Download FM 2013 Wonderkids shortlist: 264 players included

FM 2013 Downloads

written by Johnny Karp

This post hardly needs an introduction. All I’m going to say is that after reading it you will be able to download a shortlist containing the best 264 under 21 prospects in Football Manager 2013. The probably are more FM 2013 wonderkids to be discovered, depending on the leagues you load when starting a game, but you have to know that I have compiled this shortlist after playing and scouting for a full season in FM 2013 with all the major European leagues loaded.

As I said, there are 264 under 21 players included, with potential ability ratings ranging from 2.5 stars (fairly good Premier League player) to 5 stars (world class player). The scouting was done using Arsenal’s top notch scouting team. As always, you will find detailed profiles of these lads and their future profiles on the FMS Scouting Network.

In case you were wondering which players got 5 stars for potential ability, here’s the list of the very best FM 2013 wonderkids:

P.S.: In case you were wondering how I played a full season, the answer is I have played it on the review copy I had (read all about that here). The database hasn’t suffered any changes from that version of the game to the public beta version.

Wow, it’s great that you can already play FM13! Can’t wait to get the game myself! Any thoughts about a new story yet? Thanks for keeping us up to date with all the new features and all the news regarding the new version :D


Thanks again Johnny, keeping my eyes out for some of the especially cheap ones! ;)

Kurt Zouma is such a monster on later patches in FM2012 already, and Isco looks brilliant from what I have seen in real life (would expect Jay Rodriguez and Jordan Rhodes to be in this list somewhere too :D)


there are some i already know. but, i think it’s not enough because Brazil striker Damiao and South korea striker Son from HSV were not included.
