Karius WOW nightmare
Mane get in there
Bale WOW
Someone Karius out of here

What a final that was. Up until Salah got injured Liverpool were looking good. Karius has made 2 of the biggest blunders you'll ever see, especially the first. Gareth Bale though, unbelievable. They'll be showing that goal in 30 years. One of the all time greats. That's 2 of their recent 4 titles he's won them. The 2014 final against Atletico,he scored the goal that put them in front in extra time and totally changed the game. Ronaldo tried to look like the match winner by ripping his shirt off after scoring late penalty but Bale was the difference,as he was again today.

Interesting fact ,there were 5 ex Southampton players on the pitch with 2 of them scoring 3 of the 4 goals.

Van Dijk
Lovren
Lallana
Mane
Bale

@JayJ I would anticipate the game will go on sale at some point (probably already has in the past), often for a set limited time. Guess it is just a case of keeping your eyes and ears open.

@OorWullie Yeh, very interesting final, mostly a tame, tight game, but punctuated by so many dramatic moments.

@Lroy Yeah I will definitely be looking out for that. I imagine the price should drop by quite a lot by the time FIFA 19 is coming around, or if it doesn't I guess I can just get the new game instead.

@gcunit @oorwullie Just caught the highlights on ITV as had been out on long road trip all day visiting family. Said to the Mrs. Let's watch the Champions League Final and then the Championship Play-Off and you'll see the gulf in class... erm... the highlights probably only exasperated what looked like a largely dull and often scrappy match with astonishingly embarrassing school boy errors. Real shame it couldn't be an even contest what with these gifts to the opposition by Liverpool and their loss of Salah early on. What exactly was the problem with his shoulder, amazed they didn't at least try to pop it back in or tape it up. Thought he would at least try to carry on?

But yeah, Bale's goal was pure class. He is a great player. Too tired to even start the Championship Play-Off. Can wait for another day as it sounds as though the side I wanted to win, didn't πŸ˜‰

@Lroy He tried to carry on but then slumped to the ground not long after. He was understandably devastated .Hopefully it's not serious as the World Cup will be worse off without him. Him going off gave Real the impetus to push forward as before that they were defending deeply,rightly fearing Liverpool's front 3.Mane had a great game and was unlucky not to make it 2v2 after hitting the post right after the Bale stunner. I thoroughly enjoyed the game ,the 2nd half was full of drama. I have to say ,as a Scotsman Robertson played a blinder. His tackle to prevent Ronaldo putting it away was outstanding.

Scotland finally have two top players ,Robertson and Tierney.Just a pity they're both defenders who both play the same position at left back.Tierney ends up shifted onto the right where he struggles. Mctominlay for Man United choosing to play for Scotland was a huge boost for us. Just hope Jose gives him as much time on the pitch next season as he did this. Looks every part a future Scotland captain.

@OorWullie Always a drawback when watching highlights, especially on ITV. Often seem rushed and lazily put together. Plus, I'm dead on my feet this evening. Glad you enjoyed it though mate.

I'm really hoping the World Cup entertains, too often by the time the knock-out stages start, the players look knackered and every other game is just an exercise in cancelling each other out until penalties. Take that with a pinch of salt, I'm grumpy tired and my new job in FIFA 18 isn't proving a bed of roses and I'm beginning to think I should have stayed put, lol!

During the course of last season I built up transfer funds of about 28 million, a combination of prize money and player sales. So having qualified for the Champions League, I was hoping for a big extra slice from the board for the new season to give me about 75 million to bring in 3 quality players.

They took my 28 million and gave me 19 million instead. So I went to the board and asked for 50 million. Nope. 40 million. Nope. 30 million. Nope. Sorry, you've now used up all your requests for this window.

Fuming.

And then I got an unexpected offer for Zaha for around 30 million. I suggested 50 million and the interested club walked away from it. Then the same thing happened, but this time it was Bayern Munich, which I didn't pay attention to, and they agreed to my 50 million, and once that happens, the selling club doesn't get a chance to back out of the deal, which I forgot.

So Zaha is gone. He was my best player, but I wasn't getting the best out of him. I'd prefer to still have him though.

And I've found it really difficult to spend that 70 million well. I've brought in some new Centre Backs, both only 20/21, so they should develop well, but their current ratings aren't much different to my existing defenders. And the bloke I brought in to fill Zaha's spot on the right wing is only rated 72 overall (Zaha is about 85 I think).

