I got a bit carried away with this one and had to split it into 3 parts to upload..!

It's based on my newly-developing theory that there are basically 5 ways to score KO2 goals.
1) Use aftertouch (swerve, lobs, freekicks)
2) Make the keeper move out of the way (runs/passes/crosses to certain "sweet" spots, drawing him out)
3) Bypass the keeper altogether (runs, passes, crosses, chips, rebounds)
4) Aim for the near post
5) Gifts (penalties, own goals, keeper error)

I've already thought of one example that doesn't fit while I'm typing this! Oh well, here's the video...

Wow! Impressive and well organised collection, Noodles! 8) 8) 8)

So to keep this thread free from discussion, I've started a separate one here as there's much to talk about here :)

From top post...

Feel free to add to this of course...

Thanks to an ace idea from Alkis (plus a little cutting and pasting from me), the KO2 Video Library is born!

KVL always welcomes YOUR video contributions .... so come on, dig out those clips or maybe even compile some new ones and just add some fine music :) 8) Must be uploaded to youtube of course!

Contrary to the popular belief that Kick Off 2 is a collection of bugs disguised as a computer game, I do not consider that first replay a bug. The player shoots as the keeper is running back to his goal, the keeper grabs the ball just a tad too late at the wrong side of the line and hastily brings it out again, the linesman calls it, the ref gives a goal. It's not a bug, it's excellent physics!

Absolutely :) I love the little 'dodgy decisions' that take place. When I first started playing the game again I always seemed to score lots of goals that went wide! Yet I can't do them now... :god:

Not that it matters but I've got a different take on the 'dodgy goal'. Iirc we don't see the ball cross the line. The shot was hit parallel to the goal and would never have been a goal had the keeper not touched it. The keeper was returning from a position behind the goal and when he touched the ball part of him was behind the line and hence the goal was given. I remember we had quite a laugh at the "parallel universe goal" on that night. I'll copy to the non-goal thread for entertainment value. :eeko: :lolo:

The second clip is an outstanding piece of defending - incredible how these goalbound shots are prevented by world class clearances - elite work Steve! :)
