My best players for my FC United side that helped me get the National Hero achivement, also very good signings in FM18:
Jack Truelove (DL) - speedy fullback, not spectacular stats, not great margin for growing, but managed an average over 7.05 even in Championship (in 2021)
Mich'el Parker (CB) - Liverpool youth, no agility and no determination, but develops alot.
Stephen Jordan (CB) - mentioned before, veteran CB, great tutor. Retires in 2-3 years.
Stephen Akbas (DR) - Hull youth, great technique, great speed, develops well, can become a Premier League player.
Andrew Osei-Bonsu (BWM) - a physical beast from MK Dons. I could only get him on loan.
Sam Sheridan (DLP) - already at club, dead ball specialist, consistent playmaker, struggles above League Two.
Sean Williams (MC/AMC) - not spectacular, not great stats, but super reliable. Good only for non-league.
Callum Chettle (MC) - the best underrated young midfielder from Peterborough. Available on loan, then for free. Gets to become a Premier Division player. Scores 6+ goals per season from 20-25m shots. Averages over 7.30
Will Patching (AMC) - former City youth, has great physique, develops nicely, can be sold 500k+.
Petre Skapetis (ST) - mentioned before, well-rounded, a killer for non-league. Stoke product, the only one I can't find on FM18
Simen Moller (ST) - a super-consistent norwegian target man in his prime, wants lots of money (60-70k a year), but scores 30+ goals a season, even in League Two. The only thing is... he's "retired from professional football", so tie him with a long contract before switching to professional status, I missed that chance.
There are no wingers I can recommend, I played a narrow 4-3-1-2
