How fun is Aston Villa For Your First FIFA 22 Career Mode Save? (Tactics, Players & Match Guide)

hello and welcome back to another video now it’s safe to say there is quite a lot of hype around aston villa on career mode for next year i actually did a poll to see what kind of career mode you guys are going to be doing and aston villa was undoubtedly in first place in this video we’re going to be simulating to see if it’s actually going to be that fun of a career mode now we’re going to put likes of brentford in the premier league and all the other promoted teams just to make it a bit more realistic to what fifa 22 is going to be like and we’ve already updated the transfers for aston villa to have leon bailey emmy buendia and danny ings and also ashley young who recently joined aston villa again from into milan now in the background you’ll be able to see that we are moving norwich into premier league as well and we’re gonna do watford in a minute too and then we’re gonna play the first three or so matches into the league possibly the whole of august in this video it’s going to be pretty exciting and hopefully it gives you a nice insight into what kind of strategies and what kind of tactics you’ll need to incorporate when you are taking over aston villa if you are one of the many people who are going to plan to do an aston villa career mode next year now we’ve turned off the first transfer window because we know we’re already a year behind we can’t be making more transfers on top of these but still i think some of the ai teams did manage to actually make transfers i think jordi alba was at arsenal for example which made my life a lot more difficult than it should normally have been but first thing we’re going to be doing is going into our squad hoop and we’re going to make emily bondear an attacking midfielder he gains an overall rating by doing this and i think it’s also the most representative of where he actually played for norwich last season when i saw them playing my team nottingham forest so let’s get into the team let’s have a look who we’ve got so we’ve got ashley young right there we’ve got bendeer who are going to be playing through the middle of the three we got ings going up front instead of watkins and then we have bailey playing on the right wing we still do have a bit of a hole at left wing we’re gonna be playing elgazi there and treyarch off the bench we’re gonna eventually try and train ollie watkins up to be that left winger i think he did play there a couple of times for brentford in the championship as well i seem to remember we’ve also got ashley young if you really want to play him at left wing i’m going to be training him to be a left back now you can see there is quite a few holes in the squad actually by default you’ll probably play buendia on the right and you’ll play bailey on the left where they both are naturally able to play but then you’ll have a hole at attacking midfielder which is a pretty fun place to actually strengthen to be honest so you could always try and sign someone like a pirate maybe but it’s gonna be something you need to think about if you are planning on doing this career mode next year start thinking about it now which attacking midfielder you’d like to see in your team you’ve got aaron ramsey who’s got a decent amount of potential as well not the aaron ramsey but a different aaron ramsey so he could easily fit in but i do recommend probably just retraining wendy to play there instead thanks to the magic of editing we’re already at our first match and you can see emiliano buendias had a very good preseason four goals in three games is something you always want from your new signings especially in preseason we had a pretty tough competition but speaking of tough games we’re here against tottenham hotspur for the first match of the premier league season hopefully danny yings leon bali and emily wendy can fire us the glory in our first game cutting away for the first 15 minutes when not a lot happened we can see ashley young is starting at right back against gareth bale now we pause the game i’m not sure why but we get right back into the action and gareth bale is doing a classic gareth bale run before a classic gareth bale pass the hurricane who does a classic harry kane goal now one note down not a great start but we do still have the default defenders well you’ll probably be strengthening there as well really they’ve only strengthened on the wings and up front which while being exciting to see this talent come into the premier league isn’t actually going to make too much of a difference when you’re playing against these better clubs of course you’ve got a bit more pace because by he’s got 90 pace compared to greelish’s something like 78 i think but danny ings is going to make a difference when he’s going through on goal like that and unfortunately he’s done the worm yeah what a way to introduce yourself to the whole end by doing the worm in front of them he’s going to have another chance here after a rebound but elder viewers is going to beat him in the air maybe you’re going to need a striker who’s a bit better in the air of course you do have wesley on the bench who is decent but you might want to invest in a more traditional target man someone in the mould of an andy carroll but obviously not andy carroll because he’s a bit injury prone harry kane showing that his target man abilities there pretty good but his finishing not as good as it would be in real life and we’ve weathered that storm you can really see this