Adelaide United/A-League

Recommended Posts

Hey guys,

I know Adelaide United are hardly a top tier team, and their players aren't the most important going around, but it would be great as a supporter if, when I play as them, I could have the full squad of players.

The following players are missing:


Bruce Kamau (M/AM/F®), ~74-76 (A-League games)

Mark Ochieng (D/DM/M/AM(L)) ~72-74 (FFA Cup game)

Uncapped (unsure whether these players get created prior to capping)

John Hall (GK), ~72-74 (sits on bench regularly)

Ben Warland (D(LC)) ~70-72 (part of senior squad)

Dylan Smith (M©), ~70-72 (part of senior squad)

Here is a handy link to the squad page, which can provide good quality photos (a few players are missing theirs in the database)

The following players need slight adjustments to their positions:

Sergio Cirio- listed as a AM/F(L), but has also played F© a few times this season.

Craig Goodwin- listed as a D/DM/M(L), but has also played AM(L) a few times this season.

The following players, I feel, need a slight adjustment to their ratings:

Nathan Konstandopolous- recently added to the database as a 70, but has played 2 first team games, and for that alone you don't find worse than 75 playing in the A-League. 73-75 would be closer to the mark.

Craig Goodwin- no worse than the majority of 79 players (Osama Malik, Nigel Boogard, Fabio Fererria). 79 would feel fair.

Jose Cassio- rated 82, and was certainly that good 2-3 years ago. Been injured for almost all of those 2-3 season, and would be 79-80 territory now.

Awer Mabil- the kid is better than 77. Will almost certainly play for Australia in the next 2 years, and has improved massively in the last year. 79-80 would be much more accurate IMO.

Bruce Djite- very interesting here. He has been playing excellently the first few weeks of the season, after a spell of no injury. Unfortunately, injured pretty much every other week. However, when he is fit, he looks more of an 82-83 (yes, top 2 player in the squad).

Marcelo Carrusca- Aside from his shocking miss last weekend, he is one of the best players in the league, let alone the side. The best players in the league are 86, and he deserves to be 84-85. If he wasn't 31, I imagine he would be a viable option for English Championship teams, or even the bottom three of the EPL.

As I said, I know many people just turn their nose up at the A-League, but it's a competition, it costs me $25 to reserve a team in a GC, just the same as any other league, and deserves the same attention. Overall, I think all players in the A-League, and all Australian players, are under-rated by 1-2 points. Case en point is Mile Jedinak, he is 88-89 material, when you look at some of the other players with that tag, and Tim Cahill is still in the same bracket too, just look at his entire world-cup contribution.
