  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  6. Transfers In Lewis O'Brien Age: 21 Rating: 77 Predicted Rating: 80 Not so much of a gamble is Lewis O'Brien, who despite being a similar age and rating to Dasilva is a snip financially at just £0.5 million. O'Brien looks an even stronger signing as well, as he's been an ever present for Huddersfield this season, who have recently taken an upturn in form towards mid table in the Championship. Of all of Huddersfield's players to play more than one game this season, O'Brien has the second highest average rating on whoscored of 6.89, chipping in with both goals and assists this season from midfield and has also had the versatility to fill in as a left-back as well. We expect him to hit at least 80 when the Championship review comes around at the end of the season, and given how little we've spent on him, that will represent a guaranteed profit and with him only just turning 21 we've got plenty of time to assess whether we should then move him on, or keep hold of him. Despite spending less than a third of the initial transfer fee that we've spent on Josh Dasilva, we're more optimistic about the signing of Lewis O'Brien who I believe has more potential. The guaranteed profit we'll make on O'Brien, makes us more inclined to have a gamble on Dasilva and see how he develops over the next year, given that we've secured the signing of both for a combined £2.3 million, which is how I prefer to comprehend the signings as.

  7. Transfers In Josh Dasilva Age: 21 Rating: 78 Predicted Rating: 80 We've taken a bit of a gamble, in bringing in Josh Da Silva to the club for £1.8 million. It's quite a hefty fee for us to pay for a 78 rated player, but with the amount of cash that is coming in to the club in either prize money or player sales, £600k over his initial asking price isn't really a significant amount of money for us. Josh has established himself as a regular at Brentford in the Championship, where last season he played 21 games and scored 1 goal. This season he's pushed on again and in 15 games, he's scored 3 goals from a holding midfield position. Dasilva is very versatile though, and as well as playing in holding midfield he's also been able to play at left-back. With the minutes he's currently playing at Brentford, and how well he's done so far this season, we're expecting a rating increase to at least 80 by the time he's reviewed at the end of the season. From there, we'll assess the extent to which we think he can push on even further, but we're fairly confident that we'll make a profit on him even if he doesn't amount to much more than being a regular in the Championship with Brentford.

  8. Transfers Out Allan Campbell Age: 21 Rating: 78 Original Rating: 67 Appearances: 5; Goals: 1; Assists: 1; Average Rating: 5.80 Campbell is another player we signed at the very beginning of the setup, but despite featuring a few times for us early on in the set up has been able to play for the club since Season 1. Like Nyambe, Campbell is a player we rate quite highly, and someone who we feel has the potential to either do well in England or to go to a top Scottish side like Celtic and Rangers, as the current captain of the Scottish U21 side. However, after the recent review of the SPL, we can't be too confident that someone like Campbell is ever going to get the rating he deserves, given that the league isn't even reviewed annually and when it has been reviewed it's not been done correctly. With us waiting potentially until 2021 for him to get the 80 rating he deserves, we've accepted an offer of £2 million for him from FC Tokyo and with that he has an opportunity to potentially get games at another club within the setup. In future we're going to be extremely hesitant on which players we take on from Scotland, but have still been able to make a good profit on an initial £180k signing.
  9. Any thoughts on whether Bordeaux's Josh Maja (80) will increase in rating? Hasn't played that many minutes this season (349), but has been Bordeaux's second choice striker, coming on as a sub in nearly every game for them. In terms of minutes it doesn't look too favourable, but in terms of how highly he's rated he'd be unfortunate not to increase.
  10. Transfers Out Ryan Nyambe Age: 21 Rating: 78 Original Rating: 78 Appearances: 29; Goals: 0; Assists: 0; Average Rating: 6.00 A player who we've taken a lot more time deliberating on whether or not to sell was Ryan Nyambe, who we eventually reluctantly allowed to leave for Red Star Belgrade for £2 million, having signed him in place of Anthony Ralston in September 2018. Nyambe has recently got himself back in to the Blackburn Rovers side at right-back and has been impressing, and I definitely think that by the time the Championship is reviewed at the end of the season he'll get his deserved rating increase to 80 with Blackburn doing well enough in mid-table. However, he's about to turn 22, and this is our last opportunity to sell him on to another game world manager for higher than a chairman's value fee. We don't feel his transfer value will raise above £2 million when he is next reviewed, and with him unlikely to feature for us in the meantime we might as well let him go now to another manager who can make use of him and save ourselves some wages. Part of the decision to let Nyambe go was just how strong we are in terms of strength in depth at right-back. Nyambe is a good defender in the Championship, but we have two good Championship right-backs in Thomas Edwards and Jayden Bogle, as well as three good Premier League right-backs in Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Reece James and Max Aarons which has proved to be too much competition for him. Nyambe was an important player for us initially, as a regular at right-back in Season 1, but with the signing of players like Max Aarons and the rise of Aaron Wan-Bissaka, he hasn't been able to get much of a look in the side in recent seasons. He has featured for us sporadically since, including one appearance this season, and has always been solid when called upon and I'm sure he'll do well at Red Star Belgrade particularly when he gets his rating increase.
  11. Transfers Out Mallik Wilks Age: 21 Rating: 78 Original Rating: 77 Appearances: 0; Goals: 0; Assists: 0; Average Rating: N/A Leaving the club as well is a much more recent signings in Mallik Wilks, who'll move on to FC Tokyo for £1.2 million, having signed for HJK for £0.4 million at the beginning of the season. Wilks never featured for the first team, and was only ever a back up option for the club in attack and didn't get to the standard needed to feature with the current strength the club has in that area of the pitch. We've decided to let go of Wilks as it's taking him a while to adjust to the Championship at Barnsley, he's only scored the one goal and has largely featured off the bench for them recently, and with the club struggling and looking to be heading towards relegation I'm not confident he'll still be a Championship player next season. He still obviously has talent, and did excel in League 1 for him this season, but with things not particularly going his way and us having the opportunity to make a strong profit on him and free up some more space for the clubs squad cap.
  12. Transfers Out Andre Green Age: 21 Rating: 78 Original Rating: 77 Appearances: 26; Goals: 14; Assists: 15; Average Rating: 6.42 We've decided to freshen things up slightly going in to the new season, whether we're in Division 3 or Division 2. The first player to go is Andre Green, due to his club form. We've had Green since Season 1, but he hasn't quite lived up to his potential in the way that some of our other initial signings have done. His career has stalled this season slightly at Preston North End, where he's not been able to break in to the first team yet and whilst he still clearly has a lot of talent and things still might fall his way, he seems like a clear choice when it comes to letting one or two players go to allow some more room for new signings within the squad cap. We've got a strong transfer fee for him as well, of his maximum transfer value or £2.4 million to Red Star Belgrade, which we'll be able to use to reinvest in new signings and still represents a good profit from his signing fee of £0.8 million despite his lack of progress. On the pitch for us Green was exceptional in the amount of games he ended up playing for us, and in Division 2 was comfortably one of our best players having scored 11 goals and assisted a further 15 in just 19 games. He leaves the club currently in seventh in the goal scoring charts and as sixth in the charts for the most assists, despite only playing 26 league games for HJK. The increase in ratings of players such as Dan James and Dwight McNeil has prevented him from playing more often, and in the last couple of seasons he's predominantly been out on loan, most notably at CD Aguila where he scored 7 goals in 31 games and I'd expect him to be among the goals if given games at his new club.

