If you want to lower a player's Squad Status, but don't want him to get angry/unhappy with you, do the following:
Firstly, Put him on the Transfer Market.
After this, change his squad status to ''Backup'' or ''Hot Prospect'' (while still Transfer listed)
Wait 2 or 3 days. Come back and remove him from the transfer market. You can then give him a new status if you like, and he will be still Happy with his Role at the Club.
Note: This works with all players, even Superstars like Figo, Zidane.
If you want to manage an international team without earning it, go to Add Manager. Then choose a club to manage, click on Competitions from the menu bar at the left of the screen and go to International - World Rankings. Choose the nation, and then click on Take Control of Team.
If you have two players up front, the best two players to have are Henrik Larsson and Andriy Schevchenko. They are guaranteed to score every game, as long as you have a brilliant play maker like Zinedine Zidane.
As soon as you start a season, buy Cherno Samba who is 15 and plays for Millwall. If you play about 10 seasons he will become one of the best strikers. Also, Arjen Robben who is 17 from Groningen and Rafael Van Der Vaart who is 18 from Ajax are excellent prospects for the future.
When someone comes in with a bid for one of your players, Choose 'Exchange Player' and choose to exchange a player who is alot more expensive than your player. Then negotiate the deal. The other team will come back in about 2/3 days with a much higher offer which you can gladly accept.
