  1. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) Thanks for the good response. Does that 75% of games have to be ONLY League matches or does it come from all of the matches in total (league, cups, shields, etc...) ? It's too bad that someone from SM can't comment. It's the concerns that they put in place, and then they put fuzzy help documentation around it. Again, any clarification from them would be appreciated.
  2. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) Can someone from SM answer all of this please. The help documentation regarding this is ambiguous.

  4. Re: Player Concerns (please read the Online Help if looking for help) Help Please. Hoping someone from SM can answer this, because the wording in the help documentation is not clear. Do Cup and Shield matches count an equal weighting towards player concerns ?
  5. Re: Rank these Keepers regardless of rating And as far as the keeper list goes, IMO today the "top" keepers are split into camps (from best camp to worst camp). The best all around GK: Casillas The really good GK who is just a notch below: LLoris A big notch down from the level above, but a big notch up from the level below: Valdes, Neuer, Hart, Mandanda, & Howard Not quite there yet (on his way slowly up): Handanovic Not quite there yet (on his way slowly down): Wiese The massively over-rated old guys who are fading fast and are living off of past glories: Reina, Cech, Adler, Cesar, & Buffon The young guys who will be in that 3rd level within 2 seasons: De Gea & Ruffier The under-rated old guys: Friedel, Abbiati & Desanctis The guy who never really got a fair shake and is now fading: Frey The young guys who have peaked: Akinfeev, Muslera, & Ochoa Anyway, thanks again in advance for thoughts on my previous post.
  6. Re: Rank these Keepers regardless of rating Hoping for a little help with this. Might be off with my analysis. Curious why more people don't expect a drop from Pepe Reina (93) and Petr Cech (93). For the life of me I can't figure out why they maintain their ratings. Their best days seem long gone and SM ratings drops seem long overdue. These guys still do some things very well, but just from watching them over the years there seem to be very noticeable changes in their games. For instance Reina can no longer get down to save a penalty or get off the goal line to defend a cross into the box to save his life. And Cech is fading and gets more passive every year since his head injury. IMHO Lloris, Mandanda and Howard are all better than Reina and Cech in real life and they have SM ratings of 92, 91 and 90 respectively. Would like to hear rationale for SM keeping Reina's and Cech's ratings as I am sure I am missing something with my analysis of them as I don't watch them every single match. Also, if you were to rate them in real life, where do you think they are today? 93? 92? 91? 90? Thanks very much in advance.
  7. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Hi. I need some help on this please. I have a chance to get either Sebastian Coates @ Liverpool (CB, 21yr, 86) or Rodrigo Moreno @ Benfica (FWD/W, 19yr, 85) Whichever one I get is going to add depth with the hope that they will work their way into the starting XI in a season or two. *** Which one is the better prospect/player ? or is it 50/50 ? Thanks in advance.
  8. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Hi. I need some help on this please. I am making a play for CRonaldo. I am going to include a young high-rated winger, either DiMaria (23yr, 93) or Eden Hazard (21yr, 91) or David Silva (26yr, 94) as bait in the deal. Which one should I part with ? Thanks in advance.
  9. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Thanks for the advice everyone... I do have a feeling that NOW (+/- 3 months) is the time to sell him. AWA & Ben C, I have to spread rep before I can hit you up on these. Thanks again. Your comments are always appreciated by me.
  10. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Hi. I need some help on this please. I am thinking about cashing in on Vidic (30yr, 96). He's still great IRL, but now ripped his knee and is past the 30-mark. I am considering selling him now and not waiting around to figure out if he can bounce back from the injury IRL. I have the following young CBs as cover Kompany(93), Subotic(91), Sahko(90), Boateng(90), Bonucci(89), Alvaro Dominguez(89), Reinartz(89), Wollscheid(87). I know none of them can get to Vidic's 96-level, but who knows, maybe Kompany can give it a run. I am contemplating asking the following for my Vidic: Lahm (28yr, 94) and Muller (22yr, 93) Again, I would be giving up Vidic. Good deal or not ? or am I asking too much or too little. Thanks in advance.
