  2. Rating Changes Mikey Johnston, 78 > 80 A really welcome, but deserved rating increase for Mikey Johnston who was really harshly reviewed in the Scottish Premiership review. He was superb for Celtic for more than a year building up to the review, but an injury a few weeks before meant that the previous year was seemingly for next to nothing. I think SM understand how poorly they've reviewed him, as they rarely update Scottish players and since he's returned to the side and after just a couple of substitute appearances he's been given another rating increase. I still don't think it's at the level he deserves right now, as he's in Celtic's strongest eleven in my view, which should put him at a rating of at least 82 and pushing to be around the 84/85 mark within the next year, so hopefully he gets another rating change in time. It might take him to make his Scottish debut for him to get that next rating increase, which has been long overdue. This review puts him on the fringes of the first team, although if possible we'll look to loan him out where he's now likely to get a lot more regular football. Wing: James (85), Roberts (84), McNeil (83), L. Nmecha (80), Johnston (80), Middleton (76), Matondo (76)
  3. Hiya mate, just thought I'd message you to say how much your work on the thread is appreciated. I know not too many people use the forum to the extent they did back in the day, but it's given the forum an ounce of much needed life. Keep it up.

    1. Soccahappy

      Soccahappy

      Many Thanks SwanseaJack Your doing a great, Great job yourself Mate! I'll try to keep it up.

      The Inputting is coming thick and fast on my spreadsheet and I only hope I can keep up with it and keep it accurate without mistakes....

  4. Disasi will easily at least an 82. Soccahappy suggests an 85, and I'd tend to agree 84/85.
  5. Top Five Leagues Predictions The top five league review has begun, with the review of France beginning today. Here's a final prediction of our players due to be reviewed. Premier League Aaron Wan-Bissaka, 87 > 89 David Brooks, 87 > 87 (INJ) Daniel James, 85 > 88/87 Dwight McNeil, 83 > 85/86 Chris Mepham, 83 > 84/83 Jamal Lewis, 83 > 84 Max Aarons, 83 > 84 Reece James, 82 > 85 Todd Cantwell, 80 > 83/84 Aaron Ramsdale, 80 > 84 Aaron Connolly, 78 > 82 Steven Alzate, 78 > 82 Bailey Peacock-Farrell, 80 > 80 Michael Obafemi, 76 > 80 George Hirst, 78 > 78 Herbie Kane, 78 > 78 Billy Gilmour, 75 > 78 Mark Travers, 73 > 76 Marc Guehi, 73 > 76 Tommy Doyle, 73 > 73 Felix Nmecha, 73 > 73 Dylan Levitt, 70 > 73 Ligue 1 Josh Maja, 80 > 83 Bundesliga Lukas Nmecha, 80 > 82 Rabbi Matondo, 76 > 80 Championship (Out on Loan) Ben White, 80 > 82 Jake Clarke-Salter, 82 > 82 Tosin Adarabioyo, 82 > 82 Ben Wilmot, 78 > 80 Jack Clarke, 77 > 77
  6. Player Reviews (2019) Wingers I still think he's got all the talent and ability to be a Premier League player, but he's really not worked for him so far at Norwich. I'm hoping he gets his break at some point, because he really should be playing in the Premier League. His current rating means that we'll keep hold of him, as a first team player, but he needs to show career progression by the time he's eventually forced out of the first team by our big talents. Rating: 84 Predicted Rating: 84 Despite his ridiculously poor review, Mikey Johnston is on course in terms of career progression and playing superbly well for Celtic. He's part of their strongest side for me, and with that he should get a strong rating increase when he is eventually reviewed again. He's a real goal threat on their left-wing, and I think he's one of the players in the SPL that will have some interest from English clubs, although I think as a big Celtic fan I think he'll look to try and win ten league titles in a row first and he'd be a key part of that side. Rating: 78 Predicted Rating: 84 As we said at the time, this guy can go really far, and he's gone even further then we'd have thought, as one of the first names on the team-sheet at Man. United. Despite United's poor form, we expect that he'll stay in there side and continue to have more and more of an impact on games, and we expect that he'll be a star for our side by the end of the year. For Wales as well, he's a key man and someone that will be a big part of the Euros in the summer, which may also help his rating. Rating: 85 Predicted Rating: 90 Middleton's career has stalled, in part due to the amount of wingers signed in ahead of him at Rangers, and with things not going particularly well at Hibs, as a loan signing he's been put on the back burner. Unless he can get himself back in to the Hibs side by the end of the season, we'll probably have to let go of him, but we still think he's a talented player. Rating: 76 Predicted Rating: 78 Dwight's had a brilliant year, for someone who was rated 70 at the beginning of it. He's now established himself as one of the first names on the team sheet at Burnley, and someone we feel can be pushing for both England caps and a move to a bigger club in the next year. Rating: 83 Predicted Rating: 87 Rabbi Matondo Age: 19 Rating: 76 Predicted Rating: 83 He's featuring semi-regularly for Schalke, with the occasional start and often coming off the bench for a side that are competing to win the Bundesliga given there start to the season. He's really like by his manager David Wagner, and under him I feel he can become more of a permanent part of their line-up, as well as picking up more Welsh caps, and I think if he's given the opportunity to showcase his talents he can deliver in Germany.
