    UPDATE HISTORY
    ============================
    
    Version 0.1
    
    Started the FAQ, didn't do that much, I just made the 'Current Selection'
    section and updated the 'Ajax Amsterdam - Titles' section to 2006.
    
    Version 0.2
    
    Updated the 'Current Selection' and created the team formation with my
    view on how you should play with Ajax.
    
    Version 0.3
    
    Created the 'Players' section but didn't do that much to it yet, just
    a few players. Stekelenburg, Gentenaar and Vermeer.
    
    Version 0.4
    
    Didn't do anything really, just updated a few sections and spell checked
    a little bit through the guide. Only thing that needs to be finished now
    is the 'Players' section, after that I'll put the guide online.
    
    Version 0.5 (online version)
    
    It is now 6 months since my last uodate, I never got around to finishing
    the 'Players' section because I was way too busy. Anyway, I finished the
    final parts of the guide and also updated with a new title. :D

    Introduction
    ============================
    
    Hello and welcome to my second FAQ on Ajax, this time for Pro
    Evolution Soccer 6. Last season was dramatic for Ajax, we only 
    managed to end 4th in the ranking and lost the head coach Danny Blind.
    Champions League didn't go that well either, Ajax did survive the
    group stage but that was because the teams in the stage sucked,
    sorry to say that about the teams but they did. In the 1/8 final 
    Ajax was knocked out by Inter Milan, which is no shame. The first
    leg in Amsterdam ended in a 2-2 draw, in Milan Ajax lost 0-1.
    The season did have some good times though, Ajax won the play-offs
    in their own league which ensured them to play for a place in the 
    Champions League and won the Dutch cup.
    This guide will be similar to the PES 5 guide on Ajax, just updated
    a lot. My strategy with the team has changed too ofcourse, but not
    that much. Ajax has won 2 titles in 2006 which have been added to the
    titles chapter. The Dutch cup and Johan Cruyff Schaal have fallen
    prey to Ajax. Now on with the guide.

    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 106 years.

                            2002, 2006, 2007
    
    Dutch Supercup/Johan  : 1993, 1994, 1995, 2002, 2005, 2006

    UEFA Cup              : 1992

    And a bunch of pre season tournaments.
    That's a total of 62 titels, European and national titels.

    Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Juventus.

    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. I know this is exactly what I've written in my PES 5 
    Ajax team guide, but that's because I believe this is the best
    strategy to win, with Ajax.
    
    
    I'll show you what my team looks like when playing with Ajax.
    
    
    Starting Line-up:
    
    GK  Stekelenburg

    Stekelenburg is still my first keeper, even though in real life I think 
    I'd rather have Vermeer in the goal, in the game Stekelenburg is better.
    One of the best transfers ofcourse is Jaap Stam, a worldclass defender, 
    in my eyes one of the best defenders ever. My defence is pretty clear,
    these players are in my eyes the best in the team for these positions.
    In the midfield I lost Galasek and Pienaar, but that has been well made
    up with players like Gabri and Perez. Sneijder now takes the position of
    Galasek because he has the best pass, and I need to reach my forwards.
    In the off season period in the winter last year, Ajax bought a new CF
    from Heerenveen. Huntelaar was the topscorer at the moment and he was to
    help Ajax to improve the results, which he did, he closed the season with
    33 goals in total, 17 for Heerenveen and 16 for Ajax.
    Babel and Mitea both have good speed and technique, if you like to dribble
    yourself then these 2 players are the best, maybe Rosales would be good
    to use too. I find it easy to use Babel and Mitea to reach Huntelaar or
    dribble toward the penalty area until help arrives in the form of
    Sneijder. Huntelaar is the only player for that position, he has the best
    stats, so the position is his.

    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 7 when
    its released, but I'm not sure if I'll find the time for it. I'll do my best.
    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.
