UPDATE HISTORY
============================

Version 0.1:

Created the guide artwork, copyright and introduction section and 
started with the players of the team. So far, Stekelenburg, Vonk,
Lobont, Vermeer, Heitinga and Escude are finished.

version 0.2:

I continued with ''the Players'' section. These players are now
finished as well: Trabelsi, Maduro, Vermaelen, Grygera, de Jong,
Lindenbergh, Galasek, Obodai, Pienaar, Sneijerd, Maxwell, 
Emanuelson and Lindgren.

Version 0.3

Pretty much finished the guide, I finished all the players, 
finished the ''team formation'' section and wrote down my final
words. I also added the current selection of Ajax because the
team in PES 5 is out of date.


============================
INTRODUCTION
============================

Hi and welcome to my team guide on my favorite team, Ajax.
I live in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and am a big fan of Ajax, for
this reason I wanted to create a team guide that may help people out
who have been, or want to, play with this beautiful club.
As you probably already know, Ajax isn't that big of a team in the 
newest Pro Evolution Soccer (hereafter reffered to as PES) but, it is
1 of the biggest teams in the Dutch league, probably second to PSV.
PES 5 however, isn't really up to date as to what players have left
Ajax during the season and what players have joined the team.
But that doesn't matter, I'll just stick with the players Ajax has 
in PES 5 and tell you my strategies. In this guide I'll go through
every player, give you my favorite starters line-up and give you some
strategies that work well for me. But before I do that, I'm gonna
take you back into the history of Ajax and share some of the highlights
of the team with you.


============================
Ajax Amsterdam
============================

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 it's beautiful
and attractive football. I'll sum up the trophies Ajax won over the
last 106 years.

Dutch League Chanmpion: 1918, 1919, 1931, 1932, 1934, 1937, 1939,

============================
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.

Maduro has excellent balance but, his passing isn't 
really good enough. Sneijder has great passing skills but, his balance
is just too low. You need to find a well balanced player in the point
that has a good enough pass and balance to stay on the ball.
A well balanced player like that is Galasek, he has good balance and 
good passing and his other stats make him a good player for that
position.

But having a balanced player doesn't only apply to midfielders, I think
that every player should be well balanced out according to their position.
Having a forward who is great at attacking and shooting doesn't mean that
he's a good forward, not since PES 3.

I'll show you what my team looks like when playing with Ajax.

As you can see I've got Galasek right behind Rosenberg, for me having the
connection between the AMF and CF has been incredibly helpful.
I put Travelsi a little bit more to the front because he's a good attacking
defender, I regularly cross half the putch with Trabelsi to find either
Galasek or Rosales. If I lose the ball I still have Grygera to fill up the
gab. I also have Pienaar set as deffensive so that Grygera can keep his
position. It works well for me, and yes, I do play against 6 star difficulty.


============================
CURRENT SELECTION
============================

The selection of Ajax players in PES 5 is already out of date, a lot has
changed this year. Some players left the club, others joined and a few
players from Ajax's own youth teams break through and make their first
appearance in the first team. I'll give you an update of the new selection.
There are some other players but they haven't played for the first team yet
so I won't include them.

Update as of march 11th 2006

Joel Joel for correcting me on the current selection. I had Maxwell
and Escude still in it. Escude moves to Sevialla in Spain and Maxwell
has moved to Italy where he will start after his injury.

FINAL WORDS
============================

This was it for my team guide on Ajax, I hope this guide inspires you
to choose Ajax as your team when playing the Dutch league, or that it
helps in winning your games. I have a request for anybody who reads this.
Can someone make me a good field so that it's easier for people to
understand my positioning of the players and strategies? 
If you can just send me a mail and we'll talk from there on, if I can
use you work I'll be sure to mention your name in the update.
For questions or suggestions you can mail me at: lsguides@gmail.com.
See ya!
