Team of the Season So Far (TOTS So Far) is coming to an end now in FIFA 20, with the likes of the Premier League, La Liga, Bundesliga and other major leagues having their top players honored. Now, all eyes turn to EA SPORTS and the potential continuation of FUTTIES.

What are FUTTIES?

For those who haven’t heard of FUTTIES before, well, there’s a lot to get excited about.  As players will know by now, the FIFA games tend to slow down in terms of interest towards the end of their lifecycle, as attention on what comes next ramps up. However, in a method that always brings members of the community back to see how they fair against the fastest cards in the game, FUTTIES turns it up another notch – making them even faster! And, fans get to vote for who gets the upgrades.

These cards are released like any other promo, with a countdown teaser in-game and eventually confirmed by EA SPORTS.

FIFA 20 FUTTIES release date & time

Some of FIFA 20’s fastest players are – for better or for worse – about to get even faster.

Let’s get the big one out of the way first – the release date and time of the FUTTIES promo. Now, the next major set of speedsters haven’t been given an official launch window as of the time of writing, but an educated guess would suggest it will run from July 2 to August 12, 2020. 

Last year’s event started up on Thursday July 4 and August 14, although if you keep the days of release in mind and look at this year’s as well as last year’s calendar, it would link up like we’ve stated here. Of course, that is just a prediction at this stage.

As the event is still yet to be confirmed, it might be a little early to make predictions… But, that’s not going to stop us – and other players – from taking a swift guess at who will be up for voting this time around.

Clearly, some of these names aren’t going to be huge shocks, but here’s what we’ve got.

  • Cristiano Ronaldo
  • Neymar Jr.
  • Kylian Mbappe
  • Erling Braut Haaland
  • Presnel Kimpembe
  • Marcus Rashford
  • Lorenzo Insigne
  • Hirving Lozano

  • Rafael Varane

How to complete Wes Morgan Moments SBC in FIFA 21: solutions & cost

EA SPORTS have added another Player Moments SBC as part of FIFA 21’s ongoing Black Friday promo in Ultimate Team, and this time it’s an upgrade for silver defender Wes Morgan, celebrating his role as Leicester City captain in the club’s title-winning season.

Morgan, now 36, will forever go down in football folklore as the captain who — along with talismanic hitman Jamie Vardy and enigmatic manager Claudio Ranieri ⁠— guided ⁠the Foxes to a fairytale Premier League title in the 2015/16 season.

The title run, which bookies tipped at 5000 to one before a ball was kicked, is one of the greatest stories in modern football, and Morgan was all for the whole ride.

In the end, only he and Foxes ‘keeper Kasper Schmeichel played every minute of the club’s miraculous 38 games. He was also only the third outfield player to play every minute of a title-winning Premier League season, after Gary Pallister (92/93) and John Terry (14/15). 

EA has now released a “Player Moments” card to celebrate the defender’s achievements. Though the overall may not be too high, Morgan’s upgrade looks like a hidden gem ⁠— here’s how to get your hands on the SBC card.

Wes Morgan SBC stats

At first glance, the new Wes Morgan card isn’t worth too much of a look-in. Don’t let the 74 rating fool you, however, because the Foxes captain is packing some serious firepower with his new SBC upgrade; he could even fit in a meta team!

There are a few low points. Morgan’s shooting is just a low 40, dropped down by 32 finishing and 27 volleys, and many of his stats are a middling 70ish in the front stats.

Morgan has serious gas lying beneath the surface. 71 passing disguises a hefty 95 short passing ⁠— one of the best you can get on a Premier League defender ⁠— and 81 long passing to boot. Crossing is low (29), but he won’t do that much.

Slap a “Shadow” chemistry style on him too, and he rivals top-class defenders like De Ligt and Davison Sanchez. He falls 10 pace short of Gomez, but his Defending (81) and Physical (82) are actually better than the meta Liverpool centerback.

Wes Morgan SBC requirements & solutions

The best news about the Wes Morgan SBC is its cost too. The Leicester City captain can be yours for just a handful of FIFA 21 Ultimate Team coins. In fact, he only requires one 82-rated squad to complete, with a single Foxes player included in the puzzle.

‘Wes Morgan’

  • Players from Leicester City: Min 1
  • Squad Rating: Min 82
  • Team Chemistry: Min 70
  • Players in the Squad: 11

As of publishing, the two-squad challenge costs around 19k coins on Xbox and Origin PC, while PlayStation players can get it for even cheaper at 15k, according to FIFA stats website FUTBIN.

The best Leicester City player to whack into the squad is likely defender Çaglar Söyüncü. He comes in at 80-rated, but costs just 2.4k, so won’t break the bank. Surround him with cheap French stars, and you should hit 70 chemistry with ease.
