It's so stupid that for some reason EA have my 5'8 player mark the front post it's impossible to stop those full power cheese corners into the near post when my guy standing there is a dwarf. it makes no sense you can't assign who stands where on the tactics screen

    True... I had Kante on Front post while defending....

    While when it is my turn to take corners... Varane is outside the box... Don't understand how that works...

    As a person who happens to be 5’8 it kinda makes me sad you think we cant handle it. We big in the heart ❤️ and some of us have 35 inch verticles 😭😭

    Yeah this issue is very annoying and actually costs me the odd game here and there.

    My prime Rio was always at the front post when I'm defending corners and not much got past him but ever since I have added Kante to my team the game has decided he's the perfect guy to be defending near post it's just stupid tbh.

    Yeah I have Torreira at the front post. It's so stupid.
  • You guys think there’s a way to petition in a future this as an update in custom tactics, like you can choose who takes free kicks and how many people in the box but not who where and how they run

    What’s ridiculous is that on the offence they purposely put your best header of the ball at the near post, so they know that’s where the danger is, but on defence they put some short guy there. They’re setting you up to fail

    Nain is 5’9” with 70 odd jump. He’s not helping you out

    This is so frustrating. I have torreira on the near post too. Then when I bring on mvp Josef he stands near post when I’m taking the corner. Meanwhile Jonathan tah has got into the box for a header three times in over 100 games. Scored all three coincidently.

    Has to be on purpose, it’s always the shortest guys that defends the near post.

    On a similar note, why can't we assign a player at the back post??

    It's stupid why they do this and they have to make it so you can change/edit on who is marking specific players/areas as I feel this would be a great addition to the game

    They used to let you set this up but of course some **** made it so they had 10 players on the goal line. This was pre-youttube as well so you can only imagine how it would be exploited now.

    So rather than cose a new solution they just removed it totally.

    It must be to do with a position in your team I reckon.