  7. Player Reviews (2019) Full Backs He's not had the best of year's, and stalled in ratings, despite his clear talent as he's been in and out of the Forest side. With him having us much competition as he does in attacking midfield, he's going to have to start showing more at Forest that he can go on and be a Premier League player if we're going to keep hold of him long-term. Rating: 82 Predicted Rating: 82 David's had a knock back with injury, which has meant he's yet to play so far this season. He certainly delivered in the Premier League last season though, and it's just a case of him now of making sure he returns to fitness in time to impress in the Euros with Wales. He's a huge talent, and I think long-term will be playing for a top six club. Rating: 87 Predicted Rating: 88 He's not had the best of years, but is now finding some regular football with Telstar in the second division of Holland. Again, I've not really seen him play, but he's seemingly impressing, all be it at a low standard. If we get closer to the squad cap, then he'll be one that will probably have to leave, but for the time being we'll keep hold of him with the potential he's supposed to have. We would like to see some form of rating progression though this year, which he's yet to have despite joining us in the beginning of Season 1. Rating: 75 Predicted Rating: 78 Cantwell's taken to life in the Premier League brilliantly, and seems better suited there then in the Championship where he was sometimes struggling with physicality. He's already got four Premier League goals, and we'll hoping that he can continue his goalscoring form which could potentially see him earn a move in the summer to a more stable Premier League club. Rating: 80 Predicted Rating: 85 Matty Cash Age: 22 Rating: 82 Predicted Rating: 83 Cash has had a really good year, deputising at full-back as part of a Forest side that are pushing for the play-offs if not automatic promotion. He's becoming one of the key men for Forest, consistently playing well and definitely looking like a player that could make the step up and play in the Premier League. Ebere Eze Age: 21 Rating: 82 Predicted Rating: 83 Ebere Eze is statistically the highest performing player in the Championship this season, and his performances have certainly been up there as the key man for QPR. He's definitely someone who Premier League sides will be looking at, and I'd be surprised if he doesn't get a move to the Premier League in January or in the summer. I expect him to end up joining a side like Crystal Palace, where I think he would impress. Steven Alzate Age: 20 Rating: 78 Predicted Rating: 85 Alzate has been a brilliant addition to Brighton's side as a younger player, and someone who I'm predicting to have a really strong year for both club and country. I think he can establish himself as a regular for Brighton, and continue to pick up caps for Colombia and I'm expecting a strong rating increase for him as Brighton look like a side that can push for the top half of the Premier League. Herbie Kane Age: 21 Rating: 78 Predicted Rating: 80 Despite getting some minutes in the League Cup for Liverpool, he's definitely best off with a loan move away from the club. He had a superb season for Doncaster, but he needs to be playing at a higher level than reserve football. At his age, I'd be very surprised if he breaks in to Liverpool's side, and I think a loan move to the Championship is where he'll be best suited. We're going to need to see more of him, if we're going to keep hold of him should we get near the squad cap, as he's just not playing any first team football. Jay Dasilva Age: 21 Rating: 78 Predicted Rating: 82 He's becoming a prominent player for Brentford, contributing with plenty of goals from midfield and establishing himself as a regular in there side that are currently doing well in the play-offs. We're hoping that he can continue his good form and establish himself as one of the best midfielders in the Championship. Marcus Tavernier Age: 20 Rating: 77 Predicted Rating: 82 He's currently the most creative player for Middlesbrough, but the side aren't doing very well in the Championship. We're hoping that he can continue as a regular for them, and that they can improve as a side and get more towards mid-table after a poor start to the season. Lewis O'Brien Age: 20 Rating: 77 Predicted Rating: 82 O'Brien's been a key man for Huddersfield, and he's in a similar boat to a lot of our players in that we're hoping that he can continue his good performances in the Championship which would put him around the fringes of our first team. We're confident he can keep his place in Huddersfield's side, as they continue to move more towards mid-table and build his reputation as one of the brighter prospects in the Championship. Rakeem Harper Age: 19 Rating: 76 Predicted Rating: 78 Despite playing a lot for West Brom at the end of last season, he's completely fallen out of favour under Slavan Bilic and failed to play in any competition since August. We're hopeful that he can find his way back in to there side at some level, and if he doesn't this year then we'll have to consider moving him on. Even a loan move to League 1 would be beneficial to him and his rating at this stage. Billy Gilmour Age: 18 Rating: 75 Predicted Rating: 82 Billy has been getting the occasional minutes under Lampard, and as he's clearly highly rated by him, I expect this year to be a good one for him. I'm expecting him to continue to get minutes when possible for Chelsea, and grow in to things as the year develops. I'd be very surprised if he wasn't a regular for Scotland by the end of the calendar year as well as he definitely has the talent to be. Long term, Gilmour's as much of an asset for us as anyone, and I'd be surprised if he wasn't eventually a mainstay in our team. Felix Nmecha Age: 19 Rating: 73 Predicted Rating: 75 He's had a really quite year, largely due to injury, but doesn't seem to be anywhere near getting minutes for the first team as a result. He's another one we're going to have to keep our eyes on the progression of, with so much competition in midfield, and move on if he doesn't make sufficient progression. Tom Dele-Bashiru Age: 20 Rating: 73 Predicted Rating: 75 He's only had a substitute appearance in the league cup to show from his move to Watford, but we imagine that he has to be somewhere in there plans for further cup games. Watford's league form hasn't been good for him at all, as they're unlikely to move towards younger players in there current predicament, but should they get relegated then he may start to be a part of there plans. Again, like the other boys not playing first team football at all, we'll have to keep our eyes on him and make sure he makes sufficient progression despite his clear talent. Ewan Henderson Age: 19 Rating: 73 Predicted Rating: 78 His loan spell at Ross County has been successful, as he's established himself as a regular in the Scottish Premiership. Long-term, for him to be worth keeping for us, he needs to really be playing for Celtic's first team so we're hopeful that this loan spell can be a sufficient platform for him to do that next season. Dylan Levitt Age: 19 Rating: 70 Predicted Rating: 78 He's looked promising when featuring for United's first team, and clearly has talent. With Solskjaer fancying younger players, I'm hoping for some more first team involvements for United next season, and for his Welsh debut which I think is a realistic aim.
  8. Josh Maja with three goals and an assist tonight for Bordeaux, in the top five leagues only one player ages 20 or under has scored more league goals this season, even though he's only started three games. Rating changes might have come early for him, as he's only just establishing himself as there first choice striker, but I think he's now looking on for an 83.
  9. I think a +1 is probably fair for him. His goals have been good, but his all round game isn't that good at the moment and he's still learning. He still needs to establish himself as a regular in Bournemouth's side. I'd say 85/86, any higher wouldn't be justified. This is from a massive fan of his as well, as he plays for Wales.
