    Word of Warning

    While some of these youngsters are good enough to slot straight into your top flight team and do a job others will need some careful handling if they are ever to fulfil their potential. Many of the best FM 2011 young players listed here have the potential to be great but that’s no guarantee and their actual performance will vary from game to game. Part of that is random and part is down to how they are trained up and how much experience they get. Bringing talent through is a tightrope and you need to give them enough play to develop but not so much that they burn out or lose confidence.

    Remember you can loan players out to get experience at a lower level so you don’t need to pitch them straight in at the deep end. You’ll find some bargain and out of contract players in our other player guide and you can also find handy hints and tips about negotiating contracts, tactics and formations in our Football Manager 2011 Guides.

    If you've got any other suggestions for good young players in FM 2011 then post a comment.
