Please Give Advice Struggling So Much

I have picked up fifa back up again after not playing it for a couple years. I was pretty good in the past though now it is really telling that opponent has an edge. Surprisingly I got to division 2 through defending and literally lucky/really hard fought goals(oddly enough I was never that good at defending in previous fifas).I find it so hard to create chances mostly due to the incredible amount of instant pressure my opponents always exerts in trying to win the ball back. Add that my players feel heavy and turn slowly, it makes me sad how bad I am at dribbling in this version of fifa. Obviously I am not doing something right because it takes so much for me to defend while they make it look like a piece of cake. Please give suggestions they would be much appreciated

    Easier said then done mate, I have no problem scoring but it's annoying when my 88 IF Sanchez stands on the half way line when i'm attacking.

    I forgot to add that you may want to experiment with custom formations and tactics, although custom formations are simply doesn't exist on FUT (if you are playing FUT)...

    ^ my players are so static sometimes and when I call them to make a run its too late the defender blocks it. Also I found out that winning a 1 on 1 pace race vs a defender is pretty hard in this fifa.

    that has always annoyed me like how can my wingers not outrun the likes or Mertsacker. I know the games not all about pace but there has to be a balance somewhere, if the defender can easily push our strikers off the ball then we should be able to run a bit quicker then them

    I just hate this game tbh. The game only causes me stress even when I win. It is not fun nor realistic, there is possibly things I am not doing right though idk anymore..

    I am all for slow build up play though what is the point when your players cannot turn or dribble. Also when ai defending is extremely aggressive and does 70% if not more of the defending for the player.

    Learn to knock the ball on without using the right stick and you'll be able to make much better use of acceleration.

    Don't switch to a defender. Keep with a striker or midfielder who runs like a mad man.
