A striker typically gets 30 touches or so per game across 90(!) minutes. FIFA halves are 6 minutes, so for it to be realistic, you'd get around 4-6 touches per game :lol: Not exactly entertaining gameplay.
You could ask your teammates for the ball and be more involved. I once scored a hat-trick playing as a goalkeeper. Good times.

Football just doesn't lend itself well to the "control one player" type of gameplay. So much of being a good footballer is positioning yourself correctly, and making the most of the relatively few touches you get.

If you want to play a career mode kind of thing, you should try out NBA 2k17. Basketball, being 5vs5, lends itself well to that kind of gameplay and you're constantly doing meaningful things on the court gameplay wise.
While I agree, a decent teammate AI will help a lot.

PES is great at this, it helps the 'Pro' player by forcing some actions (like the pl;ayer will automatically move towards an open ball, etc)

LW & those stats. :(

Fifa ****ed up.... Although may have a chance to play with this card now!

I was already annoyed with how they underrated R9 but this is even worse. Pace should be at least 95. Dribbling should be over 90. Passing should be no worse than 88. Shooting should be 90. This is like the stats for Henry in his last season with us rather than prime Henry. There is no way prime Henry should be lower than Neymar(who I absolutely love but who is not at that level yet) in this game. Disrespectful.

Seen rumors of extra position changes & even multiple Icon cards of the same player. :confused: Could explain Thierrys card I guess.

Credit to EA they really know how maximise their profits. UT alone must be pulling in close to half a billion.

Found passing + crossing to be way more accurate, faster & op.

Dribbling & running with the ball significantly slower.

Low driven shots still fantastic but gap closed between regular shot & finesse shot.

Defending bit of a nightmare... have to be far closer + accurate for both sliding & standing tackles.

Expect more demand for passers in midfield now regardless of pace. Target man is a must now cant be doing with a Lacazette up front... Height wins all in the air.

I really hope they've sorted the career mode I'm sick of winning the treble and being told "were looking at other candidates" when applying for a new job at another club is a load of bollox.

When simulating a match fix the glitch where both teams score on the exact same minute. It's been happening for the last 3 series's ffs.

Also once in a while drop an exceptional player in career mode somehwere somebody about 19 years old with a rating of 87 (the next Messi) or whatever

Bought my favourite ever FIFA game ever the other day, FIFA 09.

Trying to relive the glory days, both of my youth, and of our banter era.
