Shortly after FIFA 17 was released back in September, one disgruntled player took to Reddit to moan about Jack Butland.
Not because the Stoke City and England goalkeeper was making mistakes in the game, but because he was impossible to score past.
“I’m so sick of playing against Jack Butland every second game!” moaned the player. “He is so good it’s stupid. Is anyone else struggling against him?”
Other FIFA 17 players then spoke up with similar complaints.
“Play him almost every game and it’s making me sick,” wrote one player.
While another said: “Every fan [Premier League] team has him and it’s making me salty”.
