Football Manager 2008

Submitted by: Dare Devil

* Make a new user of the team you are about to play as in the match. 
* Select quick tactics. 
* For your opponent's team, set every one of their players in attack,
  then put an arrow from the goalkeeper to the striker. 
* If done correctly, you should win 10 - 1.

Recommended team:
Search for a team called Poli 21. They have lots of excellent players
who are very cheap, and they score quite a few goals. Also, try the 
following players.

- Kevin Doyle (Reading) 
- Robbie Keane (Tottenham) 
- Kasper Schemichael (Man City) 
- Elano (Man City) 

Try the following Hibernian squad:
- Steven Fletcher (quality striker scored 35 goals in 45 games)
- Fillip Morais (amazing attacking right, left, or center)
- Alan O'brien (good winger left)
- Lewis Stevenson (good left back or left center midfield)
- Merouanne Zemamma (great midfielder)
- David Murphy (quality left back)
- Chris Hogg (good center half) 

Easy wins:
Create a custom player and add them to your opponents team. Select "Quick 
Tactics". Set all of your opponent's players to attack. Place an arrow 
from the goalkeeper to the striker. You should win easily.

Submitted by: Covaci LIviu

GAbriel Torje(17)   - Poli Timisoara
NIcolas Millan(14)  - Colo colo
Tomassi Vailatti(21)- Livorno
Florin Costea(16)   - ''U,, Craiova

Mint young players:
- David amoo (liverpool) 
- Daniel sturridge (man city) 
- Febian brandy (man utd) 
- Goran slavkovski (inter) 
- Bojan (barca) 
- Sergio aguero-expensive but worth it (at madrid) 
- Jonathan/giovanni dos santos (barca) 
- Damien plessis (liverpool)

Great players for low league teams:
When starting a new season as a BSP league team. You can get great players good
enough to play in league one. All you have to do is go to player search, customise
the search putting the age at. At most 28 then select nationality then choose 
france the you will find people at between 22 to 28 who play for french lower league
teams and you can sign them for free without compensation. When offering contract 
offer 100 pounds more than they ask so you can beat competition from other clubs.
When choosing leagues you have to choose only the first french league not lower.

* If you're playing with some unkown-lower league team. 
* Set this tactic: mentality-attacking
* closing down-often
* passing-short
* Everything else mixed
* Before this buy some quality players who would join your team
  (exp.Josko Bilic,Itallo...)

Submitted by: lcarter

* Diego Buonanotte (needs time but gets very good)
* Rodrigo Fabri    (old ish but gets lots of goles)
* Rui Fonte        (young but good)

Changing Formation:
This works really well on the game day. If you go into the game with a formation and
you set your team talk, if you then change your formation before you kick-off then 
it confuses the opposition and you automatically get the upper hand on them. 

Easy Money:
To get easy money without starting a new game all you need to do is download the 
FMModifier 2.21 then search your team, change thier money, and press save and then
you have heaps of money.

Real Names and German National Team:
To get real players into the German national team and to get real club 
names for those clubs that have fake ones go to
C:\Program Files\Sports Interactive\Football Manager 2008\data\db\800\lnc

In that folder delete the Fake.Inc file. Make sure you make a back-up of 
it somewhere just incase though. Now when you start a new game you will 
have real players and real club names.

Easy goals from corners:
This cheat is really simple! All you have to do is have some1 with the highest 
corner attribute take the corners. then you on team instruction put the corners 
in the 6 yard box on both right and left. then take to players with the best 
headers in your team then go on player instruction of the 2 players then for 
corners put challenge GK.

Tthe trick i told u about is so simple. if u no dat deres a playa ure gonna want 
4 ure team, put dat league in at da beginnin so u can manage da team. 4 ure main 
team, just offa 0 and accept wid ova team, den u just gotta tie up da contract.

Keeping Possession:
To play possession football, often hard from a players perspective, it is a simple 
matter of tweaking your tactics.
Play a short passing game with a slower tempo and watch as your players consistently 
hit the target with their passes.
To add variety you can change the mentality from defensive to attacking. Defensive 
possession football will see your defenders playing with the ball alot and making 
occasional forays forward into space. Attacking possession football is much like 
Arsenals style of football with a consistent flow forward.
As your team gets more accustomed to possession football you can increase the tempo 
and watch as your team swiftly and accurately carve up the opposition.

