I think that instead of EA just focusing on Ultimate Team they should bring in a ‘Co Op Career Mode’ where you and a friend can play together.
Like NBA 2k18 ‘ Pro AM ‘ one player will start the Career then invite a friend to it and the player who started it will be in charge of the difficulty you play against computers and the team you both start of at. This is player Career btw. When wanting to play a game you both go onto Co Op Career Mode and press the play match and you will then enter your league or cup game or whatever. It might take EA a lot to do this but whenever wanting to go on loan you can go on loan to a seperate team and proceed there and then when the season ends meet your friend back at your home club or if you both go on loan , you can both go back. Apart from this feature, Career Mode would have all the other features it normally has .
If EA could do something like this , that would be amazing.
