  1. At Soccerway it's even different, with groups A and B of 13 teams each. Also at https://www.ftf.org.tn/ it's so. Anyway, it looks a tweak would be welcome, whenever possible.
  2. Thanks, will be included in the future updates.
  3. Confirmed, thanks. Will be included in the future updates.
  4. Thanks for spotting, corrected
  5. Just for this - Al-Mutawa is 38 yo. He has debuted in the Kuwaiti league in 2002. At Transfermarkt he has data only of 34 league, cup, Asian cups and NT matches. His stats at Wikipedia give him over 600 matches played in total, with over 340 goals. I'm pretty sure, among these 340 goals there is much more penalties, than only 7 And as for Transfermarkt, it recently became quite a reliable source for many leagues - I don't oppose it. But for the more obscure countries, and older players, who've started more than 10, or even 5 years ago, well... you know - there's huge a lot to be added (if even possible to be found in some local archives), and TM is not to be believed blindly (even from the current seasons, let's take my Armenia for example - TM covers its 2nd level, and gives the number of matches played and goals scored for the players. But I still have to check every one of them in details, because, unfortunately, for quite a lot of them, for many matches in the season it's written "the match lineup is not yet available". And if even one match report is missing, I can't add the numbers to the DB, as I'm not sure, if these are correct. The more if, let's say, missing is half a season...). So for Bader, for example, this should be taken into consideration before reducing his attribute value Anyway, Your suggestion is really interesting and valuable, definitely worth discussing Thanks!
  6. Is this really so? I would be not so sure, if it is possible to make a generalization like this at all. A penalty is a penalty, and the abilities of other 20 people on the field, not mentioning the other teams, mean nothing at this one moment. Only the striker against the keeper. Indeed it is. Yes, it would be. Maybe it might be an improvement indeed, even if in some cases it might not work ideally. I didn't say it's not worth discussing. Indeed. Maybe the researcher has seen him at the trainings and knows his ability? Not set in the DB, value randomized during the game start. Well, are You really sure, that the statistics you have ARE complete? And that someone rating him, maybe, has seen him more in the Kuwaiti league, or at least has better stats from there? Attribute not set in the DB, random value. It is set. 97% success seems acceptable for 19 value then. It's set. You have data from the 1st tier of France and Switzerland, but the player is now in the amateur level and will retire soon. So his abilities might have deteriorated a bit. As for Chicharito and Lacazette I won't be guessing, why they are rated like that. Maybe they are incoherent/not objective, but it's also possible, that the researchers responsible for their teams know them better and see something, which is not visible from the pure stats, and what we cannot rate, not seeing them regularly live at the stadium/training field. Anyway, I believe, that indeed, the stats should be a good hint to determine the value. But we also take into consideration, that they might be at least partially incomplete and/or outdated, and it's the researcher role to know, if the formula should be adjusted later, or not.
  7. The idea itself is interesting, but you might have forgotten the goalkeeper factor. It's something different to shoot a penalty against Yashin, Buffon or other penalty-killer, or against some weak keeper, who allows all the shoots to make the net. Of course, I know, that it would be extremely difficult to implement that, but this might make a noticeable difference for at least some players.
  8. Thank you, noted and will be fixed in the future update.
  9. And Dato Todua too. All 3 solved.
  10. Thanks for spotting, solved now.
  11. Confirmed. Somehow a mistake appeared some 3 years ago and hasn't been spotted and corrected till now. I apologize for that and correct all of mine players having that issue. Done in submission #223679 - if possible to be included in the nearest update, would be great. I was unable to fix: 38059176 - Hungarian DB 2000203275 - French (WOM) DB 2000128734 - Tunisian DB possibly also nine person in Brazilian DB with a kit name starting with @ or 0.
  12. Too young. Only players born before 1 September 2006 are allowed in FM 23.
  13. Alex Jr. is also already transferred correctly. I know, that now Transfermarkt shows his move date as February 1st, but I'm quite sure, that when it was reported, it was on February 24th, as he has such date entered. As for Shukura - we have at the moment 6 winter signings of that club, maybe some are indeed missing. That might also be the cause, that sometimes Transfermarkt reports the transfer with a big delay, and as I'm trying to update them on weekly (or directly before the deadline - daily) basis, it might happen, that, if some transfer is added at TM, let's say, on mid-February, with date January 1st, it might remain unnoticed before the season starts fully, although I'm trying to track all of them and add them immediately after discovering. Just please have in mind, that for all ex-USSR (8 countries, ca 150-200 teams, possibly hundreds of transfers) I'm almost alone to track and do it. If I omit something, I'm as angry because of that, as You are, because I'm striving to provide the best possible data, without omissions. Please check again after the Chinese transfer window update is out, I think most of the omissions you see now will be corrected - as I was entering the recent transfers to the very moment of yesterday
  14. I guess these transfers were reported too late to be included in the first winter update (IIRC the deadline for it was mid-February), although most (or almost all) of them are already entered to the DB and should be visible in the next update. This is the case with Kharaishvili and Lasha Kvaratskhelia. It is possible, though, that some were omitted by mistake, as it is with Patsatsia's cause, for this I do apologize. For the future, I'd be grateful, if You'd like to help reporting the transfers in Georgia, it's always better to have another pair of eyes tracking them.
  15. Thanks for spotting! But player 2000219022 is not possible to be found in the DB, only the first one is present. Is there any chance it's a regen?
  16. My guess - NOT AN OFFICIAL STATEMENT! - is, that if these were removed, the game might get banned from sale in China PR...
  17. Thanks for spotting. Looks like a duplicate indeed.
  18. This name is written Արթուր, with թ letter, meaning an aspirated t, as opposite to non-aspirated տ. We might review the transcription of Armenian names in the future, but Transfermarkt won't be a source for that. Noted, thanks!
  19. That's a difficult question. On the one side - we remember both Bale and Daniel Alves as great players from the past. World class players, I'd say. Ali has never been, and that's true. On the other side - Daniel Alves is now 39, moved to the less reputed, Mexican league. Bale - is still 33, but since he left Tottenham, in summer 2021, he's played only 650 league minutes. 7 full length matches in more than 1 year, but in fact he plays in average less than 30 minutes per match now in the MLS. Definitely he's not that player, that he used to be at his top - at least as a club player. Almoez Ali, on the opposite, is a player appearing at the World Cup. As well, as these two. Also having played a lot of matches in the NT, and scored a lot of goals there. He has won the AFC Cup in 2019, being the top goalscorer and the best player of the tournament. He was the top goalscorer of the CONCACAF Gold Cup in 2021, and was chosen to the tournament's best 11. Calling him "a total noname", well... let me not to continue. If the parameter was called European Reputation, or Western Countries reputation, I would say you're absolute right. As it is World Reputation, we should remember, that there are parts of the world, where Almoez Ali is known much better And still, his reputation in the game is in fact lower, not by a small margin, that theirs - even if the number of stars at the screen looks the same.
