Choosing a League
At the beginning of Championship Manager 2001/02, you will have a choice
of  26 leagues. Depending on your system specifications, you will be able
to select from 1 to 26 to play simultaneously. The chart below shows how
many leagues you can play at one time on your computer.

*Background Leagues count as 1/2 Leagues

Foreground/Background Leagues
Foreground Leagues are leagues that you wish to begin management in. If you
wish to manage Manchester United, you must have England Selected as a
Foreground League.

Background Leagues are leagues that you do not wish to manage in straight away,
but may want to manage in in the future. Only add a league as a background
league if your memory is very high and you will want to manage in said league.
Adding unneeded leagues as background leagues only wastes precious memory.

Initialising Game
After you have selected your leagues, the game will load all it's required
stats. This may take a while depending on your processor, so be patient.
On my old 166, Initialising used to take around 45 minutes, but only takes
3 or 4 on my new 1.8GHz PC. Go read a book or watch TV if you're computer is
pretty old.

Add Manager
When your game has finally loaded, you will come to the Add Manager screen.
This is where you select the club you wish to take to success(or maybe to
relegate, if you have a personal vendetta against the club). Who you
manage is up to you, but in my League Guide section(Section iii), I will
tell you who are easy teams to manage, and which teams provide a challenge,
if you are up to it. To manage a club, click on their name, check out their
players if you wish, and finally click 'Take Control' to install yourself
as the new Guus Hiddink.

What next....
You can add more managers if you want, or you can continue with the game.
Once you've decided to continue, you'll be in the big bad world of football
management. If you're stuck, and need help, read the manual that comes with
the game.

Search Field: i-b

You can play Championship Manager in one of ten languages:
Danish, Dutch, English, French, German, Italian, Norwegian, Portuguese,
Spanish, or Swedish. Select the language which is your native tongue.
(Or if you want to use Championship Manager to progress your linguistics,
choose a language that's not your own, and try to figure out what's going
on!) Unfortunately, Gaeilge is not featured in CM 01/02, maybe it might be
in a future version, who knows?

Here you select the currency you will use in Championship Manager. There
are a variety of currencies ranging from the old Irish Punt to the Dollar.
Don't worry Euroites, the Euro is included too. Although, it's just
represented by an 'E' rather than the Euro symbol. And remember, The change
is in your pocket! (And the facts are in your Euro handbook)

Select the font you wish to use. NOTE: you cannot add your own fonts,
just select the in-game ones. Wingdings would be to hard to understand
when playing CM.

Wages can be shown in 3 seperate ways in CM - Weekly, Monthly, or Yearly.
Select the system you are most used to. NOTE: Although wages can be
shown as yearly, they are still payed out every week.

Screen Mode
You can select Full Screen or Window. Full screen is quicker, but if you wish
to do other things while playing CM, you can use a windowed version.

Background Changes
This option selects whether the in-game picture changes or not. If you have a
slow computer, I would recommend this option to be turned off.

On or Off - I have this turned off as the only sounds are the crowd chants
during the matches. I prefer to listen to my mp3s instead.

This option selects how many players your game contains.
Minimum means just important players and players in your league are selected.
Normal means all major players and lague players.
Maximum means almost everyone.
Minimum is recommended for slower computers.

Matches Stored
This is how many matches are stored in the match database, for you to look
back at during the game. Choose 5000 if you have a slow computer.

The game can automatically save if you want it to. This feature only
really helps if you've got a buggy computer, as it can become very

Save Compressed
Your save files are compressed which takes less disk space, but more
time to save.

Save Safely
Always have this on, as it checks to see if you have enough HD space
before saving.

Flashing Text
Exactly what it says on the tin. All that flashes is your News and your
next Fixture on matchday.

Background Matches
If Normal or On, you can check the latest scores in the other matches
while playing your own. If this is off, you can't.

Print To
Selects what the game prints to when you select the Print option in the
game. You can select whether tha game prints to a TXT file, the printer,
or both.

Search Field: ii-a

After you select your team, the Chairman and/or Board of Directors
will set you a goal for the upcoming season. This is what they
expect from you. If you don't achieve their goal, you could be
facing some time on Unemployment Benefit. But if you're lucky,
they might not sack you even if you don't achieve the goal.

At the end of each month, your Directors will assess your
position at the club. If they tell you that they are "dissapointed
with your role as manager", your head might be next on the excutioner's

The Club Expectations are, as follows:

Serious Championship Challenge
You have to finish 1st at the end of the season. Nothing more,
nothing less.

