CM '02 talents. Where are they now?

Recommended Posts

I was wondering. The talents who turned out to be world class players in CM-versions between, let's say 2000 and 2004... Did they really become big players? This could be fun :). Does anyone has the names? Are there lists of former versions '-9' and '-10' players?

If you mean young(ish) talents from CM 01/02, CM 3, CM 4 that turned into world class players, or regularly plays for one of the world's big teams:

Darren Fletcher - Arjen Robben - Zlatan Ibrahimovic - Fernando Torres - Rafael van der Vaart - Christian Chivu - Kaka ... just out of the top of my head. Quite a few others turned into quite good players, who now play in one of the top 5 leagues in the world. And of course there was quite a few players that was not considered great talents in CM 01/02, but that became real life world class players anyway. Ronaldinho for example - hardly noticed in CM 01/02, but was voted world's best player in .... what year was it?

My best memories are of To Madeira, of course - a completely made-up player that you could find in a obscure portuguese club, but if you signed him (for about 5p), at any level, you were guaranteed 30+ goals a season. At least. But maybe that was CM '99 ... don't remember.

You confused some games, it seems to me, because Ronaldinho was an absolute beast in CM 01/02, playing for PSG at the time. To Madeira was indeed in CM 01/02, he was created by a Portuguese researcher.

Maxim Tsigalko, now that brings back some memories, he once scored 60 goals in 1 season for me. Anyone else remember Justin Georcelin who started as a 16 year old from Northampton? Always bought him, on one go he finished with over 800 games and over 500 goals when he retired.

I also remember Cesar Delgado, part of the same talented Boca squad that spawned Tevez and Rodrigo Palacio.

Shame he didn't live up to his computer game promise.

Was the 02/03 database for the xbox similar to 01/02 for pc?

if so...Matt Piper and Julio Arca, both became insanely good me.

Boca and River were goldmines for talent in those days.

Quote from wiki 'Tsigalko is perhaps best known in the public eye for the football management computer game Championship Manager: Season 01/02, for which he is considered by many players as a legend because of his massive goalscoring.' lol:D

Sherman Cardenas? or was he on a latter FM? Also Anthony Vanden Borre.

2006 IIRC, may have been 2007.

Signed him for Forest and he became a beast. Having said that, they roughly predicted Lewandowski too.

I remember Wayne Rooney (at Everton) was pretty mediocre in CM01/02.

I remember that he wasn't even assigned a position, and was just as likely to pop up as a right back as he was a striker.

Who was the fake player that was amazing?

Marcin Harasimowicz (PA 200 iirc) was a beast and he never exister IRL.

Emmanuel Olisadebe was a beast in my team. In reality.. his career went downhill midway through his stint at Panathinaikos and became a completely anonymous player for various low level teams.
