We have to look far and wide for genuine world players,as the UKO seems to be made up of European players.
This way we could indeed find a true world champion.

I think Kick Off II has been popular (and still is) mainly in Europe.
I mean, everyone on this planet can find this site using search-engines, but most KOA-members are indeed Europeans.

I agree with you in theory Martin but will we ever find a true kick off 2 world champ?
I think not. <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_frown.gif">

When Garry Kasparov beat everyone at chess, they made a super computer to beat him. I was wondering whether the Anco boys could re-open the Kick-Off lab and write a souped-up computer player to beat Alkis.

A good start would be for it not to use 4-2-4.

Besides there is no need for a super computer,come the next tourney all players will have realised how stiff the competition is and will have practiced accordingly.
Alkis will face tougher opponents next time.
Im sure he realises this himself and will practice even harder.

Why not 4-2-4 Robert?, Naz got a 4-4 draw with Alkis and nearly beat him!

Nobody's comparing me with Kasparov, Jeez Mark... he was obviously joking.
Actually, it was 3-3, not 4-4.

Alkis what about our 1-1 draw. That was the game you scored the least number of goals in the entire tournament <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif">

That's true, I found scoring against the Beard brothers to be quite difficult.
