Southampton sack Mauricio Pellegrino as manager after less than a year – collectionfifatips.com

The FC guys answer your tweets on how David Silva stacks up with the best players in the Prem, if Barca can go unbeaten in La Liga and the leading candidates to replace Mauricio Pellegrino.

Southampton have sacked Mauricio Pellegrino as manager, the Premier League club announced on Monday.

Pellegrino was hired on a three-year deal in June of 2017 after Claude Puel was let go at the club. He had previously been at Alaves.

Saints were beaten 3-0 at Newcastle on Saturday and lie just one place and one point above the relegation zone.

Southampton have won just one of their last 17 league matches — against bottom club West Brom — with this weekend’s defeat proving to be the final straw.


Assistant manager Carlos Compagnucci and assistant first-team coach Xavier Tamarit have also parted company with the south coast club.

A Southampton statement read: “We would like to place on record our thanks to Mauricio, Carlos and Xavier for their efforts during their time with Southampton, and wish them well for the future.

“The club will look to appoint a new management team as soon as possible, with the search for a replacement already under way.”

Saints will be hoping to appoint Pellegrino’s successor quickly, with an FA Cup quarter-final at Wigan looming on Sunday.

They then face a crunch clash with relegation rivals West Ham at the London Stadium on March 31.

Former Hull and Watford boss Marco Silva has been installed as the favourite for the vacancy with bookmakers.

Pellegrino, 46, played for Barcelona, Valencia and Liverpool as a player, while his coaching career has included stints in charge of Valencia, Estudiantes and Independiente.

Press Association contributed to this report.

collectionfifatips | Players from Other Sports That We Want to See in FIFA

Usain Bolt FIFA

Usain Bolt FIFA

It’s no secret that Usain Bolt fancies himself as a bit of a footballer. And the fact that he has secured himself a trial at Borussia Dortmund this coming March proves just how right the developers of FIFA 18 were to put him in the game. But it got us thinking; are there players from other sports that we want to see on FIFA? Of course, there are.

Head over to the NBA, and you can take your pick of any major player there. Hand him the goalkeeper jersey, and you’re safe as houses, right? Well, in theory, yes, but remember, there’s a lot more to goalkeeping that height. You also need to be good with your feet, and Joel Embiid of the Philadelphia 76ers has the skills. He’s played football all his life and was at the Champions League Final last season. And at seven feet, no one is chipping him.

The Rugby Union has some fast players, but there are few that can claim to be faster than Usain Bolt himself. And one of those few is England player Jonny May, who recorded an incredible 10.49 meters per second in a recent speed test over 40 meters. That speed would see him break the world 100-meter record. Six Nations’ odds have England as the favorites for the championship, and with May in the team, you can understand why. This guy is not only as fast as Bolt, but he’s powerfully built and tall. Defenders would bounce off him. If Didier Drogba were as fast as Usain Bolt, his name would be Jonny May.

Back to the States, we go to the NFL. We’re thinking a strong center-half in the mold of Razor Ruddock, but perhaps in slightly better condition. A tight end in the NFL would do the job nicely, and Rob Gronkowski is the best there is. He’s big, he’s strong and he’s mobile. No light-on-his-feet Messi is getting past the Gronk, and he’d eat Neymar for breakfast.

Now you may not know this, but there are quite a few tennis players who are quick on their feet. Nadal and Djokovic are notorious for indulging in soccer tennis at exhibition matches while Federer allegedly had to choose either soccer or tennis as his chosen sport. Apparently, he was that good at both. We’d like to see Nadal on the pitch though; he’s got that fiery temper that would make him a good character who might earn himself the odd red card.

For the pure comedic value of it, we’d love to see just about any WWE wrestler on the pitch. Now wrestling and soccer have crossed paths before. Stuart Tomlinson played between the sticks for Port Vale and Burton Albion before signing up as a pro wrestler. He’s back playing for Altrincham now, so he might not get into FIFA anytime soon. So, who would we want to see? The Rock, John Cena, The Undertaker? Doesn’t really matter who, this would be totally worth it just for a laugh.

So, what about the other sports? Darts, snooker, golf? Who are the stars from other sports that you’d most like to see in FIFA 19? Of all those we mentioned above, we reckon Jonny May would be the most successful, although Nadal just might push him for a place in the matchday squad.

FIFA 18 Winter OTW Players Full List – collectionfifatips.com

EA Sports have revealed the full winter OTW (Ones To Watch) cards and the lineup has some of the best players involved. These black cards are new players who’ve recently transferred from one club to another in the January transfer window and who could do well for their new clubs.

FIFA 18 One To Watch Winter Players

FIFA 18 One To Watch Winter Players

If you manage to pack or buy any of these players then you will be hoping that they get an IF (in-form) in numerous TOTW’s as each time they do, they’ll automatically increase in stats and base overall rating.

The likes of Ross Barkley, Theo Walcott, Van Dijk, Mkhitaryan and Coutinho to name just a few who are available. There are also loads of SBC’s that have been released by EA at the moment too but they won’t be out for long!

There’s squad building challenges for both the winter and summer OTW players where you will be guaranteed a OTW player in a pack but you have to submit one yourself to get an untradeable version or a one to watch and TOTW player to get a tradeable version.

