  1. Full Internationals Adalberto Penaranda (Venezuela) - 15 caps, 0 goals Bailey Peacock-Farrell (Northern Ireland) - 13 caps, 0 goals David Brooks (Wales) - 12 caps, 1 goal Jamal Lewis (Northern Ireland) - 12 caps, 0 goals Dan James (Wales) - 9 caps, 2 goal Chris Mepham (Wales) - 9 caps, 0 goals Antonee Robinson (United States) - 7 caps, 0 goals Joe Rodon (Wales) - 4 caps, 0 goals Rabbi Matondo (Wales) - 4 caps, 0 goals Ryan Nyambe (Namibia) - 2 caps, 0 goals Mark Travers (Ireland) - 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 Steven Alzate (Colombia) - 1 cap, 0 goals
  2. International Update (Full Internationals), November International Break - First Fixtures Steven Alzate (72) made his international debut for Colombia, coming on for Juan Cuadrado (91) to play in the last 15 minutes of their 1-0 victory over Peru. Alzate donned the number 7 shirt, and certainly looked to be good enough to be playing at that level. He's reportedly impressed for them in the training camp, and will be looking to get a second cap in their friendly with Ecuador on Tuesday night. Alzate will be aiming to play at the Tokyo Olympics for Colombia U23's, with Colombia hosting the qualification tournament in January and February. It's been a fantastic few months for him, and I'd credit it largely to Graham Potter, who's also given league debuts to HJK team mates Dan James (85), Joe Rodon (80) and Aaron Connolly (73) as he certainly has a knack for finding talent. Daniel James (85) won his ninth cap for Wales in their victory over Azerbaijan, setting up Harry Wilson for Wales crucial second goal. James was fantastic as Wales go to within one game of qualifying for Euro 2020. Chris Mepham (83) also won his ninth cap, as he played his first football since recovering from injury in September. Rabbi Matondo (76) came off the bench for the last ten minutes for Dan James, making his fourth cap and looking lively on the left wing. Northern Ireland were unfortunate not to beat the Netherlands, missing a penalty which proved to be crucial as they drew 0-0. Bailey Peacock-Farrell (80) won his 13th cap and Jamal Lewis (83) won his 12th cap, as they both kept a clean sheet and both continue to impress for their country. If these boys are committed enough, then they've both got the talent to go on and become centurions for Northern Ireland. I'd expect both to feature in Northern Ireland's final qualifying match away to Germany. Mark Travers (73) came off the bench to earn his second cap for Ireland, in their 3-1 win over New Zealand. In his time on the pitch, he kept a clean sheet and looks to be on an impressive trajectory for a keeper of his age, with him still only being 20 years of age. Neither Michael Obafemi (73) or Aaron Connolly featured for them, with Connolly (73) expected to play in their crucial qualifying match with Denmark on Monday if he's fit to play.
  3. Season 4, Turn 36 - Update Not long since the last update, but with just three games remaining now and the push for promotion heating up we've managed to get ourselves back in the top three with a win over promotion rivals Partizani. We beat Partizani at home thanks to goals from wingers Patrick Roberts and Dan James, which puts us just three games away from promotion to Division 3 as Botosani dropped points in their 1-1 draw at home to Qarabag. The win also completely assures us of a place in the play-offs, if we were to miss out on automatic promotion. Servette have also clinched the Division 3 title with three games to spare, and have been brilliant this season. Remaining Fixtures: Game 36: Levadia (6th) Away Game 37: Servette (1st) Home Game 38: Caracas (17th) Away We've still got lots of work to do, with three difficult fixtures remaining. First, we have to travel to a Levadia side who have won there last three games and are still very much in the hunt for promotion as they close in on assuring themselves of a play-off place. Levadia have a strong side, led by key man Jonathan David (85) who leads their line having scored 11 goals and assisted a further 10 this season. Then, despite it being our only remaining home game, we have our toughest remaining fixture against Servette. We're facing the strongest side in the division, who have star quality throughout their side such as James Maddison (88), Angelino (87) and Matteo Guendouzi (86), whilst Christian Kouame (86) has been their best player in their league campaign with an average rating of 7.83 which is a league high. We then travel to Caracas on the final day, more than likely needing to win to give ourselves a chance of promotion. Caracas are currently fighting to stay in the division, and may need a victory to keep themselves up. Despite their struggles this season, they aren't to be underestimated with players of the quality of Marcus Thuram (86) and Volodymyr Shepelyev (85). Division 3 League Table 1.

