  1. Shock horror. Someone that’s just been recognised and awarded as the best goalkeeper in the World has just had his rating changed to reflect it. Well knock me down with a feather, who’d have thought it?
  2. You lads need to sort yourselves out with all this talk of VVD being the best centre back in Premier League history!?!?! Take your heads for a wobble. You’ve clearly forgotten about Titus Bramble.
  3. Wasn’t Vidic a 96 at his peak, not 95 as inferred above?
  4. If they give Rashford an increase it’s time to give up.
  5. So, I’ve been watching some old footage and getting ed on cider. I’m interested in your thoughts on how you’d apply a rating to someone retrospectively? The first game I ever attended was Oldham vs Southampton. Quite a famous game, we won 4-3 and stayed in the Premier League. That day saw the first Premier League hat-trick for Matt Le Tissier. Ok, he’s well respected and is a kind of ‘cult-hero’ figure but was vastly under-rated, he only got 8 England Caps! Carlton Palmer got 18 FFS and he was dog. So, how would you rate Le Tissier? Would you adhere to a squad cap? Adhere to it? Mark him down for not going to a big club? I’ll give my thoughts on that at a later date... Also, who is the most comparable player to him now and why? Again, I’ll give my thoughts at a later date...
  6. It’ll be interesting to see what they give to Foden? 9 goals in 50 appearances for City. I was shocked he’d appeared that many times and that would be an exceptional strike rate for any midfielder but even more so when the majority of those appearances have been ‘bit parts’ as a substitute!?! Got to be 87 this review? City are out of the running for the league so hopefully they’ll start notching his minutes up ready to transition for next season without David Silva so could be an 89 at the end of the season if that happens?
  7. For me, Lewandowski had an outside chance at a 97 rating. People go on about Champions League for a 96, Suárez didn’t get his 96 for 6 months after he won it. He got a 97 a year after he won it. Why? He was on a purple streak, just as Lewandowski is now. If I remember correctly Gerrard was a 96 at his peak? Never won the league. Did nothing with his Country. So why was he playing in the ‘Champions’ League?
  8. Ooh, someone seems to have a chip on their shoulder at being challenged on their views? This is a discussion board, so let’s discuss things rather than you sounding like you’ve run out of Tampax and attempting, albeit failing, to be condescending? My comments are words on a forum, I’ve not just scratched them in to your cars paintwork, nor have I wrote them on a note and sent them through your living room window whilst attached to a brick, so maybe you need to get some perspective before you try to get personal? Trying to talk down to someone with two bachelor degrees isn’t going to end in anything other than abject failure on your part. I understand how ratings work but it is not an exact science. There is always an element of ambiguity and interpretation to it; as there are with most things in life. You may want to remember that, otherwise you’ll continue to make the same mistakes in all elements of life and someone else will come along and make you look narrow minded and vexatious? Kind regards, Sareum.
  9. Referring to it as absurd is pushing it somewhat. We’re talking about Salah and Aguero for 96 ratings here, not Phil Jones. Injury record should not restrict someone’s rating, it is about that persons ability to influence a match, a recognition of their skill. Their injury record is what impacts a team by having to operate without that player. You could know a fantastic builder, he might be an utter perfectionist, has a great work ethic and gets things done swiftly. If the poor sod is struck down with the flu, he’s still a great builder.
  10. I know a few of you have Aubameyang as staying at 95 but for me he’s got to drop. I don’t think he should’ve got 95 in the first place, he’s not of the calibre of Aguero, Kane, Salah, Suarez, Griezmann etc. As becker was voted as the Worlds best goalkeeper it’d be a bit naughty for him to not get the 95 rating that would reflect that accolade. I’d also like to see Robertson get a 93 but think that’s more likely at seasons end rather than now? With people saying about potential 96’s for Salah and Van Dijk, the person that’s been overlooked here is Aguero, consistently great year on year. No champions league but if you take that out of the equation they got a clean sweep and made history last year.
  11. doo doo push pineapple shake the tree...
  12. Gnabry is going to get 92 in the coming weeks. 😎
  13. They’ve shut down all forms of contact. You just get faults when trying to raise a ticket now. They genuinely don’t care. Even doing PayPal reclaims (which I won) they don’t take action against cheats. Their ‘customer service’ is the worst of any company that I’ve ever encountered. I’m not simply saying that to be cliches or dramatic, I’m saying it because I genuinely believe it’s true and I’ve had the misfortune of dealing with some very incompetent and vexatious organisations in my time.
