  1. Transfers In Bobby Duncan Age: 18 Rating: 73 Predicted Rating: 73 In comes another member of England U19's side, as Fiorentina's Bobby Duncan joins the club. He's not going through a great moment now, having left Liverpool in the summer where he was very highly thought of for Fiorentina, and struggling to hit the ground running. He's yet to make a first team appearance for Fiorentina, and would have certainly done so for Liverpool this season had he decided to stay. However, his talent is clearly still there, he's scored twice in two caps for England U19's, and is scoring for fun for Fiorentina's youth team. I'm backing him to succeed, and we can't turn down signing a player of his age with the talent that he has, as we continue to pick up more and more players from the England U19 side with Tommy Doyle and Arvin Appiah also both recently joining us.

  2. They are being incredibly slow with this, I know it's been over Christmas and New Year, but surely now they can be picking up the pace of things. Only a couple of Eibar players reviewed today, and they're still on the bottom five teams of La Liga.
  3. Transfers Out Rakeem Harper Age: 19 Rating: 76 Original Rating: 73 Appearances: 0; Goals: 0; Assists: 0; Average Rating: N/A To free up the funds to sign Conor Galagher, we've let go of Rakeem Harper in the deal. Harper's been really disappointing this season, and hasn't played at all for West Brom after August. Last season, we thought we'd got a prospect on our hands, as he was playing regular football for West Brom at just 18 years of age, but he's not pushed on from then and after a contract dispute in the summer he's not been in Slaven Bilic's plans at all this season. We had kept hold of him, largely due to him being just 19 years old and there being plenty of time for him to push on still, but with reports suggesting that he hasn't got the best of attitudes, we felt that he was somebody that needed to be sacrificed as we strive to stay within the squad cap of 60 players.
  4. Transfers In Conor Gallagher Age: 19 Rating: 77 Predicted Rating: 80/82 This is the most excited we've been about a new signing for some time, as we've managed to complete the signing of Conor Gallagher. Gallagher is currently impressing out on loan at Charlton, and there's really high hopes for him at his parent club Chelsea. Conor is seen as the next in line of the long list of Chelsea prospects that are currently getting opportunities at the club, and is seen to be in a similar position to where Mason Mount was this time last season so naturally this is a very exciting addition to the club. So far this season, Gallagher's established himself as Charlton's star player in attacking midfield, and the key to stopping them play is to attempt to man mark him out of the game, including on many occasions feeling free to hack him down when necessary in the way that Championship sides dealt with Dan James last season. This season, he's already managed to score six Championship goals, and will be looking to try and hit double figures by the end of the season. By comparison, Mason Mount managed eight goals last season at a Derby County side with higher ambitions than Charlton. With the review of the top five leagues coming up, Gallagher will be reviewed along with Chelsea, and we're expecting a strong rating increase to 80 at the very least, but given the level of his performances an 82 is certainly a possibility which would already put him in and around the first team squad. With the introduction of the likes of Gallagher to the side, we don't see much need for Joao Carvalho in the team anymore, and it's likely that he'll be moved on for cash shortly to fund more future prospects given that he's very unlikely to ever return to our strongest starting eleven.

  5. Transfers Out Adalberto Penaranda Age: 22 Rating: 83 Original Rating: 83 Appearances: 71; Goals: 31; Assists: 35; Average Rating: 7.14 We've made the difficult decision to let go of club legend Adalberto Penaranda go, despite the contribution he's had for us in the last two seasons. He's managed to become both the clubs all time leading goalscorer, and all time most creative player whilst leading the line for the club and in his two seasons his goals and assists have been vital to our back to back promotion winning campaigns. However, his real life form has prevented his stay at HJK from lasting any longer, as he flags well behind our other prospects and he struggles to convert his talent in to sustained performances at a decent level. His loan spell at Leuven initially looked to be promising, as he began to play regular football, but since October he's found himself out of that side, and with him struggling to get regular minutes in the Belgian Pro League we feel that there's a chance that he'll go down in rating when the Premier League is reviewed. Despite looking like a good prospect when he first burst on to the seen and joined Watford, he's left Venezuelan supporters bemoaning a lack of work ethic and a waste of a talent. With him leaving the club, it'll be down to Josh Maja (82), Lukas Nmecha (82), Rabbi Matondo (80), Aaron Connolly (78) and Michael Obafemi (76) to compete for a place as the clubs starting strikers. Josh Maja has performed well when called upon, so is likely to lead the line to begin with in Penaranda's absence, but throughout the season that spot will be very much up for grabs. We're looking to use the player in a trade deal to bring another foreign player owned by Watford, who's seen to be the more highly rated prospect at the moment. However, we'll wait until confirmation of that deal to announce the signing. Penaranda's final match for HJK, and final game within the UNAC set up will fittingly be tonight, away from home against his former club SK Brann, who he had a productive spell with in Season 2.
  6. Season 5, Turn 6 - Update With five league games, and our first cup game played, we've taken to life in Division 2 really well. In our six matches, we've won five and lost just the one game, as despite the step up in competition, we seem to be doing well tactically and have the strength in depth to cause sides in this division problems. We felt that we may be due a slow start, and that our form would probably pick up once the Premier League had been reviewed, but it's incredibly encouraging for us to be exceeding expectation before the boost that we are due to receive once we get notable rating increases to many of our first team squad.

