    So, having not really played anything in the CM/FM series since 01/02, thought it was about time to get back into it. Just wondering what good, cheap, young players people would reccomend. Players like nikkiforenko etc in 01/02. Are there any players like this that can be picked up for peanuts and become world class?? also any magical tactics out there, like www2. Or is it a bit more difficult these days? Decided to go as newcastle btw, so i have £160K to spend:| bit crap but meh. Should be fun. Thinking about getting a couple of defenders maybe?

    cheers

    defenders;
    van de borre
    micah richards

    midfielders:
    arouca
    lucas (19 yr old dm)

    use the installment methods to sign the players.

    Right, first thing i did with Newcastle was slap Bramble, Dyer, Butt, Babayaro and Luque on the transfer list. Bramble will almost certainly go to Rangers and Boro always come in for Dyer. You easily get yourselves over £4 million for the both of them and a huge chunk taken from the wage budget, Dyer is on 60k a week!!!! Butt and Luque are much harder to sell. They are on large wages so i eventually let them go on free's.

    First player you should go for is Josep Guardioloa on a free - Spanish DM - 35 but still has a good year or two in him and his wage demands are tiny. Immediately enter negotiations with Man Utd and extend Rossi's loan to a full season. He is great cover for Martins who will score most of your goals.

    If you need a cheap target man you can get Brian McBride for 100k. He can hold the ball up well and supply Martins with the flick-ons. Dagoberto is a good AM to cover Emre.

    In defense i got Micheal Ball for next to nothing to replace Babayaro and brought in Stehpen Warnock on loan. Van Shifty Borre is a must. I was close to getting Igor Tudor but negotiations broke down at the last minute.

    Bit long winded but i hope it helps :)

    lol I always get Guardiola too, he's a great sub playmaker and comes free at the beginning of the game.

    Id Sign Sherman Cardenas, you can get him for 750k,

    Make sure you change the type of contract to full time and that he is in the first team squad and he should come, i got him to come at Manchester City

    Cardenas is a real gem (Y)

    Kris Haestad is a solid signing that you can get on a free in December 06

    Others (though slightly higher priced) that become real stars are Curtis Davies and Andres Guardado. Both well worth the money you pay for them.

    oh and DEFINATELY keep hold of Milner and N'Zogbia (Y)

    If you have some money, I recommend Higuain. Fantastic player, costed me 9,5M but I will surely sell him for more. Last season was something near the 1 goal per game.

    Buy the 18 year-old brazilian left-back marcelo - plays for fluminense, who have reportedly agreed a £6.5 miilion deal with real madrid in reality. He's outstanding - one of THE best full-backs on the game!

    retrain him as an LM and he's far better suited imo.

    Depends on the tactic, if you use attacking fullbacks he can be very deadly.

    As for young talents, Nani of Sporting and Anderson of Porto are very good.

    Yeah, Dazmania said it. Retraining Marcelo to AML will give you awesome results.

    i've never bothered with doing my own training routines/targets before on any FM game, i've now discovered it works a treat! 2 Other talented youths (especially in the long run) are junior khanye and lebohang mokoena

    Aguero is a bit of a special talent on FM. His attacking stats are everything you want in a striker, bit overrated in proportion to his real-life skill though.
