Re: Riferimento: English Premiership Rating Predictions
Tiote has been far from his best this year. You only have to see yesterdays match to see that. Gives the ball away cheaply in dangerous situations. I think he would be more likely to drop than rise. But that is only my opinion.

Re: Riferimento: Re: Riferimento: Bundesliga Ratings 2012/2013
Harnik is a good player, but his form can sometimes be in and out- he could be brilliant one game and poor the next. I'd still buy him because he is a good striker who could help Stuttgart into Europe once again with his goals. However, I would not expect any rating increase for now.

Re: The New Players Thread
I'm gonna come good on my promise earlier
A few may recognize him from Fm2012
Name: Vitinho Coelho Santos
Date of Birth: 9th October 1993 (18)
SM Rating: 75
Potential Future Rating: 88-90
Vitinho is a young striker who play for Brazilian Serie A side Botafogo. In total he has 93 mins under his belt but not in Serie A competition he has played in the last 2 Carioca 1 tournament for Bota playing twice and scoring in his first game in the 2011 year of the Carioca.
Basically I'll say what your buying is potential, he is a very good attacking player from the video's i've seen and it's only a matter of time until he breaks through in my opinion.

Re: 60-74 risers (divided into leagues)
CHENCINSKI, Tomer (70>77) and OLSSON, Jakob (73>76) rose today... Now waiting for MBUTA rise (he should go to 75) for Sweden... Sincerely Larsson rise is pretty difficult, as he's free agent right now, but let's see... Grab Hejret and Klesnil for Czech review
andre97 reacted to Stuart H in Nick Powell
Age - 16 (born 23rd March '94)
Position - AM/Fwd
Club - Crewe Alexendra
Appearances - 2 sub showings this season
Squad Number - 25
NOT ON THE DATABASE
There's always a lot of hype surrounding teenagers making appearances in the senior side of any club. Powell looks a little bit different though...
This boy has already attracted the attention of Arsene Wenger at Arsenal. Dario Gradi (Crewe manager) has said none of his academy players are for sale and refused a name-your-price offer for this lad. The last 16 year old to begin his career at Crewe at 16 and refuse the Arsenal overtures was Dean Ashton who, IMO, could have been an England regular had it not been for his injury record.
Powell has already featured for England in the youth levels; winning in an U17 round robin tournament with Australia, Turkey and Portugal. Gradi has likened him to Steven Gerrard as he can play all over the park. He has great technical skill and can play with both feet though isn't too strong in the air. His best position is just behind the main striker.
Anyway... we all know that pictures speak a thousand words, and videos are even better He's wearing the #8 shirt
andre97 reacted to YesEvil in Jordan Henderson
Re: Jordan Henderson
So what he had a dissapointing season? Downing performed worse! He has plenty of room to show he is up to it. He can still show us that he is able to play world-class football.
This coming season is really where it all gets decided for me, Originally I hated Lucas because he was always the one who seemed to make the bad challenges (along with Masherano). But hey look now Lucas is an integral player to Liverpool, and he was sorely missed when he got injured last season.
Potential 92 or more. Depends on Liverpool really, he can shine for them, but the whole team has to do well in the end.
andre97 reacted to arsenalrocs in Mattia De Sciglio
Mattia De Sciglio
Club: AC Milan
As far as talent goes, Mattia De Sciglio has one of the most. Blessed with pace and good with both feet it is easy to see why. De Sciglio made his debut in a Champions League match coming on as a substitute against Viktoria Plzeň. He went on to start another Champions League appearance. Making his first appearances in the Champions League speaks a lot about the faith Allegri has in him. 6 months later, De Sciglio made his Serie A debut starting the match against Chievo. In his next two games he came on as a sub and started the other.
In a match against Inter Milan, De Sciglio showed great courage with his foraging runs and great tackles. Even though it was a Milan Derby De Sciglio was not overwhelmed by the occasion and showed good positional sense and energy. He is noted by many for his great tackles and courage in tackling in risky areas of the pitch.
On the international stage, De Sciglio has represented Italy for the U-19s, U-20s and the U-21s.
Many are tipping De Sciglio to be the no. 2 RB to Abate next season, with some even tipping him to take over Abate. With it being made known that Allegri has faith in De Sciglio, he is sure to make more appearances over the course of the new season. De Sciglio was also deployed on the left once by Allegri and he did a fine job. His versatility on either wing could prove to be very useful for Allegri next season.
Good tactically, humble and with a strong desire to learn, De Sciglio could well be on his way to success at Milan. Thanks for reading and keep checking back for updates on De Sciglio!
andre97 reacted to Doonhamer in Mitchell Weiser
MITCHELL WEISER | 18, Koln
Date of birth: 21/4/94
Plays like: Dani Alves & Lukasz Piszczek
The 2011-12 season has been a resounding success for Weiser, who made his mark for Koln after filling in for Ducksch as a right-winger in the Under-17 national team last summer. Ambidextrous, athletic and physically gifted, but with the technique and creativity of an attacking player, the 18-year-old is a right-back has the ability to play in defence and in midfield on either flank. He recently made his Bundesliga debut for Koln, but his days in the Rhine may be numbered: Koln boss Claus Horstmann vowed to extend the player's stay past 2013, but Kicker recently reported that Weiser had agreed to terms of a move to Bayern.
If true, Koln will have the option to sell in the coming months, or risk losing their star talent on a free transfer when his contract expires next summer.
I can confirm that Weiser will now join Bayern after the clubs reached an agreement. Currently rated at 75 on the Database i'd definitely sign this lad!

