Wonderkids 6 years ago: FM 09 => FM 15


Hello guys,

This year became the first one when I decided not to create any player lists at True Football Manager blog. It's easy to explain: I want to focus on playing FM 2015 as much as possible. Moreover, there are many different sites like FM Scout creating such list for those who like to have easy hints about young gem footballers.

Despite that I couldn't miss looking onto wonderkids in the new Football Manager at all. That's why this time I implemented an idea I had always in mind:

  1. Take the old wonderkid list blog post (FM 2009)
  2. Visit profile of every player there.
  3. Try to review how player was successful during the timespan.

I invented Success Rate attribute for this blog update to show up my personal relation to progress of every FM 2009 wonderkid. 100% of Success Rate stands for complete success and world star status. Low values closer to 0% mean absolute failure in career and development.

Now enjoy! :-)
