While we think there are no codes which you can stick in to this game for various uprades or more money etc...
I would like to suggest that you check out our user submitted cheats ((Click Here) or hints (Click Here) on this site where you will find suggestions for good teams and players plus a few nice tricks.

Good young players.

I saw here that in everyone's 'super teams' all the players appear to be about 30 at the start of the game, which is no good if you want to play for more than 2 or 3 seasons.
Here is a list of players that develop to be some of the best on the game, and are all relatively cheap at the beggining of the first season. It does vary from game to game how well a player develops, but these ones usually become very good, provided you give them plenty of games.
1. AM/FC, Ederson, 17 y/o, £20,000, (RS Futebol)
2. AM/FRC, Toledo, 21 y/o, £200,000, (Catanzaro)
3. DLC, De la Cuesta, 20 y/o, £350,000, (Atletico Nacional)
4. AMR, Mariano Gonzalez, 22 y/o, £4,000,000, (Racing)
5. AMC, Diego, 18 y/o, £8,000,000, (Santos)
6. DC, Gabriel Milito, 22 y/o, ..

My team

My team is a dream team, I'm chelsea and play 4-3-3 and win almost everything with great scores, Here is my squat:
DM Kasper Smeichel (man city)
DR Mancini (as Roma) (great back and verry good in attack also)
DL Wayne Bridge (chelsea) (same as mancini, but not so good in attack)
DC Carles Puyol (Barca) (Love him he is the greatest)
DC Robert Huth/John terry (Take Huth for Free kicks, Terry for good defending)
Mr Aaron Lennon (Leeds) (20 year old worldclass winger)
MC Diego(Santos) Just awesome great in everything!!
ML Joe Cole (Chelsea) Worldclass midfielder after 2 or 3 seasons
Fc/r Evandro roncatto (Worldclass forword at the age of 20)
SC Anatoli Todorov (GREAT!!! 20 finishing dribbeling and good pacek, worldclass and worth 71 milion eu..

Great free players and a good team!

Always check out for expiring contracts or unprotected contracts.
Unprotected contract must be paid with a compensation.
The great players you can get here are:
Always make offer half a year before the contract expires!!!
Robinho, for free halfway through the second season
Thierry Henry, for free after first season.
Diego, end of secon season.
Joe Cole, got him cheap on unprotected contract.
Wayne Bridge, same as Cole.
Jos Antonio Reyes, same as Cole and Bridge.

Amazing guy

There is this guy called Fredy William Thompson.
He is a must buy and is very cheap. He only costs 525k.
He is an absolutely amazing player and comes at a bargain price. He is only available on Large Datbase.
You must offer him a very good contract as a lot of clubs are intrested in him.

Cheap Players For Division Team...

I got bored of playing with Arsenal so I started a team from Div 1. Well basically the players sucked and with my budget I could not get quality players so loaning players was my only shot at getting promoted.
Stuart Taylor, Arsenal loan him to me. I got Andreas Isaksson in me 2nd season when I was promoted for 1m but values goes up to 15m because he is really young and world class. Also look for Lucas Rastello, I found him in French U21 squad. Cheap and a great back up keeper, only 375k, starts all 15 at age of 20!
I got Kevin Dawson frm Chesterfield
Alan O'hare is a great left back, gets 8 and 7s in every div1 and Epl game.
You can try and get Freddy Guarin, world class and try to loan Cesc Fabregas..

Simple Stuff

A simple hint - obviously go for young talent, but also keep at least 2 old(er) players (28+). These players will have to be experienced, quality players (even though they may havd passed their prime), and they will provide the backbone of your team. I normally would go for an older keeper, and 1 older outfield player (not on the wings, as pace is needed).
If a player is unsettled (as de la Cuesta - Columbian often is), bring in another player of that nationality, and try to fit him into the squad.
1 hint on players - Newcastle's 2 young, English strikers are amazing! - Future stars - Shola Ameobi, Michael Chopra.

