  1. Re: Bundesliga Ratings Discussion Kroos to 94 perhaps? He'd walk into any team in world fitba.
  2. Re: Liga BBVA Ratings Predictions thread Does anyone know why Miranda hasn't got at least a rise to +1? He's been easily in the top 4 or 5 CBs in the Spanish league for the past 2 seasons.
  3. Re: English Premiership Rating Predictions Doesn't look like it and must say I'm surprised on both counts. Both voted in the EPL Team of the Season and both have grown into hugely important assets for the two dominant teams in the EPL in the last few years.
  4. Re: Brazil Série A Rating Predictions Doesn't appear to be. Scored twice last weekend and has racked up plenty of minutes. Wonder what's up.
  5. Re: Serie A Rating Predictions 2012/13 Guys, I personally think he's a class act and one of my favourite players, but what are your thoughts on the chances of Montolivo hitting 92? Italian first 11 mainstay and been fantastic for Milan in a transition season for them I would think 92 is much deserved, but not 100% SM will grant it.
  6. Re: Brazil Série A Rating Predictions I am not trying to silence you my friend, but an entitlement to hold an opinion does not mean all opinions are equally valid. Merely that each of us holds the right to express it. I would prefer not to offer opinions as sweeping as yours on players I don't tend to watch. So for example, I will always defer to your opinions on Brazilian players, rather than me telling you that a certain player from your league is standard, without the evidence to back it up. To call a player of genuine quality a 'standard' player is factually inaccurate, regardless o
  7. Re: Brazil Série A Rating Predictions Carrick has been a far better player than Gerrard, Lampard and Wilshere this season - he's been the best CM in the Premier league. To call him a 'standard player' is again showing your ignorance. If you don't watch much premiership football you shouldn't really be offering such strong opinions on his quality.
  8. Re: Brazil Série A Rating Predictions Neymar is a great talent, as is Carrick. Simple as that. No need to dismiss one to defend another.
  9. Re: Brazil Série A Rating Predictions Indeed. A comment that was either aiming to be inflammatory, or was just stultifyingly ill-informed
  10. Re: Brazil Série A Rating Predictions Obviously Neymar has long been touted as a future star. Let's leave that one alone - clearly has the talent, but unless he moves to Europe soon he won't move on to the next level. He shows in most International matches against top quality European sides that he is quite easily subdued by tighter marking. It was positive to see him have more of an impact against Italy, but my point is valid for all matches prior to that. He is afforded much more room in Brazil (and South America in general) to run at defences than he would be in Europe, allowing him to

  13. Re: English Premiership Rating Predictions 2012/13 To put things in context Montpellier's best players rose for a much more meager achievement last year than Chelsea's. I know you are a prime SM apologist but you should be able to admit on this occasion that they simply got this one wrong. He is 92 quality and deserved a rise based upon his ability and achievements since his last rating change.
  14. Re: English Premiership Rating Predictions 2012/13 Ramires deserved a 92 for being integral in Chelsea's CL triumph last season. That alone really warranted a 92, not to mention the FA Cup triumph and the fact he is an important player for Brazil. Many teams had rises based upon their achievements of last season, although this didn't seem to happen with Chelsea despite the huge gap between PL reviews.
  15. Re: English Premiership Rating Predictions 2012/13 If they don't retrospectively give Ramires a rise, I am going to implode
  16. Re: English Premiership Rating Predictions 2012/13 No rise for Azpi or Ramires is very surprising
  17. Re: English Premiership Rating Predictions 2012/13 I hate the swine, but Bale definitely deserves to be at 93. He's easily one of the league's best players and has been improving steadily year on year. To suggest otherwise is stultifyingly ill-informed.
  18. Re: English Premiership Rating Predictions 2012/13 I've seen a general consensus that Zabaleta will get a +1 to 90. Surely he deserves a 91. Particularly if they give Azpilicueta a +1 to 90, which I expect. Their comparative achievements since major leagues were last reviewed are hugely weighted in Zabaleta's favour.
  19. Re: Bundesliga Ratings 2012/2013 Surely Dante has reached his peak, no?
  20. Re: Bundesliga Ratings 2012/2013 "Cancerwiki" Oh. My. God.
  21. Re: The Fluffy Ligue 1 Thread You may hate him but you have to admit, an injured Zlatan is a pretty serious thing for any team.
  22. Re: The race to reach 90 - Second Edition Name: Leo Baptisto Club: Rayo Vallecano Age: 20 DOB: 26 August 1992 Country: Brazil Rating: 77 Position: AM©, F(RLC)
  23. Re: The Fluffy Ligue 1 Thread Would hope so, but a +9 would be very generous. He really needs to keep up this form until the reviews for that to happen. Toulouse are exceeding expectations a bit this season, considering their defensive losses in the transfer window. If they can stay in the top 6 and Ben Yedder keeps starting and scoring then 84 is possible. Would love to see it, as I have him and like him a lot. Let's wait and see.
