Surely might as well be called the suicide button?

I mean has anyone ever used this option, in what way could it possibly benefit your team during the game?!
Maybe if you've rn out of subs, are winning comfortably and have a game soon you want your players to be fresh for?
I use it alot if I am in full control of a game knowing I have another important fixture coming up soon and need to rest players... very useful when you control the ball

First of all take a breather is the best option when your players play a lot of matches in a row and you want to save some stamina consumed in a game which is always but always control and standard mentality and of course you use this option in the last ten minutes!
It is dangerous and useless when you use counter attk system and attacking cause your players in order to save stamina and condition will be prone to mistakes and unless you are 2 goals ahead you could see the team against you overloading your defense and put pressure on you!
usually i shout it near the end game if i see opposite team making pressure on me,with 1 goal difference...for me its similar to waste time option or to buy you some time,your players will start to pass around each other even getting goalkeeper into play more often. Its funny to watch them pass around and not attacking while time is running out
Where do you find this option? haha

play a match ... once on "Classic Pitch View" screen there's a toolbar Instructions ... select Issue Instruction & choose "Take a Breather"
