Major League Lacrosse’s All-Time Top 20 Players: 5-1
PHOTO BY RON CHENOY/PRETTY INSTANT
Major League Lacrosse is celebrating its 20th anniversary in 2020. Some of the best lacrosse players in the world have suited up in the league, and with careful consideration, we are revealing the top 20 players in league history through the end of this week.
Today, we unveil the final five players. Follow along and join in on the discussion on Twitter (@uslacrossemag).
Note: All-Star appearances include appearances with Team U.S.A. when the setup was the U.S. national team vs. MLL All-Stars.
MLL All-Time 20
5. Gary Gait
The icon played in MLL’s inaugural season at the age of 34. That season, he scored 30 goals and helped the Lizards win the first league championship. For the next four seasons, he acted as a player-coach for the Bayhawks, winning two more championships, including during the 2005 season in which he was both MLL MVP and championship game MVP. He scored six goals in the final game.
4. Brodie Merrill
A ground ball machine, Merrill collected nearly 1,000 ground balls over his 14-year MLL career. He won six consecutive Defensive Player of the Year awards (2006-11), played in seven All-Star Games and won three championships.
3. Casey Powell
In his last MLL game in 2016, Powell scored two goals and added an assist to sit first in league history in career points (527), though that record would quickly be broken. John Grant Jr. now sits first in career points. At the time, it was just one more accomplishment for Powell, who was a three-time league champion, MLL MVP (2014) and two-time Offensive Player of the Year — an astonishing nine seasons apart (2005, 2014).
2. Paul Rabil
He was the face of the league during his 12-year career, and he is the owner of a long list of accolades. He is a two-time MVP (2009, 2011), three-time Offensive Player of the Year (2009, 2011, 2012), eight-time All-Star, and two-time league champion. In 2018, he broke the record for most career-points, finishing his MLL career with 571. He is now second in points behind Grant Jr.
1. John Grant Jr.
At 44, he came out of retirement and broke the league’s all-time scoring record. He also was Denver’s third-leading scorer (21 goals, 18 assists). Throughout his 14-year career, he has two MVP awards (2007, 2008), three Offensive Player of the Year awards (2001, 2007, 2008), and helped his teams win five MLL championships.
Check back to USLaxMagazine.com later this afternoon for a feature on John Grant Jr. by Kenny DeJohn, commemorating his standing at No. 1 in Major League Lacrosse history and looking ahead to his future as the offensive coordinator at Johns Hopkins.
WINNER: Top 10 Lacrosse Legends
LAS strives to give away as much sweet gear as possible to our loyal readers, so first off, we want to thank everyone for getting involved in all our recent contests. They’ll keep coming all throughout the Fall! In fact, we might even have another one later today! Another caption contest perhaps?
For now, let’s focus on one of the most significant contests LaxAllStars. com has ever orchestrated – our search for the best list of Top 10 Lacrosse Legends.
A few weeks ago, Connor Wilson presented his list of Top 10 Lacrosse Player Legends and it generated some serious attention in the lacrosse world. Some people respected his list, while others thought it was pure blasphemy. Hey, to each their own! All the feedback got us thinking about how we could shed more light on this controversial conversation, and next we asked LAS readers to share Your Top 10. Boy did you deliver!!!
This contest was a pleasure to be a part of, and we’re glad so many well-informed individuals stepped up to the plate and took a stab at challenging Connor’s original list. All the lists submitted were fantastic, but three stood out to us – not only for their player selections, but also for the reasons supplied. Each one was well thought out and made for a great read.
This sweet lid was on the line. Who’s taking it home?
We published all 3 lists on our site last week (Finalist #1, Finalist #2, Finalist #3), and we challenged YOU & THE ENTIRE LACROSSE COMMUNITY to choose which list featured the most accurate line-up of greatest lacrosse players of all-time.
Voting was simple – Click the Facebook “Like” button on the Top 10 List post you think is the best. The finalist with the most votes would win a brand new LAS Cascade Pro7 Helmet and so much respect that their list would go down in history as LaxAllStars.com’s official list of Top 10 Lacrosse Legends.
THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN
In the end, it was reader Paul Jones who came out victorious! His list featured the top 3 players from three different eras – Wooden Stick, Plastic Non-Offset, and Plastic Offset – and a #1 greatest lacrosse player of all time. It’s an aggressive list that clearly deserves a lot of respect in the lacrosse community. After all, it’s the people’s choice!
A huge congratulations goes out to Paul, one LaxAllStars.com’s most loyal readers. We’re proud to announce you as the winner!
Here is my submission for the Top 10 contest, as arranged by wood, plastic (non-offset) and plastic (w/offset). My list may be a little different because it includes many players based in New England (for obvious reasons), but also those who helped grow the game. Here it goes!
WOODEN STICK ERA
1. Jim Brown
A true legend no matter who you ask. If they know he played lacrosse, they have heard at least one story about him. Rules were changed due to things he did on the field. Legendary athlete status, hands down
2. Richard ‘Dick’ Garber
Four sport athlete at Springfield College, who dropped baseball to play lacrosse. Called the ‘Father of New England Lacrosse’. US Lacrosse Hall of Fame member. 45 year coach of University of Massachusetts lacrosse. Created mystique of ‘Garber’s Gorillas’ which still exists today. Lacrosse field at UMass named after him. Son Ted still coaches and grandson Brett was All American in high school and college (UMass) and plays for the Rochester Rattlers
3. Lee Pinney
Played for Cornell during the early 60s. Farm owner in Somers, CT who stopped planting a portion of his crop fields to make lacrosse fields. Responsible for growth of youth and adult lacrosse leagues in Connecticut and Western Massachusetts. At 60+ years old, still puts on the equipment and plays organized lacrosse in the PVLL men’s league in Connecticut, this past season with the Boondock Saints. US Lacrosse Connecticut Chapter Hall of Fame
PLASTIC NON-OFFSET ERA
1. Gary Gait
Revolutionized the sport with one move (Air Gait) and rules were changed due to his play on the field. Along with brother Paul, helped introduce Canadian Box style of play, and showed even Roy Simmons Jr that you could play with dominant hand only and still be very effective. Has won at EVERY level and style of play. Involved with evolution of equipment as well. Now coaching and teaching the game
2. John Fay
UNH (New Hampshire) player and then US National Team in early 80s. Known for playing with almost no pocket on his stick, so he could finish faster. All-World selection after 1982 world games. Got into sales and marketing of uniforms through his company Atlantic Sportswear, who helped push the envelope with lacrosse specific uniforms. Still plays, and can run with almost anyone still
3. Dave Pietramala
Revolutionized the game with his style of defense. One of the best defenseman ever, known as the originator of the take-away defenseman. Standout as a player at John’s Hopkins and now head coach at JHU. Reinstilled winning tradition at JHU, and has won 2 Division 1 National Titles as a coach. The first person to win D1 titles as both player and a coach.
PLASTIC OFFSET ERA
1. Matt Striebel
2x All American from Princeton, also won 2 National Titles and runner-up once. Also played varsity soccer all 4 years. 3x US National team member, has been on 2 gold medal winning teams. Has won at every level he has played. Now involved coaching and teaching with Trilogy Lacrosse. Infectious personality who has a pure love of the game. Plays midfield, even though still one of the oldest players in MLL.
2. Paul Rabil
Whether you love him or hate him, he is the new FACE of lacrosse. Made the swim move popular as a go-to dodge. The guys just flat out wins wherever he plays…JHU, US National team and hopefully with the Boston Cannons in 2011. Endorsement deals with all sorts of companies, both in and out of the lacrosse industry…a marketing machine and a lacrosse playing machine.
3. Mikey Powell
4x All American, 4x D1 Attackman of the Year, 2x National Title, 2x winner of the Tewaarton Trophy (only multiple winner so far), ’06 All World player for US National team, Syracuse All-time points. Does anything more need to be said? He broke the mold…undersized by lightning fast. You can’t stop him, you can only hope to contain him!
#1 GREATEST LACROSSE PLAYER OF ALL-TIME
As a high school player held the national record for goals scored with 362 (and held the record for almost 10 years), 2x National Champion with Virginia, 2010 MLL Player of the Year AND MLL Offensive Player of the Year. Part of Trilogy coaching staff. Named new head coach at Wagner College. In addition to everything he has done on the field, he has battled and WON his fight against testicular cancer. Herculean at a minimum. Lance Armstrong is legendary for winning the Tour de France after fighting TC…and Poskay should be held in the same regard, having beaten TC before the 2010 season.
Matt Poskay was a unique #1 choice! Props!
