    Notes: I'm on an awesome run. @Orison Thank you for the advice, since last night when you gave me pointers I've been so much more consistent. Gold III with 6 games to go, I think this is the fastest I've ever gotten there.

    Trent / Robertson - Gosh, those two created so much and actually scored some this WL. Some people are saying don't do Trent, I disagree. He's quality in creation.

    If this was like Hockey and grated an assist to the pass before the assist, Trent and Robertson would probably be over 10 assists each easy.

    Notes: Good overall game; I just let him get ahead in the 2nd half. He was probably the best player I've faced all weekend and because I'm oddly in a state of CALM, I held my own the whole game - he just beat me.

    @ccooaattssyy Thanks man! Somehow I've not raged once this whole WL. I didn't quit a game and have played 27 so far, LOL. This may be my first EVER full WL with stats for every game.

    In my last 5; the game's I've lost have been to people who just massively outplayed me. It seems as if I had some favorable matchups on my run to GIII because I'm still playing well, when my passing is near 90% I'm having a great game - but I'm not getting shots. I'm playing people who can defend. It's rough.

    Yup: can seem a bit monotous and boring but the best way to create good chances and score easy goals is to play on balanced, slow down the construction of the chance and not use too many skills: three or four are the ones required.
    Since i play like this, no matter the formation i use, i score many more goals than when i used ti play on long ball or fast build up.

    I'd agree but not on the skills part, I use quite a lot of different ones and it doesn't make my attacking play worse, although if you are not good at skills it is best to just do the simple ones. and not anything too fancy. Long ball is also good at times, either against someone who plays a high line and cant defend properly or if you want to sit deep and counter at the end of a game. Fast build up I hate though.

    Toty Messi didn't last long unfortunately, I wanted to like him and potentially keep him all game and he was very good but he was hardly better than normal Messi apart from pace and stamina and his strength was a lie he felt just as weak as a normal most of the time so was not worth putting so many coins in one player. Instead I have gone for Toty Kante who is very good and impactful, and with a better team around him with Prime Crespo and Inform Mbappe in the team where as in the last squad I didn't have the coins to partner him with a more expensive attacker.

    I get your point on skilling and i agree but what i've learnt is that vs opponents Who are good at defending, most of the times skilling is useless and the only way to break them down is to play simple. But i'd say none of us two is in the wrong: just different approaches. I totally agree on the use or the long ball tactic.

    Btw, ended this wl on 17-4 and i Hope to have more free time next weekend because the team is playing a dream. KDB and WBY have had both 32 goals, 25 aasists each in 21 matches and their partnership up top is simply perfect. Only played the last six matches with Toty Frenkie but i've instantly felt a huge difference compared to nif Kantè (obviously...) as he scored 8 assisting 10 times. Him and base Blanc must have been a nightmare for my oppos to play against. What a card, what a duo! Honorable mention to Diego Carlos: did with untradeable just to have a good defensive sub and he turned out to be on of the best cbs i've used so far.
    Ousmane still doing a great job and plying way better then Ney at rm/lm. Don't know where to upgrade next, probably Semedo, but i'm left with 200k spare and i'm putting them into trading.

    Looks a very good team, I dont like Dembele personally, he drives me crazy with his lack of passing ability and finishing, he is ok for the price but I prefer Coman for a cheap French winger, maybe upgrade to Dalglish or Prime Crespo instead of Ben yedder in the long term or 86 Zambrotta or 87 Zanetti for Semedo as a quicker upgrade.

    Thanks man, especially for your suggestions. Tried all of the three Zambro cards and i didn't like him at all at rb but he's been superb as a rm in a 352/3412, so i'll go for Zanetti or some other rb card i'll find iteresting to use or good for the price.
    WBY is honestly superb and, imo, much better value for coins than Dalglish or prime Crespo. Also, i really think/hope he'll get an upgrade so i don't have the urge to upgrade him. Ousmane is doing a great job for me at rm or lcam when swtiching to 4231 and he actually assisted a lot in my 20 wl matches: finished with something like 25 assists and 10ish goals.
    Edit: just checked my wl spreadsheet and he's had 27 assists and 14 goals, so not bad at all. And i've noticed that i've scored a total of 86 goals in 21 matches: never had stats like that even when i used to have a full Legend/icon squad in 17 and 18. Hope to rank elite asap.

    Toty Messi didn't last long unfortunately, I wanted to like him and potentially keep him all game and he was very good but he was hardly better than normal Messi apart from pace and stamina and his strength was a lie he felt just as weak as a normal most of the time so was not worth putting so many coins in one player. Instead I have gone for Toty Kante who is very good and impactful, and with a better team around him with Prime Crespo and Inform Mbappe in the team where as in the last squad I didn't have the coins to partner him with a more expensive attacker.

