Re: EPL Rating Changes Thread

Now that we are talking about boro i think that Wheater should get a rise to 88/89. He has been grea tthis season and has begun to play even better since Woodgate has left. Plus he has scored 3 goals this season. ;)

Grounds shold get a rise to 76/77 imo. He has started 4 games this season and played a total of 363 min (including the game against L'pool :D)

Aliadiere should get a rise to 88/89 imo as well. He got off to a slow start but has been playing really well off-late. He has scored 4 goals this season and has got 3 assists. Made 24 starts as well ;).

Gary O' Neil should get a rise to 88/89 as well. Started 23 gams and has got 4 assists. He has looked pretty good this season good

Re: EPL Rating Changes Thread

I wouldn't buy Carrick because I'm an english fan' date=' as I'm not, but he's the only 90+ CM , along with Moutinho, left at an unmanaged team in my setup and I'm in desperate need of one. If i had more money I would have bought another, but none of the managers in my setup is willing to sell their players for less than double their value. I hopped that Carrick would be good as he is getting games for Manchester and they are doing great at the moment.[/quote']

Take no notice mate, carrick will be a great buy for you. theres an outside chance he may go up by 1 and he is improving all the time and thriving on the fierce competition to get a place in the man united midfield. hardly the sign of a player with little future.

Re: EPL Rating Changes Thread

I think Brad Friedel has to go up. He is performing regulary well for Blackburn who are doing well in the league. He is also in the "team of the season" until now' date=' alongside his teammate Bentley[/quote']

Agreed, I am a big fan of Friedel, and he is a real class keeper for Rovers. I've been up to Ewood a fait few times recently and he has been Outstanding. Other than Bentely I would say he's Rovers key man, and single handedly keeps them in so many games.

And I've met him and got his autograph, along with Bentley, Pederson, McCarthy and pretty much Rovers whole team :D

S. Larsson - Birmingham

I think this guy deserves a +1 rating change' date=' ive been quite impressed this season when i have seen him play, and not many players at all (only around 4/5 i think) have played more minutes for Birmingham this season. On top of that, he has scored 5 goals from wide midfield including a couple of top quality long range efforts, most memorably against Spurs. He has performed better (in my opinion), and more regularly than the likes of Kapo (88), Johnson (86) and Nafti (86), and defintely deserves an increase, despite his teams position.[/font']

Re: EPL Rating Changes Thread

I think 90 is possible for Anderson but 91 is too far this time round. I think he's a terrific player, and no doubt better than alot of the current 90rated players, but SM tends to go by statistics and although he's contributed alot this season he's not played a complete season yet. :)

Naní is in a similar situation, but he's played quite a few games for Portugal who have the likes of Ronaldo, Quaresma, Simao and Figo in the same position so should be a secure 90 if not 91.

As for Carrick; he's still starting regularly and playing in the CL which is always sign of a good player. Lack of England caps will probably prevent him from increasing but definately won't go down.

Re: EPL Rating Changes Thread

Just gonna give you a second Boro fan's view on the upcoming ratings.

As it stands' date=' Wheater and Huth both deserve to go up two, to 88.

Solid, making up for Woodgate departure.

However, Boateng, down about 3.[/quote']

Pretty much spot on with this. Boro's lack of goals this season has meant we've had to rely on our defence to win us our points. Everyone has been raving about Wheater this season, myself included (see signature), but Huth, as well as Luke Young, have been Boro's unsung heroes in defence since Woodgate's departure. Luke Young's rating is probably about right for now, but continuing with his consistent performances could see a future increase in rating, as well as a possible England call-up. Tom has probably predicted Huth's rating about right, 88 is a good shout for 'the Berlin Wall'. As for his defensive partner, 'the Redcar Rock' David Wheater could hit 89, and would if Boro were in a better league position, but will probably hit 88 as Tom again said, but a definite future 90+ and England player.

I think Boateng down 3 is slightly harsh, after a few recent impressive performances. 89 is definitely too high for an ageing rotated midfielder, but I think 87 is probably about right for now.

Yup he (Stewart Downing) looking good for an increase. He's staretd every single game fo boro this season. He's got 6 goals and has 4 assists to his name as well. Looking good for an increase to 90 imo.

Tbh i would love him to go to 91 but i don't think he will that rating.

Rise to 90 imo. :D

Downing has been our best supplier and finisher of goals this season' date=' which just shows how poor we have been in the forward department this season for a winger to be top scorer! Downing should hit 90 for playing regularly for club and country (although he's not the same player when in an England shirt), but I'm afraid any higher than a 90 is a long way off, as Boro would have to be in European places next year for this to be possible IMO. His form has been even better of late, along with that of the team. At the moment, I think there are 3 players worthy of a 90 in the Boro team (though not all will hit this rating), who are Stewart Downing, David Wheater and Tuncay Sanli (already rated 90).

