    3. Gareth Williams - Nottingham Forest

    To Madiera - CM01/02: about 95K, good pace, great finishing, absolutely amazing for that money.
    Taribo West - CM01/02: free at the start of the unpatched game and one of the best defenders in the world.

    The amazing 01/02 champ man season with Barcelona made a complete wonderteam with the likes of:

    Figo and Christian Vieri ripping Spain up but eventually losing in the greatest champs league game ever to Leverkusen like 5-3 or something like that.

    FM 06 or something i think... Real Madrid team when Martin Petrov was brought in as a left winger and stunned us all by winning world player of the year ro something sick like that.

    Oh, Bakirciouglu(sp) was great in CM 00/01 but my favourite player is Mark Burchill - absolute legend. 32 goals in 35(4) matches or something. Was better than Shearer - and Burchill-Shearer was the best attacking duo after Vieri-Ronaldo(Inter)...

    I'm going to play some Celtic in CM 00/01 right now...

    Anatoly Todorov and Evandro Roncotto are my two all time favorite players (CM 03/04). Todorov was a striker and Roncotto was a FLC. Deadliest striker pairing I´ve ever had and I´ve been playing since the very first champ man (that´s a long time ago) and Football Manager 3 before that. I think Todorov got close to 50 goals one season for me and Roncotto got some 30 something assists and well over 20 goals. Todorov was Bulgarian and Roncotto ended up playing for England at the age of 27 since he was strangely never picked for Brazil.

    Tony Dennis (regen) was a centre back I loved. Nurtured him and he started playing in my first team at 17. Captained the side from 22 and won many awards and trophies. Never did get his stamina over 12 though

    Seconded. Pretty sure it was 00/01, either that or 01/02. Super striker, 20 pace, 20 agility, 20 acceleration, 20 finishing... the list goes on

    Yeah, all the oldies from 01/02, To Madeira, Hugo Pinheiro, Mark Kerr, Kim Kallstrom, Taribo West, Mike Duff, Kieren Richardson (you could sign him on a free at the start of the game) Labinot Harbuzi, Joao Paiva

    Until recently, Joleon Lescott was always the big bargain buy up until his move to Everton too

    From 03/04 it has to be Daniel Braaten

    and i think Lebo Mokoena from 06 was a superstar aswell, though i may have gotten the version wrong

    A Petition should be made to get To Madeira back in the new fm for sheer nostalgia, haha

    Mark Kerr - 01/02 i think
    porarinn kristjansson, orri freyr oskarsson - 03/04
    Dean Ashton - FM05
    Drogba, Menez, Serge Gapke, Mido, Carew - FM07
    Menez, Mido, Samaras - FM08

    Those were the best players I've signed over the years. I missed out FM06 because I didn't really get to play it as my PC had a virus that year .

    I would have to say To Madeira is the one I remember. He was something special.

    For favourite recent legend ie FM - I would say Kerlon in either 06 or 07. I cant remember but he was a beast.

    Nii Lamptey
    Roberto Baggio (From Juve, CM Italia)
    Porarrin Kristjansson
    Mark Collis (Cambridge, CM94EOS)
    Ferrah Orosco ( ditto )
    Alexandre Farnarud
    Kim Kallstrom (Haken)
    Kennedy Bakircioglu (Hammarby)
    Adrian Mihalcea
    Marco Piovanelli (Brescia, CM Italia)
    Florian Petre (Dinamo Buc, probably CM3)

    Those are the ones that spring to mind.

    Nii Lamptey is the greatest CM player ever, and Roberto Baggio is my all-time FM/Real-Life player)

    Rafael van der Vaart in 08

    He scored 23 goals in the premiership for me last season, only cost me 25 mill aussie dollars

    Also Vincent Kompany im 08

    Class player and cheap for his relative quality

    Cavenaghi and Anatoli Todorov -- the latter was unreal.

    Mpenza's also worth a mention.

