Couple of things on Jordan Pickford.........

1) Match engine his hair is dark brown it seems

2) Just got this training suggestion - to avoid his weaker foot....then says his "left is weak".......Jordan is left footed?

20181021100140_1.jpg

@evertonmarc thanks for those; Pickford is set as having light brown hair and as being left-footed.  I'll look into that training suggestion.

What can I tell you more than numbers? His passing abilities are overrated or all other players mentioned have been underrated
Specially his crossing attribute as the Robertson's one deserves a -2/3. Marcelo has 17

I think there's definitely a case to nerf Alexander-Arnold's passing.

His current pass completion percentage is actually a fairly shocking 77% (http://www2.squawka.com/players/trent-alex-arnold/stats#performance-score#liverpool-(current)#english-barclays-premier-league#8#season-2017/2018#819#all-matches#1-38#by-match) while Robertson for instance, with an identical passing stat but a slightly higher decision stat (+2) has a passing accuracy of 85%.

Cancelo actually has a ~86% pass accuracy and is perhaps underrated in comparison to those you listed but I think you also have to take into account the opposition they've played and the team they're and have been playing for as well as team style.

In the first instance, you didn't say if that was good or bad, or you agreed or disagreed - so I wasn't entirely sure what you were saying - no narrative. Secondly where are these figures from, for what period etc? And as you've rightly pointed out is TAA overrated or the others underrated. I only do the research for Liverpool. With regards to the Crossing attribute, and most attributes, other factors also dictate how good the crossing is - for instance Decisions, Off The Ball, Concentration.

That is tangible evidence. How do the passing stats rate against others though? For instance, how does the length of pass and frequency of pass compare? A lot of CBs have good passing rates but that is because they largely pass only 10 yards to a FB or DM. In the game for you (presuming you play as Liverpool, how do the TAA/Robertson's stats play out?

@Pete Sottrel Did you add these Pete...?

Besiktas are obligated to purchase Karius if he plays 50 games and qualifies for Europe

there's a 20% sell on clause if he does join

a further year contract option if he comes back to Liverpool

Nah I looked for a bit at his passing maps and assist xA's just to get a picture but I don't have time to compare them to the others. But that's also because I don't believe his 14 passing to be that much of an issue despite it probably being a little bit higher than he deserves. 

The only thing I'd say is that his crossing definitely is too high, considering he has only ever gotten 2 assists in the premier league and his crossing accuracy is identical to that of for instance Hector Bellerin who is a notoriously average crosser with an ingame cross attribute of 12 compared to TAA's 17 (and not room to grow to 20, like with the latter).

Lovren too continually has the clearest, most blatant lapses in concentration that is visible IRL, yet his concentration is 11? 11 isn't good, but his concentration is so blatantly awful, and has been a knock on him since his days at Lyon, surely it should be in single figures?

Regards Lovren, he does have a defensive concentration weakness I agree, but he tends to play 5/6 quality games and then makes a big mistake so I'm happy with 11 for now - which I think I reduced from last year iirc. Please adhere to the first post instruction in the thread to make life easier.

Sorry mate, some more Palace stuff. 

Sorloth: Nowhere near Premier League quality. First touch, Anticipation, Off the ball should be at max 10. Composure 12. Wage reduced to £20k p/w. 

Wan-Bissaka: Wage up to £15k p/w. Should be playing for Eng u21's but have a feeling he will switch one day to DR Congo.

Tyler Brown, James Daly and Levi Lumeka should all have loan clauses of "Can play for parent club reserves".

Jason Lokilo optional fee should be £500k not £31.36m.

Oliver Webber is on loan at Whyteleafe (i think until Jan). - https://www.footballwebpages.co.uk/whyteleafe/appearances/oliver-webber/489057

Zaf Iqbal should be the clubs chief doctor and for some reason i can't click on him. = https://www.cpfc.co.uk/teams/management-team/

Darren Powell is the 23's assistant manager.

Tim Coe is no longer at the club - https://www.londonnewsonline.co.uk/crystal-palace-part-company-with-chief-scout-tim-coe/

Kevin Gallen (ex QPR player) is now a scout at the club.

