For me it wasn't about the teams or the players as I didn't hardly know any of them. But it was still a blast to play and I spent a lot of hours playing it. Nice to also see Be A Pro mode in there, its a fantastic new mode that I have loved since FIFA 08 introduced it. Its great credit to EA Sports that I might consider buying a game which I don't watch a great deal of. With FIFA 09 looking like its going to be great, sounds to me like there pulling up their trousers and improving their games finally.
