Is it important to actually watch the replay soccer games of your teams? Sometimes i do like to watch them, but is anything gained from it, or is there something I should be looking for?

I don't think you gain anything by it, but I almost always do watch. One thing that's very annoying is that it misses goals. You think you've got a hard-earned 2-2 draw but actually you've lost 3-2, and the goal you didn't get to see wasn't even the last goal scored. This stopped happening to me a few weeks ago, and I thought that they'd solved the bug, but I've recently had it happen several times.


Edit: it isn't always 2-2 and 3-2, obviously. These ghost goals happen all over the place.

Please advice me the best pick from these 4 categories.

1. kaio jorge / silva brenner / troy parrot

2. fabio Vieira / naci unuvar / yusuf demir / angel gomez / noni madueke

3. Michael cuisance / Florentino luis / gustavo assuncao / fausto vera / nicolo rovella / tomas esteves 

4. Roger ibanez / noah katterbach / nehuen perez / josko gvardiol / ethan ampadu / odilon kossounou.


Also I can sign 2 from these list. Whom should I pick? The ones in bold. 

Although I beleive there will be a difference in options in other responses to your Q.

The players I have chosen = I know and read more positive things about them during this season, they have a good performance average so far as well.

Sometimes i do like to watch them, but is anything gained from it, or is there something I should be looking for? You will get an idea of who your best performing player's for your team are. And you'll get an idea if you are allocating the correct player to take your set plays - based on how well they are taking them.  🙂

Fabinho for Gosen, kabak & Marin Pongračić. Will get much needed depth. Will this be a decent deal? I have Fabinho 

Fabinho for me. You can get better depth than these three.

Pau Lopez

Musso less, the other three have a good chance

I have him too. Sell when rise is the plan.

I do not understand the updates of the Mexican league. They are not taking into account the results of the "opening" tournament where Leon was the champion and Unam second. Alan mozo is in the ideal 11 of the tournament and they raise it only +1 to 83. ???

Not surprised

I don't have any 90 players. My strikers are two 85's.

Giroud for my Luca Netz? Or should I hold out?

Since he’s just scored against Lazio...

What do you think Musiala’s ceiling is and how quickly will he get there? Extra bumps in the next couple of reviews too?

Sky is the ceiling! Should get 90 by end of next season if he keeps this up.

On 2/23/2021 at 8:51 PM, Cdog said:

Sterling or Latauro Martinez 

who has the higher rating potential



Martinez, but Sterling is already 94 so... both peak at 94 for me with a shot at 95

On 2/23/2021 at 10:17 PM, RossieJ said:

Who would you go for?

Arthur or Alli and Tonali


Duo for depth

If Atl Madrid win the league, would Joao Felix rise to 92? I sold him some time ago because he wasn't performing how I expected irl, and Atl Madrid didn't seem like a good fit. Frustrating choosing between him, Sancho, and Havertz.


Also you think Dybala will keep his 93?

It is possible, I think I said that one needed patience with him

A drop is very much possible

On 2/24/2021 at 4:15 AM, RieceM96 said:

I don't get it. Soccer Manager needs update. I have never really understood how MESSI is BETTER THAN RONALDO. RONALDO is BETTER than MESSI. At the moment, SM says that MESSI is better than LEWANDOWSKI. now let's have a looky at these stats, shall we?








In my opinion, it would make quite the sense that LEWANDOWSKI is a 98 or 99, MESSI is a 96 or 97, and RONALDO is a 97 or 98. Is it just me?


They are all fine as is

On 2/24/2021 at 9:23 PM, Id rather be in SW19 said:

bailey or Draxler? AM position so both kind of fit there. Will Draxler leave PSG and get better? Will Leon Bailey get +1 unless he leaves current team?


Draxler should drop but keeps escaping

On 2/25/2021 at 12:28 PM, gAv Gav said:

Who should I buy from these players that are level 5 concerns at the same club:

Trent Alexander-Arnold, Matthijs De Ligt, Kimpembe, Haaland.

There are two teams bidding for Haaland, the others no one has bid.

Should I still try for Haaland or go for one of the defenders? Here's my squad:


Loaned out:


Haaland or TAA

Immobile and Leao for my Fabinho?

Midfield I have D.silva, Witsel, Ceballos, Sensi, Kampl, Derimbay

Attack I have Messi, Cavani, Jovic, A.Silva, Moura and Sancho

With this context I prefer Fabinho given your ratings

I would sell once he gets a rise, Turkey isn’t reviewed very often so you could be waiting another 6+ months until he rises again

Not particularly but I watch them, it’s a bit redundant in all honesty because you can’t effect the game in anyway shape or form, just hope to have set your team up to win.

