Players who always score against you

Recommended Posts

No matter how hard I try, I can't stop Aston Villa's young striker scoring against me. 13 goals in 6 matches against my Everton side and I can't stop him. My side have won the last 5 and not conceded a goal and yet he just bangs in another hat trick as though my defenders aren't even there. I know every team has a bogey player, but really?

In addition, I never usually replay matches but just now I was so disgusted by how the floodgates opened I restarted the game. 5 wins, 5 clean sheets, playing a Villa side who are 16th and they go 5-0 up on 60 mins. A bit hard to believe me thinks......

I had the same problem with Lukaku. In my 3rd season now and he's just gone to Bayern. :D

I'm just wondering how I can stop him and why he is always so prolific against me despite my defence being solid and in-form. What did you think I was trying to say?

It was always Nordin Wooter for me. But that was back in about 2000. Always scored against me. Always. :mad:

Opposition instructions?

I've thought about this. I've tried relying on just AssMan instructions and I've tried marking him, tackling hard, closing down etc. but he always finds space and always finds the net. I guess the only way to stop him is to just buy him. Anyone got £30m they can lend me?

I didn't. You just failed to add this to your initial post, so I had no idea what the point of the OP was.

Without any info, it's going to be very hard to give you any advice.

It wasn't hard to infer that this is just a thread for open discussion/advice about this particular problem. It's not something I've noticed on FM before so I was wondering if anyone else had similar problems.

I've had a few players who always score against my teams, but the two more unlikely candidates are Andre Schurrle and Leighton Baines.

Your post could just as easily have gone down the route of "the game is rigged" etc, which is why I rather asked for clarification.

I reached the CL Final in 2017 with Valencia. 8 mins in and I was 3-0 down to an Aguero hat-trick. To say I was I was gutted is an understatement :mad::(

A friend of mine is terrified of strikers with two last names, eg Sylvan Ebanks-Blake. They always score against him he claims. We now play multiplayer in the German leagues and his nemeseses are Richard Sukuta-Pasu and Maxim Choupo-Moting.

I remember this really fast regen that CSKA Moscow had during the 2030's in FM12, he was a decent player but never had a season with an overall of higher than 7.3, he didn't even have 20/20 pace and accelartion, yet every time I faced him, he scored, sometimes several goals, running at really fast speeds. Never worked out a way to stop him :p

I was managing as Atletico and Chicarito managed to grab 12 goals against me in his only season at RM (7 in competition and 5 in cup semi's). I was so happy when that loan deal ended.

Lukasz Podolski for me. Every time he came off the bench for Arsenal, then every time he played when he moved to Villa (including two hat-tricks). Even when he got too old to start for them and was unfit and slow, he would come off the bench to grab a goal.

I tried using all of the opposition instructions but any advice would be welcome... however it may just be the 20 he has for finishing

Darren Bent still haunts me from previous versions. Also Dean Ashton and Andy Johnson.

In one savegame i remember resorting to buy/trying to unsettle Bent :))

Dzeko in FM14. I remember hating facing him and even lost a CL-final due to him putting 5(!!) goals in the back of my net within 35 minutes. We had the lead 3-0 and then Dzeko came on instead of Aguero.

I then saved the game, edited Dzeko to play for a Swedish second division team the rest of his career. Yes, it was a low moment even for me.

Eden Hazard, every time. And the ***** in the media love it. :o

That reminds me: SI, I need a "hire torpedo" option in FM16, you know, "accidents" can happen *cough* *cough*. ;)

Excellent use of the managers wage!

Great, even moderators is derailing the thread and being rude.

Only option I see if you have the press mention a boogey scorer, is trying man marking.

Not sure it will help, since I've had one of those, he had 3 long range shooting, then scored a ton of long range goals, even a 30+ one.

Also you might be jinxing your team during the press conference, making him be way better than he is.

I've managed to stop Aguero scoring against me once on FM 15, across a few saves. Worries me more than Messi or Ronaldo.

Should probably try a City save.

Diego Costa. He scored in about 7 consecutive games against me. I thought I had him sorted when we stopped him for two games but then he scored in the next game. So he cored in 8 games out of ten.

Vincent Aboubakar - He joined Chelsea at the start of the 2015/16 season and he's been banging them in against me ever since. Usually at a rate of at least 2 goals a game. :mad:
