Adding Bale and Ramsey to this current England team would instantly make them one of the 4 or 5 favorites to win the Euros. England has a ton of young talent that has kind of gone under the radar. They are going to be really fun to watch these next ...
| Soccer Board|| FIFA Controller Settings Questions/Tips - mynamebowl on 9/20/14 at 3:18 am|
I've played the game for several years now, mostly Ultimate Team or the online club seasons. I am decent, but by no means an expert. I'm curious as to how you guys prefer to set up your controller settings: Assisted, Semi, or all the way Manual? I've tried going manual a couple times, but I just don...

[quote]I thought the GKs were actually pretty bad.[/quote]
The default setting for GK assistance when I downloaded the demo was "semi" which basically means you have to get the direction right when diving to stop a shot. It actually worked really well for me once I got the hang of it. I've notice...

I do actually. I follow European football and American football, college and pro, very closely. I appreciate and love them both for what they are. And I don't get angry because our sporting structures and cultures are...

Not gonna happen. Those days are over. Personally, I like the game the way it is now opposed to the old days. Sure, some of the personal foul penalties are bogus and frustrating, but the new rules make for a better product. It allows players with superior at...

I haven't been since I was very young. I had a good time I guess (honestly don't remember much about the place), but I doubt I'll go back as an adult. In fact, I know I won't go back. I prefer vacations where I can relax and wind down, rather than dealing with the crowds and all the bull shite that co...

I'll try not to hijack this thread too much here, but a couple questions:

Probably so. But that was a different time. And it's not like he was an all-world CB anyway. He needs to realize that if we really had any players that could get minutes, or be an important player for a big tim...

He sure needs to, IMO. I know he won't be able to get paid in Europe like he is in MLS, but he could easily be a very important player for a top half of the table kind of team in one of the big leagues in Europe. He doesn't ha...

This. It seems like he's getting worse, though. His halftime spots on TV or his in-studio stuff is cringe-worthy. I don't follow MLS too closely so I can't really speak on his commentary about t...
