Funny.. how some players in PM were able to shoot from that funny acute angle. you`d think he cut in and shoot or pass..but he would shoot from an impossible angle.. the keeper would take off across the other side of the goal before the <IMG SRC="/koboard/images/smiles/icon_ukoball.gif"> got near him and GOAL!! ahh the memories <IMG SRC="/koboard/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">;

I've really never played PM, only KO. I think a lot of people like PM even more than KO. What makes PM such a great game?

well, PM may be a great game but you know you can score from all angles in kickoff2? A had a "corner goal" last week. I had a free kick at the how do you call it "last line" and i scored!! Wunderfull, Wunderbar;

PM is the greatest player managing game ever. (Yeah I know the competition isn't fierce <IMG SRC="/koboard/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

The really cool thing about it was that you could make your own tactics with it, the problem was with the tactics you and no offside rule you could easily score.
The game also allowed you to control the entire team, or just one player.
It was ofcourse alot more, but thats what I remember it for.

I waited and waited for PM with KO2 and there was also talk about it, but I guess when Dino left the plans where scrapped.

Well the shooting angles I was on about was, where your or another player was zipping along the wing, or even cutting across the box, and out would blast this shot, from this oblique angle, not 45, not 90, but all places in between.
Hhahaha those defenders with the 90 degree angle shots!

Yeah you just can't do it yourself tho. Well not intentionally anyway. The keeper diving is really funny for those shots, they always dive too early and the ball goes behind them and they land way past the post <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif">

Hehe! PM and KO bags are legendary! I was on a cup game. Suddently, I noticed one player of the opposite team, running outside the court, to the bottom of the screen! When I scored, he came back in, running from outside, and the rest players were waiting for him for the kick off!!!!

PM was so much fun and yet KO2 had far better gameplay, so imaging PM with KO2 gameplay.

Then imaging PM with UKO gameplay.

Then imaging PM with UKO gameplay and with a database of a thousand teams with players from all over the world.

Then imaging the improved bits and pieces and the fact you will be able to upload the real teams (with the help of us lot!)

Wow.

Stop imagining it will be a while till we are there...

You can't beat a bit of Imagining. I was so dissapointed when the Original Player Manager never came out PM + KO2 what could go wrong with that one <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> No Need.

Roll on UPM.

Yeah, I`ll get my Mum to scan a page, so you can see what was meant to be in the original PM2 ( with KO2 ) before it went barmy army and the `other` PM2 came out
