Since this forum seems to be for good players I just have to post this here for all of those that haven't already seen it since there have to be a whole lot of new visitors to these boards now... (To fill up all of these forums...) :confused:

However here he is, introducing the king of CM, the new Maradona, also known as 'Niki', here he is, SERGEY NIKIFORENKO!!!

http://www.soccergaming.tv/showthread.php?s=&threadid=34292

And for a little vote about him and another good player called Tó Madeira, go here:

We all know about To Madeira but I've never heard of Niki. I don't intend to buy him. The world doesn't need a new Maradonna.

Well, let me say it like this;

Niki whips Tó Madeiras sorry little ***!!!

No but seriously, we had a vote on who was better and the current score is 9 to 3 in favour of Niki...

He is better than Tó. It is as simple as that.

well let's put it this way get Niki as a AMC and get To Madeira as a forward it works good !

Cherno Samba is better than Madeira in my opinion. Niki doesn't really look impressive but he may surprise me.

I'm pretty sure I have the largest Shortlist ever! Its about 200 players long.

He WILL surprise you!

The first time I saw Niki I could not believe how he could score so many goals... I thought his stats sucked... Niki has made me rethink what stats are important in CM...
Look at the links I posted earlier, there are some screen shots of what will happen if you play him the right way.

I think that Joao Paiva is pretty good!!!! He scores a lot of goals!!!!!!

Sembei, Niki is on the game under medium database.

Search for "niki". He is in there.

God Joao Paiva is terrible. What team did you have him in? I know he can't do it in the Prem.

Ok.. then i can get him because i only play Argentina-Spain-Italy because my pc is to slow... ****! But i have to madeira on my squad! (The directive of my clubs says that he is the most important player on team...)...

Joao Paiva worked very well at campionato, with Perugia!!!! He also played well in Greek and Spanish league!!!! it's very useful because he can score a lot of goals and gives many assists!!!!

I began a new game as 1860 Munchen when I decided to pick up "Niki", I already had To Madiera and wanted to see what all the hubbub was about. I was horrified by the results...:eek:

I've never had a better player! Ever!!! :D

He has only played six games (no friendlies) and has racked up a total of 10 goals. He has scored two hat tricks and has received four 10's. His stats are really deceiving but remember, "Don't judge a book by it's cover" results ar all that matter and trust me, you will be getting a LOT of good results.

Madiera is doing good but nothing compared to Niki.

Don't miss out on Niki or you will regret it! :D

Aghahowa is great, but not as cheap as Niki.

I agree that Niki is a very talented goalscorer!!!! But I found something for !! I have Athletico Madrid and I signed both To Madeira and Niki. I use a very attaking tactic with 3 strikers!!! I found that when i played to madeira and niki together they scored with difficulty!!!!

Has anybody tried Changui of Deportivo la Coruna or Fernando Torres of Atletico Madrid? I recommend both those strikers. Changui has some very good stats and improves a lot. Fernando Torres has immense potential. If you get him early and train him properly, he will turn out to be well worth the investment. Perhaps not as good as Nikiforenko, but deadly nonetheless.

In my club (PSV) he has scoored goal in 1.minute on his debut, but then he didn't scoore goals any more for about 9 matches.
NIKI SUCKS!

Bull ****.
If you play him as attacking midfielder, let him run with the ball and take the penalties, he will be your best player ever!

RTWC, I have signed him on a Network game and he is slowly but surely getting better. Is this normal? (Form not attributes).

He usually explodes and scores directly but sometimes it might take a season until he is in his real shoes.
But are you playing him correctly just behind the forwards? Letting him run with the ball and taking penalties?

Theresonly1CM
25-06-2002, 09:52:PM
Maybe thats it, I need to tell him to run with the ball.

I recently signed "Niki" for Roma, and he is doing very well form wise (20 goals or so) and he has a good average rating (about 8) but his stats look useless. Do they improve, because if they do then this is one hell of a player.

The FIFA RTWC Webmaster
01-07-2002, 04:51:PM
Let him take free kicks, take long shots and play him as play maker and he will score even more...

I tried to buy "NIKI" - Found him fine - when to buy - Had to wait 4 weeks for his work permit as he was on a free transfer, and then transfer fell through, because he couldnt get a work permit. ANYONE else have this problem? and anyways for me to get him?

And if i were to get him, how would i make him "Run with ball" . I need him fo rmy team, as i play with a guy behind the front 2, but he got injured for 6 months, this could be ym perfect replacement.

Anyways - how can i give him a "work permit" cause its always saying hes failing to get one.

Thanks

His stats may not be the best: but you have to see this
He is obviously very good with the ball: great technique and dribbling
BUT HE IS ALSO VERY GOOD OFF THE BALL
He gets in the right places, and so obviously he is also a very good poacher

He'd be your perfect replacement but when you have him he'll be your first choice, believe me!
I got him a work permit by signing him as indispensible to the club. But he is hard to get to England...
To make him run with the ball just right click on him in the tactics screen. Then click run with ball, "Yes".

I haven't tried, but I think Tsigalko and Cherno Samba r the best strikers in the game.

Tsigalko, 20, he scores 42 goals in 28 league games, average rating >9. Awesome!!

And anyone tried A. Robben from PSV??

gonza9
02-08-2002, 08:32:AM
Robben starts at a small Dutch club, obviously not PSV. Haven't bought him myself, but I've read he's quite good. Buy Nikiforenko before the 1st month in your game, and you could get him for less than one mill. Pretty cheap for a boy-wonder, and quite affordable for reasonably small, mid-table clubs.

my 00/01 runs a lot faster, takes a hour to start a new game with all leagues and max database

16-08-2002, 03:27:PM
Just an opinion but why in hell would you want to do that anyway?
If you do things like that you should have a system that more then excels (2x) the optimum system requirements.
And do you really care about the N. Irish and Welsh leagues when your in Italy or Spain?

Niki is in there if you run 3-4 leagues and medium database.

Wstussyb
16-08-2002, 09:38:PM
the req for the game is like pent 233 64 mb
my computer is 1700 MGHZ 256 MB
I tried the max data base with just 5 leagues and it was the same speed
who do I really miss out if I just do the middle data base?

Zcrysis
17-08-2002, 03:01:AM
So far ive heard of one or two ggod players that make the maximum but not the medium database.
But they are comp generations on their stats so its never consistent