is the story of this first match tottenham dominating is in midfield tottenham on the ball tottenham playing it through to harry kane harry kane missing one-on-ones but son unfortunately first does not miss no they’ve got two players of that kind of finishing ability that we’ve probably only got ings who can finish at that level there’s no chance that buendia and especially bai are going to be on the level as someone like ason especially not in their first season maybe if they have two or three really good seasons in the premier league they could get that kind of potential but not straight away so i think a lot of people really are over hyping these transfers for aston villa especially on fifa now they will start off with quite a bit of money from this um jack greenish sale and you are going to have to use whatever remains of it to strengthen the rest of your squad because people like john mcginn they’re good but they’re not going to be sort of premier league european football level on fifa anytime soon danny ings as well is not a traditional fifa level player he’s got good finishing good positioning but they don’t really matter on fifa all that matters on fifa is pace so you again you’re probably going to want to play someone like leon bailey through the middle which we did try but you can see gareth bale’s now going through the middle and showing the kind of thing that a winger playing upfront can do where he makes it 3-1 late into the game we’ve actually subbed off most of our new players we’ve got trezor gay playing through the middle now and i think wendy has gone over to the right so we are gonna need a little bit more depth if we want to challenge in europe like i said especially in defense that’s another area i think you need to think of where you’re going to strengthen there are a couple of good options in the championship but i won’t tell you what their ratings are because obviously these will have changed by the time you have a career mode save on fifa 22 but look out for people like rob dickey he’s going to be very tall but probably not the quickest he’ll be good in the air though could be something good depending on his rating next year you could have someone like joe warrell who’s possibly moving to southampton in real life anyway so it wouldn’t be an option for you on fifa or you could look at one of swansea’s three very young centre-backs who are all very talented but we’re going into another game against a different north london team this time we’ve moved from spurs and we’re playing against arsenal we’re actually going to change to a more narrow formation i think a four three one two just to try and get a bit more control over the midfield it really does suit us to try and block up that middle of the pitch douglas lewis was a very effective player mcginn is good box to box and bundia is a decent playmaker when you play him deep in midfield so that kind of combination is probably something you’ll see in real life with them as well if they play a 4-3-3 you could easily have when dear in the middle is a bit more advanced then you have mcginn box the box on the left and douglas though is playing as the defensive midfielder on the right but yeah you can see there that arsenal do have a couple of stronger players than they would in real life but we’re going to still give it a go i mean jordi alba against leonby it’s going to be pretty even on pace and i think by he’s got a bit more strength so we’ve still got a bit of a good chance of getting past him once or twice and that’s all you need when you’ve got someone like danny yings in the box knowing the frailties that arsenal have as well might not be fully represented on fifa just yet but expect them to be a lower rated team next year as well so even if you decide not to do an aston villa save after the series maybe rebuilding arsenal to the level they used to be out when they had thierry henry and robert perez lumberg berkamp that kind of level could be an interesting save because all of those players i think should be high 80s low 90s and in omri’s case probably mid 90s he was just that good so there is a good chance for you to rebuild arsenal instead of aston villa but anyway we’re playing aston villa in this one and we get through with leon bailey good chip of the goalkeeper but unfortunately we don’t go ahead because he is offside not too bad of a run good pass to pick him out from ings as well but yeah if you look at the replay it’s just offside we do need to try and play it out from the back a little bit here as well because the height of ings and the aerial ability of bundy and bailey is absolutely terrible we were never going to win any aerial ball even against someone like kieran tierney who’s obviously a left back playing at centre-back something that’s really effective and annoying to play against on this game but buendia has got a little bit of space from david lewis and he’s slotted in the corner i thought he was probably the best finisher of the three even though his stats aren’t that great compared to someone like danying’s i think he’s got high eighties for finishing when diaz isn’t that great but he is good at shooting i think it’s probably more to do with his agility and his balance stats meaning that he can get the ball out of his feet a little bit easier than someone like danny ing’s and then from there you have a bit of an easier shot but we can see target here out running picayo saka which is pretty incredible when you think about it putting in a decent cross to buendia and the