Never create attacks through possession football, the opponent just get
free Counter attack goals after you've spent several hours trying to
get through his defense.

Is Counter attacks always free goals in real life too?

    You can setup your players to stay back. Sokkers got a 433 guide with a video if you need to see how.

    That's why u play direct and play possession only when they chase the ball cause they are goals down

    It is frustrating when an opponent just packs the box with defenders. You'll try to pass and find a gap but you are left with 2 defenders back on the half way line.

    You force your clean chances and don't mess around

    That's how fifa works. 90% of the goals scored in the WL for and against me are from counter attacks.

    No, in real life player can actually dribble and pass in the box without being pushed off the ball, blocked or your pass intercepted 99% of the time without your opponent pressing any button

    You are rewarded in this game by playing negative, probably on purpose to help casual players.

    This.

    Too much possession makes it hard to break down a defence
  • Too much possession will make all CMs chasing around you while the defenders already in the box. One mistake pass results in goal conceded

    Some people are just good no matter what - possession or counter doesn't matter. There are people who have an ability or aptitude for this game where they can see two or three moves ahead.

    It's not about possession or counter attack at this stage of the game. It's about using and abusing game mechanics. People tend to dribble a lot, Skillmoves, Agility and Dribbling are way to OP.

    After the 2nd Berba Spin on a RL defender you would feel his elbow or his legs trying to break your shins. It's Arcade Football...

    Couldn't agree less with this. I'm using 94 Hazard at the moment, 98 agility, 99 dribbling. I'm running down the wing towards the centre back, change direction to cut inside the chasing centre back who is sprinting flat out. All of a sudden centre back stops like he's run into a brick wall and sticks his trailing leg back to make the tackle.

    Could not be less realistic. No sense of momentum at all

    You don't need to see two or three moves ahead, only one which is to never reach the position where you have to control the CBs.

    That's it
