Is it me or are keepers very slow at getting up and distributing the ball?

    Doesn't feel much different compared to the past. I like how their throwing is much more reliable than past FIFAs that's had extremely slow and weak throws.

    See I disagree on the part of it not feeling any different. I've used a few keepers and they're very slow getting up off the ground and throwing. You used to be able to hold right trigger run and throw and get further distance.

    Maybe just me tho.

    I definitely agree on the distance, I used to love throwing bullets down the flanks.

    Same, very difficult to go straight to the offensive.

    Prior years throws were a hundred times
    Better. You could easily throw to any player before your half way line accurately. This Fifa you can hardy throw past your penalty box

    Kicking is more effective, but still hit and miss.

    Goalkeeper distribution is so bad this year that I’m surprised there aren’t more people asking for it to be patched (and sort of makes me wonder if I’m doing something wrong).

    I played a game yesterday and my opponent was pressing since he was down a goal. I wanted my keeper to smack it downfield - anywhere near the middle of the pitch would have worked - and he lobs it to my player at the edge of the box who’s marked.

    The keepers also roll out the ball in situations where a throw would be a lot safer.

    Am I the only one who has these problems?

    Kicking from hand is very effective

    This is me too

    Why can’t I kick it straight down the centre?!

    To fullbacks or wingers, no problem
    But down the middle?
    Not once this Fifa have I been able to kick to my CDM (scream Fellaini)

    I don’t remember ever having a problem getting the ball away in previous fifas. Now, every time my keeper has the ball at his feet , it’s a disaster waiting to happen.