header is saved but yep that’s the first half completed we go in one nil ahead against arsenal at home which is pretty good when you think about it arsenal are still a decent team on fifa with a lot of pace which the ai is pretty good at using as well especially when they’re midfield and defense includes thomas party geordie alba aubameyang martinelli even have erdegaard still and hopefully he will come back because i did enjoy watching him in the premier league but really look at that that’s just typical arsenal in real life that is odigo just didn’t want to score and then saka couldn’t quite get in there but skipping a little bit further ahead again chambers and sakura linking up well on the wing before nakamba wins it back for us gives it to target target to douglas who is who like i said i was pretty impressed about and we do actually win an aerial ball like i was saying we wouldn’t earlier luiz again wins it off party which is pretty cool as well because party is one of the strongest midfielders on the game matty cash my favorite right back in the premier league gets the ball kenny cuts inside and he does possibly the worst left footed finesse shot i’ve ever seen but yeah i think right back is one area you won’t need to strengthen in defense left back is pretty slow center backs are not great either goalkeeping situation is good so your defense is almost there you just need maybe one left back and another center back to partner konzer or ming’s depending on what kind of footballer you prefer arsenal then go on to score this insane goal aubameyang celebrates by running over to arteta and doing a flip in front of him i’m not sure if this is to show dominance or if it’s just something they planned earlier we carry on and it’s going to be a one one i think here because we’re not gonna outrun sakura or tierney with watkins even though he’s fresh kieran tierney’s still got the pace on him so the ref just calls an end to it brings our misery to an end and it’s a one-on-one draw against arsenal in the long term of things you probably would expect aston villa to beat arsenal in real life but unfortunately on the save we didn’t manage it going over to leicester city and i think this is going to be another home game for us so we’re going to be expecting to finally pick up our first win in this match leicester again are probably better than arsenal and about the same level as spurs obviously harry kane and son don’t have equivalents in the leicester team but it’s still going to be a tricky game even if we are at home we do have the home advantage so getting straight into this ollie watkins is playing now on the left wing as the left wing forward bailly on the right ings in the middle and then buendia playing further back douglas the wiz and mcginn are a very good combination in my opinion and you can see look at the mcginn box the box there he was actually getting into the box in the third minute that’s how desperate he is to get a goal they’ve got ianacho and vadi at front which is always going to be tough to play against probably harder than aubameyang but danny ings really should be scoring there with the ability that he has and the price tag that came on him but vardy runs away with it there old brighton’s out on the wing ashley young’s playing left back for us here because i think i wanted a little bit more pace than target had so we put jung back there and hopefully we can go on a few good runs with him with his better dribbling better skills a little bit better pace and probably better crossing as well but leon bali’s got the ball there and he repays the favor that ings gave him in the last game and ings managed to actually finish and be on side this time a good goal all round good to see two of our new signings fully linking up if you are planning on doing this save on fifa 22 please do let me know who you would sign because i’m always pretty interested to see how much you guys plan out in advance especially the first save that’s a pretty important one first save you doing a game is always going to be the new fun one where all the features are new and you get to see all these new players you don’t know who’s got what potential so do let me know who you’re planning on signing as we see ourselves slip to a 1-1 draw again if you’re watching this video and you weren’t planning on playing as aston villa do let me know who you’re planning on playing instead personally i want to go with knock and forest because that’s my favorite team so if you’re going with your favorite team just let me know who they are or if you’re going to go with some random team maybe you want to go with someone from one of my videos where like viscera cacao or ipswich town you’ve never actually seen either of these teams play do let me know because i would love to know if i’m influencing the kind of players and teams that you guys are using yet again ings has missed a pretty easy one-on-one and you can see our mr manager character is not very happy with that really it should be probably 3-1 maybe 4-1 depending on the chances but that’s a bit of a rickless tackle from douglas there is and it’ll go into the book so we’ll have to ease off on our challenges for the rest of the game so we don’t end up with 10 men something that aston villa will want to not happen in real life as well madison’s really good at free kicks on fifa especially with the ai and they do nearly manage to score despite the distance brendan rodgers looking a little bit pensive there that that didn’t go in so ashley young now