Recommended Strikers


Warren McBean
ST - 22 - Sutton Utd - Around 100K - English
A great goalscorer for Blue Square and lower and possibly League 2. His lethal pace penatrated defences time and time again for me in the lower leagues. Was joint top scorer in Blue Square South with 22 goals.

Michael Owen
ST - 27 - Newcastle - 10.5m - English
A goal machine!!! I'm playing him with Torres and they both score important goals.

Ben Sahar
Forward - 18 - Chelsea (on loan at QPR) - Around 1m - Isreali
Goal machine for my QPR team.

Carlos Vela
AM/FC - 18 - Arsenal (on loan at Osasuna) - 10m - Mexican
Becomes one of the best players in the game. Get him early and his price will sky rocket.

Ronaldo
ST - 32 - Out of Contract - £Free - Brazilian
Can still do an honest job for a team of say, Porto's calibur. Land him on a free in the new update, wage demands will however be a little high.

Kevin Doyle
ST - 23 - Reading - 7.5m - Irish
Great for mid table/uefa cup teams.

Nicklas Bendtner
ST - 19 - Arsenal - Around 10m - Danish
Sent him on loan to Marseille in the first season, scored 21 goals in 27 appearances for them, described as wonderkid. Could make an amazing partnership with Vela.

Nicolas Anelka
ST - 28 - Bolton - 10-12m - French
He is really quick and every time he gets a sniff at goal he scores.

Filip Hovland
AML/ST - 18 - N/A- 20k - Finnish
A fantastic young player who will thrive in leagues 1 and below.

Jefferson Farfan
AM RL/ST - 22 - PSV- 6m - Peruvian
Can play as a striker but IMO plays a better as winger, will score loads and assist just as much, and at a bargain of 6m, you cant go wrong.

Jeremy Menez
AM RCL/ST - 20 - Monaco - 7m + 50% - French
Definitely one of the best prospects IMO, had him for a short time on my Pompey game, scored heapes up front.

Vagner Love
ST - 23 - CSKA - 7.5m - Brazilian
Fantastic centre forward, he scores for fun. He's fast/composed/scores a lot of long range scorchers.

Klaas-Jan Huntelaar
CF - 24 - Ajax - Valued at 4.5m - Dutch
Very good centre forward, with the right striking partner, he can easily become the most prolific goalscorer in Europe.

Charles-Andre Doudin
CF - 21 - La-Chaux-de-Fonds - 200k - Swiss
Great striker for lower league management and may even be good enough for the Premiership.

Goran Pandev
CF - 23 - Lazio - 7.5m - Macedonian
One of the best strikers on the game.

Eddie Johnson
ST - 23 - Kansas - 2-3m - American
He is a great player and is very clinical.

Charlie Sheringham
ST - 19 - Crystal Palace - 50k - English
He is a brilliant striker for teams in the lower leagues, especially Blue Square North/South. He latches on to a lot of chances with a high success rate. He should bag you lots of goals.

Sergio Aguero
ST - 19 - Athletico - 22-25m - Argentinian
Seen by many as the best player on the game, this guy will get you lots of goals. One of the ebst strikers on the game.

Adriano
ST - 25 - Inter - 10m - Brazilian
Great stats, play him right up at the top with someone behind him i.e like i do with Torres and hes pure gold, set him to targetman to feet, hes so strong, and has got a great shot. Must for every top club.

Fraizer Campbell
ST - 17-18 - Manchester United - 0-3m (almost guarenteed loan) - English
Very good striker for Championship teams, and if trained correctly can go on to be an excellent striker in the Premiership

Could become a great Premiership striker in the future.

Adrian
ST - 19 - Deportivo - 4.1m - Spanish
Expensive for someone so young, but surely he will turn into one of the best on the game.

Dagoberto
AM/FC - 22 - Sao Paulo - 3m- Brazilian
Deadly finisher and a pin point accurate passer.

Mauro Zarate
ST - 20 - Al Sadd - 3m - Argentinian
He is valued at 11m but he can be bought for a lot less because he is playing in Quatar. He is an excellent finisher.

Carlos Tevez
ST - 24 - Manchester United - 25m - Argentinian
He's scored 20 in 21 games for me so far at Man Utd, including 3 hat-tricks.

Tommy Hoiland
ST - 18 - Bryne - 80k - Norwiegen
You need to load up the Norwiegen league to find this gem of a player, but after loaning him out first season he progresses quickly and becomes one of the greats.

Enzo Scorza
FC - 19 - Danubio - 200k - Uruguyan
Loan this players out in the first season and keep a close eye on his progress, as he is excellent. By the second season he should be ready for first team action.

Great for top half Championship teams, but will sign for lower leages too!

Great wonderkid, especially on 8.0.0 patch. Still a good player on newer versions, is top notch almost instantly (second season onwards).
