  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.
  8. Re: been offered neymar for pedro. help FAST
  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?
  14. Re: Bundesliga Ratings 2011/2012 (II) How good is Schmelzer? Could he ever be 92+?
  15. Re: Lukaku & Sturridge Difficult to say what Sturridge will get, at the moment I'd say he'll stay at 89 but it's only a matter of time before he gets the 90, if SM are feeling generous he'll get it next week. Lukaku has barely played since moving to Chelsea and will be staying 88, if not dropping to 87. He needs to go out on loan next season. As for choosing between them it's a no contest, Sturridge easily.
  16. Fans' Player of the season last season & arguably Chelsea's best player this season behind Mata yet I seriously doubt he'll rise to 93. If you look around the premiership there's only 6 defenders rated 93 or above and looking at league form this season you'd have to say: (Not counting Vidic because of injury) Patrice Evra < Ivanovic Ashley Cole < Ivanovic Kompany > Ivanovic John Terry < Ivanovic (debatable) Rio Ferdinand < Ivanovic (debatable but again I'd be tempted to say Ivanovic has been better this season) and if you look at the Chelsea squad there's 7 players rated 93 or above, these players are the core of the team. Ivanovic had a somewhat shaky start to the season being in and out of the team and playing centre back but in the last few months he has certainly established himself as one of Chelsea's core players; his rating should reflect that (Ashley Cole and John Terry I've already stated) Essien < Ivanovic Drogba = Ivanovic hard to compare them really but again I'd be tempted to say Ivanovic has been superior this season Lampard > Ivanovic (debatable) Torres < Ivanovic Cech = Ivanovic again hard to compare them really Although they're struggling domestically with Chelsea in the semi finals of the Champions League it is hard to say why Ivanovic (arguably their second best player) won't rise. I think the 93 rating is reserved for players that are very important to their team & unlike previous seasons Ivanovic has become that. The national team doesn't do Ivanovic's rating any favours but this should not restrict him to 92. In a not very convincing conclusion I'm going to stick my neck out and say that Ivanovic SHOULD rise to 93 but I doubt he will. (In fact John Terry and Ashley Cole dropping is more likely and would be somewhat justice) I fear Ivanovic is one of those players continually underrated by SM and has unjustly peaked at 92.
  17. Re: Aaron Ramsey or Jordan Henderson I'd agree with that order, Wilshere is the only one worth buying unless you're desperate.
  18. Re: Aaron Ramsey or Jordan Henderson Ramsey is the best of a bad bunch in this comparison.
  19. Re: Fluff's and Pazz' Ligue 1 Rating Thread Why is Bahebeck down for a +5 from 80 to 85 when he hasn't played for the PSG first team this year?
  20. Re: Yaya Toure to 94? Won't happen this season as Sh itty are playing Europa League but provided he carries his current form into next season & they do well in Champions League he'll get it for sure. @bmwe36 Doesn't Xabi Alonso have a decent chance of getting 95 at the end of this season?
  21. Re: Bundesliga Ratings 2011/2012 (I) Great work as always Phil & Timesle, many thanks. Is Lars Unnerstall work keeping?
  22. Re: Brazil Série A Rating Predictions Are either or Deigo Renan and Mario Fernandes worth keeping?
  23. Re: English Premiership Rating Predictions 2011/2012 Would I be right to think that a rise for Dzeko this time around is quite hopeful but is a serious possibility come the next changes? (Obviously providing he maintains his current form)