Anyone who's of the quality I'm looking for to actually develop my squad into a leading side seems to cost too much.

I shoulda kept Zaha

In my depression, I took the England job. Like in Football Manager though, I can't actually be bothered to do the job, so I just simulated my first two games without looking at the squad at all. Won them both though, so I must be doing something right.

And on the bright side, our first match of the season was the European Supercup final against Bayern Munich. And Zaha was only on the bench (he's such a loser). He came on and we dealt with him, winning the game 1-0.

@Lroy Are you purposefully withholding who you deserted the Cobblers for then?

Do you guys know that is it possible to play the Online versus matches with 4 players co-op? Last Saturday I invited some friends to play some Fifa and watch the UCL final and we tried make that work. Maybe we just missed a setting or something but the when we tried to add more players it would allow only two player co-op.

This is a huge bummer for us and might just kill the Fifa for me and my friends. I don't get why there is a possible restriction because we have played the NHL-series Online with 4 players for decade now on.

Picked the game up yesterday from Argos in anticipation of the World Cup update. They are selling cheap at Β£22, but after my Octopath SE was cancelled due to incorrect pricing, got a Β£5 discount code so it cost me Β£17! Not particularly into football games but want to get into during WC. The amount of options bit overwhelming. First couple hours just finding my way round and creating a player - who's Egyptian (just cos I loved Assassins Creed Origins so much) who I've named Zander Flynn. Luckily EA have provided an awesome soundtrack in the menus, good enough to just chill out to on bus to work. Today is all about training / practice mode.

Hey everybody! Just picked up fifa 18 on the switch store (50% off!)- and ive been out of the loop on the series for a while. My question is, where do I start? I am thinking my career so I have just started, but I haven't played an entry in the series since fifa 12. I was very into 2k18 on switch this last year so I am excited to dive into this. Thank you to anyone who takes the time to answer!

@Njh100617 I'd recommend playing a few exhibition matches just to get a feel for the game again before diving into your career. You might get off to a bad start otherwise and come to regret the dropped points come the end of the season. Before each match there you can play a training routine,they're very handy for getting to grips with the game. When starting your career ,play a couple of preseason friendlies to get to your squad a little better and decide where you should strengthen. Then dive into the transfer market which runs until the end of August. By the time that comes around you will have played a good few matches and will know where you need to strengthen,so make the most of the transfer deadline day. I'm sure others will add some better tips than me. Good luck

@Njh100617 Start your career on a lower difficulty if you feel you need to - you can change it to a harder difficulty as you go but not lower the difficulty. I'd suggest Semi-Pro to start, by the end of the first season you'll likely be hankering to up it to Professional. Or do what I did, start two different Manager Mode save files. One with a club on Semi-Pro and another with a different club on Professional. Start playing the Semi-Pro one and once you feel you can hold your own against all opposition, move over to the Professional save and use everything you have learnt to have a strong first season despite the higher difficulty. I would also suggest picking a low league team as your first Manager's job.

Once you have found your feet, find the formation that works best for you, keep tweaking it by giving each player specific instructions in the customise formation options. Also adapt your tactics to suit your playing style. Move players positions eg. make your full backs, wing backs or move your wide strikers closer to the centre, push your central attacking midfield player higher, whatever. Just don't be afraid to experiment to find the system that works best for how you actually try and attack in the game. Then buy or most likely loan if managing a lower league team, the players to fit into that formation. Also, invest in Youth Scouts and sign anyone they find who has potential of 80 or over to your Youth Academy.

Let me know what club you pick and I'll start recommending some players you might be able to afford or get on loan.

Anyone having an issue as reported on the main site here with FIFA 18 since the World Cup update? My Switch auto-updated the game but now I'm reluctant to launch it in case it causes any issues for my Manager Mode safe file. Are people having crashes and it so, are they still able to play Manager Mode? I need my daily FIFA 18 Manager Mode fix πŸ˜‚

@Lroy I casually simulated the whole tournament and everything worked fine. Then tried to play a World cup friendly match and the game collapses. I suggest that you wait for the patch

I booted FIFA and didn't touch the WC Update. My Manager Mode save worked perfectly πŸ‘Œ