    Alexandros Papadopoulos - greek striker in CM0102.
    Unknown to many, but in my longest game in the last CM3 - over 30 seasons playing online with 2 other mates (this must be a record) - everbody feared him!
    Scored over 700 goals in his entire career, both for clubs and national team... Hardly got injured, would score regularly and also decide big matches!
    How I miss him...

    I can always remember Djalminha (moany bugger) and Florentin Petre going in the first few weeks to someone decent in CM00/01. Edmundo was another moany sod. Ronaldinho was quality in that game, as was Roque santa cruz if i remember.

    Cherno Samba - became a brilliant player after 2 years out on loan in the Championship 03/04
    Morten Gamst Pedersen - owned my midfield 03/04
    Kennedy Bakircioglu - was a sensation in 00/01, you just could sign him straight away though, he'd always reject
    Martin Palermo - 00/01
    Stan Collymore - 00/01 - the Collymore/Palmero combination used to land about 50+ goals a season for my team
    Chris Sutton - 00/01 - always picked him in my England squad and was a genius! (could never work out why he was never picked for England irl)!

    Tonton Zola Mokouko. Won CL final with 2 goals, playing injured at 60% or something like that. Loved him. *sniff*

    Pele (the same one who now plays for WBA) was the best young DM on 01/02 for me. It's always great to see players like that crop up IRL years later.

    Also the super swedes, Lunden, Selakovic, Kallstrom, Moukoko, Bakircioglu made an awesome arrowhead together.

    Emmanuel Osei Kuffour needs a mention, and so does Dionisis Chiotis.


    Seeing Szymkowiak score the winner in the world cup final was pretty special as well.

    actually i've got another one: Kurniwan (i think that was how you spelt it) back in 99/00 he was from Indonesia, was a great player up till the Championship, wasn't EPL material. Was also a star for me as the Canberra Cosmos in the old NSL here in Australia

    I remember everyone going on and on about Oskarsson and Sigpursson, (or whatever). They were classed as "cheat" players though and I have never signed either.

    Kim Kallstrom was another who was more famous as a FM player than he was in real life, (not too many of them around I am sure).

    The only real superstar I have ever signed was Freddy Guarin in CM03/04 (which I think was the first game he was in). It took me a while t get him but boy was he good when I did. He used to just sit in front of the back 4 breaking up attacls and slamming in free-kicks and launching long throws into the box. God I loved that save. I signed Freddy Adu in that save too but couldn't see what all the fuss was about and let him go pretty quickly.

    To Madeira wasn't even a real player, (I don't think, but maybe that was someone else I'm thinking of).

    Managing in the lower leagues it was Carlo Corrazin who was alegend when I first started playing and then I remember John Doolan being pretty immense inabout CM3/CM4 and nicknaming him "the Mailman".

    CM03/04 was the first time I ever had any real long lasting success and it started with a certain Super Kyle scoring goals all over the shop as he fired my little Barnet side up to the Premiership. He was backed up in no small way by Tony Taggart, (then of Barnet but since moved on), who was in the headlines as recently as last season when he scored a dramatic last minute winner foir Havant & Waterlooville against someone in the FA Cup that saw them progress to play Liverpool in the next round and give them a but of a scare.

    Super Kyle continued to be a legend through the swap from CM to FM and was excellent in FM up until but not includinig FM08. Now he has scored 6 goals in 6 games this season for FC Utd could we see his star about to shine brightly in real life?

    Then we had John Harkness, (left back). Played in my Hitchin team that went all the way from Conference South to Premiership in about FM06 & FM07 and scored 100 goals for my Lisburn Rangers team, (from full back), despite only joining as a 29 year old.

    The most recent is McIlmurray in FM08 who became the first GK in FM history, (as far as I am aware), to score 100 career goals, (currently on 104 and still going strong).

    I've got to admit that having a player in FM makes me take an interest in their real life performances.

