He is one of the best all-around players but the only lacking is that he can’t sustain injuries. So be careful while using him against lower teams who tend to have lesser respect for rules.

Darren Fletcher
35 years old and still having 77 overall stats, Darren is a weapon that needs a trigger.

This former Manchester United player is a remarkable addition to the midfield and will never disappoint you.

Martin Olsson
Martin, a 31 years old young Swede has much potential left yet and you can pass pretty great seasons with him before his abilities start to decline. So perhaps it is better to grab the opportunity to have him added for free.

Tom Huddlestone
League One, as well as bottom half Championship sides, have already started queuing up to sign up Huddlestone.

He surely has got some skills and you shouldn’t be wasting the opportunity of getting him for free.

Jack Wilshere
Wilshere was once dubbed as the future of English football and who knows whose future he might enhances?

There is no doubt in Jack’s capabilities and he will stand firmly even against most of the top flight teams.

Donis Avdijaj
Donis is a pretty enthusiastic number 10 and striker. Though he hasn’t played to his full potentials for quite a time, he might still surprise in some matches and is a good addition for any balanced 3rd tier matches.


Alexandro Pato

Pablo De Blasis
De Blasis is an archetypal dogged winger and must be looking for glory. So it’s best to reckon the potential and turn his energy into your favors.

Bakary Sako
Sako used to be Wolves favorite and can still deliver great deal of advantage to lower league sides. He has a 15 Flair and that unpredictability might bring in some favorable results.

Ben Marshall
Marshal is a Flair injected player and if that’s what you need, he is the one you should opt for. He has the abilities to shoot from distance and long range free kicks which make him even more worthy.

Markel Susaeta
Markel is a tricky winger and has recently been terminated by Melbourne City. He surely is a man of talent and skill and signing him up for second tier or below will boost your matches.


Bichi – the beast, is an impressive 23 years old player and all he needs is being unleashed into the field. With a score of 78, Bicho is all you need to bag some goals for your team.

Wilfried Bony
Bony earned quite a name during the peak of his carrier. He is still 30 and you can still expect much from him. With an overall score of 77, Bony does make sure to reflect his significance in every match he plays.

Raffael has been recently terminated and hence available for free. He is a false nine and pretty devastating on the field. There is no excuse for you to miss this great opportunity!
