The Ultimate FM Team of Legends - Nomination Round

Recommended Posts

Following on from this thread:

http://community.sigames.com/showthread.php/357134-FM-Team-of-Legends!?p=8905271#post8905271

I thought it'd be interesting to try and put together some sort of vote to decide the forum's combined favourite team of FM/CM Legends.

Basically what I want you to do, is to give me one player in each position - your favourite person from any of the CMs/FMs in that position. After a random period of time, I'll close this thread, compile the lists and start a vote to decide on The Ultimate FM Team of Legends!

Please submit in the following format:

GK: Frank Bins

DR: Rudy Trobalot

DL: Svandintho

DC: Charles Winchester

MR: Johnny Cage

ML: Clownshoes O'Callaghan

MC: Dafugeho

ST: Neil Brock

That's right, only 8 players so that you have to really think hard about who to include.

For people who play in multiple positions, pick any of them - but note, no retrained positions allowed. For people who played different positions in different versions, pick the position they played in when you thought they were at their best. These are the groups that count for each position, to avoid confusion:

GK: Only goalkeepers

DR: Right backs and Right wingbacks

DL: Left backs and Left wingbacks

DC: Sweepers and Central defenders

MR: Right midfielders and Right wingers

ML: Left midfielders and Left wingers

MC: Defensive midfielders, Central midfielders and Attacking central midfielders

ST: Strikers and Forwards (from when the game used to have both)

Please nominate for every position, or your entry will not be included. You may edit your post if you change your mind up until I close the nomination round.

GK: Francesco Toldo (Fiorentina)

DR: Lukasz Piszczek (cant remember now any great DR from previous CM's so i'll just nominate him as a fellow country-man :D )

DL: Bixente Lizarazu (Bayern)

DC: Rio Ferdinand (early Man Utd)

MR: Simao (Barcelona)

ML: Nano (Barcelona)

MC: Ivan De la Pena (cant remember now what team from, he was a real journeyman) or Vitaly Kutuzov (AC Milan) -> have to think about it, i will edit this later

ST: Patrick Kluivert (Barcelona)

I'm not 100% sure Aghahowa could play ML, maybe AML but couldn't think of anyone else.

Julius Agahowa ruled to be a Forward so can only be selected in the ST position:

A lot of those are from the earlier games, just because with smaller DB sizes the truly greats made more of an impact.

I have to say it pains me to leave out CM Italia 95's RM Dejan Savicevic, AMC Roberto Baggio and S Marco Van Basten. Although to be fair any of that 94 Milan team would walk into 99% of any World squad.

Also I have to have one player from the days when Everton players were massively over-rated.

Shame that Mark Collis doesn't count...

Oh curses. Craig Hignett. CM94EOS Jurgen Klinsmann. Pawel Brozek. Ugh this is too hard.

Re above : Hard to leave Hacken era Kim Kallstrom out. Taribo West was one of the free transfers. Didn't De La Pena play for Napoli? Or Celta. It was a light blue background I'm sure (Wiki says it was Lazio). Simao Sabrosa was amazing but so injury prone it was hilarious.

Are we talking top standard here or can it be anyone who has been loved across old games?

As a long time player I would love to see To Madeira shortlisted even though he wasn't real! Those of us who have played LLM on the game probably also still remember strikers such as Jamil Adam and Willy Topp.

The ML and MR position arent very imaginative from me but thats because all the old incarnations me like alot of other players would have played a 4-1-2-1-2 system and for me I remember alot more of my great players from that era than the current era of games. Hence I rarely played CM and early FMs with an ML or and MR.

My bad, in my mind Roberto Carlos never played for Inter, I thought he played for Tenerife before going to Real Madrid, but I was confused with Fernando Redondo

I can't remember well enough to come up with a player for each position. The three that stand out in my mind are Michael Duff, Dean Keates, and Onesimo.

Suprised only Duff has been mentioned of those.

I have just been reading Football Manager stole my life and it got me thinking about my "special one". the one individual I always had to buy no matter what was Richard Goulooze. I had to play him in the hole because his flair and creativity where 20. I have been playing this game since the Domark days, and nobody has come close. Still longing to find that special unknown in the current game.

Only started to take FM seriously during FM10, earlier versions mostly included me doing something having no idea what I was doing. Some of these players are likely to have been some of my first ever serious signings.

GK: Rene Adler

DR: Philipp Lahm (still don't know how I convinced him to leave Bayern)

DC: Sami Hyypia (was already 34 IIRC in FM10 but he was a beast)

DC: Nemanja Vidic

DL: Alex Sandro

DM: Sven Bender

CM: Ivan Rakitic

CM: Christian Eriksen

RW: Nani (shame he was only ever good on FM12 for me)

LW: Cristiano Ronaldo

ST: Javier Hernandez (monster, absolute monster, 155 goals in 4 seasons in FM12)
