Re: Risers from the "Big 5" Second Divisions

Any transfers from January that means they will now be reviewed?

Nothing particularly spectacular to be honest. One to bear in mind is that Ryan Bennett of Peterborough has joined Norwich. Should still be good for a decent rise 77 - 80/81, but may have to wait a little longer for it.

Kadeem Harris RM/CM 18 70 (Wycombe > Cardiff)

has 17 Apps for Wycombe in League 1. Should be good for a decent rise 70 - 75/76.

Kwesi Appiah CF 21 65 (Margate > Crystal Palace)

scored plenty in non-league. May or may not count for anything.

Ben Marshall W/F 20 78 (Stoke > Leicester)

Joined Leicester on the back of good loan spells in League 1 (22Apps 5 Goals for Sheffield Wednesday). Was highly rated at Stoke who didn't want to let him go. May get a small rise now 78 - 79/80.

Lukas Jutkiewicz CF 22 83 (Coventry > Middlesbrough)

Had 25 Apps and 9 Goals for lowly Coventry, maybe deserving +1 for that, might be more likely now he's joined Middlesbrough.

Billy Sharp CF 26 83 (Doncaster > Southampton)

Like Jutkiewicz, move from relegation strugglers to promotion chasers might help him get a deserved +1. 21 Apps 10 Goals for Doncaster.

Re: Risers from the "Big 5" Second Divisions

Any rise for Vaz Te and Gulacsi?

Vaz Te (like Sharp and Jutkiewicz) has definitely done his chance of a rise no harm by moving to a higher placed club. Played a lot for Barnsley, not sure how much he'll start for West Ham - after all Big Sam bought him for Bolton and never used him that much. Think he'll probably hit 81/82 - but personally don't think he's a great investment long term.

Gulacsi has played a bit for Hull (15 appearances) but haven't seen much of him and pretty sure he's returned to Liverpool with an injury (?). I don't think he's underrated on 80, but he might get a small rise.

Re: Risers from the "Big 5" Second Divisions

Great work! Thanks for that.

@Lundekvam5

I think you should add in Pescara Ciro Immobile (CF' date=' 22 Apps, 17 goals)

One question - No rise for Mattia Perin from Padova? (GK, 12 Apps)[/quote']

Both are on loan from Genoa and had their ratings reviewed in December. Don't know if SM will review again if Serie B reviewed again soon.

Perin at most to get a small rise. Would be shocked if he got any more than 82. Don't watch Serie B so can't help on the lad's ability but the stats don't merit a rise.

Immobile has been banging them in but just got a +4 to 82. If he continues his form there is no reason why he can't hit 84/85 by the end of the season, but would not expect a (significant) rise from him now. Even if he is averaging 1.5 goals per game since he's been reviewed... Would certainly hang on to him if I had him though..

Reviewing the risers

Now that the Championship review is imminent thought I'd condense the stuff above into a handy guide..

Category A

make room in your squad for these guys - good rise plus plenty of potential to play at a higher level

A Lallana AM/F Southampton 23 80 (84)

R Lambert CF Southampton 30 80 (84)

A Clayton CM Leeds United 23 77 (82)

L Dunk CB Brighton 20 75 (82)

L Bridcutt CM Brighton 22 75 (82)

J Butterfield CM Barnsley 21 78 (82)

N Redmond W Birmingham 17 75 (80)

Category B

due a good rise but probably Championship quality at best

D Hammond CM/DM Southampton 28 78 (82)

*J Bennett LB/LM Middlesbrough 21 80 (83)

M Bates D/DM Middlesbrough 25 80 (83)

H Robson Kanu W/AM Reading 22 78 (82)

A Le Fondre CF Reading 25 75 (80)

J Dudgeon LB Hull 21 75 (80)

*T Lees RB/CB Leeds United 20 74 (82)

J Hendrick RM/CM Derby 20 75 (80)

L Tomlin F Peterborough 23 69 (78)

J Pearce CB Portsmouth 24 74 (80)

A Cresswell LB Ipswich 21 74 (80)

Category C

young talents who will get a small rise now, but have potential to go that little bit further...

J Ralls CM Cardiff 18 75 (78)

W Zaha F/W Crystal Palace 19 80 (82)

J Williams CM Crystal Palace 18 75 (77)

J Caskey AM/W Brighton 17 75 (77)

Category D

buy. then sell.

F Kiss CM/RM Cardiff 21 74 (80)

M Bartley DM/CB Burnley 24 72 (79)

P Jones GK Peterborough 25 74 (79)

P Taylor F Peterborough 24 75 (80)

E Sinclair F Peterborough 24 75 (80)

M Done CM/LM Barnsley 23 72 (78)

Re: Risers from the "Big 5" Second Divisions

Great job! I have a question which is slightly off topic.

Anyone know when/if the lower leagues will be reviewed? Such as Leagues 1 & 2 in England? I've done some scouting but I need to know if it is worth buying them now?

Cheers.

They were reviewed around August/September time so I would say not until then. Everyone thought the championship would come soon after them but it is only being done now. So maybe they were just getting the players a bit more up to the level and then will leave them for a long time. Who knows. Personally I wouldn't buy any unless they will move to bigger clubs.

Oh okay, cheers :) Hopefully Stevenage would have been promoted again by then!

Re: Risers from the "Big 5" Second Divisions

Seeing as bottom 6 were updated yesterday would expect to see PETERBOROUGH, WATFORD, IPSWICH, DERBY, BARNSLEY and LEICESTER done tonight.

Big rises for Cresswell, Tomlin, P Taylor, P Jones, R Bennett, Peltier, Hendrick but if you want to buy one player with a good rise now and a very bright future would recommend BUTTERFIELD of Barnsley. Should get a decent +4 and will almost certainly be snapped up in the summer by one of the bigger boys - is out for the rest of the season with ligament damage so may take a while to rise again..

Re: Risers from the "Big 5" Second Divisions

see above for Sinclair.

Morrison won't rise - his only contribution since joining West Ham is to face a disciplinary hearing for homophobic comments on twitter.

well Morrison and Sinclair both got a +3.

Sinclair has 25 Apps and 7 goals for Peterborough this season.

Morrison has played 2 sub appearances in the Carling Cup.

Ratings based solely on hype.

See also Zaha getting 84. He's a good player with a great future, but though this may sound biased, no championship manager would pick him ahead of Lambert. Both have 30 appearances. Zaha has 4 goals - Lambert has 19.

Re: Risers from the "Big 5" Second Divisions

I don't know where to ask' date='but this thread is probably the best place.

Any thought on Jordan Rhodes? Is he worth buying and keeping?

Thanks in advance. :)[/quote']

He won't rise now as the League 1 cap is 80 and also League 1 was last reviewed in August and it won't be again for another 1 and a half, if Huddersfield get promoted and he continues his form he will rise this time next year. He won't move clubs, if he does, until summer and whether he stays with Huddersfield, joins a Championship side or a Premier League side, he won't be reviewed 'til just before Christmas. Basically if you want to buy for a rise, hang on for now, but in competitive setups it wouldn't be the worst idea to buy him. As I said though, he needs to play at a higher level to rise as he's already capped in League 1:)

No,it is not very competitive setup. And I'm tight on budget too. So I'll keep my eye on him instead of snap him up. Thanks for your advice mate.

Cheers. :)