Couple of good 'uns

Two good players to buy:
Pavel Beganskiy of BATE. Enter his name in the quick search. You should be able to get him for about 500k, but his value rockets to 7.5million as soon as you get him. Play him up front; in the Premiership I think he's about a 15-25 goals a season striker.
Daniel Braathen of Skeid. You have to activate the Norwegian league at the start to get him. He'll come for about 250k, but his value rises to about 2.8million and carries on if you play him regularly. I like to play him on the wings and then play him up front after two seasons.

Data Editor

With the latest Championship Manager, there comes a Data Editor.
If you click "Start" and then "All Programs", you should find and file called "Championship Manager 03-04". Click on this with the mouse and 2 options will come up. Click on Data Editor.

A GOOD Gillingham player!!!!

Nyron Nosworthy is absolutely excellent!
I bought him for Arsenal and he gets a 9 or 10 every game and he's really cheap. A must buy!

Hints for manchester united

1)your formation should be a flat 4-4-2, with the wingers making forward runs (to AM R/L) and the central midfielders making backward runs (to DMC).
In central midfield you should play defensive midfielders only. Sell paul scholes, ole solskjaer, diego forlan, nicky butt, roy keane and ryan giggs.
You will now be filthy rich!! (this will take some time though, it toook me three seasons to get the invincible squad I have now - be patient!!)
2)PLAY KLEBERSON. He is surprisingly brilliant and reasonably young. 3)righty-ho, this is how my team lines up:
DR-Phil Neville
DL-John O'Shea
DC-Rio Ferdinand
DC-Mikeal Silvestre
MR- C. Ronaldo
ML-Arjen Robbem
FC-R. Van N..

new, young striker

You absoloutly must buy this guy. The name is Evandro Roncatto. He is 17 at the beginning of the game. On his debut, he scored 2 goals. One was an amazing curling shot from the dead ball line, a bit like the one figo scored against man-u.
Happy Scoring

Just Starting

End of contracts

After one season if you are a good team like chelsea, man utd or real madrid then you can sign some worldclass players on free tranfers as thier contracts expire after one season they are Edgar Davids(amazing),Thierry Henry, Guti and many more.

Promising youngsters

I found some great young players on my game like a star striker gianpaolo pazzini, Aaron lennon, jan kristiansen and the young goalkeeper Kasper Schmeichel.

Who to buy and who not to buy

Ok, if you buy these players you are bound to do well. To find these players, all you need to do is go onto quick search and type in these names :-
Diego (becomes amazing)
Wright-Phillips (becomes England midfielder)
Lucio (ready-made world-class player)
Anelka (becomes world-class rated striker)
Tevez (brilliant young striker)
Barton (earns caps for England ahead of Gerrard)
Joaquin (explosive young midfielder)
Paul Robinson (amazing young goalkeeper)
Batistuta (old but very cheap and very good)
Romario (like Batistuta)
Goater (awful stats but always scores)
Cristiano Ronaldo (exciting young midfielder)
Nicky Weaver (good, cheap back-up goalkeeper)
Torres (becomes a goal machine)
Scott Parker (great young England..


Before the season starts get all these players that are listed because they are worth it:

1. Frey ( plays for parma, what a shot-stopping keeper).
2. Coboda (I think that is how you spell his name, his plays for Inter Milan).
3. H. Nakata (he plays for parma).
4. Gerrard (he plays for liverpool I think his better than beckham).
5. Martins (he plays for Inter milan, his a goal scoring machine).
6. Andrino (I think that is how you spell his name he plays for parma, he doesn't stop scoring).

This is cool,
It lets you change player names, stats, stadiums and capacity, team names and create new players!
When you go on to the screen were the champ manager and readme underneath is editor. Go on that and follow instructions.

Get a new database

If you've chosen a small database and now you want a large one, I have worked out how.
On the screen at the beginning where you can make a new game or resume your last game, click on game options, edit preferances. Choose a large database and then go and resume a game. You will now have a large database.
