The State OF Goalkeepers In FIFA 17
We know that goalkeepers in FIFA have never been great, and sometimes they’re entirely broken. Isn’t it strange that they’ve never been truly fixed? Is this even possible? The game has to remain fun and you have to be able to score, but when the ball bounces towards the keeper, he should definitely not kick it into his own net.

There’s no denying that the initial shot should have been a goal there, but damn son, what’s the keeper doing?
Everyone Plays With The Same Player Instructions
FIFA might have a tactical problem. If everyone plays forwards with “get in behind” and full backs with “stay back when attacking,” does that mean the game is limited in its ability to handle other instructions effectively? Or does this simply mean that these are the best options by far?
Either way, it contributes to a stale metagame that settles extremely early in the game’s lifespan and doesn’t evolve too much.
