“This guide is ideal for those who are playing as a lower division team in League One or League Two, or any other cash-strapped club”…………. Tim Cahill (80), Everton – £11m/12m Laurent Koscielny (78), Arsenal – £9m I guessed you missed your own point “Cash strapped”. Im playing as Torquay United (League 2 for the challenge) and wont ever get a player for over 2mil until im atleast Championship. Poor guide. Hardly helps. Listing people at 2mil plus is ludacris in addition to wages! Try posting people who cost 500k or less with 60+ ratings who can help you get… Read more »

I agree with Jay. You would never be able to sign half those players on wages alone. I find the best way to raise money is by getting free transfers then selling them. Set your transfer ratio budget to 100% wages and sign as many higher rated players on a free as possible. Use them for a season (They will develop and increase value.) Sell them as soon as possible. You’ll only be making a profit (I got 8mil for Gibbs.) That helped to build a challenging team of youth players until i finally got to the Premier League. After… Read more »

If you´re looking for players that shine in one season, why not the older one´s? or why not loans? you can easily get players like coutinho or pedro leon in lower teams like academica or fc koln like i did! always pay attention for free players,at the first day of transfers. always some nice one´s. old new! try gianichetti, nice fw.

Two players I have found useful are:
J.Olave from real salt lake (MLS)
Costs £75,000 and has the strength ability
De vires from Swansea (Championship)
Also costs £75,000, and is a 71 gk, good for a sub keeper or first team if your in league 1

there is plenty more then on this list i suggest getting very specific with the search engine. one of my go to players are these Hengebert from Auxerre i believe he is a 77 RB for around 4 mill. He is easy to sign at any level and i know that he can easily reach a 78 overall. Auxerre is also a good club to buy players from they have i believe three that are underpriced. Hyppia from Leverkusin a CB he is really old and very difficult to sign but his transfer fee is 50 thousand and his overall… Read more »
