From a kitmaker point of view ( a lazy one like me . . . ) the unfunctioning long sleeves in the FIFA 2004 really made it easier and faster to make kits. But then again, if they decide to bring back the long sleeves, I hope that they made the kit format to be a lot easier than in the previous year. Last year`s format is just poor. The sleeves sizes are all different and not to mention the shorts that`s got some sort of waves on it and also in different size.
i reckon this question will be answered in creation centre cos in 2002 (the last in game creation centre i can remember) they did have the decision fore long sleeves and short and i also hope you can choose boot colour maybe they might have pulses or still f 50's.
