    Rahul W's rating predictions

    When we scout young players who are attracting big clubs, we do it because they will one day play for giants and rise to be the best players in the game. Let’s take a look at different examples. Leon Bailey is attracting Bayern and just about all the big English clubs. Why will he rise? Because of this interest? No. Because he plays in a top division and is a top performer. arthur for gremio rose from 75 to 87 this past December. Is it because he was connected to Barcelona? No. He had just won the Libertadores and was MOTM in the final. Not to mention he was called up to for Brasil in 2017. Sessegnon, while voted POTY, is an uncapped player in a second division which is being given way too much weight in this forum. Championship teams cannot qualify for Europe. Rarely do Championship players play for their national team. Ruben Neves does, and he has probably maxed out at 86. I don’t think soccerwiki takes “interest “ into account at all nor should they.

    Well I'm gonna go against the other replies so far and say I'd go for Oblak. He'll be 94 soon I think. Navas could well be replaced this summer, he's a bit of a liability at times. Umtiti is great and will rise, but there are more 91+ defenders around than 91+ keepers. Oblak would be a great buy.

    17th: Leeds, Norwich, Sheffield Wednesday + (QPR, Nott Forest, Hull) 18th: Sheffield Utd, Bristol City, Ipswich + (Leeds, Norwich, Sheffield Wednesday) 19th: Preston, Millwall, Brentford + (Sheffield Utd, Bristol City, Ipswich) 20th: Villa, Boro, Derby + (Preston, Millwall, Brentford) 21st: Wolves, Cardiff, Fulham + (Villa, Boro, Derby) 22nd: Ligue 1? + (Wolves, Cardiff, Fulham) Usually each team takes two days, so the bracketed are the second days. So according to this forecast Ligue 1 will start on Tuesday.

    To prevent it to be assumed, I’m not asking for predictions for those. I spent many hours making my own predictions. I just thought that might be an interesting topic to discuss and you do those things here too I noticed. The German football magazine Kicker chose it’s top Eleven for the just finished season, maybe some here are interested in that: Koen Casteels (Wolfsburg) – Jerome Boateng (Bayern), Naldo (Schalke), Mats Hummels (Bayern) – Charles Aranguiz (Leverkusen) - Nico Schulz (Hoffenheim), James Rodriguez (Bayern), Lars Bender (Leverkusen) – Andrej Kramaric (Hoffenheim), Serge Gnabry (Hoffenheim) – Robert Lewandowski (Bayern) That of course doesn’t mean those were automatically good buys. For example I had Casteels during the winter Rating Changes since he finally showed improvements in his play, but Soccermanager didn’t honor his improvements despite he is among the weakest rated goalkeepers in Germany, they let him stay. I personally think naming him the best keeper of the season is too much. His advantage was, that many players in the field in Wolfsburg played really disappointingly and so he tended to be the best player from Wolfsburg in matches. Goalkeepers often look better, the worse their colleagues play as they are often ineffected by bad team shapes. But I still think he should be rated way above the 86 he currently has. It seemed he finally had his breakthrough season. But I kind of doubt given no rating change in winter, that he will be a buy worth recommending. Since they didn’t improve his rating back then I would assume them to be sceptical enough on this player to only give him 87. It’s very interesting how different opinions on certain players can be. I also certainly wouldn’t name Nico Schulz as part of the Eleven of the season. He showed some nice improvements in the second part of the season in particular. But he also got some sunshine from how Hoffenheim played as a team. Yes he improved, but improving players tend to be hyped. I think there is other players on this position who have played better and/ore riper. For example no mather if David Alaba or Juan Bernat are playing for Bayern, you can clearly see they have a superior skill set although they weren’t lucky enough too be as much involved in goal scoring or assisting as Schulz or Max. So I think for this position they’ve rather been going with a hype here. Lars Bender is a player I would like to specifically address as well. Not because I disagree with Kickers choice, but because I disagree with Löw not taking him to Russia. From how he played this season Bender would have deserved it. But of course that’s not the way how it works. You don’t pick the best individual players, you gotta pick a team you think will be successful together, successful with the tactics you want to play. So I’m not gonna blame Löw for not taking him. Some strong players just have to stay at home, it’s always that way and I find it funny when coaches or fans get actually even furious about such squad decisions. If trainers would pick to either satisfy or spite public opinion, that’s what I think would actually be problematic. The important thing is a coach has a good plan, that he takes necessary steps to follow it through. But back to Lars Bender. I was surprised that apparently some people are fearing him to drop. He usually played really good when availabe for selection. He is a really reliable player who is in my opinion very important to the team. I would even call him the most important player in this years Leverkusen squad. The same as his brother Sven he has some tendencies to be injured and then miss some matches due to that. As long as the soccer manager admins do their job and note that his amount playing time was due to injuries, he shouldn’t be degraded. I personally even voted for a rise, since I think he is better than 90. His brother Sven Bender on the other hand I find worse than his current 90. He excelled at being a workhorse as a defensive midfielder. But those times are past. He nowadays usually plays a defender (maybe due to wearing off) and I don’t think he is as good at that job. Maybe there is the risk they might mix up those twins.

