    It can be a BIG jump from 90 to 92 and Skriniar  could go higher in the future himself. I haven't seen 92 in Upamecano just yet. Yes, long term he could, but it's far from certain in the crystal ball yet

    Safest bet Skriniar

    Yeah ths is simply wrong, anyone who has him should try and trade away Skriniar while his rep is still high, he'll only decline. De Vrij is Inter's main CB, Bastoni is a rising star, and old war horse Godin preferred. Upamecano has everything in his game, gonna be a star.

    89 was fair for a first season back in a struggling side. Considering he got +3 to 88 in January 2020 and has only played 15 league games since then and 2 cup. 

    Don't get me wrong he is a good player and would give Tom Daley a run for his money. 

    I just think +2 to 90 is a massive step and feel 89 would be a fairer rating 

    He has risen fast but I think it accurately reflects his ability so not mad at it. Would rather see ratings as accurate as possible than pissing about. Hopefully others who are deserving get similar rises though and he's not an outlier.

    Lukas Klostermann or Presnel Kimpembe??

    Kimpembe, he's been playing really well, matter of time before he gets 92. Klostermann is more versatile though, very useful player.

    Yet can't get into the England team 

    What has he done to justify a +2 to 90 in 6 months considering from March to July not much football was played  .He already had a +3 in January to 88

    Since his +3 on 19th January 2020 he has managed 1 goal and 1 assist in 15 games . They managed 3 wins 4 draws and 8 losts and were nearly relagated

    Come on, don't use England calls ups as if they're a valid point, they're not, he should have been called up by now. Southgate makes many questionable decisions. The Villa attack was an absolute show, a half decent striker woulda boosted his assist stats big time, he carried that team. Without context stats are very misleading.

    Grealish easily deserves a 90, forget who he plays for, he is so far ahead of the rest of his team mates it's laughable. The fact he is 90 and the next best Villa player is 87 clearly reflects his situation within the team.

    Yeah I dont get the uproar over his 90, he's as good as Maddison who may even get a bump to 91 in this PL review. I couldn't care less about England call ups, Southgate never even picked a left back in his latest squad ffs. 😄

    Keeping in mind the +1 for casemiro, I believe there’s a chance for Wijnaldum for +1?

    Gini doesn't deserve 94, 93 is enough for him.

    and he usually has some of his best season right after, i can say being a Chelsea fan the games i have seen of him he doesn't look the same player, it's like he relished being the main man and it really brought the best out of him, he used to skip past players at ease at RM i don't even see him take players on that much it's such as shame i hope he can turn it around next year

    Yeah he was great the following season so I wouldn't write him off yet.

    I can kinda see why they kept Hazard 95 due to his injuries but he still played over 1500 minutes and scored a grand total of one goal. They'd better give Sterling a +1, especially if City likely make it to the semi finals.

    Hazard really struggles when he's bogged down by injuries like the season Chelsea were in freefall. I wouldn't be surprised if he's a lot better next season provided he stays clear of injuries. But plenty of players have been punished for injury ridden seasons so they just seem to like him lol, maybe SM are Chelsea fans, who knows.

    They aren't really worth it even if they do get the rating increase but I don't think they will. It's so rare for a player currently in the Championship to get an increase to 85, and that's even when they've reviewed it at the end of the season. Ryan Sessegnon went to 83 when winning Championship Player of the Year, Bamford got to 84 a few years back when winning the same award. 

    The one's to get are your 77/78 rated player who are looking to push towards 82, which represents a big increase in value. Key ones being:


    Jayden Bogle - 78 (Derby)

    Joshua Dasilva - 78 (Brentford)

    Nathan Ferguson - 77 (West Brom)

    Lewis O'Brien - 77 (Huddersfield)

    Marcus Tavernier - 77 (Middlesbrough)

    Han Noah Massengo - 76 (Bristol City)

    Jude Bellingham - 75 (Birmingham City)


    I don't know how SM are going to do this so I'm not going to go for individual predictions but I'd expect all to hit 80 or 82, which represents a good profit for all of them. 


    Got all of them apart from Ferguson who is unavailable. Probably buying Jarrod Bowen as he may get an independent rise at some point on the back of his upcoming move to the Premier League if he gets nothing in the Championship review. Taking a chance on a few cheap players close to 80 like Ben Purrington & Lewis Wing as well.

    I've got no idea how SM are going to predict the Championship. 

    - Will they have review Premier League loanees again?
    - How much weight are they going to put on to clubs league position, given how much talent is at the middling to lower clubs?
    - How much are they going to consider injuries, for players like Joe Rodon who'll start for Wales in the Euros and is one of the league's best defenders, but has missed the last two months with injury?
    - How much are they willing to increase the very top performers in the division - Eze, Bowen, White, given how slow they've been giving players they're due ratings in the past.


    Yeah I'm just wondering if it's even worth getting players like Jarrod Bowen or Kalvin Phillips for the quick profit as they're already rated 84, will they get any change at all? If so will they only change a little bit in value...

  9. Gotta say, I know some have issues with SM saying wait til the Summer etc, but I'd rather a player was acurately reflected than stick to the SM tradition which has made for some pretty silly ratings for older players like Ibrahimovic (was comfortably ahead of Kane for ages) & Iniesta etc being rated far too high when they were past it. If players notably fall in performance just drop em back down.

    I'm disappointed with the Rodri's rating he stays :(

    He's got huge potential but he's not been anything special at City so far, still adapting.