  4. How long do we reckon before the start of the big five league review. Last week of November? Probably France to begin with?
  5. Transfers In Tommy Doyle Age: 18 Rating: 73 Predicted Rating: 73 We've brought in another academy player from Man. City, with the signing of promising central midfielder Tommy Doyle. Doyle's featured once for Man. City's first team so far this season, playing 90 minutes in their home win over Southampton in the League Cup, but we expect him to feature for them in at least one of Man. City's remaining two Champions League group stage matches against Shakhtar and Dinamo Zagreb with City virtually already through to the knockout stages. We still think he's a long way off making it in to the first team, but given his age he's definitely someone worth taking a punt on as he's only going to go up in rating and wouldn't be featuring at this age for City's first team unless he was exceptionally talented. Other Current or Former Man. City Academy Players: Patrick Roberts (Original Rating 84, Current Rating 84) Tosin Adarabioyo (Original Rating 75, Current Rating 82) Lukas Nmecha (Original Rating 73, Current Rating 80) Rabbi Matondo (Original Rating 73, Current Rating 76) Felix Nmecha (Original Rating 73, Current Rating 73) Tom Dele-Bashiru (Original Rating 73, Current Rating 73)
  6. Season 4, Turn 35 - Update With now just four games to go in the season, we're very much still in the hunt for the final two automatic promotion places that are up for grabs. With few points left to play for, Servette have already guaranteed promotion to Division 2, with us competing alongside Partizani, Botosani and Astana for the final two automatic spots, although those failing to secure promotion automatically will have another chance through the play-offs. Our next game sees us face our direct promotion rival Partizani at home, which is a huge six pointer for the club, and it's games like these which will ultimately decide what division we'll play in next season. We've had to deal without key man Aaron Wan-Bissaka recently, which has been a blow, but he's now back fit for the final four games which is vital for us. He'll be hoping to emulate the performances of key performers such as David Brooks, who's goal tally for the season has now reached 15 from midfield, whilst Adalberto Penaranda's 18 assists looks set to see him finish the season as Division 3's top creator.

  12. Highlight Performances (1st November to 3rd November) Matty Cash (82) has been brilliant this season for Nottingham Forest, and won his first Man of the Match award in their win away at Luton. He's been playing right back for them this season, and has been excelling in an unfamiliar position. Forest are still in the mix for automatic promotion, and are currently fifth in the league with a game in hand. If he continues his form then he might get a marginal rating increase, but any real rating increase for him will only come from a promotion to the Premier League or a transfer to a Premier League club and his recent form can only help the chances of either of those things happening. After a struggling start in his loan spell for Blackburn Tosin Adarabioyo (82) has pushed on, established himself as a regular for the club and had his best game yet for the club as he was named Man of the Match in the sides 2-1 win over Sheffield Wednesday. Adarabioyo scored the equaliser, with his first professional goal which certainly helped towards winning the Man of the Match award and a place in the Championship's Team of the Week. He's got a lot of competition at centre back now at the club, so he needs to push on and it's great to see him playing regularly again, and this season in the far more familiar position of centre half. Ben White (80) kept a clean sheet with Leeds in their win at home to QPR, helping the club's chances of a promotion to the Premier League. This is becoming fairly routine for White, but it's still good from him nevertheless. I'd be very surprised if he's not a Premier League defender next season. Aaron Ramsdale (80) is now the highest points scoring goalkeepers in Fantasy Football, and with that builds up his publicity and the calls for him to be selected as part of England's squad this month for their qualifying matches. Ramsdale kept his third consecutive clean sheet in a 1-0 victory over Man. United, and is establishing himself as one of the in form goalkeepers in the Premier League. With every strong performance comes an increased chance of a strong rating increase, and given that it's currently our weakest position on the pitch it's great news for us as we look to try and push on and get promoted. Lukas Nmecha (80) had an important first start for Wolfsburg, which is vital in his development. It was generally a disappointing day for Wolfsburg, in a 3-0 defeat away to Borussia Dortmund, but it's an important step in his development to have his first start at the highest level. Hopefully he goes on to start plenty more games for Wolfsburg this season, as it's a high standard of football and he could get a decent rating increase next month if he does get a few more starts. Jayden Bogle (78) picked up his third assist of the season from full back, despite missing large parts of the start of the season through injury. He's really developing his all round game, and I think has developed a lot as a full back from last season. Fair play to Frank Lampard, who certainly knows how to spot a talent, and he's definitely on the path to becoming a Premier League player. There's so much talent right now in Britain at full back, and with some of the players more highly regarded joining top clubs, there's room for Bogle to be a replacement for players like Wan-Bissaka at Crystal Palace or potentially for Max Aarons if he does leave Norwich. Allan Campbell (78) has been outstanding this season, and a big part of Motherwell's success so far this season. He scored the winner for them this week in their 2-1 win at home to Livingston, and could well have got the whoscored Man of the Match is they did review the SPL. That's Campbell's biggest problem at the moment, in that he's playing in a league that just isn't given the proper attention and whilst he's at Motherwell he's not going to be reviewed properly. He should be at a far higher rating, as he's got a bit of everything, he's bossing the midfield for them and will need to earn a move for it to be worthwhile for us to keep him. Keep playing like he did this weekend though, and it'll be hard to ignore him for too much longer.

