  1. everyone in the Argentina squad worships Messi, they all love him (the fans don't, but that's a classist and xenophobic issue) but they're mentally soft. Higuain has a weaker mentality than Eder. imagine if Eder had Higuain's talent? he'd be a world-conqueror. football is definitely a team sport, and no one has benefited more from the excellence of team-mates than Cristiano Ronaldo. anyway Pepe +2 to 94 Godin +1 to 95 Piqué +1 to 95 Gimenez +2 to 92 Victor Ruiz +1 to 90 por favor #JusticeForLaLigaCentreBacks
  2. Cristiano had a pretty poor tournament in terms of performances on the pitch. he played well once (vs. Hungary) tho he scored a lovely goal against Wales and was a great leader in the shootout vs. Poland. he got carried by his team-mates to the trophy. funny how Eder can step up and fire Portugal to victory but even with a multitude of better chances (mostly crafted by Messi) Higuain and Aguero have failed THREE SUMMERS IN A ROW. if only Messi's team-mates had the guts that Cristiano's did, eh? anyway; Cristiano can't drop now. he's just won a major trophy. should drop sometime next season if his performances continue to be as underwhelming as they were this season, but for now he has to stay and deservedly so. Pepe making a mockery of his 92 rating. player of the tournament. didn't deserve to drop when he did and has deserved to rise pretty much ever since. there's no group of players as ridiculously underrated as La Liga centre-backs. #PiqueAndGodin95PorFavor love Griezmann but he seems to have Thierry Henry Syndrome (an excellent world-class player who is hopeless in Finals). I would have said he was a shoo-in for 95, but not now. Bale should get 95 tho. he had a great tournament. let's see what SM do (who am I kidding they won't do anything).
  3. here's a question: whatever happened to the penalties for playing people out of position? an opponent of mine played 3-3-1-3 against me in the Cup today. he had Cristiano and Hazard as RCM and LCM. he won 4-3. he also routinely plays Marcelo in a back 3 to no penalty. now, I mean... HOW? does the orange status just not mean anything? because how on earth can someone get away with a team like that?
  4. good on Messi. the Argentina fans don't deserve him and the AFA deserve him even less. they're so corrupt they make FIFA look righteous. he'll have no problem maintaining his 99 rating because he is still by far and away the best player in the world. Bale will get a +1 after the Euros. he's led Wales to the QF. Wales! of course it's outrageous he doesn't have 95 already, but yeah, he'll get it after the Euros SURELY? Piqué showing how ridiculous his 94 is. flawless performance all Euros despite Ramos playing terribly. deserves a +1 to 95 unquestionably. Alba 93? come on. COME ON. Cristiano has been absolute garbage at the Euros. again, deserves a -1 to 98. but of course he won't get it. Iniesta dropping after probably his best season since 2010-11 is and has always been absolutely mind-blowingly stupid. I refused to comment further back then and the same applies now.
  5. what did I tell you? absolute joke. win a Copa del Rey and two CL's in three seasons... apparently that's worth the same as one PL Title where most of your goals were penalties and then possibly the worst season by a supposedly world-class attacking player in recent memory. hmmm. ok. makes sense. After Modric, Keylor Navas was basically Real Madrid's best player all season. so he's rated below Joe Hart. hmmm. ok. oh and hey win a TREBLE followed by a DOUBLE (which only 3 sides in major Euro league history have done)? nah, you don't deserve a rise unless you scored 59 goals, because otherwise you must be rubbish. you've clearly not earned it. Jordi Alba... hmmm. ok. Piqué got dropped, then won (and I'm gonna keep saying this) A TREBLE FOLLOWED BY A DOUBLE - BOTH OF WHICH HE WAS ESSENTIAL TO - ARGUABLY MOTM IN A CL AND COPA FINAL IN CONSECUTIVE YEARS. apparently this is not worth a raise to be rated the same as Sergio Ramos and Thiago Silva. hmmm. ok. Neymar was better than Suárez last year, but both got +1 to 96. Suárez was more efficient than Neymar this year (overall Neymar was better) but only Suárez gets the +1 to 97. Neymar stays on 96. hmmm. ok. I've flat-out given up on Busquets being rated properly. that's just never gonna happen. he'll stay at 95 even though he is A) better and more decorated than Modric - who is now 95 as he should have been. and let me not say anything about Iniesta DROPPING -1 after having his most consistent season for five years, during which he won THE DOUBLE and was absolutely unreal in the Copa del Rey Final. let me just not say anything about that because I'll lose my cool.
