Which do you prefer in a game.

Some people like to score lots of goals any way they can against the CPU or other players.

Some people don't mind winning by the odd goal as long as its a well worked good goal.

Which are you?

Personally I don't care much about high scorelines, I just want to create nice plays and finish them off well for my save disk!

Also when playing an opponent I prefer to beat him with nice play, rather than beating him by scoring lots of ugly goals.

What about the rest of you, which is more important.

(Obvioulsy if I win 5-nil by playing my opponent off the park with nice play then that is ok too <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> )

Once I'm up with 2 goals or more I don't play for 100% anymore. I start to pay attention on the conversations that happen around me and so on. I just can't shut down from the outside world when I have a lead.
That's one of the reasons I have such a low number of goals scored. And I'm also not keen to butcher my opponent, for me it's important to have both much fun and exitment.

No, I know what Gunther means.

Its just a lack of concentration I guess, I am the same.

Or if I play ten games on the trot, after a while I lost something and start getting beat.

I suppose it all depends on what everyone considers a nice goal. Obviously walking past the keeper is a great goal that impresses everyone but for me, a first touch long shot from a position you dont see a goal is also considered nice.

For me it all depends on the mood. Against the comp, i may go for a high score or just try to find new ways to score, practice my skill whatever.
Against a human opponent i'm business till i get me a lead, then might try something fancy. Like Gunther says, i dont like to butcher opponents (unless provoked if you know what i mean).

Of course i should have put all these in past tense cause i havent played for a year.

On another thing you said, has it ever happened to you guys to play against the comp and talk to mates around or listen to music and do it in such a way that you dont really pay attention to the game but just go on reflexes, a sort of mechanical play if you know what i mean?
Happens to me very often, i finish a game to see 7-1 or whatever and cant remember most of the goals or how the game was going. Weird...

I think any goal is good, long curling shots into the top corners are quite good <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> those long looping up in the air, drop like a stone goals are funny, because the keeper waits and soon as the ball gets down to him, he flies off and dives to one side or the other...

Nice goals, new ways of scoring, exploring the game after 11 years. That's me.
PS: I found a new way of scoring! Long shot before the kickoff line outside the circle; the ball bounds once and goes over the keeper! Try that!

That sounds like a SWOS goal, if you ask me <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">

I noticed that sometimes the keeper in KO2 catches the ball when he is not even near it. I made a shot on goal with a lot of aftertouch, making it swerve away fast from the keeper. He dived, but was well away from it. Then, the ball just got transferred to his hands! I looked again in the replay and I am convinced that he cheated!
Oh, by the way, it was the Italian keeper. Suppose the mafia had anything to do with it?

<IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_lol.gif"> I enjoyed your post Calimero!
The keeper reacts like that very often.
The funniest bug is when the keeper dives to save outside the penalty area! That's what I call a dive!

I also remember that flying goalie bug. If you watch that back in the replay, I am sure you will see the keeper wearing a red cape and has a big S on his shirt <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_wink.gif">

Since we're talking about goalkeeper whims and goals here's a funny one that many of you may have seen.

I'm down 3-2 in a match against a friend of mine. Putting the pressure for over a minute but his goalie has managed to save shots that should have been in 90% of the times. So we're into injury time and its my last chance for a goal. I try a long shot but the moment it leaves my player i know it's going out next to the post. My friend sees that and being injury time just leaves the joystick (mistake - NEVER do that unless the final whistle is heard). I just follow the ball against all hope.
And all of the sudden, the goalkeeper decides to dive away from his post to save a shot that's going wide. And not only that but he cant keep it! The ball is parried by the goalie, the forward is completing his run and shoots the ball in the empty goal!!
Naturally, the guy had no will power to play in the extra time after that and lost 6-3! <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif"> <IMG SRC="/phpBB/images/smiles/icon_smile.gif">
