@mattmid: You should keep restarting and replaying your match against Midtjylland until you trash them mercilessly, it's every man's duty to do so! :DD

It seems you chose wisely, that roster is pretty balanced compared with some that exist on the database. But then again, as our knowledge of these players is either very limited or non-existent really, that doesn't mean you're set: it all depends on how they evolve over the years.

@miguelfcp, Well Konami chose wisely really. Which is a worry :LOL:

The first game is done and what a game it was. Two crowd heroes are born as Barry the 2m striker who also has a jumping stat in the 70's to go with it, and Hamache, a lively wide man with ATT 75, SPD 76, ACC 74 and agility 80 to go with his Sht Acc of 72, scored two goals apiece in a stunning comeback.

Lille found themselves 2 goals down after just 23 minutes and not really in it during the first half. They did however grab a vital goal on 43 minutes and then following an inspired half time team talk from the manager (despite it being in English and the players not having a clue what he was on about) the crowd witnessed a remarkable turn around. Lille quickly equalised, before getting another to go 3-2 ahead. Then, two key moments decided the game. First Pyne-Coyle for Brondby hit a great volley that only just went over with the keeper beaten. Then a late tackle from Mouaddib forced one of their player's off with all three subs already used. Lille took advantage of the extra man to add a further two goals for a 2-5 away win.

Elsewhere Midtjylland strolled to a 3-0 win in Cluj whilst the other four teams shared the points in the remaining two games.

Despite their heroics, the two heroes won't be starting the next game as several changes will be made to take a look at others in the squad.

Four games into the season now...

Game 2

Midtjylland 2-0 Lille

Midtjylland showed why their youth team is a force to be reckoned with and just why they reached the last 8 of the real UEFA Yth Lge Cup. Another pair of early goals conceded for Lille but this time not a sniff of a comeback as Midtjylland never looked like letting Lille back into the game.

Game 3

Lille 0-0 Dinamo Brest

Dinamo Brest put up stern resistance in this one despite Lille peppering their goal on regular occasions. They were unable to break them down though and Brest held on fairly comfortably in the end.

Molde 1-2 Lille

The second win of the season finally arrives as Lille edge a close encounter with the Norwegians. Lille again fell behind and for the second time this season came back to win.



Midtjylland top the early table with surprise package Radnicki 2nd only on goal difference. Brondby appear to be full of goals at both ends of the pitch whilst Cluj are still searching for their first goal of the season. A search that Lille hope to avoid when they meet them next in the D2 Cup. A game that will see those in the Lille squad who have yet to feature get their first run out of the season.

Top Scorers.

Barry (Lille)

Hamache (Lille) Pyndt, Elkjaer (Brondby) Cajuste, Simsir (Midtjylland) Haland (Molde)


Teksen (Brondby) Stanivukovic (Radnicki)

Best Ratings to date (Lille)

Barry 6.7
Zekaj 6.5
Pau 6.3
Lesage 6.3


N'Landu, an 18yr old CM is the first player to progress a complete stat level.

The pick of his stats are

Spd 73
Acc 78
DrbAcc 76
Spass 73
Tech 72

He also has playmaking, passing and middle shooting stars, so hopes are high in Lille that he will become the finished article.

I noted in a previous post about the tall striker Barry's strong points. His weakness? Mentality 15!

@mattmid: Midtjylland top of the league? Like our friend the Dinner would say, and I quote him, ":shiver::shiver:".
That's as tight of a race as it can be though. Radnicki must have a surprisingly decent squad, I don't even know the club existed at all!

About Barry, with his Mentality, it's a surprise you can convince him to get out of bed and come play some football, let alone to become the league's top scorer :DD I heard once he was coming on the pitch and some fan shouted "you're a great player Barry!" and it traumatized him for life. How can people be this cruel, he thought.

Quick update. Not far away from releasing this now, should be by the end of next week at the latest.

After a LOT of work, I've got the ML salaries looking great at the top end. :)

Just had a test League match Hajduk Split v Cukaricki that got a bit feisty to say the least - check out the foul count! :BLINK: 20 min match. Even Peter and Trevor complained about the amount of fouls :LOL: And yeah I know Hajduk is spelled wrong in the game :)

and a couple of highlights from the match - a lovely finish and a great bit of skill from the Hajduk striker that was met with a good save low down.

What will be in the OF?

122 Youth teams full of real players all born 01/01/00 or later with the teams they were at for the start of the 18/19 season. 18 'teams' of more real players for use in the ML along with Free Agent real players as well.

Over 4000 real players in total .

It won't come with kitserver kits but there are plenty about for most of these teams that you'll probably have yourself already if you want to go that way. All kits for teams who weren't in the original game have been made in game by @miguelfcp (with a bit of added flair here and there) Original game teams with licensed kits have the kits they had then. So all teams have an approximation of their kit or past kit.

A few more clips from my next three games against Arsenal, Krasnodar and Brann. Two great saves by my keeper in one Arsenal attack followed by a thunderbolt that just went wide against Krasnodar and then some chances at both ends in the Brann game. Includes a bit of chipmunk commentary from replays I increased the speed on :DD

Guys, if you want to have a taste of our next Odyssey project, The World Youth League, come join us on the Retro-PES Corner thread for a brand-new community challenge.

As you might know, me and @mattmid have been working on a revolutionary database for PES6. We called it the World Youth League, and it's the first-ever database that includes solely youth footballers.

As we're getting closer and closer to having the file ready to be released, we decided to celebrate it with a retro-PES challenge which you all will be able to participate in.

Welcome to the World Youth Cup.

The World Youth Cup is a COM vs COM competition in which you, the user, can take charge of any of the 32 participant National Teams as a football manager. You pick the final squad for the tournament, you pick the starting-11 for each match - as well as the team's formation, tactics and collective/individual strategies - and we'll let the AI take care of business. Unlike in real-life, shady practices won't have any influence on the outcome of each game: we can't buy the referee or pay the opposition to lose on purpose: if you want to win, you truly will have to outsmart your opponent and showcase your superb managerial skills.

How to play
(Choose one of the following two options for you to be able to enter this competition)
Option 1:

1. Choosing a National Team

  • Choose a team you want to manage. You can only pick a team which is not yet under human control.
    You'll be sent the World Youth League PES6 Option File
    Play PES6 and register the players you want to call-up for your chosen National Team. You can also pick the starting-11, formation and strategies.
    Send the updated Option File to either me or to @mattmid
    Et voilà, you're in!
2. Pre-Match

  • Before each match your team will be playing in, update your World Youth League OF with your desired starting-11, formation and strategies
    Send the updated Option File to either me or to @mattmid
    Et voilà, your team is match-day ready!
Option 2: But I'm lazy/I'm Busy/That's too much work for me/Etc.

If you choose the But I'm Lazy Or I'm Busy Or That's Too Much Work For Me Etc. option, you won't have to do a goddamn thing.

Step 1 - Pick the team you want to manage;
Step 2 - Sit back and enjoy the show: we'll pick the players, formations and strategies for you. We'll do all the work.
Step 3 - Et voilà.

(obviously, we'll give priority to users who choose the option 1)

If you have any doubts about the competition, don't be afraid to ask here.
