How To Be A Goalkeeper In FIFA 11

Who’d be a goal keeper, ey? Constantly having balls kicked at them, always diving at feet which are wearing studs and make one mistake and you lose the match. Well EA Sports are giving you the chance to be one in the upcoming FIFA 11 so now you can pull off those stunning saves like Paul Robinson or just make a mistake like erm… Paul Robinson. The position indicator looks to be a Godsend showing you where to stand and should stop keepers all being in the wrong place. could imagine it getting boring when you’re playing against a weaker team though. Having a human brain behind the keeper should mean no more silly mistakes or it could increase them, not sure which way it will pan out but I’m looking forward to finding out.

So infuriating is this that there is even a twitter set up to report quitters at twitter.com/FifaQuitters a recent personal favourite being this one.

There is definitely nothing more frustrating than scoring a goal or two in the opening minutes of a match and having your opponent quit and lost nothing and the match isn’t counted as a win for you. Just try earning that 100 online wins trophy in FIFA 10 where your opponent quitting doesn’t count for a win. I’ve been trying to decide what the best possible solution for tackling this issue could be and came up with a couple of suggestions.
