  1. Re: Russian and Ukraine Player Analysis Hi guys! I am back in this game so I decided to help you out a bit with future rating changes in the Russian Premier League: Zenit: Lodygin 87-87/88 Smolnikov 87-87/88 Danny won't rise yet, maybe after WC if he plays there! Lokomotiv Abaev 83-86 Lobantsev 77-79/80 Denisov 87-88 Tarasov 87-87/88 Miranchuk 80-82 Maicon 87-87/88 Tkachev 83-85/86 Samedov 89-90 (I would say he is the closest player in the league to get 90!!) N'Doye 88-88/89 (maybe SM won't rouse him now, but I think it's 65/35 for the rise) Spartak Mitryushkin 77-78/79 Dzuba(on loan at Rostov) 87-88!! Waris (on loan at Valenciennes) 85-86 CSKA Milanov 86-87 Bazelyuk 78-80 Dynamo Kozlov 87-87/88 (but 70/30 stay for now) Yusupov 85-86/85 Amkar Ogude (They have him as midfilder, should change to forward) Nikitin 78-80 Kolomejtsev 83-84 Anzhi Kerzhakov 83-85/84 Serderov 80-81 Abdulavov 77-78 Krasnodar Sinitsyn 82-83 Mamaev 87-87/88 (should rise, but pretty sure SM won't do it!) Gazinskiy 83-84/85 Joaozinho 87-87/88! Laborde 82-83 Wanderson 86-87 (Sure thing!!) Rostov Bastos 80-82/81 Fatullayev 78-80 Kalachev 84-85 Kanga 83-84 Krylia Sovetov Kontsedalov 78-80 Brown Forbes 80-81/82 Chochiev 78-80 Kuban Belenov 86-87 Zhavnerchik 83-84 Sosnin 82-83 Popov 87-87/88 (Best player of Kuban hands down alongside Kabore) Rubin Nabiullin 76-80 Kvirkvelia 82-84 Mogilevets 77-80 Azmoun 77-81/82 (Now, if you ask me who is the best young player in RPL, Azmoun will be my answer. He is a must buy guys, trust me. Arsenal is already said to be interested in him) Terek Temnikov 78-80 Tom Panchenko 82-84/83 Ural Zabolotnyi 78-80 Khosin 80-81 Acevedo 82-82/83 Lungu 80-81/82 Gogniev 80-82 Erokhin 80-81/82 Volga Danilenko 77-78/79 These are just the risers, if you want to know the droppers, please feel free to ask any questions in this thread! Good luck with your teams!

    Rewarding Loyalty

    Re: Rewarding Loyalty Just stumbled on this and haven't the time to read all posts so this might already have been covered but... Its a shame your not considering the part in bold as having managers stay at clubs for long periods of time bring stability and longevity to GW's which surely should also hold value to SM if they want to create the best football management game on the web. Having a manager that plays SM for 5 years but jumps from club to club every couple of weeks is less valuable in my opinion to someone that has only played for a year but has only managed one or two clubs in that time. People want to play in active GW's I don't care about having the ability to play in 3-4-5 free GW's if the GW'S arn't populated and competitive. I myself and I'm sure others too would rather (happily) pay for extra slots if the GW'S were as mentioned populated and competitive. Monkeyshuffl

    Oscar Pistorius Trial

    Re: Oscar Pistorius Trial L He's an entitled kid who's always gotten what he wanted, and probably used to f-king people over without consequences. Popularity definitely contributed to that. But he crossed a line that you're not allowed to cross in the society and now he must pay for it.

  11. Re: English Championship 28697 Discussion Thread Versatility is the key when your down in the lower leagues as you need to keep chaging around the players and formation so having a guy who can play anywhere across the back is always a big plus. Name keeps popping up being linked with Liverpool and Everton so thought id take a punt on the guy. Adds some needed steel to my centre mid. Happy with the dealings so far.

    The Politics Thread

    Re: The Politics Thread Dumping here my research links, with brief notes on a research paper I did comparing far-right success in UK & Finland. http://www.bbc.com/news/uk-politics-20554311*2012 Are UKIP the new Lib Dems http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2011/feb/10/lib-dem-protest-votes*2011 Lib Dems can't just be the home of protest votes Lib Dems are the protest vote, not the BNP http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/10.1111/1467-9477.12017/abstract* True Finns won because they were the protest vote. Unemployment and high number of immigrants, the common far-right issues, did not match with the Finnish case. Abstract only. http://uaces.org/documents/papers/1201/ketola.pdf True Finns won with Euroscepticism at the forefront of their strategy. They had to implement it because of Finland's low number of immigrants.

