[Australia] Data Issues

Recommended Posts

Please post any data issues related to Australia here.

As much of the data is subjective we’d ask that you respect everyone’s opinion and accept that the final decision is that of our club researchers and our heads of research. 

We also request you please adhere to the following three point plan when posting in the data topics:

·        State what you think is specifically wrong with a particular piece of data.                             

·        State what you think the data should be.                       

·        State reasons/proof for your suggested corrections/improvements.                       

Please note that any non-data issues for Australia should be posted in the appropriate thread within the League Specific Issues Forum. This would include issues such as league scheduling and league rules.

Wellington Phoenix missing 3 players

Mani (Armando Sosa Pena) - Signed with the nix and announced Oct 12th https://www.wellingtonphoenix.com/news/wellington-phoenix-sign-spanish-defensive-midfielder - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandi_(footballer)

Callan Elliot and Reuben Way https://www.wellingtonphoenix.com/news/wellington-phoenix-sign-both-new-zealand-u-20-defender-and-experienced-australian-full-back

Understandable why last two maybe missing as they only signed 2 days ago, but Mani should have been added as he signed a week ago. 

Also missing staff member who was confirmed on 13th June 

GK Coach Paul Gothard https://www.wellingtonphoenix.com/news/wellington-phoenix-appoint-goalkeeping-coach

Sarpreet Singh - Is not a CM more suited as an AMC/AML 

Also The name of the Stadium is NOT the Wellington Regional Stadium, has not been for many many years and is named the Westpac Stadium through naming rights!  Please fix this for this edition of FM. 

 Since 2017 the training ground has been at 'Martin Luckle Park' -  2017 the Phoenix moved to Martin Luckie Park which had been redeveloped with two full-sized sand-based pitches. Funding for the redevelopment came from the Phoenix as well as $550,000 given by Wellington City Council  - https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/football/a-league/88716286/no-potholes-no-bumps-wellington-phoenix-boots-finally-touch-the-green-grass-of-home

 

Also sadly must mention this, but the A-League rules do not mention anything about continental qualification rules!  It also seems that Wellington can qualify for the ACL when they in fact are excluded from qualifying due to being a NZ based club

Marcelo Carrusca is still contracted to Western Sydney Wanderers in game until the end of the 2018/2019 season, in reality he has been released by the club the end of the 2017/18 season and is now a free agent. Unfortunately I can't seem to find an official announcement but there's this article https://www.adelaidenow.com.au/sport/adelaide-united-fans-favourite-marcelo-carrusca-is-considering-playing-npl-in-sa/news-story/ddadfb6f067261cc4c869b6e51e63d04 and I'm sure the club could be contacted to verify this info. 

 

Vedran Janjetovic is contracted until 2022. https://www.a-league.com.au/news/vedran-janjetovic-resigns-western-sydney-wanderers-aleague-deal

 

2 Determination for Josh Risdon seems extremely low, considering he's the Socceroos first choice RB.

 

Tate Russell is a right fullback, not midfielder.

This might be a small issue that the history of the all of the NPL clubs stops at the 2013-14 season instead of being the 2017-18 season as of the start of the game.

The league rules for the A-league are incorrect. You are allowed 5 foreigners of any nationality where in the game it has max 4 and allowed 1 Asian player. Ritchie de laet is not listed as a designated player so his 15k wage impacts the salary cap taking you over the cap, also the correct term is marquee not designated. Nathaniel Atkinson plays right back but is listed as a right midfielder and central midfielder in the game.

Clubs/Leagues

Riverside Olympic FC have been promoted from the Northern Championship to the NPL (https://www.examiner.com.au/story/5706553/riversides-roar-emotion/)

Glenorchy Knights have been promoted from the Southern Championship to the NPL (https://www.sliceofcheese.net/knights-win-championship-promotion/)

The current FM database lacks consistency at the second tier of Tasmanian football. In the south 4/8 clubs are in the database. Missing are Beachside FC, Southern FC, Hobart United and Nelson Eastern Suburbs United. (http://websites.sportstg.com/comp_info.cgi?c=1-8296-120731-471029-0) In the north all but North Launceston Eagles FC is in the database. One of the teams listed in the northern comp is not in it: Prospect Knights. (http://websites.sportstg.com/comp_info.cgi?a=LADDER&compID=481044&c=1-8296-0-0-0).

