Memories: FM07 Wonderkids


Recommended Posts

I found on this website a list of some wonderkids of FM07.  FM got right players such as Aguero, Sanchez, Bale, Costil, Akinfeev, Marcelo, etc And then there are some weirds cases like Antonio Cerrajero. 14 years old future ballon d'or in game, seemingly didnt even turn professional in real life.

It seems nowadays FM take less risks regarding wonderkids. They attribute high potential to a kid only when a he has already proven himself in first team football. Agree?

Just mentioned Oscar Ustari in another post.

Can't remember when the negative potential numbers were introduced, but I think that's helped the wonderkid overpopulation tremendously.

Ah, Sherman Cardenas and Nicolas Millan, world beaters!

Yeah, @Miles Jacobson has discussed it a few times...

 

They are trying to cut out mistakes.. what we see as fun obscure players being world class in game and not irl, SI and Miles see as data errors..

 

Not surprising they are few and far between as the game is progressing..

That said, I miss the days of Mark Kerr, bakircioglu Cardenas and co!

Very much that is the case in my opinion. I also learned this the hard way, it was my fault that "Orhan Ademi", a player that has not proven yet to be a solid striker for German 2nd league levels IRL ended up being sold to clubs such as Manchester United in certain FM scenarios. Ever since I made that mistake rating this player that good, seeing what damage it would cause to a false perception of his talent, I had a more conservative approach to how I would rate players. Judging by my own case I would say FM has made similar experiences overall with wonderkids. (That happened 4-5 years ago, this player now is a solid 3rd level striker, age 25+)
