In a dark portent of the licensing battles for football to be fought, FIFA 23 Coins has lost the J1 League license this year, which meant no more King Kazu. This has led to the team to change direction and become an equally exciting Bronze and Silver Australian A League team that features the fearsome offensive force Hibs forward Martin Boyle and the aptly called David Ball. Like last time my underdog team was responsible for several angry exits against teams with million-coin collections, exposing Ultimate Team as a gilded farce.

The more people began rolling into the arena, I noticed that playing three at the back is a fast way to get a 3-0 lead if the opponent's wingers have some kind of speed (as they generally do).
