i think if white plays 4. Ng5, black just plays 4. ... d5 and i dont think that is good for white, however white can try the fried liver attack.....

And i think after 4. Nc3 Nxe4 5. Nxe4 d5 6. Bxd5 Qxd5 7. Nc3 white has a betterposition....

I think Fischer in MSMG states that 4.Ng5 is best, althogh players like Adams do well with 4.d3

Agree with Markovich.
I too used to play this with play until I found out that no one would play 4.d4 or 4.Ng5 against me. They simply played 4.d3 followed by some boring stuff with c2-c3. In the end I simply got tired of these people just sitting there and waiting for me to seldestruct. Which I never did, by the way, but winning is just as difficult as losing in this line.
So I would say that 4.d3 may be the best move if you suspect that Black is an impatient attacking type player who tends to get into time-trouble or go for incorrect flank attacks.

I do think that 4. Ng5 is objectively best.   It turns over the initiative to Black, but it also wins a pawn.  I play the Black side of this all the time, but the fact is, the burden of proof is on Black.

II 4.Nc3 Nxe4 and if anyone is better, then Black.

Agree with II, but not with I. 4 d3 is just boring.
  

If nothing else works, a total pig-headed unwillingness to look facts in the face will see us through.

The book had the effect good books usually have: it made the stupids more stupid, the intelligent more intelligent and the other thousands of readers remained unchanged.

well, i was wondering why cant you play 4. Nc3 (after 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3 Nc6 3. Bc4 Nf6), because i read all the time that 4. d4 is better
