Defour. <3
He is a beast. Speaks basic English too. Man U have been looking at him IRL for a reason.

McArthur is good
Witsel is better
Poli the best!

Defour, dirt cheap with great mental stats, and if you teach him the ppm play killer balls, he is immense

ricardo montolivo - got him offered to me for about £6m in 2nd season, gets a few goals and plenty of assists, one of my best buys in my 1st liverpool save.

cheap but good is tom cairney but be quick as chelsea are on the sniff

Hm. Why not Arevalo Ríos? He's pretty good, more a poor man's Mascherano when you look at his stats. Quite successful for me as a DLP.

Arturo Vidal was amazing for me and only cost me £6 million. Has great mental and technical stats :)

If you can sign them. (doubtful for Villa)

Maurles (Sp?) Liverpool
Xabi Alonso

Lucas is alright at it.
Arturo Vidal is great
and so is Defour

Poli. Joel's been getting quite some use out of him. Of course, Stiliyan Petrov's pretty good at it himself.
