sampillin reacted to bhfanaticos_92 in random risers
First of all I just wanna say that I didn't find any active thread for random risers (only one, but there are only players rated under 75), so if there already exist something like this, then sorry for opening a new one, and admin can close this thread, so there wouldn't be too many of them.
If you have any +4 (or more) risers, write them here.
Daniel Buballa 75-79/80 (played 2041 mins this season)
Dominique Heintz 75-80 (1951 mins)
Hope Akpan 78-83 (from the last rating change he played 410 mins)
Nathaniel Knight-Percival 72-77 (1938 mins)
Adam Legzdins 75-79/80 (2520 mins)
Scott Golbourne 78-82/83 (2734 mins and scored 1 goal)
Jake Kean 77-82 (1440 mins)
Ben Nugent 75-79/80 (747 mins and 1 goal)
Timo Horn 75-80/81 (2250 mins)
Akpan plays for Reading, others are in Championship or 2.Bundesliga. If they will review them at the end of the season, they will all probably keep playing until then, so I think they can get those rises.
If there will be enough interests for this thread I can find for all of us a lot more of them.
sampillin reacted to BroodRoosterNL in Maarten Stekelenburg
Re: Maarten Stekelenburg
Well just so you know, Stekelenburg says he's ready for a new adventure. So if your looking for a long term I'd say take him. If he ends up at a topclub (where he should end up) he can easily get a 94 like vd Sar.
To give you the reason for that, before the WC everyone though Holland would suck cause we didn't have vd Sar anymore. Well after the WC you didn't hear anyone about that anymore
Stekelenburg is a great goalie, just needs to move clubs to get rise and he'll most likely will move. I believe his contract goes till 2012 but if I were Ajax I'd sell him to make some good money. So probably leaves within 1 or 2 years.
Just don't expect him to rise while he's still in Holland.

Finland is not a very well rated league - only the top few teams have players rated 80/81, so there are not many larger rises at all from the Finnish league...

sampillin reacted to speegs619 in A Guide for Newcomers
I have noticed in the leagues that I am in that a lot of fairly new players seem to be dropping like flies after a few bad results once they sign on to manage a team. Many times this is because they get discouraged and they end up dumping their squads out of frustration. This leaves many teams in a lot of leagues unmanaged, which takes out the "human" element of being part of SM. Often times new players are dumping these teams after they have already made a flurry of transfer signings, trades, etc. that makes the team unattractive for a takeover by a new manager. However, I think that if some of these new players only understood tactics a little better, they would try to ride out a string of below par results and stick with their team, or perhaps even try to strengthen their weak areas with new players that fit their favorite style of play.
As a support for this theory, I'll use the example of one of the leagues that I am in. I manage an FC Schalke team that (at its core) is probably one of the weakest in World Championship First Division. However, I am currently in first place in this extremely tough first division (with only 1 loss) and it's not because of the transfers I have made (I've only changed four players), it's because I'm pretty good tactically when it comes to planning for my opposition. This post is not meant to be a boast by any means, but I've had a good string of results against much stronger sides than my own such as Liverpool, Barca, Inter Milan, etc., simply because I've tailored my tactics and style to both my opposition and my own side.
On with my main point, however. When I started in this particular league, 61 of the 80 teams were managed, a great ratio. Now, we are down to 31 managers and we have only played 9 league fixtures. In fact, several teams in the first division have already had three or four different managers in four weeks because of bad results.
So, what I will attempt to do over the next few posts is to give newcomers a guide on how to understand tactics and the SM experience a little better, so that we have less and less new players dumping squads or leaving SM altogether. In the end I just hope that this will let newcomers to the game know that we have all been there and that if a new manager has some idea of what your side is, or should be doing and when, then one can be pretty succesful in this game and enjoy it more -- and thus might be more patient and/or willing to ride out an occasional bad string of results, which will inevitably come.
sampillin reacted to JamalU in *Custom Formations*
Custom Formations would be great since many managers have good players but for the wrong positions and need to move the positions about instead of having to be stuck with the formations given. Of course there will be many managers who cheat using formations such as : 0-0-11 or 11-0-0 so a limit on how many players you can put where would be great
Defence: Min-3, Max-5.
Midfield: Min-3, Max-6
Forward: Min-1, Max-4
I hope they add this to the game then it would be perfect
so yeah vote people

sampillin reacted to Herbythelovebug in Kevin Kuranyi a good buy or not ?
Re: Kevin Kuranyi a good buy or not ?
I WOUDLN'T do it mate!
1. Kuranyi has had an average season to date, just 7 goals and 3 assists in 19 games. The stats don't tell the whole story though. He netted 2 'doubles' meaning he's only scored in 5 games all season, which for a 92 rated CF playing for what should be a top 3 club in the league, isn'tgood enough imho. I'm predicting a drop of -1 but he might get lucky and escape the SM 'slash'.
He recently had a very public fall out with Loew (the german NT coach) after walking out on the team at HT. The coach has said, he'll never play for Germany again as long as he's in charge! This could also effect his rating as 92+ rated players are usually always internationals.
2. You are Liverpool, who in real life are having their best season in the EPL for some 10 years or more. Fabio Aurelio is the preferred 1st choice LB and playing well. I think he'll hit 90 and Benayoun has also been getting plenty of games time, a few goals and assists and should also increase by +1.
If you still think they are dispensable and you're aware of ALL the facts, then feel free to buy Kurany, BUT you have been warned!
