     Okay, to make things easier, press [Ctrl + F] and type the numerical reference
     alongside the topic heading in the table below. For example, if you want to
     read about the best players in Master League Mode, just type "07.d" and press
     [Enter] until you find what find what you want. You get the idea :-)

     Welcome to my guide for the connoisseur's choice when it comes to football
     games, Winning Eleven 6! I know that some people prefer to call it
     "Soccer", but - being British - I find this hard to swallow. I do not mean
     to cause any offence or ambiguity, but I shall persist in calling the World's
     most popular sport by its most widely used name.
     Also, I have referred to all players and clubs by their real-life names, e.g.
     Ronaldo instead of "Radolno", or Liverpool instead of the laughable "Europort"
     moniker bestowed upon it by the cheapskates at KCET (only joking, guys I love
     you, please continue to release games of such high quality...)
     This is my first guide, but I hope that this guide is as detailed and as
     thorough as any subsequent guides I produce. I hope you find this guide both
     useful and easy to use.
     Take care and enjoy my work,
     Richard Arnatt (guitarfreak86[at]hotmail[dot]com)

     01.d - Contact Me
     Just so that there is absolutely no confusion about where to send your
     comments and suggestions, this is my email address:
     If you have a question, mail it to me at this address, but before you do this,
     • Check you have an up-to-date version of this guide.
     • Check that your question is not answered anywhere in this guide. There is
       nothing more annoying than being sent a question by a lazy gamer who hasn't
       read the guide.
     When you send me any corrections for this guide, please can you include the
     following information in the subject field:
     • The name of this guide.
     • The version of the guide you are referring to.
     • A brief description of the correction suggestion.
     Also if it is an error you wish to amend, please can you include the section
     reference of where you found it.
     For example if there is a spelling mistake in the "Advanced Controls" section,
     and you have version 1.6 of this guide you would type:
     "WE6 Guide v1.6 spelling mistake in 02.d"
     ...in the subject field. If everyone sticks to this syntax then it will mean I
     can spend less time sifting through emails and more time perfecting the guide.
     I will try to reply to each email personally, but this may not always be
     possible depending on the popularity of this guide.
     One last thing, any feedback is much appreciated, but can you please email me
     in standard English? If I receive an email that is incoherent or ambiguous
     then it will be deleted without regard to its content. Also, flaming is
     neither big nor clever, and it will only result in any further emails being
     blocked by my mail server. Rant over. Enjoy the rest of the guide ;-)

