  1. More Leagues like the scottish lower divisions and England’s Blue Square Premier division. also, at the start it shows the referee and who he is, but he isn’t in the actual gameplay, then he appears for freekicks etc. why?

  2. I think a way to increase game play for EA Sports is, instead of choosing difficulty level, the player has to start of playing a countries lower league at first and then as either they a) get better because of their Experience Points (earnt in Be a Pro etc) or another option b) as the progressively get better at the game, they can choose better leagues (or stay with the same team because there stats have all got better to be able to compete in that new league). – Just a thought!?

  3. your created person should get interviewd and if he his say in a portuguese club he be speaking in poruguese and there would be subtitles . and when your creating him you should be able to pick a voice for him

  4. you should be able to put a nutmeg mode where you will be playing and a icon will come at the side and tell you to press a button then the ball will go thru your opponets legs

  5. if your creating a person you should be able to make your guy a showboater non show boater or in
    betwwwen

  6. i think you guys should make doing a rabona easer in std of having to be on a certain angle to it

  7. i think you guys should add diffrent styles for the players playing like how cristiano ronaldo swings his arms when he runs and when your creating your guy you change his style of how you player or dribbles the ball

  8. Mas que simple… Haganlo igual al sistema de juego del PES 08, solo dejen sus graficos de FIFA…

  9. ADD MANY CARIBEAN TEAMS
    1.JAMAICA FOR SURE.
    other than put japan chile ccolumbia venezual.canada,india. make the game graphics better on WII and ps2, REF SHOULD BE ON THE PITCH. COACH AND OTHER PEPOLE ON THE TEAM LIKE TRAINERS ASSIStant coach shold be there and also subs should be there to. At lleast most players on the game get good faces. In create a person the faces shouldnt look like crap they should look like somthing like a superstars face but the have to change it up a little bit. There should be tournaments like world cup uefa gold cup. there should also have certain teams to have u-20 teams for like taems that went to the last u-20 team

  10. Simple…..
    Change the Pass speed.

    fifa 08 pass speed toooo slow to counter attack nicely.

    Make the players have sharper turning ability sharper control.

    they turn too slow allowing them selves to be disposessed. not able to cut round defenders without using the skill button. or a sharp pull back.

    That and the Pass speed plus becpoke button configuration will pull fooball fans from your rivals, because that and the visible ref is the difference.

    Oh yeah …….add the managers on the touch line in the managers and subs bench (not all stadiums) shouting and movin up and down the touch line. Would look great!!!

    Thanks!!

  11. more realistic ratings, smoother sprinting like on PES games and a few more effective tricks for matchplay as they don’t always work.be a pro mode to be extended so it’s just like manager mode. plus what jumbo said about the goal of the month. that would be sweet on xbox live. 🙂

  12. I think you should be able to curl in freekicks like the last one there rubbish this time and also you should be able to swap deal with players in transfer mode i.e player plus money.

  13. unlockable monkey teams streakers at half times build a team that includs elliott flack in goal, george balfour at left back, sam bolitho and matt hemepsted at centre back, carl brewster at right back, keiran neil at left mid, george boarer and shane meech and sam’fatty’ bulley at centre mid, george moore at right mid, ollie parsons up frunt IF YOU DO THIS MY DAD WON THE LOTTERY SO WE WILL PAY YOU

  14. make the players muddy in games, man, celebrations like in real life, always full crowds, more than 10 mins a half, control kepper in pro-co-op, when you do certain challenges in pro-co-op it says you have,nt sort it out, bruvs. when you win da champions league you only get like 4 million pounds and in real life you get like 40 million and clubs that have been promoted to da premier league they start with 5/10 million and normally in real life they get like 50 million, at half time in manager mode you should be able to give team talks. make lower leaguees like ryman prem and da migthy horsham!!!

  15. make the players muddy in games, actually have a ref and linesman on da pitch man, celebrations like in real life, always full crowds, more than 10 mins a half, control kepper in pro-co-op, when you do certain challenges in pro-co-op it says you have,nt sort it out, bruvs. when you win da champions league you only get like 4 million pounds and in real life you get like 40 million and clubs that have been promoted to da premier league they start with 5/10 million and normally in real life they get like 50 million, at half time in manager mode you should be able to give team talks. make lower leaguees like ryman prem and da migthy horsham!!!

