NAME Nicky Butt
POSITION DMC
AGE 29
NATIONALITY English
CLUB Newcastle
VALUE 4 mil
VERSION Full Game (and Demo)
COMMENTS Not really a "find", but for 4 mil you get one of the best defensive/holding midfielders in the world. 19 tackling, 17 marking, 16 passing, mental stats are insane (3 20's, 2 19's, bunch of 18's). His form is usually 8-7-8-9-9 in Newcastle. If you dont have the $$$ I'm sure you can work out a monthly installment plan for him. He provides excellent cover for your weak back four. Only obstacle could be the wage... 30-50k euros.

COMMENTS I just had an offer of 65k accepted. Nice stats for his age, 17 passing 16 tackling 17 influence 17 strength. Other stats are crappy but wage is only 375 euros per week at Ajax's reserves (H)

I bought this guy, and he is really great. I sub him on at half time and play him as sweeper. He is a really good buy :)

Vanden Borre sometimes can have settling problems.. emphasis on sometimes.. so watch out for that. My guess is that in some people's game his adaptability is low perhaps.

Yup I bought him twice.Both with spanish clubs- Real Madrid and Mallorca.With Real Madrid he is on the B team and complains about settling alot and misses trainning.With Mallorca I play him in every game for my first team and its not so bad.He missed trainning once and also complained about settling just once.

I ought him for Arsenal as cover for De Jong. He's class there. I'm training him on the left side so he'd be super useful.

CLUB Juventus
VALUE (that they will sell at) 900k €

COMMENTS Bargain! Good defender, good stats for marking, tackling, heading and pretty good physicalstats. He wants to leave Juve, Juve wants him to leave, so it's easy to get him. A lot of other teams want him though.