  10. Player Reviews (2019) Full Backs Aaron's obviously exceeded expectation this year, with him winning Palace's Player of the Year award and subsequently moving to Man. United for £50 million. We're just hoping that he can establish himself as one of the top five right-backs in the Premier League this year. Current Rating: 87 Predicted Rating: 90 He managed to achieve promotion, and with that exceeded my expectation of his rating. We're hoping that regardless of whether or not Norwich stay up or not, that Jamal can earn a move to another Premier League side and with the way he's performing I think he's on track for that. Current Rating: 83 Predicted Rating: 86 In hindsight I'm not sure his permanent move to Wigan was good for him, he looks way too good for him them really and I imagine will have the interest from sides towards the top of the Championship. I think for him to progress beyond 82, he's going to need to a move to a stronger club so we're hopeful of that this summer. He has been performing really well for Wigan though, and looks like one of the best left-backs in the Championship for sure. Current Rating: 80 Predicted Rating: 82 He achieved what we expected of him, and we're hopeful now that can cement his place as Stoke's first choice right back under Michael O'Neill. He's still quite young to be playing at this level, and we're hopeful he can be a part of a turnaround for Stoke, and can be part of a side that's pushing to be in the Premier League. Current Rating: 78 Predicted Rating: 80/82 I think Jayden's progressed so well, and really developed as a right-back in the last year. Despite him playing last season, I wasn't sure just how good he was and this time around I'm confident that he's a really good right-back at Championship level. He's contributing strong performances as well as assists from right-back which is always a very good sign, and I'm hopeful that in the next year he can establish himself as one of the best in the division over the next year. Current Rating: 78 Predicted Rating: 82 Max Aarons Age: 19 Rating: 83 Predicted Rating: 86 Like Jamal I'm hopeful that regardless of whether Norwich survive, that he'll be a Premier League player next season and given that he's only 19 I think the chances of that are good. He'll certainly have interest, and despite Norwich's defensive record he has shown his quality. I'm hoping that his performances can improve next season, that he can show the attacking threat he did in the Championship and get himself a big money move. Reece James Age: 19 Rating: 82 Predicted Rating: 88 He's starting to establish himself as Chelsea's starting right-back, and over the next year we're expecting him to cement his place there. I think he, like Wan-Bissaka should be aiming to be one of the top five right-backs in the division and I fully believe he can do that. His talent is immense, and we're incredibly unfortunate to have him. Nathan Ferguson Age: 19 Rating: 73 Predicted Rating: 83 Nathan's another superb teenage full-back talent to add to our collection, and over the next year we're hopeful he can contribute to a West Brom promotion and begin to play Premier League football next season. He's arguably just as talented as Aarons, Lewis, James and Wan-Bissaka and only time will tell whether he can reach the same heights as them, but he's going to give us a few headaches in the future in this department of the pitch.
  11. Player Reviews (2019) Centre Backs Mepham's achieved what was expected of him, which was a move from Brentford to Bournemouth where he's managed to get Premier League football under his belt. He's also established himself as a regular in the Welsh team, and if fully fit will be a regular alongside Joe Rodon in the heart of the Welsh defence. We're hopeful that he can push on a bit at Bournemouth, and beat out Steve Cook to a place as a first team regular, with him currently spending a lot of time as a substitute for the Cherries. He's got the potential for sure, but just needs to take his chance when it inevitably becomes to establish himself as a regular in the Premier League and we're hopeful that he can do that in 2020. Current Rating: 83 Predicted Rating: 84 Tosin has been given a generous rating increase beyond expectation, and this season has really benefited from a loan spell at Blackburn where he's playing in his more comfortable position of centre back. We're hoping that Tosin can push on in the Championship and gain interest from Premier League clubs, although it will be a big ask for him. Current Rating: 82 Predicted Rating: 83 Jake Clarke-Salter's on a similar progression path to Tosin, with him spending time on loan at Birmingham City. He initially struggled to get in there side, like Tosin did at Blackburn, but has shown his worth when getting his opportunity due to Harlee Dean's suspension and has since been one of there stand out players. We're hoping for him to establish himself more at Championship level, and hope that he can get some form of Premier League interest although again it will be a big ask for him. Current Rating: 82 Predicted Rating: 83 It's been a good year for Ben, who's starting to show his potential after loan spells at Udinese and Swansea. At Swansea, after a slow start, he's become a first team regular and looks very comfortable in the Championship. This year we're hoping again for him to establish himself in the Championship, before he'll look to kick on, and I imagine that should Watford get relegated he'll be a big part of there plans next season. Current Rating: 78 Predicted Rating: 82 Despite injury stalling him a bit, he's still hit his predicted rating and has a superb year. He's managed to break his way in to the Wales team, and will represent them in the summer at the Euros if fit, and with that in mind I think he can impress and earn himself a move to the Premier League which is where he's heading with the way he's performing. Rating: 80 Predicted Rating: 84 Ben White Age: 22 Rating: 80 Predicted Rating: 85 Ben White is such a talent, and someone I think is going all the way to the top. He defends like John Terry, and plays the ball out like John Stones. I think he's someone all the top clubs will be looking at, and whether it's with Leeds, Brighton or a top six side I'm confident he'll be playing regularly in the Premier League next season. For me, out of everyone we have, he's going to be the top centre back we've got in time. Marc Guehi Age: 19 Rating: 73 Predicted Rating: 78 Marc is yet to really establish himself as a regular professionally, although for England U21's he's been brilliant and has featured for Chelsea in cup competitions. He's incredibly talented as a defender, and I think would benefit from a loan spell in the second half of the season to get some regular football somewhere and it would do his rating no harm either. Nathan Wood Age: 17 Rating: 67 Predicted Rating: 73 Nathan's our youngest player, and is in a different stage of his progression to some of our other defenders. I do think he's incredibly talented though, and every week he's on the bench at Middlesbrough which shows how highly Jonathan Woodgate rates him. I think at some point he's bound to get his break in the Middlesbrough side, and when he does I think he'll take it with both hands, but I'm not sure if that will be next year.
