"...this player has scored quite a few from this kind of distances."

Really? Pretty much sums up EA Sports.

    EA could easily add new commentary lines throughout the season to reflect how players are doing IRL etc. But they're just too lazy and we get a few new lines every other year if we're lucky.

    My favourite is the commentary line about it going against the script.

    They're actually openly laughing at us while we fill their pockets

    Did you ever hear the way the commentators pronounced players names? After a few times, it really gets on your nerves, ten times after that, I swear I could have ripped my ears out, it's so atrocious......one comes to mind...Benega....omg terrible

    I turned the commentary off for the first time last week. Best decision ever.

    Was really rubbing salt in the wounds when the game would rob you of a certain goal in typical FIFA fashion only for the commentary to chip in with a "LOOK ALONG THE LIIIIIIINE" or some other generic nonsense you have heard 1000000000 times.

    Also give 0 ❤️❤️❤️❤️ about who's birthday it is.

    I like it when they call Federico Valverde from Real Madrid Trembly 90% of the time, one in a blue moon they get it right and say Valverde
    Apart from that it's not actually that bad

    I don't know the English commentary's name, but he basically says all the name the way they should be pronounced. Bruno fernandes is pronounced that way in Portugal, same as Ruud Gullit pronounced as Ruud GGGGULLIT and not Hullit.

    I think the way they pronounce De Bruyne has to be up there with the worst.

    Or, "He passed it straight to him!" Yep, he sure did. A simple pass to your receiving player standing 5 feet away and the A.I sends the ball at a 45 degree angle to an opposing player instead.

    Thanks for your contribution, EA Fan boy.

    Just because someone disagrees with you, it doesn't make them an EA fan boy, it's such a lazy insult.

    Turn the music and the commentary off the day the game comes out. Either play with my own music on, a podcast or friends in a party. The playlists have slowly become worse and worse and the commentary just adds to making the game more frustrating to play.

    Used to be able to change commentary language in the game settings tab on the main menu, like the one before FUT lol

    It’s actually “these kinds of distances”, so it’s grammatically sound.

    But I agree that the commentary is awful. Derek Rae and Lee Dixon say the most pointless things, in the most annoying ways.

    I get really annoyed when Lee Dixon makes a smarmy comment if I attempt a chip.

    The same Lee Dixon responsible for this:
