On Diamond8 the number 9 is the most far forward. James seems to prefer it that way. Try lobbing the ball onto him (just shorter than a lob shot) and redirecting with a header or volley. Unstoppable unless you have a sweeper there.

Diamond8 is a very defensive tactic. Basically a 10 man defence and one 'goalhanger'. The 1 man attack works quite well as there is no confusion about who gets the ball. Pick him out with long, accurate passes (you will also notice that the ground passing is better with these players). If you have a really tough player at number 9 (J.Barrett is fairly tough, but A.Chapman from Chelsea rules) they can stand up to the physical challenge of the defenders and operate on their own.

After a while you will see why James didn't do better at The Gathering, as he spent 7 years playing me with such a tactic. The default teams and tactics do restrict the range of goals that are possible.
