    Isco and Alba won't, Carvajal should hit 90, Inigo has been predicted a rise for some time now, 50/50 really.

    Re: What improvements / new features would you like?
    1. What happens when a manager leaves.
    I have a real issue with the way squads are destroyed after a manager leaves.
    In my GW 2-3 people left after years of being with their team. They had assembled really great squads, but within a week the AI had sold all the best players and brought in the rubbish ones they have in real life.
    This has meant my GW is much less appealing to new people, as what would have been attractive teams to new managers were now full of bad players again who had TB for the next few months. Giving anyone new little room to do anything.
    I would suggest that once a manager leaves a team it should not be gutted within a fortnight, but keep the players it has for a while (perhaps a whole season). Also anyone that is re-bought should have no TB.
    This will make teams far more attractive to managers and help modestly sized GW's attract new people long term.
    2. Squad Sizes
    Squad sizes are also ridiculous, it should be 60 at most, ideally 50. It would be very easy to enforce across all GameWorlds imo.
    All you need to do is give managers 1 season to reduce their squads to the appropriate size, or at the end of their season the squad will reduce itself without their control, meaning they may risk losing their star players.
    I myself am guilty of this, purely because others in my GW have done the same, so now I am simply doing what I can to keep ahead of the pack, however I am well aware of how detrimental this will be long term for my GW...
    But why would I risk my team and place sanctions upon myself and risk someone else bulldozing ahead and buying 100+ people.
    This is why SM needs to impose rules, it will make it much more fun for everyone else too.
    3. Dealing with cheaters
    Mercifully I have only had one encounter with a cheater in my SM experience, however the whole thing was a complete disaster.
    The guy took over a total of 4 teams and brazenly sold between them. He then took to insulting me publicly on the news feed when I asked him to stop...
    Myself and 3-4 other people all reported him and were fobbed off by the SMFA who told us nothing was wrong... The guy had even admitted to cheating in private message to me because he knew nobody would stop him. I enclosed this in my report but nothing happened.
    During that time the SMFA randomly reversed two legitimate deals in our league and blocked other people from doing swaps, while the cheater sold Johnny Evans to himself for 38 million...
    I really feel a much tighter policy on cheaters should be devised.
    Anyway, thats my 3.

    Stefan de Vrij for me. He's the youngest club captain in their history and is doing a pretty decent job of it, despite being only 21. To add to that, he is one of the select players born on the 5th of Feb, and we all know what that means ...

    What I always find strange on that forum is that you can ask for the most obscure players and somebody always responds as if they follow every player closely and are able to form a detailed opinion. This isn't even directed at Raz or NDF or whoever but is just a general observation across the forum.
    I have watched Günter about 4 times in my life and that was ages ago at the U17 WC. And I didn't sit there with my notepad jotting down what he was like. So no idea if he is good or bad.
    In fact, there'd only be a handful of people who have actually seen him; local guys who go to the practice and watch reserve team games. Apart from the fact, that those reserve games aren't even broadcasted properly here in Germany yet alone abroad, they also collide with Bundesliga / other European top league games. Add to that, that the few people who actually watched him aren't likely to be frequenting English forums, and I have no idea how some people form their opinion.
    #rantover
    to the actual case here: as none of us have watched him, you can only take the numbers and interpret them.
    He has played 2 minutes of Bundesliga in his life. Considering Dortmund have / had so many injury concerns, it is baffling that he didn't get played. Hummels and Subotic are injured but still he can't get a look in. Instead they play either Bender out of position, play Friedrich who they signed on a free and who is hardly a world-beater or play Sarr who is even younger than Günter. In other words, he is at best CB #7 at Dortmund (Hummels, Subotic, Papa, Bender, Friedrich, Sarr). Hardly awe-inspiring for such a talent, is it..
    Now, I read up on him a bit on German forums and while some rate him others said he ain't gonna cut it at a very top level. He supposedly struggles with opening play and benefitted from his strong physis at youth level. Obviously the others caught up with him eventually there whereas he never seemed to have taken the next step in his development.
    To think he is gonna walk into Gala's team is rather foolish.
    Also, contrary to what transfermarkt says, Günter's contract supposedly does not expire this year. Source is ruhrnachrichten who are incredibly well informed when it comes to Dortmund

    Might sound like a no brainer but De Gea or Ter Stegen?
    I'm hesitating because Ter Stegen is clearly going to Barça and Utd are heading for a few tough years (imo).

    Go ahead with the deal in bold, mate!
    I'd choose Ramos' date=' because high rated defenders are rare in SM.
    The pair in bold is a better option, quality wise imo.
    Well' date=' it's pretty hard to say who has more potential.
    Both are great prospects in their positions.
    I'd pick Nastasic, because he's already 90 and will rise more.
    Like I mentioned above, I value high rated defenders a lot.
    I prefer Vidal as a player.
    93 rated midfielders are plentiful in SM, while 93 rated defenders aren't.
    Unless you have better defenders than midfielders in your squad, I'd keep Kompany.

    With Ter Stegen's alleged imminent departure to Barca I would be inclined to go for him. I guess it will depend upon whether you are in the set up short-mid term or long term. Just look at Neymar as an example' date=' he gained a +1 just for joining Barca and the same could well happen with Ter Stegen. Both are exceptionally talented and not a great deal to choose between them so I am basing my decision on which club will be significantly stronger both in Europe and there respective league for years to come and for me that is Barcelona.[/font']
    Tough choice for me. Casillas I imagine may drop again with the upcoming La Liga ratings and I feel even a good World Cup will not be sufficient for him to bounce back up to 94 (if he drops this time round.)
    Lloris is a safe 92 and if Spurs push for honours like perhaps they should with the squad they have then mid-long term he' date=' for me is the better option. I would like to add I think it is a travesty that a player of Casillas's ilk is not first choice at Madrid.
    Edit: If Casillas maintains his 94 then he will be the better option, if not then I would perhaps go for Lloris, as I stated if Casillas were to drop to 93 then a rating difference of 1 is neither here nor there.[/font']
