Stupid Questions Thread (Tactic and Training Questions Only) in Tactics, Training & Strategies Discussion Posted November 26, 2013 Was wondering if someone could help me with some issues I am having with regards to passing out from the back; 1. Goalkeeper too hasty to get rid of the ball: This is a really annoying problem, will be playing it around nicely, run out of forward passes so look to go back to the keeper (good, I want that to happen), but when the keeper gets it he too often plays a pass back to the defenders straight away, or hoofs it long because there isn't a short passing option. What I want him to do is hold on to it for 4-5 seconds to allow my outfield players to reset their positioning and offer an easy pass for the goalkeeper. [Was an easy fix in FM13 by ticking 'Hold Ball Up' on keeper, but can't find that option , if it exists on FM14]. 2. Defensive midfielders and defenders standing on top of each other at goal kicks... this used to happen in FM13 as well and I find it incredibly annoying, it makes playing with DMr/DMl a lot less attractive imo.