     If you're still cutting your teeth on the Winning Eleven series then my advice
     is this: Read this section now! If however you are a more advanced player then
     just skim through this. There's a good chance you might find something you
     never knew about, particularly from Advanced Controls (02.d) onwards.
     02.a - PS2 Controller Notation
     To ease the gargantuan task of writing this guide, and to make reading whilst
     playing more easy, I have used the following symbols to represent the
     different controller buttons:
       Directions (in square brackets):
       [U] - D-Pad Up.
       [R] - D-Pad Right.
       [D] - D-Pad Down.
       [L] - D-Pad Left.
         NB: Also refers to direction of left analog stick.
       Action Buttons (in curved brackets):
       (O) - Circle Button.
       (^) - Triangle Button.
       () - Square Button.
       (X) - 'X' Button.
       (L1/L2/R1/R2) - Shoulder buttons.
       (L3/R3) - Performed by depressing either the left or right analog stick
                     until it clicks.
       Other Commands:
        , - Press each button in sequence, one after the other.
        + - Press both linked buttons simultaneously.
        ~ - Press the first button, followed rapidly by the second.
       Hold - Press and hold the specified button.
       Tap - Quickly press and release the button specified.
        x# - Press the specified button # times.
     Right, now that's out of the way, let's get on with the game controls
     02.b - Basic Controls
     Listed here a the controls that you NEED to know before you let the game disc
     anywhere near your PS2. Seriously, if you don't know this stuff then you
     really won't stand a chance when you play against any decent opposition.
     Player movement is controlled with the d-pad or the left-analog stick. I would
     personally recommend using the d-pad as it offers a more immediate response.
     Also you are less likely to run in the wrong direction as there are only 8
     directions available on the d-pad and there are around 64 when using the
     analog sticks. Player movement is dealt with the same if you have the ball or
     not. The only other thing to remember is that if you have the ball at your
     feet, turning takes slightly longer than when you are not in possession.
     Switching Players (L1)
     If you have selected Semi-Automatic mode then this is done for you, otherwise
     pressing the (L1) button when not in possession puts you in control of the
     defensive player closest to the ball. This is among the most important skills
     you have to learn.
     Dribbling (R1), (R2)
     Hold (R1) + the desired direction to make your player sprint in that
     direction. This is very effective when defending as the defensive player can
     make up lost ground (if your defender is fast, of course) on the attacker who
     is considerably slower with the ball to deal with as well as normal running.
     For this reason, the (R1) sprint should only be employed when there is a
     large amount of space to run into.
     For a more controlled dash hold the (R2) button + the direction you want the
     player to run in. This makes the player dribble at a slightly slower speed
     than the (R1) dash. Although there is a noticeable loss in speed, the
     increase in manoeuvrability means that it is much easier to outfox the
     opposition's defenders.
     Short Pass (X)
     This is executed by pressing the direction you wish to pass in and the (X)
     button simultaneously. Normally, the pass aims automatically towards the
     nearest player from your team in the specified direction. Obviously this does
     not work if you aim in a direction where there is no one to pass towards. When
     using the analog stick, the AI is less forgiving than when aiming digitally.
     Note that the further you are from the player receiving the ball, the pass is
     less likely to be successful.
     Manual Short Pass
     By pushing the right analog stick in the direction you wish to pass in, you
     have a method of playing the pass with absolute control over both the
     direction and velocity of the pass. The more sharply you tilt the stick, the
     quicker the pass will travel. The problem with this type of pass is that there
     is no auto-aiming facility provided by the CPU. As a result, more often than
     not, the pass will not travel in the desired direction. This can be extremely
     annoying if it goes wrong during a crucial stage in the match. I would suggest
     sticking with the regular pass.
     When in your own half, pressing the () button hoofs the ball up the field and
     away from danger. A clearance from within your own box can also be performed
     with the (O) button. This one's a life saver, LEARN THIS WELL!
     Long Passes (O)
     There are six different control methods for long passes which offer various
     levels of AI assistance for pass aiming. These can be altered in the "Button
     Config." section of the Options screen and the Pause menu. I personally prefer
     set-up 1, but I guess it is just personal taste. However, it is set-up 1 I
     will describe here:
     All long passes are controlled with the (O) button. If your player is in
     advance of the 18-yard line then an automatic cross is performed. If the
     player is within 18 yards of his own goal-line, the player will clear the ball
     upfield to prevent the opposition from continuing their attack.
     A gauge is used to control the height and length of the pass. I can't show you
     how to do this effectively, it just takes practise on your part. However, I
     would suggest that the gauge should not be filled more than half-way, except
     to perform a clearance. This is because after the gauge is more than half full
     it is hard to determine where the ball is going to go. Just take my word for
     it! :-)
     The following commands assume you are using long-pass method 1:
     (L1) + (O) - "The Route #1 Hoof"
            Pressing this from any position results in a high ball played into the
            opponent's 18-yard box. This can be effective against weaker opposition
            but completely useless against any team worth their salt. Only employ
            this move if you are desperate, ideally after defending a corner.
            Ideal for quick, on-the-break plays, but is reliant more upon luck than
     (O) - Far Post Cross
            When you are past the opposition 18-yard line (edge of the box), press
            (O) to execute a cross to the attacker closest to the far post. Unlike
            in Winning Eleven 5, it's relatively easy to score from crosses,
            especially against defence-lite teams like Fiorentina.
     (O) x2 - Near Post Cross
            As above, but to the forward closest to the near post. Lightning-quick
            and very potent.
     (O) x3 - Low Cross
            Plays a very fast ball across the face of the goal. Ideal if you have
            short forwards who aren't suited to headers (Maradona, Nuno Gomes).
     Shooting ()
     All shots are performed with the () button. Again, this is gauge-operated,
     with the power and height of the shot determined by the length the () button
     is held for. Holding the directional button towards the goal will increase the
     likelihood that the shot will be on target. Depending on which player makes
     the shot, the shot may be made more or less likely also. For example, a shot
     from Batistuta will be more likely to create a goal-scoring opportunity than a
     similar effort by Sol Campbell, obviously!
     Standing Tackle (X)
     This tackle is the one you should be using 90% of the time. It's very
     effective and your chances of being penalised for a foul are much smaller than
     when performing a sliding tackle. The (X) button is used to perform this, but
     the (X) button is cleverly shared between two moves. Don't worry if this
     sounds complicated, it couldn't be easier! Basically, by holding the (X)
     button when in defence, your player will press towards the attacker and try to
     force an error. When you have approached the attacking player, any further
     taps of the (X) button results in your player putting a foot in to try and win
     possession forcibly. There, not so hard is it :P
     Sliding Tackle
     Performed with the (O)  button and requires extremely good skill and timing.
     This is a much more aggressive tackle, which if used wrongly can result in
     serious repercussions such as a booking or even a sending off. ONLY use this
     if you are confident of it succeeding, e.g. you have a clear chance of making
     contact with the ball. Whatever you do, do NOT attempt a sliding tackle if
     you are behind the player in possession. 9 times out of 10, this will result
     in at least a booking, if not a dismissal. Just BE CAREFUL!!!
     02.c - Intermediate Controls
     This section contains controls and manoeuvres that require a little more skill
     to perform than those listed in the previous section. These can be extremely
     effective, although they should be used sparingly unlike the "skill moves" of
     the FIFA series. Basically you should only use them in specific situations.
     For this reason, along with each method I will give an example of where it can
     be used most effectively.
     Through Pass
     Performed with the (^) button, this is an extremely useful move as it makes
     fools of even the stronger defensive line-ups. It is similar to a regular pass
     in that it is aimed using the left analog stick, but there is no fixed ball
     receiver. The benefit of this is that you can pass the ball ahead of your
     intended receiver, allowing him to run on towards the ball and make up ground.
     This ball should not be played straight, but diagonally across the defensive
     line. 75% of the time, the defenders will flounder and your forward should be
     able to knock one in from close range; especially satisfying in multi-player.
     BEST USE: Bisecting the defence for an easy chance on goal.
     Keeper Charge
     Holding the (^) button when not in possession makes your 'keeper charge
     headlong towards the ball carrying. This is a kind of double-edged sword as
     it can save your a**, but can also cost you the match. It's effectiveness has
     been somewhat toned-down from the first PES, and now it's possible to be
     booked or even sent off for being over zealous with your advances. Never, EVER
     use this against an expert player; they _will_ chip you and you _will_ look
     stupid in the replays. Just some friendly advice ;-)
     BEST USE: If you're absolutely desperate and your defence has abandoned you.
               Or you're feeling lucky/stupid/like you wanna lose.
     Defensive Assist
     Holding the () button will cause the nearest CPU-controlled will press the
     player in possession. This can be useful if you really need to close down the
     attacker. Beware the gap the player leaves behind, this allows an easy through
     pass on goal.
     BEST USE: With the (X) button, "sandwiching" the attacker and quickly closing
               him down and preventing an attack.
     Knock forward
     Whilst holding (R1) Tap and then hold down the direction you wish to run in.
     This causes the player to knock the ball a few yards ahead of him. If your
     player is quick, he'll gain a few extra paces in the ensuing chase for the
     BEST USE: Getting your speedy winger past the last line of defence to make
               that inch-perfect cross.
     By repeatedly tapping (L1) or (R2) whilst dribbling, your player will perform
     either a single or double step-over feint. The only real way to make this
     move effective is to change direction immediately after performing the feint.
     About half the time you will probably be tackled, the rest of the time you
     will be brought down for a free-kick or penalty. VERY rarely, you can use it
     to get round an opponent, but in nearly all situations it might occur, you
     could probably have just dribbled round them ;-)
     BEST USE: Frustrating their central defender into conceding a penalty.
     The "One-Two" Pass
     Quite complicated and hard to master, this can bamboozle even the most
     experienced defenders. To perform it, hold (L1) and press (X). Then, when the
     other player receives the ball, tap (^) to return the ball. Or, you can tap
     the (O) button to return a lofted ball.
     BEST USE: Infiltrating the last line of defence.
     The Chip
     Pressing (L1) + () when the keeper is off his line will result in a lofted
     effort which will float into the goal leaving the keeper stranded in the
     middle of nowhere. This takes good timing, and you'll need loads of practice,
     but believe me it's more than worth it to see your mates blush.
     BEST USE: When the keeper charges you at the edge of the box
     The Chip II
     By holding the (R1) button when the shot gauge is still visible, the player
     will perform a shallower effort on goal. This method is far more effective than
     the other chip shot as it is more likely to be on target.
     BEST USE: When the keeper is off his line. Needs immaculate timing.
     First-Time Shot
     Press () immediately after you execute a pass to an attacking player. If
     successful, your player should hit a powerful shot with his first touch at the
     ball. This is good if you a constantly getting closed down by the defence.
     BEST USE: When all else fails.
     02.d - Feints, Dummies and Tricks
     This section lists the various little tricks and feints that are oh so
     satisfying against your mates in multi-play.
     Feint Shot ("Dummy") - ()~(X)
     Press (), and whilst the shot gauge is still filling up, press (X) to cause
     your player to fool the defender that you are about to take a shot before
     craftily scooping the ball of to one side and leaving the defender stranded.
     This looks really cool and is an immensely satisfying way to make your mates
     look really stupid. What's more, it's very effective, even against stronger
     opposition. 'Ave it!! :-)
     BEST USE: Anywhere in the opponents half, it never gets old!
     Feint Shot ("Cancel") - ()~(^)
     As above, but press (^) instead of (X) to cause the player to abandon his shot
     and continue dribbling in the same direction. Not so useful, but it's in the
     game, so it's in the guide (to parody a famous EA slogan).
     BEST USE: When you accidentally press () when you didn't intend to, you ham-
               fisted idiot!! :-P
     NOTE: You can also feint long passes with much the same method, although the
           (O)-(X) control is slightly more cumbersome. Don't bother doing it, but
           if I don't write it down someone will remind me.
     "Leave it!!"
     Tapping (R1) just as the ball reaches the player causes him to step over the
     ball and let it run on for another player. Simple enough, but it's because
     beginners (who hold (R1) with impunity) fall foul of it often that makes it
     an "Advanced Control". Can work spectacularly, or fail miserably.
     Flat-Out Dribble
     When sprinting with (R1), press and hold (R2) and change your course by 45
     degrees. This makes the player thump the ball several paces ahead a give chase.
     Works well if you have a speedy winger, but usually results in a turnover of
     B. F. Fakes
     To perform this, your player needs the "B.F.Fake" star ability. These feints
     are very difficult to do and, truth be told, they're not very effective. But
     they're in the game, so it's in the guide.
     - #1 -
     Whilst sprinting with the (R1) button, press an adjacent direction to the
     direction you are running (e.g. if you are running to the right, press either
     down-right or down-left) as the player's foot touches the ball and then revert
     to the original direction. This is a b***h to master, but it is possible, I
     - #2 -
     As above but with the (R2) dash.
     - #3 -
     Again, but without any shoulder button depressed. This is close to impossible!
     I still cannot do this every time.
     02.e - Free-kicks
     Alas, one minor niggle from the original PES is that the Free-kicks are still
     really, really hard to pull off. This section is about the Shooting free-kicks
     because the various passed free-kicks are pretty self-explanatory.
     So, here goes, a guide to the most difficult thing you have to do, just about.
     Remember: Practise Often
     By frequently practising your free-kicks, you will eventually develop a knack
     for them and your chances of scoring at a crucial stage in the game will
     improve. Practise makes perfect, so "they" say.
     [D] + () - Short range free-kick. Use this when you are within 22M from the
     goal. Aim between the heads of the defenders and fill the gauge _just_ under
     half-full. Hold left or right to add swerve to the ball, but usually this
     isn't necessary. This should be easy enough to learn.
     () - Mid-range free-kick. When you're less than 30M out then this shot is
     effective. Aim between the heads of the far side of the wall. Fill the gauge
     no more than 2/3 full and hold the D-pad towards the goal. Eventually you'll
     get a 'feel' for this. I score about a fifth of all free-kicks from this
     [U] + () - Long range free-kick (30M or more away). Holding [U] causes the
     player to hoof the ball low and hard. Aim slightly wide of the goal, fill the
     gauge between 1/3 and 3/4 full and apply swerve -guess what!- towards the goal
     This seems impossible at first, but you'll get the hang of it soon enough!
     Dipping the shot - by holding (X) after the ball has been struck, the ball
     will dip sharply. This can be useful if you overhit it, but the significant
     loss in speed decreases the likelihood of scoring. Pressing (X) before the
     ball is struck will almost always result in the ball smacking into the wall.
     Low Trajectory Shots - performed very similarly to the "Chip Shot 2", holding
     (R1) whilst the shot gauge is still visible. This, when combined with [U],
     results in an extremely powerful, low trajectory shot on goal. This is a bit
     hit and miss, but when used effectively it can produce stunning results.
     BTW, it has come to my attention that pressing (^) after taking a free kick
     has a similar, albeit less drastic dipping effect. Use this on long-range
     efforts if you know you have overhit the shot slightly.
     Tip For Practice Mode
     Use the "Vertical Intermediate" camera view obtain a better perspective of
     your free kicks. For example, from a side-on view the ball does not seem to
     curve at all. However, in vertical mode it is obvious that some players can
     bend the ball up to 40degrees from long range. It's all about the detail after
     Defending Free-Kicks
     To a certain extent, defending a free-kick is controlled by the game's AI.
     However, there are a little tricks that remain from the ISS series that aren't
     mentioned in the manual. I guess this is a kind of "Easter Egg" to reward
     veteran players of the series. Either that or they couldn't be bothered to
     take it out of the code. Anyway, here's how to perform them:
     Defensive Rush - Holding the (R1) button whilst the free-kick is being taken
     by the opposition will cause your defensive wall to charge towards the kick
     taker. This is sometimes effective to block low trajectory free kicks, but I
     only ever use it to gloat :-).
     "Big Jump" - Holding () whilst the free kick is being taken results in the
     entire defensive wall leaping to try and block any attempt at goal. I know
     that the wall tends to jump anyway, but there is a noticeable difference in
     the height and timing of the jump. It seems to block shots more frequently,
     that's for sure.
     Rule for life - NEVER, EVER hold (^) when defending a free kick, unless you
                     _want_ to be laughed at :-)
     Still finding it too hard?
     There is a cheater's method to score free kicks from close range. It is in the
     "Secrets" section under 09.d, but be warned! This method is so effective you
     might as well not bother learning how to take them properly. I would suggest
     only reading this if you are desperate. Remember, _CHEATING IS WRONG!_
     02.f - Penalties
     Simple. Just press () and hold the desired direction to shoot. If you're the
     goalie, just hold the direction you want to dive in and hope.
     Here is a crudely drawn goal with the available directions you can shoot in,
     marked with a '*':
       |                                                  |
       |  *                     *                      *  |
       |                                                  |
       |                                                  |
       |                                                  |
       |                                                  |
       |                        * (neutral)               |
       |                                                  |
       |                                                  |
       |  *                                            *  |
     That's all there is to it!
     02.g - Corners
     This is a tricky one, as everyone will have their own preferred style that
     they follow when taking corners. Some like to pass it out for a cross, but I
     prefer a direct approach. This is how I take corners, feel free to send in
     your suggestions to my email, (read 01.d).
     1. Turn slightly towards the goal-line.
     2. Fill the gauge about 3/4 full and hold the d-pad away from the goal-line
        for an outward-swinging cross.
     3. The ball should sail directly to the far-post forward for and easy header.
     4. Celebrate your goal.
     There ya go. It's pretty easy once you know how. 70% of my corners result in
     goals using this method. I'm not joking, it really is that effective, even on
     5-star difficulty.
     Don't try in-swinging corners, cause the keeper eats those for breakfast in
     this game!
     If you're playing your default Master League team or are playing strikers with
     poor 'Jump' and 'Header' stats, then you have no choice but to play a ground
     pass and try and to make a shot from the edge of the box.

