What Sheffield United fans think of FIFA 20 ratings
From the reactions on social media, it’s fair to say the majority of the response has been negative. And when Ravel Morrison and Phil Jagielka are United’s highest rated players it’s easy to see why.
There is no doubting Jagielka has been a superb defender. Meanwhile, Morrison has huge amounts of potential. Yet decisions such as that appear to have been made purely on reputation over recent form.
The likes of Dean Henderson and Enda Stevens have been improved and rightly so. Yet it could be argued that Stevens has not seen his ratings go up enough.
But major criticisms seem to be the undervaluing of George Baldock and Luke Freeman. Here is what these fans think:
@EASPORTSFIFA why is baldock a 69 are you actually for real?😤😂
