It is sometimes hard to estimate how a match will go, without knowing the formation and settings of cour opponent. And of course, there is always a lot of luck involved as well.

There is only one way to effect the course of a match after it started, and that is by playing a half-time direction trading card. Those cards will change your "tactic" in the second half of the match. This can be the perfect way to turn around a losing match.

The following half time cards are available:

Take it slow Team effort is reduced by 50%
Encourage (Common) Team effort is raised by 25%
Encourage (Uncommon) Team effort is raised by 50%
Full attack Team plays more offensive, more chances, high risk of counter attacks
Full defense Team plays more defensive, fewer chances for both teams
Play for free kicks Teams tries to get free kicks, yellow cards for dives
Get penalties Teams tries to get penalties, high risk for yellow cards

Half time directions can be played in any match type. You can save a card at the time you set the formation, or you can place it right into the live ticker up until 50 minutes after kick-off. (And of course you can change or remove the card added at any time until 50 minutes after kick-off.)