     This section contains brief descriptions of what each game mode is and what
     can be done within it.
     03.a - Match Mode
     Exhibition Match/P.K. Match
     Select any team and play a single match. For P.K matches, set the sequence in
     which the players take the shots. For National Team matches, you can select
     National sides for play, and in Club Team mode, you can play as one of the
     club sides on offer. For Elite matches, you can choose to pit the European or
     World Elite teams against each other. Master League data can be uploaded.
     03.b - League Mode
     Select 16 Nations to take part in a tournament against the CPU, or other human
     opponents for either 30 games (a season), or 15 games (a half-season). Extra
     Time and Penalty Shootouts do not take place. Winning this league results in
     the World Elite being unlocked for International matches.
     03.c - Cup Mode
     International Cup
     Basically the same format as the World Cup. One group stage with a knockout
     tournament proceeding it.
     European Cup
     A 16 team tournament that only allows European Teams to enter.
     Africa Cup
     As above, but only African nations may enter.
     Americas Cup
     Another international tournament, with North & South American teams eligible.
     Konami-UMBRO Cup
     A Customisable tournament that allows you to create your own tournament.
     03.d - Master League Mode (NB: for a more in-depth guide see chapter 7.)
     This mode allows you to manage one of 40 club teams, acquiring players and
     training your squad as you go. Your team starts off in division three (D3),
     the objective being to win games/point and promote yourself into division one.
     Here you must continue battling (whilst avoiding relegation) until you are
     strong enough to come 1st in D1.

    ================================================================== #####
     Short of coming round your house and showing you how to play, this is where
     you learn all the methods you will need to beat any opponent with (almost) any
     team. It won't happen overnight - it's taken me months! - but practise often
     and it will come. I have written each section so that each one corresponds to
     the level of skill required to win a game. Obviously, if you're an old hand at
     Pro Evo, then you might do cheeky things like rounding the 'keeper or shooting
     from 40 yards, but if this is the case then you probably don't need any help
     in this department.
     04.a - 1-Star Difficulty
     Well, we all have to start somewhere. At this level, running with the ball
     trumps all other types of play due to the defenders' spontaneous bouts of
     narcolepsy. If you use a player with high dribbling stats (Owen, Babangida,
     Rivaldo) then this obviously helps. What you basically want to do is run with
     the ball until you are just inside the penalty area, tap () and hold the
     d-pad/left analog stick in the direction of the goal.
     The opponent will very rarely intercept short passes, so full advantage should
     be taken of this opportunity. Make short passes from goal kicks or free kicks
     until your star-dribbler has the ball. All that needs to be done now is to
     nestle the ball neatly into the back of the net :-).
     In defence, just press the player with the ball and possession should be
     turned over to your team with ease. Avoid using slide tackles as the chances
     are it will land you in the ref's book.
     As long as you know the basic controls for the game, you really shouldn't have
     any trouble comfortably winning games at 1-Star Difficulty. I can win a ten
     minute game scoring 40+ goals, so the lack of a challenge means I rarely play
     games at this level. You should be too good for 1-Star within a couple of
     weeks of playing.
     04.b - 2-Star Difficulty
     This mode is slightly trickier. Running with the ball is still encouraged, but
     now the defence are more vigilant in the box. Make sure the ball is always in
     motion by either passing or dribbling. Try to avoid confrontations with the
     opposition unneccesarily by passing early and running diagonally. Running in a
     straight line between the central defenders is a no-no.
     Sliding tackles need to become a part of your repertoire at this stage. You
     need to be able to effectively win the ball without giving away free kicks or
     penalties. Make good use of any corners or free kicks and don't be afraid of
     taking a direct shot if it's at close range. If you can, use one-twos to split
     the defence open for an easy chance on goal.
     Take advantage of the A.I. players' rigidity. Defensive players will converge
     around the ball carrier, leaving an awful lot of space for your speedy center-
     forward to dart in unmarked.
     Use your full-backs to support your wingers in attack. Get your winger to lure
     the opposite full-back out from their position, then unleash a through pass
     forward for your own full-back to run onto and make a cross.
     Depending on your knowledge of football as a sport, it may take between a
     fortnight to a few months to perfect.
     04.c - 3-Star Difficulty
     Right, this is where the difficulty curve takes a sharp incline. You can't
     simply rely on running around the opposition (a la FIFA). Instead, a certain
     degree of tactical nous is required to really succeed at this setting.
     Firstly, you need to find out what your team's strngths are and play your
     matches accordingly. For example, if you play as Nigeria, you need to take
     advantage of their high speed and attacking stats by attacking constantly in a
     barrage of shots and high-speed dribbling to frustrate their defence. If
     France is your choice then play like them and dominate the midfield and
     control the possession.
     Remember, if they don't have the ball, they cannot score. Don't be afraid to
     play "negative football" and concentrate on shutting down all their attacks. Of
     course if the opposition's defence is weak, then this method is not such a good
     idea. If, however, you are 3-2 up with 2mins on the clock, do not bother trying
     to get a fourth as the resulting counterattack could bury your lead.
     Pass intelligently. Do not simply hoof the ball upfield and hope for the best.
     Look for unmarked players in open space and give them the ball. Take every
     opportunity to score and do not get cocky (rounding the keeper, dribbling in
     your own box, trying to score with your goalie).
     Practise set-plays often to take full advantage of the opportunity to score
     without any defensive pressure. I am able to score from 80% of corners even at
     this level.
     Switch between the flanks to confuse the opposition. This takes a bit of practise
     but it is a very impressive technique. Trevor Brooking gets particularly excited
     about this. To switch, hold the d-pad towards the opposite flank and press the
     long pass button (usually (O)) and fill the gauge until it is roughly 2/3 full.
     Do all these things and before long you should be able to start taking on the
     big boys.
     04.d - 4-Star Difficulty
     NOTE: This is what separates the men from the boys. From here on the game
           starts to get seriously hard! Make sure you are a very competent player
           before taking this on. Simply being "good at games" is not enough, you
           need to think like a footballer and play at a very good level. It took
           me months to get to a high enough level to play proficiently at 4 and 5
           Star difficulty.
     Constantly try to find methods of creating goalscoring chances. Every pass
     should be forward and any confrontation with the opponent should be avoided
     by passing early. Take advantage of any "star" players you have in your team.
     Master the first-time pass and shot to catch your opponent on the break.
     You have to make every goalscoring chance count. Do not hesitate or make too
     many touches with one player as you increase the risk of losing possession.
     Use your own judgment to determine whether a shot is practisable and work upon
     improving your reaction times to allow you to react quickly to a defensive
     press. Once a player within arms length of you then you will almost certainly
     lose the ball unless you pass immediately.
     Use feints effectively to acquire free kicks near the edge of the box. You
     should be able to score most free kicks within 30m of goal. Do not waste a
     single set piece; scoring from corners is a particularly effective way to win
     This is a relatively short section, but there's a lot to learn here. Learn it
     and you will be well on your way to winning regularly at this level.
     04.e - 5-Star Difficulty
     Hmm, it doesn't get much harder than this. You've basically got to incorporate
     everything mentioned before, but you also need a bit of something I cannot
     teach: LUCK!
     That's right, luck. There are some game where you will do everything right,
     and still you will fall foul of the other team getting a lucky deflection or a
     dubious penalty decision, and there is nothing you can do to avoid it! It can
     be frustrating, but it creates a very realistic and tense atmosphere in each
     and every game.
     Your best friend in 5-Star is the scanner. Using this, you can easily see
     where there is space for your players to run into. It never lies! This helps
     because you can view areas of the pitch otherwise invisible on-screen.
     As a general rule, you should not pass the ball anywhere that you cannot see
     on screen. So, unless you are phenomenally talented, those 40-yard ground
     passes are not going to get through. Just keep it simple, and concentrate on
     building up a solid attack line.
     You will very rarely score more than three goals in a game, so once you have
     reached this amount you should concentrate on defending your own goal, as
     there is nothing more annoying than throwing away a solid lead through lapse
     The opposition defence are extremely efficient at shutting you down, and will
     do so within a second or two of receiving the ball. Be swift in your actions,
     and try to hold the majority of ball possession.
     Wow, there isn't much else I can say to help you now. If you're good enough for
     this level, then you already know it all. Good luck in your matches. (you'll
     almost certainly need it)
     04.f - Scoring Strategies
     In every football game I have ever played, there are always certain methods
     that practically guarantee a goal. Winning Eleven 5 and it predecessorshad
     many, many of these, but this year's effort has managed to iron out many of
     However, as the Zen Buddhist's say, "only God is perfect", and there are still
     a few defensive lapses that the CPU commits almost every time. What you need
     to know is how to exploit them.
     So far I have discovered five surefire ways to score, two of which come from
     set-pieces. So, in order of effectiveness, here they are:
     • What is it?
       Also mentioned in greater detail in 09.d, this cheeky method is nearly 100%
       effective. Even Beckham himself can't score this often!
     • How do I do it?
       See 09.d
     • Ease of use - 10/10
     • Effectiveness - 9.5/10
     • What is it?
       Another simple method that can be extremely useful when starting out in
       Master League, where your players are too slow to perform darting runs.
       Possibly the most satisfying way to score against human opponents.
     • How do I do it?
       This works best if one of your CFs plays slightly deeper than the other,
       creating a natural "link-up" style of play. For some reason, the CPU is
       nowhere near as good at judging diagonal passes as it is at straight ones.
       Exploit this frequently by passing diagonally between the central defenders.
       The defenders cannot deal with this easily, increasing your likelihood of
       scoring dramatically. Be careful about getting caught offside though!
     • Ease of use - 7/10
     • Effectiveness - 8/10
     • What is it?
       A low-trajectory corner that is too quick for the CPU goalie to deal with.
       Success rate from scoring with headers is greatly improved.
     • How do I do it?
       Don't adjust the direction of your corner, just hold [U] and fill the gauge
       to about 2/3 full. The resulting ball should provide your attackers with a
       simple header on goal.
     • Ease of use - 9/10
     • Effectiveness - 7.5/10
     • What is it?
       A good way to frustrate the defence and ensure a clear shot on goal. Good if
       your team has a couple of big shooters.
     • How do I do it?
       Once you are approaching the opponent's 18-yard box, use (L2) + (R1) to set
       your teams attitude to all-out attack (red). Keep passing the ball between
       players on the edge of the box. Patience is the key, so keep waiting for a gap
       to appear in the defense. When there's a clear shot available, take it.
     • Ease of use - 6/10
     • Effectiveness - 8/10
     THE "ONE-TWO"
     • What is it?
       A movement that involves two players making a quick exchange of passes to get
       the better of a defender.
     • How do I do it?
       Get to the edge of the box and pass using (L1)+(X), followed by a sharp tap of
       triangle. The return pass will go behind the defender, allowing your player to
       run onto it and score.
     • Ease of use - 6/10
     • Effectiveness - 6/10
     • What is it?
       A very, very quick, low-trajectory pass that is performed by tapping (O) three
       times quickly. It's very good at getting behind the defensive line leaving your
       attacker with a tidy one-on-one with the keeper.
     • How do I do it?
       If you have two pacy attackers with good reactions, e.g. Argentina, give the
       ball to one of them and have him run out wide. Once you are nearing the corner
       of the field, cut inside the SB who is chasing you and unleash a low cross into
       the box. You should be able to half fill the shot gauge pre-emptively and allow
       your other forward to strike with his first touch. Speed is the key to this
       move's effectiveness, so the more you practice this, the more often you will
       score. Really, really useful when performed skilfully.
     • Ease of use - 5/10
     • Effectiveness - 8/10
     • What is it?
       This one has served me well during the years. It's a simple enough manoeuver
       that manages to completely fool the CPU defenders practically every time.
     • How do I do it?
       Give the ball to one of your central midfielders and have him dribble down
       either wing. Don't hold (R1), normal pace should be enough. Eventually, the
       CPU side back will become frustrated and will stray out of his position,
       leaving a big gap for your winger to run into.
       Knock a through-pass forward for your SMF or WG and have him center the ball
       The defence doesn't have enough time to react to this, leaving you with an
       uncontested header on goal.
       This takes a lot of practice to master. Its all about luring out the defender,
       without allowing him to tackle you.
     • Ease of use - 4/10
     • Effectiveness - 6/10

