I fucking hate this shit sometimes
I play a lad
Real v L'pool I win 5-2
Real v L'pool beat 4-1
Nah, he fucks off.
I do that sometimes, mostly it's because I know I got lucky the second time and caught the other guy off guard. Players seem to forget it starts off back at 0-0 and fuck around thinking they'll easily beat you, then the previous loser nets a goal or two, original winner gets desperate and plays like a mad man which usually ends up with more goals for the previous loser. By the third game, if the original winner still plays, he's usually back to his better game. As long as they finish and aren't an ass that never bothers me.
What bothers me is kind of like what Jack Ellis said. I have LFC in my username (MOFieldLFC if anyone wants to add me as a friend and get a lesson..or give me a lesson
), so if I play a manc or blue they ALWAYS seem to think they just scored in the Champs league final or something. They don't just celebrate and watch the replay (I don't mind people watching their replays if it was a good shot, but regardless I never press A til they do, don't want them thinking I'm desperate and pissed although I am
), but they run to the halfway line to draw out the celebration as long as possible and watch their accidental goal three times, because for some reason they like to show the replay three times on the shittiest of goals.
I turn down other peoples voices as just seeing that they're talking on the screen gets to me, so hearing them say "you shoulda scored you suck" or anything would just get to me and most likely they'd end up winning.
Also, and I'm not trying to sound like I'm an expert at FIFA or anything, but I'm at level 30 or so and in the past ten games I've only conceded 3 goals. I'm sure the majority of it is just getting use to the controls and gameplay, but what has worked wonders for me is constantly controlling the CB anytime they're in my half, and using pressure instead of tackling myself. That way everyone stays in formation and generally do a good job marking, and since most goals are usually scored by my CB's not reacting quickly enough to a forward making a run, I always hold my line but stay behind the last forward (even though it's pushing the line back farther) and sprint in front of him before they make the through pass and run right pass my defence leaving only the keeper left. I don't know if I explained that well, but this has improved my defence x50. Also, if they playing up the wing and going for crosses, still control the CB and just stay about 5FTbehind the player you think they are trying to connect with, using the pressure button to let the LB and RB try to obtain posession. Sure it allows in many more crosses, but this way you're prepared to deal with it instead of hoping you can block the cross. If you don't block it most likely it will switch to a shitty player, or your player won't be ready to do what you want him to do, and in my experience anyway they score many goals that way.
