    I think most people know keepers are terrible with long shots but are amazing in the box.

    There's actually nothing wrong with that long shot - the GK was off his line. Happens all the time IRL.

    How can you actually defend that? Why was he off his line? That definitely doesnt happen all the time IRL. Long shots and goal keepers are both incredibly broken.

    Define "all the time." This is just another example of ea going overboard. I'm starting to think it's the parent company telling them to do it. It happens all the time in NHL too. Whenever they change something, say people were complaining they couldn't score on long shots, they make it so it happens like every time because it happens in real life like once every year.

    Long shots are a bit easy, thats true.
    But in the video you CLEARLY let your opponent way too much space.

    It happens, but it does not happen that often. Having 9/10 long shots finding the target and more often than not ending up in goal due to stupid keepers is in no way realistic. Even the best long shot takers either miss most of their long shot attempts or put them too close to the keeper. There's a reason goals like Guidetti's for Celta last week get so much attention - it's because they're actually fairly rare.

    That said, the shot taker had lots of space in the clip posted by the OP, but long shot goals are too common in the game, there's no arguing against that.

    Prefer that than defending like someone would in real life and showing an attack the outside so they're forced to practically the by line, then they score cos keepers have a fit if the ball goes near post

    Anyone can score a long shot it's sooo easy. All you need to do is 3/4 power top corner and the Gk will never save it. Trust me i do it all the time.

    I agree it was a great effort. Caught the keeper off guard.

    If long shots were that bad I'd concede one at least every other game. But I'd say I concede one maybe once every 10 games and usually only from just outside the box.

    They should focus more on defenders inability to stop people running up the byline and crossing across the face of goal. Or even worse beating 3 defenders and smashing it in from a ridiculous angle.
