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!

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. I have noticed this when I tried it.

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.

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.

great players for low league teams(BSP)

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

Guarenteed 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.

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 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.

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.

Tutoring

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.

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.

but i think that for this cheat to work you would need the 8.0.2 patch

How to sign KAKA!!!

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?

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.
