Madhatter got a reaction from Valentia in One Country One Team v2.0
Re: One Country One Team v2.0
Scotland wins, but can't avoid relegation
Glasgow - (AP) A valiant 1-0 win by Scotland over the Swiss was cause for a brief celebration, until scores rolled in from other matches that sent the Rangers side into Tier Three for next season.
A 2-1 win for Ashanti Gold for Ghana over the Romanians kept the Scots from staying up by the narrowest of margins - four goals point differential.
"It was an exciting finish to the season. The lads are in a good form, and they will certainly challenge for a return to the Second Division," said Mad Hatter. "We'll be back ... "
Congratulations to Valenita!
Madhatter reacted to sopmaster in Greek talent
Hi guys, i'm an English professional football analyst that works for a famous media sporting organization. My analysis focuses mainly on the Southern European leagues: Spain, Italy, Portugal, Greece and Cyprus, but also on the MLS. I'm really bored here in the office tonight (working a night shift and have just finished writing up my report for the NER-Toronto game) so now i'm going to share some info with you guys.
The best u-21 national team in Europe is Greece. That might surprise many of you because they aren't at this Euro Championships tournament now, however there is a reason for that. Greece were in one of the hardest qualification groups, it included England and Portugal. They out-played everyone and only lost one game (away in Portugal but they had 6 players out for this game and they still deserved a draw). However this time around the qualification process changed and after the group stages there was a play-off round. Greece drew the Czechs, but Greece's new first team manager Fernando Santos called up many of the players to the first team & many others were injured. So in reality Greece's 2nd u21 team played the Czechs and lost. If it was their first team i have little doubt they'd have gone on to win this whole tournament. So anyway, here are their young stars.
THE FUTURE SUPER STARS:
Kyriakos Papadopoulos (Schalke, 18 years old, Centre-back/holding midfield): Quite simply one of the best young talents in the world. He has all the physical attributes, the composure and professionalism to become one of the best in the world.
Ioannis Fetfatzidis (Olympiakos, 19, attacking midfield) - If dribbling is what excited you then check out this kid on you tube. He's Greece's most exciting prospect in years.
Sotiris Ninis (Panathinaikos, 20, midfielder) - A little overrated to be honest, but that's a good thing on soccermanager because his rating will rise considerably more than if he was underrated. He's certainly very talented and his former champions league winning teammate Djibril Cisse has tipped him to become world class. Ninis has great technical attributes and has been linked with Man Utd & Arsenal but his level is probably closer to Roma or Lazio. Still though, a great talent.
Kostas Manolas (AEK, 18, Centre-back) - He's aggressive and technically gifted. A very talented young defender that could reach the very top if he continues to develop.
Kostas Fortunis (Asteras Tripolis, 18, midfield) - He's a talented young midfielder that has been brilliant in his break-through season in the super league. His impressive displays have attracted interest from Juventus.
Thanasis Karagounis (Atromitos, 19, midfield) - the cousin of Giorgios Karagounis, he's a big midfielder with all the physical attributes to be successful. He isn't a regular at Atromitos but has impressed when called upon and he's expected to join Udinese in the summer, probably then loaned out. He's not the finished article but one for the future and a definite riser.
Kostas Mitroglou (Olympiakos, 23, forward) - If he sorts his attitude out he could be superb, but he can be a little lazy. Nonetheless on his day he has it all and is a very good target man. Olympiakos loaned him out to Panionios where he scored 8 goals in 11 games since going there in January, he's expected to move to the Bundesliga in the summer.
Sokratis Papastathopoulos (AC Milan, 23, defender) - Talent wise he should be in the super star section above, but he hasn't really been given a chance at Milan and is likely to leave. Milan want to send him out on loan to Genoa but Lazio, Roma, Lyon, and Werder Bremen want to sign him out-right for their starting 11.
Stefanos Athanasiadis (PAOK, 22, striker) - Impressed for PAOK in the league and the Europa League last season and is likely to have a rising rating. This is because Muslimovic has been allowed to leave the club so he will now be a starter.
