  1. The Deal: Mascherano = Ganso + Ricky Alverez + 10M I will be getting Mascherano - This is a no brainer right, because... 1) I dont rate Ganso as high as most (see him stuck at 89/90 for several years forward) 2) Ricky Alverez always looks slow and off the pace to me 3) I have well over 100M in the bank ***Am I missing something this seems to good to be true...
  2. Re: Mata or Nani i couldnt disagree more. 1) Mata is on a team that is willing splash cash to rebuild - Sir Alex always is hesitant (sneijder) 2) AVB is making Mata the center of his new team and rightfully so 3) He is younger 4) Sure changes will be abound at chelsea in the next year but hte players being shipped out (lampard drogba etc) have had little impact this year as it is as AVB seems to want them out or their rolls reduced 5) i am willing to be that he is amond the first 2-3 players on the team sheet every week. He is the only creative spark on that team that avoids direct pl
  3. Re: EPL Players Shock Just to make a few points for those arguing Hart/Neuer. 1) Bayern are considered by many to be the 3rd best contender for the champions league this season behind Real and Barca 2) City are not in the Champions League anymore and Hart conceeded a hefty number of goals for a 92 rated keeper in the competition 3) Neuer and the Bayern defense set a record for most minutes without conceeding a goal this season across all competitions - this stat alone gives me good reason to give Neuer his rise. 4) Not to mention he has now CLEARLY beat Adler to be Germany's #1 and I s
  4. Re: Brazil Série A Rating Predictions I know this may be a bit long winded but i think he (Mario Fernandes) could end up being a frequent part of the first team and lineup by start of the 2012/13 season, this is how i see it. First, Albiol will leave in Jan for a shot at making the Euro team and i think Carvalho cant be considered a viable option at Madrid regularly anymore with his injuries and age in general so i more or less consider them to be gone from the team, regardless if Carvalho stays another season id consider him a 4th choice next year. This gives Varane the chance to get more
  5. Re: Bundesliga Ratings 2011/2012 (I) I agree its early however i think at a certain point (As you said 92/93) there needs to be some players, despite their teams, that can achieve a rating that is closer to the league cap rather than a team cap within the league cap. Do i think RVP for example is just as important to Arsenal as Fabregas was - 100% so despite arsenals troubles early in the season a 94 is ok for me. Gomez on the other hand relies so heavily on everyone else around him (ribery robben kroos muller etc) that i can see it being a harder case to make for him to get the 94. Anyway
  6. Re: Bundesliga Ratings 2011/2012 (I) I think this arguement should end and i think this is the reason why. the ranking of almost all top strikers are wrong. (this goes for everywhere it seems the up and coming next group of elite players are being capped at 94 - Ozil, Busquets, Aguero, Higuain etc etc for the time being instead of doing "swaps" with the 94+'s) Messi/Ronaldo - correct two best players in football The decliners: Villa @ 96 - Not anymore - playing at a 93/94 level for me - very disappointed in a long term favorite player of mine Eto'o @ 96 - Inevitable drop in Russia Ibrah
  7. Re: Bundesliga Ratings 2011/2012 (I) I have been saying this since the world cup. its clear that soccermanager was adjusting Germany to be above the overall quality of Italy over the last year, and with these aggressive changes to the top teams in Germany I think its clear there is a desire to put Bayern (especially) on par with the top in England and put Dortmund on the level of the 4-6 teams in England. Overall quality wise i think this is more than fair. I think its clear the top teams in Spain a a solid distance ahead of other teams right now then i think you have a cluster of teams tha
  8. Opinions...I have Neymar in nearly all my teams with his decision to stay in Brazil until 2014 do you think its time i accept some of these 30-45M bids for him. He is only a starter one of my teams. If he will stagnate to +1 for the reasonable future...what do you think?
  9. Re: MAJOR LEAGUES REVIEW--How my team will change? Di Maria for me is 100% a +1. Leading the team in assists. he missed a few matches with injury but his stats this and last year deserve a 93 Matches: 24 Goals: 5 Assists: 13 Minutes: 1614 / 2160 possible
  10. Re: David Silva deal. For me this is tough in soccermanager terms. Silva i see being able to reach a 94 this season. he has been in top form since the second half of last season and his performances thus far this year have been superior to the end of last year. Also, Cavani will reach a max of 92 this year only assuming Napoli can perform admirably in the CL (similar to Mutu and Gilardino when Fiorentina made their run and they were 94 and 93 respectively) and i dont think they will. Similar with Sahin, he will face stiff competition at Madrid with Khedira and Coentrao along side Xabi A
  11. Re: Samuel Eto'o When the Eto'o to Russia rumors started I immediately bid him +8M for each of the following strikers: Ibra, Higuain, Villa, Aguero and Torres. I believe there is a ratings cap of 91 in the Russian league if im not mistaken. I would expect Eto'o to go 94/93 in the first ratings change in Russia and then 92/91 in the second. within a year i would expect him to be a 92/91 (i only give him a chance at staying 92 because Bruno Alves kept his 92 through one ratings change i believe.
  12. Re: Xabi Alonso trade They would both be squad signings. But both squad singings with the potential to become more and RB is a VERY weak position for me I have Ramos but his back up is nothing to brag about. I may look to use Xabi as bait for a better prospect but this deal is currently in the works and wanted to see what you thought. So thanks Banterman: repped
  13. Ill make a few points that i feel are important before i give trade details so you can all make a more informed decision. But I a looking to trade Xabi Alonso possibly 1) I play either a 3-4-1-2(a) or a 4-2-3-1( generally 2) I have several several central midfielders who are of a higher rating. Xavi, Fabregas and Busquets who are equal to him. Not to mention I have M'Vila Bender as youth players who are also of the same position and Pique who is also capable of playing DM if ever needed. 3) Generally i use the (a) formation Xavi and Fabregas as the 2 in the center and in formation ( i us
