    Well I guess the positive is that it should result in lower prices for the original cards right?

     Hasn't really made a difference to someone like Dybala

    Work rates? Instructions? Stamina?

    David Luiz couldn't sit in a back line if his life depended on it,Nor could Ramos neither of those fuckers stay put. I don't ever park the bus but i'll switch to defensive but there are certain players that refuse to do anything remotely useful towards holding a lead.

     I always enter a match with 90+ stamina to ensure they make it through the game.
    I like to think I have the workrates balanced. Wingers have H/M, Striker has H/M, Wingbacks have H/M (but most wingbacks do) the CMs either have H/H or M/M and CB's have M/H apart from Bailly, but I've never seen him go forward anyway. 
    As I said before though, for the first 75 minutes of the game, I can hold my own, the midfielders don't all rush forward, the Wingbacks are cautious, everyone can control the ball just fine but as soon as it gets to the later stages of the game, everything changes. All of the CMs go forward, the wingbacks go forward, ball control gets sloppy and sluggish.. 
    Instructions are usually high pressure, team pressing or just standard

    I don't know if it's the same for any of you, but my teams always seem to fall apart, lose shape and come out of position in the last quarter of the game. 

     

    I've been in Div 3 for a while now and I have to say out of around 10 draws, 8 of them are games in which I've been winning (usually by 2 or more goals) and it always ALWAYS seems to happen because in the 75th minute my team fall apart and decide to become really attacking and leaky at the back. 

     

    I know you're probably thinking it's just my fault, but I swear to you it isn't. 

     

    I can hold my own the whole game, dominating possession, creating 10+ chances a game, getting 2-3 goals. But in the 75th+ minute everything changes. 
    My 3 midfielders will decided to all go forward at the slightest sign of an attack, my wing backs will have made some sort of run forward and when the opponent counter attacks (because they just abuse high pressure and eventually get the ball) I'm left with 2 CBs who will fumble around and get in each others way, players will take awful touches and become really sluggish. 

     

    I've even tried setting my team to park the bus to defend my lead but the same thing happens, everyone wants to go forward despite being 2-0 up. I've tried setting it to a 5 at the back formation and park the bus, my wing backs are under instructions to not go forward, one of my midfielders are told to stay back all the time, one is on balanced and one is allowed to go forward. 

     

    I've drawn at least 5 games where I was 2-0 up because of this. 

     

    There's no possible reason my teams should fall apart like they do, once or twice I'd have put this down to just being one of those games, but for it to happen so often, it's more than a coincidence. 

     

    I have no idea what to do and for the first time in Seasons this year I've been relegated today after 5 losses and a draw, all in games with 1 goal deficit. Usually being 1-0 up and the 75th minute curse strikes again.

    Haha yep - seems utterly meaningless to me.

     

    I was really excited about these upgrades and they look awful from what I've seen.

     

    One example - Immobile has gone up +1 overall but he's only improved by a total of 15 in-game stats overall - most of them are just +1 to some stats. Why even bother with an upgrade if it makes no difference?

     But his SIF Stats have gone up, raising the price which is good for me Smile w/ teeth

    Switch Gundogan and Fernandinho and go to a 4-3-3 (2) with Fernandinho at CDM.

     

    Thanks to their high attacking workrates, you'll have both Marchisio and Gundogan moving forward either side of Immobile for some nice tiki-taka style 1-2s. Not sure if this will necessarily increase Immobile's goal record but you'll be creating more chances as a team.

     Okay thanks, I'll give that a go. I play 4-3-3 (2) on my other squad and always do reasonably well with that team so maybe this will make things better with this team too.

    Seeing as both my strikers in my two teams are big, target man type strikers I was thinking of changing one to a high pace, skillful kinda striker to add some variety.

     

    I would love Dybala but couldn't afford him, so I was thinking going for IF Muriel? 91 pace, 80 shooting, 87 dribbling, double 4*? With Cuadrado on RW?

    I have the TOTT Mane and I have to say he's insane. His pace leaves anyone for dust. 

     

    I've only used him for 11 games so far but he's had 4 goals and 7 assists for me so far. 

     

    He's very strong on the ball. 

     

    10/10 would recommend

    I get that sometimes too. Main attack force goes on goales streak funnily enough that occurs during the loosing streak..

     I can still win games with the team but it ends up being people like Mertens, Gundogan and Fernandinho picking up the goals instead. Just seems a waste to have such an ineffective player if there is someone better to do the job.
    This has gone on for about 25-30 games now.

    SIF Immobile used to be a goal machine for me. He used to average 1 goal every game, sometimes scoring 2-3. 

     

    Now, he's on a huge goal drought for me and his record shows up as 39 goals in 61 games. Seeing as this used to be 35 in 30 games at one point. His shots just seem so weak now, he has no strength and he can barely head the ball anymore. (60% of his goals used to come from headers)

     

    Do I stick with him and hope he picks himself up or shall I sell him and get NIF Higuain? This option would also mean buying Cuadrado as RW

     

    This is the team I play him in: http://www.futhead.com/17/squads/4678796/

    Instructing Witsel to stay back on the attack.

     

    Works incredibly for me.

    Quote from Seki >>

    Like all my players, my OTW Mané can hardly move, and certainly not sprint. His upgrade made my Mané 99 years old I guess. Slow af.

    I found his pace to be unbelievable. For the first time this Fifa I managed a through ball and he actually pulled away from defenders and managed to get 1on1 with GK. Beating even Bailly.

    I switched to a Serie A side last week and my game enjoyment has gone up significantly. SIF Brozovic, SIF Immobile, IF Perisic... these guys are just straight up fun to play with.

     

    I've given up on WL so the squad restrictions don't affect me.

     I use SIF Immobile, I agree that he's amazing but lately he hasn't scored many goals for me at all. He used to be scoring 1 or 2 for me every game but he's on a huge scoring drought :-/ 
    Do you think he might be inline for an upgrade? He's been playing pretty well for Lazio this season

    I hear what you're saying mostly. 

     

    90% of the teams are 4-3-2-1 BPL squads who just abuse the high pressure command. 

     

    I enjoyed it up until I got into Div 3, the divisions before 3 saw some variety in game play, but 3 and above has all just been the same high pressure pace BPL teams.

    More more excited for the +8 phy to 86!

     Glad I bought his TOTT card a few days ago for 153k, he's now at 220k and rising!