FM calls the second tier leagues "Tasmanian Northern Premier League" and the "Tasmanian Southern Premier League". They are acutally the Northern Championship and Southern Championship respectively.

There is a "club" listed in the database called Tasmania NTC. The NTC program in Tasmania hasn't been run for a couple of years now.

 

Affiliations

Riverside Olympic are affiliated with Brisbane Roar (https://www.examiner.com.au/story/5706553/riversides-roar-emotion/?cs=96)

 

Nathaniel Atkinson (Melbourne City)

As one of the few Tasmanians playing pro, I thought I'd note a few errors with him in FM19:

The game has him listed in the Melbourne City youths. What? He played 17 HAL matches last season (https://us.soccerway.com/players/nathaniel-atkinson/493953/)

DOB is 13/6/99.

He is now a RB not a RW.

Born in Launceston (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nathaniel_Atkinson).

 

There is obviously also a lot of errors in player history and many missing players that should be in the db

 

I know this is a massive list but thanks to anyone that enacts this stuff.

The editing could be worse for the A-League but it's yet another year where the team is clearly undermanned, here are my fixes for the database. All of these suggestions are pretty clear and should be obvious to watchers of the league. 

Adelaide United
George Blackwood – Second position should be LW, remove CM from his positions.

Ryan Kitto – Finishing from 6 to 12, was Uniteds top goal scorer last year, dribbling from 10 to 12

Apostolos Stamatelopoulos – probably has a lot of blank stats, 10 strength and balance, 8 first touch

Louis D'Arrigo – Should be CDM not CB, also a CM and better potential – he was the Y-League player of the year. Left footer

Jordan Elsey – In the youth team for some reason, will be the starting CB and needs a big boost. Heading from 10 to 14, tackling and marking both 13, strength 13 to 15, he needs to be a better player than Regan basically.

Kristin Konstandopoulos – Central midfielder like his brother, remove both wings from his positions

Ryan Strain – Primary position should be RB, will be the starting there for the first team. Acceleration and Pace should be around 13, 15 stamina, 11 crossing. In general should be closer to Michael Marrone and Galloways ability

Nikola Mileusnic – 12 Acceleration to 16 and 12 pace to 17, one of the fastest players in the league. Not sure why he is in the youth squad, had a good season last year and will be the best reserve winger

Michael Marrone – Could receive a slight downgrade due to age and as Strain has taken preference over him.

Daniel Margush – One of Australia’s best young keepers, should be in the Australia u23s squad so ability upgrade. Needs to be better playing out from the back.

Central Coast
Tom Hiariej – Shouldn’t be a CB at all, please remove that, should be more capable of playing CM. Crossing should be 14, excellent at putting the ball in the area.

Andrew Hoole – Should be more capable on the left wing and less capable of playing right back

Kalifa Cissé – Should be 20 as a CB and CDM

 Tommy Oar – Should be less capable of playing LB (he was more of a LWB) and accomplished at CAM.

Melbourne City
Eugene Galekovic – Sadly has dropped off with age and needs a bit more of a downgrade

Bart Schenkeveld – Very fast for a CB, Acceleration from 11 to 15 and pace 12 to 15

Nathaniel Atkinson – It’s crazy that he can’t even play RB, needs to be natural there and less so as a winger and CM, could have a potential boost too.

Lachlan Wales – Needs at least 14 pace and acceleration, minimum 13 free kick taking and in general more ability.

Victory
Thomas Deng – Somehow is in the youth squad despite making his Socceroos debut, needs a big upgrade and should be better than Ansell. As a smaller centreback he is quite fast and agile, should have 15 for pace and acceleration, 13 for agility and balance. He needs to be more capable at crossing, dribbling and passing as he’s also excellent at full back. Awer Mabil should be a friend.

