  1. With a much higher importance now on goalkeepers distribution (breaking lines and being brave), can you name goalkeepers under the age of 23 (perhaps mix of older and even those not yet on database) who are particularly strong in this area? Really enjoy this thread so thought I’d ask 😀
  2. Apologies mate, it wasn’t necessarily for winter review, more so if the players continue their current form/minutes played, are the rating predictions looking good?
  3. What are your thoughts on these Rating Predictions for end of this season? I’ve never predicted before so some may well be skew-whiff Idrissa Gueye (91➡️92) - will SM give him back after he lost it? Jordan Veretout (90➡️91) Mikel Merino (90➡️91) Moussa Diaby (89➡️90) Patrick Schick (89➡️90) Victor Osimhen (89➡️90) Vinicius Junior (89➡️90) Jonathan David (89➡️90) Zambo Anguissa (89➡️90) Mario Rui (89➡️90) Abdou Diallo (89➡️90) Sandro Tonali (89➡️90) Tammy Abraham (89➡️90) Jude Bellingham (88➡️89/90) Matteo Pessina (88➡️89) Donyell Malen (88➡️89) Mahmoud Dahoud (88➡️89) Fikayo Tomori (88➡️89) Takehiro Tomiyasu (88➡️89) Luis Diaz (88➡️89) Brahim Diaz (86➡️88/89) Demarai Gray (87➡️88/89) Juan Foyth (87➡️89) Alexis Saelemaekers (88➡️89) Edson Alvarez (87➡️88) Ander Barrenetxea (86➡️87) Yeremi Pino (84➡️87) Mohamed Simakan (85➡️88) Amine Gouiri (87➡️89) Odilon Kossounou (85➡️88) Noussair Mazraoui (88➡️89) Gregor Kobel (87➡️89) Jean Todibo (83➡️86/87) Nico Schlotterbeck (82➡️85) Melvin Bard (82➡️86/87) Joe Scally (73➡️83) Kamaldeen Sulemana (82➡️87)
  4. Has Matheus Martinelli been missed or will he be gotten round to in next couple of days? Anyone know?!
  5. Apologies but couldn’t seem to find a forum post/topic on this subject … it’s a question regarding receiving bids from external clubs. Are there timescales as to when you can expect a bid for someone listed from external? It seems to be very random as to when bids come in, ie some come 1st day of being listed, some can take weeks. What’s the longest you’ve seen/gone yourself without receiving a bid and is there any logic as to why it happens with inconsistency? - Does what you list the player play a factor? Ie listing for his value vs listing for 20% over his value. - anything else play a factor?
  6. What’s everyone’s thoughts on Rafa Mir’s transfer to Sevilla? Think it’ll be a success?
  7. Not even now, given Fofana just broke his leg? 😥 Absolutely horrible tackle for a pre-season game!
  8. Tapsoba I just think has the higher ceiling. Strong, nice passer and comfortable at left CB so think he gets a move at some point. Just undergone surgery and will miss start of the season so will have to see how he returns from the injury but I much prefer him to Diallo. Excited to see what Allegri does with McKennie - seems to allude in his recent interviews to using him similarly to how he used Vidal during his last Juve tenure.
  9. Anyone aware of the cutoff time for transfers being completed on gamedays? This is something I’ve always been intrigued by, keeping a player for the game but for the transfer to be completed as soon after the game as possible. Is there a time prior to kickoff/amount of hours before kickoff where the player isn’t guaranteed to leave or a player who’s been accepted won’t join? Thanks in advance 🙂
  10. Shrewd signing for Rennes this! Interesting to see how he gets on in Ligue 1!
  11. So out of interest, what’s the highest rating change you’ve had for a player during your time on SM? Not multiple changes, just the 1. I’ve not really paid attention until late but did enjoy Jan Bieganski’s +16 this May. And in relation to that, are you aware of any players who in their next review will get +10 (or more)? Thanks in advance!
  12. My favourite 3 would be (in no particular order) Mohamed Simakan, Loïc Badé and Joško Gvardiol
  13. Great question! Thought I’d have a go with the goalkeepers. 1️⃣Robert Sanchez (85) - Brighton - Really think he puts himself in the shop window this season, building on a stellar season last where he took the #1 shirt. Everything you’d want in a modern goalkeeper, just feel he needs to improve his parrying of shots - has a tendency to parry back into trouble at times but if he can work on this, sky really is the limit. Has the dream size (6ft 5in), super aggressive coming for crosses and great reactions/shot-stopping - Marca recently referred to him as ‘La Pantera’, which I’m led to believe means Panther. Speaks volumes he’s been included in the Spanish squad for the Euros too. The only concern I have is whether a team could get a deal done with Brighton, given he recently signed a deal until 2025 and they’ve proven of late (with clubs pursuing Lamptey/White/Bissouma) that they won’t be bullied into selling at below their valuations. May be sexier risers for next season and isn’t going to be a 90 overnight but a high ceiling talent. 🚨Honourable Mentions 🚨 Etienne Green (76) - Saint Etienne - 6ft 4 and only 20, he was thrown in last season after injuries to both #1 and #2 - not a bad start either, saving a penalty on his debut! I’d absolutely love him to start next season as #1 but even if he doesn’t, got to think he’d be due a loan move to continue his development. Gavin Bazunu (73) - Man City (on loan at Portsmouth) - Was on loan to Rochdale in League 1 last year (who were relegated) and he was absolutely peppered. Now on his way to Pompey (who finished 8th last year), I think he could kick on and perhaps help them with a promotion push and even if unsuccessful, I see him playing Championship football a year from now, as his development continues. Made his debut for the Republic of Ireland also, at only 19!
  14. More of a back and forth this than watching Andy Murray this evening at Wimbledon 🎾 Although I will say, if you 2 ever pick up the rackets, tickets will be must-buy 🎟🤣
  15. Super excited to see a potential CB partnership of Gvardiol and Simakan. Great balance (1 left footer, 1 right) and both supremely talented - just praying Simakan can stay fit because that partnership could be spectacular. Going to be really interesting watching Leipzig next season under Jesse Marsch.
