I guess it's just stuff to get used to, still probably gonna buy the new game.
No way <roll>
I dunno

I preordered it for download. Ready to play next Thursday! I loved the demo, much closer to real football than any previous one I remember

Size might be something to do with frostbite. All of the bf games were huge as well.

Seems like an unnecessary feature to have in a football game.

Anyone found any good offers for buying the game?

I must admit I seem to be getting a lot of injuries now. Mostly 4 week minor injuries.

I take the Rafa approach, squad rotation!

Signed Thorgan Hazard from Monchengladbach for £19m and sold Shelvey to Fiorentina for £15m.

Any recommendations for a decent cm to sign?

Yeah he was decent for me but £15m was too good to turn down. Valencia have also offered £15m for Mitrovic which I'm tempted by.

Is sigurdson a CAM tho?

He is, but it hardly matters. He can play anywhere by CDM really.

The rotation with the keeper on Journey is crazy as well , constantly changing between Sels , Woodman and Darlow <laugh> Gayle didn't start a game on mine till December. Manager has dropped Sissoko to the reserves as well <laugh>

And the refs, they need to let you select ref kits. I'm tired of black refs while I'm in my away kit!
