try getting bebe from man utd on loan. He always seems to go to Championship clubs at the beginning of the game and he's pretty good

Yep definitely Leigh Griffiths.. he's amazing. I'd suggest loans from the 'big four', picking their best reserves e.g Bebe, McEachran..

Some beastly loans can get you out of that league with ease.

Dedryk Boyata - He is an absolute monster of a human. For me he scored 9 goals as a CB and helped keep a load of clean sheets.

Frederico Macheda - Give him the chance and he will score. He scored 27 league goals for me. (Wont be able to get him with the Jan update though)

Bebe - A good solid winger and always gets a decent rating.

Jamie O'Hara - Get him while you can! Wolves, West Ham and Blackpool all went for him early doors but I managed to get him in. He will run the midfield for you without picking up many yellows or injuries.

Kyle Walker - Cracking RB who loves to attack. His value goes up loads though so prepare to spend big if you want to keep him.

Yeah , he seems to work best for most people playing as a Poacher.

I don't know if you have a big centre forward to partner him but he plays well collecting knock-downs/flick ons etc.

If your playing as Forest, play Earnshaw as a target man with supply as run on to ball, he will rip up the league with his pace.

I get free agents like Michael Ball and Danny Shitu in Defence and you could also try to get Bernard Mendy as a winger
