I thought it was all random in career mode?
On my west ham game I signed Michael owen for 2mil and fegouli (Valencia) for 4m, sorry for the spelling.
Them two in the championship amazing
I sent a scout out for the shortest time for man united to Argentina and got a report back after 4 weeks and he came back with 3 players but was 16 year old cb with a rating of 75 with a potential of 91 so I snapped him up for £25,000 with a weekly wage of £500 BARGAIN.
I've just finished the first Transfer Window of the first Season as Player Manager of Blackburn, so here are a few I found:
John Smith - GK - Free Transfer - Attribute Rating 77:
After I Signed him he was Valued at around £2,300,000 and was much better than my 2nd Choice Keeper. If you've messed around in the Arena, John Smith is likely to be the Goalkeeper you were playing against. He has a very distictive look much like the famous Rene Higuita shown in the Video below.
Markus Henriksen - CM - Rosenborg - Attrubute Rating 75:
A 19 Year Old Physical Midfielder who was valued at around £7,500,000. I was considering Signing him before the Transfer Window closed but his Overall Rating increased to 76 and his price susequently increased to £10,500,000.
Jordan Ayew - ST/RW/LW - Marseille - Attribute Rating 75:
Another 19 Year Old with seemingly endless potential. His amazing Pace will have troubled many Players of the FIFA 12 Demo and he is also Left Footed.
It would be great if more of the FIFA 12 Forum Users could contribute to this Thread. It has so far received over a thousand views but very few people are Posting their bargain Players for the rest of the Community to consider.
Picked up Theo Walcott (albeit in a crappy formation) for 700 coins last night.
Put him straight up for sale, and he went for 18,000 coins :woop:
Oops. Wrong thread :o
Good Buys for Championship Clubs.
I have started in my season of career mode with Derby County, business wise i had a very successful window. I signed players who were either past there peak and therefore relatively cheap, or young players who havnt reached their potential yet, as a result of being Derby County were a little on the skint side.
Anyways i bought -
Experienced (Past Peak)
- Andrew Johnson
- Micheal Owen
- Danny Murphy
- Liam Ridgewell
- Stephen Ward
Along with a few upcoming talents (Pre peak)
- Ross Barkley
- Jake Livermore
- Jack Robinson (Loan)
These are the players who i found to be good value for money, especially the older ones to which are far easier to bargain for and get for a better price.
I've now finished the first Season with Blackburn in Player Manager Career Mode so here's the updated Attribute Growth of some of my young Players:
David Hoilett, +4, From 76 to 80, 1st Team, Whole Season
Jordan Ayew, +4, From 75 to 79 (Marseille), 1st Team, Whole Season
Chris Samba, +2, From 79 to 81, 1st Team, Whole Season
Radoslav Petrovic, +2, From 73 to 75, 2nd Team, Whole Season
Jordan Slew, +2, From 61 to 63, 2nd Team, Whole Season
Adam Henley, +2, From 64 to 66, 2nd Team, Whole Season
Sami Khedira, +2, From 81 to 83 (Real Madrid), 1st Team, Whole Season
Bjorn Bergmann Sigurdarson, +2, From 74 to 76 (Lillestrom), 1st Team, Whole Season
Serge Aurier, +2, From 64 to 66 (RC Lens), 2nd Team, Whole Season
Ignasi Miquel, +2, From 63 to 65 (Arsenal), 2nd Team, Whole Season
Leandro Bittencourt, +2, From 64 to 66 (FC Energie Cottbus), 2nd Team, 12 Appearences
Markus Henriksen who I've previously mentioned is now rated at 80, thats +5 over the Season and he's now worth £18,000,000.
Found this list, it helped me out
Robert Snodgrass can be bought for 3 million in the first season rated 73 and after 1 and a half years was rated 81 for me.
Wrong thread and a double post. Oh the joys.
I just finished my Player Manager Game with Blackburn after playing the Champions League Final Vs Barcelona:
See Video Below:
I've now started a West Ham Game where I've put everyone up for Sale on the first Day to try and buy loads of Players with great potential (of 80+), as SemperVerus posted in Post #10.
I've already sold Carlton Cole and Noble and bought the previosuly mentioned Markus Henriksen for £9,610,000 who in my last Career Mode improved by +5 in the first Season (75 to 80) and was then valued at £18,000,000. Not bad when the Database shows that he has the potential to reach an 85 Rating!
