    YES unless it's every penny u have. U have to expect dips in form and just hope he gets his sparkle back earlier rather than later. Worth that gamble

    Remember this is my first spreadsheet predictions for Holland so the accuracy is unlikely to be as good as BIG5 predictions. I have to find SM's 0%Line and adjust for the next review. Hopefully my estimation, won't be critically out this first time.

    Minutes will vary game by game and league position also helps a lot. Anything over 0% indicates likely riser, higher the better/safer. Negative percentages don't predict a drop just less chances of a rise. The more games played the more accurate the predictions should be.
    I am concentrating mainly on Younger under 89 rated players as these are more consistent risers and more profitable, Goal keepers are dealt with by SM in a completely different way, which is why I mostly also ignore Gk's 

    All for now, thanks for your interest and support, Cheers Socca

    'Real Madrid C' in the custom game world, 'Club World Cup' (Game World ID: 413706)
    Post #3.1 - 14/02/2020
    My last post was automatically moderated for some reason and it doesn't seem like the mods are active anymore so I'm going to try and fix the issue myself by splitting up the posts into smaller junks. I think that's what caused the issue in the first place.
    This is the first half of my previous moderated post:
    Well, that was unexpected! A solid win to start off the new regime at Real Madrid C. In front of a raucous and packed Ciudad Real Madrid (2480 supporters filling up a stadium of 2500 capacity), we ran out 2-1 winners against the much stronger New York City FC. I decided to take a bit of a risk since there wasn't really anything to lose and I set the team up in an active and agressive 5-3-2, rather than the stock-standard park-the-bus type scheme used most of the time when coming up against teams that'll blow you off the part. This tactical choice seemed to work wonders for the team however, with LLARENA and MAURI each scoring. The stats weren't in our favour at all so perhaps we can count this in the lucky win column, but a win is a win. Considering the stats situation, it's only fair that the goalie, LANDETA, was named as man of the match with a 7/10 performance. Our players' individual game scores weren't high at all, but I guess the team spirit and strategy trumped that. 
    We now move up to 10th spot on the ladder with 19 points, only a spot and 2 points behind the only other managed team in the division currently (Salford City). The team played them the match before I took over and came out losers so hopefully there'll be another opportunity to come up against them later in the season and exact revenge. Could be the start of a potential rivalry, who knows?

    I don't think Thiago Alcantara will drop anytime soon. I would actually keep Thiago Alcantara (he's always been a personal favorite), because Pogba is more of a drama queen and at times doesn't give his all for the team - no doubt he is still a highly talented player. And could again play his best football when he (possibly) returns to Juve.
    At present time I'm also not too sure about Pogba's future: that's why I wouldn't risk buying him until it's confirmed that he's moving to Juve.

    Bayern have a stacked midfield with Kimmich now playing there so I'd swap for Pogba. Thiago is still an amazing player but will be 29 in a few weeks. If Bayern sign Coutinho permanently I think him, Kimmich and Goretska will form Bayerns midfield trio for the future. 
    Pogba is a risk but at juventus was easily one of the best midfielders in the world. you'd be picking a good time to buy him, the transfer ban would expire just before summer letting you keep or sell depending on what happens to him and United. If Ole is still somehow managing United next season and pogba stays sell otherwise keep.
  8. Thanks

    If you're the person with Fernandes no, Henderson has had 1 good season in years and he's 29. Fabinho is Liverpools best midfielder who plays same role as Henderson. Fernandes in comparison only has pogba for competition and Ole stupidly doesn't use him as a 10 so Fernandes is a guaranteed starter.

    While this is a predictions thread, it's one of the few active pages on this forum, and it's nice to have discussions out of predictions too. Let's just be respectful and sensitive.

    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!

    I reckon players will continue to be overrated due to the fact that they are English (no offence to the English). And the hype which surrounds some players (at times). 
    I also think players will (harshly) continue to drop/not rise, especially if they have not performed well in previous years and avoided a drop. 
    A players age could also be a more negative factor in the game.
    Only recently:
    C.Immobile: Not rising +1 to 93. He's been the best strikers in Serie A this season. 
    Koke's: drop to 93. Atletico Madrid aren't doing too bad considering they have sold/got rid of the likes of:  A.Griezmann, D.Godin, F.Luis, Juanfran, R.Hernandez and L.Hernandez last summer. 
    🤔 just trying to make sense of SM's craziness. 
    It depends if you really need an addition of 2 wing players in your team - to replace aging/lesser rated players (although Mbappe can also play on either wing as well). 
    I would personally keep Mbappe as he is the highest rated and has more of a superstar persona about him. There is also more hype around him compared to the other 2. By that I mean he is more likely to be placed on the front cover of a FIFA game compared to the other two.
    It really wouldn't be a surprise at this point.
    Does he deserve it? 60/40 IMHO. (I'm a causal red, so maybe being a bit biased).
    Tough choice. 🤔
    I would choose E.B Haaland because (right now) he seems the more likely to rise the quickiest, and is now at the perfect Club to show us all what he's made of. 
    Though if you prefer more of a winger type of a player than go ahead and choose A.Fati instead.

    Am not happy at all, with not having the 0% Line in place previously, as a guide, as their is a large amount of scope for being way out. Particularly with some of these much smaller clubs than the Big5. Many of these came out much higher percentages and I have lowered them quite a bit to be safer but basically I'm guessing, so be warned. They take a lot more time to do as well. I'll think on it overnight about leaving it as it is and I can then use these as a test case for the review, when it comes. 
    If anybody has a particular Netherlands player or Club he just must have, let me know. If possible by the morning and I'll see what I can do. Feyenoord may be worth doing. Sorry about this... Cheers Socca
    Ps Just noticed Buitink @ Vitesse should be zero and stay or at most could get +2.

    Wow I didn't realize how long this took to do from start ie create the structure, calibrate the formula's for the club then the players. Finally finished the structure 2hours ago and it only left enough time to populate and input 2 clubs but should be quicker tomorrow,. Note Stengs and Myron Boadu got rises just a month or so ago so SM might ignore them both.
    I also have to point out that as Netherlands & all the above are completely new I don't actually know where the all-important 0%percentage line is. That isa crucial part of the calibration and I have hopefully got it as close as i can without having 9years of data and reviews to go by. I have tried to make it that the 0%line is "well in hand" so that it will fall on the lower safer side, but we will have to see. It's exciting starting something new but takes a lot longer. More tomorrow, thanks again everybody... Cheers Socca
    Ps I hope all this arguing will subside very soon and we can get back to everybody being friendly to each other again .... Please 🤐

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

    Good lord. Nobody is comparing VVD to Ramos career wise. The comparison is there in relation to their ratings regarding this game! The comparison is in this time frame. Not 5 years ago! Who is the best currently. People pulling names out of the hat. All guys who were never in the running for the ballon D'or. All guys who only lined up beside some of the worlds best CB also at the time. Who's Van Dijk got beside him? Oh yeah but reading this thread you'd be led to believe Van Dijk is alright but Matip was carrying him! Incredible.
     
    On a side note, i'd just like to say how fantastic it is to see Man utd supporters living in the past. They've criticised Liverpool supporters about it for years! And here they are pulling rio's and vidic's out of their time machine! One guy went so far back in time, he pulled Phil Babb into the conversation. This surely is a guy who inflates his reebok pumps before he leaves the house! Don't forget the Huey Lewis and the news next time you go on a road trip lads
