We are getting closer and closer to what I like to call R-Day, the day Release 2 of FIFA 11 Ultimate Team hits our consoles. One thing to take note of is that there will be a service outage between Feb. 15th and Feb 17th in order to accommodate the update but the WEB APP will be available without interruption. Romily Broad, he of FIFA Podcast fame, has written a very informative article about the upcoming update so make sure you read it if you haven’t already. You can also hear about the update in this week’s FUT podcast!
New FUT features are coming next week! In this week's FUT Podcast Christophe Labrune and Paul Hossack go into more detail about what you can expect to see plus there's another special offer just for podcast listeners that could bag you a gold player premium deal. Don't miss out! Listen now and find out how you can get involved.

The winning commentary , courtesy of BIHOM17
“The two attackers both direct the cross towards goal. The keeper looks puzzled and I'm not surprised. He could have solved a Rubik's cube in the time it took him to understand what just happened there.”
Congratulations to this week’s winners, you will both be awarded 15,000 coins. Here are this week’s finalists:
