    Hello m8s

    I have been playing FIFA for a while and have not found the answer to these, if any1 can help with aome answers it is greatly apreciated:

    1. I have read in the manual that you can use OTB during an indirect freekick. How, or what does it do? I mean: I can move my players with the usual stick in the gamepad, but don't seem to do anything woth the right stick (OTB).

    2. When you send a long pass to the wing and your player is totally alone, unmarked and runing to the ball (with the runing gamepad button / E in the keyboard) it could be a nice scoring possibility, but EVERYTIME the player instead of taking the ball and continue runing with it, he passes the ball back! and the pass is terrible, always it finishes in the foot of your adversaries. I have been caerful to not press any other button than the runing button in the gamepad.

    3. I suposse that the green bar that you see in the BIO of some players is the training level. I could not find this in the manual so I am just guessing, correct me if I am wrong.

    4. I have sold a player (Carroll in Manchester United) and Leeds have bought it. I had all the budget for that week used in training. The machine was asking for $400 for completing the transaction. I pressed OK and the player was sold (but I didn't have the 400). I have checked and the money for the transfer was depositated. What is then the advantage of having the 400 available? Does it mean something?

    That's it folks. I apreciate your comments.

    Re: FIFA Misteries?

    when the green bar gets to the top, the player's attribute (the blue bar) goes up 1 point

    1 - u can't use otb from indirect freekicks except from close range (same style as corner - this is the only otb free kicks in the game)

    2 - a bit more practice and it is easy to run on without accidentally pressing buttons (very strange question to ask)

    3 - already answered

    4 - to sell a player costs none of your weekly quota of points, no matter who the player, the cost, or how many you sell

    ok, i have a few more questions for people to answer if they can.

    1. Why oh why have EA kept this daft idea of "storing" the next pass when you lose possession. You get the ball back and your player then launches it up the pitch as the last button you pressed was shoot/tackle when the other team had the ball???

    2. Whats the point in having the brazilian league in the game if you can't use it in career mode?? or have i missed something here.

    3. Why can't you buy players from this league or from the rest of the world. You can't even swap players.

    PS2 using PS2 version of the game. Cheers in advance

    It enables you to be able to play with more flair and style, at lightning fast pace, when you get to point of being able to look 2 -3 passes ahead of you.

    Try passing, and while the ball is in transit, look for the next pass/lob. Repeat.

    I also get a little frustrated when the player retains a pass/lob/shot and messes up your move, but never take it for granted! If you think the player is going to do something he isn't supposed to, pre-empt it! Hit another button and make him do something you want him to!
