    After browsing through teams for potential signings, I came across the legend that is Andy Townsend!. ...or not.

    Anyway I was just wondering if any of you gents have found any regens with the same name as former/current players?

    I had Michael Crawford in central midfield on FM2007, and I've had a German DC called Karl(heinz ) Marx. Not quite.

    I extend the original question to famous persons in general rather than just famous players

    Seem to remember having a David Cameron.

    There's a Thomas Cruise at Arsenal at the beginning of the game but he's not a newgen.

    I just played Arsenal in the CL quarter finals.

    The player who scored the winning goal was none other than F1 legend James Hunt!

    I've had a David Cameron too. Made a nice tidy profit on him within the space of 18 months

    On 07 I noticed this a lot at one point my team included the following, Jack Daniels, Micheal J Fox, Micheal Jackson, Johnnie Walker, and Roger Douglas (unless from NZ will probably not know him)

    But no amazingly famous names in my squad since...

    On a version years ago I tried to make a team of pop stars.

    We had Elvis, Prince, Paul Weller, Phil Collins, Robbie Williams and plenty more. All real players. The team did crap though.

    Would be brilliant if that really happened, I'm assuming that this isn't actually real.
