  1. I didn't scout my opponents unfortunately for more details, but saw this brief report in my inbox. As you can see, primary source of assists on both situations (scored & conceded) are crosses. I think real life stats are somewhat misleading, I support Spurs and watch their games, this season's been a bit of a mess in terms of how we play, but last season and the season before we have scored a fair from crosses but most of the goals came from passes inside the box, through balls, placed shots inside/outside the box, etc. You can watch a video here. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_J-2IUV7WQ0
  2. The thing is your side is not probably one of the top in the league (might be wrong though) so the teams you're facing are not defending as narrow as possible so through balls are easier to be played.
  3. Hi, is it only me or passing combinations look weird? This is what it generally looks like now, in FM17/18 there were better shaped triangles especially in the middle of the pitch.
  4. Yeah it’s some sort of a bug, you should report it in the bugs sections if you haven’t already. If you look at my posts history, I have posted a similar issue with my subs, you can try posting there.
  5. You can limit the number of crosses of course but with that you reduce the chance of scoring goals because imo the ME still favors the 'wide play'.

    Too many assists from crosses

    So that means we can expect a more mixed play in the next hotfix/patch?
  7. Man Utd are top of the league in my Spurs save, I think they lost once and drew once and won the rest of the games. Chelsea doing surprisingly well, they are second behind Utd, Arsenal destroying everyone lately and City are awful, they’re 6th on par with Wolves. Lol.

    Too many assists from crosses

    Currently 3rd with Tottenham. Scored 32, conceded 9. As you can see there were only 3 through balls leading to goals. 3. I wish I could check the stats for the rest of the league teams and I am sure there would be a similar pattern. I'm saying that because I checked most of the goals scored by the rest of the top 6 teams and most of them come from corners, rebounds, deflected shots, crosses and penalties. I can post more screenshots if it's helping anyone.
  9. Mind sharing a few of those goals highlights, mate?
  10. I’m just wondering if I’m seeing things or it’s a more common theme, so far I’ve played 14 Premier League games but haven’t seen many defence splitting passes. I have watched AI v AI games aswell to make sure it’s not only me but most of the teams score through corners (set pieces in general), long shots (thank God these are hitting the target more often than in FM18), crosses or penalties (a lot of them, but I understand this is some sort of a common thing in people’s saves). A different way to score is balls over the top but that happens only when there’s a high defensive line so yeah, what do you people think? I’m not having a dig or anything, just wondering if it’s a common theme.
  11. The early excitement of playing the game has slowly tempered over the few last days. I played around 24 hours since the beta release and about 25 matches in total. There are definitely some improvements and I’m yet to create my own training schedule. I’ve encountered a few elements that made the game less enjoyable. First one is injuries, getting at least one player out injured, never managed to field my best 11 this season so far. Just when I was about to do that, Alli got a 2 months injury on England duty, while Eriksen picked a short term injury on Denmark duty after being sidelined for 4 months with a broken ankle. I saw that SI are investigating the issue so I hope and think this will be sorted out. Another thing that’s been causing me issues is the AI defensive shape. I was never good at it and I admit it sincerely, we managed to win against bottom half sides through free kicks, corners, long shots etc. That’s an issue for me because it shows we’re relying on luck. Other than that, the game’s pretty stable for a beta version with the odd bug here and there but nothing serious.
  12. Getting an injury or more every game now.

    Substitutions not coming on

    Having some sort of bug myself (posted in another thread aswell), I selected "Make a sub" tab and it showed me this screen. It says he's been subbed in the 84th minute as you can see (strangely enough because I made the sub earlier in the game, around 65-70th minute). Now, if we close that tab down and take a look at the players on the field, Sissoko looks like he's still on. Tottenham v Galatasaray.pkm
