great idea this darren…lots of players ive never even found…what about bressan?…i managed to get him at west ham and he became a star!…

however im not sure on wages n price tage…i think i got him for 1.2mill but wages were 20k…so mayb not

Le Dzung

A great list you made there! I believe even one who manage a top club with small initial budget can find this list really helpful.

Le Dzung

Oh, I suggest some more players who can be good candidates to join this list. Many of them are well-known for many gamers, but, it’s always wonderful to take a look at the profile of the player from this site as a reference. So, they are: Gabriel Silva (DL), Cornel Rapa, Houslek (AML), Alex Smithies (GK), Sommer (GK), Bressan (AMC), Mushaga Bakenga (ST). I’m not sure they are cheap from all starting game but in my save game they are good bargaining deals.


Great idea Darren! I’ve been trying to get a Championship save started for the longest time, perhaps this list will help me get it underway!


Got names of a few youngsters that may be interested in joining a Championship side but are more prospects than instant impacts..

Samed Yesil (irl performed well in U17 champs for Germany)
Christian Montano (WHU plaeyr, low value at the start of the game, bags of potential)
Hordur Magnusson (Juventus reserves player, not sure if he’d want out but.. his physical stats improve seadily from what i’ve seen)
Vitinho (Botofago youngster, looks to be a very promising rounded striker)


Hi Darren, in my current save, a player called Tadanari Lee signed for Southampton for free on wages of 15k and has 17 goals in 29 for them. I have never managed him so I can’t swear by him but I thought he was worth a mention because of the stats.


Lucas Severo- Internacional U20’s
Luis Guilherme- Botafogo
Romario- Vitoria
fantastic players
also noticed you got some loan players on the list so here is a suggested loan player
Soulameine Coulibaly- Tottenham he has amazing attributes


I am not sure what sort of interest he would have in moving to the Championship but Rivaldo signed for Wolves in January in one of my saves. I tried signing him from the off with a 3rd Division German side, the club accepting the bid but he wasn’t interested. He is very old but has some great looking technical skills


Found a few cheap players you may (or may not) be interested in adding to your list :)

Douglas from Goias
Matias Caruzzo from Boca
Tlou Segolela from Orlando Pirates
Jorge Broun from Athletico Rosario
Jean-Alain Fanchone (a left back!) from FC Strasbourg
Malkaz Asatiani (free agent)

all should be available for less than 1M each

Also, if you can, I recommend scouting Egypt and Qatar, there are some good players there, some still in their 20s ;)


Nathan Ake


OK, my final attempt to recommend anything for this tier xD One player only this time: Lee Addy.

Good jumping and heading means he’ll be a threat from set pieces. 1,5M Euro might be required to get him but I’m confident he’ll eb worth it and will be a magnificent capture for any Championship team. Hope he gets a work permit :P


should maybe put jody craddok on?, fairenough hes old but for a lower side in the championship hes a decent signing, helped me a number of times avoid relegation for a couple of seasons until i got my foot in the league

Liam Dean

any cheap goal machines?
im bristol city need someone to bang em in :)

Chris Henwood
I brought in Joel Valencia from Zaragoza on loan for the season and Rivaldo on a transfer. Play them as AM in a 4-1-2-1-2, got about 20 goals between them in my first season. Kadlec is a very good choice as a ST so I recommend bringing him in to play alongside Either Pitman or Stead. DO NOT play Chris Wood, he very rarely scores and will miss many easy chances. Also worth a look is Daniel Sturridge, managed to get him on loan for the season, Finished third in championship with Sturridge, Pitman, Stead and Kadlec each getting more… Read more »

* only got 1 million*****


Niang is one of the best players i have managed but i just want to know would bressan join a championship team?


i cannot find most of these players i am ploaying the game on my iphone, do you know how i can sort it?


oh man, you not know any players for handheld?


darren what do you think of bruma from sporting lisbon and also kurt zouma

Jorge Amim

IVAN BANDALOVSKI. Great Right FullBack. Bough him playing for Leeds.

And the price… 50K!!! His value is higher, but CSKA Sofia will let the player go for very little money. One of the great bargains of the game.

Now im in the Premier and he stills put an average above 7 in the league.

Martin parker

Good shout with Bressan. he is pure quality! rarely puts in a bad game.. 975k minimum – wage around 4k will get him! I’ve done that for Blackpool numerous times, he will want around 2.2k – offer 4k 100% will get him..


Hey mate, you should look at Victor Anichebe. I got him for an initial 200k and 2m over 42 months and he’s scored 23 goals over the season and 16 assists. I also recommend Yaya Sanogo. He starts of with an undisclosed injury until the 10/11 but when he comes back and regains match fitness he is a beast. He has scored 18 goals in 14 games with 6 assists. Get Anichebe first if anyone wants to buy the two together (which I recommend!!) As Sanogo idolises Ani’.
Great list though. Let’s see some more players on it though :p

sam ryan

I have 4 players please could you tell me how they have progressed please. They are:

Jack Butland (GK) 17yrs old
Alex Smithies (GK)21yrs old
Tarik Elyounoussi (ST)23yrs old
Aidan White (LB/LM) 19yrs old


would yannis salibur be a good championship player? im not managing in the championship but im haalfway through my first season and he is only worth 40k and his stats arent too bad for a 21 year old

Dale Gibson

A few very good players for Championship clubs with a little more cash.

Roger MC Cruzeiro (Free kick specialist and plenty of assists!)

Mario Sergio RB Metalurg (Averages well over 7 and does it in the Prem aswell)

Sol Bamba DC Leicester (Got 12 goals in my 1st season)

Mariano Pernia DL FREE (Not available on update as he is retired but on original he is quality)


What do you think of Miguel Sabah?


Yeah he is pretty expensive managed to get him for 1.8m with southampton.


i recommend camilo zuniga from napoli, they always transfer list him and he is available for under 1 mil shockingly he even joins some top championship teams, i brought him to leicester city and southampton in 2 different saves, guy is amazing and can still play for u when u get promoted, dw work permit is not an issue because he plays for his nationality team all the time so he always passes his work permit

olly benson

A great youth player is Vadillo from Betis. n my manu one he is 4 1/2 star potential. But he cost me 20million and e demands first team even though he is only 1 star at first so he will go down. But he is great

Dylan Reeves

Max clayton got me 1/5 goals for Peteborough at the age of 19 brought him at 18 for 500k.Should be able to make good profit.


Egebert – Irish central defender, can get him on a free transfer at the start for a bout 2k a week wages… 24 – heading 16.. tackling 16.. Had him for my Colchester save, he’s a beast. So will also go to lower league clubs.
