    My Free Kick Specialist lost the touch ...

    In previous season I bought a scout, MC Free-Kick specialist who earned every Token I spend for him. Beside his good performance, he had over 50% in free kicks, having as you can see 11 goals in 13 league matches, 12 goals in 8 CH.L. matches and 6 goals in 10 Cup (most of them by Free-kicks)

    My Free Kick Specialist lost the touch ...-lost-touch-2.jpg

    This season his stats at free kicks dropped to 20%. His performance is still good but his low % maybe 'll be fatal for the team. This is from the last match I have in CH.L..

    My Free Kick Specialist lost the touch ...-lost-touch.jpg

    He had 0/5 in free kicks. Fortunately I won, but in a Cup game if he could score (0/3 free kicks) I would be in the next round.

    Did he lost the touch ? Can I hope for a come-back in next season or it's over ?

    I usually buy a Scouted player per season. I had an MC FK specialist that scored 30 goals in his first season and gradually wound down until in 3rd season he couldn't get it up............and over

    My non-scientific clutching-at-straws observation is that there is a three season itch. Other Scouted players tend to slump at end of 3rd season start of 4th. (See my theory is falling apart already).

    Ofc there is also the fact that with slow SP gain eventually even MoM awards will not be enough to keep his performance on SA spefic abilities high.

    That's what I 'm thinking. If he lost his SA (for ever ?) and the next season would be just a descent 5* player maybe I could sell him near the end of the season, to get some good money and start investing in a nordgen for FK specialist.

    Any player who has consistently good ratings is good enough for free kicks. I have winger who is specialist for corners, but even as 4-star he often scores 2-3 free kick goals per game. Once good player will be good again, so don't worry. But, next time buy a striker or winger with FK ability, 'cause you will boost his attack mostly and that will also affect free kicks...

    I'm not recommending buying Mr Scout players....just reflecting my experience with an MC FK specialist's performance tailing off. Players from Mr Scout are a quick fix - I buy 1 if there is a good one there because its 1 less position I need to trawl the Market for (lurking on the market bores me).

    I have a ST FK specialist thats not very good with FKs, my Academy AML with Shadow Striker is better (recently) with FKs.

    PS. I need a new AMR/MR next season so I'll probably train FK on him like Wolfie suggests (got an Either footed MC with CK SA and I'm quite happy with him as he's my offensive MC).

    Since I never had any AM with Shadow Striker SA, I'd like to know how useful this SA is on them?
    Is it more useful for AM or maybe for MC (because MC like to shoot from distance)?

    I don't belive that a player is lost suddenly, I think that like happened to me with Edgar Davids, the player need a level of stars in the attack skills and defense skills (probably defense) to recovery the % effectiveness in free kicks...
    In the case of Edgar Davids he was a very special MC because was proggrammed to do the same action in the 70% of the matches and score, the action have a name in spanish that I can not translate and rarely Ive seeen in another player, but basically is a hard shoot from far away suddenly that becomes a goal.
    When seasons passed and the attacking skills of this layer were lower than 5*, he lost this ability, but I trained him and again recovered the action he did.
    Train mate, as I've said I don't belive that this game is proggrammed in a very complicated mode, that say that with 26 years the player loose an ability or a %.... the % or ability is lost with the Quality decreasing.

    I'm afraid Shadow Striker is not an easy one to track and assess. All I can say is he likes to shoot more than my AMR who is a Dribbler.

    Not possible to get SS Sa on MC unless you buy a Norgen with it already there or train AMC on an MC then train SS SA - which is a lot of work and I've not tried it...yet.

    As Khris says keeping up att skills by training is good way to keep up FK performance but that has limited impact on a Mr Scout purchase. Much better for Academy/Nordgen fast trainers.

    Some defenders (usually scouts/ex scouts) have FK or penalty kick SA, so it is always possible .
