FM13: Lower League Players Thread

Recommended Posts

llp.jpg

The intention of this thread is to provide a starting point for people looking for players who will join clubs in the lowest playable leagues in FM 2013.

In England this would be League 2 down to the Blue Square South/North Divisions. For Spain it would be Segunda B division etc...

Players should be listed in the following format:

Name:

Age:

Position(s):

Ideal Role/Duty:

Current Club:

Country:

Work Permit:

Transfer Fee:

Club & League Signed For:

Simply cut & paste the text above and then fill out the relevant information. Try and ensure that the player name is correctly spelled!

It might also be beneficial to list the countries you loaded in your save game - If a player is listed here and isn't on your game it's more than likely because you haven't loaded that country's players when you started your save. I'll try and keep a running list of recommended countries to load on this opening post. That way, newcomers to this thread who are about to start a new game will get a good head start. :thup:

Finally if you have the time to do so, a screenshot of the player attribute screen would also be helpful.

REMEMBER: Results may vary! Depending on what countries you've loaded, what level of past experience you have (Sunday League or International Footballer) and also depending on your club's stature, some players might not wish to join you! It's part of the fun finding out...

Happy hunting!

Reunion

Is it me or is 2013 much harder for signing players? I've had absolutely no luck getting players from Curaçao or Reunion. They just don't seem to want to join this year (at least at BSS/BSN level). Anyone had any luck with them?

In some ways that's a good thing because it was too easy in previous years.

I did manage to sign somebody, and I've got a striker coming in December, however he is quite expensive and I got a little too carried away with his contract length. Coaches rate him good enough for league two though.

That is impressive :)

He's currently attached to a club in my save (I'm still in pre-season though) So I'll keep an eye out if he gets released.

On my Montrose game Rangers signed Michael Byrne from a Thailand Club and has been banging them in for free ex non-league player in England

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Michael_Byrne_(footballer_born_1985)

Also i've already said Leighton McIntosh. But for me Lloyd Young is a great player can play a few positions and has 11 assists in 19 games

He starts at Kidderminster but only signed on for the 2012/2013 season for £7K. His contract only runs until June 2013 so you can probably poach him around January to sign in July.

Think i'll raise that as a data issue - he was on loan last season at Winchester, from Eastleigh, but has now gone back to Australia.

(Winchester are my home town club).

This is the only guy I've kept from the original squad. His stats don't look up to much but he's my best player by far. Check out his goalscoring and assist records above.

He's also got the best average rating of the whole league. Terrific little player and a real workhorse.

Very Fond current memories of Ranieri in FM2012, since he is keeper for Lowestoft as we are in Championship play- he is good enough at Championship level in FM2012 (possibly even low Premier level)

Good luck mate :thup:

I think you'll find that once you go lower league it's hard to play any other way...

I'll have a few more for you soon.

Keep these players coming guys! I have a challenge for you, can you find some players Vauxhall can afford? They literally start with no wage budget, unless you sell staff and players. So if you can find decent players who you can sign to a contract under £100.

What you can try and do Tazzy is sign players on a non-contract. That way your wage budget won't get hit. Often they'll do this if you give them around £100 appearance fee or something.

When I start a new game I see who is on the highest wage and decide whether it's worth keeping them. If it isn't, then it's sometimes worth offering a mutual termination, take the £5K (or whatever the price is) hit in order to free up some budget.

Any chance of somebody doing a screenshot of the player I'm about to mention please? looks pretty handy from the start.

Name: Takura Mtandari

Age: 22

Positions: DR/DC/WBR

Ideal Role: Can play any of those roles well. See more info.

Current Club: Free agent (formally Spurs)

Country: (randomly) Canadian, Malawian, English

Work Permit: No

Transfer Fee: Free

Club and League signed for: Chester City (BSN)

More Info: Was a leading star for BSN when I signed him, 15 months on he is a good player for most league 2 sides. Attributes (at Oct 2013) include 10 tackling, 11 passing, 11 heading, 12 first touch, 12 concentration, 10 decisions and determination, 10 positioning, 13 team work, 15 work rate, 14 acceleration and pace. only weakness is 4 at marking but his other attributes make up for that really.

Looks like Mtandari is random attributes - 13 marking?

Thank you very much Valo. Possibly changes from each save but I have continued a BETA save if that could make any difference. To be fair I would sooner have the Mtandari in your screenshot! He looks a good all round defender on yours and also has 15 natural fitness compared to 9 on mine! I also have higher attributes in the areas which are unimportant for his position.

Still though in both cases he looks a good bet for lower leagues.

Quick note guys: Don't forget to bring in some homegrown players if you're in the BSP and about to get promoted. Otherwise you'll end up with greyed out players filling in the homegrown spots. That's especially disastrous if your wage budget is maxed out! I've made that mistake before :lol:

I'm into February on my first season. It's taken me since the Beta came out to get to this point (160 hrs - I'm a very methodical and slow tinkerer!)

Here's my squad list so far in case it's any use to anyone:

For those with a bigger budget (probably only Luton, Mansfield, maybe Wrexham and one or two others in the BSP), check out Claude Gnakpa.

Name: Claude Gnakpa

Age: 28

Position(s): MR (natural), DR/WBR/AMR (accomplished)

Ideal Role/Duty: winger

Current Club: free player

Country: French but last played in Scotland if that makes a difference

Work Permit: not needed

Transfer Fee: free

Club & League Signed For: Luton Town (BSP)

Big, strong, fantastic in the air and fairly quick with a decent bit of dribbling and crosses. His attributes seem to be the same as FM12 and he was fantastic for me on that. A bit of a cult hero at Luton in real life so he was too good to turn down. He was playing in League One and the Scottish Premier last season so he has plenty of ability. It took £1500 a week to sign him though and Luton is one of his favoured clubs, so top BSP and above only need apply.

Cheers.

This is the assortment of good players I signed:

I can't get any Reunion or Curaqo players this year for some reason. None of them want to join. I badly miss the likes of Guichard, Farro, Caro, Jansen etc.

Yeah it seems they'll only join BSP and up. Their wages are still low but when I tried BSN I couldn't get any of them.