  16. For Ps2-
    PLZ ACTUALL KIT NUMBERS IM SICK OF OLD KIT NUMBER YEARS AGO
    Have the euro kit numbers and actuall club kit numbers
    Have The Ref on the Pitch and make him look real
    Players should get haircuts from time to time in manager mode.
    Player Faces should Move better because when you go instant replay the faces stay still when they get tackled and it looks retarded
    You should be able to take on the goalie more easyly.
    Coach in the sidelines while game in progress
    The subs should be sitting down on the bench while game in progress
    When someone gets subbed have the assist ref have the sign up having the numbers saying 10 off 11 on
    The croud should look more real
    Penalties should be only missed if you overcharge not tap the button and he full-on boots it
    No fake players like de noteboom
    Have at least one stadium for every league
    When its extra-time halftime it should have players in the background drinking water same with penalty kick selection
    Only one commentator- I recomend Marting Tyler, His a gun.
    More real faces
    More soccer balls- no ea generic
    In manager mode make it after season 1 remove fifa 09 from the advertising boards.

  17. This is for ps2-
    you should change the gameplay. It’s Unrealistic
    No fake players like de noteboom.
    Have at least 1 stadium for each league.
    Have subs sitting down on the sideline and the coach standing.
    More players have real faces.
    Put the greek, Argentinian and russian league in it.
    The ref more realistic
    The players should move their faces while playing- if you go instant replay their faces look still
    Players should get haircuts in manger modes from season to season.
    It should be easier to take on the keeper
    The crouds look fake make it look better.
    Penalties are bad it should be like in world cup 06 where you only miss if its over powered

  18. Please organise contests for the best idea, suggestion, concept submitted. I am very confident that this’ll spur creativity that will make Fifa a far better game than it is today. Prizes will include current and next gen consoles.

  19. i think most of the young players are havily underrated like dos santos and alexandre pato , i also think the classic XI is disgusting , what about marrdonna and matt le tisier how ever you spell that and gascoigne and the players stamina should be improved i mean we see stikers and defenders play 90% of the time like rooney and puyol , those guys hardly ever miss matches

  20. Why dont you make a “solo career” option. You control 1 player and the mission is to go from youth club to a famous ig club…. getting better for each season you have to make a new contract with our old club or play as well as other clubs will buy you.. that could be fun!

  21. i think you should be able to have a laptop in manager mode like LMA managers, there players can send you email about if they are happy with the club or any injury problems picked up in training, etc. also in the half time you should be able to be the manager in the changing room and be able to pick from an assorted selection of options like ” try to tire them out” and “one touch passing” this way you teams morale should go up or if it doesnt work go down, after the match you should have like match highlights with the presenters, and they should bring in special guests like tony adams etc. during that they talk about the league, how players are forming, and the good and the bads with a bit from a replay showing you them setting up a goal or brilliant tackles etc. in manager mode you should be able to pick what players do what type of training, i also have alot more ideas like atmosphere of crowd and that but most have been said in some threads below,