    It should not influence, fortunately for them they just have better options upfront, that doesn't mean he's not good. But they better make a lot of goals, because that defense is not impressive at all.

    I was referring to the rises given last year. No point in doing the predictions yet as they won't be updated until next season. Of the promoted sides though, Giovanni de Lorenzo certainly deserves a plus 4 or 5. Bennacer should get a solid rise too.

    Pretty harsh for the Championship again, but a nice rise for Mendez-Laing. I really can't agree with the way that SM seem to consider other 2nd tiers to be at least equal in terms of quality though. And Germany has begun as predicted as well.

    Pretty poor reviews in the Championship today and I would say that they misjudge the strength of the division. Obviously it is not remotely close to the big 5, but it is certainly stronger than the other 2nd tiers and many other leagues around the world.

As for Ads welcome to earth welcome to the new world adapt or die go with the flow as this is only going to get worse in all aspects of entertainment.

    Not sure that Sinclair had such a great season - chalk and cheese with last year. Wasn’t even seen as automatic starter last few months - pretty sure he won’t be breaking the Celtic 87 ceiling on current form. Tierney on the other hand would deserve to. As long as a healthy core of the Aberdeen squad are given their worthy +10 - that’ll be the Scottish League update.

    Interesting thread, thank you. How good is Portimonenses Bruno Tabata ? He is linked with a transfer to Stuttgart in the german media, Does he just have a good agent who spreads rumours to give him a better contract in Portugal ? Or is he already good enough for one of the big leagues ? Thanks, Damian

    Rahul W's rating predictions

    I'm not a mathematician but 87 and 88 is not the same number nor is it not the same jump to 90 lol what is hard to comprehend? 12 goals and 5 assists is not enough for a + 3 to 90 not a written rule but I've been on this game since '07 so I know just a little about how and why ratings are work, there are no titles, no WC, no hype of a potential transfer all point to the fact that he won't jump from 87 to 90 he's not exactly set the world alight and everyone is talking about such an amazing season and player who is being courted by all the big clubs, I won't say anymore on the topic the ratings will come and that'll be it not going to back and forth with someone who is clearly fanboying over one player he probably has in all his teams. And in terms of Depay I don't want nothing lol, I'm giving you a different perspective you seem to clearly know everything and talk down on anything that doesn't suit your opinion maybe you should start your own thread and talk to yourself on there I'm sure you'll enjoy the company

    Rony Lopes ended the season with 17 goals and 12 assists in all competitions, 12 goals and 5 assists after his last review to 87. Monaco got 2nd place and lost Coupe de la Ligue only to mighty Psg. He only doesn't go to WC because of stupid retrograde manager. I think he deserves the 90, the likes of Keita Balde, Inaki Williams, Rashford, Martial didn't do more or achieve more than him to reach 90. Depay 20+ goals, definitely deserves 91, is above all the 90 rated players.

    MYT GW

    MYT GW 382014

    Hi guys MYT (Meet Your Target) is a custom gw with the central concept being that big clubs within each division (4 excluded) have to meet targets laid out by a panel. Failure to do means being sacked and demoted to a smaller club. Performing managers are given the opportunity to manage at a higher level and this creates tension, drama and a realistic football management experience. Aside from targets, we are also a social interactive community and have a you tube channel where we interview managers on a panel show via skype and upload the latest league tables, we have a website where managers can write blogs on their teams and we have a facebook group which connects the gameworld and results, team news etc can be posted. All of this helps contribute to a transparent, fun and highly pressured gw. If this sounds like something you would be interested in come and join the fb group, susbcribe to to the you tube channel and take a look. We want 100% committed, active managers that will be interested in the social element of the gw. You can find us on you tube MYT TV. On facebook we are MYT soccer manager.

    It's hard to compare these players. Each of them has a certain quality and potential. For me, the most concrete is Gelson Martins. Neres & Malcom, should go to bigger clubs. Pulisic & Lopes are in clubs that are in the transition phase. Lopes had a great season, but Pulisic somehow lost. We'll probably answer this question in the next season.

    Thanks and off the top of my head: A) Plenty of Championship players should quadruple in value such as Jake Cooper and Jack O'Connell. Aguirregabiria is obviously a bargain too. B Bahoken or Sobrino are decent cheap options. C) Wolf is a tad too expensive, but Srarfi or Rosier maybe.