Avoiding Work Permit Troubles:
There are three ways to get around the annoying inconveniences that are Work Permits. 
They are: 

1.Your club can have a feeder club from a European country that doesn't use the work
  permit rule, you can send the player out on loan to the club and they will gain 
  citizenship after a certain amount of years. The shortest time to gain citizenship
  in a country is 3 years, in Belgium and Poland. Pretty much all the other countries
  take 5 years, except for Spain, which takes 4 years.
2.You can leave the player in your reserves until he gains citizenship (which will 
  take 5 years).
3.A sneaky way of getting past the work permit problem is to offer the player another
  contract, as soon as they join you. About 60% of the time the player will be granted
  a work permit, even though they had only just been denied one. Sly, huh? Failing all
  that. Try and find foreign players who have a European nation as a second nationality.
  these players do not require work permits!

Finding Great Regens:
To maintain a high standard of quality players in your team as the years progress during 
the game it is necessary to scout and develop your own youth talent into the next 
generation of superstars.
To find regens (game spawned players to replace retired players) you must learn to scout 
effective and efficiently. First you must sign to your club some scouts with at least a 
17 rating in Judging Potential Ability and Judging Current Ability. Examples of such 
scouts are Wolfgang Dremmler and David Hamilton.
Once you have some good scouts go to the scout screen and assign your scouts to the various 
youth competitions (eg Under 20 World Cup and Under 18's Leagues) with maximum age set to 
under 20.
Now wait and watch as your scouts scour the globe for the best new talent. Once they bring 
back some player reports choose what players you think youll need or want in the future and
snap them up while they are young.

LLM Money Making:
In the Pre Season as smaller teams of any division you will always find you need to make 
some money to set yourself up for playing wages/making transfers/expanding stadium etc.
The best way to get money in these situations is to organise high profile friendlies in 
the pres season. By organising friendly leagues/cups/one off matches you can make anywhere
from 100k to 10mil pounds each pre season.

At the start of the game go to ghana and look for boetang who is a cm. very cheap but 
lots of clubs try to sign him, so b quick! also delgado for cruz azul very cheap buy. 
Billy sharp can b brilll 4 any prem team. any1 got any signings they cud recomend for 
a newly promoted prem team?

Sugar Daddy:
With this cheat, the clubs chairmen will now be a Sugar Daddy, and will continuelsy pump 
money into the clubs transfer budget. If you got to Editor, and click Clubs, you then should 
click your selected club. Then in the top left hand bar you want to click fiances and you 
will see a unticked button which is Sugar Daddy. If you are to click this then save, then 
load up that database and choose that team you clicked Sugar Daddy on. Your first transfer 
budget will be doubled, and every month you will make profits of 5ish million and will soon 
be unstopable.

when you install FM 2008 on ure PC, go onto start and programs, then find ure FM 2008 and 
there shud b a data editor there too. you can edit clubs and create players so u can customise 
ure favourite teams to be the best with the most money and best players. but if u create a team, 
when u choose leagues that u can manage in at the beginnin of a new game, u will not be able 
to manage in the country u put the new team in!

Submitted by: pardonmyfrench

I know how to solve the problem that u can't choose the country u put a self-manufactured team in. 
Here's the tip: When ur done creating, instead of placing ur creation in the league, u swap it 
with an existing one. In that way it won't, pardon my French,f#@k itself up. The Editor is a 
really handy tool. I put Solberg from Third Division in Norway, to the Tippeliga by swapping 
it with Rosenborg. Nice, huh?;)

Good Striker:
To get a good striker as man utd loan out FRAZIER CAMPBELL to WALSALL for a season or 2 when 
i did this he was scoring in every game and gettin player of the month frequently aswell. when 
he comes back he should be a good player to keep hold of. message me with what you think about 
this tip thanks.

Championship Tactic:
Submitted by: Cheatsbook
Here is a good tactic for Hull City, i was 24th in the Championship and with this tactic 
i got 8th in my first season.


-Have the Am with arrows going to Dmc.
-Have the 2 cm going to the Amc.
-Have the Side mids going up like the Cm's.

