Not scoring any direct free kicks


Recommended Posts

Anybody else having problems with this. I just finished my 3rd full season. Was in champions league and so far, I have not scored a single free kick goal or have had one scored vs me in all 3 season. I’m playing in England premier league all 3 season. So have those amazing players against me. Also, 1 full season in champions league losing in feb in first playoff game round of 16 vs PSG. So all those amazing champions league players and still no free kick goal.

I have it the other way though 80% of them are scored. I groan when a direct freekick is given against as it is an almost guaranteed goal.

can you show me league stats, i am playing FM Touch

Yeah I have the same problem we have about 8 free kicks max scored in the league each season on my online save. Long shots are also an issue the rating mean nothing, I bought a player with 18 long shots yet everyone he takes Lands near the corner flag.

Thought id add my experience to the tread im playing as Arsenal 3rd season with a world class squad, with FKs im lucky if its on target! scoring one is a dream most go over and the ones on target are low powered straight at the keeper.

Long shots are as bad lots of crazy banana shots from crazy angles that end up closer to the corner flag, even 1v1s are frustrating always shooting near post rarely across the goal 😒😡.

It seems like my one on ones are always shot right into the keeper’s stomach. I’m teaching everyone to lob or round the keeper or place shots, we’ll see how that goes.

I was about to agree that I've only seen 1 or 2 scored in my matches in 3 seasons. But then I went away and saw another one scored just then (with a free kick attribute of 12).

I think it's something that SI want to have relatively low stats on, but this is one of the things I wouldn't mind if they bumped a bit from real life.

in the save i just started , its in december and league has had 10 direct free kick goals so far. you are not going to get a high number anyways. top team last season in the EPL at free kick goals had a grand total of 3 for the season. i read somewhere where the average is around 5 percent of them being converted. might have been a old average but looking at the stats for the EPL, sounds about right when the top team has a grand total of 3 in 38 matches

I'm in Feb 2018 in the Premiership, and 13 direct free kicks have been scored so far, with Chelsea, Leicester and Man Utd scoring two apiece. I'd guess that's going to end up pretty much in line with the stats @Ross Ingersoll linked.

Even Beckham, in more than 250 PL games only scored from 15 free kicks. I think everyone needs to adjust their expectations.

@Ross Ingersoll fair enough top teams only score up to 5 free kicks per season in the league but that stay is affected by a the ability of the free kick takes and the amount  of the free kicks.

In the game you're lucky to score 1 free kick a season in all competitions that's the issue.

While that might be true for you, it isn't universally true. In the season I've just finished with Man Utd, we scored four Premiership goals from DFKs, and another two or three in cup competitions. And you say, oh well, that's Man Utd, but I've also scored at least two or three per season in saves with Darlington, Gateshead and Wolves, none of whom had brilliant deadball specialists. Contrarily, even at United with Mata and Pogba taking free kicks, we missed a boatload, which is also realistic.

Nobody has said I free kicks are not being scored what I'm saying is not enough are scored in a season. Just because you've scored 8 in one seasons doesn't mean others are getting anything near that sort of return

As i said in my earlier post, the top teams scored 3 in a season in real life. not all teams, two or three of them. majority scored one or two for the entire season. I would love to see the team stats page where none have been scored by a team in three seasons in game because i find that very hard to believe.

You seem to have trouble following this thread. As Mr Ingersoll and I have pointed out, the free kicks being scored mirror the real-world stats with uncanny accuracy. If you got your wish then too many would be scored, and that would be inaccurate. Sad!

false, in serie a 2016/2017 season over 20 free kicks were scored, this season 13 ... I had an average of 5-7. the free kicks should not mirror the real-world stats, they should mirror how good a player is i.e. if a regen is created with '20' stat in free kick and also has other corresponding stats for free kicks he should score a lot more than reality .... sad!

You can't really start your argument by quoting real-world stats and then say "free-kicks should not mirror the real-world stats". Your position is that you think your team should be scoring more because you think your team should be scoring more. And you conveniently overlook the fact that in the real-world, free-kicks are generally taken by top players who are really good at taking free-kicks... surely they should be scoring "a lot more than reality"?

Since your view seems to be that reality doesn't matter, this discussion is rather pointless.

Yeah don’t worry I noticed you cannot say anything remotely negative about the game, it’s pretty pointless, just was proving the fact that SI say they are mirroring real world stats when clearly they do not.

and when I mentioned a regen player, why not? it should not match reality because that player does not exist (or existed like Juninho) !! and by the way Pjanic scored 3 free kicks in 3 seasons (when i played with sassuolo) in serie A so you say it matches reality when once again it does not Pjanic scores at least 3-5 per season.

Only about 5-6% of DFK result in goals, so by those maths, you'd score 1 goal for every 20 DFK. I'd say you have 2-3 DFK per match, so maybe 3-4 DFK goals per season is the average? I have to say I don't remember having conceded many, but I have scored at least 2 last season with PSV.

10-15 free kicks per season for the whole league is about right maybe one season could be less, I have 3-5 per season average so something not right. once, I had 3 free kicks for the whole league in serie A in 2 seasons. I am playing FM touch. anyways its the last patch so pointless, I am fustrated as I told SI in BETA that there weren't enough....I am back playing fm17 :)

As I've said in my saves it really doesn't. I've clearly said I'm lucky to see 1 freekick scored every season. I've also said that the free kicks scored in my last 3 seasons were around 8 which is ridiculously low compared to real life figures. It's sad just because u believe you're right you don't realise that other people are having different results.

The guy is clearly saying that if ratings for the real life players generate 3 dfk goals a season then if you have regens with better abilities than the real life players the total of 3 dfk should increase. How hard is that to understand?

I've just finished a season in the prem with arsenal. There were 5 direct free kicks scored. 2 from Watford, 2 from west Brom and 1 from Burnley. 

Just had a look at the Spanish league and Italian which are view only, 56 and 34 direct free kicks were scored respectively. How can si continue to pretend that nothing is wrong?

There have been 13 direct free kicks scored in the EPL already this year. Having 3 or 5 in a season is very, very low and unrealistic. Last year the EPL had 27 direct free kicks scored, 25 in 2015/16. So they are down some in real life this year, but there is an issue in the game too. La Liga had 34 direct free kick goals last year.