Top 10 Greatest Lacrosse Players of All Time
January 10, 2021
Lacrosse is a contact team sport in which a team tries to win by shooting a small rubber ball into the opponent’s goal using a lacrosse stick. Here we countdown the Top 10 Greatest Lacrosse Players of All Time.

Legendary players Jason Coffman holds the number 1 spot in the list of top 10 greatest lacrosse players of all time.

He was also a great team player having created 202 assists.
9. Jim Thorpe
One of the greatest athletes who played multiple sports, Jim Thorpe, holds the 9th spot in the list of top 10 greatest lacrosse players of all time. His ability to play a variety of sports and excel at each of them is unbelievable and still, there hasn’t been an athlete of his caliber. He only played Lacrosse in his high school but his records in high school itself along with the fact that he is such a legend are enough for him to feature on this list.
8. John Grant Senior
At number 8 in the list of top 10 greatest lacrosse players of all time, we have John Grant. His son, John Grant Junior is regarded as one of the best Lacrosse players in the world right now especially for the mad one-handed techniques that he has learned from his dad John Grant Sr. Grant Sr is has a legendary status in Canada and it was him who paved way for so many Canadians in the NCAA.
7. Paul Gait
At number 7 in the list of top 10 greatest lacrosse players of all time, we have Paul Gait. He is often considered the best Lacrosse player of all time, though his personal achievements have been overshadowed by that of his brother Gary He helped his college win the NCAA Championship three times and was himself selected as First Team All-Americans three times.
6. Dave Pietramala
At number 6 in the list of the top 10 greatest lacrosse players of all time, we have Dave Pietramala. He is often regarded as the best defenseman in the history of the game. Dave is also the only person to win NCAA both as player and coach and has been named both the player and coach of the year. He has also been inducted into the US Lacrosse Hall of Fame.
5. Michael Powell
At number 5, we have Michael Powell. He is one of the greatest college lacrosse players ever. And, if it had this been a list about top college lacrosse players, he might be at number 1. He has been named four times in first-team All-American at his Syracuse University team. Despite the fact that he gave up his lacrosse career for music, his skills on the field have granted him legendary status among the fans.
4. Oren Lyons
At number 4 in the list of the top 10 greatest lacrosse players of all time, we have Oren Lyons. He is one of the best goalies of the game. And in even 81, he would still give better performance in front of the nets than most of the rookies out there. Apart from being an All-American and his team being undefeated in his senior year, what makes him really special is how much he has done for the Native’s rights and recognition.
3. Jim Brown
At number 3, we have Jim Brown. He is known worldwide for his glory on the football field. And, he is rightly considered to be the greatest professional football player ever. But a lesser-known fact is Jim was a superb multi-sport athlete who also excelled at Lacrosse and Basketball. He was even named in first-team All-American in lacrosse and with 43 goals in 10 games. He held the second spot in the nation for scoring.
2. Gary Gait
At number 2 in the list of top 10 greatest lacrosse players of all time, we have Gary Gait. He is one of the greatest Canadian lacrosse players ever having won three NCAA Championships, Lt.

- Top 5 Ranked Mens Lacrosse Players Of All Time
Who are the top 5 men’s lacrosse players of all time?
The top 5 greatest lacrosse players of all time include:
- Jim Brown
- Gary Gait
- Mikey Powell
- John Grant Jr.
- Paul Rabil
Honorable mentions: Casey Powell, Lyle Thompson, Rob Pannell, Oren Lyons
1. Jim Brown
- National Lacrosse Hall of Fame (1983)
- NCAA Men’s Lacrosse First Team All-American (1957) & Second Team (1956)
- Syracuse University #44 Retired – Cleveland Browns #32 Retired
- 2014 Muhammed Ali Humanitarian Lifetime Achievement Award
- Namesake of Premiere Lacrosse League MVP Trophy
At times, Jim Brown’s excellence in lacrosse is overshadowed by his impressive accomplishments in football. Brown was one of the most exceptional athletes of his time and his greatness is recognized across multiple sports. Despite the fact that Brown went on to play professional football in the National Football League, many believe he was even better at lacrosse than football. In fact, he once said, “I’d rather play lacrosse six days a week and football on the seventh.”
Along with his numerous accolades in lacrosse, Brown was also a star football, basketball, and track star during his time at Syracuse University before his graduation in 1957. Brown was so dominant on the lacrosse field, that he takes the top spot on this list solely based on his success in collegiate lacrosse. In his junior season, Brown was a Second-Team All-American in lacrosse, followed by a First-Team selection his senior year. As a senior, Brown scored 43 goals in only 10 games for Syracuse, making him the second highest scorer nationally. Recently, the newly founded Premier Lacrosse League gave Brown the honor of naming their MVP trophy after him. He was inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 1983 and many credit his prowess on the lacrosse field to helping the sport’s popularity grow significantly in the 1950’s. Brown’s impact on the game of lacrosse is undeniable and many credit him with being the sport’s most influential figure to this day.
2. Gary Gait
- 3x NCAA DI Men’s Lacrosse Champion
- NCAA Player of the year (1988 & 1990)
- 3x NCAA Men’s Lacrosse First-Team All-American (1x Honorable Mention)
- 6x National Lacrosse League MVP
- U. S. (2005) & Canandian (2014) Lacrosse Hall of Fame Member
Gary Gait was born in Victoria, Canada and would go on to attend college at Syracuse University, becoming one of the most iconic names in lacrosse worldwide. He helped to revolutionize how many people saw the game of lacrosse through his use of unique and flashy moves such as behind the back passes or his most notable move, “Air Gait” (an acrobatic attempt to score that involved jumping from behind the crease and landing on the other side after shooting the ball). “Air Gait” became a common phrase in the sport of lacrosse, despite the fact it was later outlawed in the NCAA.
During his collegiate career, Gait was a seemingly unstoppable force. He was a 4x All American, earning an honorable mention his freshmen year, followed by first-team honors each year after. Gait also helped lead Syracuse to three National Championships during his time at the school, a tough feat that many other lacrosse legends have been unable to accomplish since. Gait earned the NCAA’s Player of the Year in both 1988 and 1990, along with the Most Outstanding Player in the 1990 NCAA tournament. He graduated as Syracuse University’s leading scorer and went on to have an equally impressive professional career.
Gait set numerous scoring records in the National Lacrosse League. He also won the league’s MVP award a record 6 times, five of those times being consecutive! In Major League Lacrosse, Gait spent significantly less time on the playing field. However, this didn’t stop him from winning numerous awards including MLL MVP, MLL All-Star game MVP, and MLL Championship game MVP. Following his extremely impressive collegiate and professional careers, Gait was quickly welcomed into the U.S., Canadian, and National Lacrosse League Hall of Fames. He would also continue his legacy through coaching and the development of the Gait lacrosse brand (along with his brother Paul), which manufactures various equipment for the sport. With one of the most iconic names in lacrosse to this day and a seemingly never ending list of awards and records, Gait has easily earned the #2 stop on this list.
3. Mikey Powell
- 2x NCAA DI Men’s Lacrosse National Champion
- 4x NCAA Men’s Lacrosse First-Team All-American
- 4x NCAA Jack Turnbull (Top Attackmen) Award
- 2x NCAA Tewaaraton (Most Outstanding Player) Award
- 1x Lt. Raymond Enners Award (Best Men’s Lacrosse Player)
Mikey Powell is arguably the greatest attackman to ever play collegiate lacrosse. His impact from the attack position was undeniable as he led his alma mater, Syracuse University, to two NCAA National Championships during his time there from 2001-2004. He also holds the school’s record for most career points. Mikey Powell had a hard legacy to live up to, considering his older brothers Casey and Ryan graced the field for Syracuse in the years before him. Despite his brothers’ many successes, most consider Mikey to be the best of the three Powells. Mikey Powell received NCAA First-Team All-American honors in each of his four seasons. He was also recognized as the NCAA’s best attackman by winning the Jack Turnbull Award in every season as well. Powell broke numerous records during his collegiate career (many held by his own brothers) and sat at 6th in NCAA career points and 13th in career assists upon his graduation. Additionally, Powell was a two-time NCAA Tewaaraton Award winner during his collegiate career, which is essentially equivalent to the Heisman trophy of lacrosse.
As a huge surprise to most of the lacrosse community, Powell elected not to immediately play professional lacrosse after his graduation, and instead pursued a music career. In 2005, Powell joined Major League Lacrosse by playing alongside fellow Syracuse lacrosse legend Gary Gait on the Baltimore Bayhawks. He also won the MLL All-star game MVP award during that season. While his professional career was not very lengthy, Powell contributed significantly to the United State’s Lacrosse World Championship run in 2006, and was selected to the All-World team consequently.
