FM18: Hidden Gems

Recommended Posts

idk if he was mentored before, but Pedrinho from Pacos de Ferreira can be brought for 5mln at game start. He got great personality, consistency and hes just very good CM for mid/top table sides.

i haven't play fm18 yet but bogdan vatajelu ( sparta prague ) is decent player as LB and i'm always give a go for radim reznik ( viktoria plzen ) as RB. just check them out, maybe worth a try for your team.

Odd though - check his CA, RCA and PA. Again, I haven't actually edited Mista, just moved him to my club.

maybe you do not edit the stats but... i think you have edit and then increased his CA.. so when you start the game his stats increased than he used to be. ( original stats by original CA )

Currently managing Fiorentina, haven't managed to make it into Europe and great luck with injuries so no game time for my prospects. I was just wondering if anyone had screenshots of Dusan Vlahovic, Gabriele Gori or Martin Graiciar a few years on? Preferably if you've ended up with one of them yourself, but also would just be happy to see if they're in a top division by say 2020.

Djordje Jovanovic

Serbian Forward from FK Partizan, 18 years old. Very good player. Actually i am playing in Legia Warszawa, i bought him for 450k euro and i think in the future you can sell him for more than 50 million euro. He likes playing with everyone, in the offensive formation. He is tall and very strong.

Luka Adzic looks bright, and only 700.000-1 mil euro from start.

Manu Morlanes from villarreal b, has a buyout, i it is not fixed, so need to look at it a every game. this game with schalke, he cost less then a 1 mil euro

ZUj72Ne.png


Nacho Mèndez from gijon b, has some crazy numbers, but he has a high buyout. 7.5 mil euro.. 2 year to contract runs out, maybe you can get him that way.

Not heard anything about him yet.  I am a big fan of Mamadou Coulibaly, who is onloan at Pescara early doors from Udinese.  Great at doing the dirty work in midfield, either as BWM, Carillero or Mezzala.  Magic energy and consistency, cost a pretty penny but I found him relatively late on after a good loan spell at Wolves.  He's played 60 games for me in each of the last two seasons, so natural fitness and injury proneness are positive too.  I will upload a SS when I get in tonight.5ab41078269a4_ScreenShot2018-03-22at20_20_27.thumb.png.c7ec2a07363b47f9abeb0c0fc9609d95.png

Wuilker Farinez from Millonarios in Colombia. 19 year old Venezuelan goalkeeper with unbelievable potential, grows to be a top Premiership 'keeper, only real downside is he isn't that tall and has low-ish stats for jumping and aerial reach.

Also, check out FC Liefering and its parent club, RB Salzburg. Both clubs rammed full of youth talents as they are essentially feeder clubs for RB Leipzig in the Bundesliga.

FC Liefering have some very good youngsters in the game. Patson Daka is the most recent one to make the move to Salzburg. Looks like a decent striker both in real life and FM.

I mentioned Daka a long ways back in this thread, and I think he's a bit better on the data update. Lokomotiv Moscow sometimes buy, which is ironically the club I was managing when I first spotted him.

Duarte Valente from Estoril B is a great young prospect at DM for anyone on a budget. Snapped him up for 135k in my first season at Parma (Jan transfer window).

He has excellent mentals with decent technique. Would fit into a Very Fluid system as a “complete” player. I use him as a DLP(S) in the DM strata but is probably more suited to traditional DM roles.

His professionalism and high determination means he has rapidly improved in the 9 months he’s been in my squad and ready for regular first team football even at the age of 18/19.

I can verify this.

Red Bull Salzburg's Austrian farm club, of course. Currently managing them in Erste Liga and Mahmadou Dembélé, Luca Meisl, Nico Gorzel, and Romano Schmid are quite comfortably of Austrian Bundesliga quality already, along with Enock Mwepu and Patson Daka, who are both full Zambian internationals. There's a handful of prospects—Gölles, Karic, Mensah, Stumberger, Sturm, Meister, Rodrigo—that need a fair amount of work, but each have very interesting skillsets which make them quite exciting. Well worth your time.

