    Rahul W's rating predictions

    With Argentina coming up for review, there are a couple of players there I expect to have their rating increased to about 85. Alan Franco Fabrizio Bustos Matias Zaracho Also Matias Vargas of Velez Sarsfield (85) seems to be highly rated. Nahitan Nandez (86) should increase too.

    With the Mexico review underway, here's a couple of youngsters I fancy for decent risers. Feel free to add names or disagree - my findings are purely stat-based, I don't watch Mexican football: Roberto Alvarado of Cruz Azul (80) - playing for the NT and getting plenty of game time. Erick Aguirre of Pachuca (83) - only likely to get about a +2 but seems to be getting a bit of a reputation Jorge Sanchez of Club America (82) - getting plenty of game time and at 20, seems one for the future Sebastian Ferreira of Monarcas Morelia (76) - good scoring record, but may be too soon to get a huge increase. Still, his record in Paraguay (13 in 19) may make his rise a bit bigger. I'd expect a solid +4 or +6 depending on SM's generosity. Edson Alvarez of Club America (82) - a regular with quite a few NT caps already, including game time (and erm, an own goal) at the World Cup. Jesus Angulo of Santos Laguna (73) - he's 20, he's very lowly rated and he's done well enough to get 3 full NT caps already. Tick, tick, tick!

    Does anyone have any thoughts on what's likely to be the next league to be reviewed? Will they do Brazil before the big 5? Or just a few more weeks of reviewing some players from lower-ranked leagues/countries at random?

    Balbuena, I think. Depends on the strength of your overall squad and what youth players you have that are coming through. Balbuena stands a decent chance of going to 88 (played every minute for West Ham). Soumaoro & Lala (based on stats, not knowledge) look to me like a stick-on for going to 86. Balbuena could feasibly hit 89 if he keeps getting game time & West Ham keep their form up.

    Mario Hermoso from Espanyol seems to be doing well. Got linked to Real Madrid, but thankfully that didn't materialise as otherwise he'd probably be on the bench! Malang Sarr from Nice too.

    I would vote to keep Lanzini. Trebel is 27 and plays for Anderlecht - his rating is unlikely to go up. Lejeune is coming back from injury and is 87 - his rating probably won't increase, either. And I saw a Welsh newspaper article yesterday said 'Why former Swansea City skipper Alfie Mawson's start at Fulham really hasn't gone well". Not a good sign! I wouldn't trade Lanzini for them. Hold out for better options, if you're short in defence or anywhere else.
