Picking a premier league team is something weve…

Picking a Premier League team is something we’ve talked and written a lot about. For almost a decade, GFOP Nicholas Sandilands has been torn between Arsenal and Manchester City. His love for Arsenal stems from the team’s 2005 jersey. His love for City born of the swagger of his favorite band, Oasis.  

Two weeks ago, Nicholas won Men in Blazers and EA Sports FIFA Fans First contest. Not only did EA Sports give Nick a trip to NYC, incredible prizes and a first look at FIFA ‘15, it stirred Nicholas’ inner-Premier League conflict further. From Nicholas:  

After winning this contest, I knew I was in trouble. The good folks at EA did it up real nice, got some quality time testing out FIFA15.  The gameplay was clutch, and the graphics were amazing. Fans of FIFA will not be disappointed with the new upgrades and how they have made the game even more realistic.

Got to mingle with NYCFC’s man with the perfect hair David Villa (they have done an uncanny job perfectly replicating it in FIFA 15), and watch Jack Rodwell and Boyata paste some dudes on FIFA. 


It was surreal meeting David Villa, it was a huge surprise from the EA folks when he entered the room, and everyone was in awe of his star power and his perfectly coiffed hair. Surprisingly, he picked Barca as his team when he played the game.


Got some amazing City swag, great seats for the game, and posed with the EPL trophy in my new City kit. Now what do I do? I’m being tugged in opposite directions, red or blue, Sanchez or Aguero, Giroud or Jovetic, Wenger or Pellegrini?
