    ryan2007 got a reaction from KopStar in Dylan Tombides - New Kewell   
    Dylan Tombides

    Club: West Ham United
    Position: Striker
    Nationality: Australian
    D.O.B: 8 March 1994
    Age: 17
    Not on DB
    Dylan has made such an impact at youth and reserve level that just last month or so he was brought with the first-team to a training camp in Europe. Like other young talents from here, he is said to be "the new Kewell". Definitely rated to have the potential to be a star striker for us at this level. He's scored 3 goals in 11 starts, 18 total at youth league level in a competitive young team, but it's at reserve level where he has made his mark over the rest of their youth stars at West Ham. In the reserves he has scored 3 goals in 7 appearances (4 starts), which contains a recent double against Arsenal. Has that feel about him and looks like a second striker type.
    Apparently could have appeared for them recently if not for their current situation. Given their relegation fight I assume we'll have to wait until next season (mentioned in the media he could make debut at the end of season).
    We will be able to see him first hand in the u17 WC! As he'd be a certainty to be added to the group that qualified (plus others).

    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.

    Re: Neymar
    I wonder what his chances are of going to say 90 in their next changes. Probably an 89 I'd say for now, but he'll likely continue to be involved in the NT. Maybe he might be in with a chance. It'll be interesting once he makes the move overseas, how he'll go. Italy or Spain would be his best options (over England), over say a stepping stone like some tend to do.

    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).

    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.

    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).

    Jack Butland


    Jack Butland Stats:

    Team: Birmingham City (currently youths)
    Position: Goalkeeper
    Nation: England
    Age: 16
    Foot: Both
    Height: 6ft 4in

    Jack Butland is young youth goalkeeper currently playing for Birmingham City. He comes from Bristol but Birmingham City snapped him up because of his potential. He currently plays for England U17's and this week kept clean sheets against Portugal and Spain to help England win the Algarve Tournament this week.

    He has been described by alot of people as the future England Number 1 Goalkeeper. He has already been talking to reporters about Englands 2018 world cup campaign because it is thought that by that time he will be Englands current goalkeeper.

    He has also been described by his Birminghams youth coach as a future England Number 1. He also said “He kicks it a mile with both feet, he can take goal-kicks off left or right foot, it’s scary. He’s 6ft 4in, he’s got hands like buckets and he trains magnificently.

    He could also feature for Birmingham in about 1-2 years time as current Birmingham City keeper Joe Hart is on loan and after next season is expected to return to Manchester City, Maik Taylor is nearly in his 40's and will be retiring soon and Colin Doyle will probably be second choice as his not the best keeper we have.

    Keep your eye out for him as he may be soon the next star of the premier league, lets just hope Birmingham City dont earn quick cash of him by selling him to a top club for around £100,000 as in time he could be worth millions. Thats what happend' to David Seamon, yes, Birmingham City used to have David Season.

    So, finally, his not on the database obviously and i posted this not so you could wait every day for him to play for our first team so you could capture him first, i posted this because i just wanted to show you lot that soon, he is going to be world class and then in the future i can say . . . i told you so.

    You heard it here first.

    Re: Offical Australian Ratings
    If he does get a rise it will be to 79 or 80 (80 seems to be a rating for the better young A-League players who go overseas, eg. Nathan Burns). I am not sure if he's been as good as last season, but he was nominated for the Young Player of the Year for December (first season with these awards). I think he's played a fair bit at CB, which is out of position for him. Though on SM it seems a lot of Aussie's are listed in the wrong position (AM for him).
    He's probably more of a DM or DM/CB, but there's a couple of players in Newcastle who are 80 or higher and he's a better player then some. 80 (or at least 79) isn't out of the question, but I guess it depends on how the rest of the season shapes out for him.
    I think he may hope for overseas's interest after the season ends in March for the A-League (he turned 18 on Wednesday).
    He's also smart and it stated in an article that his preferences were nuclear medicine, psychology, architecture and construction management.

