  1. Glad it worked. Happy to help. Too bad nobody at SM does their job to be there for their customers. SMH
  2. Totally agree. Yet another example of how SM don't care at all about the game. Just making money. It's vomit inducting.
  3. Have you made sure you have the latest data pack selected? Not sure if it will help, but worth a try. Account Settings --> Community Data Packs
  4. Who do you mean? Dani Martin? He is definitely in the database. Rated 77.
  5. Neymar's location has no impact on Mbappe's rating. There is plenty of talent at PSG with or without Neymar.
  6. They really just don't care. SM does not care one bit about the game, just the profits. We keep playing anyway, so why invest in any actual improvements? But at least they don't even pretend to care. I mean, no easily found contact e-mail. Passed off soccerwiki to others to maintain. Let's face it. The SM business model is keep charging for the opening of custom game worlds, keep charging for people to select their preferred teams in Gold Championships, etc., and develop ways to charge people for the single-player version of SM and screw everything, and everyone, else. But have to give them cr
  7. Really have to see where he ends up next season. As an overall talent, I view him as very good, but a bit limited upside. Probably about a 92-93 at the absolute best. Think of Carlos Casemiro. But again, that depends greatly on where he ends up next season for his club. He's not helped by his Ivory Coast going out in the quarters at AFCON despite him playing fairly well over their five matches nor their struggles to be a consistent World Cup Finals participant. In the end, every deal is about what you are getting in return, the quality of your squad around the players in discussion and the qua
  8. If Trippier were really of the level, Spurs would not be so willing to let him go without a ready made replacement. Personally, I'd sell both and try to sign a player like Pereira, Lazaro, or Dumfries. All are true RBs, 25 or younger, rated 87 or higher and will likely see increases in their future.
  9. I like the Onana call, but would avoid Leno. Not playing CL, will see no time with his NT, and is stuck behind a truly awful defense that he will struggle to look good behind no matter how well he actually performs. Onana's issue is he is maxed out playing in The Netherlands as he is not even the #1 for his country, which makes no sense to me, but so it goes. As I shared elsewhere, I'd go after Maignan, who is an 89, in France, and will also be playing CL this season if looking for a young 88-91 rated GK.
  10. How high a ceiling mate? Gollini has great potential as he is an 87 right now, just got an increase and will be playing the CL this upcoming season. Nubel is an 86, but will be the #1 GK at Schalke this season. Farinez is an 85 and is rumored to be targeted by a few European clubs as he is already the Venezuela #1. A little higher rated is Lafont who will be back in France at Nantes and looking to take the next step forward as well as Maignan who is very good, has great potential, is already an 89 and will be playing CL football this season as well.
  11. Yes, out until mid-September at the earliest. His inability to stay healthy is why I am now willing to sell him if I get a decent deal brewing.
  12. Depending on how many players you have listed, bids usually start within a week at the most IF the playing season is happening. If you are in the pre-season period or post-season period, bids tend to dry up until the counting matches start again.
  13. I would take the MIlitao option in a heartbeat. Top young CB with ability to play RB as well. Best future by far of the three. And defenders are much more difficult to find than wings.
  14. Respectfully, we totally disagree. Bale can remain stable if he moves and plays. He will never get a rating rise again. No chance at all. And given his stance about moving, there is actually a chance he essentially done as a player.
  15. GK impacts are generally overrated. 2 points of GK rating is not worth Sterling or Kimmich.
  16. No. Mahrez has most likely peaked given his age and playing time at Man City, but he'll also keep his rating for a long time. Bale is a straight decliner as long as he prefers to sit the bench at Madrid instead of taking a pay cut and actually playing somewhere else.
  17. Haha. We've been begging for an improved match engine for years mate. And a host of other improvements. SM doesn't really care about any of it because we are all a bunch of saps that continue to play (and pay) despite our complaints. We don't leave, so they really aren't motivated to do much. It's really a farce.
  18. Diogo Jota. Tough situation though as there are so few true F(C) any more. But Jota is the best bet to go from his current 88 to a 90 for those 22 and under who are not already a 90 or higher. Oh, Lautaro Martinez as well, of course. Anything 87 or lower will almost definitely not get a 90 in one rating update.
  19. Let's not equate De Gea's form with country to his form with club. He was VERY GOOD for ManU last season as a whole with an avg. match rating of 6.52 for the season. This is right in line with his previous seasons as a whole.
  20. Hernandez was signed to play both CB and LB by Bayern not too dissimilar from Alaba though Alaba also plays in the midfield like Kimmich at times, who can also play CB. Hernandez does play LB for France as well. Really, Bayern is known for moving players all over to fit the needs of the day. haha
  21. Right. I do the same of course. My point though is that if you are looking for the long-term, both Laporte and Romagnoli could lose the ability to play LB, similar to how Koulibaly can no longer play RB after having that capability for what feels like years. Now, he is a CB only.
  22. He has been less than sharp with Spain, but absent a late season pair of errors, had a very strong season with ManU. In fact, Courtois was very poor with Madrid last season and plenty feel Navas should be kept as the starter there. As for Neuer, he has definitely taken a step back with his injuries as well. All are top GKs, but De Gea is the highest rated right now and the most likely to stay there of the three.
  23. Lucas Hernandez is the only one who was a true LB last season as Laporte and Romagnoli are primarily CBs. In fact, I don't recall Romagnoli playing LB at all last season unless the left side of a back 3. And Laporte played LB only if every other LB was essentially unavailable, so it was rare.
  24. How competitive a game world can it be if Courtois, Neuer, De Gea, Hazard, Griezmann and De Bruyne are all available? Anyway, De Gea and De Bruyne are who to sign IMHO. Perhaps Hazard or Griemann if you are in need of a CF instead of a CM.
  25. Definitely a good performance over the tournament. Does not warrant an increase. Keep an eye on him though. May increase interest from other clubs missing out on their primary targets this summer. P. S. Just another example of Arsenal not keeping the right players and/or giving them an opportunity to progress into the 1st team.