Apostolos Vellios (Everton, 19, striker) - Is a big target man that has made a handful of sub appearances in the Premier League and he's impressed. He's one for the future and has all the attributes to be a success in the Prem
Young Greek players are cheap and very talented so make the most of the market and snap them up now before the rest of the world latches on.

Before I start off it's probably best to point out that I only watch J-League football very occasionally and I've compiled this list of risers by trawling through teams looking for low rated players who've been playing. Obviously the ratings won't be bang on every time and I've tried to be conservative in an effort not to disappoint.

Madhatter reacted to timesle in Top 5 leagues - Post-Ratings-Analysis Nov/Dec 2010
What does this mean?
In this thread I want to present, compare and discuss the ratings after the changes in the top 5 leagues of Europe - probably the most interesting leagues for the SM community as the majority of high rated players play in these leagues.
Though this thread is in the "Player rating predictions" section, I don't want to make any predictions on how the players will do after the changes and if they are worth keeping - as this isn't the intention of my thread. Please ask these kind of questions in the respective predictions threads.
I rather want to show how SM rank the teams of Europe's top leagues rating wise (e.g. here you can see the current Uefa team ranking. I want to check if the ratings of SM reflect these kind of ranking or if there are any outliers up or down.
In order to compare the team average ratings I first needed to set a few essentials how to calculate the "average SM rating" of a team. One way would be to add up all individual player ratings and divide the result by the amount of players. However I think that the players rated lower than 80 have only a small impact to the team (especially after the changes) as they are mainly youth players who are already on the database. So I decided only to use the main players of each team and I decided that the rating-wise best 18 players of each team would be a good essential on how to calculate the "average team rating".
As SM has obvisiously finished reviewing the French Ligue 1, I will of course start with France.
Average team rating
We see that Lyon is the highest rated team in France with an average rating of 89.83 whilst the currently last in table Arles-Avignon is the team with the lowest average rating of 84.22
The total average rating of all Ligue 1 teams is 86.64.
Ratings compared to the current table
In this image you can see the average ratings of the teams in order of the current table position and you can also see the regression line by which you can judge if a team is currently fair with it's ratings. So a team like Lyon seems to be very overrated. However this is certainly nonsense as the current league table is only a snapshot in time and ratings are based on longer periods of time. However if Lyon won't get better until the end of the season it's not unlikely to see some players drop. On the other hand teams like Stade Brenois or Montpellier seem currently to be very underrated. So if they'll keep this form, you can expect some risers there.
After all I realized that the current table stat is nice to view but not very convincing as ratings are made over a longer period of time. So I decided to add up the points that were collected by the teams in the seasons 2008/09, 2009/10 and in the current season and put the teams in that order.
(e.g. Lyon collected 22 points this season so far, 72 points in the season before and 71 points in the season 2008/09 => 22 + 72 + 71 = 165 points).
Points that were collected in the second league were halved.
Putting the teams with their current average rating in that order leads to a more convincing kind of table. I'll call it the
Ratings compared to the 3-years-table
Finally I want to present the
French team ranking
Ol. Lyon (89.83)
AS Monaco (87.28)
AJ Auxerre (87.11)
AS Nancy (86.50)
St. Etienne (86.33)
OGC Nice (85.94)
RC Lens (85.83)
St. Brestois (84.56)
SM Caen (84.28)
As I'm no expert regarding the French league I can't really say much about the current average ratings and if they are ok. So I let the community judge about this.
As the rating changes in the big leagues go along I will post more of these stats for the respective leagues and will also add a ranking of all teams of the big leagues.
Madhatter reacted to Lensois in Diego D'Italia
Welcome to my scout project Diego D'Italia. Under this project, I will try to give you some depth in the makings of the big stars in Italy. It will maybe take some years before they are getting chances at the big stage, so don't expect them to be big in about a few years. This is only how I think about them currently and how their club situation is.
Have a good read.