Gonzalo Maroni. I signed him from Boca for a bargain 5.25 million in my third season. I'm retraining him as an inside forward down the left and I will give him the PPI to cut in from the left onto his right foot to utilise his 15 long shots. I will also train him to play killer balls often to take advantage of his 15 passing and 16 vision. Obviously, he's still only 20 on my save and most of these stats should improve further. I'm very excited to see how he turns out!

Meisl, Schmid, Daka, Gölles, Stumberger and Meister, I always managed to get the best out of them. Not world beater, but solid starters for any EL team.

Unfortunately Mensah never seems to develope, no matter how much playing time or tutoring I give him. Also Koita is better than Daka, currently scoring 30 goals a season for Salzburg each year.

He gets hidden with all the fuss from Serie A FM managers about Felice D'Amico, but Simone Lo Faso, on loan from Palermo to Fiorentina, is almost the same player. I have them both now, stats are very similar, D'Amico has higher PA but Lo Faso has played outstandingly as a Winger in my team that lost the title to an 89th minute equaliser in my 2nd season. Like D'Amico he's natural across the AM positions with high flair and the "knocks ball past opponent" trait. But Fiorentina never have much in the way of resources so he'll potentially be reasonably cheap for a good top division winger.

I really liked Patson Daka because of his variance in styles; good athlete, technically pretty good and decent mentally. You could mould him into something quite complete across all aspects of his game. Same could be applied for Enock Mwepu. My favourites from my year there would be the latter, Luca Meisl, Mahmadou Dembélé and Dominik Stumberger. 

I'm now at Werder Bremen, having spent a year at FC FCSB, and trying to sign any of them from Liefering is quite difficult. Romano Schmid and Mahmadou Dembélé are the only two to have made the step up to Salzburg. For anyone reading this, if you're a low-to-mid table club in any top five league, then FC Liefering (and Red Bull Salzburg) is a good place to do your shopping.

Victor Gyokeres for Brighton, I am 3 seasons in and he's now ousted all of my strikers both new and old and is currently the second top scorer in the division behind Lukaku. I wondered if it was a one off but all my Brighton supporting friends have found the same thing, he is a monster. I have just turned down a 30 million pound offer from Red Bull in Germany for him because he signed a new contract. Thank goodness.

 

Another is a Brazilian LB called Leo, he starts out at FLU but is on loan at Gent in my first season, I bought him for 14.5 million in 2018/19 and he's started ever since. Monaco and Liverpool both want him, he's only young as well. When I get home I'll upload pics.

Alejandro Pozo

My DoF brought him in on loan in my third season, and he helped Fulham to a Champions league qualification campaign with 18 assists and 6 goal playing as a Wide Midfielder on Attack.

Snapped him up for 17.75M after finding out that was his release clause.

I play with a midfield two - a DLP and a CM.

I'm stacked with options for the DLP - but I can't seem to find anyone that fits the CM role perfectly. Any recommendations? I'm playing as Benfica, end of second season with approx £25M to spend.

Ignore it - just look at the attributes for CM with the duty you're using and find a guy who's good at them.

Sorry if this player has been posted, he’s a deep lying playmaker from Nordsjelland and his name is Mathias Jensen, he’s 22 and he’s pretty good for a lower Premier League side, he’s got a couple of nice PPMs aswell, he’s very cheap, I bought him at the end of the first season, for Leeds, for 2.6m + some additional clauses.

 

I’ll post a screenshot tomorrow when I get on my laptop.

Not really hidden, but I'm amazed at the development of Inter youth players on my current save.
All of them are already at the club when the game starts, except for Lo Faso. You can get him for 10-15mil€ from Palermo.

Try Dario Maresic - free transfer for Sturm Graz in January and you're sorted for 15 years for a Ball playing CB. Alternatives include Benjamin Pavard [not really a hidden gem] (if you've got the money), Ross McCrorie from Rangers was amazing for me until Arsenal paid £35m 10 years into the game for him.  There are some other names but they're not as 'hidden'

I LOVE either Dominik Kohr (from Leverkusen) or Mamadou Coulibaly (Udinese) for the BWM role.  Kohr is usually listed at some point and can be bought for £5-7 million.  Coulibaly is different and may take £15-£20 million to buy but is only 20 so sorts you out for life.

 

I don't tend to play with the other roles so cannot really help you with them.

There are some Screenshots of those players over the course of the thread.
