Fix National Teams

Due to the licensing restrictions on the game not all the national teams have legitimate players. This can be easily corrected by removing the file that creates a 'mask' on the effected teams. To get rid of the 'mask' go to 'C:/Program Files/Sports Interactive/Football Manager 2008/data/db/800/lnc/all' and remove the file 'fake' inc (don't delete the file) and when you now start a new game the correct squads for ALL the national teams will be available.

Are you able to start off a new season with 100 million pound transfer fund with any club

The money cheat

The money cheat consists of going the team you actually want go (for example- burnley) and also adding a rich user for example chelsea or arsenal. When you are in control of both teams go the rich team and bid for one of your actual teams players that you would never play anyway. When you get the option to negotiate a contract with your player give him a very high wage so that he definately goes. When the player finaly goes to say chelsea for forty million or so, your team will be left with forty million and chelsea will have your player. After that retire with chelsea and go wild with your money. (can go with multiple teams at a time)

midfield domination

i started a game with roma and initialy played de rossi and aquilane but then sold him to milan after the 1st season and bought angelo palombo and bodmer and won two successive champions league titles i reccomend both these players as as they are both solid and can create. Another bonus for signing bodmer is that he can play almost anywhere on the pitch even striker.

Good players

These are a few good players to buy:
Billy Sharp- Sheffied Utd, Aaron Hunt- Werder Bremen for this set database to large,Jonny Evans, Fabian Brandy, F.Campbell,Pique, Eagles, Scott Sinclair, Andy Caroll, Carlos Vela, dnt buy defoe until next season get him for £4m trust me, loan Zarate from Al-Sadd or buy him for 3million but put clauses in etc
Send scouts to under 18/19/20s comps and to south america picks up great cheap players

Old to New

Alot of premiership team nowadays have gone of the traditional 4-4-2 tactic and changed to a more attaking 4-5-1 formation so I thought I should use this in football manager so I have came up with a fantastic tactic that I am using in my current arsenal team this is a guide on how to do it:
Have your right back and left back do forward runs and cross balls often have a defensive mid player never go forward and everything should be on the lowest there is apart from through balls which should be full you should have two centre muds have one go forward often and make through balls and long shots as high as they go your second midfielder should have everything full apart from through balls and cross ball have them the lowest your two attaking wide players should have everthing full and ..

win at Football Manager 2008 made essey

there are several ways to have a perfect season.
Option 1. One day before each match take control of other team make them lose
Option 2. Have a massive squad cheepist way to add players is football management data editor section located ( my p.c. -> c drive -> program files -> sports interactive -> Football Manager 2008 then load data editor.)
Option 3. Take control of your team then take control of team with lots of money
Then make them by a rubbish player of all there money (spend this money on players )
Lats Option. Take control of the team you wanna by the players from and you can get them for $0 this might reduce the market value of certain players. All the best of luck

Great Player

This player plays for rimini and is an amazing attaker only 22 so if he doesnt get in your team send him out on loan when you buy him he has 17 finishing 15 first touch and dribbling but after just one season he has got 20 finishing 18 dribbling and 18 first touch he only costs 3.8 mill and in his first season for me he played 28 vames and scored 38 I am man utd.