  11. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Hi. I need some help on this please. I was offered an all cash deal for my Yann M'Vila. Cash is worth something in my set-up, but I am going to turn it down and possibly renegotiate for players. I have a Hamburg team that is very young and has a solid German and/or Bundesliga-bent towards it. And I have plenty of cover at DM (Schweinsteiger & Bender & Bender) Anyway I am contemplating asking the following for my M'Vila: His Romelu Lukaku (18yr, 88) + David Alaba (19yr, 87) + £££ for my Yann M'Vila (21yr, 90) Again, I would be getting Lukaku and Alaba and £££. Good deal or not ? Other young players that I could ask for are the following (I'd want 2 + cash) : Romelu Lukaku (18yr, 88) David Alaba (19yr, 87) Douglas Costa (21yr, 88) Julian Draxler (18yr, 84) Pierre-Michel Lasogga (20yr, 85) Alexander Merkel (19yr, 83) Raphael Varane (18yr, 86) Sergio Canales (20yr, 87) Looking for a deal that the other manager would possibly accept. His team just lost a 91-rated DM and his other high-rated DMs are pushing 30yrs-old, so I am assuming that he wants to get younger. I figure he is motivated to get M'Vila. Thanks in advance.
  12. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Hi. I need some help on this please. I am contemplating bidding for C Ronaldo. He's on a United team that is in last place halfway through the season in a competitive World Championship. They are a very front-line heavy team (C Ronaldo and Rooney), but are severely lacking all over the pitch. Here is the deal that I was thinking about: My Joe Hart (24yr, 91) and David Villa (30yr, 96) for his C Ronaldo (26yr, 98). Again, I would be getting C Ronaldo. I would HATE giving up David Villa as he's been an absolute BEAST for me (20+ goals every season), but I do have more than adequate cover for his replacement (Neymar). And for GK I also currently have cover (Ruffier). Good deal or not ? Thanks in advance.
  13. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Hi. I need some help on this please. I am bidding for C Ronaldo. And I know that the other manager is keen on young players. My original offer was my Sneijder (27yr, 95) and Hazard (20yr, 91) for C Ronaldo (26yr,98). The other manager countered with the following : my Sneijder and Neymar (19yr, 90) for C Ronaldo. For me, Neymar is a no go. I am trying to avoid putting him in a deal. So now, I am thinking about counter-offering the following : my Sneijder (27yr, 95) and Lukaku (18yr, 88) for C Ronaldo. Again, I would be getting C Ronaldo. Good deal or not ? And for what it is worth, here are some of the young good players that I have to possibly include with Sneijder in a deal for C Ronaldo: Pique (96), Busquets (94), Lloris (92), Sahin (91), Hummels (91), Hazard (91), Neymar (90), Chicharito (90), Ganso (89), and Lukaku (88). Thanks in advance.
  14. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Hi. I need some help on this please. I am bidding for C Ronaldo. (1) The counter-offer that I was presented with is my Pique (24yr, 95/96) and ManU's Chicharito (22yr, 90/91) for C Ronaldo (26yr, 98) I would be getting C Ronaldo. Good deal or not ? (2) I am considering counter-offering a straight swap of Pique (24yr, 95/96) for C Ronaldo (26yr, 98)... I understand the 2-3 point difference in rating, and the fact that defenders seem to top out at 96. I have ample cover @ CB. My current midfield in a 4-1-3-2 looks like this : .........ESSIEN/LASS HAZARD/SAHIN......SNEIJDER.......D.SILVA If I did acquire C Ronaldo and slotted him in that HAZARD/SAHIN position, would that be a far TOO-attacking midfield ? i.e. Do I even need him ? Thanks in advance.
  15. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Thanks again !
  16. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Hi. I need some help on this please. I am considering swapping Tevez (27yr, 94) for Pato (21yr, 92)... I would be getting Pato. Good deal ? Does the consensus on here think that either one of them will rise near term?
  17. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Hi. I need some help on this please. I am considering making a deal for nutcase Balotelli... Is this a good deal or not ? I give up Jerome Boateng(89) + Adam Johnson(88) = Balotelli(89) None of these players are/would be starters for me yet, but I am looking to offload my Berbatov and first looking for his replacement to pair with Higuain up front. Thank you.
