    Introduction
    ============================
    
    Hello and welcome to my third FAQ on Ajax, this time for Pro
    Evolution Soccer 2008. Last season didn't bring Ajax anything, no price
    at all. Ajax managed to reach the quarter finals of the Dutch cup, the
    KNVB Beker, but was knocked out in the quarter finals. Ajax managed to
    place 2nd in the Eredivisie behind PSV. In the play-offs for a ticket to 
    the Champions League Ajax had to take on SC Heerenveen in the first round.
    Ajax won both matches easily and found FC Twente to be their last obstacle
    for a ticket to the Champions League. This however did not go as planned.
    FC Twente beat Ajax 1-0 at home, and kept a clean sheet in the Amsterdam
    Arena, 0-0. So now, for the third time in a row, Ajax is condemned to yet
    another year in the UEFA Cup, which will make it all the harder to keep 
    players like Huntelaar from leaving and skilled players from coming to
    Amsterdam.

    Ajax Amsterdam - Titles
    ============================
    
    On march 18th 1900 Han and his brother Johan Dade started a club
    named Ajax. Here starts the history tour of Ajax, one of the most
    famous footballclubs in the world. In a century the club grew from
    this group of friends to a worldfamous club, known for its beautiful
    and attractive football. I'll sum up the trophies Ajax won over the
    last 108 years.

    TEAM FORMATION
    ============================
    
    Ajax usually plays a 4-3-3 system with the point towards goal, this
    means an AMF (attacking midfielder) that plays just behind the CF
    (Central Forward). A strategy that works for me is to put a player
    with high balance stats in the point, because this player should be
    free to pass at from almost any position and be able to connect with
    the forwards. This strategy still works best for me, I've tried a
    bunch of other strategies, playing with 4-4-2 in all sorts of way,
    but this always comes back.
    
    I'll show you what my team looks like when playing with Ajax.

    Stekelenburg is still the best keeper in the team, without a doubt. Heitinga
    and stam provide a solid defence, I made Stam a CB because he wins a lot of
    aerial duels. Vermaelen en Emanuelson as LB and RB, because they're pretty 
    fast, and Emanuelson has a good pass so he can move forward and reach the 
    midfielders. With Vermaelen I wasn't really sure, I was thinking of putting
    Vertonghen there, but Vermaelen has a better defence and body balance and 
    is stronger in the air. Maduro because he is by far the best player for that
    position, better than Lindenbergh or any of those new kids Donald or Anita.
    Gabri and Davids are also the only choice you have for those positions, you
    could also place Luque there, but I think he has qualities that make him
    useful in a forward position. Rommedahl and Luque as SS, they're both fast
    and have a good pass, Luque also has a great shot. So if you get past your
    direct opponent you can fire a good shot at the goal. I put Leonardo as CF
    because I think he is much better than Huntelaar. After playing with 
    Huntelaar I was desperate for something new on that position, and Leonardo
    proved to be a good solution. He has a lot more technique and its easier
    to keep a hold of the ball and manoeuvre than it is with Huntelaar.

    FINAL WORDS
    ============================
    
    This was it for the team guide for this year, I once again hope that I have 
    inspired you enough to choose Ajax as your team in 1 of your online games or
    in matches against your friends. Even though Ajax isn't a very good team in 
    the game you can still enjoy the team if you learn how to play with them.
    I intend to write a team guide on Ajax again in Pro Evolution Soccer 2009 when
    its released. If you have any questions, comments or suggestions you can mail
    me at my usual address, lsguides@gmail.com. Thanks for looking at my team
    guide, and I hope to see you next year.
