I'm playing central midfield and haven't cracked how to secure good ratings either. My manager seems to want me to stay in the opposition half taking shots at goal but that doesn't secure me good ratings. I've decided that this team just isn't a good fit, despite getting in the ligue 1 team of the season. I'm desperately trying to secure a move out of the country.
I just finished my first season, and towards the end got in one game rating 7.5 in amf and one as 7.0. The 7.0 game was though a dream game, managed to do good passes and almost a goal.
Looks like in AMF it matters a lot to rating to get SHOTS on goal, which is surprisingly hard.. The pain is that also to get good ratings, you should TRY and preferably pull off good through passes. Thing is of course, if those fail your ratings fail as well D'oh!
Also I've learnt now to play better safe passes in AMF position, and how to dodge goalkeeper opening passes as I'm crappy with headers
Playing with Norwich but looking to change to a team with Stamina training as my stamina is very low (67), Dortmund as one choice, but the bad thing is that they also train a lot of Defence which I wouldn't like to have too much, as I would hate to be converted to DMF or CMF..
