I highly recommend viewing this document in a fixed width font. For printing I
recommend cutting and pasting the text into wordpad etc. as opposed to printing
from notepad.

*Introduction*

Have you ever wondered why there are so few Centre Halves in the game? Ditto
for Sweepers and Liberos? Or why so few players have the long throw skill? I
did and in a fit of madness I decided to measure the scale of the problem.
I looked through every team in the game and made lists of all the centre
halves, liberos, sweepers and players with the long throw skill that I could
find. Having strained my eyes by staring at the tiny writing on the player
acquirement screen for several hours I decided I might as well type the
lists up and put them in a guide.

The lists below contain, as far as I am aware, _every_ CH, SW, LIB and player
with the long throw skill in the game.

The lists follow this format.

PES name / Real name - Positions - National Team and/or Club - cost/maintenance

If only one name is shown that means the player's PES name and real name are
the same.

The lists are sorted alphabetically using PES surnames (for the most part,
some of the oriental names might be the wrong way round)

Most of the real names are taken from www.efrance.fr/special-stats
Some default names that I couldn't remember were taken from there too.

Team names are the ones used in the game.

*Miscellaneous*

Other unusual players and players of special interest. They have rare
combinations of positions, or strange skills given their position.


Chavilert / Chilavert - GK - Paraguay - 35/10

Goalkeeper with the PK.kick skill plus abnormally good free kick skills.
Takes free kicks for his country.


Compas / Campos - GK/CF - Mexico - 23/5

Goalkeeper who can play as a striker and has the dribble skill. Maybe the
shortest goalkeeper.


Van der Sar - GK/CB - Netherlands - 27/6

Goalkeeper who can play as a centre back.


Scolea/Scirea - LIB - Euro Classic - 27/6

Not only is this guy the only pure Libero, he also has the FD.Kick skill. I'm
pretty certain this is a skill which is only of use to goalkeepers. Bizarre.
