    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managed a team for a long time on SM now so I suspect several parts that I have mentioned below are now less relevant, out of date or even completely wrong, for example I believe unmanaged teams can now use any of 20+ formations so using 3-5-2 to beat the previously default 4-4-2 isn't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.

    I know that quite a few of these have already been mentionned, but I really don't have the time (ironic, no?) to search them all. Consider it a compliment, I am not taking credit for them. If you have any thanks to offer, thank Teb. He's the one responsible. If it weren't for his Spartak having all the talent in GC1, I never would've had to make this list This is a random list. Some for the future, some for now... I won't highlight the best of them, if you can't be bothered to read a bit, well, you don't really deserve them. 1.Blerti HADARI - 18 - 70 - M - KF Tirana Though he hasn't made any appearances yet for the top, an only on sm, Albanian side, he has shun at the U19 and is known as one of the top prospects in this country. He has also just started playing for Tirana this year, and turned 18 in september, so he is a "young" 18. 2.Ergis SORRA - 19 - 70 - F - KF Tirana He has also impressed in the Albanian U19 side, and has been waiting for his chance for a while. He is finally getting matches in with the Albanian giants, and could see a +5 or more rise in the next rating changes. 3.Juan MERCIER - 28 - 84 - CM/RM - Argentinos Juniors Mercier joined Argentinos last season and took a while to establish himself, but he is now a starter, having started all but two matches. He also has a goal to his name, a small rise should be in store. 4.Gonzalo PROSPERI - 23 - 82 - LB - Argentinos Juniors Prosperi is another who joined Argentinos and took a while to adapt. After one season at Godoy Cruz, he was having trouble getting some time on the pitch. That's no longer a concern, he has started 8 of 12, adding a sub appearance. 5.Jeronimo BARRALES - 21 - 85 - F - Banfield Since breaking into the Banfield lineup with a bang (hat trick) in 2006, Barrales has played second fiddle to both Pavlovic (Arsenal) and Cvitanich (Ajax). Now, as the stats show, he leads the Banfield front line, starting all but two, in which he featured as a sub. Also has two goals, could be in for a rise, defitatly on to watch out for. 6.Nilo CARRETERO - 22 - 69 - LM/AM - Banfield Since I did my thread on the whole of Banfield last year, I've been keeping an eye on him. Makes a substitute appearance every 10 games or so, it's disappointing, but he is a decent player, who just needs his chance. 7.Emanuel PIO - 20 - 80 - CM/DM - Banfield So here's a guy I totally omitted while doing a thread on his whole team. Brilliant, Mark. Anyways, this 20 year old gem has started all but one match this season. He has the 4th most minutes on Banfield, and is the lowest rated starter. 8.Jesus DATOLO - 24 - 88 - LM/AM - Boca Juniors Datolo, in my opinion, should be a 90. We will see if SM will be generous. Datolo has played all but one match this season on the flank. He is starting to be well known for his perfectly placed crosses. I wouldn't be surprised to see him move to Europe sooner or later. He has 2 goals to his name this season. 9.Juan FORLIN - 20 - 71 - CB - Boca Juniors Forlin has made two starts and one substitute appearance this year; he is on a a thin backline for Boca. Being able to play anywhere in defense, he is being brought in slowly, but should start making an impact in the coming months. 10.Javier Hernan GARCIA - 21 - 80 - Gk - Boca Juniors Garcia started coming in for the injured Caranta early in the season. After Caranta returned, bad form sent him back to the bench, and Garcia has been performing admirable. If the changes were today, he's be an 84. But the longer we wait, the higher he goes. He was also Sergio Romero's backup for the Argentina team that won the U20 World Cup. 11.Pablo MOUCHE - 21 - 76 - F - Boca Juniors Another benched member of that U20 team, Mouche is well rated in the Boca system, he has even been given squad #7. Having appeared in 4 matches, his goal and assist look pretty good. Has stiff competition up front, but he is one to watch. 12.Ezequiel MUNOZ - 18 - 75 - CB - Boca Juniors Hasn't broken into Boca yet, but there are already Milan talks for this talented 18 year old. Buy him now if you have the chance. 13.Osvaldo NICOLAS GAITAN - 20 - 72 - CM - Boca Juniors Highly rated 20 year old has only started one game. BUT, he has 10 sub apps, totalling 282 mins. Oh, and did I forget to mention his 4 goals? 14.Ricardo NOIR - 21 - 73 - F - Boca Juniors Starting to get annoyed at Boca. Where do they find these? Noir has been exellent this season, picking up 6 starts and 5 sub apps, for 565 mins. He has 2 goals and two assists in the process, another big riser. 15.Gabriel PALETTA - 22 - 87 - CB - Boca Juniors Liverpool reject is doing great at Boca. Started every single match, played every single minute. Is the lowest rated of the back 4. Hm. 89? 90? 16.Fabian VARGAS - 28 - 88 - DM - Boca Juniors The only player other than Paletta to start every match, this Inter disappointment is holding the young attack of Boca quite well. The Columbian international alse has two goals to his name. I'd rate him a 90. 17.Lucas VIATRI - 21 - 75 - F - Boca Juniors The pick of the bunch for Boca. This 75 rated striker has started 11, subbed into 1, scored 6 goals, and added 4 assists to his name. Absolutly unbelievable stats for a newcomer to the squad. Maybe more young Argentines should start their careers in Ecuador, then move to Venezuela before going to a big name club! 18.Mauro BOSELLI - 23 - 85 - F - Estudiantes He was always behind so many great players at Boca, never really got a fair shot. Well, fair shot he has. He has taken advantage of it, too. Taking a load off the aging José Calderon, Boselli has 9 starts and 2 subs, scoring 6 and assisting on 2. Could very well be a future 90. 19.Ivan MORENO Y FABIANESI - 29 - 88 - CM/RM - Estudiantes Playing most games alongside Veron, and doing a great job. I wouldn't be surprised to see "El Matador" head back to his homeland to a mid-class Liga side. I think he should be an 89-90. 20.Juan Jose ARRAYA - 22 - 80 - CF - Gimnasia de Jujuy 22 year old has become a regular, he has 2 goals in 8 starts, plus 5 subs. Rise to 83. 21.Nestor MARTINERA - 21 - 79 - F - Gimansia de la Plata 21 year old is starting to break in. He has a goal on 423 minutes for Gimnasia. 22.Franco NIELL - 25 - 81 - F - Gimnasia de la Plata Tiny striker (5'4) is back in Argentina after his loan to DC United of the USA. He is getting big minutes this season, 9 starts and 2 subs, punching in 2 goals. 23.Nelson IBANEZ - 26 - 74 - G - Godoy Cruz Starting keeper, what else needs to be said. When a 74 rated keeper starts every match in top flight Argentina... Rise expected, about 80? 24.Ariel ROJAS - 22 - 71 - M - Godoy Cruz Rojas has taken everyone by srprise by taking a midfield job in Godoy Cruz. He has started 6, and subbed in 3, totalling 542 mins. 25.Leandro CARUSO - 24 - 75 - W - Godoy Cruz Went off the map in 2006 after a few years at Arsenal de Sarandi, but boy is he back. 4 goals in 8 starts, adding in 5 sub appearance, he is now a striker, and a key striker in Godoy's survival in the top flight. 26.Ivan NADAL - 21 - 73 - LB - Huracan Young left back hasn't taken Huracan by storm (no pun intended), but he has been a regular substitute, which should mean a few extra rating points. 27.Juan Manuel INSAURRALDE - 24 - 82 - CB - Newell's Old Boys Insaurralde has made the open starter's job his on the Newell defensive line with inspired performances, and two goals as well. 10 starts added in, and he should get a +3/+4 28.Diego TORRES - 26 - 83 - F/W - Newell's Old Boys After losing a striker in the transfer window, they promoted Diego Torres to the pitch. 2 goals in 11 starts gives him a small rise. 29.Leandro TORRES - 20 - 79 - RM - Newell's Old Boys Good year for the Torres' at Newell. This younger one, who has stuck to his hometown club throughout his youth, has 660 minutes played, 8 starts and 3 substitute appearances. Due for a nice little rise. 30.German CAFFA - 28 - 74 - G - Newell's Old Boys Is clubless on the database, but he has signed with Newll as a free agent. Has 4 starts so should have a few points increase. 31.Gabriel MERCADO - 21 - 85 - CB/RB - Racing Club Former U-20 international has been slowly taking over a starting spot last season. This season, it is his. 10 starts of 13, he should go up to 87. 32.Lihue Dario PRICHODA - 19 - 77 - RM - Racing Club Prichoda is one of the few teenagers who has made an impact this season. He has 7 sub appearances to go with his 6 starts. 33.Franco ZUCULINI - 18 - 78 - RM/CM - Racing Club Zuculini is one of the few teenagers who has made an impact this season. He has 13 starts, out of a possibility of 13. Chipped in with 1 goal, he is a must buy. 34.Jose SCHAFFER - 22 - 74 - LB - Racing Club For some reason, he spend one year in Sweden with Gothenburg, but never made the first side. It's not a problem he has had in Avellanada, starting every signle match for Racing. Must buy. 35.Pablo CABALLERO - 22 - 71 - Racing Club I don't know much about him to be honest, but he has 9 sub appearances. 36.Mateo MUSACCHIO - 18 - 75 - CB/RB - River Plate Won't get a rise, but he is one for the future. Already a U20 international, Musacchio made his primera début at the age of 16. He is very highly touted. 37.Gustavo BOU - 18 - 73 - AM/F - River Plate I'm reluctant to give ANY increases to a River Plate who are dead last, but Bou is turning out to be their silver lining. 4 starts, 1 goal, and he is playing very well of late. 38.Jorge BROUN - 22 - 80 - G - Rosario Central Rosario have also been underachieving, but it would be very harsh to deny the man who has started every match but one a rise. 39.Alexis DANELON - 22 - 82 - RB/RM - Rosario Central Well sure, Rosario have been bad, but at least they are developping new youth, unlike River. Danelon has started every match and is in for an increase. Has also scored twice, which is unbelievable for a 5'8 defender. 40.Diego BRAGHIERI - 21 - 82 - CB/LB - Rosario Central Braghieri is another main cog of the youth movement, being solid at centre back, he has 11 starts under his belt. 41.Mariano PAGLIALUNGA - 20 - 72 - RM/LM - Rosario Central One of the younger players, he has 3 starts and 5 subs this season to add to a few appearances late last season. He scored a goal against Velez, should be in for a nice little rise. 42.Jonathan David GOMEZ - 18 - 75 - AM - Rosario Central Unexpectedly jumped into the squad this season and matches Paglialunga for appearances. Should get a small rise, he is one to watch for the future. 43.Nicolas BIANCHI ARCE - 21 - 82 - CB - San Lorenzo Starting defender for the league leaders? Yeah I guess he could be in for a rise. 44.Jose SAN ROMAN - 20 - 77 - RB/RM - Tigre 45.Pablo FONTANELLO - 24 -77 - CB - Tigre Tigre are surprisingly doing very well this season, these two defenders both have 6 starts and 2 sub appearances, both over 500 mins. This should get them to 80, at least. 46.Marton Gerardo MOREL - 28 - 84 - AM/F - Tigre Well, sure he is rated well. But this guy has quitly achieved 9 goals in ten games. This eserves a small rise, no? 47.Omar TOBIO - 19 - 80 - CB - Velez Sarsfield Tobio made his name last year, I think he was in the high 60's or low 70's. Anyways, he hasn't let go, starting 8 and subbing into 2, he deserves his 85. 48.Ricardo GASTON DIAZ - 20 - 80 - RB/RM Velez Sarsfield Well, he has played more than Tobio, so I expect about the same rise. He has started in 10 and subbed into two. 49.Ivan BELLA - 19 - 75 - RM - Velez Sarsfield Not exactly lighting the world on fire, but a start and 5 subs should be enough to gain him a few points. Keep an eye on him. 50.Jonathan CRISTALDO - 19 - 80 - F - Velez Sarsfield A biit like Tobio, he went up a lot last time, but hasn't stopped. 4 goals in 11 starts should get him to 85 as well. 51.Paul REID - 29 - 74 - RB - Adelaide United Sure, he won't ever be huge, but could be in for a +4, he has started 8 of ten for Adelaide. 52.Scott JAMIESON - 20 - 75 - LM - Adelaide United 20 year old has started 9 and subbed into one. Based on those stats, a small rise is expected. He spent three years with Bolton, so Europe isn't out of the question 53.Bradley PORTER - 21 - 73 - CM/DM - Central Coast Mariners After a season with the feeder club, he was ready to make the step. 9 out of 10 starts later, he is in for a rise. 54.Evan BERGER - 21 - 64 - LM - Melbourne Victory He will be a +10 riser, at least. Though the value won't go up by much. Anyways, he has 9 starts out of ten for Melbourne, and subbed into the other. 55.Jobe WHEELHOUSE - 23 - 74 - Newcastle United Jets Wheelhouse was injured for a whole season, but has come back now. He has 9/10 starts. 56.Marko JESIC - 19 - 68 - F - Newcastle United Jets Had to mention him because of his Wikipedia entry : "Marko Jesic is the best player going around and is set to sign with Chelsea F.c" That being said, he has one start and one goal this season. So who knows 57.Shannon COLE - 18 - 68 - LB/LM - Sydney FC He is a big riser for the A-League. Could possibly get +10. The left wingback has 9 starts, 1 sub appearance, 2 goals, and has been called up to the Australian national team. And he's just 18. 58.Oliver PUSZTAI - 27 - 77 - RB/CB - Austria Karnten He finally moved away from his native Hungary. Pusztai is a defender who has started 8 in Austria, which is good for 81/82. 59.Haris BUKVA - 20 - 78 - W/AM - Austria Karnten After a few seasons on loan, this youth squad talent has 7 starts and 7 subs for the big team. Should rise to about 82 for now, talent to keep an eye on. 60.Atdhe NUHIU - 19 - 74 - CF - Austria Karnten U20 Austrian international, but wants to play for Albania at the senior level, his application for citizenship is in. On the domestic scene, has 7 subs, totaling 100 mins. So keep an eye out. 61.Rubin OKOTIE - 21 - 83 - CF - FK Austria Wien This Hulk of a man, born in Pakistan, has been a part of the NT at every level so far, eventually he will make the jump. For now though, he has become one of the main players for Wien, with 4 goals in 14 apps. Should jump to 85. 62.Thomas PIERMAYR - 19 - 74 - RM/RB - LASK Linz The defense is pretty much set and there is no breaking into it. However. Piermayr is doing a pretty good job. 1 start only, but 11 subs totalling 319 minutes, and 2 goals. Surpringly the subs are mainly for Gansterer and not 39 year old warrior Michael Baur. 63.Marc JANKO - 25 - 85 - CF - Red Bull Salzburg Where did he come from? Goes from unknown, to absolutly amazing! I've checked a few sources, including the official Bundesliga website, they all say the same thing. Marc Janko has 9 starts, 2 subs, 993 minutes, SEVENTEEN goals and 3 assists. AND he is now a player on the international stage for Austria. Get him. Now 64.Christoph STUCKLER - 28 - 78 - D/DM - Rheindorf Altach He has started every game and has 2 goals. Rise to 81. 65.Stefan MAIERHOFER - 26 - 85 - CF - SK Rapid Wien 6'8 ex Bayern man is also now in the Austrian national setup, he has played a bit more than Janko (14 starts), but hasn't scored nearly as much (10 goals). Then again, since when is 10 goals in 14 matches something to laugh at? I'm curious to see what SM will do with these two skillful giants. 66.Josef SCHICKLGRUBER - 41 - 82 - G - SK Sturm Graz Yes, he is 41. He has taken over the starters role and should be 84. Since when does age matter for a keeper? 67.Pavel NEKHAICHIK - 20 - 74 - LM - BATE Forgive me for knowing nothing about it, at least I tried Belarus. This kid scored against Zenit in the Champions League, and is apparently doing great domestically as well. 68.Aleksandr IAKOVENKO - 21 - 80 - AM/LM - Anderlecht Not much of a rise, maybe 83? He has 2 starts and 5 sub appearances, but 2 goals to his name. 69.Bakary Sare - 18 - 72 - CB/DM - Anderlecht Well, he has over 100 mins for Anderlecht. And he wears # 99. So he must be good. He also played in UEFA cup against Bayern as a 17 year old... so they like him, obviously. 70.Chris KAMULETE-MAKIESE - 21 - 73 - CF - Charleroi One start and 4 sub appearances, should be 76. Keep an eye if he keeps going. He is on loan from Lille. 71.Gertjan DE METS - 21 - 72 - DM - Club Brugge He has 272 mins in the first ten matches, so we should see more of him as the season goes along. Deserves 77 for now. 72.Daniel CHAVEZ - 20 - 82 - F - Club Brugge Scouts are raving about Sanchez, and so many clubs want him, it's hard to believe. He has 1 goal only this season, used mainly in a sub role, 8 subs, to add to his 1 start. 73.Dieter WITTESAELE - 19 - 75 - F/W - Dender EH 3 goals in 8 matches, 3 of them starts. Bought from Gent in the summer, don't be surprised if he goes back to a big club. 74.Roberto ROSALES - 19 - 83 - RM/RB - KAA Gent Already a Venezuelan international, Rosales has started every single match. He is solid, I wouldn't be surprised to see an 85. 75.Yanis PAPASSARANTIS - 20 - 75 - LM - KSV Roeselare Papassarantis, of obvious Greek descent, broke into the first team this year. He has 6 starts and 1 sub appearance, making for 527 mins. We can expect a 78-79 for now. 76.Ouwo Moussa MAAZOU - 20 - 80 - CF - Lokeren The Nigerien (Niger, not Nigeria) striker has made quite an impression this year : in 9 starts, he has 6 goals. 77.Vitorio VILLANO - 20 - 73 - RM/AM - Tubize I'd be surprised if he stays in Tubize long. Exiting flank player, started 6 and subbed in once. He isn't popular in Liege, after injuring Defour in practice last season. 78.Pereira EDSON - 23 - 80 - G - Atletico Mineiro Has take over the starters role this season, and has played 20 matches this season. 79.Rodrigues MARCIO ARAUJO - 24 - 83 - CM/DM - Atletico Mineiro Led Botafogo in time on the pitch, including defenders and keepers. Over 2500 mins, in 30 starts, and added in two goals. He should get a nice little rise. 80.Henrique RENAN OLIVEIRA - 18 - 75 - AM/F - Atletico Mineiro One of the leaders of Botafogo, we have a potential +10 here. 22 starts for the attacking mid, and scored 5 goals. 81.Jose CASTILLO - 25 - 79 - CF - Atletico Mineiro Not a key player, but still managed 14 starts and 8 sub appearances. Also has 2 goals to his name. 82.Rodrigo GALATTO - 25 - 82 - G - Atletico Paranaense Took over the starters role. 26 starts for Atletico Paranaense. Rise to 85. 83.Luis CHICO - 21 - 72 - CM - Atletico Paranaense Yet another possibility of +10. Chico hasn't gotten on the scoresheeet, but had 17 starts and 4 sub appearances, over 1700 minutes of play. 84.Rodrigues RENAN - 19 - 73 - DM - Atletico Paranaense Renan isn't as much of a riser as the others, but he is still a good buy for smaller teams. Over 500 minutes, he has played 6 full games. 85.dos Santos RENAN - 19 - 78 - G - Botafogo Unlike rumours spreading, he hasn't taken over the starters role. He is sharing it with Castillo. However, Castillo is at 86, and the are about even (15 starts to Castillo's 18). 86.Jose da Silva EDSON - 22 - 75 - CB - Botafogo Not going to be a big riser by any means, but he does have over 600 minutes for Botafogo's defense. 87.Luciano TRIGUINHO - 29 - 80 - LB/LM - Botafogo Botafogo have kept a pretty consistent back line most of the season, and Triguinho was in it. The others are rated between 85 and 87. His 2000 minutes should get him the same. 88.Garcia Leal ZE CARLOS - 28 - 83 - LB/DM - Botafogo Ze Carlos should be switched to DM, that's where he has been playing. Anyways, 12 starts 9 subs, for 4 goals, should get him an increase. 89.Farias VANDERLEI - 24 - 75 - G - Coritiba Coritiba are a team who have been outstanding, and their starting keepr deserves a +7/+8. Started 19 this season. 90.Donizeti MAURICIO - 23 - 82 - CB - Coritiba Leader of this squad. 4 goals from the defense in 2666 minutes, that's 30 starts, most on the team. 91.Trevizan FELIPE - 21 - 71 - CB - Coritiba Another big riser from Brazil. 1 goal in 1500 mins, 16 of those coming from starts. 92.Alexandre GUARU - 26 - 72 - LB - Coritiba More of a LB/LM, but we'll take it. He has 735 mins this season, should be around 77. Also has a goal. 93.Santos RODRIGO MANCHA - 22 - 78 - DM - Coritiba Second on the team in starts, he has nearly 2400 mins. Stats speak for themselves over a whole season. 94.Carneiro KEIRRISON - 19 - 83 - F - Coritiba The kid has 25 starts, and 1 sub. He has been talked about a lot, mainly because of his 16 goals. 95.Henrique BRUNO AGUIAR - 22 - 75 - CB - Figueirense 18 starts and 6 subs make him a key player in the backline, though they have been underachieving. 96.Silva WILLIAM MATHEUS - 18 - 73 - LB/CB - Figueirense Not quite as important as Bruno Aguiar, but almost 1000 mins nonetheless for the 18 year old. 97.Antonio MARQUINHO - 22 - 80 - DM - Figueirense One of the playmakers of this side, he played 16 full matches, scoring twice. 98.Vinicius TARTA - 19 - 77 - AM/F - Figueirense Has appeared in most matches, 11 as a starter and 12 as a substitute. Chipped in with 2 goals. 99.Bitencourt MAICON - 18 - 70 - F - Figueirense Almost reached 500 mins. 4 starts, 5 subs. 100.Gomes FERNANDO - 22 - 80 - DM/CM - Goias Nearly reached 2000 minutes, great buy for those who got him at 74. 101.Leandro VICTOR - 25 - 85 - G - Gremio Well, when you start every match for a top Brazilian side, you deserve 88. 102.Humberto REVER - 23 - 83 - CB - Gremio Closer to 3000 minutes than 2500, which is amazing. Also added 2 goals. One of the players who has played the most in the entire league. I think he should be pushing 88 as well. 103.Rohde FELIPE MATTIONI - 20 - 72 - RB - Gremio Another big riser, he has 9 starts, all recent, and 2 sub appearances, nearly 900 minutes. 104.Silva Santos HELDER - 20 - 80 - LB/LM - Gremio Started off well, but tailed off, isn't playing as much. However 1300 minutes should still get him an 83. 105.Fabio PEREIRA - 29 - 86 - CB - Gremio Yes, 4 Gremio defenders worth mentionning. Pereira has over 2200 minutes, as well as a goal. Should be closer to 89, though will probably get 87 only. 106.Henrique WILLIAN MAGRAO - 21 - 80 - Gremio 3 goals in 1900 minutes, over 22 starts, Willian is one of the best buys you can get in Brazil... 107.Pereira RAFAEL CARIOCA - 19 - 80 - Gremio ... however, it's not even close to what Carioca has achieved. Over 2500 minutes from midfield, Rafael could hit 87 if SM arn't too conservative. The pick of the bunch, has already been linked with a move to Italy. 108.de Souza DOUGLAS COSTA - 18 - 75 - Gremio Probably the best prospect on this team, has just started playing recently. Has been linked to pretty much every big European side, the kid will be a star. 1 goal in 5 starts should assure a small rise for now. 109.Melo CLEMER - 40 - 85 - G - Internacional Now that Renan is at Valencia, he got his job back. Up to 87. 110.Bittencourt DANNY MORAIS - 23 - 74 - CB - International 1000 minutes in the Inter back 4 is worthy of a nice rise for Danny. 111.Barcellos TAISON - 20 - 75 - AM - Internacional The fact that he has started 15 and subbed in 10 is amazing, considering that he has d'Allessandro and Dani Carvalho on the same team, in the same position. Taison has a 33 million euro release clause, and is a must-buy. 112.Leal Fonseca FERNANDO - 27 - 75 - G - Ipatinga Started about half the matches, should be good for 80. 113.Jesus Sousa DERLEY - 22 - 72 - CM - Nautico He has started lately, stringing together 6 starts. Should be good for an increase. 114.Bruno EDUARDO ERE - 20 - 75 - DM - Nautico 1116 minutes holding up the midfield of Nautico. Nice rise coming in. 115.dos Santos MAURICIO - 20 - 73 - CB - Palmeiras First of a good few Palmeiras risers. He has 1 goal in 10 starts, 900 minutes played. 116.Antonio FABINHO CAPIXABA - 24 - 72 - RB - Palmeiras He has 8 starts and 3 subs, will increase a few points. 117.Jose da Costa JUMAR - 22 - 73 - DM - Palmeiras He is regularly subbed off, but 13 starts speak for themselves. 900 minutes. 118.Laurindo SANDRO SILVA - 24 - 73 - DM - Palmeiras One of the biggest risers here, I think he is guaranteed a +10. He has two goals, started 19 matches and subbed in 5 times. Big riser. 119.Renato DOUGLAS - 25 - 80 - G - Santos Took over the starting role from Fabio Santos. 17 apps should mean a rise. 120.Santos ZE LUIS - 29 - 85 - DM/CM - Sao Paulo Ze Luis has taken over Sao Paulo's midfield since arriving this season. 1 goal in 27 starts, will hopefully get his 88. 121.Rinaldo KASSIO - 21 - 72 - AM - Sport Recife 9 starts and 5 subs, 1 goal for weak side in Brazil, should still get his rise. 122.Soares Pina EDU - 19 - 72 - LB - Vasco da Gama 885 mins over 12 starts gives this youngster a good rise. 123.Silva de Oliveira VICTOR - 20 - 72 - CB - Vasco da Gama 8 starts for this one, should follow Edu, with Edu rising more. 124.Santo ALEX TEXEIRA - 18 - 77 - AM/F - Vasco da Gama Biggest riser on Vasco, this teenager has 5 goals in 20 starts, + 5 subs. Should move to Europe within the next little while. 125.Reis da Silva WALLACE - 20 - 72 - CB - Vitoria Nearly hit 1000 minutes on a rising Victoria squad. 126.Santos WILLIANS SANTANA - 20 - 76 - AM - Vitoria Told you to get him when he was at 70... now up to 26 starts, 2128 minutes, and 2 goals. 127.Goncalves MARQUINHOS - 19 - 80 - AM/F - Vitoria He has been brilliant, leader of the pack. 2152 mins, 7 goals and 3 assists, he is the creative force behind this young squad. 128.Aleksandar KOSORIC - 21 - 72 - D - Slavija One of the top defenders for the Bosnian side, he is heavily involved in the U21 setup for Bosnia. 129.Emilio VARGAS - 25 - 74 - D - Cobreloa Slowly finding his way into the Chilean side's lineup. He had 5 starts and 4 sub appearances so far. 130.Luis PAVEZ - 20 - 78 - DM - Palestino Has jumped into the starting line for a squad where most players are rated 82. 131.Enzo GUTIERREZ - 22 - 78 - AM - Rangers de Talca Has featured in every match so far for the Rnagers, but in a ratings matter, that should only get him to 80. 132.Fernando CORDERO - 21 - 78 - LM - Union Espinola Has been jumping into the starting lineup most of the season, should hit 80. 133.Alfredo Padilla - 19 - 80 - F - Atletico Junior 19 year old is their starting striker now, 2 goals in 14 Apertuna games. 134.Raul ASPRILLA - 16 - 70 - F - Boyaca Chico Started 7 in the Apertuna, but has tailed off, with only 2 sub appearances in the Clausura. 135.Danny AGUILAR - 22 - 75 - M - Deportive Cali Has played in almost every game, 5 starts and 7 subs, for one of the top Columbian teams. Decent playmaker. 136.John HURTADO - 24 - 81 - CB - Deportivo Cali Started all but one for one of the top Columbian teams. Deserves an 84. 137.Rene HIGUITA - 42 - ?? - G - Deportivo Pereira Yes, the legendary Higuita. Needs to be added, he has played 15 games in the Clausura. 138.Dorlan PABON - 20 - 72 - M - Envigado Finally scored his first goal. Pavon is a decent midfielder, who has started 7 matches and subbed into 5 more. 139.Tomislav PAVLICIC - 24 - 71 - M - Cibalia I can't find much as far as Croatian statistics, all I know is that he has two goals for a very weak team. 140.Milan BADELJ - 19 - 78 - AM/CM - Dinamo Zagreb Again, going by goals only, he has two. However, we do know that he is touted as Modric's replacement. Very good player. 141.Luis IBANEZ - 20 - 72 - LB/LM - Dinamo Zagreb Argentine has one goal since signing from Boca Juniors 142.Ivan MILICEVIC - 20 - 72 - CF - Osijek He has 4 goals this season, so he must be doing something right. 143.Mehmed ALISPAHIC - 20 - 74 - RM - Sibenik The midfielder has 2 goasls so far this season. I wish I could get apps, but can't read Croatian. 144.Benjamin ONWUACHI - 24 - 78 - F - APOEL Since joining Nicosia on loan, the Nigerian striker has 4 goals in 5 matches. Definatly worth a shot. 145.Martin ZIVNY - 27 - 78 - CB/RB - 1. FC Brno 848 minutes in the opening 12 games make him a starter, he deserves another +3. 146.Lukas MARECEK - 18 - 78 - CM - 1. FC Brno Marecek is a rare 18 year old starting regularly in the Czech elite league. Scratch that, he has started all 12. Definatly buy him if you can. 147.Antonin FANTIS - 16 - 74 - F - 1.FK Pribram Not even close to being 17 yet. Anyways, the 1992 born striket has been getting minutes, nearly 200. Rise or not is debatable, but he is definatly making a name for himself. 148.Ondrej CELUSTKA - 19 - 75 - D - FC Tescoma Zlin Wasn't expected to have a big role, But he has taken it anyway. Has started in 7 of 12. 149.Zdenek KONECNIK - 21 - 74 - LM - FC Tescoma Zlin He is ready to take over the left flank on a permanent basis. Over 400 mins in 5 starts, he will assume more responsability as the season goes on. 150.Petr MACH - 23 - 72 - D - Mlada Boleslav Mach is one of the best picks of the Czech league, 729 mins, 8 starts. He should go up quite a bit if he keeps going. 151.Martin DOLEZAL - 18 - 72 - F - Sigma Olomouc Not exactly shattering the league. 5 sub appearances do deserve a small rise for now, and he's just 18, so he will get a ton of chances. 152.Lukas HAJNIK - 23 - 74 - CB - SK Kladno Hajnik has 4 starts for a bad Kladno side. 153.Vit BENES - 20 - 75 - CB - SK Kladno Same story. 5 starts, 3 subs for a bad Kladno. 154.Tijani BELAID - 21 - 85 - AM/RM - Slavia Praha From terrible teams to great teams. This Slavia is dominant, and led by youth. The Tunisian international has been phenomenal, he has 6 goals in about 800 minutes. He has finally found a home, after spells at Inter and PSV. Don't be surprised if he moves to a bigger club. 155.Tomas NECID - 19 - 83 - F - Slavia Praha (CSKA Moskva) Lets hope he doesnt rot at CSKA like Janczyk and Kalouda. He will join them in January. But for now, Necid is having fun in the Czech Republic. 9 goals in 11 matches, he has been awesome. 156.Gianluca LITTERI - 20 - 72 - F - Slavia Praha (Inter) He is in on loan from Inter, expect him to have a bigger role when Necid is gone. For now, he has just made two appearances though. 1 goal. 157.Bono WILFRIED - 19 - 74 - F - Sparta Praha Transferred from Wazi in the summer, he was the topscorer in the Ivorian League last season, and JUST turned 19 in October. Only has 3 sub apps, but he will get chances as he adapts. 158.Vaclav KADLEC - 16 - ?? - F - Sparta Praha 16 year old Kadlec has 2 sub appearances. Don't know much about him, but he's freaking 16 playing for the most historic club in the Republic. 159.Petr JIRACEK - 22 - 75 - M - Viktoria Plzen Jiracek is now a regular, having started 9 matches, and 3 sub apps as well. 160.Lucas CACA - 26 - 82 - W/F - Aalbork BK After a few seasons in Serie B (Brazil), DEDE's (Borussia) younger brother is playing well in Denmark. He has 7 starts and 4 subs, totalling 3 goals for the Danish champs. 161.Ousman JALLOW - 20 - 75 - CF - Brøndby IF Since transferring from the UAE, the Gambian international has 5 starts, and 4 goals. He is a must buy. Arsenal and Chelsea wanted him, but work permits stopêd that. 162.Daniel WASS - 19 - 80 - RB/DM - Brøndby IF Wass in a Danish U14, U15, u16, u17, u18, u19 and u21 international. Skipped u20 because of his play at Brøndby. With his 900 mins this season, he deserves another rise. 163.Mathias Zanka JORGENSEN - 18 - 80 - CB - FC København Copenhagen have retaken their spot as best team in Denmark as Aalborg is faltering domestically, and Zanka deserves as big a rise as any. Zanka was linked with Arsenal and Liverpool, but had a major injury causing him to miss some time in 2007. Now, he's regained his status as the hottest Danish prospect. He is close to 1000 mins, 9 of 12 starts and 2 subs. He plays for U21 as an 18 year old. Exellent prospect. 164.Simon RICHTER - 23 - 78 - LB/RB - FC Nordsjaelland Made the wingback job his. He has 1 goal in 9 starts. 165.Mike RODRIGUEZ - 19 - 80 - CM - Barcelona SC Rodriguez has 8/14 starts in the Second Fase of the Ecuadorian League, Barcelona finished first. 166.Edison PRECIADO - 22 - 77 - CF - Deportivo Cuenca 6 starts, 3 subs and 3 goals for the striker who is starting to be a fixture in Ecuador. 167.Fabricio GUEVARA - 19 - 80 - CM - El Nacional Only player to start 13 of 14 matches for El Nacional. Rise to 83/84? 168.Jefferson PINTO - 18 - 77 - CM - Emelec Pinto has become a starter in the midfield, and I've seen him play, he is solid for an 18 year old. 169.Marcos CAICEDO - 16 - 74 - LM - Emelec You wouldn't think so, but Caicedo has 4 starts in the Clausura so far and is actually a good riser. 170.Alexander DOMINGUEZ - 21 - 80 - G - LDU Quito Has become the league starter ahead of Cevallos for the Copa Libertadores winners. In for a nice rise. Cevallos seems to play Cups, and Dominguez plays league. 171.Israel CHANGO - 19 - 79 - AM - LDU Quito Chango Jaramillo as he is known has become a very influential player for LDU, starting 11 matches in the Second Fase of the Ecuadorian league. Definate riser. 172.Jefferson LARA - 18 - 76 - M - LDU Quito What makes LDU so special is that they can bring in youth and they will perform as well as the seniors. Lara started 7 times in the league to relieve the tired COPA vets. 173.Byron CAMACHO - 20 - 74 - CM - LDU Quito Unlike the other Quito players I have mentionned, Camacho has played in 4 copa matches to go with his 6 League starts. 174.Edison CAICEDO - 18 - 80 - CM - Macara Edison is the only Macara man(or kid) to start every single Clausura match. And they didnt have the cup to worry about. Should go to about 82/83 as they arn't a top notch team. 175.Henry ANIER - 17 - 77 - F - Flora Tallinn Has 14 goals in this season, which makes him 7th in the league after 34 matches. 176.Artjom DMITRIJEV - 19 - 77 - F - TMVK 12 goals in the same leauge, he is 9th in the league. Most of the best players are around 81 177.Jari NIKKILA - 19 - 70 - RB - FC Haka Finnish risers don't go too high. He has 7/26 starts. 178.Jaakko LEPOLA - 18 - 70 - CM - FC Honka Only reason I'm posting these is to make a few thousand k. He has 5 starts, 9 subs. 179.Drilon SHALA - 21 - 72 - F - FC Lahti 13 starts, 7 subs and 4 goals for high flying Lahti. 180.Sebastian MANNSTROM - 20 - 72 - W - FF Jaro 17 starts, 6 subs, 4 goals for minnows Jaro. 181.Tony ODORISIO - 23 - 72 - DM - KooTeePee 13 starts and 3 subs for KooTeePee, who have won 1 of their last 24. 182.Chris JAMES - 21 - 70 - CM - Tampere United 13 starts for a much better team, also added 4 subs and 3 goals. 183.Remy RIOU - 21 - 86 - G - Auxerre Riou is an athletic keeper who has transferred to Auxerre from Olympique Lyonnais. He has played every minute for the club this season. 184.Moussa NARRY - 22 - 84 - DM - Auxerre Ghanaian international has made some noise since arriving from Sahel in the summer window. He has started 10 of the 12 matches, playing 815 mins. 185.Maxime JASSE - 20 - 70 - LB/DM - Auxerre The experienced U21 (8 goals in 18 matches) has made 3 sub appearances totalling 16 minutes. No rise yet, but keep an eye out. 186.Youssef ADNANE - 23 - 74 - F - Caen Adnane, former Brest product, has started three and subbed one. 187.Sofiane FEGHOULI - 18 - 83 - AM - Grenoble Grenoble are already bracing for bids from England, Spain and Italy for this wonderkid, who already has 11 starts this year to go with 26 last year. He has a great future, pick him up if you can. 188.Yannick BOLI - 20 - 73 - CF - Le Havre The 20 year old is on loan from PSG.

