They just don't give up, man
EA Sports Persist with Team of the Week squads
EA Sports have released the 41st edition of FIFA 20 Team of the Week and just like each one since the format came back - it's useless. It actually manages to win the prize for most useless so far, with a single card rated over 86.
Team of the Week 41
This squad is so unremarkable, it's difficult to pick anything up as a stand out. Correction. It's not difficult at all, because there's one card worth caring for even in the slightest. That's the 89-rated David Silva card which would have been kind of good if, once again, we did not have much stronger TOTSSF and Summer Heat cards to choose from.
The rest of this squad is the embodiment of filler. You can see that for yourself below.

EA Sports, Stop It Already!
Now that you've seen the "star-studded" roster of TOTW 41 you might begin to understand where we're coming from. These cards are simply not viable post-TOTSSF. Hell, most of them would have been unusable in February. There's not long to go with most leagues a matchday or two away from their conclusion, but that's one or two TOTWs too many. Just stop it, EA! Stop torturing TOTW and let it die for this season already.
