    Default Please come and save me plea

    Who think players in FM should tell you to come and buy them? A player might have a favorite club as 'Man Utd' and if your Man Utd manager then that player will come and tell you that, but only if they are good enough, a conference player wouldn't say that for example. It can be any player who thinks your club will be the right move, also if you have players who are unsettled then they can do the same also.

    isnt there a function like this already where player's agent's tell you that their clients have put you on a list of clubs they wish to join?

    That would be quite neat.

    It should be quite rare, though.

    It (kinda) happens this way. An agent will approach you and ask you to bid for his player saying their would be really interested in a move.

    Isn't it against the rules for players to contact other clubs except in the period before their contract expires?

    I couldn't say Glyn, but I was approached by a players agent after I had declared an interest in him and had a bid rejected for him by his club. The agent asked me to bid for the player as he would welcome the move (or something to that effect). His contract wasn't out for another 3 or 4 years.

    Yeah I had this also where an agent of a player I had loaned twice said he wanted a move and Luton was his preferred destination.

    Unfortunately didn't have the funds to sign him.

    think the rule is clubs cant tap up players, not sure it works in the other direction?

    I think if this was included it would be done through the media like Berbatov, Barry etc

    Already you (very rarely) get agents sending you a "video" of their player. I really like this feature and it should be used a lot more than it is. They have no problem asking you about the same player over and over and over and over so this should be fun. You can just click past it too if you like.

    I thought the video was removed after FM07?

    Is this not basically requesting to be on the transfer list?

    I might be dreaming it but i'm pretty sure I've had it on 08. Anyone care to let me know if I'm hallucinating, or if my brain is merging the years now.

    It's good, sure. Nice when a player desperately wants to play for you, but it should be a rare occurence, as others have said.

    good idea, but poorly asked mate!

    i'm all for agents coming to me, especially if their player is coming off contract and doesn't want to resign with his current club, or is a youth player at a League 2 team and wants the chance to play in my EPL youth team.
