October 1st is nearing, that time of the year when my social life goes into the dumpster, our photographer becomes a FUT god, and the latest installment of the FIFA video game series comes out.
This year’s installment is exciting as EA Sports announced a new create-a-club feature which means I will manage TBM United to glory.
On Monday the rating for the entire MLS were released and New England Revolution fans likely won’t be happy. Let’s get the negatives out of the way.
How is Carles Gil not at least an 80? He is going to win MVP but is rated behind guys like Blaise Matuidi and Gonzalo Higuain. It makes zero sense.
Also Matt Turner isn’t the top goalkeeper. What does he have to do to earn everyone’s respect? Will leading the United States to a World Cup be enough?
Finally Tajon Buchanan has to be at least a 70 overall. The man is going to ball out in Belgium but he is a 68? It’s hard to wrap my brain around this.
On a more positive note, Arnór Traustason is one of the top five players for the Revs. While he has done well, he has also had his setbacks. A player like Buchanan deserves to hold that fifth overall spot.
EA did do one thing right as Henry Kessler, Maciel, and Jon Bell finally got justice. King Less got a bump from 59 overall to 67, Maciel went from 57 to 64, and Bell went from a 55 to a 62.
So while The Bent Musket might be playing more Football Manager this year due to the disrespect of Gil, EA didn’t get everything wrong when it came to the Revs.