    Many thanks for reading this

    xbox live gamertag: BeNgEy BoY JR hope to have a game with some people soon 😉

  22. PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE LISTEN TO ME I REALLY WOULD LIKE IT IF YOU HAD THIS ON THE NEXT FIFA KEY: * IS VERY IMPORTANT
    1)*i find it so hard to make money on fifa because you hardly get any money from sponsors, and you do not get money for winning stuff
    2)*what the hell is the point of having a board if they dont pay for anything. i think that you should be able to ask for money in pre-season for transfers but it should be really hard depending on the amount so you should be able to leave a comment out of a big list like, last season we neerly fot relegated, other teams are buying lots of players, i want to get promoted, i want to breach the top four, we have just been promoted and i want to stay in the premiership.
    3)*you should get money for winning finals getting promoted and finishing in top 4.
    4) get the real life amount of money for stuff like getting promoted from the coca cola championship you get £60million
    5)*it would be great if the board said to you that if you achieve one of thier expectations like winning promotion or cups you get money
    6) managers also should have coctracts so if you sign for liverpool you should get money every year.
    7)* have a conference leage
    8)* if you are say in the cocference and you go to leage one maybe have new owners should come and buy the club
    9)*build stadiums,choose its cappacity, and what its called.
    10) have a fitness coach
    11) have pre-season training
    12) have football tours
    13) i never know what position is weekest, so maybe the imagenary assistant can bloody help me!!!!!!
    14) build new training grounds
    15)*clubs in real life can loan more than 2 players look at stoke cicty in the 07/08 season they had loads of players on for loan
    16)* if you have players on your shortlist a couple of weeks before the transfer period it should go into transfer rumors
    17*be able to see other leages and how teams are getting on
    18)* see top goalscorers in different leages
    20)* goal of the month, goal of the season, player of the year,young player of the year, team of the year, teams player of the year
    21)* you should be able to leave some reserves behind and make them train so that they can become better footballers.
    22)****in pre-season instead of going straight to a match you should be able to go to mid-week and buy a player so he can be ready for the next match
    23)* have trading players avalible
    24)in team management you should be able to have a create a formation option
    25) have a freindly for your reserves
    26) if you are not a very good club and you are going far in a cup the commentators should comment on how well yuo have done to get that far
    27**) i think you should eithermake the difficulty levels harder or get rid of team chemistry because i love having really s*** clubs and making them rather good and making them go into the premiership but i would love to make them go into a relegation battle but because of this stupid team chemistry can go to high you can have your first season in the premirship and win the leage which is so unrealistic
    28)*i think there should be a transfer frequeny level so that high should be that clubs buy lots of players, medium,low hardly any clubs buy players
    29) the top four should always be Liverpool,Arsenal,Chelsea,Man united and maybe a few teams trying to breach the top four sector (unless your not one of those clubs
    30) before the season starts there should be a look at what the predictions are of the final leage positions
    31) when you get promoted, win a cup sposors should raise your money for match salary.
    32) better fan graphics
    33) have iternational competitions world cup?
    34) beeter youth players
    35)at the end of the season if a players coctract is needed to be renewn and the player does not want to stay you should give him away for free
    36) you should be able to rate some players more because i think some players are underated
    37) have a club ranking, europe ranking, and a what other clubs think of your ranking
    38) i think board expectatins should be something like this:
    SCORE MORE THAN 80 GOALS
    DONT COCEDE MORE THAN 30 GOALS
    TRY AND FINISH IN THE TOP FOUR
    DO NOT FINISH LAST IN THE TABLE
    WIN THE LEAGE
    QUALIFY FOR ANY EUROPEAN COMPETITION
    RAISE THE CLUBS RANKING
    BUY 3 NEW PLAYERS
    HAVE A PLAYER ON THE TOP GOAL SCORERS LIST
    SIGN A PLAYER WITH LOTS OF EXPERIENCE IN FOOTBALL
    39) have more carreer threatening injuries
    40) if a palyer breaks there leg there not going to walk off the pitch
    41) CLUB STARTING BUDGET SHOULD BE SO MUCH HIGHER
    42) CLUBS SHOULD ASK YOU FOR PRE-SEASON FREINDLIES
    43) FANS SHOULD NOT ALWAYS TURN UP IF YOU HAVE DONE C*** IN THE SEASON, FIRST FEW GAMES THE STADIUM SHOULD BE PACKED, IF YOU ARE LOOSING 2-0 IN THE LAST TEN MINUTES THE FANS SHOULD WALK OUT, IF YOU ARE ABOUT TO GET PROMOTED ARE AVOID RELEGETION THERE SHOULD BE A PITCH INVASION.
    PLEASE PLEASE FIFA I HOPE YOU HAVE LISTENED TO WHAT I HAVE SAID AND YOU HAVE TAKEN IT TO ACCOUNT AND HOPE FIFA 09 IS EVEN BETTER THAN FIFA 08 AND PRO THREE CHEERS FOR FIFA FOREVER

  23. THE NEXT FIFA GAME SHOULD HAVE THIS BECAUSE IT WOULD MAKE THE GAME EVEN MORE BETTER THAN YOUR RIVAL PRO-EV.
    1) add the conference leage
    2) when pkayers come through youth academys they should be better
    3) be able to build stadiums
    4) get lots of money for getting promoted ar winning a final, for example if you get promoted from the coca-cola championship you get £60million.
    5) it is so hard to make money in fifa so have weekly salary
    6) also if you get promoted your salary after every match should rise loads
    7) i think you should be able to e-mail the board to ask for money
    8) i always make lots of money get bored switch clubs and have no money
    9) make Bristol City much better cus they are always under rated
    10) there needs be snow in northern countries in the winter
    11) the sponsor should get so much more money
    12) i made bristol city a 5-star club left the for a year the went back to the and were relegated something is not right there.
    13) i never have the money to keep a good player cus they are demanding so much money
    14) you should be able to have more loans than two
    15) the board should pay for more things like transfers
    16) there should be pre-season training
    17) in the newspaper there should be more than one pointless page of one sentence for example you should have liverpool f.c. win there opening game of the season on another page bristol city board give manager 40million pounds to spend on players to keep them in the premeirship after promotion.
    18) have more info on qualifying for cups cus i dont know how to get into the intototo cup.
    19) in my case the top four in the premiership will never change cus they are to good and to flipping rich! so have this in the game cus west brom in the game just got promoted and in their first season they finished 2nd which is so unrealistic
    20) some board expectations should be to breach the top four,finish in a certain place,score more than ??? goals are do not cocede over 35 goals
    21) also be able to choose out of a list in pre seson of what your hopes and expectations are e.g i want to finish in the top half and maybe challenge for europe
    22) better fan graphics, in every county fans celebrate differently.
    23) play-off finals should be played at wembly
    24) once players get old the club should get rid of them for free
    25) be able to trade for players
    26) more internatinal games and competitions
    27) be able to go in pre-season tours, tournoments

  24. after each season you have the chance to change you home, away and goalkeeper kits, also have the chance to move and rebuild a new stadium.