★ Lorenzo Insigne ★

Madhatter reacted to Kroitzz in Players to buy when starting off at a club
This is just a little thread listing players I buy when I take over clubs. A list like this was done a year or so back and I found it quite helpful so I thought I'd do one to help people out. A lot of this could seem obvious (without naming the higher rated youth known throughout Europe eg. Pjanic, Marin etc) but I'm hoping it will be useful. There is a combination of talents and risers in here. Also if you have players you think need to be mentioned, tell me and if appropriate I will add them

Madhatter reacted to Barracuda in Arsenal's Alex Song - Much of a future?
Re: Arsenal's Alex Song - Much of a future?
When I first saw him play (in that game against FC Thun a few years ago), I wasn't that impressed. After watching him some more, I concluded that he was one of the worst players I'd ever seen don our shirt. He didn't seem good at anything, never made his presence felt, plus he was very, very slow, sloppy, lacked ball control and couldn't even pass the ball properly. Not for the life of me could I understand why Wenger called him a "special talent".
It is remarkable, therefore, that he has buckled up, worked very hard to improve his game in the years since, and has made the DM spot his own now.
What makes him so good? Appearances can be deceptive, they say, and this is true of the Cameroonian. He's actually a very intelligent player and a good passer too. The thing is, he's a form player, not an instant impact-type; the kind that needs a steady run of first-team games and the manager's backing to grow in confidence and really bring out the talent he possesses.
For example, I talked about his previously-atrocious passing at Arsenal. When playing for his country, however, he was regarded as one of their better passers. Why, then, couldn't he replicate those skills for his club, you'd ask. Because he wasn't a starter for them. Competition was fierce, opportunities were rare, and hence he aimed to cut out the risky, flashy stuff and concentrated on keeping it short and simple.
Now that he knows his place in the side is secure, he's free to display his full range of abilities and take more risks, so to speak. Strong and determined, he shields the back four and pressurizes the opposition attackers, cutting off their spaces. Positioning was another of his weaknesses, but he has been getting better at it gradually (full credit to him as well as the coaches at Arsenal). His passing being underrated works to his advantage, because teams look at Cesc and think he's the real pass-master in midfield, and go out to stifle him, leaving ample gaps for Song to exploit.
The last point is something which hasn't gone unnoticed, however; during the West Ham game this season, the clever Zola shifted his sights to him and concentrated on denying him the space & freedom he thrives in, thereby cutting off the supply lines to Cesc & van Persie (here's a very good article about it). You may recall that the Hammers hit back to draw 2-2.
Anyway, to the original question - has he much of a future? You bet he does; if Wenger, the master at spotting talent, chooses not to go out and buy another holding midfielder and invests his faith in the 21-year-old instead, there surely must be something special about him, even if it may not initially be apparent to the rest of the world.
Madhatter reacted to Bob Loblaw in van der Vaart OR Ribas
Re: van der Vaart OR Ribas
A bit of a weird place to put it, but someone gave me rep for the previous post and asked me to comment on Diego Capel, so here goes:
Diego Capel - 90 - 20 years old - LM/Wing - £8.4m
Diego Capel is Sevilla's silver lining in the dark, dark cloud of the tragic death of Antonio Puerta. Puerta's untimely demise allowed for another home grown local lad to take up the Left-Wing berth and fill the void left by Puerta's passing. Puerta, equally profficient at left wing and wing back, would be a hard act to follow due to his talent and the manner of his death. It would take a player of greater talent to be a paliative to the fans pain. Fotunately, Capel was a player of such prodigious talent.
After a brief spell with Barca, Capel had joined Sevilla. His blistering pace and explosive acceleration made him one to watch but he was unrefined. The rough diamond has been cut to a more palatable quality now due to his hastened gestation that has occurred in the first team at a younger age than many would have expected. He is more than willing to run at players and that is just as well if he wishes to exploit his dribbling proficiency. He's more likely to try and beat his man than cross from deep which can open up play but at the same time, it means he often fails either to get the assists he deserves or cross when he should. Furthermore, he doesn't offer much of a goal threat. At just 67kg and 1.73m tall, you can imagine a player of such slight frame wouldn't be able to pack too much of a punch and you'd be right. Last season he contributed 3 goals in 31 games which isn't terrible but you could ask for more especially considering how attacking he is. Adriano, his main competitor for the role of left-winger, has 3 goals already this season in just 14 games.
