Quite frankly I think they're terrible... Gazzaniga 62?!
Now that saints are back in the big time, it's time to buy FIFA!
Is Boruc on the game somewhere then? I couldnt find him?
Not that I have a clue what it all means but KD 74?? more like 7.4.
So bad. To be expected, it is EA Sports. Lambert lower than an out-of-position Jay? Fack right off.
most of these will get bumped up within the next few weeks.
I've been playing since Saturday, we came as a (ridiculously narrow) 4-3-3 on mine. Easy enough to switch it up anyway - got it set up as 4-2-3-1 at the moment:
That formation pushes Gaston further forward than the two next to him though. Plays brilliantly in the whole and links up very well with Lambert.Code:Davis Clyne Fonte Hooiveld Fox Davis Schneiderlin Puncheon Ramirez Lallana Lambert
If anybody plays Ultimate Team then good luck with completing a Saints squad - Mayuka sells for 30,000 coins at the moment because he's apparently the only BPL striker with a 5* weak foot (plus 4* skills and 90 pace).
Oh and also we took a right hit in the live updates after the Arsenal game (as you'd expect). It must update every couple of weeks as we weren't boosted back up after Villa. A couple more decent results and our stats will look better than these base ones.
On the iphone/ipad version the stats sema little better
Gaston is 80 , Clyne is 83, Lallana is 81, S.Davis is 77 , Fox is only 69 though
Schneiderlin lower than Kelvin, Steve Davis, Clyne and Hooiveld is very surprising and unjust. It would be interesting to know how they came to this assessment.
just remember it could be worse with PES 2013 when were either 'south coast club' or 'red and white rovers' with barely recognizable players
Why are people so bothered? If you're that worried about their stats... just edit them!
I'm not allowed to play the game anymore as I once threw a PC out the window after losing to my brother many many years ago.
I have a wicked temper when it comes to Speedball 2, Counterstrike & FIFA.
Yoshida should be far better than that with what I have seen of him. He'll be our no1 CB this season IMO.
I wait with anticipation the reaction when FM2013 is released and we see the stats MLG has given our squad
Having difficulty with all the Saints rares. Only one I've managed to get for a decent price was a Seaborne. Haven't seen an awful lot of Gazzanig's and all are going for a few grand. For my 2* team I've ended up with a Saints back four, Morgan holding and 5 French players in front of him to try and boost the chemistry.
Wish the matchday stuff would update more promptly. Doesnt seem a lot of point in advertising that it reflects real life if it's going to be a week out of date all ther time.
Please explain why anyone would by PES? Players don't look the same, Clubs aren't the same, and transfers etc out of date? Surely just by FIFA 13?
Yoshida is the only player with a game face.
Lambert's only rated 74 so E.A have another expensive player on the Ultimate Team market.
We're not a bad team to use on head to head mode, Ramirez and Lallana both skilful and Lambert is deadly inside the box.
The best players to use on Fifa are players who are quick and big. We were never much good on the last few because we had little pace in the side. Sure Mayuka will be a handy player on the game this season.
Sure Fonte and Lambert were rated as 70 when we were in L1?!
I don't wanna come over all intellectual or whatever but i know some things bout apostrophes and this thread should be more bout Jack Cork's opinion of FIFA2013 and not vice versas
been playing career since sunday, the player growth seems better this year - about two thirds of the way through the season and so far Lallana has grown to 80, Ramirez 82, JRod 77, Clyne 78, Mayuka 76, Schneiderlin 77, Cork 75, Yoshida 73, Shaw 64. KD has slipped to 72
No problem SB old pall. Firstly by by I guess you mean buy? If so, people might buy it out of loyalty as they have enjoyed previous versions or they might prefer the game play of PES or winning 11 or they just might not want to give Fifa and big Sep any more money. I know you always enjoy reading my posts, I hope this helps. x
Fully licensed Champions/Europa League? I have no idea myself, played the demo and thought it was poor.
Why is Kelvin 74 on this?! He is unplayable in the game!
i used to play fifa 96 sometimes and get all emotional when le tiss dribbled the length of the pitch and lobs the keeper on the PS1
loved Brian lara cricket too!
Got a life these days :-)
I am honoured that would do that for me SB. By there, I am guessing you mean their? Iphone must be playing up again.
I think you may be right. People that 'support' one game over an other are a bit strange though, whether it is being pro Fifa or pro PES, they are just games! Buy the one you like and leave it at that.
Alternatively, you might wish to write a blog and show your friends.
Is it true that if you turn "match day" on the teams update with the last line up in "real life" and player rating go up or down depending on real life form? If so, that is amazing.
It is but Saints are still listed as being bottom of the league, recent form consists of nothing but losses, every player has had their overall reduced due to being off form and all the upcoming "games of the week" happened last weekend.
Could be a great feature if it actually reflected real life and wasn't a week behind.
This is precisely why the best Football game on the market is, and has always been (in both guises), the FM series. Will still get Fifa though, but I'm really **** at it. I'm not patient enough figuring out the controls.
They seem about right considering we're a newly promoted team and largely untested at the top level. I'm sure the likes of Lallana, Ramirez, Lambert etc will break into the 80s after a few months.
Saying that though, quite how they can rate Schneiderlin a 72 (seriously, wtf?) and Yoshida, who *captains his country*, a 69 is beyond me.
My first bit of business swapped Dickson for Olsson plus 1.3m.
