FUT 15 TOTW 11 (Week 11)
The eleventh installment of FIFA 15 Ultimate Team TOTW is a real special one, as Lionel Messi becomes a record breaker and gets a special one-off FUT card that’s shiny blue as EA celebrate his accomplishments in style. Messi became the all-time top score in European football history in mid-week by scoring a total of 74 goals and counting in the Uefa Champions League and achieving the all-time top goalscorer in La Liga BBVA history with his current 253 goals.
The Barcelona and Argentina forward gets a SIF along with Man Utd goalkeeper De Gea, and Juventus and France international Paul Pogba. So there are some really quality acquisitions to the TOTW 11 squad. You can check out the full starting eleven, subs and reserve squad below.

You’ll be able to acquire these players in gold packs if you’re very lucky from 6pm (UK time), on November 26th 2014 up until 5:30pm (UK time), on December 3rd 2014. We highly recommend that you wait until the jumbo 15K, 25K, 35K, 50K, or 100K packs are released by EA Sports first though as that’ll increase your chances of finding these all-important rare players.
You will be able to take on this TOTW squad by challenging them from the main FUT hub when you load up your Ultimate Team game and acquire yourself a few extra coins depending on the difficulty setting you choose. If you select Ultimate difficulty then you’ll pocket a neat 1000 coins plus the match coins too. Now we will give you out our best tips of the week on trading with these specific cards.
Trading Tips Of The Week
One thing is for sure, if you are the luckiest player in the world and you manage to get your hands on that shiny Lionel Messi 95 overall FUT card then you shouldn’t bank on having him in your team for long. We highly recommend that you sell it on quick as not only will he get many more IFS for the rest of the season, but the card value will go down considerably in price as early as January of next year. That is only right around the corner in little under 2 months time and we say this because EA will be releasing the epic TOTY (Team of The Year) cards after the Ballon d’Or ceremony takes place on January 12th 2015.
Messi will likely get a 98 overall rated FUT 15 card and this TOTW 11 card will be still worth a lot, but half it’s price that you could get if you be clever and sell it on quick now whilst it’s value is sky high in the auction rooms. The other player you might want to sell on quick-time is the Paul Pogba SIF (Second In-Form) as he’s a consistent performer and will definitely get in the team of the week again. So if you pack him then put him up for sale on the transfer market ASAP to cash in.
There’s one player that you might want to invest in out of the ones on show this week and that’s none other than Tottenham Hotspur midfielder Christian Eriksen. He’s a BPL (Barclays Premier League) player and there’s a good chance that he may not get another IF this season. This is not a guarantee, but if he doesn’t, and certainly for a good while anyway then you can sell him on when the time is right down the line for a hefty sum and bag yourself a good load of coins.
That’s it for this week but we’ll be back next Wednesday with the next TOTW team and you can stay up to date on all the happy hour information by following us on Google Plus or Twitter.
