  1. You're not getting this. If a researcher determines that player X has certain attribute values, rightly or wrongly in your opinion, then counter his assessment with something tangible to argue your case. Otherwise its just your opinion against his. Not rocket science. Just the first post in the thread to understand how to engage in this thread please.
  2. 1. They are not stats (statistics) which are factual pieces of data 2. They are attributes that the Spurs researcher has determined to be accurate at the time of the previous datalock 3. Attributes are all about opinion and you have not backed any of your opinions up with reasoning 4. You have not read the first post in the thread that details how to put your difference of opinion across in a constructive way
  3. Thanks for this. Do you have reference for this please
  4. I don’t know, I’ll check it out but I asked for him to be added to the Liverpool DB.
  5. Aaah, it'll be the 2 for 1 drinks on student night he'll be going to
  6. You're right I had a trumpet score from a indirect free kick and my Inside Trombone couldn't hit a cow's backside with a banjo
  7. Organise a victory parade in an open top bus......there's an idea for a new feature in FM21
  8. I find the same with Defensive / Ball Winning Midfielders too. They seem to be playing ok when you watch the game but there match ratings are around 6.6/6.7. Not the sexiest role, they very rarely score or assist I suppose though.
  9. I always manage Íþróttabandalag Akraness (IA) in Iceland. The challenge being - a country I know nothing about, a team I'd never heard of, with players I don't know from Adam and a language I can't fathom. And I'm now at the point that I've done the whole Google street view of the town, know the club / players inside out, converse with the club / players / fans (a few anyway) on Twitter and watch the live recordings of their games whenever possible on IATV.
  10. You've got to do the full 90 on 3D. Its as nerve wrecking as watching your own team in the real CL and I've done both.
  11. Speaking as the Liverpool researcher... Gripper is not a moderator per se, he's Head EFL Researcher The opening post clearly states a 3 point plan when posting in this forum which includes evidence/proof if something is wrong. The poster didn't do this and his opinion has no validation, doesn't follow the 'rules of engagement' here, hence the response. If he had followed the original instructions and posted WHY he thought Lallana and Wijnaldum were on par (and presuming he didn't have the Editor), then I would have corrected him with an explanation. No foul language was ever indicated.
  12. You've hit the nail on the head 'there simply is no evidence to pick one over the other' the truth is both are JK's Assistant Managers that have different qualities and skill sets to their role. I have given a number of reasons of why I went for Krawietz including in my last post. He has the longer track record in that role which is a indisputable fact that differentiates between the two. You keep using the phrase 'assistant managery' without definition and stating 'you know you're in the majority who believe it should be PL' without foundation. That is your opinion but there's no substance to debate with. For instance, Lijnders has been lauded for his media handling and Krawietz keeps away from that responsibility - so that has substance behind it and therefore is hard to dispute and we are therefore both in agreement. When you look at the responsibilities of an Assistant Manager in the game (I'm not at home so don't have a complete list of role) - Tactics, Team Feedback, Opposition Instructions, Data - Krawietz edges it for me. Lijnders edges its with Man Management, Training, Media, Player Development. Its a hard call. I'll say it again I am on the fence, so if there was something more tangible for me to consider than great and maybe it does very much depend on how you view/use an Assistant Manager in the game.