4. John Grant Jr.
- 1x Jack Turnbull (Top Attackmen) Award Winner (1999)
- 1x USILA National Collegiate Player of the Year (1999)
- 3x National Lacrosse League MVP
- 2x Major League Lacrosse MVP
- 3x Major League Lacrosse Offensive Player of the Year
John Grant Jr. did not have the typical collegiate career of most athletes on this list. Collegiate lacrosse is perhaps even more popular than professional lacrosse in the eyes of many lacrosse fans. Therefore, Grant’s place on this list despite his unusual path in collegiate lacrosse is not to be taken lightly. Grant Jr. spent time in the OLA (Ontario Lacrosse Association) Junior A division prior to his time in college. In fact, he was drafted into the NLL in 1995 but elected to attend school at SUNY Morrisville instead. Grant Jr. spent 2 years at SUNY Morrisville, then transferred to the University of Delaware where he began to receive the recognition he deserved. At the University of Delaware, Grant Jr. was a two-time All-American in his final two seasons. In his senior year, he earned the Jack Turnbull Award and USILA National Collegiate Player of the Year in 1999. John Grant Jr. set nearly every lacrosse record at both SUNY Morrisville and the University of Delaware. Additionally, his 110 point senior season remains 10th in all time NCAA single season points for the sport.
Grant Jr.’s list of professional awards seems to be endless as he is one of the most decorated players at the professional level of the sport. His excellence has been recognized by every league he played in, including the NLL, MLL, MSL, OLA, and in international play as well. When Grant Jr. returned to the NLL in 1999, he was the #1 overall pick and would go on to win the NLL Rookie of the Year Award in that same season. In both 2007 and 2008, he won MLL Offensive Player of the Year and League MVP. Grant Jr. briefly retired in 2017, but soon returned to the MLL in 2019 at the age of 44, making him the oldest player to ever play in the league. In his first game back from retirement, Grant Jr. surpassed Paul Rabil as Major League Lacrosse’s all time leading scorer.
5. Paul Rabil
- 2x NCAA DI Men’s Lacrosse National Champion
- 3x NCAA Men’s Lacrosse All-American (2x First-Team, 1x Third-Team)
- 2x Major League Lacrosse MVP
- 3x Major League Lacrosse Offensive Player of the Year
- 2014 World Lacrosse Championship Winner (Team USA)
Just like those before him on this list, Paul Rabil helped popularize the game of lacrosse and led it though yet another evolutionary phase. Similar to names like Jim Brown or Gary Gait, Paul Rabil significantly contributed to the growth and development of the sport as a whole. To many younger players, Rabil’s name is synonymous with success in the lacrosse world. Paul Rabil played his collegiate career at Johns Hopkins University where he won two National Championships and received All-American honors three times. Following his time at Johns Hopkins, the professional lacrosse environment is where Rabil became a household name for many lacrosse fans. Rabil was the #1 overall pick in the 2008 MLL draft and was also selected to the league’s all-star game in his first season. In 2009 and 2011, Rabil won both the MLL MVP and Offensive Player of the year. He continued to shine throughout his career in the MLL and NLL, earning almost too many awards to name, including multiple All-Pro selections.
Rabil has secured various sponsorship deals throughout his career. These include deals with Redbull, Warrior Sports (New Balance), Polk Audio, and numerous other companies. At one point, Rabil held the world record for the fastest lacrosse shot at 111 MPH. He went on to co-found the Premier Lacrosse League (PLL) in 2019 along with the help of his brother. Rabil’s belief behind the PLL was to provide a competitive and entertaining professional lacrosse league that could actually support players as their full-time job. This is another huge stride that Rabil has made towards transforming the game of lacrosse. Whether it be his contribution on the field or off the field, Paul Rabil is always mentioned alongside some of lacrosse’s greatest players.

Top 10 Best Lacrosse Players of All Time
1 Paul Rabil
You have the most skills, I have seen your offseason workouts for the Lizards, and I am subscribed to your youtube channel and you give a lot of tips.
Paul Rabil scores goals at will and makes it look easy. He is definitely the best lax player of all time!
I’ve been watching some of your videos and you are my favourite player in the hole WORLD
I think you are the best lacrosse player because I have seen all of you games on YouTube
2 John Grant Jr.
When I metJohn Grant at a Valor lacrosse tryout, my heart nearly stopped. John Grant isn’t just one of the top three of all time, he’s the best to ever play the game. You think about his persistence when he injured his knee, it almost ended his life. But he fought through it and became better than he was before at the position of attack. John Grant has always been my favorite player, even though I play midfield. Now granted, Lyle Thompson will some day be higher on this list than he is, but in my opinion, he is presently the greatest player of all time.
By far the best Lacrosse player ever. Especially if you include his Box lacrosse acomplishments as well.
I have seen your highlights and my mind has been blown
John Grant Jr. Is the best lax player of all time.
3 Thomas Sears
First goalie I ever saw take over a lacrosse game. At Uva in ’81 (I think)… incredible save, lazer clearing passes… and coming out of the goal decking guys…
4 Conor Gill
5 Paul Gait
Just as good as gary goat squared. Sick lefty
I think he’s the best of all time
His brother isn’t bad either.
He is as soon good like me
6 Mikey Powell
Mikey Powell can do amazing tricks like doing a front flip then shooting it behind his back! He is an amazing lacrosse player and his brother isn’t too bad either.
Cool how his last name is named after a Skateboard brand. He has a great Lacrosse brother too.
When I met you at rhino camp you had awesome moves props to the “Ostrich”
I love this guy, he has incredible accuracy and constincy, I see this guy as one of the best
7 Brian Wood
Played with angainst Brian all I can say it was pure poetry. He is and always will be the greatest of all time. Watch his film. You tell me
8 Mark Millon
Best shooter, quickest moves, innovator, tough, never scared to drive to the cage, 94 world cup mvp
Mark Millon is the best and an insiration to who ever sees him play
9 Kyle Harrison
Love this guy. I’ve seen him in person in multiple occasion. He is an amazing play as well!
Super cool guy, and the best player out their (even better than Paul Rabil
Amazing got his kit as well designed by him to
This guy has skills!
10 Jim Brown
James Nathaniel Brown is a former professional American football player and actor. He was a running back for the Cleveland Browns of the National Football League from 1957 through 1965.
One thing I have to say, : The only reason people think paul rabil is the best is because he gets all the endorsements. I watched him play live and he isn’t that good. he doesn’t play real lacrosse. by that I mean he doesn’t pass. This guy Jim Brown the football running back fro the browns actually had mad skills at lacrosse. he should be at least top ten. I don’t if he’s better than rabil or not because he played 50 years ago but people please realize that paul rabil isn’t as good as you think he is.
He is way better than any lacrosse player ever. He was so big and fast he could run over anyone and was amazing at the game
Tremendous athlete – played during a period when lacrosse was not nearly as popular as it is today
Actually, football was his #2 sport at Syracuse – in his passion.
11 Gary Gait
For Paul Gait to be higher than his brother is OUTRAGEOUS. Gary Gait changed the game. No one will ever forget the Air Gait. He carried Syracuse on his shoulders, and it was him that brought them to the championship title. Now yes, Paul does sometimes get overshadowed by Gary, but Gary is still one of the top three ever.
Should probably be #1 player. Dominant, spectacular, made those around him better; changed the game.
Having Gait at 12 gives this list zero credibility. Number 12? Are you kidding me?
I am in u11 field lacrosse and one of the kids has your old helmet pretty cool
12 Matt Ward
Are you brothers with Dillon ward?
13 Casey Powell
Casey Powell not being on the top 5 makes me so mad. You think about how long this man has played and how much he has changed the game, and you find that he is classified as a LEGEND. Casey Powell truly is a lacrosse legend.
Casey is a legend. He always sets up clinics at my lacrosse fields and he is a true legend. If you haven’t seen him up close, you haven’t seen him before.
This man should be top 5. MLL MVP and Off MVP when he’s in his late 30’s. Unreal.
Ryan Mastin which is me
14 Max Seibald
Best MLL player by far. Since coming into the league this guy has proven he’s one of the best scoring middies. He is one of the fastest players on his team… The Denver Outlaws.
Did a clinic at a summer camp I was at clearly there to help the kids and to show his overall skill
My name is max
15 Rob Pannell
He is number one he is the goat way better than paul
Better than John Grant Jr. in my opinion.
Rob has elusev speed
16 John Tavares
Hall of Fame Class of 2016. Ranks first in points, goals, and assists.
Best to ever play
Most points in nll. Most consistent ever
All time leader indoor lacrosse..!.. #bestever
17 Lyle Thompson
All time leading points scorer in NCAA. 175 goals, 225 assists, 400 total points
Best player ever. No way you would pick some1 else first. YOU DO NOT WANT HIM ON THE OPPOSING TEAM
18 Dave Pietramala
This man REDEFINED lacrosse and the position of defense. I was shocked when I didn’t see him in the top 5. Pietramala is a legend.