     Okay, so now you know how to play to a decent standard. Now let's look at the
     tactical side of things. Here, I will explain all the non-gameplaying aspects
     of the game, which can have a big impact on the final result.
     Right, deep breaths, here we go...
     05.a - Pre-Match Settings
     Environment Settings
     • Day/Night        - Sets what time of day the game will be played. Has little
                          or no effect on the outcome of the game.
     • Season/Weather   - Choose any combination of Summer, Winter, Fin or Rainy.
                          during rainy conditions, ground passes are considerably
                          slower than on a fine day. Also, during the Winter,
                          players with a low Mentality stat are likely to under-
     • Match Time       - Obvious enough. How long the match will last. Can choose
                          from 5, 10, 15, 20, 25 or 30 minutes of matchplay. Oddly
                          a full 90 minute match cannot be played!
     Gameplay Options
     • Difficulty       - Sets how well A.I. players play. The more stars selected
                          the more difficult the match will be to win. See Chapter
                          5 for more details on each difficulty level.
     • Injuries         - Toggles whether players can be injured.
     • Condition        - Set the playing condition and match fitness of both
                          teams. Red Arrows means that all the team's players are
                          on top form, whereas White Arrows mean that all players
                          in the selected team are playing dreadfully (on a "cold
                          streak"). Choosing "?" means that the form of each player
                          will be randomised, although the player's Mentality stat
                          has a positive effect/
     • No. of Subs.     - How many players can be substituted during the course of a
     Extra Match Settings
     • E.X.             - In the event of a tie, an extra period equal to 30 minutes
                          of game time.
     • G. Goal          - "Golden Goal", as above, but the first team to score wins.
     • P.K.             - If the scores are still level after extra time has been
                          played, a Penalty Shootout will be undertaken to decide
                          the winner.
     "Atmospheric" Settings
     • Stadium Effects  - Toggles whether flares can be let off by supporters.
                          Note that due to a clause in KCET's contract with the
                          JFA, flares cannot be let off when the Japanese National
                          Team is playing.
     • Stadium          - Select the arena the match will be played in. Many of the
                          stadiums resemble famous real-life arenas, but their
                          names are different for legal reasons.
     • Commentary Stance- Sets the bias of the Commentators. If team is favoured,
                          the Commentary will be very supportive of that team.
     • Support Stance   - Sets which team the crowd prefers. Players Mentality
                          stats are boosted when the crowd is cheering their side
     05.b - Formations Screen
     Wow, there one helluva lot of stuff to explain here, so this doesn't make for
     light reading! BTW, listen to how badly the music is looped on this screen,
     it's laughable.
     OK, we'll go through it option by option, I think. Probably for the best.
     Allows you to edit your starting line-up, and allows changes to be made during
     the game. The players are listed by Name, Number and Position in that order.
     This is what the abbreviations for each position stands for:
        GK - Goalkeeper
        CBW - Sweeper
        CBT - Central Defender
        SB - Full Back/Wingback
        DMF - Defensive Midfielder
        OMF - Attacking Midfielder
        SMF - Side Midfielder; 'L' or 'R' denotes which flank they are playing on
        WG - Winger, Attackers that play out wide
        CF - Centre Forward
     Also, by using the (L1) and (R1) buttons, you can cycle through the players'
     form and suspensions. In PES2, 3 yellow cards recieved incurs a one-match ban,
     whilst only one red card has the same penalty. Two yellow cards in one match
     is the same as recieving a red card. Note that in some tournaments, receiving
     2 yellow cards rather than 3 will still incur a 1-match ban.
     In the second page (player form), the green bars indicate how tired a player
     is. Four green bars indicates full match fitness, whilst no bars indicates a
     player is exhausted and needs to be rested for a few matches. The coloured
     arrows on the right indicates how well a player will play in the match. Here
     is what these arrows represent:
     Red, Up - The player is on a "hot streak" and will play very well
     Orange, Up/Right - The player is doing well and should be chosen
     Green, Right - Indicates an average performance will be had
     Blue, Down/Right - Player performance is mediocre. Avoid playing this player
     White, Down - Player is in dreadful condition. Do. Not. Play
     Red, Cross Shape - The player is badly injured and cannot play
     Orange, Cross Shape - The player is injured, and will play poorly if chosen
     Arrow surrounded with a Red Square - Recovering from serious injury
     Arrow surrounded with an Orange Square - Will reach full fitness after one game
     When choosing your starting line-up, any players that are injured or under-
     performing should be weeded out and replaced by Red or Orange players. You
     may still want to include "Star" players like Owen or Rivaldo even if they
     have a blue arrow, but even they will play extremely poorly if they have a
     white arrow.
     During the later stages of a match, you may want to replace some of the more
     tired players with a set of fresh legs. Even if they are not as skilful,
     sometimes the added speed boost will work in your favour.
     Your current formation is displayed in the panel above your squad list. The
     yellow dot is your goalie, the blue dots are defensive players, the green ones
     are your midfield and the red dots are your attackers.
     By pressing (L2) and (R2) you can change this to display each players attack
     attitude (covered later) and their squad number.
     In the Formation sub-menu, you can:
     - Choose a formation from a selection of 21 premade formations
     - Create a custom formation
     - Set a player's defensive role
     The default formations are as follows:
     Default - The formation the team plays in real life
     4-5-1 A - A well balanced formation with two OMFs supporting a lone striker
     4-5-1 B - A more defensive version of 4-5-1 A.
     4-4-2 A - The classic "Diamond" formation played by Bayern Munich
     4-4-2 B - Another variation on 4-4-2 formation with the Midfielders in the
     4-4-2 C - The most commonly used formation in English football. Sven swears
               by it, I tend to swear at it, but it's all personal preference.
     4-3-3 A - Uber-attacking formation with 5 offensive players
     4-3-3 B - As above, but with one of the OMFs moving into a more defensive
     4-3-3 C - A flat midfield line that is more likely to cut out forward passes
     3-6-1 A - Offensive formation in more ways than one! Utter ****
     3-6-1 B - Fills the midfield but leaves the CF stranded
     3-5-2 A - Attacking formation that pays off with practise
     3-5-2 B - Defensive variation of 3-5-2 A
     3-4-3 A - In my opinion, the best formation available. 3-4-3 with a diamond
               midfield. Now if only it was this effective in Championship Manager
     3-4-3 B - Like above, but with two DMFs and two OMFs. Not enough width for my
               liking and can leave you exposed
     3-4-3 C - Same idea but with a flat midfield. Good if you are weak
     5-4-1 A - Good. If "good" means a nil-nil draw
     5-4-1 B - Ditto
     5-4-1 C - Why did they bother?
     5-3-2 A - Strong defence at the expence of the midfield. Good for when you are
               starting out at Master League.
     5-3-2 B - Same idea but with a defensive twist
     5-3-2 C - Like Marmite and Sophie Ellis-Bextor, you either hate it or you love
               it. (OK, OK, it's an _awful_ analogy I know)
     Custom Formations
     If you want to adapt your formation slightly to fit with your playing style,
     this is the place to go. PES2 has just about the most flexible formation
     editor I've seen (at time of publishing, CM4 is not yet available).
     Basically, if you're good enough to use this, then you don't need me to
     explain it, you just select a player and move him to the desired position.
     You'll work it out ;-)
     Defence Type
     Here you can toggle the method each player defends with. Here's a brief
     definition of what each one means.
     Covering  (CV) - Player's priority is to not allow any ball to breach his line
                      rather than focusing on any particular region or player.
     Zone Mark (ZN) - The player defending all balls within his region. The
                      simplest way to defend.
     Man Mark  (##) - Marks the selected player and tries to force him out of the
     Attack Attitude
     This is where you set each players attitude. Has less effect on the gameplay
     than you might expect, but it give you the opportunity of turning fullbacks
     into wingbacks by encouraging them to make forward run. Other than that it's
     fairly redundant as most players will respond more to their "Attack",
     "Defense" and "Teamwork" stats. It's a nice inclusion though.
     Kicker, etc.
     Here, you can set the team's captain, and who takes the free kicks and corners
     for your side. Captains should have a high Mentality stat, whilst set-piece
     takers requirve respectable stats for Free Kick Acc., Power, Curving and Shot
     Accuracy. Also, take heed of the player's prefered foot, as ideally you want
     a left-sided player taking the left corner kicks. Of course, if your player has
     the "Outside" special ability then you're sorted anyway!
     05.c - (L2) Strategies
     You may have noticed a glaring omission from the previous section? Well worry
     not as I have decided to give the Strategies page its own segment. Here, I
     will describe what each strategy does, and when it can be usefully applied.
     Unless you set the strategies to auto (which is advised if you are a novice)
     then these strategies are performed by holding (L2) and pressing (O), (^), ()
     or (X) button to turn them on or off.
     The strategies you can perform are:
     Normal        - Balanced play
     Centre Att.   - Focus all attacking play into the centre by moving all wide
                     players inwards
     R. Side Att.  - Focus all attacks on the right wing
     L. Side Att.  - Focus all attacks on the left wing
     Opp Side Att. - If the player you are controlling is on the wrong side of the
                     pitch, triggering this will cause him to stay there
     Change Side   - All wide midfielders and attackers switch side, to confuse the
                     opposition and leave their marking in tatters
     CB Overlap    - Allow the centre back to join the attacking play
     Zone Press    - Stifle the player with the pass to attempt to regain
     Counter Att.  - Increase the gap between forwards and the midfield, making long
                     ball, "Route 1" style play more effective.
     Offside Trap  - Requires immaculate timing. Causes the defense to move forward
                     simultaneously in an attempt to catch the opposing striker
                     in an offside position. Needs to be executed exactly 2 seconds
                     before the pass is made.
     2x Formation  - Change to the formation specified.

