25m amazin all round player links up well with todorov
MC:Gamst Pedersen (Tromsø) 2.4m Not so good at the start but works well half way through the first season
DMC:G.Barry (Aston Villa) 10m Slots in well behind the other 3 midfielders
FC:A.Todorov (Litex) 5m work permit needed- best stiker i have ever had i was in the relegation zone, then i signed him and i was third, he scored 8 goals in 4 games
FC:Mido (Marseille) 13m works well with Todorov
GK:Rubinho (Corinthians) 2m
DC:De La Cuesta (Atlético Nacional) 2m
DC:A.Yakubu (Ajax) 5m
MC:R.Skacel (Marseille) 5.5m
FC:Nihat (Real Sociedad) 35m replace with Mido if the parternship isn't workin, keep Todorov on as long as possible, he may not look as good as the others but he is.
Kameni (Good Young Goalkeeper)
Augusto Recife (Cruziero)
Sol Campbell (Arsenal)
Ashley Cole (Arsenal)
Phillipe Mexes (Auxerre)
Matteo Ferrari (Parma)