Expect Continental Qualification
You have to get into a Continental competition, any competition
will do(with the exception of the Super Cup and Intertoto Cup).
The board don't care how you do it, but get it done!

Expect Promotion
You have to get your club up to the next footballing level,
possibly without the use of play-offs.

Expect Play-Offs
Your club needs to be in the Play-Offs at the end of the season.
You don't necessarily need to win the Play-offs, just be in them.

Respectable League Position
Your club should be in the top half of your league, come closing
day - the higher the better!

Stay Clear of Relegation
Exactly what it says on the tin. Do not get relegated, but you
better not be just on the edge of the Relegation Zone, or your
job could be in jeopardy(And I don't mean the TV show).

Battle Bravely Against Relegation
Try not to be relegated, but if it happens, it happens. It's not
your fault you're managing a team of no-hopers.

Improve Club Squad
Do whatever you like. Any result will satisfy the Directors(except
getting no points, or close to it).

Searching for Players
There are two ways you can look for players, by going through
tonnes of information i.e. trawling through Teams/Nations; or
the easy way - use the Player Search & Scouts. These can be found
in the main menu, by clicking on your name.

Player Search
From here you can search from all the players in your region,
and all reputable players. You can also use the Filter to
block out players you don't want(i.e foreign players, expensive
players, goalkeepers, whatever...), or look for players with
certain stats(e.g. Tackling 20, Dribbling 15, etc.). Once
you've filtered out all unwanted players, you can click on
the the names of the players to see their info. If you
want to buy/loan a player, click Action in the corner of
the screen, then click on your preferred action.

You can assign your scouts certain tasks, so they find the correct
players for you. You can select to scout a team, a country, a region,
a competition, or to scout your next opposition. After the scout has
completed his task, you will be presented with the list of players he
has found. Then you select the new "Damien Duff".

Bidding for a Player
When you've found the player you want, and clicked "Bid", you will
have to compose your bid. On this screen you will find the player's
current valuation, as well as other options. If the player is on
the Transfer List, just bid his valuation and it will be accepted,
but if not, you will have to make a bid higher than the valuation.
You can pay in instalments, add a sell-on clause, or pay a fee
after a certain number of appearances. See the manual for more info.

Offering a Contract
When the club accepts the offer, you will be given the option of
offering a contract. Firstly, you will have to select the player's
Squad Status. Only give the greatest players "Indispensable" or
you will be regretting it later. If the player doesn't want the
status you've offered him, he will say so on the wages screen,
and you'll have to give him more money to entice him to come.
On the wages screen, you can select how much the player gets paid,
his signing-on fee, his contract length, and any clauses and bonuses.
NOTE: He will have to agree with the contract you offer him, or else
he won't join your club.

Description:     The only 3-5-2 formation I have played
                 against since starting this guide, so I
                 will post more info once I have something
                 to compare against. To effectively counter
                 this, have a 5-man defence to stop the
                 movement of the forwards.

Counter Attack:  No
Men Behind Ball: No                       1

Description:     This is your basic 4-4-2 formation.
                 There wingers run forward when
                 attacking. Simple enough formation.
                 No real vulnerabilites except lack
                 of flair.

Description:     The Wingbacks run forward in this formation
                 leaving the flanks open to quick counter

Mentality:       Attacking           ^  9   T   ^

Description:     This is one of the most attacking basic
                 4-4-2 formations. Strong wingbacks and
                 wide midfielders can close this formation
                 down easily.

Counter Attack:  No

Description:     The most unique 4-4-2 variant. This is
                 similar to the formations of many top
                 European sides with a forward dropping
                 off the main striker. Close it down
                 the same way you would close down the
                 default 4-4-2.

Counter Attack:  No
Men Behind Ball: No                       1

Description:     With a good central midefielder(the number 8),
                 the computer can use this to great effect.
                 Without, this formation is nothing. A strong
                 DMC can block the runs of the #8, thus stopping
                 this formation.

4-4-2 Push

Counter Attack:  No
Men Behind Ball: No                       1

Description:     This tactic is very similar to the basic 4-4-2
                 formation, except with lighter challenges. A
                 worse formation that the basic 4-4-2.

4-4-2 Wide
Mentality:       Normal                 9   T
Passing Style:   Short               ^          ^

Counter Attack:  No
Men Behind Ball: No                       1

Description:     Again, similar to the basic 4-4-2. The short
                 passing makes this a very quick formation.
                 Any good formation with a DMC should be able to
                 stop this formation.

