I have many problems and frustrations over this game but I'll make this rant fairly short. During attacking throw-ins, mostly at the opposition's half, rather close to the corner, my players seem to ignore my throw-ins instructions. I instruct them to 'aim to short' from both sides and I instruct 3 players to 'come short' for each side, not including the throw-in taker himself, for obvious reasons. Ultimately, at most times, only 1 player shows up. Sometimes, said 1 player will manage to get hold of the throw-in, giving it back to the throw-in taker and I'm back in possession. At other times, he loses the ball to the one who marks him and since no one is around from my team to put any kind of pressure on him, the opposition player is free to execute a deadly counter attack.

Does anyone else experience it? Is this a known bug? I wouldn't like to think I'm doing something wrong as it should be as obvious as it gets. If I ask 3 players to 'come short', obviously, I should see 3 of my players coming close to the throw-in taker, serving as passing options.