Attacking Instructions:
-Play Attacking
-Have Lots Of Freedom
-Have Short Passing
-Time Waste Often

Just do what it says there it dosent matter how attacking you need to go. 
Hope this Helps people who are struggling in the Championship.

Fan Days:
Although you do not choose when you get a fan day it can benifit you a lot.
What it is used for is smaller club who want to expand their support. They will let 
people come in and watch a game of football for free therefore hoping they will enjoy
it and pay to come back and see the team again. Make sure you put up a good 
performance and an entertaining match or they will not want to come back and it 
would end up being a waste of time.

Get new quality youth players out of nowhere!! (depending your current squad status)
organize a friendly match with your reserves.
move most of your players to reserve.just left behind some of your top quality 
players (make them below 11). and let your assistant play the match.after the match you
will find some quality youth players out of nowhere playing for your team. the best 
thing is that you can offer them a eh?

Fix National Teams:
Due to licensing some National Teams don't have proper players (Germany for example)
To get rid of this go to:
"C:/Program Files/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2008/data/db/800/lnc/all" 
once there copy the file entitled "fake.lnc" (You may wish to put it in a safe place 
as backup if needed) then delete the file "fake.lnc" and when you start a new game 
the countries effected will have the proper squad. All this file does it put a "mask"
on the national teams effected and once you remove it will get rid of the mask.

Money Earner:
A nice way to earn some money for your very poor lower league club.
Arrange fixtures for the reserve and youth teams against other high profile reserve 
and youth teams. For some reason a friendly against Barcelona B brings in the same 
amount of money as a friendly against Barcelona A would and if you use your Reserve
team the opposition will not request a feee for their participation.
This was especially useful in the Blue Square South with Bognor Regis. Neither the 
reserves nor the youth teams played in a league and were therefore free to play 
friendlies all season. 
I tried to organise friendly leagues as these bring in the most money and always invited
the reserve or youth teams of the clubs that appeared on the 'major clubs' pages. Within
a season I had a bank balance of £4'000'000 and started the next season with a transfer 
budget of £1.2 million.

Best Formation:
I found with liverpool the best formation is 2-1-4-3 with renia in goal, caragher and terry 
in defence, fabregas in mid, ronaldo left flank and messi right, gerrard and ribery in centre
and then torres, villa and babel up front. so it looks like this


To sign these players just edit it on editor because some are hard to sign but any player who 
specialises in the positions is good. Just as long as the team plays attacking football, and 
is strong so put empahisis on weight training.

brilliant Young players i havnt heard mentiond alot, some wonderkids, some unstopable kids:

oh my god there is this wicked player arda he is called and he plays for turkey he is a 
left winger and scores for me in every single match nearly and also he is only 13m so buy 
him and u will see wat he is like.

Recommened Player:
One player that is definately worth signing is Marcelo of Real Madrid.
Has get out clause set at £5.5million and is worth every penny.
I am in my 3rd season with liverpool and he is averaging 8.08 and is worth £18million.

Submitted by: crayz E tom

If u use the editor and choose a team to edit, u obviously wnt sum gud playas. if u go on 
this website and find them u may think u have all the best playas, but some time u dont!
when you get the playa, look at his future potential, if its really near to 200 then they 
are good. but you can get playas that are in the minus's, if you get a playa that is -10 
they can be really really good, but only if they have a high current potential.

FREE player purchasing:
If you want easy player transfers, just Add a New User and be the manager of the club you 
want to obtain the player from. Step 2 is to put the player on transfer, keeping in mind 
to change it after you accept your original team's bid, otherwise your screen will be 
filled with bids from other clubs. All you have to do then, is make a 0 pound bid of the
player and accept it on the other side. Next comes the task of the player's agreement, 
you have to be a little patient in this case and really do everything to tick the player
off, like setting him to "Unwanted By the Club," or chucking him into the reserves squad,
or making his team lose by giving awful team talk. It doesn't take too long before the 
player will be begging on his knees to be transferred. I got Kaka, Silva, Rooney, Tevez, 
Ronaldhino, Deco, Cole, Ferdinand, and the list goes on, ALL playing in my Liverpool team.

here a few players u can buy for league 1 teams:
aaron mclean (40 goals in 50 games)
loan toni kroos great goalscorer and assister
figueroa (36 goals in 45 games)

Easy non editor money and get rid of player:
You first get your club and find a player you want to get rid of (I use useless youth 
players for this). then you make a new manager and have him as a manager of a rich club
(e.g. UK big 4, Madrid, Barcelona, look on the rich clubs list), you set your transfer 
budget as the highest possible, transfer wages to transfer cash, and buy your naff player
for all of your transfer bill. Then offer the player the best contract possible and they 
will sign and your club will be richer, then resign and repeat with another team.

