Decent game. New defending system is shite and I'm just happy I've completed it.

Enrique for left back, not many other good ones around.

I loved FIFA, don't have it at the moment though cause I have no console.

Enrique? Might think about him.

I was thinking of buying Gareth Bale, putting him on the LB cause I play 1-2's with the wing, Kyle Walker is so pacey!
But then Coentrao would be good as well, or I might put in Sakho in the LB, possibly buy Hummels for the CB?

Bale would work on FIFA, go for it!

Not a fan of Coentrao, may as well go Bale if you go for him. Sakho could work and Hummels is great so that would be good as well :)

the defending system isn't too bad if you got it.
but playing against CPU is hard with the defending system. I heard they work on that in FIFA 13.

It's better than the previous fifa games where defending was just to easy..

On Settings, you can change it back to the normal defending. I use the new one though cause it's quite challenging

On my first season, I was runners up for the League Cup (beating Man City and Tottenham, lost to Chelsea), Won the FA Cup (Beating Man Utd, Arsenal and Chelsea) and won the league

On my 2nd season I haven't even played a game yet, but I signed Elyounassi, Miyaichi, Chamberlain, Drenthe and Khulamo!

If your still after a left back Jose Angel is pretty good! :)

The new defending system does suck but i have got used to it now so never thought about changing it back.. I play the manager mode more then anything else and that's the most important thing for me about fifa! They have done well with it this year.. next they should improve the mode where you play as your VP or one player.. They should look at how Pro Evo does it and take some ideas from them! :D

I just finished my fifth career mode season. I began with Spurs and had two seasons, not winning anything :( but getting 3rd both seasons. Then i was offered the Everton job (they were just taken over and had 100 million to spend each season lol). I won league cup in first season, won the league in the second and third (along with the fa cup and champs league to complete a glorious treble :)) Now I have been whisked away to Barca and am in the midst of my pre season.
My final Everton team for the champs league final was

Lloris
Lahm
Thiago Silva
Howedes (good CB at decent price)
Santon (beast of a player and very young, can play LB or RB)
Walcott
Pastore
Lucas (Young Brazilian)
Bale
Torres
Neymar

Subs:
Olsonn
Rene Adler
Hernandez
Aguero
Phil Neville
Lucas Leiva
Michael Essien

The most shocking thing is the fact that in Torres' two seasons with me he scored 28 goals in 26 games, and 39 goals in 34 games. And I still only won the title on the last day :L

LIVE YOU BASTARD! *slaps*

I have a few questions about Fifa 12 as I'm thinking about getting it (italic emphasis).

1) Does anyone know a fantastic beginners guide to manager mode? I'll be Frank: While I'm not bad at the game [i]I think (I did okay in a Fifa 11 tournament last year, although this is my only non-demo experience with it), I have no idea what the manager mode is like, and I'm sure I'll be overwhelmed.

2) In career mode (which is really what I expect to be playing) as a Player, is it possible to be called up to the national team to play? I would be surprised to see the World Cup there (as they make that their own game), but could I play national friendlies or even compete in things like the Euro Cup or Copa America?

3) Are there Champions league competitions? Do they exist in all of the FIFA regions, or just Europe? I ask because I've seen FIFA 11 played a lot (Hankgames on youtube), so I wanna know how that carries over.

Anyway, can anyone suggest a really cheap strong signing for me. I'm Crawley btw.

So far I've brought:

Harriot - Charlton, free

Asante - Birmingham, 1.1m

Can you give me some speedy players, I want my team to be all about the pace.

Enjoy the truth! :D

Luckily I'm smarter than EA and I back-up my save file so all I've really lost is man of the match awards.

I don't really know my reason for doing so but I always buy every years Fifa... I guess it's just because I fancy the update in squads and the few changes in gameplay that the new game brings. I usually trade in the previous years version of Fifa as well to help pay for the cost of the game, so this year I will trade in Fifa 12 and then buy Fifa 13 :)

Hey guys, Im in my third season on 4th January 2014, with CSKA Moscow. Unfortunatley, I dont have another match till 4th Feb, due to the russian Winter Break. But basically I'll give you guys my stats in my first two seasons, with Spurs. Difficulty- Professional

Season 1

Targets: Get Into Champions League, Win FA Cup/League Cup

League; 5th Position-74pts

League Cup- Quarter Final, lost 1-0 to Liverpool

FA Cup- Quarter Final: Lost 4-2 to Bolton

Top 5 Players
Modric- 87
Van Der Vaart- 86
Bale- 86
Di Natale- 85 (22 million)
Adebayor/Parker- 83

Di Natale was top scorer with 24 goals in 35 games in the league.

Top 4 in BPL
1. Man City: 90pts
2. Man Utd: 88pts
3. Chelsea: 81pts
4. Arsenal:78pts

Season 2

Targets: Top 4 in BPL, Final of Europa League and Win Domestic Cup

P.League: 3rd- 79pts

FA Cup- Quarter Finals, lost 2-0 to W.Ham

League Cup- 3rd Round, lost to QPR 1-0

Euro League- Won, beat AC Milan 4-2 in Final

Top 5 Players
Modric-88
Bale-88
Falcao-87 (30 million)
Van Der Vaart- 86/87
Abate- 84

BPL Top 4
1. Man Utd: 86pts
2. Man City 83pts
3. Spurs: 78pts
4. Liverpool: 75pts

Over the two seasons, the top five players I felt were

5. Tim Howard- Brought in on Season 1 for ??? (pretty cheap I think :/ ) and was solid every game I played him in. Helped me out so many times, especially in Europa League final vs. Milan. Despite 2 goals scored past him, he was unreal in nets :D

4. Di Natale- Unbelievably good in the first season I had him, and was my favourite player. But Falcao outshone him in the second season, and Bale and Modric came into their own. He retired at the end of S2, at the age of 35, which I thought was pretty ridiculous, as he is rated 83 at this point

3: Bale- When he was good, he was unstoppable! But the reason he isnt given number one here is that in a good chunk of games, he did absoulutley nothing. He seems like a confidence player in FIFA, cause for me, he has been thru 5/6 games where he has been awful

2. Falcao: If he was here for two years, he would definetley be number 1! However, he only played one season for me, scoring 22 league goals, and carrying us to Europa League success!

1. Modric: When all things are going wrong around him, Modric is always there as a calming influence and a brilliant passer. He was sooooooooooo consisent for me, and chipped in with about 10 goals each season. He made a hatful of assists too