Goat also. Set the mold for d
Best ever. Period.
19 Roy Colsey
Your skills amaze me so much and I know its hard to be a top middfielder with a hat trick every game
Best midfilder. Cannon shot, never afraid to shoot, ran all day, fast, good d,
20 Matt Rambo
Beast.could overpower most. When it counted he was all net
21 Chazz Woodson
Dunk Master. Enough said
22 Frank Urso
For those of us who first learned with traditional sticks and even remember the advent of of plastic heads, Frank Urso cannot be forgotten. Frank and his coach, the great Bud Beardmore, dominated the game at the precise time the game began to evolve into the modern game we now know.
How could he not be listed? He changed the game at midfield. 4x All American at Maryland, and national champion. At the time, best shot in the game.
Frank Urso is the greatest player to ever play for Maryland. Urso helped redefine how to play the game, and it’s a shame that his legacy has been forgotten by today’s younger players.
23 Jordan Wolf
Best rattlers players I have ever seen. I’m your biggest fan.
24 Scott Bacigalupo
Best of the. Best!
25 Tim Nelson
Could feed the ball like no other
Tim Nelson, Syracuse lax, 3 time NCAA attackman of the year, Hall of Famer from Yorktown, NY
Best Lacrosse Players of All Time
Lacrosse is not a game for the weak or unconditioned. Lacrosse is a game of high impact and endurance. The most popular version of the game, field lacrosse requires players to wear protective gear and be able to catch a ball on the end of a stick, as well as pass, and shoot goals. The coordination the game requires is an interesting cross between soccer and hockey (without the ice).
The women’s version is played indoors and does not allow any physical contact, while their male counterparts typically play on an outdoor field. There is also a mixed version of the game known as intercrosse.
The fundamental requirements of being competitive in lacrosse require players to be in peak mental and physical condition. Injuries in this sport can mean a lifetime of debilitating pain or even permanent changes.
In order to be considered one of the best of all time, a player must depend on their entire team. There is no way for an individual to rise to international fame and competition on their own. For this reason, you will find that sportsmanship is a priority for any player considered the best.
Here is a look at the best players in the game:
The undeniable best player that ever dawned a lacrosse jersey, Jimmy Lewis was inducted into the National Lacrosse Hall of Fame in 1981. Lewis gained his recognition playing for the US Navy Lacrosse team where he was named All-American three different times.
One of the biggest influencers of the game, Lewis, along with his brother John approached the manufacturers of the field lacrosse stick to help with the production of a stick that was better balanced and much smaller than sticks had been in the past.
One of the most dynamic players in the game, Mike Powel won fans all over the world by being a true competitor and part of a true team experience. Powell was also a showman, bringing a bit of fun to the game. Unlike many other players in the game, Powell did not go on to play much on the professional stage but made his mark in college where he developed moves that players are taught today.
Gary Gait is renowned for being one of the winningest players in the game. Gary was the face of lacrosse in the late 1980s. What made Gait unique in the sport was the way he engaged with his fans, making the sport morph into a more fan-friendly experience. If you ever followed the game, then an autograph from Gary Gait was a sought after prize. Gait went on to coach women’s lacrosse.
Unfortunately overshadowed by his brother Gary, Paul Gait is widely accepted as one of the best to ever play the game. Paul was named First Team All-American three times and help his team to three NCAA Championship. What Paul brought to the game was a unique ability to foresee the gameplay out before him and anticipate what the opponents would do. He will always have our respect for not allowing his brothers attention to tearing him down.
Jim Thorpe is one of the best athletes of all time. He played and dominated in multiple sports throughout his career. Thorpe may not have accumulated the college acclaim that many other players usually do, but his record-breaking play in high school cemented his place in the best of all time. Thorpe was truly a legend in the earliest days of the game and his status is still something many modern players aspire to copy.
Jim Brown, known mostly for his success in football, was the first All-American in lacrosse to score 43 goals in 10 games. Known for his prowess in multiple sports, lacrosse was close to Brown’s heart and was once believed to love lacrosse more than any other sport. With the physical strength and condition that lacrosse requires, it is no surprise that a dominant player would be successful in other sports.
Jason Coffman is one of those players that may not look the part of a best of player, but when you look at the numbers, you cannot help but be shocked. Coffman is without a doubt one of the best college lacrosse players of all time. Named All-American all four years in college, Coffman amassed 451 points and 202 assists!
We had to include Oren Lyons on this list. The best goalie to ever play the game, Lyons was playing lacrosse before most of the big names on this list were even born. In his 80s, Lyons was still accepting challenges from players of all ages and was able to stop the scores of players of all national skill levels and acclaim.
Lyons went on to be a spokesman and dedicated activist for Native American rights and decency. We tip our hats to Lyons for being, not only a great player but a great human being!
John Grant, Sr.
While many may expect to see the suffix Jr. on this list, we decided the honor should go to John Grant, Sr. Grant skill level in the game surpasses almost every player to ever attempt the game. Remember that John Grant, Jr. learned how to play from watching his dad, so who deserves the recognition?
One thing that must be attributed to Grant Sr. is his unique one-handed ability and overall ball control. A true legend of the game in all aspects from his own achievements and bringing another generation to the love of the game with his son John Grant, Jr.
Lacrosse is one of the most physically demanding sports in all the world. Known to provide some of the key players to some of the more well known and professional-stage sports such as in the National Football League. Lacrosse players spend their entire careers working to improve the understanding and recognition of the game, all while keeping their teammates and themselves safe.
5 Tips to Be a Better Lacrosse Player
It’s easy to lose sight of the little things in lacrosse amid all the instruction, practicing and games. But as Coach Gafner, lacrosse coach and author of CoachGafner.com, points out, sometimes those little things go a long way in making a better player. Here are five things Gafner thinks players need to consider as they work to improve their lacrosse performance:
As you enter this season you have to have the right attitude. You have to be willing to learn and ready to listen. If you have the right attitude, you will do a lot more of the small things without knowing it. I have one player on my team last year that had the best attitude. It took me over a year to realize that it was his attitude that was the reason for his improvement.
If you are willing to put in the hard work, then the results will show. A part of your work ethic is practicing the right way. You need to be aware of the time you have to get better and use it well. I understand you have a lot going on with your life, but when you make time to practice or have practice, use that time to the fullest.
Last year at the start of my season the guys on my team wanted to goof around a lot. I didn’t mind it sometimes. But they didn’t want to goof around during a drill or a time when we had to be productive. Some of the biggest improvers on my team last year were players that had a great work ethic. So, adjust your work ethic to make the most of this season.
Ability to Understand the Game
A problem with a lot of new teams or teams that aren’t on the east coast or teams that aren’t successful is they just don’t understand the game that well. Everyone that plays lacrosse should always be learning about the game.
That goes for coaches too. To understand it, you have to learn why teams do things. For a lot of newer and unsuccessful teams, they don’t understand the right way to play the game because they don’t have the talent or personality to play lacrosse the right way. So, the first thing to do to understand the game is to ask questions to other coaches or players.
After that, watch a lot of lacrosse games to analyze what the teams are doing and why. And if you do understand the game pretty well, you need to help your teammates get a better grasp.
This is another area that you can always improve your game by being a better communicator. It is easy to think for yourself, but to play team defense takes a lot of work and communication. This communication develops on the practice field and translates to the game field the better you are at it.
I also think you need to work on your communication with your coaches too. If you don’t understand something they want you to get, talk to them about it when they have free time. They will help, because they are teaching you something for a reason–which is to improve your game and help the team win.
If you communicate with your teammates off the field, your team will get better faster. Keep the communication lines open so that your teammates know they can call on you for help, too.
Don’t Take Things Personal
Trust me–a good coach should tell you things that are going to make you mad. But, do not take it personal. As a coach I do want the players to like me–that’s how I get them to push it when practice is rough. But some players need to hear things about their game.
For example, I always tell players to scoop a ground ball with two hands. We had a couple of kids I will yell at about this. I hope they didn’t take it personal. I was just trying to make them and the team better. This is a good thing to know: you kids might think us coaches are out to get you but we aren’t. We just want to help.
Try to improve in these five areas and I know your lacrosse game will improve greatly. But, you have to bring the same passion to these five tips, if you want them to work.

We are talking about football players who, with their performance, may interest fans of football simulators.
We are talking about football players who, with their performance, may interest fans of football simulators.
The middle of the season is approaching, which means the winter transfer window.Of course, professional clubs have a well-functioning selection service that works constantly.
