    Something a bit weird is going on.....

    For two consecutive league matches now my entire team has lost the ability to shoot.

    2 matches, goal scoring opportunities in shedloads, but I keep getting "so and so is behind the defence" or something similiar, then "He must score". Followed by "But he puts it over the bar / wide / whatever". Whereas the other team has one opportunity and buries it. Yesterday, we managed to scramble in a 90th minute headed equaliser from a corner but today was a 1-0 defeat.

    I'm not just talking about strikers, but I ended up with midfielders and attackers missing the target too. Tons of pressure and plenty of opportunity, condition tip top, moral pretty good, etc. These are players that have all banged in numerous goals so far this season, nobody is even close to me on goal difference.

    What does Nordeus want me to spend tokens on now?

    The sarcasm was lost in that comment. See one of my previous posts "Nordeus ate my hamster"

    I'm really not one to moan, it just seems strange that it happens two games in a row. As another poster guesses, I am top of the league, and we are running up to the end of the season....

    come to think of it, it happened to me last season as well. my team had 20 shots fired - TWO hit the goal. I then lost big to a mid-table team I had beat easily (with the same tactics) earlier in the season.

    In real life, all players (especially strikers), go through phases where they can't do anything right. How often do we hear that this or that striker is going through a barren spell, and can't buy a goal, so why shouldn't it happen just the same here? These things just happen.

    Very true. But a whole effing team? Seriously, free kicks that normally sail in, one on ones, practically every situation that we have scored in throughout the season has been denied over the last three days.

    It is also true that when a team is successful and playing with confidence, luck tends to be on their side.

    The fact that I am not alone in this, makes me wonder if the script has already been written and also to question my efforts in managing the team when its fate already appears to be decided.