Re: The NextGen Series
Players to watch out for
There are many players to watch out for that played in the inaugural season of the NextGen Series. This is a list team by team of those to watch out for that have shown the most promise over the past season. If they are on the Soccermanager database then they will be in bold with their SM rating in brackets next to them.
Davy Klaassen (75)
Lesley De Sa (75)
Mickey Van der Hart
Mats Rits (77)
Ajax reached the final of the NextGen series and the duo of Davy Klaassen and Viktor Fischer were instrumental in that effort. Klaassen has since played in the Ajax first team whilst Fischer is still waiting for the call up, although he is described as the best player since Eriksen to come through Ajax's academy. Mats Rits played a couple of games in TNS after moving to Ajax from Beerschot and is highly regarded within the club. Lesley De Sa and Mickey Van der Hart also impressed me especially keeper Van der Hart in the final, who made a string of very impressive saves.
Gary Gardner (82)
Gary Gardner is without doubt the standout player in the Aston Villa U19 set up. He captains and leads the team magnificently and was arguably one of the stand out players of the entire tournament. He has played regularly in the Aston Villa 1st team. Due to injuries, Samir Curruthers has also played in the 1st team following some impressive performances in TNS, while Jack Grealish and Jordan Graham are regulars for Ireland U17 and England U17 respectively. Jordan Graham especially is making waves within the club, with officials very excited about his progress.
Jean Marie Dongou (75)
Alejandro Grimaldo (75)
Bare in mind with the Barcelona setup, the majority of their outstanding prospects bypass the U19 team and play in the Barca B setup. So players like Deulofeu, Sergi Gomez and Alcantara Rafinha haven't taken part in TNS. However Dongou has made waves since appearing in the tournament, scoring eight goals in his six appearances in the competition and finished as top scorer. There is a lot of excitement around this young boy who has bypassed through the Barca youth system at a speed last witnessed when one Lionel Messi was in his position. I'm not suggesting he'll be as good as Messi but he is an impressive player. Sergi Samper is another that impressed in the Barca U19 and is a regular for the Spanish U17 team.
Darko Jevtic (75)
Kwang-Ryong Pak (78)
Arlind Ajeti (75)
I'm not going to pretend I know too much about the Basel U19 team. They had a tournament to forget as they struggled to find times to play their matches (most notably against Internazionale). However all three of these players are internationals, with Pak playing for the Noth Korean national team already.
Paul George (75)
Marcus Fraser (75)
Filip Twardzik (75)
Paul George was the stand out player for Celtic U19s this season, scoring three goals in Celtic's short time within the TNS. Filip Twardzik has been on the fringes of the Celtic first team for some time now and perhaps may get some playing time now that Celtic have already won the title. Paul George would have played as well I imagine but he has been so unfortunate so as to break his leg in two places, so may not even take part in TNS next season let alone the Cetic first team.
Gokay Iravul (80)
Again, I didn't see much of Fenerbache in TNS, however Iravul has been playing for their first team albeit irreguarly for the past two seasons now.
Marko Livaja (75)
Lorenzo Crisetig (77)
Simeone Pecorini (70)
Rodrigo Alborno (78)
Inter won the inaugural NS and have a lot of promising youngsters within their ranks. As previousy mentioned the coach of the winning U19 team is now manager of the Inter first team so many believe that Crisetig and Bessa will get 1st team game time very shortly. Daniel Bessa is the stand out player in the team, the playmaker and one to look out for when he is added onto the DB.
[*] Jon Flanagan (82)
[*] Raheem Sterling (75)
[*] Toni Silva (75)
The stand out player for Liverpool is Raheem Sterling, there is a lot of hype surrounding him but also a lot of concerns regarding his attitude. Jon Flanagan has started to get some more games for the first team but it is yet to be seen if he can nail down the RB position as his own, especially with Glen Johnson there. Suso has been playing very well for the Liverpool reserves and Dagliesh is said to be an admirer of his.
[*] Denis Suarez (75)
Manchester City endured a dire tournament, losing all six of their games. Denis Suarez is currently the only stand out name, although next season I should imagine they would field a stronger squad.
[*] Baptiste Aloe
Marseille were many people's surprise team of the tournament, and this is supported by the lack of outstanding players. The team played well collectively and played with desire which carried them to the semi finals. Aloe however was probably thier best player, defensively sound and got forward well.
[*] Zlatko Tripic (75)
Tripic finished the tournament with an impressive four goals in six games for a poor Molde team who finished bottom of their group.
PSV finished bottom of their group and played such a different team each game it's hard to highlight certain players as good for the future. None of their U19 team has any links with the first team, and only Hjortur Hermannsson is on the DB, but he didn't show me anything too amazing when I saw PSV play.
[*] Mushaga Bakenga (78)
Bakenga was the stand out player for Rosenborg, scoring six goals in their six games to tie second top scorer. He has since moved to Club Brugge where he is playing semi regularly but should push on next season. Rosenborg have little other players worth mentioning as future stars.
[*] Filipe Chaby
Betinho tied second top scorer at the tournament and following a string of impressive performances has shown great promise for Sporting CP. Along with him, Filipe Chaby, who scored three goals, have impressed those within Sporting Cp and I imagine they would get more playing time at the end of the season had Sporting CP not had such a terrible season by their standards which leaves them scrapping for a European spot.
[*] Anthony Pritchard
[*] Souleymane Coulibaly (75)
Anthony Pritchard was instrumental in getting Spurs to the last four of the competition where they had to withdraw due to an administrative error resulting in them fielding an ineligible player. Coulibaly is also one to watch out for, very fast and powerful striker who should make an impact on next seasons competition.
[*] Maximilian Arnold (75)
[*] Robin Knoche (75)
Knoche has been playing almost every game for Wolfsburg's reserve team, and has recently been called up to the first team with whom he made his debut at the beginning of April. He should get some more game time next season with Wolfsburg struggling to find some quality CBs. Arnold has also been on the fringes of the first team for a while and although he may not go on to be a world beater he may be a nice little riser next season.
I hope this list can help those interested. With this being the first season of the NextGen Series the teams were always going to be somewhat experimental. However next season with the likes of Chelsea and PSG joining, the level of competition is undoubtedly going to increase.
andre97 reacted to byrne7 in Angelo Henriquez
Re: Angelo Henriquez
Henriquez has now scored 5 goals in his 8 appearances (7 starts) this season.
His finishing is excellent!
He'll certainly get a hefty rise if he keeps playing, but more than that looks like a fine prospect with the ability to succeed in one of the top leagues in time.
andre97 reacted to Red-Devil-UK in Lorenzo Crisetig - Inter milan starlet
Name: Lorenzo Crisetig
SM rating: 77
Lorenzo crisetig is a central midfielder currently playing for Internazionale's primavera team and is rated as one of the best of the current crop of youngsters that are expected to make the breakthrough into the first team following the appointment and promotion of Andrea Stramaccioni from the primavera team manager to the senior team manager position.
Crisetig was part of the team that recently beat ajax in the final of the "NextGen" series. For a great thread on the nextgen series see here:
Although crisetig plays in midfield in a deep position he is not necessarily a defensive midfielder, he is more of a player known as a "regista" (deep lying playmaker) who controls and dictates play from a deep midfield position and is often compared in style to Thiago Motta, whose recent departure to paris st germain has opened up the possibility of crisetig's promotion to first team football even more.
Crisetig is part of the Italy U19 national team with 3 caps to his name.
Crisetig made his first team debut for Inter in a champions league game against CSKA Moscow as a late substitute.
Following inters success at the nextgen series, club president Massimo Moratti commented:
I'm not the coach, but there are three or four members of the Primavera who could be introduced into the first team
Stramaccioni was subsequently appointed as first team manager and the club's hierarchy now seem to be keen to adopt a new approach, similar to that of barcelona, where young players are gradually introduced into the team to freshen up the squad and take inter into a new and hopefully more consistent and successful era.
The current crop of youngsters at inter are very promising and along with daniel bessa, marko livaja and others who are impressing at youth level.... crisetig is a name that many expect to see on the senior team sheet next season, or maybe sooner!