I've just finished the first Transfer Window of a new Career Mode with West Ham as previously mentioned, trying to sell everyone to buy Players with big potential.
Here's my new West Ham Team:
GK - Smithies - 66 - Huddersfield - £1,800,000 - Potential = 82 (+16)
RB - De Vrij - 69 - Feyenoord - £3,400,000 - Potential = 83 (+14)
LB - Daprela - 67 - Brescia - £2,210,000 - Potential = 83 (+16)
CB - Caldirola - 69 - Inter Milan - £3,260,000 - Potential = 85 (+16)
CB - Benedetti - 64 - Gubbio - £6,100,000 - Potential = 86 (+22)
RM - Henriksen - 75 - Rosenborg - £9,610,000 - Potential = 85 (+10)
LM - Redmond - 64 - Birmingham - £1,910,000 - Potential = 81 (+17)
CM - Fernando - 70 - Gremio - On Loan (Future Fee Agreed Of £5,310,000) - Potential = 87 (+17)
CM - Signorelli - 57 - Empoli - £1,750,000 - Potential = 83 (+26)
ST - Virtual Pro
ST - Leandro - 71 - Gremio - £6,610,000 - Potential = 84 (+13)
Some of them weren’t my first choice of Players to sign but so many of the Players who are listed on the FIFA 12 Database of having Potential of +15 or more had only just joined the Club they were at so it was impossible to purchase them.
Hopefully, given plenty of first Team Football, playing well and winning Games most of them will reach close to their maximum potential within a couple of Seasons and then I will be looking at some very high valued Players which I can sell on to buy more well known Players. Ideally I would like to bring Tevez and possibly Mascherano back to West Ham at the start of Season 3 if possible, we’ll see!
I signed a 17 year old Canadian boy for 1.000 a week. When I signed him he was 70. Now he's 74, on about 3/4 of the season.
Lucas Piazon, can be easily signed via a season long loan, he is rated 65 and his potential is 85 not only that he can perform all 4 star skill moves, not only that but his Stamina is 93 which means he can pretty much play every single match in a row and a whole match without tiring, he is a top class goalscorer and can grow into the future messi.
I picked up Jordan Ayew as well. 3rd season in, he's an integral bench player for my team and is up to an 80 overall. I'm playing as Liverpool and some of these other teams pull some Godfather-esque transfer deals for me. i.e. Deals I can't refuse. Sold Glen Johnson, Skrtel, Agger, & Leiva all for WAY more than they were valued at.
I also signed the De Vrij & Henrickson that Boomerang Cat had mentioned. Both players are in the lower 80's. I also signed Minuain (sp?) from Atletico Bilbao (I think). He's a 19 yr old left winger who is a 79.
My scouts must really suck ass, because the best i've gotten in my 3 years is a 68 CB and 2 66 RM's.
I play as Newcastle. In Season 1 I bought:
James Milner - Man C - CM - 10m
Michael Owen - Man U - ST - 2m (excellent buy)
Phillippe Coutinho - Inter - CAM - Season Loan (seriously get him, he's awesome)
Aaron Ramsey - Arsenal - CAM - Season Loan
Van der Wiel - Ajax - RB - 2m (I think, excellent fast defender)
Thiago - Barcelona - CM - Season Loan
John Smith - GK - Free Agent
2nd season I've bought:
Fredy Guarin - Porto - CAM - 5m
Cicero - Sao Paulo - CAM - 5m
Saviola - Benfica - ST - 14m (fantastic striker)
Honda - CSKA Moscow - CM - 24m (best player i've bought)
Yoon Bit Ga Ram - Gyeongnam FC - CM - 1m (potential player)
Bruno Alves - Zenit Saint Petersburg - CB - 12m
Phillippe Coutinho - Inter - CAM - Season Loan (again)
On west ham career mode I signed
- Jack Robinson-Liverpool-LB.
- Connor Coady-Liverpool-CDM (On Loan)
- Ravel Morrison-Man Utd-CAM (On Loan)
- Terence Kongolo-Feynoord-CB
In summer when promoted looking to sign
- Lucas Piazon-Sao Paulo-CAM
- Jordan Ayew-Marseille-ST
- Nathan Redmond-Birmingham-LM
- Danny Rose-Tottenham-LM
+ Centre Back about 60-70 rating
Mario gotze 84 £24 million but if this is realistic it would be. Considering jack wilkshire is 82 and 21 years old while gotze is 84 and only 19 years old. Also the fact that wilkshire would sell for more than £24 million and he's older and not as highly rated as gotze that's why it's a bargain.
