You should see a doctor mate, it's amazing what they can do for you these days  

Some of the stuff you see on here is honestly absurd, this second time i've now seen you have a go at someone because of ratings lol, if people come on here and provide threads for the benefit of hund

With regards to @hoochy koochy's post, I agree that this has become a catch-all thread for deals, buy/sell/keep and new players etc. I can understand why people would post questions that are unrelated

I know I wasn't really in this conversation but Benzema is dreadful compared to Aub. He's at a good team, usually plays against clubs much weaker than his and even then has a sub-par goal and assist tally. He's a striker through and through and despite the great club he has behind him is rather sub-par.

 

Let's compare him to someone with an almost identical role in their team and playstyle. Suarez.

" Suarez scored in about 2 seasons with Barca nearly half as many (0.56 to be precise) as Benzema scored for Real in 7 seasons. That’s a gigantic difference. “ What about assists ? ”, you may ask. Well, it’s almost identical. In about 2 seasons of UCL and La Liga, Suarez made nearly half as many (0.57 to be precise) as Benzema made with Real in 7 seasons in the same competitions. "

 

THIS is what Benzema should be doing with the team he has. And it's very arguable that Madrid have a better team than Barca. And before you argue that Benzema isn't their main goal-scorer, well neither is Suarez at Barcelona.

 

To return to my original point, Aubameyang has nowhere near the same level of support that Benzema has around him. If you put Aub (who is already outperforming Benzema in a near-identical league) in an even BETTER team. Then it stands to reason he'll only do better.

SM have missed a huge number of risers so far. Knowing how negatively they think about scouters having too much of an advantage I'm sure it's on purpose. This SM policy should be very evident to everybody by the end of the Big 5 review.

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind, The answer is blowin' in the wind.

The returns on scouting now seem to hit new lows. You can buy a riser who you have researched & found should definitely rise - GREAT!

Perhaps not so great, SM are missing out a very large slice of these profitmakers & NOT reviewing them at all. My premise is that SM do this purposefully & deliberately to reduce profit margins due to the scouts. It is a trend I've seen grow & grow over many years. Wages have been manipulated higher & player values lowered gradually.

I find it hard to understand why we have not had many complaints from forumers so far this review (that I've seen anyway). Perhaps the huge majority of forumers now are relatively new & are not noticing this trend while most of the "Old-Timers" have left during this trend. Where have all the "Old time Scouters" gone I can hear in the back of my head as I write this, (It's being sung to the Dylan song "Blowing in the Wind".

As well as ommissions SM use another stategy (I hope I can remember this example entirely correctly). Take Marcos Lllorente now looking good for at least a +1. On 12 january this year his value increased to 5m when he went from 78 to 85. He then had a birthday which should have reduced his value, it didn't. Now in May his value has risen to 6m, which is the value of many players of the same age at 86. So you research, spending great amounts of time on scouting & this player goes up say +1 but you are likely to get nothing for it except the kindness of you paying SM 20turns worth of wages...... Now I realise why all the "old-time scouters" left they must have seen which way "the wind blows" before I did :confused::(

Yes, and how many years can soccer manager exist
Before it's washed to the sea?

Yes, and how many years can a player exist
Before he's allowed to run free?

Yes, and how many times can a manager turn his head
And pretend that he just doesn't see
?

The answer, my friend, is blowin' in the wind
The answer is blowin' in the wind.......

I would have thought that this is done to discourage player hoarding. SM have always been fairly proactive in their attempts to curb hoarding by managers. The logic being that you cannot sustain large, well rated team without incurring huge losses. Thankfully I had built a large, young, highly rated squad early enough. So now I am happy to go into the red...because there is no real penalty for this. I can't buy new players, but I don't need them, I am still winning trophies. Build your house when the sun is shining, but hey it takes a lot to laugh, it takes a train to cry.

Is it 60s night? Bill Foulks to get a +1 in the next review? What does everyone think of Blackpool youngster Alan Ball? Can he establish himself in the first team and get in the national team in a few years? Worth hanging on to?

I can see the Charlton Brothers doing well. Midfielder Bobby needs to take a few tips tho from his brother Jack on how to score goals with his head. I think Bobby dosn't like to mess up his hair-do, so go for Jack :)

Going to be very interesting to see Lemar's value after he rises shortly. Why? Because Sule was 16m b4 his rise & 14m after. Lemar is 24m & is on the same rating as Sule at the moment. Both are 21yo & rated 89 so ..... 24m & 14m is a big difference. More of SM's "engineering" the rating reviews??? Will Sule's value rocket when he actually joins Bayern or Lemar go up in rating & down in value? Interesting .... SM what will you do???

To add to this, Lemar was valued at 16mil a couple of weeks ago and has recently gained another 8mil value for nothing... 

Similar with Vinicius junior, a few days ago was worth 360k? Now worth 1.2mil.

Probably cause of the hype caused by intense transfer speculation.

On another note: Junior just signed a new contract and isn't going anywhere. For now.
