Ones to Watch


The first promo for FIFA 22 is here, with Ones to Watch kicking us off.

Ones to Watch cards have featured in the past couple of Ultimate Team seasons, and they will be back again in FUT 22.

If you are not sure how they work, then take a look at EA's summary below as there are some changes to the previous editions.

"As players show off their skills on the pitch for their new club, their Ones To Watch item will upgrade when they receive a performance-based in-form item such as Team of the Week and Man of the Match.
"New in FUT 22, OTW items will also be eligible for a ‘Wins to Watch’ upgrade, a one-time +1 In-Form boost if a team wins five matches out of their next ten domestic league games starting from October 1!"

Let us hope that the new boys have a decent impact at their new clubs, so we can cash in on the extra boost.

Worthy reward?

One of the factors to draw people into buying the Ultimate Edition of FIFA 22 and gaining Early Access was the exclusive SBC.

People will certainly be asking, was it worth it?


Shaqiri can hardly be called top quality, even in the early stages of Ultimate Team.

His physical stats, both pace and strength, are pretty average.

However, as we are learning, this year pace may not prove such a necessity as in previous games.

Where Shaqiri does excel is being agile and decent on the ball.

Having a player that can nick the ball past lunging defenders is proving useful this game, so will Shaqiri make your team?
