I've noticed that my central midfielders (2 x MC and 1 x DM in a 4-3-3) rarely score above 7 and often score a 6 - even when we win. At the end of the season, where most of my players season averages are over 7, my MC's and DM's hover between 6.5 and 7. Every now and then a superstar central midfielder might rate a measly 7.10 after his career-best season.
This has happened in a bunch of diferent teams with hundreds of different players and it's a consistent fact. The players all have comparable star ratings to the rest of the team but for some reason the blokes in the middle just don't rate as highly as the strikers, centrebacks, keepers and wide players.
Is it my tactics or has anyone else noticed this with their own tactics?
Note - my tactic is pretty good and I win a lot of games. Like I said it's a 4-3-3 focusing play through the middle (ie. DM and MC's touch the ball a lot). I don't think it's my tactic causing this anomaly so I'm interested to know if anyone else finds their central midfielders getting lower scores than all the other players.
And if so I guess it's a bug.
