Sure I could probably become a better player by learning new tactics but with so few opportunities to play against real people, it's not really practical to change horses now. I'm happy to just be a player instead of a student.
I just play for fun, but I've played so much that I've picked up a few things based on what works. I don't know or need to know WHY it works which is the big culture shock when I joined this forum to discover you've all meticulously deconstructed the game code!
Obviously the aim of the game is to win but it's also to play with style and variety - where's the fun in goal kicks up the middle every single attack, even if it is probably the most effective way to make goalscoring chances? I'd rather score once from a 20-pass move or a dribble the length of the pitch from defence than get 5 "boring" goals (as long as I still win!).
And (when I'm playing for fun, anyway) I'm more interested in getting more different players on the scoresheet than having my strikers score 9 or 10 between them. Simple enough with the wingers and midfielders, a bit tougher with the defenders (impossible for the keeper without strong wind or plastic pitch!), but that's where the challenge lies.
Having said all that, however, I suspect that in a competition situation against a superior player, I might adopt a more "win at all costs" style...

All my goals are unique children and everbody else's are repetitive stock goals.
Actually, if you score 7 goals in a game:
1 is a lob
1 is a corner, penalty or free kick
4 are standard finishes, i.e. 1v1 with the keeper
1 is that sexy brilliant goal that shows how great you are at KO2
If you try to make every goal an artistic masterpiece then you are still just going to get 1 per game.
