PIRLOOOO DA GOAT scores from a 35 yard free kick that the goalkeeper tried to slide tackle to save. make of that what you will. the new patch (which i hadnt realised hasn't installed properly) fixes a lot of the problems. still get the odd mistake/bemusing situation, but im beating lower teams at home, which didn't happen before.
You get the sense of what they're trying to do with it but its far from complete. Its been better today.
Agger and Skrtel are an immense pairing, but Agger just got injured so i'm hoping Wilson can play like he did on fm11 seeing as Coates is garbage and Carra isn't much better.
Oh and i'm pleased that they have got a better ratings system for defenders. On previous editions you'd for the most part only get a high rating as a defender if you scored or your team won by heaps but so far i've noticed Skrtel getting high ratings purely from good defensive play which is nice to see.
Defensive ratings have been a bit ridiculous. Faure and N'Gouma keep getting ridiculous ratings for my Rangers sides, when they do about 5-6 tackles a game, and complete them all. Few interceptions. But maybe I'm missing something. Suppose it is better than giving them higher ratings for just goals, though. They need a better system for midfielders, outside assists and goals, too. Key passes don't cut it.