pushing forwards a little bit douglas is still playing even though he’s on a yellow and it’s the 77th minute we nearly managed to get through there with ings but fardy turns around good tackle from konzer i really do like konzer i think i prefer him to mings he’s just got a bit of a better body type despite being a bit shorter so watkins is now dribbling around we’ve got el ghazi playing on the wing treyori on the other wing and buendia is playing through the middle now so you can see we’ve taken off both ings and bae they don’t really have the best stamina especially with the way aston villa play by default where they do like to not retain too much stamina they just burn it all by pressing especially someone like john mcginn who’s got really high stamina it seems like the system’s built for players like him and not people like danny ings and leon bali who both have pretty low staminas to be honest but in the last couple of minutes here we’re gonna try and see it out for another draw and you can see we’ve played three games and we’ve got two points from it to be honest they were pretty tough games and this is going to be a pretty easy game because it’s wickham in the cup and we’ve decided to have a look at some of the youth prospects that you can expect in your team on fifa so let’s have a look who’s in our youth prospect team you’ve got louis barry who was linked with a bunch of teams after he made his debut last year or maybe two years ago now we’ve got ramsey through the middle who’s pretty good young attacking midfielder morgan sansone is definitely not a youth player but he’s going to be playing for us but barry with a pretty interesting shot there was pretty mean the way he hit that could have gone in uh we’ve got nakamura playing midfield we’ve got end girls playing so not entirely youth prospects because we didn’t have a full team of them you know el mohammadi courtney house they’re not young players but we did want to give at least louis barry go and keenan davis up front he’s built massive i mean he’s just a huge player as ramsey puts his one nil ahead after 17 minutes the physicality the pace the strength everything about keenan davies points towards him being a really good fifa player and honestly i think he is he’s got potential to be really good on this game and i did enjoy using him in this he might not be the fastest he might not be the strongest but you see there he did almost get a red card i think i’m not sure that was given as a red card somehow he’s throwing gold he’s just been shipped over but yeah he’s just a very good player if you’re managing in the lower leagues maybe league one or league two do try and give him a signing because i think he’d be a very effective player at both of those levels i know a couple of championship clubs have been linked with him in real life but don’t hesitate to give davis a go we bought on trezegay for a bit more pace on the wings because we were actually suffering and probably should be behind wickham would have the ball bobbling in the box after a corner and just not actually kicked the ball in despite it being a super easy chance so we survived a couple of scares like that and thankfully we’ve got some of our better players on now such as morgan sansone and i really do like that goal i like the passing there i thought it was a pretty good one i do like this player as well he was used to be really good on one of the old ultimate teams but yeah samsung’s good keenan davis is good i did like using louis barry but i did expect a little bit more what what more can you expect though he’s a teenager and he’s only sort of low 60s rating so you can’t expect him to be messy but i did expect him to be a little bit more effective i thought ramsay was the better player and i definitely thought davis was but you can see louis barry here getting through jacobson has he got enough pace he’s just had a shot from a wide angle and it’s an easy save in the last couple of minutes we’re tuned alert so we are just trying to basically reserve stamina of some of these young players and just keep the player average ratings up so they develop a little bit better but we’ve got nakamba he’s been a bit of a destroyer in midfield you can see there he’s destroyed a little bit too hard though and giving away a free kick on the edge of the box you know how the ai are with free kicks and they’ve got their centre-back jacobson over it and they’ve just brought an akan fennel if you look at the top so they just put it straight in the corner now that guy i don’t think he’s got great free kicks and really we have our first choice goalkeeper in goal still so i’m not sure what’s going on there a couple of minutes later corner and they finally do actually just head it in i mean what an annoying goal this is an annoying game to be honest this one but yeah straight to penalties so we saved the first one thankfully trez on the second one slots at home easy good penalty that one mccleary x forest and reading player straight down the middle i know they’re good penalty but we’ve dived out the way of it now wesley brought him on bit of target man up front good finish can martin has saved akinfenwa’s penalty so he’s just tried to hit it with too much power he’s got too much strength that he’s tried to break the goal and it’s not quite come off morgan sensen scored in normal time and his chip was saved in a penalty shootout we’ve got fred onyedema who hits the post and out so we need to score this one all sub’s got a real face which is pretty cool ollie