Barry Simmonds is also at the club as a scout - https://www.dailymail.co.uk/sport/football/article-6176399/Crystal-Palace-boss-Roy-Hodgson-adds-long-trusted-scout-ranks.html

Stats aren't everything because of playing style differences and perhaps suggest that maybe Kimmich/Carvajal's crossing is a touch underrated, but 17 crossing looks generous at this stage of AA's career too, even if it's been a specialist skill of his throughout his junior years. The beauty of his (justifiably) high PA is that people who want to turn him into a crossing machine should be able to achieve it with training anyway.

Robertson's PL crossing success rate is a pretty average 16% too, which doesn't really justify an exceptional crossing score of 17 (maybe some of his mentals deserve a small boost instead?) 

To put things into perspective, Ashley Young and Trippier have lower crossing ratings and hit their man 25%+ of the time, usually from more difficult deeper positions. 

There are vanishingly few players in the database with 17 crossing (don't think any other club in the database even has two wide players at that level) and no evidence to suggest that Robertson and AA are in the world elite in that respect

I hope that now I have been clearer. The stats are stats in the leagues and from last season to have a decent sample size. But the same, it's unfair he has greater or equal passing/crossing/vision (I think in the game are more important than the other attributes you mentioned) to all those RB even being clearly worse in real life. 

====================

This is for Robertson, the stats are from the leagues last season and this one:

Robertson.thumb.JPG.9bb86ad4162c27d2b2fbeea0376e9cca.JPG

I don't have the presumption to tell you which attribute to put etc but imo is appropriate at least take in consideration to change something.

@ParanoidBuddha @enigmatic As said, there are number of attributes combined that validates a certain criteria, ie TAA and crossing - maybe those other attributes don't negate the crossing rating enough perhaps. Having seen him on numerous occasions I think the crossing quality he possesses is very good in terms of accuracy - the  'corridor of uncertainty' between goalkeeper and defence. Assists are relevant but only to a point - a team that plays with a good Target Man or a Poacher may claim more assists due to the striker getting on the end of them. However, as I've constantly done since being a researcher, I will look into it.

Any thoughts on Harry Maguire CA/PA?

I'm not a knee-jerk reactionary when it comes to a few good games and wouldn't expect him to be at VVD/Ramos levels, but on the back of the season he had and subsequent World Cup performances it seems a little out of kilter with other CBs who I'd rate at a similar standard.

This is one I've thought hard about. I am very conscious of how poor our defence was last season; joint fourth for least clean sheets in the Premier League, for instance. England went to the World Cup and I think we got caught up in some ridiculous hype with him - we kept one clean sheet and didn't play a good attacking team (Colombia without James is probably the best of the bunch) until Croatia, who dominated us and of course beat us.

From what I've heard from the Leicester end, the United rumours were very much smokescreens for the likes of Skriniar and Boateng, and I don't believe he is quite the standard of defender the hype makes us believe. Particularly, I don't want to give him a ridiculously high rating now without our defensive performances improving. I would like to believe our poor defence is more down to Amartey, Morgan, inexperience of Chilwell etc. as oppose to Maguire, but there are moments of weakness in his game (pace e.g. Salah vs. Liverpool (A) last season, giving the ball away recklessly e.g. Tunisia).

Which defenders do you feel ought to be lower than him that aren't? And are there are individual attributes you think are out of line? I'd be interested to know.

I think you've got Maguire pretty spot on, both in terms of CA and attribute spread from what I have seen of him (obviously not watched many full 90s of Leicester).  If anything, a couple of attributes might be too high (passing at 16 and dribbling at 14 will be higher than a fair few top flight midfield playmakers / tricky wingers) but I realise public perception is his passing is good, and you'll have a bit of a CA point surplus from his pace and acceleration being what they are.  I'd personally consider taking his passing and dribbling down a touch and maybe raising his balance and teamwork, but certainly don't think his CA should be increased at this stage.  Obviously if he has an outstanding season to the point of the Jan/Feb data update then cross that bridge then.

No one said he's a bad player, he's really promising but atm he isn't at Kimmich, Cancelo etc level specially about passing abilities
Same for his dribbling for example, in real life he isn't even close to 14 if you compare him to the other rb and their attributes but I won't complain anymore because I understood that probably nothing will be changed.

