Just started and am 0-2. Not just 0-2 I've been destroyed these first two games. I'm on possession and just can't seem to even walk it up 5 yards. Haven't qualified for the FUTWL the last two weeks but managed to at least play ok regardless of the W.

Also do the majority of people just park the bus when WL starts.Unreal.. and this after just 2 games.. Im gonna need to already take a break. Cigarette here i come

RANT OVER

    when they park the bus. its easy to dominate possession. you dont have to go forwards. just keep the ball.

    9/10 they give in and come looking for it.

    2 games is nothing still 38 to go. If you are playing vs a PTB guy just pass the ball a lot more than you usually do and keep possession in his midfield, if you do this well enough he starts getting impatient and will open huge holes on his defense.
    If you are conceding lots of goals you should play defensive or counter-attack since it will help you defend vs the bad players but on the attack you will have less man and also be less dangerous.

    This is bang on, keep taking long shots too if you get a decent CAM or striker like Ross Barkley for example. Last guy that parked the bus on me from kick off I made suffer. Scored a long shot, then I passed it round the back he had no choice but to come out then beat him stupid as he didn't know what to do.

    I dont get how people stuggle so much with PTB. All you have to do is not try and take on the last line of defense. Just get space in front of them and shoot.

    Its high pressure i dont like playing against. Yet use it myself :#:joy:

    But how do you deal with high pressure tactics? Seems to becoming more and more common.
