A goalkeeper in Pro Clubs is a must if you are aiming big and want to become the number one club in the world. A pro goalkeeper is (in my opinion) the most important person of your team. If you are struggling to score or are just literally being outplayed, a good goalkeeper can keep you in the game, whereas a AI keeper would just fold over. 

 

 

1. Camera angle

 

Change your camera bend to ‘Pro’. It will be a lot easier this way as you can see breadth you are positioned in the ambition and it aswell makes it easier to see the aisle of shots and crosses too. The camera is set abaft the ambition and it pans with the position of the ball. Pressing baddest will change the camera position from abaft the ambition to the ball, which can be advantageous if the brawl is added up the bend for examination purposes. Watching from your ambition band is appealing boring! I wouldn’t acclaim arena with the ‘tele’ bend either. You can’t absolutely adjudicator if a attempt is traveling larboard or appropriate of the ambition or if you’re in the average of the goal. It may yield some time accepting acclimated to, but accept me you will acquire the allowances in the end.

 

2. Positioning

 

This is probably the hardest part of being a pro goalkeeper, your positioning. I often hold left bumper (LB on xbox/L1 on PS3) to keep my pro goalkeeper in position. Most of the time it is pretty competent, but when dealing with corners and crosses, I would strongly recommend repositioning manually!Keeping LB/L1 held also stops you from running out of position too much. The last thing you want to be doing is running around like a dodo bird in the area. Your goalkeeper will lose his composure if you do this, allowing the attacker to catch you off guard and possibly score as a result.

 

Some pro goalkeepers hate the LB/L1 function due to scripting errors so they like to manually reposition themselves using Left trigger LT/L2. Holding LT/L2 enables your pro goalkeeper to take smaller steps whilst maintaining his composure. It can be useful in some situations but to use it all the time, it is putting more pressure on you than you already have. It is like having all your settings on manual and the opposite having theirs on assisted, it is putting you at a disadvantage. Keep hold of LB/L1 to be safe.

 

3. Dealing with 2v1 (sweaty passers)

 

The only time I would consider not using LB/L1 is when dealing with 2 on 1 situations. This is where the attackers have broken free of your defenders and are coming straight at you. The opportunity arises where the attackers can perform what I like to call a “jobseeker” (known as sweating in the community). Their tactic will be to bring you out and just before you get close, they’ll pass across to the other attacker and score. Using LB/L1 doesn’t account for these. The pro goalkeeper will line up to defend against the attacker with the ball, probably at the near post. But when they pass, your goalkeeper will be out of position allowing an easy shot into an open goal. Don’t get caught out!

What I like to do in this situation is place the goalkeeper in the middle of the goal and just wait for the shot or pass. You are more likely to deflect the ball away then winning the ball charging at them. I’ve had other situations where the attacker has hesitated and then tried to pass across the goal to the other attacker. At that point I have then managed to intercept the pass by diving in its path preventing a jobseeker. This is no guarantee that you will always pull this off, it is a 50/50% situation. Blame whoever is controlling the back four for a poor job at defending. Never bring the back four out is my number one rule for defending. 

 

4. Don’t spam pass button

 

Have you anytime noticed a pro goalkeeper throwing his accoutrements into the air if the brawl is about the box area? Or, why a goalkeeper makes an acrobatic dive out at corners? This will be because the pro goalkeeper is spamming the canyon button. Do not anytime do this. This puts your goalkeeper in a accompaniment of abstraction breadth he cannot accomplish any movement until a additional later. This could amount you dearly with one on ones. A acceptable striker will try to trick/fake attempt you, acquisitive that you’ll be spamming canyon for them to score. Be assured and columnist canyon button alone at the appropriate time. The striker will no agnosticism alternate if you do not yield the allurement and you’ll be acknowledged in acceptable the ball.

 

5. Corners

 

Corners can be tricky at times. Do you rush out or stay on the line? My advice, always stay on the line. Keep LB/L1 held down and do not spam pass! Your keeper will then only commit to intercept crosses if it is close, otherwise get ready for a potential header on goal. A pro striker against an AI defender will no doubt get onto these headers. Your goalkeeper will have already reposition himself to defend against the incoming header so don’t panic.

 

However if you see the ball being crossed to the back post, let go of LB/L1, hold LT/L2 and position yourself at the back post. This is a popular tactic against pro goalkeepers where the opposition will expect you run out and punch the ball away. Do not get caught out or ever go for the punch out! 90% of the time the goalkeeper fails to clear the ball more then five yards! If the ball goes to the back post and you are holding LB/L1, you will find that your goalkeeper will not be composed. This will allow the attacker a good chance to score with a header going across the goal. Your goalkeeper will jerk towards the attacker first before becoming composed to dive back the other way, by then it is too late.

 

6. Goal kicks

 

Goal kicks depend on your playing style and other pro players. If you have a tall pro striker up front then it would be an option kick the ball to him for a potential nod on to his striking partner. If you choose this path, do not apply full power to the kick. Your strikers will struggle to gain the ball and you’ll most likely lose possession. Try aiming for around 75% power (green bit of the bar) and it should 9/10 times land at your strikers head.

 

If however you choose to go down the wings (my recommendation), you may want to apply full power for the wingers to run on to. Pro goalkeepers can kick well over the halfway line. You will notice that the opposition’s wingbacks never fill in the gap between them and the byline. Instruct your strikers and wingers to storm that wing and they’ll be guaranteed a through ball opportunity. Aim as far wide as you can before you kick, try experimenting when you’re next online to perfect it. You could also go short, but be wary of the opposition’s strikers luring around. Not my recommendation, I like to play it safe.

 

7. Saving power penalties

 

This won’t plan for acumen shots but you will be able to acquaint if the amateur is traveling to use ability as you can see the ability meter! So convenance this address and you will save a lot of ability penalties. If a appropriate bottom amateur is demography it this is the guide. If his larboard bottom (used to authority his body) is next to the brawl if about to shoot the attempt is traveling to the right. If his buried larboard bottom shows a gap next to the brawl if arresting the attempt is traveling to left. For a larboard bottom striker it is the adverse so attending at breadth his appropriate bottom is planted. If next to the brawl he is cutting to the left. If a gap he is cutting to the right. For both larboard and appropriate footed strikes if there is a abate gap it is traveling down the middle.
