Match Magazine's Darren Cross talks FIFA 13 tactics once again with Matt Cuttle in another episode of The Boot Room.
This time it's all about taking your thumb off the buttons and using the right thumbstick.
The right thumbstick is mainly associated with skills but when used without the left trigger can turn your first touch into a stroke of genius.
Using the left thumbstick can take you past defenders, create time and space and also be used to beat goalkeepers.
Check out the FIFA 13 Tactics video to find out how and when to use it.
Want a cheaper, faster way to put together a fast, effective team? Try players from the Saudi League. Because it's a relatively unknown and unpopular league (FIFA13 is the first time it's appeared in the game), decent players can be found for cheap.
Christmas has been and gone and the New Year brings new players to the FIFA scene so I thought I'd start the new year by going back to basics and listing 8 fundamental FIFA 13 tips that will instantly up your game if you're not doing them already.
Applying these FIFA 13 tips is probably the easiest way to improve your play.
When I first got my hands on the FIFA 13 guide I was told that it would be updated throughout the year. It makes sense, the game was relatively new when the first edition of the guide was released and gameplay online evolves all the time and new techniques (and I hate to say it, glitches) appear all the time.
Obviously the fundamentals of FIFA 13 are going to remain the same but just like in any game or sport it's the players that adapt and fine tune their game that will dominate online in the long term.
Yesterday Joey dropped me an e-mail to tell me he'd just released the 2nd edition of his successful guide and added some great resources.
In Joey's own words:
Does your controller have bite marks in it? Is your bedroom wall full of head-shaped holes?
Do you run down the street naked throwing things at your neighbours screaming, “It’s &%$#ing scripted!”? (…just me?)
If so then this piece of advice is going to improve your enjoyment of FIFA 13 around a million percent.
Have you managed to get to grips with the new range of free kicks available to us in FIFA 13? Don't worry, you're not alone.

There's a new FIFA tutorial series on the block folks and it's one we're pretty excited about.
The Boot Room, a new series on EAVision hosted by Matt Cuttle and Match Magazine's Darren Cross promises a breakdown of FIFA tips and tutorials to help us improve our game each week.
In Matt's own words The Boot Room is:
"A weekly football show that takes an in depth look at the tricks and tactics available to make you a better FIFA 13 player."
Those pesky tight marking defenders. How am I going to get past them? With a flick over the back of course!
The flick over the back is a variant of the famous Bergkamp flick and can be performed either when the ball is passed to you in the air or after flicking the ball up to yourself.
A lot more thought needs to go into taking free kicks in FIFA 13.
With so many more free kick variants and options at your disposal it's going to take time and practice to find out what works and what doesn't work in any given situation.
Thankfully FIFATipzHD has gone some way to shortening our learning curve by coming up with this great FIFA 13 tactical free kicks tutorial.
