well, I really love Ultimate 11! It was one of the first mvs I got, luckily it's dirt cheap compared to the aes version. You can't beat the feeling of charging up your power bar and shooting a ball that knocks down the goal keeper. Solid top 10 in my favourite neo games, maybe even top 5!

also super sidekick 1 and soccer brawl are amazing

That's actually really accurate. :lol:

Not an arcade game but my absolute favorite all time arcade-like soccer game is Super Mario Strikers for the GameCube. It's a blast for multi-plyaer and plays well on a cab. With Dolphin emulation it looks even better than the original. I like it so much I'm in the midst of building a dedicated mini-cab for it.

I think Virtua Striker 4 is probably the best arcade footy game..

Konami did release PES 2014 in Japan in the arcades.

IMHO, The Virtua Striker saga is the top for "real" soccer simulation. VS4 is far the best, with stunning graphics, analogue sticks and real-time tactic change buttons.
Then there are "arcade" soccer games, like Football Champ and Super Sidekicks, that have a completely different gameplay. I prefer these ones :-)

Don't forget Mexico '86 ;)
