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!
If you are looking for some kits to download on Football Manager 2008 then take a look in this websiteHere
These are the best kits I have seen and very well detailed.
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.
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
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. I have noticed this when I tried it.
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.
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.
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.
If you want to give your players the best Current Ability and Potential Ability to make them the best players on the game. Download FM Modifier from http://www.fmscout.com/page.php?al=fm_modifier_fm2008
. You need to load the game ( while you are playing it ) and edit it.
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.
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 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.

Firstly download this file; http://files.filefront.com/panelsfmfrar/;8835711;/fileinfo.html
and place it into C> Program Files > SI > FM08 > Data and replace.
Once you have done this upload the game and then go to options and un tick skin cache and reload skin, now when you start the game you have the option of playing the game on a Huge Database =]
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 mkaing 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.
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.
I have been in Chelsea for 5 seasons now..I won 5 the premiership 5 times in a row..You wanna know how?? Pick this players..
Defender Right:Micah Richards/Bosingwa
Defender Center:John Terry/Mamadou Sakho
Defender Left:Ashley Cole/Armand Traore
Midfield Center:Frank Lampard/Michael Essien/Toni Kroos
Winger Right:Lionel Messi/Salomon Kalou/Shaun Wright Philips
Winger Left:Luka Modric/Joe Cole/Arjen Robben
Good Luck..!! You will Have 80% of winning the premiership..

If you want the best Facepack I suggest this Polaroid one. It has all the big Leagues and a lot of the obscure league as well.
All you have to do is add another manager to the club of the player you want to sign, then put the player on the transfer list, move to reserves and offer mutual consent and with your original manager make an offer of 0 and then accept and he should sign.

What is it a here you say?
Well it is a specialised training schedule for each of the positions that has been made for you to get maximum improvement from your players.
It can be found Here
Tutoring young players is one of the most undervalued and misinformed features of the game. Using tutoring effectively can develop young players at faster rates and give them preferred moves they would otherwise not have.
To ensure you get the best out of tutoring, check a players Coach Report for any tutoring recommendations (eg. Player X would benefit from being tutored by Player A) and follow those hints, also check personalities, nationalties and position. If players play in different position the tutoring is useless and sometimes highly detrimental, if the players have different personalities or nationalites (speak different languages) then the benefits of th tutoring will be severely decreased.
Lastly the major aspect of tutoring is what you say when you start the tutoring. The 3 options given range from "ideal role model" which alots the most time for tutoring, "would benefit form adopting style" is the medium time option, and finally "can learn from" is the shortest time. By setting different times you can affect the amount of moves learnt, the skill increase, and by using shorter times the amount of variety in tutoring players.

Go into the FM 2008 data editor (which should be found in your FM 2008 install directory) and load up either the 'default' or '8.0.2 Update' database. Now go to the Stadium section on the left hand side. Now in the search bar type 'Saddam Hussein'.
Weird or what?

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.
but i think that for this cheat to work you would need the 8.0.2 patch
To sign KAKA from AC Milan, you need to make a at either his asking price or slighly above.
In addition, you will need to put in additional clauses of circa £25 - £30million over 24 months
9 times out of 10, Milan will accept. You will then need to offer KAKA the most in wages that your board will permit. A signing on fee of £5.5million and Appearance and Goal Bonuses of circa £25k
Wait and he should agree to join.
I have been Liverpool and everytime he has signed even though he isn't shortlisted in player search.
Need to make sure that you have enough funds though. Can do this in the editor
Let me know if it works?
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.
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 ahve real players and real club names.
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
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.