  6. what did I tell you? only two members of the best defensive unit in the world got rises, and those were both +1 (Oblak deserved a +2). Godín? ignored Juanfran? ignored Giménez? ignored Gabi? ignored JOKES. (very pleased for Koke though he's quite wonderful) I'm telling you guys, only Suárez is gonna get a +1 for Barcelona, maybe Munir as well. they won't touch Piqué, Alba and Busquets even though god knows they deserve it for consistently standing out among their peers in terms of success. and since 0 trophies seem to be the logic behind the Atléti boys not rising (a ridiculous reason, but whatever) I would remind any SW people watching that since their last ratings change Piqué, Alba and Busquets have won THE TREBLE (Piqué and Busquets' second) and THE DOUBLE back to back - it would be absurd for them not to rise - Robben and Ribery both hit 96 off the back of a treble and careers with much less success, Ramos has 95 and has never won a Double in his life, Thiago Silva has 95 and has never even played in a Champions League semi-final let alone won it multiple times. Piqué is comfortably the world's most decorated central defender (and Busquets' the same for defensive midfielder) and he's been a central figure to all those triumphs, and yet...
  7. Godín didn't win anything. no way he gets 95. Piqué's won 7/9 possible trophies since he got knocked down to 94. he won't get 95 either. I've lost all faith in SM and SW. but hey, just for fun, one more time before they burden us with their nonsense... Suárez +1 to 97 (second best goalscorer in the world, best #9 in the world, hugely decisive season) Neymar +1 to 97 (second best player in the world, absurdly rounded talent with a massive influence on the way Barcelona play - carried the side in Messi's injury absence - was immense in the Copa Final and has the most chances created in the CL this season). Busquets +1 to 96 (best midfielder in the world. should be ranked as such. his influence is so huge that Barcelona look significantly worse when Mascherano, one of the best DM's around, replaces him there. has won THE TREBLE and THE DOUBLE since his last ratings review) Piqué +1 to 95 (second best defender in the world, holds Barca's defence together immaculately - has won THE TREBLE and THE DOUBLE since his last ratings review) Alba +1 to 93 (world-class fullback with much improved defence to now match his offence - scored a huge goal in the 2016 Copa del Rey Final and has won THE TREBLE and THE DOUBLE since his last ratings reviewl) Vermaelen -1 to 88 (injury has destroyed him) Adriano -1 to 88 (injury and age has destroyed him) Douglas -2 to 83 (not very good) Godín +2 to 96 (best defender in the world and has been (or occasionally #2) since 2013. Griezmann +1 to 94 (unreal performer all season, wrecked Barcelona and Bayern Munich in the Champions League) Koke +1 to 94 (one of the best midfielders around - a tireless workhorse oozing with finesse and orchestrating ability) Gabi +2 to 94 (I know he's 32, I don't care, he's absolutely outstanding and one of the top DM's around - bossed the CL Final) Juanfran +1 to 93 (second best RB in the world right now, should be rated as such) Filipe Luis +2 to 93 (easily as good as Alba and Marcelo, should be rated the same) Oblak +2 to 92 (one of the best goalkeepers in the world. conceded just 18 league goals and won the Zamora) Giménez +2 to 92 (replaced Miranda so seamlessly at the start of the season. an absolute rock at the back for club and country). Saúl +3 to 91 (emerged from nowhere to be an absolute stud. one of the stars of the Atléti midfield an whilst capable of great moments of strength and courage he's also overflowing with skill and inventiveness. huge role in Atléti's march to the Final. Carrasco +1 to 90 (really decisive winger - shades of becoming the next Arda Turan - brilliant in the CL Final) Augusto +1 to 89 (solid DM who made the Tiago injury a non-factor when it could have crippled their season) Correa +1 to 88 (mercurial young talent - won games for Madrid, playing a big part in their Title Challenge. Partey +2 to 86 (promising youngster) Lucas +5 to 85 (promising youngster)
  8. no chance. look, you know how I think Barcelona, Atléti and Madrid SHOULD be rated. I've posted that enough. I just don't think they WILL be rated that way.
  9. Banega is fine. Krychowiak is a bit of a stretch given his injury meant he sat out a bunch of the season but hey, 3 EL's in a row. let's see how they mangled Atléti and Barcelona, eh? predictions: Oblak+1 Griezmann+1 Keylor+1 Casemiro+1 Modric+1 Bale+1 Benzema+1 Suárez+1 that's it. I've lost all faith in them to do anything even approaching justice to two of the best three sides in the world. maybe I'm being pessimistic, and I hope they prove me wrong, but I just can't see it. I mean, can you?
  10. Mustafi +1 makes no sense given how godawful Valencia have been all season. yes, he personally has been good, but...nah I don't get it. if he deserved a +1 then so did Smalling and Blind, who kept the best defensive record in the PL. after a rough couple months adapting Blind even began mugging off big name forwards with ease. very very strange. and yeah it makes a +1 for Laporte a certainty now. and Giménez must surely get a +2 considering he has been A) better than Mustafi and more successful.
  11. absolute joke of a decision. he's been amazing all season. should have been a +2 guaranteed.
  12. they're the least impressive CL winners since Steaua or PSV in the 80's. utter garbage as a team. a million miles from the 2014 side. but S04 knows this. he's clearly just fed up of this debate so he's trolling so we get fed up and move on.
  13. very good. could get a +1 to 90, but that would be generous.
  14. more successful? HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA that's some quality trolling, mate.
