I haven’t bought fifa for years - I felt a bit betrayed by the gross, aggressive and cynical push to ongoing monetisation through micro transactions- but 23 kind of becomes a bit of history.

You could offered me 1million-1 on fifa & EA breaking up and I wouldn’t have wasted a dollar on it. It’s been the easiest money both of make for 25 years.

—————

Started a new FM save (without buying the new version yet, so Div 2.) You forget how slow the first 2 months of your first season is. Rayo Vallecano - Madrid’s 3rd club, Madrid’s workers club. Early results are good despite turning over at least half the team.

Won the league on the last day by a point and somehow won the CL too on penalties against City.

Went a bit nuts in the window too :D

I rotate a lot. Barnes has been smashing it and right now would be my first choice on the left given his form. Adeyemi is great too and bangs in goals often. I drop players if they aren't in form so I can get the most out of my squad and try and keep everyone happy.

I've always thought FM had inflated transfer fees. If you did an Arsenal save, you can recoup way more than what they'd realistically get.

I feel like they massively overrate arsenal every year.

See them winning or challenging for the title in a lot of saves within 1-2 years
