So far, Stekelenburg, Vonk, Lobont, Vermeer, Heitinga and Escude are finished. version 0.2: I continued with ''the Players'' section. These players are now finished as well: Trabelsi, Maduro, Vermaelen, Grygera, de Jong, Lindenbergh, Galasek, Obodai, Pienaar, Sneijerd, Maxwell, Emanuelson and Lindgren. Version 0.3 Pretty much finished the guide, I finished all the players, finished the ''team formation'' section and wrote down my final words. I also added the current selection of Ajax because the team in PES 5 is out of date. ============================ INTRODUCTION ============================ Hi and welcome to my team guide on my favorite team, Ajax. I live in Amsterdam, The Netherlands and am a big fan of Ajax, for this reason I wanted to create a team guide that may help people out who have been, or want to, play with this beautiful club. As you probably already know, Ajax isn't that big of a team in the newest Pro Evolution Soccer (hereafter reffered to as PES) but, it is 1 of the biggest teams in the Dutch league, probably second to PSV. PES 5 however, isn't really up to date as to what players have left Ajax during the season and what players have joined the team. But that doesn't matter, I'll just stick with the players Ajax has in PES 5 and tell you my strategies. In this guide I'll go through every player, give you my favorite starters line-up and give you some strategies that work well for me. But before I do that, I'm gonna take you back into the history of Ajax and share some of the highlights of the team with you. ============================ Ajax Amsterdam ============================ On march 18th 1900 Han and his brother Johan Dade started a club named Ajax. Here starts the history tour of Ajax, one of the most famous footballclubs in the world. In a century the club grew from this group of friends to a worldfamous club, known for it's beautiful and attractive football. I'll sum up the trophies Ajax won over the last 106 years. Dutch League Chanmpion: 1918, 1919, 1931, 1932, 1934, 1937, 1939, 1947, 1957, 1960, 1966, 1967, 1968, 1970, 1972, 1973, 1977, 1979, 1980, 1982, 1983, 1985, 1990, 1994, 1995, 1996, 1998, 2002, 2004 National Cup Champion: 1917, 1943, 1961, 1967, 1970, 1971, 1972, 1979, 1983, 1986, 1987, 1993, 1998, 1999, 2002 Dutch Supercup/Johan Cruyff Schaal: 1993, 1994, 1995, 2002, 2005 Champions League: 1971, 1972, 1973, 1995 European Cup II: 1987 UEFA Cup: 1992 European Supercup: 1972, 1973, 1995 World Cup: 1972, 1995 And a bunch of pre season tournaments.

A strategy that works for me is to put a player with high balance stats in the point, because this player should be free to pass at from almost any position and be able to connect with the forwards. Maduro has excellent balance but, his passing isn't really good enough. Sneijder has great passing skills but, his balance is just too low. You need to find a well balanced player in the point that has a good enough pass and balance to stay on the ball. A well balanced player like that is Galasek, he has good balance and good passing and his other stats make him a good player for that position. But having a balanced player doesn't only apply to midfielders, I think that every player should be well balanced out according to their position. Having a forward who is great at attacking and shooting doesn't mean that he's a good forward, not since PES 3. I'll show you what my team looks like when playing with Ajax. Starter Line-up: GK Stekelenburg CB Grygera CB Escude RB Trabelsi LB Heitinga RMF Pienaar LMF Sneijder AMF Galasek RWF Rosales LWF Mitea CF Rosenberg # - Position of the player. Stekelenburg __________________________\__________________________ | | | \ | | | | | | \ | | | | | |__________| | | | | | | | | | | | | | | | |____________________| | | Grygera Escude | | \ #__/ | | \_# | | | | | Trabelsi | #_______| \______# Heitinga / | | | | | | | | | | | | #____Pienaar Sneijder____# | | | | | | | | #____Galasek | | | | | | | | #____Rosenberg | | | | #____Rosales Mitea____# | |_____________________________________________________| As you can see I've got Galasek right behind Rosenberg, for me having the connection between the AMF and CF has been incredibly helpful. I put Travelsi a little bit more to the front because he's a good attacking defender, I regularly cross half the putch with Trabelsi to find either Galasek or Rosales. If I lose the ball I still have Grygera to fill up the gab. I also have Pienaar set as deffensive so that Grygera can keep his position. It works well for me, and yes, I do play against 6 star difficulty. ============================ CURRENT SELECTION ============================ The selection of Ajax players in PES 5 is already out of date, a lot has changed this year. Some players left the club, others joined and a few players from Ajax's own youth teams break through and make their first appearance in the first team. I'll give you an update of the new selection. There are some other players but they haven't played for the first team yet so I won't include them. Update as of march 11th 2006 In alphabetical order. Anastasiou Babel Boakye Boukhari Charisteas Emanuelson Galásek Grygera Heitinga Huntelaar Juanfran Lindenbergh Maduro Manucharyan Mitea Pienaar Rosales Rosenberg Sarpong Sneijder Stekelenburg Timisela Trabelsi Vermaelen Vonk ============================ SPECIAL THANKS ============================ Joel Joel for correcting me on the current selection. I had Maxwell and Escude still in it. Escude moves to Sevialla in Spain and Maxwell has moved to Italy where he will start after his injury. ============================ FINAL WORDS ============================ This was it for my team guide on Ajax, I hope this guide inspires you to choose Ajax as your team when playing the Dutch league, or that it helps in winning your games. I have a request for anybody who reads this. Can someone make me a good field so that it's easier for people to understand my positioning of the players and strategies? If you can just send me a mail and we'll talk from there on, if I can use you work I'll be sure to mention your name in the update. For questions or suggestions you can mail me at: linksan1 [AT] gmail.com. See ya!