  15. Season 4, Turn 38 - Update Unfortunately it wasn't to be automatic promotion for HJK this season, as we just left ourselves too much to do with some difficult fixtures at the end of the season. It has to be said that it was an overwhelmingly successful season on the whole though, just missing out on automatic promotion in our first season at this level. We still do have a chance of promotion though, as on Saturday we face off against Numancia in the play-offs. It's going to be a tough test for us, against what on paper is the strongest side in the league, but we have had the benefit of being able to rest players on the final day of the season and also have the home advantage in the play-off due to our superior league position. Adalberto Penaranda finished the season as the most creative player in the division, with nineteen league assists topping the charts in Division 3. David Brooks had the sixth highest average rating in Division 3 in what has been an impressive season for the midfield, who will by vying with Penaranda for the clubs Player of the Season awards which will commence following the end of the play-offs. The club have been awarded nearly £8 million in prize money due to the clubs record high league finish, which puts them in a very healthy financial position to try and acquire new talent for the club going in to Season 5.

  16. Player Update - Dylan Levitt Despite being ranked towards the bottom of the rankings for potential, in the last month or so Dylan Levitt has really pushed on and made great strides to becoming a top professional. He's regularly been picked by Ryan Giggs in Wales squads, despite failing to pick up a cap, and recently for Man. United he's been excelling in their U23's. He's played well enough to earn himself a debut against Astana, where he played 90 minutes and impressed, and with United particularly week in central midfield he's in with a chance of featuring more for the first team this season. I'd also expect him to make his Welsh debut in the friendlies in March.
  17. International Update Completely missed that Ryan Nyambe had been called up for Namibia's recent African Cup of Nations qualifiers against Chad and Guinea. Nyambe played the ninety minutes for Namibia in both games, as they managed to beat Chad 2-1, but fell to a 2-0 defeat against Guinea, taking himself up to four caps for his country. These appearances will do a lot to win support from the fans of the Namibian National Team, who were unconvinced that he was completely loyal to the nation having only played for them in the finals of the previous African Cup of Nations tournament. Unfortunately, he did pick up an illness on international duty and was left out of Blackburn's team on the weekend, but players picking up regular international caps are good for the club.

