    You can laugh all you want. Football manager is an accurate barometer of ability and has correctly predicted the trajectory of the careers of numerous players.

    Fifa, I would lend absolutely no credibility to whatsoever when trying to gauge the ability of relatively unknown players.

    I actually agree with this.

    Yes FM will * up every now and then and make some youngster into the next Messi and in real life he ends up *, but for the amount of players in their database FM is incredibly accurate.

    Everton under Moyes actually paid SI (football manager devs) to be the first team to get a look at their footballer database each year.

    Gut feelings are often just as reliable as anything you see reported. I get a good vibe from this one.

    Also agree, I still play FA Prem Man 2002 for the PC (last edition before they moved to the new FM engine), the game had so many correct predictions it was frightening. Their research team must have been made up of scouts etc.

    Saying that, it did have Michael Ball turning into one of the best LB's in the game :56:

    Can't help but agree. If this one goes over the line, that's £4m-£5m spent already with no one being sold. Must say well done to the board.

    Hope these recruits are given time and I hope they settle in well.

    We need a left winger and cover for izzy potentially. Anyone who leaves now will need to be replaced.

    Hopefully this one is confirmed tomorrow.

    I dont think we will need a replacement for Wanyama when he leaves. We have more than enough cover in center mid.

    Its a fact that the fm guys research the players through the clubs and as with normal life sometimes players just don't fulfill their potential