The best way to make coins from this promo is to target a few players that you think will increase dramatically if they get just one in-form and watch matches live. Then as soon as a forward gets a brace or more, then buy it ASAP.

If it’s a defender then usually one goal does the trick and the card should then be upgraded on the following Wednesday. Check back for more FIFA 18 tips and make sure to follow us on social media to stay up to date.

collectionfifatips | FIFA 18 Peter Schmeichel Icon SBC Cheapest Solution

This is the very first ever Prime Icon SBC we’re covering for FIFA 18 and it’s the Peter Schmeichel card up first. In this tutorial guide you’ll find out the simplest and cheapest solution to get the legendary Danish goalkeeper. Check out the full HD video below to learn more.

Starting from his early days and all the way through his career we showcase all the SBCS all the way to the 86 rated team. Detailed below are all the squad building challenges you need to complete to be awarded this very special card.

  • Brøndby IF
  • Sporting CP
  • Premier League
  • Denmark
  • 84 Rated Team
  • 85 Rated Team
  • 86 Rated Team

Remember that you will also be awarded packs for every SBC that you complete so that will hopefully help in getting some of the cost down. The entire cost put together to complete this icon SBC is around 380K coins.

As for how good the actual card is in-game, well there are mixed reviews on it but i will say that he is incredibly good at one on one shot stopping but he lacks a real desire to get Arial balls when crosses are whipped in to the middle. He’s also not very good at saving long shots from far out which is disappointing.

It’s worth getting it if not for the sheer reason to at least put it towards another icon SBC that requires you to submit an icon in any position. Make sure you’re subbed to the official YouTube channel and check back here for more icon squad building challenges that will be coming soon.

FIFA 18 Marc Overmars Icon SBC Cheapest Solution – collectionfifatips.com

So here is another FIFA 18 prime icon squad building challenge and the player that we’re helping you to get at the cheapest price is Marc Overmars. This is the cheapest solution where you will save thousands of coins by doing it the cheap way. You’ll need around 380K coins on Xbox and around 400K for PlayStation in your club and you can watch the full HD video guide below.

The following SBC’s are the ones that you will need to complete in-order to get the untradeable Overmars special Icon.

  • Eredivisie
  • Arsenal
  • FC Barcelona
  • 83 rated team
  • 84 rated team
  • 85 rated team
  • 86 rated team

The cheapest SBC will be the Eredivisie whilst the 86 rated team will be by far the most expensive but copying the exact players that i submit you’ll end up saving loads and getting the player for a bargain price.

As for Overmars, i actually have it in my team and it’s a fantastic card! Some icon cards are not that great but this one if very good and even if you do not get along with it and don’t quite fancy it then you can still submit it into other icon SBC’s to acquire another icon down the line.

The stand out attribute is by far the 95 pace which is frightening and i can tell you that he is lightning fast and is great on the left wing. Make sure to subscribe to the official YouTube channel to stay up to date and see when all the new videos are uploaded to the channel. More FIFA 18 tips to come on the website soon so check back periodically as the site is updated.

This week’s Shutterbug title goes to clasicK. Congratulations!

Welcome

We’re currently on the eve of the upcoming server merge. If you haven’t already heard, overflow servers from our recent free weekend will be merging to their new official homes. You can learn more about this in our official server merge thread. We’re also bringing back player surveys! If you’re new to GRAV, we ran player surveys before the Reborn update and many of the additions to Reborn were directly influenced by these surveys. We’re working on the next big update for GRAV and we think it’s a perfect time to get our surveys going again. More information about these surveys can be found at the end of this post. However, we had a lot of excellent base submissions this week, so let’s get this show on the road.

Creator Overlord of The Week

This week’s title of Creator Overlord of The Week goes to KatFrog for their really intricate main base that even includes an indoor race track! We also want to note that this week’s Creator Overlord and Shutterbug will be forever immortalized on our Facebook page in their own album of champions. All future winners will be added to these albums as well.

GRAV Community QA

This week’s QA thread didn’t receive much love, so we only have a couple questions to include in this post. If you have any GRAV related questions, don’t hesitate to ask them in the official QA thread here: http://steamcommunity.com/app/332500/discussions/0/492378265881640924/. We look at every question submitted in this thread, so don’t not post because of the possibility of not being seen. With that being said, here are answers to a couple questions recently submitted:

Jon S – I was curious as to where i might have the best chance to find a Unicorn hat?

Answer: Here’s a hint, you must be rank 300, and it might help if you hummed this song to yourself in a high level area: https://youtu.be/gOmJLk1lu08?t=80

=VAC=Killers – How close are we to seeing NPC’s giving quests and missions finally?

Answer: Our next big push is all about NPCs and quests! We don’t have any dates for you yet, but we’re working on it now.

Player Surveys

We are excited to start our player surveys again. For those of you that don’t know, player surveys are a way for us to get structured feedback from you. We also include a section in each survey for specific ideas/suggestions. This is another great way to make your voice heard. It’s also very helpful for us. It not only helps us improve GRAV, but it also helps us improve our community.

If you are interested in participating in our player surveys, simply send an email to me at: logan.williams@nullbitmonstergames.com with the subject line “GRAV Survey”.
