  1. Couple of good shouts those, Boey taken unsurprisingly once again but Djalo is free & has definitely played enough at RB to warrant the position for the foreseeable.
  2. You'll be surprised to hear that Rensch is taken, no shock, hold him in a few already. Mingueza taken already too. Bryan Reynolds isn't a bad shout though. Dallas also, sadly with an age limit in the GW though he's a no-go. Cheers, gents. Interesting that there's a number of LBs but fewer RBs in this low bracket on the rise, to my knowledge off the top of my head anyway. Think I may have to short term go low-key with a Pipa at Huddersfield (80-82+) or similar. What do we think Clauss at RC Lens will go to? Might be my punt, feel like he's a +2 maybe.
  3. Anyone got a RB on the rise? Looking for a right sided equivalent to a Paulo Otavio or Mitchel Bakker mentioned above, someone that's a low 80 but has played all season in the top 5 leagues. Being lazy, I'll do my research on it this afternoon hopefully but if anyone has some right off the bat, happy days.
  4. Bakker has the 6th most minutes in Ligue 1 of all PSGs players this season, I certainly wouldn't classify that as 'here & there'. Here's the difference. One plays elite level European football & in a more competitive domestic league, at a club where he competes against some top players for a starting spot & gets plenty. 37 appearances, 2251 minutes in all comps, the games he missed fairly recently were when Pochettino took over at PSG, a period whereby the known reputable & older player got the nod, seems to be different now perhaps as he gets minutes no matter. Then there's a young lad, playing in a poorer league that has a reputation for blooding youth & creating huge sell on fees, a good I would guess 66% might be successful but 34% are not. Don't get me wrong, Mendes looks a huge talent but really what is he showing us? His competition in the squad is far lower, the coach bloods youth left, right & centre, the standard in games is far less. "Hands down Mendes is better" - I'm not sure you can make that conclusion even if you have watched plenty of both, which I personally have too. Bakker is a completely different, build/physique & stature, his game is very different. My money is that Mendes will be a better in-possession left back but Bakker the better out-of-possession. Bakker to 87, Mendes to 85 in this coming review I'd predict in terms of short term changes.
  5. In assuming both go to 78-80, the younger would be the more valuable, I'd assume, therein Luiz Junior the pick for value increase. It might however be more straight forward for Oelschlägel to go to 80 when he's 75 now as opposed to Junior being 73. I'd imagine that the Eredivisie & Liga Nos would be similarly weighted as 2nd tier leagues.
  6. Impressed this is still going @Sir Rahul! Fabio Silva maybe a +2 to 84, 5x 90 mins isn't the best this season but a total of 1323 minutes across all competitions isn't too bad to be fair to him. Struggled at times but for 18, every chance to succeed in the Prem, 84 seems right. I can't say too much for Vitinha in comparison. Some 569 minutes in all comps & just the 1x 90. When he's played he goes missing for me, hides a little in the game, not impressed, one I expect will not be a permanent Wolves player as I believe he's on loan there right now. 80 rated, a +1-2 would be the most I'd hope for but wouldn't be surprised to not see him reviewed also, depends if he's being reviewed on age + minutes versus performance level.
  7. It appears so, they just missed a good 40% of the league because their knowledge of Serie A has always been horrendous.
  8. We've had some bad reviews, rather consistently for 2/3 seasons in fact but the speed of this review... might be the worst ever.
  9. Fantastic deal for Icardi, rumours again of moves to Madrid & Chelsea for example. Despite his exclusion from the Argentina squad due to 'Messiah Messi' ruling over everything, he's a class forward, guaranteeing goals, certainly in a 92-95 bracket for a few years yet. Chiesa is a fantastic addition also, one for covering the loss of Traore but more so upon his potential for a big move and subsequent ratings that will come from exposure to football at greater levels such as the UCL. Big future ahead of him, hopefully as big if not bigger then his fathers.
  10. 2 years later, the chat has had one of its disappearing acts once again, now for a good 48 hours.
  11. Just bumped a topic which was started by an admin/dev over 2 years ago, asking for ideas, suggestions, improvements for customs. Nothing has been implemented since, no posts since. Seems to me that despite the persistent adverts, pop ups for money making schemes, SM could care less what the players within SM Worlds are doing. Don't get me wrong, this hasn't changed for years now, SM Worlds has been put on the back burner for a long time but it would be nice to know if anything will ever be done to improve it again. Fact that we're currently overseeing the latest review of major leagues for at least 3 years if not longer tells a story.