He is a very highly rated talent, son of the great Abedi PELE. 198.Lamine GASSAMA - 19 - 78 - RB/CB - Lyon Gassama is being used to replace injured defenders in Lyon.

Has 5 goals also, definatly due for a rise. 218.Ludovic GUERRIERO - 23 - 80 - DM/CM - Ajaccio Guerriero has just transferred from Nancy, where he only played in 10 matches in 4 seasons.

He is rising fast in the second division. 229.Ahmed KASHI - 19 - 73 - CM - Chateauroux This youngster has 3 starts and a sub appearance, totalling 310 mins.

Definate talent to snap up. 233.Cesar SEBASTIAN RIBAS - 20 - 77 - CF - Dijon FCO Prior to this season, he had only played 3 matches on loan with Spezia, and one coppa italia match for Inter.

He has 3 goals to his name, and is sure to be a name to watch. 234.Bakari KONE - 20 - 77 - CB - Guingamp No, Marseille's tiny hitman isn't the only Bakari Kone making noise.

Has 5 goals in 900 minutes, it's enough for an 85 imo. 237.Oumar SISSOKO - 21 - 72 - G - Metz Malian international, future starter for club and country.

And you have to love that hairdo. 331.Saidi NTIBAZONKIZA - 21 - 76 - F/W - NEC Nijmegen Starting striker, and leading scorer. 8 starts, 1 sub, 702 minutes, 3 goals. 332.Stijn WUYTENS - 19 - 75 - DM - PSV Wuytens is a well known riser, having started 7 and played 574 minutes. He also added in a goal and an assist. 333.Donovan SLIJNGARD - 21 - 73 - LB/CB - Sparta Rotterdam 6 starts for the 21 year old, he has played 537 minutes for a weak Rotterdam. 334.Kevin STROOTMAN - 18 - 73 - AM/LM - Sparta Rottedam Same story as Slijngard, exept he has 545 minutes. 335.Rick VAN WOLFSWINKEL - 19 - 72 - AM - Vitesse Arnhem Starter for a much improved (jenner, hofs) Vitesse. Has 3 goals in 712 minutes, 8 starts. 336.Alexander BUTTNER - 19 - 73 - F/W - Vitesse Arnhem Another starter for Vitesse. He has 7 starts, and is usually subbed out. 553 mins. 337.Jack TUYP - 25 - 81 - CF - Volendam A bit like this season's Amrabat. The newly promoted, and struggling, Volendam have been relying on their leader for goals. He has started every game, and scored 4. Though Volendam are likely to be relegated, I doubt Tuyp will follow. 338.Henrique LEO VELOSO - LB/LM - 21 - 73 - Willem II The young Brazilian has started every game, 789 mins from the Willem defense. 339.Rens VAN EIJDEN - RB - 20 - 71 - Willemm II He has 535 minutes, 6 starts and two subs. 340.Peter Orry LARSEN - 19 - 72 - RM - Aalesunds FK Out of 26 matches, he has played in 19, 8 as a starter.

This one has 16 starts and 4 subs, 1628 minutes played in defense. 345.Aksel Berget SKJOLSVIK - 21 - 72 - F - Molde FK Skolsevic hasn't been lighting it up, but 4 starts and 8 subs deserves a rise. 346.Harmeet SINGH - 17 - 70 - M - Valerenga IF 17 yeah old has 9 apps, 5 of them starts. 480 minutes, he is sure to play a bigger role next season. 347.Milton BENITEZ - 22 - 74 - M - Olimpia Benitez has 10 starts and 4 subs in the Paraguayan Clausura, most players are rated at 80. 348.Daniel Alonso SANCHEZ - 18 - 80 - CM - Sporting Cristal Sporting's starters are rated around 85-87. Sanchez has started 32 this season in the Clausura/Apertuna, scoring 5 goals. He is going to be very nicely rated 18 year old. 349.Robert LEWANDOWSKI - 20 - 74 - F - Lech Poznan Lewandowski has a phenomenal 7 goals, 2nd in Poland. Who knows, he could be due for a +10. 350.Gregorz PODSTAWEK - ?? - ?? - F - Polonia Bytom You'd think 5 goals in 9 games would be enough to get him added... 351.Marcin SOBCZAK - 21 - 72 - F - Ruch Chorzow Sobczak has 3 goals so far in this young season. 352.Enrique JUNIOR DIAZ - 25 - 80 - CB/LB - Wisla Krakow Since signing from Herediano (Costa Rica) this season, he has started all matches for Wisla and scored twice. He will get a nice rise, the second best buy in Poland IMO. 353.Nasser MENASSEL - 25 - 74 - AM - CS Otopeni 5 starts and one sub appearance in Romania. 354.Nicolae MUSAT - 21 - 76 - LM/LB - CS Otopeni 6 starts and one sub appearance for the same team, average rating 80. 355.Sabrin SBURLEA - 19 - 70 - CF - FC Brasov 6 sub appearances and one start this season, has scored twice. 310 mins. 356.Mihai ROMAN - 23 - 75 - RM/AM - FC Brasov 10 starts and two subs, most of the starts being full, as well as one goal. He deserves at least 80. 357.Alexandru VAGNER - 20 - 75 - RM/W - Gloria Bistrita 7 starts. 585 minutes, all starts were full exept one. 358. Dorinel POPA - 19 - 74 - M - Gloria Buzau 1 start and 5 sub appearances, got his first goal on week 5. 359.Marian CARJA - 20 - 74 - RB - Otelul Galati 4 starts and 4 subs so far. 499 minutes, most of them recent. He seems to have won the job. 360. Marius PENA - 23 - 75 - F - Otelul Galati He has 9 startsand 2 subs, there is only one match where he didnt play. Pena has 2 goals so far, expect more. 361.Razvan PLESCA - 25 - 74 - G - Politehnica Iasi Played the last 9 matches. 362.Giedrius ARLAUSKIS - 20 - 80 - G - Unirea Urziceni Started 12 matches for the league leaders, it's safe to say that the job is his. 363. Marius GAMAN - 19 - 78 - CB - Universitatea Craiova Started every single match. Get him before he rises to about 83, like any regular starter on this team. 364.Cillian SHERIDAN - 19 - 72 - F - Celtic Sheridan has 4 apps, 2 starts, totalling 213 minutes. He made the most of it, scoring 1 goal. 365.Stephen ETTIEN - 20 - 70 - CF - Hamilton Academical Has 5 subs for Aces, totalling 166 mins. 366.

Anel RASKAJ - 19 - 78 - CM/RM - Halmstads BK Raskaj has been amazing, playing 2153 minutes, which is most of the season. 23 starts. 377. Alagie SOSSEH - 22 - 71 - AM/F - Hammarby Has only started 4 matches, so should get to 75. 378. Abiola DAUDA - 20 - 72 - CF - Kalmar FF The Nigerian striker is mainly used as subsitute, adding 4 starts to his 16 sub appearances. He has 5 goals in 655 minutes. 379.Agon MEHMETI - 18 - 74 - F - Malmo FF Mehmeti still hasn't started. However, he has 19 sub apps, totalling 455 minutes, and 2 goals. 380.

THE buy from Sweden. 382.Angel DAVID ABRAHAM - 22 - 86 - CB - FC Basel Just about the most reliable defender Basel can ask for.

    Do whatever you want with these stats. I have searched hard and put a lot of research into scouting quite a few leagues, and I will update the stats every 5 games if possible, with players to watch and current lineups. Starting off with Brazil, who just played the 15 th game of the season. Here goes. I will also say that the updates might not always be right after the games are played. I have a full time job and will go to university, so a lot of my free time goes to this. I do it because I love it, not cause I have tons of time on my hands.

    44 Brazilian Bargains!!! BUY NOW

    Well I've not scouted in ages and ages so I thought I'd have a go with the upcoming Brazilian changes. Some players have probably been mentioned before, but I wouldn't know which one's as I haven't read this section in a couple of months! But I'm pretty sure that all 4 can't have been mentioned! Ive tried to make it easily readable. Let me know what you think. Flamengo TORÓ, Rafael F 84 22 Actually playing as a midfielder, not a striker. He has started 6 out of 8 times for top of the table Flamengo. 84 -> 85 MARCINHO, José Oliveira AM 86 23 Watch this guy for the rest of the season! He has started 5 times and been used as a substitute in the other 3 games. He has scored 5 goals already, no other midfielder has played more time than Marcinho. He will probably only make 87 this time round though, but keep him on your shortlist. 86 -> 87 Gremio VICTOR, Leandro G 80 25 Has played every minute of Gremio’s 8 games and has must be doing well if Gremio are in second. ***80 -> 84*** REVER, Humberto CB 80 23 Has also played every minute of Gremio’s 8 games, more than any other player in the Gremio side excluding Victor. ***80 -> 84*** FELIPE MATTIONI , Rohde RB 72 19 Has started twice and has been subbed on once. BIG RISER! ***72 -> 79*** HELDER , Silva Santos LB 74 19 STAR BUY!!!!! Has started 6 times and been a sub once. Get this guy whilst you can. ***74 -> 81*** WILLIAN MAGRAO, Henrique CM/AM 77 21 Has started 3 times. 77 -> 80 RAFAEL CARIOCA, Pereira CM 74 19 STAR BUY!!!!! Has started 6 times and been a sub once. *** 74 -> 82*** Cruzeiro GUILHERME , Milhomem F/AM 86 19 Has started all 8 games and has managed to score 6 goals. 86 -> 88 Palmeiras MARCOS, Roberto G 82 34 Has started all 8 games over an 88 rated goalkeeper. 82 -> 84/85 HENRIQUE, Adriano CB 81 21 Has started 6 games and scored a goal. 81 ->84 Vitoria NEY, Alexandre G 75 30 Has started in 2 of Vitoria’s games. 75 -> 80 ANDERSON MARTINS , Vieira CB 80 20 Has started 7 of 8 games so far. Keep a watch on this guy. 80 -> 83 MARCO AURELIO , Barbosa RB 79 30 Has started 7 games. 79 -> 82 WILLIANS SANTANA, Santos AM 70 20 Has started 5 games and scored a goal. ***70 -> 79*** DINEI, Telmario CF 79 24 Has started 6 times and scored 4 goals! 79 -> 83/84 Nautico WELLINGTON , Luis F 78 20 Has started 7 times and scored 4 goals. 78 -> 82/83 Sao Paulo No Great buys, but a possible talent in Roni (striker who is not yet on the db) Vasco De Gama EDUARDO , Wagner RB/LB 77 21 Has started 7 times and has scored a goal. ***77 -> 84*** ALEX TEIXEIRA , Santo F 73 18 Great Future Potential! Started twice and been subbed on twice scoring 2 goals. *73 -> 80* Coritiba MAURICIO, Donizeti CB 75 23 The only player to have played every minute for Coritiba. *75->80/81* HUGO , Guimarães CF 78 19 Started 6 times and appeared once as a substitute, has scored 4 goals. *78 -> 81/82* Atletico Miniero RENAN OLIVEIRA, Henrique AM/F 72 18 Started 7 times! Future talent. STAR BUY!!! ***72 -> 82/83*** EDUARDO, Ferreira F 77 21 Started 5 times and has been a sub once scoring 1 goal. *77->82* Atletico Paranaense VINICIUS , Barriviera G 80 22 Started 5 times over a 84 rated goalie .80 -> 83 PIAUI, Edson LB 80 25 Started 4 times. 80 -> 82/83 CHICO, Luís CM 72 21 Started once and came on as a sub once. 72 -> 76/77 2 Talented players need to be added – Wallyson & Choco (great names too:D ) Figueirense ANDERSON LUIZ , Ribeiro CM 79 19 Has started 4 times and been subbed on twice. 79->82 MARQUINHO, Antônio F 75 22 Has started 5 times and scored a goal. *75 -> 82* Internacional RAMON, Moraes CB 80 20 Has started 4 times and has been a sub twice. 80 -> 83 JI-PARANÁ, Felício CM 75 21 Has started 3 times. 75 -> 80 Sport Recife JUNINHO, Vitor AM 74 20 FRANCISCO ALEX , Souza AM 72 24 KÁSSIO , Rinaldo AM 72 21 Each of these 3 will probably rise by 2/3. Botafogo RENAN , dos Santos G 72 19 Has started 5 times. *** 72 -> 82*** BRUNO COSTA, Carlos CB 74 21 Has started 3 times and been a sub once. 74 -> 80 EDUARDO , Silva CB 72 19 Has started 3 times. 72-> 78/79 FABIO, José F 70 21 Started 4 times and has been subbed on 3 times. ***70 -> 81*** Goias FABINHO, Souza Almeida LB 76 24 Has started 4 times and been a sub once. 76 -> 80 FERNANDO, Gomes DM/CB 74 22 Has started 5 times and has been a sub twice. **74 -> 81** Fluminense ANDERSON, Azevedo CB 80 21 Has started 6 times. 80 -> 83/84 SANDRO, Silva de Souza CB 74 20 Has started 4 times this season. 74 -> 81/82 TARTÁ, Vinícius AM 73 19 Has started 3 times and been a sub twice. ***73 -> 81/82*** ALAN , Carvalho CF 76 18 Has started 3 times, been a sub 3 times and has scored a goal. 76 -> 81/82 LÉO, Oliveira Clemente AM 75 19 Only started once but has been subbed on 5 times. 75 -> 80 Enjoy all your buying, This has taken me more than 2 hours to do so any comments/ feedback would be appreciated.

    I have decided to change the purpose and format of this thread. After discussions with a few forumers, I have concluded that continuing the great work Seftinho left behind would be more advantageous than a thread on a single league. I will have found, researched and predicted these players myself, so those with a problem about "credit" are just going to have to get over themselves. Expect to see regular updates for the next few days... The biggest risers/money makers will be in bold.

