Letting Assistant Run Friendlies:
I am one for not wanting to do friendlies because it is time consuming, however
I think they are important for match fitness. What I do is go onto "Manager" -
"Your Team Name" - "Game Settings", then there will be an option of "Assisant
takes control of friendly matches". If you tick that then you will still play
the friendlies, it just won't be as time consuming so your players can get mach
fitness and it will only take you half the time.
Stopping Press Conferences:
Some people I have seen want to get rid of press conferences. What you do for this
is go onto "Manager" - "Your team name" - "Team Settings" - from there you will see
at the top "Let Assistant Manager take care of press conferences", tick that and
ten you will not be asked to attend any more press conferences.

Easy Cash With Man United:
If you have just started with Man United, and noticed you are a little low in terms
of cash. Then offer Darren Fletcher to all clubs, Manchester City will usually come
back with a bid in the region of £40-50 Million, and Fletcher is also willing to
leave. (Works on 9.1.0 Patch.)
Basically if you're a good team there are a lot of good out of contracts. Like Edgar
Davids, Stefano Fiore etc. But further along in the game people get released. For
instance in one of my games Stephen Carr and Ronaldo were released. check this out for
yourself if you need good players for cheap.
I was searching through the russian U21, when i found the next arshavin, Alan Dzagoev.
He is a very good player for a mid table prem team like tottenham, aston villa. He is
18, plays centre mid and you can get him for between 4.4mil - 5 mill, a bargain.
Basicly really good players:
Portsmouth - Lassana Diarra-DM-4-5mil great all round player
Fiorentina - stevan Jovetic-AML-15-61mil Great potential
Zenit St Petersberg - Arshavin-AMC- 10-12mil obvious one
Shakter- Fernandinho - AMC-10-11mil good midfielder
Ragers - John Fleck-AMC-4-5mil Great potential
Inter Milan- Balotelli - AMR/ST 10-12mil great potential but brilliant now
Sampdoria - vincenzo Fiorrilo-GK-2-3mil
Fc Bayern - Toni Kroos-AMC- 10mil.
Unlockables: SI developers In Game:
All developers from the Sports Interactive team have added themselves into the
game as Regenerated players, some of them having comical personalitys. To find
all of these, simply type "faceinthegame" into the search box, without the quote
Loads of money without editor:
Both methods require you to take control of a rich club e.g. Man City whilst still
being in control of your own club.
The first method requires you to have a player you can lose for a few days. As Man
City, go to your club's reserve team and make a bid to loan a player, but pay them
all of your transfer budget. If they are a fringe player or you are a small club
they will accept and you will get the money. Then as Man City you terminate the
player's loan straight away.
If you want to get rid of a player instead then just buy the player rather than
loaning them but the money won't come instantly if you arent in a transfer window.
I bought a player called Mario Balotelli, and he was back-up to Agbonlahor and Sergio
Aguero but the Agbonlahor got injured so i put him in. He then scored a hat-trick two
games in a row against Liverpool and Man City so I've been playing him ever since.
He scored a total of 29 goals in roughly 31 games. He also got 14 assists and an
average rating of 8.26.
Really good player:
Search for "Simon Vukcevic" his stats are really high. Hes only worth 3million.
Type in juan manuel vargas in the search engine. buy him at the end of the season,
i bought him for 12.75 million with newcastle and he was joint top goalscorer with
Bojan he is only a midfielder.
Good Young Players:
Submitted by: Shaun
In my second season and a scout found a 18 year old defender form the USA u21s looked
at the players and found a player called fitzgerald ace defender bought him for 3mil
and havent looked back. Also look for a player called Bruins from holland, he a amc
but also a free kick wizard.
Darren Fletcher Bug:
If you want lots of money when playing as Manchester United, offer Darren Fletcher
for £60M and Manchester City will make a offer of the same price. Also works with other
players and most teams, but with less extravagant sums.

