    Playing the Game
    
    Basic Moves
    
    Attack(With Ball)
    
    "D-Pad" - Controls the direction of movement of the player you control
    "R1" - Speed burst, Sprint(Hold Down)
    "Square" - Shot at goal. The power bar indicates how hard and high the 
               shot will go.
    "Circle" - Plays a long ball forward. Crosses the ball if played from 
               the side of the penalty area. To reduce the high of the 
               cross just tap the button twice for a medium level
               and 3 times for a grounder.
    "X" - The short pass
    "Triangle" - Through pass. This one is extremely useful when trying to 
                 unleash a player for a run towards goal.
    
    Defensive(Without Ball)
    
    "D-Pad" - Controls the direction of movement of the player 
              you control.
    "R1" - Speed burst, Sprint(Hold Down)
    "X" - Make your player/marker press an opponent to win the ball.
    "Circle" - Make your player perform a sliding tackle to win the ball. 
               Make sure you do not tackle a player from behind or it is 
               a definite red card.
    "L1" - Switch control to another player(Useful esp when manual cursor 
           change is selected)
    "Triangle" - Order your goalie to attempt a rush out of his net to 
                 closedown an advancing forward. Useful when the opponent 
                 has broken through your offside trap for a one on one 
                 with the keeper. Be aware that skilled strikers might 
                 try to lob the ball past your goalkeeper.
    
    Defensive Clearence
    
    "Circle" - If the ball is within your own penalty area then your 
               player will kick the ball out towards the midfield in an 
               attempt to clear it. Note that if the ball is a floater 
               the player will hit it first time.
    
    Headers
    
    "X" - Pressing the button will result in the player attempting to 
          head the ball to a teammate.
    "Square" - The player will perform a powerful header towards goal. 
    
    Throw-ins
    
    "D-Pad" - Select the direction of throw in the horizontal axis
    "X" - Perform a short throw towards the nearest player
    "Circle" - Perform a long throw towards a teammate
    
    Cornerkick
    
    "D-Pad" - Horizontal adjustments to deliver the ball nearer or 
              further from the goalmouth.
    "X" - A short("quick") corner delivered to the nearest player. 
    "Circle" - Deliver a high ball into the penalty area.
    "Square" - Fire a shot into the penalty area.
    
    Freekick
    
    "D-Pad" - Horizontal adjustments to aim the direction of the freekick. 
              Watch for the curve value of the player to see how much of 
              an angle you can add towards the side of goalmouth.
    "Square" - Take a shot at goal. Be mindful of the distance you are 
               taking the kick from. A split second press of the "square" 
               is sufficient to score at close range. Even slightly too
               much will result in your kick either clipping the woodwork 
               or sailing over.
    "Circle" - Deliver a long ball.
    "X" - A short pass to the nearest teammate.
    
    Advanced Moves
    
    "L1" + "X" - Performs a 1-2 or return pass between 2 players. It is 
                 rather hard to implement due to interception.
    
    "L1" + "Square" - Lobs the ball past the keeper in an attempt to 
                      score. Useful if the opposing keeper rushes out in 
                      an attempt to smoother the ball away from you. Just 
                      keep an eye on the radar for such opportunities.
    
    Other
    
    "L2/R2" - Set the offensive/defensive bias.

    Formation & Strategy
    
    Using the right strategy is essential if you want to have any 
    meaningful games at level 4 or higher. While it might still be 
    possible to get a respectable result at this level you will need to 
    have an exceptional level of experience, control, vision and luck. It 
    may also be tiring to maintain such concentration. Playing some of 
    the stronger teams without a proper strategy will result in your team 
    getting slaughtered. Don't forget that the opposing team will also be 
    using their own strategies against you.
    
    Let's begin with the defence type. The game comes with 2 type of 
    defence setups. You can alter the shape of the defence by pressing the 
    "Triangle" button in the formation setup screen.
    
    Line/Flat - This defensive shape has the defenders moving in tandem 
                maintaining a formation that is relatively straight across 
                the field.
    
    Sweeper - The sweeper is a defender who plays between and behind the 
              stoppers and fullbacks cleaning up any loose balls that got 
              past. A sweeper must have a high state of awareness and 
              game reading skills. 
    
    Now to take a look at the various formations available. Personally i do 
    not bother to tinker the formations of the teams so that i can play 
    them more realistically although this is your own game and you can do 
    whatever you want. Press the "L1/R1" buttons in the formation setup 
    screen to switch formations.
    
    4-4-2A
    
    This formation normally uses 2 wingbacks, 2 stoppers, 2 defensive 
    midfielders, 2 offensive midfielders and 2 strikers.
    
    Attacks are generated through the wings or through long and short 
    passes. It is slightly harder to control the midfield with this 
    formation but it is a good compromise between attack and 
    defence. A common formation used by many teams.
    
    4-4-2B
    
    2 wingbacks, 2 stoppers, 1 defensive midfielder, 1 central 
    midfielder, 2 offensive midfielders and 2 strikers.
    
    Similar to type A above but more offensive allowing the offensive 
    midfielders more options.
    
    4-4-2C
    
    2 wingbacks, 2 stoppers, 1 defensive midfielder, 2 central 
    midfielders, 1 offensive midfielder and 2 strikers.
    
    Another variation of type B this one starts the ball movement 
    deeper in your half but slightly less powerful in the attack. 
    The single attacking midfielder can actually augment the strikers
    as well as provide for them.
    
    4-4-2D
    
    2 wingbacks, 2 stoppers, 2 defensive midfielders, 1 central 
    midfielder, 1 offensive midfielder and 2 strikers.
    
    This is largely a defensive type formation which guards well 
    against both wing and central attacks but limits the offense of 
    your own team. Try playing to the counterattack.
    
