The world of football (erm, soccer) is banding together to protest against hate speech on social media platforms. FIFA, EA Sports, and Football Manager developer Sports Interactive are among those that have joined the English Football League in a social media boycott.

The boycott will run from Friday, April 30 through Monday, May 3, during which time the greater world of footballing will pause posting to Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube.

In a blog post, England’s Premier League says that social media companies must do more to address online discriminatory abuse received by players and those in the broader community. It outlines some suggestions for platforms to address hate speech, including filtering out abusive content and preventing banned users from registering new accounts.

EA Sports has had its own problems, recently revealing it has banned more than 9,000 players from FIFA 21 over the use of inappropriate team names, like one called “I Kante breath.” Computers still aren’t smart enough to catch all these tricks on their own.

'Racist behaviour of any form is unacceptable and the appalling abuse we are seeing players receive on social media platforms cannot be allowed to continue,” said Premier League chief executive Richard Masters. “The Premier League and our clubs stand alongside football in staging this boycott to highlight the urgent need for social media companies to do more in eliminating racial hatred.”

Research finds that boycotts are rarely effective at hurting a company’s bottom line. But the social media companies have been working to address hate speech on their own as more people move to semi-private communication platforms, like Snapchat and Telegram.

New tools — Instagram last week introduced stricter penalties for abusive messages, and will let users choose to automatically filter direct messages in their inboxes using both the company’s list of harmful words and with user-generated lists of keywords. Instagram claims that blocked users will have a harder time contacting people under new accounts. Effectively much of what English football is asking for.

TikTok has added anti-bullying tools in the past month as well, giving users the option to screen comments left on their posts before they can be seen by anyone else. Twitter automatically hides some harmful tweets and gives users the ability to limit who can reply to their tweets.

Tools that require users add keywords or screen comments are flawed in that they put the responsibility on users to screen the speech that may be causing them harmful psychological effects. All of these platforms say manual tools are part of a multi-pronged strategy that includes automatic filtering.

Every year, Fifa players groan about EA Sport’s lack of development in their game – especially career mode. But is this the year that Fifa will finally rival football manager?

With the release of FIFA 21 Beta mode, we can now compare the two games under three different sections: Match simulation/ gameplay, transfers/ player development and schedule planning/ training.

Match Simulation/ gameplay

One of the areas of Career mode gameplay that EA have really advanced is match simulation. Where before, when simulating a game, the 90 minutes would last about 5 seconds, now there is the option to change tactics, make your own substitutions and control the game. My ip wan.

But how does this compare to Football Manager? It’s extremely unlikely that EA will add the amount of detail and options to the team management during gameplay that FM has. On top of this, FM simulation has better graphics and visual effects. However, Fifa also has the option to play the game manually, and because of this, I think that Fifa may be able to rival FM in this area of the games.

Transfers/ player development

A couple of years ago, Fifa added the realistic view of transfer negotiations between club representatives and also with players’ agents. Despite this, the real criticism of the negotiations was the lack of different options e.g loan to buy. However, yet again Fifa have made improvements, with that specific option set to be implemented into the game.
Another big development is the addition of advanced player development in Fifa. While before this was never an option, now you can change the positions of players. Despite this, FM still boasts the superior options under this section. Not only can you develop players to play different positions, you can also change what type of player they are e.g Ball winning midfielder to Deep-lying playmaker. Another option that FM contains is the opportunity for managers to ask experienced veterans to mentor younger prospects. FM also gives you the option to privately or publicly praise, discuss or criticise players.

Schedule planning/ training

Fifa 21 Vs Football Manager

This year, Fifa have introduced a new option to the ‘Calendar’ section. You can now plan training sessions and rest days – with these affecting player morale and energy levels. There is also interesting improvements to the planning section of training sessions. These additions will make the game mode feel a lot more realistic, which may well mean that it will challenge FM on that front!

I think everyone can agree that Fifa’s eventual improvements of Career mode have been a long time coming, and it looks like they’ve done a good job. The added options will allow players to really experience the job of a real life coach – just like FM.
If there is ever going to be a year that you buy a copy of Fifa to play career mode, this is it. But don’t get me wrong, even with all these improvements, it’s going to take a lot more for EA to get their game to Football managers‘ level.
