    Jockeying in the box is the worst, just when i think i'm in control, all my opponent does is pass across the face of goal for a tap in.

    Yep I'm the same. Loved access but now with 41212 counter PTB if your player takes an age to turn or shoot your blocked.

    Maybe you guys are just bad at defending.

    I'm inclined to agree with this, if you manually control your players, track runs, jockey, dont lunge in and dont expect help from the AI you should be good. The only issue I've had is with right stick player switching, or rather lack of.

    If you guys who are complaining want help then I'd be inclined to ask you to upload a video on the forum so we can give advice and help.

    Do not dig in until your midfield is back to your final third

    And btw i still think manual defending is close to OP.

    Well I think it might be a challenge to hit Elite and 2600 points this year whit scoop crosses+downward headers and dropback AI defending.

    OK so after a horrid start in draft, I've won 2 in a row, 2 wins from 6 drafts. Draft today I won 4-1, 2-1 7-1 and 4-3 in et. Getting used to the game abit more although defending is still hard, L2 R2 definitely helps though I still struggle getting clean tackles in with people running at my defenders when they have the option of 1-2's and also when the opponent is on the edge of my box.

    Tackles going back to the opponent is still a massive problem especially with this defending and cost me a couple goals today.
