Best Players for Lower Leagues in Football Manager 2008

Searching best cheap players for FM 2013? Here is my advanced list of good FM 2013 players containing more than 280 bargains.


I was asked by one of you, my dear readers, to make exploration about cheap player who can be bought to lower league teams. For instance, Coca-Cola Championship and League 1 players. It had taken several days to do that. And I want to represent you its results below:

Fabien Barthez

36 years. Famous eccentric French goalkeeper.

36 years. Famous eccentric French goalkeeper. Available from free transfer! Must be signed if you do not have good keeper at the start. But be aware of from other clubs being concurrent to sign this legendary goalkeeper.

Marius Niculae

26 yeas. Inverness CT. $425K. Brilliant Romanian striker.

26 yeas. Inverness CT. $425K. Brilliant Romanian striker. I praised him in my blog many times. Marius is the certain leader of my Southampton in Premier League!

Benoit Leroy

24 years. Chamois Niortas. $120K. AMLC/FC.

24 years. Chamois Niortas. $120K. AMLC/FC.  Rather versatile player who can perform as attacking midfielder and forward. I use him also in my Southampton. And Leroy is one of the best and reliable players in the team.


18 years. Braga. Very young and cheap guy from Portugal

18 years. Braga. Very young and cheap guy from Portugal. He is a defensive midfielder (DMC). Stelvio costs only $16K! Must be bought!


Florian Heller

25 years. Aue. WB/MR. German right flank player. Can perform as either midfielder or defender very well for your, for example, Coca-Cola Championship team. He can be bought easily because he is from German Second Division.