A great player to sign for any championship side is marek matejovsky, you can buy him
for between 2 and 3 mill and he always impresses which ever side you buy him for!.
Use the following trick to make money as well as develop players. First, put a player
on the Transfer List that CPU's teams are interested in. When they make an offer,
reduce it to £0, then put a buy back clause of £1,000. Scroll down and enter a clause
"After League Appearance - 1" then increase that to the amount that they offered. Once
the player makes his debut for the team, you will get the money and can then buy him
back for £1,000. Note: This is especially useful for youth players, as it allows you
to earn money from them while being able to get them when they develop for almost
nothing and also saves the wages.
* Select "Manager" and choose your team. Select "Game Settings", then set "Assistant
takes control of friendly matches" to on. You will still play friendly matches, but
will save time and still allow your players can get match fitness.
* Select "Manager" and choose your team. Select "Team Settings", then set "Let Assistant
Manager take care of press conferences" to on.

Young and talented players, plus more cash!:
Submitted by: Xx Navek xX
Well, i am here to speak about good young players, and how to get easy cash. Well i think
ismael miller who plays for west brom, he is young and gets goals plus he is very cheap!
bojan for barcelona, obviously its literally impossible to get this guy unless you put him
on the transfer list and not needed by the club. then swap bojan for nothing to the team
Note: bojan becomes one of the best players on the game after a various amount of time.
and also: caicedo for man city! only 19 years old. he is very young and same as miller he
gets goals aswell.
To get cash: Very simple, you buy a player for how much you want e.g:get a new user as
man city, while being your team sell a reserve team player for how much you want...
and well its as simple as that. hope ive helped thanks navs.

A really good attacking player is Marquinhos a brazilian as he has amazing attributes
and is only about 20. You can get him from about 10 million.
Submitted by: joe
If you want a really good striker that is quite cheap i recommend Vagner Love from CSKA
Moscow, he will get you 25 - 30 every season and is only 24 years old, also zhirkov is
a top left attacking midfielder also from CSKA.
Very Good Cheap Players:
Enio (brazillian guy plays in asia).
Dimitar Makriev, Denis Alibec, Evseev, Coeff.
Ochirosii, Fleck, Kadlec (16yr old st), Molinaro.
Zebina, Barboiana, Leonardo (winger listed at ajax).
juan manuel torres, beevers, rajtoral.
Buy players easily:
If you want to buy a player, but the club are not selling him (for example, Cristiano
Ronaldo), you can buy him for free. To do this, go to "Options" in the taskbar, then
select "New User"". Name your manager, select the club that the player you want plays
for, submit the new user, read all messages in your inbox as usual. You must select
the transfer budget for the season. Change back to your main user (go to "Manager" in
the taskbar, change user, then choose your main user), then place a bid on the player
that you want for ?0, press "Continue", and it should display a message in your inbox
stating that the player you want has been offered for by your club. Accept this.
Note: If this has been rejected, offer the player that you want to buy to clubs for
?100 million and make sure you include all human clubs. After you have offered him
to clubs, bid for the player again and it should say that a player has been offered
for rather than automatically rejecting the offer. Then, press "Continue" again and
it should give you permission to offer a contract to the player that you want.
Note: He may not want to come if it is someone like Lionel Messi. After you have
completed the offer and the player you want is playing for your club, retire from
football on your other user (select "Manger" in the taskbar, choose "Options" and
As Manchester City, go to your club's reserve team and make a bid to loan a player.
However, pay them all of your transfer budget. If they are a fringe player or you
are a small club, they will accept and you will get the money. Then as Manchester
City, immediately terminate the player's loan. If you want to get rid of a player
instead, just buy the player rather than loaning them. However the money will not
return instantly if you are not in a transfer window.
When starting with Manchester United, you can get easy money by offering Darren
Fletcher to all clubs. Manchester City will usually come back with a bid of about
?40 to ?50 million.
Ownage without cheating!:

Go on a good player you want to sign, and put the upfront fee as 0. Then go on "clauses"
and add a after appearances clause of after 50 apps 40 mil. and do this with after league
goals and after international app's. Then sell the player before the clauses come in sell
the player. Dont thank me, im already the don.

First start offering best players to clubs for free then when loads of clubs make
a bid still leave it as free but change the clauses how you want it.

Extremely good signings:
Submitted by: Tyler
As Man City, with the 9.3.0 patch on, you will have a fair few good players already
there plus a mega money amount.
Best three signings I made were;
Pato - AC Milan wonderkid, let him go for about 34.5 mil
Gareth Barry - Villa let him go for about 23.5 mil
Naldo - Can't remember the club, but I got him for about 12 mil and he is
excellent. Scores goals and barely concedes any. Best buy so far.
