    Default Player Love

    Everyone must have a player who comes through every single time for your team, who you love like no-over player.

    Mine is Luc Castaignos. I <3 him.

    Who are yours?

    Diego Buonanotte, first discovered him in FM07, now make a point of buying him every time I play as a decent team.

    In my first two seasons with Kansas City in MLS it was Josh Wolff. He's too slow now. I'm keeping him to become a coach.

    There are 2 players, Junior Stanislas and Zavon Hines. Both players I play week in week out for West Ham and they always do really well.

    Jimmy Bullard. Lost count of how many times last season he saved us with a goal from nowhere, he's been the standout performer for my Southampton team. Bought for £4m, bosses the midfield week in/week out. Money well spent, even if he is knocking on a bit now.

    Maxim Tsigalko in an earlier FM. I nicknamed him God in the end ^^

    Singlehandedly took Logrones CF to the La Liga championship, scoring well in excess of a goal every two games in all competitions.

    even thought he's old, slow, fat, and pretty much useless now, it has to be the one and only Robbie 'God' Fowler. I always bring him back to the Reds to retire. Even give him a few goes off the bench in cup games. I spent my teenage years basically worshipping that guy. Love live God!

    One of the only totally unknown players I've ever discovered for myself: Antonin Rosa (LB/LWB). Not world class, but I always buy him now if I'm managing a mid-table (top league) team. Absolutely loved him on FM09 and he made me a profit of almost £20M (bought for £500k, sold for £20M).

    Christian Vieri...

    Now I know what you're thinking... oh no this guy's off his meds.. but honestly I'm telling the truth. He's free, his wage demands are low and he's my supersub. I've seriously lost count of the number of times I've brought him on at 60', 70' etc and he's either smashed a much-needed goal home or kept the defense busy and passed to someone else to smash home.

    In previous versions: Daniel Montenegro or Labinot Harbuzi.

    In this version: Probably Vincent Enyeama. Partly because he saves the team on countless occasions, but partly because he's really easy to wind up (via managerial mind games).

    Lukas Vrabec. A 23 years old regen i bought in FM08 for Man Utd and became the best scorer ever for the club. Always scored at least 40 goals per season and many above 60. Even when i managed to buy him for Benfica when he was 34 years old he managed to score 46 goals.

    As a big team it would have to be Toni Kroos, he's a real beast from attacking midfield.

    I actually have about three or so. I almost always start as CFR Cluj or Steaua Bucharest.

    Gonzalo Barreto - Danubio (FC)
    Milan Badelj - Dinamo Zagreb (AM RLC)
    Sergy Krivets - BATE Borisov (AM RLC)

    these three i always try to buy. on my save yesterday my chairman at CFR went over my head and accepted a 18,5 mil euro + 20% off next sale for Milan Badelj from Leverkusen. He was 23 year old. I always try to sell my players with 50% clause. I made a lot of money that way. I have a 48 mil euro transfer budget in my 4th season. Not bad for a Romanian team. Also have about 60 mil in the bank and a lot of money coming in from monthly installments. The shareholders taking my cash annoys me though...

    Barreto i once sold for 14m + 50% and Krivets for 12m + 50%

    Oh, i forgot about Silviu Lung JR. He becomes an immense goalkeeper. Always sold him to big clubs (Man Utd, Roma, Barcelona, etc)
    Cheers!!!

    Dzeko, Altidore, Maganalles (regen), Kjaer...rarely have bad performances. And when they do, all I have to do is criticize them and it lights a fire under them.

    Also my keeper, Delac, seems to always be 6.9+

    Robert Lewandowski at the moment. I'm trying to find him a good partner up front but all season long he's been my go-to-guy for goals. Not technical at all but quick and clinical.

    Plays for my local team IRL, Greenock Morton, and has been a bit of lower league FM legend for me for a couple of years now, especiallyon FM07 when he was a free scoring CD or RB as even though he's a striker by trade we played him at the back for a few games because of injuries. FM10 he scored 24 goals to win me an unlikely first season promotion to the SPL.

    My first ever FM game was with Morton (FM05) and since then, whenever I've had a rough spell in any game, I go to them to play for awhile. For whatever reason, I always do well with the 'Ton.

    Someday I'm going to go to Scotland...and I'm going to go to Cappielow.

    Chris Millar was my hero on that first game...ended up being in the EPL. I thought I'd gotten a pretty good deal until I saw his value had gone up by another decimal place with his new team!