  7. Club Record Update (Season 5 - Turn 6) Bailey Peacock-Farrell has recently lost his place in the side to Aaron Ramsdale, but has become the first HJK player to make 150 appearances for the club. Meanwhile, David Brooks and Patrick Roberts become the fifth and sixth players to become club centurions respectively, whilst Tosin Adarabioyo and Daniel James both manage to earn their place in the all time top ten in most appearances for the club. Adalberto Penaranda maintains his place as the clubs all time top scorer and the players with the most assists in the clubs history, with very few chances in terms of both of those top ten lists. Josh Maja has just about managed to make his way in the top ten for most assists, with his total of seven fairly impressive given his limited amount of games for the club. Most League Appearances: 1. Bailey Peacock-Farrell - 151 appearances 2. Aaron Wan-Bissaka - 129 appearances 3. Jamal Lewis - 121 appearances = Chris Mepham - 121 appearances 5. David Brooks - 102 appearances 6.

  8. He doesn't need to give an apology for being clueless.
  9. Presumably because of the Christmas/New Year period, they are slower to review at this time of year which is fair enough really. You can see the difference already to their play.
  10. Pedro Neto's already a 78 rated player, so we're looking at a rating increase to 80. I think Guendouzi's performances might only see him increase to 87. Also with Sheffield United, I think Mousset's goals and assists should get him a +1, and I think whilst he's played virtually every minute, given how little he played last season I'm not sure Lundstram will get such a big jump straight away, so I reckon he'll get to 84. Just my views, but as always great work. Have a good New Year mate!

  12. He's injured and has been throughout that spell. Again, you've made a bit of a mug of yourself. In that time neither Marcos Alonso or Emerson have covered themselves in glory, and they've lost to both Southampton and Bournemouth at home. Until they sign a better left-back (possibly Chilwell), there best defence is Azpilicueta at left-back and James at right-back. See any Chelsea fan and they'll tell you the same. Why you keep on bringing this up when clearly you don't watch them, I'm not sure, as it leads you to just embarrassing yourself with how little you know about him, anybody the watches Chelsea would know he's injured. We've had a Chelsea fan on here who's backed up exactly what I've said. Obviously the injury won't help his chances in the review coming up, but overall he's a great talent to get your hands on.
  13. There's only three clubs available, apply quickly before they fill up. After that I'll add you on to a waiting list but it's simply first come, first served. Rules are simple, you can only sign players aged 21 and under, a squad cap of 60 and no buying from unmanaged clubs. Gameworld ID: 384058
  14. Transfers Out Glenn Middleton Age: 19 Rating: 76 Original Rating: 70 Appearances: 0; Goals: 0; Assists: 0; Average Rating: N/A We've let go of Middleton as well to the same Division 5 club in Rigas, for a combined £1 million. It's not an awful lot of money, but enough to make them profitable signings, and it's cash that we'll be able to reinvest. Middleton's had a really disappointing season, with a failed loan spell at Hibs, and whilst he's still only 19 we only really want to have players in Scotland that are particularly excelling. He's got competition within our squad from Dwight McNeil, who's the same age as him but playing every week in the Premier League and with that he's going to struggle to break in to our side even if he does kick on in Scotland, so we feel he's best off at a club that values him more highly. Other players that are risk of being moved on are Ryan Nyambe (78), Rakeem Harper (76) and Marcus McGuane (75), but all will be given a bit more time to see if they can show us they have more about them. We're also getting to a stage where Joao Carvalho (82) might not be needed at all, and even though we won't get good value for him given that he's over 21, if we don't think he can increase from that rating then there'll be little point at all keeping him, which is showing the strength that we have within the squad. We're now at a position where our chairman is happy for us to loan out 80 rated players, which has seen both Joe Rodon and Rabbi Matondo go out on loan, and could potentially see Mikey Johnston follow them out on loan as well, after we assess our squad following the review of the Premier League which is fast approaching.
  15. Transfers Out Tom Dele-Bashiru Age: 20 Rating: 73 Original Rating: 73 Appearances: 0; Goals: 0; Assists: 0; Average Rating: N/A We've let go of another player, again due to the difficulties we've got with the squad cap of 60 players. We signed Dele-Bashiru on the basis that he would be part of Watford's first team squad this season. However, with Watford struggling this season, he's not had any opportunities and has featured just once this season for them as a substitute in the League Cup. With Nigel Pearson as manager, and the emphasis of the club being on them getting back to basics, I don't expect him to feature at all for them in the league this season. He still definitely has a lot of potential, and an ideal world we'll keep hold of him, but we're happy enough to let him go to a Division 5 side in Rigas where he'll be more valued, as we feel by the time he starts getting games that players like Todd Cantwell will be a long way ahead of him and he'd struggle to ever close that gap.
  16. Just thought I'd quote a small section of this post, but great work again and some comments on it. Mepham I think will get an 84, even if his overall minutes aren't that great. He'll play 90 minutes every game up until the review, and added to that being a regular for Wales will help his cause. Aaron Ramsdale (80) is an absolute must buy for anybody. He is the first first-choice goalkeeper aged 21 or under to be playing in the Premier League regularly since David De Gea was 21 years old in 2011. It's so hard for goalkeepers of his age to be playing in the Premier League, but he's done brilliantly. He'll be play every game from now until the end of the season, and I'd expect him to be rated 86/87 come the end of the season. Trossard has shown potential since joining Brighton, he won't rise for now but one to keep an eye on. Also at Brighton, it's worth nothing that Ben White (80) and Molumby (73) are both doing really well out on loan, and should get increases when they're reviewed. Alzate and Connolly are absolute must buys as well, both great players.
  17. Few clubs are still available if anyone's interested in taking them on.
  18. Rating Changes Rabbi Matondo, 76 > 80 On the whole, quite a successful review of the Bundesliga as Rabbi Matondo gets his deserved rating increase to 80. If he can continue to feature on a semi-regular basis for Schalke, then we can expect him to continue to increase in rating later on in the season. He's also had a position change, which means he can now play as an out and out striker, which puts him in contention for a place in the fringes of the first team. With players like Matondo achieving his rating, we're going to have to consider letting go of some of the older players with a similar rating, given that they're unlikely to ever feature ahead of someone like Rabbi who's reached this rating at the age of just 19.

