Long time reader, first time poster. Apologies for bringing up a topic that has possibly been done to death but after a quick search in the forum I wasn't able to find an answer to the issues i'm currently having with FM16.
I'll cut to the chase. How do you stop/prevent/negate crosses from destroying your sides chances of winning games? As they say, a picture paints a thousand words, so instead of me waffling on about my problems please see the images below that detail my frustration.
From the above it's easy to see that only five of the goals I've conceded have assist locations of the middle of the pitch, the damage is done from the wings. It won't be a surprise to see that the right side of my formation has an attacking right full back and I'm pointing the blame at the moment to this attacking fullback. I am slightly against making him support however as he provides a decent outlet for our team and you can see that the chap who plays on the right side FB has the best avg rating of the team.
I have a play narrower instruction on too, could this be the problem? I'm unsure.
Player instructions wise. I have both my fullbacks set to pass shorter. No instructions for them to sit wider etc. My CB's aren't the best but they should be good enough to stop 26 goals from the wings! I'm not sure if my defensive line is the problem?
Any help, advice, comments would be greatly appreciated. This isn't the first time I have been stung by crosses in FM16, each save I have played I have witnessed the cross, goal, repeat from the AI destroy any chance of success.
