ok im playing as roma just getting to the start of the league and although im dominating my games im taking a huge amount of long shots

15 out of 20 in my last game (only 9 on target whole game)
16 out of 38 game before (ok not too bad).
23 out of 30 game before that.

now i have 3 players set to take long shots often and they are totti, de rossi and riise. rated 18, 16 and 16 respectivly with both totti and de rossi with ppm as shoots from distance.

what im asking is if i take these down from often to sometimes will they still keep trying the shots or will i be missing out on a strength that could get me some important goals. most of my goals are coming from distance but this could just be becuase of the huge number of them.

Well I guess sometimes still means they will try it anyhoo...

The option I am missing is NEVER EVER try long shots, even rarely is not cutting it :)

It could be because the teams you are playing are really sitting back and your tactic doesn't break them down and offer the man on the ball any options...so hence he shoots

ive tried to tone it down for a bit but kept it saved for away games, teams that are proving tough and maybe with weak keepers.
