Digging a hole for ourselves here
if you play without an ANY its best to get a GK and play 5-2-1-2 and ingame setting should be team pressing and high pressure. if you play with an ANY then the best form is 4-1-2-1-2 with no ingame setting. you should always play with 2 forwards that know how to pass, passing is the key to goals and never use VP defenders because a good forward will catch a vp defender out of position all day long, hope this helpsInsanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.

05-30-2012 #207Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Think were going to have rip up our current 'guide book' change some positions, use them 2 formations which I'm familiar with anyway and start handing out slaps round the chops for Stoke City balls.
Our main problem is rushing the ball and panicking thus hardly ever getting the ball near the goal. In the games I've played, we've played it across goal very few times, put in a cross only to have nobody in the box.
I thought switching Scouse to RAM as he is generally deep would have worked but it failed and the poor fella got switched to RCM after putting in a MOTM performance up front.
Whoever our Striker is coming deep is killing us, often I saw them in our own half when we got the ball, it was hoofed up top to obviously nobody. All that does it make others run out of position and use more energy. For example....last night a cross came in and I had to cover half the pitch to stretch for that miss from LCM....where the bloody hell was the 2 strikers and CAM?
All in all we improved loads but stupid things are letting us down, and stupid cheap goals due to no pressure in closing down the opposition.
the only down side to 5-2-1-2 is its prone to counter attack thats where a handy GK comes in since 98% of clubs use 5-2-1-2 the game comes down to who has the best ST if your forwards score alot of goals then a GK is not really needed but if they strugle then a GK would stop you conceding cheap goalsInsanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
Thanks for the help Cookie, anyone fancy a turn in goal?
Yeah as Stoney said lets just keep the ball a bit more and don't panic in the final 3rd and go for the L1 and triangle lobbed ball thing every time, it is tempting because sometimes it looks like it's on (I am guilty of this too) but it normally isn't as the defender can see it coming.
best shot to use is R1 curve shots a well placed shot a gk has no chance of getting to when running up the wing do a fake shot and cut back this will give you space for a pass or room to get past a defender when on the edge of the box hold R1 when shooting this will place the ball away from the GKInsanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
if you can find 2 friends that can play GK you can then rotate them and they will also be loyle, if you find a GK from the match lobbies all they care about is stats and will leave if your team keeps winning a VP GK rated 80 will still make better saves then cpu gkInsanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
There we go then guys. Get your pros up to a reasonable rating and were also start trying to find a keeper/train one up.
Our pace is shocking
EA needs to sort out the defending VP thing, defenders are always ignored. I still remember on Fifa 10, my pro was signed to and was asked to score around 15 goals a season as a right footed left back -_-. I was like freaking hell, im asked to contribute more goals than the wingers :S. My virtual pro was doing a Dani Alves most of the time.
This Finese shots are great for great for beating the Keeper, the only problem is right now no one gets any time with the ball in front so ,just either pass it or shoot straight away with out using R1 O or Faking it which can usually win you a Penalty if the keeper come out to you
@ Stoney the reason why I kept dropping deep was to help out and make the passes shorter as we are still making to many errand passes or trying to long ball when im Crowded (I myself was guilty of trying to Chip through ball Stoney when I should of held it for a lil while longer till he had space and passed him a through ball
my thoughts are to stick with a Formation that gives us width to open up the other team (the last form we used which had me playing RCM was Horrible)
also don't be afraid to shoot in the box if there is no help around id rather the Keep save a shot than just take it from a players feet for no reason
Again look for players in Space there was loads of times I found space coming to help be another pass option for a team mate who would pass the ball to a crowded player.
Again GK try to pass it if you can out instead of hoofing it out as my player is only 5'8 with a low Jump rating which will give the ball to the Opposition most times.
Also I reckon Crosses work better than passes into the box as 9/10 it's too crowded to try a low shot at least a cross will give us a shot on goal
im more than happy to go back to ST and just stay in the center like my last ST game as it brought a goal and always had someone in the box when needed
Just my 2cents.
Stingray....I'll give you a few games if you want, put your VP as defender and keep tackling me. That goes for anyone else who can't be arsed against AI.
if you do go with 2 ST's have one be tall around 5 11 and one short this will give you more options in attack also if anyone wants to add me for some head to head or if you ever need a ST my PSN in MONKEY-OF-DEATHInsanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results.
