Southend Worst Transfer-Outs XI
I don't keep track of mine, but in terms of youngish players:

GK: Ederson Moraes [Arsenal]: From 88 to 92

I knew Ederson was going to become a class player and with having De Gea, there was no option other than to sell. Still amazed that only Wolves was interested in signing him at the time - and for cash.

RB: Joao Cancelo [Everton]: From 80 to 91

Yeah.

LB: Ben Davies [Aston Villa]: From 87 to 90

I've got quite a few LBs now so no regrets.

AM: Bernardo Silva [Everton]: From 91 to 92

A case where I had plenty of attackers, he wasn't playing much at City and I had the opportunity to bring in a top class CB prospect at the time in Christensen. Since then, the latter has become frozen out while Bernardo has gone from strength to strength and will rise to 93.

LM: Heung-Min Son [Southampton]: From 90 to 92

At the time I had 50 billion attackers and still have plenty. He'll rise to 93 but not got any regrets as such.

I'm sure there are plenty more, and Brahim Diaz and Mikel Merino will probably be added to the list.

Dont worry i am feeling similar for Konate and Leite.... Oh lets not talk about Sane or Rabiot...
Wish I could feel that way. Konate though :drool: been killing it every time I've watched him this season.

If De Ligt ends up at United, then name your price, GS.
And when he doesn't, GS can sell him to me. Everyone's happy.

Drew 1:1 to Newcastle despite dominating. I'm not sure whether the subs actually worked, as on the line-ups bit it correctly shows Christensen and Dele coming on, however on the tactics bit from 45m onwards it shows Roberto and Kovacic instead - and not in the position that I put Christensen on.

De Gea (95)

Kimmich (92) Ramos (95) Alaba (93) Gaya (90)

Pogba (93) Eriksen (93)
Martial (90) Kroos (95) Sterling (93)➕
Griezmann (95)⚽⭐

Subs: Stones (91), Roberto (91), Christensen (90), Kovacic (91), Dele (92), Brandt (90), Goretzka (91)
Injured: Boateng (93)
Suspended: Mbappe (93)
Did not travel: Cech (89)

Key:
⚽ = Goal
➕ = Assist
⭐ = MOTM
= Subbed off
= Subbed on


Next three games:
CCQFL2: Borussia Monchengladbach (A)
MD34: Liverpool (A)
MD35: Nottingham Forest (H)

De Gea and Kimmich the only two to have played every single minute.

Only Alisson has played all games for me. Neymar and Koulibaly have missed the most matches, 8 each (including cup games).

Darlington were 10 points clear at one point. Now it's 3 but they have better goal difference so it's essentially 4 points. We do play each other still.

Manchester United Bundesliga players

Prediction (and very optimistic one)
  • Jerome Boateng (30/93): -1 to 92 (Sir Rahul says nada)
  • David Alaba (26/93): no change (Sir Rahul says nada)
  • Joshua Kimmich (24/92): +1 to 93 (Sir Rahul says +1)
  • Leon Goretzka (24/91): no change (Sir Rahul says +1)
  • Julian Brandt (23/90): +1 to 91 (Sir Rahul says nada)
  • Nico Elvedi (22/89): no change (Sir Rahul says nada)
  • Denis Zakaria (22/88): +1 to 89 (Sir Rahul says nada)
  • Panagiotis Retsos (20/87): no change (Sir Rahul says nada)
  • Ibrahima Konate (20/85): +3 to 88 (Sir Rahul says +2)
  • Ridle Baku (21/82): no change (Sir Rahul says nada)

UPMR = United Player Minutes Ranking (out of 41)
CR = Club Ranking in their respective league

Disclaimer: Minutes only take the league into account. A few play in other competitions which might also be taken into account when SM do their ratings.

Why do you care what he says? :lol: Imagine thinking Brandt won't rise..

I guess we'll have to wait another year for Denmark to be reviewed, @RedSky :( They haven't done Scotland either..

It is nice to compare thoughts with others. I'm bracing myself for a no change to Brandt as the Bundesliga reviews rarely go well for me.

Random rise for Ajax players :)
Congrats. Knew it was inevitable as I saw these changes a few days ago:





Neres - 88 to 90 on 23rd
de Jong - 89 to 91 on 27th
de Ligt - 89 to 91 on 27th
van de Beek - 88 to 90 on 27th
Ziyech - 90 to 91 on 27th
Onana - 89 to 90 on 27th

Guessing Tagliafico and Mazrouai will rise soon, with Son rising when Spurs are reviewed (unless the edit was just to change his picture/position).

Lost 2:1 to Forest at home. My league record the past 10 games has been atrocious: Won 2, Drawn 3, Lost 5. Looks like I'm going to have to change my tactics next season. Going to get spanked against Darlington tomorrow.

City might have a a chance of getting fourth but it is over for me. I play Darlington three times in the last five games so my team morale will be well and truly destroyed.

Div 2 going to the wire.

Thank God we got over the line against Bristol despite Gregoritschs brain snap
Congrats on promotion. Same to MK Dons.

Does anyone else struggle to actually get on the SM site? Crashing all the time at the moment.
They're certainly not spending the money they get from the 5973 different projects they run on upgrading servers.

Narrow 1:0 win against Darlington in the home leg despite trouncing them in terms of stats. Dele and Kimmich are suspended for the away leg, which I fully expect Darlington to comfortably win, leading to a final showdown of Darlington v Manchester City