First you put a table up with no explanation. You don't adhere to the first post in the thread. You then explain your post. I then said I will look into it. Historically I have always taken into consideration any valid points. I don't have any input to any non-LFC players (are they underrated or overrated). Have now looked into it as promised. I agree to your point and after discussion have reduced TAA accordingly. And now you moan that 'probably nothing will be changed'.:seagull:

Not sure if this is deliberate but seems odd: Even if you start the game before the tournament, Son Heung-Min has already won the Asian Games and exempted from National Service. I'm guessing the exemption is a conscious decision as it also applies to the other European based players from the squad (Hwang Hee-chang, Lee Seung-woo and Kim Jung-min) - however there's definitely an inconsidering as Jung-min and Heung-min are listed as winners while Hee-chang and Seung-woo are not.

Hi Tom, 

Thanks for the reply. You undoubtedly have seen more of him than me, and I think his attributes are fairly well spread and accurate. I'll use some other English CBs for comparison.

I'd argue for an increase on Jumping, 15 > 17. His current 15 is on par with Joe Gomez, Calum Chambers, James Tarkowski... and one point behind 5'11 Ben Mee. 

He also seems fairly comfortable with his weaker foot but is one point behind Chris Smalling (who I can assure you is a donkey in that regard), and four points behind Phil Jones for left footedness. This is probably what brings down his CA/PA more than anything. Those two have both regressed hugely in the last 3 years but are still equal/slightly superior to Maguire for CA.

Non-visible shirt numbers. 

In recent lollujo video https://youtu.be/vkzJmr-nGyw

he played against hunddersfield (in their red and black) away kit. In matchplay no numbers were visible on the shirts. 

2nd game (same video) he played Marseille (yes I know not an English team) couldn’t see their shirt numbers on their white shirts.

Could I suggest that Tom Glover (Tottenham) appears slightly overrated? Always hard with youth players but he's seldom featured for our youth sides over the last couple of years, not seeming to have progressed much if at all since his move from Australia. In game he's clearly the club's 4th best goalie and appears to have the potential to be a backup for us which he's shown no sign of with the consensus among youth watchers being that he's likely to be released next summer. The club's 4th-choice, who has been on pre-season tours and featured on the senior bench in competitive games a few times when Vorm and Lloris have been injured/suspended/hungover, is Alfie Whiteman who I think deserves a slight all-round boost (about halfway between his and Glover's current attributes, with a negative PA that gives him an outside chance of having the potential to be a backup but more likely to end up in the Championship or League One)

Agree with @Spurs08 with Glover. Talking of Tottenham, I've noticed some staff are missing, most of these are probably not in the Database however so I guess would need other data such as DOB's. If someone at SI wants the full list then let me know and I can post it.

 

One staff member who is in the DB is Jonathan Hill - Should be an U18 or U23 Data Analyst (on the game is at Crystal Palace) - https://www.linkedin.com/in/jonathan-hill-1a00086b/?lipi=urn%3Ali%3Apage%3Ad_flagship3_profile_view_base%3BKgowTY0qTz65MwaYUZCJ%2BA%3D%3D&licu=urn%3Ali%3Acontrol%3Ad_flagship3_profile_view_base-browsemap_profile

Jon Goodman is also at Spurs and not Notts County, unsure what his role would be in the game however - https://www.linkedin.com/in/jonnygoodman/?lipi=urn%3Ali%3Apage%3Ad_flagship3_search_srp_people%3BaM1%2FMKKbRomU8fiRtQCxEA%3D%3D&licu=urn%3Ali%3Acontrol%3Ad_flagship3_search_srp_people-search_srp_result&lici=GVkof4u5R%2FGZeC%2FjD30t6w%3D%3D

Google says Ben Mee is 6' but even so 16 Jumping is well above the maximum recommended for a player of his height. Worth looking at.

17 for Harry Maguire would mean he has an above average leap even for a player his size, which I'm not sure he has (bit of weight on him tbf).

Hello, I would like to give some feedback for Manchester United players :

 

Luke Shaw :

Current Determination - 12 | Personal Thoughts : 16 

A person with average self belief would not hang around, train heavily during the pre-season, fighting for his position when ridiculed publicly left and right from the manager, notching up a level to his potential, win POTM awards and bag an extension. 

