    Those screens are from two different games, right? He's totally random, so in your Bayern game he could have started really well.

    Maybe we can do a random players thread in the future. Always good to look out for those, they could turn into the brightest gems :p

    Thomasz Sokolowski
    Nationality: Norweigian (Polish 2nd)
    Club: Lyn Oslo
    Age: 19
    Position: AM C
    Price: around 1.5 mil?
    Version: 5.0.2
    DB: large
    Comments: fantastic young talent. At age 19/20, he has every single attribute above 10 except for one (long throws?). Good playmaker and can score too, perfect signing for an average standard team like 1860 Munchen or Leceister City.

    Started playing FM again, for the first time in about a year. :ewan:

    NAME: Will Johnson
    POSITION: Striker
    AGE: 19
    NATIONALITY: USA
    VALUE: £10,000
    VERSION: 5.0.2
    DATABASE SIZE: Large
    Comment: I'm with Altrincham (Coca Cola Conference). With a bit of luck I managed to persuade Blackburn Rovers with an offer of £10,000. Now his value has sky-rocketed to £140,000. 19 goals in 27 starts. He missed the remaining two months of the season through injury but i managed to survive relegation, despite being bottom for most of the campaign. His value has shot up again to £275,000. I'd consider selling him for that, seeing as the budget at Altrincham is around £4-10k a season.

    5-9 is a normal range of stats for the Conference, anything over is just awesome :o

    WTF? Will Johnson is Canadian!

    At least there is a striker on the Canadian U21 NT that played in Netherlands named Will Johnson, I assume it's him.

    Don't assume. Of the current uXX squads, maybe 60% of the players is actually in the game. And most major nations have 100% or close. Quite possible that Canadian Will Johnson (who plays for Chicago Fire since February 17th, coming from Sockers FC Chicago) isn't even in the game.

    NAME: Gervasio Braga
    POSITION: Striker
    AGE: 20
    CLUB: Boavista
    NATIONALITY: Portuguese
    VALUE: £22,000
    VERSION: 5.0.0
    DATABASE SIZE: Normal

    COMMENTS: Still only 20 and an excellent bargain buy at £22,000. Works best as a support striker and plays some great through balls as well as scoring some good goals. Bought in January (first season) and worth £3,000,000 by October of the same year. Has a fairly poor average rating on the screenie due to my whole team going through a crap patch at present.

    Name: Yaniv Katan
    Nationality: Israel
    Age: 24 (23 at the beginning of game?)
    Positioin: F RLC
    Version: any, I think
    Price: below 500k
    Comment: has pace and acceleration of 15, decent technical skills above 10 all around, good skillful wing/forward. Macabi Haifa seems to need money so you can get him cheap for around 400-500k, and he will be well worth over 8 mil in a season. Also I had no trouble getting him a work permit for EPL. Bargain for a solid player.
