  1. I'd go with 1. Dwight McNeil, 83 > 86/85 2. Harry Wilson, 84 > 85/86 3. Jarrod Bowen, 84 > 84 McNeil probably has the most potential, given that he's 3 years younger than the other two players. He's also playing more regularly in the Premier League, and whilst Harry Wilson has lots of quality and talent, what McNeil excells in is consistency which is so rare for a player of his age. Bowen's talented, but playing in the Championship he won't get above his current rating.
  2. Rating Changes Given the extent of the talent we have in the squad, we seem to be getting consistent rating increases outside of any sort of schedule which is becoming really useful. In this case, the players aren't being reviewed because of any international duty, but just because they've been really impressive in the Championship. Ebere Eze, 80 > 82 The go to man for QPR, Ebere Eze's been rewarded with a deserved rating increase after winning the Man of the Match three times in the first eleven games of the season, scoring four goals and assisting a further two in the process. He stands out as being a class above the rest of his side and is so key to their success in the heart of midfield. QPR are being held back by current financial restrictions, not spending any significant money despite bringing in around £8.5 million in player sales in the summer. Next summer I think it's very likely that Eze will be the man sold due to similar reasons, although whilst they still have him they have an outside chance of making the play-offs with the club currently sat in ninth position. Eze's current rating increase means there's a chance that at the end of the season he could get a further rating increase to 83/84, and it also means he's now at a rating where he could be a really useful option for us in league games. He's just edged out in rating to Dwight McNeil, who's likely to start ahead of him, but any drop in form from any of the attacking midfielders could see Eze or Joao Carvalho take their place. AM: Brooks (87), James (85), Roberts (84), McNeil (83), Carvalho (82), Eze (82), Cantwell (80) Ben White, 76 > 80 In a similar rating increase experienced by Joe Rodon last week, Ben White gets a deserved rating increase due to his form this season for Leeds. He's been one of the best centre backs in the Championship this season, and like Rodon we'll be expecting a further rating increase to at least 82 come the Championship review at the end of the season. Similar to Rodon, he's still a bit off getting first team football but it does provide us with lots of depth at centre back. CB: Mepham (83), R. James (82), Clarke-Salter (82), Adarabioyo (82), Rodon (80), White (80)

Full Internationals Adalberto Penaranda (Venezuela) - 15 caps, 0 goals David Brooks (Wales) - 12 caps, 1 goal Bailey Peacock-Farrell (Northern Ireland) - 12 caps, 0 goals Jamal Lewis (Northern Ireland) - 11 caps, 0 goals Dan James (Wales) - 8 caps, 2 goal Chris Mepham (Wales) - 8 caps, 0 goals Antonee Robinson (United States) - 7 caps, 0 goals Joe Rodon (Wales) - 4 caps, 0 goals Rabbi Matondo (Wales) - 3 caps, 0 goals Ryan Nyambe (Namibia) - 2 caps, 0 goals Aaron Connolly (Ireland) - 2 caps, 0 goals Michael Obafemi (Ireland) - 1 cap, 0 goals Josh Maja (Nigeria) - 1 cap, 0 goals Aaron Connolly becomes our 13th player to pick up full international honours, and looks to in the frame for plenty more caps for Ireland given their lack of attacking options. They're looking to secure qualification to Euro 2020 with a win against Denmark, and I'd expect Connolly to start in a must win game. Joe Rodon and Dan James have added to their international caps, which has seen them rise up the list in terms of international experience. Jamal Lewis and Chris Mepham were unable to add to their caps due to injuries.
  4. There's a chance Roberts would, but I wouldn't expect him too. I'd expect McKenna to go to either Celtic, Rangers or a top Championship club. Top Talents Ethan Ampadu (80) Joe Rodon (80) Michael Johnston (78) Rabbi Matondo (76) Useful Talents David Turnbull (78) Matt Smith (78) Joe Morrell (75) Dylan Levitt (70)
  5. Both of these players are going to attract interest from other clubs at the moment, and whether they can get strong rating increases from their current ratings rests largely on whether they can earn a move. Roberts is Wales first choice right-back, and he's cemented down that place now. As a result he might be looking at a small increase to 83, but to get any higher he's going to need to play in the Premier League. There's an okay chance of this happening as he's one of the best right backs in the Championship, but it's far from certain. Scott McKenna's one of the best players in the SPL outside of Celtic and Rangers and is still very young. He's pretty much at the highest rating you can get at Aberdeen, so he'll need a transfer to get above an 82 but he will have interest from Celtic, Rangers and English clubs and I think there's a good chance ths will be his final season at Aberdeen.
  6. Aaron Connolly (73) with his second cap for Republic of Ireland tonight, I reckon a few up votes on soccerwiki and he'll get a review this week.

