If you have the ball and are outside the area but not on your half, you can check on the map how far the keeper is off his line. Normally he is about two meters. You can lob him easily if you get the power correct.
Easy unlockable points:
Advance through the game modes and select Tournament mode. Select any cup tournament, as they tend to be shorter. Select the highest rated team or replace a team in the tournament with a highly rated team from another league. Advance to Tournament Central and quick sim all the games until you have won the tournament. You will be awarded unlockable points to spend.
No matter what team you are in Manager mode, buy the best free agents in the transfer market. Sell them during the same transfer market window so you do not have to pay the high salary. Because they are free to you, once you sell them you can get the added millions to your bank account.
Play with the 3-4-3 combination. You will hardly lose any matches, even if you quicksim them.
When starting a new Manager mode, select Arsenal. Remove some of the players that you think will not play in your lineup. You will always succeed.
Always refresh the contract with a salary much lower than he gets.
Do not to go too low or the deal between you and the player will fail.
