Is there some sort of glitch for savings pens I don't know about?

I swear my last 6 or 7 penalties were all saved, I honestly can't remember the last time I scored one. I'm hitting the target, but whether it's left, right, low, high, they all get saved. Is there a glitch where the other person can see where you're aiming??

Right now hacking me down in the box is a great option for people, particularly as you don't get an automatic red anymore. :lol:

    apparently there is a slight tell
    direction the taker moves his head
    I normally power up, then just before the kick press shoot again - gen works

    the head direction in 18 was noticeable. But not so much this year for me

    true
    when saving I normally see a right footer, then dive left & vic versa

    I actually was wondering the same, missed 4 in a game this weekend. Followed by a further three in the following shoot out.

    This, I dive the way the player runs up I feel subconsciously the position makes you naturally aim for that way most seem to do it

    Yeah, I thought this was a thing in 17/18 but hadn't noticed it lately.

    So maybe if I aim one side on the run up then switch to the other side last second I'll have better luck? (Can totally see me spacking it wide but must be worth a go.)

    Yeah you can see what way their head is looking and then it's whether the person you are playing also knows that's a thing

    I always aim the exact same side for a penalty, as I have found 8/10 times people aim the same side.

    In shootouts I just go with gut and ignore the tell-tale head movement as people tend to use that as a ruse.

    There head tilts. But I find most people shoot the opposite of the kick takers stance. So a right footed player stands on the left of the ball but shoots to the right of the net

    They look at the direction you aim, then during the run up they look at the ball and before you shoot they take a look at the direction you’re aiming again. You need to switch it up after the 2nd look. The window between the 2nd look and the actual shot isn’t that big so you need to practise it to get it right.

    Obv in shootouts you need to mix it up otherwise it’ll get predictable

    The head... though if you can pull back to the center right away, that can keep them honest.
