    Shoutout to SM for finally reviewing some leagues.
    Thanks to this, Barrow's team value is now 124.4m 10 games into my 4th (3rd full) season - on August 18 it was 80.5m! The goal for this season and next season was to reach 90m & 110m respectively but we've absolutely smashed those financial targets. With plenty of cash on hand (for now), there's more room to grow for Barrow - should Austria, Czechia & MLS get reviewed soon, it'll provide a huge financial boost to the team. Also still waiting for players from Pordonese in Serie B & Ligue 2 to get their rises.
    Now Barrow has 33 82+ rated players, led by the 85 rated quartet of Kral, Gojak, Shomurodov & Darwin Nunez. They should be joined by Moncayola, Alzate, Milla, KWP and perhaps even Conor Gallagher & Pieper in the near future.
    Results wise, Barrow have 2 wins, 3 draws & 5 losses, placing the club in 18th (1 below last season's final position) which isn't amazing, but there is some improvement in the team's competitiveness as since by the -1 GD. So far, I've only lost one game by more than 1 goal so I wouldn't be surprised if the team's results improve a little in the future.
    As for end of season projections, I'm aiming to maintain a $125-130m squad value + keep $5-10m cash and finish top 15.
    All of this should provide a solid foundation for next season where we could potentially be a 'dark horse' for a playoff spot.

    3 games into the season Barrow only have 1 point though that is expected, it's going to be another long rebuilding season for the club.
    However there is some good news as the financial aspect of the club is improving at a nice pace, shoutout to SW for finally reviewing the 2. Bundesliga, as a result we've got some nice rises:
    Heyer 78 -> 82
    Stolze 78 -> 82
    Behrens 76 -> 82
    Ernst 78 -> 82
    And we're still waiting for Paik, Kruger, Mainka & Busch to rise. Altogether I reckon I'll profit a solid 6m thanks to this review. As a result of the recent rises the club now has a solid base of 82 rated players (19+ at the moment) which isn't too bad I guess, but the goal now is to increase this to 85 - only Gojak is 84+ now. 
    Fortunately I reckon there's hope that Barrow can start to continue building up soon as there's a batch of players I reckon that can reach that (and maybe more) including the likes of Darwin Nunez, Conor Gallagher (who I traded Kudus for), Moncayola, Kral, Agu, Walker-Peters, Robson Bambu.
    Also there's a whole bunch of 'wild card' players whose progress should be interesting to monitor: Milla, Ferrer, Pieper, Bukari, Alzate, Czyborra, Yvan Neyou.
    Now we hope that SW decides to review MLS, Russia & Czechia ASAP - each league should get me an extra 6-7m on average to continue to reinvest before wages kill my finances. Then hopefully they turn to Austria, Switzerland, Ligue 2, and Colombia.
    The process continues!

    As I approach my 100th league match in charge of Barrow and the conclusion of my 3rd season with the club, it's a perfect time to reflect on my 9 and a half months in charge of the club.
    Good news -nice and steady improvement on the results front.
    1st season with the club the team got 11 points (to be fair, I was only inherited the team with 10-15 games left and got 7 of the 11 points lol). The following season, my first full season in charge of Barrow, we got 31 points and now we will have 54 points.
    Also it's good to see the value of the players continue to grow, when I started the team was worth only 40-50m now we're at 80.5m. Yay.
    Bad news - the team still isn't competitive yet (even at Division 5 standards) and navigating the financial aspect has been rather tricky.
    I reckon my wage bill that is consistently over 900k is one of the highest in the division and with minimal operational revenue that means buying and selling players for profit is really the only way to stay in the black. Every season I need around 40-45m of profit in the transfer market, right now I'm at around 38m.
    Now the two main methods I use to generate profit have unfortunately not been as effective compared to when I used them in 7046 in the past couple years for a couple reasons:
    1. I've failed to generate many internal deals - part of this is due to the lack of quality in my team, but also part of it is due to the 'culture' of 7777, everyone's out to swindle each other, including myself lol. I've got a few players through lowballing, but selling players is really tough when all you get are really lackluster offers. Only 3 players have left Barrow so far in P/E deals (Josep Martinez, Kudus & Krastev).
    2. SM refuses to review non-top 5 leagues anymore, it's absolutely frustrating. I would say a majority of my team play in either the second divisions of top countries (e.g. France, Italy, Spain) or leagues that are the 'best of the rest' (Russia, Czechia, MLS, Austria) so I've been forced to baghold them for periods longer than I expected. But when these leagues get reviewed it will provide a massive boost to my finances and give me the opportunity to build towards creating a competitive squad in Division 5. Because once you get out of D5 it's much easier to surge up the leagues because of the increased promotion spots. I can only hope SM reviews the leagues before the 'Lack of First Team Opportunities' concern kills half my team, it's the worst type of concern in the game because even if you play the concernees nothing will be change.
    Now finally, to end this mess of a post, what are the objectives for Barrow in the future?
    Season 4 - Goals are to cement the team as a mid-table side, pray that Russia & MLS get reviewed, and build towards a side with a 85 average. Only 2 players are 84+ in my team at the moment (Hartel & Sema) and they'll be leaving soon to fund the next batch of risers at Barrow. Qualitative goals: 90m squad value, positive financial balance & top 13 finish.
    Season 5 - Bring in 3 loanees and make a solid push for the playoffs. By then, it'll be the new year, with the top 5 leagues likely getting a new review so if I can get ahold of a couple rising stars I may now have the foundation to actually be competitive. Qualitative goals: 110m squad value, positive financial balance & top 8 finish.
    Season 6 - Get out of the hellhole that is Division 5. Qualitative goals: 130m squad value, positive financial balance & top 3 finish.
    Out of the 136 players on my team at the moment, I can definitely see a couple becoming permanent main-stays in the starting 11 in the future: Granada's recent signing Luis Milla, Darwin Nunez, Moncayola, Felix Agu, Conor Gallagher, and Eberechi Eze (if I don't sell him first). Almost all of the rest, except for the promising youngsters, will be sold for profit (hopefully).
    Trust the process I guess. bye