     06.a - Attributes Explained
     The ability of each player in Winning Eleven 6 is determined by a variety of
     numerical values called attributes. A high value indicates that the player is
     very able in the field specified. A low value means that they are very poor in
     this area.
     Here, I will explain what each attribute means and it's affect on the player
     possessing it. If you want to view your player attributes, then they can be
     found easily in the Formations screen, or in the Transfers screen if you are
     playing in Master League mode. If, for some reason, you would like to change
     the values of a particular player, this can be achieved in Edit Mode, under
     the "Modify Player" section.
     These are the definitions of each attribute:
     • Attack
       Sets the attacking ability of the player. A high attack stat favours
       attacking players such as strikers and wingers.
     • Defence
       Sets the defensive ability of the player. As you might expect, this favours
       defensive positions such as... drum roll... defenders and goalies.
     • Balance
       Determines how sturdy the player is, thus determining the players resistance
       to challenges by the opposition. As a general rule, if your player's Balance
       stat is higher by 20 than the challenging player's, your player will not be
       affected by a tackle. This, however, is not true of aerial challenges.
     • Stamina
       Determines the players endurance. A player with a high Stamina stat will
       fatigue less quickly, and is therefore likely to perform better than a
       player with low stamina during the closing stages of a match.
     • Speed
       Sets the players maximum speed when running. Increases the player's speed
       when dribbling to a certain extent. Particularly useful for wingers.
     • Acceleration
       This affects the amount of time required for a player to reach maximum
       speed. A high value means a player will reach maximum speed in a shorter
     • Response
       The higher this value, the more sensitive the player is to stray balls. For
       goalies, this means that the 'keeper is more likely to successfully perform
       a "reaction save". A striker with a high response will be able to make clever
       runs between pairs of defenders, but this creates a higher risk of being
       caught in an offside position.
     • Dribble Accuracy
       Affects the player's capabilities when running with the ball. A high value
       means the player will run with the ball closer to his feet, thus allowing him
       to change direction more quickly.
     • Dribble Speed
       The higher this value, the difference in speed between running with or without
       the ball is lessened greatly.
     • S-Pass Accuracy
       Affects the accuracy of your players ground passes. A high value increases the
       success rate of passes by this player.
     • S-Pass Speed
       A high value equals quicker passes, which in turn reduces the likelihood of the
       opposition intercepting your ground passes.
     • L-Pass Accuracy
       The higher this value, the better the accuracy and success of long passes.
     • L-Pass Speed
       The higher this value, the greater the velocity of long passes and crosses.
     • Shot Accuracy
       Determines how likely a shot will be on target. A high value results in more
       accurate attempts at goal.
     • Shot Power
       The higher this value, the more powerful a player's shot is. Players with high
       power stats are more likely to score as the 'keeper has less time to react to
     • Shot Technique
       This stat determines how likely a player is to score from difficult positions,
       e.g. long-distance or when the angle is tight.
     • Header
       The higher this value, the more accurate a headed pass or shot will be.
     • Jump
       Determines how high the player can jump, thus increasing the likelihood of
       winning aerial confrontations.
     • Technique
       How skilful a player is. Players with a lower value tend to bounce the ball too
       much when controlling the ball, making it easier for the opposition to close the
       player down.
     • Curving
       Sets the amount of curve the player can put on the ball from free kicks and
       corners. Does not seem to have any effect in open play.
     • Aggression
       Players will commit to tackles more fiercely if they have high aggression stats.
       Goalies will be more likely to involve themselves in the tousle near the
       goalmouth when free kicks and corners are being taken. A player may also be more
       inclined to break through the defense single-handed.
     • Mentality
       The higher this value, the effect of fatigue on the player's performance will be
       lessened. The player will tend to make an extra effort and play better when his
       team is losing. A low value in this situation can result in the player refusing
       to apply himself fully during the later stages of the match.
     • Stability
       A better name for this would be "consistency". Affect the players ability to
       maintain match fitness, even when playing consecutive games.
     • Team Work
       The higher this value, the more likely it is that passes to other players will
       succeed. Also, the player is more perceptive to the actions of other players and
       will make more intelligent plays to accomodate their style of playing. When
       signing players in Master League, players with good Teamwork stats will fit in to
       the squad much more quickly than players with lower stats in this area.
     06.b - Special Abilities
     These are the stars that can be seen under some players attribute lists.
     Players possessing these stars may be able to perform special abilities or
     they may be particularly adept in some areas such as dribbling or passing.
     These abilities, when combined with strong attributes can create exceptionally
     skilled players. To find out if a player possesses a particular ability, look
     for a star in the field you want to find out about, if a star is visible, the
     player has this talent.
     Here is a list of what all of the star abilities mean:
     • Dribble Ability
       Computer controlled opponents or team-mates favour dribbling when in
       possession of the ball.
     • Post Player Ability
       Improves the players ability when standing in the goalmouth during corners
       and free kicks. Also minutely affects the players teamwork and passing
     • Positioning
       The player positions himself well in front of goal. Increases likelihood of
       a pass to him resulting in a chance on goal.
     • Reaction
       Increases the frequency of the player making darting runs at goals, but also
       increases the likelihood of being caught offside. Increases the
       effectiveness of goalkeepers.
     • Scoring
       Increases the player's goal-scoring rate. Essential for strikers.
     • Playmaker
       Allows the player to perform extremely well timed and paced passes towards
       the front line of attack. When controlling this player, other team-mates
       will assist you by running into helpful positions in front of goal.
     • Passing
       Players with this ability have increased awareness of his team-mates'
       position and his passes reflect this.
     • B. F. Feint
       Allows the player to perform feints and "dummies" with both feet. See
       section 02.d ("Feints, Dummies and Tricks") for more information on how to
       perform these.
     • P.K.
       Increases the likelihood of scoring from a penalty kick.
     • 1-1 Score
       Makes a player more likely to score during one-on-ones. Also increases the
       effectiveness of chip-shots, in particular the low-trajectory, (R1), chip-
       shot. (See 02.c for more info on this)
     • L-Throw
       Throw-ins performed by this player can travel distances of up to 40m!!
     • 1-Tch Pass
       Improves the accuracy of direct-play or "first-time" passes.
     • Outside
       Allows the player to use the outside of his boot when taking free kicks or
       corners. Allows the player to curve the ball in either direction.
     • Marking
       A player with this ability is good at positioning himself, and he is able
       to stay with the player he is marking more effectively.
     • D-Line
       Increases the effectiveness of the "offside trap" by synchronising the
       forward movement of the defence.
     • Fd. Kick
       Able to make "Feed Kicks" or low trajectory passes. Useful when clearing the
       ball or when taking goal kicks.
     • P.K. Goalie
       Improves the goalie's ability to save penalty kicks.
     • 1-1 Goalie
       The 'keeper will be more responsive to shots from close range, and is more
       able to steal the ball from the feet of attackers.
     • Injury Tolerance (A, B or C instead of a star)
       How likely a player is to be injured by aggressive tackles. 'A' indicates
       strong resistance, while 'C' shows proneness to ailments.
     06.c - Peculiar Players
     This section is a bit of indulgence really, but it's interesting nonetheless.
     Basically this section is where all the players with strange abilities are
     listed. There isn't any particular point to this, but it's stuff you can show
     your mates and pretend to be all knowledgable about it. Or, you may just want
     a goalkeeper who doubles up as a striker for when your squad is riddled with
     If anyone else knows of any strange players I have overlooked please contact
     me via email and I will add the player to my list.
     Right, are you sitting comfortably? Good, let's go...
        Name:   Jorge Campos
        Nation: Mexico
        Height: 168cm
        Age:    35
        Pos:    GK, CF
        *      *      *      *      *
        If you hadn't already figured it out, Jorge Campos is a goalkeeper who
        moonlights as a centre-forward. He has a special ability in dribbling and
        at roughly 5'5", must surely qualify for one of the World's shortest
        International goalkeepers.
        Name:   José Luis Chilavert
        Nation: Paraguay
        Height: 192cm
        Age:    36
        Pos:    GK
         *      *      *      *      *
        Not only is this guy an amazing 'keeper, he also possesses a goal-scoring
        record at International level that many forwards would look up to! Not
        only does he frequently assist his forwards by joining them in the box
        when corners are taken, he also takes all of their free kicks and penalties.
        He has scored more free kicks for his country than Roberto Carlos, and his
        huge 6'5" frame make him a huge presence in the air.
     Okay, I'm afraid that's all I have time for now, what with revision and all
     that :-(. Fret not, for you can expect profiles for several more players in
     my next update. Now onto more pressing matters...

