    Legends of the Update seasons

    We are all aware of the legends of the classic version (Kerr, Duff, West, and so on).

    But what are the legends of the updated versions? I don't mean Messi, Ronaldo, Hazard or other real-world stars but the players that never really made it in real-life but consistently led your teams to glory (a la Tsigalko et al).

    I'll start by naming two:

    Emil Krafth (DR) Sweden
    Hands down the best right back I ever had since Mike Duff. Part of my legendary champions league winning Benfica Squad. You could also retrain him as a DMC and he was a beast there as well.

    Omar Al-Soma (ST) Syria
    Tsigalko who? Good ol' Omar had a scoring record that put Maxim and Tó to shame.

    I can't remember the Databases but I remember plenty of future superstars we created that weren't very good

    Tony Huston (DRC - the new Thuram : last with DC Motema Pembe in DR Congo)
    George Green (MC - the new Gazza : now with Chester)
    Oliver Korch (GK - the new Schmeichel : now at Hvidovre IF)
    Mikel Zaton (FLC - the new Raul : now at Sestao River)

    Think BBC did an article on George Green recently, remember Tony Houston being a beast of a defender, think it may have been you who signed him on one of the PTP's for Mellila Derm.

    Yeah, when I say new Thuram, he was an exact copy of ODB Thuram except younger

    Didn't realise that, do you do that often for players dubbed "the new..."?

    nah, he was a once off. Sometimes we'd use ODB legends as a template e.g. Krath and Duff

    Wasn't there a cult following for a German striker a few years ago? His name excepts me, am sure it was Sebastian something.

    Mumin Nurishi, Samed Yesil, Aleksandrs Cekulajevs
    BTW, what do you think about creating fictional DB with legends from updates?

    Robert Javier, think he was on the Helvete update or possibly the Sawczuk (however it was spelt) update, essential when doing the Barakaldo challenge on the old forums.

    I don't remember which update it was, but David Oleksiak was absolutely huge for me in a N.Ireland league challenge.. Even in europe and big cl matches he still did wonders and I got him for free (SC)

    About 3 years ago there was this striker, Federico Palacios-Martinez or something. Not too good stats but bagged more than 1 goal per game
