  1. But Alli and Mahrez have the same PA, so why is it acceptable for a 19 year old who has performed exceptionally this season (following 16 league goals last season, in a lower league but he was 18) but not for a 25 year old who has performed exceptionally this season but completely faded away come December last year and was very average when he first moved to the Championship? I follow Leicester a lot as I'm from Leicester and all my friends are Leicester fans and almost all of them think Leicester and their players are performing at their absolute maximum. Mahrez is on fire but is a good exa
  2. No need for comments like that is there? Just because I don't agree, what is the problem? Don't reply if you don't want to, but don't threaten not to, that is just childish. The whole point of these forums is to have a discussion, not one question one answer! In terms of those players I would suggest he has greater physical attributes (quicker, taller, stronger) which all eat ability points, then Rakitic, Cabaye, Carrick and Insigne (maybe not pace) I would say he then has better technical ability then Khedira, Bernat, Walcott and Martinez Finally he has better reading of the game and deci
  3. Right so he is good but not world class at most parts of the game, he is 19,19!! He can further improve all of those areas, he can be world class, but you seem to be saying that because he isn't he can never be? Let me ask you this then, what has Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain done that shows he can be better, at a higher PA? Or John Stones? What specifically have they shown in their game time that means they are going to be that much better? How in your view does a player obtain a high potential? Because having already achieved things surely falls under CA?
  4. Humm, not sure what you mean by involved, he has started 28 games and came on in 10, only Eric Dier has played more games this season for Spurs. I'm not saying he is at that level I'm saying he has the POTENTIAL in my opinion to get there, the level of a Bale, Benzema, Kroos, Mata in game. I was really looking for reasons I may have missed as to why he can't get there rather than explanations as to why isn't already a player at that level in game. So far I haven't seen or heard any logically argument why he can progress to that level in real life and in game, i.e. he lacks pace, doesn't get
  5. Ok Out of interest what is it about players that play in leagues like Portugal, Belgium and Argentina that would suggest they will be better? (I'm not asking this to be difficult genuine question) I look at players like Anderson, Nani, Hulk etc. for Portugal, Defour, Witsel etc. for Belgium and any number of players for South America (Saviola, Daimaio etc.) who look like potential world beaters early on but go on to never come close to the level they are assessed at in FM. Alli has performed consistently in the Premier League at 19 and he really has looked a fantastic prospect and I just do
  6. He's at his max PA, the in game editor confirms he is attributes are at that level as well, he plays well and would probably be good for a lot of teams but he is not as good as the players I mention. Generally the argument that he is an all round player is applied to players with high PA, i.e. because they have no obvious weakness they need more ability points whereas players like Vardy with very specific strengths can be lower ability but perform just as well because they have key attributes. For Alli I can see no obvious flaw in his game and would expect him to become a very, very good pla
  7. Sorry to be clear this is in 2021/22 so when he is max'd out, he just reach's a level that is squad player only for title winning side
  8. In real life or the game? I don't see him as a monster in game, he doesn't get in my Spurs team from 16.2.0, I have Sanches, Cubas, Samper, Eriksen and Tielemans all ahead of him and he is a versatile sub, he just doesn't excel at any role enough. He's good in game, and can perform in the right role, very well but I feel in real life he can play almost any role in CM and be better than 90% of his peers in those roles, he is best further forward as he does try things that if they don't come off and can put you in trouble (dribbles, passes intercepted etc.) but he just needs more experience to
  9. Would you agree with his status (PA wise) with other players in game, compared to the English players I mention and the likes Goretzka, Meyer, Martial, Depay etc. I would argue he is in that bracket, in real life, for European wide young players but not in game. I know people will argue it may all go wrong, look at Jenas etc. but everything about his personality implies barring injury it shouldn't and if we took that approach with all players everyone's CA and PA would be equal once they get into the first team
  10. Dele Alli, I'm keen to hear if it's just me being a Spurs fan but does anyone else feel his attributes and PA are not really representative of the player? I'm trying to not be too specific on CA/PA Specifically his PA compared to other players such as Luke Shaw, Wilshere, Oxlade-Chamberlain, Berahino, Hughes, Smalling, Welbeck, Henderson, Grealish, Ben Garratt, Butland & Barkley It seems he is well down the pecking order for prospects in England when I would say he is number 1 (or at least equal with Barkley, Stones & Sterling) In terms of specific attributes he doesn't have a singl
  11. Ok yeah done that, got one that turns 22 in 2 weeks so will see what happens then as he is unhappy!
  12. Hang on can you make it public now? Just went to try that again and can't see the option?!
  13. Yeah they just say no and the player is unhappy but doesn't change much really, they seem to sell when they reach 21/22 though which is odd, so managed to finally get Zivkovic out of Ajax for the paltry sum of £12.5m in 2018 when I spent years offering more, he's not hat great after all! I'm sure it'll get tweaked in update, that's all it needs we don't want to go back to the days where you could send scouts out on 'day of regens' and if you had full knowledge of major nations get 6/7 5* players for next to nothing!
  14. Yep but they were from Prem clubs not lower leagues, no issue with that but you can't get the next Rooney now, well unless the AI team has a mental breakdown, they just don't sell! And I'm not saying they always should of course, but they know what they have got (we're back to PA there!) and won't let go!
  15. Yeah that seems to have been addressed by making every club demand £80m for top youngsters, I've got league 2 clubs turning down £7.5m for a 17 year old, which is a bit much, I mean ultimately they would sell, think Bale, Ramsey etc The whole issue of moving abroad and staying at home is a bit loose, Lloris tells me he needs to go home due to his family etc (I've won everything with him there and am a top reputation club now) so I agree to sell him as I'm nice like that and where does he end up..... Real Madrid!
