    handsomebob got a reaction from Valentia in buy em now youths   
    Re: buy em now youths
    oscar - I'd say worth buying
    lucas - same as above
    wilshere - don't bother, he's been injured for too long, when he comes back he might easily not be the same player.
    neymar - if he really plans to stay in brazil, it's difficult to see his career going further, 91 rating max I would guess, still a top talent worth investing in though.
    hazard - Thorgan? maybe but he's only played 14 games (8 sub on, 4 off) not a huge prospect yet.
    Eden is due for a decent season and career considering he's only 21, but when you're buying at 25mil or so... it's not much profit. He's just been given +1 recently, so I doubt he'll get one in Dec updates unless he's having a phenomenal season (even then, it's unlikely ).
    gotze - same as E.Hazard
    phil jones - vidic has injury issues and rio too... jones has a look-in, even if not at CB, then as RB he's unchallenged, and if nothing else Sir Al can throw him in DM... I'd invest.
    varane - invest... real have no decent back-up CB, carvalho is too old and hasn't played much last season, so Varane is likely to get matches when Pepe or Ramos are not fit.
    cuenca - difficult choice. If he moves away from Barca, as has been reported, then he'll get playing time but his abilities will be tested. In barca he can improve alongside the best and get his job made easier by quality around him... but won't get playing time... 50/50
    tello - same as cuenca
    markovic - assuming this is Lazar, he's caught the eye of journalists who report teams want him, but I've not heard of anything concrete yet. Only worth investing in if a big team buys then plays him. But perfect option, he's cheap right now, buy low - sell high ;-)
    I've added reasons to help you understand the choices.

    Re: Yaya Toure to 94?
    I sincerely doubt he'll move from 93 to 94, particularly since he's just got to 93 in Dec 11 updates.
    I'd think there's less than a 10% chance of it happening.

    Re: Ratings predictions for three players
    50/50 on Dembele, Sandro is highly unlikely to rise, and Eto'o will likely drop at least 1... maybe 2.

    Re: Who to buy?who to sell?
    tough calls to be made here no?
    wilshere, though he's got talent, he's injured for extended periods which might mean he stays at 89 for some time.
    Vidal and bender offer equal opportunities (imo). Both are league winners (though Juve did recently slip-up)... and both could be in for increases in the near future. Though I think bender is more likely to get one.
    Jovetic is back from injury and playing well but at Fiorentina his rating might not go much further, and buying him from there is definately more expensive than say buying Hernandez from ManU... so you might want a different striker.
    Food for thought.