Birkan Kirdar – An aggressive youngster who should have higher potential

James Troisi – Should be natural at CAM, he’s played there most of his career

Newcastle Jets
Jason Hoffman – Should be able to play in all right sided positions, spent a lot of time at RM last season. Small upgrade to finishing from 9 to 11 and first touch 8 to 10 as he is a good target man while playing striker.

Kosta Petratos – Should be accomplished at LW and RW

Ivan Vujica – In the youth squad for some reason despite being the best left back at the club, needs an upgrade

Lachlan Jackson – Needs downgrade to physical stats, he should have lower acceleration, pace, agility and stamina.

Perth Glory
Brendon Santalab – At 35 years of age Santa shouldn’t have 14 acceleration and 14 pace, 10 would be better.

Brandon Wilson – Primarily a CM and CDM not a RB

Jacob Italiano – One of Australia’s brightest young wingers, not sure on his potential but I’d say at least -7.5, he should be a Gladbach player who is loaned back to Perth until the end of the season. Should be LW not ST with good dribbiling, agility and first touch. Make sure you get this guy right.

Sydney FC
Jop van der Linden – Has always been a CB, should only be competent at left back.

Charles Lokolingoy – Should be faster and have a small upgrade to his other physical attributes

Wellington
Mitch Nichols – Needs a downgrade, hasn’t played much football for a while and has dropped off since his WSW days

Sarpreet Singh – Should be more of a LW and CAM not CM, otherwise looks good!

Wanderers
Roly Bonevacia – Been playing as a LW should be unconvincing there

Ruon Tongyik – Talented young CB, should be faster and have strong physical attributes

Kosta Grozos – Was supposed to be starting CM until injury, should be CDM/CM not ST should have more ability and potential

Keanu Baccus – In the youth squad for some reason, starting CM for the WSW and

To piggyback on the above comment
 

Adelaide
Isias - is eligible for Australia but ingame has him listed for eligibility in 5 years?
Ryan Kitto - Shocking stats for someone who played 24 games for Adelaide last year, should have better dribbling and crossing

 

Newcastle
Angus Thurgate - Is working his way into the Newcastle squad and is highly rated by the club, should not have worse stats than he did in last edtion
Dimitri Petratos - As mentioned above is horribly understatted for his performance last season, should have higher finishing, dribbling, technique and mentals
Mitch Austin - Pace and Acceleration are too low

Perth

Chris Harold - Has been a solid a-league player for years, technicals should be better than they are.

Re / To Aussie researcher
Feel free to adjust him as you see fit - but he should hold some possibilities to play CB. DMC should be his natural position - but he can play at any back position if this is ultimately required and has done so in the past.

Almost the whole Newcastle Squad's stats from the players at the club the year before don't reflect their form from the previous season. Also Jason Hoffman should be accomplished at RW, Dimi Petratos at both wings and attacking mid, Johnny Koutroumnbis at RB, Roy Odonovan at Striker as he hasnt played RW if at all in years and alot of our youth players have the wrong position when you start a new career mode example Pat Panglois is a CB but it started him as a midfielder for me

Unable to register players from the default Sydney FC Squad.

Siem de Jong's wage of 9k is a large percentage of the total wage budget for an A-League club, making it almost impossible to register him

With these errors, the order really shouldn't be like this as Melbourne Victory and Sydney FC should be dominating the league as they are in real life. Also, Wellington Phoenix (which should be the name, not Phoenix as its shows here) should not be this strong in the A-League as they haven't made the finals for three seasons now.

Were you controlling the Phoenix, or is their team just way too strong? They have the weakest squad in the league.

Wellington Phoenix missing 3 players

Mani (Armando Sosa Pena) - Signed with the nix and announced Oct 12th https://www.wellingtonphoenix.com/news/wellington-phoenix-sign-spanish-defensive-midfielder - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mandi_(footballer)

Callan Elliot and Reuben Way https://www.wellingtonphoenix.com/news/wellington-phoenix-sign-both-new-zealand-u-20-defender-and-experienced-australian-full-back

Understandable why last two maybe missing as they only signed 2 days ago, but Mani should have been added as he signed a week ago. 

