  1. Re: 15m + Jack Rodwell = Obi Mikel?

    i dont think anyone that has a picture of suarez on their page should be taken seriously

    anyway id keep mikel' date=' he does a good job covering for essien and i dont think rowell is a particulary good talent, i dont think he will ever make 91 whereas mikel has the potential to go further[/quote']

    :confused:

  3. Re: Colossal 10k riser list

    For those that bought young Bozanic before he has a small rise (I just saw this thread now), well he played for the Central Coast (coming back to Australia) in the first game of the new season overnight. It was as expected, though I don't see the games as I don't have cable, but he'd be worth keeping until at least November or so when Australia normally has its first rating review.

    He will probably rise to 78 I am guessing if he shows good form, so he might be a keeper until then if you own a small team with him in it (or at season's end). ;)

  4. Re: Mid level LB Risers?

    Pereira Fabio of Man Utd will be become a starter over the next few years and has a huge amount of potential. He will replace Evra as he ages or leaves to go elsewhere. Although this option may be a bit too long-term for your liking. Also: Kieran Gibbs of Arsenal. Although he may be Clichy's understudy at the moment' date=' I feel that he will surpass Clichy and become a starter in a season or two. His potential is also massive.[/quote']

    Gibbs crossed my mind, but I was looking at more immediate players for this guy. Though if they have a future superstar factor about them (Fabio), then for sure.

  5. Re: Mid level LB Risers?

    Santon' date=' [b']A. Dominguez, F. Coentrao[/b] ;)

    Another two for sure.

    Also Makeev may be a chance at a small rise, but the others are better. Coentrao is a NT regular now and a small chance to sign for Liverpool (though Insua might still be staying with Aurelio signed again as well).

  6. Re: Mid level LB Risers?

    Vegar Eggen Hedenstad will get a small rise from 83 (lb/lm).

    Yaroslav Rakytskyy should get a rise from 86 later in the year (cb/lb).

    Santon is at 87 if he's available, may not rise in 2010 (well if Maicon leaves he will play even more). He is one of the top talented fullbacks at a young age in the world though (plays rb/lb).

  7. Re: A-League 2010-2011

    good thread but i think you need to make it abit easier to read' date=' make the who fisrt line of each paragraph in bold (Not just the name). And maybe use some colour e.g. colour green for risers, red for dropper, and maybe even put the bigger risers in a different colour or style. :)[/quote']

    I was going to do that a bit after, but I guess it's better to do it as I go.

    Mark Birighitti - 19 - 1991 - GK - 72 to 75

    Matthew Leckie - 19 - 1991 - RW - 77 to 80

    Iain Ramsay - 22 - 1988 - AM - NOT ON DB

    BRISBANE ROAR

    Luke DeVere - 21 - 1989 - CB - 78 to 79/80

    Luke is the first choice CB for the Roar and with Moore having headed off on his Greek expidition at the start of the year (now retired), he'll be wanting to press on and show he is one of the better young CB's in the league. He has leadership to bring to the team and for himself to a R.McGowan or Lowry, he'll have to show his worth against some of the quality forwards in the competition. If he can do this and also help get them to the finals, a rating increase to 80 could be seen.

    Calum O'Connell - 20 - 1990 - LB - 70 to 75

    Luke Brattan - 20 - 1990 - CM - 70 to 75

    Costa Barbarouses - 20 - 1990 - ST - 74 to 76

    Andrew Redmayne - 21- 1989- GK - 70 to 75

    Mitch Nichols - 21- 1989- AM/CM - 77 to 78

    Rocky Visconte - 20 - 1990 - LW - NOT ON DB

    CENTRAL COAST MARINERS

    Oliver Bozanic - 21 - 1989 - LM - 73 to 78

    Bozanic is a traditional LM type player, who just came back to Australia from Readining and various loans. His first touch is quite good for an Australian or younger player in general and is usually a pass. His running and body protection of the ball is good too and Bozanic is a chance to play more often then not for Australia, but with players like Oar and other young players likely to be ahead of him.

    I'm certain he'll be a regular through the whole season and if he plays to his ability should get a rise to say 78 for sure.

    GOLD COAST UNITED

    Gol-Gol Mebrahtu - 19 - 1990 - ST - 72 to 75

    Another African refugee, young Australian resident, who was apart of Gold Coast's sucessful debut winning NYL team. He will be competing with a role off the bench with Chris Harold (the golden boot from last season's NYL). Gol-Gol, Gold Coast will certainly be hoping he lives up to his namje in the future. Joel Porter and NZ superstar Shane Smeltz will be the two forwards starting.

