Most Goals by a Defender - can anyone beat it!

30 posts in this topic

Now then, 1st season with York City in the Conference, David McGurk my Centre Back (and captain) scored 27 goals!!! they were mostly headers from corners, he wasn't my penalty or free kick taker either but can anyone beat that??

Yeah. I think the record is 35 according to the "records thread". Not by me - I don't care, and I don't exploit the corner routine. But there you go icon_smile.gif

I wouldn't be surprised if someone could beat that, defenders scoring from corners seems to be out of control.

Hehe nope. I just happened to notice no-one had put the results of their exploits up so I jumped at the chance.

Broke the record for most goals in a game by a defender in the process too. icon_cool.gificon_biggrin.gif

The weird thing is that when Breno got 4 goals (vs Coventry) only 2 were from headers. 1 was a tap in from a scramble after a corner, and the other was from about 20 yards out. icon_redface.gificon_biggrin.gif

Also got a hattrick in another game near the end of the season.

I admit I'm not a great manager, so every little (or big) helps.

There's a fairly obvious corner set up routine that brings an unrealistic amount of goals.

there's also a penalty exploit, where you play your goalkeeper upfront and he wins a penalty every game.

try it icon_biggrin.gif

I must say I'm yet to see corner bug in my game. I'm not using the exploit but neither does AI so far...

MY STRIKERS DONT EVEN SCORE THAT MANY icon_frown.gif

Rhys Williams - 5 icon_rolleyes.gif

My top scorer last season was Leon Constantine and Charlie Sheringham, both joint on 17... I got promoted but where am I going wrong!?!?!?!

This is avoidable though and the AI doesn't seem to exploit it, it is pretty easy to have a corner setup that scores a realistic number of goals rather than the silly amounts you see here.

If you look at the stickied change list I know which patch I would use.

Thing is, if I was losing in a cup final, I can't see myself not using the corner routine. I don't have a strong enough will power lol.

If you do that they get in each others way and you don't score many... not that i've tried icon_wink.gif

Richards scored 49 goals for me last season. Finisched topscorer in premier league with 27. Outscored my strikers by miles. All goals from corners. Scored 4 hatricks I believe. Rarely scored against a good team though. Mostly against lower teams played Chelsea 4 times I think and Arsenal 6 times and mabey scored 1 goal from a corner against them. They seem to know how to stop it.

Scored a 126 goals last season ithe league alone so even without the 27 from Richards I still score really easy. So its not that helpfull as you might think I win the league by miles every year even before the patch and against top teams it doesn't work so eventually in the cups when you reach the later stages and come out against Chelsea, Real, Arsenal and such its Aguero or Fernandez that need to make the goals.

I tend to use my strikers instead of defenders.

It looks like my tactic results in more chances icon_wink.gif

Piqué bagged over 50 for me, it's nuts, although my tactic was solely designed to win corners *cough*.

I scored 27 in 07 without this bug, (which I thought was impressive).

Luckily I haven't encountered this bug. Don't get me wrong, I score quite a few goals from corners but they are shared around by 3 different positions at the back post.

I had a little look at challenge GK options and stick it in there but it never seemed to work for me.

I think I'm quite glad really.

The game seems harder post latest patch, (and by recent sabatical), and that's a good thing.
