    On another note, is there any benefit to having younger players in this game? My entire bench seems to be months away from retirement.

    If they're playing in real life they'll hopefully improve and give you extra value, where as old players will decrease in value.

    On about Greizmann, I have him in the other world and he never manages more than a goal every 3 games for me even when he's been our main striker.

    In your tactics, check to see who is assigned each role under player instructions (microphone button in the app). It defaults to a central midfielder unless you focus on another player. I think I had Kante set all season without updating and he had a ton of goals too.

    I have him in another game world playing a 9 in a 4-3-3 and he has 10 goals and 10 assists in 18 appearances

    Oh yeah I know about the points improvement, just wondering if there's any other benefit that I'm missing out on. These senior citizens are all dirt cheap so I have no way of upgrading to comparable younger talent.

    So I guess Griezmann is just shit in this game, all I ****ing need. :laugh: Might end up benching him for Quagliarella at this rate.

    @David is it OK if I decide to make a swap after all? I'm just having trouble finding cheap younger players.

    Just had a look & you've been pairing him with 89 rated strikers? That won't help. Also, Red devil always used to play 4-1-1 & even though he had a better side I'd always beat him so a formation change wouldn't hurt.

    It's not just more goals, they get more assists & in general have more impact. In the Torino game whichever one of Messi or Ronaldo I play up front gets POTY, Ronaldo even struggled at first til I put him up front. & my results improved when I switched Messi from RW to FC when I only had him. It makes so much difference that I built my draft in this one around having Ronaldo as the 9 (so l haven't drafted any players who sorely play FC & I built my formation around him).
    No wonder he got 8 goals from CM! :laugh: But yeah having your 9 as the target man is another thing, but I thought that was self explanatory! Also have your best player taking free kicks, some of Toni's goals woulda been free kicks.

    I've never even looked under that instructions tab tbh, I focused mainly on formations and substitutions. Although it seems a bit odd that a CM ended up as my target man by default. :confused

    Going to just go 4-4-2 with Piatek and Griezmann up front. I've fiddled around with the instructions to make my style of play more direct and based on width. Can't do anything about the 89 rated strikers unless Piatek gets another boost.