Aaron Ramsey :D
I can now Update my previous post of my first Season as Manager of West Ham in Career Mode where I sold the whole Squad to sign some of the best FIFA 12 young players, with potential of 80+ that were available.
GK - Smithies - 66 - Huddersfield - £1,800,000 - Potential = 82 (+16) - End Of Season = 70 (+4) - Value £3,000,000
RB - De Vrij - 69 - Feyenoord - £3,400,000 - Potential = 83 (+14) - End Of Season = 72 (+3) - Value £6,000,000
LB - Daprela - 67 - Brescia - £2,210,000 - Potential = 83 (+16) - End Of Season = 72 (+5) - Value £6,500,000
CB - Caldirola - 69 - Inter Milan - £3,260,000 - Potential = 85 (+16) - End Of Season = 75 (+6) - Value £7,500,000
CB - Benedetti - 64 - Gubbio - £6,100,000 - Potential = 86 (+22) - End Of Season = 69 (+5) - Value £9,000,000
RM - Henriksen - 75 - Rosenborg - £9,610,000 - Potential = 85 (+10) - End Of Season = 79 (+4) - Value £15,500,000
LM - Redmond - 64 - Birmingham - £1,910,000 - Potential = 81 (+17) - End Of Season = 70 (+6) - Value £4,500,000
CM - Fernando - 70 - Gremio - On Loan (Future Fee Agreed Of £5,310,000) - Potential = 87 (+17) - End Of Season = 73 (+3) - Value £7,000,000
CM - Signorelli - 57 - Empoli - £1,750,000 - Potential = 83 (+26) - End Of Season = 61 (+4) - Value £2,100,000
ST - Virtual Pro
ST - Leandro - 71 - Gremio - £6,610,000 - Potential = 84 (+13) - End Of Season = 74 (+3) - Value £9,500,000
These Attribute Growth results were gained by playing on World Class Difficulty and by winning every Match, including Cup Games.
I feel a little disappointed by some of the Players lack of growth, like De Vrij, Fernando and Signorelli given their potential but I'll wait to see what Transfer Budgets I'll recieve when I advance the Game into the next Season before deciding whether to replace them or not.
Signed Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain for Chelsea for about £8m over his value
But what a signing he's turning out to be, gone from 68/69 rating to 71 in a short space of time, playing him on the right of a 433 that looks like:
AOC - Torres - Shaqiri
The wingers (who I signed in summer window) are actually the joint top scorers in the league ahead of Torres
Adam Lallana, who is part of my cup/European side/team, is proving to be a quality signing, rated 77 after about 10 cup games.
gabriel hauche - racing club potential 80 £2.2mil

I'm really pleased how the Players are still growing so far throughout Season Two. The combined Value of just my starting 11 is currently over £100,000,000 so that not bad for a Club who started out in the Championship last Season.
May mahlangu. Complete and utter beast of a midfielder. Rated a 77 played over a season and no growth but still much better than most at 22 years old. All first page stats except strength are in the 90+ range.
Here’s the latest Update to my experimental West Ham Career Mode, which is a Team made up of High Potential young Players after I Sold my entire original Squad.
High Potential Players Growth Update (End Of Season 2)
GK - Smithies - Growth During Season Two = (+4) 74 - Value £4,800,000
RB - Vitual Pro
LB - Daprela - Growth During Season Two = (+4) 76 - Value £8,500,000

Overall, I’m very pleased with the total Growth from all of the Players during Season 2. The total value of these 10 Players combined, without My Virtual Pro, is £142,800,000, which is a lot more than the original fees that I paid for them.
Here’s my Video of the Europa League Final from Season 2 in my Career Mode, West Ham Vs Marseille.

Cannot remember my "Outs" but from what i do remember, i had a lot of crazy offers come in for the goalkeepers on my team and Koscelny and Chamack so i let them go, this is why i could afford all these new players, plus i had about 60m i think roughly starting budget, but i have the board on Amatuer, playing CPU on Professional
I will update this with their end of season ratings, plus any transfers in January etc.
