    JC's Detailed Guide To Success in Soccermanager *NEW: Just wanted to say not managed a team for a long time on SM now so I suspect several parts that I have mentioned below are now less relevant, out of date or even completely wrong, for example I believe unmanaged teams can now use any of 20+ formations so using 3-5-2 to beat the previously default 4-4-2 isn't going to work as well . . . Introduction This is my first post in the help section, so please bear with it, and feel free to give advice. I hope it is appreciated. It is very long, so feel free to skip sections, I have tried to highlight key words and sections. What I am hoping to do here is to put down here is most of what I have experienced* about SM over the past 4 years and hopefully help everyone from newcomers to experienced managers and clear-up some misconceptions Disclaimer All the advice will have varying success dependent on your league and your decisions and I cannot guarantee it is all accurate, as I lot of what I say is what I have generally observed and I do not have the evidence to back up a lot of the advice. I will divide the guide into two parts. The only way to improve your teams results is through Tactics or Player Transfers. You will need both, throughout soccer manager you will often see teams of average ratings 80, beat 90s. The match engine relies a lot on tactics, however it is clearly important for the long term to build a strong team. Tactics Use In-Game Instructions If your team is losing at 60 minutes it is rare on soccer manager that this result will be different at 90 minutes. For this reason you should at least make some changes to attempt to make difference. Equally if you are winning at 60 minutes don't make changes, as your formation is working well already. Possession Is The Key Statistic As evidence of this I have just looked at EC106 Div 2, a division with relatively equal sides but some differences, all very active managers who are playing every formation under the sun. Out of the 20 games, looking at the teams with greater possession 16 won, 2 drew 2 lost. Look at your own games and you will often find maybe 80% of games are won on possession. ( I have noticed it can often be inaccurate however if one team changes their formation significantly at some point midway through the game) I have to emphasise though I have never found a way to improve possession, trying formations like 3-6-1 with slow tempo and men behind ball, which you would have thought might improve your possession statistics, will have the same chances of success as any other formation Number Of Shots Is Less Important I hear many managers complain about the number of shots they had and still lost. The number of shots is clearly relevant but less so out of 20 games looking at the teams with the greater number of shots, 10 won 5 lost 4 drew, Possession is the best statistic to look at. Do Not Judge Players On Past Success Many a manager like to judge players on there recent number of goals or favouritism. I would argue selection should be based purely on -rating -position -morale -fitness. I believe The SM match engine can only recognise these 4 facts, and it will NOT KNOW that Dzeko is your favourite player and scored loads for your team last season, or that his rating will go up shortly (EDIT: this was when dzeko was rated 89!), so play Yakubu ahead of him! Edin Dzeko Top Teams Play 3-4-1-2 or 3-5-2 I have looked at a lot of the top teams in the top 100 managers page, mostly those teams with a high average points per game average, some in the region of 2.5 average points over 6+ seasons. I logged into the game worlds for a brief period with a very low club to check their tactics and league form. Now it goes without saying they generally have monster squads, however time and again they use a formation variation on 3-5-2 or 3-4-1-2, this isn't just a few teams, about 60% of the teams I looked at did, maybe 30 teams. My theory behind this is if you have a top team playing 3-5-2, it requires very good players to work, but it may well be consistent if this is the case, hence why I found it so often in the top teams. Also 3-5-2 generally beats the default 4-4-2 formation, again helping these teams. If you play 3-5-2 with a comparatively weaker team it often does not work. I have to state this is NOT a super formation that will necessarily work for you, and if you play it I would expect it too work only in a limited number of circumstances, (as explained above, and also commented on further below) 3-4-1-2, Attacking & Hard Tackling Again these three factors were recurring themes, (although not as common) in the top teams. 3-4-1-2 is more popular than 3-5-2, and generally with the team mentality set to attacking. With hard tackling, this possibly featured more as the squads were large enough to cope with any suspensions and I have never noticed a long term increase in red cards (this is very debatable though). However it will likely result in more injuries. All Formations Can Be Equally Effective I see many threads saying this formation will do well in a certain league or you should player wingers as they will be effective, but I feel it depends greatly on your league and players and I see very few with evidence behind these claims. I'm of the opinion that every formation is equal and that each will have a certain number of tactics it is strong against and an equal number it is weak against, (given the players are equal in rating and morale). Specific formations however can be stronger in a certain league, if some formations are more common your team is lower rated your team is higher rated or it regularly beats default 4-4-2 I cannot be certain of this though, so again take the advice with a pinch of salt. I would like to create a record of which tactics beat which, but there is so many variables it would be nigh on impossible, with billions of combinations. NEW* Secondary Positions Are Just As Effective If a player is a LB/RB for example then he will play equally effectively at either position. He will not play worse than a regular RB at RB. This is an age old question which causes much confusion but Im hoping this will help. http://forum.soccermanager.com/showthread.php?t=20772 The Dev's don't often answer questions (and they have ignored this particular question in the past) or say very much at all about the match engine, I think partially because they feel they may ruin the game and you should experiment yourself, but Ste has let something slip. This quote is taken from SM Dev Ste, under the improvements section about the introduction of preferred foot (the link above): "The players position is still the KEY thing to look at, if a player is LB/RB that means he will play equally good at either position despite his foot. A CM can play CM whatever foot he is etc. It will only effect players who are played out of position. For example if you have a CM who is left footed and you play him right wing he may well play worse than if you played him left wing." The key line being "if a player is a LB/RB that means he will play equally good at either position" More detail on this can be found here: http://forum.soccermanager.com/showthread.php?t=53703 Also now with the player position suggested position feature (you get a green square if he can play there effectively) this point looks to have been proved. The Match Engine Is Simplistic I'm of the opinion that you cannot take the match commentary very seriously or the match engine for that matter. The commentary appears to be almost randomly generated. You will notice you will never see a penalty given, despite being asked to pick a penalty taker? The quotes from the commentary are regularly repeated, even sometimes in the same order, and also many a time in the match commentary you will read about 4 shots on target and then the match statistics will say there was only 2 shots on target. Players Out Of Position If a player is played out of position I believe the match engine will treat him as a lower rated player. So if you play a CB at RB he will maybe drop 2 in rating. Play a CF in CM and he might drop 5 in rating. So it can be advantageous sometime to play players out of position if your only other option is a player 10 less in rating. (This is just a theory, however I think it is likely this is how it will work) Player Fitness Do not play players low on fitness, especially NMF. They are more likely to get injured, player with lower performance and will still be tired the next week so you may as well rest them now. I try not to play players below 80-90% (at worst). Exhausted Play Targetman/Playmaker if Comparatively High Rated I would advise using these two options when you have a player who is especially high rated for your league. These options will then emphasise his greater ability, give him more time on the ball and provide greater influence on the match. Raise Moral If a player is particularly low on moral I would advise giving him a new long contract. Moral will affect there performances and the new contract can often raise there moral by a significant amount. Substitutions If you have enough players I would recommend using substitutions. Even if they are lower rated replacements they will normally get high ratings on the match report and improve the team. It does however mean you will have more players lower on fitness Player Transfers Buy Risers As I'm sure you are aware one of the most important parts of this game is risers. I cannot emphasise this enough. It is often the only way to make money for small clubs, and you can make a lot of money especially in uncompetitive leagues up to 100 million+ a season (if you put in a lot of effort!). It is increasingly important with the latest improvements with cash injections (at the end of the season) now seemingly rarer and the “realistic attendances” generally reducing incomes. Buy Every Rising 10k Player I would recommend you buy every 10k player who might rise. 10k players have the largest percentage increase in value. Often for example 2900% for a moderate rise in value to 300k. Compared with rises in the 84 range where you might get a 100% increase in value. This means if you had 100k to spend and bought 100, 10k players you might get back 25mill! Although it would be important to consider wages. Wages normally are 3k/turn and players are transfer banned for 20turns so a 10k player in reality costs 70k+, so any rise would have to be more than this and this is also why it is perhaps not a good idea to stock up on these kind of players in estonia etc (which I learnt to my mistake) as they haven't reviewed them for 3 years . . .(SM has only been around for about 6 years total, they may as well not bother with these leagues if they are not going to review them) Constantly Invest As soon as players have risen and are of transfer ban try to reinvest your gains. Try to swap them (or swap two players), for a new riser (unless they themselves are going to rise again). Transfer listing them often means you lose value compared with what you get in a player exchange. Also I wouldn't worry if your losing money because wages are too high. Take it player by player if his rise will cover his wages then buy him. You will gain at the end of it, but you will need too sell the odd player to remain out of debt. Loads of risers can be found on threads on the forum or use websites to see who is starting in matches. Buy Players At Big Clubs Try to buy players at the "big" clubs, ie the likes of Liverpool, Bayern Munich, Inter Milan, Barcelona and possibly some others like Sevilla. This is because they are almost guaranteed a 90+ rating for many many years, they don't necessarily have to be performing well, if they are low rated they can often rise rapidly and you will see the large majority of high rated players come from these teams. It can be tempting to buy players at smaller clubs who are talented and performing well (compared to for example a shaky but starting right back for Bayern) but it is much much harder for these players to gain 90+ ratings and they often will only rise to this level after years of amazing (and it is rare that they can maintain this) performances or until they move to a big club. So I would advise taking gambles on players that might break into the big teams. For example Thiago Motta, is an under-appreciated transfer, I feel he will will get a 92+ for a long time (EDIT: somewhat predictably he is now injured!). My Team: Preston North End (not a "big club"!), Talents I often feel many mangers/forumers concentrate on talents too much with very few of them ever making it. In uncompetitive leagues especially, I would advise leaving them and buy them later, when they actually look likely to rise or breakthrough regularly to a big team. For example I believe in 2006 Theo Walcott was rated maybe something in the region of 84 (correct me if I'm wrong) and now 8 SM seasons later he is 89 a surprisingly poor return. Save Money On Contracts This has already been said on previous threads, but try to sign long term risers on 5 year contracts, and if a player drops in rating get him to resign. This is because a player wages is determined by the rating at the current time. Wages jump up in levels at every 5 player rating ie at 80, 85, 90 ,95. Secure Loans If you are lower league team make an effort at the start of a season to try and secure some impressive loan signings. They can easily improve your team for free! Be a bit cheeky and send a few messages too the top teams enquiring (politely) if they might loan anyone, and you can often get players considerably better than those on the loan list. I would also strongly suggest reading Hesse's excellent guide, which goes into a lot more detail on securing loans and negotiating deals with managers within the transfer market, and has a lot of good points; http://forum.soccermanager.com/showthread.php?t=32238 There we go the end of the guide! Hope it was helpful and feedback would be hugely appreciated. *I have been a member since 2006, reputation of 356, 49th in the world with Stoke City in EC60 (though that has been going badly recently!) and manage in EC106, (arguably the most competitive and active setup there is) with Shorpe United.

    Rahul W's rating predictions

    Hey guys so I have been looking through the top teams just to stay on top of the stats and so far here are a few players that have some minutes so far for the "big" teams in Europe (keep in mind most of these are not new players, I am just re-posting my findings when researching on my own for all you lazy buggers out there ;): Format TEAM - Name - Rating - Minutes - Comments NAPOLI - Sebastiano Luperto - 83 - 17mins - Might be a good idea to keep an eye for more game time ROMA - J. Kluivert - 85 - 64 mins - is getting game time, known to everyone but is playing nevertheless... MILAN - Davide Calabria - 87 - 90 mins - Milan have only played once but he started and scored PSG - Colin Dagba - NOT ON DB - 180mins - This guy has played 180 mins for PSG so far, look out for him PSG - Stanley N'Soki - 75 - 134mins - I picked him up for 380k, looks like a steal... PSG - Christopher Nkunku - 86 - 181mins - Again known to many, not a sure thing but keep an eye.... PSG - Antoine Bernade - 73 - 170mins - Another one of PSG's new found youth prospects, surely due a big rise PSG - Timothy Weah - 76 - 54mins - The name says it all, scored once as well DIJON - Enzo Loiodice - NOT ON DB - 270min - This guy is 17, has played every minute for second placed Dijon DIJON - Joules Keita - 70 - 38mins - Not a lot of gametime but 2 goals already from 3 games, could be worth a shot for a competitive gameworld LILLE - Zeki Celik - 80 - 266mins - Arrived from Istanbulspor in summer, has played nearly every minute LILLE - Fode Ballo Toure - 83 - 260mins - Had a great season last season, seems to have picked up where he left off. LILLE - Arton Zekaj - 70 - 1min - Came on in 90+3 minute of 3 - 1 win against Rennes, still worth a possible punt at 18 years old LYON - Pape Cheikh - 80 - 81mins - Again, some minutes for Lyon, low rated, keep an eye throughout season MARSEILLE - Duje Caleta-Car - 86 - 90mins - Played one full game then sat on the bench since arriving, could replace Rami long term? MARSEILLE - Boubacar Kamara - 80 - 136mins - Played 455mins last season, one more game and he is halfway to matching his play time, and Marseille have played 3 games! MONACO - Sofiane Diop - 70 - 78mins - An absolute steal, buy him! MONACO - Jordi Mboula - 76 - 151mins - ABSOLUTE BUY, this guy is a future star, purchase him first when going through Monaco.... MONACO - Pietro Pellegri - 80 - 31mins - Hasn't done enough yet, but at 17 he will no doubt be another Monaco Starlet in time to come MONACO - Willem Guebbels - 75 - 67mins - The fact they paid 20 million euros says a lot, future star with the right nuturing CHELSEA - Callum Hudson-Odoi - 73 - 0mins - Great pre season, hasn't done much but is definitely worth a punt, I can't imagine a person reading the forums to not know him, but on here anyways MANCHESTER CITY - Phil Foden - 80 - 8mins - Again most people know him, maybe more time with De Bruyne's injury? We will see ARSENAL - Matteo Guendouzi - 80 - 236mins - As an Arsenal fan myself and having watched him play, I can safely say he is a superb talent, calm on the ball, clever head on such a young kid, few errors here and there but for a kid brand new to the Premier League I am shocked at how well he has adapted, big rise if he carries this on. ARSENAL - Ainsley Maitland-Niles - 85 - 35mins - Recently broke his leg but Unai Emery likes him, plus he is versatile, will be a fixture for Arsenal and hopefully England in years to come BORUSSIA M'GLADBACH - Louise Jordan Beyer - NOT ON DB - 90mins - Played the full 90 minutes agasint Leverkusen and at 18 should be a good find when he comes on (he's a RB) ESPANYOL - Marc Roca - 84 - 180mins - Another know entity, however he has started both games, Espanyol sit second (insignificant this early on but hey) so he could be on track for a rise/move ESPANYOL - Javier Puado - NOT ON DB - 9mins - Came on as 81st minute substitute in Espnayols first game, has 4 year contract with a 40 million euros release clause and was the top scorer of Espanyol B last season (12 goals). Keep shortlisted. VILLARREAL - Manu Morlanes - 76 - 65mins - On the bench the whole of Villarreals first game, but started and played 65 minutes of second game, he is 19 and rated 76, surely worth a punt. Most of these players everyone knows and some of them people don't, just wanted to give people another topic of discussion so feel free to comment, if people have more in depth knowledge of a player I would love to hear more.

    Counter formations

    Re: Counter formations Updated Version!!!: In my experience at managing and also general comprehension of tactics, I think that: To counter 4-4-2, I would use 3-4-2-1 with diagonal arrows on players 10 & 11, 3-5-2, or 4-4-1-1 To counter 4-3-3, use any formation with 5 in the midfield To counter 4-5-1, use 5-3-2, as suggested by arampage To counter 3-4-3, use 4-2-3-1 To counter 3-5-2, use 4-5-1 defensive or 4-1-3-2 To counter 3-3-4, use 4-4-2 or 3-5-2 To counter 5-4-1, use 3-5-2 To counter 5-3-2, use 3-2-2-2-1 or 4-3-3 wingers To counter 5-2-3, use 4-5-1 defensive To counter 4-4-2 diamond, use 3-5-2 or 3-2-2-2-1 To counter 4-3-3 wingers, use 3-4-2-1 or 3-5-2 To counter 4-5-1 defensive, use 3-4-2-1 To counter 4-2-3-1, use 4-5-1 defensive or default 4-4-2 To counter 4-3-2-1, use 4-2-3-1 To counter 4-4-1-1, use 4-3-3 wingers To counter 4-3-1-2, use 3-4-3 or 5-3-2 To counter 3-4-1-2, use 4-5-1 To counter 3-4-2-1, use 4-2-3-1 or 4-5-1 To counter 5-3-2 defensive, use 3-4-3 To counter 4-2-4, use 4-2-3-1 or 4-3-3 or 4-5-1 To counter 4-2-2-2, use 3-5-2 To counter 4-1-3-2, use 4-5-1 or 4-3-3 wingers To counter 3-2-2-2-1, use 3-5-2 Hope you enjoy! And start winning games from now on too! Note, if you have used this advice and lost a game, please post it in this thread so I can have a careful look and maybe change it. NOTE NOTE: It seems that after SM changed, the counters have mostly stopped working as well as before, as randomisation has been added chance results are more likely to happen (i.e. 352 might not thrash a 442 and 433 wingers might lose to 352 etc.) if you encounter such results post the report here and me and fellow forumers will help you out P.S. I have un-subscribed from this thread myself due to increasing work load and other reasons.

