    FIFA

    I thought we may as well just have one big FIFA thread as there's probably not enough interest to have a new thread every year.

    I've barely touched UT this year and instead I've poured all my time into a career with Swindon. Currently in my sixth year and my second in the Premier League. Barely avoided relegation last year and it was the most fun I've had with FIFA in a long time.

    I've concentrated a lot on youth and I've grabbed some young free agents along the way to help with the budget. I also cheated a tad in the early years and bought two of those scouted players from the EA catalogue. Sold one a few seasons ago and used the cash to upgrade my scout, the other was used in a player swap last season.

    My team as of November 2021 -

    * = youth academy
    ** =free agent/regen

    ----------------- T. Abraham (83)
    ----------------- T. Ince (76)
    J. Soria* (78) - O. Kemen (78) - A. Dozzell (75) - P. Roberts (79)
    D. Shaw* (73) - K. Bartley (75) - R. Oxford (78) - T. Losada* (77)
    ----------------- M. van der Hart (75)

    Decentish reserves of -
    J. Ruddy (GK, 73) - C. Humphreys-Grant (CB, 74) - C. Quinteros** (RB, 75) - A. Rizzo** (CM, 75) - C. Colkett (CM, 73) - L. Thompson (CM, 74) - L. Alexander* (CM, 71) - M. Thomas* (LM, 73) - C. Watson* (RM, 71) - A. Ros Rios* (AM, 71) - O. Olsson** (ST, 77) - J. Maclaren (ST, 76)

    Abraham and van der Hart both came over via pre-contracts in the most recent off season. I still have a decent budget that will go towards a few more pre-contracts in January. Sold a regen LB for 20 mill recently which funded the moves for Roberts and Kemen.

    The best youngster of the lot is Olsson. 20 years old, 5'7 (and from Sweden, Ibra regen?). 99 acceleration, 99 sprint, 92 agility, 96 balance, 87 ball control, 90 dribble, 84 long shots only 64 finishing but I don't really notice it.

    The other exciting prospect is Rizzo, overall of 75 at 19 years old. 99 ball control, 99 dribble, 82 finishing, 84 short pass, 99 long shots. Only trouble is his physical stats are yuck. Acceleration and sprint are okay at 75 and 72 but stamina at 57 and strength at 41

    Currently sitting 14th halfway through November. I'm also scraping by in the Europa League after having a dream run in the EFL Cup last season. I'll hopefully snag a spot in the knockout stages but doubt I'll do much damage at all

    Fifa18 is fucking shite. How can you make a game that much worse from the previous version.

    yeah_nah Had an update last night that says they've changed keeper actions in certain scenarios, lowered shot accuracy and fixed the net animation (which was fucking annoying tbh)
