Hey guys, just a small problem was looking to see if anyone could help..using a tactic i like just but not sure how it can be tweaked to fix 2 small problems... problem one is I'm getting a great number of shots per game but not many on target and the second is probably connected with the first but my attackers always seem to shoot from such a distance and most the time there not even close... not sure what i need to do that might change this to better the tactic i I'm using??
not sure about the scoring goals mayb just train attacking more, but with the players shotting from distance all the time try working the ball the box see if that helps out
You are probably correct about the two being linked. As Mike said before me, try using the instruction 'Work Ball Into Box'. It's possible, although not probable, that this will solve your problem.

In case it doesen't, the issues you described root deeper. Your strikers might not have enough support to continue passing and decide to take a shot from distance, they might have the 'Shoots from distance' PPM, you might also try to limit their long shots via player instructions.

Look at your tactic, follow the flow of the game over a longer period of time during a match. See the situations which usually cause the long shots and put your mind to how this could be fixed. Good luck!
