Over the past weeks we often got some questions about our rating system. This included questions like: why do you rate ‘Player X’ higher than ‘Player Y’, but does he have a B1 rating and the other player an A2 rating? In this piece, we will explain our ratings carefully.
- A1 – Very good, could play higher
- A2 – Strong potential to play higher
- B1 – Good, strong player at level
- B2 – Potential to be strong player at level
- C – Average for the level, rewatch
- D – Below average, don’t follow up
This rating is given when we think that the player could move to a better team in the closest transfer window. He is one of the best, if not the best of the team and has proved that he is one of the most important players of the team.
We have got a lot of questions about this rating. Their are two scenarios for this rating. Either the player in question is currently a good player at the current level but has the potential to move to a better team in the nearby future (1-2 years) or the player in question is yet to be a regular starter for his team and has shown a lot of potential.
The player in question is currently a good player at the current level but has not particularly shown that he is able to play at a higher level in the future. This includes players that are one of the best for a midtable team in a certain league or older players that will most-likely not get any better in the future.
If a player gets the B2 rating, he is either a regular starter that needs to improve to become one of the better players in the squad or he is not a regular starter yet but has not shown signs that he will outgrow the league and move to a better league in the future. The player in question could become one of the better players in the squad if he gets this rating.
Rating C / D
If a player get these ratings, there are two options. We will either rewatch (C) the player in order to determine whether the player has improved in other matches, or we don’t think there’s the need to rewatch (D) the player as he did not show any promising signs at all.
