  1. Couple of post-update talents... Edvard Tagseth - former Liverpool midfielder will need to work on his strength but otherwise looks very promising. Tobias Gulliksen - biggest talent to emerge at Stromsgodset since Odegaard...
  2. Few I've noticed since the data update... Filip Stevanovic - love this kid; insanely developed at 16, 2 footed, cheap, versatile and huge potential. A must. Strahinja Pavlovic - a member of FM's most frustrating club: highly-rated as soon as signed by a bigger club. Valentin Antov - been a while since Bulgaria had much of note in FM but this kid looks to have the potential to become a very well-rounded defender. Becir Omeragic - Another very promising young centre back Marlon Torres - little older but decent pick-up for mid-sized leagues; should have good resale value. Gerald Tavara - technically outstanding but a little lightweight and workshy but seems to have the potential to develop weak areas. Andi Zeqiri - wanted by a host of top clubs at game start, presumably indicative of high potential.
  3. 16 y/o Filip Stevanovic of Partizan Belgrade looks absolutely unreal. Teammate Strahinja Pavlovic too but sadly, he's been signed by Monaco and loaned back. Every chance he's playing at close to his potential but anyone who likes a big centre forward to hold up the ball and bring others into play should seriously consider Dinamo Zagreb's Bruno Petkovic; born to fulfil the 'good touch for a big man' cliché. Elsewhere, teenage CSKA Sofia centre back Valentin Antov looks promising, though maybe not for those who like to play a high line.
  4. Thanks - have corrected the spelling mistake in my initial post. Also worth bearing in mind that Lovric's natural fitness is random so possible to get far luckier than in your screenshot.
  5. For the bargain hunters, like the look of the below: Marko Djira (aggressive, versatile holding mid/inverted left back with good physicals) Kristijan Lovric (physical, goalscoring inside forward) Gerald Tavara (languid South American creator with a wonderful left foot) Gianfranco Chavez (quick if lightweight Peruvian centre back with ball playing potential) Ravil Tagir (16 y/old Kazakh-born Turk playing in his country's second tier. Huge potential as a classy, left-sided centre back)
  6. Absolute great find, that but another to enjoy before the winter patch - he's signed for a Turkish club recently.
  7. Found my defence was a bit leaky with him in the side...
  8. And a few from the next generation - seems that the Norwegians have a few following Odegaard and Haaland... Odin Thiago Holm - seen as the next big thing in Norway IRL, could be set for a breakthrough season in Oslo: Bryan Fiabema - will be at Chelsea come the winter update but for now, remains in Tromso and looks well worth developing: Erik Tobias Sandberg - on loan for the first season but has the makings of a very good, well-rounded centre back: Joshua Kitolano - raw but physically impressive brother of Wolves prospect John: And a couple outside of Norway... Isak Bergmann Johannesson - son of ex-Villa midfielder Joey Gudjonsson, seen as a big prospect in Sweden: Mikkel Damsgaard - big favourite of mine both in FM and IRL but recently agreed an end-of-season switch to Sampdoria. Still, qualifies for now and is a wonderful, if slight, creative midfielder:
  9. Most of the top talents in the region already mentioned but would also add: Daleho Irandust - been rated for some time but still in Sweden with Hacken. Gifted playmaker, if a little lacking physically: Alhassan Yusuf - well-rounded midfielder with potential for the top leagues: Simon Olsson - classy deep-lying passer: Nils Frohling - pacey, direct striker, maybe lacking a little creatively but looks worth developing: Oscar Linnér - giant 'keeper; not the greatest with his feet but good at all the traditional skills: Frederik Nielsen - another giant, this time a centre back in the Danish 2nd tier with good-playing skills:
  10. Have been critical of the last couple of FMs for a lack of movement/central play/creative and poor finishing but around 10 games into the latest update, am finding this to be the most enjoyable ME since at least FM18. The reliance on set-pieces for goals seems to have ended (an issue that was completely ruining the game, IMO), my creative central players are racking up 100+ passes per game and the variety of play/build is infinitely better. Still find that my creative midfielders perhaps score more goals from range than they should and perhaps don't deliver quite enough direct assists (though watching my goals, they seem to be playing the 'pre-assist' pass; arguably more realistic?). Feel that a slight tactical tweak will be necessary as I found that a 2 striker system mitigated the poor finishing of the previous ME to an extent but now find whilst both are scoring more regularly, neither is sufficiently involved in build-up - my false 9 especially is making only a dozen passes per game; perhaps an indication that there remains an issue with midfielders playing the ball forwards to central areas? Still, overall am now finding that I enjoy the game and it's certainly a step in the right direction so kudos to SI for acting on feedback and making these changes
  11. Few previously mentioned here but for me, the best players still based in Scandinavia are probably: Sweden Daleho Irandust Simon Olsson Isak Pettersson (gk) Oscar Linnér (gk) Nils Froling Norway Patrick Berg Sondre Rossbach (gk) Odin Thiago Holm Fredrik Andre Bjorkan Tobias Christensen Onni Valakari (Finnish but Norway-based) Denmark Mikkel Damsgaard Jonas Wind (though he starts the game with a long-term injury) Victor Nelsson Jeppe Hobjerg Magnus Kofod Jacob Christensen Jacob Sorensen Tobias Borkeeiet (Norwegian but Denmark-based) Simon Tibbling (Swedish but Denmark-based) Personally, highly recommend the Norway-based trio of Berg, Christensen and Bjorkan. Valakari always looks very decent too.
  12. Marcin Harasimowicz, the digital Thierry Henry, from 3rd tier Gwardia Warsaw. Think this was in CM01/02 or maybe 00/01 - whichever version had a ludicrous number of quality Polish players; Arkadiusz Bak, Kazimierz Moskal, Pawel Brozek et al. Teammate Jaroslaw Swietochowski, a playmaking midfielder, was a gem too. Both could be bought for something luicrously paltry, like £60k.
  13. 2nd worst for me, narrow improvement on FM19 but both suffer enormously from a lack of central creativity/movement and the joyless uber-caution of the AI.
  14. One thousand times this. Everything outside of the ME, especially the database, is great but watching the same tedious, repetitive, soporific game time after time is just agony and completely ruins the game.
  15. 100%. Average/poor teams are FAR too effective defensively; negativity and weight of numbers seem to massively trump player quality/attributes. I'd expect lower quality players to get caught out/make mistakes but too often, poor teams are all but inpregnable from open play if they sit deep.
