Hey there everyone. I just got FIFA 10 last week, and I've been playing on professional difficulty which I think is pretty good for me. I like to play Manager Mode more than anything else, so first thing I did was start one with Leeds United. There have been a few weird things I've noticed. I came to ask if anyone else has experienced the same, because to be honest I might just be feeling this way in frustration. First of all, I know EA says they've installed a new, more realistic and physical defense. But is anyone else experiencing quite a few ludicrous fouls every game? It seems like my players get pushed off the ball quite roughly, sometimes in the box, and a whistle is never blown, let alone a card shown or penalty given. Also, I never can do this to the CPU players, and I get carded for much less. I'm playing all League 1 teams obviously, so it's not like every single player is bigger and stronger than me. Sometimes my players make really stupid passes. I have gotten knocked out of the FA Cup now quite far into it because I was in extra time, 0-0, and taking a goal kick. I saw nobody of the other side near me so I felt safe with a short pass, yet all of a sudden one came charging in and the pass went nowhere near any player of mine, right to him, and for the game winning goal. In manager mode, I cannot simulate any games if I want to win anything. I lose at least 90% of the games I sim for some reason, it doesn't even matter who I play. I've had Leeds clear atop League 1 by 10 points, and I've lost consecutive games to the teams in 16, 19, 18, 20, 23, and 24th place teams, this after I started simming after playing a bunch of games to amount to a 7 game unbeaten streak. It's getting a little ridiculous. Has anyone experienced any frustrating issues the same or similar to mine? I've given up all hope on the PES series, I was hoping FIFA would fill my void.
