    Credit where it's due, @Orison , TOTS Ben Yedder is the best striker of the game bar the two PIM's (remember you still have to change your mind on PIM Eusebio though).

    He's absolutely insane. Has 2 G+A ratio on 37 games for me (73). Never had that before with any striker since the start of the game.

    Can't even pinpoint exactly what makes him SO good, but I'd say first and foremost his positioning. Since using PIM ZZ I've come to the conclusion that workrates sometimes just mean nothing, as he's clearly THE CM of the game who makes the more runs forward, and the deepest ones too (often even above my 2 ST's), despite being MM. Well Ben Yedder is HH yet he feels as well positioned as ever.

    He has a 2 G+A ratio despite playing in a 2 st formation AND being the one not on run in behind. He's absolutely amazing. Wished I had tried him earlier. He's the only player whose finesse shots feel like power shots.

    Might do one last WL with my loan players and see how that goes :D the likes of Cruyff, Eusebio, CR7, etc. Wonder how many times I'll get quit on to waste my # of loans and to "teach me a lesson"

    12-5 and can't see myself playing more today, that puts me 27th in the world :D.
    I was 4 - 0 then 4 - 3 after some shocking performances and trying out stuff that didn't work like 3142, switched to a 4222 with Zanetti and Toty Kante two CDMs and have gone 8-2 since but really should have won every match. Will try for 20 wins tomorrow.

    Mission failed. Lost 3 games in a row against pure sweat even though I played good with the ball just got countered for tramp goals every time. Won my last game 5-1 to finish 20-9 which I will take even though I could have done better as I was 18-5 after winning 9 in a row.
    Hopefully can do better next Fifa, done with this Fifa now.
    A game where cutbacks are the meta was always going to be bad for me as I can't defend the wings well, also sick of the broken shooting where only first time shots and near post shots work properly.

    cutbacks /crosses are even stronger then?
    I prefer defending Fifa 19 el tornadoes compared to cutbacks this year, most wing oriented game I have ever played.
    Are long balls down the line still broken?

    Through balls in general are insane. Really liked it. Against good opponents it was almost impossible to defend the wings tho, certain skillmoves were too strong and if you shut down the wing the passes inside were easy, because the defending team was always very spread out.

    But defending should be hard compared to attacking so I liked it (although the game itself including many animations was still way too slow).

    Atleast you could always hope for auto blocks. Defenders on the line or in front of it were arguably better than all the keepers. I witnessed some outrageous blocks.

    Sounds even worse than this Fifa, I'm hoping longshots and across shots are good as they were always my favourite goals pre Fifa 20.

    Longshots lel.

    Far post is solid and necessary in some situations, but can still be unreliable. Same with near post tbh. RNG might be through the roof in the first few months until we get players with (almost) maxed out shooting stats.

    Do you reckon someone like Immobile will be good at the start? Someone with very good finishing and positioning but without skills and good agility.

    Tend to say no.

    I mean he will be usable while people are figuring out the game, but there should be better players for cheaper.

    I will probably still look for skills, WF, agility and balance.
