Well chuffed.
An emphatic 5-1 win with my Brazil team so I've cracked open an afternoon kronenbourg to celebrate.
I know it's not much but had to share popping my virginity 😀

    I only started when it came on gamepass, I've played rivals one game a week so I get the rewards and get relegated slowly.

    Managed to only lose 3-1 the last time I did it to a team in div 7 which somehow had 5 red fut cards way above my best players but Ive been doing the icon objectives in squad battles and got some extra Brazil players and gave it a shot.

    soon to be replaced by a knot in your stomach as your Neymar falls over the ball for the second time in 5 minutes while Ronan McKinley waltzes through your team and slots it from 90 yards.

    😂 Neymar I wish! I had a knot in my stomach all second half, every game before I've collapsed in the second half 🤦

    Nice one. I was like that last FIFA, just after Xmas.
    Was too afraid to try online for ages.

    Whilst it's difficult now because many reasonable people have left. But once in a while a close match with someone that does exploit everything leads to a match that, win or lose is good fun.

    I have really struggled with penalties in fut 21. I must have taken well over 100 and I think I have scored about 5 :lol:

    I am good with free kicks though, I have scored over a hundred of them :lol:

    Still haven't scored from a corner though. You know how you cross it in and someone scores with a shot or a header? Haven't managed that yet from over 2,000 matches. Must be because I don't bother with changing any tactics or player instructions or anything like that :lol:

    All Brazil, I like it.
    Going forward you need to get some pace at the back.
    That mina objective card would fit in at RCB, though obviously not Brazilian.

    Also I would switch formation, maybe 5 at the back, with a proper LB and RB
    Very attacking formation currently, which from what you tell me, is suicide at the moment until you get your level up.

    This thread gives me hope for the community, lots of encouragement and help instead of toxicity. I only moved from career mode and offline squad battles a couple of years ago myself, it’s a bit daunting at first but you soon get into it. Good luck I hope you stick with it

    Just looked at Tactics for the first time. Have changed Corners to 1.

    What do you do for Players in box? I'm on the default 5 out of 10.

    I haven't scored a single free kick coming up to 300 matches, I've done the tutorial challenge thing a million times but it just constantly goes to the keeper.

    Wish I could upload the video of how I got the penalty, was so stupid how the ref pulled it back rather than keep the advantage of actually scoring.

    I've scored quite a few of corners by controlling the receivers and running round in circles. Thiago Silva scored a curling shot from the edge of the box earlier when the ball dropped to him 😀

    Futties is a good time to get some cheap players @Corkysquid47 with lots of promo cards being rerelased.

    Yass! Thanks for the tips, this was For the one nation challenge so it's pretty much all my highest Brazilian cards. I used to have a few more but I put them in the kimmich SBC which I started while drunk. 😂

    Managed to get my 4 wins from 6 matches, 1 went to overtime and gave away the others.

    Would have liked to do the current SBC Brazil striker but there now way I have a 97 squad and another to put in.

    I tried a five at the back in squad battles but often found that when attacking I ran out of options quickly, as often I'm having to play counter. My defending definitely needs improvement when one on one. I'm pretty good at swamping the ball though by running everyone back, more legs = more blocks 😂

    I have some FIFA points which I used some Xbox reward points on as there was a festival of football card in a pack and I struggle with coins. Most of my packs are untradable so never get anything from those either.

    I have loads of 79-80 rare gold's but nothibg that I can see what to do with them. There was an sbc the other week which I got rid of lots.

    Every freaking pack I open guaranteed I will get a dupe of one or more of these so I can't open any more until I deal with them, often I have to bin them which as a hoarder I hate
