  1. Strikers not scoring

    Run a 4-3-3 B formation. Tackling: Hard. Mentality: Attacking. Passing Style: Short. Attacking Style: Down Both Flanks. Tempo: Fast. Pressing: Own Half. Counter Attacking: Yes. Tight Marking: Yes. Use Target Man: Yes. Captain your Goalkeeper. Your Target Man should be your number 9 (Central Attacker in the 4-3-3). Have Forward arrows on the fullbacks and wingers. Now I would expect your strikers to get goals.
  2. Help With Deal(s) Thread...

    Lucas Torreira or Serej Milinkovic-Savic? Primarily looking at long-term potential and likelihood of moving to bigger club, etc.
  3. Harry Kane (38) sets a new Premier League record for most goals in a single calendar year. The previous record was 36 by Alan Shearer in 1995. Harry Kane has scored more hat-tricks (8) in 2017 than Messi, Ronaldo, Lewandowski, Aguero and Cavani combined (7). Harry Kane is now the world top goalscorer of calendar year 2017 (56 goals). He's only 24, but he's been delivering and improving upon himself for nearly 4 years now. This boy is so much better than a 93 rating.
  4. Worldwide Risers

    I respectfully disagree. Sterling has always been quality; he has simply added goals to his game which has drawn him a lot more recognition this season. His performance over time (particularly the past 4 months) should have merited him a +1 in the recent review. If he continues on his current form to the next review, he will be deserving a +2 to 93 to make up for SM's mistake. Perhaps the same is true for Kimmich also.
  5. Aside from the poor individual cases across the leagues, I've never known them to miss out an entire team before *cough* Huddersfield *cough*.
  6. Worldwide Risers

    I would say that Sterling will 100% hit 92 tomorrow, but... Kimmich never saw 92, Kane never saw 94, Azpilicueta never saw 93, Mertens is still 92. I'm also hoping for De Gea to hit 95 due to him being the world's best in his position (Neuer should be above on SM rating due to club/NT achievements) but that is optimistic of me.
  7. Jesus got his 91 this morning!
  8. I hate to attack the person rather than the argument, but I find it hilarious that you can attack someone for bias in this instance. You yourself, on your profile page, have a picture of Klopp holding an LFC banner. Perhaps there is a little bias on your side? Both Coutinho and Eriksen are fantastic players, but I rate Eriksen higher.
  9. Help With Deal(s) Thread...

    I feel Umtiti's rise is almost certain, whereas I'm 50/50 on if Dier will rise in this next review.
  10. Worldwide Risers

    He should, yes.
  11. I'm expecting Kolasinac to rise, he's consistently been high quality for Arsenal. SM might want to wait until the end of the season though.
  12. Player Ratings

    There's no meaningful way to challenge, no. It would be unlikely that they have specifically targeted reductions at players you own; you've probably just made unfortunate choices in your acquisitions. There are a number of threads on this forum dedicated to predicting (it's pretty much down to a science now) which players will rise/fall and by how much. As it happens, there are the Italian, English and Spanish leagues under review in the next few weeks. I might advise you check these threads to make purchases/sales whilst there is still time.
  13. Bundesliga Ratings Discussion

  14. Counter formations

    Completely agree. I know it's only anecdotal, but a good example of this occurred for me on Saturday. My starting 11 were rated lower than my opponents, yet I played 4-3-3 (B) (attacking down flanks) against 4-3-2-1 (attacking through middle) and destroyed them 5-2. Despite conceding 5 goals, their keeper also had a match rating of 10, so i expect it could have been more. They were dominated in every stat.
  15. Bundesliga Ratings Discussion

    Pulisic is looking at a +1 or a +2 in this review and I would be very surprised if he got anything more. SM ratings are not based on transfermarkt value or whoscored points.
