I chose having a strong midfield because they are heavily involved in both defending and attacking which makes them the most important players on the field.

Creating chances ... without creating you cant score, and if you dont score you dont win .. simple.

Creating chances and accurate shots, those two together are unstoppable, screw everything else.

Ahh it was a hard choice between supporting/giving passing options, good shooting accuracy, strong midfield and team morale but I chose team morale cuz no matter how good your players may be they cannot take a whole team on by teamselves and chemistry allows them to support, pass, and create chances for one another so the team morale kinda sums all of the other options up.

Title-winning squads (at least in England) have all been closer than close-knit, and this chemistry makes a team tick more than anything else. Also, knowing where and how a player will be and play makes doing your job a whole lot easier, meaning you can do other things. Team chemistry easily for me.

I agree with mpcarres, of the six other things mentioned, there are at least four of them which can't be achieved without good team chemistry, its simple logic,

1) You can't just randomly create good chances, they require strong team chemistry. Scoring goals requires creativity that can only be achieved by a close knit team. Even if you get lucky every once in a while there is no way your going to win a match if you can't be consistent. Consistency comes from practice and team chemistry also comes from practicing a lot with one another. You simply can't have one without the other.

2) Supporting and giving good passing options is essential but without chemistry you will rarely be ale to realize where you should be positioned in order to give that good support or passing option.

3)A strong midfield is a good thing as well but what makes a midfield strong? Being able to connect with the rest of the team through strong support and goal scoring opportunities.

4) Having a good goalkeeper is fine but no keeper is perfect, if he is under too much pressure he will be scored on,

5) Passing a lot. Ya passing a lot is good but its impossible to keep possession for long without team chemistry.

6)Good shooting accuracy is fine but in order to take advantage of that you need to be in a good scoring opportunity a.k.a good chances and without team chemistry you will never be able to create the right atmosphere in which you can have good scoring opportunities plus good shooting accuracy goes out the window when your team morale is down.

I left both having a strong attack (strikers) and defenders out for good reasons... think about it and tell me if you know why.

sadly, diving for penalties and time-wasting wins games for some teams, but for some good teams pocession and playmaking does.

Chances are the biggest thing, by definition. No chances, no goals, no pressure, no win. Although, I think good team chemistry is really important too, as it lends itself to good... EVERYTHING.
