  1. Don't know about the others but Serrano is on SM. I managed to get both him and Williams at Athletic in the space of a couple of bidding wars
  2. Yeah it seems it is now sorted. Lost 4:1 in the cup and most of my players showing at 70% fitness for tomorrow's league game.
  3. Yeah, Steven was on briefly when I made that comment and tagged him but went soon after. I didn't think it'd be a simple fix but hoped that by tagging there'd have been some way of delaying the fixtures on the backend as it was quite a considerable amount of time that people weren't able to access before the games were played, but no luck there. Though I've still not been able to access the site, I've seen the mail notification that usually indicates something happened shortly after the games were due to be played last night. The discord is for people helping update SoccerWiki on the whole though there are some people who are there just to ask about when updates for the main game are happening and are removed for that reason. If there's something to share on game updates, Steven shares it freely so doesn't need to be badgered but from the last update a few months ago it sounded like the changes were going to be quite big so if they're happening this year I wouldn't be surprised if it was the last month or two of the year.
  4. I've got the same problem. Got a match in about an hour (Cup) so the fitness of my players is going to be screwed as I can't set team.
  5. Wasn't expecting that much of a raise for Joao Gomes with the minutes he's played. Guessing Matheus Martinelli should get a bigger rise with him playing double the number of minutes (1223 minutes in Serie A compared to 530, and 2939 total minutes compared to 1475 minutes) despite Fluminese's position in the league.
  6. While the quote in the first tweet is true, the other tweets are nonsense. indykaila isn't a journalist (genuinely) and just tweets clickbait.
  7. Official Euro team of the tournament: Donnarumma (22); Walker (31), Bonucci (34), Maguire (28), Spinazzola (28); Højbjerg (25), Jorginho (29), Pedri (18); Chiesa (23), Lukaku (28), Sterling (26)
  8. Is ridiculous how much football Pedri has played this season. I think Spain played the most minutes in the Euros due to going to extra time three times, so a max possible 630 minutes played and Pedri has played 629 of them. Added to 3,526 for Barcelona this season and he's going to the Olympics. He still managed to put in performances like that at the Euros at just 18-years-old. 100% pass completion in the first 90 minutes against Italy. Doubt he'll get a post-Euros +1 (though with people saying that Foden should have got one if he had played often for England throughout the tournament, which he hasn't, I'd argue Pedri's done enough - I think only Laporte from outfield players played more minutes for Spain and he's a centreback) but he has got a promising future ahead of him provided the ridiculous amount of football he's played this season doesn't ruin him. If anyone is in a gameworld where he's free, snap him up.
  9. Here's an actual heatmap: Like Mele said he does play often from the left. The De Bruyne change is ridiculous. He's now the joint-third best centre forward on SM despite hardly playing as one
  10. What a performance from Pedri. 60+ games this season for club and country, 4000 minutes and still manages to play like that for country for 120 minutes.
  11. I doubt it. SM have been pretty ruthless when it comes to injuries this review. Wouldn't be hugely surprised if Van Dijk gets a -1 even.
  12. Strange but true fact: England have a 100% win rate in major tournaments when Jude Bellingham plays.
  13. Personally I don't think either have done enough for +1. Vinicius' "big moment" against Liverpool aside, he's been underwhelming this season and has only really played due to Hazard being Hazard.
  14. I know I'm president of the Bellingham fan club but he's been quality in both games for England. Really should be a starter next week. Henderson should get a -1 purely for pinching that penalty from DCL then missing it 😝
  15. They both had injuries. Sancho played just three fewer games than Haaland.
  16. Sancho deserved a 93 but I said somewhere that if Haaland was going to get a rise to 93, they'd keep Sancho at 92 to differentiate between them. Not fair but that is how it went.
  17. I'm glad about that. In the short term, Konate won't be rising this review as he hardly played since the winter review but in the longer term he'll surely be a starter at Liverpool and should hit 90 by the end of next season if he stays fit. I tend to sign younger players so I'd lean towards Konate, but ultimately it depends if Torres gets a move and to where. Personally wouldn't really consider Tapsoba as he's only being seriously linked with Arsenal.
  18. Bellingham goes to the Euros at the age of 17. Bellingham to 89 crew rise up! @Kieran_S91 I'd love to see that front three (or Grealish instead of Foden) but think Southgate will start with one of Sterling or Rashford. Wish Rashford pulled out like Greenwood did - he also needs a summer of rest.
  19. He has seven appearances there over the last couple of seasons which might be enough to just about keep it but not a guarantee. Would have been interesting to see Sancho against City. Despite the injuries he's not far off last season's stats in all competitions. 19/20: 44 apps, 20 goals, 20 assists 20/21: 36 apps, 16 goals, 19 assists Albeit the stats are now more in the cups than the league.
  20. Personally, I think he's fully deserving given his performances over the last few years and that consistency. For me, he's just as key to Dortmund as Haaland is, perhaps even moreso, and without him - like they were for both games against City - they look much worse off. I think it'll be a bit similar to Dias/Stones in the mid-season review, in that they both did amazing for City but the reviewers wanted to differentiate them so gave Dias the +1 and Stones nothing. Can see Haaland getting +1 to 93 and Sancho the 'Stones' treatment.
  21. My feeling too. 88 with a chance of 89 (89 being more likely if Reyna goes up to 88 as he's kinda stalled a bit since the last review). Four players off the top of my head who went from 86 => 89: De Ligt, Skriniar, Kroos and Sane. De Ligt and Skriniar rose to 89 mid season then 91 at the end but I think Bellingham can be compared a bit to Kroos and Sane (helps they played in same league): Not played as much in the league as them but season is still ongoing - can play a max of around 1800 minutes there. Done great in the cups and the Champions League especially. Kroos and Sane's national team minutes were purely friendlies while Bellingham has played a WC qualifier. His age and Dortmund's poor league form might count against him when it comes to the review but think his performances and the level they were at (Champions League) negates that.
  22. I like your predictions but think +1 right now is too small. Since his last review he played 90 minutes in all three of Dortmund's Champions League knockout games with very good performances at the highest level against one of the best teams in the world in Manchester City, been playing for his country and 800+ minutes in the league, currently having played 2200 minutes all season (season stats are usually taken into account at end of season review) Anyone know who the first player was? Only name that came to mind was Mbappe but he was 18 when he reached 10 Champions League appearances.
  23. One appearance (due to injuries) is not enough otherwise Fred would be a LB.
  24. Despite Dortmund's general underperforming, Bellingham has had a very good season - especially the last few months. Surely in line for a +2? This "New Signing!" tagline is annoying. I've got more posts than people with "League Two Players"!
