The FIFA15’s transfer market has some update

a

 

Now our major event to look forwad to FIFA 15 January transfer update with highly anticipated in UK and US after the TOTY cards have finished for FIFA 15.

We have already seen one or two notable transfers happen in real life of course, but the main action will happen on the last day when the January transfer window closes on February 2, 2015 at 11pm UK time.

EA meanwhile has been sticking to a strict pattern each year. We can tell you that the developer should launch the first wave of FIFA 15 January transfer upgrades on January 30.

Of course, there will be some transfers that will happen on February 2, so that’s why EA will launch FIFA 15 transfer updates in various batches.

We expect them to do the same for the January upgrades this year, so expect the first batch to go live on January 30. For those asking what time will the FIFA 15 January update go live in UK, history suggests that it will happen during the early evening, UK time.

If anything changes before Jan 30, we will update this accordingly. For now, give us your expectations of the upcoming window.

West Ham United defender Winston Reid denies he’s pushing the club to sell him to Arsenal.

The Mirror newspaper reported that Reid had told West Ham that he won’t be signing a contract extension and that he wants to play for Arsenal.

However BBC sources have said that isn’t true, and that the Hammers are confident of holding onto the defender.

Reid has also tweeted that the Mirror story is not true.

The BBC said Arsenal would only move for Reid should they miss out on other targets in January.

One national newspaper has reported that Reid has been actively seeking a move to the Emirates after Arsene Wenger hinted that the defender was one of his target’s for this month’s window.

This the 26-year-old guy’s Twitter.

Manchester United’s players must start taking more risks with the ball

Manchester-United-v-Swansea

Gary Neville has criticised Manchester United’s Daley Blind for taking the ‘easy option’ and failing to provide telling passes for the team’s strikers.

The Holland international has anchored United’s midfield since his £13.8million move from Ajax in the summer.

But Blind and his new team-mates have made their worst start to a season since 1986 and are 10th after 10 games.

Louis van Gaal’s side lined up in a 3-5-2 formation at Loftus Road on Saturday but struggled to breakdown QPR.

With United supporters singing “4-4-2” and “attack, attack, attack”, Van Gaal switched formation just before the hour mark and was rewarded with goals from Marouanne Fellaini and James Wilson.

However, while the change in formation led to United’s breakthrough, Sky Sports pundit Neville believes the players must change their mentality and, rather than worry about not losing the ball, think about how they can go forward with it.

“It’s more impatience than unhappiness [from the United fans],” he said on Monday Night Football.

“They haven’t been taking risks in the 3-5-2 system and in the first 57 minutes at QPR there were no goals, only five shots, four on target and 68% possession.

“Then, when they go to the back four, there’s less possession but goals, more shots and generally a far better performance from them in the last half hour.

“It’s partly the system but it’s a mentality thing as well. I’m not a fan of 3-5-2, when you play that, you end up with your centre backs being the free men and that becomes a careful option, then it kicks into your mentality: ‘I’ve always got a safer pass’.”

Tempo

Neville also had an issue with the speed of United’s play, pointing out Van Gaal’s defenders were spending too long with the ball before getting it forward into the QPR half.

“They play the ball out from the back – as most good teams would – but the tempo is too slow. They play too many passes. Those back three players are on the ball far too much,” he said.

“In the first half on Saturday, Manchester United centre-backs had 114 passes of the ball. You look at the other teams that played away from home this weekend, Southampton (57), Chelsea (37), Arsenal (26) and it’s a miraculous difference.

“When they go to the back four in the second half it goes to 54 passes. It’s a big difference. They started looking at diagonal passes, playing risky ones, making QPR work and doing things that are unpredictable.”

Change

Jamie Carragher reckons Van Gaal’s decision to switch formation wasn’t swayed by the United fans at Loftus Road – but feels the Dutchman must look closely at the stats and consider a long-term change away from the 3-5-2 system.

“The fans singing “4-4-2” and “attack, attack, attack” won’t change Louis van Gaal, given the manager he is. But those stats should change him and that’s the reason why he should go back [to 4-4-2],” said Carragher.

“Systems give you different things but that shows they are more successful playing like that. He’s a possession-based manager but it has to be fast, with penetration. The top teams keep possession – but it has to be quicker.”
