Right after having a year off I've come back and really struggling. I'm rusty for sure but I'm getting swarmed by players who've not been higher than div 7. Me included at moment...
They win the ball back all time have me man marked and I can't pass anywhere and even when I tackle they have men coming in to take the ball.
Now at the moment I can't defend for my life even the AI seems to do sod all for me - one guy put his controller down even yet his players tackled my players and trapped the ball??
But is there a glitch this year that allows you to play constant pressure for the full 90??
If they are using constant pressure they should start to tire and become slow and sluggish part way through the 2nd half.
That is what is supposed to happen.
With the high pressure it's either fight fire with fire or just slow the game down and sprint little. Try and find the passes in to feet or knock into space.
