Is it just me or are there prominent players from previous versions that don't seem to be on fm11 eg- dagoberto, lulinha

or are they just hiding from me?

they fizzle out most of the time :) look at....

Bogdan Stancu
Mika Aaritola
Marquinhos (especially)
Gabriel Torje
Freddy Adu
the list goes on and on....

this happens as these players do not perform in real life...

Dagoberto is still very good though, dont write him off...
Lulinha disappeared after Fm07 or Fm08

yeah i suppose, just wondered if they were lurking in the lower leagues somewhere. Injuries IRL can end careers too i guess
where's dagoberto these days?

he still plays for Sao Paulo, he is more of an Attacking mid now, left hand side, still very good! was thinking of getting him for my Freiburg save... (Sao Paulo got relegated in the 1st season :p)

Freddy has gone to Aris (or something, small Greek team on loan) etc etc...

its relative and realistic as for eg: a bunch of Wonderkids come through, like Robinho/Kaka/Messi/Tevez/Mascherano etc etc of Cm3 and Cm4 (and later of course) etc, there were more than that that had potential, just a handful of them have actually made it in real life...

they are all still around, Stancu is at Galatasaray, Torje is at Dinamo, Marquinhos is still at Palmeiras, their PA's and CA's have been dropped and changed drastically...

Jean Carlos Chera - Yes, the internet phenomenon ;)

Think he's too young at the moment to be on the game but will be on next years version. Think he's 14 going on 15.

Adu is still in benfica. got loaned to belenenses previous year. You can still find him at the reserves.

Lulinha is playing for Olhanense IRL, dont quite know if he is there on fm.

Daniel Fredheim Holm just signed for Rosenborg, after a completely failed stay at Aalborg in Denmark. He hardly played a game after leaving Vaalerenga due to injuries.