But it happens that a team overpays for a football player who flashed in a certain period of time, but does not receive any dividends from this. This happened with Roma and Juan Iturbe. The Romans paid 25 million for the promising striker Verona, but it all boiled down to permanent leases and sales for 3.83 million to the club from the Mexican championship.

In response to such incidents, clubs often resort to alternative search options to screen potential newcomers on all fronts.A great service to the selection departments is provided by football simulators FIFA, PES, as well as a football manager simulator Football Manager. These games have a large database of almost all football players in the world with their possible progress.
Today we take a look at the top scorers in the lower leagues of the top 5 European Championships. To do this, we turn to the fresh football simulator FIFA 19. What if these players will be useful to big teams in the future, or you want to add them to your squad in the game?
- Played – 19 rounds;
- Leader – Norwich;
- Outsider – Ipswich.
Last season this league was very interesting for Russian football fans because of Leonid Slutsky, who worked at Hull City. It did not grow together, but the championship did not become less bright from this.
- Neil Mope (Brentford, 22) – 13 goals, 6 assists;
- Lewis Grabban (Nottingham Forest, 30) – 12 goals, 2 assists;
- Billy Sharp (Sheffield United, 32) – 10 goals.
Mope. Nice pupil arrived at Brentford in the summer of 2017. He has already surpassed the personal indicators of last season (12 + 5), which speaks of the undoubted progress of the player.
- In FIFA 19, Mope starts his journey with a total of 73. To buy the striker from Brentford will need at least 5.5 million euros. The strongest traits of the Frenchman are the choice of the attacking position (80), balance (79) and the completion of the attack (77). Personal indicators, coupled with age, make Mope the most promising of the three.
Grabban. Grabban scored 20 league goals last season with Sunderland and Aston Villa on loan. According to this indicator, he became the second league scorer. Hence the price of 6.8 million euros paid to Bournemouth for the purchase. This season, the striker is stable, in 18 matches he has already scored more than half of last year’s norm.
- In FIFA 19, the forward starting card comes with a score of 73.Grabban is especially good at overclocking (78), agility (77) and finishing attacks (76). Its cost is estimated there at 3.9 million euros, but it will not be possible to acquire a football player right away, since he only recently appeared in the team.
Sharp. The Englishman shares the third place in the list of scorers with Temu Pukki, Lukas Yutkevich and Tammy Abraham. But we single out Sharpe, because he reached 10 goals scored earlier than the others. The 32-year-old Englishman never grabbed stars from the sky, but always had good performance.He played 522 games in his professional career. On account of Sharpe 225 goals and 60 assists.
- As for the prospects in FIFA 19, they are far from the most promising. Football simulators are pretty tough on football players after 30 years. The starting card with an indicator of 71 will only fall further in its value. But the $ 1.9 million price tag makes Sharpe a great option if you’re starting out with a mid-to-underdog club in the simulator.
https: // twitter.com / SkyBet / status / 1060874674765262856
- Played – 15 rounds;
- Leader – Alcoron;
- Outsider – Gimnastic.
Two teams at once, which until recently made noise in the Champions League, left the elite of Spanish football at the end of last season. Diego Tristan and Roy Macay are no longer in Deportivo, and Ruud van Nistelrooy and Jeremy Tulalan are no longer helping Malaga. Both teams are in a desperate struggle to get back to the elite as soon as possible.
- Enric Gallego (Extremadura, 32) – 13 goals;
- Kike (Deportivo, 28) – 9 goals, 1 transfer;
- Ruben Castro (Las Palmas, 37 years old) – 8 goals, 1 transfer.
Gallego . The 32-year-old Spaniard is a real mystery. He has no experience of playing in the top division of Spain. The only famous club in which he played is Espanyol. But even here it is not so simple! Enric played for the second team of the Catalans, having nothing to do with the main team.Gallego’s Extremadura club is trying to gain a foothold in Segunda. At the moment, it is located on the fourth line from the end of the table. The team has 22 goals, 13 of which are scored by Gallego. Last season, the striker managed to hit 29 goals in 39 games.
- In the FIFA 19 simulator, they could not predict such a bright game of an unknown football player. He was awarded an overall score of 71, which will drop lower over time. The starting price of € 2.1 million seems overpriced for a player of this age, even with a 78 in the “end of attack” column.
Kike . Deportivo’s failure last season caused him to be relegated to Segunda. The club’s management took measures to return to the elite and bought Kike from another representative of the lower league – Osasuna – for 1.7 million euros. Not the most understandable move, considering that Kike scored five goals in 45 games last season. But in the 2018/19 season, he already has nine successful hits.
- It will not work to develop a football player in the simulator – his age is to blame.But the 72-point card in which the agility (80), the choice of the attacking position (79) and the reaction (77) for 3.2 million does not seem very expensive. Seasons 2-3 Kike will be able to benefit the team.
Castro . The Betis legend is living out his footballing age in the Canary Islands. 93 goals and 21 assists in the elite of Spanish football is an excellent indicator. The forward has always been aimed at the goal. It was this quality that allowed Castro to become the top scorer in the history of Betis.But age takes its toll. At the age of 37, it is difficult to claim the position of the main striker of the elite division team. Well, if you are not Arits Adurits, of course.
- All of Castro’s offensive stats are high. Especially agility (85), choosing an attacking position (83), completing attacks (81). If the Spaniard was 10 years younger, instead of an overall rating of 77, the number would be 82, and maybe 83. And the amount for the transfer would clearly not be 2.6 million euros.
- Played – 14 rounds;
- Leader – Hamburg;
- Outsider – Ingolstadt.
For a long time, Hamburg remained the last German team not to fall into the lower divisions. But lately, Hamburg has fought only for the right to remain in the elite, without claiming anything more. Last season, a significant event happened, and the team still flew to the second Bundesliga, taking Cologne with them.
Terodde .At the beginning of last season, Cologne was left without the top scorer Antonia Modest, who went to try his hand at the Chinese Championship. The weak play of the attacking line of the “goats” led to the fact that in the winter transfer window Terodde had to be bought from “Stuttgart”. This did not save the team from relegation, but already in the second Bundesliga the forward revealed himself: he has 17 goals in 13 matches. But here’s the bad luck – Modest returned to Cologne as a free agent. At first, the club earned almost 35 million from selling it, and then the Frenchman got him again for free.Difficult choice will now face the coaching staff of “Cologne”.
- Whatever you say, but personal indicators of Therodde are not bad: strength (84), completion of attacks and power of impact (79). € 7.5 million per player with a 76 total would be a great deal.
Clement . “Paderborn” just appeared in the second Bundesliga, it is unlikely that the team will be able to overcome it on the move and enter the elite. But Clement works for the good of the club anyway.They will be able to rise – well, no – then the team will be able to sell Clement more expensive due to his performance.
- In FIFA 19, the overall score of an attacking footballer is listed at 71. But the player’s age and his best indicators (agility – 83, balance – 82, accuracy – 78) give hope for further development and growth in value.
Hinterzer . For a long time “Bochum” did not visit the elite of Germany – they began to forget about this club. But the 27-year-old Austrian Hinterser is trying hard.
- As usual with the Austrians, he is good at playing on the second floor (75), strong (81) and knows how to complete attacks (77). The combination of these qualities suggests that the overall score should be higher than the 73 declared in FIFA 19.
Italy. Series B
- Played – 12 rounds;
- Leader – Palermo;
- Outsider – Livorno.
An interesting fight develops in the Italian Serie B. Palermo and Pescara look like favorites of this league, but there are other strong teams not far from them, including Dmitry Alenichev’s former club Perugia, now headed by Alessandro Nesta.But, as often happens in Italy, not everything is so bright with the goals scored here.
Donnarumma (and Gianluigi has nothing to do with it). The last time Brescia played in Serie A was in the 2010/11 season. For a long time, the team has been unable to break into the elite. One of the steps towards the return was the acquisition of Donnarumma from Empoli.
- This Italian is one of the strongest representatives of our rating in FIFA 19. His overall score (75) is inferior to Theodde from Cologne, but the three-year difference makes the Brescia player more promising.And such a set as the speed of jerks (86), acceleration (82), endurance (78) – will definitely make Donnarumma one of the key figures in most middle-level teams in the elite divisions.
Mancuso . A player bought by Juventus, but left on loan by the Turin grandee at his home club. The 26-year-old striker is trying to prove himself in Serie B matches, and Juventus knows how important this league is.The link to the lower division has not been forgotten by the most titled club in Italy.
- But Mancuso’s choice looks strange. The guy is 26 years old, he has good stamina in FIFA (89) and speed of jerks (83). But the rest of the footballer looks pretty mediocre, and a card with a face value of 70 confirms this. I doubt that we will see him at Juventus in an attacking link with Ronaldo.
