Things FIFA has taught you about the game

Chris Smalling is the fastest player in the world.

It is never a foul unless the player falls over. If he somehow manages to keep his balance through the reckless shoulder barge, it's fair play.

Musa and Ronaldo have very similar finishing ability.

No goalkeeper can defend a shot that's rolling along the ground.

Players should take penalties with a very soft shot so that the keeper dives over the ball.

If you park the bus, your chances of scoring increase.

Feel free to share some of the many things FIFA has taught you all!

    If a player runs into you, it's a foul.

    The chance of conceding a goal when taking a corner is far greater than that of scoring when taking a corner

    Being able to sprint for 90 minutes is more important than any other ability in the game.

    That football's unpredictable at the best of times. A lot of people moan about scripting, handicap and momentum etc. but you can't say it's not realistic. Just look at the PSG and Benfica games tonight.

    My defence has a tendency to do a Barca, and just part like the Red Sea.

    BPL is the only league that matters, Butland pisses all over Buffon, Handanovic, Navas, Oblak, etc.
    Busquets, Verratti, Saul and Rabiot are all useless

    Do we want that much realism though, nobody buys or plays a game with the idea of it being realistic and, 'maybe this game will be like real life and I'll hammer them and lose'

    If you're good at the game, then that is that. If you're bad at the game, your keeper shouldn't be making 10+ saves from inside the box purely to level the playing field, if you aren't good enough, you aren't good enough.

    Could not agree more!!! If I'm better than my opponent and create 10 clearcut chances a game I should not be beaten by his 1 30 yard long shot.

    The only way to play the game is sprint to the line with a 95+ pace player and square it.


    CAMs make the best tacklers.


    Dragging your Ronaldo from mid pitch to the center of your penalty area to win a tackle, than having him bomb a 90 sprint to the other penalty area, in the 70th minute is very realistic and normal.

    Coming up against Ronaldo as opposed to Martial isnt normal though. Tis rare lol

    Being short and fast with decent agility and/or balance somehow equates to strength.

    Jack Butland can clone himself and play for both teams and it's entirely possible that one version will be unbeatable in goal, whilst the other is apparently unable to detect motion and is only aware the ball is within the vicinity of his hands by way of the air being parted as shots fly past him into the net.

    It's impossible to injure your head playing football.
