Struggling to score goals

Recommended Posts

So I've noticed a trend so far in my FM20 adventure, that my team seem to have way more opportunities to score than my opposition yet we still don't get a greater goal return. It doesn't seem to matter what my formation/tactic is. I've tried everything and now I've gone mad and even considered downloading a plug-and-play tactic lol. One season my striker had 172 shots in 22 games but only scored 9 goals. I need help here! What do you guys do when struggling to put away chances? It's weird because my opposing team always seem to be able to score them but not me, even tho I often have better players than them. Thanks

Could you post a screenshot of the tactic for starters? Because you may try hundreds of different tactics, and all of them could well fail to work (if your tactical approach/philosophy is wrong).

The thing is that it doesn't seem to matter what my tactic is, it's just that I seem to be worse at converting chances into goals than my opposition even tho my players have better attributes.

Not sure what you expect us to say? Theres no "do this and it will work for everyone in every situation" in this game.

First thing to do is decide if the tactic gets the best from the players.  Even if they are stars, if they are specialists or lack certain attributes for your setup they will perform less than there abort.

Theres also the opposition to consider, your setup might be good against some teams but struggle against others so you changed it which then made it worse against teams it was previously good at.

Easiest way to help is to help you develop a system starting with your teams strengths/weaknesses and why you've setup your tactic to suit them.  We can then help you with any misunderstanding and offer suggestions based on what you see happening in matches.

Otherwise you might as well go read some guides or watch some videos/streams for generic advice.

That's basically what I wanted to know - I was wondering if there was something in the game which could increase the chances of my players converting opportunities in every situation, as you might understand my frustration when I have the most created chances in the league by far yet don't score that many goals. 

I can't get my head around tactics this year, everything I create is just so inconsistent for me. I created some good tactics in FM19 that worked all the time, but this year it seems to be different which I like. I guess I will go and use some plug-and-play tactics just to see what works.
