When i first got this game i set the level of skill to the lowest for opponents and played as Man Utd. I did a fair bit of training as well as it gives you the chance to get use to the controls without opposition (pressure). The tip when shooting is to tap the square button very quickly if close to goal. Another useful tip is that when you are playing a game, check the health of your players by pausing the game (start) and select change player. Within this click on the R Button and it toggles between players position and players health.