Adriano is proving particularly problematic for Capel this season. He has been in great form and has ensured that Capel wont get a straight run in the side. He has played 697 minutes compared to the 934 minutes Adriano has played (note that Capel got a lot of those minutes when Adriano was suspended for a red card). Amazingly, neither player has had an assist this season but Adriano's 3 goals are better than Capel's 0. Capel last season looked better when he played first choice nearly every game and got 6 assists. Adriano, a versatile player who has fulfilled several roles for Sevilla, is firmly in at LM not that Fernando Navarro is playing so well at LB. This has led to Capel being squeezed out.
There is hope for Capel via transfers, most likely in the Summer. Fernando Navarro is being linked with Liverpool and if he were to move, Adriano may move back to LB and allow Capel to come into the side. Capel himself has been linked with moves away, Tottenham under both Ramos and again under Redknapp one destination touted and Juve another possible due to the dispute over Nedved's contract. Capel himself is caught in the middle of a contracxt wrangle. Some have speculated that there is a rift between him and Jimenez, the Sevilla boss, but whilst we can't be sure whether these rumours are apocryphal we can be sure that Capel hasn't committed himself to the club. He's made comments like 'I just want to concentrate on my football', comments usually native to the vocabulary of a player angling to move away from his club and measure the interest in him. Sevilla fans of course would be happy to see him sign on the dotted line, as would the club's hierachy I imagine. He has been used effectively several times this season as as impact sub and did a great job last night of terrorising Valencia.
With his lack of appearances this season, due to a number of reasons, I wouldn't expect him to rise as many thought he would at the start of the season. I also wouldn't expect him to drop, due to his effectiveness off the bench and when he was filled in. He'll stay at 90 for me, but is certainly one for the future.
Bob Loblaw's Bonus Fact:
Flea's can jump 130 times higher than their own height. In human terms this is equal to a 6ft. person jumping 780 ft. into the air.

1. BRUNO, Fernandes G, 23/88,
One of the best keepers in Brazil. Has played 26 of the matches, and is known for his brilliant performances. Was linked to Barcelona last season, should move to Europe someday. Rise to 89.
2. FABIO LUCIANO, CB, 33/87 (Cap)
The Captain deserves a rating increase. In his second season after joining from Cologne, he’s got 24 Serie A matches, with 1 goal. Rise to 89.
3. RONALDO ANGELIM, Simoes, CB, 32/87
Another defender who has been key for a few years now, Angelim has scored once in 25 matches this season. Deserves a rise to 89, with the others.
4. JUAN, Maldonado LB/LM, 26/88
You may remember this name from his days in the Arsenal youth squad. He’s been back in Brazil since 2004, and is making a name for himself. Played in two WC Qualifiers for Brazil this summer/fall and has 3 goals in 25 Flamengo matches. If I were a manager in Europe, I’d take a shot on him for sure. Rise to 89.
5. IBSON, Barreto, CM/DM, 24/88 (Loan from Porto)
Since joining on loan, he has been the anchor of the Flamengo midfield. Has also chipped in with 5 goals, this from 23 appearances, all starts. Should get the small rise to 89.
13. JAILTON, Cruz Alves, CM/RM, 29/86 (Loan from Ipatinga)
In the second year of his 3 year loan deal, he’s playing quite a bit and playing well. 23 starts, with one goal, definitely a key member of the midfield. Rise to 88
17. AIRTON, Ribeiro Santos, DM, 18/78
This kid should see his playing time increase in the next few years, he has started 4 and subbed 4 this year, and been quite solid. One to watch for the next few years. Rise to 81.
25. THIAGO SALES, Guimaraes, CB, 21/74
The young defender has only played once in Serie A, but in the regional tournaments scored 4 in 6 games. Worth investing in. Rise to 77.
36. ERICK FLORES, Bonfim, AM, 19/?? (Recently promoted)
19 year old would be worth investing in if only he were on the database. Considered one of the most talented young players for Flamengo, he has featured in 7 matches so far. I’d give him a 79.
