Im noticing a pattern in this game

GK's seem to be there for decoration only and arent real GK's, they dont really do much and cant seem to save most basic shots for some reason.

I dont know if its mainly my GK, but out of the 3 I have tried, they are all bad. They seem to always let in angle shots, running at a 45 degree angle (even when I move my gk straight to the ball) he falls over and dives out of the way.

And im also noticing my gk is letting in goals from impossible angles. He is standing right there and somehow the ball goes past him and they score, I think his arms are painted on LOL. The only way I can stop goals is not let them shoot so much, but its very hard to do.

Any suggestions here, for better gk's maybe or another tip, or are they all bad in this Fifa?

    It’s best to defend the shot. Gk don’t bail you out like in past fifas.

    Its so hard to do that though when your getting button delay and they run at you with their pacey players. Would just be nice if world class GK's could save more shots then not and dont be scared of the ball, its not going to hurt them 😂

    Are you using the Glove chem style on your Keeper?

    Basic has been nerfed and Glove is better than it this year.

    Really ? I always use basic chemistry on all my players. Has that been confirmed ? Also, what about outfield players and their chemistry, is basic still good ? In previous fifa games when I added different chemistry styles, it seemed to make my player worse, so I always left it.

    Yeah I dont think EA has the balance right for the keepers in this game.

    Also, ive noticed, the refs give penalties for the most stupid things, its getting a bit annoying already lol.
  • It is all pure luck and .... , some GKs still save shots volleyed at 6 yards area !

    Probably a big reason why you’re struggling. Everyone is using Chen to host pace of their players

    So does chemistry styles definitely have a positive effect in fifa 21 , unlike previous fifa games ?

    I "upgraded" to Alisson and he was horrific I tried Ederson and terrible ... finally just went with Vacklick Asenjo Neto Pope ordinary GK seem to do just fine compared to the big names

    You mean like this one? Where I pushed Rodrigo onto his wrong foot and he manages to chip the keeper when he's only 5 yards off his line...The keeper falls over after it's already above his head 😂

    Don't know your division, but I'm D5 and I agree that GKs are unrealistically bad, but simply using the triangle on PS controller to call the GK closer has saved me many goals.

    Might want to google chemgate. They definitely have not always worked and ea lied through their teeth about it until the community proved it.

    I just played against Ter Stegen then and he was bloody good. He saved everything except the goals I should have scored.