    I will never forget my Arsenal team in FM 2005: My best players were Bonaventure Kalou, Thierry Henry, Lebohang Mokoena, Marek Jankulovski, Ronaldinho, Juninho, Patrick Vieira, Ashley Cole, Lauren, Sol Campbell, Fábio and other legends.

    There's one of these threads every other week, yet my choice seems to change every time. My vote is for Giuliano Grazioli, he was awesome for me when I first started playing the game.

    Ah Skalidis, great shout - he scored a stupid amount of goals for me.

    Also, Enzo Scorza, who single handedly got my Swansea team to the Premiership a couple of years ago.

    My most recent favourite player is Alexander Rondon, who scores so many goals for me (again with Swansea) in FM08.

    Eduardo Taboada a couple of years ago, brilliant young Spanish goalkeeper, not sure if he was actually real.

    There's a couple of players whose names escape me right now - a Norwegian teenager a few years ago who could play in every single outfield position (I've been trying to remember so I could sign him in FMLive, but to no avail), and an Italian striker in CM03/04 who I played up front with Rooney for Everton and they both scored over 60 goals in one season. He was really obscure and I've never heard of him outside the game. Think it was Davide something...

    I may actually have to reinstall some older copies of the game to find them again.

    EDIT: Davide Moscardelli! That was the one! He scored so many goals with Rooney.

    I found this on wikipedia, i had no idea these players didn't exist.

    ''The 01/02 edition has not been without its critics however. Some have criticised the simple graphics, while others have complained about the difficulty (namely, the game being too easy). Another main reason for criticism was the existence of 'cheat players' - i.e. players whose abilities in the game are far greater than in real life, these players being inexpensive and very effective in game. An example of a cheat player is Tó Madeira, who is not actually a real life player. Others such as Maxim Tsigalko, Sergey Nikiforenko, Ibrahim Said and the infamous 'super Swedes' and 'super Greeks', whichwere found in the official cm0102v3968 update and were not part of the original database, i.e. Dionisis Chiotis, Stilianos Doukas, Giannis Kalogeras, Achileas Kourtoglou, Anastasios Skalidis, Alexandros Papadopoulos and Nikolaos Tobros were also over rated by a considerable amount, even some of them are not real life player. Later some also discovered 'super Norwegians', i.e. Anders Matisen, Kristian Ravneng, Tom Arild Fredriksen, Ole Christian Andersen, Tommy Larsen, Henrik Martinsen, Stig Jensen and infamous Paal "Hyypia" Solie.
    Whilst non-real life players are considered cheating by the experienced players of CM 01/02, the "Super Greeks" and "Super Swedes", and other players such as Cherno Samba & Franco Costanzo are considered perfectly fine. For example the player Kim Källström was considered to be vastly over-rated and would never amount to anything, yet recently has made a name for himself as "the Swedish Steven Gerrard."
    It is also possible to cheat by appointing new managers for two teams who are due to play one another.
    For the first time, the game did not include background pictures of the ground at which the current game was being played.''

    Alesandro D'Amico (sp) was a great striker in one of the older games. One of the regens I think...he had some great years in my West Ham team.

    Radamel Falcao Garcia (CM03/04), bought him on a long term game with Real Madrid that I got really into (had got bored with my usual Liverpool one) and by the end of the noughties/start of the tens he'd routinely bang in 40/50 goals a season in all competitions without fail, he had 20 for finishing and off the ball and accelerated the departure of both Raul and Ronaldo. Lost the save at around 2015-ish when my laptop crashed, was gutted but by then Football Manager 2006 (i skipped 05) was out so moved on to that.

    Since then I've never really had any players that stand out. Mascherano has been consistently world class in every game for me since 03/04 and I always bought him without fail until he moved to Liverpool anyway. I remember Fabio Aurelio and Gabriel Paletta both being awesome in FM06 before Liverpool bought them (and indeed before I'd even heard of them!) IRL.

    I think almost all of them were real apart from T* M******. Or were there any other fakes? I signed Tsigalko on 07 for old times' sake, he was actually ok (and he's definitely real).
