    Another popular modification of 4-4-2. The 2 Central Midfield was moved back as a Defensive
    Midfielder to back up the defense. This is
    quite a defensive formation.

    A formation using 3 striker. Another attacking formation, even though it will mean one man less
    in the midfield. The default 4-3-3 in the
    game came with two of the midfielder running to the left and right flank respectively(as
    indicated by the arrow above)

    A formation first used alongside with the "cattenaccio" system. In this formation, an
    additional man called sweeper is put behind the
    two central defender. The sweeper can move freely from left to right to clear the ball away
    from the team's area.

    Overall, this tactic almost looks the same with Sweeper tactics, iwth the exception that there
    is no sweeper and instead a Defensive
    Midfielder in its place. While Two centre midfielder, and both wing-backs at the flank pushing
    No matter how useful each tactic is, overtime, the computer AI(Artificial Intelligence) will
    crack your tactic. When this happened, I
    recommend that you change the tactics. Some common sign that the AI has cracked your tactic, is
    that all the player in your team perform poorly, you have numerous chances, and the computer
    only had a handful, but you stoill lost anyway. The good side though, the computer's AI could
    only crack one tactics at a time, so keep a few tactics and rotate them when they are cracked.

    11.Regenaration Player
    What is Regenerated Player(Regens):
    When a player retire, the database will create a new player of the same position and
    nationalities. In previous version of the game, the way to find out out a player regenerated
    player was to give them a nickname, and you could search them. While this process still work in
    CM 01/02, the player with the nicknames you have will be random, in other words there are no
    way you could find a regens without the aid of a program.
    12. Work Permit
    For EU countries, usually if you want to buy a non-EU player, you will nedd a work permit to
    made that player eligible to play. Player that have EU second nationality do not need any work
    -In EPL, at least you need that player to play in 70% of the national team in the last two
    years. Or in the game, it is more likely that a player with 10+ international caps to be
    granted Work Permit. IF you want to know whether that player could be granted a work permit,
    send your scout to gather more information about the player.
    -In order to keep the work permit, a player must play in at least 75 % of your club official
    domestic games. (Including cup matches, but not friendly). If you fail to do this, that player
    will not be granted work permit anymore, and you'll end up with a player that you can't even
    play.(except during friendly.
    -You could only have 3 non-EU player in your team in particular games for England. However,
    there are no limitations of non-EU player you can have in your whole team.
    NOTE: If anyone knew the requirement of work permit for each leauge, please e-mail me.

    Jean-Marc Bosman was an above average Belgian footballer who sought to join Dunkerque at the

    cutting his wages and demanding a prohibitively high transfer fee.
    Bosman took his case to the European High Court where it was held that existing transfer rules
    were in breach of EU law on the free movement of workers between member states of the EU.
    A perfect example, would be Steve Mcmanaman transfer from Liverpool to Real Madrid