    One Month After the Argentine Review: the Keep/Sell Thread I keep getting requests on my Argentina thread about which players you should be keeping and which players you should be selling, as well as seeing the countless number of queries on the other Argentine threads and the brand new threads created for just an answer. So to save me some time, here, I have picked out every notable riser from the recent Argentine review and given you an indication as to whether they are worth keeping or not. If there is anyone I have missed and you would like to know whether they are worth keeping, then don't hesitate to ask. Furthermore, if you have any enquiries about any player currently plying their trade in Argentina, or if you would like to know a bit more about a certain player, I shall endeavour to answer your question. Each player has an overall verdict attached to their name and I have tried my best to cater for Gold Championship managers, or set-ups of a more competitive nature. If you are a manager competing in a regular set-up that isn't particularly active, then lean more towards the more ruthless side of my verdict. Here is how I assess each different category of my analysis: SELL - this player is rubbish and/or has hit his maximum rating. Get rid as soon as possible, simple as. MAYBE SELL - this player has the potential to go further in the future but it might take a while for him to hit that potential. Sell now if you can't be bothered to wait. KEEP/SELL - this player can be kept or sold depending on the quality of your team, the standard and activity of your set-up and/or your urgency to raise some funds. You have to make a decision based on the information I'm giving you. PATIENTLY KEEP - this player is a good player and/or a hot prospect, but he won't be rising next time. Despite this, he is worth keeping for the future if you are patient with him. KEEP - this player will likely rise again next time and/or is a great player/hot prospect. ***MUST KEEP*** - this player is a future star. Under no circumstances should you be flogging this guy on the cheap. Anyway, enough with the chit-chat, read away. Argentinos Juniors: - currently 5th Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps) - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict Ignacio Canuto (CB/RB - 24) - 5(2) - 84 ---> 86 ---> 86 - MAYBE SELL Has lost his place in the side during March but is more than capable of winning it back in time. Nearing maximum potential rating of 87/88 but set for a stay at the minute next time around. Arsenal de Sarandi: - currently 7th Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps) - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict Claudio Mosca (CM/LM - 19) - 0(0) - 75 ---> 80 ---> 80 - PATIENTLY KEEP Yet to figure in the Clausura, so no rise is imminent. However, he has been called up for the Argentina under-20's. Could sell in uncompetitive set-ups. Ivan Marcone (CM - 21) - 6(1) - 75 ---> 80 ---> 83 - KEEP Gradually becoming a more important figure for Arsenal, starting every game in March (with a record of PL5 - W4 D1 L0). Set for another small rise in the next review and capable of going further after that. Franco Jara (Fwd - 21) - 6(3) - 80 ---> 85 ---> 85 - KEEP Isn't enjoying as successful a Clausura as he did in the Apertura, but has already agreed a deal to join up with Benfica for the Summer. Worth keeping to see how he fits in. Atletico Tucuman: - currently 20th Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps) - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict Damian Musto (CM/RM - 22) - 5(1) - 80 ---> 82 ---> 82 - SELL Tucuman are getting relegated. Sell. Juan Pablo Pereyra (CF - 25) - 7(0) - 80 ---> 82 ---> 82 - SELL As above. Banfield: - currently 6th Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps)* - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict * - 2010 stats include Clausura stats and Copa Libertadores stats. Julio Barraza (RB - 30) - 11(0) - 83 ---> 86 ---> 86/87 - KEEP/SELL Regular for the Apertura champs. Could rise to 87 next time. Keep if 86/87 is good for your squad; sell if you have better, younger prospects. James Rodriguez (Wing/AM - 18) - 12(0) - 78 ---> 85 ---> 87 - ***MUST KEEP*** Integral figure for Banfield, both in the league and the Copa Libertadores. Immensely talented and bound to move to Europe this Summer. Strong links with Juventus. Cristian Garcia (Fwd/Wing - 22) - 5(6) - 77 ---> 80 ---> 82 - KEEP/SELL Very much a back-up striker who plays when Banfield field a weakened side before a Copa Libertadores game in midweek. Could see another small rise but nothing major. Keep if you have the patience to see him break through; sell if you don't. Boca Juniors: - currently 18th Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps) - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict Ezequiel Munoz (CB- 19) - 6(1) - 78 ---> 82 ---> 84 - KEEP Isn't having a great 2010 so far, but has little help around him. Might see a small rise next time with a move to Europe inevitable in the future. Gaston Sauro (CB - 20) - 0(0) - 75 ---> 78 ---> 78 - PATIENTLY KEEP Has been injured much of this year (I think), so hasn't played. Future first-choice CB for Boca. Jesus Mendez (CM/DM - 25) - 8(0) - 84 ---> 86 ---> 86 - MAYBE SELL A regular, but hasn't been the difference maker that Boca were hoping for since arriving from Central. Decent player who has potential to rise in the future, but can't see him rising next time around. Nicolas Gaitan (Fwd/Wing - 22) - 9(0) - 85 ---> 86 ---> 87 - ***MUST KEEP*** Excellent talent with a very promising future. One of the few positive things to talk about at Boca right now. Should move to Europe this Summer, with Ajax already making formal interest. Barcelona are said to be keen. Chacarita Juniors: - currently 13th Alejandro Frezotti (CM - 26) - 10(0) - 77 ---> 82 ---> 82 - SELL Chacarita are favourites to be relegated along with Atletico Tucuman and I reckon Frezotti would go down with them. Facundo Parra (Fwd - 24) - 11(0) - 84 ---> 85 ---> 85/86 - KEEP/SELL Scoring for fun in the Clausura which could earn him a move to a better club if/when Chacarita get relegated. If he does move, he deserves a rise. Diego Morales (Fwd - 23) - 10 (0) - 78 ---> 82 ---> 82 - SELL Important figure for Chacarita and has a hand in a lot of their key plays and goals. Potential target for other clubs but I'd risk selling him. Colon de Santa Fe: - currently 10th Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps)* - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict * - 2010 stats include Clausura stats and Copa Libertadores stats Ismael Quilez (RB/RM - 21) - 1(0) - 78 ---> 83 ---> 83 - KEEP/SELL Just one appearance in 2010, so no rise next time. Not my favourite young full-back in Argentina; maybe cash in. Alfredo Ramirez - (CM/AM - 23) - 1(2) - 82 ---> 85 ---> 85 - MAYBE SELL Has seen very little action this Clausura, being relegated to the subs bench. Can come back and hit a higher rating, but not much higher. No rise next time. Facundo Bertoglio (AM/Wing - 19) - 10(1) - 75 ---> 82 ---> 85 - ***MUST KEEP*** Very talented kid with potential to become one of the top players in Argentina. Has to rise to 85/86 next time, and then further after that. Federico Nieto (CF - 26) - 6(4) - 85 ---> 87 ---> 87 - KEEP/SELL Might just have hit his maximum rating, although more 12-goal hauls like in the Apertura might see him surpass his current rating. Won't rise next time, should stay. Keep if 87 is good for your team; sell if you have better. Estudiantes: - currently 3rd Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps)* - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict * - 2010 stats include Clausura stats and Copa Libertadores stats Damian Albil (GK - 30) - 2(0) - 77 ---> 84 ---> 82 - SELL Was always a stop-gap until Estu signed a number one 'keeper. They now have in the form of Agustin Orion, so Albil is back on the bench. Federico Fernandez (CB/RB - 21) - 4(0) - 78 ---> 80 ---> 82 - PATIENTLY KEEP Plays when Estu put their reserves out to rest the first XI. Might see another small rise next time and is the future of the Estu defence. However, it could take a few years before he usurps any of the current first-teamers. Marcos Rojo (CB/LB - 20) - 4(6) - 75 ---> 80 --> 82 - PATIENTLY KEEP Similar predicament to Fernandez, but possibly half a step ahead in the pecking order. Maximiliano Nunez (Wing/AM - 23) - 8(6) - 76 ---> 80 ---> 84 - KEEP Seeing a fair bit of action this term, although a sub for Estu's most important matches (Copa Libertadores). Will rise next time towards 83/84. Mauro Boselli - (CF - 24) - 13(1) - 88 ---> 89 ---> 89/90 - KEEP Absolute goal machine, with 12 in 12 starts in 2010. Could very well hit 90 next time, but he may just get snapped up in the Summer. Gimnasia La Plata: - currently 14th Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps) - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict Milton Casco (RB/LB - 21) - 1(0) - 75 ---> 78 ---> 78 - SELL Won't be rising next time and could GLP could be getting relegated. Luciano Aued (LM/CM - 23) - 9(0) - 75 ---> 82 ---> 82/84 - KEEP/SELL Very much depends on GLP's end to the season. If they stay up, Aued rises. If they go down, then he doesn't. If you have the patience, wait a couple of months to see what happens to them. Lucas Nahuel Castro (RM - 20) - 2(8) - 75 ---> 81 ---> 81 - SELL Same situation as Casco, although Castro has more chance of a rise if they stay up. Denis Stracqualursi (CF - 22) - 11(0) - 75 ---> 82 ---> 82/84 - KEEP/SELL Same situation as Aued, but I really like this guy. He has a bright future as an 86/87 CF in SM at the least in my opinion. Keep if you're patient. Godoy Cruz: - currently 2nd Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps) - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict Ariel Rojas (CM/LM - 24) - 11(0) - 82 ---> 84 ---> 85/86 - KEEP A key figure for a Godoy side who are doing fantastically well in the Clausura. If they keep up their current form, then he'll hit the upper bracket of my prediction. Carlos Sanchez (CM/RM - 25) - 7(1) - 78 ---> 80 ---> 83 KEEP Has done well since joining from Uruguay and shall see a decent rise next time around. Jesus Vera (Fwd - 20) - 0(0) - 74 ---> 77 ---> 77 - MAYBE SELL Don't know what he's doing but he's not playing and a fair way down the pecking order. Huracan: - currently 9th Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps) - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict Gaston Monzon (GK - 22) - 11(0) - 83 ---> 84 ---> 84 - KEEP/SELL Nearing the limit of his short-term rating of 85/86. With age and experience he could go further but I'd seriously consider selling. Ezequiel Filippetto (CB/RB - 22) - 6(2) - 76 ---> 82 ---> 83 - KEEP/SELL Probably in line for a small rise next time, but it may very well be worth cashing in. Kevin Cura (CB/LB - 19) - 0(2) - 77 ---> 79 ---> 79 - PATIENTLY KEEP Shall not rise next time. Worth sticking with for now. Patricio Toranzo (AM/RM - 28) - 11(0) - 83 ---> 85 ---> 86 - KEEP Key player for Huracan and has already been linked with a Summer move to Independiente. Worth hanging on to. Luciano Nieto (Fwd - 19) - 2(7) - 75 ---> 78 ---> 80 - PATIENTLY KEEP Still very young and very raw but a good prospect nonetheless. Independiente: - currently 1st Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps) - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict Adrian Gabbarini (GK - 24) - 11(0) - 70 ---> 83 ---> 86 - KEEP Undisputed number one for El Rojo, and not a bad 'keeper either. Should hit 86 next time and can go further than that afterwards. Luciano Vella (RB/28) - 9(0) - 82 ---> 84 ---> 86 - KEEP/SELL Regular for Inde at RB but is a steady player at best - nothing special. Will probably rise to 86/85 next time, but sell if that's little benefit to you. Leonel Galeano (CB - 18) - 11(0) - 75 ---> 84 - ***MUST KEEP*** Fantastic defender for his age and holds a big future. Will hit 86 mimimum next time and is a must to move to Europe eventually. Federico Mancuello (LM/CM - 21) - 7(0) - 83 ---> 85 ---> 86 - KEEP Good little player who could rise next time, but nothing more than to 86. Definately worth hanging on to, but maybe cash in to external in uncompetetive set-ups. Walter Busse (CM/AM - 23) - 7(0) - 82 ---> 85 ---> 85 - SELL Was a regular before he sustained a very serious injury against Chacarita, which will keep him out for much of the rest of 2010. Can't see him rising at all in the next two changes, possibly even dropping. Patricio Rodriguez (AM/Fwd - 19) - 0(8) - 77 ---> 82 ---> 82 - PATIENTLY KEEP Great talent but is being bedded in very slowly - no starts in the Clausura. Still has a lot of work to do before fulfilling his huge potential. Dario Gandin (CF - 26) - 11(0) - 85 ---> 87 ---> 87/88 - KEEP/SELL First choice for Inde and a frequent goalscorer. If he can end the Clausura strongly, he could very well see a rise to 88. At worst, a very solid 87 but you could sell if you have better prospects. Lanus: - currently 12th Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps)* - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict * - 2010 stats include Clausura stats and Copa Libertadores stats Agustin Marchesin (GK - 21) - 14(0) - 76 ---> 82 ---> 85 - KEEP Not my favourite 'keeper, but he is still young and learning his trade. Regular in the league and the Copa Libertadores and on course to hit 85/86 next time around. Hernan Grana (RB - 24) - 9(2) - 80 ---> 84 ---> 86 - KEEP Good full-back and now the undisputed first-choice at RB. Should hit 86 next time and then potentially 87/88 in the future. Cristian Menendez (Fwd - 22) - 3(6) - 78 ---> 82 ---> 82/83 - KEEP/SELL Not figuring as much as he did in the Apertura, so no noticable rise next time. Patience needed. Gonzalo Castillejos (CF - 24) - 8(6) - 76 ---> 83 ---> 85 - KEEP/SELL In and out of the Lanus side but starts their most important games (Copa Libertadores). Might get a small rise next time, but nothing more than 85/84. Not the greatest player but he could hit 86/87 if you're patient. Newell's Old Boys: - currently 11th Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps)* - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict * - 2010 stats include Clausura stats and Copa Libertadores stats Nahuel Roselli (RB/RM - 24) - 6(1) - 80 ---> 83 ---> 83 - SELL Not starting as much in 2010, stays next time around. Juan Insaurralde (CB - 25) - 11(0) - 85 ---> 87 ---> 87 - KEEP/SELL Good defender who had a great Apertura, but has probably seen his max for a good while yet. Sell/trade if you have better and don't need him. Alexis Machuca (CB - 19) - 2(1) - 70 ---> 83 ---> 83 - PATIENTLY KEEP Not regularly starting now, so no rise next time. Potential to take over as first-choice CB in the future, as well as a move to Europe. Ignacio Fideleff (CB - 20) - 1(0) - 77 ---> 80 ---> 80 - PATIENTLY KEEP No rise next time but a first-teamer in the future (possibly when Schiavi retires). Pablo Franco Dolci (RM/CM - 26) - 6(2) - 78 ---> 82 ---> 83 - MAYBE SELL Could see another small rise next time, but nothing to really shout about. I'd cash in, personally. Mauro Formica (AM/Fwd - 21) - 12(0) - 84 ---> 86 ---> 86/87 - KEEP Nearing his maximum level at Newell's (87, maybe 88). Too intriguing a talent to sell right now, with faint interest from abroad. Joaquin Boghossian (CF - 22) - 11(0) - 80 ---> 85 ---> 86 - KEEP/SELL The revelation of the Apertura is finding it tougher in the Clausura. Should still get another small rise next time, but he's calmed since exploding into Argentina. Possible move to Europe in the summer. Racing Club: - currently 15th Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps) - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict Jorge De Olivera (GK - 27) - 11(0) - 75 ---> 82 ---> 85 - KEEP Certain number one in goal and is a decent 'keeper as well. Should rise to 85ish next time if Racing stay up, which they should do. Brian Lluy (RB/RM) - 7(0) - 78 ---> 82 ---> 84 - KEEP Not an undisputed first-choice just yet but he sees a fair bit of action. Can rise to 83/84 next time, worth hanging on to for now. Matias Martinez (CB - 22) - 6(0) - 82 ---> 84 ---> 85 - KEEP Was dropped when Ayala came in but has now won his place back. If Racing survive, he's rising again and has potential to go further. Lucas Aveldano (CB - 24) - 10(0) - 83 ---> 84 ---> 85 - KEEP A near ever-present this season. If Racing stay up, should see a similar rise next time around, if that's good for you. Can go further in the future. Sebastian Grazzini (AM - 29) - 0(6) - 76 ---> 80 ---> 80 - SELL Just six sub appearances in 2010, get rid. River Plate: - currently 16th Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps) - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict Maximiliano Coronel (CB - 20) - 1(1) - 80 ---> 82 ---> 82 - KEEP/SELL Barely figuring in 2010, will stay next time. Better young, defensive prospects out there. Rodrigo Rojas (AM/RM - 21) - 10(0) - 83 ---> 84 ---> 85 - KEEP Has been a regular since arriving from Olimpia, but hasn't been the answer to River's problems thus far. Will probably get another small rise next time. Mauro Alberto Diaz (AM/Wing - 19) - 1(4) - 82 ---> 83 ---> 83 - PATIENTLY KEEP Won't be rising next time but can slowly develop into a starter in the future. Can sell in uncompetetive set-ups. Gustavo Bou (RM/AM - 20) - 0(3) - 78 ---> 80 ---> 80 - PATIENTLY KEEP Similar predicament to Mauro Diaz above. Daniel Villalba (Fwd/AM - 17) - 5(4) - 72 ---> 80 ---> 82 - ***MUST KEEP*** In and out of the side and not wowing the world just yet, but has bags of potential. Will see another small rise next time, but patience is needed here. Rosario Central: - currently 19th Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps) - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict Hernan Galindez (GK - 23) - 11(0) - 74 ---> 78 ---> 82 - KEEP Still deputising while Broun recovers from a serious injury. Will rise into the low 80's next time, but shall likely retreat to the bench as soon as Broun returns. Guillermo Burdisso (CB - 21) - 10(0) - 82 ---> 86 ---> 86 - ***MUST KEEP*** Already capped by Argentina and a move to Italy in the Summer is inevitable, with Lazio being strongly linked. Potentially 88/89 within a couple of changes. Nahuel Valentini (CB/RB - 20) - 7(2) - 75 ---> 80 ---> 82/83 - KEEP Already supassed the number of starts he had in the Apertura, so set for another rise. Gervasio Nunez (LM/LB - 22) - 10(0) - 82 ---> 84 ---> 85/84 - KEEP/SELL One of Central's better performers this season for me. Potential rise may be dependent on Rosario staying up or not. Jonathan Gomez (RM/CM - 20) - 9(0) - 77 ---> 84 ---> 85/84 - KEEP/SELL Talented kid but has several flaws to his game. Rosario in danger of relegation which could affect a potential small rise. Mario Paglialunga (CM/DM - 21) - 10(0) - 82 ---> 84 ---> 85/84 - KEEP/SELL Has been a near ever-present this season but part of a struggling Central side in the Clausura. Faint European interest from average sides. Lucas Moya (Wing/Fwd - 23) - 1(0) - 72 ---> 80 ---> 80 - SELL Nothing special, pure money-spinner for me. San Lorenzo: - currently 17th Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps) - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict Pablo Migliore (GK - 28) - 11(0) - 84 ---> 86 ---> 86 - KEEP/SELL Solid 'keeper and a solid 86. Pablo Pintos (RB/RM - 22) - 9(0) - 84 ---> 86 ---> 86 - KEEP Very good player who can rise again in the future, just not next time. Sebastian Emanuel Gonzalez (Wing/Fwd - 18) - 3(4) - 75 ---> 78 ---> 81 - ***MUST KEEP*** Slowly working his way into the side and shall see another small rise next time. Exciting prospect. Fabian Bordagaray (Fwd/Wing - 23) - 8(3) - 76 ---> 82 ---> 84 - KEEP Regular but lacks goals to add to his resume. Shall probably hit 84ish next time for a goal-shy San Lorenzo. Tigre: - currently 8th Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps) - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict Maxi Oliva (LB/CB - 20) - 4(3) - 74 ---> 80 ---> 80 - PATIENTLY KEEP Promising young defender who has appeared for the Argie youths in the past. Has had his Clausura cut short through injury so he shall not rise next time. Carlos Fondacaro (LB/RB - 22) - 0(0) - 75 ---> 78 ---> 78 - MAYBE SELL Still on loan from Boca Juniors I believe and, although he's not currently playing right now, I'd be a little bit reluctant to sell him. Maybe wait until next season and then get rid. Lucas Oviedo (RM - 24) - 0(1) - 77 ---> 80 ---> 80 - MAYBE SELL Can't tell you a whole lot about this guy because I don't recall seeing much of him in the past. Peripheral figure this Clausura, so maybe get rid. Velez Sarsfield: - currently 4th Key: Name (Position - Age) - 2010 starts(sub apps)* - previous rating - current rating - next rating - verdict * - 2010 stats include Clausura stats and Copa Libertadores stats Gaston Diaz (RB/RM - 22) - 9(2) - 83 ---> 86 ---> 86/87 KEEP Really like this kid and he can sew up the RB spot for some time to come. Depending on how far Velez go in the Copa Libertadores, he has a decent shot at a rise to 87 next time. Nicolas Otamendi (CB/RB - 22) - 8(0) - 86 ---> 88 ---> 89 - ***MUST KEEP*** Not a lot to say. Fantastic defender, Argentine international and a dead-cert to be starting at the WC in the summer (barring injury). Move to Europe inevitable and his Madrid-based agent gives you a clue as to where he's headed. Franco Razzotti (DM/CB - 25) - 5(4) - 85 ---> 87 ---> 87 - KEEP/SELL Decent enough player but he's very much the squad player this Clausura. A solid 87 for the next couple of changes unless he gets a bad injury. Jonathan Cristaldo (Fwd - 21) - 0(1) - 85 ---> 86 ---> 86 - KEEP/SELL Good, young striker with potential for the future, but he'll level out as an 86 for a while now. With the arrival of Silva, he's quite a way down the pecking order in 2010. Santiago Tanque Silva (CF - 29) - 9(3) - 87 ---> 88 ---> 89 - KEEP Scoring goals for fun once more in the Clausura, just like he did in the Apertura. Should have gotten his 89 last time around; he'll certainly get it this time. - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - NB: All rating predictions and verdicts are subject to change.

