FIFA 17: My 87 Hulk at ST

posted on 23 Jun 2016 14:13 by fifa17 in Tips

This is my review of the Russian League TOTS players. The reason why I built this team is because I really wanted to use 87 Hulk at ST. This is the team, I will not review Boateng, Alaba or Neuer, because everybody already know these players. All my games are in D1.

Hulk The main man in the team. Even on 7 chem this man destroys everything! He is incredible, in the first 10 games he had 15 goals and 5 assists. WOW just WOW!( is providing fifa 17 points at cheap prices for gamers.)

Shatov has the Pace, 96 sprint speed. He will give any fullback a run for his money. His dribbling is close and he is agile. He will not loose the ball and if he is given a chance, he will find the back of the net! The only downside is his relatively low stamina 78, he will be out of breath in the 90th minute.
Promes The "cheap" Robben with a 4* WF. I really liked this dude more than Shatov. Even tho he is right footed, his strong WF will help alot! Great dribbling and LT+RT is a cheatmode with this guy! Pace, pace and pace!
SIF Eremenko THE engine of the team, he is litterally everywhere. Even if he is not a TOTS player this year, you will not find a better playmaker in the Russian League. He has longshots for days and playmaking ability of Iniesta. Great passing and he runs all day!

Dzagoev The other one, he is the deep lying playmaker. Great allround player who holds his how in the midfield. If he gets the ball, I'm confident with him to dribble past the opposition or pass it to your own team mate. He has a good shot on him too!

Wernbloom I really was excited to try out this guy, on paper he looked like the perfect CDM for this team. BUT this guy was the weak link in the midfield. I couldn't get this guy to work at all! He is almost always out of position, even when I instructed him to stay back. Nope, he was making runs to great attacking positions just to loose the ball. His controll on the ball is bad, just BAD! His shots went pretty much to row Z every time. If he was near a player he would get it back. But never did he do GREAT things for me.

Smolnikov One of the best RB I've used. His pace and defending does the job! He assisted Promes on the wing really well, his crosses is actually really good when he is deep inside the final third. Great to use in build up play. Better options for RB would be Zanetti, TOTS Carvajal and TOTS Srna. I really liked him!

Berezutskiy The other letdown in this team. Thank god for Boateng for holding up the defense, because this dude couldn't get the ball of a freaking child. He is so slow, that his defensive stats was irrelevant, players would just run around him. Stay at home defender, but not my cup of tea.

To round up this team:

Great for attacking plays! The quintet of Shatov - Hulk - Promes - Eremenko - Dzagoev was vital for me to win the games. The defence was the worst part, except for Alaba - Boateng - Smolnikov and shoutout to Neuer, the best keeper in the game! The two players Wernbloom and Berezutskiy was sold after ten games and replaced by Lahm and De Boer. Now the team is a D1 winning team, thanks to the "upgrades" Lahm and De Boer.

How to Handle the Trouble with Passing

posted on 22 Jun 2016 14:31 by fifa17 in Tips

Recently, I have had a lot of trouble with passing. It seems that the man on the ball has too much pressure on him to make thoughtful passes, passes are being intercepted, and there just doesn't seem to be anyone open to make a pass. Any tips?

Maintaining possession and effectively passing while being pressed is extremely challenging. It's everything in this year's game though in my opinion. Mastering it is ultimately what separates the top players from the rest. You gotta relax and look for the opening.

If it's heavy pressure, here are your options when receiving a pass:
quickly take a couple touches away from the pressure into space (backwards)
hold ground and shield with LT
first-time pass back
quick 1-2
dummy (LB)and hope he runs through
fake shot/scoop turn
Obviously you probably shouldn't attempt to dummy a pass to your back line or CDM. I do suggest trying all of these though and learning when and where on the pitch each is most effective. Do not attempt to turn into your opponent especially in your third or the midfield. You're just asking for trouble. Take what's given to you and wait. Just be calm and use the ball roll, drag back and reverse body feint when he gets too close and attempts a tackle. If he's running directly at you (in a line) and slide tackling, the roulette can be effective as well. Ideally you want to get rid of the ball before any of that's even possible... especially in your half. Giveaways here are what cause most conceded goals online.

Keep the ball and be smart with your passing. Be sure to set your tactics to short passing (<30) in custom tactics and use quick passes + lob switches to get him spread out. When you finally get a little time on the ball, turn and go. Don't hesitate. Learn how to no-touch dribble and chain a few quick 1-2s to get the attack started. It has to be fast though. You'll begin to see huge gaps opening up as your opponent scrambles to reorganize his opened up defense. If you can get enough of your teammates forward quickly, a driven pass to someone running at his back line will often get you a chance on goal. Don't use a through pass unless your teammate is wide open with plenty of space in front of him (although if he's clearly bending/angling his run and he's around the box, a through ball can be effective). More often than not you'll just end up giving it away as the ball will be played too far in front and the AI auto sends your opponent's goalkeeper out ridiculously early to intercept.

Honestly, the most difficult thing for me to learn was how to turn away from the rushing defender. Just take a soft touch and walk backwards with it. Roll away from the press and get rid of it. Keep doing this and you will see space open up. It's getting past those first 3-4 passes that is key to breaking high pressure.
