    You have basically got to activate the dreaded constant pressure and hope for the best half the time.

    The starting positions of the entire midfield is ridiculous. Basically 5 seconds of fighting to get them in the right position to defend

    Time and time again I notice my players reacting much slower after kick off

    I've lost count of how many times I have scored or concede within 2 in game minutes of a kick off.

    Quick tip for you all is to do the offside trap when opponent is half way between the centre circle and 18 yard box.

    You need to be compact and this helps a lot

    Offside trap barely helps

    Fouling and conceding a free kick is the only way to stop it successfully.

    Try to move your striker back before kick off. It helps to build an extra layer ahead of your opened back line.

    I've noticed it too but I kind of blame myself if it happens. I tend to get one of the players standing wide of the semi circle on the halfway line to come in more central and force the player to either pass it wide or attempt to get past me and it seeks to work.

    My issue is half time goals. I'm very suspicious, not sure how often it is against me but it feels like 1 in 2 and sometimes its their first shot!

    Last year I found it worse. I just take out anyone I can from kickoff and hold the ball in the last minutes of the first and second half.

    I don't think there is a "kick off glitch", it is a dead ball glitch, any time the ball goes dead the defending team (aside from the guy you're controlling, obviously) is stuck in treacle for 5 seconds.

    It's why those stupid free kicks where half the team run over the ball are much harder to defend than they should be, even those ones where someone just taps the ball to the side, these are blocked 99.9% of the time IRL.
    Even throw-ins, watch everyone just stand there, for some reason the team defending will just switch off completely every time.

    I often spam offside trap and team pressure to try and get them moving about, sometimes it helps, sometimes it doesn't.

    I personally only get kick off goals occasionally. I agree with @Futfanatic that they were worse last year.

    Even if you do defend and intercept the ball, it just keeps going back to them...
    Then you clear the ball, straight to them.. with one pin point header back to one off they’re player, which is surrounded by most of my players.. bang goal..

    Most annoying thing is, they’ve had zero chance of scoring normally, but can do with kick off..

    Guess we want have any change for Fifa 20

    Offside trap helps me give up a goal 10 out of 10 times.

    I think the issue stems from the fact that all the defenders are static when the ball is kicked off so takes a bit of time for them to start moving freely and engage.

    In normal play they are all moving around trying to mark players and cut off passing lanes, with kick off there isn’t a player anywhere near to them so they just stand still, then by the time a player is near they are too slow to react.

    Something is different on kickoffs. Players seem slightly slower to react for me.

    Booting it out corrects it though

    Uhhh those free kicks!! I see the guy stacking up players to take it and just know 2 of them are going to run past the wall, he passes and shoots. I track the run but WHY do none of my players move or react once that pass is played?! Its literally like a free shot from 10 yard no pressure. IRL you would make the runs and get tracked/marked or blocked out. In FIFA its a freebie.

    It will be worse next year when they nerf AI defending.
