    5. Inbox and News

      Inbox and News Inbox Your Inbox is the main hub of your game world. All important and key information relating directly to you or any part of your club will arrive here in the form of a news item. How do I know what’s important and what isn’t?

    7. Your Squad and Team Report

      You’ll spend much of your time poring over the Squad screen as you look to develop and mould a group of individual players into a finely-tuned machine capable of success. It’s therefore worth familiarising yourself with this particular screen, and the screens associated with it.   The Team Report is the best way to take both an at-a-glance look and a detailed study of the players available to you. It is a comprehensive breakdown of your squad from top to bottom, with your backroom staf
    8. Player Happiness

      Part of successful team-building is ensuring that your squad comes together in the right way, developing inter-personal relationships and having the right characters to pick the team up when they’re doing badly and to keep things going when doing well. How important is it to maintain a happy squad? It cannot be stated strongly enough that the morale and happiness of your players is one of the biggest factors in whether or not you succeed as a manager. You can have the most talented pla
    9. Reserve Squads

      You’ve got to look after the future of your club. Your Reserve team is always available for viewing and for interaction from the tabs menu and typically may contain a mixture of young professionals and older, ‘washed-up’ players who no longer cut it at the senior level, depending on the country you’re managing in. How you manage them is completely up to you. At the start of each season you will be asked by the governing football association if you wish to continue entering/enter the competi
    10. Players

      Overview and Status Icons It’s a simple fact that to be successful, you need the right players. That’s not to say you need the best players, but identifying the necessary players to suit your plans is of paramount importance. Whenever a person – player or non-player – appears in a list, they will have a small circle with the letter ‘i’ next to their name. This is the ‘Information’ pop-up. Selecting it (or hovering over it, depending on your Preferences selection) will display a sm
    11. Staff

      Overview The Staff Overview screen displays the senior staff in charge of running each department of your backroom team, and provides quick-access links to customise the remit of their day-to-day activities.

    12. Tactics

      Tactical Templates To assist you in setting up the basic framework of a tactic, a host of templates are provided for you to use as a foundation for the way in which you want to play. Each tactical template sets a series of team and player instructions geared towards a particular style of play; once you’ve picked the one that best suits your plans (the textual descriptions on screen will help guide your choice), have a look at the various instructions set as a result to better understand wha
    13. Training

The General view takes the Profile screen and expands upon it with more detail – such as rival teams and favoured members of staff - and greater depth in each area. Information The ‘Information’ sub-tab displays all the information abo
    16. Finances

      Good financial management is imperative. Your board will expect and demand it. You can be successful on the pitch but if your finances are in a perilous state you’ll be heading down a troublesome road that many teams struggle to come back from. Furthermore, with ‘fair play’ rules and restrictions coming into effect in more and more competitions, it is imperative to have a firm grasp on the club’s fiscal responsibilities. Basic Finances These options largely deal with the day-to-day fin
    17. Competitions and Fixtures

    19. Enhancing Your Experience Further

      Advanced Game Setup If you want to have greater control about the setup of your new saved game, and include several more leagues than the Quick Start setup allows, then you should use the Advanced Setup option. Rather than selecting a team (although you are able to choose this at this time from the bar at the top of the screen) and getting into your saved game as quickly as possible, you can tweak and tailor things to your exact requirements here. The Active Leagues in the main s
