the thread about Sherman Cardenas got me thinking. How many times over the years has a player been good in FM but turned out to be a turkey IRL.
I remember I used to always sign Victor Leonenko who was a goal machine in one of the old ones, but never really did much IRL.
Another one was Ibrahim Bakayoko, he was a huge turkey in real life but was good in earlier CM.
Any others you have bought who turned out to be average IRL?