Kestilä suggested that the mood and outlook of Finnish voters is as favourable to a radical right-wing party as in those European countries where the radical right has had success Kestilä also noticed that voter turnout had decreased, dissatisfaction toward political institutions had grown and xenophobia and criticism of the EU had increased (Kestilä 2005, 369). Pekonen it was especially the attitudes popular among the populist right, which seemed to meet with a response from the voters, which the political groups or parties that existed then did not know how to take advantage of (Pekonen, Hynynen, Kalliala 1999, 57) Separation of True Finns in general – and why they won these elections. http://www.hs.fi/kotimaa/a1305561645377 30% in 2009 to 42% in 2012 criticize EU for creating negative results in Finnish economy.

Their rhetoric is centered around countering european political integration. Uk has an opt-out of the eu monetary union their contribution on portugal was less in absolute amount than finland. Considering the relative size of the two economies, this is significant in that european bailout contributions became more salient in finland, while bnp considered opposing immigration and european integration more important. http://usatoday30.usatoday.com/news/world/2011-04-18-finland-true-finns-europe-debt.htm uk 7.5 bil dollars.

    The Politics Thread

    Re: The Politics Thread Yeah, I used to be pretty worried about far-right parties 6 months ago, but now that I've had time to look into it, I'm not worried anymore. They simply don't have the electoral base or the argument to make a long-lasting impact. Their successes spike up briefly due to transient issues, specifically when their platform lines up with the electoral agenda of the day. If the issue of immigration becomes salient enough, I'm sure the bigger parties will move more towards the average voter. Who is still far, far away from the average extreme right voter.

    The Politics Thread

    Re: The Politics Thread and this is related to politics because? This isn’t happening now as the Daily Mail implies. Subway have released a statement which states that since 2007' date=' a programme was put in place to ensure that the population demographic is taken into account when new store openings are considered in order that they meet consumer demand in each location. They are a limited number of Halal Subway stores in the UK. Approx 180 stores serve all-Halal meat out of 1500+ stores in the UK, which is like less than 12%. I really don’t think Muslims have demanded an all-Halal store, it sounds like a load of baloney. It sounds like Subway looked at the demographics and decided that if the area is mainly composed of Muslims, make it an all-Halal store, if not, then make it a non-Halal store. I honestly don’t see why Subway can’t serve Halal and non-Halal products together. I, as a Muslim don’t have a problem with that and I’m sure many Muslims will agree. Btw, you shouldn't believe the Daily Mail. They have a history of publishing a lot of crap. Studies have shown that the Halal and Kosher method causes less pain than the pre-stunting method, if you follow the correct guidelines, not like the other studies carried funded by the animal right campaigners which blatantly ignores them. They’ve set out a image that some knife-wielding maniac slaughters a animal like a maniac, therefore the animal suffers an intense amount of pain. This is simply not true. The vast majority of Halal meat in the UK are pre-stunned anyway and Subway have stated that the Halal meat will also be pre-stunned. Pfft. Says the guy who thought a former tobacco factory in his hometown (I think, if not, then the city you've been living in for a few years), which is the tallest building in the City, was a Mosque and was baffled why it was given permission to be built. Now that I've brought it up, you're gonna be quiet now like whenever I've brought it up in the past. I suppose you could go out and explore Dresden a bit more since you've demonstrated that you're an social outcast. A bit of fresh air is good for you.

  24. Re: English Championship 28697 Discussion Thread Excellent Queens Park Rangers! A brilliant promoted side, the best of all 3 promoted teams from the Championship managed to reach a top 5 position in their first season in the Premier League. The chemistry between the players worked almost to perfection and it was the most important ability of the team, which lead also to success. But for the manager, Mr. Armiri, that is going to be his last season in charge of "The Hoops" ! "It's one of the hardest decisions that I had to take as a manager, but I think it's also the right one. I am not sure if we are going to play a better season than the last one, and everything less would be a disappointment from me, and therefore I think that the best decision I can take, is to quit as I am still in time to leave the club as a good manager who made something of the players I had available. Thank you to everyone who helped me in my staying here. I wish you all a wonderful future!."