  25. PLEASE PUT IN MORE SOUTH AMERICAN TEAMS!!! THE ENTIRE BRAZILIAN AND ARGENTINIAN LEAGUES ARE A MUST…AT LEAST PUT IN A COUPLE URUGUAYAN ECUADORIAN OR BOLIVIAN TEAMS COME ON GUYS

  26. I think there should be a be a pro manager mode it would make the game more realistic and the player that you pick gets offered bid to sign the player

  27. 1) On a breakaway, a keeper brings a player down. That should be a penalty. But in the game, it’s nothing. Please change this

    2). On a Penalty kick, the rulebook says the kicker can not touch the ball a second time until the ball is touched by a second player. So When a penalty kick bounces off the goalpost, the kicker can not touch it again. However, in FIFA 08, this is not a violation. Please change this also.

  28. In Manager Mode if you start with say Manchester United or Lyon e.t.c. you should start off in the champions league aswell because it never puts you in on the first season you have to play one then qualify,

    also make headers and corners and free kicks more scoreable, sometimes they are impossible.

    Shots and ball trajectory and bend hdipping and float through the air more realistic

    thanks hope Fifa 09 is as good as fifa 08

  29. A few problems that need to be fixed 4 FIFA 09

    i’ve barely got to play 08 because on my PC, FIFA 08 nearly broke down my computer so PLEEEEEEEEEASE fix this

    Manager mode you should be able to play training and Have lots more difficulty mode

    Junior (Like PES begginer)
    Ametuar or howeva u spell it
    Semi Pro
    Pro
    Top Division
    World Class
    Legendary
    FIFA Master (Needs Unlocking instead of Legendary)

    And plz could we have the REAL Holland And Blue Square Premier (I like Crawley Town)

    Also have Boavista in Rest of World

  30. we want
    1) maradona on classic X1 and many more so that we can select
    2)heading should be improved

  31. add indian team in next version since there are many people in india who love
    ea sports fifa 08 ……and waiting to play an indian team on the game

  32. one more thing – everyone feels excited when a new player is bought, how about having an instance as soon as the new player is bought like having a shirt giving procession like in real life. the manager handing a new striker his number nine shirt. that would make new buys so much more exciting.

  33. in manager mode something nice would be if you become successful as a manager, other clubs should make offers for your services. that would be more like the real world. another thing is there is no trade transfers which would also make manager mode more fun. How about a manger for international teams also – helping the team reach the world cup, euro etc. Enhancing the manager mode would make 09 alot of fun.

  34. when you get promoted, win a cup or the leage you should get the real life amount of money. also if you finish in top half you should get money
    i find it so hard to make money, have weekly salary, the board gives you a big sum of money during the summer transfer window and if the club is not doing amazing in january you should be able to e-mail the board to ask for money.
    more stuff in newspaper.

  35. make it so when your doing a season with say manchester united u have an opputuntiy to join an international team like england or porutgal because it gets boring with the same team so put international teams onit!!! n put the ref on da pitch and linesman n also when u score make the fans celebrate !!!

    good game tho lol

  36. please add a venezuelan club in other clubs , and add venezuela in international teams, and at last make a program that with the xbox you take a picture of you and in the creation centre this photograph of your face get fix and transform into a fifa player face and then you can make a real good copy of you to play

  37. commentaters say more stuff rather than the usual

    see players warming up on the sideline and goalscorers celebrate with them

    Have more internationals instead of the occasinoal 2 frendlies

  38. adding to the comments i have made , the shooting passing scence isnt as good as it can be , it could be made more realistc by looking at the players profile an seeing what foot they are , being a fifa fan i like to see the best game published and to be most realistic ,
    you should look at the players and make them kick with there kicking foot more than there weaker foot , also when they do kick with there weaker foot it should be not as good such as a weaker pass or a wider shot
    thanks for taking this into consideration

  39. Whers the REAL HOLLAND plz u need it with propa kit. I supportin em at euro
    GO DUTCHIES

  40. Sorry, i made a mistake on the second idea.

    I also had an idea of making manager mode interactive where you could choose a team to manage and you actually have to play against other online players to win the title, also when the transfer market comes around on this interactive version of manager mode, you are put up to the test of bidding for players against other actual online players and even having to accept/decline offers for your players that have been made from the other online players.

  41. plus after a season at a team you can unlock this item which lets you change all the kit cause to be real after 5 seasons as madrid i can hardly see them having the same shirts
    and as down below all countries and the real holland not thesr rohnarr and hornebout who know one has heard of
    an like the person below me that type of tranferrs aswell in cludinbg trade transferrs
