    I love how cheap MLS players are every year, just picked up Giovinco and the Dos Santos brothers for a little over 2k.

    Dang, I wanted IF Piatti, but now Mullins is guaranteed a slot. Doubt they'll give us two IFs.

    Also Higuain had 3 assists. Would be a decent card, but he wont get one.

    Think i'm settles on a 3-5-2 for my MLS side. Whom would you guys pick as your two central CMs? I wanna experiment with higher aggresiom CMs to win balls better, so was thinking maybe Jermaime Jones and Ring.

    Way to go Mullins. The game hasnt officially started until an American captures an IF.

    I'm enjoying it. The defending and goalkeeping AI definitely need tweaking but the game is good overall

    Passing is **** terrible as well. You can bypass the whole midfield with one driven pass. It's impossible to mark players because no matter what you can't intercept ****

    Passing is absolutely miserable. Midfielders feel so useless. Why even have a CDM when they bullet pass and you are walking in mud for 5 seconds while they run on by.

    Alonso, Ring, Bradley, Dzemaili, JDS, McCarty, Kljestan, there's so many good central options. I'm probably gonna run Alonso/JDS in one team and Bradley/Dzemaili in the other. Ring my midfield sub.

    Oh yeah Dzemaili looks great for a NIF MLS midfelder, esp his shooting.

    Watching the Newcastle game just to feel a little better about the US RB position :D

    Fifa 18 is a poor excuse for a game, EA should be ashamed for putting this piece of **** out. Every shot is a **** rocket into the top corner, every player in the game can score from 30 yards out, defending and goalkeeping is woeful. It's like they took every thing that was wrong with the past 5 fifas and combined it into one mega **** game

    @RC are you sure you don't wanna switch to being an LAFC supporter?

    Atlanta robbed on a no call penalty and then Villalba masses one top right corner. What a hit.

    Almiron pulled up and subbed out with a hamstring injury. If he is out long at all our shot for a first round bye is gone.

    The season is basically over for us so I don't mind seeing how he does at RB. Ended up not looking any worse than Diallo or Smith. Really miss DeLaGarza... :(.

    Nah. I'll probably end up supporting LAFC because I like to support all local clubs (except Chivas USA :s), but they'll ALWAYS be second to LA Galaxy.
