Football fans across the world wait for the release of a new FIFA each year and EA Sports delivers it. Nonetheless, controllers get broken across the world over glitches and wonder goals from the video game’s fans. For some, the FIFA introduced us to the crazy football world. Last year, EA sports introduced the exciting Volta football in FIFA but it failed to captivate the audiences minds. Volta football was reminiscent of FIFA street though it never caught on.

Pro clubs became one of FIFA’s most popular modes over the years and it has become an online classic with football fan pages continuously talking about it. On the other hand, success in Ultimate team become highly dependent on payments to EA sports. This resulted in Fans neglecting the mode itself.

Career mode

EA sports claims to revamp the career mode by fixing the glitches face last year. FIFA 21 has the Interactive Sim mode in which players could jump in and out of simulated matches. Manager mode will include a Activity management system which will enable players to help manage the squad better

Manchester United Ratings

Playing FIFA is a joy in itself, but winning with your favourite club is what sparks happiness in people from within. As a fan, nothing beats the feeling of scoring the Bicycle Kick with your favourite player against your rivals even if it wasn’t likely to happen in real life.

Manchester United’s FIFA 21 player ratings are out and nearly 10 players have gone up in rating for United. Star player Paul Pogba and David De Gea faced a drop of one point each.

Decrease in ratings

Some major stars such as De Gea and Pogba have received a negative change. De Gea failed to perform according to his standards over the past season whereas Pogba spent the majority of the year on the sideline due to injury. The biggest downgrade was Jesse Lingard who is criticised for not being able to contribute enough to the club. He received a -4, which seemed to have been a result of his last year’s form.

United have been quite an entertaining team to play on FIFA and this team looks even more exuberant with recent additions. A probable Sancho transfer would shuffle things up for sure. Overall the squad experienced a +29 which was quite good. FIFA 21 releases on October 9 and the football community is going to be waiting for it