This scetion deals with cheating, becuase at one time or another
we all cheat. And if you're easily tempted, read on....
(All these are discovered by me unless stated)

Getting more money
In order to get more money for your poor team, add a manager to
the richest team(s) in any of the leagues you are playing in.
For a list of the richest teams, see section 3 of this guide.
Put one of your unwanted players on the transfer market, and
triple his asking price. Then come in with a bid of double that
with the other team. If this bid is not too outrageous for that
player, the board won't block it, and you'll get loads of money
for your crap player. Repeat over and over again.

Getting better players
Add a manager to a pretty good team, and put their best reserves/
old players on the transfer list. Discipline them a few times until
the feel they are being victimised/forced out of the club. Bid for
one of your proper teams crappy players, and exchange a good player
for that player. Voilá, your squad has improved. NOTE: Some players
wont come to your club, no matter how much the other manager abuses

Winning every game
The day after each game, add a manager for the next team you are
playing. Switch your formation to the Sarxos' patented All-out-crap

           ST ST ST ST ST
           AM AM AM AM AM

There is no goalie, but the game thinks the MC is the goalie. Play 
a striker in goal, and play as many goalies outfield as possible. Try 
to fill the remaining team places with Greyed-out(imaginary) players, 
anyone with an orange injury/low fitness, or your worst players. When a 
player gets injured during the match, don't bother replacing him. You 
should win the game by 17 or more goals. After the game, retire with the
losing manager, wait a day, and add a new manager. Luckily in CM01/02,
there is no max number of managers(like in CM97/98), and you can do
this forever, and win everything(even the Champions League, if you
get drawn against teams you can manage).

Lower Players' Status without lowering Morale
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.

Sell players for more money
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.

there will be something in this scetion in the next update. Right?

Use your Scouts
Scouts are one of the most underused features by many CM players.
At the beginning of the game, send out your scouts to various
regions to find underrated talent. You can also send out
scouts to look for Promising Players. After a few weeks your
scouts will come back with info on all the players they looked
at. Don't worry, most of them will be totally useless, but
if your scouts are good at judging ability and potential,
they will have surely found two or three good if not great
players. After you have shortlisted(or bidded for) these players,
send your scouts off again to look for more players. You can also
get your scouts to search a specific country or team.

Scout Next Opposition
Always have one of your scouts set to "Scout Next Opposition".
This will help you see who is a threat to your team, which
formation the team is likely to use. And unlisted in the game
manual, if you click on the team name in the news article,
you can see what ratings your scout gave each of their players.
Sometimes, the scout will list the weaknesses of the other team.
The scout will also say what he thinks of this team compared to
yours - this is very helpful, as you can find where the other
teams' weaknesses are, and with the help of this guide(i.e the
Tactics section), you can use these to your advantage.

Offering Trials to Nobodies
*Used when you have the Fog of War on*
This is a great strategy if you are managing a lower division
side. Go to Find - Player on the main menu, and type in "No Club",
exactly as I have typed(with the exception of the quotes, obviously).
You will get over 200 pages with the maximum database on. Now offer
one week trials to as many of these players as will fit in your
squad. Alot of them will accept, and if they're no good, it doesn't
matter, coz they'll be gone in a week. If the players are any good,
offer them a contract. After the week's trial is over, do it again.
NOTE: If there is a squad maximum foreign player limit in your
country, try not to offer trials to too many foreigners or you will
not be allowed to buy other foreigners.

Finding great Nobodies
*Used with Fog of War off*
This strategy is almost the same as the last strategy. Search for
"No Club" players again, but this time you can see whether they are
any good or not, so once you've found a good player, offer him a
contract. Simple, but very effective.

This section is for all questions about ChampMan. Unlike the other
sections, it contains its own Table of Contents to help you find
the question you're looking for. If you have a question that is not
listed here, don't hesitate to post it on my message boards.

ix-a) What is the WWW2 tactic?
  -b) How do I get a question to appear here?/Answer my question...

Question 1
Search Field: ix-a

What is the WWW2 tactic that everyone on the net seems to talk about?
I can't find it anyhwhere in the game?

The WWW2 tactic is widely used by bad managers around the world. It is
supposedly the best tactic in the game. You have to download it from
the internet. But if you use it, it will surely take some of the fun
from the game.

Question 2
Search Field: ix-b

How do I get a question to appear here?

Post it on my board!!!! It will be answered on the board, and if it
is helpful to others, it will be posted in the next update.

Note: Do not tell me of your achievements, these are here to show you that
I know what I'm talking about when I'm talking CM. Anything below semi-finals
or 2nd place is not listed. Also, I did not cheat in any of these games. I
did it fairly, cheating is only fun once, then it gets boring.
