Bargains, Star Players, Tactics and the Meta game

Hi all,

I'm starting this threat to give something back to the community. Learned so much from all of you guys, i just hope you find this useful.

So let's start with some bargains/ players i've signed over my careers that are imo great stars for good prices or just people to keep an eye on.

GK :

- Augusto Batalla - you can get him from an argentinian club for ~3M5a42774549bab_AugustoBataglla.thumb.png.69b18a53598e792ec43c87b1f88aef78.png

Defenders :

- Aaron - wonderkid DL/WBL - Just scout him before, he can have some bad hidden stats in some saves. Expensive at the start of game, bought him for ~12M in 2nd season. - from Espanyolaaron.thumb.png.2e6c275f9bb137817da7f7a33be1d214.png

- Dallot - Wonderkid DR/WBR - Same as aaron, sometimes he can be bad. If you have the money , get Passlack from Dortmund

- Bernardo - DR/WBR - from RBL, he is a good , solid player

- Spinazzola - DR/DL - very solid, can only be bought in 2nd season - from juventus. He can be unsettled

- J . Silva - great DL , been in FM for years. A good overall player,  not the best though.

- Rogerio Caio - BPD - A beast - you can get him for ~4M5a4277bd59e11_RodrigoCaio.thumb.png.b08011b7cebb71ce3057e9373442c287.png

- Yerri Mina - CD - Beast - scores a few goals as well, can be expensive some times ~8M5a4277e79a608_YerriMina.thumb.png.7c5d6f0b3c3619670649fe55ac393c3c.png

- De Ligt - BPD - I've been lucky, nobody bought him for 2 seasons. I got him for 5M and now he is one of the best in the world

- I Kanote - CD - Good player, quite young. I didn't get him over 7-ish rating. 

- k. Ajer - BPD - Celtic - you can get him <10M if he gets unsettled. Great bargain in some saves. Very good player overall.

- T. Kehrer - BPD - Schalke ( germany) - Got him for 3M a few seasons in. World class defender

- Lucas Martinez QUarta - CD - some argentinian club. For me, didn't work. He looks very good stat-wise , but didn't perform for me. Cheap bargain though.

- Kenny Tete - Good DR , not good as a wing back. You can get him for 12M , resale value 30m

- Lorenzo Dickman - funny name , solid DR , very cheap ~3M


Middlefield : 

Mentions , you probably already know these top class players but they deserve to be re-written : Arthur , Wendel, Luan.5a4277a8d7a85_luanbestEUplayer.thumb.png.86bc2ee746bf9008d09e7ce85b8673f7.png

- Barco - 18 yrs, WORLD class player - independiente arg, around ~5m

- Reynoso - top class player , best - buy bargain AMC - 3.2M

- Pavon - AMRL - Bought for 3.2M , sold 6 months later for 120M

- Gustavo Scarpa - AMRL , Great Bargain, 3.2M5a4277808125a_GustavoScarpa.thumb.png.8837d61ede518bb21da54ba1973959e5.png

- Dudu - AMRLC - great talent, bought for ~4M, sold for 20M. Think he can be very good , he didn't get alot of apps in my squad.

- Tatsuya Ito - AML - retrained him to be AMC. 3M at start, got him very cheap, grew into a world class player. Just take a look5a4277d6526cd_TatsuIto.thumb.png.8a3fc429de3c63ab72699ce52779ad5c.png

 - B. Traore , Malcom , Berardi , Le Faso - Great players to buy. Watch out for le faso, he can have some bad hidden stats, scout them before. World stars, did great for my team 

- Great Bargains : Cigerci , Saunders, Gillet , Burnic, Besic

- Claudio Gomes - Expensive DMC - PSG - Get him at start for ~15M . Turns out to be good, but he takes ALOT of time to develop. Not worth it tbh.

- Zakaria - BWM - Great player, mentioned him because you can get him sometimes for <30M. If you can, do not hesitate!