    After being relegated we were humilated further by an oppositions B-side and even dropped another place down the table to 19th. Also, to add insult to injury, Fernandes is retiring after only being with us for just over 2 months.

    I'll try my best, here are some players on some of my teams that deserve rises soon, generally low-potential but should have enough to break the 80 barrier:
    Patrick Mainka 77 -> 82 
    Marnon Busch 78 -> 82 (unfortunately 2. Bundesliga hasn't been reviewed since ever and no indications they will in the near future)
    Brandon Bye 78 -> 82
    Pavel Bucha 76 -> 82/83
    Lukas Provod 78 -> 80/82
    Jackson Yueill 78 -> 82
    Matias Vera 78 -> 82
    Maksim Osipenko 78 -> 82
    Jeremy Ebobisse 78 -> 82
    Jack Elliott 78 -> 82
    Marko Raguz 80 -> 82
    If you're just looking for players that can jump from 78 -> 82/83 MLS is probably your best bet. The way the league is set up means that every year dozens of players make that rating jump.
    Given that none of the smaller leagues will seem to be reviewed for a while also keep a lookout for players who move from a non-top 5 league to a top 5 league, they can get instant rises (e.g. Keita Endo when he joined Union Berlin, Demirovic after joining Freiburg) almost instantly. I'm hoping that Luis Milla can get a +2 since he joined Granada.
    Hope this helps.

    Scored 22 goals for Southampton who finished in the bottom half, first player do that since Darren Bent who scored 24 for Sunderland in the 2009/10 season.
    He also scored 21 goals excluding penalties which is the best in the league.

    Anyway, since Russia hasn't been reviewed in forever (and won't be for a while presumably since SW will focus on the remaining top 5 leagues), do you think that teams that were just relegated from the RPL will be reviewed? Had a few Orenburg & Krylya Sovetov players on one of my teams (Ayupov, Miskic, Zinkovskiy) so was wondering if I should just dump them now if they are not going to get reviewed, cheers!

    A small rant...
    Was looking for risers who could make the jump from <=78 to 82 and took a look at the Israeli league and oh boy....
    Players not reviewed since 2010.
    A large majority of under 25 starters / rotation players (I only looked at teams at the top half of the league) not on the database - even players with 3+ seasons of top flight experience don't exist in SM!
    examples: 
    Muhamad Awad, age 23, 3201 top flight minutes, first team debut in 2016, not in database;
    Ofri Arad, age 21, 4100+ top flight minutes, not in database;
    Ali Mohamed Muhammad, age 24, 5500+ top flight minutes, not in database
    I know that the Israeli league isn't close to being the greatest league and their teams are rarely seen in the knockout stages (or even the group stages) of UEFA competitions, but given that leagues with slightly better UEFA coefficients (e.g. Norway, Sweden) and even worse coefficients (Poland) get their annual/biannual reviews, it doesn't make sense for the Israeli league to get 1 or 2 reviews a decade?
    Ultimately examples like this (in addition to the mishandling of larger league reviews) demonstrate the incompetence of SoccerWiki and the need for a complete overhaul of the system.

    RSCA: YOUTH ACADEMY "NEERPEDE"

    Last football season you already met some youngsters. I am very curious about the next season and their development.

    Certain players who impress this season, such as Jérémy Doku and Marco Kana who are already linked with some teams, but will just stay and continue their development at RSC Anderlecht.

    Killian Sardella and Antoine Colassin were less in the spotlight, but both still have enormous potential. It is looking forward to the next season of both players. Albert Sambi Lokonga and Yari Verschaeren are both players who have played at RSC Anderlecht for 2 seasons and also have a lot of talent.