41. VANDINHO, Vanderson, F, 22/?? (Joined in August)
This player exites me. Played second division most of this and last season, scoring 27 goals in 34 games. Just joined Flamengo recently and has played 5 games, with 2 goals and an assist. Highly recommended. Should be 82.
1. VICTOR, Leandro, G, 25/85
Was injured most of last season, which gave to the rise of Marcelo Grohe, but has taken back his starters role, playing every minute this season for Gremio. Rise to 88.
4. PEREIRA, Fabio, CB, 29/86
Has finally found his niche, after two mediocre seasons, he’s been playing much more, and much better. 22 starts warrant his rise to 87.
5. REVER, Humberto, CB, 23/83
The top defender for Gremio, starting every match but one so far. His rise has been meteorical, there are threads about him out there to explain why. Rise to 87/88
8. RAFAEL CARIOCA, Pereira, CM/DM, 19/80
Another who has been mentioned a lot, he has 23 starts and a sub appearance, one of Gremio’s most played players, he should get a nice rise to 86.
9. MARCEL, Augusto, F, 26/85 (Loan from Benfica)
5 goals in 17 starts for this striker, who will return to Benfica when his loan spell ends. Most played striker on a top Brazilian side, rise to 87 for now.
11. WILLIAN MAGRAO, Henrique, CM/DM, 21/80
Yet another youth who is getting his chance for Gremio. 17 matches and 3 goals for this central midfielder who is connecting well with Carioca. Rise to 85.
15. FELIPE MATTIONI, Rohde, RB, 19/72
Backup right back, and Paulo Sergio is going back after the loan period, so he should take over. Which means buy him now. He has 3 starts and 2 sub appearances, which should be good enough for a small rise to 77 for now.
2. ELDER GRANJA, da Silva, RB/RM, 26/85
After a few seasons at Internacional, Elder Granja has come out of his shell. 17 of 27 full starts, he should get a small rise to 86, maybe 87.
9. ALEX MINEIRO, Pereira, F, 33/88
Has always been a scorer, but never to this extent. Top scorer in the league, 15 goals in 23 matches. Rise to 89.
12. MARCOS, Roberto, G, 35/85
Amazing story of loyalty. His next match will be his 400th for Palmeiras. You may remember him from his role in the 2002 world cup. Anyhow, he’s played every match this season and deserves another rise. Up to 88.
16. JECI, Jose Borges, CB, 28/80
2 goals in 15 matches since Henrique’s departure to Germany. Has been a big part of Palmeiras’ rise. Up to 86.
17. MAURICIO, dos Santos, CB, 20/73
Slowly being groomed into a player. In fact, he scored his first goal. He has 6 apps, only one of those being a substitute. Should climb to about 79 for now.
20. SANDRO SILVA, Laurindo, DM, 24/73
Can you say emergence? I’m actually not sure if grammatically, you can. But this guy has emerged into a starter for the leading side in Brazil. 13 starts, 2 subs, 2 goals. I think when a player is rated 73 with those kind of stats, it’s all you need to know. Rise to 84. That’s right, +11.
21. FABINHO CAPIXABA, Antonio, RB, 24/72
Not as much as #20, but he has 7 starts and 2 sub appearances at Right back. Good enough for perhaps a 79 / 80?
29. JUMAR, Jose da Costa, DM, 22/73
Again, same story. These guys are getting their chances. He has 9 starts to add to his 1 sub appearance. Rise to 81.
Madhatter reacted to Seftinho in The Big Risers From All Over Europe
This thread is dedicated to players who have become regulars for their clubs, and are at a lower rating than the rest of their team, hence why they are big risers.
I'll be going across all the big nations from Europe, apart from England as I'm sure there will be plenty of threads on those players. I will be looking at Spain, Italy, Germany, Holland, Portugal, and perhaps even more. I will look through each club and pick out the players who you should definitely buy.
These are the players that you can buy now, then at the end of the season you can look back and say, "I got him when he was 75, and now he's 87!", or "He was 86 when I signed him, now he's 90!". It requires patience, as rises are usually gradual throughout the season, but by the end of the season, it is definitely worth the wait.
