Thanks for the info.

I never get it until xmas normally anyhoo... so I always have a good 3 months of feedback to go on before deciding whether to buy. 

However, I'll buy it.  I know I will.
Like you said... there is no alternative.

Monopolies commission really ought to poke their noses in...

It is ludicrous, the amount of 90+ rated players flooding the game now.. the prices are rock bottom and makes having TOTS players an irrelevance.

It's sad really, what they have done to the game. 

Still playing it, as I actually enjoy the gameplay for the mostpart.. but the market is a farce.

Well I would actually go as far as to say I am enjoying it at the moment.

Currently have assembled a 'better' team than I can normally even get close to, thanks to the WC crash.. so it's been interesting.

Yes, I am.

I had completely stopped playing, but the market crash at the launch of FIFA World Cup re-kindled my interest.. as I was lucky enough to have a small pile of coins laying around.

The game and gameplay are screwed up?  Is that why I keep losing??  :D :D :D

Morning chaps...

Anyone having issues with the web app?  Last few days been stuck at 'Loading...'

Is it just me?

Good idea kiwi, shame I don't do it. When I get on a losing run I keep playing, senseless really.
I am the same mate... spend all evening into the early hours chasing the change in fortune... the elusive win.
Then when I get it, think I have turned a corner, and so play another.... And get hammered by some nooby pressure nut...
Go to bed enraged...  ;D

The other point is to put on some music - different tempo for whatever mood - that seems to keep focused & not let it get to you.

2 weekends back, the kid finished wining the last 14 games. Afterwards he said he listened to the same song on repeat for pretty much 10 of those wins!

Yes music does help.  Quite often play something fast... but actually that doesn't help.  Makes me sprint more... whereas my best game is played if there is no sprint button. 
This is what I always forget... stop still on the ball, and the whole game slows down around you... Sprint and you just keep crashing into pressure all over the park.

Just cannot fathom this game.  Starting to think it is just me, and my inability to be consistent?

One session I am stroking the ball around, and sides cannot touch me, and then the next session I cannot score a goal, or buy a win.

Got to the brink of promotion to D6 for the first time on F17.
Needed one win from two games... we all know how this pans out...

Lost the first one from a winning position, in the 90th.
Went ahead in the second one 1-0, and was bossing it by half time.
Oppo spent half time messing with his team, then came out and slaughtered me in the second half.
Could not get out of my half, or retain the ball. HOW do they do that???
Managed to keep him out until the 89th and then drew 1-1... promotion failed.

Got relegated to D8 the next season, then to D9.

Thought I'd post my current squads...

Newest XI.. BPL / Serie A / Ligue 1 Hybrid
Chiellini + Smalling.  Wow.
Been impressed with Cavani too.

My favourite team... Ghana.. Just pace, basically... with average pace of 86.3  ;D
Fwds: 92, 93, 95
CMs: 82, 80, 82
FBs: 86, 89
but best of all...
CBS: 85 and 79  ;D

And then my other two are run of the mill league sides...

Market is messed up - not sure if it's Xbox only.

Searching returns a page or 3 of expired items. You bid, but it seems like it's ignored & the timer simply runs down. Was looking to buy Dembele - currently going for 17.5k ... bid on 1 at 1.9k, ignored and expires. Bid on another at 2.4k ... same thing.

Some people making some great profit at the moment.

Not a good time to list stuff up then....

Shame I only have 700c right now!

Hey TWS, liked that 4th goal...

So what are your custom tactics and instructions?

It is the immediate dispossession in midfield that is killing me...   I can often stop them scoring for long periods - it is just the breaking them down.  I am playing 4231 also - do you send the CDMs forward on attacks?

Sad to hear about the crash with the Chapecoense football team.

I know it can be a bit of a cliche at times, but EA passing out the badge and kits did a bit of good and I was kinda surprised that most of the opponents last night had the badge and at least one of the kits.

Yes, I thought that was a really nice touch.  And really good to see most players using them.
Very sad.

Maybe I play this game too much ... :D.

Mate - we all do!

I use all those defensive features on and off...

I get the ball into midfield and bosh, the ball is gone, as their guy just swoops in and takes it... Just always puzzles me how they so accurately and consistently rob me off the ball.

I guess the people I play are better at using these features than I am! #younger

Ironically been going going okay last couple of sessions, since I came on here whinging!

Got relegated all the way back to D9.. so I guess that helps...playing people just as rubbish as I am!! lol

Thanks for the tips mate... as always

Hi Kiwi

But how do they invoke this 'auto defending'?  What is it... where does it come from...?

Why don't I have it!!?   ;D

They just run past my guys like they're not even there...

hey man, good to hear from you ...

kiwi and tws might be much of a help, as they are doing pretty ok ...

for me i am in div 3, what i play is 433 with 2 cdm and 1 cm (so a bit of a 4231 if you ask me). i pull back LW and RW towards to center and a bit back to mf. and use a custom tactic. i play on attack from the very beginning, otherwise i concede.

so counter attacking with a narrow and double man defending... when i get the ball, i spam L1 for teammates to join to counter attack.

Thanks for the tips... will try them out.
I am also playing 4321, on attack

Although the defending isn't the worst part (although the counters are relentless) - it is scoring goals I really struggle with.
I can keep them at bay for long periods, by tackling from behind using mids, rather than from the front using defs.

But scoring is almost impossible in many games.  I can retain possession in the middle third, but ...
a) My players are immediately shut down in midfield as if their mids are on some kind of 'auto defend' mission
b) and even if I do manage to retain possession in midfield, with very quick passing, I cannot get near their goal, due to the ten men defending it - and again shutting my players down as if they are flies to a lamp...

How do they play this way?? How are their players set up to defend so swiftly, accurately and relentlessly?
