    Nice free kick!

    Do you line it up with opposing player's head and just hold diagonal up with two bars?

    I need to learn how to score them consistently.

    So, truth be told, this was my first free kick goal with Roberto this year, and mayyyyyyybe my sixth or seventh total? Last year, and those who read my thread will affirm this, I was an absolute MONSTER at them. Specifically with Roberto - he is just boss hogg at free kicks - and as soon as I got fouled today I knew it was going in.

    The technique largely depends on the player kicking and the position of the ball on as oriented towards the goal. In a situation like that, you basically want to envision how much the ball is going move or curve (which I usually figure out strictly through trial and error), and then I simply aim at the terminus of that range OUTSIDE of the goal post. Roberto is absolutely NASTY at the short range, over the wall, bending back on goal style, but there are a couple of other ways to use him. Trust me when I say I will be using him to bang FKs for the remainder of the year, posting all of them, and I'll see if in doing so I can articulate my method better. I've never really thought about the wall as a way to orient or aim, and I power up on feel alone, but you've given me some other metrics I might integrate to understand my own method better. I actually thought I didn't power it up quite enough at first, and I think if he had jumped with his wall better he could have blocked it, but by that point it was like 4-1 and he rage quit before I even finished celebrating!

    I think I've scored around 6 or 7 also and 3 of those with the GOAT. I had an exact formula written down but it was way too inconsistent. Simply changing a chem style which affected curve and shot power would throw everything off.

    I will be trying different things to see if I can get some consistent results.

    Wow, interesting thought.... chem style affecting curve and shot power... hmmmm, what would be the MOST potent chem for Roberto then?!?
  • Which version do you have? If you have the PIM nothing will improve those stats because they are all at 99! :o

    Shot Power - 99
    Curve- 99
    FK. Accuracy - 99

    His offensive stats are incredible for a LB! He could probably rip it up as a CAM or complete CM.

    Nice goal! B)

    Look at this scene of outright finesse play out before your eyes....

    I start aiming toward near post, and then he pulls a man to guard it... I readjust to far post and flick the aiming/orientation back and forth like a spastic 4,5,6 times before jusssssst barely clinking one I'm of the post.

    Supreme skill?

    Nay.

    Supreme HORN!!!

    101 goals in 79 matches for me, by my poor standards that’s fairly miraculous.
    If he was High/Low he’d be perfect.

    Well done, mate.

    And, don't worry; his super double prime moments will have dank work rates, I'm sure.

    To be quite honest, you seem like a bit of a one-trick pony. Okay, maybe two tricks. And while I do cede to the small modicum of talent you undoubtedly wield, I have to comment that this would ALL be much, much more horned... if it was with a GOAT. Hernandez, brah? Really?

    Hernandez? Who is using him? I packed hid prime as a loan once, lasted 2 games before he got discarded.

    I envy of the GOAT, meanwhile George Best keep missing easy chance and I have no confidence to shoot in front of goal with him.

    What is up with your boy? I cannot imagine him missing sitters?