The values on transfermarkt jump all over the place too. In my opinion it's right that the values of players should behave like this, and up to us to try to decide in time whether a player is overvalued or not. I got badly stung with Brandon Williams recently, when I felt that £6M was generous and wanted to sell, but didn't do so until my club got knocked out of the knockout competitions. When I finally listed him, the offer that came in was surprisingly low, and it turned out that SM had devalued him by £2M, just after I put him on the list. It's frustrating, but it's part of the game and should be so, in my opinion. I doubt that there's a hard and fast formula they use though.

I agree.  Whether it by design or not, it is what it is and a bit of random is fine by me.  You win some and you lose some.

Schalke 04 put out a very youth team in their 0-0 draw with Mainz earlier this evening, here are just some of the names involved:

Can Bozdogan (19) SM rating/value - 77/800k

Kerim Calhanoglu (18) SM rating/value - 73/400k

Matthew Hoppe (19) SM rating/value - 75/600k

Very exciting for fans of youngster getting a chance even if it is for a sinking ship in Schalke 04.

Other youngsters who featured are Malick Thiaw (19) 77/800k and Luca Schuler (21) 67/220k

No formula but it is likely SM see something good on another website (Transfermkt or Whose Scored or just them talking amongst themselves or seeing something on Forum even) which makes them reduce the profit margin on a likely riser. They like to even up the "playing field" for "managers in the know" and the rest.

I'm in the non-competitive lower divisions of a gameworld with a reasonably competitive top division - they fight it out over anyone 90+ but seem to have forgotten all about young players. Which is fun for me.

I've amassed quite the team of young talent, but I was wondering who (if anyone) might be high 80s or 90s in about 18 months (when I should be hitting that division). Also, is there anyone whose ceiling isn't that high, or a better option of similar current ranking?





Nuno Mendes

Great to see NERES on the score sheet yesterday. In my opinion, he has been like Ajax's version of DEMBELE for a long time. I really hope this is the start of a vein of form.

I know that the Winter review has only just finished, but I am already greedily looking forward to Rahul's predictions for the Summer review. Rahul, do you know roughly when you will be giving your initial predictions on the front page?

There are a few players I am particularly interested in knowing tentative predictions for: PEDRI, NETO and DALOT. All have risen recently, but all are getting plenty of game time with top teams.

I will probably do initial predictions for the big teams in late March/early April. 

Pedri - 88

Neto - 88

Dalot - stay/86

Mount - I'm 50/50 on keeping him

Pedri - I'll keep him & put out on loan

Wirtz - I'll keep him & put out on loan

Well I've just checked in on this and saw, I guess, people having a go 🗣 with AnthonyKegher. All I can say is I do not know what to think of it.

But in Soccer Manager, I've been doing some connect leagues. I did 2 today after moving to league 9, but it seems that I can only do it with the team that I did 10 with. Is that so? If you move up the leagues, you can only do it with the team that moved up, not with all your teams? That doesn't really make sense to me.

SWIKI REPORT (06/03/21)

5 pages today with Slovakia, Chile and more MLS, over the past 2 days there’s been nearly 20 edits for 4 teams in America, looking really in depth so far.

Slovakia 🇸🇰 

Slovan Bratislava - 7
FK DAC 1904 - 3
FK Senica - 10

Martin Kostal one of them?

Division 4 side here.

Is he due a rise? Considering he only has 400 mins and no goals or assists ? 

I have Wirtz,Reyna, Kadewere, Koita,Sima,Cho , Bamford, Che Adams ( will sell) 

Out on loan I have Moukoko,Madueke, Musiala and Danilo (Ajax)

If you need the cash... sure

Hi mates, how are you? I have been offered 5, maybe even 6 players out of these, in exchange of my Abdallah Sima and Isaac Lihadji. I am not fully convinced, but what would you do? 🤔

Bilal Benkhedim, Matchoi Djalo, Álex Collado, Daishawn Redan, Claudio Gomes, Evert Linthorst, Franco Orozco, Sam Lammers

Not sure mate, not sure I'm sold on any of these guys

Neither tbh

Ounas is younger, so I'd take him if at all

Is it a good idea to sell Romagnoli? Which young central defender would you recommend?

It can be either +90 or -90, the important thing is that he has a good current performance and a promising future.

I'd wait and see, get Upamecano though

Is Marquinhos gonna keep his DM position? He has had it for a while, right? Had a brilliant idea I could move him to midfield and buy back Upamecano (sold him to an external club to get Dias + money) and bring Upa back to my defense. I'd be selling Kroos in place of Marquinhos.

If SM randomly takes his DM position off later I'll just have to smile through the pain.