  15. Rating Changes Aaron Connolly, 73 > 78 After becoming a regular for Brighton in the Premier League, along with HJK team mate Steven Alzate, Aaron Connolly has been given a moderate rating increase that helps him on his way to becoming our best striker. We certainly think he has the capability and the talent to lead the line for us in the future, and we expect his rating increase to continue when the Premier League is properly reviewed next month where we expect him to reach a rating of at least 82. Since his first Premier League start against Spurs, where he scored twice, he has started all three of Brighton's Premier League games as well as starting in Ireland's crucial Euro 2020 qualifier away to Switzerland. He's failed to find the net in any of those games, but did win a crucial penalty against Everton that helped Brighton to win the match and given how well they are doing I'd fully expect Connolly and Alzate to remain in the starting line up for the most part going in to the Premier League review. ST: Penaranda (83), Maja (80), Nmecha (80), Connolly (78), Wilks (78), Hirst (78), Obafemi (76)
  16. The reason Hudson-Odoi isn't down to increase in rating by your formula yet is because he was injured at the beginning of the season, and has only just come back from injury. Otherwise, he'd be nailed on and still should be. It's a similar case for Reece James, who also missed a lot of the start of the season with injury but has recently been starting in the Champions League and League Cup, and has come off the bench for Chelsea in virtually every game. He should increase to about 84, and I imagine both James and Hudson-Odoi's performance on your table will look significantly better in a month's time as long as they avoid any further injuries.

  18. Player Update With the recent international break coming up, and Steven Alzate choosing to represent Colombia, on a similar front Ebere Eze has turned down the chance to represent Nigeria in their African Cup of Nations qualifiers against Benin and Lesotho. Nigeria could definitely use a player of Eze's quality, as he's definitely a level above Oghenekaro Etebo of Stoke who's managed to accumulate 35 caps by the age of 23 playing in the same position as him. Eze has said that he wants time to consider his choice between England and Nigeria, given that he's been assured of a place in England's U21 squad for upcoming qualifying matches and at his age and performing the way he is in the Championship he will feel there's still a chance he could represent England at full international level in time.
  19. Season 4, Turn 31 - Update With eight games left in the season, we're very much in the race for the final two automatic promotion places. We've been doing well recently, but the sides around us have being doing similarly well. In our final eight games of the season, we still have to play the two teams above us Botosani and Partizani at home, which are crucial games that will determine our fate come the end of the season. Even though our form has been matched by our automatic promotion play off rivals, our good form looks to have guaranteed us a place in the play-offs with us having a comfortable eleven point gap on eighth place with eight games remaining. If we aren't to get promoted automatically, then we'd certainly back ourselves as the favourites to get promoted through the play-offs. At that stage, we may even have the benefit of having first team players with improved ratings with the beginning of the review of the top five leagues set to occur at the end of this month. We definitely feel when the big five leagues are reviewed that we'll have a squad worthy of being in Division 2, and if we don't get promoted then we'll definitely be one of the early favourites to get promoted next season. It would be nice to make that step though as soon as possible though, and put us on our way to the ambition of becoming a top flight club. The stand out players this season have been David Brooks and Adalberto Penaranda, with David Brooks surprisingly currently our top scorer despite playing in holding midfield. Despite playing in a more advanced role, Penaranda has specialised in being the main creative spark in our side, and currently has more assists than any other player in the division.