For those who wanna play a long game (10-20 years) at the same club. 1st of all, 
some players you might be interested other than fabregas, kaka and others how are tought 

-martial yao-asec
-jose san roman- river
-bruno formigoni
-rafael foster
-sergio mota
-toto tamuz, dor malul(israel)
-maximiliano morales
-anton sosnin-zenith
-mika aaritalo, patrick lomski(finland)
-a young 17 yrs old from leceiter wich i can't remember his name right now
-torje(poli timisoara)
-pulhac(sometimes it becomes one of the greatest dl in world)
-Anton putilo(putsilo), actually the name is "putsila"
-cristian nazarith, yessu cabrera, cesar lindado- colombia
-jhon fleck-rangers
-eros corradini(he grows slow but sometimes becomes world-class)
-vantagiatto-rimini(he doesn't wanna leave until winter tranfer window but he's a great player)
-sotiris ninis(not a great profile but actually plays like messi in real life)
-search also for youngsters in france and spain(a lot of hot prospects)

Regens apear in the games almost every month(especially june, july, august, december and january)
You actually can see all that players if you serch "backspace" in the "search box" up right. The 
newest regens are at the bottom always right before the countries.
It takes time to see all ( especially because a lot of regens are from Haiti, bermuda, etc) but 
is worth it. Than, if you like a player profile scout it (is better if your scout has at least 
15 on JPP). Usually the player is rated by a star but has a potencial of 5 or more!(WORLD-CLASS)
(NOTE: If you manage a small team try to sign only from good above) the decent ones are often 

-You save a lot of time if you only search for: brazilians, spanish, england, france, holland,
italy, argentina and germany.
But sometimes i've founded really good players even from "sao-tome&principe" so.... 

2 tactics that really work!:
Submitted by: Bart Arends

If you play against a stronger team then play like this:

-LB -- CD----CD----RB-

Or when you want to be the more attacking team (when you are the favorite)

-LB -- CD----CD----RB-

But place a defensive midfielder at the place of the center one of the center midfielders (CM).

Always play with an attacking mindset.
With most teams you will score the most goals of the whole league.
Good luck!

Easy Money:
Submitted by: Daehmonyak

Create a new user (in preference, pick up a rich team like Barcelona, Chelsea, etc), then 
with this user you can buy your own players. Just make sure you always offer a value lower 
than the player's termination fine (otherwise you won't have your offer acceptable - it 
will indicate "team X accepted the offer" but no negotiation will follow). Usually, your 
team's president will manage the negotiation (if not, accept it manually).

Buy cheaper players:
Same deal: create a new user - this time, pick up the team who owns the player you want. 
With your own user, offer $0 (or more - really, who would?) for the player, and accept 
with the other user. Notice that some players may not be interested in playing for your 
team (honest, I've tried to contract Adriano for my ADAP Galo Maring - a small, almost 
unknown brazilian team - offering R$700.000 per week, and he refused).

Best player to sign: 
Submitted by: graham patchett

David Villa
Fernando Torres
Sergio Aguero
Iker Casillas
Sergio Ramos

Player to buy:
Submitted by: doddski

People say sergio aguero is the best player on the game...not a chance. Look for a player 
called Pandev. WORLD CLASS PLAYER scored 54 goals in one season for my newcastle team in 
the first season and 58 in the second. Costs abit of money but worth it. Aguero in my reserves.

Lower League Clubs:
Submitted by: Chris

Look up the Jamaican League, all their players have low wages and are very good for lower 
league teams.

Checklist for Starting at a new club:
1.Fire your old assistant manager and get the best one you can get.
  (Do this by going to search on the tree menu then click staff)
2.Make a plan on where you want to come in the season and in the next three seasons.
3.Decide who you are going to release and your main transfer targets for that season.
4.Try and get the teams morale up and work on that.

The man who come from bulgaria (i forgot the club) that have no fantastic skills, but belief me,
