    Default Oldest Player on 8.0.2?

    Following on from the known issues about player aging I was wondering what is the oldest you have seen a player play (after the first couple of years)?

    I still have Daniel Van Buyten on my books at age 38. He hasnt played for me for about 6 seasons! I just loan him out to my belgian feeder team while I wait for him to get a staff profile.

    I am hoping that I can keep him going to 40, however I dont have an option to offer him a new contract any more so guess this is his last season as a player.

    So whats the oldest you have seen a player play?

    Lampard at 38 for me. Not very good as I've seen loads of older players before on other peoples games but oh well.

    I had a goalkeeper as player / coach called markus berger in some distant future who went on until 43.

    only game I ever kept someone above 32 though (except for keepers maybe)

    Beckham won his 286th cap on my last save, at the young age of 73.

    Only joking, I think the oldest player I've seen on FM was a 44yr-old keeper.
    Damned if I can remember his name though.
