I don't know about you guys, but in my case, if the ball is in the air anywhere near my player I lose control. My player chases the ball and often ends up in a bad position. I'm having to use super cancel ALL THE TIME.
I've also noticed my player sprinting if I so tap a button when the ball is in the air.
However, using Super Cancel has become somewhat of a natural thing by now anyway, so it doesn't bother me as much.