  8. Season 4, Turn 26 - Update Here's an update of Division 3, with 13 games remaining in the season. The league is incredibly tight, as whilst Servette have effectively secured their promotion, there's another seven sides realistically competing for the three remaining promotion places. We're hoping for back to back promotions, but have got tough competition and any rating increases that directly effect our strongest starting line up are incredibly welcome at this stage as they could be the fine margins that earn us our promotion to Division 2. David Brooks performances have really grown this season, as his 87 rating is now starting to result in very strong performances and a significant goalscoring contribution from central midfield. Adalberto Penaranda continues to be an exceptional player for us, as the top creator in the division as well as continuing to be our biggest goal threat. Aaron Wan-Bissaka's performances at right back have been superb, whilst Josh Maja's performances as our back up striker have been fantastic and he's been a really strong deputy to Penaranda.

  9. I don't really want to go through the hassle of increasing my soccerwiki reputation just to be able to do this, but would anyone who's got a decent reputation on there be able to change Tyler Roberts (82) birthday? He's currently down as being born on 12th January 1998 (aged 21), but he's actually born on the 12th January 1999 (aged 20).
  10. Given the Aaron Connolly made his international debut tonight, I'd expect him to get a similar rating increase in the next few days.

James (82) - Guehi (73) - Ferguson (73) Gilmour (75) - Harper (76) McNeil (83) - Clarke (77) - Matondo (76) Obafemi (76) * (aged 20) We now have two teams of players rated above 80, which is great to see. We're now exclusively able to look at players with the potential to become 82 rated players or higher.
  13. Rating Changes Joe Rodon, 77 > 80 Presumably due to his newly established regular spot in the Welsh national team, Joe Rodon has received a pleasantly surprising rating increase. It's certainly deserved, for one of the best centre halves in the Championship and a player that is certain to be attracting interest from Premier League clubs. We expected him to hit a rating of 82 by the end of the season, which this helps him towards, but if he can stay fit and keep getting appearances for Wales then he could reach an even higher rating. He's now not too far from finding his place in the starting line-up, but misses out to Adarabioyo (82), Clarke-Salter (82) and Reece James (82). Aaron Ramsdale, 75 > 80 Ramsdale's form for Bournemouth has been brilliant, and has helped him to earn a place as England U21's first choice goalkeeper which presumably has helped him to be reviewed early. This rating increase see's Ramsdale level with Bailey Peacock-Farrell's rating, and it gives us the option of using Ramsdale in the first team if Peacock-Farrell's performance are poor. Having established himself at a high rating, I think it gives us a better chance of getting a stronger increase when he's reviewed again in the Premier League review and we're hopeful of an increase to around 83.
  14. Transfers In Nathan Ferguson Age: 19 Rating: 73 Predicted Rating: 80 We've managed to secure the signing of Nathan Ferguson, who's recently been added to the database. We regard Ferguson as playing at the highest level for a British youngster that has been added to the database since Max Aarons was added in January. When new players are getting added to the database, if they're playing for a Chelsea or a Manchester City then regardless of whether the players is known to managers then we'll have five or six rival bids. As Ferguson plays for West Brom, he's slipped by the attention of other managers and we'll certainly take that. Ferguson has had spells at both right-back and left-back this season, playing ten of West Brom's first eleven games this season. He's been a big reason for their improvement this season under Slavan Bilic, which see's the Baggies currently sitting on top of the Championship. Ferguson has particularly impressed in televised games away at Nottingham Forest and away to QPR, two games that West Brom won thanks to goal contributions by the full-back. These performances have helped his reputation to grow, and is considered to be one of the best full-backs in the Championship already, drawing comparisons to the emergence of Ryan Sessegnon at this level for Fulham a few seasons ago. We're over the moon to be bringing in a player of his standard, and it's really helping us to continue to develop as a team. Whilst it's incredibly difficult to pick up talent in a competitive gameworld of a hundred managers, we've managed to bring in to Premier League regulars in Aaron Connolly and Steven Alzate and one of the best full-backs in the Championship in Nathan Ferguson against no competition.
  15. Rating Changes Mikey Johnston, 73 > 78 This is the poorest we've been hit by a poor rating increase since the beginning of the setup. Johnston's been playing fantastically well, and is a regular in the Celtic squad but still doesn't get near the ratings of players he's massively out performing such as Scott Sinclair who's rated as high as 85. We thought he should be getting an 82 rating minimum, and that's definitely what he deserved a regular in their first team this season. I think that's what he'd have got had he not picked up an injury in the beginning of September, but a month's injury should be something that the game take in to account when giving players a review after 17 months. In time, he'll be given the rating he deserves as one of the best players in the league at 85-87, but we're going to have to wait for some time with him given the league he plays in, so we'll be hopeful he can get a move to the Premier League sooner rather than later to be properly and regularly reviewed. Ewan Henderson, 70 > 73 It's a disappointing rating increase for Henderson, considering he's now a regular at Ross County and has featured plenty for Celtic as well. However, it's not one that really affects us, as we weren't intending to sell him after his rating increase and we still think he can go all the way to the top. That isn't going to change with a poor rating increase, and we think in time he'll be comfortably rated above 80.