Also missing staff member who was confirmed on 13th June 

GK Coach Paul Gothard https://www.wellingtonphoenix.com/news/wellington-phoenix-appoint-goalkeeping-coach

Sarpreet Singh - Is not a CM more suited as an AMC/AML 

Also The name of the Stadium is NOT the Wellington Regional Stadium, has not been for many many years and is named the Westpac Stadium through naming rights!  Please fix this for this edition of FM. 

 Since 2017 the training ground has been at 'Martin Luckle Park' -  2017 the Phoenix moved to Martin Luckie Park which had been redeveloped with two full-sized sand-based pitches. Funding for the redevelopment came from the Phoenix as well as $550,000 given by Wellington City Council  - https://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/football/a-league/88716286/no-potholes-no-bumps-wellington-phoenix-boots-finally-touch-the-green-grass-of-home

Stadium names prob due to licence.  Same as Perth and Melbourne Stadium . But they could just name them Wellington Stadium or Perth Stadium ... It's a bit more professional than saying its rectangular

Melbourne Victory's salary for their players is 4000 pounds over the maximum salary, meaning that not all their current squad can be registered.

Share on other sites

Melbourne City's salary is over the salary cap too (Even if De Laet is counted as a marquee).

Central Coast Mariners start with McCormack unregistered, they do not have enough cap space to register him, he should probably be made a marquee player or his wages reduced. Aiden O'Neill is also not registered

Brisbane Roar cannot register both Jamie Young and Brendan White under the cap. 

As said above Siem De Jong cannot be registered for Sydney FC under the cap, he is a designated player. Daniel De Silva is under the cap.

 

So pretty much half the A-League teams on FM cannot register their actual A-League team!

So doing some quick calculations, it looks like that the salary cap per week is wrong. 

 

With 28,000 pounds per week, thats around $2.6M AUD a year. Referring to the salary cap system https://www.a-league.com.au/salary-cap-system thats actually the LEAST amount a club can spend on its club's salary, not the most. This is 30k pounds a week. That was for last season, we can assume that this season it would be more.

Also, the minimum squad size of 15 players is wrong. The actual minimum squad size is 20 players.

The Melbourne Victory NPL side is set up as a standalone club when it is essentially the youth side that play in the state league. That club is affliated with the A-League entity to enable 'loans' out to replicate what happens in real life. s a result most of Victory's youth players in FM are contracted to the NPL entity and not the main team, and the game acts as if the players need to be bought. Should start contracted to the main A-League side and possibly go up/down like how big Euro clubs do with their B sides that play in senior divisions below the main team's one.

James Troisi should be a designated player, as without doing so it is not possible to register other players (eg: https://www.ftbl.com.au/news/muscat-were-doing-everything-to-keep-george-486161)

Johnny Koutrombis (Newcastle) is likely out indefinitely due to thyroid cancer :( - https://www.a-league.com.au/news/koutroumbis-unavailable-due-illness

Tommy Oar should also be able to play AM L - he played there at the 2014 World Cup for Aus and would definitely be at minimum accomplished if not natural there.

CCM:

Daniel De Silva: Preferred foot Left

Tommy Oar: Natural LW, Competent AM (C)

Andrew Hoole: Unconvincing RB, Competent AM(C) - needs to be changed to first team, tackling down to 8, finishing up to 8, dribbling up 14

Kalifa Cisse: Natural CB, Competent CDM

Tom Hiariej: Accomplished CM, CDM Natural, CB competent, Incredible long passing need to increase passing to 13

Youth: 

Aidan Munford: GK not LW

Charles M'mbomwa - plays AM(C) for youth side

Please get rid of the FC after every team name ... unless it's like Sydney that it's  incorporated into it's name . So annoying . We know its a football club

Melbourne City's salary is over the salary cap too (Even if De Laet is counted as a marquee).

Central Coast Mariners start with McCormack unregistered, they do not have enough cap space to register him, he should probably be made a marquee player or his wages reduced. Aiden O'Neill is also not registered

Brisbane Roar cannot register both Jamie Young and Brendan White under the cap. 

