FIFA 14 has been out for just over 24 hours, and already it has provided us with a piece of comedy.
The latest release from EA Sports is the most realistic football experience yet supposedly – unless you are talking about the transfer news it provides.
FIFA 14 clearly rates Stewart Downing far more than Liverpool boss Brendan Rodgers, as it asks the question – Can Liverpool live without Downing?
The answer is probably yes, but the guys at EA Sports don’t seem to think so.
‘Liverpool will surely be regretting this decision in the games to come.’
Now Liverpool were awful against Southampton last weekend, but as they were going on to lose 1-0 and looking totally bereft of attacking ideas – I still don’t think a single person watching would have turned and said: “Do you know what we are missing today? … Stewart Downing.”
Sam Allardyce seems pretty happy about his purchase however, declaring: “I think any manager would be pleased with this purchase.”
Just ask Kenny Dalglish how pleased he was Sam!
