  1. Re: Bundesliga Ratings 2012/2013 Am I right in saying only two teams got reviewed this morning, Monchengladbach and Schalke?

  6. Re: Guess at next leagues to be reviewed, & discuss SM's review policy........ But now it's just an inefficient scatter gun approach. By using SW in this way they're creating a database that is rife with inconsistency, where only the 'popular' players from that league actually get a fair review, whilst most of the others continue to be rated many points lower. Far from helping them keep the database well balanced and up to date, it's, actually, only going to make it seem more unbalanced and out of date. I'm happy to wait a few weeks/months longer if it means we have a database (as we did) that is reviewed methodically, and logically, therefore making it more accurate as a whole. I actually really like the concept of SW, and think it is a great tool to update players more regularly, I just don't think it should have taken such a major role in rating changes. The database will not benefit from the fact its users are only going to update the 'hot' players that they have and want to rise, leaving all the other players rating slipping hideously outdated. I'm looking forward to seeing what happens when they finally do make it through the big 5 (got to finish what they start I guess), and whether the concept of overall league reviews is abolished from then onwards. We've already seen a mass of countries receive many random risers, which perhaps suggests they are all nations that will not get a thorough review again.

    Turkish Super Lig

    Re: Turkish Database - Ask me anything No they haven't, mate, if you notice a lot of players from many other leagues went up too. They have started to review Germany amongst all that, but the rest are random risers based on changes made by users of SoccerWiki (as is now the way SM do changes). If SM are reviewing a whole league, they start from the bottom and work their way up.
  9. Re: Bulgarian APFG Riser Predictions 12/13 I just noticed those myself, pleased to have been on target for Milanov (although it wasn't a hard one to predict). Wasn't expecting a rise for Vutov, but at least I signposted him as a good prospect. Certainly one to follow still, could rise far higher long term.
  10. Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread AFC Bournemouth 1 - 0 Birmingham City Ba 87 A late, crucial Demba Ba goal at the Goldsands Stadium keeps our hopes of survival alive. I was very pleased with the amount of chances we created, but it seemed like Stekelenburg was going to be unbeatable until Dia and Ba combined late on. We are now level on points with Carlisle, and two points away from safety. However, with a difficult double of away games at Hereford and Newcastle coming up I'm not getting carried away.
  11. Re: Chairman blocking loan This has been happening for weeks!
  12. Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread I'm in the same boat, although I'm a massive five points away from safety after a 0-1 home defeat to Forest, after I got my tactics all wrong. I just can't see yourself and Birmingham slipping up enough in the last few games to save us now. We now face a massive home game against Birmingham on Wednesday, if we don't win, we are certain of relegation, it's as simple as that. I know it's not my fault the team is in such a bad position, since I only took over three weeks ago, but it still hurts!
  13. Re: Premier League Discussion Thread Perhaps he wants to make the step up and fancies a challenge in a top tier league? Reading aren't finished yet, unlike QPR they're a team of players who want to keep their team in the league and will fight for it, and teams like that have beaten the odds (at least for a season or two) once or twice in the past. Even if they do go down, it'd be a good chance to put himself in the shop window for another team in the league for future seasons.
  14. Re: English Championship 7777 - Discussion Thread Indeed it is, I've never participated in a relegation dogfight before, which is what attracted me to this team, given they were in a hopeless position when I found this setup. I still think we'll end up being relegated, both yourselves and Birmingham have a much stronger squad than us, and the level of squad improvements I've been able to do has been severley limited by the poor resources that were available. But, I'm just giving it the best shot I can, it'll be interesting to see what happens.
