We are aware of an issue with FUT Crashing for Virgin media users & we are working on this. Apologies for the inconvenience this is causing. We have a thread discussing it here.

    I was hoping he'd come to Chicago, but I should have known better. We never win the race to sign in demand players.

    Did the rumor about chicharito and Chicago fizzle out? I think hed do well in mls.

    I think so. I haven't heard any rumors about him coming lately, or anyone for that matter. We get one chance to make a first impression on Chicago, and so far, it's looking like our first season is going to be a disaster.

    Hopefully they have some big signings to announce when the January transfer window opens.

    I'm hoping Seattle do something with their open dp slot!

    Gotta say I love being able to work MLS guys into two different teams and then rotate. Let's me make use of more good attackers that we have without forcing weird formations or positions.

    Got POTM Josef up top in one team with SBC Villalba on the right and SBC Acosta at CAM (SBC Nakajima on the left)

    Got Scream Ibra up top in the other team with SBC Acosta at CAM again (Moments Di María on the left and soon to be Storyline Gelson Martins on the right)

    Saw a FUTmas Pavon as one of the predictions for one site. Could make for some fun teams with Ibra.

    Honestly. I'm having so much fun and success with my MLS attack it's kind of crazy. I have the team infrastructure to use more meta cards but haven't really needed them. Would love for that pavon to be left wing

    Welcome to the league Charlotte!

    Winter transfers are slow going, hope there are some really exciting signings that come about after new years.

    I feel like Miami might grab some headlines during January. Seattle have open dp slot and need a top tier defender and winger.

    Lafc continue to build the best young team we ve seen.

    LGP leaving is making me sad. Was such a good player. Certainly prone to mental lapses but he was fun to watch. Going to have a huge hole without him and Parky

    Never got POTY Vela or any other special cards for that matter. Nothing really to discuss. Havent turned on FIFA in over a month now.

    Same boat here. Burnt myself out already with how much a chore the game is.

    Already planning my travels for the year though for when the season starts. Looking to go to some NISA/USL League One matches as soon as the schedules are released

    When I was living in Seattle I used to go to Puma (usl 2 I think?) games. Was a lot of fun, was really impressed with the quality of play at that low tier. I really miss living in a town with plenty of live soccer to see.

    California kinda sucks for catching games if you're not near la.

    All pro sports teams in the soccer pyramid have a requirement of being located near an airport, so Im not too worried about having to travel to somewhere like LA and drive to San Jose or something crazy. Should be a fun 2020

    For those that did SBC Schweinsteiger the first time around. Best Chem style for a box to box CM? What about if I use him in a 2 CDM formation?

    Hawk for box to box (he gets in nice shooting positions) and Shadow for CDM (pace boost is very noticeable and he puts in solid tackles)

    Avaya stadium is right next to the airport in San Jose. La to San Jose is about 6.5 hours by car without traffic... 40 min flight lol.

    My bucket list is Kansas city, Atlanta, salt lake, and portland. Miami and Orlando could be chill too. So many great venues now!

    San Jose is 45min from my house - it's crazy I haven't gone yet...

    Well, I'm feeling a bit guilty right now.... I just sold my scream zlatan 😭

    Been playing this mls squad for months and want to change it up to a ligue 1 squad - been using 83 Ben yedder and am blown away at how good he is. I need his otw and had to raise some coins.

    Futmas renato Sanchez seals the deal - he is excellent. Storyline gelson Martin's is great too....

    Luckily I can always get back the zlatan, even if he is tainted by other players stats lol.

    Lol I actually just sold my Scream Zlatan a few days ago too. But that's because I was moving Acosta to CF in a 433(5). (I used to have Acosta as a CM, but I felt like I was forcing it there. the team works much better now with Schweiny, Ballack, and Battaglia as CMs.) That being said, the only MLS reps in this squad are Acosta and Scwheiny (and then Villalba, Josef, and Schweiny in my other sqaud I rotate with).

    I really enjoy Storyline Gelson.

    It made sense to sell him while he was up 50k with the re issue of schweinsteiger.

    The next zlatan card will be serie a. No way we don't see one last zlatan card before he retires.

    I'm still using Josef villalba and schweiny as well. Martinez just has been unreplaceable for me in my starting lineup for some reason. Whenever I put mbappe or someone else in my team the only thing I've really benefited from was the additional skill moves. His production has just continued to be insane for me

    Oh, that place has been on my bucket list for years. All the more reason to go now.

    Interested to see how their fanbase is. As a musician of 30 years and a rabid football fan, I have to get there this summer.

    Haven’t been in here for a while since we got exiled over here. Still following the league as ever and got round to do Schweiny second time round as I didn’t have the coins first time round.

    Once I’m done with online objectives and sold up the players bought for those I’m gonna start on Acosta and Villalba
