    CM Legends you've never managed

    Are there any legends of the game that you've never signed or inherited when you've took over a team?

    Just having a think and I seem to have a blind spot for Argentinians as I don't think I've ever managed Saviola, Palermo, Aimar or Riquelme!

    Other notable legends I haven't managed include some of the Super Greeks in Papadopolous and Tobros, while for those who remember him Robert Javier of Helvete update fame has never been under my tutelage.

    Being a super stingey manager when I play, I rarely splash out on the established big name guys.
    I would have managed a lot of them in their twilight years (bosman rule transfers ) but a few legends that I've never had at my team:

    Juan Veron
    Oliver Kahn
    Diego Simeone

    Also, the super beast players that everyone talks about on here, I have never even seen them in my own games and was never aware of them before reading this forum. Have never managed any of them.

    Pretty much all the .68 legends as I played only .60 until I joined here and started using updates

    My team would inevitably end up like this

    GK - Chiotis / Pinheiro
    DL - Milevskiy / Arca
    DR - Okoronkwo / Arce
    DC - West / Klompe
    DC - Yepes / Viali
    DMC - N'Diaye / Kaluzny
    MC - D'Alessandro / Messera
    MC - Barsom / Aghahowa
    SC - Konstantinou / Nikiforenko
    SC - Toni / Tsigalko
    MC - Riquelme / Kerr / Bakirkiolgu

    Messera is another for me, don't think I'd even heard of him until I read the Being Ernest Happel story.

    I don't think I have ever played the original db, neither. 60 nor. 68, so... Tsigalko, West, Madeira... They are all unknown territory to me.

    Never bought Skalidis, did he exist only in the .68 version? I always played the .60 one and bought Tsigalko, Kerr, Aghahowa, West, Okrowonkwo, Virtanen, Hadzemehmedovic.... you name them. Never Skalidis though!

    Yeah I think most of the super Greeks were only in .68 although Chiotis and possibly a few others were still in .60

    Chiotis and Konstantinou were good low budget signings.

    I've never used Tsigalko. I bought Skalidis once but he was so injury prone it was ridiculous..... Chiotis always played poorly for me so I gave up using him.

    I also never used To Madeira.

    I would usually buy Hugo Pinheiro, Mark Kerr, Taribo West, and Alexandros Papadopoulos.... and I'd often snag Bojan Djordic from Man United and Gattuso from Milan..... the rest of the squad I'd fill in with whoever

    Never had Tsigalko or Zola Mokouko

    I always remember Skalidis scoring all 7 on his debut for me.

    Never used To Madeira, Mark Kerr, Aghahowa

    I've used Skalidis and Papadopoulos. They are ridiculous. It's borderline cheating. Oh and Tobros.

    Never ruined my game with To Madeira. It was like a personal rule.

    From the ODB the only two that I don't remember signing are Pawel Brozek and Tallan Martin (could never get a work permit and wasn't going to give him silly wages to do so!)

    He does have -1 potential so in some saves he was better than others.

    To Madeira, because I always had .68 patch!
    And probably many others that I can't think of