    First 10 teams I chose to analyse from Brazil. Feel free to ask questions. The other 10 are coming sometime in the next two weeks. CR = Continued Riser BARUERI Elite 11: Rene Eder-Leandro Castan-Andre Luis-Daniel Marques-Marcio Careca Ralf Ewerton Fernandinho-Pedrao-Thiago Humberto Goalkeeping: Rene has this spot. He has played every game of every competition, and has played quite well. Deserves a rise from 78 to about 81 for now. 31 - Rene: 78 - +4 - 82 (6 starts) CR Centre Backs: A few new signings have made a dent into the lineup. Young Xandao is a TRAFFIC product who is starting to make a name for himself and Andre Luis is rated 86, ex-International. Leandro Castan and Daniel Marques are both regulars as well. 29 - Andre Luis: 86 - -2 - 84 (3 starts, 1 goal) 25 - Daniel Marques: 82 - / - 82 (4 starts, 1 goal) 23 - Joao Leonardo: 79 - / - 79 (2 starts) 22 - Leandro Castan: 78 - +3 - 81 (6 starts) 21 - Xandao: -- New -- 73 (2 starts, 1 sub) Wingbacks: The main fight here is at the right back position, where Eder and Pimentel are fighting it out. Marcio is a lock on the left. 30 - Marcio Careca: 82 - / - 82 (6 starts) 25 - Marcos Pimentel: -- New -- 74 (3 starts, 1 sub, 1 goal) 23 - Eder: 77 - +2 - 79 (3 starts, 2 subs) Defensive Midfielders: When Barueri decide to go with one defensive mid, it has been Ralf and will continue to be. Leanderson got some quality time in the Paulista, but isn't used much lately. Joao Vitor is one to watch, impressed with Marilia, is a new arrival on loan. 31 - Marcio Hahn: 79 - -2 - 77 (1 sub) 26 - Franciscatti: -- New -- 71 (1 sub) 26 - Leanderson: 77 - +2 - 79 (3 starts) 24 - Ralf: -- New -- 82 (6 starts) 21 - Joao Vitor: -- New -- 73 (3 subs) Attacking Midfielders: Again, only one AM is usually used, and this is Ewerton. He gets a lot of support from the attacking wingbacks, and has been doing a great job so far supporting the 3 striker system. 30 - Esley: -- New -- 72 (1 sub) 25 - Flavinho: -- New -- 74 (2 subs) 24 - Ewerton: -- New -- 82 (6 starts, 2 goals) 23 - Camilo: 80 - -2 - 78 (2 subs) Attackers: Pedrao is the man leading the charge, with Thiago Humberto and Fernandinho supporting. Again, Barueri are fairly straightforward, always using the same lineup. Pedrao was also one of the top scorers in the Paulista, he could finish the season around 86 if he keeps the pace. 31 - Pedrao: 82 - +1 - 83 (6 starts, 4 goals) 28 - Val Baiano: -- New -- 74 (3 subs) 23 - Thiago Humberto: -- New -- 81 (6 starts) 23 - Fernandinho: -- New -- 80 (6 starts) AVAI Elite 11: Eduardo Martini Uendel-Turatto-Emerson-Ferdinando Marcus Vinicius-Leo Gago Marquinhos-Muriqui Evando-William Keepers: Eduarado Martini has been the only keeper used so far. Depending on what he is added at, he might be a riser. 30 - Eduardo Martini: -- New -- 81 (6 starts) Centre Backs: Despite a few sending offs, the pairing has been Turatto and Emerson, throughout. They haven't lit the league alight, but have held their own. 32 - Turatto: -- New -- 81 (6 starts) 25 - Emerson: -- New -- 81 (5 starts, 2 RC) 22 - Anderson Luis: -- New -- 73 (1 start, 1 sub) Wingbacks: After a slight rise last year at Fluminense, Uendel Pereira is back, this time as a starter. He'll hit 80 this time around, should rise more later. Medina is a promising youngster, keep an eye on him. 28 - Ferdinando: -- New -- 80 (5 starts) 20 - Uendel: 75 - +5 - 80 (5 starts) CR 18 - Medina: -- New -- 72 (1 sub) Defensive Midfielders: Marcus Vinicius was a great signing from Istanbul. He holds Avai together. 28 - Pingo: 82 - -3 - 79 (1 start) 25 - Leo Gago: -- New -- 79 (4 starts) 24 - Wendell: -- New -- 72 (1 start) 23 - Marcus Vinicius: 84 - / - 84 (6 starts) 22 - Bruno: -- New -- 74 (1 start, 2 subs) Attacking Midfielders: Muriqui has been the lead man for Avai's attack. He will be a big riser this season. He roams in and out of games, but is still a main creative force. 33 - Ricardinho: 82 - -2 - 80 (2 subs, 1 goal) 28 - Caio: 80 - / - 80 (3 starts, 1 sub) 27 - Marquinhos: 80 - / - 80 (3 starts, 1 goal) 27 - Odair: -- New -- 74 ( 1 start, 1 sub) 22 - Muriqui: 74 - +7 - 81 (6 starts, 2 goals) CR Attackers: Evando, Lima and William have been disappointing this season. Muriqui is leading the scoring, it is no coincidence. All the strikers have been wasteful, they need to get their act together. 31 - Evando: -- New -- 80 (5 starts, 1 goal) 25 - Lima: 81 - -1 - 80 (1 start, 4 subs, 1 goal) 25 - William: 80 - / - 80 (3 starts, 1 sub) 25 - Luiz Ricardo: -- New -- 76 (2 starts, 3 subs) 21 - Rafael Costa: -- New -- 71 ( 1 sub) BOTAFOGO Elite 11: --------------Renan------------------- ------Juninho-Emerson-Eduardo--------- ------Leandro Guerreiro-Fahel--------- Alessandro--------------------Thiaguinho ------------Lucio Flavio-------------- -------V. Simoes-----Tony------------- Keepers: This position is actually still up for grabs. Castillo has been busy on duty for Uruguay, and I think Renan still has the upper hand. Renan has a lot of potentail, and a lot of Athleticism. Still a bit raw, though, a young Kameni. 31 - Castillo: 86 - -1 - 85 (2 starts) 20 - Renan: 84 - +1 - 85 (4 starts) Centre Backs: The young Wellington got quite a bit of action in the Carioca, but Eduardo has taken his spot here. It's nice to see Juninho bounce back, he was 87 two seasons ago before a flawed transfer to Sao Paulo. He is back to full form. 27 - Emerson: 85 - +1 - 86 (3 starts) 26 - Teco: 80 - -2 - 78 (1 start) 26 - Juninho: 85 - +1 - 86 (5 starts) 21 - Wellington: 72 - +3 - 75 (1 start, 1 sub) Wingbacks: Eduardo is mainly a left wingback, but he can play DM or CB as well and has been one of Botafogo's best. He provides lots of great runs, a lot like Thiaguinho. Gabriel is quite highly rated as well, but I havn't seen him yet. 31 - Alessandro: 85 - +1 - 86 (5 starts) 24 - Thiaguinho: 85 - +1 - 86 (3 starts, 2 subs) 20 - Gabriel: -- New -- 73 (1 start, 2 subs) 20 - Eduardo: 77 - +5 - 82 (6 starts) CR Defensive Midfielders: Fahel has been absolutly stellar in the Carioca and Brasileiro. He usually ventures forward while Leandro Guerreiro stays back as an extra defender. 29 - Leandro Guerreiro: 87 - / - 87 (6 starts) 29 - Batista: 82 - -1 - 81 (1 start, 1 goal) 27 - Fahel: 84 - +2 - 86 (6 starts, 1 goal) 26 - Tulio Souza: 80 - +3 - 83 (4 starts) 23 - Leo Silva: 80 - +1 - 81 (1 start, 3 subs) Attacking Midfielders: Rodrigo Dantas' stats may look impressive, but he hasn't played since Lucio Flavio's arrival. Still a top prospect though. It seems as if Lucio Flavio is back in form after a bad spell at Santos. 30 - Lucio Flavio: 88 - -1 - 87 (3 starts) 24 - Lucas Silva: 80 - / - 80 (1 start) 23 - Renato: 86 - -2 - 84 (1 sub) 19 - Rodrigo Dantas: -- New -- 74 (2 starts, 1 sub) Attackers: Victor Simoes is always the main threat here. Posesses a great shot, just going through a dry spell at the moment. Expect him to finish with about 8-10 goals. Tony hasn't impressed me much, I like Jean and Laio much more. Jean is creative, will try anything to get it on goal. Laio is more of a wide striker, he'll cross it in, using flair and speed. Exepct to see him subbing on a lot this year, and eventually making it big. An injured Reinaldo is expected to make an impact when he comes back. 28 - Victor Simoes: 81 - +3 - 84 (6 starts, 1 goal) 25 - Diego: 80 - -2 - 78 (1 sub) 23 - Tony: -- New -- 77 (3 starts, 2 subs, 1 goal) 21 - Jean Coral: 75 - +2 - 77 (1 start, 2 subs) 20 - Laio: -- New -- 74 (1 start, 2 subs, 1 goal) 19 - Junior: -- New -- 70 (1 sub) SANTOS Elite 11: ------------------Fabio Costa----------------------- Triguinho-------Fabao-----Fabiano Eller---------Leo -------------Roberto Brum--Rodrigo Souto------------ Molina--------Paulo Henrique-----------------Madson ----------------Kleber Pereira---------------------- Goalkeepers: Fabio Costa (ex-90) is the man in goal this season. Has a tendency to allow a weak goal, but has still done a good job. Wayyy too exitable though. 31 - Fabio Costa: 88 - / - 88 (5 starts) 26 - Douglas: 83 - / - 83 (1 start) Centre Backs: Domingos has fallen out of favour. He's pretty much just a hired goon now. Fabao has been playing very well, taking some free kicks as well with that powerful foot of his. 33 - Fabao: 86 - +1 - 87 (6 starts, 1 goal) 31 - Fabiano Eller: 88 - / - 88 (5 starts) 26 - Paulo Henrique Rodrigues - 83 - -2 - 81 (1 sub) 23 - Domingos: 87 - -2 - 85 (1 start) Wingbacks: Leo is going down based on performance. Hasn't convinced me at all, I liked Triguinho a lot better before he got hurt down the left. Down the right, we have two risers. Luizinho and Para play different styles, Luizinho likes to attack more. In the match Luizinho missed, we clearly saw stale attacking against Botafogo. Both will be interesting this season. 33 - Leo: 88 - -1 - 87 (4 starts, 1 sub) 29 - Triguinho: 84 - / - 84 (1 start) 26 - Luizinho: 80 - +3 - 83 (5 starts) CR 23 - Para: 76 - +4 - 80 (2 starts, 4 subs) CR Defensive Midfielders: Both Brum and Souto have been very solid, but I think I like Germano just as much. He was unfortunate to get injured, as he usually came on to solidify the defending at the end of the games. Can't go wrong with any of these 3. 30 - Roberto Brum: 85 - +2 - 87 (6 starts) 28 - Germano: 80 - +2 - 82 (1 start, 2 subs) 25 - Rodrigo Souto: 88 - / - 88 (5 starts, 2 goals) Attacking Midfielders: Madson has been the best player for Santos so far. Small, quick and tough, he really should be rated 87. 86 is more likely though, as I'm not fully confident in SM. If he keeps going, expect 88 by the end of the season. Molina has been solid, usually subbing out for Neymar, but the big surprise has been Paulo Henrique, who has started every game. Looked shaky early on, but now seems comfortable in that role. He's a starter, undisputed. 29 - Molina: 87 - / - 87 (4 starts, 1 sub, 2 goals) 23 - Madson: 84 - +2 - 86 (6 starts, 3 goals) CR 21 - Robson: 76 - +1 - 77 (1 sub) 19 - Paulo Henrique Lima: 71 - +10 - 81 (6 starts, 2 goals) CR Attackers: Neymar is the most interesting one here. Always sparks something, usually leads to great attacking play. His performances have been great, he's a future superstar. Kleber Pereira has been good, he works really well alone, with Madson, PH and Molina attacking from the midfield. He has a slight chance at 90. 33 - Kleber Pereira: 89 - / - 89 (6 starts, 4 goals) 32 - Roni: 87 - -2 - 85 (2 subs) 20 - Maikon Leite: 82 - -1 - 81 (2 subs) 18 - Andre: -- New -- 70 (1 sub) 17 - Neymar: 76 - +4 - 80 (2 starts, 4 subs) CR ATLETICO MINEIRO Elite 11: ------------------Aranha------------------- -------Welton Felipe---Leandro Almeida----- Thiago Feltri-----Carlos Alberto-----Junior --Renan-------Marcio Araujo----Jonilson---- --------Eder Luis-------Diego Tardelli----- Keepers: It might seem like a competition, but it is not. Since signing from Ponte Preta, where he has impressed me when I've seen him, Aranha has been brilliant, quite possibly the best keeper in Brazil. He has played 3 full matches, allowing 0 goals, while Juninho allowed 5 in 3 matches. Expect Aranha to carry the load. 28 - Aranha: 78 - +5 - 83 (3 starts) CR 27 - Juninho: 84 - / - 84 (3 starts) Centre Backs: Welton Felipe and Leandro Almeida have been two very solid centre backs this season. When I've watched, they've shown solid tackling and excellent movement for such tall players. Werley is a backup when needed, but still a very good buy, as Leandro Almeida has been heavily linked with bigger clubs. 23 - Welton Felipe: 80 - +4 - 84 (6 starts) 22 - Leandro Almeida: 86 - / - 86 (4 starts) 20 - Werley: 75 - +4 - 79 (3 starts) Wingbacks: Junior looked awful when I was watching him, but has got raving reviews lately. Would be a great buy for a smaller team. Atlético are desperatly waiting the return of Sheslon from his long-term injury. 36 - Junior: 84 - +2 - 86 (6 starts, 2 goals) 24 - Thiago Feltri: 85 - +1 - 86 (5 starts, 1 sub, 1 goal) 20 - Marcos Rocha: -- New -- 73 (2 subs) Defensive Midfielders: Marcio Araujo has been the best of the bunch, carrying the slack from the absence of anything creative in the midfield. The others stay back, allowing Junior and Thiago Feltri to attack. The system has worked so far, though, and they deserve to rise a bit. 31 - Carlos Alberto: 85 - +1 - 86 (5 starts, 1 sub, 1 goal) 30 - Jonilson: 84 - +1 - 85 (5 starts) 25 - Marcio Araujo: 84 - +2 - 86 (6 starts, 2 goals) 24 - Renan: 85 - +1 - 86 (6 starts) Attacking Midfielders: Evandro has disappointed since arriving from Palmeiras, and Tchô has never lived up to the hype. Chiquinho and Renan Oliveira are both injured, their return will be welcome. 22 - Tchô: 82 - -2 - 80 (3 subs) 22 - Evandro: 84 - -2 - 82 (2 subs) Attackers: Eder Luis and Diego Tardelli form one of the best domestic pairings in Brazil. They were exellent in the Mineiro and superb so far, they both deserve at least a +1 to 87 for now. Kleber is a massive talent, watch out for him when he's added. Just turned 19. Julio Cesar has failed to make an impact, be it at Paranaense or here. 29 - Julio Cesar: 82 - / - 82 (2 subs, 1 sub for APR) 27 - Alessandro: 85 - -1 - 84 (5 subs, 1 goal) 24 - Eder Luis: 86 - +1 - 87 (6 starts, 4 goals) 24 - Diego Tardelli: 86 - +1 - 87 (6 starts, 3 goals) 19 - Kleber: -- New -- 71 (1 sub) NAUTICO Elite 11: -------------------Eduardo--------------------- --------Asprilla-----Vagner----Gladstone------- Eduardo Ere--------------------Anderson Santana ---------------Derley----Johnny---------------- --------Carlinhos Bala------Gilmar------------- Goalkeepers: Eduardo has been the man throughout the Pernambucano, Copa and for Nautico. This season AND last season. He's due for a nice increase. 31 - Eduardo: 81 - +3 - 84 (6 starts) Centre Backs: Nautico use three centre backs, Asprilla, Vagner and Gladstone. All are decent, but not spectacular. They are not work keeping as long term investments. 28 - Asprilla: 85 - / - 85 (5 starts, 1 goal) 26 - Vagner: 84 - +1 - 85 (6 starts) 24 - Gladstone: 85 - / - 85 (5 starts, 1 goal) 24 - Galiardo: -- New -- 73 (1 start, 1 sub) 23 - Negretti: 82 - / - 82 (1 start, 2 subs) 19 - Luiz Alberto: -- New -- 72 (1 sub) Wingbacks: Anderson Santana has taken his spot back since being injured for 5 months with a broken collarbone. Eduardo Ere starts as a right-DM, pretty much right back, as Sidny has been inadequate for both Recife clubs this season. Wellington was only starting in lieu of A.S. 27 - Sidny: 86 - -1 - 85 (2 starts) 23 - Anderson Santana: 75 - +4 - 79 (3 starts) CR 19 - Wellington: -- New -- 75 (2 starts, 1 sub) Defensive Midfielders: Eduardo Ere should've gotten a huge rise last season, he'll get a smaller one now. Derley and Johnny work well together, the former attacking well and the latter defending. Derley has developped a flair for the reds though, accumulating 2 in 5 games. 24 - Junior Carioca: 77 - +1 - 78 (2 starts, 1 sub) 23 - Johnny: 76 - +5 - 81 (6 starts) CR 22 - Derley: 80 - +3 - 83 (5 starts, 1 goal) 21 - Eduardo Ere: 75 - +4 - 79 (3 starts) Attacking Midfielders: Nautico don't really use attacking mids, other then Dinda, who is (with Lessa) the top substitute. Dinda is a real promise who will be brought up at Nautico, fast and has a ton of flair. 28 - Juliano: -- New -- 72 (1 sub) 24 - Ailton: -- New -- 74 (2 starts) 20 - Dinda: 75 - +3 - 78 (2 starts, 4 subs) CR Attackers: Gilmar and Carlinhos Bala have been the starting pair, with Lessa usually making a spark with serious second half minutes. Bala is very much in the same style as Lessa, runners who put effort into everything. Gilmar is more of a finisher. They work quite well together, especially when Dinda is on. 37 - Kuki: 82 - / - 82 (1 start, 1 sub) 29 - Carlinhos Bala: 86 - / - 86 (6 starts, 2 goals) 28 - Adriano Magrao: 85 - -2 - 83 (1 sub) 25 - Gilmar: 80 - +3 - 83 (6 starts, 2 goals) 19 - Anderson Lessa: 72 - +7 - 79 (1 start, 4 subs, 2 goals) CR CORITIBA Elite 11: ------------------Vanderlei--------------------- -------------Felipe-----Pereira----------------- Marcio Gabriel----Rodrigo Mancha---------Vicente -Pedro Ken--Marcelinho Paraiba-Carlinhos Paraiba -------------Ariel----Marcos Aurelio------------ Keepers: Despite the poor performances of Coritiba, Vanderlei has been solid throughout 2009. He's one of the first keepers I'd rush to buy from Brazil. 29 - Edson Bastos: 82 - -1 - 81 (1 start) 25 - Vanderlei: 83 - +2 - 85 (5 starts) Centre-Backs: Cleiton is back from injury, expect him to get quite a few more starts. He had 18 starts in the Pernambucano, more then Felipe and Pereira. He's one for the small teams, long term. Felipe should retain his spot, not 100% sure about Pereira. Demerson was more of an emergency replacement. 29 - Pereira: 86 - / - 86 (5 starts) 27 - Cleiton: 76 - +2 - 78 (2 starts) CR 23 - Demerson: -- New -- 72 (1 start) 22 - Felipe: 82 - +2 - 84 (6 starts) Wingbacks: These two spots are completly up for grabs. Vicente and Marcio Gabriel seemed to have the spots nailed down, but Guaru and, especially Rodrigo Heffner, were spectacular in the 5-0 drubbing of Flamengo. Anything is possible now, so every one of them could be a star buy. 27 - Guaru: 78 - / - 78 (1 start, 1 sub) 26 - Vicente: 80 - +1 - 81 (3 starts) 26 - Marcio Gabriel: 82 - +1 - 83 (4 starts) 26 - Rodrigo Heffner: 80 - +1 - 81 (2 starts) Defensive Midfielders: This is, seemingly, where everything has gone wrong this season. The holding mids simply havn't been able to control the midfield or to stop opposing attackers. I wouldn't recommend any of these. 27 - Jailton: 86 - -1 - 85 (2 starts, 1 sub) 25 - Leandro Donizete: 81 - +2 - 83 (4 starts, 1 sub) 23 - Rodrigo Mancha: 84 - / - 84 (3 starts) 21 - Dirceu: -- New -- 73 (1 start, 1 sub) Attacking Midfielders: Renatinho has been the most spectacular, starring in the 5-0 drubbing and scoring a goal in his other start. He will be getting more action. Carlinhos has been so-so, showing flashes of his potential, but never controlling the ball that long. Pedro Ken is decent, but probably never going to develop into that much of a player. He strikes me as the type that will make a living in Japan, to be honest. 26 - Carlinhos Paraiba: 84 - +1 - 85 (4 starts) 25 - Ramon: 84 - -2 - 82 (2 subs) 22 - Pedro Ken: 82 - +2 - 84 (5 starts) 20 - Renatinho: 76 - +3 - 79 (2 starts, 1 sub, 1 goal) CR Attackers: Marcelinho has been absolutly stellar behind Marcos Aurelio and Ariel, and Bruno has shown a ton of promise. This attack has a ton of potential, but I can see Ariel being replaced by Bruno quite soon. 33 - Marcelinho Paraiba: 90 - / - 90 (4 starts, 1 sub, 4 goals) 25 - Marcos Aurelio: 86 - / - 86 (5 starts, 1 goal) 24 - Bruno Batata: -- New -- 77 (1 start, 3 subs, 2 goals) 23 - Hugo: 82 - / - 82 (2 starts, 1 goal) 23 - Thiago Silvy: -- New -- 71 (1 sub) 21 - Ariel: 82 - +1 - 83 (3 starts, 2 subs) 21 - Leozinho: -- New -- 72 (2 subs, 1 goal) FLAMENGO Elite 11 -----------------------Bruno------------------------ ----------------Welinton---Ronaldo Angelim---------- ----------Airton------Willians----Toro-------------- Leo Moura----Kleberson----Ibson-----------------Juan ---------------------Adriano------------------------ Goalkeepers: Bruno has looked either good or bad. Most of the time he has been good though. I would've called a rise to 89 before the Coritiba match, but 88 seems fine now. 24 - Bruno: 88 - / - 88 (6 starts) Centre Backs: Definatly the weak spot since the retirement of Fabio Luciano. Welinton has been slightly sub-par, Airton, Willians and Toro have all played a bit of centre-back. 33 - Ronaldo Angelim: 87 - +1 - 88 (6 starts) 20 - Welinton: 75 - +4 - 79 (3 starts, 1 sub) CR Wingbacks: All three have been good. Everton Silva has tremendous pace and might just be the best buy on this Flamengo squad. Definatly will get more action. Leo Moura and Juan are both almost uniquely attack minded, which gives the DM's that much more to do. 30 - Leonardo Moura: 89 - / - 89 (4 starts) 27 - Juan: 89 - / - 89 (5 starts) 20 - Everton Silva: 74 - +5 - 79 (2 starts, 2 subs) CR Defensive Midfielders: This has been the strong point for Fla. Willians has been phenomenal, Fla's most valuable player. Was suspended for one game, and everything fell apart. Toro has done very well filling in, and Airton is about the most defensive minded DM you'll find, other then perhaps Nautico's Johnny. 23 - Willians: 80 - +4 - 84 (5 starts) CR 22 - Toro: 86 - / - 86 (5 starts) 19 - Airton: 83 - +2 - 85 (6 starts) CR Attacking Midfielders: Don't be fooled by stats. Kleberson has been away on NT duty. Ibson has been the best player other then Willians for Flamengo. Both have been good and are the starters. It's time to give up on Fierro, IMO. Everton will probably go back to the bench when Kleberson gets back. Alex Cruz is nothing special, nor is Ze Roberto. Erick Flores will need a loan with all the other attacking minded players here. 30 - Kleberson: 87 - +1 - 88 (4 starts) 28 - Zé Roberto: 87 - -2 - 85 (1 sub) 26 - Fierro: 86 - -2 - 84 (2 subs) 25 - Ibson: 88 - +1 - 89 (6 starts) 24 - Alex Cruz: -- New -- 70 (1 sub) 20 - Everton: 82 - +2 - 84 (4 starts, 2 subs) 20 - Erick Flores: 75 - +2 - 77 (3 subs) Attackers: Adriano is the clear starter here. The rest will all likely take turns subbing once Fla have their full lineup. They have too many good attackers. Emerson looked good against Sport, but not since or before. Josiel isn't playing enough to be as good as he can, Maxi isn't doing much and Aleilson looked lively in his lone appearance. 30 - Emerson: 79 - +2 - 81 (3 starts, 2 goals) 28 - Josiel: 88 - -1 - 87 (3 starts, 2 subs) 27 - Adriano: 91 - -2 - 89 (3 starts, 1 goal) 24 - Maxi: 85 - -2 - 83 (1 sub) 23 - Aleilson: -- New -- 71 (1 sub) FLUMINENSE Elite 11: --------------------Fernando Henrique---------------------- Mariano------Luiz Alberto-----Edcarlos-----------Joao Paulo ------------------Diogo----Wellington Monteiro------------- Marquinho----------------Conca-----------------Thiago Neves --------------------------Fred----------------------------- Goalkeepers: Fernando Henrique has been good, he'll take that spot back after his injury. 30 - Ricardo Berna: 80 - +2 - 82 (3 starts) 25 - Fernando Henrique: 87 - / - 87 (3 starts) Centre Backs: Fairly obvious here. Captain Luiz Alberto and Edcarlos are solid starters, that won't change anytime soon. 31 - Luiz Alberto: 87 - / - 87 (6 starts) 24 - Edcarlos: 86 - +1 - 87 (6 starts) 22 - Cassio: -- New -- 75 (2 starts, 1 sub) Wingbacks: Mariano is clear starter on the right. Diogo has replaced him for his injury, but he'll be back. On the left, it's all Joao Paulo. Was injured for 2 games, but he's easily the starter, quite defensive for a wing-back. Dieguinho is a weak link, I'm not a big fan of his at all. 22 - Mariano: 84 - / - 84 (2 starts, 1 goal) 21 - Eduardo Ratinho: 83 - -1 - 82 (1 start, 1 sub) 19 - Dieguinho: -- New -- 73 (2 starts) 18 - Joao Paulo: 76 - +5 - 81 (4 starts) CR Defensive Midfielders: Expect new signing Fabio Santos to fight for a spot. In the mean time, Diguinho will also fight, he's back from injury. Mauricio needs more playing time, he has a ton of potential. 32 - Fabinho: 86 - -1 - 85 (3 subs) 30 - Wellington Monteiro: 87 - / - 87 (6 starts) 26 - Diguinho: 86 - -1 - 85 (1 sub) 22 - Diogo: 85 - / - 85 (3 starts) 20 - Mauricio: 85 - / - 85 (1 start, 2 subs, 1 goal) Attacking Midfielders: Thiago Neves has been comparativly poor this season. He hasn't done anything, to be fully honest. Tarta is still a decent prospect, but Carlos Eduardo is the one to look out for here. I havn't watched him yet, but have heard good things. Marquinho and Conca have both been very solid. 26 - Conca: 88 - +1 - 89 (5 starts) 24 - Thiago Neves: 90 - -1 - 89 (5 starts) 22 - Marquinho: 83 - +2 - 85 (6 starts) 20 - Tarta: 82 - -1 - 82 (2 subs) 19 - Carlos Eduardo: -- New -- 76 (3 starts) Attackers: Fred is the go to guy, and the only go-to guy. Maicon was played more early on, when the A team was being rested for Copa. Now, Carlos Eduardo is preffered. Still a good prospect, but I don't like him. L. Amaral is done. 31 - Leandro Amaral: 88 - -2 - 86 (1 sub) 25 - Fred: 91 - -1 - 90 (5 starts, 2 goals) 22 - Everton Santos: 83 - / - 83 (2 subs) 19 - Maicon: 77 - +3 - 80 (3 starts, 2 subs) 19 - Alan: 76 - +2 - 78 (1 start, 2 subs) GRÊMIO Elite 11: -------------------------Victor-------------------------- -------------Leo------Rafael Marques-----Rever----------- Ruy------------------Adilson-----------------Fabio Santos -----------Souza------------------Tcheco----------------- --------------Jonas-------Maxi Lopez--------------------- Goalkeepers: Victor also has started all Libertadores matches, is probably the best keeper in Brazil at the moment. Missed 2 games for International duty. 25 - Victor: 88 - +1 - 89 (4 starts) 22 - Marcelo Grohe: 83 - / - 83 (2 starts) Centre Backs: The trio (Rafa,Rever,Leo) has been rock solid. Gaucho, Brasileiro or Libertadores, they have been undisputed and are amongst the top defenders in Brazil right now. 25 - Rafael Marques: 85 - +2 - 87 (6 starts) CR 24 - Rever: 87 - +1 - 88 (5 starts, 1 goal) 22 - Thiego: 83 - / - 83 (1 start, 1 sub) 21 - Leo: 88 - / - 88 (6 starts) Wingbacks: Ruy and Fabio Santos have been sensational attacking wingbacks, both deserve rises in their first Grêmio seasons. 31 - Jadilson: 87 - -1 - 86 (2 subs) 30 - Ruy: 87 - +1 - 88 (5 starts) 29 - Joilson: 88 - -2 - 86 (2 subs) 23 - Fabio Santos: 82 - +3 - 85 (6 starts, 1 goal) CR 20 - Helder: 85 - -2 - 83 (1 sub) Defensive Mids: Grêmio cannot wait for Willian Magrao to come back. They are much better with him then with Adilson, who has struggled. Will still get a nice rise though. 33 - Tulio: 87 - / - 87 (3 starts, 1 sub) 22 - Adilson: 80 - +4 - 84 (5 starts) Attacking Mids: Souza has been the top man here, in all competitions. He needs to get his 89 back eventually, starting off with 88 though. Douglas Costa is a top prospect, who hasn't shown much yet this season. 33 - Tcheco: 88 - / - 88 (5 starts) 30 - Souza: 87 - +1 - 88 (6 starts, 2 goals) 18 - Douglas Costa: 78 - +2 - 80 (5 subs) Attackers: Jonas has been the better of the strikers, unfortunate to get a slight injury. More was expected from Alex Mineiro, he has been disappointing. 34 - Alex Mineiro: 88 - -1 - 87 (3 starts, 1 sub 25 - Maxi Lopez: 86 - +1 - 87 (6 starts, 1 goal) 25 - Jonas: 85 - +1 - 86 (3 starts, 1 sub) 25 - Herrera: 85 - / - 85 (4 subs, 1 goal)

    Well, I've been hassled into updating the original post for the three big countries which are to come. The current thread has some 40 pages to it though, and has become more a debate thread than a predictions thread. So here are England, Spain, and Italy (In a few hours), and all risers are +3 and above. There a a couple of borderline +2/+3's that I have given the benefit of the doubt to, like Adrian Colunga, but I hope your not going to complain at 84>86 anyway (: I may add an extra couple of countries, if there are any others worth doing? Feel free to comment, and criticise, and make yourself some more millions!

    Risers from every side in Brazil.