     07.a - What is Master League?
     Probably the most addictive football experience on any console, that's "what"!
     I have totalled approximately 150 hours playing Master League mode on Winning
     Eleven 6, and I would like to think that I have learnt every nuance of it
     pretty damn well. Master League is probably the coup de gras of this game,
     that nails shut the coffin for both FIFA and TIF.
     Anyway, enough salivating/FIFA-bashing (for now, at least), business before
     The basic premise of Master League mode is to choose a team and - starting as
     a squad of nobodies - build it up to stage where you can beat all competition
     and finish first in Division One. You start in Division Three, and your goal
     is to win matches and have your team promoted through the divisions to
     eventually become champions of the World... wuhahahahahah!
     "So, how do I achieve such a feat?" I hear you ask, and God knows enough
     emails have found their way to my inbox asking just that, so I'll tell you...
     now! It's all about points you see, and what do points win..? Surprisingly
     not prizes, but instead they are used to ensure your survival. If your points
     drop below zero, you are declared bankrupt, and (wah-wah-wah) it's GAME OVER
     for you, my son. So, points are very important, get it? Got it? Good!
     These "points" that I speak of are used primarily to pay your players' wages,
     but if you manage to accumulate a stack of the things, then you are able to
     sign new players to strengthen your squad. You win points by winning matches
     and vice versa if you suffer a defeat, simple as that... well, it's a bit
     more complicated than that, truth be told. So complicated, in fact, that I've
     dedicated a section to it (07.b). Players' wages are deducted after each
     fixture, so bear this in mind when attempting to buy new ones. Buy too many
     and the extra wages might thump your finances into the red, which you
     _definitely_ want to avoid.
     The teams are split into three "divisions", aptly named Division One,
     Division Two and Division Three. Divisions One and Two consist of 16 teams,
     with the smaller Division Three consisting of just 10 teams. Fixtures are
     arranged in a manner that each team will play every other in their division
     twice, once at home and once away. The rankings are decided by each team's
     "points" score. This might confuse some, but these points are NOT the points
     mentioned in the last paragraph, but another quantity applied to each team
     to determine their league standing. Every win in the league will gain you
     3 points, a tie will get you a single point, and losing gets you nothing,
     nada, zilch. In the event that two or more teams' points are equal, then
     the team's goal difference is used to separate them (goals scored minus
     goals conceded). The team ranked first after all fixtures have been played
     are declared champions.
     Besides the regular league-based format of the three divisions, there's also
     a couple of round robin tournaments for you to negotiate:
     • The Tiny Cup - Tournament for Division Three teams only, taking place
                      directly after the end of the season.
     • The Masters Cup - Another tournament but only for teams in the top two
                         divisions. Consists of five rounds, interspersed between
                         the regular league fixtures.
     Winning these extra competitions will result in a sizeable increase in your
     points balance, so they should not be taken lightly.
     07.b - Points
     There is a simple formula to determine how many points you will receive in
     a fixture:
     Listed below are the values awarded for each type of fixture, which can then
     be substituted into the above formula to work out the points won in a match.
     It is worth noting that there is no difference in the way that points are
     allocated in each difficulty, it just feels like it ;) Also, points are not
     lost for conceding goals, so winning 2-1 is the same as winning 2-0. It's the
     one aspect of the system that I don't like, but who am I to complain?
     Every match result will award you points in the following manner
     Win:       700pts
     Draw:      300pts
     Loss:        0pts
     Goal:       50pts (per goal)
     For example, a 3-0 win will award you with 950 points, from which your
     players' salaries will be deducted.
     As you will probably work out for yourself, this piddling amount won't buy you
     many new players. In Extreme you'll be lucky to get through a season avoiding
     bankruptcy, believe me. To earn the serious money you need to win competitions
     such as the league titles and the various cup competitions. Not only does
     winning the Master's Cup win you thousands of points, but no salary points are
     expended in cup games either. Awesome *air-guitars*!!
     So remember, league for survival, cups for players - unless you're on Easy of
     course. You really would have to _try_ and make yourself bankrupt on this
     setting. If you stick to this then survival in Master League should come more
     easily :)
     07.c - Transfers
     The only way to improve your squad in Pro Evo is to buy better players, or
     to loan them from other clubs. Unfortunately, the way transfers are dealt with
     is different depending on your difficulty setting, so what works in Easy might
     not work in hard mode. So you're going to need to do a bit of experimenting
     yourself. You can do it, yeah ^_^!!
     Transfer Value
     This value is only visible when negiotiating a contract with a player who is
     tied to another club. This value is how many points the player's club want in
     order to release their player. Clubs are unlikely to sell short of their
     asking price, so expect to pay in excess of 10,000 point (ouch) for World
     class players like Totti, Zidane or Recoba. REMEMBER: This value is not a
     reflection of the player's ability, but the value that he holds to his club
     team. If a player is the star of a particular teams squad, expect to pay
     through the nose, and possibly your ears.
     Yearly Wages
     This value is paid by the player's club every year. As a general rule, a
     player will not want to leave his club for anything less than what he is
     already being given. Exceptions to this include if a player is not a first
     -team regular, has been dropped due to a new signing taking his place or, of
     course, if the player is playing in a lower division. Don't pay more than a
     player will be worth to you. If he is costing you 30 points a match, you need
     to make sure that his presence will ensure an extra goal every game.
     Another good thing to remember in times of frustration is that some players
     just don't want to move, they are perfectly happy where they are, thanks all
     the same :P
     Useful Advice
     Particularly on higher divisions, players are quite snobby about what teams to
     move to. If you're in Division Three on Expert mode, God help you! Only some
     free agents (players without a club - salaries listed in white) will come near
     you. Therefore, you need to be very careful which players you invest in. Unless
     you're in Division One and your goal is to build a super-team (covered later),
     only buy players you intend to play in the first-choice lineup. If you play 442
     then there is little need to blow your wad on three strikers. Although they
     aren't brilliant, your default team will do as substitutes even at the highest
     And of course, make sure you buy a range of players. It's alright if your
     strikers score three times a match, but if your weaker defence let's four through
     then you are, as we experts call it, "screwed"!
     If a player still refuses to sign after you have offered him 25% more than what
     he is asking for, don't go any higher. You will be wasting your money, which you
     _cannot_ afford to do.
     Right, now you know _how_ to transfer players, you want to know _what_ players
     you should buy?! Well if you would just gimme a sec I was going to do that
     07.d - Best Buys
     OK, this is how it works. I write down all of the positions available in the
     game. I then list the best players in that position, and for the Extreme
     players out there, I also put in a couple of decent players you might want on
     a tight budget. Then, you read it and take heed. You then become better at
     Master League mode. Simple, capische. Even simpler, I've marked all the cheap
     players with a *.
     BEST GKs
     Oliver Kahn                        - Germany             - B. Munich

     Paul Robinson                      - England             - Leeds
     My Pick: Yashin, every time. 150 penalty saves in a career, what more can I
              say. Won't let you down due to his large frame and lightning-quick
              response. If you haven't unlocked him yet, go with Kahn. He ain't
              cheap, mind. In Division Three, try loaning Robinson for someone
              decent between the sticks.

     Carlos Gamarra     (Garama)        - Paraguay            - No Club*
     My Pick: Rijkaard, he is pure class. An excellent tackler, passer and ball
              -holder, capable of making decisive clearances and darting runs. To
              partner him, I would choose Cannavaro over Nesta, despite his lower
              defense stat. He is tall and a brilliant header of the ball, as well
              as being solid enough to stop dead any forward in his tracks.

     My Pair: Passarella and Thuram, could cause some controversy, but I like using
              my SBs for their primary purpose, defending. They just don't come
              more solid than these two.

     My Pick: Beckenbauer or Keane, depending on your style of play. I normally side
              with Keane due to his high mentality and teamwork stats, but it'd hard
              to argue against playing Beckenbauer, who just oozes class. It's your
              call really, but bear in mind that Keane'll hurt your wallet more.

