    I want to use OTW Haller when he comes out, but not in a PL/French team

    Worst FIFA for target men strikers by far. Completely useless sadly.

    Not for holding up the ball, Willian Jose has been good at feeding the CAM in a 4231(2). Headers are non-existent though

    But maybe we can make headers great again.

    I had an easier time protecting the ball with a more agile, better dribbling striker. l1 dribbling is key this year sadly. Im looking for ways to make target men strikers work but I just cant. Open headers wont even hit the target :disappointed:

    Gonna miss the rocket headed goals from my target men this year, but they are still affective for hold up play and winning long balls.

    Especially with a player close to the striker, you can head it back easily from a goalkick

    Used Saint Maxim as a link to Haller and what a dreadful player, wouldn't pay discard for him

    Impossible to make crossing work currently. Hope they patch it.

    Trying out IF Tammy Abraham at the moment but he is pretty useless aside from holding the ball up. I agree that crossing needed to be nerfed but now its complete waste of time

    Crossing and Headers are complete Useless. Today i played over 20 Games and only 3-4 Crosses came to my Striker in the middle. And then with 87 Heading Accuracy they dont hit the target. I'm so sad

    Just have to practice experiment with power level and placement. Might have to have wingers with 90+ crossing for it to be affective.

    Gonna test out the different crossing assist modes in the in-game menu. Manual might be better? We will see.

    Whats the point of skill games when it doesnt work in game? Heading is completely fine in the crossing skill games and completely broken in FUT. Laughable really.

    I’ve got him too, he’s pretty pants. Too clunky and his finishing is shocking. Only thing he’s ok at is shielding and winning headers from goal kicks.

    Try heading towards goal and it’s awful

    Funnily enough im not really struggling with the crossing (I play manual crossing), im getting plenty of heading opportunities. The headers just seem to have either no power or are far off target.

    Hoping to see the in memory of Toni bit added. Unfortunately headers seems useless, but liking hold up thus far, Tammy has been solid
  • I think we need to protest and mobilise and force EA to bring back crossing and headers.

    I don't mind not every header going in, but Weghorst missed some sitters and he's one of the best in the world at heading

    Biggest gripe is heading it from a goalkick, they never go where you want them

    Agreed, a tall ST with 90+heading should atleast get some on goal. I have had decent succes with heading from goalkick in 2 st formations, Tammy heading down to Pukki.

    Has anyone scored from a corner or even had a shot on target? 28 games played and I haven't seen a single effort on target yet.
  • An absolute disgrace that innocent folk like me lose the power and joy of putting a good ball into the box because of the sweats spamming El Tornado crosses in 19.

    I'm using 88 Rijkaard and he's got 3 in the last 10 games from corners. IF Mane is also surprisingly good at heading.

    Thank god those cheesy corner goals and far post headers are history.

    I'm keeping Cavani just in case, it seems like the good old strong striker & fast striker combo will be still fine judging by the comments of Kane users. And big guys are usually more clinical.
  • Poulsen is really good

    My biggest problem is that the striker always stands behind the defender. So every flank goes to the defender and not to my striker. Does anyone have a tip?

    I picked up his 89 since it dropped so much... not too impressed tbh. However, the only players that have impressed me so far are potm josef (absolute beast) and akanji. Havertz is better for me now that i moved him to center cam.

    Josef has been scoring headers. Have yet to score off a corner kick though (or had one scored on me) in 40ish games.

    However, I'm absolutely thrilled the croqueta has died an awful death.
