  • Please do try and learn how to break down the defence and score instead of using and abusing noob tactics; what is the point in saying you are a poor player but you can hold your own in Div 3?

    Be good enough to be in that division by playing proper football. I hate crossers the most; I don't mind timed finesse shots because I've learned how to anticipate and move the goalkeeper.

    The challenge is to learn how to dribble, pass, skill and score...not run down the side and YOLO cross for a goal. You don't need Wout or whatever his name is, I've had pygmies outjump my Varane.
    Well, i’m Poor/average at exploiting the meta but pretty good enough tactically for div 3. Just because I don’t copy a ‘pro’ tactic from YouTube doesn’t make them ‘noob’ tactics. If it were that easy everyone would be using them.

    “Proper football” - interesting concept that. Also interesting you don’t mind facing what most players attempt but something different gets under your skin. You sound a bit like Wenger after his Arsenal team gets beaten by Stoke/Bolton.

    Without wanting to sound rude I have to say you are completely incorrect with your last paragraph. The object of the game is to ouscore your opponent, how you attempt to do that is completely up to the player.

    Tactics for crossing? Anyone can do it, here it is...pacey winger, lob it in with his good foot (early), even the shortest pygmy will outjump Varane to score. I tested it with a blind 180 deg turn cross and it still worked; I refuse to cross, only pathetic noobs who are desperate for a win to boost their low self-esteem do this just like the ones who celebrate and gloat instead of hitting LBRB.

    Best Prem option for the target striker? Would IF Lukaku work?

    Hey genius, did you go to college?

    No.

    Playing FIFA doesn’t require a college education so I don’t see how that is even relevant here except to troll someone.

    Even if u did go to college... so have millions of others. It doesn’t exactly make you an intellectual elite, my guy

    Sounds like you need to learn how to stop wingers getting into dangerous positions.

    making an assumption of one's level of education based on the use of a regional colloquial term is very scholarly, my guy.

    Good guide, gonna try this. But how do you get targetman for a winger? :/
    Use custom tactics so you can swap your targetman to the wing on the dpad. In the player instructions set the winger to targetman.

    The width was too much for me so I made it 5, and am playing possession which so far seems better suiting my gamestyle. Brought in Andreas Cornelius to test it with a strong and tall striker and he has 6 goals in 3 games so far.

    Why are you even answering him, @RayS obviously a tall striker put it in him very hard and he has some pain in behind. :)

    Do you have further crossing tips? You always cross with L2/LT ? Which are the best spots?
    I have problems to find my targetman. Which players do you use for crossing?

    Thx for your help

    Nice guide and interesting, played a guy playing like this last night, He had a version of Cavani who murdered me. Might give it a go tonight as I’m in between formations at the minute, started playing 4222 enjoying it but dropped 1k skill points since switching.

    Team will look like this after switch

    4 games 4 demolition jobs raul henry and figo are doing so much more than when i played 433(5) ok the midfield is bare but you just need two ball winners with decent passing i have keane and 88 seedorf there perfect ! I hate to do it but i AI defend too and with the 3 cbs its really effective.

    Whenever I AI defend I think Moses must be in the stadium somewhere because they just part in the middle and let everyone through. Will probably give this another try. Currently using a back 4 team but have Kondogbia in midfield. Would he be able to drop back as a CB using the game plans?

    Nice team, Lukaku’s a monster at LWB, played him there since he was released. How’s Klose? Love his stats but the heigh5 worries me a bit.

    Also, do you find mil-sav a bit limited in the LCM role? I like a crossing dribbling option there.
