    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.

    +1 at most not sure after that, I think a lot will depend of Montpellier’s performance next season.
    Djalo was outstanding against PSG shutting down Mbappe and Neymar which is no easy task, all in all deserves +2 in the summer.
    Also like you said in an earlier post, Clauss of Lens should get 85, seems like a logical next rating for SM.

    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.

    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.

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?

    Lorenzo Insigne; 15/16

    Lorenzo Insigne; 16/17

    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.

    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.

    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.

    I feel that based on other changes so far he will get the 92. Madrid's record & rotation of the squad yet his having obtained one of the highest minutes totals in the squad will both ensure he gets a +1. I wouldn't say he's been anything better than how he performed when attaining the 91 but consistency at big clubs is often rewarded by SM.

    Leverkusen have been underperforming, pretty terrible overall other than making the most of Spurs awful performances in Europe to progress & these games against Spurs who were far below their best, were the best of Leverkusens season so far. Kampl hasn't done much other than to be consistent in an underperforming side, to be rewarded for that is crazy, if he's consistently assisting the squad in underachieving if anything he's a problem arguably. He isn't of course & has actually been good again since moving there but to get a +1 & to now for example be rated the same as the likes of Salah & Dybala is madness.
    Someone asked about Timo Werner, he's been a star in the making since being handed first team football at Stuttgart whom didn't suit him & he quickly outgrew them & then stagnated, the move was questionable at first but is has certainly paid off! He has been immense this season, always involved, consistent & that is a consistent at a high level. Rahul in a previous post said an 87 & possible 88 which I completely disagree with, I believe he is a 88 & possible 89. Brandt at Leverkusen was given a +2 to 89.
    Timo Werner;


    Julian Brandt;

    Stats alone tell little of the complete story however they still tell a good story. Brandt has played for the national side & Werner is still waiting, won't be for long but hasn't yet featured for the first team. Brandt has has UCL exposure whereas Werner as of yet hasn't, of course his performances for Leipzig this season & the clubs as a whole means there are very good chances that they will get European football at the least. 
    Werner has played more minutes than Brandt over the last 2 seasons domestically, the current season they are practically level at this stage, the difference is that Leverkusen are underperforming & Leipzig are exceeding all expectations & then some & Werner is key to it.
    Both are 20, 21 in March/May so near on the same player however Werner has been given a more forward role for Leipzig which is arguably the reason for his greater involvement in creating & scoring this season but it's that understanding of his abilities which Ralph Hasenhüttl has exploited. 
    Overall based on UCL/European football exposure & national team call ups I would have thought Werner would get an 88 however I don't believe there is any reason why these 2 should not be rated the same. Werner is relied upon more & can be relied upon, he does what is asked of him, Brandt hasn't yet fit that bill. Leverkusen underperforming, Leipzig going above & beyond. 
    Either way, if you plan long term, I'm backing Werner to go further than Brandt but whether either can outperform Sane for Germany is up for debate but those 3, presumably Brandt AMR, Sane AML & Werner off of the striker as a #10/SS is not a bad looking 3 & they're all only 20!
