Found some hidden new gems:

Emelec (Ecuador) - Johan Mina, Secondary striker/winger

Youth academy in Nigeria - Samson Tijani (altough random stats)

Both are 17 years old and have a CA of 95 and a potential of -8

Accra Lions (Ghana) Rabi Ibrahim (strong defenisive midfielder/central defender)

This guy is 18.

Bargain wonderkids.

Hi All, just a quick one!

After installing the new winter update, it still says [public beta] next to Football Manager 2020 on Steam. 

Is this normal? Do I need to uninstall the public beta at all? (If so, how would i do that?) 

Any info & help is appreciated! 

Cheers guys!

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)

spelling mistake in Djira

Yeah you don't need to be on the public beta now...

 

Right click on fm20 in steam, properties, betas tab, drop down menu to 'none'

Lovric looks great :

The others are interesting, will keep them in mind when i play a non WP needing team.

Ansu Fati anyone?

Crucially, he has one of the highest potentials in the game now..  i'll put it in spoilers below...

 

-95, only 6-7 players in the database with that potential

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.

Someone else has asked already, but if anyone could post Gabriel Martinelli and possibly Bukayo Saka, I would really appreciate it.

Glad that he finally got an significant upgrade, but it's still a mess. There's no way his strength is that much better than his technique, passing, first touch, dribbling, corners, agility or vision.

Thank you ... doesn’t look that they were given much in the way of a boost, aside from a slight general increase. 

Martinelli is about the same. Crazy that now he has a static PA which is not even higher than Nketiah lol. That's disappointing ! He's a future star IRL...

Agreed - not tempting enough for me to start a new Arsenal save … kinda glad.

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.

Generally speaking, researchers won't change anything that drastically after half a season... not a whole lot to go from yet .

I've never looked at attributes as directly comparable like that tbh, but I see what you're saying.

Thank you! As a fellow Welsh man, i'm sure you agree he deserves a boost!

Love this thread - anyone else that stands out that has had an increase/decrease?

He looks promising for sure! our future looks pretty bright actually in terms of the national team :)

Young English (or British) players are bit overrated aren't they? 

Not anymore so than other leagues imo?  In what way? We have seen plenty of european clubs come in for british youngsters of late and the only reason more haven't done so is the price of british players, which is purely down to their value to british clubs who are generally much more wealthy than other leagues in europe... 

 

But the players? you won't find many leagues producing better players from academies..

James Garner, for example, would be one of the better players in the championship based on his FM profile but he's made 2 league appearances in his career. I agree that British clubs are finally producing great talent but their stats are surely too high for a lot of players. I'll confess I've never watched Neco Williams play but 14 crossing and 16 passing at 18 (with poor vision admittedly) would mean he's one of the most technically proficient fullbacks in the world.

Since had a bit of a downgrade but Sidnei Tavares on the initial DB is about a season's worth of minutes from being a PL standard player, in reality he only sometimes plays for u23s. He could be genuinely that good and not getting opportunities due to other factors but it seems unlikely

@Welshace & @Geordieboy52 I bought Gvardiol on my Norwich save (granted it was the beta) and he didn't develop like I hoped he would.

I think he'd be a good championship player but he stagnated on my save and I sold him for £10 million +. 

If he's had stat boost from the update could be worth a punt. Also depends on the level/league you're in of course.

He has indeed had a boost; was good previously but is now *very* good.

I signed him for Bayer Leverkusen in FM19 when he was 16, not for the first team but his performances were excellent and had I played longer I am sure he would have made the step up. Highly rated in real life and appropriately in game in my opinion, and i would suggest well worth a punt.

12 for crossing in my game, his stats are mostly random