I'd like to get it clear, that these are not all big risers at once. The big rise is from now to the end of the season. These aren't necessarily big risers at once, but are the ones that could be the next Susaeta's or the next Pjanic's.
I'd also like to get it clear that I am not claiming credit for any of these players. Some of them have been mentioned before, some haven't. I am simply saying who the big risers are from across Europe. But I am NOT simply nicking these from other threads, I'm taking them all from my own scouting (which doesn't mean that I am the first to find them).
These are provisional predictions. In other words, these are based on if the player in question continues to feature for his club. If he gets dropped, or is only filling in, then he will not reach his predicted end of season rating, but this should happen with few players.
High rated players (>=85) are in dark blue.
Low rated players (<85) are in royal blue
The biggest risers are in Bold Green.
Player surname in bold, so you know what to search, as well as Final Predicted Rating.
The number in Red in (Brackets) is the number they rose to.

Madhatter got a reaction from Dermo in Scottish Rating Changes
Re: Scottish Rating Changes
Just a note regarding the most recent posts ...
Celtic/Rangers banter is often the kiss of death to valuable threads like this. If you want to throw darts at each other because of which team you support, take it some where else. There is a lack of quality SPL discussions in the forums because of this very thing.
Please keep the posts constructive and informative. I am not a moderator, just a participant and an observer who would dearly love to get people's insights and feedback on Scottish players ...
Thanks gentlemen !
Madhatter reacted to pompeyfc in Big Riser-Luke De Vere
Luke De Vere
Luke De Vere was born on the 11th May, in Melbourne Australia. He has a height of 6 ft 1 inch, and a weight of 88kg.
Luke is essential to the Australian u20 team, playing 9 games for them in total since 2007 and scoring 1 goal.
He is a 19 year old centre back who plays for Australian club Queensland Roar. He is rated only 65 on SM :eek: !!! Queensland have so far played 4 matches and De Vere has participated in the later 3. Yes he has played 3 full games out of the possible 4 !!!
Luke wears the number 3 shirt for Queensland which tells me that the stats do add up and he is going to continue to play !!!
Rating Prediction 65-75... :D !!! A rise of at least 10 is my prediction atm!!! So for an aquisition of only 20k you will get a very nice profit!!!
Please comment and tell me what you think...Thank you all very much for reading this :)

Re: 145 million to spend HELP ME SPEND IT
My best advice to you would be to spend some time looking through Seftino's "Top Talents List".
You will find enough promising and proven young talent there to burn up 140 million in no time !
Good luck !

SECTION 1: Player Wages
Player wages is a large part of the game and it affects everyone’s financial budgets. The following list basically shows you the average range of wages for each rating.
In the making of this list, I’ve tested factors such as Morale, SM/Chairman’s Value, Age, Contract Length and Rating.
My research has shown me that the Morale, AGE and Chairman’s Value plays absolutely NO role in wage adjustments.
Also, the option of choosing the duration of the contract is meaningless in terms of player wages.
In fact, the only variable is the PLAYER RATING itself.
Here is some RAW DATA I obtained which I thought I’d post:

Re: Scottish Rating Changes
so, sorry to interrupt an old firm dispute, ... did anyone answer the question about yer man John Fleck?
He has his picture on p1 but is he getting games and on the up? Worth hanging on to or have I been paying his wages like a mug for all this time?

Re: Who honestly believes SM has hidden factors on tactics? And if so, what?
I am pleased to have read some really interesting posts on this thread which is a topic near and dear to my heart.
My only comment on the match engine, (I offer no insight or explanation or "magic formula") is that the game is a compilation of factors, all of which have a degree or randomness attached to them so that the total effect is unpredictable. More clearly: we have tactics, player ratings, positions, formation etc which all have effect on the outcome of a game, yet we have NO idea how much of an effect, and we never will. Nor ill we know who will win in advance. My concern with the match engine is that there is too much randomness, too much unpredictability. Many of us, despite trying, have nothing more than intuition and a few hunches to go on, and even those hunches are regularly betrayed by the overwhelming randomness.