  12. A topic created by an admin/dev over 2 years ago, never a reply since, plenty of ideas & nothing has been implemented within the last 2 years either from my knowledge. Why has SM Worlds been forgotten about & left for dead? Custom Worlds still thrive, are still where especially long term players of SM reside, myself for example starting in 2006, still playing Custom Worlds now. Still we are forced to apply & manage advanced rules & features ourselves as nothing has been implemented to help us do these things, has SM Worlds been left to die?
  13. Lorenzo Insigne; 15/16 Serie A + Europa League + Coppa Italia 42 appearances. 13 goals. 11 assists. 2856 minutes. Lorenzo Insigne; 16/17 Serie A + Champions League + Coppa Italia 49 appearances. 20 goals. 12 assists. 3767 minutes. This is 100% a mistake if SM have decided he shouldn't rise however surely he has just been missed as on statistics alone he is a certain +1/2 candidate. Take into account his improved general value to Napoli on the pitch this season away from the goals & assists, he is essentially a top 3 / key player within a side that has once again challenged for the Serie A title & gained a UCL entry once again. Ciro Immobile; 15/16 Serie A + La Liga + Champions League + Copa Del Rey + Uefa Super Cup 29 appearances. 9 goals. 5 assists. 1673 minutes. Ciro Immobile; 16/17 41 appearances. 26 goals. 7 assists. 3517 minutes. Ciro is back in Serie A & at his best, in my opinion the reason why Lazio finished 5th & the side really should have finished 4th if not for a collapse from the side in the final 3 games. His goals for Lazio have been priceless, there are 5 players that scored more than him in Serie A this season & all bar Belotti are at least 2 ratings higher than he is, Ciro has surely been missed as he is certainly of 91 quality in comparison to his rivals in Serie A but furthermore strikers across Europe who are currently rated 90/91. Of all the generous rises there have been in Serie A over the past week or two, these two players not receiving rises would be ridiculous.
  14. Cancelo to Barcelona is confirmed, he will join in the summer. Valencia flirting with relegation after what has somehow been a further decline in form, performance, shift of staff, additional managerial changes & so on, a club in turmoil to be honest & the pressures of the fans really don't help either, the quantity of coaches the club have been through due to deluded opinions that their club should always been challenging for the title only harms them. Anyway, despite the agreed move to Barcelona, which is a great move for both I believe, he will still only get a +1 at the most which is due to his consistency in the side over the past couple of seasons, various positions covered etc, I believe he's attained some of the most minutes for Valencia this season. He hasn't been getting forward & assisting as much as before though but in general Valencia haven't done anything as good. 3 games for Portugal since they won the European Championships in the summer so he will presumably get +1 only at this time.
  15. He's a CB, goals & assists mean nothing. In La Liga he has around 950, 11 appearances & 10 full games. 3 clean sheets & 9 goals conceded total. Across all competitions I believe it's close to 1900 minutes but the stats that matter for him are more so the average of 1.7 tackles per game, 1.9 interceptions & only 0.4 fouls. 4.1 clearances & 0.8 blocks. When you compare that to Ramos; 1.8 tackles, 2.0 interceptions & 1.1 fouls they're in close competition whilst Ramos clears less due to his being a superior ball playing CB with 3.0 but he has half the blocks of Varane as he averages 0.4 per game. I would still say that Varane is fairly weak in regards to tackling, but he's aerially strong & not afraid to intercept, he reads the game pretty well. As mentioned they're two different types of CB however myself I prefer defenders that defend. Bonucci & Godin over a Pique or Ramos everyday, I don't need defenders that want to score goals, break lines into the midfield & get out of position which leads to my side being vulnerable on the counter attack, other players can do those jobs. Varane is closer to the mould of Bonnuci & Godin than Pique or Ramos but that's the good counter balance for the Madrid pairing & thankfully with Casemiro to cover Ramos they're efficient & that's been a big part of Zidane' record, ensuring that the attacking fullbacks & Ramos venturing forward is covered by playing a midfield with the duties that in the past Madrid have never really valued. Overall though, either way Varane is a +1.