    A resplendent Thorgan Hazard in Belgium's kit Full Name: Thorgan Hazard Date Of Birth: 29th March 1993 (18) Nationality: Belgian Club: RC Lens Position: Winger Squad Number: NA Honours: None, Belgian U17, U19 Caps SM Rating: Not On DB Predicted SM Rating: 75 Potential SM Rating: ★★★★★★★★★★ - 92+ Potentially The New: Eden Hazard/Franck Ribery OK, so we have all heard of Eden Hazard, the super talented young Belgian who's taken the footballing world by storm, starred for Lille in his teens, been courted by Real Madrid, Arsenal, Inter Milan et al, has drawn comparisons to the legendary Zinedine Zidane and has broken into the Belgian National Team, all accomplished by the ripe old age of 18. Well the Hazard family have another absolute gem coming through (and incidentally; have yet another potential wonderkid in Ethan Hazard, still in Belgium) in second born son Thorgan, tipped by both Lens coach Jean-Guy Wallame and brother Eden to be even better than the emerging 18 year old. Thorgan comes from a family steeped in football heritage, aside from the obvious his mother was a referee and his father Thierry played briefly as a professional for AFC Tubize. Like Eden, Thorgan Hazard was scouted and snapped up by a French Ligue Un team, in this case it was for the eternal rivals of OSC Lille: Lens. At 14 he was turning out for Lens' U17s, and has since featured twice for the reserves; managing an assist into the bargain and is a solid starter for their U19s. Of course comparisons were drawn between the two brothers, and this wasn't to be unnoticed by Belgium Under 17s coach Bob Browaeys who has called up the tricky dual flanked winger on nine occasions, starting him six times and recieving four assists and one goal in return. Alongside Rits, Raman and Arslanagic, he is one of the youngsters tipped for the very top of the footballing spectrum by his international coach who had this to say (Translated using Babelfish, anything *starred* is my translation of anything that didn't translate): Belgian U17 Coach: Bob Browaeys Already his talents have been spotted by much bigger clubs, with Barcelona believed to be checking up on him regularly after youth coach Alejandro Garcia was spotted talking with club officials and Hazard after a training session in October. Despite attracting attention from European giants Hazard has his feet planted firmly on the ground, and has ambitions only to play for Lens (at the moment...!), who he is expected to turn out for after his seventeenth birthday in March; when he will be promoted to the senior squad alongside Geoffrey Komdogbia. Despite starting out as an attacking midfielder, Thorgan has found himself appearing as an out and out winger down both flanks; showing versatility and ambidextous ability which will eb perfectly suited to the French game, where he will have to compete with Boukari, Roudet and Doumeng for a starting berth. n_TFlYDNSGw Typical Youtube compilation of Thorgan - worth a look! UPDATE: Thorgan now has a Professional contract with Lens. Signed in the Summer of '10, it concludes in July 2013 and notched up his first ever 'real' appearance for Lens' first team in which he scored their only goal in a 1-1 draw in a friendly with Belgian side K.S.V. Roeselare. Technically if the French fourth division was on the database, Thorgan would already be on the SM database. Since the start of the 10/11 season, he's been a mainstay in the RC Lens Championnat de France team (the equivalent of our 'reserve teams', however the league itself is the equivalent of League 2). His impressive form lead to the full Lens team calling him up to the subs' bench for the home clash against Bordeaux in May, however despite winning 1-0, Hazard wasn't called upon; although 11/12 is finally set to be the season in which the youngster becomes a fully fledged member of RC Lens' first squad.After coming of age at 18, Thorgan was quickly thrust into the Belgian U18 side, although he only managed to play one game in which he scored one and assisted the other as the Belgians beat Ukraine's U18s 2-1. Given his impressive debut, Thorgan jumped up immediately to the U19 side and debuted against Belarus in February. He scored the only goal in a 1-0 win, a 25 yard half volley just after half time. In qualifying for the 2011 UEFA European Under-19 Football Championships he played every minute of Belgium's three matches in stage one qualification, assisting two out of the four goals in the matches - of which he scored one himself which turned out to be an 88th minute winner in their 3-2 win over Croatia past Chelsea's Matej Delac. Thorgan Hazard In action for Lens' Reserves So Belgium emerged unbeaten with Hazard Mk.2 as the star of the show, but they failed to replicate their form in the (ongoing, as it is) Euro U19 Championships in Romania. Belgium's initial match against Spain, red hot favourites for the Championships, was delayed due to bad weather, forcing the replay a day later. Belgium were trounced 4-1, but Thorgan notched up the assist for Belgium's sole goal. Two 1-1 draws against Serbia and Turkey later and Belgium are out of the U19s. Thorgan played every minute, and despite an assist failed to impress in his latter two appearances. Interestingly however, both Hazard and Brugge's Maxime Lestienne have been tipped to move up to for the Belgian U21s - so watch this space!

    Exactly 9 months since the last post on the original thread, I thought it fitting to wet your appetites some more, just a little. I still receive a number of PMs regarding risers, so this should keep my inbox empty for a couple of weeks. The ratings are based upon both statistics, and performances, as I watch both leagues with regularity. However, first and foremost, they are based on how the Researchers are going to review them. I don't agree with all the ratings, but, they are pretty much exactly what SM will give them. Feel free to ask questions, I will have pretty much everything in Argentina covered, and I have a slight inkling that a moody Brazil fanatic will be around sooner or later to answer and argue all points Brazilian.

So players near this interval should be the biggest risers as they will play most of the games in the season. Argentina and Chile were re-checked so they are closer to the real.

