    Was 19-0 but Lost my first game due to Courtois come to collect a non pressure ball and fumbled it out for a corner in which he scored lol. Then after that I played Gorilla was 1–1 at half time but he is class at this game. Then I played ITS WHAT I DO, the guy was so boring lol.

    Stopped at 23-3 but I will try for T100 next week.

    Not easy playing 26 games on a Sunday night lol.

    Its what i do aka hashtag harry

    Ah fair enough, thought he was only on PlayStation lol.

    Got top 100 (29-1) - Had to play all 30 today because I didnt have a full team. Never doing that again. Happy to get top 100 but have a raging headache now.

    Prime R9 scored 69 times in his first weekend league. He is truly the GOAT. TOTY CR7 doesn't hold a candle on him in my opinion.

    WL needs some reqs , It is starting to become stale . Nothing to grind towards now that TOTY is over

    Wouldn’t make WL fun, just a massive coin sink once req’s ended

    Agreed.

    The worst thing they have ever done is put reqs on the WL.

    You spend ages making your team and then can't use it..

    Wouldnt mind seeing different stuff in weekly objectives though.

    Agree make single matches relevant again. Remove the need to get FUTSWAP or other objectives through rivals as you are at a disadvantage in that mode.

    New accounts everywhere pretending they have been part of the community.

    There is no such thing as team gets you free wins specially if you don't cherry pick and didn't play 3 weekends before.

    Regretted claiming my entry as soon as i done it, stopped at 14 as every game i was forcing myself to play

    Flashback ibra sucks, 16 games without a goal or assist playing minimum 45 mins a game. One game he missed 5 one on ones and 2 open goals within 5 8 yards.....and i thought tevez was bad

    If he's gone that long without a goal or assist & missed 5 one on ones, i'll take it that it's you thats the problem, not Ibra.

    Usually id say yes, but as i usually get on with his build of striker and used mvb, shearer, vieri etc all to more of a goal a game contribution and pretty much can make all strikers work, for me its definitley him.

    Dribbling and everything i love with him but his finishing was appaling. Tried finisher on him, engine and even for the last 6 games a hunter to see if it helped but hes sbc fodder

    The fact he lost headers to kante got me tilted to.

    Gone back to henry and crespo

    For me Ibra doesn't lose headers, he can miss but he always wins them. yeah he gets bullied off the ball sometimes, but thats his balance being awful... that';s to be expected, just have to find a way to free up space & get a shot off.

    Need to get over the Gold 2 wall.

    I've learned to use spin and fake shots well. What other skills are the most effective that could improve my game?

    Any other suggestions to help get to Gold 1 or above?

    Thanks! Yea I dont have the confidence to move the GK. I'll keep working on timed finesse...I cant seem to get the timing down. @Littleland95

    IDK but I think half of my goals are headers. I score so many with simple chips in the box. I dont even cross much.

    I’m g1 3 weeks in a row, I don’t skill at all. Just timed finesse and moving keeper is all you need. Don’t know why I waited so long to use them.

    Red is to fast, white is to slow. Press then tap just as your players foot is about to hit the ball. Even yellow will go in

    Okay. I hit a few yellow with CR7 and Ibra in the WL. I usually get Red so thats good to know its too soon. Ive never gotten a white...lol.

    442 flat variation

    Prime R9 - IF Son
    IF Neymar - Prime Gullit - TOTY Modric - IF Mbappe
    IF Sandro - Prime Ferdinand - Ramos - TIF Lala
    Courtois

    Had toty ronaldo in draft about 20 games and I couldn't ever get anything going with him. I had his UCL for a long time this year and couldn't get that one going etiher. Had something like a 0.7 goals per game playing striker.