Now that we are talking about boro i think that Wheater should get a rise to 88/89. He has been grea tthis season and has begun to play even better since Woodgate has left. Plus he has scored 3 goals this season. ;)

Grounds shold get a rise to 76/77 imo. He has started 4 games this season and played a total of 363 min (including the game against L'pool :D)

Aliadiere should get a rise to 88/89 imo as well. He got off to a slow start but has been playing really well off-late. He has scored 4 goals this season and has got 3 assists. Made 24 starts as well ;).

Gary O' Neil should get a rise to 88/89 as well. Started 23 gams and has got 4 assists. He has looked pretty good this season good

I've already mentioned Wheater earlier. IMO worthy of 90, would hit 89 if playing for top half club, but will hit 88 for sure.

Grounds has made a few appearances this season. IMO he should reach 80-82, to match Omozusi's rating change for Fulham earlier in the season. Although Grounds has just signed a 2-year contract, I can't see him making many more appearances for Boro ever to be honest. At the moment, he's behing both Pogatetz and Taylor in the pecking order for left-back, and I really don't think Grounds is, or will be, better than Taylor. I think he'll end up at a respectable Championship side in future.

I think your assessment of Aliadiere is a bit generous, but I can see where you're coming from. He'll definitely make 87 just from appearances, and could even make 88 for his recent goal spurt, but he just doesn't seem to be the same player against smaller sides. Against Arsenal he was dangerous and lively, but the next game against Derby he was very quiet for the whole 90 minutes. If he was more consistent, and played as many games next season as he has this season, I believe he could be our best striker. He was described as one of the best products of the French national academy, and ARsene Wenger always said he'd come good...you never know! Will definitely make 87/88, but if he has a good season next season I think he could be an outside shout for a 90.

I like O'Neil, but annoyingly he hasn't shown the same goalscoring prowess with the Boro as he did with Pompey. He's got good technique, good passing and crossing, and links up well down the right flank with Luke Young, but 89 is too generous for a non-international player playing decent for a mid-to-lower Premier League side. I think 88 would be fair.

Overall, Boro have been playing better recently, and the rating changes should reflect this. If you're going to buy a Boro player, make sure it's one of:

  • David Wheater (Future England player)
  • Robert Huth (If he keeps fit, will be a German regular)
  • Stewart Downing (Quality player, needs more confidence at international stage)
  • Jeremie Aliadiere (If he can be more consistent he'll be a top class striker)

Another player to look out for is Josh Walker. Currently on loan from Boro, and playing regularly, for Aberdeen - including UEFA Cup experience - Walker is 19 and has captained England from Under-15 to Under-19 age levels. He has been likened to Steven Gerrard, but don't expect too much of him straight away. When Boateng and Rochemback leave in the summer, he should start getting games for the Boro. He'll hit 83 for sure in the next rating changes - an increase of 4 from his current 79 rating, but could definitely be a future star! You heard him here first (I think :P )!!!!

Re: EPL Rating Changes Thread

Defoe may get +1 but no more then that. For Arsenal I think his will happen:

Rosicky -1 (sadly has been injured for a long time)

Eduardo (keep his rating)

Sagna +2 (Best RB in the league)

Lehman -1 (dont need to explain)

Almunia +1 (dont need to explain)

Senderos +1 (no way is he a 90 yet but filled in well enough for 89)

Gallas -1 (would help if he stopped crying and performed better. Berbatov and rooney have ran circles around him many times this season)

Clichy maybe +1 (his mistake against birmingham lets him down)

Walcott +1 (no need to explain)

Bendtner +1

Edebayor +2 (outstanding)

RVP (stay 92)

Eboue (stay 89)

Sagna to 93:eek: ...not even first choice RB for France has not even played a full season with Arsenal yet but you think he should be a 93 all the way from a 88 since he joined...

Adebayor to 93.... the guy is inconsistent but can be a good striker when on form which doesnt really last long... 91/92 for me.

I think someone forgot about Flamini :eek: he's sure to rise (92 me thinks) with 3177 minutes (dats 36 games ppl) under his belt he's a cert! I agree with most your ratings, but disagree with Sagna and Gallas they'll both stay the same or Sagna will go up one! Everything else seems to be in order with adebayor DEFINITELY going up but not too sure with him going 2 ratings up since he jumped from 89 to 91 and SM might be more conservative but hey we'll need to wait and see what happens with that one!

Re: EPL Rating Changes Thread

Hasnt Gallas been one of Arsenals better players? :confused: From what ive seen he has.

Yeah -1 for him is completely wrong... krucinho your telling me Gallas( starter for france and arsenal captain) should be the same as Sagna (Debut season hasnt really lit up emirates)....:confused:

Gallas has defo been one of the better Arsenal players seeing as he is not liked he still wants good things for the club.