  19. Rating Changes Steven Alzate, 72 > 78 After his first two caps for Colombia, Steven Alzate gets a rating increase ahead of the Premier League review next month. It's fully deserved, and puts him in line to get a more significant rating increase in the review which should put him in the first team picture. We're hoping with that review, he can get a rating increase to around 82, which would be deserved for someone who's played the majority of Premier League minutes for Brighton this season and looks like an important part of their future plans. CM: Brooks (87), Cash (82), R. James (82), Cantwell (80), Alzate (78), Campbell (78), Kane (78), Tavernier (77), Harper (76), McGuane (75), Gilmour (75), F.

  21. International Update (Full Internationals), November International Break - Second Fixtures Steven Alzate (72) followed his international debut earlier in the week by playing ninety minutes for Colombia in their 1-0 friendly win away at Ecuador. Alzate played well in the game, and donned the number ten shirt that is usually worn by the injured James Rodriguez. His shirt number, and his full game in the friendly suggests that Colombia expect very big things from Alzate in the future. Dan James (85) and Chris Mepham (83) both won their tenth caps for Wales in a huge game for their countries, as they beat Hungary 2-0 to earn qualification to this summers European Championships. Both performed well, and are expected to be starters in Wales third ever major tournament finals which will be a big achievement for them. The currently injured Joe Rodon (80) and David Brooks (87) will also take part in the tournament this summer, whilst Rabbi Matondo (76) and Dylan Levitt (70) were both unused substitutes and are in with a chance of making the final squad. Bailey Peacock Farrell (80) earned his fourteenth cap for Northern Ireland, in a disappointing 6-1 defeat away to Germany. Germany were on fire in front of goal on the day, and I only really think he could have done better for one of the goals, whilst he also made some important saves, so I think questions will be asked further up the pitch and the overall performance of the side. Northern Ireland were missing HJK man and key defender Jamal Lewis, who went back to Norwich to get a knee injury assessed which didn't help their chances in the game. Northern Ireland are in the play-offs though with a chance of still qualifying for the European Championships, where they face Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Semi-Finals and they'll need both Peacock-Farrell and Lewis fit for that game to give themselves a good chance of getting a result. None of our three players in the Irish squad featured for them in their disappointing 1-1 draw with Denmark, with Aaron Connolly (73) ruled out of the game through injury. Ireland will now also have to compete in the play-offs for a chance of making the European Championships in March, where they will face Slovakia away in the Semi-Finals, and if Aaron Connolly is fit then he'll be in contention to start that game for them.

  24. Club Record Update (Season 4 - Turn 36) As we near the end of the season we've got an update of the clubs records. Bailey Peacock-Farrell is still out in front as our top appearance maker, despite Aaron Ramsdale getting a couple of games this season as Aaron Wan-Bissaka has recently struggled with injury. Adalberto Penaranda is the new addition to the top ten appearance makers, as a regular starter for us up front whilst there's plenty of players who've now made over fifty appearances that aren't far off Reece Oxford's and Keinan Davis's totals in the first two seasons of the club. Adalberto Penaranda has become the clubs records goalscorer with twenty nine goals, although he's got plenty of competition for that spot with David Brooks outscoring him so far this season. Penaranda has extended his lead for creating the most goals with an impressive thirty four, as he leads the way for assists in Division 3 this season. Most League Appearances: 1.

  25. International Update (Youth Internationals), November International Break - First Fixtures Albania U21 0-3 England U21 - Aaron Ramsdale (80) earned his sixth cap, Marc Guehi (73) his fifth and Reece James (82) his first cap with all playing the full ninety minutes as England U21's kept a clean sheet. Ebere Eze (82) came off the bench with nine minutes to go for his first cap at this age group. Dwight McNeil (83) and Max Aarons (83) both failed to get off the bench. There next fixture is a friendly against the Netherlands on Tuesday. Scotland U21 0-1 Greece U21 - Allan Campbell (78) captained Scotland U21's in a disappointing defeat to Greece in his nineteenth cap for the age group, playing the full ninety minutes. Billy Gilmour (75) also played ninety minutes in his eleventh cap, but having watched Scotland's narrow win to Cyprus I don't see a reason why he shouldn't be given a chance in the first team. Glenn Middleton (76) came off the bench for his nineteenth cap, whilst Ewan Henderson (76) wasn't able to make it off the bench. Mikey Johnston (78) had initially been called up, but withdrew from the squad through injury. Germany U21 2-3 Belgium U21 - Lukas Nmecha (80) earned his eighth cap for the age group in their disappointing home defeat to Belgium, as he played the fully ninety minutes up front. Portugal U20 0-4 England U20 - Nathan Ferguson (73) earned his third U20 cap, playing the full ninety minutes and keeping a clean sheet. Jayden Bogle (78) came off the bench for his third cap, Marcus Tavernier (77) for his fourteenth and Jack Clarke (77) for his fifth cap. England U18 5-2 Russia U18, England U18 4-4 Norway U18 - Nathan Wood (67) played two full games for England U18's, earning his seventh and eighth caps for the age group. He's still got plenty to learn but is very much a part of the England set up.
