This only really applies to players with the Long Shot or Distance Shooter speciality, or players with a high statistic in Long Shots. However, it can work for most players.
It is difficult to score long shots from outside the penalty box with a regular shot. You might find it easier to do so with a finesse/placed shot. From a long distance, these shots are surprisingly powerful (if timed correctly) and are more likely to end up in the back of the net.
The reason for this is that there is far less curl in the shot from a finesse shot, so that it does not result in the ball curling out wide or towards the goalkeeper.
Although different types of players can grow in various ways, this system remains the same.
The Assistant Coach will always tell you of a raise in your statistics (that increase your overall ranking) via e-mail.
However, this actually decreases over time.
In your first season at a club, your overall rating can go up by around 20 points provided you are not injured during the season (this is regardless of whether or not you play...presumably these statistic increases occur during supposed training sessions).
However, in your second season of football, your rating will only increase about half as quickly. This progress will continue to decrease over about two or three more seasons, until you become similar to other players in that your overall rating rarely increases/decreases. Obviously, if you max out all of your stats, they won't increase anyway.
This Hint may be useful if you are determining what starting stats to give to your player, or what currently existing player you decide to play as.
Note - This Hint obviously does not apply to cheaters who give their custom player 99 in every stat. It also does not apply to Virtual Pros, as Virtual Pros can only increase their statistics via Accomplishments.
Note - this Hint applies to Manager and Player Manager careers only!
It is possible to save money when purchasing players. Sometimes clubs will demand an excessive amount of money for their players. There is a trick to get around this.
For example, let's say you want to buy Carlos Tevez. You offer Manchester City around £35/36 million for him. They are likely to respond asking for a higher transfer sum, probably something like £48 million or thereabouts.
At this point, the best thing to do is to withdraw from negotiations with the club, and then immediately go back and try to sign him again.
Obviously, the price they wanted for Tevez should just give you the impression that they wanted more money than you offered them. Instead of offering them £48 million this time around, offer them someting like £40/41/42 million and they'll probably accept without wishing to renegotiate prices. Therefore, you have saved a fair amount of money here.
Unfortunately, this only works with clubs. You can't do this with the players themselves when you are offering them a contract, as if you withdraw from contract negotiations, you won't be able to renegotiate until the next transfer window opens.
The method of moving from Captain to Club Legend in Career Mode (Player career only) seems quite confusing to some people. However, this is because it can't be done by simply winning a bunch of games.
In order to make it as a Club Legend, you have to max out your Captain rating bar (16/16) and then win a trophy (any one) at that rating with your club.
When you are on a poor run of form online, and can't seem to get the rub of the green, play 5 defenders, in a defensive style, and hit your opponent on the counter attack playing your teams more pacey players.
To help strengthen lower ranked squads in lower divisions, when the Transfer window is open, go into "buy players" and leave the "search last name" as "none" and leave "primary attribute" as "overall" then set the "min attribute value" as a value equal to your worst player (ie; if you're a 1.5 star team, with a player of 49 as your worst, pick 49) and then put your "max attribute value" as your highest players value (if you're highest player is 66 - select that)
Then scroll down until you find the option "position" - Select which ever position you're looking for (GK - DEF - MID - ATTK) then go down to role - You can leave it as "any" to get more results, or choose a specific role within your chosen position.
Then "transfer status" and select it to "listed" or "for loan" then go down to "Max transfer value" and set that to half of what your budget is.
Do the same with "max wage value"
Then scroll down to "player age min." and select 17. Then set the "player age max." to 30.
The press triangle to return to the top & search. Then go through the results you get to find players.
Important Note; DO NOT attempt to recruit/buy players from leagues such as the English Premiership if you're team is ranked lower than 3.5 stars. The players won't think you're league is "presitigous" enough.

|How do I make saves with a gk|
This is a tricky one but most people know. And I am one of them people that know. So, I bet you already know how to move when your playing with your team, Huh? Well, you do that and then hold ``L`` Then jump by holding ``X`` down. You will dive into air! So when your team are attaking, (this is another hint) you can attack the same with rush goalkeeper mode. But when your oppision start on the counter attack, you would think, dang thay will score BUT DO NOT!! Run ahead with the anolog stick holding down ``L``. If they are ahead of you in the goalkeeping box, hold down ``R`` same with ``O`` then you will do an backwords save which is real cool when you see it! So use these tips but they are Copyright so do not copy. Thank you for reading.