Code . Together with the “witches” the Italian tried himself in Serie A last season.He liked it and wants to return.
- The main advantage of the player in the simulator is the completion of attacks (75). However, the rest of his performance is much lower, which makes the 30-year-old striker’s 71 card not the most interesting.
France. League 2
- Played – 15 rounds;
- Leader – Metz;
- Outsider – Nancy.
Ligue 2 is one of the most viewed European clubs by scouts. The French championship has always been famous for its young talents.It is often here that new stars are found not only with French passports.
- Gaetan Charbonnier (Brest, 29 years old) – 13 goals, 5 assists;
- Khabib Diallo (Metz, 23 years old) – 12 goals, 4 assists;
- Florian Eye (Clermont, 21) – 9 goals, 2 assists.
Charbonnier . After winning in League 1, Montpellier bought the player from Angers for 1.5 million euros. Charbonnier even played three UEFA Champions League games and scored a goal against Olympiacos, but was sold to Reims at the end of the season.Now the forward is dragging Brest into the elite. It must be admitted that he has great chances of success.
- Don’t expect a player to develop in FIFA. This should have been done before. Now his indicator is 72. He knows how to choose positions in the attack (76), how to complete them (75). Will be useful as a substitution forward in cup matches with weak teams. And the cost is not the highest – 3.1 million.
Diallo . The 23-year-old Senegalese is watched over by many clubs in the French elite division.
- Its starting price of 4.6 million seems ridiculous. Metz will not part with their “asset” in FIFA 19 for that kind of money. The score of 72 points is a great help for the young striker (strength – 81, heading – 78, completion – 75).
Ay . An even more “tidbit” is the Clermont forward. Behind him is the Auxerre academy, which means that the player is perfectly ready for adult football.But the striker has not been particularly visible anywhere, which is why the price tag for him is not so high.
- For 925 thousand euros it will be possible to get (have to bargain) a forward with a total of 66. Jerk speed – 82, acceleration – 79, strength – 74. No, Ay, obviously it will not stay at 66, given the age (21 years ). With a constant place at the base and regular individual training, the player’s card can be decently developed.

90,000 FIFA 21 player ratings, Ronaldo is a top shot, Holland is more powerful than Lukaku, and you already know the best
Can you guess everyone?
FIFA 21 will only be released on October 6, but EA Sports has already published a rating of the 100 strongest players in the new part.Let’s analyze the EA selection below, but first, try to guess the top 10 in our test.
From the tips – only the player’s position (be guided by our tags).
Direct link to test
1. Top-3 has changed for the first time since FIFA 16. Of course, Messi and Ronaldo remained in place, but Neymar was pushed aside by Robert Lewandowski. In FIFA 16, Luis Suarez was in third place.
2. Three new names in the top 10: Sadio Mane (28th in FIFA 20), Kylian Mbappe (11) and Robert Lewandowski (15).Eliminated Modric (became 29th), Ter Stegen (11) and Eden Hazard (22), who was generally on the cover of the last game.
3. Apparently, Mbappe will be the fastest player in the series this year. Last year, he shared the top spot with Adam Traore (both had 96), but the Spaniard did not make the top 100.
4. Liverpool have the most players in the top 10: Mane, Salah, Van Dyck. But the top 20 is dominated by Real Madrid: Kroos, Casemiro, Courtois, Benzema, Ramos. But none of them made the top ten.
5. The winner of the Champions League, Bayern, in the top 10 only Robert Lewandowski. The top 20 includes Neuer and Kimmich.
6. The top 100 has the most representatives from Barcelona and Liverpool – 10 people. City and Real have 9.
7. Everything is stable for the goalkeepers: Oblak, Ter Stegen and Alisson. But Neuer moved De Gea from 4th place. Courtois this time became the fifth.
8. Some surprising indicators are striking. For example, Cristiano Ronaldo beats the best in the top 100.How fair is this, given that the Portuguese in Serie A averaged 6.57 shots per game and, excluding penalties, scored 19 goals (0.61 per game)? De Bruyne has 86, but 3.19 shots per game and 12 goals in the Premier League.
9. There are also questions about the strength of the players. Could Casemiro (Physics 91) with a height of 184 and a weight of 84 be stronger than Koulibaly (195 cm, 89 kg)? And Holland, for example, turned out to be stronger than Romer Lukak. It is clear that the “physics” parameter includes 4 attributes (jump, endurance, strength and aggression), but even with this caveat, the superiority over Lukaku looks very strange.
Also surprised Ronaldo: for some reason he was not too hardy (84) and very weak (78).
Greenwood, Davis, Holland and 10 more players who will receive the fattest upgrade in FIFA 21
10. Indicator Weak Foot (weak leg) does not lend itself to logical explanations. For example, the developers honestly believe that Christian Eriksen (5 stars Weak Foot) plays with both feet better than Lionel Messi (4 stars Weak Foot). But what is there – absolutely one-legged Chiro Immobile (28 goals on the right and 2 goals on the left) has the same 4 stars.
11. If you didn’t know, then the figure models of football players are almost always the same. EA ranks them by height (High / Medium / Short) and muscle (Lean / Average / Stocky). But some have such unique constitutions that they have to be drawn separately. Messi, Ronaldo, Neymar and… Thibaut Courtois got unique figures in the top 20.
12. In the confrontation between Messi and Ronaldo, Leo won again: 93 against 92. If we compare all the parts of FIFA, then Messi will have 9 victories, and Ronaldo – 6.
Ronaldo or Messi – what do FIFA and PES think?
13.Final top 10. Do you agree? Whom to remove and who is missing – write in the comments.
FIFA 21. Ranking Top 10
1. Lionel Messi, Barcelona – 93.
2. Cristiano Ronaldo, Juventus – 92.
3. Robert Lewandowski, Bayern – 91.
4. Neymar, PSG – 91.
5. Kevin de Bruyne, Manchester City – 91.
6. Jan Oblak, Atlético – 91.
7. Marc-André ter Stegen, Barcelona – 90.
8. Virgil van Dijk, Liverpool – 90
9. Sadio Mane, Liverpool – 90.
10. Mohamed Salah, Liverpool – 90

90,000 how not to be lost with a weak club
Those who start playing in the single, coaching mode of FIFA 18, as a rule, are divided into two types: those who decide to start a career with a grand, and those who prefer to take on a simple club. and break through with him through the thorns to the stars.
With the first option, everything is clear – a lot of money, a powerful roster, but difficult tasks, an unforgiving leadership and fastidious fans who will hate you after the first lost derby. There is a beauty in starting with a weak club. Firstly, it will be enough for you not to be relegated to the lower division, for which, out of an average of thirty matches, it is enough to win at least ten times, which is quite achievable. Secondly, if you do not hit your face in the mud, then the fans will love you, and, most importantly, the leadership, who will not want to let you go, somewhere for promotion.However, such a romantic option has one serious drawback – a small budget, and as a result, a small, forced activity in the transfer market. Of course, you will be able to buy someone there, these will not be the stars of the first magnitude, but all the super-football players that you would like to play will be old and retire by the time you dig up the money. Therefore, in order to fully feed on the romance of some Barnet or Nottingham City, you need to adhere to a few simple but effective rules.
Rule 1. At the start, do not go to the market.
The first thing we do in FIFA 18 (besides turning off the music, of course) is trying to sell in career mode those guys who are over 35, 33, or even 30. What is the reason for this decision? The fact that while a football player is, so to speak, on the move, he can be sold, and even 100 thousand conventional monetary units, is a tangible help for a lower division club. On the one hand, it seems to be a pity to sell the veteran, but on the other hand, then we will simply lose money.And, since we have a business here, personal relationships will have to be set aside.
However, we still strongly advise not to sell anyone in the first transfer window, and also not to buy. And here’s why: right off the bat you simply won’t appreciate the value of this or that footballer. You can only get rid of those whose rating is below 60 points. But at the same time, be careful not to bring the squad to an incompleteness, when there is no one to go out on the field with anyone. It can often be the case that even the oldest player can be of great benefit.Much more than if you sold it outright. As for purchases, people often do the following: they sell several veterans in order to buy one young and promising striker with the proceeds. In general, this is correct, but it must be done in the second transfer window, which will open in winter. Then, firstly, you will simply save up money at the club’s box office, and secondly, you will be able to understand what arrangement you will play, who does not pull, and what position needs to be strengthened. Yes, it is not easy to resist the rapid exit to the football bazaar, but it is better to do just that, because the following happens very often: people invest all their money in a new purchase.Having been seduced by the high rating of a hypothetical newcomer, they promise him a salary that is many times higher than that of other team players, and also give in general serious money. As a result, nothing remains on the account, and as soon as the games begin, expenses begin, and as a result, after several warnings from the management, which requires that something be done to get out of the negative balance, you are fired, because you do not do anything. you can.
