@ScouseSte Agree broadly with both of your points Scouse. I think an inaccurate cross should just be treated as a pass - so 1 point. Different approach to you but the same outcome. Why an attempted cross should be worth 3* more valuable than an attempted pass is a mystery - it is more likely to result in a loss of possession for starters. Maybe as it is a more attacking action, we could settle on 2 points, but 3 is too much.
GWG to be only awarded for the decisive goal in a clutch game makes sense as well, but i do suspect if this was changed it would devalue forwards even more. Last night i benefited from Dortmund scoring against Barca to make it 3-1, which boosted Messi's score and reduced Suarez's. Barca were 3-0 up so Dortmund's goal made no impact on the result, and to say it was Messi's goal that "gave Barca the win" is a huge oversimplification. Maybe if it was 1-1, and then Messi scored, it would feel more like a winning goal.
If GWG was to be scrapped or made more complex though, i feel there would have to be something else added in support of forwards. Perhaps a bigger reward for attempted shots as currently they only get 3 points, same as a cross, and you lose 10 if you miss a big chance.
