    You can get this in one game, don't worry about collecting coins and saving up. Just start a 2 player local game. You get some money to start you up with. Use it to upgrade just your centre forward and centre mid-field then use the 'smash through players in a straight line to the keeper' method above.

    I had 10secs left of the 2nd half when the achievement popped.

    I used both Lucas & Chris' solutions to gain the achievement.

    I plugged in a 2nd pad and started a 2-player Local Game. Main profile as Player 1. Setup the maximum games (5) and on your MAIN profile keep upgrading your Attack & Midfield as much as it'll allow. Play each match and pick up as much money as you can for your main profile (allows further upgrades). The first 3 games I managed to injure the opposition, but until I'd maxed out the stats of my Attackers & Midfielder's, I couldn't damage them enough in the time alloted.

    Once I got to the 4th Match, my Attackers AND Midfielder's had maximum stats (200 from what I can remember). During the 4th game I used Chris' solution of simply running directly at the GK, Tackling their Centre Forward & Centre Midfielder. Their CF went off injured before half-time. Their CM went off JUST after half-time. Their GK went with around 60 seconds of 2nd half left, then straight from KO their MR got injured (presumably by my AI Team-mates). Finally, their replacement CF was injured with 32 seconds remaining.

    The best advice I can give is to upgrade as MUCH as possible as quickly as possible (might be worth using the first 3 games to gain as much cash as possible, without it you can't upgrade, and won't do enough damage without upgrading).

    It was much easier than I thought and took about 10-20 minutes maximum.

    Thanks to both Lucas & Chris for their solutions, without them I wouldn't have been able to finish the achievement as i've tried before.

    Good luck to anyone who goes for it! ;-)

    KILL KR4ZYI know the feeling. Just got the Regular Season to play. Top of D4 by a long way in 1st Season. The guides were so damn helpful as I just couldn't seem to take all 5 out, got stuck on 4 every bloody time! Couldn't put my own solution up without giving you and Lucas credit, would hardly be fair! Thanks alot though!

    This achievement can be quickly and easily done as you progress through completing the league achievement.

    After you've "thrown" the first season in order to collect some more money, the second season will start with your team back in the fourth division with more money then you had initally.

    During this season you will have the opportunity to purchase or transfer players into your team. A key first step is to pick two of the best players - each of which should cost about $1850 - and bring them into your side.

    From there, put one of them at centre forward and one at centre midfield.

    Then, wait until you play one of the really really ordinary teams in the division - Armoured Core and Revolver are the two worst. When you have a match against one of these teams, follow this simple strategy.

    From the "tip-off" in the middle, grab the ball with your high powered centre forward and just smash your way in a straight line towards the goal, ploughing through the opposition's centre forward and centre mid players.

    When you get near the opposition golaie, throw the ball so he catches it and, as he does so, slide into him, taking him out and scoring the goal.

    Rinse repeat x 30.

    Each of these forays forward should take you 5 seconds. But what they'll also do is deal serious damage to three opposition players - centre forward, centre mid and goalie.

    Your aim should be to have the opposition centre forward and centre mid out of the game injured before half time, as this will give you a full half (and a little more) to continue the "smash technique" outlined above on their replacements.

    The goalie should be taken off injured sometime during the second half, followed by the replacement centre forward and mid. Five players out of the game, achievement unlocked.

    I was able to get this achievement with 40 seconds on the clock in the second half, so there is extra time in case the opposition players actually do grab the ball and throw it away - when this occurs just grab the ball and throw it forward yourself so you can score a goal quickly and have play taken back to the middle of the arena for a restart.

    You can do this online or locally. I did mine online with a friend. First of all, set up the matches so that its the longest and most games...best of 5 i think. Then when your in the game, get the ball electrified and go to the corner near the enemy goalie. Pass the bass straight across and it should knock down 2-3 players. Try and have a fellow team-mate on the other side of the goalie so that you can catch it. Then throw it right back across taking them out again. Eventually, they will stay down and have to leave the game. Once 5 people get taken out of the game....achievement unlocked.