     My Pick: So many to choose from, but Rivaldo's superior crossing and long-
              range shooting ability gives him the edge over the competition. You

     My Pick: Any of them! Seriously, pick one from the top five and pair him with
              one of the bottom six and you'll score 60+ a season. Brilliant.
     07.d - Promising Players
     What are promising players?
     In short they are a waste of time, unless you're one of those fluffy RPG types
     who takes delight in spending hour-over-hour "levelling-up" your characters.
     This one's for you. Anyone else, don't bother, seriously. Just enjoy the game
     and don't make it a chore.
     Still here, ok. Promising players are occasionally found in the "Free" section
     of the Negotiations menu. They have terrible stats, worse than those found on
     your default team, but they have "potential". It is your job to bring out this
     "potential" and develop your player to suit your team.
     Another, different type of "points" are used in this part of the game,
     "Ability Points". You can use these in the Training Promising Players screen
     under Team Management to increase your player's ability. One point will buy
     you a single attribute point, whilst 25 will get you a special "star" ability.
     How are the points allocated?
     Like this... (as far as I can gather)
     Playing a full 90-minute match                                           20pts
     Winning a match                                                          20pts
     Tieing a match                                                            5pts
     Playing part of a match (subbed on or off)                                5pts
     Team goal scored                                                          1pt
     So, playing in a full 90-minute match and winning 2-1 would give your player
     42 points to train with. Losing a match gets you no points, but the appearance
     and goal-scoring points are still awarded.
     Stats to build up
     It's up to you, but I would recommend studying the stats of some of the best
     players in the position your promising player plays in, and trying to match, or
     better that player's stats.
     Two stats that are commonly ignored are Teamwork and Mentality. Read the "Stars
     and Stats" section for more details, but to simplify, high values in these
     stats will affect your player's performance more than any other. Don't neglect
     Also, make sure that you get the Attack and Defence stats at the right
     proportion. You don't want to give a 99 to both of them for a striker, causr
     although he'll be really aggressive in attack, he'll want to come back for
     corners and free kicks, making counterattacking nigh on impossible.
     Finally, remember that you only have 30-odd games to perfect your player, so
     spend those points wisely.
     07.e - Brief Walkthrough
     Oh God, why am I doing this? I can just see it now, endless emails about this
     section. Why did I decide to write something so subjective that practically
     everybody will have their own opinion and flame me about it? WHY?!!!
     The "why", of course, is obvious. There are people out there that maybe bought
     this game with no prior knowledge of soccer, so the idea of building a World-
     beating squad would seem a pretty daunting challenge. This section is for such
     people. Don't follow this as gospel, just a helping hand in your quest to
     conquer the World of Soccer. That, after all, is the definition of "guide".
     I am writing this assuming that you are a competent player of the game. Read
     through my Winning Strategies section to give you some idea of what I mean by
     this. So, without further ado, I shall begin in earnest.
     Unless you are a devoted supporter of one of the clubs here, pick either Real
     Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester Utd., Juventus, Milan, Inter. By doing this,
     you are making the strong players from your chosen team available on a free
     transfer. This makes your task much easier, as you can buy top-drawer players
     without having to pay the 7,000+ points transfer fees.
     A quick peek into the "Formations" menu will shock first-timers, as their side
     will not consist of their real-life squad, but a 23-man band of unknown
     players. Upon viewing their stats it would be fair to describe them, at best,
     as mediocre (I won't repeat the words that I actually said, children reading
     this ya da ya da...)
     Konami have somewhat deviously mixed up your squad so that your starting eleven
     is not necessarily your "Winning Eleven" (sorry!). Also the default formation
     (3-5-2) does not allow you to field all of your best players at once. So that
     should be changed accordingly to a "4-4-2A" formation, or if your are weak
     defensively, a "5-3-2C". Unless they are injured or fatigued, you should always
     play Huygens ("Oranges118") and Castello in attack, with Castello slightly
     deeper to accomodate his good speed and acceleration.
     Here are two effective teams to field at the start of your Master League
                                      4 - 4 - 2 A
                                      = = = = = =
                          Ximenes                   Espinas
                             x                         x
                                       Cellini (c)
                 Eddington                                    Valery
                     x           Daric        Vorlander          x
                                   x              x
    This formation is good as there is a lot flexibility and a tight midfield "box"
    which ensures that most central attacks from the opposition can be closed down
     quickly and efficiently. There is a bit of weakness in the flanks, but Valery
                   and Eddington are usually quick enough to react.
                                      5 - 3 - 2 C
                                      = = = = = =
                    Ximenes             Cellini             Espinas
                       x                   x                   x
          Eddington                                               Natchegall
              x                                                       x
                          Daric        Vorlander       Valery
                            x              x              x
      Another effective formation which covers more of the pitch than the 4-4-2A
    system. The defence is rock solid and the flat midfield is harder to intercept
    and provides much needed width. The only concern here is that often you will be
        caught short when attacking on the break. Useful if you're defending is
              lacklustre, but you'll be hard pressed to score many goals.

     In Division Three, there is a 7-match "window" in which players can be signed.
     This "window" commences after Match 3 has been played, and ends after Match
     10. In the period between matches nine and ten, new negotiations are not
     allowed, as this final period is used to finalise the negotiation process.
     There is another opportunity to buy players in the off-season period.
     Sound advice when signing new players is to only buy players if they will
     definitely improve your squad. For example, if your defence isn't strong
     enough then purchasing of a defender is a must, whereas buying a new striker
     is not so important if you win most of your fixtures.
     As soon as Match 3 is finished, try signing these players:
     • Tijani BABANGIDA (Nigeria) - 350pts
     • Taribo WEST      (Nigeria) - 345pts
     • Emile MPENZA     (Belgium) - 475pts (a lot, but worth it)
     Don't sign more than three players at a time. Of course, if you chose Real
     Madrid, then you'll want to sign Hierro instead of West, and many clubs will
     have superior players to these, but you'll be hard pressed to find many free
     agents who outperform these guys. If you've unlocked the Classic players, then
     you, my friend, are laughing.
     After one season in Master League Division Three (EXTREME), this was my team:
     GK  - Cordoba       (Columbia, 400pts)
     CBT - Espinoza*     (Ecuador, 250pts) - default name is "Espinozi"
     CBT - West          (Nigeria, 345pts)
     SB  - De La Cruz*   (Ecuador, 200pts) - default name is "Ulisees"
     SB  - Eddington
     DMF - Mostovoi      (Russia, 255pts)
     LMF - Wome          (Cameroon, 220pts)
     RMF - Babangida     (Nigeria, 350pts)
     OMF - Nakata        (Japan, 110 pts)
     CF  - Mpenza        (Belgium, 475pts)
     CF  - Olisadebe     (Poland, 410pts)
     Get a team of this standard by the end of your first season, and you'll have no
     trouble topping Division One. My partnership of Mpenza and Olisadebe managed to
     score 150 goals in a single season in Division Two. If you play in Easy or
     Normal difficulty, you may be able to sign these players for values less than
     those given.
     Next up are some "Dream" line-ups that I have built up in Master League
     mode... Only experts need apply.

    ============================================================= #####    #######
    ============================================================== ####     ####
    ================================================================== #####
     08.a - What is it?
     The UMBRO Pro Training Challenge is a series of tough challenges to test your
     Pro Evo skills. For beginners they are extremely taxing, and for pros there is
     still an element of challenge, especially in the Challenge King mode. Read on
     for valuable advice on how to beat this mode. As an added incentive, by
     beating these challenges you unlock several new players that can be bought in
     Master League mode.
     I will list the best players (IMO) for each task alongside each title.
     08.b - Dribbling
     Use: either Owen, Shevchenko, Recoba, Rivaldo, Babangida or Nedved.
     Probably the easiest challenge. Use the analog stick or d-pad, depending on
     personal preference. I prefer the analog stick, but there are people out on
     the GameFAQs message boards that will maim and kill anyone who doesn't use the
     d-pad. As I said, it's your choice.
     The best way to tackle this task is to learn the course really well. Don't
     overuse the (R1) button, only use it during the long straights at the bottom
     of the pitch, and also during the last four sets of cones.
     Turning sharply can gain vital seconds. Hitting cones is a no-no, and over-
     running the cones will lose you valuable time and will likely cost you the
     task. Be careful while negotiating the series of tight turns at the start.
     If you're good, then you can begin holding the direction of the next turn
     earlier (i.e. just as you pass the cone), you can make these turns very
     quickly indeed.
     Precision is the key. After a few failed attempts, you should be hitting the
     1000 point mark. By ironing out all of your mistakes, you should be able to
     attain the elusive 1100 point "Fantastic" status. Timewise, around 38seconds
     should be quick enough.
     Unlocks: Dejan SAVICEVIC
     08.c - Short Pass
     Consists of a team of five players. Choose Real Madrid (Navarro) as your team.
     Use: Zidane, Figo, Roberto Carlos, Raul, Savio.
             DD       4
     You start in a Pentagon formation with two players in the centre, trying to
     tackle the ball from you (see the diagram above). If you lose possession then
     you automatically fail the task.
     In order to score the highest points, pass with your first touch by pressing
     (X) and the desired direction slightly before receiving the ball. This is
     the most effective way to avoid losing possession.
     You need to make around 45 passes in the allotted time to achieve the elusive
     "Fantastic" rating. Not easy at all, but it should come with practice.
     TIP: I find that by passing the passing the ball in the order 1, 5, 4, 3, 2.
          This is not only effective at evading the defense, but also stops you
          from returning the ball to the player who last passed it (this is worth
          only half points).
     Unlocks: Carlos VALDERRAMA
     08.d - Manual Pass
     Use: Rivaldo, Roberto Carlos (Brazil)
     This is horrendous for most on their first attempt. However, if you use my
     "centre circle" method then this will soon become the easiest challenge of the
     lot. If you have read my controls section (02.b-d) then you will know that a
     manual pass is performed with the right analog stick. In this challenge, one
     player is controlled by you, and one in controlled by the A.I.
     The Centre Circle Method
     Make sure that your player stays fixed standing on the central dot in the
     centre circle. By doing this, you are effectively using the perimeter of the
     centre circle as a guide. As a rule, the COM player will pass the ball to you
     and then wait on this perimeter line, rendering this challenge somewhat less
     challenging than intended. Tilt the right analog stick in the direction
     relative to where the COM player is standing.
     Imagine the centre circle is a clock face. If the COM player is standing at
     3 o'clock then (providing you are in the centre of the circle) you can simply
     tilt the still to the right. Once you have mastered this method, you should be
     able to make 30 to 40 passes in the time provided.
     Unlocks: Enzo SCIFO
     08.e - Free Kick Long Pass
     Use: Beckham, his Long Pass Acc. stat is 99!!
     Okay, it's all down to you. I'm sorry, but I can't come round your house and
     show you how to do this, you'll just have to practise. And it will probably
     reduce you to a shambling heap of profanity before you beat it.
     Right now that's out of the way, let's try and dole out some helpful advice.
     Basically, you have to land the ball on the target and depending on how close
     you land to the red dot in the centre, the more points you earn. A maximum of
     320 points can be obtained for each of the five attempts.
     As the positioning of the target is completely random, you will have to use
     your best judgment to decide how hard you need to hit the ball to play an
     accurate ball.
     The hardest targets to hit are the very close range target that require only
     the lightest of taps to the (O) button. The amount of frustration you will
     endure is excruciating, but I assure you that you _will_ get the hang of it.
     TIP: Hold [U] to lower the trajectory of the pass for the targets that are
          further out. You will rarely need to fill the gauge more than a third.

