According to what I read, Sherwood will play Micah Richards at centre back. Can you imagine this OP double link in the early days of FUT16? :anguished:

Okore is 75 in the latest updates. The saving grace though is that EA will probably keep Richards as a RB for now.

    Hopefully Richards does play at CB! People know him for how OP he has been in FIFA before, but in real life he is an actually good defender, great tackler, fast, strong & hard-worker! I will miss him at City!

    I always thought he was better as a centre back. Too clumsy on the ball to play full back. At centre back his physicality and aerial prowess shone through. Him and Okore would be a pretty beast partnership, in real life I mean, not just Fifa.

    It'll be nice when Villa realise that he's an awful centre back

    If he plays at CB in August and the start of September they should switch him.

    Sometimes when it's been publicised where he will play they make the player that position anyway. I'm struggling to think of an example but I'm sure it's happened.

    Okore is a shocking defender

    Will be massively surprised if he is bumped up to gold

    Richards will be a silver as will Okore

    As I said, I looked on SoFifa and he is a 75 at the moment. So he would be a gold. Richards is also rated 75 right now, but that's as a right back, and surely as a centre back his rating will be at least as good if not better, because of his strength and aerial ability.

    1. According to SoFifa, they are both rated 75 at the moment.
    2. Even if they were both silver, that's a pretty immense silver CB partnership then. Just a lot more expensive.

    And sometimes they'll announce that a player will definitely be playing LW because Messi is their CF, and they'll still release him as a ST anyway.

    Is Vlaar not good anymore?

    Vlaar's contract is up at the end of the month. Though you would think he'd have left by now if there was interest from anyone bigger than Villa.

    He's a free agent now.

    Cheaper if price ranges are still in effect

    Yeah, so he may well get a downgrade but if they make him CB he could still be 76 or something.
