is there a way to make striker with low composure efficient?

giving him lower, higher mentality?

retraining him to wing?

PPMs might help to mitigate his composure problem, if you can get him to learn a shooting one. Training might help too ;)

Otherwise perhaps consider trying to mould him into a forward who links play and scores every now and again?

Players with low composure can also benefit from the Hold Up Ball instruction. While HUB is most commonly associated with holding up the ball for a teammate as a target man, if your striker is making good runs and receiving the ball in good areas and literally wasting chances then HUB will force him to take more time to choose a better shot.

HUB worked really well for me with a low composure striker playing at a high tempo and high mentality. His passing speed was reduced so he would slow down a move he was involved in deeper down the pitch but the pay off was increased time on the ball in dangerous shooting areas when played through on goal. HUB was often the difference between a wild volley going over the bar or a low drive aimed either side of the keeper.

HUB is a very useful instruction for players playing at a tempo that does not suit their composure, and you will be sure to find a couple of players in your team that are not quite up to the exact level of composure you need for your chosen Tempo. Rather than knocking Tempo down a few notches and losing some of your cutting edge, you can use HUB to force certain players to take more time when deciding their next action.

At high Tempo the additional time given by HUB might amount to little more than the difference between a volley and a half volley, or a controlling touch rather than a first time move, however these small variations can be a big difference for certain players in certain positions.

And the penny drops about what you were saying about HUB for 09... thanks SFraser.

edit: am I right in thinking 'dwells on ball' is the PPM form of HUB?

This is wrong, they can't learn from each other like that (in the game). Would be cool though. As for the topic, composure doesn't matter much if he's got good finishing. Just look at Welliton, he scores for fun :D