    Messi has always been a mystery to me: immense, perfect card but i cannot click with him and get the best out of his cards, even the toty or tots ones. At the start of the game he was an absolute beast for me at st or cam but then, all of the sudden, he started to act like a 50 rated bronze card.
    So, how does your squad look like now?

    Thanks guys. Orison gave me some pointers Friday night. Just basic stuff and gosh did it make a difference.

    Yup: can seem a bit monotous and boring but the best way to create good chances and score easy goals is to play on balanced, slow down the construction of the chance and not use too many skills: three or four are the ones required.
    Since i play like this, no matter the formation i use, i score many more goals than when i used ti play on long ball or fast build up.

    I'd agree but not on the skills part, I use quite a lot of different ones and it doesn't make my attacking play worse, although if you are not good at skills it is best to just do the simple ones. and not anything too fancy. Long ball is also good at times, either against someone who plays a high line and cant defend properly or if you want to sit deep and counter at the end of a game. Fast build up I hate though.

    I get your point on skilling and i agree but what i've learnt is that vs opponents Who are good at defending, most of the times skilling is useless and the only way to break them down is to play simple. But i'd say none of us two is in the wrong: just different approaches. I totally agree on the use or the long ball tactic.

    Btw, ended this wl on 17-4 and i Hope to have more free time next weekend because the team is playing a dream. KDB and WBY have had both 32 goals, 25 aasists each in 21 matches and their partnership up top is simply perfect. Only played the last six matches with Toty Frenkie but i've instantly felt a huge difference compared to nif Kantè (obviously...) as he scored 8 assisting 10 times. Him and base Blanc must have been a nightmare for my oppos to play against. What a card, what a duo! Honorable mention to Diego Carlos: did with untradeable just to have a good defensive sub and he turned out to be on of the best cbs i've used so far.
    Ousmane still doing a great job and plying way better then Ney at rm/lm. Don't know where to upgrade next, probably Semedo, but i'm left with 200k spare and i'm putting them into trading.

    Looks a very good team, I dont like Dembele personally, he drives me crazy with his lack of passing ability and finishing, he is ok for the price but I prefer Coman for a cheap French winger, maybe upgrade to Dalglish or Prime Crespo instead of Ben yedder in the long term or 86 Zambrotta or 87 Zanetti for Semedo as a quicker upgrade.

    Thanks man, especially for your suggestions. Tried all of the three Zambro cards and i didn't like him at all at rb but he's been superb as a rm in a 352/3412, so i'll go for Zanetti or some other rb card i'll find iteresting to use or good for the price.

    Is Ben yedder OTW miles better than his Normal then? I used his normal and found him very average but haven't used his If cards, I could get him instead of Crespo and then add either 87 desailly or 85 Blanc to my team to replace either Varane NIF or Futmas Witsel who does the job well for me. Also look at Ben yedder' s cards the low stamina has always put me off, is that not an issue?

    His otw is amazing: 94 positioning, 93 finishing, 86 ball control, 88 dribbling, makes great runs and thanks to his 3 agility feels faster than his stats. For me has scored 90+% of his chances. 72 stamina isn't an issue since i set him on stay forward; KDB is on cbod and set to mixed attacks so che can play like a cf and create spaces for WBY runs or do one-twos. I highly recommend him. If Witesl does the job for you (destroyes me every time i face him: what a card) save 700k and spread them to upgrade other areas of your team: 87 Desailly is a rock but not sure if he's worth his price tag. For me base Cannavro's been much better and solid than him; now i have base Maldini at cb (start him at lb to make him play at 10 chem) and as usual he's one of the best cbs who can actually score headers from corners.

    Not gonna lie i also tuned in and sort of listened to what Orison had to say and I achieved gold 1 usually gold 3 or below. Slowing down the play and picking passes is what worked. Usually i just rush things and try to get the ball up to the forwards as quick as I can.

    So thanks Orison 😂

    @BcfcDale88 dude I agree. Such an obvious thing but a lot of people don’t do it. It really helped me rage less. My passing percentage was 90+ pretty regularly after I slowed down. I won most of those games.

    This was the first WL I ever didn’t quit a single game or rage once and I played all 30.

    Ive listed up Crespo he is not worth 1mill I have used him for a few games and he just doesn't offer enough, I'm going to get Ben yedder SIF and then either 89 Blanc for Varane or Prime Veron for Witsel.
