That one thing that annoys you... (excluding the obvious)

Let's keep this a bit lighthearted, no mention of the obvious flaws in the game that annoys the hell out of everyone.

The one thing (other than the obvious) that annoys me is when you finally work the ball onto your strikers strong foot only for him to turn into some sort of contortionist to get a shot off using his weak foot.

It's like, mate I've just had to pass the ball around for an extra two minutes, hold off three defenders, get a skill move off just to get the ball onto your stronger foot...

    For me, it's whoever I pass the ball to refusing to come short even though I'm controlling them and have rammed the left stick in the direction I want them to go to receive the ball. Nope, they just stand there, motionless, as my oppo skips in front of them and waltzes merrily on their way to my goal. It happens especially with forwards but my defence often give me heart attacks this way too.

    I'd put that into the "obvious problems with the game" category. Have another go.

    I can't get it down to just one:

    1 - My defenders getting sucked into tackles or trying to block a pass, no matter how hard I'm trying to back off with them.

    2 - Holding circle being the control for both outstrengthing attackers and doing lunging tackles. The amount of times I'm side by side with a striker and try to outstrength him, only for my defender to lunge in and let him completely through is pathetic.

    Oh, sorry. I should have just rolled with this one:

    3 - Calling someone short on free kicks, yet they refuse to do it. Or even worse sometimes, your own player will fake you out, he starts running towards you, you press pass and then he stops running.

    Like wtf is that? And how did they even break it? It works perfectly on all past FIFAs, yet it's a joke this year.

    But the numbers resetting does my head in, it's nothing I know but it really annoys me....

    Also, when you hold down the button for a short corner, only for it not to register because my opponent is making a quick substitution...WTF?

    I was just about to say the same thing after reading miudos comment. This annoys the ❤️❤️❤️❤️ out of me, mainly in SB.

    First one is so irritating, players being dragged to the ball when you're trying to read the game.

    Yeah. I especially hate it on berba-spins/giovinco turns... bet my opponents are all smug thinking they've done me, when in reality they're the easiest skill moves to read but sometimes my defenders just decide to jump in on the attacker and get destroyed. lol

    Calling your player short for a free kick and the opponent managing to continuously block to player.

    Has this happened to anyone else?

    The most annoying thing that really pisses me off is kick off goals. I can handle the other bs, but kick off goals have to seriously go

    When your winger (which you have on get behind) starts to make run so you send a through ball and they decide to stop as you release the button.

    100% experienced every single thing mentioned so far.

    Going to add another.

    Ball is in the air in your own penalty box, it's going to fall to your defender who has all the time in the world, you press X to head it back to keeper to give you a chance to get players back into position etc, but instead of headering it he'll wait till it's almost hit the ground and volley/half volley it back to the keeper who obviously can't pick it up. Keeper auto-❤️❤️❤️❤️ it up field and you're on the back foot again.

    Thats because keepers dont give a ❤️❤️❤️❤️ about you or care about how you feel, plus theyve had a box of xanex or any other benzodiazepines before they play

    The thing that annoys me is when I have manual player switching and it decides I want to be a cb instead of my left or right mid to cut off the open player

    The weak foot kicking after moving onto stronger foot deffo F’s me off.

    Also when it’s a loose ball and it’s impossible to move your player to it

    Gonna add another. Player switching set on manual, air balls as well - when opponent clears the ball from their box, it takes 2-3 L1 presses to switch to the player you want to head the ball. And because you dont know how many presses it will take, you'll accidentally switch to someone else which will unlock the closest player from the ball - ball lost.

    Player switching in general, set on manual and game keep switching between my players...

    I seem to have the problem that when you get into the final third and then pass the ball out wide to the overlapping full back and they just let the ball run out of play
    This happens in other areas of the pitch but this example happens once or twice for me every weekend