    Starting with 3 sides. I'd like to say that these changes are the most interesting of the season every year, as they happen at the beginning of the season in brazil, then not again until the end. So expect big risers. This is after 27 games. Total list so far : +11 SANDRO SILVA, Laurindo, DM, 24/73, Palmeiras, 73 to 84 +9 TAISON, Barcellos, AM, 20/75, Inter, 75 to 84 FELIPE, Trevizan, CB, 21/71. Coritiba, 71 to 80 +8 WILLIANS SANTANA, Santos, AM, 20/76, Vitoria, 76 to 84 JUMAR, Jose da Costa, DM, 22/73, Palmeiras, 73 to 81 GUARU, Alexandre, LB, 26/72, Coritiba, 72 to 80 FABINHO CAPIXABA, Antonio, RB, 24/72, Palmerias, 72 to 80 +6 RAFAEL CARIOCA, Pereira, CM/DM, 19/80, Gremio, 80 to 86 JECI, Jose Borges, CB, 28/80, Palmeiras, 80 to 86 RODRIGO MANCHA, Santos, DM, 22/78, Coritiba, 78 to 84 DANNY MORAIS, Bittencourt, CB, 23/74, Inter, 74 to 80 MAURICIO, dos Santos, CB, 20/73, Palmeiras, 73 to 79 +5 MARQUINHOS, Goncalves, AM/F, 18/80, Vitoria, 80 to 85 FERNANDO, Gomes, DM/CM, 22/80, Goias, 80 to 85 TRIGUINHO, Luciano, LB/LM, 29/80, Botafogo, 80 to 85 WILLIAN MAGRAO, Henrique, CM/DM, 21/80, Gremio, 80 to 85 VANDERLEI, Farias, G, 24/75, Coritiba, 75 to 80 FABIO, Jose, F, 21/75, Botafogo (Loan from Villa Rio) 75 to 80 FELIPE MATTIONI, Rohde, RB, 19/72, Gremio, 72 to 77 WALLACE, Reis da Silva, CB, 20/72, Vitoria, 72 to 77 +4 REVER, Humberto, CB, 23/83, Gremio, 83 to 87 RENAN, G, 19/78, Botafogo, 78 to 82 LEANDRO DONIZETE, Goncalves, DM, 26/77, Coritiba, 77 to 81 EDSON, Jose da Silva, CB, 22/75 Botafogo (Loan from Corinthians Alagoano) 75 to 79 BRUNO, Ferraz, AM, 24/75, Cruzeiro, 75 to 79 +3 VICTOR, Leandro, G, 25/85, Gremio, 85 to 88 ZE LUIS, Santos, DM/CM, 29/85, Sao Paulo, 85 to 88 MARCOS, Roberto, G, 35/85, Palmeiras, 85 to 88 KEIRRISON, Carneiro, F, 19/83, Coritiba, 83 to 86 JULIO CESAR, Coelho, LB/LM, 26/83, Goias, 83 to 86 ZE CARLOS, Garcia, LB/DM, 28/83, Botafogo, 83 to 86 MAURICIO, Donizeti, CB, 23/82, Coritiba, 82 to 85 AIRTON, Ribeiro Santos, DM, 18/78, Flamengo, 78 to 81 EDUARDO, Neto, CB, 19/74, Botafogo (Loan from Villa Rio), 74 to 77 THIAGO SALES, Guimaraes, CB, 21/74, Flamengo, 74 to 77 +2 GUILHERME, Milhomem, F/AM, 19/87, Cruzeiro, 87 to 89 FABIO LUCIANO, CB, 33/87, Flamengo, 87 to 89 NILMAR, Honorato, F/AM, 24/87, Inter,87 to 89 RONALDO ANGELIM, Simoes, CB, 32/87, Flamengo, 87 to 89 MARQUINHOS PARANA, RB/RM, 31/86, Cruzeiro, 86 to 88 VITOR, Cicero, RB/RM, 26/86, Goias, 86 to 88 JAILTON, Cruz Alves, CM/RM, 29/86, Flamengo (Loan from Ipatinga) 86 to 88 ANDRE LUIS, Garcia, CB, 29/85, Botafogo, 85 to 87 CLEMER, Melo, G, 39/85, Inter, 85 to 87 MARCEL, Augusto, F, 26/85, Gremio (Loan from Benfica), 85 to 87 ANDERSON MARTINS, Viera, CB, 21/84, Vitoria, 84 to 86 VANDERSON, Carlos, CM/DM, 28/83, Vitoria, 83 to 85 RAMON MENEZES, Hubner, AM, 36/83, Vitoria, 83 to 85 +1 BRUNO, Fernandes G, 23/88, Flamengo, 88 to 89 JUAN, Maldonado LB/LM, 26/88, Flamengo, 88 to 89 HUGO, Henrique, AM/LM, 27/88, Sao Paulo, 88 to 89 ALEX MINEIRO, Pereira, F, 33/88, Palmerias, 88 to 89 IBSON, Barreto, CM/DM, 24/88, Flamengo (Loan from Porto), 88 to 89 JOILSON, Rodrigues, RM/RB, 29/ 87, Sao Paulo, 87 to 88 RENATO SILVA, Assis, CB, 25/87, Botafogo, 87 to 88 IARLEY, Pedro, AM/F, 34/87, Goias, 87 to 88 INDIO, Marco Antonio, CB, 33/87, Inter, 87 to 88 PEREIRA, Fabio, CB, 29/86, Gremio, 86 to 87 ELDER GRANJA, da Silva, RB/RM, 26/85, Palmeiras, 85 to 86 ERNANDO, Rodrigues, CB, 20/85, Goias, 85 to 86 FLAMENGO 1. BRUNO, Fernandes G, 23/88, One of the best keepers in Brazil. Has played 26 of the matches, and is known for his brilliant performances. Was linked to Barcelona last season, should move to Europe someday. Rise to 89. 2. FABIO LUCIANO, CB, 33/87 (Cap) The Captain deserves a rating increase. In his second season after joining from Cologne, he’s got 24 Serie A matches, with 1 goal. Rise to 89. 3. RONALDO ANGELIM, Simoes, CB, 32/87 Another defender who has been key for a few years now, Angelim has scored once in 25 matches this season. Deserves a rise to 89, with the others. 4. JUAN, Maldonado LB/LM, 26/88 You may remember this name from his days in the Arsenal youth squad. He’s been back in Brazil since 2004, and is making a name for himself. Played in two WC Qualifiers for Brazil this summer/fall and has 3 goals in 25 Flamengo matches. If I were a manager in Europe, I’d take a shot on him for sure. Rise to 89. 5. IBSON, Barreto, CM/DM, 24/88 (Loan from Porto) Since joining on loan, he has been the anchor of the Flamengo midfield. Has also chipped in with 5 goals, this from 23 appearances, all starts. Should get the small rise to 89. 13. JAILTON, Cruz Alves, CM/RM, 29/86 (Loan from Ipatinga) In the second year of his 3 year loan deal, he’s playing quite a bit and playing well. 23 starts, with one goal, definitely a key member of the midfield. Rise to 88 17. AIRTON, Ribeiro Santos, DM, 18/78 This kid should see his playing time increase in the next few years, he has started 4 and subbed 4 this year, and been quite solid. One to watch for the next few years. Rise to 81. 25. THIAGO SALES, Guimaraes, CB, 21/74 The young defender has only played once in Serie A, but in the regional tournaments scored 4 in 6 games. Worth investing in. Rise to 77. 36. ERICK FLORES, Bonfim, AM, 19/?? (Recently promoted) 19 year old would be worth investing in if only he were on the database. Considered one of the most talented young players for Flamengo, he has featured in 7 matches so far. I’d give him a 79. 41. VANDINHO, Vanderson, F, 22/?? (Joined in August) This player exites me. Played second division most of this and last season, scoring 27 goals in 34 games. Just joined Flamengo recently and has played 5 games, with 2 goals and an assist. Highly recommended. Should be 82. GREMIO 1. VICTOR, Leandro, G, 25/85 Was injured most of last season, which gave to the rise of Marcelo Grohe, but has taken back his starters role, playing every minute this season for Gremio. Rise to 88. 4. PEREIRA, Fabio, CB, 29/86 Has finally found his niche, after two mediocre seasons, he’s been playing much more, and much better. 22 starts warrant his rise to 87. 5. REVER, Humberto, CB, 23/83 The top defender for Gremio, starting every match but one so far. His rise has been meteorical, there are threads about him out there to explain why. Rise to 87/88 8. RAFAEL CARIOCA, Pereira, CM/DM, 19/80 Another who has been mentioned a lot, he has 23 starts and a sub appearance, one of Gremio’s most played players, he should get a nice rise to 86. 9. MARCEL, Augusto, F, 26/85 (Loan from Benfica) 5 goals in 17 starts for this striker, who will return to Benfica when his loan spell ends. Most played striker on a top Brazilian side, rise to 87 for now. 11. WILLIAN MAGRAO, Henrique, CM/DM, 21/80 Yet another youth who is getting his chance for Gremio. 17 matches and 3 goals for this central midfielder who is connecting well with Carioca. Rise to 85. 15. FELIPE MATTIONI, Rohde, RB, 19/72 Backup right back, and Paulo Sergio is going back after the loan period, so he should take over. Which means buy him now. He has 3 starts and 2 sub appearances, which should be good enough for a small rise to 77 for now. PALMEIRAS 2. ELDER GRANJA, da Silva, RB/RM, 26/85 After a few seasons at Internacional, Elder Granja has come out of his shell. 17 of 27 full starts, he should get a small rise to 86, maybe 87. 9. ALEX MINEIRO, Pereira, F, 33/88 Has always been a scorer, but never to this extent. Top scorer in the league, 15 goals in 23 matches. Rise to 89. 12. MARCOS, Roberto, G, 35/85 Amazing story of loyalty. His next match will be his 400th for Palmeiras. You may remember him from his role in the 2002 world cup. Anyhow, he’s played every match this season and deserves another rise. Up to 88. 16. JECI, Jose Borges, CB, 28/80 2 goals in 15 matches since Henrique’s departure to Germany. Has been a big part of Palmeiras’ rise. Up to 86. 17. MAURICIO, dos Santos, CB, 20/73 Slowly being groomed into a player. In fact, he scored his first goal. He has 6 apps, only one of those being a substitute. Should climb to about 79 for now. 20. SANDRO SILVA, Laurindo, DM, 24/73 Can you say emergence? I’m actually not sure if grammatically, you can. But this guy has emerged into a starter for the leading side in Brazil. 13 starts, 2 subs, 2 goals. I think when a player is rated 73 with those kind of stats, it’s all you need to know. Rise to 84. That’s right, +11. 21. FABINHO CAPIXABA, Antonio, RB, 24/72 Not as much as #20, but he has 7 starts and 2 sub appearances at Right back. Good enough for perhaps a 79 / 80? 29. JUMAR, Jose da Costa, DM, 22/73 Again, same story. These guys are getting their chances. He has 9 starts to add to his 1 sub appearance. Rise to 81.

    Néstor VIDRIO *******MUST BUY***** Age 18 years Defender (D) Foot: Right Rating: 74 this is what the manager had to say about him..."This child is the one that marked a Palermo and Palacio, is only a child and is a great defender,"... A very talented young defender...he might be one of the biggest risers when Mexican league gets reviewed this time...A regular starter for Atlas at the age of 18 12 starts & 1035 minutes in Clausura so far..(from a possible 15 games)... Copa Libertadores 2008- 4 starts, 1 sub around 390 minutes ...( out of a possible 6 in group stages.)...Atlas ended as toppers in a group that also contains Boca JUniors..now they are set to face LANUS in the knockout stage! With few weeks to go for Mexican ratings, I wouldn't be surprised if he can make an 83!...

    Young Argentine Talent

    NEW UPDATE (14/10/09) - PLEASE READ: I haven't updated this thread for a long, long time, and to be quite honest, I can't be bothered to go through a complete overhaul on this whole, mammoth post. Feel free to read through it still; I'm sure it still makes 75% sense but from now on, I shall be completing individual updates on each player, just to give you an idea on how well they finished the Clausura, where they are now, how they are doing and what the future holds for them. Click the links below for the latest update on said player: Matias De Federico Mauro Formica ---------- Initially, I started this thread looking at the promising Federico Mancuello. However, after continued scouting, I have unearthed numerous other talents that have showed early promise this Clausura. I must stress, however, that I do not claim to have found any of these players. Indeed if you believe you deserve some credit, let me know, (with proof!!!) and I will issue praise where it is due. I am just offering my own reports on each of the players in my own style. Here, I will report on a number of talents, updating their statistics as the season progresses. I must stress, however, that no predictions will be made at this early stage as it is too soon to predict in my opinion. As the Clausura reaches it's climax, however, I will look into hazarding some predictions. All players are rated 78 or under, bar one - Milton Caraglio - and have all featured heavily for their respective teams in Argentina this Clausura, whereas, they were more or less restricted to fleeting subtitute appearances in recent times. The following players are featured in this thread: MARCONE, Ivan - 74-rated, 20-year-old Midfielder for Arsenal de Serandi RODRIGUEZ, James - 76-rated, 17-year-old Midfielder/Forward for Banfield CASTILLO, Fabian - 75-rated, 20-year-old Forward for Colon de Santa Fe DE FEDERICO, Matias - 77-rated, 20-year-old Midfielder/Forward for Huracan MONZON, Gaston - 73-rated, 21-year-old Goalkeeper for Huracan PASTORE, Javier - 78-rated, 19-year-old Midfielder/Forward for Huracan MANCUELLO, Federico - 75-rated, 19-year-old Midfielder for Independiente VITTOR, Sergio - 74-rated, 19-year-old Midfielder for Independiente FORMICA, Mauro - 75-rated, 20-year-old Forward for Newell's Old Boys PILLUD, Ivan - 75-rated, 22-year-old Defender for Newell's Old Boys AVELDANO, Lucas - 74-rated 23-year-old Defender for Racing Club MATIAS MARTINEZ, Alfredo - 72-rated, 21-year-old Defender for Racing Club BURDISSO, Guillermo - 76-rated, 20-year-old Defender for Rosario Central CARAGLIO, Milton - 80-rated, 20-year-old Forward for Rosario Central CHAVEZ, Christian - 73-rated, 21-year-old Forward for San Lorenzo OTAMENDI, Nicolas - 75-rated, 21-year-old Defender for Velez Sarsfield I would personally recommend you take a look at Radebe20's thread entitled Argentinian Analysis. He keeps a much closer eye on Argentinian Football, and will keep you up to date with the exact goings on from all over Argentina: Argentinian Analysis ---------- MARCONE, Ivan First discovered here, I believe, by Radebe20: Argentinian Analysis Stats Name: MARCONE, Ivan Club: Arsenal de Serandi Age: 20 D.O.B.: 30/06/88 Position: CM Squad Number: 30 SM Rating: 74 Predicted Rating Increase: +3 --> 77 Profile Marcone is a midfielder who is beginning to make more of an impression on the Arsenal first team slowly but surely. Radebe20 informs that Marcone is actually a defender by trade, but has been utilised in more or less in a central midfield role. He first came to prominence for El Viaducto last Apertura making the odd substitute's appearance and posted an impressive record as Arsenal remained unbeaten in any game that Marcone featured in. This Season Marcone has again been appearing as a substitute this season, but his appearances have been more frequent and for long lengths of playing time. What is most promising is that he was included in the starting XI in round 7 of the Clausura playing the full 90 minutes as Arsenal went down 2-0 to Banfield, replacing Carlos Castiglione in the starting lineup (and only due to 2 penalties did Arsenal lose - Banfield keeper Christian Luchetti grabbing his 2nd and 3rd of the season!!!). Marcone gave a solid account of himself, and, all being well, will have done enough to keep his place in the side for the following week's fixture. 2008 Apertura Starts: 0 Sub Apps: 3 Total Mins: 53 Goals: 0 Assists: 0 Shots (On Target): 0 (0) 2009 Clausura Starts: 1 Sub Apps: 4 Total Mins: 221 Goals: 0 Assists: 0 Shots (On Target): 3 (3) ---------- RODRIGUEZ, James First discovered here, by up_gunners. Columbian starlet - James Rodriguez Stats Name: RODRIGUEZ, James Club: Banfield Age: 17 B.O.B.: 12/07/91 Position: AM Squad Number: 13 SM Rating: 76 Predicted Rating Increase: +1 --> 77 Profile Rodriguez kind of goes against my rule of thumb for this thread in the sense that he is actually Columbian and he hasn't had a single start to his name so far in his career. However, he appears to be such a talent, that I couldn't leave him out. He started his career at the very tender age of 16, turning in numerous performances for Envigado, a small Columbian side. He made such an impression however, that he earned himself a transfer to Argentinian side Banfield, who are continuing to nurture his raw talent. up_gunners also reports that he has represented Columbia at under-17 level, making his debut at the age of just 15. This Season Despite being expected to linger in the shadows this Clausura while he plys his trade, Rodriguez has impressed on a few occasions from the substitute's bench. His most notable appearance came against Rosario Central, in which he scored a 25-yard rocket to fully show how much potential he has. The link is shown below and, remembering that he is still only 17, it is remarkable to think about this guy's potential future. Hopefully, as the Clausura continues, he can keep making the odd substitute appearance and, if he continues to impress, he could warrant a starting role. I wouldn't put him down for a great rise at the minute, but he is definately one to keep an eye on. 2009 Clausura Starts: 0 Sub Apps: 8 Total Mins: 136 Goals: 1 Assists: 0 Shots (On Target): 3 (3) ---------- Below is a link showing Rodriguez' solitary professional goal, and what a goal it is! On as a substitute, the ball ricochets kindly into the path of Rodriguez who, without hesitation, takes one touch and unleashes an unbelievable effort into the top corner from 25 yards out. This guy is ONLY 17. WATCH THIS! Rodriguez goal, 0:36 A0LGyg0m0wM ---------- CASTILLO, Fabian Credit goes to Radebe for the following player, who, I believe, picked up on him first in his Argentinian Analysis thread: Argentinian Analysis Stats Name: CASTILLO, Fabian Club: Colon de Santa Fe Age: 20 D.O.B.: 03/05/88 Position: CF Squad Number: 30 SM Rating: 75 Predicted Rating Increase: +5 --> 80 Profile Castillo is seen as the long-term replacement to Esteban Fuertes, the club's all-time leading goalscorer, at Colon. Although of a small and slight figure, Castillo makes up for that with an incredible work rate. Indeed, Radebe20 describes Castillo as an Argetinian Paul Scholes, which is quite apt. While other young Colon prospects Acosta and Sciorillo have made more of a first team impression in recent times, it is Castillo who has forced his way into the reckoning for the start of the 2009 Clausura. This Season Castillo has burst on to the scene solely this season, being thrown straight into the squad for his first appearance in the season opening game against River Plate. Castillo helped Colon to an impressive 2-2 draw, away from home to one of the top teams in Argentina. Castillo started the following 5 games, although he has been brought off in each game he has started this Clausura. He was kept on the bench for this weekend's 3-0 win over San Lorenzo, playing out the final 7 minutes. Colon are performing brilliantly at the moment holding 2nd place in the table. Whether or not they, and Castillo, can keep it up, only time can tell. For me, if Castillo can score a goal or two in the coming weeks, then his place in the side should be secure. But, no matter how well he plays, strikers are judged by the goals they score. 2009 Clausura Starts: 6 Sub Apps: 3 Total Mins: 428 Goals: 0 Assists: 1 Shots (On Target): 6 (2) ---------- DE FEDERICO, Matias Name: DE FEDERICO, Matias Club: Huracan Age: 20 D.O.B.: 01/01/89 Position: Fwd Squad Number: 20 SM Rating: 77 Predicted Rating Increase: +7 --> 84 Matias De Federico has been one of many Huracan players who have achieved above expectations this Clausura. His stock has sky-rocketed and for that reason, he is almost certain of a big rise to 83, with an 84 not out of the question by any means. Do not be surprised by any means if you see this guy moving to Europe this Summer. If not, then he is almost certain to be packing his bags sooner, rather than later. Profile This guy may just be my early top tip so far this Clausura, and when you have a look at his videos below, you will see why. Standing at a very diminutive 5' 7", De Federico is a very good dribbler whilst also being able to pack a punch in his shot. Whilst being on the substitutes bench for a number of games during the 2008 Apertura, be was largely ignored until the latter stages of the season when he was finally given a chance. After a brief, 15-minute spell as a substitute in August, De Federico was handed his first start in the final game of the season at home to Velez Sarsfield. Huracan posted an impressive 3-0 victory in this game and no thanks to De Federico, who sent them on their way with an unstoppable 25-30 yard strike (see link below). A sign of things to come next Clausura, perhaps? This Season De Federico's impressive end to the season got a lot of people talking about his potential. Manager Angel Cappa put his faith in him and started him in the season opener. De Federico played the full 90 minutes as Huracan started the season with a 1-0 victory, and he hasn't looked back since. He has started every game this Clausura and has been instrumental to Huracan's success. In fact, many people say that Huracan are the team that are playing the most attractive football in 2009, and De Federico is certainly contributing to this. His fantastic dribbling skills, close control and agile movements are causing defences problems week in, week out, so much so, that he is already being touted for a move to Europe. His fine recent form was rewarded by national team coach Diego Maradona with a call-up to the senior side, although he did not figure for the first XI. 2008 Apertura Starts: 1 Sub Apps: 1 Total Mins: 86 Goals: 1 Assists: 0 Shots (On Target): 3 (2) 2009 Clausura Starts: 15 Sub Apps: 0 Total Mins: 1295 Goals: 4 Assists: 7 Shots (On Target): 36 (20) ---------- This first video shows De Federico scoring his first professional goal in the final game of the Apertura against Velez Sarsfield. It's a stunning strike, but don't blink - you'll miss it! Picking up the ball 25-30 yards out, De Federico unleashes an unstoppable shot into the top corner. Top quality, although it's a shame that there are no replays for this effort. THIS IS A MUST SEE De Federico goal, 0:00 knwtqrw8uTQ ---------- Below is a video of Huracan's impressive 4-1 win at Racing Club, in which De Federico scores twice. His first is particularly impressive as he dribbles from 20-25 yards out past one defender, shows excellent acceleration to power past another defender as if he wasn't there, before chipping the goalkeeper delightfully. For his second he shows good instincts to dispatch well after the keeper saves from a prior effort. Two De Federico goals, 0:52 & 2:21 ZezMUZnFbQk ---------- Below shows De Federico's 3rd goal of the Clausura, the opener against Independiente - a game which the opponents came from behind to win 2-1. De Federico receives a ball pulled back from the byline, and he makes no mistake from 12-yards, firing a right-footed shot low and hard to Fabian Assman's left-hand side. De Federico goal, 0:00 u1K8vULzhUE ---------- In the video below, De Federico is seen scoring and assisting in the Round 12 win over Godoy Cruz. He picks the ball up inside his own half, skips past a challenge and plays a great through ball for Federico Nieto to score Huracan's 2nd goal. He then goes on to score himself, waltzing through the opposition defence before slamming a left-footed strike home. A very nice goal. De Federico assist, 1:07, and goal, 2:00 QwrngxNN_TA ---------- Below is a quote from goal.com, as they include De Federico in the Argentine Clausura Team of the Week, Round 7, after De Federico helped his side to an impressive 3-0 win over Lanus: goal.com also recently did an interview with him about a possible move to Europe, where he expressed his desire to play in either Spain or England. He has already been linked with Barcelona, along with several Italian clubs, but this could be just the rumour mill at work. For the full interview, click here. But below are a few of the quotes he made: When asked about his call-up to the Argentina national team, De Federico had this to say: I must stress: this player is going to be huge! ---------- MONZON, Gaston Before I begin this Profile, it must be stressed that this player was discovered elsewhere before this thread was made. I am going to do my own profile on this player, although there is a specific thread (written by thebugel) for this player which can be found here: Gaston Monzon - (73) Huracán Regular Stats Name: MONZON, Gaston Club: Huracan Age: 21 D.O.B.: 13/05/87 Position: GK Squad Number: 22 SM Rating: 73 Predicted Rating Increase: +9 --> 82 Profile Gaston Monzon is a young, tall shot stopper, who has recently broken into the first team at Huracan. He first came to prominence at the end of the 2008 Clausura, after numerous appearances on the substitutes bench. Oscar Alejandro Limia, the previous number one between the sticks at Huracan until now, was released at the end of the 2008 Apertura, leaving his position up for grabs. In anticipation of his departute, Monzon was given two starts at the end of the season and he impressed, keeping one clean sheet and letting in a solitary goal against Arsenal. This Season Monzon's impressive showings at the end of the Apertura led him to claim the starting role for the season opener at home to San Martin. Monzon hasn't looked back since, playing 7 full fixtures in total, keeping two clean sheets in the process. Monzon has let in 10 goals so far this season as they hold a strong position at the top end of the table. Monzon should be in for a good rise as he is set to keep his place for the rest of the Clausura. 2008 Apertura Starts: 2 Sub Apps: 0 Total Mins: 180 Clean Sheets: 1 Goals Conceded: 1 Saves: 4 2009 Clausura Starts: 15 Sub Apps: 0 Total Mins: 1450 Clean Sheets: 5 Goals Conceded: 17 Saves: 39 ---------- PASTORE, Javier Stats Name: PASTORE, Javier Club: Huracan Age: 19 D.O.B.: 20/06/89 Position: Fwd/AM Squad Number: 16 SM Rating: 78 Predicted Rating Increase: +6 --> 84 Profile Javier Pastore, along with De Federico, has been making a hell of an impression this Clausura. At a towering 187cm tall, Pastore occupates an attacking role in midfield behind the front two. Pastore possesses a good touch and excellent finishing ability. Huracan picked him up from a second tier team in Argentina, Talleres de Cordoba. He came through the youth ranks here before making his debut in 2007, making five appearances for los tallarines before he was snapped up by Huracan in 2008. After the solitary substitute appearance made during the 2008 Claususa, Pastore was really given the chance to shine in the Apertura, totalling 11 appearances, 6 of which were starts. What was most notable was Pastore highly efficient shooting as he almost always made the goalkeeper earn his money. While he only scored once, it laid the foundations for the following Clausura, and SM rewarded him with a +4 in the latest rating changes. This Season Like De Federico, Pastore has started every game this Clausura, getting a full 90 minutes on four occasions. Pastore hasn't been quite as efficient with his shooting this year, but has been much more clinical, with 3 goals to his name so far. The future looks bright for Pastore, who seems to have a first XI place secure for the rest of the Clausura. If he can continue to show his promising talent, and show more of his creative skills which he has done, he will be in for another good rise in the summer. 2008 Apertura Starts: 6 Sub Apps: 5 Total Mins: 601 Goals: 1 Assists: 1 Shots (On Target): 14 (12) 2009 Clausura Starts: 15 Sub Apps: 0 Total Mins: 1312 Goals: 7 Assists: 2 Shots (On Target): 36 (17) ---------- Below is the same video as shown for De Federico. Pastore is seen scoring the 5th/last goal of the game, slotting in nicely from an acute angle after being put through on goal. Pastore goal, 3:12 ZezMUZnFbQk ---------- Below, Pastore is seen scoring twice at the weekend against Lanus. His first strike is quite something. Receiving the ball from the left, he hits the ball first time on the half-volley from an acute angle about 12 yards out. With the keeper rushing over, Pastore directs his shot expertly, close to the near post - very emphatic. His second is simply a tap-in after very impressive dribbling skills from De Federico (see above profile). Two Pastore goals, 0:18 & 1:24 jE07jlcEamA ---------- Pastore shows great composure in this video, below, in scoring his sides 3rd goal. A great cross to the back post finds Pastore in space. Instead of striking it first time and potentially mucking the chance up, he makes the defender look silly with a sharp turn before neatly nutmegging the goalkeeper. Pastore also makes an assist in this game but, due to the poor quality video, I'm not sure which one it is. Pastore goal, 1:32 knwtqrw8uTQ ---------- MANCUELLO, Federico Stats Name: MANCUELLO, Federico Club: Independiente Age:19 D.O.B.: 23/06/89 Position: LM/CM Squad Number: 28 SM Rating: 75 Predicted Rating Increase: +8 --> 83 Mancuello has really burst on to the scene this Clausura. After very little game time before this calendar year, Mancuello has racked up an impressive amount of starts and minutes this term, grabbing two goals and an assist along the way. He has impressed many with his play and is being tipped for big things in the future. Unfortunately, he has missed the last two games through injury. I believe that this is just a minor injury, so hopefully he will bounce back from this in the next week or two. If he can get a few more games under his belt before the Clausura ends, I could easily envisage an increase to 84 being on the cards, but keep him anyway, as he has the potential to go higher. Profile Federico Mancuello is a promising, young, Argentine midfielder who has broken into the Independiente first team this Clausura. He plays primarily on the left but can also adapt his game well in a holding role in central midfield. After several years development in "El Rojo's" youth team, Mancuello was included on the substitutes bench for the final game of the 2008 Apertura at home to Arsenal de Serandi. Coach Miguel Santoro gave Mancuello a run out for the last 10 minutes or so in a game Independiente lost 2-1 to round off a largely disappointing Apertura in which they finished a lowly 18th. This Season Santoro again included Mancuello on the subs bench for the opening of the 2009 Clausura against Velez Sarfield. He was given a longer stint on the pitch this time managing 30 minutes of playing time and managing to get a shot on target as a 0-0 draw was played out. The impressive display earned him a starting spot in the following week's fixture - a place which he has kept since. This includes the full 90 minutes in Independiente's impressive 2-0 win against Boca Juniors. He has played every game but one that he has started on the left-hand side of midfield (he started his first game in central midfield before being moved out wide the following week). He possesses a strong left foot with which he can produce good quality crosses and has a good eye for goal (see video's below). He, along with Daniel Montenegro have been the standout performers for Independiente this Clausura, which has seen some very up and down form for the team as a whole in terms of results. Mancuello is a very talented younster and has the potential to go a lot further in his career. 2008 Apertura Starts: 0 Sub Apps: 1 Total Mins: 8 2009 Clausura Starts: 11 Sub Apps: 1 Total Mins: 904 Goals: 2 Assists: 1 Shots (On Target): 19 (12) ---------- The following video shows Mancuello whipping in a dangerous cross from the right hand side with his left boot. His free-kick finds Leandro Gioda in space to nod home and put Independiente in the lead. Mancuello Assist, 0:00 sBHCGC2So88 ---------- This second video shows Mancuello's first career goal in the 5-1 humbling defeat at the hand's of a Jose Sand inspired Lanus outfit. Sergio Vittor's long-range effort deflects kindly into the path of Mancuello, who reacts well and produces a very composed finish into the right-hand corner, almost passing the ball past the 'keeper. A nice finish. Mancuello goal, 1:23 Myte2OeE7es ---------- This next goal from the very next week's game by Mancuello is even more impressive. Following De Federico's opener for Huracan, Mancuello responds almost immediately by dispossessing his opponent, striding forward, before unleashing a powerful shot into the top left hand corner. You wouldn't really expect to aim there, and neither did the 'keeper. But he executed his shot excellently with aplomb. Mancuello goal, 1:03 u1K8vULzhUE ---------- VITTOR, Sergio Stats Name: VITTOR, Sergio Club: Independiente Age: 19 D.O.B.: 09/06/89 Position: CM Squad Number: 29 SM Rating: 74 Predicted Rating Increase: +3 --> 77 Profile Sergio Vittor in another one of Independiente's promising young midfielders along with Mancuello. Vittor tends to hold a holding midfield role in the centre of the park, restricting his opportunities to go forward, although he has appeared on the right-hand side of midfield before. However, at 187cm tall, Vittor makes a very commanding presence. With Inde struggling in the 2008 Apertura, coach Santoro looked at blooding youngsters Vittor and Mancuello for experience, what with little to play for in the league. Vittor first appeared for Inde in the 1-0 defeat to Tigre, playing the full 90 minutes. He went on to make a further two starts that season, plus being brought on at half-time against Godoy. In a 2009 Torneo de Verano (Spanish for summer tournaments, i.e. a pre-season tournament), Vittor made 3 starts as Inde posted impressive wins over San Lorenzo and Racing Club, sandwiching a 1-1 draw against River Plate. Vittor's impressive performances led him to earn a starting role for the season opener in February. This Season Vittor started the season well, making the stating line-up for the first 3 games of the Clausura. After a promising 0-0 against Velez, with a good performance by Vittor along the way, Inde crashed to a 3-0 defeat at San Martin. Vittor, along with Mancuello, however were the only ones to keep their place in the starting XI for the following week's fixture against Racing Club. Unfortunately, Vittor picked up an injury in this game, forcing him to depart after 54 minutes. Vittor left Inde in a strong, 1-0, winning position - a match they went on to win 2-0. Vittor has been out ever since, but did make the substitute's bench for last weekend's game against Newell's. Hopefully, Vittor can reclaim his place in the next week or so. 2008 Apertura Starts: 3 Sub Apps: 1 Total Mins: 315 Goals: 0 Assists: 0 Shots (On Target): 1 (1) 2009 Clausura Starts: 5 Sub Apps: 0 Total Mins: 390 Goals: 0 Assists: 0 Shots (On Target): 2 (1) ---------- FORMICA, Mauro Discovered here by BenReado: Mauro Formica Stats Name: FORMICA, Mauro Club: Newell's Old Boys Age:20 D.O.B.: 04/04/88 Position: AM/Fwd Squad Number: 33 SM Rating: 75 Predicted Rating Increase: +8 --> 83 Profile Mauro Formica is an exciting talent who is showing fast signs of development this Clausura. Younger brother of Lautaro Formica who plays for Godoy, he made his debut for Newell's at the age of just 18 against Colon. He was on the bench for many games of the 2007 Apertura, only to be an unused substitute. However, he did make a couple of appearances from the bench, along with one start against Banfield. However, Newell's were crushed 4-0 by a rampant Banfield outfit and Dario Cvitanich in particular, who bagged a first-half 17-minute hat-trick. Formica has few chances to shine in this match and was restricted to fleeting appearances to the following Clausura, but always offered the odd flash of brilliance to underline his potential. It was at the end of the 2008 Apertura, however, where he really grabbed his chance. On as a substitute against Racing, he grabbed a goal as Newell's sealed a comprehensive 3-0 victory. This, along with other off-season developments, enabled him to grab a starting role for the following Clausura. Formica also has four appearances for the Argentinian under-17's under his belt, grabbing two goals in that time. This Season This Clausura, he was given his chance by starting the opening game of the season against Gimnasia la Plata. Formica grabbed this chance with both hands, scoring twice, the second of which was an abosolute beauty - see below. This got the Argentinian press talking and sealed his place in the starting XI. After Newell's won the first two games of the Clausura and sat at the top of the table, they have been on a bad run of late, picking up just 3 points out of a possible 15. Formica's goals dried up and he lost his place in the side against Independiente in round 7. However, on a substitute, he grabbed a goal to give his side a lifeline, although, ultimately, it was to no avail as Newell's were crushed 4-1. Hopefully, the goal was enough to give Formica a place back in the side for round 8 of the Clausura. 2007-2008 Starts: 4 Sub Apps: 5 Total Mins: 380 Goals: 1 Assists: 0 Shots (On Target): 2 (1) 2009 Clausura Starts: 12 Sub Apps: 1 Total Mins: 1007 Goals: 5 Assists: 2 Shots (On Target): 22 (12) ---------- The first of a series of videos is of Formica scoring on the final day of the Apertura against Racing Club. The first goal of the game, he receives the ball in space in the area, makes a defender look silly with a sharp turn before slotting past the keeper comfortably. Nice goal. To skip to a zoomed in replay where it's clearer, fast forward to 54 seconds. Formica goal, 0:00 phep-h1xl58 ---------- Below is a video showing Formica scoring twice on the opening weekend of the Clausura. He actually only had two shots on goal in the whole of this game - quite an impressive strike rate to start the season! The first shows a neat finish as he turns in a cross from the right first time on the half-volley. He does well to anticipate the near-post cross and finishes with aplomb. His second is something much more special. Apologies for the poor quality video and the lack of a replay, but you can clearly see Formica audaciously chipping the opposing goalkeeper from a full 30 yards. WATCH THIS (2:01) Two Formica Goals, 0:00 & 2:01 F2aDRkpiD-8 ---------- The final video shows Formica scoring in Newell's crushing defeat to Inde in round 7 of the Clausura. Not as impressive as the last vid, but he really shows a poacher's instinct to stap the ball home from close range. The goal made the game 2-1 and could have given Newell's a way back into the game, but it wasn't to be. Formica goal, 1:17 KY7AfnYGHAE ---------- The following is a quote from the website goal.com, who included Formica in their team of the week for Round 9 of the Clausura after he helped his Newell's side to a 1-1 draw away to Tigre grabbing the assist in this game: ---------- PILLUD, Ivan (Pillud is shown on the right of the picture) Stats Name: PILLUD, Ivan Club: Newell's Old Boys Age: 22 D.O.B.: 24/04/86 Position: RB Squad Number: 2 SM Rating: 75 Predicted Rating Increase: +7 --> 82 Profile Although SM has this guy listed as Ivan Pillud, I have another source calling him Ignacio Pillud, so I do hope he's the same person! I'm not sure what the story behind that is. Anyhow, Pillud is another player to make a name for himself after a fair few years in the shadows, having to wait until the age of 22 before making his debut. Although his primary position is at RB, he can also play further forward in midfield. He was an unused substitute in 8 games during the 2008 Apertura before he finally came off the bench at half-time against Velez Sarsfield to replace captain Rolando Schiavi. Schiavi, out for the rest of the season through injury was replaced by Pillud for the final two games, taking up the right-back position. Pillud performed solidly as NOB finished a repectable 5th. This Season Pillud started the season strongly starting the first 6 games of the Clausura, completing a full 90 minutes in each game. Interestingly, however, Pillud was dropped for last weekend's game against Independiente - a game in which they were comfortably beaten 4-1. I would be shocked if Pillud did not return to the starting line-up after such a disappointing display from los leprosas. Nicolas Spolli, the CB, also got sent off in this fixture, further leading me to believe he will return next weekend. 2008 Apertura Starts: 2 Sub Apps: 1 Total Mins: Goals: 0 Assists: 0 2009 Clausura Starts: 13 Sub Apps: 0 Total Mins: 1169 Goals: 0 Assists: 0 ---------- SPERDUTTI, Mauricio Stats Name: SPERDUTTI, Mauricio Club: Newell's Old Boys Age: 23 D.O.B.: 16/02/86 Positions: RM/CM Squad Number: 17 SM Rating: 78 Predicted Rating Increase: +3 --> 81 Profile This Season 2008 Apertura Starts: 1 Sub Apps: 13 Total Mins: 341 Goals: 0 Assists: 0 This Clausura Starts: 8 Sub Apps: 5 Total Mins: 730 Goals: 2 Assists: 1 ---------- AVELDANO, Lucas Stats Name: AVELDANO, Lucas Club: Racing Club Age: 23 D.O.B.: 19/07/85 Positions: CB Squad Number: 6 SM Rating: 74 Predicted Rating Increase: +8 --> 82 Profile Lucas Aveldano is a tall centre-back, plying his trade for Racing Club. Aveldano arrived at Racing in a transfer from Argentine Second Division side Aletico de Rafaela in July 2008. My sources don't indicate to me that he played any games for this side, but I would be very surprised if he didn't, with him spending 3 years with the side. Aveldano made several appearances in the 2008 Apertura, starting on three occasions and coming on as a substitute twice. Racing had an indifferent Apertura, finishing 14th, and Aveldano found it difficult to make a great impression on his game. However, brief glimpes clearly showed that he had the raw talent and sufficient skills to improve as a central defender. This Season This Clausura, Aveldano has clearly made a breakthrough in his progression as a player. Aveldano has struck up a strong relationship with fellow centre-back Alfredo Matias Martinez (see below) as Racing have gradually begun to improve up the league table. It seem to coincidence to me that Racing's improval has coincided with these two player's marshalling the centre of defence. Racing have not let in a goal in the last four fixtures in which Aveldano has played, including wins against River Plate and Rosario Central, and a solid draw against Estudiantes. 2008 Apertura Starts: 3 Sub Apps: 2 Total Mins: 300 Goals: 0 Clean Sheets: 2 2009 Clausura Starts: 12 Sub Apps: 1 Total Mins: 1127 Goals: 0 Clean Sheets: 6 ---------- MATIAS MARTINEZ, Alfredo Stats Name: MATIAS MARTINEZ, Alfredo Club: Racing Club Age: 21 D.O.B.: 24/02/88 Position: CB Squad Number: 34 SM Rating: 72 Predicted Rating Increase: +11 --> 83 Profile Alfredo Matias Martinez is a young, tall centre-back, who can also, and has appeared at left-back. The younger of the two centre-backs which have forced their way into the reckoning this Clausura, Matias Martinez has come through the youth ranks at Racing. He featured sparingly in the 2008 Clausura and the 2008 Apertura, making 4 substitutes appearances and one start. That start was the one game he started at left-back, as he filled in for the regular full-back who was absent with injury. In pre-season, Matias Martinez featured in a game against San Lorenzo in the Torneo de Verano, where he netted the winning goal. This impressive performance helped him nail down a starting spot on the opening day of the Clausura. This Season Racing endured a shocking start to the Clausura, losing 4-1 at home to Huracan. Matias Martinez in fact gave Racing the lead with a good header, only for Huracan to run away with the rest of the game. Matias Martinez' poor defensive performance led to him being omitted from the starting line-up the following week, but he regained his place in the side for the game against Argentinos Juniors. Since then, despite another heavy loss to Tigre, Racing's defensive displays have generally improved dramatically, mainly due to Matias Martinez and Aveldano forging such a strong partnership in the centre of defence. Like Aveldano, Matias Martinez has featured in the all of the last four games - all of which Racing managed to keep a clean sheet. 2008 Clausura/Apertura Starts: 1 Sub Apps: 2 Total Mins: 102 Goals: 0 Clean Sheets: 0 2009 Clausura Starts: 12 Sub Apps: 0 Total Mins: 1077 Goals: 3 Assists: 1 Clean Sheets: 5 ---------- Below is a video of Matias Martinez scoring in the Torneo de Verano against San Lorenzo in January. In what was a tight game against two evenly-matched sides on the day, the tall centre-half settled things with a powerful header in the second half, directing his header well and out of reach of the opposing goalkeeper. Matias Martinez goal, 1:37 zPIw9gyM6e4 ---------- This second video shows Matias Martinez' first professional goal, scoring what only proved to be a consolation goal in the end, as Racing were thrashed 4-1 by Huracan. Again from a set-piece (0:00, first goal), he rises well to dispatch a well-placed downward header into the bottom corner to give Racing the lead. Matias Martinez goal, 0:00 G6lmSyYIiOw ---------- BURDISSO, Guillermo Stats Name: BURDISSO, Guillermo Club: Rosario Central Age: 20 D.O.B.: 24/04/88 Position: CB Squad Number: 28 SM Rating: 76 Predicted Rating Increase: +5 --> 81 Profile You think you recognise the name? Yes, he is the younger brother of Inter Milan defender, Nicolas Burdisso. At a very heady 190cm tall, he is a towering presence in the air. Little is known really about Burdisso, as he has solely burst on to the scene this Clausura. He has no prior experience of professional, first-team football. I hope to find more information about his background as the season progresses. This Season After Rosario made a poor start to the Clausura, picking up a solitary point from their first three games, Burdisso was thrown into action in the defeat to Banfield. It is unknown whether Walter Ribonetto, who Burdisso has replaced in the side, was dropped or injured by the time of this fixture. However, after not being in the squad at all against Banfield, Ribonetto has been an unused substitute since then. Against Banfield, Burdisso showed promise and also collected a consolation goal towards the end, with the game already lost. He earned himself a starting space for the following week and has kept his place since. He scored in his second game, helped his side keep a clean sheet in the 5-0 drubbing of Arsenal and helped his team to a good point in the 1-1 draw against Velez. It appears that Burdisso has replaced Ribonetto in the Rosario first XI for the foreseeable future. 2009 Clausura Starts: 12 Sub Apps: 0 Total Mins: 999 Goals: 2 Clean Sheets: 4 Red Cards: 1 ---------- In Burdisso's debut for Rosario, he nodded in a late consolation goal in a 3-1 defeat to Banfield. What I think is most impressive from this clip is the height he manages to get on his jump, challenging - and beating - the onrushing goalkeeper to the cross. Debut Burdisso goal, 1:54 A0LGyg0m0wM ---------- In the very next fixture, Burdisso grabs his second career goal from as many appearances. After San Lorenzo take the lead, Burdisso inspires a Rosario comeback by heading the equaliser from a corner. He meets the ball well before connecting with a powerful header leaving the keeper with no chance. Burdisso goal, 1:11 VycoucohqYU ---------- CARAGLIO, Milton Stats Name: CARAGLIO, Milton Club: Rosario Central Age: 20 D.O.B.: 01/12/88 Position: Fwd Squad Number: 17 SM Rating: 80 Predicted Rating Increase: +2 --> 82 Profile Milton Caraglio is a tall, strong, athletic striker who has started the 2009 Clausura in great form. Excellent in the air, good on the ball and with a hefty shot in his locker, he could well be one of the top strikers in the whole Argentine league this year. Caraglio is the highest rated player on the list with a rating of 80 from SM. This is due to the fact that he has in fact been around for a while, making his debut for Rosario on 17/03/07, aged just 18. He started, playing the full 90 minutes in the 1-0 defeat to eventual champions to San Lorenzo, putting in a promising display, getting all 3 of his shots, on target. He made 3 more starts and 4 more substitute appearances that Clausura, at a time when Angel Di Maria still graced the Argentinian league. Unfortunately, despite the odd flash of promise, he was never really able to grab his opportunities with both hands and convert his starts into goals. Caraglio went into wilderness so to speak for the next year of so as he was restricted to youth team games, with two solitary substitutes appearances for the first team in the 2008 Clausura. However, he came back to the fore that Apertura as he began to stake a claim in the senior side. A series of sustitute appearances and starts, along with a couple of goals tempted SM to give him a rise to 80. This Season This season, Caraglio has started all 7 games, scoring 4 along the way. His place in the side is secure and, if he continues his goalscoring form, will be set for a good rise into the mid-80's this summer. He continues to impress with his strength, flair and heading ability and looks like a force to be reckoned with this Clausura. Although the most expensive player to buy out of my list, I would seriously recommend signing him as his value could skyrocket. 2007-2008 Starts: 10 Sub Apps: 8 Total Mins: 1107 Goals: 3 Assists: 2 Shots (On Target): 21 (12) 2009 Clausura Starts: 13 Sub Apps: 0 Total Mins: 1102 Goals: 4 Assists: 1 Shots (On Target): 21 (13) ---------- Below is a video showcasing good, extended footage of Rosario's 2-0 win over Huracan, with Caraglio netting the second goal. After a nice ball over the top, Caraglio controls well before calmly slotting past the keeper - a very composed finish. There is a couple of earlier clips in this video of Caraglio missing a couple of chances, but getting in good positions in the box for those chances. Caraglio goal, 2:54 nP4HIXDFuw0 ---------- This video shows Caraglio's second senior goal - a good, powerful, well-placed, header into the corner which left the goalkeeper with no chance. Caraglio goal, 0:22 2AtVI83M2gA ---------- The third video shows Caraglio's last goal of the Apertura, a brave header at the near post, powerfully heading past the goalkeeper at his near post. Caraglio goal, 0:00 4_dq8qec2tY ---------- This is Caraglio's first goal of the Clausura, taking advantage of the keeper being slow off his line to slot past him well from an acute angle. Caraglio goal, 0:00 B2x33pC0EOo ---------- These are in my opinion Caraglio's best goals and why you should be excited about this player. His first (0:00, first clip) is an impressively powerful strike from the left had side of the box. The sheer pace of the shot beats the goalkeeper when you think it wouldn't with it being from such an angle. His second (0:50) displays Caraglio flair and athleticism. With the Arsenal defence in disarray trying to clear the ball, Caraglio shows no mercy in despatching the high ball with an impressive bycicle kick past the keeper, rushing back to his line. Top finish. Two Caraglio goals, 0:00 & 0:50 gB6Lpa9twwQ ---------- This last video shows Caraglio's 4th of the season to leave him joint 2nd in the goalscoring charts. Latching on to a cross from the left, Caraglio finishes well, although does have a kind bounce into the top corner via the turf to thank. Caraglio goal, 0:39 tnuTfsiQfNo ---------- CHAVEZ, Christian No more images I'm afraid! Stats Name: CHAVEZ, Christian Club: San Lorenzo Age: 21 B.O.B.: 04/06/87 Postion: AM/LM Squad Number: 24 SM Rating: 73 Predicted Rating Increase: +5 --> 78 Profile I was fairly surprised by Chavez' very low rating of 73 on SM when I found out how many times he has played for San Lorenzo, so I'm not sure if he is quite new to the database. He has been making appearances, although fleetingly, for over a year now, making his debut on 07/03/08 against Racing Club as a substitute. Chavez turned out to be a lucky charm for San Lorenzo as los santos won or drew every game in which Chavez appeared. This included one appearance in the Copa Libertadores as a late substitute against Real Potosi. When Chavez came on, his side were 2-0 down, but he helped turn the game on it's head as San Lorenzo made a fantastic comeback to win 3-2, with Chavez scoring the second goal. As the 2008 Apertura began, Chavez was restricted to a bench role, making infrequent appearances, but scoring once with a smart header in the emphatic 4-1 win over Huracan. Chavez also made another, brief, substitutes appearance in a.Copa Sudamericana defeat to Argentinos Juniors. This Season Chavez has began to make more of an impression on the first team this Clausura, but he is yet to nail down a starting role. He has started 3 games this season but he has yet to finish a game. If you see the first link below, you may see why as his end product is often off target. However, he possesses fantastic dribbling ability and, if he can develop his shooting ability, he may be able to command a starting role week in, week out. In addition to his Clausura appearances this season, Chavez has also made two appearances from the substitutes bench in the Copa Libertadores, both of which were lost 1-0. 2008 Clausura/Apertura Starts: 2 Sub Apps: 5 Total Mins: 310 Goals: 1 Assists: 0 Shots (On Target): 8 (5) 2009 Apertura Starts: 5 Sub Apps: 5 Total Mins: 484 Goals: 0 Assists: 1 Shots (On Target): 11 (6) ---------- I found this link, below, which is quite interesting. Although in Spanish, it not only shows some more recent clips of him playing and scoring for San Lorenzo, it also shows some early footage of Chavez as a youngster. These early clips clearly show his talent at a young age as he shows tremendous close control and vision. The clips in the latter part of the video are mixed with Chavez expressing some fantastic dribbling and the odd good shot. However, I consider most of his finishing here pretty woeful, so that's something for him to work on. Also, check out Chavez having a massive bust-up with a team mate over who should take the penalty, before Chavez goes and misses it!! Chavez highlights, past and present wlOLh1BHKt8 I should be noted that, although he played a lot on the left hand side of midfield last season, he has tended to hold more of an attacking role this season. With this in mind, I wouldn't be surprised if SM changed his position to Fwd/AM or AM/Fwd. ---------- OTAMENDI, Nicolas Stats Name: OTAMENDI, Nicolas Club: Velez Sarsfield Age: 21 D.O.B.: 12/02/88 Position: CB/RB Squad Number: 30 SM Rating: 75 Predicted Rating Increase: +8 --> 83 Profile Nicolas Otamendi is a promising young centre-back who plays for the high-flying Velez Sarsfield. Otamendi has rather been in the shadows at Velez for the past few years with few opportunities to shine at first team level. He slowly but surely, however, began to make infrequent appearances on the substitutes bench, only to be unused against Estudiantes in October last year. He did however come off the bench against Arsenal de Serandi just before half-time as Gaston Diaz withdrew and Otamendi took his place at RB/RWB. However Alejandro Gomez scored for Arsenal in the time Otamendi was on the pitch before half time, and again after the break as Velez squandered their three goal advantage to allow Arsenal to salvage a 3-3 draw. The two goals conceded were both from set pieces which did nothing to help Otamendi's stock and he was promptly replaced by Diaz for the next game and the rest of the season. This Season After spending the first two games on the bench of this season's Clausura, Otamendi has taken Waldo Ponce's spot in the starting XI, because of injury. Since then, he has started all 5 games and completed a full 90 minutes in all of them. Out of those 5 matches, Velez won three and drew two with Otamendi helping to keep two clean sheets along the way. Velez are currently 4th in the table and the ONLY team left in Argentina still unbeaten. It should be noted that Waldo Ponce returned to the squad at the weekend against Rosario Central but was an unused substitute. This can only be a good thing if Otamendi it to keep his place in the starting lineup. It is reported in Argentina that Velez coach Ricardo Gareca is tossing and turning on the notion to whether or not Ponce should return to the line-up, or whether Otamendi should keep his place after a string of impressive performances. Here are his career stats for Velez thus far: 2008 Apertura Starts: 0 Sub Apps: 1 Total Minutes: 47 2009 Clausura Starts: 13 Sub Apps: 0 Total Min: 1170 Clean Sheets: 6 Fouls Commited: 14 ---------- The following players have made the odd appearance this Clausura and could be in with a rise. Until they play more regularly or make a decent number of appearances, I won't be doing a profile on them. I will add to this list when appropriate. Be aware though, this list is purely for me to keep an eye on who could be a potential big riser. I woulnd't recommend signing these players just yet as a lot of them have only had one substitute appearance this Clausura. ---------- Name - Club, Position, Age, SM Rating, Starts(Sub Apps), Total Mins, Goals, Assists ---------- ALFONSO, Facundo -

