Headers

What’s going on this year? I’m a squad battle player, and there’s no way i can score a header from a cross or a corner. Last year, worked now and then but this year, nada. It’s a pity. The game play is poorer.

    They've practically made heading redundant this year.

    EA, bring it back please! (keeping it balanced)

    Scored a few in career mode funnily enough but for the most part they are broken.

    Every player has heading accuracy 10 or lower

    But a large proportion of squad battle opponents goals are scored from headers weird eh?

    I managed to score my first headed goal yesterday, it was a special moment.

    I've been scoring more headers since the previous patch to the last. I think it's been slightly buffed.

    In 100-150 games, I scored maybe 4 times with headers. I keep trying though.

    EA don't know what balanced means.

    I noticed i have an insane 830 games played. But i have easily scored over a hundred headers. Not the best option, but they do work. Corners though... Maybe 10 headers total from corners

    I dont mind it at all. Literally corners are so easy to defend now. Also if the opponent goes out wide leave them there they cant do ❤️❤️❤️❤️ from there.

    Probably one of the few times the community is ok with the game not being realistic. Headers have always been hated.

    Yeah it waa really annoyinf. Headers were almost guaranteed goals.

    SB AI has no problen spamming flick on headers to back post goal header every game tho.

    This it's funny.

    There pin point crosses are infuriating and powrer headers yet mine hit the corner flag more than on target.

    Crosses is all I deal with against the AI they really do love running down the wing.

    Get Chris Smalling IF in at centre back. 38 headed goals from 154 games. Kane isn’t too bad either. I find the crossing is all wrong this year if when you are dribbling turn back just before you cross then cross off the weak foot it is a hell of a lot easier to score from headers. Don’t know why this works just noticed others doing it to me all the time lol.

    Says who? Headed goals are fantastic and make certain players useable. I remember TOTS Mandzukic being incredible because of his aerial ability. Raul last year aswell. Scoring a bullet header gave me as much joy as scoring a finesse from outside the area. People abusing the El Tornado cross ruined it.

    Exactly this. Scoring from a cross means a lot more to me than dribbling up the middle unrealistically.

    Unfortunately that isnt what all the children EA depends on love. They love fancy moves.

    Yep. I played 532 last year with attacking full backs and really enjoyed creating openings for them to whip balls in. It was just nice to play a different style to others.

    @ChappellRovers I’ve got Kane as one of my ST and my two CBs have good jump/heading accuracy but either the AI covers my players perfectly or the ball goes miles away.

    Try doing the dribble back crossing to put the ball onto their weaker foot and put catalysts on your wingers (i have sterling totgs lw/sancho rtf rw) and putting Kane to stay central so he doesnt run to the winger for support. Also put your wingers to get into the box on crosses. For some reason crossing on the weak foot seems to do it for me balls in or around the 6 yard box everytime. If when your about to cross outside the box you turn around sprint a yard or two towards your half then cross, ball seems to just find Kane’s head. Before i did that the crosses were going out for throw ins or to the outside of the box. Had a lot more success with crosses from 4-4-2 as well.

    For corners i put it the otherside of the penalty spot with alexander-arnold (90 crossing) as my corner taker. Maybe 30% of the time the keeper gets it, the rest Smalling gets it and scores around 30% of the time. Again though I try and do it from the weaker foot only. The only goals from
    crosses online both for and against have come from the weaker foot. The AI seems to only defend for the stronger foot.

    I used to think it was not a problem...but hell nah heading is trash this year especially when the keeper rebounds it..instead of doing a low aiming header or power header it always does an arc one..and super slow...most of the time the keeper gets back up and gets a hand on it..and i have cr7 and martinez up top..i can only score from corners if i force it and a driven lob pass on a counter..other than that ..any other situation headers are useless..

    Not been funny here but why is it when playing squad battles we miss easy headers yet ai score every bloody header going !!!
    I don’t mind if ai has same impact as us surely that’s fair if we can’t head they can’t or if they can we should be able to !!!
    Rant over 😂

    @RadioShaq it's actually pretty awful that ea can't differentiate between offensive and defensive headers. I'm ok with not scoring headers, but it's insane to not be able to clear balls that are in the air for example even if you have all the space in the world.
  • It's the player switching. Change it to manual and they work way better
