    Hi there,

    I am playing the season 03/04 (prior to the new one, where all the new transfers took place, with Kewell going to Liverpool and woodgate to newcastle).

    Formation used: 2-4-1-3

    Teams Used: Liverpool, Milan, Valencia, Bayern Munich, Barca

    Tactics Used: No Pressing, Tackling Hard, Attack from the side, No men behind the ball (this is all i remember now. )

    3 strikers!

    effective in getting goals?
    effective in most games?

    i'm playing 03/04 with ARSENAL as my favorite team.

    Using 3-4-1-2 formation or 3-4-3 with Henry, todorov and cerci as the main strikers.

    I'm using 3-3-4.

    Jole Cole, Kieron Dyer, Van Nistelrooy, Rooney as my strike force

    anyone using Liverpool??

    by the way, i'm still playing the 01/02 version,... updated with Kewell in Liverpool and woodgate in Newcastle though. i find this version easier and simpler to understand. furthermore, my PC is not that powerful enough to run the newer version. it lags too much and its too time consuming.

    i'm 4-3-3 with 2 wing backs and Hamann as the anchor man in midfield. Gerrard and Murphy centre midfield. heskey as central striker with Baros on his left and Owen on his right. left and right generals!
    but still stuggle to even beat Wolves...

    needless to say, we struggle with every match.
    reflects the current Liverpool side! oh no!

    Yup!! You need quite a good AMC behind the strikers. Try Agahowa, Mido and Owen. AMC try to get Aimar or ronaldinho or joe cole.

    Defenders: 2 center-backs with good speed and stamina (gallas and a french guy that was linked with liverpool can't remember)

    was playing liverpool in 01/02. after a while, the saved game was so huge it took 2 min for my poor P3 700mhz to load up.
    most often used formation is this weird one 2-2-3-2-1 with hyppia and chris riggott in back, 2 defensive mids (gerard and biscan) 2 wide mids (jerome rothen and murphy) and van der vaart (cost me a bundle!) in the middle. Kim kallstrom and agahowa in the attacking mid with owen in attack. This was in my second season. In the first season, you kinda realise that houllier had a point in his defensive style cos attacking just didn't pay for me with the players i had. defended my way to champions league then got some good players and finally started getting some good results with attacking football.

    another good player i found worth buying in that version is david prutton.

    ya.. i played the earlier versions too.
    mine was the 3 1/2 disk.
    still got a coach in the front cover holding a soccer ball and seemingly shouting instructions. haha

    that was really simple and straightforward then. with only around 8 attributes or 7? it was fictious players then they introduced real players into the game.

    and back then, jus stick every player in the middle of the park to thrash ur opponents. heh heh

    funny, i wonder y i delight in fantasy soccer so much now.. ever since my Liverpool keeps on losing and losing in real life... i guess i can arrest the situation in reel life, eh?
