The original Héctor Bellerín.
Goran Pandev. Haven't heard that name in a while, surprised to see he's "only" 35 and still playing in Serie A.
Emre Belozoglu tbf.
Benito Carbone, Bradford and Sheffield Wednesday legend.
Jonathan Woodgate, about to be named Boro manager.
I could have sworn he passed away a few years ago in tragic circumstances
Nope. In 2000 he was convicted of assault outside a nightclub in Leeds. Lee Bowyer, who was allegedly the instigator and faced more serious charges, got off.
A very classy but hopelessly injury prone defender. Can’t see him as a manager at all.
Márcio Sousa! He still plays football at lower divisions. And to think at age of 17 this guy had every single top club after him and was considered by FIFA as the most promising player of his generation.
Gelson Fernandes - Swiss player I believe who was meant to be fantastic. Played at City
Manuel Fernandes - was at Everton and played well in a game against Arsenal
Blerim Dzemaili, Valon Behrami
Always bought these two when I played FM with lower league teams.
Is that the one that played against us with a broken leg?
Bundesliga champion, former captain of VfB Stuttgart and German international who disappeared with his transfer to the Russian league, briefly reappeared for a short loan with Bayern Munich, disappeared again to Russia and is now apparently playing for Erdogan's club.
Behrami is still a regular in Serie A at Udinese. Was shocked when I checked when he had that season at West Ham, 2008.
From that Swiss era was always confusing Behrami and Tranquillo Barnetta who was also in Serie A at the time.
I'll get my coat.
Another FM legend for smaller clubs in the earlier editions.
Manuel Fernandes actually did an OK career. Not a world class player, but a good player nonetheless.
Benjani, took 5 of us a few hours to figure out what he was called. He got mixed up with Bony a lot
Jefferson Farfan. Apparently he's doing good in Russia after spending 2 years barely playing in the Middle East.
and apparently Alexander Hleb and Maxi López still play.
Played for Peru at last world cup.
Sort who'd have done very well in the premier league imo. Surprised no one tried to tempt him when he was at Schalke.
Mi amigo Alexis
Forgot about Lee Bowyer
I thought Emre Belozoglu had already retired 10 years ago.
and bummed I can’t embed because I really wanted to post the video of Moyes saying Illarramendi
But yeah I forgot about him
That's pretty harsh for just not being able to embed a video.
I played PES and using Fulham a lot.
I liked using two strikers, a big man with good header (you know him) and a speedy (usually small) striker (Radzinski). Steed Malbranque on the RM, Louis Boa-Morte on the LM. That's my guaranteed 4 front.
Papa Bouba Diop and Claus Jensen at CM.
Voltz, Bocanegra, Zat Knight, Liam Rosenior (still playing?), Collins John, Heidar Helguson, Legwinski, Cristanval. Had very good goalies in Antii Niemi and an American gk I forget his name.
Where’s the next big thing Nathan Delfouneso playing these days? Think I vaguely recall a Caf debate regarding him and his tekkers.
Yeah he’s gonna have to sit on it until his privileges come.
Are those guys real? Seems more like a team of FM regens.
I wanted to comment "who could ever forget these guys?", but looks like horsechoker answered that question.
Remember finding that 'goals goals goals' video a few years back. Showing my age here
Andy Sinton, England's answer to the left wing. Darren Caskey? David Hirst, MUFC bound if rumours were true at the time. Danny Cadamattari - another highly rated young England player in the making...
Kim Kallstrom, Fenedi George...they are all coming back into my head now
Espinas is my favorite, probably the only one with good long shot
Nah Minanda had some good long rangers
They changed some names. Minanda used to be Miranda in ISS:PES2
edit: I remember my first purchase was always R. Carlos, i'd put him as a winger and just spam the ball to him
Separate names with a comma.