    Mid-Season Review Took me long enough to find the time for this. All that schoolwork and soccer and family reunions and socializing and dilly dallying is over now - for the most part. To take advantage of this time, I chose to do a review of what has happened thus far involving some of the most interesting sides in Ligue 1 and my views on how the rest of the season could unfold for them, as well as some discussion on the transfer window. Anyway, I have nothing better to do than ruffle through pages and pages of statistics. Enjoy. Crème de la Crème 2 August, 2008. A mere week before the 2008-09 season of Ligue 1 kicks off, Olympique Lyonnais, who once again reigned victorious in the 2007-08 Ligue 1 season and the Coupe de France, face the Ligue 1 runners-up Bordeaux, who finished the season four points behind the champions, in the Trophée de Champions, the French equivalent of the English Community Shield. Lyon, the favorites, are intent on lifting the title for the seventh successive time, to match their glorious seven-season title streak in the league. The match, goalless by the end of extra-time, must be decided on penalties, and a failure by Lyon center-back Cris to convert his opportunity hands Bordeaux their first ever Trophèe de Champions and ends Lyon's streak. The Bordeaux victory is a brow-raising one, a mysterious precursor to the end of an era. 30 May 2009. Caen are relegated to Ligue 2 as they fall victim to FC Girondins de Bordeaux, who creep by with just a goal in their favor. Bordeaux, who win only by a single goal from Gouffran, lift the Ligue 1 title for the first time in a decade. After seven years of complete dominance of the top tier of French football by Olympique Lyon, Bordeaux ascend to the throne. Their goal above all is to succeed Lyon and reign supreme. It is now 2010, and the reigning champions have not failed to live up to their hopes and their fans' expectations thus far. We could use a progress report. The first seven weeks of this season for them yielded not a single loss in the league. In all competitions, Les Girondins pulled off a gargantuan feat, a series of twenty-two games without a single defeat, between March and October. It required a shock result from at the Stade Geoffrey Guichard, when Saint-Etienne hosted them, for the champions - who, by the way, also lifted the Trophèe de Champions a second time after defeating Coupe de France champions EA Guingamp - to finally succumb to defeat. Even then, all competitions considered, Bordeaux have only lost three times since that match: a 1-0 loss to Auxerre the following week for the same reason as the first loss (We will explore this later when we examine things.), a defeat at the hands of Lille, and one against Valenciennes for the same reason again. It is indeed worth noting as well that Bordeaux won every single one of their group stage matches in the UEFA Champions League except for one, a 1-1 draw against Juventus. How is Bordeaux exerting such a superior presence over its contenders? First, we must look at this from a broad scope and find a general idea before we examine the specifics. Bordeaux, of course, are currently at the top of Ligue 1. Last season, they were 2nd around this point, so there has been positive change. They have 43 points in the league, 9 more than 2nd place Lille. Despite there goal count of 32 being slightly inferior to their current underclassmen, Bordeaux have the best defensive record, only having conceded a dozen goals this season. Only three goals have been conceded at home. Now to the specifics. Here, we can find some hard evidence. The best way to understand how they are succeeding is to look at how they are not: the defeats must be examined first, and inferences need to be made on these observations. These are the four games that Bordeaux lost this season, including interesting facts: Saint-Etienne 3-1 Bordeaux Saint-Etienne scored first, in the 8th minute. Bordeaux did not have Gourcuff. Chamakh and Cavenaghi came on only as second-half substitutes. Possession, which favored Bordeaux, had clearly no effect on the result. Bordeaux are playing away. Auxerre 1-0 Bordeaux Auxerre often rely on stalwart defending, launching counter-attacks to score. Gourcuff was again absent until the 70th minute. Chamakh and Cavenaghi, however, started. This happened to be the game right after their last defeat. Possession again was inversely related to the scoreline. The only goal was a penalty. Bordeaux are playing away. Lille 2-0 Bordeaux Bordeaux have Gourcuff and Chamakh starting. Lille are in good form, and soon prove it with a run of spectacular performances still ongoing. Bordeaux are playing away. Bordeaux 0-1 Valenciennes Bordeaux are at home now. Chamakh is injured and taken off in the first half, while Gourcuff is absent altogether. Not only does possession hugely favor Bordeaux, but this time so do shots. VA score an early goal 7 minutes in. This happened to be just one week after losing to Lille. We can draw from the first three games that Bordeaux are a tad weaker away from home. This does not explain everything, though, as they have won many away games. Gourcuff and Chamakh seem to have highly influential roles. When Gourcuff did not play in the first, second, and fourth loss, Bordeaux lost. Chamakh's absence can be connected to the first and last games. This is no surprise, considering that Chamakh, with 6 goals, is the team's top scorer, and Gourcuff, with 6 assists and 5 goals, is the top player overall in the team. The third game is a valid defeat for Bordeaux, but it must be taken into consideration that Lille have, statistically, the most productive attack in the league. Therefore, Bordeaux in a way can be partially "excused" from losing while still having Gourcuff and Chamakh. Also, only three times have Bordeaux conceded an early goal (In this case, a goal must be within the first 15 minutes to count as such.), and two of those times resulted in a loss. The other time shook up Bordeaux a lot during their one-goal win against TFC. Top this off with the fact that Bordeaux cannot seem to capitalize efficiently on possession, which they often dominate, and the conclusion reached is that Bordeaux's attacking play is easily undermined when they concede before scoring and when they are without their stars. Ultimately, we can say - through deductive reasoning - that the driving force in Bordeaux is highly psychological and technical: there is a slight reliance on playing at home, which is not surprising, and a massive moral reliance on the partnership of Gourcuff and Chamakh to inspire their team's attacking play and make the most out of the possession they get, as without these guys, the team virtually gives up and cannot create anything, regardless of their statistical dominance. What, then, is the ultimate fate of Bordeaux? The answer is simply down to the Chamakh saga. Those who read my transfer updates know how much of a nuisance it is (or at least to me) to see "Chamakh this" and "Chamakh that" and "Chamakh here" and "Chamakh there". The cold, hard truth is that if Chamakh leaves, Bordeaux will, literally, lose about 50% of their chances of making the most of what they have. All for about £4-6 million. If Chamakh stays this January, Laurent Blanc can sit back and relax, as he will have very little to worry about with his team just about guaranteed a second consecutive championship. However, with Chamakh already claiming that, even if he stays until the Summer, he will not sign a new contract, Bordeaux's possible hopes of a third successive title are seriously disrupted. The effect it would have on Bordeaux is staggering. Suddenly, Chamakh has just become one of the most valuable players in Ligue 1. So, if Bordeaux, whether by a drop in form for one of these two stars or by the departure of one of them, are not to rise victorious come the month of May, who will? Not Just a Lil' Club! Enter LOSC Lille Métropole, the brainchild of Rudi Garcia and the institution of kickin'… butt. Many of you who follow my thread recall my extensive analysis of Lille. Here is the link: http://forum.soccermanager.com/showpost.php?p=857061&postcount=1441. As it is unnecessary for me to repeat myself, I will only recapitulate on what was discovered in that analysis. The following held true about Lille: 1.) They have a very balanced attack, with a wide range of players taking shots and scoring, rather than having a sole "target-man", which was proven to be an inefficient method of play. Examples include the dependence of TFC on Gignac, Monaco on Nenê, Nice on Rémy, and Le Mans on Le Tallec - in all cases, these players took the most shots for their clubs, so much so that not one else did, implying a lack of team effort (Instead, the teams that seemed to do best in their attacking play all had multiple players in the top-30 list of shot-takers.). 2.) A huge factor influencing Lille is home advantage. Lille have been much worse away than at home, but thanks to their stunning home record, they have been able to stay alive and lay waste to any visitors. In fact, only once, in their opening day match against Lorient, have Lille failed to make do of the atmosphere at the Stadium Lille-Métropole. 3.) Lille can thank their latest manager, Rudi Garcia, for a number of reasons. Yes, these players are doing a lot on the pitch, but Garcia has done well to make sure they could - for just £8 million he brought in Gervinho, £10 million less than the amount received from Bastos' departure. His keeping of Rami has also proved effective, and Landreau has worked wonders for Lille since replacing Malicki for a meager price. 4.) I did not make this point clearly in my analysis, and I think I should accentuate it here. Fitness has been absolutely no concern for Lille, who are receiving little to no injuries to their players. The months of November and December have been the roughest months all season, and once the season resume, teams will no longer be playing two to three times a week. Lille, however, seem to have fed on this fitness concern. They peculiar immunity to sustaining injuries has been a major beneficent in their massive victories in December. Simply said, while every other team is bickering about replacements and injuries and the wear-and-tear of the season, Lille has taken advantage of this time very effectively, staying fit and thrashing unfit sides. The future of Lille may lie in just that - the season match schedule. The winter break did not just give teams a break after being marauded by Lille; it is a signal to all teams that there will be much fewer games than before, meaning fitness for many sides may not be as big a concern. The result is a smaller advantage for Lille, as they will be less able to exploit those shrinking concerns. Additionally, the strong teams that Lille played during the first half of the season were all visiting teams, so the second half will yield a number of games in which Lille will be playing away against serious opposition - especially Lyon and Bordeaux. Lille's chances of robbing Bordeaux of a second consecutive title are existent, but they may diminish as time wears on, unless Garcia adapts to the more balanced half of the season, perhaps through transfer window activity or something else. Time will tell. I Used to Rule the World… Seas would rise when I gave the word; now every morning I sleep alone, sweep the streets I used to own... Sorry, I'm a Coldplay fan. Anyway, we now turn our gazes to a gloomier side of Ligue 1, to the scowling bunch of fellows at the Stade Gerland who once were the unchallenged, unthreatened seven-time champions of France but now since Olympique Lyonnais. The tragedy of OL is no abrupt end to a steady reign, though. Lyon, in fact, have been following a very hill-like pattern since rising to dominance. Currently, Lyon have only 30 points in the league, after 19 matches. The table below shows Lyon's mid-season progress in terms of points in their last ten seasons, this season included. Given that Lyon did not succeed in snatching the Ligue 1 title in the 2000/01 and 2008/09 seasons, we can infer that their hopes of reclaiming the title are dim, as their mid-season progress this season is their lowest since before they even embarked on their domination of Ligue 1. This link below leads to the Guardian Stats Centre's "League Pos. Analysis" of Lyon, and their graph clearly show that Lyon are not worse than their past several seasons, but they are declining still. Even their manager, Claude Puel, has somberly commented on his team's situation with little optimism. Puel said to Ligue1.com, "There's no point at looking at top spot, or even a place in the top three at the moment… Firstly, we need to concentrate on our own play, put all the ingredients into the mix... whether it be physical, technical, movement, play simple... play well... then the results will come...” These words are far from hopeful and show the harsh reality of Lyon's progress (or regress, shall I say?) this season. This is not to say that Lyon lack a strong team. The players are there: Lisandro Lopez is inarguably a game-changing goal machine, and Bafetimbi Gomis is just a bit short of him; Toulalan is perhaps the best defensive midfielder in the French top tier; and Hugo Lloris is simply France's current and quite likely permanent goalkeeper. However, the main problem at Lyon has been down to problem that the club failed to assess properly last season: the year-round injury dilemma. The Lyon defense, with the exception of goalkeeper Lloris, has been very shaky from the start, not just plagued with injuries, but actually incompetent towards other teams' offensive plays. In fact, Lyon's attackers have not been so shabby. After all, who can deny Lopez and Gomis in terms of goalscoring instinct? On the attack table, Lyon are currently 4th place, only half a dozen goals from first-place Lille. However, their defensive table standing is a jaw-dropping 13 - they have conceded 26 goals, more than two times as many goals as Bordeaux have conceded, 12. Consider the last decade of French football. In no season, from 2000 to 2010, has Lyon been this low at the mid-season point. This has been the lowest ever mid-season defensive record since Lyon conceded 28 times in 19 weeks back in the 1996/97 season, well over a decade ago. We can find an explanation to this shocking collapse in the squad. Although Cris has - rather - a commanding role, Boumsong is only average and Bodmer is not naturally a defender (The now-central-defender was once a midfielder with a future until his recent change in position at Lyon.). Réveillère is often injured and still is only average when he plays. His replacement, Clerc, cannot seem to stay fit. He, too, is not champions-of-France quality (Chalmé of Bordeaux is easily better than these guys.), and the third in line is Gassama, who is a good prospect, but just too young. Toulalan suffered an injury that stunted the midfield's strength significantly, and for a few games this season the French national team holding defender had to play in the defense due to injuries. Also, the lack of a solid starting eleven could be preventing the team from gelling together correctly. Compare Lyon to Bordeaux, a much more successful team at the moment, to the misfortune of the former, and the effect of a concrete line-up is evident. By looking at the "Analysis" section of each clubs' page on football-lineups.com, we can see apparent differences: Lyon have had three players play at right-back, five at center-back, four at left-back, eight on the right wing, eight on the left wing, eight in the center of midfield, and six in the forward role(s); in contrast, Bordeaux have had only two different players feature at right-back, five at center-back, two at left back, four on each wing, six in the middle, and four in the front. Even more interesting is that, as far as football-lineups.com's interpretations of positions go, Makoun is the only midfielder, left, right or center, to have exceeded ten starts in a single position. In conclusion, Lyon are a team who have fallen victim to both injuries and uncertainties in the team's line-up. Additionally, the pressure exerted on them to redeem themselves and return to the top of Ligue 1 is staggering, and it just might have been the final punch needed to knock them just about out of the title race. Puel nailed it in his interview with Ligue1.com. What Lyon now must do is to completely reconstruct themselves and find a way to revive the spirit that they once played with if they want to get back in this. Mastering the Defensive Game Auxerre currently are 5th in the league, and at a glance, one may want to thank players like the Polish striker Ireneusz Jelen for their offensive productivity. Looks indeed can be very deceptive - it is actually safe to say that Auxerre are the exact opposite of Lyon. The club are a meager 13th place on the offensive table, with just 19 goals scored (Jelen, their top goal scorer, has a modest goal tally of four.). However, they stand second on the defensive table, with only 15 goals conceded, three more than Bordeaux. This defensive superiority has supplied Auxerre with a powerful advantage over many teams. Their play is often based on the counter-attack, unleashing itself to an opposition striving too hard to break the back four. Apparently, this defensive mastery has been highly productive, as Auxerre have not fallen below 7th place since Week 9, and they completed the previous season in 8th place. This current position of 5th could well be their very best position in years. Perhaps Puel could learn something from his Auxerre counterpart, Jean Fernandez, here. Auxerre have one of the more stable back four in the league. Almost every Auxerre game features Hengbart on the right, Gritchting on the left, and Coulibaly and Mignot in the middle. Coulibaly stands as the 5th best defender in the league by L'Equipe's ratings, an Hengbart at one point had the very same spot. In addition, Sorin has been good for them between the posts. Examining AJA's matches this season shows that they have only conceded goals in two of their wins, showing just how formidable their defenders are in shutting out the opposition. Triumphs over attacking teams like Marseille, Bordeaux, and Lille only further support this. Not Mastering the Game at All Introducing Toulouse FC, the most disappointing team of the season by far. Upon examining some of TFC's history and the club's current situation, it becomes quite a wonder as to how a club almost an exact clone of Auxerre in terms of play can be separated so widely from its northern counterpart. The similarities are shocking. The Violets have scored precisely 19 goals, the very same amount as Auxerre. They have conceded 16, only one less than Auxerre have. However, the gulf between the two sides in the general league table is a massive ten positions, with Auxerre holding 5th and Toulouse 15th. The answer may just lay in the tactical and psychological approaches of these two sides. First, the mental half of the game. Obviously, if two sides are scoring and conceding at the same rate, the only factor capable of affecting the league positions of those two sides is the distribution of those goals, something that ultimately boils down to a little aspect of football we call consistency. A glance at the league games TFC have played this season reveals a crystal clear truism of their season: they have been extremely inconsistent. This goes beyond winning and losing streaks; TFC have never, at any time this season, won, lost, or drawn two games in a row. Every win is followed by a loss or draw, every loss by a win or draw, and every draw by a win or loss. Not only are TFC one of the most, if not the most, inconsistent team in the top tier of French football. Although it may be misleading at first, TFC have also been highly consistent, and this consistency has been in terms of the goals they concede. To cut the statistical chatter, when TFC concede goals, most of these goals happen to be in their losses, and the scarcity in the goals they concede mean only one thing: because they do not have all their conceded goals bunched up in a few games, their goals are distributed evenly, leading to more losses. As the phrase goes by some manager whom I cannot recall, "I would rather lose 3-0 once than 1-0 three times". In both cases, three goals are conceded, but in the first case, six league points are spared as opposed to the alternative. Toulouse are that alternative. All this, to wrap it up, is a confusing way to say that Toulouse are just plain inconsistent and they have just happened to concede goals in the wrong games. Toulouse follow a method that just has not managed to work itself out, despite its success last season. The basic Toulouse mindset last season was derived from fundamental inductive reasoning: Gignac scores a lot, so we should always chuck the ball to Gignac. Alain Casanova understood this and responded by assuming a 4-5-1 formation, with Gignac spearheading the team, to maximize output. The tactics worked magic as Gignac finished his season as top goalscorer. This season, Gignac has scored just a quintet of goals this season. He had a dozen at this same time last season, which doubled by the end of the season. Statistically speaking, Gignac should be able only to score about ten goals by May. Gervinho has exceeded that count last month. The problem with Toulouse's ways are not just that they are faulty, but that they are changing. How do we know this? Casanova has switched around midfielders countless times this season, but at no point did he dropped the idea of slamming long balls toward Gignac's side of the pitch and pressuring him to shoot, expecting the striker, who obviously is in bad form, to score. Additionally, Gignac has continued to reign supreme in shots. Five more attempts at goal and APG will have taken a shocking number of 100 shots this season. Remember, he has only scored five times. That puts his scoring success at about one in 20 shots. To compare, Nenê of Monaco has scored ten times in only about 70 shots, a success rate of just one in seven shots. This heavy reliance on Gignac to take just about every shot Toulouse can think of is not just damaging to Gignac's morale, but ridiculous considering its lack of success. Gignac seems to be the key man, here. The striker has loads of pressure to perform exceptionally, and it is obviously getting to him. What is more of a problem, however, is the fact that Toulouse have not opted out of the fling-the-ball-Gignac-and-hope-that-he-will-score-every-twenty-times tactic. The bright side is that others have stepped up to the plate. By that, I mean Moussa Sissoko, the midfield sensation who has so far scored six times from his spot in DM and AM. The guy is just sublime. Still, he is not a striker, and Gignac is still alone at the front. Worth noting is the fact that TFC have no other forward. Pentecote, the closest to even playing, does not make the cut. Could it be that Casanova is currently searching for a striker to possibly partner Gignac, avoiding the catastrophic attacking style his squad is playing with? A two-striker formation would definitely loosen the pressure on Gignac, who, due to Pentecote's incompetence, has had to play week in and week out. I say, give the guy a break and make a two-man attack out of this. Then, Casanova can have Sissoko beside or in front of Capoue or Didot. Just my two cents. At this rate, however, Toulouse are just not finding consistency in their matches and not getting the most out of their squad, which is actually quite formidable. Unless Casanova changes things around, Toulouse will not be able to produce a shock comeback and return to the top half of the table. In Conclusion There are many teams I have not managed to cover, and if I did (or do) cover them all, it would take me an equally long post. Time prevents me from continuing, however. If I feel like it (Your opinions are worthless! ), I will follow this up with a Part 2. I would bet on it, as my next week could be a rather open one for me. Right. Back to the soccer. Rather than introducing any linking ideas, I just want to summarize what may be in store for each of these five clubs. Bordeaux are still favorites for the title, as their unstoppable Gourcuff-Chamakh partnership is about as dangerous as me with ice skates (Interesting story I have, in fact…). However, their major problem is dealing with Chamakh's imminent departure during the Summer. Lille are the favorites if Les Girondins flunk out. They have the greatest attacking unit Ligue 1 has to offer, and Garcia's genius has made them somehow immune to exhaustion. Lyon's chances of success are slim, and will have to seriously fix up their defense and bolster their squad's fitness levels if they want a chance at bringing the Ligue 1 trophy back to the Stade Gerland. Auxerre are currently flying high primarily thanks to a formidable defense and skillful counter-attacks. Toulouse, similar to them in terms of goals scored and conceded, have failed to put up a challenge due to tactics in serious need of revising and some horrendous inconsistent results. Sound good? Better be. Now let me have my sleep. Dammit Ligue 1, you've deprived me of enough sleep!

    That's the whole point of this thread, to mention players that may be risers. Idk about you but I'd rather share information rather than hoard it. Don't get what your issue is. It's not the first time I've suggested new additions to the database or potential risers on this thread. I waited 36 hours before I posted his name. Did the same with Jonathan David too among others. 36 hours is more than enough to get the first bid in.

    Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread GILLETTE SOCCER SATURDAY TURN10 - PREMIER LEAGUE Welcome to our first special addition of "Gillette Soccer Saturday", this will happen on some different occasions throughout the season giving a full report on how all of the clubs have performed throughout the day. We are presenting coverage from all 10 matches in Turn 10 in the Barclays Premier League. The main team of presenters are all here to give full commentary on how the games are going, they include in the studio: Charlie Nicholas, Matt Le Tissier, Paul Merson and Phil Thompson. And, around the other grounds in England for the Division 1 matches include: Bianca Westwood, Kammy, John Salako and Iain Dowie. All ten games can have factors which affect teams at the top and bottom of the table. Show Introduction Stelling: Welcome, there are some cracking games on offer today in the Barclays Premier League, all of which could have major effects at the top and bottom of the league. We have all the goal updates as they come in. Currently at the top of the table sees Plymouth going strong leading the chase ahead of Liverpool and Tottenham. Middlesbrough also are in 4th position and take the final Champions League place. But, struggling at the bottom of the table is North-West side Preston North End and are surrounded in the relegation places currently by Shorpe and Nottm Forest with Aston Villa just hovering over the relegation position. Here are the fixtures for the day... Presenters covering each game: Charlie Nicholas - Manchester United vs Everton Matt Le Tissier - Nottm Forest vs Manchester City Phil Thompson - Tottenham vs Leeds United Paul Merson - Aston Villa vs Plymouth Iain Dowie - West Brom vs Shorpe Bianca Westwood - West Ham vs C.Palace John Salako - Liverpool vs Preston Chris Kamara - Arsenal vs Sunderland Tony Cottee - Middlesborough vs Blackpool David Craig - Colchester vs Sheffield United Charlie Nicholas: Manchester United (14th) vs Everton (4th) This game has the potential to be a cracker, Manchester United have started the season poorly while Everton have surprised many as they have shot into the Champions League places and games like these tonight will really prove whether they are worth the money. Rick will venture into his 300th game as manager of Manchester United and will hope to pick up a big win at the Theatre Of Dreams. Success is the key for big teams like Manchester United but they will need big players like Gareth Bale, Rooney and Ibrahimovic will need to perform. SUPER 6 PREDICTIONS: Phil Thompson - M.United 2-0 Everton Paul Merson - M.United 3-1 Everton Matt Le Tissier - M.United 0-1 Everton Charlie Nicholas - M.United 1-2 Everton Jeff Stelling - M.United 3-0 Everton Matt Le Tissier: Nottm Forest (18th) vs Manchester City (12th) Nottingham Forest have had a slow start to the season, towards the end of last season Nottingham Forest were involved in a relegation battle and were hoping that they could start the season brightly and challenge for a Top 10 position but again they have found themselves in and around the relegtion positions unlike there Mancunian opponents who are currently 12 in the league but have been involved in a poor run of form only picking up 3 points out of a possible 18 points. Although on paper the results haven't been stellar for either side, there is the possibility that it could be a cracking game. SUPER 6 PREDICTIONS: Phil Thompson - Nottm Forest 0-1 Man City Paul Merson - Nottm Forest 2-0 Man City Matt Le Tissier - Nottm Forest 0-0 Man City Charlie Nicholas - Nottm Forest 1-1 Man City Jeff Stelling - Nottm Forest 0-1 Man City Phil Thompson: Tottenham (2nd) vs Leeds United (10th) Tottenham are expected to pick up a consecutive victory tonight against Leeds United and challenge for the top spot. You look at the performances from Tottenham and they have been fantastic and it will be a shock if they cannot emulate some of those performances into todays game and win the game against Leeds easily... (Paul Merson during this preview, described these comments about Leeds as "harsh", Phil reacted to this by saying..) I personally think Leeds will have to get there tactics spot on to pick a victory. Benzema for Tottenham has been in sublime form and he should pick up his 10th goal in the league today, under the belief that he starts. But, in fairness to Leeds they have performed well this year and with a few victories they can easily find themselves up there with some of the best. SUPER 6 PREDICTIONS: Phil Thompson - Tottenham 3-0 Leeds Paul Merson - Tottenham 1-0 Leeds Matt Le Tissier - Tottenham 2-1 Leeds Charlie Nicholas - Tottenham 1-1 Leeds Jeff Stelling - Tottenham 0-1 Leeds Paul Merson: Aston Villa (17th) vs Plymouth (1st) Plymouth have shown all the top teams in this division that they are the team to watch this year and that they should be feared, Plymouth have had an amazing start to the season and it is expected that they will pick up another 3 points against a relegation threatened Aston Villa side. Villa have had an unfortunate start to the season but there are many teams around them that could possibly fall into the relegation spots if they are able to pick up some wins. SUPER 6 PREDICTIONS: Phil Thompson - Aston Villa 0-2 Plymouth Paul Merson - Aston Villa 0-3 Plymouth Matt Le Tissier - Aston Villa 1-3 Plymouth Charlie Nicholas - Aston Villa 0-1 Plymouth Jeff Stelling - Aston Villa 0-1 Plymouth ---------------------------------------------------------------- 8:00 PM - ALL GAMES KICK OFF 8:15 PM Stelling: And we're off to Anfield, we hear there is a goal and it's come from a certain German starlet? John Salako: Yes, Andre Schurrle has put Liverpool ahead and infact scored the first goal of the evening in Division 1, Andre linked up brilliantly with his companion in midfield Aaron Hunt who is also from Germany and Schurrle cut onto the outside and tried his luck with the outside of his boot and struck a curling strike in the right corner of the net and the keeper had no chance! 15 minutes gone. Liverpool 1-0 Preston North End rOgdLQWM03M 8:20 PM Stelling: Currently a silent evening in Division 1 for the football, many teams coming close but a lot struggling to pick out that final goal at the moment. All games currently except at Anfield all still goalless. 8:25PM Stelling: Finally! Another goal tonight, this time we go to The Hawthorns, reporting for us tonight at West Brom is Iain Dowie, who's got on the scoresheet Iain? Iain Dowie: It's Luis Suarez, the man who has made 155 appearances for this club has scored his 37th goal, the goal came from a free-kick, Joel Matip brought down the Swiss international Inler, this lead to Gonzalo Castro placing in a lovely cross which Suarez latched onto and headed into the net. 25 minutes on the clock. West Brom 1-0 Shorpe 8:26PM Stelling: Now the goals are starting to come in, we're off to Old Trafford now. Come on Charlie, tell us who's found the net. Charlie Nicholas: Oooooh it's the main man again! Zlatan Ibrahimovic, what a star, what a footballer. He is Mr consistent! (the whole Gilette Soccer Saturday team laugh in hysterics) Paul Merson: Mr Consistent??!!! Charlie Nicholas: "7 goals in 11 games now for Man United, that's consistent. The goal came after Bale danced around the defence before he placed a fantastic ball into the box and Ibra powerfully headed in! United 1-0 up against Everton!" 8:28 - 8:32PM *GOAL UPDATES* WEST BROM 1-1 SHORPE (M. DIAME 28) LIVERPOOL 2-0 PRESTON (L.MESSI 30) MANCHESTER UNITED 2-0 EVERTON (M.HUMMELS 32) 8:36PM Stelling: Most of the goals have gone into the net in the North-West of England with Liverpool and Manchester United both netting 2 goals each at the moment but we now go to the North-East as we're hearing there has been a goal at Middlesborough, but Tony Cottee, who has gone ahead in this game. Tony Cottee: It's been a tightly contested affair here at the moment between Middlesborough and Blackpool but it's Middlesborough here who have broke the deadlock here through Dirk Kuyt whose shot luckily deflects off the Blackpool defender and he has put Middlesborough ahead 1-0! Middlesborough 1-0 Blackpool 8:45 PM - HALFTIME 9:00PM SECOND HALF STARTS: 9:02PM Stelling: We're now off to Old Trafford again, is it Game Over or Game On. Charlie Nicholas, we come to you again. Charlie Nicholas: It is Game On! Everton have found new life after half time and the goal comes from one of there backup strikers, Kevin Gameiro, they were awarded a penalty after he was brought down by Pique, Kevin struck it and it blasted into the back of then net, Man United 2-1 Everton. Stelling: If he can keep up these performances he might be in with a shout of making a few more appearances this year for Everton, he has struggled to pick up a first team place with Dzeko and Ba chosen ahead of him. Manchester United 2-1 Everton 9:05 PM: Stelling: And now we're seeing a shock result come to order here, Phil, tell us more about it. Phil Thompson: This has really surprised me, Leeds have took the lead here after Marco Reus dribbled past the 3 "rocks" at the back in Alves and Bonucci. Marco, who I have been a big fan of has been in fantastic form this season and if anyone was going to score first today it would be him! The German attacking midfielder has put Leeds 1-0 ahead! Reus celebrates in fantastic fashion shushing the North London crowd. 9:08 - 9:17PM *GOAL UPDATES* MANCHESTER UNITED 3-1 SHORPE (G.BALE 53) ARSENAL 0-1 SUNDERLAND (A.SZALAI 62) WEST BROM 1-2 SHORPE (DIEGO MILITO 62) 9:21-9:22PM Stelling: Woah. Just as we've returned from a game in the Championship, I think my ears are unable to think after hearing Phil Thompson screaming as I'm hearing that 2 goals in 2 minutes have gone in?! Phil Thompson: Just as Lavezzi pulled back an equaliser for Tottenham Hotspurs after a lovely wonderstrike, James Rodriguez goes down the other end, the attack just after the goal and nets one into the bottom right hand corner of the goal after some lovely teamwork with his Colombian team-mate Falcao. TOTTENHAM 1-2 LEEDS 9:23PM: Stelling: Just as we thought there could have been a possible comeback before for Everton, it really is GAME OVER now. A typical Gareth Bale wonder-strike Charlie? Charlie Nicholas: It certainly is. This boy loves to strike it from a distance and boy has he done it again! He's got his second goal of the day but I'm sure he'll favour this goal to his previous goal as this was fantastic. Here it is now! Oooooft. Brilliant. ipyVUBRJwBc 9:29 - 9:33PM Stelling: It's not been an exciting evening of football has it Bianca until now? Bianca Westwood: I don't know where these two goals have just instantly arrived from Jeff? In the first half, both teams were really struggling to get any chances on goal and in the 2nd half we have slowly started to see the potential of both sides, especially West Ham and that has been known now as Rakitisky and Lukaku have both found the net after heading in goals to pick up the 3 points for West Ham. The fans have been waiting to cheer all evening and now they have there opportunity to, just 12minutes left of the 90 to go, it's West Ham 2-0 Crystal Palace. 9:36 - 9:43 Stelling: And Liverpool have gone from strength to strength in this game and really found there feet haven't they John? John Salako: Magical Messi. He just dances around the defence, it is lovely to watch and wait, GOOOOOAAAAAAALLLLLLLLLLLLLL It is now 4-0 for Liverpool, Thomas Muller has latched onto the cross from Messi and helped the crowd still here at Anfield to roar in jubilation. This will now put them 2nd in the league and will certainly help there goal difference, they have been brilliant today. (Everyone in the studio laughs at John's sudden roar as the 4th goal went in) Liverpool 4-0 Preston North End 9:45PM: FULL TIME. Final Scores: Tottenham Hotspur 1-2 Leeds United Aston Villa 0-1 Plymouth Argyle Arsenal 0-2 Sunderland Nottm Forest 0-0 Manchester City West Brom 1-2 Shorpe Man United 4-1 Everton Colchester 0-0 Sheffield United Middlesborough 2-0 Blackpool Liverpool 4-0 Preston North End West Ham 2-0 Crystal Palace League Table 1 Plymouth Argyle, 31 (+5) 2 Liverpool, 28 (+4) 3 Middlesborough, 28 (+3) 4 Tottenham Hotspur, 27 (+11) 5 Sunderland, 26 (+12) 6 Blackpool, 25 (+8) 7 Everton, 25 (+2) 8 Crystal Palace, 24 (+3) 9 Leeds United, 23 (+11) 10 Arsenal, 22 (+8) 11 Sheffield United, 21 (-3) 12 Manchester United, 20 (-2) 13 Manchester City, 19 (+6) 14 West Ham United, 18 (-5) 15 West Brom, 17 (-6) 16 Colchester United, 16 (-8) 17 Nottingham Forest, 14 (-10) 18 Aston Villa, 13 (-4) 19 Shorpe United, 13 (-14) 20 Preston North End, 8 (-21)

    Re: English Championship 7046 Match Report/Tranfer Gossip Thread Promotions and Relegations decider Teams getting promoted to the Premier league from the Championship 1st-Charlton Athletic going up as Champions with 1 game to go-Charlton have been the powerhouse of the Championship this year and will be battling for there lifes next season in a more tougher division.Can they survive ? It's all about tactics and luck my friend.Belhanda was one of their stand out performers throughout the season. 2nd-Three teams can still get that last Automatic promotion.With Burnley,Wigan and Sunderland all fighting for it.Which one has what it takes to take second ? who will crumble under the pressure ? which one will have to do it all over again next year ?. Playoffs- With Burnley,Sunderland,Wigan all fighting for second.Two of them will end up in the playoffs for sure.Carlisle will join them with only one place up for grabs.Who will get it ? It's between Swansea,West Ham,West Brom and Bury but very unlikely for Bury.I feel Its between West Brom and Swansea.But West Brom have to play table toppers Charlton so it wont be easy. Teams getting Relegated from Premier league to the Championship ®20th- QPR.Not a very good way to have your first season in the premier league end with Relegation.Could you blame the team ? The manager tactics ? or the fact it was a hard division to survive,Personally i feel it was there poor start to the season.Yes they won their first game but after that they didn't win for 17 league games and 12 of them were losts so that is the reason to getting relagated. ®19th-Bolton Wanderers- I blame inconsistency for them.One week they win the next they lose or draw.They only recorded one back to back wins in the league and that is their problem really.I do feel for their manager as he only joined halfway and to save them was a impossible job.Meaning Bolton W are going to be playing Championship football for the first time in 7046 History. 18th- With one place left up for grabs and only 2 teams fighting to avoid it.Chelsea and Norwich are ones who arent trying to survive.Whatever team goes down it would be a shock to division 1.Chelsea prob one of the best teams in the division rating wise could be playing division 2 football which doesn't seem right.But Aaron has had alot of troubles with them this season and its quite a shame for it too happen to him as he is a good manager.On the other Hand.Rob's Norwich are a little team who have came from out of the blue to surprise division 1.Many tipped them for relegation,it could still happen but they are giving a good fight,so credit to you Rob you have built a great team. Teams getting promoted to the N power Championship from League 1 1st- Yeovil Town © - Going to the N power Championship currently being champions in League 1 is always a good way to go up.But the Championship is so much harder.Also voted one of the hardest divisions to get out of.But if history is on their side then they should get promoted easily.Remember Josh's Norwich ? He run away with the division with an average side.But this Yeovil side is not average,they already have 3 90's who over 30's so that should give them experience.I say they will finish in the playoffs. 2nd- Portsmouth - (P) - This division must of been a walk in the park for Yeovil and Portsmouth seeing as Yeovil are 7 points above Portsmouth and Portsmouth have a 9 points advantage of 3rd place Derby.Do Portsmouth have what it takes to battle in division 2 ? I believe they do and the players you should watch out for are Kagawa and KPB and their Top goal scorer Gomis who scored 20 goals and 12 assists with 10 man of the matches.Can he get that form in a tougher division and score 20 goals there ? I think he will get 22 next season and i see Portsmouth around the play offs. Play offs - League 1 play offs is full of competition this year.With Derby already claiming a ticket to the semi finals.But the teams from 4th to 10th are still with a chance to get the last 3 spaces with Millwall;Crystal Palace;Exeter City;Peterbrough United;Hull City;Leicester City and Sheffield Wednesday. Which three teams out of the 7 will get the last 3 spaces ?.This is surely is going to be a breath taking end to the season. Teams getting Relegated to League 1 from Championship ®-20th- Cardiff City - First team to get relegated from the Championship with 1 game to go.Cardiff were relegated last night due to a 5-4 lost to playoff chasers West Brom.After a poor season they are finally going down to league 1 where they will face a challenge where they should get promoted but football isn't that easy is it ? . 19th and 18th - 7 teams are fighting to avoid these places.But two of them,Blackpool and Blackburn are 3 points away from 18th with GD of -5 and -10 they should be safe as 18th has 42 points and -20,but football is a crazy sport so anything can happen.But the teams who are still in it are Coventry;Plymouth Argyle;Watford; Birmingham City and Preston North end.The odds are favorite for Coventry to go down where they have a total of 40 points and are 3 points from safety but can there GD act as a extra point ?.The games too watch are automatic chasers Wigan vs Relegation threaten Coventry and Blackburn Vs Plymouth Argyle you can also add Bury Vs Watford as Bury need to win to have a chance at Playoffs and Watford need a win to assure survival. Teams getting promoted to N power League 1 from N power League 2 1st- Southampton - © They have ran away with this league showing no mercy to the other teams.Southampton are 23 points away from second.They have broken a 7046 history record.Recording 87 points.They may extend this on Wednesday.But the previous holders were Brighton who had 86 points.Well done Rick.But Dag and redbridge hold the most goals scored in division 4 with a total of 112 goals. 2nd- 3 Teams can still get Second with Shrewsbury Town,Brighton and Hove Albion and Northampton Town still fighting.Northampton could of gone second if they didn't suffer a 3-2 lost to 19th place Brentford. Northampton will face bottom of the league Colchester United, Shrewsbury Town face 19th place Brentford and Brighton and Hove Albion face AFC Bournemouth.Will be a good end to season for 1 team and the other 2 will face a play off spot. Play offs- 4 teams fighting for 2 places.Southend United,Burton Albion,Gillingham and Tranmere will fight on the last day for the remaining 2 places.Tranmere have the hardest Job to do as they would need to win atleast 8-0 to get their GD up to the other 3 teams GD.They face Bristol Rovers.Where Burton Albion face Gillingham so i dont think Tranmere can get promoted really as they would need Southend to lose to Chesterfield like 6-0 and Hope Burton and Gillingham to draw.I feel Gillingham and Southend will get play offs.But hope Tranmere can offer something for a action packed last day. Teams getting Relegated to League 2 from League 1 ®-20th- Barnsley take the bate of finishing bottom of division 3.If they had won like 4 of there last 5 games they could of had a chance to survive but it's too late now and League 2 will be tough to get out of now they should start preparing for life in League 2 by cutting down their wage bill as revenue is quite bad. ®-19th- Stockport County - Mr Hammer couldn't save Stockport as they were relegated last night due to a 2-2 draw vs Wallsall.Beckham 14 goals and 9 assists weren't enough to keep them up and they will be playing division 4 football yet again just after they got promoted last season.They also have Arshavin now who should do well in Division 4.So i expect them to get promoted again. 18th- Last spot left to be decided in league 1 and the teams who are involved are Reading,Notts County and Oldham Athletic.It looks almost certain that Oldham are down due to being 3 points away from Reading and Notts County and their poor GD doesn't help them one bit and life doesn't get easier for them as they play champions Yeovil.Will Yeovil let them win ? lets hope not and lets hope they give them a good game.Notts County got promoted last season with Darlo and he has had a tough season to try and keep them up but he has probably just done enough now as they prepare for league 1 again next season.Reading will play already relegated side Stockport where Stockport could bring Reading down with them if Oldham win like 6-0.Crazy stuff has happen as Chelsea did Beat Man utd 5-0 last night to keep their division 1 status alive till the last game.Notts County play Crystal Palace who are chasing playoffs so it wont be an easy game for Darlo's team but a point for him and Reading will keep them up and send Oldham down to League 2.