 

Mata :

Current Free Kick : 16 | Personal Thoughts : 18

Current Composure - 16 | Personal Thoughts  : 17 

Mata's the calming personality in the United attacking unit and easily one of the best in the league with regards to Free kicks. Rarely would you ever see Mata whiff a freekick into oblivion. Pinpoint accuracy of the FK as well as maintaining a very high level of composure are one of his key traits. 

 

Lukaku

Current Teamwork - 14 | Personal Thoughts : 17

Current Crossing- 10 | Personal Thoughts : 14

Possibly the most selfless striker around at the moment, would probably pass to a teammate despite facing an empty net.

He has a very impressing pin point crossing when he drifts to the right wing (seen more in the 2nd half), infact he does cross quite a bitfrom the right wing when Fellaini's on the pitch. He's definitely not a 10 in crossing.

 

Fred :

Needs a slight buff in 4 areas Pace ,Acceleration ,Work rate & Teamwork by  1 Point each (Currently Acceleration : 14 , Pace : 13, Work rate : 13, Teamwork : 13)

A very nippy, quick midfielder with excellent agility and high involvement across the pitch. Currently the mentioned areas are should be slightly tweaked IMHO.

Raheem Sterling's long shot is very low at 9 as is anthony martial's long shot at 8!!

I don't think Raheem has the best long shot in the world but its not a 9, its 11 at least, as for Anthony, 8 is horrific his long shots have to be a 14 at least. both players have scored plenty of goals outside the box. Current players with a better long shot, Hector belarin LS 10, Shinji Okazaki LS 12, Lukaku LS 12, danny rose LS 12...

I think edin hazards long shot at 11 is tragic too, hazard needs 14, he's a world class player!

If you're going to suggest attribute increases you need to also suggest other attributes that can be reduced.  At this stage we aren't going to increase a player's current ability unless there has been a clear and obvious error, so we need to balance any increase with a decrease in other areas.

Is this the same with decreases? If not, then one I'd like to suggest another look at (IMO a clear error) is Michel Vorm. He's never been good for us and over the last two years he's been calamitous, giving away close to a goal per game from errors. One reason for this is that he now seems to often be unable to get down and adopt the right body shape anywhere near quickly enough (rumours are that the injury that's often kept him out is chronic and explains this) - I think his Agility, currently 13, needs a huge nerf down to the 7-8 range, with Reflexes going from 15 to 12-13. Concentration 13 is also generous given that he has a habit of doing a bit better when busy only to give away a goal from what should be a fairly straightforward save after we've been under very little pressure - I'd give him 11 here. Finally, I think Command of Area (13) is also too high - he tends to sit back on his line and rarely comes for crosses, I'd put this down to 10.

Conversly, Gazzaniga may not be too polished and this is correctly reflected in mediocre stats for his command of area, communication, decisions and speed. In terms of core goalkeeping abilities however he's been impressive and appears a far more reliable choice than Vorm. His reflexes are crucial to this, and could definitely go up as high as 16 from 14.

Somebody know what's going on with the transfer clauses in Cenk Tosun's contract at Everton?

 

 

 

The way that these were set in the database could not be used, as intended, by the game code. We've changed the clauses so that they will work, in the release version.

Fixed.

Remember the best left full back ever in FM history who never played for any top side

Leighton"Roberto Carlos" Baines :idiot:

Basically the TAA issue is just normal when you can remember this

Uk based players, and more over, british players had ALWAYS been ovverated for decades now

When did you last win the World Cup, Beret?

Google says Ben Mee is 6' but even so 16 Jumping is well above the maximum recommended for a player of his height. Worth looking at.

17 for Harry Maguire would mean he has an above average leap even for a player his size, which I'm not sure he has (bit of weight on him tbf).

Big lump as he is, he's 2 inches taller than Gomez, 3 more than Tarkowski, 4 more than Chambers and 5 more than Mee in-game. That gives him a huge advantage on jumping reach before you even start the jump. And in real life, I would consider him far more aerially dominant than any of those. 17 would put him alongside the likes of Boly, Matip, Craig Dawson - I don't think he's out of place with them.

Would be keen to get thoughts on the left footedness .
