FUT 14 Legends – Why the Best Players of All Time Are All Wrong ?

FUT 14 Legends - Why the Best Players of All Time Are All Wrong ?

 
 

FUT 14 Legends has showed to us (and probably for many people) that EA Sports don’t have a so good knowledge about football as we thought. Why the best players of all time are all wrong?

 
 
 
 

FUT 14 Legends – Why the Best Players of All Time Are All Wrong ?

 

First of all, we love FIFA 14 as we love all the FIFA franchises. In our opinion, EA Sports is making a very good job with these games. We truly respect their work. But this time, we are very disappointed. The choice of the FUT 14 Legends is to bad to be real (click HERE to know them). We will explain why.

 
 
 

They Forgot to Include the True Legends !

 

We really appreciate the way how they deal with the player ratings and attributes. It is not easy but they already proved that they are good doing that. Obviously, that there always different opinions but, generally speaking, the ratings and stats of each player seems very well to us.

Unfortunately, the team that makes this wonderful job is probably too young to know some facts about football, a sport that is making 150 years old next month. We know that, for commercial reasons, they tried to gather the best players of the last 30 years (that’s the period of time that FIFA players have memories). And we also know that they may had problems to get the rights due to to copyright reasons. But we do not agree with that. It is a crime to leave outside most of the best players of all time. Here is our short list of players that can not be forgotten:

Alfredo Di Stéfano
Ferenc Puskás
Eusébio
Bobby Charlton
Lev Yashin
Johan Cruyff
Franz Beckenbauer
Zico
Garrincha
Michel Platini

You may have a different opinion, but probably we all agree that these players are true legends.

Even in the players of the last 30 years, there are great players that were forgotten, like Ronaldo, Roberto Baggio, Eric Cantona, Zinadine Zidane and, the greatest one, Diego Maradona. We believe that EA Sports will fix it, adding some of these players during the year.

Eusebio, one of the true football legends


 
 
 

Wrong Ratings

 

In FUT 14 there are 30 regular players with the same rating as legends. It means that, in the future, they could be a legend. Sorry, but comparing Piqué or Fàbregas to a legend don’t seems fair to us. Some of the legends should have a higher rating.

But the only thing wrong with the ratings are not the legends with low ratings. There are players with ratings too high, like it happens with most of the British players. Sorry if you reading from UK, but Owen and Fowler were not so great players as EA Sports says. It is also strange to see two goalkeepers that played by Arsenal in a list that forgot Yashin or, at least, Peter Schmeichel and Michel Preud’homme. The list of wrong ratings is so long…

 
 

Wrong Stats

We tried to forgive EA Sports by not choosing the best players to make part of the FUT 14 Legends, but we can not forgive for the wrong stats. The list of mistakes is really huge, showing that something is wrong with who did this job. Let’s look to three simple examples:

    Maldini was a legend as left-back, not as CB as his card show. He ends his career on the centre but he will be always remember as a wonderful LB.
    Pelé 4 star weak foot ? 95 of pace ? More the older the player is, more mistakes we find.
    Figo is underrated and everyone can see that. He had one fantastic shoot. Not 80, for sure.

 
 

What do you think about these legends ? Is EA Sports making a good job ? Or not ? Please, share your opinion with us in the comments.

  1. We need the first 7 that you mentioned with Eusebio and Di Stefano leading the charge.Those are the two best players of all time, not Pele and Maradona. We also need to see Paul Scholes as he was the best midfileder of his generation. Also Claude Makeleke and Steve Mcmanaman since they were greats.

    1. “We need the first 7 that you mentioned with Eusebio and Di Stefano leading the charge.Those are the two best players of all time, not Pele and Maradona.”
      Finally, someone who really knows about football! Really glad to see your comment. 🙂

  2. Where is MARADONA ? Batistuta ? Zanetti should also be added in the near future since he retired this year

  3. where is cafu? Oliver Khan? Rivaldo? Roberto Carlos? Ronaldo? what about batistuta with like 95 shooting? cantona? Jaap Stam? Edgar Davids?

  4. the only reason that every player that you think should have a legend card in fifa 14 is because if they put every single legend like Beckham, Shearer and so on r because it would get annoying if there were 50+ legends card in one fifa game

  5. Johan Cruyff
    Franz Beckenbauer
    Bobby Charlton
    George Best
    David Beckham
    Ronaldo Luís Nazário
    Zinedine Zidane
    Alan Shearer
    Paul Scholes
    Peter Schmeichel
    Bobby Moore
    Diego Maradona (hate him)

    —-In the near future—-
    Zlatan Ibrahimovic
    Andreas Pirlo
    Ronaldinho
    Steven Gerrard

    I know a few of these players might not be considered legends but… if Sol Campbell is a legend I think these are as well. I also realise quite a few players are English and I may be a little bias 😀 but c’mon Paul Scholes? David Beckham? George Best? o_O They have to be in there! I am in shock that Ronaldo “the phenomenon”, Johan Cruyff and Franz Beckenbauer are not legend cards when Owen, Lineker and Campbell are (although I love these players as well).
    We need more Legends! *fingers crossed for 2015*

  6. I wish that they had a special card for goal of the year award and for the balon’D’or etc…to recognize thhem winning maybe a 99 card?

  7. As a polish person, i’d love to see Zbigniew Boniek’s card, he was the best polish player of all time and the only polish player on Fifa Top 100 list. Also, there are other polish legends like Kazimierz Deyna, Włodzimierz Lubański and Gerard Cieślik, i hope we’ll get at least one of them in future.

  8. I think when super Frankie retires he will get a legend card along with Gerrard,Ronaldinho.

    1. “You may have a different opinion, but probably we all agree that these players are true legends.”
      In my opinion George Best is not in the TOP 10. To be honest I think UK players are overrated.

  9. a lot of those guys are in the ps4 version under the classic xi team. the kaiser -franz bechenbauer. also eric cantona, zico, and Michel Preud’homme were asked about.

    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vix0nemT6Ek at 1:07 has the starters and the subs. i can type out the reserves granted you want.

    no

  10. I’m an Arsenal fan, and I’m not complaining that there are the likes of Ljungberg and Pires in the list but EA should have widened their scope of the legends both time and club wise.. Where is Laudrup, Deschamps, Beckenbauer?

    I think it would also be to their advantage if they made more legends, as long as they decreased their frequency and thus made every legend card much more prized.
