I usually say ah I know this guy and watch him more carefully especially if I ever bought him to one of my teams..

I must admit I sometimes get disappointed on how they look like http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif Sometimes they are not as I imagined them to be.. hehe..

How you guys think?

My assistant manager spoke to the press after the West Brom 0-1 Portsmouth game about how dissapointed he was that the referees bottled out of noticing the handball in the buildup to Pompey's goal http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif.

There are many players who I see their names on FM and think them white, and they turn out to be black, or vice versa. Micah Richards, Leroy Lita to name a couple.

Breno looks the dogs bits. I must say I've never seen what half of my players look like. Might do a google image search http://community.sigames.com/customicons/icon14.gif

Also, Wikipedia says Omar Esparza is a right side player, but FM says he is a left sided player. Who is right?

Canvey - You made me remember years ago, can't remember the date exactly but Kevin Campbell was playing at Arsenal and I never imagined him as black!

Was really surprised to see him playing..

Oh, and Pablo Piatti looks suspiciously like Lionel Messi...

Mario Balotelli, I thought the guy was a white Italian then I see him on channel 5 banging one in and I see he was black.

I've spent years trying to find what Anatoli Todorov (the CM 03/04 legend) looks like. I gave up a couple of years back.

I was exceedingly suprised to see what sidney govou really looked like after signing him on FM07. On the other hand this could have been because for some reason on my game his player pic showed a long haired white guy.

Brett Studman is an Auzzie CB who is a 41 year old Madrid legend in cm00-01. he looks so normal irl. no where near as good atm either.

i thought giampaolo pazzini would be more of a Luca Toni look-alike too.

In the Champ Manager when Arjen Robben started at Gronegen I always imagined him to be a large black man. I got quite a shock when Chelsea signed him, I can tell you. http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_eek.gif

I've found myself going onto youtube quite frequently to search for any videos of players that I've signed. Especially ones that I've never seen play obviously. But I wouldn't say I've ever been disappointed with their looks. I've been surprised a few times though.

yup a few times, can't remember who it was but I imagined them to be a white guy and when I saw them play I said out loud "what the hell, he's black??" and I got a funny look off my dad http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_biggrin.gif

Ballotelli I knew in my mind was black cos I knew his history. Ghanian parents. Court ordered adoption to the Balotelli family etc. Still my mind couldn't connect it. So when I saw him i was like huh? Oh yeah...he's really Ghanian.

Topper for me tho was Jimmy Bullard. Now that's a mug only Mom could love.

I always imagine people to be Asian. Man I was surprised when I first saw Rooney and Lampard play.

Could be worse - these players could all be Facegens and then look like them in real life...

Piatti (http://generazioneditalenti.forumfree.net/?t=23106776) looks a little like lionel messi imo. not really suprised by his appearence.

Tevez and Riquelme suprised me though.

Stoke Poges?

It seems really odd that you see really famous players on a game then look them up, does anyone actually watch football at all?

Klimowicz
19-04-2008, 04:06
most people are talking from a 'before they were famous' perspective. Tevez and Riquelme were regular signings for me on the CM games, before Riquelme was at barcelona. Tevez and Mascherano were free transfers at the start of cm01-02 games. unless you're argentinian and have a deep knowledge of every player, you are unlikely to know what 16 year old players look like unless there is media hype.

thats the point of this thread.

I signed Balázs Dzsudzsák to one of my teams in FM08, couple of weeks later I was watching the Tottenham PSV UEFA cup game and he came on as a sub. Didn't look much like I had pictured him, didn't even know he had signed for PSV.
