    First game online with my MLS players, @Chubbs would be proud:

    That back line was so good (even though I conceded 2 goals), they're all 6'4"+ with high strength. I think that's the way to go with CBs this year.

    Onyewu pace of 2 isn't a problem?
  • Yeah do people not just sprint down you on the wings? That’s whats stopping me from running 3atb

    This was all online seasons and about 3-4 games of Squad Battles on World Class

    That's pretty good. 4321? Or using him at striker? His card looks pretty good.

    I had him at LW in 433 but he wasn't effective he's been amazing as a ST though

    Only played 3 games with him. He's definitely slow, but he's so massive and strong (6'5" with 99 strength), he seems to win every tackle and every air ball for me.

    As long as your positioning is good, he's an elite silver CB. If you get caught out of position, he's useless. If I concede a goal with him, it's usually because of a mistake that I made.

    Need opinions. I want to use Asad at cm in one of the two squads I rotate. That would involve either dropping Feilhaber all together (whom I really like) or keep Feilhaber and drop Dempsey from the cam spot and moving Almiron to cam, although his 2 star weak foot is a little worrisome in that spot, which Dempsey betters him in but Almiron has that sweet pace. What do you guys suggest?

    Use the players you like! I'd suggest playing Asad and Feilhaber and then Almirón ar CAM. Just try not to shoot as much on his weak side, but he should still be a great passer there. If u notice his WF is getting you in trouble, swap Dempsey back in. Or Feilhaber at CAM and Almiron at CM?

    So I played like 3 games online. All have been for the sake of the daily. First game i got wrecked cause it was with a literally starter squad. Second I drew with a team with some West Ham peeps and Hart on goal. 3rd i used with my MLS squad. I was losing 5-0 in half time vs a la liga team (all best players except Messi, Suarez, Ronaldo. So it had Marcelo, Bale, Benzema etc. I came back with 1 goal from Kaka, 2 from Dwyer, 1 from Alsonso, 1 from Almiron.
    The guy must have been mad that I came back at the 90th with a driven shot.

    It's great. I mean I obviously could be using a better team but the affordability as a starter squad plus seeing real faces of favorite local league players is always cool and surprisingly some of them can be competitive. Specially now that we have like 5 decent CB

    Apparently no Brooks in the OTWs, unfortunate.

    EA are so incompetent that either they:
    • picked Jeffrey Bruma instead of Bruma the LM becuase why not
    • picked Jeffrey Bruma (on Wolfsburg) instead of the other $20 million CB transfer on Wolfsburg.

    DK6CnLNV4AANZMO.jpg:large

    Either way, Jeffrey Bruma has been at Wolfsburg for two seasons already.

    I like Dempsey too his attributes are great aside from the pace at CAM. But I think I'm gonna drop Deuce and go with Almiron at cam. Feilhaber to me is a better cm than Dempsey is a cam this year

    Not getting Mane and Brooks not being a OTW was a buzzkill.

    Qazaishvili, aka Vako, looks like quite the decent player actually. 4* SM + 5* WF. 81 long shooting, 79 short passing and curve. but 57 stamina... :(

    Still an odd mistake, like one guy just yelled over to the other guy "hey just put Bruma in there" and no one thought to double-check it.

    Just reinforces the idea that very little (or zero) though are put into these kinds of teams in FUT, it's just a random blob of 23 names they could think of.

    Envisioning two guys at EA doing this was pretty funny.

    There were moments in the NHL series years ago where this was fitting to a tee.

    Dembele left out as well. Maybe they were excluded because they’re injured.

    IF Martinez is so good, I just managed to pick a fresh one up for 12750 coins. If you haven't already, get him before his price goes up, as he will be rare.