    He is a striker who plays for the Melbourne Victory, after being referred to Victory from good mate Ryall (who is off to Sydney). Despite his very limited chances for the A-League (only 2 game in 2 seasons), his impressive NYL season (this is the first NYL season) has all fans waiting to see how he fairs. He scored an impressive 10 goals in 11 games for the NYL (after missing 7 due to the u19 campaigns, and the team finishing 7th/8th). He finished 3rd for goals behind Adelaide's Monterosso (13) and Queensland midfielder in Grossman (11). Though both played the majority of games, while Sydney FC's Rooney scored 9 in 8 games after having a brief signing for Newcastle as an injury replacement at A-league level.
    He is currently rated 68, given he didn't play a game at his level, am not sure if he will get a rating increase from the NYL performances. Though his strengths are speed, positioning, and his ability to use his body.

    Finally going to start this second section. I'll start with the forwards.
    David Williams
    (born 26 February 1988)



    He is a ST/RW (I assume mostly a RW right now) playing for Danish Superliga side Brøndby IF. He has played for Australia at several levels (including one game in 2008 for Australia)., and 2-3 years ago was labelled as "one of the best prospects we have had in Australia since Harry Kewell." Though he has had injury trouble the last two seasons, he is considered to have a bright future for Australia and has the speed and potential to go places. Over the 3 seasons he has spent there he has played 34 games and scored 4 goals.
    He is on the DB and currently rated 80 and would stay there.
    25th July: He was recently loaned out to one of the two A-League clubs in NQ Fury (after an outburst).
    Christian Esposito
    (born 1990)



    He is a recently discovered soon to be 19 year old ST who is currently playing for Albinoleffe's u21 side (he has played one game for the seniors). He lives with his mother in Italy, while his dad is in Australia. He is considered to be a possible big talent and his dad stated, "Playing for the Socceroos would be a dream for him." AC Milan are said to have interest in him.
    He is not on the DB, but hopefully during early next season he should be.
    Ryan Gazet Du Chattelier
    (born 17 February 1991)



    He is another unknown 18 year old Australian ST playing overseas, who was playing for Portsmouth's youth team last season. He also featured at tier 6 club Bognor Regis Town on a work experience loan (scoring 2 goals, games unknown). He scored 3 goals in 9 games for Portsmouth's youth team and played one game for the reserves. He probably wouldn't be considered for the u20 WC squad this year, but should be considered over the next two year's depending how much the FFA know about him.
    He is not on the DB, but I assume he could go on it considering his loan.
    Apostoli Giannou
    (born 25 January 1990)
    This 19 year old ST is currently playing for Apollon Kalamarias FC in the second tier of Greece. Not much information is known about him given the Greek Leagues don't seen to have much stat coverage, but he did appear also at Greek YNT level (and Australia YNT level too). He is said to have the potential.
    He's not on the DB, but could be.
    Brent McGrath
    (born 1991)

    He is a ST playing for Brondy's u19 team. Again it's hard to find information on these players from these foreign leagues. He made the u17 Australian team before he turned 15 and still has a bit over two years to go to appear at u20 level.
    He is not on the DB.
    Robert Stambolziev
    (born 1990)

    Robert is a ST/Winger who played for mostly the academy of Bristol City, but played a few games for their reserve team. This Australian born talent also has the possibility to represent Macedonia and Greece and after missing out on two tournaments late last year (selection politics maybe), was seen to be upset about this and wanted to pledge to Macedonia (a possibility). Though Australia tend not to use most of the talented overseas players in these pre u20 WC tournaments. Last month he was in a squad for an u19-u20 involving Australia, Egypt, and various youth teams form the Netherlands, Brazil, Liverpool, and others (scoring 2 goals against FC Twente u19's).
    It is not sure if he will sign a professional contract with Bristol City, as there is possible interest with a Greek club and others. He scored 9 in 23 for their academy team and 0 in 5 for their reserve team.
    He is not on the DB.


    STILL TO DO:
    Jack Watts (Barnsley, not on DB)
    Bryan Soane (Balestier Khalsa, not on DB)
    5th/6th tier: Cameron Jones (Tamworth FC, not on DB)

    Guys, this is the way Gold Championships work. Plain and simple. Money is useless trying to by other players, so you have to spend it snapping up the best young talent to come through.
    For example, the day before Neymar came out Lukman HARUNA came out as well. Many have him dubbed the next Essien. He's already starting for the first team Nigerian team. In GC11, I bought him for 41mil with TSV Munchen 1860.