I've played other online management games where the ME is a thing of beauty and the developers are happy and eager to explain what influences are at work. Those games, in my experience, do not detract from the thrill of applying sound football knowledge about players and tactics to get the best outcome possible. As had been said before, the best players in SM will usually rise to the top, and it is the same everywhere else, too.
SM is a wonderful, brilliant game, and I spend hours and hours indulging myself in the SM world, but I would dearly love to see a more sophisticated and less random match engine.
Madhatter reacted to thebugel in Another Boring Brazilian Thread - Or Is It?
Please note if these players have been mentioned before, regard this thread as an update. I believe these predictions will be 95% accurate nailed on. Yes yes i know its ages before the Brazil ratings change but at least their transfer bans will be up and the cash rolling in!!! Thank you
Carneiro KEIRRISON (F)- (83) SM value 3.7M
Fell out of favour before last Brazil changes (even got a decrease -1)but has been on fire since scoring 12 goals in 14 games. Next change 85-86
Do Nascimento RODRIGO ANTONIO (CB/DM) - (80) SM value 2.1M
21 games out of 24 for Vasco da Gama. Defenders are rated 85/86 and he has played more games than them. Next change 85-86
Henrique BRUNO AGUIAR (CB) - (75) SM value 512k
Played 17 out of 24 games and is the fifth highest minutes player in the team with 1511. There are three cenre back at Figueirense rated 85 and hes out-played all but one. Next change 83-85
Laurindo SANDRO SILVA (DM) - (73) SM value 176k
12 starts, 3 sub appearances racking up 1164 minutes for Palmeiras. Available for 70k in most set-ups. Cannot afford to miss out. Next change 80-81
Gonçalves MARQUINHOS (AM/F) - (80) SM value 2.2M
18 starts, 1 sub and 1568 minutes. He is the highest minute striker. Will EASILY reach 84. Next change 84-85
Bruno EDUARDO ERE (DM) - (75) SM value - 547k
On current for this player will reach 80. He has just struck over 1000 minutes and had no rating change last time around so a large majority of these mins have come after the rating change. Next change 79-81
Pereira RAFAEL CARIOCA (CM/DM) - (80) SM value 2.2M
This guy is a favorite of mine and must be signed at all costs (yes i know he has been mentioned loadsa times so get back on your horse). He has started 22 games for league leaders Gremio and has more "play time" than 87/88 rated players. With Gremio's form and RAFAEL CARIOCA's consistency this player will hit 85-86. Next change 85-86
Romero MARLOS (AM/LM) - (78) SM value 1.3M
11 games, 8 subs and 3 goals for Cortiba racking up 1157 minutes since last rating change. This player will reach 82 minimum. Next change 82-84
Henrique WILLIAN MAGRAO (CM/DM) - (80) SM value 2.1M
Another player i reguard as a 100% MUST BUY. Like RAFAEL CARIOCA, WILLIAN MAGRAO plays for league leaders Gremio (6 points clear top may i add) and has 17 starts under his belt (1518 minutes). Rose by 3 last time having played the last three games of last season. your can expect +4/5 or maybe 6 this time. Next Change 84-86.
Santos WILLIANS SANTANA (AM) - (76) SM value 786k
Having started the first three games Santos recieved a plus 6 rating. He has now played 19 games (1477 minutes) and yes he will reach low 80's - eeeeasy!! Next change 82-84.
Trevizan FELIPE (CB) - (71) SM value 22k
A nice little earner for you small teams. FELIPE has started 9 games for Cortiba (842) minutes. Certain to hit 76-77 or anywhere upto 80 if more appearance before changes. Next change 77-80.
Luís CHICO (CM) - (72) SM value 86k
Another small team investment. Chico has featured in 13 games notching up 1071 mins. 77 easy - 80 achievable. Next Rating 77-81
Vinícius TARTÁ (AM/F) - (77) SM value 1.1M
Featured in 20 games this season, ten starts, 10 subs (980) mins. He will reach 80's but no more than 83. Next rating 81-82
These, i believe are the main money spinners after studying EVERY team and EVERY player. so quick, buy up Brazil like i have NOW!!
