I like the game overall very much. It's easy to understand, with all the basic features a footbal manager should have, really enjoyable. You can see how your tactial lineup is working on the field, which is also very accurate.
But then you watch a lifematch and see the behavoir of the teams. Ok i could life with the behavior from goalkepper, defenders and midfield, but especially the strikers behave ridiculous and like idiots, which ruins the game experience in my opinion. They don't shoot in promising positions.
Examples: The striker gets a good pass, he is alone around 10m away from the goal.
Instead of shooting, he turns around and make a 30 meter pass back... wtf
Then the striker gets the ball, around 25m away from the opposite goal, the way is free only the goalkeeper is in the way.
Instead of running straight to the goal and try to shoot, he stumble around until the defenders are there, and if he manage then to dribble around 2 defenders and stands in the penalty area where he could shoot, he go for dribbeling the goalkeeper also, where he finally loses the ball. So my team only shoot 4 goals in 10 matches, and only 1 of them was a striker goal after a corner, the other 3 of them were scored by free strokes. And i always had 2 strikers with good shooting ability on the field, but who cares if they don't shoot.
So please work on that dear devs, or at least make another possibility for the interaction menü while watching the game like: Shoot directly on goal NOW!!!
