I am really pissed. My aiming is really random. I practice shooting against the wall from approx. 15-20 meters at a little angle, trying to shoot it 5 times in a row. I literally read every tutorial, how-to, manual, tips and thread about aiming I could find on the internet. I know how to shoot(knee over the ball, don't lean back etc.). But still I can't hit it 5 times in a row. Any help, tip, sharing your experience would be appreciated(and don't tell me to go practice, cause I've been practicing almost nothing but shooting for a veeeeeery long time)

You should try not practicing aiming so obsessively-mix aiming in with practising other things. Also don't get stressed about it and try not thinking about it and just believe that you can hit it 5 times. Also if u are good at passing think of ur shooting as a hard pass.
Hope this helps :D

i hate manuals.they don't help with shooting.everyone is different.what works for you is not what will work for others.
i recommend you relax when shooting and get a feel for it.shooting isn't about hitting a spot.a goal can be a toe-poke or a curler,screamer etc.you won't have time to set it up like against a wall,often shooting without looking up even.hit ball after ball.don't get wound up.you can bet zidane wouldn't hit it every time.make your own technique.don't judge with your eyes.judge with your mind.this gets better with experience and practise

when going for accuracy rmember u still need some power to beat the goalie. a combination of both is the key to gd finishing.

if you have your non kick foot next the ball then put up the opposite hand in the air and lean back a lil then i suggest you just dribble and try kicking at hte target to be more game realistice and pratice
