It's not difficult to bring the RB or LB forward
The problem is that the team move not as a block ( as it was last year and as it should be )
In Fifa 2004 it was more difficult to pass defenders but there was a team feeling. No surprise because EA asked a German trainer ( Erich Rutemoeller ) to help about the formation moves.
I had the chance to see a few top CL matches in Munich last year
Most of the time all the 20 players were grouped in 40m and it was very difficult to find spaces. Modern top football is a middlefield battle
In 2005, it is easier to shine with dribbling but there is no link between the lines. There are huge gaps.
So it's up to everybody to like it or not , although I have to say that the average Fifa player always play with the same team ( generally with Real , MU or other big names ) and prefer individual actions
Maybe that explain EA's choices from this year. They wanted to please a certain category of buyers
I will agree on thet BUT if you dont go with straight and fast forward passing and try to build the attack, also using the L1 on PS2 for player moving forward, you'll notice a huge difference on that matter. Also, team mentality and off side trap usage play some role on that so experiment a little more.
