Football Manager 2008 Dream Team

I'm just generally interested to see who people rate as the best players in the game. We all know about the Ronaldo's, Messi's and Torres' of the game, but how many people actually use them, and in what formation do they play them.

This is my first post, and I’m just generally interested to see who people rate as the best players in the game. We all know about the Ronaldo’s, Messi’s and Torres’ of the game, but how many people actually use them, and in what formation do they play them.
So the idea of this is just to see how people operate their fantasy teams.

Ok you have the budget of Mark Hughes and can buy any player in the world. Below put together your own dream line ups. It’s been a year since the game was released so it should be pretty clear to you all who is worth having and who is not. To get the ball rolling i shall post my own. Feel free to comment, but i would suggest not bad-mouthing someone else’s team unless you have the nuts to post your own for criticism.

You can have the obvious 11 starters in the formation you’d use, and then 5 Bench players.

Mine lines up as follows:

Cech

Sergio Ramos        Terry          Ferdinand              Lahm

De Rossi

Ronaldo                                                                Messi

Kaka

Villa                  Adriano

Subs:
Casillas
Collocini
Essien
Sneijder
Torres

Auther: Hotshot Hodson

    ST==> villa rooney

    with this team, until the 4th season i won every cup and league

  7. i also have many backup players and hot prospects.

    players like:

    -Stefan Maierhofer(ST)

    -Cristian Grindheim (AMC)

    -Aleksander Tetty (DMC)

    -Tarik El-younossi (AMRL)

    -David Gustavsson (ML)

    -Hubnik (MR)

    -Magnar Fagermo(MC)

    -Jakob Johason(ST)

    -Myklebust(ST)

    -Tore berge(MR)

    -Geir Krogh(DR)

    many very good yougsters with very very good potential abililty so how good they become is up to how you develop them and send them to teams on loan you know will get 20 starts…

  8. I notice that most of you guys have worls class super-star teams, and although it seems like fun winning every time, i wonder how on earth you beat Manutd 19-1 in a semi-final game without cheating, and cheating big time!!!!!!!!!!There ain't even no use for discussing this issue..so please don't come here and brag about cheating…cause a 10 year old can cheat his way to glory too..

    I took over FC.lyn Oslo. in Real life this club lost their licence and play in 6. division now. Norweigian teams lack consistency and rarely play in The CL. so in 5 seasons i've turned Lyn into the 5th. strongest team in Europe..and here is my team:

    GK-(Libis Arenas)

    DR-(Mikael Lustig)

    DC-(Tore Reginiussen)

    DC-(Sebastian Prodl)

    MC-(Rene Mihelic)

    ML-(Dusan Svento)

    MR-(Tobias Mikkelsen)

    ST-(Gustavo Oberman)

    Subs:

    DMC-(Matic)

    MC-(Joakim Persson)

    MR-(Cabrera)

    ML-(Luca di Matteo)

    DC-(Trevor Trevisan)

    ST-(Vestergaard)

    ST-(Wellington Silva)

    GK-(Rune A. Jarstein)

    I've won the Norwegian Premier division 5 times in a row, the norwegian cup 3 times, A scandinavian league of the best teams in scandinavia called the Royal league 4 times.I've reached the semi-final of the chamipions league twice and won the tornoument 2 times,winning the club-world championship 1 time.. And now i can't even count how many top clubs approached me but i won't leave LYN until liverpool comes calling;) I've turned down, Arsenal,Man city, Man utd, Inter, Valencia and 10s of other top clubs in mexico,brazil and europe..That is the beauty of FM. And it feels better bragging;)
