Championship Manager 01/02 Hints for PC
Great players for climbing up the league with minnows, some of them will be priced out by wages initially but a good squad clear out and a promotion should see you right with most of the below:
GK - Hugo pinheiro from marinhese (50k)
DC - Josetxo, Helder Rosario (free),
Patrick Eriksson-olsson from djurgarden (50k, quality after half a season)
DMC - Kevin Hunt from bohemians (40k)
Jamie Victory and Mike Duff (30k each both from cheltenham)
Marek szmid (right winger but play him in Centre mid and he bags 20-40 assists a season, he's on a free)
MC - Alex Iglesias, (Free)
Steve Housham (barrow AFC, 10 k, turns into a cheap viera after 5 seasons, consistently quality enforcer a must buy!)
AM- Scott Huckerby (woking, 75k)
David collins (10k, radcliffe)
CF- michael dunwell (50/100k, bishops auckland) prolific, continuously improves and is capped for ENG after 5/6 seasons, don't be impatient as he is a slow developer. Try retraining from a striker to a forward and play him behind the striker and he is even better
Joao Paiva (free)
To Madeira (50k gouvia)
Assemble this squad with a few of your own, with formation
DC DC (man marking)
DMC DMC DMC
MC MC MC (runs all the way to striker for the two either side of centre)
CF (right click - no forward runs)
Take your pick, iv done it with scunthorpe to luton to whoever, after a season your players will be well established and I guarantee you successive promotion, just clear out the dead wood instantly to raise cash for wages) - could you do a brian clough?
I have over 100 games hours on this, so you can trust me with this.
Kiegan Parker - St.Johnstone
Scott Parker - Charlton Athletic
Joe Cole - West Ham (becomes best player in game)
Kennedy Bakircioglu - Hammarby
Kim Kallstrom - ? (Swedish Club, not sure of the top of my head)
TÃ³ Madeira - ? (Portuguese)
Taribo West - Free
Akinori Nishizawa - Cerezo
Michael Carrick - West Ham
My Personal Favourites are TÃ³ Madeira, Kennedy Bakircioglu, Akinori Nishizawa and Taribo West
Cannot believe no one has mentioned these absolutely frightening strikers. Alexandros Papadopolous who plays with Eth. Asteras, you''ll get him for Â£1 million & Anastasios Skalidis who plays with Chania, you'll get him for Â£500 000
Cant bleve no1 has suggested this he'll cost you btween 15 and 19 mil to start but will be the top scorer in the game for at least 5 season if you make him mark the keeper. Also CHERNO SAMBA cheap becomes great.
I have played literally thoushands of hours on this game. It is the best ever manager game. This includes probably betweeen 15-30 games, so I know what I'm talking about. Here's who yuo should by early, but be advised their greatness varies each time you start a game:-
Van De Vaart
If you start as MANU!!!!! the best team to have is:
Keepers:Barthez,Iker Casilias sign for 13million
Defence:the neville's Mexes Sign from Auxree for 8million Bramble from ipswich for 20million (its worth it)
Defending mids:Roy Keane,Zanetii from inter for25million over 6 months
Attack: To Madeira sign for 600k(or less 50k depending on version) from gouevia and Van Nistleroy
Formation is 4-2-1-1-2 this team will take about 2 seasons to make and you will have to sell alot of players.
Ive been playing Champ 01 02 since it first came out and know what im talking about when it comes to this topic.
Here are some great players for you to aquire:
Tsigalko ( ESSENTIAL!!)
Thats all i can remember off the top of my head.
Also look out for Ryan Webb after around 8/9 seasons. He starts at Man Utd and becomes amazing.
Fernando Torres (5-10mil)-Quite pricey to start off with but he becomes great
Daimano Zenoni (8-15mil)- Great defensive midfielder is great for any squad
Giacomo Cipriani (1-4mil)- Amazing young stricker will become wonderful for your club
Jardel-from Sporting he has a great goal scoring record for sporting but flops when he joins your club
Titus Bramble-He starts off playing quite well but then has a huge dip in form for a long time
RB- Okoronkwo- Shaktar
CM- van der Vaart
CM- Hadzimehdovic- Lyn
FC- Brozek- Wisla
FC- TSIGALKO- MINSK- BEST PLAYER EVER!( in one season for man utd he scored over 100 goals)
I can not, I say can not, believe that nobody has mentioned this guy.
Tonton Zola Moukoko - AM/F(C)
He begins at Derby, can play anywhere in midfield or upfront and you can normally pick him up for around £400k. Maybe not a bargain to start with, but his value can reach £15m once he's about 26, aslong as he's played and your team is good enough.
Also the legend that is Sergey Nikiforenko. An offer of about £130k should get him, which rises to £11m in 3 seasons. English clubs beware, he struggles for a work permit.
Some others are;
Finally, I found a guy called Walter Juarez, but this was a generated name as I'd done a 10 season+ game, but if he comes up, sign him. He's a Argentinan striker who's had a bad season if he doesn't score 30+
The 1 thing you need to know is that you have to try and get a team that works together. I am AC Milan and I have brought 4 players ion the last 2 years. That is all you have to do in the game.
Chiotis (GK) kallqist (GK)
Livermore -(DL) West-(DL)
Florin Batrinu-(DC) Helder Rosario-(DC)
Dunne -(DR) Laurie-(DR)
Radoslaw Kaluzny -(DM) Bircham-(DM)
Reid (Lcm) Kallstrom (Lcm)
Kerr (cm) Cahill (cm)
Ifill (Rcm) Brandon(Rcm)
Samba (CF) Tsigalko (CF)
To madeira (CF) Jaoao paiva (CF)
A good team to go is millwall and play a 4-1-3-2 with full back have short runs as well as the three centre midfielders give them short runs. Team instructions are attacking,short passing, pressing hard tackling no for the rest and make Centre Backs mark opposing strikers.
Other great players
Jan Vennegoor of Hesselink-PSV
Here's a list of very good players and their teams:
Steven Reid (Millwall)
