Welcome to the FIFA 17 American soccer lounge where you can discuss Major League Soccer and the United States Men’s National team.
This will be an active thread to discuss the current matches, news, tactics and squads of the USMNT and MLS . It also will be a place to ask for advice about the MLS, American players and teams in FUT.
Interesting. Kaka is an 82, Tim Howard 81, Giovinco 83, Fabian Johnson 79. Oddly enough Giovani dos Santos is still a 79 despite sitting on 14 goals and 11 assists in 25 games. I think he’s one of only 2 players to have at least 10 goals and 10 assists right now. He should be an 80 if not an 81. He clearly looks to be the future of this LA Galaxy team.
Pulisic is most likely 65 rated. If he was 67+ he likely would have made the career mode potential list. I do expect a H2H/CM bump pretty quickly. Sadly a 65 Pulisic is all we are likely to get on UT unless he has a great game in the Hex but we arent playing St. Vincent in that anymore so that probably wont happen.
Any Americans. Gotta start with Dempsey, Howard, Cameron and build from there though. I’d say Dempsey hands down, after that probably Cameron or IF Johnson. Those utility players that play multiple positions…gotta love em.
With the new ratings the way they are, how many more golds do you think MLS will get? Will we lose some of the great silvers, or will we gain even more with a few guys in the 68 to 70 range getting a boost?
One of the most maddening players. May have more raw talent than any striker in the pool but has never put it altogether. I wonder if the work permit issue really hurt him psychologically. I know it would do that for me.
Idk if we’re going to gain that many golds this year. Not a lot of 73-74 players will be getting upgrades, many of them in our league are older and will stay put or get downgraded like Zusi. I’d be highly surprised if they made Molino gold. It would be deserved, but I don’t see it happening.
Never understood the rarity concern. I don’t care if they’re rare, nonrare, or whatever. If they have good stats and fill a need in my team, I’ll use them. Most of the good nonrare players will get IFs anyway. Look at Kamara and Feilhaber.
I’m really going to try to get over this in the coming year. Ozzie and Lodeiro being nonrare will make it necessary anyway. But honestly it’s dumb, so many great guys I don’t use because they’re 74 rated and nonrare, and I’ll pay 5x the coins for a guy who’s barely better because he’s shiny.
GDS is in the TotW, but fortunately he has an All Star so I won’t have to edit my collection. I think that’s a wrap for FIFA 16. Probably gonna sell it and preorder 17 over the weekend. I wish this would have been TotW 1 so we could have started out with this card. They must be releasing these games later and later because we’ve never had a TotW 53 in the past. There’s only 52 weeks in a year.
It’s a shame his club won’t show more faith in him in the league. This kid is big time. He hasnt disappointed yet. Ive never seen someone his age (especially with some of the lofty hopes and dream we’ve placed upon him) exceed every expectation like this. He deserves more than a 69, but if thats what they give him, I can live with that.
Can’t wait to build a MLS team for 17! Towards the end of 16 I had more fun playing with MLS/USA team than any other league. I felt more passion when playing and was not disappointed if I lost a match, but had more joy when I scored or won a match.