As said above Siem De Jong cannot be registered for Sydney FC under the cap, he is a designated player. Daniel De Silva is under the cap.

 

So pretty much half the A-League teams on FM cannot register their actual A-League team! 

I can say that is definitely true as I tried to manage in Australia and couldn't manage the team going forward.

Can we get anything from Si about all these issues??? 

I've contacted our Head Researcher for Australia and asked him to advise on us on the reported issues.

Thanks for all these posts guys, I am logging the requests to update all the issues that that needs to be addressed.

The data lock for this database was a couple of days ago so some of the most recent transfers (e.g. Mandi, Akbari, Reuben Way) haven't been updated yet but have definitely been requested.

Just a couple of other things to note:

As Kearyn Baccus is an Injury Replacement he won't be moved to Melbourne City as that will only cause more issues with Squad Registration as the game doesn't support that contract type yet.

Idrus Abdulahi at Melbourne City is too young to be included in the game at this stage unfortunately.

Injuries that have occurred after the start of pre-season, e.g. Trent Buhagiar, aren't included for the start of the game.

Stadium names are set as their "Official" name, i.e. that name that would be used when they host an ACL or Asian Cup game. Not using the Sponsored Name is standard practice across the game (see Manchester City & Bournemouth's stadium names for example).

@prot651 I believe that FC after every club name is a licensing requirement from the FFA

Thanks for your work, much appreciated.

Just a question on clubs NPL sides, as someone pointed out they aren't really separate entities, they are pretty much the academies for each club. They probably should be on the side panel as eg Melbourne City 2/Brisbane roar 2, at the very least players should be able to move freely from one entity to the other. 

Is there a reason for this?

This is Melbourne City's NPL squad list http://websites.sportstg.com/team_info.cgi?c=0-10178-160768-479661-21800675&a=PLAYERS

The coach is our NYL coach https://www.melbournecityfc.com.au/news/City-set-sights-on-NPL-with-two-new-teams

Which is why I asked the question, the coach and squad members are in each 'club' in real life.

 

As an extra, Dylan Pierias should be proficient at rb as well as lb (although rb preferred), also should be two footed.

The reason it was separated is because the NPL competitions are unplayable leagues we can't set their season schedule to run at the time it does in real life. Countries are only able to have their Season Schedule set as Cross-Over (e.g. 2018/19 like the A-League) or Straight (e.g. 2018, 2019 like the NPLs) but not a combination of both for different competitions like Australia does. Since the NPL competitions would be running at the same time as the NYL & HAL seasons it would cause a pile-up of fixtures with players being selected for multiple games per week etc. Another issue is that some staff have one role with the HAL or NYL side and another role with the NPL side and that can't be properly implemented either.

All the HAL/NPL affiliations should have 'Players Moved Freely' ticked, I will double-check to see if there are any that haven't had this ticked

Hey Schwoods,

Is there a deadline by which you need to log these requests by? I can put some time in to go over things in detail (e.g. the NPL squads etc) but probably would be Thursday night AEST by the time I finish.

Is there any sort of guidelines about recommending stat changes as well? IE is there a max range of attributes for A-League players or anything like that? Max CA/PA ranges?

I believe the cut-off is Wednesday UK time which is some time on Thursday in Australia. At this stage though, with the requests logged needing to be made centrally by the guys at SI for all countries in the database, we'd need to prioritise the issues that directly affect the A-League the most. That said, I do appreciate the help with NPL issues so if it can't get done I will make sure it gets done for the next data update. Just to also note, for any new players being added to the database we ideally want as a starting point: Name, Date or Year of Birth, Nationality/ies, Position/s.

There's no real maximums or rigid criteria for CA/PA of A-League players & you try to call it as you see it but as a really rough guide a CA of between 90-105 is where a majority of A-League regulars would fit in but there's always exceptions to that.

Rammy Najjarine is not a CD, he can play any position in the front third, this is him scoring a goal against Korea a week ago from 1:24

In Warren Joyce last press conference he was ahead of Daniel Arzani last year to start, but got a shoulder injury, so Arzani got the chance instead, if you want to compare a player.