     08.f - Free Kick Shoot
     Use: Beckham or Recoba
     Again, this is an absolute bi... very hard challenge indeed (ahem!)
     As well as accuracy, speed is also taken into account when totaling the points
     scored. You need three hard shots out of five to pass through the red section
     of the target to succeed, otherwise five reasonably accurate attempts are
     needed. Avoid using swerve on your shots as this only serves to slow the ball
     down. That's about it for advice here. Good luck, you'll definitely need it!!
     TIP: Read my Free Kicks section (02.f) for in-depth info on taking free-kicks.

     08.g - Possession
     Use: The Argentina Squad
     It just does not get any easier. Obviously Konami have no concept of the
     learning curve. As the name suggests, this challenge tests your ability to
     maintain possession of the ball whilst confronted with an increasing number
     of opponents.
     There is, of course a much easier method to complete this challenge, but if
     you would rather do it the honest way then skip the next paragraph. You have
     been warned.
     By running up and down the pitch about 25-yards from the opponents goal-line,
     you fall between the areas where the defence or the midfield may try to steal
     the ball from you, hence you won't be tackled. If, by chance you a pressurised
     by a defender, quickly pass away and make the same run with the other player.
     Provided the player has good dribbling stats, you should be able to hold
     possession for the two minutes required to obtain "Fantastic Status"
     Unlocks: Didier DESCHAMPS
     08.h - Challenge King
     Right, so you've clearly got what it takes to finish the challenges, now here
     comes the real acid test. You have to complete all six Pro Challenges _in
     sequence_ and accumulate a total score of 5100 or more to get a "Fantastic"
     rating here. Remember, if you screw up, you've got to start ALL OVER AGAIN!!
     TIP: Expect to mess up in the Possession section. You will, trust me.

     can, however list what tasks need to be performed and which players can be
     So, firstly, here are the tasks that you need to perform:

     09.c - Secret Modes & Options
     You may have noticed whilst scrolling the menus that there are two options
     that are locked and have their titles obscured by ?s. These are:
     Master League Vs. National Team
     This mode allows you to pit your saved Master League teams against any
     National side. To unlock it, win the Master League Division One with any of
     your teams.
     Edit Call Name
     This mode enables you to change the name that the commentator refers to each
     club team by. It is found in the Edit Club Team screen and it means that Man
     Utd. are no longer the laughably monikered "Aragon". Arsenal fans will still
     have to make do with "London" though :-(. Only the names of several famous
     cities are available, to avoid licensing issues.
     To unlock this feature you have to win the "Konami UMBRO Cup" under these
    	- 3-Star Difficulty or higher.
    	- Club teams must be used.
    	- Round Robin format is selected.
     There is no limit upon the number of teams used, so to keep it short play a
     small tourney with 3 teams.
     09.d - Free Kicks... A Cheater's Guide
     I knew it, you're just a dirty cheat really aren't you?! Oh well, I did warn
     you. So here we go, the Cheater's Guide to Free Kicks.
     This only works near the edge of the box, but it's an almost guaranteed goal.
     Use Beckham. This only works on the edge of the 18-yard box. Line up your
     player so he is facing towards the side of the goal that the goalie is not
     guarding. Now, with a delicate tap of the circle button the ball will fly into
     the goal. The defensive wall will jump over the ball leaving the goalie
     somewhat furious. Nine times out of ten this will result in a goal being
     scored, which is somewhat better than most people's regular free kicking
     average. It's better than mine (in the game) or David Beckham's (real life)
     free kick scoring rate, even!
     I could not get this to work until recently, but the free kick cheat from the
     last instalment  also remains. This is slightly trickier than the other trick,
     but on the plus side it works with almost any player, and if it works then it
     looks amazing ^_^.
     Simply line the free kick up as you would in the previous trick, but this time
     hold [Down] and fill up the gauge completely by holding down (O). If you lined
     it up right, and your luck's in, the ball should fly into the back of the net
     at the sort of pace that Roberto Carlos would envy.
     The trick to this method is getting the ball lined up so that it will either
     go between a defender's legs, or so that it squeezes itself between a pair of
     defenders. If you get it right then your free kicks should fire home about 50%
     of the time.
     You filthy, rotten cheat... you disgust me!!

     And now for the most thorough and time-consuming section of this guide. I'm
     almost certain all of the player names are correct.
     If you know for sure I am incorrect, then email me, but I'll need some good
     evidence to back up your claim, i.e. a link to a sports site or squad list,
     BTW, please don't copy this section for your FAQ/Website. This is my own work
     and it is the result of several hours hard graft. Please don't commit
     copyright theft, it is illegal.
     OK, enjoy my hard labour and research:
     The numbers refer to each player's squad number, and if a players name has
     been corrected I have written their original (default) name in brackets.

     This section lists the correct names of each club (with the default name in
     brackets) and of each team's players. Again, I am pretty confident that this
     list is completely accurate, but there are 850+ names to mistype. As usual, if
     you see a mistake, tell me (email is in 01.d).
     I have noticed that some of the club players have been spelled incorrectly,
     even though they are of a Nationality that is licensed under FIFPro. Until
     Konami tells me otherwise, I shall label these as typos, as it's most likely
     that they are exactly that.

     Unfortunately, a request has been made by Gérard Mendes that I remove all
     trace of his work from this FAQ. As I cannot remember exactly which flags/kits
     featured were modified by me, I have removed those also. If you would like to
     see Gérard's Kits and Flags guide, follow this link:
     I am sorry for any inconvenience caused.

     This is where I will insert any questions that are commonly found in my inbox.
     As this is the first release of the FAQ, there's nothing to post here yet.
     Q: Why are some of the players names spelt incorrectly?
     A: This is due to a licensing issue. You see Konami have bought a contract
        with FIFPro to use the names of all players registered to them. This is
        why the names of most European players are correct in the game. However,
        certain countries, particularly South American Nations, are not members of
        FIFPro, hence the jumbled names of some players in the game.
     Q: Why are the Netherlands squad names simply numbered "Oranges###"?
     A: Holland are a special case. As mentioned above, they are not members of
        FIFPro, but they have threatened legal action against anyone using the
        names or likenesses of their players. This includes the "jumbled" names
        used for other, more complaicent Nations, as Holland regards this as an
        infringement. Hence, if other Nations complain about this, we may see the
        names of the Brazil squad replaced with "Selecao###" or suchlike.
     Q: Why is my team's name incorrect? Can I change this?
     A: Indeed you can. Win the Konami-UMBRO Cup on three-star difficulty using any
        club team will unlock the 'Call Name' (previously '???????') option in the
        'Edit Club Team' screen. This, unfortunately, only allows you to use the
        names of major cities, eg. Arsenal will have to stay 'London' and Celtic's
        closest match is Glasgow.
     Q: What do those coloured arrows mean in the Formations Menu?
     A: These represent the fitness and form of the player. Red, upwards-pointing
        arrows represent a player at his peak whilst white, downwards-pointing
        arrows mean that your player is on a cold streak. Avoid playing players
        that stray below the average green arrow mark. They fatigue more quickly
        and will play very poorly.
     Q: Can I change the timer in Master League mode to play longer matches?
     A: Unfortunately not. Konami implemented this to stop people from having the
        opportunity to score more goals per game, and therefore giving you an
        unfair points advantage.
     Q: I just bought a superstar in Master League Mode and he's crap, it makes no
        sense! When he plays for [previous team's name], he's amazing.
     A: Now, that isn't a question is, it? Oh well, I'll answer it nonetheless. In
        the Formations menu, highlight the player in question and press circle. You
        should see a series of numbers appear in place of the other players'
        markers. These numbers show how well each player interacts with the
        highlighted player. If you've just bought the player, the chances are these
        values will be quite low. You need to play around 20 matches for your player
        to reach his full potential at the club. Obviously, if the player has low
        Teamwork stats, like Johan Cruyff, then it could take a lot longer.
     Q: Surely there must be an easier way to score free kicks?
     A: Indeed there is! See the Secrets section 09.d for more info.
     Q: The computer cheats...
     A: No it doesn't, you are unlucky, unskilled or a combination of both.