  21. Transfers In Owen Otasowie Age: 18 Rating: 70 Predicted Rating: 73 He's only played 45 minutes for Wolves first team, but is another young prospect that we've picked up that we have high hopes for. He's only 18, and only just Wolves a couple of years ago from New York City, but has progressed superbly well and has been brilliant in their youth team. As a result, he's already made his first team debut for the club in the Europa League, and has been linked with lots of the top clubs in Europe, including PSG. We're now up to as many as 58 players in our squad, just two shy of the squad cap. So we're going to have to make some big decisions pretty soon on the futures of players such as Glenn Middleton, Ryan Nyambe, Marcus McGuane, Rakeem Harper and even Joao Carvalho who may all have to leave the club to make room for us to be in with a chance of bringing in some of the best prospects that are being added to the database this season.

  22. Rating Changes Lukas Nmecha, 80 > 82 Following Josh Maja's rating increase, Lukas Nmecha had a similar rating increase. Nmecha had less minutes under his belt, and was very much on the borderline of getting a rating increase. He's been in and out of the Wolfsburg team, and will have to do quite a bit more to impress enough to earn a permanent transfer to the club, with Wolfsburg having the option of making his loan deal permanent at the end of the season for around £11 million. At his new rating, and with his versatility to play as an out and out striker as well as a winger, he could well now find himself on the fringes of the first team. He's been with us since the beginning of the game world, but until now had only been able to make 12 appearances in his first four seasons of the club, and with this rating increase he could well improve on that total. ST: Penaranda (83), Maja (82), L. Nmecha (82), Connolly (78), Obafemi (76)
  23. Schalke can't be, as Rabbi Matondo hasn't risen yet.
  24. Transfers In Jayson Molumby Age: 20 Rating: 73 Predicted Rating: 78 We've been tracking Molumby for a while, and after another club came in with a bid for him, we decided to make him a part of our squad after his progress this season. Molumby is part of the Brighton youth academy, that fellow HJK players Ben White, Steven Alzate and Aaron Connolly are a part of, and with Graham Potter in charge of the club we're happy that they're under a manager that is going to give opportunities to youngsters, and when Molumby's loan spell at the end of the season finishes we think he will have the opportunity of Premier League football at Brighton. He's currently on loan at Millwall, and whilst he was in and out of the team under Neil Harris, under Gary Rowett he's been an ever present in their midfield and he's been getting rave reviews recently from there fans who believe he's been one of the key differences since Rowett's come in, which has seen them move up to mid-table. He's also picked up nine caps for Ireland U21's, and is currently their captain, and must be knocking on the door for a potential debut within the next year or so.

  25. NK Olimpia have been taken, but still fantastic opportunities to manage in a competitive setup. There's no signing players over the age of 21, so sometimes you need to bring in a 17 or 18 year old prospect as the only way to improve your squad. You've still got the opportunity to take on sides with top players which can give you a helping hand.
