Hey guys, if you are managing a team with like 5 to 10 million budget, these are three players you should really look into.

They all play in the Dutch league, tim play for Groningen. He is a great clinical striker. The guy scores like 25+ per season and you can get him for like 3 to 5 million. After like two years he goes to like AC Milan or something. Great bargain! He and Bjorn are even listed in the top 50 players to watch on the bleacher report. Even his real stats are great in real life now. He is like 21 years old.

Bjorn is belgian like most wonderkids. He is another great clinical finisher and a super hard worker. Like a kuyt but who can score like dzeko. Great bargain like 3 million. He plays at N.E.C Go get him. I got him for leeds and sold him two years later to Barca for like 22 million. He has twelve goals in 17 games in real life now.

The last is Derk. Man this guy has a wicked left foot. He is in the dutch second division and is the best 1 million I ever spent. I bought him at leeds and till today I am in the premiership he is my starting left winger over the babels and downings. Great left foot, scores like crazy and is good at freekicks. Check them out!

Velminckx is great. I saw him playing for NEC on the dutch highlights, scored a hattrick and looked a decent player. Signed him for Rangers in FM after it and he was a total beast. :)

I know right. I was playing with leeds and I need a really decent striker. So I search the dutch league for the current highest goal scorers. I found tim matavz and bjorn. I signed bjorn cos he was cheaper and had great stats. The guy turned into a huge beast. The guys is bad ***. Now that he is at Barca, the guy is like the number one striker. He is also totally argument free. Like I was once trying out for fun and told him that I would sell him. Instead of getting angry he begs me to let him stay and tells me he will do anything but just don't sell me.

I'm in NEC right now, playing a 4-4-2 with Vleminckx and Jeroen Ketting (a fairly good striker who gives me alot of goals). Ketting is playing very well as a Poacher, but how should I play Vleminckx next to him? Now he's a complete forward and he isn't pulling it off like he should be I guess. Ratings of 6.8 is not that great..

What role would you play Matavz? I've got him for blackburn and been playing him as a poacher but he's struggled for form.

For me Matavz delivered best as a complete forward or as target man.

For Derk, but him as a left winger, he'll bag in goals.

Cheers nabster, I ended up selling him at the end of the season, don't think he was good enough really, signed Agbonlahor instead whose banging them in as a poacher.
