  1. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers *

    Houllier is the second most stubborn man i know (Behind O'Neill of course)' date=' For example today we had hardly any fit defenders so we had to play 19 year old chris Herd who's a [b']CM[/b] at CB

    Actually 21... ;) In the last year and a half Herd has come a long way, from seeing him first in the u20 WC. Will hopefully turn into a good CM at Villa, even RB.


  2. Re: Official Aston Villa Thread ! * no spoilers *

    I have faith that Gerrard Houllier would not sign him. I just cant see it.

    Has there contract been terminated or is it just set to expire in the summer ? Kit sponsors regularly change. We have had a few under Lerner. Also went a season advertising a charity on our **** too.

    Im just delighted that in a press conferance GH has said he WILL go abroad in the summer to look for young foreign talent. Mentioning that he wants go globalize his squad' date=' which is correct. Looking abroad increases your options, its simple really. I am definitely looking forward to this summer.

    we HAVE to win tomorrow !![/quote']

    Probably plenty of young gems around... Kagawa was an easy one for Dortmund at well under a million (600 or so). Kantarovski would be one from Australia! ;) He'll probably end up in Germany or somewhere like that though.


  3. Re: EAU and QATAR risers

    Ahmed Khalil raised +2 today' date=' a small rise, i was expecting a little bit more i admit.. But like said previously, this changes are mainly to drop the overrated old players of this league.. Now comes Croatia, Romania and Serbia.[/quote']

    Pretty much... Wait and see how he goes in a few seasons.


  4. Re: Mustafa Amini- trialling with Borrusia Dortmund and Newcastle United

    He had the hair trimmed a bit this week.

    Good luck to him and our other young prospects! :D

    I guess it's mostly training with them for the u20 WC coming up, but obviously trialling is the important thing. Better off with Dortmund for development, he'll be around and behind the likes of Gotze and that other young German they just bought... Moritz Leitner.

    I like our u20 age group quite a lot, especially compared to some from the last batches.

    Another who could be pushing to start in that u20 WC (well decent chance) will be Terry Antonis; yet to turn 18 until in the later part of the year.

    ;) Wait and see until then (hopefully they all perform to potential).


  5. Re: EAU and QATAR risers

    *UAE

    Ahmed Khalil is the only one I know really. He's a gun I guess and certainly can get to a high level if he pushes himself. Long overdue for a rating increase.... ;) I am leaning towards 82-81 (80 at least obviously).

    Scored a lovely goal (also a penalty) when we beat UAE in one of our u19 games in the later part of last year. They didn't qualify for the u20 WC as we beat them in extra-time 4-2 in the quarter finals.

    His goal to take it to 2-2 is at around 1 minute, 40 seconds (little before that).

  6. Re: When will brazil rating change happen??

    Its been on Brazil for over a week now will NEYMAR EVER GO UP?? Its soo long the australian happened in a couple of days!!

    Haha... Maybe they should have took their time for OZ, cause they got several ratings wrong... Still flabbergasted for several of the Perth players (Jamie Coyne, Harnwell... especially Velpahi going from 77 to 80 for how low they are and a lot of the GK's ahead of him). A couple of the Sydney players... Flores not going up.


  7. Re: A-League

    BUTwith respect ... the point of my post was "Are my stats wrong or is Adam Hughes badly treated??" He's played nearly ALL the minutes for Adelaide so he can't have been playing badly. I would have thought much more than plus1 to 78 or 16th in the Adelaide pecking order. 79 would have made him11th in the pecking order. 80 - 9th etc. etc. Squad cap was 85 but reduced when Slory went down to 83. Adelaide are 3rd at present & someone with less minutes from the bottom club has a bigger rise??

    lol I know right.

    One of the worse players in the A-League, Jamie Coyne, went from 78 to 79. LOL He'll probably get released at the end of the season, but they won't given Chris Coyne came back from China from his loan (his much better brother), so doing that would probably annoy him a bit. :rolleyes:

    Maybe I should be like the head of the A-League section.


  8. Re: A-League

    How has Flores not gotten a raise has been one if not the best player in the A-League this season :confused::mad:

    I was wondering the same.

    In my thread I wouldn't have had those Perth players rise - drop maybe.

    Soccermanager must have no clue, they base it on minutes or something?

    Perth have been woeful for where they were tipped to be, yet half their team gets raised.

    COYNE, Jamie - Arguably rated one of the worst performers. HOW he got a raise is beyond me.

    Howarth, Pellegrino, Harnwell, definitely not rises.

    Velpahi maybe a rise of one at most, but it's a joke he is ahead of GK's much better then him. Plenty have performed better.

    Jacon Burns going up 2????????????????????????? :eek::eek::eek::eek::confused::confused::confused:

    He's done nothing... Brisbane's and Adelaide's players should all be like 85 then if these players get raises.

    Hayden Foxe for Sydney plus 3 to 77? :confused: He was woeful before his injury and they were near/on the bottom.

    Totally bad ratings in my opinion and for people who actually see the games.


  9. Re: top rated youths for sale

    I currently have Gotze' date=' Smalling, Henderson, Reinartz, Arnautovic, Herrara, Menez, Mlapa, Fofana, Ciaran Clark, Roberto Pereyra, lacazette, casemiro, Edu Ramos, alberto perea and Grenier.

    I clearly have invested a bit of time building my youth team but I now really need to strengthen my first team squad.

    My question is who to sell and who to keep? I could use some of these players as bait to get better players but which ones are most likely to be in the 90 bracket first and which ones could go on to be star players 93 plus?