He'll keep it, he has actually played at DM a fair bit

Thanks to everyone who took the time to answer my questions on possible player exchanges these days, I wanna let you know that not even a single one of them turned into reality! hahaha (but it was not for lack of effort) :D

So, I try it again. I have been offered Mauro Junior for my Federico Ricca (in a GW capped at 86). Any opinion? Cheers :)


On 3/1/2021 at 11:02 AM, Toby S said:

Been waiting for a Henderson +1 forever but with his injury I'm now doubting it'll ever happen. Think I'm going to sell Hendo and purchase Barella who's doing well in a solid Inter side, fully expect him to get a +1 end of the season review. Is anyone else thinking the same?? 

Also with AC Milan no longer top I'm worrying whether Romagnoli will get a +1. 91/92 rated CB's are scarce in my league and I was hoping this would be my chance to get a nice 91 rated into 92 end of the season review :( I don't watch much Serie A sadly, @Milanista1 do you have any advice? :D  

I doubt he will get 93 now. Missed his chance. I'd get Barella. 

Romagnoli getting 92, I'm not too sure atm. Milan need to finish the season well.

On 3/1/2021 at 1:04 PM, Mike0007 said:

Giving Son away for getting Muller plus Vinicius/Kulusevski?

Go or no go? Reckon Muller can get 95 if he keeps up the performance and Bayern will the league?

Muller + Kulusevski

Son won't get 95

Muller 95, I doubt

Some questions…


1.      Romelu Lukaku or Roberto Firmino ?


2.      If you have Dayot Upamecano, Mathijs De Ligt, Wesley Fofana, Jules Koundé, Alessandro Bastoni and David Alaba plus some youngsters coming through as Ronald Araujo, Odilon Kossounou, Marash Kumbulla, Roger Ibanez, Takehiro Tomiyasu, Edmond Tapsoba and Jhon Lucumi is it worth keeping Lukas Klostermann and Gabriel Magalhaes ?

I'm playing 3-4-2-1..


I'd sell those two given your depth. Though Klostermann is a useful fullback, maybe keep him and sell Tomiyasu?

On 3/1/2021 at 7:55 PM, Nameless said:

Not at all. If they are the same person (which is very likely) we all deserve to know. Out of courtesy people reply to "their" questions. The person possibly also replies to himself/herself. There are few moderators and devs who can possibly take some action. 

I had my suspicion when he asked Rahul to add him and gave another email add. Might have double accounts in SM as well. 

If not, then I will have to learn to ignore him and skip his 100 useless comments a day.

I agree.

Have the following players, looking to sell some to add up to around 50m. Also have some loaned out that I'm going to sell. Of the list below, who should I sell?

And just to let you know, this is one of the gameworlds of which I am the only manager in and had plenty of money to spend. That is why I have all these good senior players and highly-rated young players.

Thanks! 😀

If you are the only manager, does it matter who you sell? You can buy anybody, sell anybody.

Muller + Vinicius

Vinicius or Rodrygo better in terms of potential?

I really don't know

On 3/2/2021 at 6:55 AM, Nameless said:

(1) Thoughts on Immobile? 

He is at that stage where his value is only going to go down but seems will retain his 93 for some time. And it's safe to assume he will not do a Muller or Lewandowski.

So what would you do - 

(i) Keep him since his rating is safe and take the hit on his value every year or review

(ii) Trade him for say a younger 90/91/92 rated players regardless how promising those players are (cash is of no value)

(iii) You have other opinion(s). 

(2) Sane or Werner?


A safe 93

I'd trade for a younger 91/92

Hi, interesting offer received for my Strakosha. Henderson and £10m cash and Choudry of Leicester.

I have just got Bono in as Straks isnt Number 1 choice any more and Sevilla doing ok. Hendo not getting much game time and is showing concerns at his current club as he is behind Burki at his current gameworld team.

Hendos age and potential are great, but I would have to play him as he is young and gets concerned!

Worth doing?

Henderson will get gametime eventually, you just have to wait and see how it develops. Get him now, concerns shouldn't kick in by start of next season where his long term future at United will become more apparent. Another situation like this season is highly unlikely.

There’s been a lot of talk on social media today about Albert Braut Tjaland (17) who’s the cousin of Erling Braut Haaland and like Haaland seems ridiculously deadly in front of goal.

In the youth ranks at Bryne FK he scored an incredible 64 goals in 37 games and like his cousin has joined Molde to continue his development. Remember the name!!


His name is Tjaaland in SM FYI!

SM rating - 65

Value - 240k

Crazy if he ends up even half as good as Haaland

Hey Guys,

Just has confirmation that I signed Kingsley Coman. 

I have Olmo 90 / Aour 90 / Kulusevski 88 / Cuhna 88 / Camavinga 88 who are subs for this position. I dont think ill be able to keep them all without some of them becoming unhappy so wanted opinions on who you would ship off ? The game wont let me loan out 88 rated players :( and I can use the money onto sorting another position i guess.

Who would u ditch or would you just hang onto them all for now, im unsure if any are due rises?

I'd keep all, maybe sell Cunha if you have to