  18. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Thanks very much for the responses on this. How about this ? Could I counter with SAGNA (RB-92) in a straight swap for LUIZ (CB-90), or would that be giving up too much? Generally I am loathe to trade away good high-rated RB/LBs seeing how there are so few of them, let alone even good RB/LB prospects. Not that it's that important, but the genesis of all this is that I was offered an ungodly amount of cash (£80Million) for my MERTESACKER (CB-93) in a set-up where cash has some value. I thought that he was extremely lucky not to drop these past changes. Got to thinking that I could sell MERTESACKER for that that amount, but only if I replaced him beforehand with a young high-rated CB riser such as LUIZ. I made an all-cash offer for LUIZ, that was countered with BERBATOV. Some of you guys think that offering BERBA (CF-93) in a straight swap is giving up too much. So now I am thinking maybe counter with SAGNA (RB-92) for LUIZ (CB-90) in a straight swap, and then go buy Glen JOHNSON (RB-91) from a manager who has had him TL since he/she picked up VAN DER WIEL. From what I've seen in real life with JOHNSON though, he's not as good as a defender as SAGNA, and I am not sure if he has a 92-rating in him ever. Just thinking aloud. Any more help on this is appreciated. Thanks.
  19. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Hi. I need some help on this please. Assuming that I have 89 & 90-rated cover @ CF, is the following a good deal ? I currently own BERBATOV (CF-93). I have been offered a straight swap for David LUIZ (CB-90). My feeling is that if BERBATOV was going to ever rise again, that this was the rating change for him to rise. With him staying @ 93, my feeling is that his ratings have found a peak. I realize that LUIZ is going to likely be a riser for years; however, I am not sure if I should be expecting more in exchange for a 93-rated player (particularly a 93-rated CF)? Thanks in advance. Any help is appreciated.
  20. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Hi. I need some help on this please. I am considering selling my Mats Hummels (90 going higher) I have been offered the following deals for Hummels: Sakho (89 going higher) + Mario Gotze (86 going higher) Sakho (89 going higher) + Sergio Canales (87 going higher) (1) Are either of these deals worth doing ? (2) If so, which one is best ? Thanks in advance.
  21. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... A BIG Thank You to everyone who contributed to the discussion about ARSHAVIN. It was really insightful and helpful. As it turned out I was able to get a better deal rather than swapping straight-up for DI MARIA (91 to 92). Rather than evaluating in-coming bids and then counter-offering, I decided to go on the offensive and aggressively bid on 94-92 rated players by offering my ARSHAVIN plus a modest amount of cash. Somehow I was able to swap AHSHAVIN plus a little cash for a younger and equally-rated SCHWEINSTEIGER (94). Thanks again. And also, thank you for the comments on the BALE-deal. I have a hard time rating how good he is going to eventually be (91?, 92?, 93?, 94?), but my thoughts of swapping HAZARD + CANALES for him does seem too aggressive. Thanks.
  22. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Hi. I need some help on these 2 deals please. I am considering a deal to acquire Gareth Bale (90) I would be giving up Eden Hazard (89) and Sergio Canales (87). I have more than enough cover @ AM and on the Wings. Good deal or not ? I have also been trying to figure a way to offload my Arshavin (94), but for a good swap. I have been offered Di Maria (91) in a straight swap. Good deal or not ? or should I hold out for a better deal ? Thanks in advance.
  23. Hi I am wondering who others think is the more complete RB today Liverpool's Glen JOHNSON or Ajax's VAN DER WIEL I am really at a loss to make a decision on this so any help is appreciated. I currently own JOHNSON (91), but am able thinking about swapping him straight up for VAN DER WIEL (90). JOHNSON performs well for my SM team, and I notice that Van Der Wiel performs equally as well for his current team. Curious what people think about them in real-life. Again, any help is appreciated.
  24. Re: Help With Deal(s) Thread... Hi. I need some help on this please. I am considering making a deal for Fabregas. I currently own Arshavin (94) and Walter Samuel (93). And I have more than adequate cover at both the Wing and CB positions. I am considering making a straight swap using both of those players to acquire Fabregas. (Arshavin + Samuel = Fabregas) Do you think that I would be offering too much for Fabregas ? Do you think that I need to offer more ? Any help is much appreciated... Thank you
