    Getting the most out of Advanced Playmaker (Coutinho)

    I'm having some difficulty getting the most out of my CM playmaker, Coutinho. Hoping someone may be able to help! I had some initial success with him as a CM-A as that role gets him into the box frequently but his best attributes (dribbling & vision) are almost completely wasted in that role as...

    What to do with this guy?

    Incredible potential, great personality & developing fast but a 5ft9 CB with a jumping stat of 3 is not going to cut it for me. Stamina, dribbling& crossing aren't really good enough for him to make a FB & I like my ball-winning-mid to be good at winning balls in the air as it's incredibly...

He's also an incredible crosser but average finisher...

    Inside Forwards & Two-Footedness

    I've been watching a few of my games in 'extended' playback recently to see if there are any tactical tweaks I could make. I've noticed that my inside forwards do still end up using their weaker foot surprisingly often. I'd say about 30% of their final balls (either passes, little crosses or...
