Just wanted to note any great names that are thrown up by Player Manager.

I once had a L.Ritchie that I bought for 666k. There is also a J.Knight (Jedi Knight) in my Newcastle team.

If you asked me the 'Holy Grail' name I'm looking for, it would be O.J.Simpson, which is a possible PM name.

Also, I have found that certain names have a 'pedigree':

Collins, Fairweather, Longhurst, Stanley, Robinson

In my 1000k teams, these names occur often in my top players. Has anyone else noticed this? I wondered if it was a quirk in the random generation routine.

Here I present you the most strange name I ever encountered in PM:
B.A.D. WEST (!!!)
He was playing for Chelsea during one of my PM sessions. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

That's excellent. B.A.D.West - you could also get a F.West if you were lucky. Fred West was a mass murderer in the UK who killed lots of people round Gloucester (although no Beards).

On the subject of villians, we've also had a M.Chapman, who was the guy who shot John Lennon.

I had a player in my squad called M.ELLIOTT. A great defender, he was the best CB I ever had! Does this name ring any bells to you? <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif">

Had an M.Williams I think, but he was pants.

As for faves, if the player is fantastic but has a poor name I wont buy him!

As probably all of you do, as soon as PM is set up I go through and get rid of unwanted players, first thing is the name and then the skills : )

Elliott's always seemed to make good Central Mids and Collins where always good Full backs.

Agility and Speed shouldn't be so high, after all he didn't manage to dodge Alkis at the Won-It-Baby moment! <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif">

Ely you're certainly a 1700K player! <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif">
Now if I was a PM player I'd have:

Stamina: 200 (for being a Greek paratrooper)
Agility: 200 (for the same reason)
Pace: 200 (I'm realy fast!)
Resilience: 200 (No pain)
Aggression: 100 (I'm peaceful unless provoced)
Passing: 0 (No way you get that ball!)
Shooting: 170 (My right foot is a killer)
Tackling: 170 (My left foot is a killer)
Keeping: 0 (I can't keep things)
Last but not least: Morale: Extra Super Confidence!
