    Hey! The OP offends me @Chance

    Think if any expansion will win it would definitely be ATL, was cute reading though.

    Sucks he won't even get a January upgrade cause he isn't playing. Gotta wait a year for a better version more than likely. Dang.

    So MLS confuses me. It reads that the draft is 5 rounds but each team only gets one pick?? Anyone care to clarify?

    With the new ratings the way they are, how many more golds do you think MLS will get? Will we lose some of the great silvers, or will we gain even more with a few guys in the 68 to 70 range getting a boost?

    Idk. Kind of bummed Kljestan isn't a 75 but at least he's a 74 rare. Looks good regardless.

    Also, nice to see Johnsons actually got a decent shot this year. Him and an 81 Howard were nice surprises.
  • Supposedly this image was taken today at Starfire. It was an off day for the club but its quite nornal for those returning from injury to work on off days.

    We only get one pick per round AKA we can get at most 5 players from the expansion draft. I have no idea how we'll going to build our rosters out now.

    Good to see him back, hopefully healthy and good to go for the Hex.

    Good touch and shot by Agudelo. Nice to see him back at it.

    One of the most maddening players. May have more raw talent than any striker in the pool but has never put it altogether. I wonder if the work permit issue really hurt him psychologically. I know it would do that for me.

    Look forward for that gold Kevin Molino card :p

    Idk if we're going to gain that many golds this year. Not a lot of 73-74 players will be getting upgrades, many of them in our league are older and will stay put or get downgraded like Zusi. I'd be highly surprised if they made Molino gold. It would be deserved, but I don't see it happening.

    Well EA doesn't rate MLS too well so yeah I agree.

    If Molino is 73-74 I'm good with that. He's going to have solid stats regardless. Hoping Yedlin has a boost in defense and Ream and/or Williams are rare.

    A rare Williams would be wonderful. i really hope Laba is rare this year too.

    Never understood the rarity concern. I don't care if they're rare, nonrare, or whatever. If they have good stats and fill a need in my team, I'll use them. Most of the good nonrare players will get IFs anyway. Look at Kamara and Feilhaber.

    I refuse to use non rares. They are so ugly and ruin the look of a team.

    This for the most part. I mean Benny and Bedoya were good this past year but they were so hideous looking.

    I'm really going to try to get over this in the coming year. Ozzie and Lodeiro being nonrare will make it necessary anyway. But honestly it's dumb, so many great guys I don't use because they're 74 rated and nonrare, and I'll pay 5x the coins for a guy who's barely better because he's shiny.

    Y'all are some hipsters. Worried about how a card looks when we're already at a disadvantage for using MLS/US cards in the first place. We need all the help we can get.

    Shiny or not matters none to the OG FUT Founders! As mentioned:
    we're already at a disadvantage for using MLS/US cards in the first place. We need all the help we can get.

    You have to take a certain pride in those US nationals that are non rare and still put in down...

    my all time fav was Herc from FUT13:

    2016_09_14_095252.jpg

    check his Futhead reviews: http://www.futhead.com/13/players/1778/herculez-gomez/

    "Imo he should be a gold, like 77 or 76 rated"

    "5* weak foot, 92 jumping, 75 finishing and pace? Hidden Gem."

    Don't sleep!