    A Guide- How to build a team.

    I see many new managers joining setups, then leaving after a couple of bad results. Hopefully this thread will help stop this, as people want to do well in leagues, but end up quitting because they don't know what to do. I will be listing my ideas and suggestions so that maybe, just maybe, new, inexperienced managers who have joined the forum can read this and get on track with their managerial career. And maybe some older members can pick up a couple of tips as well! 1: Getting a good team. This can be easy or hard, as there are more than one way of getting a side you want. The first way is to decide that you will take the first side that is suggested by SM for you, which is extremely simple. I once did this to get myself a decent Valencia in a Spanish Championship. The squad value was just over 200M, and they came with Villa, Ibrahimovic, Reina and Gonzalez, and roughly 20M in the bank. A run down of what I did with them is coming up later. The second way is to search for a club using the search function. This is how I got my Real Madrid, and one of my Internazionale teams. This can get you some really good clubs, like a Barcelona if you're lucky, but most of the time all of them will be managed or offered to someone else, or perhaps even locked. You may decide you want a challenge, and you will get a very poor team and try to transform them, like I did with my Derby side. This is more popular in new setups, and Gold Championships where almost all big clubs are taken within minutes. You could always decide to join a forum filled championship, something like WC10000, EC106 etc etc, which basically guarantees you a test of your managerial skill and know-how. 2: But what to do with them? You've got a club. Know you need to turn them into league winners, but how? Of course you could try to buy Messi, Ronaldo, Iniesta, Xavi, Fabregas, as a lot of people do. This will probably get you nowhere, and many a manager quit once they realise that nobody wants to sell Messi or Ronaldo for 50M and two 88 rated 30 year olds. You should instead be clever. Buy risers, or if you can, some stable high rated players. For an example of how this can be done I present to you my 2nd club, my Derby County. This is my first XI, when everyone is fit and not injured, which, without bragging, isn't half bad. I've had this team for 2 seasons, well, I joined the setup with Derby in the play off final, which I lost, my average was 82, Everton's was 89, and narrowly missed out on promotion last season, again losing in the play off final to my mate's team. My last season has just ended, I won by a very large margin and am comfortably promoted as champions into Division 1. In fact that last season I only lost 3 times in the league, and drew 6 times out of 38 games. This is really not that difficult to do yourself, you've just got to have an idea of what you want to achieve. I knew Derby were alright for the division, they finished 5th without a manager, and although the best player was Mark Viduka (84) who has retired, I thought I could challenge for promotion. I joined Derby in about last September, and so the World Cup was still fresh in my mind (sort of), and this is a big point: You'll do much better as a manager if you actually watch football. I signed Di Maria from Real Madrid for about 12M ( I had 45M in the bank) rated 90, and he was my first signing. I recently sold him for 29.4M, which gave me enough money to buy the last 94 at an external, Higuain. If you watch football programmes like Match Of The Day and it's European equivalents, the Champions League and the Europa League, and some internationals, you'll probably do much better than most managers. The approach I went for with Derby is to make them great. I bought some young players, Di Maria, Higuain, Badstuber (on the bench). But the real success has come from me buying stable, high rated players. If you join an English gameworld, look at the clubs like Inter, Barca, Real Madrid, and you should be able to find players left at them, or the players big clubs like Manchester United or Chelsea have traded off in order to gain higher rated player. For example, Manchester United may have swapped Rooney and Berbatov for Messi, which would leave both of them players ready to be bought in a few weeks. I did this quite well last week, a Barcelona manager in a Spanish game world traded Busquets to Arsenal, and Pedro to Man City, who both now play for me. If you're in a Spanish Championship, Italian Championship or any other like that, just apply the same policy. Of course, in a WC or a GC, it's a lot harder. Go for the unmanaged clubs, you can pick up players easily if the Game world isn't too competitive. Set yourself a realistic target. Do you want to blitz the league? Do you want to challenge for a play off place? Mid-Table finish? Survive relegation? Get relegated then destroy the lower division? Don't think you'll be able to win a Division 1 title with an average starting XI of 89, it won't happen. I would say you'd need an average of about 92 to stand a good chance of winning something. 3: How to get that average up? On the surface, it's ridiculously simple. Just buy high rated players. But don't decide to buy the first high rated player you can find at an external, unmanaged or transfer listed, as they may not be suitable. For example, I could buy Ronaldinho for one of my teams for about 15M. I'm not going to though, he will drop to around 90 from 92 in a few months, he's playing in Brazil where the rating cap is I think 90, which means that there shouldn't be any players rated higher than 90 in that league. Of course SM can't just review the Brazilian league just because Ronny signed for Flamengo, and because Fabiano signed for Sau Paulo. You need to be clever with transfers. Search the forum for players that are going to rise, or use sites such as Soccerway and Imscouting to get information on players, like whether they may be transferred to a bigger club, and how many minutes they've played, and they goals they may or may not have scored. Don't expect that managers will sell you players (especially high rated ones) for just cash, I would never let anyone buy my Messi from my Barca for 50M! Messaging managers is a very good option for getting who you want. Speak formally and politely, make sure your spelling and grammar is god and they will hold you in higher esteem. If someone messaged me saying: " hiya m8 dya wana sell me mesi 4 50bar nd lyk ma 2 bst plyerz?????xoxox" I wouldn't even bother replying. Whereas if someone sent me: " Hi, I was wondering if you would sell me Lionell Messi for 50M and Gourcuff and Briand? Regards, NAME" I would probably tell them that the offer is not good enough, and I would prefer Gourcuff, Lisandro and Lloris and cash for Messi, as I don't want a 92 and an 89 for the best player in the game ( Fictional situation, standard Lyon squad) Don't make yourself seem like a fool. Don't try to buy the really high rated players, go for the ones not many people search for, like Gonzalez, Di Natale, Berbatov, Carvalho. In essence, try to buy stable high rated players. If it's a fairly new setup, search the Lyon, Sevilla, Udinese and other clubs that are normally left unmanaged and try to buy from them, you could get players like Navas, Di Natale, and Gourcuff from them for low cash. 4: Getting a balance. Don't buy players that are young and talented if they all play in the same position. Basically, don't do what I did and buy Muniain, Gotze, Canales, Ilicic, Ananidze all for the same team as starters. It's good for cup matches, but I should've invested more in defence and upfront, I have 2 forwards above 80 (Bojan and Lukaku) and 4 defenders above 84 (Abate, Bonucci, Gonalons and Santon) A good way to achieve balance is to buy versatile players. Take a look at my Valencia team: The versatile players I mean are Busquets, Hummels and Pedro. If Busquets becomes injured, I can move Hummels up to cover him, and vice versa. If Villa or Ibra get injured, Pedro can take their place upfront. This is very useful for teams with small squad sizes, as they may be decimated by injuries and cup matches. My Derby and Valencia only have around 25 players, so it's very important I have players who can cover each over without my Average being let down. 5: The Other Managers Think of this when joining a new gameworld: Yep' date=' you read it right. You should apply this too. Treat every single manager as a complete muppet, even in forum filled setups (They may talk sense, but are they a good manager) That said, I myself didn't start using this until very recently, so I haven't thought of anybody on here as a muppet. This section is important, as what the other managers do can be good and bad for you. For example, you may be in championships where there's a "Player Hogger" someone who has a very large squad and won't sell their players, or someone who has every decent prospect on their shortlist, so that they can try to outbid you. There are a couple of ways to get around managers who shortlist everyone, the first is to distract them with many bids for players you don't really want, so that he/she bids for them. For example, Pedro Leon may be really useful for your team and he's at an external, and is shortlisted by the manager. You could then lodge bids for Ananidze, Ninis, Ilicic and Muniain, as well as Leon, in the hope that he will try to outbid you on one or two of them, and maybe leave Leon alone. Alternatively you could be clever, and look at the times when the managers log in. This could be difficult, as some managers don't have specific times when they log in, like me, I was online at around three-in-the-morning on Tuesday, and I've been on just before midnight. During the rating changes for the main leagues, I'm on before eight AM so I can look at the risers and fallers and talk about them with my mates. Anyway, say this manager is an eleven year old kid, I doubt he'll be on any earlier than three to four PM on weekdays, and online after around nine PM. So you can lodge a bid at around nine-thirty, being pretty confident the pre-teen can't block it. This can be made more difficult when the manager is an adult and is unpredictable to when he/she logs in. Therefore I would advise actively checking their profile pop-up, so that you can have a look to see when they've last logged in. If they haven't been seen for half an hour and it's ten at night, you can be pretty confident that they won't be coming back online, so that's when I would put a bid in. If you're a moral person, you may not like this section, as it involves a bit of trickery. Basically it involves finding a gullible/ not so clever manager, and using them to your advantage. Please note, none of this is against the rules. I wanted an Arsenal side, so I spent a few days looking for one I liked the look of. I found one with around 80M in the bank, and players like David Villa, Aguero, Lucio, Lloris and Ribery. This part is pure luck, but I knew what I was doing, I put a bid in for Pedro who was at Internazionale. My bid was just Ribas Diego, who was rated 93, and Pedro was rated 92. To my joy, this deal was accepted (This was a few days before Diego dropped) and so, I did the best for myself as I could and took advantage of the now ex-Inter manager and practically stole some players from him! [center'][/center] The third deal is not as good for me, but I still think it's a bargain, this league is pretty competitive, and the other manager may have cottoned on to what I was doing. I hasten to add that the other manager was NOT a young child, it was a adult, unless his D.O.B. Was false. So my Arsenal side now had three great players, in exchange for two not so good players, and two better players, who will probably drop. You could do this in your gameworld(s), I can virtually guarantee that there will be a muppet in it, and if you don't mind taking advantage for your own gain, it is a ruthlessly effective way of strengthening your side. A good way to find out which managers are not as hot as you is to look at their club transfers. If you see any that are a bit ridiculous, you have a good chance of having found a muppet. If you're not sure, just post their transfers on the forum and ask everyone what they think. Thanks for reading, I know it's very long, but I hope it helps some people out. New pieces of information may be edited in at some point.

    Please note, this is in no way a complaint, I'm just curious as to whether the "What Can Influence Changes?" on SM Help article is still valid. My reasoning for this post is based on the rating of Lucas. In this post I will try and keep my opinion out of this as much as possible (so no-one can call me bias) and just use facts. Lucas joined Liverpool from Grêmio on 26 July 2007 and was rated 88. This rating was dueto a number of achievments such as him captaining all the Brazillian youth squads up to U20's, winning the Campeonato Brasileiro Série B with Gremio in 2003, winning the Campeonato Gaúcho in 2006 & 2007, and also becoming the youngest ever player to win the Bola de Ouro (Brazilian Footballer of the year). His rating today (Wednesday 16th December) is still 88. This suggests that since he has joined Liverpool he hasn't improved in the slightest. However the article on the online help suggests otherwise. The Online Help states: Since joing Liverpool in 2007, Lucas played has gained International experience. Lucas first featured for Brazil in August 2007 shortly after joining Liverpool. Later in 2008 Lucas got a call up to his first big tournament, and played an important part in Brazil winning a Bronze medal at the Olympics. More recently, in August of this year, Lucas was recalled to the Brazil squad after consistent performences for Liverpool, and has stayed in the squad making a few appearances since. On a domestic level Lucas has also improved a lot. After starting off playing a sub role in his first season, Lucas went on to become an important part of Liverpool's club rotation last year as Liverpool finished second in the Premier League. Due to having one of the best playmakers infront of him, Alonso, Lucas didn't start every game, however he did still play a large portion of Liverpool's games. This year Lucas has started EVERY Premier League game and played every Champions League game (except against Fiorentina as the game was not important). Despite Aquilani being fit, Rafa Benitez has stuck by Lucas due to his impressive league form. Many fans who used to criticise Lucas also now understand that he is a very important part of Liverpool, and has arguably been one of the most consistent players this season. Infact there is stats to back this up - http://www.skysports.com/story/0,19528,11096_2705370,00.html I have been banging on on these forums for ages saying that Lucas has one of the best footballing brains around and is always getting in to great positions helping players find a pass and knowing instantly where he is going to pass it. Now there are stats to show it. This season Lucas has the fifth best passing rate in the Prem and the third best tackler in the Prem. FACT Please always seem to ignore these stats and focus on what the press say about Lucas not scoring enough goals or getting enough assists. But don't they realise he is not that sort of player! Rafa wouldn't play him if he was useless, and these stats prove he is one of the most important players around. So, back to where I was... The article in the SM Help. I've analysed all of the points made a feel since joining Liverpool, Lucas can definetely be said to have: Domestic honours; (runners up at least) Continental honours; International honours; Domestic experience; Continental experience; International experience; Reaching the next stage in their career (e.g proving themselves in a higher division or at a continental/international level). So that's 7 of the 8 things listed. And Lucas has also gratly improved his game since joining Liverpool as the stats show. So why hasn't he risen? I'd also like to compare him with two other players: - Denilson, Arsenal (89) - Anderson, Man Utd (91) Firstly, all three of the players joined top four clubs as "wonderkids" with a lot of potential. They are all a similar age, play in similar positions, for similar sized clubs. We'll start off with Denilson, probably the most less known of the three when he made his big move. However, he was playing games for Brazil champions Sao Paulo and was highly rated in Brazil. Since moving to Arsenal he has played a total of 67 games and scored 4 goals. He has never played for Brazil. This season he has had a few injury problems, although has played 7 premier league games scoring 1 goals. Many Arsenal fans would consider him a useful part of the squad rotation. Secondly Anderson. Many people would say Man Utd massively overpayed for him splashing out £18 million. He had a big fee to live up to and has played a total of 51 games since joining Man Utd scoring 1 goal. He last played for Brazil national team in August 2008 meaning he has not played for over a year. This season he has started 8 EPL games, being used as a sub twice and scoring 1 goal. Finally Lucas. He moved to Liverpool from Gremio for £5 mil with a big name to live up to. Since joining he has played 59 games and scored 1 goal. He is in the current Brazil national team and last featured in October of this year. This season he's played every EPL game for Liverpool. So to conclude, Lucas has played more domestic football then the others this season, more international football then the others this season, has better pass rates, and better tacking rates, yet is still 3 rating points lower than Anderson and 1 point lower than Denilson who has never even got a call up to the national team. My question, why is Lucas still rated so low? And please don't say Liverpool's league position because we are only a few point below the likes of Arsenal and if our position was an issue we wouldn't have a 97 and 96 rated player in our squad. Liverpool's squad average is something like 92, so there is no way our squad position could have had an impact on Lucas staying 88. So please SM, if you read this respond giving your reasoning as I am very confused as to why Lucas has not been given the rise he certainly deserves. Is the "What Can Influence Changes?" no longer valid? or do SM honestly think Lucas has not improved since joining Liverpool? EDIT: Forgot to mention Babel. I know he's playing in a different position but how can Babel be rated higher than Lucas. I just don't see any logic there at all. If the Liverpool squad's ratings need to be kept balanced then Babel should drop to 87 in order for Lucas to get his +2 rise.

