Last but not least the mad world of Division 5. No firm favourite any of the top 16 teams could survive D4.
Last season the stats were all over the place in this division and I expect no difference.
At the top we have the 220 rated teams. Dynamo Moscow seem a well balanced squad, good depth, I would make them clear favourites. Fiorentina in 2nd spot have a weaker keeper so I’m less sure of how they will do. 3rd place Flamengo have a good defence and attack but will suffer with midfield possesion.
Santos and West Brom are more or less one man bands with a strong position but weakness elsewhere. Cruziero and Bordeaux are much the weakest and are a long term project to move forward. There are many easy fixes in this division. I get that you all run your team your way , as do I but why play an 86 keeper when there are 87 free agents. Why have 2 strong keepers when you could trade 1 on perhaps for 3 or 4 better players.. Though as I said , each to his own.
|West Bromwich Albion||91.0||88.8||87.5||88.5||82.0||87.6||219.29|
|West Ham United||86.0||87.3||88.0||88.5||85.0||87.0||218.25|
Wow, favourites!?! If nothing else I think it rubber stamps the re-jig that I have overseen as manager to bolster the squad (at the cost of some youth overall) in order to chase promotion. We will see in another 30-odd turns if the end justifies the means.