Most likely to fly out of work, the coach has in the first six months
Rule 2.Take no free agents.
In a weak club, it is better not to hire players with free agent status. The system, even in the first transfer window, will provide several dozen such players for signing. The beauty of them is that they are free, but not without drawbacks. The problem of free people is high wages for, in general, mediocre data. As a result, this most free athlete will pull out a decent amount from you in six months, and it is far from a fact that you can sell him well. Such players are bought poorly, and they are unlikely to be revealed properly in the club.However, this concerns only the first transfer window, and, so to speak, “system”, free. In the future, the skillful signature of footballers, with a vacated contract, may become the main source of income.
But, if there is no other choice, and it is necessary, for example, to close a hole in the position, then take a young one. Firstly, young people have more modest appetites than veterans, and secondly, young people will still grow professionally, at least somehow.
The same applies to those players who are simply rented out by clubs.Why give playing practice to someone else’s athlete who will play and will probably leave if he shows the class, especially since taking a weak player from a third-rate club is pointless, and taking a strong player from a prominent club is expensive, because there often even the youngest are awarded contracts with decent amounts, and for amounts less they will not go to play.
Rule 3. Leave agents to negotiate.
There is a major innovation in FIFA 18: the transfer negotiations began to be animated, arranging whole role-playing games between a football player, a representative of his club and you.It’s interesting at first, especially if you are signing some prominent player. But then it gets boring quickly. In addition, in the course of concluding a deal, you can go too far and ruin everything, or, on the contrary, not wanting to seem stingy, overpay more than you should and lose money. Fortunately, the game retains the good old system of instant agreements, which take place in an automatic mode, where all diplomatic work is placed on the shoulders of your functionaries. And, as practice shows, they do their job quite well.
In a poor club, the chances of being liked by fans are much higher.
Rule 4. Entrust the choice of players to agents.
Gone are the days when we could easily take and sort all the available footballers, say, by age, in order to then buy out all the most expensive in bulk, in order to get ourselves a TOP club in a couple of years. Now we need to work through special managers.
Managers, however, need to be hired. Of course, the more expensive it is, the better, but an average specialist will be enough for 3 stars.Moreover, you do not need to clog the entire shelf with them at once. It is enough to buy one, and work with him, sending him to different, from your point of view, promising countries.
Two goals should be singled out: young and promising, or those that would strengthen the composition. In the first case, these will be options for growth, in the second – strengthening here and now, perhaps without a chance to make money on resale. If you have already earned a lot of money, then set the task – to take only TOP performers.
Then, when the list is collected, open the description of each applicant, and see the scout’s notes.If in the footballer’s dossier there is a phrase like “There is something special in it” or something else, something promising, then you need to take just such guys. The more colorful the mark, the more profit you can then earn. It makes no sense to take players without additional scout marks.
After you have selected a player, send a scout to follow him. But remember that the scout has a lot of work, he is one, and there are many objects to track. In addition, he cannot burst and follow everyone at once.But, when the research is completed, you will be able to see the full set of characteristics and a more accurate price. Players put up for transfer right away (by the way, there is rarely something interesting there) do not need additional study.
Rule 5. Take only young people.
As mentioned earlier, a young club that is poorly financed should only hire young players. At the same time, you need to understand that if an 18-year-old and a 16-year-old are worth the same, then you need to take the second one. Yes, it is possible that he will later reach normal conditions, but his rating will be differently higher.Similarly, you need to understand that the closer the player is to the line of attack, the more expensive he is. Therefore, it is impossible to compare two peers of the same age, who stand differently, due to the fact that one is a striker and the other is a goalkeeper. Perhaps both of them will be great footballers.
In FIFA 18, a high-quality athlete already has an established dossier by the age of 18. If he is 20, and he is still promising, with a rating of, say, 75, then by the age of 25, the rating can rise, say, to 82, which is good, but not the ultimate dream.Ideally, if you want a TOP club for yourself, then 75 should be at 18 years old. If so, then you have a potential star in front of you. Such players should be taken, if only for the sake of reselling them in the future, earning tens of millions.
Veterans who are over 33 are better off getting rid of. If not immediately, then gradually
Rule 6. Catching free agents from TOP clubs.
But the most profitable option for making money is to endure a couple of years, when many footballers start to run out of contracts, and in the winter transfer window, start looking for those who have in the dossier that the contract expires in 6 months.You can enter into a dialogue with these guys, suggesting that he not renew his contract with the club, and go to you. If you see that the rating of a football player is high, then do not skimp on salaries, transferring the club’s budget towards salaries. This is the shortest and most effective way in a couple of years, with a budget of 20 million, to gain players for yourself, 100 million, if not more. The main thing is to remember that it is impossible to make such proposals endlessly. The offer limit is limited to pumping your own club and your scouts, so make offers wisely, taking only the best to you, and do not be sad if someone still refuses.
90,000 FIFA 20 Career Mode – Selection of Players, Talents to Level Up, Unknown Players
Every FIFA 20 fan chooses his own strategy of the game. Someone prefers already revealed, star players. From them you can recruit a cool team “for now” and win a lot of trophies. The path seems to be a win-win, but how cool is it to find a little-known, uncut nugget and turn it into a star!
Players revealed almost from scratch will not only help you assert yourself as a manager, but also come in handy in a career mode in any league, from lower to elite.The British portal Squawka has offered its version of the top 11 talents that can be properly pumped in FIFA 20. The rating was compiled without taking into account the players playing in the leading European championships: Spain, England, Germany, Italy, France, Portugal and the Netherlands.
Martin Vandevoordt (Genk, Belgium)
Initial rating: 63
Potential rating: 83
Cost: £ 800 thousand
The youngest goalkeeper made his debut this season Genk “in the Champions League against” Napoli “in the last round, when his team was already out of sight.Vandewardt conceded four goals, but no one will challenge his talent. Martin could potentially get a rating of 83, experts say.
Robert Gumniy (Lech, Poland)
Position: Right Back
Starting Rating: 70
Potential Rating: 84
Cost: £ 3.2m
This defender is in FIFA 20 career appears with an initial rating of 70 and good stamina, thanks to which it does not release the opponent’s attackers. Experts predict that the statistical characteristics of Gumnium will only grow.In life, Robert has gone through several youth teams in Poland, now he is the main right-back of the U19 team.
Zino Vanhoeusden (Standard, Belgium)
Starting rating: 74
Potential rating: 85
Cost: £ 9 million
The Standard is trying to hide his talent, but it will not be possible to do this for a long time. The 20-year-old Belgian has an excellent starting rating of 74 (with a defense skill of 75 and a physics score of 71).The potential of Vanhoeusden, whose contract belongs to Inter Milan, is rated 85 – it just needs to be revealed!
Neuen Perez (Famalican, Portugal)
Starting rating: 73
Potential rating: 84
Cost: £ 5.5 million
Owned by Atletico Madrid 19 -year-old Argentinian Perez has an excellent starting performance. Defensive skill (75), reaction (75) and tackles (75) make him a serious opponent for forwards.His maximum rating is estimated at 84 – it may seem a little to some, but for clubs not from the top leagues, he can become a real diamond.
Ayrton (Spartak, Russia)
Position: Left Back
Starting Rating: 73
Potential Ranking: 84
Cost: £ 5.5m
If you like bright attacking wingers , be sure to pay attention to the Brazilian Ayrton from Moscow “Spartak”. He has several strengths at once: endurance (89), speed (84), dribbling (77) and crossings (71).In the long term, the total skill can grow from 73 to 84.
Nicholas Dominguez (Velez Sarsfield, Argentina)
Position: central midfielder
Starting rating: 76
Potential rating: 88
Cost: £ 12 million
Borrowed by Argentine Velez from Bologna, 21-year-old Dominguez may become one of the best central midfielders in the FIFA 20 career mode, the authors of the rating predict. His starting point is 76, but Nicholas is a balanced player in every aspect.His key advantage is his endurance indicator of 93, as well as selection – 79. The passes are also worthy: 80 – short, 76 – long.
Cristian Ferreira (Nunez / River Plate Argentina)
Position: Center Midfielder
Starting Ranking: 71
Potential Ranking: 87
Cost: £ 4.5m
FIFA Fans 20 already accustomed to the fact that “River Plate” in the game is called “Nunes” – EA Sports simply does not have a license to use the name of the Argentine club.One of the most promising players on the team is 21-year-old Ferreira. Christian is predicted to become one of the best midfielders in Career Mode with an 87 rating.
