Always bought him on FM 2006.Joaquin is still playing, scored a hattrick recently and has had his highest scoring season since 2002 when he missed a pen against Korea.
Ah the days when Valencia had Vicente and Joaquin.
Deadline day legend Peter Odemwingie
Eren Derdiyok, a highly rated Swiss player. Scored perhaps the best individual goal of the last twenty years for Bayer Leverkusen against Wolfsburg. Plays in Uzbekistan now.
I don't know if anyone else remembers him, but Cesar Delgado was once a highly rated player at Cruz Azul. He played in the Lyon team that reached the CL semis in 2010.
Forever linked to Arsenal wasn't he? I recall an Arsenal fan of Sky Sports News saying Wenger needs to sign him as he's a world class midfielder I cringed back then as he probably had never even seen the guy play but was lauding him as world class.To add to the list of Centre Mids we were once desperate for us to sign who are now at St Etienne, Yann M'vila
https://www.planetfootball.com/in-depth/iker-muniain-long-journey-man-labelled-spanish-messi/I’d have spent 50M on him in 2012, thought he’d be a top 3 Spanish player by now. Not surewhat happened.
Would be curious to see his dribbling stats from before and after, I thought he could be a cleverer Hazard before the injury.Also just didn’t kick on
There was another Turkish wide player massively rated at the time, Karadinz or something. Turkish fan on another now defunct forum would constantly claim he'd come and rip up premier league.Arda Turan.
Youtube's algorithm suggested me Turkey vs Croatia from the, far now, 2008. The guy is still in Barcelona somehow.