  21. Player Update Steven Alzate has been called up to the full Colombian squad for their friendly games next month with their friendlies against Peru and Ecuador. That's no mean feat, given the strength in depth that Colombia have to choose from, with their entire squad all playing in the biggest leagues or for the biggest clubs in the world. Alzate was born in Camden, but both his parents are Colombian and he's chosen to represent them. He's the third HJK player, eligible to play for England that has represented a country outside of Britain at full international level after Antonee Robinson (United States) Josh Maja (Nigeria) and Ryan Nyambe (DR Congo). HJK players still eligible to represent multiple countries at full international level: Aaron Wan-Bissaka (England / DR Congo) Max Aarons (England / Jamaica) Eberechi Eze (England / Nigeria) Tosin Adarabioyo (England / Nigeria) Lukas Nmecha (Germany / England / Nigeria) Felix Nmecha (England / Germany / Nigeria) Glenn Middleton (Scotland / England) Marcus McGuane (England / Ireland / Ghana) Marc Guehi (England / Ivory Coast) Tom Dele-Bashiru (Nigeria / England)

  23. Highlight Performances (25th October to 28th October) Aaron Ramsdale (80) is establishing himself as one of the in form goalkeepers in the Premier League, after a clean sheet draw away at Watford followed up a clean sheet at home to Norwich. His place as Bournemouth's number one goalkeeper this season is becoming more and more assured with each week, and with Jordan Pickford bitterly out of form he's putting himself in contention to be a part of the next England squad. On form, then you'd say Ramsdale, Henderson and Pope would be England's top three goalkeepers, and if he can retain this form throughout the season then it's only a matter of time that he does make the squad. Ben Wilmot (78) makes his first start of the season for Swansea in his loan spell there, having had to be patient due to the form of fellow HJK defender Joe Rodon (80) and boy did he make an impact. His first start came on a huge occasion for the club, in their first South Wales derby in over five years and he rose to the occasion by scoring the only goal in a 1-0 win for the Swans in what has to be his career highlight. Hopefully from here he can kick on and begin to play a lot more football, as he impressed defensively and there should be more opportunities for him this season whether it be at centre half or in holding midfield. Reece James (82) had an encouraging weekend, with his first real appearance in the Premier League as he had 27 minutes off the bench in their 4-2 win against Burnley. He wasn't at fault for either goal, and played very well at right-back where he's showing just how good he can be at this level. I think in time he'll replace Marcos Alonso from the side, and Azpilicueta will move to left-back. Dwight McNeil (83) got his first goal of the season in that defeat to Chelsea, to add to the three assists he has this season. He scored three goals last season, and the aim for him will to be to try and beat that and he's on the way to doing that now. He was named as Burnley's Man of the Match, which was definitely deserved, and despite only being 19 with every performance he's becoming more and more essential to there side with every game. He's really in with a great chance of getting a move in the summer, and if a club does come in for him then Burnley aren't going to be in a position to turn down some of the bids their likely to receive. Daniel James (85) is making a habit of just being brilliant, with an assist and a penalty won away at Norwich. His assist was sublime for Rashford, his second of the season and he'd have had another assist had Marcus Rashford slotted away his penalty. It's nothing new really, but with each performance the more likely he is to hit an increase to 88 next month and it will be fully deserved. Steven Alzate (72) and Aaron Connolly (73) look to be establishing themselves as regulars in Brighton's side, with both again starting in their win against Everton. Alzate was particularly impressive, starting his fifth game for the club this season and was comfortably one of the best players on the pitch. He looks a real talent, and I think adds a lot to this Brighton side in lots of aspects of his game. They're both definitely somebody who can move on to bigger things than Brighton, but for the time being it's great to have been able to bring in two Premier League regulars for a combined £650k. The only thing that might go against them in the next review is that the review might come a little too soon for them to get strong rating increases, but with them playing at this level they'll get regularly reviewed so it's not nearly as big of an issue as it was for players in the Scottish Premiership. Rabbi Matondo (76) is the highlight out of the players playing outside of Britain. He started his third game for Schalke in the Bundesliga so far this season, in their 0-0 draw with rivals Borussia Dortmund, all of which he's played as a striker. He's clearly highly rated by manager David Wagner, who's trusting him in the big games and I think he's going to be a key part of their season. The club are currently in the mix at the top, in seventh place, and if Matondo is able to continue starting games up top then he could get a really good goal return which would see his rating increase quickly and could even see him take over Penaranda's place up top by the end of this season.
