Ok, this has been bugging me for quite a while now, as some people seem to be confused by how the star rating system works, so I will try and explain it to help people understand.
Firstly, a players star rating has NOTHING to do with their overall CA. There is no such thing as a 4-star player for example.
Rather, a players star rating is based in relation to the other players in your team. For example,
John Flanagan of Liverpool. As manager of Liverpool he starts out with just one star. However, if you are a league 1 side and you get him on loan however, its is most likely he will be a 2-3 star player. This is because the standard of players at Liverpool are much higher than a league 1 team.
Players star ratings will rise and fall depending on the players at your squad. I saw a thread saying Walcott is only 2.5 stars. Im not sure how many he has last year (I think 3-3.5?) but I believe his stats have been upped slightly (only had a quick glance however). The reason he is now only a 2.5 star though, is because Arsenal brought in the world class Ozil, who puts the standard of player at Arsenal much higher.
Hopefully I have explained myself well so you all understand!
