Is it just me or does this never really happen?

For example: I play mostly as Liverpool manager, thus I have Torres.

'Likes to lob the keeper'
'Hits first time shots'
'Argues with officials'
'Moves into channels'

I see him hit a lot of first time shots. But when he gets clear of defenders, if he's running on goal he'll usually just slot the ball or power it into a corner. Hes very clinical, but I dont see him doing all that much lobbing.

Now a lob is usually quite obvious, the ball rises, its quite slow and is usually done when the keeper is far enough out of goal to catch him. Saying this a player could also just 'dink' the ball over the keeper, but it doesnt really look like that.

Ive never seen any player really use this move often, seems a bit redundant.
dont worry he will do it!! but he needs to break the offside so he can be only him and the keeper...its hard to do that and dont expect to do it on every game!!!
Thats what I mean though, he does get one on one quite a bit, but he either places or slots it past the keeper. No lobs. Not ever. I think about 2 or 3 in over 6 seasons of play and nothing.
