Fifa 15 Update | TOTW 28

Another Team Of The Week is upon us and it's not a bad week in all accounts with EA giving something for most leagues and I for one am happy with who I can buy this week.
STARTING 11:
GK: Roman Bürki, SC Freiburg – 74 > 77
RB: Coke, Sevilla FC – 78 > 80
CB: Gerard Piqué, FC Barcelona – 84 > 85
CB: Rod Fanni, Marseille – 74 > 74
CAM: João Moutinho, AS Monaco – 83 > 84
CAM: Alexandru Maxim, VfB Stuttgart- 77 > 79
CM: Fernando, Manchester City – 79 > 80
RM: Juan Mata, Manchester United – 85 > 86
CF: Raffael, Borussia Mönchengladbach – 80 > 81
ST: Olivier Giroud, Arsenal – 79 > 81
ST: Zlatan Ibrahimović , Paris Saint-Germain FC – 90 > 92

SUBS:
GK: Marcus Bettinelli, Fulham – 64 > 64
CB: Jim Larsen, FC Midtjylland – 69 > 72
CAM: Riccardo Saponara, Empoli – 72 > 73
RM: Lionel Ainsworth, Motherwell – 68 > 71
ST: Anass Achahbar, Feyenoord – 64 > 64
ST: Moussa Konaté, FC Sion – 66 > 70
ST: Harry Kane, Tottenham Hotspur – 77 > 79

Another Harry Kane in the mix this week who had jumped up to a 79 rated card with is astonishing for where he started off this season and his recent form has seen him climb in to the England line up for the next few friendlies.
Another great addition is Fernando who will fit nicely in to my Brazil hybrid side who has great strength and defending which can help any defence out.
Zlatan climbs even higher up to a 92 rated and is looking better than ever and even Giroud gets an upgrade with only his pace letting his card down.
(The fastest player this week being the CB Fanni)

Good Luck And Get Bidding!

Fifa 15 Update | TOTW 26

More disappointment or finally we see players we want and who have earned their spot in this weeks TOTW.
Let's get stuck in:

Starting 11

GK: Iraizoz, Athletic Club de Bilbao – 78 > 81
LB: Kieran Gibbs, Arsenal – 78 > 80
CB: Loïc Perrin, AS Saint-Etienne – 80 > 81
CB: David Luiz, Paris Saint-Germain – 82 > 83
LM: André Ayew, Olympique de Marseille – 78 > 81
LM: Vitolo, Sevilla FC – 77 > 80
CM: Maximilian Meyer, FC Schalke 04 – 75 > 77
CAM: Adrian Mierzejewski, Al Nassr – 75 > 77
ST: Salomón Rondón, Zenit *. Petersburg – 80 > 83
ST: Rubén Castro, Real Betis Balompié – 78 > 81
ST: Luis Suárez, FC Barcelona – 89 > 91

Subs

GK: Tyler Deric, Houston Dynamo – 59 > 69
LB: Lorcan Fitzgerald, Bohemian FC – 54 > 64
CAM: Edwin Cardona, Monterrey – 73 > 74
RW: Michael Ríos, Universidad Católica – 66 > 70
ST: Moestafa El Kabir, Gençlerbirliği SK – 71 > 73
ST: Marco Ruben, Rosario Central – 69 > 72
ST: Marcus Berg, Panathinaikos FC – 77 > 80

I can't express my disappointment enough for this weeks TOTW as the man who I was hoping for and thought truly deserved to be in this weeks was Liverpool's own Jordan Henderson. He is left out this week after a great midweek performance netting an amazing goal and creating a goal for Daniel Sturridge.

On the plus side one great addition for my side this week in David Luiz; he deserved his spot this week and will make a great partnership with either my IF Naldo or normal card Thiago Silva.

Who do you want to buy this week and what team will he be fitting in to?
And like me ... who do you think EA missed out this week?

The Problems With | Fifa 15


Of Course every game has its pros and cons and Fifa every year seems to have it's own bugs and glitches; they will fix one thing and ruin another and us the players will either hate or love the game (or a bit of both but we still can't stop playing it)

This is my own opinion and you may disagree but please respect my views and also share with me how you feel about the latest Fifa on our consoles.

The Goalkeepers were apparently heavily worked on to make them so much better this year to read the play and have better positioning but why can my opposition beat my keeper at the near post nearly every time! Who else has had this problem? A keeper should never be beaten at the near post and this probably won't be fixed until next years Fifa but this really disappoints me.

The First Five Minutes rule can be very frustrating. Don't know what this is? Any online matches whether your playing Pro Clubs or Ultimate Team you could score in the early stages of the day game and if your opponent quits within the first five minutes the game ends and they will not get the loss and it also means no win for you. How annoying right?! This needs to be fixed ASAP.

Commentators are so repetitive. They say the same things over and over again and it can be so boring. I want him to talk about my players season, last match, records and more. I want it to feel like there is a real person actually commentating on my game not just some robot talking rubbish over and over again.

The Referee makes all the wrong decisions. I am sure every can agree on this. I clear the ball from my own box and everything is fine until their attacker then somehow runs into my player falls over after I cleared the ball and the penalty is given! It's ridiculous. Also the referees seems to be too whistle happy; constantly blowing his whistle even if you get the ball back and can go on the counter attack. It can be impossible to get any flow of the game going when he stops it all the time: Play The Advantage!

Lastly let's talk Pace & Dribbling; Yes I know in real life these are dangerous against any opposition but Fifa 15 one player will sprint from kick-off straight through your whole team weaving in and out of your players and slotting it past your keeper. It happens too often. Pace is far too overpowered in this game and no-one is using their ability to work the ball and play football they just lob it forward and they are straight through! How is that realistic?

Please share your thoughts on what I think is wrong with the game and I wan't to hear your views too. Let's just all hope some changes are made for Fifa 16.
