  1. Re: Guess at next leagues to be reviewed, & discuss SM's review policy........

    Howie, that post was spot on.

    No-one will disagree that changes needed to be made. But the changes made are the wrong ones. Soccerwiki could have been helpful, it could have been good, a way to help SM review leagues, ensure players or teams aren't missed. They should have used it as a guide to how well players are doing, then updated their ratings based on their own rules for ratings. All they are doing here, is trusting the Internet. The next thing we know is they'll issue a statement, saying they were wrong to use Soccerwiki, but they never expected people on the internet to lie.

    As a perfect example, of how SM doesn't have it's updates, improvements and changes right - why bring in the scouting, when goalkeepers never get injured, booked or sent off? ever?

    Each time there is a break in the ratings, I now expect some more rubbish to come up that SM want me to spend my credits on. Now, SM is a company, it needs and wants to make money, so getting you to spend money on scouting etc is a good idea. The problem here is the scouting is not good. It's rubbish. Why, for example, in a full gameworld, would I want to see a scout report based on what the A.I. would play and their formation, when it CLEARLY doesn't have the strongest team as it's lineup. For this I would expect to see something that showed me the last 5 games formations, line ups and tactics. That would be useful. Oh, and for it to tell me the best counter tactic. THAT would be scouting. THAT I would spend, use and buy SM Credits for.

    In short, SM, you need to sort it out. You appear to be doing less work (Soccerwiki does your ratings now) and asking for more of our money for stuff that is no good. If this was dragon's den, everyone would be OUT.

  3. Re: Tactics Help Thread

    I need some help with finding the right tactics for my side. I play in a very competitive gameworld, and am in danger of relegation!! I've tried playing 3-5-2. 5-3-2 (normal and sweeper), 5-4-1 and nothing has brought any consistency. Generally I play Counter-attack, defensive mentality with direct passing. Any tips or formations suggestion most welcome.

    Currently playing 3-4-2-1, normal mentality, normal tempo, pressing own half, men behind the ball, counter attack, play maker and target man, Passing through the middle with the 2 players in this formation with back arrows. This has given me 1 win and 1 draw in the 2 games I have used it so far.

    Most teams in this league use 3-5-2 or 4-5-1. I figured 3-4-2-1 with the arrows *should* give me a 6 man midfield

  4. Re: Tactics Help Thread

    I need some help with my side here. I'm now in charge for my 8th season, and had reggular top 6 finishes using 5-4-1 and then 5-3-2 formations. However results began to wane, and an overhaul of my side gave me the players below, and I'd hoped to play 4-44-2 (Diamond) but that is failing. Any suggestions on the best formation I should play with these players?

  5. Re: Netherlands - Eredivisie - Only the biggest risers!!

    Hi guys

    firstly' date=' I know plugging other sites is a bit of a no-no but as you can see from my rep, I'm a pretty decent poster who just enjoys SM. I've helped out with Dutch ratings before, not in recent months but I did in the past. Made a couple of friends on here doing that and it's good to see people still rating the Eredivisie.

    Anyway, I thought this could come in handy to some of you:


    it's an article I wrote which just lists who I think are 20 players who could move this summer. SM where themselves quite welcoming of my first article, on Vitesse, retweeting it and everything.

    Sorry if this isnt allowed but I'm not trying to get page traffic or anything, just trying to provide an added source for potential Eredivisie buyers in SM :D

    thanks, will come in handy for me!

  6. Re: Russian and Ukraine Player Analysis 2010

    Hmm' date=' don't expected Guiliano having 88, but he rised. Nice rise for Jadson & Willian, is good for my brand new Shakhtar team in European Championship 2280. Also Douglas Costa and Rakytskiy rised nice, and also other Shakhtar players. :)

    Also a nice rise for Koval, he deserves the 85 that he got.[b'] And Taison from Metalist also deserves his 88 imo.[/b] :)

    But devic doesn't?!:mad:

  7. Re: Russian and Ukraine Player Analysis 2010

    No rise for Devic.

    He changes from AM/Fwd to Fwd/AM.

    This is despite him being Joint 2nd top scorer in the league with Idahor (just rose 1 to 85), having scored more than Adriano, Shevchenko, played for Ukraine national team alot.

    Attacking players rated above Devic for Metalist:

    Xavier 10 assists 9 goals, no national team appearances

    TAISON 3 Assists, 8 goals no national team appearances

    Blanco played in Feb, twice, before eingg out until September, in the Apertura for Lanus the previous season had 1 goal in 14 games, although had an outstanding Clausura a year ago.

    Am I the only who think this is harsh on Devic in comparrison to others in his league?

  8. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread...

    Is it worth giving up Humberto Suazo and Razvan Rat for Wagner Love?

    Love would be a direct and better replacement for Suazo, Rat would deplete my defence in the short term, I have an 89 to cover, but he usually plays CB, so I'd then need to play an 87 at CB.

    My other main striker is Mbokani

    For the longer term, is this a good deal?

  9. Re: AM Help needed

    Borja Valero 86 > 87

    Playing very well for Mallorca after an unsettled spell with West Brom. Could be a calculated long-term gamble as he has bags of ability.

    Boo! He's just been bought by another manager and is on a Transfer Ban until Jan!

    Thanks for the tip though!

  10. Re: AM Help needed

    keisuke honda - 86 in holland so wont rise for a while but has been linked with moves to everton liverpool sunderland in january

    I might eb able to sign him. he's at an unmanaged club in my set-up. ISo I'll have to wait for a new manager to take over before being able to bid - but might be able to get him! Thanks!

  11. Am looking for an AM - someone who is perhaps 86/87 rated (I have £10m to spend) who is likely to rise in the next few months to at least an 88 (pref an 89! :D) but with potential to rise further...can anyone recommend me someone? Thanks!
