It's a bit White Dog Poo, but it brought back so many memories:
Predictably, the comments go on for miles and miles.
I was searching for this earlier. Goodbye for now!
always brilliant if leeds or man u bought him, rubbish if you ever did.
i liked the made up players you only got in 1 game. Dieter Frey was the best left wing back in the world ever.
i hadnt even read it when i typed that ^.
he's on there!
he was always unstoppable whenever I bought him. I can't describe how disappointed I was when he signed for Everton in real life and I saw what he was really like.
at the end of the first season was always a good shout at left as well
are probably the best players I've ever bought on that game. amazing
made him a seasoned England striker on a number of occasions
"YES! LOWNDES HAS SCORED AGAIN"
always looked like he had some potential but was really a bit shit. and lazy.
Talking about other Football Manager legends who played for Argyle in real life, CHERNO SAMBA!!!
should have been number one, he scored over 70 goals in a season for me once. You could sign him for £5k, and he would sign for anyone.
and more recent editions Rene Mihelic.
CM 01/02. UNBELIEVEABLE.
There's only so many times you can win 16-0 before it becomes boring
Anyone? I'm looking at you colinzeal.
also had two other players who were stunning for their level, although getting on a bit in years. I think one of them was Paul Booth, but can't remember the other off the top of my head.
Cox was better than most, but not quite up to the standard of others.
Fabio Paim is the best I've ever had. Bought him at 14, and would give me 10's for pretty much every game. 8 if he was playing rubbish.
More Rob Smyth goodness
Lubos Kalouda in the last one was ace. Oh and Wesley Sonck was a goal machine when he was at Genk.
Simon Davies and Matthew Etherington were both class and cheap as well when they were at Peterborough. You could fill out your team with Crewe youth players as well, they always turned out good!
Kalouda, Piatti, Buonette, Stancu, Sharp on loan, Fowler, Turner on loan, Gioda, Nasuti and Mota
All for under £7m = instant promotion
is obviously supat rungratsamee
as well as
that left back, de la cuesta
Simon Davies, Matthew Etherington, Gareth Jellyman, Anders Koogie, Warren Kenna. Amazing team. Also as much as I hate them Rushden and Diamonds starting with £7 million in the Conference was always pretty jokes
TOTALLY this. Davies and Etherington, especially, were amazing.
Best Goalkeeper ever!
Other good Scottish players, Alan Archibal and Willie Howie both from Partick Thistle
I'm pretty sure this made it into mainstream everyday language
Apparently it's totally fucked, nobody can get it working. 12,000 strong online petition demanding SI Games heads. Hahaha
on CM3 (i think, it may have been later) was an awesome player
but Robbie Keane on 02/03 (i think) was a 35 goal a season man from the start whomever he played for.
Alexander Farnerud was also a beast on CM4. Always the first player I signed. Gianpaolo Pazzini is also a bit of a CM/FM legend, he bagged me 50 league goals in a season once.
theres 7 pages of comments!!
I searched shitloads for a mention of him, and I found one :)
What a legend.
Javier Saviola (fairly early to get for a lot of clubs)
where is Teemu Tainio? Stefan Selkavoic? To Madieira? Some other scandanavian I cannot rememember? RICHIE PARTRIDGE?!
