I hear alot of people complaining about the defending in this game. At first I thought the defending was bad but after playing many games. I have gotten used to it and it is not bad. GK are pretty terrible, long shots a little op, but defense is not bad. You have to really switch alot in this game, cover people making runs, if you do this it will be very helpful to you. You have to be a complete defender this year, and it is not going to be easy for everyone, but this game has been really fun so far.