    Any help would be great

    Thanks[/quote']

    Definitely keep Gotze - was tipped straight after the World Cup to be a star and in the next WC. Going by this season he'll be a big star I'd say. Given Borussia is doing so well, he'll edge very close to 90 at the end of the season maybe. 88 at least... Depends on SM really.

    Smalling I'd keep as back-up, depends on who else you have because he's played good when he has this season and will be Ferdinand's replacement.

    Casemiro is a talent and will be getting a nice rise. Henderon is a definite keeper.

    Depends on you really - Not hard to figure out. Lacazette was apart of the quality u19 French team last season - as well as Fofana (a good leader).


  10. Re: A-League

    Having trouble making sense of some of the Australian re-ratings SM have done today:-

    Just one example: Osama Malik +4 to 77 hasn't played for Adelaide Utd (3rd of 11) yet' date=' but played 1305 minutes for [b']bottom club [/b]N.Queensland Fury (11th of 11)??

    Contrast with others played this season for Adelaide:- Adam Hughes played 2132 minutes out of possible 2269 for Adelaide but gets just +1 to 78!!! Something must be wrong as you didn't predict much more for him (79) but I checked the minutes seem to be right??

    Bear in mind Boogard (305mins) is 79, Slory (zero mins) is 83, Travis Dodd (887 mins) 82 rated, Galekovic (1993mins) 82, Cornthwaite (1383mins) 81, Leckie (749mins) +3 to 80, Usacar (78mins!) 80, Pantelis (1483mins) remains on 80. Don't understand :confused:

    Are my stats wrong or is Adam Hughes badly treated??

    They haven't done NQ, Wellington, Perth, or Sydney yet.

    Malik got an early release from his contract as he was going back to Adelaide next season anyway. Fury may be surviving for next season hopefully. Must have played well dispite result results? I put him down for 76.

    Players aren't just based on minutes... ;) Maybe a fair result, but apparently he's been much better then last season, decent (he was a dud for them most say). 79 could have been fair.

    Boo... He's been inured since early in the season.

    Dodd maybe should have went to 81 or even 80 - though Adelaide are going well. He's been injured on and off this season too.

    They only just signed Usacar.

    Pantelis on and off role really - bench from here on in...

    You should have bought Leckie as I suggested and in my thread. Depends what team you control and if you need the money (like controlling an A-League team or low division team).

    Decent for accuracy I'd say for the ones they have done so far.

    Think one of my next topics will be maybe like the stand-outs for the Olympic age group or the same for the Young Socceroos and Joeys - both in their age group WC's this year.


  12. Re: A-League 2010-2011

    Well well well, I was curious to see some of the rises and some would probably have their eyebrows' raised for Leckie and Kantarovski.

    Newcastle have missed him and apparently he had a knee reconstruction last month or the start of this month (I think he got injured at the start of December). :( Hopefully he is fine (if being maybe a little optimistic) by the u20 WC, we'll definitely need him.

    Leckie to 80 was from his quality before his knee injury and should come back this weekend possibly. As long as he's ready and firing later in the year. ;) Both of those two in fact. Both are future Socceroo stars - especially with their potential. Probably the two young standouts in the A-League pretty much.


  13. Re: A-League

    Though I assume you were more "optimistic" than the ones I have so far and before the ones up now? I was planning to a month ago, but... plenty on the mind and everything else. Mckay I might be over eager, but he is in career best form and made the Asian Cup squad after all for his efforts.

    Basically the Roar of this season have been dubbed "Barcelona". haha Probably the best quality looking team since the A-League started. Adelaide with Leckie are good too - plus the new players they have/will have. Gold Coast probably more defensive this season in style and Newcastle struggle with finishing without the injured British players.


  14. Re: A-League

    It has been revised' date=' you guys are completely right.

    I was too optimistic in the first ones and the others were pretty much based on what I'd done first, so were a bit off aswell.

    I hope now it's more accordingly to what should be.

    So keep coming those comments, good or bad :D[/quote']

    Just finished mine a bit ago after I had them sitting on file for awhile on request. You did decent, I just put mine up (in part so far) because I had been struggling with time amongst personal things too. The A-League has been at probably it's best standard, so being "optimistic" isn't such a bad thing.

    Leckie I had a rise to 79, despite his injury. I was leaning towards 78, but his performances have me hoping. He comes back this weekend coming apparently. He probably would have been in the Asian Cup if not for the dirty injury he got from the Thai player in Melbourne Victory... maybe just missed out of Kennedy was fit too.

    Maybe I might change him to 78, but he is quality and even made that list of players to watch out for in 2011. It had particular players, but didn't have Pato and the likes. Some seemed to make it, some didn't.

    I guess SM take into account talent and potential for some.

  16. Re: A-League 2010-2011

    Sorry about leaving it late, but I've had a lot on my mind and been busy a bit - hard to when struggling with some things. I'll finish it quick but here is a lot of the young batch.

    To be honest they should probably do the Belgium League first because the A-League has a bit over a month left I would assume, though the ratings you could more or less do soon.


  17. Re: The Young Stars To Look Out For In 2011

    Leckie will be one to watch out for in the u20 WC! He got injured sometime in November I think it was, a knee injury, but should be back sometime soon this month for the later end of the A-League season and for the finals. Hopefully he'll be in good form and fitness later this year.

    Highly likely to sign with Borussia Monchengladbach and his contract runs out after the A-League ends, so Adelaide I'm sure will try to do a deal this month. Celtic also have been linked with him. Borussia would be a nice stepping stone and seem like a decent club for young talent (especially wingers). Hope they stay up if he goes there!
