As FIFA announce FIFA Street cover star Lionel Messi as winner of the Ballon D’or 2011, EA SPORTS announce the improved ratings of the goalkeeper and defenders from this year’s Ultimate Team of the Year for FIFA 12.

IF Ramos and Vidic  FIFA 12 Ultimate Team Of The Year 2011 IF Ramos and VidicThese are this years must have In Form players and if you’re lucky enough to find one in a pack you can expect them to fetch mega bucks on the transfer market.

The Ultimate Team of the Year is being released in stages so we’re going to have to wait for the midfielders and attackers statistics and with Robin Van Persie and Neymar both having great years we’re really keen to see who makes EA SPORTS’ TOTY substitute list.

We will update this post as soon as the midfielder and attacker’s In Form ratings are released.

The Ultimate Team of the Year goalkeeper and defenders are available in packs on console or through the Ultimate Team Web App NOW until Saturday 14th January at 6pm GMT.

TOTY 2011 Substitutes

It’s been confirmed that there’ll be no substitutes in this year’s Team of the Year which is a shame.  It’s always nice to get a few wild cards thrown in.  I haven’t ruled out an IF Heskey before the Summer though!

Previous team’s of the year include the English Leagues (Barclays Premiership) TOTY, Most Consistent But Never In Form TOTY and the Northern European TOTY.

Do you agree with the 2011 Ultimate Team of the Week?  Who would have made your team?