    Section 1 Risers It's a long time since these countries were reviewed, and given that the last 2 times all the Section 1 leagues bar Brazil were reviewed after Section 8, I'm assuming the same will happen again this time. As such, I have decided to post predictions for the players that I think will gain significant rises during these changes. I am not including Argentina, as the league is already excellently covered, whilst Bolivia and Costa Rica provide slim pickings, though I will add these countries if necessary. All risers will be listed on this initial post by country, from lowest current rating to highest, with the best risers in blue. This will be updated whenever I come across any players I've missed, and as I scrutinize the predictions as more games are played. This post will link to posts on individual countries, which will give more information, and explain why I have made such predictions. All predictions are my own, though some players are already well known. Any players that already have their own threads will also be linked. Enjoy. Chile Emanuel Lazzarini 70 → 76 (Will now not be assessed due to transfer) Sebastian Zuniga 72 → 77 Alejandro Gaete 74 → 78 Lucas Ojeda 75 → 79/80 78/9 Juan Albornoz 76 → 79 Matias Campos 76 → 81/2 80 Christian Cueva 76 → 80/1 (suggested by Nemanja Vidic) Alfonso Parot 77 → 78/9/80 Lorenzo Reyes 77 → 80 Juan Olivares 77 → 80 Enzo Gutierrez 78 → 80 Mario Pardo 78 → 81 Paulo Garces 78 → 82 Mauro Olivi 79 → 81 Eduardo Vargas 79 → 82 Miguel Hernandez 79 → 82 Rodolfo Gonzalez 80 → 82 Oliver Toledo 80 → 83 82 Diego Rosende 80 → 82/3 Mauro Bogado 80 → 81 Marco Medel 80 → 83 Juan José Morales 80 → 82/3 Sebastián Tagliabue 81 → 83 (transferred to Once Caldas, Columbia) Charles Aranguiz 83 → 85 Felipe Seymour 83 → 85 Ezequiel Miralles 85 → 86 Mexico Antonio Rios 72 → 78+ Pablo Aja 73 → 78 Hector Gutierrez 74 → 78 Raul Nava 74 → 81 80 Oswaldo Alanis 74 → 81/2 80+ Roberto Juarez 75 → 82 Ezequiel Orozco 75 → 82 Jorge Echavarria 76 → 79 (suggested by Andy Owls) Jose Jonathan Pina 76 → 79 Herbert Alferez 76 → 80 Rodrigo Salinas 76 → 81 80 (suggested by Andy Owls) Jorge Gastelum Ocampo 76 → 82/3 (suggested by Andy Owls) Luis David Velazquez 77 → 83 Jesús Zavala 78 → 81/2 Alfredo Talavera 78 → 84 81 Margarito Gonzalez 78 → 82 Juan Carlos Rojas 78 → 81/2 Héctor Miguel Morales 78 → 82 Raúl Rico 79 → 82 Uriel Alvarez 80 → 82/3 Diego Novaretti 80 → 84/5 Daniel Arreola 82 → 84/5 Darwin Chavez 83 → 85 Noé Maya 83 → 85 Jesus Molina 83 → 85/6 Edgar Pacheco 83 → 85/6 Javier Hernandez 83 → 87/8 86/7 Emanuel Villa 83 → 87 Marco Ivan Perez 84 → 86 Mariano Barbosa 84 → 85 Enrique Esqueda 85 → 87/8 Venezuela Luis Cabezas 72 → 76 Daniel Benitez 74 → 80 78 Daniel Valdes 76 → 78/9 Jhon Cordoba 76 → 80/1 Zamir Valoyes 83 → 84/5 Peru Roberto Ardiles 70 → 77 Bryan Salazar 73 → 76 Rubén Valladares 74 → 76/7 (suggested by xpratx) Edson Aubert 75 → 79/80 Kerwin Peixoto 75 → 79 (suggested by xpratx) Horacio Ramirez 76 → 79 Irveng Avila 76 → 81 Jimmy Schmidt 76 → 79 Yoshi Yotun 78 → 82 Joel Sanchez 80 → 82 Uruguay Matías Mier 72 → Néstor Moiraghi 72 → Mauro Goicoechea 73 → Enzo Perez 73 → 75 (suggested by xpratx) Gomes Cristiano 74 → Rodrigo Pastorini 74 → 78 Rodrigo Cabrera 74 → 79/80 78 Federico Puppo 75 → 77/8 (suggested by xpratx) Sergio Perez 75 → 78/9 77/8 (suggested by xpratx) Ismael Espiga 75 → 78 (suggested by xpratx) (Will now not be assessed due to transfer) Marcelo Rodriguez 75 → Mauricio Pereyra 75 → Mauricio Diaz 75 → Diego Rodriguez 75 → Jorge Cordoba 75 → 81/2 Marcel Novick 76 → Julián Lalinde 76 → Gastón Ramirez 76 → Mauro Silva 76 → Jonathan Ramis 76 → 82 (transferred to Cadiz) Jonathan Ramirez 77 → Martin Campana 77 → Nicolás Guevara 77 → Carlos Rodriguez 77 → 80/1 (suggested by xpratx) Martín Cauteruchi 77 → Lucero Alvarez 78 → Damián Frascarelli 78 → Sebastián Coates 78 → 82/3 Mauren Franco 80 → 83 (transferred to Chacarita Juniors, Argentina) Sebastián Sosa 82 → 84/5 Diego Ifran 84 → 85 Nicolás Lodeiro 84 → 86 (transferred to Ajax) (suggested by mitic0)

    Lee's list of 88+ risers

    Having taken so much from this forum I feel it's time I gave something back, even if it is just an amalgamation of other people's work. I'm going to try and list players currently's rated 88 or above from each country's league who have a chance of rising - my results for each country are split in 2 sections: Probable Risers - players with a 90%+ chance of getting a rise Possible Risers - players with a 50%+ chance of getting a rise at the moment, and who are likely to make progress from now until the rating changes towards that rise. Then I'll highlight my ★STAR BUYS★, players getting particularly large rises, or player likely to carry on rising. Basically, players you should definately get your hands on now! Where two (or more!) possible ratings are displayed (e.g. 90-91/92), the first is the one most likely. England Spain Italy France Germany Holland Portugal Looking for a certain position? Well now they're sorted again, this time by a player's primary position... GK LB RB CB/Def DM (includes CM/DM) Wing/LM/RM AM/CM Fwd/CF And finally, all the star buys in one, handy, place. Nice.

    Sir Rahul

    Rahul W's rating predictions

    https://www.transfermarkt.com/ousmane-dembele/leistungsdaten/spieler/288230 do these minutes justify a 91? and how does trophies matter in this discussion? Juve should be getting extensive rises then too English? People are free to speak whatever they want in my thread, but I'm just not sure how many could help if it ain't English. Respect? What's the point of doing extensive preds for all 100 big 5 leagues teams + many other minor leagues if you're going to ask again here? Opinion? Don't see the opinion in putting 88 players and asking for other's thoughts. others, if I'm wrong, please let me know. thanks.

    YBR - Young Brazilian Risers What YBR will offer ? The proposal of YBR is to share with every manager knowledge about new talents of Brazilian football, transfers, information, statistics and everything that you want to know about Brazilian football. The YBR thread is made mainly to show the future predictions for rating changes, but any forumer must ask anything about the brazilian football, known as a home of soccer "magicians".

    I had a quick search through some youngsters and I feel these players are worth buying. A few big risers here. You can make up your own mind from researching the player and their statistics. I'm not confident in my predictions, I tried this last season and I was a little off the mark with some players. Primera División Velez Sarsfield Gino PERUZZI 75 -> 77/76 - 395 minutes Boca Juniors Juan Sanchez Mino 75 -> 80 - 1073 minutes, 1 goal, 1 assist (copa 258 mins, 3 goals) (Suggested by marius) All Boys Francisco MARTÍNEZ 75 -> 77 - 612 minutes Newell's Old Boys Maximiliano URRUTI 76 -> 81 - 1489 minutes, 6 goals Guillermo ORTIZ 75 -> 77 - 632 minutes Fabian MUNOZ 75 -> 77 - 590 minutes Colon Lucas MUGNI 75 -> 78 - 923 minutes, 1 goal Gabriel GRACIANI 78 -> 80/81 - 1112 minutes, 1 goal Maximiliano CAIRE 78 -> 80/81 - 1278 minutes Argentinos Juniors Lucas CANO 75 -> 77 - 516 minutes Santiago NAGÜEL 75 -> 78 - 750 minutes, 1 goal Gaspar INIGUEZ 75 -> 80 - 1204 minutes Union Santa Fe Pablo MAGNIN 75-> 77 - 405 minutes, 2 goals Diego JARA 78-> 81 - 1088 minutes, 4 goals Independiente Fabian MONSERRAT 75-> 80/79 - 1227 minutes Olimpo Martin PEREZ GUEDES 75-> 81/80 - 1365 minutes, 5 goals Banfield Nicolas TAGLIAFICO 80-> 82/83 - 1620 minutes Andrés CHAVEZ 75 -> 78 - 1125 minutes, 3 goals Adrian RETA 75 -> 77 - 770 minutes, 1 goal, 1 assist Prim B Nacional I'm not really sure how to judge the predictions, even with promotion.

    Not sure if everyone is up to date with what's going on economically & politically in Spain right now so, I thought that I'd write on this... Moreover, this isn't a statement about what's going to happen on the pitch with these teams, it's merely a heads up of what is going on financially off the field. Introduction So with the entire world economy imploding this past year some-how some-way Real Madrid was able to spend like drunken sailors to attract some of the very best players in the world. Anyone who could read a balance sheet and had some knowledge of trading could tell you that Real's actions signified a top in the market, especially when other teams all over the world, not to mention one just 3hrs east of Madrid, were at that same time feeling tightening financial screws... 3 Reasons Real Madrid & Barca Could Pull Off What They Did Financially Despite being one of the most in debt sports organizations on the entire planet, Real Madrid was able to pull this off (Barca, too) due to 3 major fiscal reasons: 1. Favorable Distribution Deal Media (tv) distribution in Spain is handled on a club by club basis, not collectively as in most other leagues in Europe. Having easily the largest fan base in Spain and controlling the distribution of its product, Real was able to secure excellent tv distribution contracts compared to the likes of Lyon or Milan or United, who had to collectively share these rights with all of the other teams in their respective leagues. What does this mean... It means that Real has a slightly better tv distribution set-up than the other big European clubs it is competing on and off the pitch with. 2. Backed by the Banks of Spain Real Madrid is basically backed by the Spanish government...and the finances that back the Spanish government are in free fall. Here's how: Real Madrid isn't owned by a specific company. Like Barcelona, its owners are a collective. Because they are owned by a collective, they qualify as a "non-profit social trust". That phrase is basically a fancy way of saying that they have access to cheaper money compared to most businesses (let alone teams), they have access to more avenues of money compared to most businesses, and they have a longer time of paying back that money compared to most businesses. Whatever debt they hold is with local Spanish banks. Smaller banks and dozens of them. Contrast this with other large European clubs who have the vast majority of their debt with one or two large global banks. Anyway, for years many of these smaller banks have been under political and social pressure not to tighten the screws on Real Madrid or Barcelona when it comes time for interest payments to be due. Historically Real & Barcelona have been basically too big to fail. They haven't ever come under the kind of debt pressures that affect traditional clubs. Struggling to make interest payments isn't something that Barca or Real have ever had to worry about, because if they don't have the money when it's due, the banks are pressured to just let it slide. Historically, they have played by a different set of rules. However, that is starting to change... 3. Favorable Tax Loophole There has been a massive tax difference between La Liga and the rest of Europe over the past several years. At the beginning of 2004, the Spanish government put into place a new tax law. The new law was that a foreign national living in Spain for less than five years can benefit from a special tax bracket of just 24% on every euro earned after the first €600,000, rather than Spain's standard 43% rate. This new tax law ONLY benefited rich foreign nationals living in Spain (and the foreign companies that they worked for). The reason that they put this into place was that Spain was trying to attract top-notch foreign executives. The thinking went something like this: In a common European market and an interconnected global economy, why should all the top bankers base themselves in London rather than Barcelona or Madrid? And why shouldn't big North American and Asian multi-national companies put their European headquarters in Spain rather than France or Germany? Anyway, that was the thinking for the change in the tax law. Basically to attract big wealthy foreign companies and executives. I'm sure you guys remember this, but Real Madrid first tested out this new tax law with Beckham. He had signed with them in the summer of 2003. Real argued that he should be given this tax benefit the same as any other foreign executive. After some back and forth with the Spanish government he and Real Madrid got the tax break. They reworked Beckham's contract to where Real paid him 15% LESS in wages than he was making before, but his take home pay after these new lower taxes was actually MORE than he was getting before. To put all of that in other terms... Say you are Real Madrid and you want to sign a player. The player wants to take home €6.0M after taxes. Under this tax law, Real Madrid only would have to offer the player a salary of roughly €8.0M. If United or City or Chelsea wanted the same player, they would have to offer the player a salary of just under €10.0M. In terms of a 5 year contract, that's a savings for Real Madrid of €10M (= €2M X 5 years) versus one of the clubs in England... Hell, if Rafa was managing Madrid, his knucklehead transfer blunders would even go MORE unnoticed !! Here's What is Happening With Each of Those 3 Financial Advantages 1. Favorable Distribution Deal It's a good tv deal. Barca has the same thing. It's like the Yankees here in NYC. They have their own channels and distribution and it's a healthy revenue stream for the club. No negatives with this right now...unless the unemployed in Spain begin to turn their tvs off. But that's not likely to happen, even in recessions/depressions. 2. Backed by the Banks of Spain It's not immediate, but here's how they are screwed: I'm sure Spain leads the world in dozens of things, but the most important thing that Spain has led the world in is Alternative Energy (solar, wind, etc...). Over the past year Spain has surpassed Germany as the biggest Alt Energy market in the world, and both those countries account for the vast majority of Alt. Energy projects in the world. Good right...?..Not really... In an effort to become the the Saudi Arabia of Alternative Energy the Spanish government subsidized the population of Spain not only to start new solar/wind projects but also to use Alternative Energy. What does that mean... It basically means that the Spanish government wrote you a check for starting up a Solar company or even just for using solar/wind energy @ your home. A pretty sweet deal for you. In 2008, Spain accounted for half the world's new solar-power installations in terms of wattage. However, as of a couple of months ago the Spanish government dramatically scaled back those subsidies and capped the amount of subsidized solar power that could be installed. The Spanish companies that ramped up production of solar components found that demand had dried up. Prices dropped and continue to drop as demand continues to wane. Just yesterday it came out that Spain's reported unemployment figure is now 18%. 18% !!!!! And that is just the "reported" figure. "Actual" unemployment is way higher. To put that in context, it's TWICE the average in Europe. To put in context some more, a year ago it was 11%. Spain is going to be seeing 20% unemployment by early part of 2010. One out of every 5 people are going to be out of a job... That's INSANE ! But somehow Real Madrid are spending like clowns. Makes complete sense, right...? Anyway, so you're saying..."Who cares about all that just as long as Lass Diarra's rating goes to 93...What the hell does Solar Energy and Government Subsidies and 18% National Unemployment have to do with Real Madrid?" Please bear with me a little bit longer... Anyway, these dozens and dozens of smaller banks that have backed Real Madrid with all of this debt over the years, and backed them in Real's latest push to sign Ronaldo et.al. are in a world of massive hurt. Many are going to fail. Not only have these exact same banks financed Real and even Barca but they are also the biggest financiers of the Solar industry in Spain. You think some of these numbers that are floating around futbol are scary....It ain't nothing like the Solar Industry. I know this firsthand because I trade some of these Solar companies' stocks for a living, so I see these deals. The vast majority of Solar Industry projects are financed through extreme leverage. So what does that mean... It means that a handful of guys scrap together €10M and a Spanish bank will help them finance Solar projects worth €50M. This new Solar company goes out and buys €50M worth of land and Solar equipment, they do this because the Spanish government is helping subsidizing these projects AND because the demand is there from the Spanish people who are also being subsidized by the Spanish government to use Solar/Wind energy. So fast forward a year, and the subsidies have dried up and the demand has fallen off and these same banks that have backed Spanish futbol are now on the hook for €50M just for one solar project, not forgetting that each of them signed dozens of these Solar projects. I am not talking about one or two of these banks doing deals like this. I am talking about the majority of them. They are at a point now where they have to start to recoup some of this money, but who has it? Those handful of guys that scrapped together the original €10M sure don't have it. They all got slaughtered with their investments in General Motors or AIG or Bear Stearns or RBS or Infineon or Commerzbank or that expensive new home that they bought at the top of the market. So you are saying, "Well why on earth would those banks take on 5X leverage to back those Solar projects ?" Well, the answer is that aside from the government subsidies that were in place, these banks also felt comfortable that their main sources of income were going to be just fine. And what are their main sources of income...? Their main sources of income just like any other bank are the collection of monthly fees from Spanish citizens who would continue to pay their mortgages and credit card bills and personal loans, etc... If you said 9-12 months ago when Real Madrid was taking on the debt to finance Galácticos II, that Spanish unemployment was going to go from 11% to 18%, you would have been put in an asylum. 15%...maybe. That's even a lot. But no way 18%. I can guarantee you that the Spanish government would love it if national unemployment ONLY topped out at 20%. If you promised them today that unemployment would ONLY top out @ 20% over the coming years they'd take that deal in a heartbeat. Anyway, unemployment skyrocketing to unseen levels and one-fifth of the Spanish population finding it tough to pay off their monthly credit fees, makes it a tough environment for any bank, let alone ALL of the banks in Spain. So how does all that affect Real & Barca and the rest of the in debt Spanish teams...? Here's a crude example of how... Say your buddy is doing well and you hit him up for a loan that you promise to pay back over time. Then your buddy falls on hard times. He has some money saved, but he loses his job. The wife leaves with the kids and now he has alimony & child support payments. He doesn't come asking for the money that you owe him right away, because he's not sure how it will affect your relationship. So instead he lives off his savings and his credit cards. But sooner or later his savings are going to dry up and the credit cards are going to be maxed-out. Now you still owe him his money and you've been paying him back little by little...sometimes you pay him back a little bit later than you promised. The next month rolls around and your financial situation is hurting too, but not quite as bad because you have his money that he loaned you. How is this guy going to react when you decide to call him up and tell him that you can't pay him on time this month because you want to buy a new shiny speedboat ? Is he in any position to let it slide...? No way. The exact same scenario is going on with the Spanish teams and the Spanish banks which they are indebted to. So now these banks are put in a position where they can't be as lenient with teams like Barca and Real Madrid, because these banks are all collectively on terrible financial footing. 3. Favorable Tax Loophole Unfortunately for the Spanish teams this is the one that is going to come home to roost just in time for the January transfer window. And it's going to HURT...immediately... Spain's socialistic government was the first to propose an end to this 24% tax loophole, as well they should right now. The conventional wisdom said that the citizens of Spain would NOT back the government on this, but guess what...Shocker. It turns out that the citizens of Spain are finally up in arms over being unemployed, watching their economy crumble around them and have to pay 43% taxes while multi-zillionaire lady-boys like Crisitano Ronaldo pay 24% and sleep with all of their women. The Spanish parliament is about to vote on repealing the tax loophole any week now. Ridiculously just last week the Spanish teams threatened to go on strike, if the government tried to change the tax law. Are you kidding me... However, they backed off once polls showed that the citizens of Spain overwhelmingly backed the government on this. Anyway, once the tax code is changed...and it will be... it will likely go into effect Jan 1st just in time for the silly season transfer market. I was listening to some show the other day that said that under this new tax code Cristiano Ronaldo's wages will immediately cost Real Madrid €2M more per year ! And that's just the first year... His contract scales 25% for each of the remaining 5 years. For his net income (i.e. "take home pay") to go up every year, it means it will cost Real Madrid more than €2-8M each subsequent remaining year in his contract. Those are big numbers that Real Madrid did not have factored into their forecasts. Anyway... Bienvenido to the House of Pain, Spain. . ASIDE: I didn't get into the other countries' ludicrous tax changes in all this (i.e. England raising it to 50% and what that means to those EPL clubs who subsequently will have to increase wages to the likes of Drogba or Adebayor or Torres). Furthermore I didn't get into Sterling's continued under-performance versus the Euro. Both of those are going to hurt teams in England vs big European teams located outside of England. That said, those negatives for the EPL clubs aren't anything like the immediate changes that are going to affect La Liga teams for this coming year.