  12. Player Reviews (2019) Given that it's been a year to the day since we started this thread, and gave our initial opinions on the players we had then, I thought I'd give a bit of a review of how players have progressed. We've made statements on each of our players at the time, and it's interesting to see if they've achieved what we'd expected in terms of career progression and rating. We'll also revise our expectations of our initial players and the new players we've signed and give a prediction for where they'll be this time next year. Goalkeepers Bailey has achieved what we've expected for him, in terms of both rating and career progression. He's at a similar standard of goalkeeping, and has the same strengths and weaknesses which is to be expected at his age. We felt it would take him a couple of years to become a Premier League goalkeeper, and whilst he is one at Burnley, he's still at a similar stage off being a number one and would benefit from a loan move back to the Championship to get some games. Current Rating: 80 Predicted Rating: 82 Aaron Ramsdale Age: 21 Rating: 80 Predicted Rating: 86 Overtaking Bailey as our first choice keeper will be Aaron Ramsdale, who's started life in the Premier League phenomenally for Bournemouth. Ramsdale is a great shot stopper, and is doing really well to play at such a high standard at this age. He needs to ensure that he keeps his place in the Bournemouth side, but even when they've lost games he's been one of their better performers. We think that this time next season, he can make his way in to the England squad and look to compete with both Jordan Pickford and Dean Henderson for England's number one shirt. We think this lad can go all the way, and expect him to be our first choice goalkeeper for the foreseeable future. Mark Travers Age: 20 Rating: 73 Predicted Rating: 80 Mark Travers is another good talent, and someone that's certainly worth us keeping hold of. At the moment, he's competing with Artur Boruc to be Bournemouth's second choice goalkeeper, and to get cup games for Bournemouth which he's managed to do so far this season. We're hoping that he can continue to play in cup games, and continue to get caps for Ireland over the next year. He's still very young for a goalkeeper, and there's no rush for him to play regular football, particularly in the Premier League but a loan move would be good for him. We're just hoping to see enough of him to gain a belief in his potential enough to keep hold of him as a long-term competitor for Ramsdale's number one jersey.
