    Could mean the end for JLeague in future FIFAs

    Perhaps, but I think with the emergence of Japanese talents playing in Europe it wouldn't be that much of a let down.

    As long as I'm not playing Hasebe at CB again I'll be happy enough.

    I don't know if it's just me, but I don't particularly like playing with big name foreign talents that play in the JLeague anyway.

    Question as It almost feels wrong ... I only play with an A-League side - as a result I have a fair amount of coins With IFs being so low. Tempted to nab a Del Piero for my team as he’s the only icon who’s played in the A-League. I need someone to talk me into it haha

    Do it. I did something sort of similar with prime Vieri in my Australian squad because he grew up in Australia

    Ended up doing this for my socceroos side rather than Del Piero for my A-League one.

    Vieri half the price of Del Piero and maybe because he’s my first 90 player but wow! Absolute gun

    What a surprise! Absolutely deserved on his form but he didn't hit the usual criteria last week.

    yeah he didn't have any goal or assist right? So just a really good defensive performance??

    Ah the Japanese team have disbanded. I was getting frustrated at the lack of new additions after 100 games!

    Well he has been performing to a high standard for months now. His IG is up to 79, his best rating ever. He has literally been "inform".

    I'm thinking this Hasebe card is basically in TOTW because he won't be in TOTS as a result.

    On the topic of Hasebe, I tried him for a few games in WL and he's just not good enough at CB. I've ended up swapping him in for Oshima in CM when he gets low on stamina.

    However, there's no reason why he couldn't still get a TOTS.

    Frankfurt have had an incredible season and he's been at the heart of the defence. Out for a period, but I don't think that would make much of a difference.

    My only issue is if he does get it, it'll be as a CB. Even as a TOTS CB, I think Tomiyasu will still be more effective in that position.

    CDM would be great, but he's rarely played there this year.

    Just make a 5 at the back and switch to 4 in game with Hasebe pushed into midfield.

    I've had a renewed interest in weekend league again. I figured I'd try a full Japanese team again after Hasebe got a IF this week.

    He's not turned out too well in CB, but does a great job when replacing Oshima in CM later in games.

    Playing with this.

    I'm 11-8, which I don't consider being too bad with the team I'm playing with. Scored some amazing goals as well. This one with Nakajima is probably my fave.



    Also got this one with Sakai of all people making a lung bursting run and finishing like an icon... De Gea didn't even move!



    If I can get any form of Gold I'll be a happy boy.

    My Japan plus base Hierro and De Gea and just 15 points from division 3.

    Btw, POTY items for English leagues up as weekly challenges. As they ignored Asia, I'm not going to buy this game next year new. I'm just going to grab a pre owned copy. The absolute embarrassment of made up cards with high ratings this what mean EA will never get a penny from me.

    Good stuff mate. In my last weekend league with my Japan squad I ran out 17/11. It's a serious grind but Nakajima plays well beyond his rating and Tomiyasu has everyone under control.

    Nakajima is just brilliant, well above 81. I think Inui is a better dribbler but Nakajima's shooting is unreal. I've scored 180 goals in 400 from mainly LM.

    He's unbelievable. I played 100 games with my Japanese team, he had 101 goals. Played him as a lone striker in a 4 4 1 1.

    I'm still running him in my hybrid team arm on the left of a 4 4 1 1. He's amazing.

    With TOTS due, do we have any hopes or predictions? For me it depends if they do it FIFA 17 style or 18. 18 felt much smaller with a huge focus on big leagues. 17 had things like a joint Dutch/Belgian squad for example.

    I'm hoping for..

    Kamada (Pro League)
    Hasebe (Bundesliga but feel recent totw means won't happen)
    Honda (nailed on this I think)
    Tomiyasu (Pro League. Probably likely too)
    Ienaga (J 18 POTY)

    Jo (J1 top scorer 18)

    I also feel Nakajima would have had a chance had he not gone to Dubai. :(

    He actually plays in Doha, Qatar for Al-Duhail, not in Dubai, UAE

    Sorry Ryno, you're absolutely right. Regardless, I hope we see him back in summer.

    I got him in my WL picks.

    He is actually amazing, I've put him between a trio of icons just to try him in weekend league. Card should not be rated 82 with those stats!

    Playing him in this team.

    PyAlWww.jpg

    Didn't start out with him in the squad, but I got to gold 3 pretty early for me so I thought I'd try him after he came off the bench and scored 2 goals in 8 minutes.

    He's on 8 goals in 4 games right now, he's something else.

    Gotta love the dynamic pic as well.

    @CosmicDance always has the best teams

    Did the bronze weekly obj alternating between an all Japanese jleague side and US side

    One match was full Japanese Jleague against all Chinese CSL team. Fun stuff!

    Kanamori MVP with that fire pace. I used a packed only bronze team

    Thanks man, I try :)

    Finished on 19 wins.. Lost my last game to get to gold 1 :( Still nice to see myself in top 100 rest of the world for the time being.

    Will be partaking in the Bronze objective though! If only the boy Nakagawa was still bronze. I used to play those two upfront in previous FIFA's.

    Still, plenty of choice with the Japanese boys, I'll get on it.

    Since hitting division 3 with my Japan and Hierro/Dr He's I've been in free fall, 250 points lost.

    Did score this cracker though.
