  1. Re: Liga BBVA Ratings Predictions thread Impossible to say at this point, with them paying so much money for him you'd think so long as he stays injury free & adapts well Neymar will be a starter by the end of the season. I trust with so much money being spent the Barca back room staff think Neymar is ready for Europe. This means less time for Pedro, Alexis & Tello. There's talk of Alexis being sold but he was playing better towards the end of the season, there's also talk of Pedro being sold to Monaco & Tello to Liverpool. Your guess is as good as mine as to how true these rumours are but only one of the three will be sold if at all. Not forgetting that there's also Deulofeu to go out on loan next season then return in the 14/15 and fight for a starting place. I imagine Neymar will get a lot of game time this season but whether he becomes a starter depends on his performances being better than Tello, Alexis & Pedro's. By no means is he guaranteed a starting place.
  2. Re: Serie A Rating Predictions 2012/13 Am I right to presume Chiellini is a stable 94 despite his injury problems?
  3. Re: Bundesliga Ratings 2012/2013 How's Javi Martinez been playing as of late? I know he started off badly but has he settled in a bit this season and started to justify his pricetag?
  4. Re: Ivanovic to 93? I made this thread last year http://forum.soccermanager.com/showthread.php?p=1985816#post1985816 Looking back some of my points were probably wrong but the majority still stand. So yeah I've been a long standing supporter of Ivanovic getting a 93 haha. He really does deserve it but knowing Soccer Manager I doubt he will.
  5. Re: Franck Bagnack Apparently he's a good prospect, he's still playing in Juvenil A and will get some game time for Barca B this season so long term in a competitive game world he's worth a buy BUT if he does ever make it to the first team it'll be a couple of years at least.
  6. Re: Next GK to hit 90? He means Joris Delle.
  7. Re: alex song Apparently he played very well, it's too early to tell but I imagine Song won't be in Barca's best 11 but he will certainly rack up the minutes this season. Barcelona bought him to replace Keita so he will likely be starting cup games and league matches against weaker teams, having said that Barcelona have good squad rotation so don't be surprised if you see him coming on as a sub in the most important games. In my opinion Song definitely deserved 92 whilst at Arsenal so I fully expect him to get it in the next changes, obviously depending on how much and how well he plays I can see Song maxing out at 93/4.

  9. Re: been offered neymar for pedro. help FAST Personally I would. Pedro hasn't played as much at Barca this season, when he's played it's taken a while to get back into it, he had a few shocking games but towards the end of the season seemed to have found his old self. There's a chance he'll drop to 92 but I think he'll probably stay 93 for now. Most importantly is the fact that Alexis Sanchez, Cuenca and Tello are all vying for his place. With one of Tello and Cuenca probably leaving before next season either being sold or sent out on loan I can see him getting back in the team but he's behind Sanchez and game time will be limited. Neymar on the other hand has been outstanding recently and has avoided coming to Europe too early, whilst Neymar flopping completely is still a very real possibility another season in Brazil and I think he'll be ready. When he comes to (assuming) Barca he's in the right place to shoot up the 90s and become one of the best players in the world. It's up to you really whether you think you'll still be playing the game in a 2 or 3 years time, if so then I'd definitely trade Pedro for Neymar. However in the short term Pedro is a solid 92/3 and I can't see him dropping too far any time soon. Neymar could get 91 in Brazil, at a push 92 but it'll be a couple of years before he's an equal rating, certainly has bigger potential though.

  11. I'm not even a Man City fan but surely?
  12. Re: Bundesliga Ratings 2011/2012 (II) Is it worth keeping Nils Petersen? think I read somewhere he's been wasteful when he's played and I can't see him being a starter any time soon
  13. Re: English Premiership Rating Predictions 2011/2012 Any Suprs fan willing to elaborate on how good Jake Livermore is? Could he become a starter any time soon?
