  1. Just noticed this thread has crossed 1 million views, 23k odd replies, 930 pages. I know this is 3 and a half years old but I never intended for this to monopolise the forum back then (I would have thought of a better name otherwise!) Glad to have this as a space for all managers to come. Although I didn't know it at the time, the forum had regressed too much to have multiple threads, individual league threads. At a certain point the quality got spread out, coupled with the forum interface update a lot of the big guys left. I think this has helped keep the forum alive, and I'm

    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

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.

  12. Potentially good news on this. Today I heard that SM has asked some long standing users to join a group with them and work on ideas and updates for the game. So there could be changes coming. What and when I don't know. But wheels are in motion apparently.

  15. Hi all, As you have seen, I have not really been active over the past few months other than updating my preds. It's just been me phasing out of the forum. Now that the reviews are done, I can say it's been a great fun. Didn't think we'd reach to Page 751 (and this thread would last for three years) back in 2016, when the forum is dying. It's still alive, somehow. I'm joining uni in the fall so I plan to move away from SM. The game itself isn't that enjoyable anymore: old UI doesn't work properly, player search bar is broken etc. Predictions are fun but that too is taking more time t

  20. 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.

  26. While you learned gentlemen studiously toil away on divining future player ratings, I am in my secret underground lab working on formation evaluations. I have taken a Division 1 team in five separate Game Worlds. During the pre-season I bought and sold players so that each roster is filled only with 90-rated players. I picked five different formations (442A, 433A, 532, 451A, 422B) and these teams will play the entire season using the same formation I assigned them. I will record win-loss-draws; home and away; league or cup; players form; opponents’ formations and tactics; managed or un-m

SM should be over their holiday's now and probably complete Spain by start of next week and onto England by next Monday (hopefully). In the meantime I'll have a look at Spain and see If any Spanish Clubs need updating and then where SM are at next Monday. Maybe the BIG5 is soon to be finished and I can enter into my spreadsheet analysis phase after a bit of a rest. Cheers Socca...

  40. Well mates, this is my first attempt to do some ratings predictions. First of all an explanation of the Uruguayan League. The League is based in two short tournaments. The first tournament is called "Apertura" and the second one is called "Clausura". In the Apertura the teams play 1 game between each others. Those who play as "home" are drawed and they play as "visitors" in the "Clausura". The winner of the "Apertura" face the winner of the "Clausura" in two games to decide who is the new Uruguayan champion. Another side thing is also played and that is the year's overall (called "La Anual"),

  41. Hi fellas, I mentioned earlier on in the day that I was going to do an 11 full of the best risers in Austria, Russia and Ukraine. This team is what I believe are some of best risers and the players with a considerably amount of potential, so worth keeping after their rise. Obviously if your game world isn’t very competitive then it would be an idea to sell and then buy back in the future. My original plan was to do each league individually but because SM’s reviews seem all over the place currently I’ve decided to combine the 3 leagues. There is probably a good chance that s

Unlikely I will do any more Spanish clubs for this review, but will do my best to at least do all big 5 league teams for the summer review. Regarding smaller leagues - it will be pick and choose based on my time (and how easy it is to do, most probably ruling out Brazil/Argentina/maybe MLS due to no of teams). Cheers and wishing all a Merry Christmas.