    Re: English Championship 28697 - Match Reports,Transfer news etc. 24 teams.4 promoted.2 relegated.So much up for grabs and quality football. Newport County 1 - 4 Wycombe Wanderers Was always going to be a stuggle for Newport when they took on one of the top dogs of the division.Wycombe went 1-0 up and then Newport equalized,but it wasn't meant to be as Wycombe went on to score 3 more goals and steal the victory Bury 2 -1 Exeter City A young Exeter side took on a strong Bury side. Exeter took the lead and fans were ecstatic at there lead,but as pressure grew and grew on Exeter from the Home side,Bury finally scored on 42th minutes to level things.Exeter were ready to take a point but it wasn't meant to be as Nick Powell scored on the 85th minute to steal the 3 points. Portsmouth 2 - 0 Cheltenham Town Portsmouth are one of the strongest in this division and should challenge top spot.So when they welcomed Cheltenham they needed to switch on and that's exactly what they did from the off.Luis Alberto started the scoring on the 20th minute then scored on 66th.Tough start for Cheltenham but they maybe should have had retain possession alot more better than 31%. Fleetwood Town 2- 0 Torquay United Barnaby would have wanted a win to kick start their season and he got that from his boys and judging by the stats maybe they should have had a bit more.But Torquay had a few attempts at goal which Sergey CHEPCHUGOV saved.Clifford broke the deadlock at 24 minute then 12 minutes later scored again.After that the game slowed down a bit. Oxford United 2 - 1 Rochdale Two good teams went against each other.Maybe Rochdale should have won based on Quality and stats but goals win you games and Oxford netted two times with only 3 shots on target. Rochdale GK may feel a bit disappointed with the outcome. Dagenham & Redbridge 0 -2 Plymouth Argyle Two sides even on quality but a huge difference on the stats and Plymouth deserved their win.How they didn't win by more i don't know but Dag and Red have to thank their man of the match GK who kept the scoreline as low as possible.Plymouth scored on the 12th and 35th,but should of been like 7-0 Accrington Stanley 2 - 1 Southend United A game with few chances but on the 13th minute Southend scored on the 13th min after constantly defending they made the counter attack work well. But Accrington scored 9 minutes later and then on the 32nd minute they took the lead and after that they couldn't make their chances count but they took the 3 points. Hartlepool United 4 - 3 Mansfield Town An even game all round with goals flying in left right centre in a 7 goal thriller.Mansfield being one of the worst teams in the league they gave a very good battle but their hard work was not awarded with a point. Hartlepool took their chances and held strong at the back in the last 10 minutes. York City 1 - 3 Northampton Town York City were the underdogs and would have loved a point vs a Strong Northampton side.But on the 31st minute went 1-0.Could York come back ? Later they suffered another goal in 63rd minute-Looking bleak for York.York did however score on the 66th and it was game on! But just 2 minutes later Northampton ruined their cheer to make 3-1. AFC Wimbledon 6 - 1 Morecambe Another 7 goal thriller as poor Morecambe let in every shot on target by Wimbledon.But Geoffrey wont care one bit as his team dominated possession throughout the game.Geoffrey played his back up GK and he made some crucial saves. Morecambe however did score but was only a consolation goal.But Wimbledon was not finish as they score 3 minutes later. Burton Albion 2 - 1 Bristol Rovers Both teams were equal in quality and could have gone both ways but it was Burton who were victorious with only 3 shots on target.Bristol Rovers will be disappointed as they dominated the stats but like i always say goals win you games. Shorpe United 3- 3 Chesterfield Chesterfield took the lead twice! and managed to throw it away.Shorpe did go 3-2 up but Chesterfield were not to be beaten so easily as they equalized 6 minutes later in a very entertaining game

    I Had a look at Tippeligaen, Norway on Soccerway and here is a list of the best risers. These were the best I could find but I may have overlooked some good risers and I may also have misjudged a few so for your own good you should doublecheck. Fredrik Torsteinbø - Sandnes Ulf - 21 yrs - Wing - 75 - 78 Alexander Groven - Hønefoss BK - 20 yrs - CB - 75 - 80 Riku Riski - Hønefoss BK - 22 yrs - AM/Wing - 80 - 82/83 Arnor Sveinn Adalsteinsson - Hønefoss BK - 26 yrs - RB/LB - 75 - 80/82 ***Heiner Mora - Hønefoss BK - 28 yrs - RB/RM - 60 - 78/80 ***Razak Nuhu - Strømsgodset IF - 21 yrs - Def - 75 - 80 Ola Kamara - Strømsgodset IF - 22 yrs - Fwd / Wing - 82 - 84 Adama Diomade - Strømsgodset IF - 22 yrs - Fwd / Wing - 78 - 80/81 Stefan Johansen - Strømsgodset IF - 21 yrs - CF - 78 - 80/81 ***Martin Linnes - Molde FK - 20 yrs - RB/RM - 76 - 82/83 Josh Gatt - Molde FK - 20 yrs - RM/RB - 77 - 80/82 ***Magnus Eikrem - Molde FK - 22 yrs - CM/AM - 82 - 84/85 Maic Sema - FK Haugesund - 23 yrs - Wing/Fwd - 76 - 80/82 This one is hard to predict, got a lot of mins and goals for Hammarby in Sweden and hasn't been reviewed for a long time. If SM gives him credit for that he should rise to 82. ***Alexander Soderlund - FK Haugesund - 25 yrs - CF - 78 - 82 ***Thomas Drage - Tromsø IL - 20 yrs - AM/Wing - 80 - 83/82 Thomas Bendiksen - Tromsø IL - 22 yrs - AM/CM - 75 - 78/80 ***Ole Selnæs - Rosenborg BK - 18 yrs - CM - 75 - 80 ***Hans Norbye - Tromsø IL - 25 yrs - RB/RM - 77 - 82/83 ***Jonas Svensson - Rosenborg BK - 19 yrs - AM/Wing - 78 - 82/83 Håvard Nielsen - Vålerenga IF - 18 yrs - Fwd - 77 - 80/82 Rose to 82 ***Simon Larsen - Vålerenga IF - 24 yrs - CB/RB - 75 - 82/80 Martin Pusic - Vålerenga IF - 24 yrs - Fwd/Wing - 77 - 80 (Now sold to Fredrikstad) Eirik Skaasheim - Sogndal - 19 yrs - RB - 75 - 80/78 ***Gustav Valsvik - Sogndal - 19 yrs - CB - 77 - 80/79 Tonny Brochmann - Sogndal - 21 yrs - CM/AM - 75 - 80/78 Jon Helge Tveita - Viking FK - 20 yrs - RB/CM - 75 - 78 ***Yann Erik De Lanlay - Viking FK - 20 yrs - Wing/Fwd - 78 - 82/83 ***Veton Berisha - Viking FK - 18 yrs - Fwd - 75 - 80 Kristoffer Barmen - SK Brann - 18 yrs - CM - 75 - 78/77 Snorre Krogsgard - Odd Grenland - 21 yrs - Fwd - 75 - 78 Emil Jonassen - Odd Grenland - 19 yrs - LB - 75 - 80/78 Niklas Gunnarsson - Odd Grenland - 21 yrs - CB/LB - 75 - 78 Snorre Krogsgaard - Odd Grenland - 21 yrs - Fwd - 75 - 78/80 ***Etzaz Hussain - Fredrikstad FK - 19 yrs - CM/AM - 76 - 80 (Now sold to Molde) Ole Strømsborg - Fredrikstad FK - 18 yrs - RB/CB - 75 - 77/78 Khalifa Jabbie - Fredrikstad FK - 19 yrs - CM - 78 - 80/81 Sean Cunningham (on loan from Molde) - Stabæk IF - 19 yrs - CB - 75 - 78 Franck Boli - Stabæk IF - 18 yrs - CF - 75 - 78/77 Mande Sayouba - Stabæk IF - 19 yrs - GK - 75 - 77/78 Sten Grytebust - Aalesunds FK - 22 yrs - GK - 80 - 82 Fredrik Ulvestad - Aalesunds FK - 20 yrs - CM - 77 - 80 Ohi Omoijuanfo - Lillestrøm SK - 18 yrs - Wing/Fwd - 75 - 78 Björn Sigurdarson - Lillestrøm SK - 21 yrs - CF - 82 - 84/83 Rose to 84 Recently moved to Wolwerhampton and will probably rise to 84 even though his performance in Lillestrøm justifies no more than 83. Be aware that he may not be reviewed until next review of English Championship *** Is best buys. Either for the future or for very big rating increase.

    Re: Guess at next leagues to be reviewed, & discuss SM's review policy........ Rant imminent. Soccerwiki has been a plague on this game. While it's a good standalone idea, it should never have been joined with SM in the way it has. Since then we've seen ludicrous rating changes, the destruction of the rating schedule and the introduction of random ratings. There was a time when rises for players felt like a massive thing. It was done perfectly. Thomas Muller had to dominate in a World Cup to get 91, now Neymar gets it for playing well in a league that SM never rated highly until soccerwiki showed up. Samuel Umtiti just rose +6 despite the fact that he has only played one third of Lyon's games. That's complete nonsense, back before SW it would have taken him two changes to get there. The old rating system was calm and well thought out. A player not only had to earn his rating, he had to sustain it. If a 75 rated player started playing every week for Man Utd he'd rise to 80, then 83, then 86, 88, 90. It would take a year, maybe more for him to be first team rating and thus if he fell out of form during the process, SM could be sensible. By that I mean that if, when he hits 88, he starts playing terribly then SM hadn't just given him a 90 because he's a hyped young player so it doesnt look silly. Now it seems like once a player is good in Fifa, Football Manager or included in "Best 100 Young Players" lists, he's guaranteed to get a massive rating increase. Not to mention the utterly ludicrous new system of implementing position changes after the player plays ONE match in that position. ONE match. I remember 2/3 years ago SM telling me that one of my players couldnt have a position change because he hadn't played there enough, and he had played 15+ times. It's absolutely pathetic. Change John O'Shea, Felipe Melo and Phil Jagielka to "GK" if one game equals being proficient at that position. Nonsense. Finally, the rating structure. Farcical. Removing a schedule makes it literally impossible to predict and sign risers, essentially making a wonderful effort to destroy a huge aspect of SM. There's also the issue of inconsistent ratings when one player from one club in one country gets a rise because someone on soccerwiki saw him in a 100 Best Young Players list and decides to give him a random increase. I've actually benefitted from this and it still annoys me. Jores Okore got a random rise recently but my other Danish league players remain untouched. It also makes it difficult to be excited. The big league change cycle coming around was always greeted with much anticipation in my GW. I'm going to sound pathetic but meh; waking up I was always diving for my phone/computer to see who'd risen or who'd dropped. Now there's been no changes, bar some Botswana ones since Saturday. Summary: Not everything has to change SM. You're implementing changes for the sake of implementing changes. The game was perfect, you're slowly making it convoluted and destroying what made it beautiful - its simplicity.

    Colossal 10k riser list

    Introduction Right Im hoping this will be a useful thread, I know for myself this list would be an absolute gold mine. What I have done is pasted all the 10k transfers made in the brand new and very competitive setup "the intercourse". This is largely to save me time, as I do have a lot of them written down on a word document (200ish) as well but this also shows were the players moved from and their nationality easily. The Maths If all these 10k risers rise to say 250k value on average (which is a realistic figure), then if you spent 5 million on these players they will be worth a tidy 125 million so it can definitely be worth while! DISCLAIMER Now a word of warning a lot these players may have very few minutes, no minutes or may just be talents so if your not sure on a player please feel free to check his stats on any site (I normally use http://www.transfermarkt.co.uk/, just type in the name in the search and they should come up, except columbia). The players I bought are the ones moving to VfL Osnabruck and they will generally have at least a few minutes of playing time. The rest have been bought by the other managers in the setup and although these managers are top class and will only buy a player for a reason a couple of them again may be complete rubbish! However they are only worth 10k so you don't stand to lose much and you could just buy them all probably for less than 5 million in total. If you bid 20k (ie the chairman max) for the players it will mean you cannot be outbid by other managers but that is probably only necessary in very competitive setups. No large scale rating predictions are being given guys due to the large number of players! Very sorry! (I do appreciate they would be very helpful) Individual request for a few players are fine. Some of these will rise to 80 odd in the next few changes as well so there is some real gems in there but I dont have the time quite at the moment to go through them all and say which ones are good or bad. Also a lot of these players are very obscure so you can still find them free in very competitive setups. The short list below is a selection of those that particularly caught my eye for some reason: Favourites VASQUEZ, Omar +10 ROHRACKER, Dominik league awaiting review MRSIC, Antonio +9 TOOTLE, Matt league awaiting review JULIAN, Alan league awaiting review PRGOMET, Krešimir +8 KOTORA, Igor league awaiting review TABOT, Enow Juvette +15 QUOTSCHALLA, Marco league awaiting review ARDILES, Roberto league awaiting review I think! VIDMAR, Nejc league awaiting review ZEIGER, Philipp league awaiting review RAKELS, Deniss league awaiting review SWALLOW, Ben +5 HOLZ, Marco league awaiting review GOMELKO, Artem +6 TERZIEV, Georgi +8 ZLATKOV, Daniel +8 Matija Poredski +8 Lukas Van Eeno +7 ORSIC, Mislav +5 WESTO, Johannes +7 O'BRIEN, James +3 (not great!) DIMITROV, Nikolay (50k) +3 VULJANKO, Neven +5 POPOVIC, Denis league awaiting review LIZARAZO, Carlos +5 VELAGIC, Azur league awaiting review HUSKIC, Etien league awaiting review KARIC, Elvis league awaiting review KIROV, Aleksandar +5 MAZOLA, A. league awaiting review (+20 likely!) Right and heres the main list: and also a few cheeky 20kers! thanks very much and feel free to leave further feedback JC

    The general impression in the SM community is an appraisal of the prediction, the next big thing, but as we will see, as time goes by some of those predictions go terribly wrong. The idea came to me after reading an old post on another forum about how this kid thought that C. Ronaldo - when he first joined Manchester United - was no where near the quality of David Bellion and would never be. That being said I don't want to sound depreciative of the work these god-like-people that in the attempt of grasping the future of obscure and famous players provide us with information to make the well oiled profit machine. (if only it would be so accessible for real life... ) But that's not what this thread is about, here we take a look at the flip side of the coin, those bad cases of momentary 'genius', that are so funny to revisit. After searching the forum i came to two conclusions: 1. Trusting your gut instinct is a lot better than narrowing a number on a players ability. Actually see the player in action! 2. A time machine would be really sweet. So to start it off here are a few examples, and to be fair i should mention the people who had these unlucky remarks bellow most of the time where right on their predictions regarding most players. Ahh those eternal questions... And finnaly... Thanks for taking the time to read and feel free to comment and find some more pearls and post them here. Keep in mind to not bump old threads as they may mislead people and is discouraged by SM. -Quotes are taken from Player Assistance forum, between 07-11-2007 and 08-22-2007 -Quotes with (...) have content cut for the sake of fluency and the quote context was preserved as much as possible. -Text in red inside the quote are my own comments