Lewis Ferguson (Aberdeen, Scotland)
Position: Center Midfielder
Starting Rating: 69
Potential Rating: 84
Cost: £ 2 million
The Scottish Premier League may be hiding a few real nuggets, one of which is Ferguson.Its initial rating is 69, which explains the low price. But his key indicators (63 in tackling, 73 in short passes) can be a good help for any team.
Jeremy Doku (Anderlecht, Belgium)
Initial rating: 66
Potential rating: 86
Cost: £ 1.1 million
And again we will look in Belgium, where in the attack of “Anderlecht” a very promising Belgian boy is running. 17-year-old Doku has an initial rating of 66, but already boasts a speed of 88 and a balance of 87.Despite his small stature (about 171 cm), Doku received a rating of 88 for a jump, so he is also dangerous in the air. But his main advantage is the ability to grow into a star with a rating of 86.
Julian Alvarez (Nunez / River Plate, Argentina)
Starting rating: 68
Potential rating: 86
Cost : £ 2 million
Another representative of the mysterious Nunez, who on closer inspection turns out to be the familiar River Plate, is forward Julian Alvarez.His starting skill in his career is 68, and his completion skill (69) is not suitable for those who want everything at once. However, ball control (72) and balance (80) will certainly allow him to grow into a star at level 86.
Pedro de la Vega (Lanus, Argentina)
Initial Rating: 70
Potential Rating: 88
Cost: £ 3.3m
Another South American talent is 18-year-old forward De La Vega. His speed (86) and dribbling (77) will be important if you like to play wide.Another advantage of Pedro is that he is able to play on any flank. And all of these skills will only grow as he progresses to the 88 rating.
Call of Duty: Modern Warfare Player Rating
Since the release (March 10, 2020) of the Warzone Battle Royale, 60 million people have played the game in just two months, there are also suggestions that by today this number has increased to 80 million. World ratings speak about a stunning success Call of Duty: Modern Warfare has become the most popular game of this year, which managed to retain the audience for such a long period.Many players by this time had spent several hundred hours in the game and can rightly call themselves adepts and experts. But where to go when the game mechanics and meta are thoroughly studied, there is a style and a personal result? In this article, we will look at the most popular records in different disciplines, as well as fun, spectacular and challenging challenges.
Staginess and performance have always gone hand in hand, at least in the esports world. The most fertile soil for records today are the modes “solo against …”. Playing solo against teams not only improves your skill, but also allows you to get impressive numbers.
Current record holders:
|Mode||Record holder||Kill Count||Record date|
|Solo vs Solo||Recrent||43||7 July 2020|
|Solo vs Twos||FaZe Bloo||40||18 June 2020|
|Solo vs Threes||Recrent||58||10 July 2020|
|Solo vs Squads||ApeX Phanosy||53||16 May 2020|
On the part of the community, such indicators explain the weak “bot-lobbies” into which, according to various assumptions, strong players fall by using inexplicable algorithms.In reality, sometimes we can talk about inappropriate behavior of opponents in individual matches, but it was not from Activision that the effect of the “Handicap” system * was not indicated, and viewers and commentators on Twitch could not find an unambiguous pattern. In support of the record holders, we can say that talking about buy-matches in the context of a battle royale is, in principle, impossible, and the pro players themselves are (ex) representatives of various esports teams and have sufficient skill and training, and have not been caught cheating.
“Handicap” is a matchmaking system (creating a game lobby based on game statistics) officially patented by Activision, in which players who make donations get noticeably weaker opponents. On more than one occasion, Twitch players and viewers have seen the algorithm work to maintain “interest in the game” by creating unequal lobbies.
It may seem strange that the championship in group modes is not held by collaborations of solo champions, but this is so.Varzon can and shows itself as a good team game. The strong composition of which will be too tough even for pro-soloists
|Mode||Record holder||Kill Count||Record date|
|Duo (deuces)||ItsDerekMay, LIAM||76||14 July 2020|
|Trio (threes)||Metaphor, Frozone, Pieman||102||17 July 2020|
|Squads (fours) in the lobby 150 people||Vikkstar123, Cellium, ABeZy & Priestahh||138||23 May 2020|
|Duo vs Trio||UnRationaL, Reedr||75||14 May 2020|
|Duos vs Squads||KaizerFN, forpantheon||74||1 June 2020|
| Trio vs Squads
in the lobby 200 people
|Aydan, FaZe Swagg, NICKMERCS||108||5 July 2020|
As for the alternative development of skills, it is difficult to argue with the fact that not standard tactics and skills are able to compete with shooting, and Verdansk is a great training ground for imagination.The main goal for the next challenges will be to win, or to enter the TOP-5, there can be no clear boundaries for such fun. Here are some examples to ponder at your leisure.
- * 20 sniper rifle headshots and
- * victory with 1 or 2 kills (after the Gulag) in Solo mode
- * Kill opponents using only pistols, explosives and combat modifications (air strike and cluster)
- * shoot only in prone position
- * Finish the game in TOP 1 in 15 minutes
- * do not use automatic weapons
- * use only edged weapons and explosives
- * Beat and finish the game with any standard slot machine
- * Do not kill more than one enemy with the same weapon
- * take a position in the final circle with 4 scouting contracts and win
- * Kill 5 enemies while inside the helicopter
- * Win with a set of 2 sniper / infantry rifles
- * Finish KB with 100,000 $
- * only shoot from the hip (not using shotguns)
These are just a few examples of the most spectacular tests invented by subscribers, actually performed by players.In fact, this is not just fun, but a huge skill boost in terms of movement and feeling of character modeling, route selection, shooting, and more. Challenges in Varzona help not only to be convinced of their own solvency and how to have fun, but also to bring intellectual and physical play to a new level. Conquer the peaks and try new things, see you in the battle zone.

90,000 PVP (PVP) games online, list of free PVP games on PC (PC), best and new PVP games
Good day, everyone, today we will talk about PVP (PVP) games online.PvP stands for Player versus Player. In fact, the main task of PvP is to find out which of
players are cooler. This is the so-called “arrow” where everyone comes
look at others, and show yourself loved ones. Although still more than myself
show, since it is unlikely to remain intact at this kind of event
work out. The players just get together and hit each other.
A bit of history
Such kind of entertainment as PvP was born
quite a long time ago. Always and at all times people are at war with each other, are measured
forces, and it would be strange if this “tradition” did not move into the online world of MMORPG.Clarification
player-to-player relationships have become commonplace since graphical MUDs. Acquaintances
all adherents of full loot (all items are lost upon death) and permadeath (upon killing, the player loses a character) go exactly
Types of PvP
and new PVP MMORPG games give
the ability to kill the enemy in a variety of ways. Most developers
prefer the so-called FFA PvP system – kill
almost anyone can. This approach teaches players to join forces, because
everyone understands that one is not a warrior in the field.Over time, players unite in
guilds, alliances. Examples of games that use this approach are Lineage 2
and Age of Conan: Unchained.
Alternative option – factional PvP. The difference
factional PvP in that players are initially divided into several
warring factions. This approach makes the game a little easier, as “in the rear”
your faction need not be afraid of being killed. The only drawback of this
option is the impossibility of changing sides – in most games is prohibited
going over to the side of the enemy.
Naturally, by just battles against each other
the gameplay is not complete. Mostly in every PvP game
there is the so-called control of the territory or objects. In Lineage 2
guilds are fighting for castles that give them advantages. In Wahammer online, battles are conducted almost without stopping, until
one of the capitals will not fall. In Guild Wars 2, representatives of three servers are fighting at the same time –
detachments capture key points, build assault vehicles, attack caravans and
trying to take control of the central locking system.
Another option is competitive PvP. Here’s the game
conducted on small maps. The main tasks of the teams are to complete tasks or
just interrupt each other. The rules are usually set the same as in
multiplayer of regular games – complete a task, capture a checkpoint and
etc. If the game takes place in a competitive mode, it is very important to remember about
your playmates. Everything should be as coordinated as possible, because the balance
players are usually perfect, which means the winner will be the one who wisely plans the attack
The most advanced form of PvP is considered
competition with its own rating and prizes. World of Warcraft is a prime example.
In addition to civilized forms, PvP exists
the so-called gank. Gank is done by people who do not consider it necessary
follow the fair rules of the game. For example, a player can simply jump out of cover,
attack the weaker character, kill him and go back to cover. Such
is practiced quite often, so that almost every player has encountered
something similar.Although this game is not entirely fair, the developers are in no hurry
take any measures for now, but I would like to.
free PVP games for PC (PC) includes games such as: Sphere 3, Wind of Luck: Arena, Warface, War of Vikings and others.
