With about 8 or 9 of the free transfers in my first team I won La Liga with Recreativo, having lost once.
What most of them share (especially the cheaper ones) are very high Creativity or Off the Ball or Positioning or Physical skills (Acc/Pace/Jumping) ratings. I've come to the conclusion that out of the technical skills the most important seems to be Creativity. The attacking tactical skill, Off the Ball, trumps even finishing, heading and long shots in terms of scoring. A player WILL score more if he has high ratings in the last three attributes, but they seem nowhere near as essential. The defensive tactical skill, Positioning, simply skyrockets the number of tackles/game on any player who isn't in a F/AM position. Tackling will help a player win more, but even players with low tackling win a fair number of challenges. Jumping skyrockets the number of Headers. Pace seems to be overall very useful.

Out of the bargain guys, I've found the following to do great:

Arriki Afriye and David Avilla for strikers - I play a 3-5-2 so the 2-striker combo doesn't produce many goals (seems to be a characteristic of the game), but both get a lot of dangerous shots after which the I score from rebounds, not to mention key passes. Off the ball seems to be also important for getting that key pass in the last quarter of the pitch (my AMC and two FC's seem to get more if their Off the Ball is better). Orri Freyr Oskarsson and Morocutti are two big bruisers, great for winning headers and holding the ball up.

Marajo, an incredible scoring AMC. Dobek is great for winning headers and getting key passes. Kevin Franck - ditto. Dian Kirilov - tons of runs and goals in the AMC position.

MC - Artur Correia, very effective tackler. Ravneng as well. So is Hreidar Stefansson.
Koffi Kalukembi, Alex the MLC and Kevin Franck get a ton of passes in the MC position. Also found out that in my tactic at least DCs also get a lot of tackles in the MC position if their positioning is good. Which is strange since my MCs are basically AMCs wib/wobbed into disguise. David Fox is great overall, especially in terms of headers and goals (pretty good Jumping, 15-20 on Off the Ball).

Wingers - Sergio Lara is great for a right winger, has got great workrate and teamwork, off the ball and crossing. Danny Byrne has huge Creativity, gets a ton of passes in. Same if you put Alex the MLC in the left winger position. Kaczmarek is a great runner, Montenegro is great overall. Bamuza Sono scores a ton, gets a ton of assists, has a very high Off the Ball, passing, crossing. Reyad as well, him you can use anywhere in the midfield/attacking midfield, he will perform. Also Talal abu al Magd, fantastic runner, scores a lot. Strange, but I found out that even if you switch a wingers position (playing a ML as a MR) they don't underperform significantly. Bergstrom and Chanko are great overall, but then again they are very balanced in terms of attributes (also more expensive)

Best defenders in my experience - Espin, Sbrizzo, Ahmed Al Sayed, also (but not as much) Ravneng, Victor, Tierney.

A general observation - if a player is crap at almost everything BUT a particular attribute, it seems to kick that attribute into overdrive. At least that has been true for the ones I described above. I interpret it as the match engine "knowing" that a player's good at only one or two things and then acts accordingly. I've had Espin (Positioning 18, tackling 12, marking 8 or so, jumping 15) tackle Shevchenko into a 4 and a half-time substitution.

Also, in certain situations Off the Ball seems to be interchangeable in effect with Positioning. Sergio Lara and Bamuza Sono, for example are two guys that are absolute crap in the positioning/tackling department, but have ridiculously high OtB. They complete a lot of tackles every game.

Hope that helps somewhat
