Hi,

A few people have asked what tactical options are available in the PSP game so I thought I'd go through them in a bit more detail here:

Team Instructions

Passing - Direct/Long/Short/Normal
Tackling - Hard/Easy/Normal
Pressing - Yes/No
Offside Trap - Yes/No
Counter Attack - Yes/No
Men Behind Ball - Yes/No
Captain - (player)
Playmaker - player)
Free Kicks (L) - Two players designated
Free Kicks (R) - Two players designated
Corners (L) - Two players designated
Corners (R) - Two players designated

Player Instructions
Passing - Over-ride to team instruction
Tackling - Over-ride to team instruction
Pressing - Over-ride to team instruction
Pass to - Where passes should be made to
Set Pieces (A) - Where a player should be during attacking set pieces
Set Pieces (D) - Where a player should be during defensive set pieces
Free Role - Should the player have a free role to roam about the pitch?
Forward Runs - Should the player make forward runs from his normal position when his team have the ball?
Run with ball - Should the player attempt to dribble forward (and potentially take on players) when he has the ball?
Hold up Ball - Should the player hold up the ball when he has it and wait for support?
Long Shots - Should the player take long shots?
Through Balls - Should the player look for creative passes to players?
Cross Ball - Should the player look to cross the ball?
Marking - Style of marking for the player?


All of these have been present in one or more of our games in the past - if you want detailed explanations of the any of the terms though as usual just ask http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_smile.gif

They are entirely different games. You should buy both http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif

Behave uncle Graeme - you know company policy .... don't suggest they purchase only one copy of each game, people require at least two in case they wear one out http://community.sigames.com/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_wink.gif