    He's impressed and scored during the pre-season with Smeltz pulling out of his Chinese deal just in the last two weeks pretty much (coming back to Australia). He'll obviously get a rating increase to 75, but if his form continues during the season and he plays well then who knows.

    Adama Traoré - 20 - 1990 - LB - 75 to 78

  9. The A-League kicks off later this week and I'm sure many have been looking forward to it kicking for awhile. I'll kick it off during the week with a pre-season ratings prediction for player u25 (maybe u21 level instead) and a short statement about each player.

    This season will definently be a close season in the A-League. If Melbourne Victory don't bring in a decent striker they might struggle for goals; Thompson is out injured I think until later in the year.

    Right now I'll start with a few players from each and work my way through this week. I'll also now do the overseas players as well, like the Roar's young NZ forward (the few of them).

    GREEN - Likely to rise 5 or higher.

    ORANGE - Likely to have a small rise or could stay.

    GREY - Likely to stay.

    RED - Possible drop.

  10. Re: What are the best young up and coming CM`S?

    I don't know about the best, but out of some Australian youngsters, Antonis and Julius Doe Davies (Kantarovski is a DM pretty much).

    Antonis has been mentioned on here and turns 17 later in the year and got signed by Sydney FC this season.

    Julius is a young highly rated Australian (African refugee) at Bayern Munich and turns 16 in September I think it is. He already featured I guess often in their u17 team last season.

    A bit before Julius features obviously, if he does. Antonis is a chance for a bench role maybe.

  11. Re: 2 years from now ..........

    Many people underestimate him ATM but Thomas Muller is probably the best of them all. Starts for Bayern and Germany' date=' Probably the greatest youngster in the World Cup, Equal top scorer with Villa and Higuain and has upset so many good clubs like England,Argentina and [b']unfortunately Australia[/b]. He teams so well with Podolski and Ozil in the german lineup and is set up well by Schweinsteiger. But when he gats the ball he does something about it.

    Thomas Muller 88<93/94/95 in two years

    In four 93/94/95<97/98

    :(

    Muller has a great WC didn't he. What more could you ask for from a soon to be 21 year old, winning the golden boot. He wasn't in the German u21 (u23) winning team in 2009 was he? :eek: He has had a great rise this last year.

  12. Re: Terry Antonis - 16 Year Old Sensation

    I was going to do one on him, oh well too late.

    I read from someone that he has the ability to give a killer final pass, so maybe not Tim Cahill for the most part, but he has an eye for goal too.

    He was linked to Everton, Inter Milan, and Marseille when he was a bit younger, but the move was blocked by the FFA due to his age.

    He's probably a bolter for the u20 WC if we make it in the later part of 2011. I guess it depends on if our overseas players are being noticed and how they are fairing by then.

  13. Re: Theo Markelis- Valencia's future Wayne Rooney??

    Yeah it is hard to find information. Doesn't seem like much stats are kept and the Valencia site doesn't help. The person below said he is a bit like Wayne Rooney or maybe a David Villa. We might get to see him in the 2012 Olympics. ;) Though I am sure we can see him in action for Valencia maybe or most likely on loan somewhere soon.

  14. Who would be the best young GK to get?

    Adler, Akinfeev, Lloris, Neuer, Hart, other? I have Casillas and Asenjo, but am thinking of selling Casillas (in a custom league where there's plenty of players still available) for a GK with less salary. I guess it depends on if any of them end up at the Man Utd's of Europe next season.

    I'll probably still keep him as he was brilliant last season (his first season in my Chelsea team) and going great again. I'll see over the next week.

  15. Re: Theo Markelis- Valencia's future Wayne Rooney??

    I first heard of him before the middle part of last year (mentioned in my thread below). He isn't mentioned much over here and his date of birth is 1992 I am pretty sure, so he probably turns 18 sometime soon. We had a mostly home-based squad of u19's go over to South America recently, but Valencia did let him go over. I didn't see the games obviously, but he might have played in an AM role (maybe vertisle, and can play AM/Deep-lying FW/ST).

    I'm sure the Greeks will try to come calling, if not already. Hopefully he can impress over the next two years and make the Olympics and/or Socceroos depending how he goes.

    It stated somewhere that at one stage in 2008/2009 he had 14 goals in 17 youth matches (might have included a hat-trick against an u17 Belgium NT in a 4-1 win for some Valencia team).
