    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!

    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...

    I had a striker come through my youth academy at Sheffield Wednesday... Steve McClaren. He was a beast.

    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.
