Is Someone at EA Taking The **** Out of Manolas?

I know he's an out and out defender, but the guy is a top level professional footballer, can his shooting really be as bad as that? He has the worst shooting of any gold outfielder on the game! They've given him 10 finishing - Tony Hibbert has never once scored a professional goal and even he has 12 finishing. There are only 20 gold keepers with worse finishing! I've seen a video of Manolas scoring a goal in the box with his foot, surely that alone warrants higher than 10 finishing? Where do they get this stuff?

    Don't know how good he is since I don't watch Serie A that much. But perhaps he misses alot from corners etc?

    Funny enough u scored a long shot with him last night. It was a corner I placed outside the box. Someone passed it back and he received and shot it. I won 2-0 after I scored with Pogba.

    That alone deserves more than 10 finishing surely. If Hibbert has 12 for never scoring!

    10 is CRAZY low though. On a scale of 1 to 99, I think some of my friends would actually warrant higher than 10 finishing - none of whom are professional footballers.

    The real question is why is it so important to you that he's got low finishing :lol:
    There are many players with stats that makes you think they're just random

    ^ this. I'm sure they set some stats for players to a random number which can be auto filled between certain numbers to speed up the process. some bronze/silver nonrare players for example have very random stats.

    Pepe just scored an out of the box volley (a la zidane) after a corner on me

    Played two games yesterday and my Manolas scored 2 goals, both finess shots after corners... so that 10 could be 99 ingame... in 30 games only did those two shots with him both got in... go figure...

    There's another one I've seen now - on every previous game Kagawa had 62 or 61 shot power. This game he suddenly has 42 - the lowest of any gold midfielder! How feeble was his shooting last season to warrant a 20 downgrade in power?? He still managed to find the net 6 times with his apparently ****-weak shots. :lol:

    I had Kagawa for maybe 40-50 games and never noticed any apparent weak shot power: smashes them just like any other player. It really makes a mockery of this stat.

    I'd say 14 finishing rating would be fair based on that clip so EA is not very far off.

    Kamil Glik scored 7 goals at CB last year and they gave him 11 Finishing.

    2013/14 season: 2 goals in 34 matches -> 21 Finishing in FUT15
    2014/15 season: 7 goals in 32 matches -> 11 Finishing in FUT16

    I don't know how that makes any sense, but apparently one person thought he deserved a downgrade.

    The headding acc and jumping are not enough?

    About Glik. Even with 11 FIN he is insane on corners.

    If all of those goals were from headers it's only the heading accuracy they'll look at

    True, most of Glik's goals were with his head, but consider this:

    2013/14 season: 12 total shots with his feet, 1 goal with his feet
    2014/15 season: 6 total shots with his feet, 2 goals with his feet

    It's not a great total, but respectable for a CB in a top league. It doesn't make sense for Manolas, among the 10,000+ players in FUT, to have the absolute worst finishing in FUT, or for Glik to be tied for the 2nd worst finishing in FUT.

    Back on Manolas - according to WhoScored, he has only had 5 non-headed shots in the last four seasons (including the current one) - and scored with 2 of them. Not a bad ratio!

    Glik in the last five seasons - 25 shots with his feet, 3 goals. Manolas should have better finishing than him then!

    Manolas missed an absolute sitter for me in the box after a corner. I chuckled when I remembered viewing this thread.