    Sterling didn't rise either but he hasn't been in great form in fairness despite what the stats say. 

    Also, I have John Stones in one of my gameworlds so I'm happy he hasn't, but the man should be dropping like his name. 😁

  11. All the LFC rises deserved (bound to be some fume over VvD on here though 😁). Apart from Wijnaldum, he's good, but 93 is too high for him, he was fine on 92 for me. Robertson has been rated higher than Trent so now they'll have to move Trent to 93 on his next review. I thought there was a small chance he'd rise to 93 directly but this is more in line with the usual gradual SM way so whatever. 

    KDB & Mahrez deserving of their rises. Predicted Silva's drop & binned him, so feeling smug on that one!

    Not surprised at -1 for Aubameyang. He's a great centre forward but now in natural decline. Players need to consistently challenge for  team or individual honours to maintain 94+

    I wouldn't say he deserved a drop rather that he was over rated & shoulda been 94 to begin with. Rising to 95 for being prolific in the Bundesliga then dropping while being prolific in the better  Premier League makes no sense, but we've finally arrived at an accurate rating for him so it's all good in the end.

    I think Michael Obafemi only getting a rating increase to 78 is definitely harsh. 13 games this season for Southampton, 6 of which have been starts, as well as his first cap for Ireland. He's only scored twice, but has been good for them, and they are quite high up in the table now. 

    I guess with players like this, they'll get their deserved ratings eventually as they're reviewed at least twice a season so it's not the end of the world. 

    I agree. You must have angered the rise gods beating me to him in the Road to Glory game world, let that be a lesson to you! 😄

    Whoscored.com lists VVD's weaknesses as being only his Tackling. 😁 

    Wow tackling? It's time Whoscored dispensed with their awful strengths/weaknesses columns, they have some laughable stuff in there!

    On 1/20/2020 at 11:04 PM, Milanista1 said:

    Even with the possibility of most of Pool rising, (soon enough) I still don't think VVD should rise . For him to go 👆to a 96 is too generous because he is yet to even lift the PL title (yet), when he does that, then I won't debate with you's about a +1 for him.

    A Liverpool title win is a formality at this point (the SM player raters will know this) so that's not the strongest argument really is it. Based on your criteria it wouldn't make a difference if he rose now or at the end of the season.

    Vardy to 92 in this review surely? Thoughts?

    It would be an absolute joke if he doesn't rise to 92, I'd bet on it & if he doesn't we riot. I don't care that he's 33... 17 goals in 21 Premier League games & Leicester doing well. No brainer.

    Sorry, I mentioned earlier when I was talking about Matip I meant this season, should've said that in the comment you replied to. Last season vvd was easily the best cb in the league, this season hes not been as good but people aren't focused on that since Liverpool are unbeaten. Matip only played 7 league games before injury but he was easily Liverpools best cb in all of those games 

    This wasn't a good argument before you started embellishing it & is even worse now. Matip wasn't easily the best, some games he was better, some VvD was better. But Matip was in exceptional form so it makes no difference anyway. If VvD doesn't rise, it wouldn't be because of performance, he's still been in the form of the best CB in the world. However, I think it's fair that a rise past 95 should come hard (if at all) given that's been the recent CB ceiling & the better you are in the game the harder it is to earn rises in the SM system so fair enough.

    Fabinho, T. Alcantara, Verratti, Kante.

    Who should go? 

    lol man that really is a dilemma! I wouldn't usually advocate this, but in your case I'd say unless he rises this week then Fabinho 😲 even though he's on the rise in his career. It will take him a while to reach 94 (if he does), he may end up stuck on 93 & he's not even there yet. But it depends, he's versatile, so is he better than your RB, CB or worth keeping around as quality versatile backup? He's not really the same as the others. I would keep an eye on Thiago & Veratti though as they could get a Koke style drop in the future if they remain treading water. Kante is safe as houses. I'd keep them all, why do you need to sell one? No one else you can let go of?

    Very generous. I'd go as far as saying he's been bang average in a bang average team, that have been in relegation trouble. I guess because he's been playing for England he's got 90, and that could well be the same for Winks. I'd still say he's most likely to get 89, but definitely a chance at 90 now. 

    Yeah Rice to 90 is a joke, I never saw that one coming at all. As you say, he's been nothing special in a poor woefully underperforming side.

    he's not been as good this season as he was last season.

    If Van djik was consistent then I agree he should get another +1, right now he's having a worse season than his first season at the top level. It's way too soon

    You've repeated this as if you've made a good point, you haven't I'm afraid. VvD has still been monster & if he doesn't rise it won't be a performance issue. It just seems to be the recent ceiling for top CBs. If that's the case then Ramos should just drop to 94 at the end of the season instead, leaving him on his own as the best.

    Joao Felix is surely gonna get a rise after his move to Atletico becomes official, they can't have an £112.9m replacement for Greizmann on 85 & priced only £10m! When exactly it happens, who knows.

    Well that was obvious... someone less obvious is Angelino who City just bought back, wonder if he'll get a small bump?

    Well, we can definitely put the myth of 93+ is reserved for players who in trophies to bed....


    Look, Koulibaly as fine a defender as he is, and let's face it, he is..... is a complete farce at 94! 


    Napoli haven't won an argument in the last 5 years! Its plain ad day now that SM ratings take one factor into consideration more than any other and that's HYPE! simple as that 

    He's hyped because he's one of the best defenders in the world, he's deserving of 94. It's good to see that he doesn't have to be at a better team to get it, not his fault Napoli don't win things.