The next season he was the top scorer in the Polish second division with 21 goals. This summer UEFA Cup contenders, Lech Poznań splashed the cash for his signature hoping he'd be a player for the future. Instead, he continued his fine form and making the headlines in Poand.

    From the country that brought Forlan, Diogo, Viera, Cavani, Suarez and many more, here are the next name. +4 or more are in bold. Teams are in order, starting with last place Fenix and growing to top team River Plate. And yes, I do believe a few of these will play in Europe. Fornaroli, Cardaccio, Roman, Hernandez and Arizmendi are the most likely to make it.

    Taken from http://forum.valinor.com.br/showthread.php?t=42916 There you go Neller! After wasting no less than 3 hours and a half translating this text to English, I don't know who's the idiot anymore :s Anyway, the text is great, although a bit long. And sorry for the eventual spelling mistake - seven years on and I still can't write properly. Internet forums keep getting taken over by IDIOTS. We all know who they are: the stupid forum user that acts like they couldn't understand what we are saying, even when it's clear that even a monkey could; the girl that only talks about fluffy and childsh things and writes 99% of the words in different useless forms (like "ma", "ova") and fills her messages with smiles, making them illegible; the fool who seems to take everything seriously, pretending to be really smart; those retards who like to pretend that nothing is funny, just to act "cool"; the imbecile that thinks that posting a lot of messages, one after another, is a good way to be seen; etc. Point in fact, today the Internet is devasted by those IDIOTS in a way that us, poor normal people with an IQ above two digits, have become the minority, and victims of prejudice due to our irritating insistence in posting coherent and grammatically correct messages. If you're part of that minority, don't worry: YOUR PROBLEMS ARE OVER! Because... ... the Guide on How To Be An Idiot On Internet Forums has arrived!!! Now you'll learn how to become a complete IDIOT in less time than you imagine and with guaranteed results! Don't be embarrassed by your well written posts, full of information, anymore: learn how to post absolutely USELESS and RIDICULOUS things, and join the big league boys! The Guide on How To Be An Idiot On Internet Forums contains 9.5 easy steps, that even a complete dimwit can understand. This way, if you're already an idiot, you'll have the chance to take your art to perfection! Here we go: Step 1 - Registering yourself as an idiot (optional) This is an optional step, so, if you want, you can jump straight to Step 2. Of course, you need to be a registered member in order to use most forums (everybody that doesn't know that is an IDIOT), therefore it's obvious that this step isn't about how to register for an username, but how can you do it and look like an IDIOT. Firstly, you have to pick a nickname. If you really want to start improving your IDIOT-like skills right from the start, I advise you to pick the most moronic nickname you can think of. The options are relatively limited, but there's still enough to satisfy even the most picky of the IDIOTS. You can: a) create a nickname that's either mispelled or suspiciously incomplete, such as "Gandorf" or "Wayne Roon"; create a redundant nickname that leaves it clear that you don't understand anything in English, but wanted a "cool" nickname nevertheless, like "Killer Assassin Angel" ou "Flaming Blaze" (step "a" can be used in here as well, for a combo effect); c) create a ridiculous variaton of a nickname that almost certainly is being used by other 300 forumers, like "***%Joe%***" or "RRRRRRRooonaldOOOO"; d) create an illegible nickname, such as “¤´¯`•»P®¥§¢¥|_|_@....”; e) create a regular nickname. This is a risky choice, because, although some IDIOTS do use non-idiotic nicknames, they usually compensate this lack of stupidity in other aspects. So be careful when choosing this option, because you'll be wasting a perfect chance of showing just how much of an IDIOT you trully are. Remember that you need to be as less creative as posible, otherwise you'll just look like someone pretending to be an IDIOT, and that's absurd, and isn't very nice. Second part of registering to the forum as an IDIOT is filling the other fields of the registration form. This is also optional, as most IDIOTS are too lazy to fill them in and some others don't even know that there are more fields to be filled when signing up. If you choose to fill in these fields, do that in an absolutely idiotic way. Put jokes that aren't funny in the personal fields, like "oops...I forgot" or "Gee, there sure are lots of fields to be filled", etc. If you want to use a signature, use the most idiotic one you can find/create. Well known quotes, like popular sayings from 1990s or the latest Transformer flick, are a good choice. Mind boggling cryptic messages to other users/friends/unknown cosmic entities are recommended, especially if you add smilies to it. Doing all of this at once is even better! The forum signature is the first place where IDIOTS reveal their personality, and your personality must be spectacularly idiotic. Step 2 - "HI, I'M AN IDIOT" This is an obligatory step, so pay a lot of attention. IDIOTS like to create MANY threads to introduce themselves to the community, so if you don't create at least one, you won't be a considered a complete IDIOT. "But many people create threads to introduce themselves and are most certainly not IDIOTS!", you might say. You are right, but all IDIOTS do that in style. A good way to start is creating the thread on the wrong place. Look for the sub-forum that has less to do with Welcoming Threads and set up your thread there. Soon, everybody will notice how idiotic you are, and, consequently, you'll be quickly accepted as part of the clan. But don't you think it's over yet, you still have the hard work of writing your first message. At this point it's important to notice that all IDIOTS hate to write, so you must do it in the crappiest way you can (cf. Step 3, ahead). Important: when normal people read an introductory thread, they are probably looking for information about the thread stater. And it's exactly because of this that you won't leave any personal information clear and accessible to them. I'll explain: When IDIOTS read an welcoming thread they don't give a rat's arse to whom you are, they just want to post "Welcome!!!!11111one1one11" or some other less imaginative variation of spam. As such, when an IDIOT creates this kind of thread, he will not talk about himself, as he just wants people posting "Welcome!!!!11111one1one11" on it. Talking about yourself isn't forbidden, but it would be too stupid, even for the most idiotic IDIOT. (I mean, you may take the risk, but the other IDIOTS can be jealous of your level of stupidity, which would make your acceptance in their group way harder). The best option is writing a simple idiotic post, following the specifications detailed on Step 3, occasionally throwing a bit of ipersonal information in the middle of the text. This way the other IDIOTS will quickly recognize you as one of them. STEP 3 - THE ART OF READING AND WRITING AS AN Idiot This is probably the hardest part of the process. As it was previously said, IDIOTS hate to write. Still, regardless of how much they hate it, they do it all the time. And seing as you are ready to become an IDIOT, mastering the art of writing like one is indispensable. Before anything else, you must understand that they don't just hate to write. IDIOTS detest reading just as well. This way, when posting, you must not care a single bit about what is being discussed in the thread. Don't waste yur precious time reading other users' posts, this isn't necessary for an IDIOT. "But if I don't read what the others have written, how can I partake in the discussion?" Ah, blissful naivite. Post anything you want. There are no rules regarding what you should and should not post when you are an IDIOT. Talk about your neighbor's dog with ringworms of the size of a rattlesnake, talk about the girl in your school whom you fell in love for, talk about your favourite Nu Metal band, whatever springs to your disfunctional mind! IDIOTS do talk about the thread's subject occasionally, so you must do it sometimes too. But when venturing into this rarest of activities, just read the thread's first post and nothing else. Post something vaguely related to what the OP (Original Poster) said and ignore everything the other posts say. This way the other IDIOTS will soon realise that you, just like them, don't have the mental capacity to follow a discussion of more than 2 messages, and will take you in their arms in no time. Even rarer are idiots that directly answer other user's posts. If you try to do that, act with extreme caution, because if you start to actively participate in those discussions, the other IDIOTS will start to think you are annoying and will consider you simply a normal, irritating person. Considering the perils of wandering into this seldom explored territory, here are some tips: - Never use quotes. It's simply the worst thing you can do. Your message will look horribly organized, and organization is something that doesn't exist in the IDIOTS' world. Instead, copy/paste the message which you'll reply to and post your answer right above it, preferentially not adding a line break between them. This way, identifying what's the original post and what's your reply will be almost impossible. - Don't say anything constructive. Reply to the message of your preference with a very bad taste joke or an useless comment. Make no sense whatsoever. Now that I've already explained what you should write, it's time to talk about HOW you should write your posts. To IDIOTS, "grammar" is just another word which they bear little to none consideration for. Therefore, disrespect it as much as you can, and remember that there are no exaggerations when you are an IDIOT. Type 'z' instead of 's' and vice-versa; use words that mean absolutely nothing in any variation of English; see "your" and "you're" / "were", "we're" as interchangeable; make each error count and the other IDIOTS will be impressed with your lack of commom sense. Equally important are mispelling errors. A true IDIOT must type as if his fingers were being controlled by a drunk puppeteer. And the most important: never, ever, proof-read your post. Naturally, this isn't enough for a true IDIOT. One of the biggest contributions of the Internet to humanity was that, based on it, IDIOTS were able to develop their own language. If you want to be respected as an IDIOT, it's essential that you have complete domain over their vocabulary. Just like anything else created by IDIOTS, this dialect is simple and irregular. The main rule is "there are no rules", bar some basic guidelines that should be followed at yur own will. Their language involves basically the free exchange of letters withing a phrase, sometimes with the objective of making the use of the "shift" key obsolete, as that is something too complex for IDIOTS (have you ever seen an idiot pushing more than 1 key at the same time?), and other keys, just for added idiocy. Below is an small dictionary of that language, with the phonetic representantion of the letter, and it's correct pronunciation. This alphabet also seems to be used by Chavs, who probably are the evolution of the Internet-confined specimen subject to our study. o --> u (it happens when the sound of the letter "o" is covered by the sound of the "u", or "l". Example: "Could" --> "cud"); e --> (it happens when the sound of the letter “e” isn't pronounced. Example: some --> sum, come --> well, you've got the jist of it ); er --> a (it happens when the combination of the letters "er" has the same sound of an "a" with an accent. Example: other --> "ova"); th --> v (it happens when the combination of the lettrs "th" has the same sound of a "v" with an accent. See example above) Punctuation must be carefully careless, if at all extant, but pay attention to the following patterns: - Firstly, completely forget about the standard punctuation method you learned at school. Pretend it doesn't exist. It's a mirage. It isn't there. - Exclamation and question marks should be used with extreme caution (many IDIOTS make questions without putting the question mark at the end of a sentence, since all the rest of the IDIOTS should know that it was a question). If you think that putting a question mark or exclamation mark is essencial, don't stop on the first one. Use about nine times more marks than what a normal person would. - Regarding the use of commas, use them sparely, and, just, in cases, where, they shouldn't be, used. - In IDIOT World, the semicolon only exists by accident. It's also common among IDIOTS the use of other idiotic resources of their language, such as writing a message with CAPS LOCK turned on, or putting the same word dozens of times in the same sentence. Again, there are no specific rules to regulate that, except the one that say "the more nonsensical, the better". Step 4 - SMILIES EVERYWHERE! IDIOTS love all kinds of smilies, so use them as much as possible. “But smilies, as the name itself says, are useful for transmiting emotions through the cold means of the Internet, even serving as a tool to intensify the emotional impact intendend by some messages, and that definitely isn't idiotic”, one could wisely point out. Yes, that is correct, but IDIOTS don't seem to know that. Therefore, you'll have to use smiles always in parts of the message where they don't mean anything, and always in stupid amounts. All forums have at least a standard set of smilies ready to use, and IDIOTS like to mix all of them in a way that makes no sense to regular users. However, you should not be limited to use the forum smilies. Idiots also like to create their own symbols: o__o _o/ (o_o// Something absurdly idiotic you could do is stretching them out, so they can use more screen space than necessary: XDDDDDDDDDDDD o________________o \\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\\o/////////////////////////////// etc. Stretch them beyond the limits of commom sense, preferentially distorting the page, and before you can even realise you'll be in the IDIOTS' Hall of Fame. Step 5 – ASKING FOR ATTENTION All IDIOTS seek attention at a pathological level. They are invariably spoiled and puerile beings that need to be the center of attention like a smoker needs nicotine. This means that every post of yours will be a desperate attempt of grabbing the eyes of normal human beings. Your attitude when posting must be focused on that, and there are some patterns of behavior that guarantee high levels of success: Before anything else, declare your immeasurable desire of making friends. Give all new forum members, on their respective introduction threads, a big WELCOME! Write down the MSN addys and ICQ numbers of everybody (you can tell this is up to date!). Send PM's saying “good morning” and/or “good evening” and/or “Hi, how are you” to everyone that's online when you enter the forum. When you finally get MSN/ICQ/Facebook contacts of a considerable amount of users, apply the technics described below (important: always focus on users of the opposite sex): - Declare bad luck in love This one is very popular. For some unknown reason, IDIOTS believe that looking pathetic and frustrated in love will help them score some points with the opposite sex. Go figure that out . Anyway, regardless of how old you actually are, act like a frustrated teenager that has just received his first "NO", and try to use that to initiate a relationship with someone from the forum, even if you have never seen or spoken to that person before. - Declare your ineptitude at making friends/having luck in love; Can you see that things are getting quite repetitive now? Well, actually, this technic should be used only after you realise the previous one was a total and uter failure. If you cannot make friends/start a relationship on the forum, make it look like you are so desperate that suicide is an option. Step 6 – LAUGHING: ALWAYS OR NEVER Basically, when it come to the matter of laughter, there are 2 types of IDIOTS: the fool-cheerful and the fool-arrogant. Before embarking on the trip to IDIOTSHIRE you must opt for one of these two approaches. Strangely, there aren't many reports of IDIOTS oscillating between these two variations of foolish behaviour. IDIOTS invariably belong to one of these groups, and never move from one group to another. In case you choose to act likethe fool-cheerful type, you must add virtual laughters to every single post you make, except in the ones where you forget about it (remember about the step about typing mistakes - never edit a post). A good solution to that is posting the same thing again, just adding the laughters ina new message. That is so idiotic that all the other IDIOTS will be amazed at how you've progressed and might pick you as their leader! Annoying laughters are recommended. If your arse isn't sore at the end of the day it's because you haven't laughted it off enough times. In case you choose to be a fool-arrogant, you must never demonstrate the slightest sense of humour. Your objective is to become the world's most boring person. Always look grumpy and try to pass along the image of someone with temperament issues. Complain all the time, about everything. And forget about Step 4. Emoticons usually represent happiness, and this kind of IDIOT will always pass the impression he's got the Statue of Liberty stuck up his arse. *There is a third type of IDIOT, that is the only known kind of the species that writes reasonably well, can follow a complete discussion, and even looks slightly intelligent. You must act with extreme caution if you choose to join this very secluded group, because the downside of writing, reading and understanding others is that all the characteristics commomly present in the ordinary IDIOT (arrogancy, selfishness, a bad temper, etc) are raised to the cube. Sincerely, there aren't many reasons to belong to this group of IDOTS, given that they are discriminated by both normal users and other IDIOTS. Step 7 - MODS: HATE THEM OR LOVE THEM Again, there aren't many choices. Idiots always think that moderators: a)are always right OR are always wrong. If you go by the ways of option a), never challenge a moderator or disagree with what he's posted. Accept everything they do without complaining, no matter how stupid their actions look. Praise them and encourage them, and always complain about the "idiots" that follow option . Make suggestions about possible improvements in the forum and report everyone who disrespects the rules (of course, IDIOTS usually disrespect them as well, what makes these complaints a bit hypocritical, but you're an IDIOT, so you don't care). Occasionally an IDIOTS becames a moderator, so keep trying and one day it could be you! In case you pick option , always complain about the mods, no matter how coherently the act. Complain all the time, acuse them of tyranny and favoritism. A recommended behavior is: as soon as a mod interferes with your participation in the forum (deleting a post, locking a thread, or even sending you a warning), hate him above everybody else. From that moment on, 75% of your posts will have the sole objective of defaming that moderator. Acuse them of despotism, make heated protests about how that moderator has no respect for your freedom of speech, etc. Sooner than you think, you'll receive your first temporary ban, a symbol of status among IDIOTS worldwide. Step 8 – NEVER UNDERSTAND, KEEP MAKING QUESTIONS IDIOTS never understand anything thta's said to them. If you want to be taken seriously in the IDIOTS' community, you must look extremely confused the entire time, making pointless questions about everything you interact with. Act like you have never heard of Google, and use the forum as your own private search engine. Do it this way: let's say that, in a thread about movies, an user has posted something about Altman. A true IDIOT wouldn't have a clue who the hell Altman is, and wouldn't use any search engine to find it out. Therefore, the most acceptable reaction from an IDIOT would be to post something like “Who's Altman????? o___O”, in the middle of the conversation. Please note that most IDIOTS never come back to read the answer – they don't care about it, they just want to make questions. The best moment to put that behavior in practice is when the discussion is active, and all the participantes are having a good time. This way the idiotic question becomes the central point of discussion, much to the annoyance of everyone involved, except the IDIOTS. Step 8,5 - NEVER USE THE HELP SECTION This step goes hand in hand with Step 8, and is related to one little, but important, thing. Most forums have a help section where new users have their questions answered by the most experienced forumers. No matter what happens, keep this on your mind: that thing is too ******* complicated and absolutely irrelevant to an IDIOTS. Instead of going to the Help Section, post your questions on the nearest thread, or, even better, open your own questions thread, as long as it is located anywhere but in the Help Section. Step 9 – SPAM, A LOT This was hinted at in all the previous step, but will be discussed in depth in this one, to give our guide a sense of closure (in case someone hasn't realised that spamming is all that an IDIOT does). That's the last thing you need to know before endeavoring into the world of a forum IDIOT: they like to spam. A lot. Therefore, let's put our hands to work! 1- Make a conversation out of an active thread In the event of an naïve user replying to a post of yours, any post, act like that person is a long-time friend , even if you don't know who they are. Ask them the first thing you can think of, and try to transform the discussion into your own private chatroom. Try doing it in an active thread: complete success will be reached once you make everybody quit that thread and restart the discussion elsewhere. 2- Post everywhere Try to post on ALL threads, in all the subsections of the forum. Even when you don't have anything useful to post - what will happen in 99% of the times. Bonus points if you can find an IDIOT friend and challenge him to see who manages to fill an entire page of "New Posts Search" with their name. 3- Start absurd amounts of threads Try to create as many threads as you can, using as little time possible. A good strategy is to keep a constant eye at the list of threads on the home page of the forum and create threads to discuss something that is already being discussed there, just to make a mod come and lock your thread, giving you the chance to apply the techniques described in Step 7. 4- Let everyone know that you're reading their posts Post useless comments about whatever you see on a given thread. Even when you have nothing to add to the debate, it's always a good thing to post the occasional “Oh really?” or an “I agree”. Add laughing smilies to anything that sounds slightly like a joke. And now you can say you are a certified* Forum IDIOT. Certification not included.