  13. Season 4 - Division 3 Play-off Winners With back to back promotions secured through the play--offs, the clubs second major trophy in charge, we recap the season with the Player of the Season awards. David Brooks beat off competition from Adalberto Penaranda to win our Player of the Season award from the first time. This ensures that no player has been able to win the award on more than one occasion, as despite Brooks having strong seasons with us before he's really pushed on this season and contributed plenty going forward as the clubs leading goalscorer with 15 goals from midfield. His contribution to the sides promotion push has been vital, and he'll be a really important player for us next season. Adalberto Penaranda topped the assists charts in Division 3, with 19 assists in the league and was comfortably out in front as the clubs most creative threat with a total of 21 assists this season. With the system we play, with attacking players playing just behind him, whoever leads the line has been able to make a significant impact with assists and this has been the case for Penaranda above anyone else who leads the way in our all time assists charts. Dwight McNeil beat out competition from first team players Reece James and Max Aarons to win the U19's Player of the Season. Despite only having just turned 20, McNeil has developed brilliantly as a player and has been a regular for us this season on the right-wing, contributing to the season with 7 goals and 5 assists. We're hoping that his performance can push on even more when he inevitably gets a strong rating increase in the Premier League review, although this will be the final season he's eligible for this award. This season's new recruit Steven Alzate has earned himself the Most Improved Player award, having emerged seemingly from nowhere to become a first team regular at Brighton, and to earn two caps for Colombia. It's been a remarkable start to the season for Alzate, and it won't be too long before he's promoted to the first team and makes his debut for the club. He's a brilliant talent, and the acquisition of him and his Brighton team mate Aaron Connolly are among the highlights for the club off the field this season. Player of the Season: David Brooks (37 games, 15 goals, 6 assists, AvP 7.56) Most Goals: David Brooks (15 goals) Most Assists: Adalberto Penaranda (21 assists) U19's Player of the Season: Dwight McNeil (29 games, 7 goals, 5 assists, AvP 6.50) Most Improved Player of the Season: Steven Alzate, 72 > 78 (+6)
  14. Season 4, Turn 38 - Update HJK have secured back to back promotions, with a dominant performance over close league rivals FC Astana at a capacity Old Trafford. HJK just had more legs in them then a tired Astana side, who struggled with three games in six days, with star man Luka Jovic failing to make a significant impact on the game. Astana goalkeeper Aleksandr Mokin was there strongest player, making several key saves throughout the match and preventing the scoreline being much larger. HJK made two changes from the side that won the Semi-Final against Numancia, managing the minutes of key players carefully with Jake Clarke-Salter and Josh Maja coming in for Tosin Adarabioyo and Adalberto Penaranda. It was Dan James who had the biggest contribution for HJK, with a Man of the Match performance from the young Welsh winger ultimately proving to be decisive for the club. He opened the scoring in the first-half, after being played in by Patrick Roberts and assisted Josh Maja for HJK's second goal. We've been awarded a hefty £4.4 million for our participation in the final, as a share of the gate receipts, which is a huge amount of money for the club and leaves in a very healthy position financial. We're going to struggle to spend that sort of money, given that the value of cash isn't particularly strong at this stage in the gameworld, but are hopefully of being able to bring in a player who can compete for a first team place straight away. Play-off Final: HJK 2-0 FC Astana (Old Trafford) HJK: Peacock-Farrell (80), Clarke-Salter (82), Mepham (83), Wan-Bissaka (87), Lewis (83), Cash (82), Brooks (87), McNeil (83), Roberts (84), D.

  20. Yeah, I know there'll be bigger risers, I've just got him as more of a long term buy as he's a big talent. Just wondering if you've got him down for a rating increase, as it would be good for him to get one. He's played another 90 minutes this weekend and scored, so that should secure his rating increase but maybe the review's come a little early for him to get a better increase.
  21. Rating Changes Nathan Ferguson, 73 > 77 It's always nice when any of our Championship players get the occasional rating increase outside the usual schedule, as they're reviewed half as often as our Premier League prospects. Ferguson has established his self in the West Brom side that are looking in a strong spot for promotion alongside Leeds. He's in with a good chance of being a Premier League player this time next season, and when he is reviewed at the end of the season I'd expect him to increase in rating to at least 82. He's only a recent signing, but is one of our very brightest prospects and adds yet more competition for places at full back. FB: Wan-Bissaka (87), Aarons (83), Lewis (83), R.

  23. Season 4, Turn 38 - Update We've managed to get through our very difficult play-off semi-final against CD Numancia. We were faced with a very difficult test, against arguably the strongest side in the lead, but managed to get through an incredibly difficult test. They had strong players throughout the side, and there only real weakness was there goalkeeper, so we decided to attack them and were rewarded with goals from Penaranda and Roberts. We were ultimately fortunately still though to get through the tie, as we went through on penalties. We now face FC Astana in the final, a side that finished level on points with us this season, in a big occasion for us at Old Trafford. With the game at a 75,000 seater stadium, we should be in for a cash windfall regardless of the result, which is a bonus for us anyway. In both of our games this season, we drew 1-1, so it will be a close game. However, we believe we have got a slightly stronger squad, with more strength in depth, and we go in to it favourites given that our squad is fresher and closer to match fitness having rested for the final league game of the season. We feel like there first string defence will largely be unable to start the match, which leaves them open to be attacked, and their star striker Luka Jovic is going to struggle to start the game for them due to fitness concerns. That's the main advantage for us, as generally we're very similar on paper usually, and it could easily end up a draw again like our two league meetings and another penalty shoot out.