watkins of course was in the england squad for the euros gets saved by olsop a goalkeeper who now plays for derby county i believe at the bottom of the championship and then finally wheeler misses all together so we win on penalties somehow and we managed to stay in the league cup despite playing a pretty strong team at the end we did actually crumble and concede too but i mean what what can you do when the ai wants to score a corner or a free kick there’s nothing you can really do to stop them but anyway that’s the leak up done but back to premier league football and we’re going to be heading to london yet again where we’re going to be playing against a certain west ham united now you can see the bubbles here on next year and i think that’s pretty cool pretty cool feature but they did go on for a bit too long and they were a bit distracting so i won’t be doing a west ham career mode on ps5 this year that is for sure they’ve probably got a similar level team to us with a couple of standout players in rice and stuck playing in defense midfield but we’ve got our standout players playing up front so it’s going to be a real direct battle to see who’s better they get an early chance and really should be scoring but martinez is a really good goalkeeper but definitely a position you don’t need to strengthen antonio is probably better than ings to be honest on fifa he’s got a lot more pace and similar level of finishing somehow so i would rather have antonio than ings which is an insane thing to say in real life but yeah that’s how it is on fifa unfortunately could be a potential signing for you in the second season but anyway matty keshkin out wide and i’ll finally while this game’s going on give you my review of if this is actually a fun career mode personally i did enjoy it i do like the players leon bailey was one of my favorite wingers when he was in the bundesliga because leverkusen are my favorite team in the bundesliga so i enjoyed that he plays for those um i like that danny ings plays first as well he’s a good finisher he’s not really a player that a lot of people have used on fifa either because like i said you’ll go for someone like antonio instead of a danny ings and wendy has always been a player that i’ve been annoyed to see line up against my favorite team norman forrest in the championship so in one way i’m glad that we’ll probably never play against a premier league aston villa with wendirin but i’m also sad that that kind of quality has left the championship because he really was a level above every other playmaker in the league in terms of the actual career mode i think you’ve got some fun positions to sign new players for centre-back possibly a backup striker or another winger always going to be fun to strengthen these areas with players that you like maybe you want some small fast sense back so you like the big brutes that are captain material and just run up from the back and head but people oh that would have been a good goal from jung but unfortunately it’s crossbar um people like ashley young yeah i like it when older players do return to the teams always fun to see that um people like andy reid at forest iron always enjoyed that one if ronaldo went back to manu you’d get the same kind of feeling because you know club legend returning but yeah ashley young one of the standout players maybe try and get something like a james milner as well although he did kind of burn his bridges i believe when he left aston villa to go to liverpool but i think if you do an aston villa career mode you’ll have quite a lot of fun you’ll use your new players you’ve got real stadium of course because you’re in the premier league aston villa have a really good history as well so you’ve got a lot of things to try and emulate if it’s european football success or bringing youth players through or just just generally reading about their youth team you know just how how they get on with that kind of thing give it a go i mean if you’re interested in the team i can’t stop you from using them so it’s worth a try i’m not sure i’d make them my first save because i think they’ll probably be better as maybe a third or fourth save where you sort of know the game a little bit better and you won’t get fired because you you’ve got a high rated team and they’re not actually that great on fifa which is the case for aston villa unfortunately this year um so you will have to make a couple of signings in the first transfer window like i said just strengthen center back and winger and you’ll be fine hopefully you do enjoy um this video hopefully you do enjoy using your career mode on fifa 22. i think everyone’s starting to get a little bit excited about the game now which is good i’ve not actually read too much about it so it’s almost all of a surprise to me um but yeah hopefully you subscribe to this channel because i’ll be doing a lot more content for the rest of fifa 21 and also of course fifa 22. we give the ball away very stupidly there on the edge box but douglas though is what an absolute terrier he is in midfield and yeah that’s the end of this match and unfortunately it’s the end of this video because um yeah there’s not much more to say than what i’ve been saying for the last 23 and 25 seconds so yeah subscribe if you want to see more videos like this check out my second channel if you want to watch more gameplay videos and i will see you very shortly for more episodes on fifa 22 hope you enjoyed this video thank you for watching this far if you did and i’ll see you very soon cheers