    Bundesliga Analysis and Ratings 2008/2009 After an exciting finale, Wolfsburg won the Bundesliga after a great run after the winter break. With a win over Stuttgart on the last turn, Bayern secured their second place and the 2nd Champions League spot, while the VfB players have to go through the CL qualification round. Hamburg just snapped the last UEFA League spot from Dortmund in the last minute, but with an irregular goal. High-flyers Hoffenheim, Schalke, Bremen and Leverkusen were the big disappointments this season, while Cottbus, Karlsruhe and Bielfeld are getting relegated. My predictions are mainly based on personal opinion, but, especially for the lower teams, my views are also influenced by various stat sites and match ratings given out by a highly rated football magazine, the kicker. Finale table: Top goal scorers: Top assists: Now, let's have a look at the clubs and their players, a short summary if neccessary and a rating prediction. All clubs are listed at the club they played last season, eventual moves are noted in the summaries. VfL Wolfsburg Only sitting mid-table before the winter break, Wolfsburg started a great run, especially their forward duo. BENAGLIO, Diego (25) - Gk - 89 => 89/90 Easily one of the best goalkeepers this year, very confident and calm, but still an authority. Still young and has been linked with a couple of major clubs. JENTZSCH, Simon (33) - Gk - 85 => 84/83 Started a promising career, but now even lost his contract at Wolfsburg. Not sure of his future LENZ, André (35) - Gk - 82 Retiring this season, still had a couple of short appearances to celebrate the end of his career HITZ, Marwin (21) - Gk - 74 2nd goalkeeper for the reserves team, can't see him breaking into Woflsburg's first squad ever though PLATINS, Patrick (26) - Gk - 74 => 74-76 Regular for the reserves, should be 2nd choice keeper next season after Lenz's retirement and Jentzsch's contract end SCHAFER, Marcel (24) - LB/LM - 88 => 89/90 Young, fast, good tackler, good passing. All you expect from a good wide back. Sure to rise, and has been called up to the NT recently RODRIGO ALVIM, Oliveira (25) - LB - 85 => 84 Arrived with high expectations, but hasn't played besides a few short appearances at the beginning of the season KARIMOV, Sergej (22) - LB - 80 Only one appearance for the first team, but a regular for the reserves ZACCARDO, Cristian (27) - RB/DM - 89 => 87 Actually signed as 1st choice right-back, he was put in the defensive midfield after some awful performances, but also failed to make an impact there RIETHER, Sascha (26) - RB/DM - 88 => 89/88 Native RB, but now used more offensively as a RM in a 4-4-2 diamond PEKÁRIK, Peter (22) - RB - 86 => 87/88 Signed after Zaccardo dissapointed in the first half the season, and has now cemented his place as starting RB. Should be rated higher than the Italian ALEX, Domingos (29) - RB - 80 => 78 Hasn't played one single game BARZAGLI, Andrea (28) - CB - 91 Didn't fulfill all expectations, but played well enough to keep his 91, IMO both Madlung and Simunek played equally well, but he was the one who played all games MADLUNG, Alexander (26) - CB - 88 Kinda rotating with Simunek, fair rating RICARDO COSTA, Miguel (28) - CB - 87 => 86/85 No idea how he managed to keep his rating last time, hasn't played for half a year SIMUNEK, Jan (22) - CB - 87 As mentioned above, playes semi-regularly, but not enough to rise REICHE, Daniel (21) - CB - 74 Only one short sub appearance at the beginning of the season, but a regular for the reserves. Not sure of his future potential DEJAGAH, Ashkan (22) - RM/AM - 87 => 87/86 Doesn't make it to the starting XI regularly, but always dangerous when coming from the bench. Only very small chance of a drop GENTNER, Christian (23) - CM/RM - 88 => 89/88 Regularly playing on the left flank in the 4-4-2 diamond, and playing rather well. Has recently made his debut for Germany, which increases the chances of an increase for him. HASEBE, Makoto (25) - CM/RM - 86 Still trying to find his place in the team, now sometimes used as a RB WOLZE, Kevin (19) - CM 74 JOSUE, Anunciado (29) - DM/CM - 91 => 91/92 Captain and key player for Wolfsburg, one of the main reasons for Wolfsburg great run, also playing regularly for Brazil. Slight chance of a rise SCHINDZIELORZ, Sebastian (30) - DM - 82 Only sub behind Josué, bot the occassional game might make him keep his rating MISIMOVIC, Zvjezdan (26) - AM - 90 => 91/90 Wolfsburg's offense has been stunning, without his assists I doubt that Grafite or Dzeko would make that many goals ADLUNG, Daniel (21) - Wing/AM - 83 => 83/82 Since his move he rarely plays for Wolfsburg, but is quite talented and member of the U-21 Germany NT. Despite his talent, his lack of 2st team game could mean a drop HILL, Kamani (23) - Wing/Fwd - 76 Moves to Portual after the end of the season GRAFITE, Edinaldo (30) - Fwd - 89 => 90/91 I was surprised he didn't rise in the last changes, but this time he fully deserves it, he has proven that he's a great goal scorer but also a team player. Will probably stay at Wolfsburg, and personally, I rate him a tad higher than Dzeko. OKUBO, Yoo (26) - Fwd/AM - 86 3rd choice striker behind Dzeko/Grafite, but still manages to play from time to time DZEKO, Edin (23) - CF - 89 => 90/91 Is playing extraordinary well since the winter break and scoring goals like crazy. Likely to move in the summer. But in all honesty, so far he's had 1 1/2 average season and and only 4 months, in which he has been great. I hope and think he has the potential to estamblish himself as one of the best strikers in the world, but I've seen other great talents who never made their break-through. CAIUBY, Francisco (20) - CF - 82 Occassional sub appearance, nothing special since his strange debut ESSWEIN, Alexander (19) - CF - 72 => 74 Had 4 short appearances as a sub, might maybe rise a bit. Still playing regularly for the reserves Bayern München After some heavy investments last season, Bayern thought their current squad would be good enough to easily win the Bundesliga and get very far in the Champions League. However, the retirements of Sagnol and Kahn left a big gap, as their replacements couldn't fulfill all expectations. This season, it looks like Bayern will again invest heavily to strengthen their squad. RENSING, Michael (25) - Gk - 89 => 88/87 Everyone put high hopes into him after he took over the no.1 from Kahn, but he disappointed throughout the whole season. A couple of weeks before the end of the season, he lost his place to Jörg Butt. BUTT, Hans-Jörg (35) - Gk - 85 => 86/87 Actually brought in as 2nd choice keeper, he took over the starting spot after some good performances for the reserves. IMO a better keeper than Rensing (mainly due to experience), although the next changes might not reflect that (yet) KRAFT, Thomas (20) - Gk - 77 Regularly playing for the reserves, was sitting on the bench when Rensing was injured. LAHM, Philipp (25) - LB/RB - 25 - 93 => 93/94 I must admit, the chance of a 94 is very slim, but IMO he is the best left-back in the world, and at least just as good in his native RB spot. Has been linked with Barca several times, but as Bayern reached the Champions League, he's likely to stay now. STIERLE, Oliver (25) - LB/LM - 78 => 78-76 Just brought in as a squad player for the reserves team, hasn't even played in more than a half of the reserves games LELL, Christian (24) - RB - 89 => 88/87/89 If SM base their ratings on performance rather than stats, he has to drop. Weak in defense, even weaker when trying to go forward. IMO not good enough for the Bundesliga, let alone Bayern. However, the fact that he played might avoid a drop. ODDO, Massimo (32) - RB - 90 => 89 Brought in as a replacement for Sagnol, he started off rather good, but faded away towards the end of the season, and was also injured quite often LUCIO, Ferreira (31) - CB - 94 => 94/93 Last season, Bayern's defense seemed nearly unbeatable, but this season Lucio and Demichelis became very error-prone (again), maybe because they now didn't have to fear Kahn's rage. Still a Brazil international, and Bayern didn't do too bad, so still a good chance of staying. DEMICHELIS, Martin (28) - CB/DM - 93 => 93/92 Very similar to Lucio, but replace Brazil with Argentina VAN BUYTEN, Daniel (31) - CB - 90 Already dropped last time, didn't play too often, but when he did he wasn't much worse than Lucio or Demichelis BRENO, Vinicius (19) - CB - 87 => 87/86 Hyped up as one if the biggest talents, but being only 4th choice, he didn't have much chance to prove himself, and when he played, he usually was awful. SCHWEINSTEIGER, Bastian (24) - RM/LM - 92 => 92/91 Started great into the season, but didn't keep up the good performances towards the end of the season. Good performances for Germany will probably still keep him at 92. ALTINTOP, Hamit (26) - RM/RB - 90 => 90/89 Injured at the first half of the season, but then got more playing time towards the end of the season. The tactics with him on the right, Schweini on the left and Ribery as an attacking mid worked rather well, but wasn't the best of solutions either. ZE ROBERTO, Silva (34) - CM/LM - 92 Despite his age, still one of the better performers for Bayern this season. Was used as LB, DM, left Winger and even as an attacking mid, and always played rather well. However, he'll be leaving Bayern as he was only offered a 1 year contract despite wanting a 2 year contract VAN BOMMEL, Mark (32) - CM/DM - 92 => 92/91 Was supposed to play a leader role for Bayern, but due to some poor performances, he was even dropped to the bench sometimes despite being captain. Don't think he has much of a future at Bayern either with Tymo coming. BOROWSKI, Tim (29) - CM/LM - 90 => 89/90 Was an important player for Bremen, but only a squad player for Bayern. Due to the lack of playing time I wouldn't be surprised to see him drop. FÜRSTNER, Stephan (21) - CM/DM - 77 Important player for the reserves, will move to Greuter Fürth, where he might strt more often. If want to take a gamble, grab him. OTTL, Andreas (24) - DM - 88 => 88/87 Only 2nd or 3rd choice for Bayern, but still played rather often. However, his performances have usually been below Bayern standards. EKICI, Mehmet (19) - DM - 77 SOSA, José (23) - AM/RM - 88 Almost forgotten, he showed some good games towards the end of the season, however, not enough to warrant a rise. RIBERY, Franck (26) - Wing/AM - 95 Still the best Bundesliga player, his pace, skills and now even finishing is close to noone else in the league, however to rise further he'd probably need to move, but it looks like Bayern want to keep him MULLER, Thomas (19) - Wing/AM - 80 A very talented player IMO, but only played very few games as a sub, so not even his Champions League goal will earn him a rise IMO. PODOLSKI, Lukas (24) - Fwd/Wing - 91 => 91/90 I was very surprised he didn't drop last time, when he usually only was 4th choice behind Donovan. Obviously his NT performances have kept him at 91, but I don't think he can keep that rating at a club like Köln for long. KLOSE, Miroslav (30) - Fwd - 93 Picked up a rather bad injury at the end of the season, and without him the Bayern offense wasn't the same. If he can pick up his form of 2008 again for the whole next season and the WC 2010, he could maybe earn his 94 back somewhen. He's become a much more complete player TONI, Luca (32) - CF - 94 => 94/93 Didn't play as well as last season and missed quite a bunch of easy chances. He needs a 2nd striker next to him, he looked rather helpless when he was played up front alone. Not sure of his future at Bayern, might move after the signing of Gomez YILMAZ, Deniz (21) - CF - 77 VfB Stuttgart A similar season to Wolfsburg, they started off slowly, but when some of their top players like Gomez or Hitzelsperger found back to their best form, they managed to finish 3rd. LEHMANN, Jens (39) - Gk - 90 Despite his age, still one of the best keepers in the Bundesliga. Stated that he'll play for another year if Stuttgart reach the Champions League, which looks likely. ULREICH, Sven (20) - Gk - 82 => 82/81/80 Lost his place as 2nd goalkeeper to Stolz, but is playing for the reserves team in the 3rd division. STOLZ, Alexander (25) - Gk - 77 => 78/79/80 2nd choice behind Lehmann, was sitting on the bench though all the time as Lehmann played every single minute in league & cup. BOKA, Arthur (26) - LB/LM - 88 => 88/87 Has rarely played since the winter break after Magnin's return from injury. Hasn't really played welll before that though anyway. MAGNIN, Ludovic (30) - LB - 88 Has always played since returning from injury, but he's far from his form from 2 years ago, when he was a key part of Stuttgart winning the league OSORIO, Ricardo (28) - RB/CB - 89 => 88/87 After a disappointing performance, he's lost his place to Träsch DELPIERRE, Mathieu (28) - CB - 90 => 90/89 Hasn't really had his best season, but with Stuttgart finishing 3rd, SM might still keep him at 90 TASCI, Serdar (22) - CB/RB - 90 Even though he missed the last couple of games of the season due to an injury, I can't see a reason to drop him. Probably Stuttgart's best defender in all games he played, and has a good chance of playing for Germany in the WC 2010. A defender I rate very highly, as he's not only a good defender, but also a good passer and good in opening the game. BOULAHROUZ, Khalid (27) - CB/RB - 89 Hasn't really convinced in his first season and was occassionally only sitting on the bench, but his number of games should keep him on 89. NIEDERMEIER, Georg (23) - CB - 80 => 81/82 Hasn't established himself in the starting XI yet, but Stuttgart are clso to signing him permanently, and I'm sure he'll be regular starter alongside Tasci in 1-2 years. Another Stuttgart defender I rate quite highly. PISCHORN, Marco (23) - CB/RB - 77 OPOKU-KARIKARI, Jeremy (21) - CB/RB - 77 Both haven't played for the first team this season, but are regulars for the reserves. TRASCH, Christian (21) - Def/DM - 83 => 86/87 Usually playing wherever he was needed in the first half of the season, he established himself as the starting RB at the end of the season, which also earned him a short appearance for Germany against UAE, where he already gave his first assist. Might change to RB/DM, RB/LB or even RB alone, but is still capable of playing anywhere in the defense, HILBERT, Roberto (24) - RM/CM - 89 Used to be a very important player for Stuttgart, but has faded a bit away. Still playing regularly, should keep him at 89 HITZLSPERGER, Thomas (27) - CM/LM - 91 Captain of Stuttgart, regularly playing for Germany. It's quite obvious that he used to play in England. Hasn't played as a LM ever in Germany afaik, so dhould probably change to CM/DM KHEDIRA, Sami (22) - CM/DM - 89 => 89/90 To be honest, the chance of reaching 90 is not that good, but has shown very good performances throughout the whole season. A regular for Germany's youth teams, just a matter of time until he gets his first senior call-up. BASTURK, Yildiray (30) - CM/AM - 87 => 86 Has been injured for almost the whole season, and looks likely to move in the summer ELSON, Falcão (27) - CM/AM - 84 Not the most impressive player, but he does his job when he comes off the bench. FUNK, Patrick (19) - CM - 77 MANDJECK, Georges (20) - DM - 77 Both young and talented, but not good enough for the first team yet. Both are regulars for the reserves. LANIG, Martin (24) - AM/Wing - 86 SIMAK, Jan (30) - AM/Wing - 86 Since Stuttgart don't have a native LM, both are kinda forced to play on the left side, and you can see that this is not the position they are best in. GEBHART, Timo (20) - AM/Fwd - 84 => 86/87 Signed from 1860 in the winter break, he established himself in the first team and was playing pretty well. RUDY, Sebastian (19) - Wing/AM - 78 Had two short sub appearances at the beginning of the season, but hasn't played since. Regular for the reserves. CACAU, Jeronimo (28) - Fwd - 89 => 89/90 Was forming a great partnership with Gomez up front, and his recent Germany caps might give him a small chance of an increase. MARICA, Ciprian (23) - Fwd - 88 => 88/87 A disappointing signing, hasn't even shown glimpses of his praised talent. LJUBOJA, Danijel (30) - Fwd - 85 => 83/84 Problem child of Stuttgart, looks unhappy and is likely to move RAHN, Johannes (23) - Fwd - 78 SCHIPPLOCK, Sven CFMS Rechts 77 20 Regulars for the reserves SCHIEBER, Julian (20) - Fwd - 78 => 81/82 Has established himself as 3rd/4th choice striker and was regularly coming off the bench. Might get more chances next season after Gomez' departure. GOMEZ, Mario (23) - CF - 93 Many were expecting a drop in the last changes, but in the 2nd half of the season he proved why he is a 93. Also managed to score for the NT as well again after 14 months without a goal. I'm hoping he doesn't start as slow as this season at Bayern, as the Bayern bosses might not be as patient with him as in Stuttgart. Hertha BSC Berlin A constantly good performance by Hertha, who always seemed to win despite being the less active team, finally brought them to a 4th place and the sure qualification for the Europe League. Maybe a bit more would have been possible if they weren't struggling towards the end of the season. DROBNY, Jaroslav (29) - Gk - 88 => 88/89 One of the best Bundesliga keepers this season, however Hertha's bad form in the last few weeks might cost him an increase. FIEDLER, Christian (34) - Gk - 84 => 84/83 GANG, Christopher (21) - Gk - 75 BURCHERT, Sascha (19) - Gk - 72 There's not much to say about the goalkeepers, none of them really played. CUFRE, Leandro (31) - LB/RB - 87 Signed in the winter break, but had to fight with with injuries for most of the season. STEIN, Marc (23) - LB/RB - 87 => 87/88 The only wide back who regularly played, but his performances have mostly been below par. Still, his number of games leaves him a small chance of an increase. BABIC, Marko (28) - LB/LM - 86 => 85 Also signed in the winter break, but a big disappointment LUCIO, Carlos (29) - LB/LM - 86 => 85 Constantly fighting with injuries, made 2 short sub appearances st the end of the season. RADJABALI-FARDI, Shervin (18) - LB 75 A very talented player, I expect to break him into the first XI within 2 years. CHAHED, Sofian (26) - RB/RM - 86 => 85 Also injured for most of the season, will leave Hertha. Not sure where he goes FRIEDRICH, Arne (30) - CB/RB - 91 The main reason for Hertha's success was a very strong central defense. One of the best centre back pairs in the Bundesliga together with Simunic. SIMUNIC, Josip (31) - CB - 90 => 90/91 Formed a great partnership with Friedrich, and can't see a reason why he should be rated below him. But his age might stop SM from rising him. VON BERGEN, Steve (25) - CB - 87 3rd choice CB behind Friedrich and Simunic, and was a good replacement when Friedrich was injured at the end of the season. KAKA, Claudiano (28) - CB - 86 => 86/85 Now only 4th choice, has rarely played. RODNEI, Francisco (23) - CB/LB - (80) => 82 Had a couple of appearances when many of Hertha's defenders were injured, enough for a small rise. BANECKI, Francis (23) - CB - 76 Only playing for the reserves as far as I'm aware. TRAORE, Ibrahima (21) - LM/Wing - 76 RIEDEL, Florian (19) - RM - 74 Both are regulars for the reserves team, and might get some more first team action next season. CICERO, Santos (24) - CM/LM - 88 => 88/89 A player who really surprised me this season, played nearly every game and usually played very well. DARDAI, Pál (33) - CM/DM - 88 Despite his age, he fully deserved the rise last time. Not enough to warrant another increase though. KACAR, Gojko (22) - DM/CM - 88 Similar to Dardai, he rose by 2 in the last changes, even though I think that he still has quite a bit to learn. LUSTENBERGER, Fabian (21) - DM/CM - 85 => 84 Hasn't played since the winter break, mainly because of an injury. Might be able to claim a starting spot back next season HARTMANN, Lennart (18) - DM/CM - 75 ARGUEZ, Bryan (20) - DM/CM - 73 BIGALKE, Sascha (19) - AM/Wing - 75 All 3 are still young and regularly playing for the reserves. The brightest future of them probably has Bigalke, who absolutely convinced me when I saw him play a couple of times for the Germany youth squads. He's very fast and strong at dribbling, but also has an eye for his fellow players. HOENESS, Sebastien (27) - AM/LM - 73 Tbh, I haven't heard if him until now. Apparently the son of Dieter Hoeneß, and a squad player for the reserves EBERT, Patrick (22) - Wing/AM - 87 => 88/87 A good player, but a bit inconsistent. Also said to be a bit of a bad boy off the pitch NICU, Maximilian (26) - Wing - 87 => 88 Regularly showed good performances for Hertha, which earned him a call-up for Romania. He would also be eligable for the German team, but he decieded to play for Romania PISZCZEK, Lukasz (24) - Wing/Fwd - 85 Played in case Nicu or Ebert were injured/suspended. Did an ok job, but nothing to warrant an an increase RAFFAEL, de Araujo (24) - Fwd/AM - 88 => 88/89 One of the most regular players for Hertha, however his performances haven't really impressed me. Still a 50/50 chance of an increase due to his playing time and importance for the team DOMOVCHIYSKI, Valeri (23) - Fwd/AM - 86 Was subbed in 25 (!) times this season, never could esamblish himself as a starter. Interesting to see what will hapen to now that both Voronin and Pantelic are likely to leave VORONIN, Andreij (29) - Fwd/AM - 89 Had a great start, but didn't keep up his good performances until the end of the season. As Hertha won't play in the CL, they probably can't afford the transfer fee for Voronin. CHERMITI, Mohamed (21) - Fwd - 85 Similar to Domovchiyski, he only occassionaly came on as a sub. PANTELIC, Marko (30) - CF - 90 Already dropped as this season wasn't up the his performances he showed previously. Managed to get a bit more playing time towards the end of the season. Obviously he didn't get along too well with Voronin, as well on and off the pitch, Is likely to leave. Hamburger SV One month ago, it seemed possible to be one of the most successful season for Hamburg in recent years, as they still had the possibility to win the German cup, the UEFA-Cup and to finish in the top3 of the Bundesliga, but a mixture of bad luck and bad form almost cost them everything. Only an (irregular) last minute goal from Trochowski brought them into international competitions. ROST, Frank (35) - Gk - 90 Had a good season, tbh I was a bit surprised when he dropped last time. Will most likely stay. SINOUH, Khalid (34) - Gk - 82 WOLF, Raphael (20) - Gk - 76 HESL, Wolfgang (23) - Gk - 75 As with most reserve keepers, I don't know too much about them. None of them have played for the first team, and they were rotating in the reserves squad. JANSEN, Marcell (23) - LB/LM - 90 The drop last time was justified, but he has now established himself at Hamburg. I'm pretty confident that he can regain a better rating in the nearer future. Might get a positional change to LM/LB ATOUBA, Thimothée (27) - LB - 87 => 86 Was badly injured for most of the season. His contract expired, not sure where he'll go to now AOGO, Dennis (22) - LB/DM - 86 => 87 Has played in most of the games, Should continue to get regular appearances next season. BOATENG, Jérôme (20) - RB/LB - 87 Has played around as much as Aogo, but didn't keep up his form until the end of the season, would still ber very surprised of he drops though, a very talented player. Could change to Def, plays CB for the Germany youth squads and also did a couple of times for Hamburg this season, and is only used by Hamburg as a wide back. SCHMIDT, Volker (30) - RB - 77 => 76/75/77 MATHIJSEN, Joris (29) - CB - 90 The most constant player in Hamburg's defense. When fit, he was an absolute leader. ALEX SILVA, Sandro (24) - CB/DM - 89 => 88 A huge disappointment. Arrived with high expections, but couldn't esablish himself in the defense. Had to play as a DM most of the time, and it was quite obvious he didn't feel too well there REINHARDT, Bastian (33) - CB - 89 => 88 Has been been badly injured, has the skill and experience though to get back to 89 when he's fit. GRAVGAARD, Michael (31) - CB - 88 Brought in as a replacement for the injured Reinhardt, he struggled to find his place first after a few shaky performances. Has played better towards the end of the season. DEMEL, Guy (27) - Def/DM - 88 The very versatile defender and midfielder hasn't really played great, but he did play quite often. Can play anywhere across the back four and in the defensive midfield. NDJENG, Marcel (27) - RM/RB - 85 => 84/85 Rarely played, and when I saw him play he didn't do anything special. JAROLIM, David (30) - CM/DM - 91 Probably Hamburg's most important player, even more than for example Olic or Mathijsen. I don't rate him too highly, he's a rather unfair player IMO, and often gets away with his bad temper. BENJAMIN, Collin (30) - DM/Def - 87 ANother very versatile player from Hamburg but hasn't really played well enough to warrant a rise TAVARES, Mickaël (26) - DM - 86 => 86/87 A very positive surprise IMO, he did play rather well towards the end of the season. Not sure if it's already enough to warant an increase yet. RINCON, Tomás (21) - DM - 84 => 84/83 Rarely played, and tbh, I didn't even notice him once although I'm pretty sure I've seen the games he was in. Still young, so might break through soon though. KUNERT, Timo (22) - DM - 75 TROCHOWSKI, Piotr (25) - Wing/AM - 91 A regular player for Hamburg and now also for the NT. His last minute goal (even though it was offside) brought Hamburg into the UEFA Cup. STREIT, Albert (29) - Wing/AM - 88 => 88/87 Was a key player at Frankfurt 2 years ago, but couldn't establish himself neither at Schalke nor in Hamburg. Was only loaned out, and Hamburg will probably send him back. CASTELEN, Romeo (26) - Wing/Fwd - 87 => 86 Constantly injured. PITROIPA, Jonathan (23) - Wing/AM - 86 => 87/88 Often an important player for Hamburg, really impressed with his pace, but his finishing is ok at best. Did occasionally play as a second striker due to injury problems in Hamburg offense. SAKA, Kosi (23) - Wing - 77 PETRIC, Mladen (28) - Fwd - 91 A shame Dortmund traded him for Zidan, a very good striker with good finishing and heading abilities, but also fast. Despite an injury towards the end of the season I don't see a reason why he should drop. GUERRERO, Paolo (25) - Fwd - 89 => 89/90 Finally had his breakthrough this season IMO. Got regular playing time, and showed some good performances. However, SM might want to wait until next season to increase him, when he shows some consistency. CHOUPO-MOTING, Eric (20) - Fwd - 80 One of the most talented young strikers in Germany IMO, but not enough to play for the first team yet. Still a player who should be kept. TORUN, Tunay (19) - Fwd - 75 OLUMIDE, Joseph (21) - Fwd/AM - 74 Torun had 3 short sub apps at the beginning of the season, haven't seen him play then though. Never heard of Olumide tbh. OLIC, Ivica (29) - Fwd/Wing - 91 Had a good season with Hamburg, but I'm not sure if a move to Bayern was the right choice for him, as I don't think he can keep Klose/Gomez/Toni out of the squad. CHRISANTUS, Macauley (18) - Fwd - 77 The 18yo forward won the U17-WC with Nigeria and was top scorer. Is loaned to Karlsruhe next season, I think he can get some playing time there and gain experience. Borussia Dortmund A very positive surprise this season was Dortmund under their new manager Klopp, who after financial struggles in the recent years now seem to be back on track. A team full of promising youngsters like Subotic, Sahin and Hummels, which only were hindered from an international spot by an irregular goal from Hamburg, but to be fair they could have sealed it themselves with a win against Gladbach on the last turn. WEIDENFELLER, Roman (28) - Gk - 88 => 88/89 Had a good season, however he'a still a bit too inconsistent. A very underrated keeper IMO. ZIEGLER, Marc (32) - Gk - 85 => 84/85 Had 3 games at the beginning of the season, but after Weidenfeller's return from injury, has hasn't had much chance to prove. 84/85 is an appropiate rating for one of the best 2nd choice goalkeepers in the Bundesliga. HOTTECKE, Marcel (22) - Gk - 77 Had a bad injury, but is now playing regularly for Dortmund's reserves again. A good and talented, can't see him breaking through at Dortmund though. DEDE, Leonardo (31) - LB/LM - 88 Had a bad injury, but since his return Dortmund have been on stunning form. A great leader, good at defending, but also good at going forward. A very important player. LEE, Young-pyo (32) - LB/RB - 87 Played regularly when the other wide backs were missing, but despite good performances, he's only 3rd choice behind Owomoyela and Dede. However, I'm sure he's an adequate replacement on both flanks. A drop would be harsh SCHMELZER, Marcel (21) - LB - 83 Hasn't played as much as before his increase, mainly because all first team players were fit again. Still a talented player, and can replace the other ageing wide-backs which aren't the youngest anymore. VRZOGIC, David (19) - LB - 75 Hasn't played in the first team this season, but a regular at the reserves. OWOMOYELA, Patrick (29) - RB/RM - 86 => 87/88 Almost back to his best days, has been on good form, both defensively but also going forward and making crosses. If he stays injury-free, he might rise further next season. SUBOTIC, Neven (20) - CB - 87 => 88/87 Had a phenomenal start to the season, with quite a few goals as well. Has steadily become better under Klopp, another rise this time should be possible. FELIPE SANTANA, Augusto (23) - CB - 86 => 87 Already considered as a flop, he showed all his talent when he replaced the injured Hummels after the winter break. Bit of a luxury problem here, Subotiv, Hummels and Santana are all young and talented, I think he's most likely to sit on the bench with Hummels and Subotic being starters next seasons HUMMELS, Mats (20) - CB - 86 Only loaned out from Bayern at the beginning, he was then permanently signed. One of the most talented German centre backs, but a bit injury-prone. Missed most of the second half of the season due to an injury. If he stays injury-free and Dortmund are kepping up their good form next season, I wouldn't rule out a rise to the 90's in the nearer future HUNEMEIER, Uwe (23) - CB - 77 => 78 A regular for Dortmund's reserves, and had a short appearance in the last game of the season when Subotic was suspended. Can't see him breaking through at Dortmund though. BLASZCZYKOWSKI, Jakub (23) - RM/Wing - 88 => 88/89 Always a dangerous player, very fast and strong at dribbling. If he can improve his finishing, he can even go higher. KRINGE, Florian (26) - RM/LM - 88 => 87/88 Hasn't had his best season, and only came off the bench in the last games of the season. TINGA, Paulo (31) - CM/RM - 88 => 87/88 After Kehl's return and Sahin's great form, he has lost his regular place. Still shows glimpses of his talent, but a drop wouldn't surprise me. KEHL, Sebastian (29) - CM/DM - 87 => 88 Probably the most important player at Dortmund, when he's fit he's a great player and leader. A hard worker defensively, and dangerous when going forward. Has scored quite a few important goals for Dortmund. NURI, Sahin - (20) - CM - 87 => 87/88 After his return from his loan spell at Feyenoord, he looked like he'd only be a bench warmer (again), but towards the end of the season he has proven that he is one of the most talented footballers of his age. Has played on the left side in a 4-4-2 diamond, but isn't really a flank player. Might change to CM/LM. BOATENG, Kevin-Prince (22) - CM/DM - 85 The 'bad boy' in Dortmund, if he can get his disciplinary problems and his bad temper under control, he could become a good footballer. But he's often ruined good performances with bad fouls or stupid mistakes. VRANCIC, Damir (23) - CM - 78 NJAMBE, Franck (21) - DM/CB - 75 Both are regulars for the reserves, but unless Dortmund are really unlucky with injuries, I can't see them playing for the first team. HAJNAL, Tamás (28) - AM - 89 A great transfer from Dortmund, he has brought life into Dortmund's offense. However, due to the lack of international football, I can't see him rising to 90 (yet), maybe next season. ALEKSANDROV, Mihail (19) - AM/Wing - 74 A very, very talented player, I'm sure he'll brake into Dortmund's first team within 2 years or so. TYRALA, Sebastian (21) - Wing/Fwd - 79 => 78 Hasn't played for the first team this season due to injuries. FREI, Alexander (29) - Fwd - 90 Top scorer for Dortmund, and IMO the only player who is worthy of a 90 atm. ZIDAN, Mohammed (27) - Fwd/AM - 88 => 87/88 Supposed to play algonside Frei, he lost his place to Nelson Valdez at the end of the season. Not sure if it's already enough to drop him, but it wouldn't surprise me. VALDEZ, Nelson (25) - Fwd - 87 => 87/88 Had his best season at Dortmund this year, but is still giving away far too many chances. Has been named has as the most improved player since last season by SportBILD, one of the biggest football newspapers in Germany SADRIJAJ, Bajram (22) - Fwd/AM - 74 KULLMANN, Christopher (22) - CF - 74 Only squad players for Dortmund, when all forwards remain fit, I don't think any of them has much of a chance to play. TSG 1899 Hoffenheim The high-flyers from the first half of the season struggled after the winter break, when many of their most important players picked up long-time injuries or had to fight with disciplanary problems. Still, 7th is a good finish for a Bundesliga newcomer, and if their first team stays fit and they add abit more depth to the squad, they could finish even better next season. HILDEBRAND, Timo (30) - Gk - 88 When he came in the winter transfer window, he was expected to strengthen Hoffenheim's only real weakness, the defense. However, due to a lot of minor injuries and a lack of form, probably because of the missing match experience, he couldn't fulfill the high hopes. Towards the end of the season, he showed why he once was one of most highly-rated keepers in Germany, and that should make him stay. HAAS, Daniel (25) - Gk - 86 The actual no.1 at Hoffenheim, he missed the first half of the season because of an injury, and after the winter break Hildebrand was signed. Did a good job though when he played. OZCAN, Ramazan (24) - Gk - 85 => 84/83 Was a regular in the first half of the season, but is now only 3rd choice, and a 3rd choice keeper can't be rated 85 IMO. Will slowly drop further unless he moves. IBERTSBERGER, Andreas (26) - LB/RB - 86 => 86/85 Missed most of the games after the winter break due to an injury, but hasn't really convinvced when he played either. With the signing og Eichner he might just be sitting on the bench next season. FABRÍCIO, Silva Dornellas (19) - LB/CB - 80 => 81/80 A player who didn't really impress me, but he got a few more appearances after he was added. He's still young, and maybe he can develop well if he gets loaned out to another club. BECK, Andreas (22) - RB - 88 => 88/89 The only player in Hoffenheim besides Ba who has a chance to rise to 89 IMO, he hasn't really kept of the form of the first half of the season, but he was called up the German senior NT a couple of times, which gives him a small chance of an increase. JANKER, Christoph (24) - CB/RB - 83 => 85/84 A very versatile defender, played LB most of the time after Ibertsperger's injury. Should change to Def, as he can play anywhere in the back 4. Will move to Hertha this summer. COMPPER, Marvin (23) - CB/LB - 87 Started off with good performances, but since his Germany cap, he has faded away a bit. but tbh, most of Hoffenheim did. Might rise further if he gets back to his late 2008 form. JAISSLE, Matthias (21) - CB/LB - 86 => 85 One of the long-time injured players at Hoffenheim. If he returns from injury and can pick up his form again, he'll probably rise again. NILSSON, Per (26) - CB/DM - 85 => 86/85 Replaced the injured Jaissle, but performance-wise, he couldn't convince. Still, the number of games might give him an increase. WEIS, Tobias (23) - RM/CM - 87 => 87/88 Tbh, the chance of 88 is very small IMO, his performances for Hoffenheim haven't been as good as at the beginning, but he recently got his first appearance for Germany, where he didn't play too bad. KELLER, Matthias (34) - RM - 76 SALIHOVIC, Sejad (24) - CM/LM - 88 Like most of the Hoffenheim team, he couldn't keep up his performance from the first half of the season. Still very dangerous from set-pieces though. TEBER, Selim (28) - CM/RM - 84 => 86 Only a sub at the beginning of the season, but was captain for the mist games after the winter break. Missed the last games due to an injury, and will leave Hoffenheim in the summer. LUIZ GUSTAVO, Dias (21) - DM/CM - 87 Another undisciplined player. If he could calm down a bit more and play fairer, I wouldn't have ruled out an increase, but for now, he's probably still too unexperienced. VORSAH, Isaac (20) - DM/CB - 83 => 85 Became his chances when many of Hoffenheim's first XI were missing, but IMO he didn't use them. Looked shaky as CB and unspectacular as DM. Should increase a bit for the number of games he played. CARLOS EDUARDO, Marques (21) - AM/LM - 88 Another player who's still too aggressive on the pitch sometimes, if he calms down a bit, his performances could easily earn him a 90 within 2 or so seasons, granted Hoffenheim do well. OBASI, Chinedu (23) - Fwd/Wing - 87 Played regularly towards the end of the season, but he's nowhere near the level of his attacking collegues. WELLINGTON, Luis (21) - Fwd - 83 => 83/84 Picked up a bit more playing towards the end of the season, but still couldn't establish himself in the starting XI despite many injuries. HERDLING, Kai (24) - Fwd - 75 Signed in the winter, but couldn't make any impact in the first team. BA, Demba (24) - CF - 88 => 88/89 As mentioned earlier, he's the only player in Hoffenheim besides Beck who might deserve an increase to 89. One of the few players who didn't dip in form too much. Has been linked with Stuttgart after Gomez' departure, but Hoffenheim probably won't let him leave. SANOGO, Boubacar (26) - CF - 88 => 87 On loan from Bremen, but he was nowhere near being a replacement for Ibisevic. IBISEVIC, Vedad (24) - CF - 88 => 88/87 Probably the unluckiest player in the Bundesliga. Was having a sensational season, when a bad injury in a friendly cost him the rest of the season. Based on that, SM might drop him. It will be interesting to see he regains his form after his injury, if he does, he could be one of the first players in Hoffenheim to reach 90. TERRAZZINO, Marco (18) - CF - 75 => 77/78 Picked up another couple of minutes after his debute which got him added, but hasn't really shown all his talent yet. FC Schalke 04 One of the biggest disappontments this season. Solid at the back as usual, but a weak offense hindered a better finish. NEUER, Manuel (23) - Gk - 90 => 90/91 As mentioned above, Schalke has the best defensive record this season. One of the main reasons is Neuer, an always reliable keeper, and the last one to enter the fight for the German No.1 after Enke, Adler and Wiese. SCHOBER, Matthias (33) - Gk - 85 Solid whenever needed. FAHRMANN, Ralf (20) - Gk - 80 A very talented goalkeeper, who'll move to Frankfurt. If he manages to get a starting spot there, which I wouldn't rule out, he can reach 86/87+ next season. PANDER, Christian (25) - LB/LM - 88 One of the best left-foots in the Bundesliga. Missed a couple of games, but when he played he usually did well. Always dangerous on set-pieces. RAFINHA, Marcio (23) - RB - 90 One player that I find totally overrated and overhyped, he's a good defender, but nowhere near world class. BORDON, Marcelo (33) - CB - 91 I found it harsh he dropped last time, but then again he hasn't really been good enough to earn his 92 back this time. Was injured at the end of the season, and there are constant rumours that he'll leave in the summer. KRSTAJIC, Mladen (35) - CB - 88 If Bordon wasn't injured, it would have been a tough fight for the 2nd CB spot between him and Höwedes. A solid player, but will leave after this season. HOWEDES, Benedikt (21) - CB - 86 => 87 One of the most talented German defenders, should become a regular next season. ZAMBRANO, Carlos (19) - CB - 80 Hasn't played for Schalke, but already picked up games for the Peruvian NT. WESTERMANN, Heiko (25) - Def/DM - 91 Had a great start to the season, which earned him quite a few appearances for the NT. IMO he's playing best in the defense, but is often used as a DM or CM at Schalke, which could mean a positional change to DM/Def. KOBIASHVILI, Levan (31) - LM/LB - 88 Either playing in midfield or at LB when Pander was missing, solid performances, but nothing special. JONES, Jermaine (27) - CM/DM - 89 Has shown ascending form, if he keeps it up he might have a chance to get into the German NT any maybe get to 90 then. ENGELAAR, Orlando (29) - CM/DM - 89 => 88 A disappointing signing, has played below Bundesliga standard for most of the season, but somehow kept his starting place. GROSSMULLER, Carlos - (26) - CM - 86 => 85/84 An even worse signing, hardly played and when he did, he played awful. KENIA, Levan (18) - CM/AM - 80 A talented player, but only had one short sub appearance this season. Still a hot prospect though. LATZA, Danny (19) - DM - 74 => 75/76 Certainly not a world-beater, but within a few years time, he could establish himself as a better squad player. Also versatile, played DM, RB and from what I heard can also play as LB or CM. RAKITIC, Ivan (21) - AM/Wing - 89 => 89/88 A talented player that is wasted at Schalke. He's best when playing AM, but in Schalkes 4-3-3, he's too offensive-minded for a midfielder, and his passing and shooting abilities don't help him when playing on the flanks. If he moves or SSchalke switch to a 4-4-2 diamond for example, I can see him going uo again. FARFAN, Jefferson (24) - Wing/Fwd - 91 => 90 Probably the most overhyped and disappointing signing this season. If even, he's only shown glimpses of his supposed talent. Usually missing easy chances, being way too selfish and giving away too many balls. ASAMOAH, Gerald (30) - Wing/Fwd - 88 => 88/87 A constant hard worker, but due to his age, he's losing his strong sides, mainly his pace. Can't see him going up anymore. ALTINTOP, Halil (26) - Fwd/AM - 89 => 89/88 Another player that is wasted because of Schalkes tactical system. For the wings, he's not good enough at dribbling and a bit too slow, for being CF he's not good enough at finishing. Again, in a 4-4-2 as a support striker he'd probably be best. VICENTE SANCHEZ, Martín (29) - Fwd/AM - 87 Had a regular spot in the middle of the season, but was then dropped back to the bench due to rather poor performances. KURANYI, Kevin (27) - CF - 91 => 91/90 Probably his worst season. Kicked out of the NT, and poor performances for Schalke. Can't see any reason why he should be joint highest rated player at Schalke besides SM's conservativeness. ERWIG, Christian (25) - CF - 74 Bayer Leverkusen A team with quite a few youngsters and talents, but towards the end of the season they struggled, and couldn't even reach European competition besides reaching the cup finale and being in the Top5 for a long time. ADLER, René (24) - Gk - 91 IMO the most talented keeper in Germany, as he's not only an excellent shot-stopper and great in 1 on 1 situations, but has also contineously improved his anticipating skills. If he's only getting a bit more consistent, and either moves or Leverkusen establish themselves internationally, he can become of the world's best keepers. But for now, no rise. KIRALY, Gabor (33) - Gk - 83 => 82/81 Only 3rd choice, will move to 1860, but I can't see him getting past Tschauner there either. FERNANDEZ, Benedikt (24) - Gk - 82 A good back-up for Adler, but not much more IMO. He might be good enough to be 1st choice for a lower Bundesliga or 2nd division team, but he seems happy at Leverkusen. KADLEC, Michal (24) - LB/CB - 88 Definitely a talented player, if he and Leverkusen improve abit he can hit 90 in time. GRESKO, Vratislav (31) - LB - 86 => 84 Hasn't played one single game DJAKPA, Constant (22) - LB - 84 Nothing more than a back-up player, never really left an impression CASTRO, Gonzalo (21) - RB/DM - 90 => 90/89 Many were surprised by his drop, as SM are usually not that harsh to younger players. However, despite being dubbed the new German RB, I can't see him getting into the NT soon. With the arrival of Daniel Schwaab, he might even have to move to DM permanently SARPEI, Hans (32) - RB/LB - 86 => 86/85 The defensive allrounder is getting old, and has rarely played. Sell definitely. HAGGUI, Karim (25) - CB - 88 => 88/87 Rarely played, will move to Hannover. FRIEDRICH, Manuel (29) - CB - 90 => 90/89 Hasn't really had his best season, a drop is unlikely but possible. HENRIQUE, Buss (22) - CB/RB - 88 One you should have grabbed the last time, 88 is probably his maximum. There's no reason for him to rise again, and I don't think he's good enough for Barcelona. SINKIEWICZ, Lukas (24) - CB/DM - 86 Has played a bit more towards the end of the season, but not really well enough to ensure a starting XI spot next season, especially not after Hyypiä's signing. DUM, Sascha (22) - LM/LB - 84 Has had 20 apps this season, but been subbed in 18(!) times and subbed out the other 2. I don't think he's good enough for a starting spot. RENATO AUGUSTO, Soares (21) - RM/AM - 89 => 89/90 Performance-wise, he'd deserve the 90, however, with Leverkusen's rather bad season (or bad second half of the season rather), I don't think he has much of a chance to rise. SCHNEIDER, Bernd (35) - RM/CM - 89 Finally returned after a long-term injury, and in his short 20 minute comeback he already gave an assist again. I really hope SM don't drop him again, as the past has shown they rarely rise a player again even if he plays well. ROLFES, Simon (27) - CM/DM - 91 One of Leverkusen's best players throughout the season, and he's still regularly playing for the NT. ZDEBEL, Tomasz (36) - CM/DM - 87 => 87/86 Can't say much about him, has played from time to time, but not really enough to be considered a first-teamer. Has been linked to 1860 Munich. SCHWEGLER, Pirmin (22) - CM/DM - 85 Can't really break into the first team yet, but shows his talent when needed. VIDAL, Arturo (22) - DM/CM - 88 A very talented and versatile player, if he manages to clam down a bit (10 yc, 2 rc) and is hopefully used on his favorite position (DM), he definitely is a 90 player. Has played pretty much everywhere for Leverkusen, AM, DM, Wing, Wide back, I hope that SM recognize his versatility and change his position. KROOS, Toni (19) - AM - 85 => 85/86 On loan from Bayern since the winter break, he's slowly made his way into the starting XI and started the last few games of the season, was seen pretty much everywhere, might change to AM/Wing. BARNETTA, Tranquillo (24) - Wing - 90 Definitely a talented player, but I have the feeling that he doesn't show his full potential at Leverkusen. At a better club (or of Leverkusen find some consistency) he might even rise further. KIESSLING, Stefan (25) - Fwd/AM - 90 A constant hard worker, but he lacks the killer instinct of a real class forward, so I can't see him getting past 90, which is probably the fairest rating for him. HELMES, Patrick (25) - Fwd - 89 Has picked up a bad injury, and will probably miss for around 6 months. In case he would have stayed fit I'd have predicted a rise (4th best scorer in the league), but if he did, SM would have no other choice but drop him again after. CHARISTEAS, Angelos (29) - CF - 87 => 87/86 On loan from a 2nd division team, and he hasn't really showed the form which once made him cup winner with Nürnberg and Euro Champ with Greece. Will return to Nürnberg. SUKUTA-PASU, Richard (18) - CF - 77 One of the most talented strikers of his age, and Helmes' injury could be the big chance for him to make his break-through in the Bundesliga, even though Kiessling will probably partner up with Derdiyok at the beginning. I'm sure he gets one chance or another next season, and if he impresses, well, he might rise quite a bit. Werder Bremen By their standards, they had onw of their worst seasons in recent times. However, reaching the UEFA Cup final and winning the cup - DFB-Pokal - shows that they have quite a few good and talented players in their squad WIESE, Tim (27) - Gk - 90 => 90/91 Has finally shown what he always lacked in the past: consistency. Often ruined great performances with horrendous errors earlier, but he has now become much more confident. Still has a chance to be nominated for the Germany 2010 WC squad. VANDER, Christian (28) - Gk - 82 => 82/83 IMO, 82 is too low for him, he's always been a solid replacement for Wiese when he missed, but then again, he probably hasn't played enough to warrant a rise. PELLATZ, Nico (22) - Gk - 77 MIELITZ, Sebastian (19) - Gk - 75 => 76/77 Has played just as much as Pellatz for the reserves, and both have obviously been doing ok, but not good enough to play for the first team. BOENISCH, Sebastian (22) - LB/LM - 86 => 86/87 He hasn't really played extra-ordinarily, but he managed to pick up most of the games and can be considered a regular. TOSIC, Dusko (24) - LB/CB - 86 => 85/86 Lost his place to Boenisch after quite a few disappointing games. ANDERSEN, Niklas (20) - LB - 77 A regular for the reserves, and had his Bundesliga debut a few days before the end of the season. FRITZ, Clemens (28) - RB/RM - 90 After the very disappointing Euros, he played solid for Bremen, should stay at 90. HOLSING, Finn (25) - RB/RM - 77 MERTESACKER, Per (24) - CB - 93 Despite what most people say, he fully deserves his 93, despite Bremen's rather poor defensive record and league position. He's one of the very few players I'd considere as a sure starter for the NT (besides Lahm and Klose and probably Ballack), and after all, he's probably the fairest defender I know. NALDO, Aparecido (26) - CB - 91 He also deserves to be rated at 91, together with Mertesacker, he forms one of the best CB pairs in the Bundesliga. Also always dangerous when going forward and has a good shooting and heading ability. PRÖDL, Sebastian (21) - CB - 86 => 87 Played quite often towards the end of the season, as he always had to replace some injured player. However, he didn't play well enough to deserve a higher increase. Also played as RB when needed, should change to CB/RB. PASANEN, Petri (28) - Def - 88 => 88/87 Also played a bit more towards the end of the season, atm, I'd say Prödl is preferred over him at the CB and RB position, which could mean he drops. ARTMANN, Kevin (23) - LM/CM - 80 => 78 has only played for the reserves, and picked up a bad injury. JENSEN, Daniel (29) - CM - 89 => 88/87 Rarely played, and when he did, he usually disappointed. Actually doesn't deserve to be rated above the likes of Gentner and Sahin IMO VRANJES, Jurica (29) - CM/DM - 87 => 87/86 Pretty much the same as Jensen. FRINGS, Torsten (32) - DM/CM - 92 => 92/91 He's getting older, and he slowly looses the attributes which once made him a 93 player. BAUMANN, Frank (33) - DM/CB - 88 Retires after this season, sell as long as he's still worth something. TZIOLIS, Alexandros (24) - DM - 87 Apparently one of Schaaf's favorite players, but has never really shown why... NIEMEYER, Peter (25) - DM/RB - 84 => 85 It's difficult to say much about him, he was almost invisible in most of the matches I've seen. But that's not really a bad thing for a defensive player... FELDHAHN, Nicolas (22) - DM/CB - 78 OZIL, Mesut (20) - AM/LM - 89 I really hope he can finally show ALL his potential now that Diego left, and I'm pretty confident that he does, he's one of the most talented German footballers. No rise for now though, as he hasn't really played enough. DIEGO, Ribas (24) - AM/CM - 94 One of the best players in the Bundesliga, unfortunately left and will now be playing in Italy. Will leave a huge gap at Bremen, but this could prove to be the big chance for Özil. HUNT, Aaron (22) - Wing/Fwd - 87 Not first choice at Bremen, but his performances haven't really helped him either. If he gets some playing time, I'm sure he'd whow more of his talent. ROSENBERG, Markus (26) - Fwd - 89 => 88/89 IMO a horrible striker, he's missing far too many chances. That being said, he's still a hard worker and usually has an eye for his teammates. Definitely not on the same level as Pizarro though. HARNIK, Martin (21) - Fwd/AM - 84 Hasn't played that much for Bremen, he's still playing frm time to time for the Austrian NT. MENGA, Addy-Waku (25) - Fwd/Wing - 80 => 78 Joined from 2nd division team Hansa Rostock and has only played for the reserves. BEGEORGI, Fabrice (22) - Fwd/Wing - 78 Also a reserve player who joined in the winter HUGO ALMEIDA, Miguel (25) - CF - 89 IMO the better partner for Pizarro than Rosenberg this season. PIZARRO, Claudio (30) - CF - 89 => 89/90 Performance-wise, he'd deserve the rise, but as he'll likely return to Chelsea in the summer, he'd probably drop there again, so I'm not really expecting a rise for him. OEHRL, Torsten (23) - CF - 78 Regular for the reserves, with one short sub appearance in the Bundesliga. Hannover 96 To make it short, there's only one reason why Hannover didn't get relegated and didn't even have to fight with relegation for most of the time, and that's their keeper. Their defense is bad, the midfield lacks creativity and the attack is too harmless. ENKE, Robert (31) - Gk - 91 => 91/92 By far their best player, and IMO he currently has the best chances to e Germany's first keeper at the WC 2010. Always consistent, a great shot-stopper, and good anticipation. FROMLOWITZ, Florian (22) - Gk - 82 => 82/83 Did a good job when he had to replace Enke, who was a bit unlucky this season with injuries, and IMO a 2nd choice keeper can and should be rated higher than 82 JENSEN, Morten (21) - Gk - 77 Regular for the reserves, but only 3rd choice in the first team, but even had one game when Enke was injured and Fromlowitz suspended, but for now, I can't see him getting past Fromlowitz. TARNAT, Michael (39) - LB/LM - 85 Retires after this season RAUSCH, Konstantin (19) - LB/LM - 82 => 84/85 IMO can be considered a regular, and IMO, he was one of the best in Hannover's defense for most of the time. CHERUNDOLO, Steve (39) - RB - 86 => 85 Hasn't played since the last changes, and is getting really old. Sell as long as he's still worth something. ISMAEL, Valérien (33) - CB - 86 => 85/84 Probably one of the players whose career was ruined by injuries. IMO one of the best defenders when fit, but he's rarely been that in the past couple of years. He's even talked about retiring, but so far, it's not 100% sure. VINICIUS, Bergantin (28) - CB - 86 => 85/86 Not first choice either, and when I've seen him play, he usually was one the worst players on the pitch. EGGIMANN, Mario (28) - CB - 86 One of the most error-prone defenders in the league, only the amount of games he played will probably keep him at 86. FAHRENHORST, Frank (31) - CB/DM - 86 One of the better player's in Hannover's defense, but still far from being good. Will move to Duisburg next season, I'd be surprised if he keeps his rating there. KRZYNOWEK, Jacek (33) - LM/CM - 87 Did the right thing with his move to Hannover, and IMO has been of the better players in Hannover's squad. Should be safe at 87 for now, but I don't think he can keep it that much longer. PINTO, Sergio (28) - RM/AM - 86 => 86/87 Played a bit better towards the end of the season, but was invisible for me most of the time. Performance-wise, he doesn't really deserve the increase, but the amount of playing time leaves a slight chance. ZIZZO, Salvatore (22) - RB/RM - 75 => 75/76 Not really the best player I know, but he was subbed in quite often towards the end of the season. A small increase might be possible, but I don't think he's good enough to get a starting spot next season. YANKOV, Chavdar (25) - CM/RM - 85 => 84/83 Hasn't played in the second half of the season, and is likely to move in the summer, will most likely end at a club in the 2. Bundesliga. SCHULZ, Christian (26) - DM/LB - 88 A very versatile player, and it looks like he's settled in Hannover's central defense. Not really good enough to deserve a rise though, but should change to Def/DM, IV/DM or something similar. LALA, Altin (33) - DM/CM - 87 => 86 Had a very weak season IMO, didn't really strengthen the defense when he played. Continually has problems with his back, I'm not really sure how long he will stay active. BALITSCH, Hanno (28) - DM - 87 One of the most consistent performers, fair at 87 ANDREASEN, Leon (26) - DM/CB - 86 Did the right thing with moving away from the EPL, has regularly played for Wolfsburg. SCHULZ, Bastian (23) - DM - 80 => 81/82 Has gotten another couple of subs and starts, but didn't really excell BRUGGINK, Arnold (31) - AM - 87 Has done an ok job, isn't really the most creative play-maker or best goalscorer. ROSENTHAL, Jan (23) - AM/RM - 86 => 86/85 Rarely plays when most of the others are fit, but usually does a god job. STAJNER, Jiri (33) - Wing/Fwd - 87 => 87/88 Despite his age, he's still one of the best in Hannover's squad, still fast fo his age and regularly dangerous in front of the goal. HAHNE, Hendrik (23) - Wing - 74 SCHLAUDRAFF, Jan (25) - Fwd/AM - 88 => 88/87 IMO still a good footballer, but has been hit hard by injuries this season. If he gets back to his pre-Bayern form, he can go higher again. HANKE, Mike (25) - CF - 87 => 86/87 FORSSELL, Mikael (28) - CF - 86 => 87/86 It's difficult to say what will hapeen to these two, IMO Forssell has been disappointing for most of the season, but he has played more than Hanke. Both should probably be the same rating, but I wouldn't be surprised if either SM stay conservative and both stay or if they switch ratings. 1. FC Köln The main reasons for Köln's rather good finish (they were out of the relegation battle quite early) are their striker Novakovic and a good, solid central defense. The rest of the team haven't really excelled. With the signing of Podolski they got another top striker, if he teams up well with Novakovic, Köln should be able to avoid relegation in the nearer future and establish themselves in the Bundesliga again. MONDRAGON, Faryd (37) - Gk - 87 Still one of the better keepers in the league, but not really good enough to deserve an increase. VARVODIC, Miro (20) - Gk - 80 => 79/78 Never heard of him tbh, now back in Croatia. Didn't even play when Mondragon was missing. KESSLER, Thomas (23) - Gk - 76 => 78/79 Dropped last time despite being actual 2nd choice behind Mondragon. Played 3 games at the end of the season, and got some media attention by giving an assist in his 2nd game. WOME, Pierre (30) - LB - 87 => 87/86 Missed quite a few games because of injuries, but always a solid performer when fit. BRECKO, Mišo (25) - RB/RM - 86 => 87 Already rose 2 last time, and he kept up his good form and is likely to rise again. Don't think he can get much higher than that though. CULLMANN, Carsten (33) - RB/CB - 75 Only playing for the reserves GEROMEL, Pedro (23) - CB - 88 FOrms one of the CB partnerships in the Bundesliga with Mohamad, fully deserves to be one of the highest-rated players in Köln. Might get higher if he moves. MOHAMAD, Youssef (28) - CB - 87 As mentioned above, one of the best partnerships in the league, but a tad less solid than Geromel MCKENNA, Kevin (29) - CB - 85 => 85/86 Native CB, but usually played RB when both CB's where fit. Small chance of a rise, but should change to CB/RB or maybe even Def. MATIP, Marvin (23) - Def/DM - 85 Has been used as DM more often recently, but hasn't really shown all his qualities there. EHRET, Fabrice (29) - LM/LB - 85 => 86 Can be considered a regular for Köln, but nothing spectacular. BOATENG, Derek (26) - CM/DM - 86 Came in the winter break, but hasn't really excelled. BROICH, Thomas (28) - CM/RM - 84 PETIT, Armando (32) - DM/CM - 90 => 89/90 Despite being a good performer and leader at Köln, he hasn't really played any better than other Bundesliga players with the same rating. PEZZONI, Kevin (20) - DM/CM - 84 => 85 Another small rise for the youngsters, has done a good job when he was needed, ANTAR, Roda (28) - AM - 85 => 84/83 Was fired by Köln, and will now be playing in China ANDRE, Oliveira (24) - AM - 82 Another player who actually moved away from Köln a while ago, but is still listed in their squad. YALCIN, Taner (19) - AM - 75 => 76/77 Has gotten a few more minutes towards the end of the season, a small rise is justified. VUCICEVIC, Nemanja (29) - Wing/AM - 86 Has been very inconsistent this season, and his contract didn't get renewed. Not sure what he'll do next seaoson. CHIHI, Adil (21) - Wing/Fwd - 83 There have been much talks about his talent, but whenever I've seen him play, he hasn't even shown glimpses of it. Don't think he'll ever make an impact at a major club. SANOU, Wilfried (25) - Wing/Fwd - 81 Only a squad player, and hasn't performed too well when he played. BROSINSKI, Daniel (20) - Wing - 75 => 77/78 Faded a bit away after his spectacular debut with a goal against Bayern, played a bit more, but never has been of the top performers. Still a keeper for the future, might make his break-trough next season or the season after. SCHERZ, Matthias (37) - Fwd/Wing - 82 Has retired. NOVAKOVIC, Milivoje (30) - CF - 87 => 87/88 If you want to be harsh, Novakovic was the only dangerous player in Köln's team. Scored half of their goals this season, worthy of another rise if he keeps it up. RADU, Sergiu (31) - CF - 86 => 85 ISHIAKU, Manaseh (26) - CF - 85 => 84 Both have been totally harmless when they played, but I wouldn't class them as classical CF's anyway. Eintracht Frankfurt A team which had to fight with many injuries for most of the season, but still managed to stay in the Bundesliga. A very balanced squad qithout any real topstars, but a good morale and spirit. PROLL, Markus (29) - Gk - 87 NIKOLOV, Oka (35) - Gk - 86 ZIMMERMANN, Jan (24) - Gk - 76 Although Nikolov wears the #1 shirt, it has been a close race between him and Pröll for most of the season. But since both were also very injury-prone, even the 3rd keeper Zimmermann made a short appearance. It'll be interesting to see which keeper will start next season, as Fährmann, a keeper I personally rate quite highly, also joins Frankfurt. Depending on who is number one, two and three at the beginning of next, the rating will change accordingly. Atm I can't make any statement of who's most likely to start, only that Zimmermann doesn't have much of a future at Eintracht. SPYCHER, Christoph (31) - LB/LM - 88 => 88/87 The Swiss international hasn't really convinced this season and also missed around half of the season due to an injury. PETKOVIC, Nikola (23) - LB - 85 => 85/84 Signed as replacement for the injured Spycher, but his performaces have been rather poor, and he was then dropped to the bench and didn't play for the last 10 games of the season. OCHS, Patrick (25) - RB - 88 Probably the best player for Frankfurt, maybe if he joined a better club I wouldn't rule out a Germany call-up. JUNG, Sebastian (18) - RB - 74 => 77/78 A young and fast defender, IMO he'll make it into a Bundesliga starting XI within 2 or 3 years. Atm he has no chance to take over the RB spot from Ochs, but is also versatile enough to replace injured/suspended wide-backs or DMs. Should change to RB/DM for now, RUSS, Marco (23) - CB/DM - 87 The most solid and consistent performer in Frankfurt's central defense. BELLAID, Habib (23) - CB - 87 => 87/86 Has played more towards the end of the season, but his performances have been below par for most of the season. VASOSKI, Aleksandar (29) - CB - 84 => 83 Been injured for most of the time. KOHLER, Benjamin (28) - LM/CM - 87 => 87/86 Picked up an injury at the end of the season, but couldn't really convince before either. TOSKI, Faton (22) - LM/Wing - 83 => 83/82 Missed most of the second part of the season because of an injury. LJUBICIC, Krešo (20) - LM - 76 STEINHOFER, Markus (23) - RM/RB - 86 MAHDAVIKIA, Mehdi (31) - RM/RB - 85 Steinhöfer is usually preferred over Mahdavikia, who seems on his way down. INAMOTO, Junichi (29) - CM/DM - 87 Like most of the Frankfurt squad, he struggled with injuries for a big part of the season. Will move to France next season. CAIO, César (23) - CM/AM - 85 => 85/84 Played ok when he was needed, but despite many injury problems, he's only a squad player. PREUSS, Christoph (27) - CM/DM - 84 => 83 MIssed the whole season due to injuries. FINK, Michael (27) - DM/CM - 88 The best and most consistent performer in Frankfurt's midfield, will move to Besiktas since he didn't want to renew his contract at Frankfurt. BAJRAMOVIC, Zlatan (29) - DM/CM - 87 => 86 CHRIS, Maicon (20) - DM/CB - 85 => 86/85 Has been partnering up with Russ in the central defense for most of the season after the winter break, if he keeps up his good performances he can rise further. Should change to CB/DM. MEIER, Alexander (26) - AM/Fwd - 86 => 86/87 Returned from injury in the winter, and has since made good performances for Frankfurt. If he stays injury-free, he might get a bit higher again. KORKMAZ, Ümit (23) - Wing/Fwd - 85 => 85/84 Had a bad injury, and has since not been able to cement a starting spot and only had a couple of short sub apps. AMANATIDIS, Ioannis (27) - Fwd - 88 => 88/87 A good player, but, who could guess it, missed most of the season due to injury. When he's fit at the beginning of next season and performs well, he should keep his rating LIBEROPOULOS, Nikos (33) - Fwd/AM - 88 A player I personally don't rate too much, but the amount of games he played probably keeps him at 88. FENIN, Martin (22) - Fwd/AM - 87 Has been good and constant for most of the season, but not enough IMO to rise. KWEUKE, Leonard (21) - CF - 82 => 82/81 Had a few chances to prove himself, but after many rather poor performances he was dropped to the bench. HESS, Martin (22) - Fwd/Wing - 76 Only a player for the reserves. VACCARO, Angelo (27) - CF - 78 TSOUMOU, Juvhel (18) - CF - 75 Only players for the reserves. VfL Bochum FERNANDES, Daniel (25) - Gk - 87 A pretty average keeper in my opinion, but still first choice at Bochum HEERWAGEN, Philipp (26) - Gk - 80 => 80/81 Did a very good job when he had to replace Fernandes, however I believe that he has no chance to take over the no.1 spot, but is surely the definite no.2 RENNO, René (30) - Gk - 80 => 78/79 Only 3rd choice. FUCHS, Christian (23) - LB/LM - 87 The Austrian international was probably Bochum's best defender despite actually being a midfielder. If he wasn't injured at the end of the season, I'd say he could rise, maybe depending on his performances next season it might be possible in the near future. BONIG, Philipp (29) - LB - 86 Picked up most of his games after Fuchs' injury, but IMO he should remain lower than him. CONCHA, Matias (28) - RB - 86 => 86/85 PFERTZEL, Marc (28) - RB/CB - 86 Pfertzel seems to have secured himself the RB spot, but IMO hasn't done enough yet to warrant a rise. SCHRODER, Oliver (28) - RB/DM - 85 => 84 Mainly used as a midfielder, will move to Rostock. YAHIA, Anthar (27) - CB - 87 MALTRITZ, Marcel (30) - CB/DM - 87 They form a (for a 'lower' Bundesliga club anyway) pretty solid duo, although the amount of games they played together decreased steadily due to injuries. If both remain fit, I'd say both could reach 88 even if they stay in Bochum. MAVRAJ, Mergim (22) - CB/LB - 82 => 84/83 Played most of the games at the end of the season, when many Bochum players were hit by injuries. FABIAN, Patrick (21) - CB - 74 => 75/76 Had 2 full games in the middle of the season after 3 short subs, but isn't really close to the first team if all are fit. GROTE, Dennis (22) - LM - 84 => 85 A talented player who slowly establishes himself in Bochum's first team, but will probably never be world-beater, but can be a solid 87/88 within a year or two. FREIER, Paul (29) - RM/Wing - 86 Played regularly since his return, but his far from his form which once earned him quite a few Germany call-ups. IMO he's past his best, sell him while you can. AZAOUAGH, Mimoun (26) - RM/AM - 85 => 86 The versatile midfielder is the player with the most games after Dabrowski in Bochum's midfield. Has played pretty much everywhere, but not really sure to what he should change. DABROWSKI, Christoph (30) - CM/DM - 88 The only player besides Sestak who really deserves the 88, Bochum's most important player. IMHOF, Daniel (31) - DM/CM - 85 => 86 Made a solid impression when he and Dabrowski played together in DM. ONO, Shinji (29) - AM/LM - 85 => 84 Rarely played. EPALLE, Joël (31) - Wing/Fwd - 86 Can't really say much about him, hasn't really impressed me, I didn't even know he played so much... SESTÁK, Stanislav (26) - Fwd/Wing - 88 Played better when he partnered up with Klimowicz, his speed is amazing. PROKOPH, Roman (23) - Fwd - 75 Only a reserves player, never made his break-through KLIMOWICZ, Diego (34) - CF - 86 Did te right thing when he moved to Bochum, but isn't really the most dangerous player anymore. Should stay for now, but injuries and age are playing an always increasing role. KALOGLU, Sinan (27) - CF - 85 MIECIEL, Marcin (33) - CF - 85 => 84 HASHEMIAN, Vahid (32) - CF - 84 All 3 haven't really proven themselves as goal scorers, the only thing that keeps them in the 84/85 region is the playing time. Borussia Mönchengladbach BAILLY, Logan (23) - Gk - 85 => 86/87 A great signing, has secured Gladbach many important points with amazing saves. HEIMEROTH, Christofer (27) - Gk - 83 => 82/81 Will now be 2nd choice, I think 83 is a bit much for a team like Gladbach, especially since he hasn't played since Bailly's transfer GOSPODAREK, Uwe (35) - Gk - 80 => 79/78 Lost his contract at GLadbach, not sure of his futurem but it soesn't look like he already retires. LOHE, Frederic (20) - Gk - 74 DANTE, Santos (25) - LB/CB - 87 Did a good job IMO, was always dangerous after corners and free-kicks. If he also improves his defensive skills, he might be able to move to a bigger club. JAURES, Jean-Sébastien (31) - LB/LM - 86 => 85/84 DORDA, Christian (20) - LB - 78 Both rarely played since the last changes STALTERI, Paul (31) - RB/LB - 85 => 85/86 Back in the Bundesliga, he seems to find back to his old form slowly LEVELS, Tobias (22) - RB - 83 => 83/84 Depending on the start of next season, he might be in for a small rise. Did pretty well when he played, but whn you're fighting against relegation usually more experienced players are preferred. RUBINK, Tim (21) - RB/CB - 76 DAEMS, Filip (30) - CB/LB - 85 => 86 The most consistent player for Gladbach, mostly reliable in defense BROUWERS, Roel (27) - CB - 85 => 85/86 Improved towards the end of the season as well, the next season will decide if he rises or not. GOHOURI, Steve (28) - CB/RB - 84 => 83 KLEINE, Thomas (31) - CB - 84 => 82 CALLSEN-BRACKER, Jan-Ingwer (24) - CB - 84 => 83 All three only picked up a handful of sub apps at the end of the season, if any at all. VAN DEN BERGH, Johannes (22) - LM/LB - 78 KESEROGLU, Abdulla (21) - LM - 75 I don't really think they both have much of a chance in Gladbach, even after Marin's and Baumjohann's departure. BRADLEY, Michael (21) - CM - 88 IMO he deserved the drop last time, but this time he should stay. He constantly played rather well, and his USA games help as well. GALASEK, Tomás (36) - CM/DM - 87 Was one of the most important signings and kept the Gladbach defense together in the second half of the season. I think he'd still be good enough to play another season, but he decided to end his career. JANTSCHKE, Tony (19) - CM - 78 Made 4 games in the middle of the season, but despite good performances was dropped to the bench for more experienced players. Still a talented player, and one to keep. ALBERMAN, Gal (26) - DM/CM - 86 => 85/86 Missed most of the season after the winter break due to an injury, but even before he hasn't really impressed. Still, with good performances at the beginning of next season he might stay. PAAUWE, Patrick (33) - DM/CB - 86 Hasn't really convinced at Gladbach, and will move back to the Netherlands. SCHACHTEN, Sebastian (24) - DM/Def - 76 Only one short game at the end of the season, can't say much about him, but probably not a world-beater of he still spends most of the time on the bench with 24. COULIBALY, Soumaila (31) - AM/LM - 82 => 81 Rarely played BAUMJOHANN, Alexander (22) - AM/Wing - 85 => 86/85 Played well and is definitely talented, will be moving to Bayern this summer, but I don't think he'll ever be able to get a starting spot there. MARIN, Marko (20) - Wing/AM - 89 Despite many other predictions, I think he'll stay for now. His performances for Gladbach haven't been the best, and he hasn't fully convinced at the U-21 Euros either IMO, mainly because he had to play in an unusual role as a forward. But I'm pretty sure that after some time in Bremen, he can set the Bundesliga on fire, a definite player to keep. MATMOUR, Karim (23) - Wing/Fwd - 84 => 85 I was surprised to see that he has featured in all games this season, he's often forgotten after the media hyope around Marin & Baumjohann. TOUMA, Sharbel (30) - Wing/Fwd - 83 => 81 LAMIDI, Moses (21) - Wing/Fwd - 77 => 77/78 Made 4 short appearances at the end of the season, but hasn't left an impression. NEUVILLE, Oliver (36) - Fwd - 85 FRIEND, Rob (28) - CF - 85 COLAUTTI, Roberto (27) - CF - 84 The weak spot in Gladbach last season, Neuville's getting older and older and never really was a prolific goal-scorer, Friend struggled with injuries and Colautti pretty much missed everything. I'm pretty sure that all will have to compete with Bobdailla next season. The last 3 teams will follow soon... If you have any questions, disagreements or suggestions, feel free to do so, I'll always try to listen and help.

