    I had a quick browse on the FIFA forums last night and people were claiming the likes of Bolton & Blackburn being taken over and splashing out on Rooney's, Drogba's and so on...

    I don't know what to think of that to be honest.

    I've started a Virtual Pro career for West Brom, and it seems to be okay so far, transfer wise. I'm only controlling my player and enjoying it. I'm bound to become bored though, especially if a big club doesn't buy me when the season finishes.

    Great game. I don't know why so many people are moaning :confused:

    With this career mode can you not just play as United?

    The options I get are to manage or player manage but they want me to create a VP or something?

    How do I do it just as the team if you get me?

    Not really. When you invest money and get a return, ie sufficient game time and enjoyment, it's not writing it off.

    Thats exactly why you already have written 40 quid off.

    And moaning won't take it back.

    To be honest I've never paid atention to the time I was kicking off but I've played numerous matches at night. Usually midweek cup games.

    I never usually play Career mode Sparkles because it's usually too easy and riddled with bugs.

    So far the only thing that has annoyed me is EA still make you qualify for Europe no matter which team you pick. I chose United but I'm not in the Champions League. Now frankly that's retarded but it's the only thing I've come across.

    On the whole I'm absolutely loving it so far. I seriously can't put it down. It's brilliant. I've barely even touched online or Ultimate Team which is what I spent all my time on the last time.

    Yeh noticed that once I carried on reading.

    I did forget to mention though I have come across a really shit bug which I posted a few days ago. It was that despite starting in every league game Cleverley was very unhappy as he wanted to play more.

    Giggs in mine said he was thinking about retiring but after being part of my Carling Cup run he said he was reconsidering because the young team made him feel young :D

    On career mode with a VP, can you move clubs?

    Argh, I'm still half tempted to go out and buy it like the mug I am.

    No. I'm playing it.

    Well actually that's a lie, I'm at work. However I would prefer to be playing it.

    Problem is, there are about 6 games I want right now. So it's not as if I can justify FIFA yet

    Someone on here said you can.

    I haven't come across any news to do with call-ups the International team. Have they taken that out?

    Wish they kept the reserve squad in the game too, rather than walking straight into the first team.

    Hope you can move clubs but I expect call ups to still be in it, poor if there not. Yeah the reserve thing was good last year, shame they got rid of it.

    I'm fuming. Blew a 3-0 lead and drew 3-3 :mad:

    Not even started a career mode yet. The only offline game I have played was Utd vs City which was when I bought the game!

    Online is a bit mental right now. People still trying to defend like FIFA11 isn't working. Still good, though. Enjoying UT and Head to Head seasons.

    Getting a bit fed up with career mode and only a few games in. Playing against the computer seems very dull now, with them using the old turn around trick to try and get past you all the time. On top of that your own teams AI is dire. I'm all for having to actually build up a goal properly but the other players barely move, they're always letting the ball go straight past them before you have chance to switch players, or even running away from the ball in the box half the time. Oh and now theres a button to stick your leg out please don't automatically do it, miss the ball, lose all your pace and let the opposition clean through on goal.

    Fifa 12.

    Just played a head to head league game. Went 1-0 up in the 35th minute and then of course lost contact with the EA servers.

    "The match report will now be analysed to determine the outcome of the game".

    Oh, I lost? That's a fecking surprise from the incompetent cnuts. feck YOU.

    Nope, that is FIFA12's online ranked matches. There's still an overall leaderboard for it based on your overall record.

    Online is full of wankers, played a game before and was losing after 10 mins and then the lad just passed it between keeper and defence for the rest of the half as its literally impossible to win the ball back

    I quit at half-time couldn't be arsed, wont be playing online again.

    I just played a weak team away to Aston Villa and got punished for it. 1 - 0 down and got back to 1 - 1 with a Valencia strike. As I pressed for a winner I got hit with too many men forward and they scored in the 90th minute.

    Wasn't happy but I'm glad your team choice actually makes a difference now. In FIFA 11 I could play my youth team throughout the season and win every game.

    Still very frustrating trying to be a midfielder in be-a-pro. You literally need to go end to end or get marked down for it. You get knackered too quickly, and tackling once gets you a better ratings boost than supplying a cross for a match winning goal.

    That said massive improvement on last year, starting to get to grips with the defending now.

    You know there's something wrong with the game when Vincent bloody Kompany dribbles past 7 players and scores with a sumptuous chip that Messi would not dream off.
