Who has been your most successful signing & why?

I've had a couple, welly nem never fails to disappoint obviously.
But Pohjanpalo was impressive for my Crewe save, he scored 35 in the first season, I signed him for 140k.

Gino Peruzzi

Definitely Gino Peruzzi! Bought him three times on my long term save. Paid £6m for Newcastle in 2013, £24m to take him to Arsenal in 2015 and £34m when i moved to Barcelona in 2017. Best full back ive ever signed in FM years!

I have a pic of him from his Newcastle days ive posted previously:

Obviously a few regens but Marco Capuano for my Newcastle save. Most consistent player ever. Injury free season after season too.

William Ekong Dutch CB from Tottenham ... Got him for my Hebburn Town save in the Northern Premier League on a Amateur contract ... Man Of The Match and 8.0 ratings every match.

Quite a few though.

Agree with Destro and Fierro ... Lethal strike force , but how did you manage to get Fierro for that price! they always wont go below 10m for me

I signed him in the Championship for Wolves in my first season and he was immense. He struggles to get in my team now though with Fierro and Destro in front of him and Ademilson on his way in January. Great sub though as he always makes an impact.

I can't remember what I offered, he was only worth a couple of hundred grand at the time midway through the first season. They countered with £7.25m and I snapped their hand off. 19 years old and 18 goals in his first Premier League season so far and we're only in December, including two hat tricks.

You got lucky! I had to pay 13.25 and 12.5 in my current saves!

Signed Fredrico Laurito (free transfer) for my AFC Wimbledon side. Scored 30-40 goals consistently and was the main reason for my three consecutive promotions.

Also signed Ciaran Clark (£4 mill) to QPR and he was really solid at centre back. Voted player of the year by the fans three seasons in a row.

Haven't had any "stand out signings" on FM13. All FM's together though, it was Leandro Damiao.

Wellington Nem. Has a Buyout Clause of £3.5million at the start and goes on to become one of the best and most valuable left wingers in the game.

I've just signed fierro on loan for the season in the second season in the championship with option to sign him at the end of the season for £2.5m.

I'm paying all his wages & £50k a month whilst he is on loan. However he hasn't found his feet yet. 5 games in, 1 goal.