- Frenkie De Jong - Solid AP-MC . Not expensive, he usually doesn't get much play time and he gets sad and i snapped him for about 5M

- Gaston Pereiro - AMC - PSV. Get him unsettled, you can have a superstar for 10M

- Gbamin - DMC - some german club - Nothing but good words for this guy. Solid and consistent performer. Sometimes got a 8 rating as DMC.

- Onyekuru - Star player, scout him before, he has enigmatic trait sometimes.

- Mahlambi - super cheap RSA - AMR ( IF ). Sold him for big profit.Mahlambi.thumb.png.147c16003409241349f3102c5fe2d59a.png

- Santiago Caseres - DM/DLP- some argentinian club - top class, takes around 2 sez for him to develop but unlike Gomes, this guy is worth the wait.5a4277c836c6a_SantiagoCaseres.thumb.png.b8a6faf7c21786134a30c16904aaa9eb.png


- Victor Gyokeres - SWE/HUN - solid player, you can get him for about ~1M5a4277e0b0c0e_VictorGyokeres.thumb.png.c5fc674d7b992c30c935c0f7baea19a3.png

- Driussi - he gets overlooked. bought him for 30M, he got most goals in Serie A ( as genoa ) , ended up valueing ~70M. 

- Ezequel Rascaldani - Superb bargain. He's very hard to find but you can get him for <1M5a42776b9fb95_EzeRasqaldani.thumb.png.db52c25edfc0adce5824c1db36e62c01.png

- L Martinez : some argentinian club. World class striker. ~10M

- S. Abdullahi - Braunschweig - I think he should be around ~140-150 PA as he turns out to be very solid striker. Got him for 1.5M~ , sold for ~20M.5a4277c4a92c7_SAbdulahi.thumb.png.b3dbfbb83476dfd26c2686888f524fff.png

As a general note, to find all these players, you have to load england, germany , italy and portugal. ( that's what i've done anyway). Scout before buying! Some players have hidden atributes.

Now for tactics, i like using 4231. Before the update, i had my AMR / AML as IF . Luan, Pavon, berardi, onyekuru, gustavo scarpa, etc. They were scoring minimum 20 / season. ( that's minimum 40 goals from the wingers alone. After the update, i've found that Luan ( my award winning player ) was scoring less and less. I believe that they did something and i feel like IF are very greedy and get low ammount of goals. So using a 4-3-2-1 ( 3 MC ) with wingers and an AF is getting me results now.

I've used Galatasaray as my first save, i won the league every time, cups , and champions league in the 3rd season

With genoa - won the league in my first season + italy cup. 2nd season won everything internally + ch league so i lost motivation to play with them.

Both careers are done by NOT using sugar daddy. 

Also, a tip for regens. Watch out for an uruguay striker after first season and a MLC brazilian. They are beasts and you can get them <1M.5a4277b62a21b_NicoArrambari.thumb.png.bc0f648bd50eab537733a96a4e4e6dfb.png5a4277c10da70_rodrigodossantosMLCregen.thumb.png.0cdf7ddfa96a69c26ef55d8c852ecc2c.png

I think they are Forlan and Ze Roberto regen ( not sure, please confirm).


Also, as a final note, i've uploaded photos for every player in my list from my saves. I'm not sure you can see them , please let me know. I've only added a few photos in my post. 


I know it's long, hope it's worth the read. 


Cheers guys !

I am SUPER happy that you appreciate and i could help out as many of you did. I'm thinking of making an article about tactics as well. More in-depth. Would you guys be interested in that as well?

Update on bargains :

- ITO - the japaneese AMRLC can be signed on free in the first winter transfer

- Goretzka - i think this is now commong knowledge - but if you're lucky ( if he isn't transferred in the summer) you can get him on free in the next season

- D. Berardi is also available free in the 3rd season. So is aubameyang ( not really free, but you can sell him at age 30 for 7M~ or so ).

For me, it's Benjamin Henrichs every single time. Has 20s all over the place after a few seasons. You can retrain him to play pretty much wherever too. Ridiculously versatile.