    u19 international bargains

    From looking at the u19 european championship qualifying, there struck me as being many good young players, with great potential. All mentioned are on DB, and cost less than 100,000. Sorry if mentioned before, but the more info the better:D 1. Krystian PEARCE CB 17 70 ENG 10k Pearce is a product of Birmingham City's academy. He has had two loan spells at notts county and port vale, making 35 appearances this season so far. He captained the Birmingham u-18 side to the youth cup final last season. He was an integral part of the England u-17 team that lost to Spain in the final of the 2007 UEFA tournament. Terry Brooking described Pearce as the 'best player in the world cup'. Pearce is both footed, pacy, tall and good in the air - the hallmarks of a world class defender. Also good going forward, he scored against Belgium and Iceland in qualifying. Highly Recommended 2. Sam HUTCHINSON RB/CB 18 68 ENG 20k Hutchinson is at Chelsea, so chances to impress have been limited, but he captained the England under 19s in their friendly with Germany. Has played in all of England's recent qualifiers, and made the second most appearances for Chelsea's youth team last season, proof of their trust in him. Although he has not had quite the same plaudits as Pearce, he still has the potential to go a long way. 3. San Jose MIKEL CB 18 72 SPA 70k Mikel is the lynchpin of a miserly Spanish defence, which conceded just one goal in its three qualifiers for the elite round. He was snapped up by Liverpool from the Athletic Bilbao academy, and is seen as having great potential, though he hasn't made a first team appearance as of yet, but was on the bench for the away game at Chelsea, showing Benitez's confidence in the youngster. 4. Emilio NSUE F 18 72 SPA 70k Already mentioned many times on the forum, but I thought it would be churlish to leave him out. Nsue is already breaking into the team with two sub appearances, while many of europe's biggest clubs are chasing him. 5. Daniel PAREJO CM 18 70 SPA 10k Parejo is currently at Real Madrid Castila, which has produced many La Liga players recently, such as De La Red, Miguel Torres and Esteban Granero. He has scored 8 goals for Castilla this season from midfield, and he netted Spain's winner against Greece in the 2007 u19 football championships, despite being a year younger than many of the other players with a clever free-kick. Once again, I recommend him highly, although SM does not review player ratings for Segunda B, but I would expect a large rise at the start of next season - RMC are currently 2nd. 6. Botond BIRTALAN F 18 71 20k Birtalan plays for Sopron in the Hungarian League, which i can't find any stats for, especially as Sopron were relegated last year. But on the international stage, Birtalan has scored two in three games for the under-19s alongside Kristian Nemeth of Liverpool. Could be worth a punt at 20k. 7. Andras SIMON F 18 71 20k Simon now plays for Liverpool, who bought him along with Nemeth from MTK. Simon is more of a back up for Birtalan at international level, but Liverpool don't normally buy rubbish youths on the other hand. Could struggle for first team opportunities though. 8. Jo Sondre AAS CF 18 68 NOR 20k Aas plays for Rosenborg in Norway, making a sub appearance in their first game of the season - surely a positive sign of future appearances. Aas is an important member of the Norwegian u19s who were very impressive in qualifying unbeaten, including a 3-1 win over a highly rated Dutch team, in which he scored. 9. Ola KAMARA CF 18 70 NOR 10k Kamara is used mainly as a sub for Norway, but has already made 3 appearances for Stabaek last year. Wouldn't rush to get him, but you never know.. 10. Christos XENOFONTOS F 19 69 CYP 20k Played for the Cyprus team who qualified despite a 5-1 hammering by Slovakia in their first game. He plays for AEK Larnaca in Cyprus and has featured 5 times already for them. 11. Lefteris MATSOUKAS F 18 72 GRE 70k Matsoukas plays for Olympiakos, for whom he has played in just 1 competitive fixture, but has scored for them in many friendlies. At u19 level he has formed a deadly partnership with AEK's Pavlis who have scored 6 goals between them in Greece's three qualifiers. Greece held France to a 2-2 draw as part of the campaign, so it wasn't all easy for them. 12. Nikos BARBOUDIS D 18 71 GRE 10k Barboudis plays for AEK Athens in Greece, though he is currently on loan to feeder club Fostiras. He has performed well in these qualifiers, and scored a goal in the 1-0 defeat of Slovenia. He was the standby for the silver medal winning team of 2007. Part Two will come later.. Please note that I am not expecting these players to have any sort of rises, but merely are good cheap long term prospects.

    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.