Re: Riferimento: German Bundesliga - 2012 Ratings - VfL Wolfsburg
Gotze is injured so he wont rise.
Piszczek should definitely get 90 in this upcoming review' date=' I would be suprised if he doesnt get it. He has started 25 out of 26 games for Dortmund this season and they are 1st with a 5 point gap. He has also contributed with 4 assists in the last month. As always players arent guaranteed to rise as we dont know what SM will do but if he doesnt rise then there will be no reason why he shouldnt get 90 in the June/July review unless of course he gets injured.

He hasn't signed for them. There's some kind of dual rights deal between Universidad and United. From what i've read United have first dibs on him and can buy his rights outright for £3.5m anytime up until 2014.

Mathias Autret, 21 years old just turned, playing in FC Lorient and say they will soon be the new Franck Ribery.
He has been the target of many prestigious clubs, including Arsenal, where the check would be affected by a couple of years and is still looking to figure out whether to take or not.
Autret this year he played 20 games in Ligue 1 scoring 1 goal and 3 games in the French Cup.
Wenger him warmly, and said that in the future could become the left wing is missing at Arsenal.

It's 50/50 wether Gomis will hit 90 ... He's quite good and has caps for Les Bleus but at the end of the day there's better strikers in france ... I can safely say with 95% that He'll never be a 90+ player.
