This year has been a success. Football Manager 20 was brilliant, let’s be honest. Aside from a few match engine bugs and your winger firing into the side netting instead of squaring it for an open goal, the game has been great.

And now, as we wait for the release of Football Manager 21 on November 24th, it’s time to reflect on the year that’s gone by. The players we’ve managed in particular.

So, we took to the Football Manager Memes Instagram page to ask the ultimate question:

Who is the best player on Football Manager 20? And the votes are in.

We first asked the question and then whittled it down to a shortlist of the very best players based on initial votes, before rolling the final shortlist out.
