What about Curtis Jones from Celtics? Only 18, and is currently having 15 for both marking and tackling (he is a central defender). Bought him for just 20k.

Ans also Nigel Hasselbaink? 21, a striker and is my bomber right now. And also Tom Hateley from Motherwell? Only 22, and is my defensive wall right now. Bought him for 100k.

All of the players above can be bought with less than 1 million, and should be available for npower league 1 & 2 teams.

Take a look at Lacina Traore. In my first season with Man U (never seem him in my previous saves), bought him in the summer from Cuban for £6mil,he is quality in the air and teamed up with Sigurosson you will get plenty of goals from set pieces.

An amazing list you have here Darren, thx for your effort. I can say it helped me with some players. I would also recommend: NELSON OLIVEIRA from Benfica, he is a wonder kid Julian Draxler from Shalke Alberto Paloschi-Genoa Guillermo Burdisso-Rosario Central Jonas Svensson-Rosenborg Alexandru Chpciu-Brasov he is a very good Romanian player in my opinion with abilities just like Gabriel Torje, but he is a lot cheaper :) I want your opinion about Griffiths, some guys on the forums are saying he is a future star but my scouters are giving him max 4 stars (in a good case)… Read more »

Traore is pretty dencent in open play, he has good pace, really good first touch, his strength is awesome, good technique and has scored a few goals one on one with the keeper. He needs to improve on his passing and composure, but has just turned 21 so will improve. Half way through the season and he has scored 13 in 13.

A few players which I’ve tested for 3 seasons and i recommend them:
AMR Giacomo Bonaventura
AMRC Georiginio Wijnaldum
MC Oliver Buff
DC Dede – Vasco
DC Craig Dawson
DC Craig Cathcart
DR Neal Eardley
DR/MC Vegar Eggen Hedenstad (better used as DR)
DR/WBR/MR Seamus Coleman
MC Jonas Svensson – Rosenborg (in my game at the age 19-20 he was good as Zdravko Kuzmanovic)
Guilherme Luis is a very good GK, Darren. I didn’t tryed the others but I would recommend Andrea Consigli and Asmir Begovic. Even if they are 24 years they are very good

December 28, 2011 10:49 pm

Kinda odd that you don’t have Lucas Andersen on your save(probably the medium database you say you use), I’ve tried to pick him up in all my games and he’s always 4-5 stars in potential with good stats. But anyway, thanks for the lists, they’ve been really helpful. Especially on my latest season(West Ham). Won the Championship title,with Sanogo being the best young player and Mark Noble the best player. Also picked up Giuseppe Prestia & Felipe Anderson. Now in the start of the 2nd season, I’ve gone on pickup overload. Fierro, Niang, Lucas Andersen, Nangis and Guilherme along with… Read more »

what about christian Eriksen?

Guest
Tom
December 30, 2011 8:32 pm

I seen someone mention Griezmann in the comments and let me tell you he’s a revelation! Also, Wilfried from Vitesse is a goal machine. His finishing in one and one situations could do with a little improvement, but at 22 I guess that’s going to improve anyway. I signed for Real Sociedad and he’s scored 15 in his first 12 with an average rating of 7.89. Class!

Guest

December 31, 2011 11:34 am

Eriksen should be there perhaps?

I’m not sure how much love he gets in game though, but being in the top 5 youth talents of europe, considering he plays in Holland, that’s pretty impressive.

In my 2015 save Erik Lamela develops quite nicely even though he has only played less than 10 games each season. With more gametime I’d say he would be a top wonderkid.