    4-3-3A
    
    2 wingbacks, 2 stoppers, 1 central midfielder, 2 offensive 
    midfielder and 3 strikers.
    
    This highly offensive oriented formation packs the front and rear 
    tightly but has a thin midfield. While controlling the midfield 
    might be difficult you have a strong defense and plenty of 
    "goal-target" when you have the chance to attack.
    
    4-3-3B
    
    2 wingbacks, 2 stoppers, 2 central midfielder, 1 offensive 
    midfielder and 3 strikers.
    
    Similar but with a deeper midfield to support you powerful 
    attack force. Provides you with more midfield presence giving 
    balance to a thin mid section.
    
    3-4-3A
    
    3 defenders, 2 defensive midfielders, 2 offensive midfielder
    and 3 strikers.
    
    This formation gives good protection against central attacks 
    while generating good wing attacks. Though your central attacks 
    might be limited.
    
    3-4-3B
    
    2 stoppers, 1 libero, 1 central midfielder, 2 offensive 
    midfielders and 3 strikers.
    
    This formation is best used when you face teams with poor 
    offensive capablities. The large concentration of attackers will 
    overwhelm any defence but will also leave you very vulnerable
    to counterattacks.
    
    3-4-3C
    
    2 stoppers, 1 libero, 2 central midfielders, 1 offensive 
    midfielder and 3 strikers.
    
    A more conservative approach to guard against the attacks yet 
    having a good chance of scoring when space is created.
    
    3-4-3D
    
    3 defenders, 2 defensive midfielders, 1 central midfielder, 1 
    offensive midfielder and 3 strikers.
    
    The opposite of type B this formation is defensive minded and 
    requires a skilled playmaker to generate offense.
    
    3-5-2A
    
    3 defenders, 2 defensive midfielders, 3 offensive midfielders 
    and 2 strikers. 
    
    By far my most preferred formation this offer a significant 
    advantage in both attack and defence all in one package. A 
    powerful midfield supported by defensive midfielders who can also
    support the attack as much as defend. You could use either a 
    sweeper of flat defence type for this formatiom.
    
    3-5-2B
    
    3 defenders, 1 defensive midfielder, 2 central midfielders, 
    2 offensive midfielders and 2 strikers.
    
    Hmm..this formation seemed to put less emphasis on the central 
    attack relying more on penetration of the wings. A more attack 
    oriented formation than 3-5-2A but weaker in defense.
    
    3-5-2C
    
    3 defenders, 1 defensive midfielder, 3 central midfielders, 
    1 offensive midfielder and 2 strikers.
    
    This formation seem to congest the central midfield area and 
    is quite effective against teams playing 4-4-2 style formations. 
    
    4-5-1A
    
    4 defenders, 2 defensive midfielders, 2 central midfielders, 
    1 offensive midfielder, 1 striker.
    
    This shape plays a solid back line and midfield but looks 
    thin in the finishing department. The striker must either be 
    tall or fast and must be able to hold the ball well so that his 
    teammates can come forward to join the attack. The midfielders 
    are like to get many goals using this formation.
    
    4-5-1B
    
    4 defenders, 1 defensive midfielder, 2 central midfielders, 
    2 offensive midfielders and 1 striker. 
    
    This is the christmas tree style formation with a 3 man attack 
    triangle. I never actually used this formation much so i don't 
    know its pros and cons.
    
    4-5-1C
    
    4 defenders, 2 defensive midfielders, 1 central midfielder, 2 
    offensive midfielders and 1 striker.
    
    This rather naive looking formation provides a strong defence 
    with a powerful sting on the counterattack. If you play a 
    opponent using this formation you must try to provide long balls
    to your speedy strikers to get past this stonewall defence.
    
    3-6-1A
    
    3 defenders, 2 defensive midfielders, 3 central midfielders, 
    1 offensive midfielder and 1 striker.
    
    A formation offering good defence and control of midfield. 
    The attacking midfielder is really a second striker that 
    supports the primary marksman. A bit hard to use but still 
    can provide you with a few goals.
    
    3-6-1B
    
    3 defenders, 1 defensive midfielder, 3 central midfielders, 
    2 offensive midfielders and 1 striker.
    
    This formation is obviously an all out attack formation with 
    the striker also acting as a ball holder for his goal scoring 
    midfielders. A bit vulnerable at the back but good at
    keeping the opponent pinned down at their own area.
    
    That concludes the formation briefs. 
    
    Now i will try discuss the preset strategies that come with the game.
    There are set using the "L2/R2" buttons at the formation setup 
    screen.
    
    Normal - It is normal football strategy with everything taking 
             equal measure.
    
    Centre Attack - Concentrate your attacks on the opponents area right 
                    to the of their penalty area.
    
    Centerback Overlap - Order your defender to join in the attack not 
                         just to take a shot but possibly an effort on 
                         goal. During this event one of your 
                         midfielders will cover his run.
    
    Zone Press - This will order your players pressure an opponent in 
                 their assigned area closing 
                 down space and cutting passing lanes. This is opposed 
                 to man-man marking where the marker will just stick 
                 to his assigned man.
    
    Counterattack - This strategy will make your team quickly take an 
                    offensive posture when they have won the ball 
                    sprinting forward looking for space. If your opponent 
                    goes for one of the more attacking style of play then 
                    this is your ideal strategy.
    
    Offside Trap - Although a high risk tactic in the real world this 
                   will make your defenders push forward when they see 
                   an opponent using a through pass or long ball. It 
                   requires a high state of alertness to make it work. 
                   When your opponent has been caught offside the referee 
                   will blow his whistle and award you the freekick.