    For both players, 1 injury put their development on hold for a while. Sambi Lokonga is back in shape for a long time and now faces a season where he should be able to confirm and be ready for a step forward after this season (20 '- 21'). Yari Verschaeren just got out of injury before these lockdowns were used in Belgium. Francis Amuzu is a slow grower towards other players, but Amuzu is slowly becoming a decisive player. Sieben Dewaele would then be allowed to leave again, possibly on loan.

    Who are the next players to keep an eye on.. ?
    These are 2 defenders, 3 midfielders and 1 attacker who knock on the door at RSC Anderlecht. It also bought Ilias Takidine from KRC Genk very recently, a 19-year-old winger, who will first grow at -21.

    Three of the defenders are 17-year-old Nayel Mehssatou, 16-year-old Zeno Debast.
    Mehssatou is a right defender who still has to choose between Chile and Belgium. He was allowed to participate a lot in the u21 of RSC Anderlecht, so there is a chance that Mehssatou can be part of the A-core.

    Zeno Debast is a very talented central defender, who is already wanted by Internazionale, but Debast wants to break through at RSC Anderlecht.

    The 3 midfielders are 16-year-old Roméo Lavia, 16-year-old Kristian Arnstad and 17-year-old Nils De Wilde. Lavia is a defensive midfielder and very promising. However, 1 problem appears. Liverpool FC has been chasing Lavia for months, but RSC Anderlecht are working very hard to keep him. At the moment rumours are that he will just stay.

    Arnstad, on the other hand, is a central midfielder who comes from Norway, but already makes a big impression with the u21 of RSC Anderlecht. He may only knock on the door after half a year, but keep an eye on this player.

    Nils De Wilde is an attacking midfielder who may be added to the A-core, his creativity and technique are quite good.

    Then 1 player remains and that is the attacker Mohammed Yaya Guindo who is probably still too young for some opportunities next season. However, his story is unique. 2 years ago, Yaya Guindo was not yet a footballer.

    The biggest talent is still to wait, because Mario Stroeykens (midfielder) is only 15 years old.

    He is considered even a higher talent than Jérémy Doku. So there is still a lot to come at RSC Anderlecht and possibly next season you will meet players such as Nils De Wilde or others. Luca Monticelli is also very young and a bright future is predicted. Simion Michez is another 18 years old winger who also recently signed a pro contract.

    Beltran is decent, long-term depends on a move away from Celta. 
    Marcao will probably be a solid 87/88 CB for his career.
    Porro hasn't been a regular this season, I hope he doesn't end up being loaned every season because that won't help him.
    Rogerio needs to play (been injured this season)
    Matviyenko is good but not sure how good. 
    They should all be around the 87-89 mark - rest depends on career moves.
    Dembele needs a move away from the chaos that is FC Barcelona. When fit there's a decent player there.
    He's lucky in a way Barca can't sell him off now - so I'm sure squad will be thin next year and a fit Dembele could impress. 
    But it's a risk to go on him now.

    Took over Doncaster partway through Season 18 in July 2017 with the team stuck in the basement of Division 4 after some major neglect from the previous manager. The best players I inherited were Daniel Baier, Thomas Foket, and Gregory Sertic.
    It's been a long process but today Doncaster is in the upper half of Division 2 thanks to a mix of talented youth, experienced leaders... and 240 reserves. A big moment for the team occurred when I won the Pavard lottery a couple months into my tenure.. soon after, he thrived for Stuttgart and played a key role in France's World Cup journey. This allowed me to sell him for Milenkovic, Mount & Joachim Andersen. Through swings and roundabouts, these three players have been converted to:
    Telles, Cucurella, Ben White, Omur, Matviyenko, Emmanuel Dennis, O'Connell & Webster.
    I've made tens if not hundreds of internal deals during my time, some of which where I won greatly (Renan Lodi), and some of which where I got absolutely robbed (selling AWB for Mauro Jr., Oscar Rodriguez, Queiros & Christian Oliva - yikes). But it is what it is and these deals have allowed me to build up my ranks with interesting and viable players. I think that Sam Hinkie would be proud of my work.
    Nowadays, the team is led by Papu Gomez, Lorenzo Pellegrini, Telles, Djene & Pavlenka, backed up by a plethora of exciting prospects - some of the highlights include: Lodi, Bruno Guimaraes, Bennacer, Gabriel, Kabak, Almada, Hlozek & Fabio Silva.
    Looking into the future, the goal is to ultimately become a mainstay in Division 1, and to maybe even win a cup or two. I could see the team reaching this level within a year or so if everything works out.
    The process continues - here's to the next three years.

    Armin Gigovic
    Club- Helsingborgs
    Age- 18
    Position- DM, M(C)
    Nationality- Sweden

    The Swedish midfielder is being linked with the Belgian Club Brugge and Russian CSKA Moskva. He's a complete midfielder with a nice pass and is a strong box-to-box player. He has nice technique and brings power in the midfield. Would be a nice transfer for Club Brugge.




    I hope he's going to Club Brugge, because it's nearly time to replace Ruud Vormer in the midfield. Gigovic would be a good back-up to eventually take over at some point.. .
