-The following players will be rated 90+ by the third manager season in a 4-1-2-1-2 formation:

-The following is a recommended young team in a 4-4-2 formation:
If you find an objective that is hard to reach, before the upcoming match, save the game. When you see the tasks for the next match that you cannot pass, quit the mode, reload it, and the objectives will change to one you want. For example, if you are striker having trouble dealing with being in an offside position (and that is not even being called by the referee) less than eight times, just quit the mode and reload it again. After that, it may change to "Commit less than 4 fouls" or "Score at least one goal". However your team objectives such as "Concede less than 5 corners" or "Stay scoreless by the 80th minute" will also change.
-Beating the wall is a pretty toughjob. but The best player for this is Ronaldinho. While hitting, fill the power to about 75% to 80%. Once the player starts moving, press Up/Left or Up/Right toward the side where the goalkeeper is not standing. The ball should land in the net. Note: This might require some practice.
-First, take the ball on the left or right side of your opponent team's net. Move diagonally towards the goal while keeping PACE CONTROL pressed. When the goalkeeper comes to capture the ball, press SHOOT. The ball will almost always go into the net.

To make all your players increase to over 90 in two or three seasons, before starting the season, go to the "Team Management" menu. Select "Edit Players" then select the team you want to use in Manager mode. Edit all the players and decrease their age to the minimum (18 years old) setting their year of birth to 1990. After changing the age of each player you must select "Save and exit" to save the changed data. Then, start Manager mode with the team you selected earlier. Young player will grow a lot with match ex. and grow two to five levels after every season if they play well.
For clean sheets to be credited in season, tournament, Be A Pro Season, manager modes (everything outside exhibitions), it would be the final keeper present at the end of a shutout (clean sheet) game. For example, if you start with Edwin Van der Sar in the first half, Thomasz Kusczak in the start of second half, but finish with Wayne Rooney in goal because Kusczak was red-carded, and the final score was 2-0, Rooney will be credited with the clean sheet, and not Edwin Vander Sar. Kusczak is ineligible because he was red-carded. The clean sheet is void if any goals are scored against them. If any keeper conceded a goal, any substitute keepers in goal will not benefit even if they didn't concede any further goals.
-When moving from a club to manage a new club that has less finances to afford largetransfers, reduce all the contracts of the big stars in your previous club to one year. After that, fail to renew them. Move to the new club and go to the transfer window with your small amount of available cash. Go to the free agents. The players from your previous club will be listed as free agents. Transfer them to your new club and sell them at a high price to get enough funds to manage your new club.
-When the transfer period begins, check for free agents and offer them the highest salary. Once they come to your club, sell them. However, check their bio first. Some players may be worth a fortune, and some not even 200,000.
-To earn more money in the first season, first go to any team in Team Management mode. Edit your favorite players to a young age and reduce their abilities to less than 80. Set their growth type to elite then edit the unwanted players to 99 in every area. Make them a forward. When the season starts you will get sponsors paying large amounts. You can sell those super forwards for between 90 million to 160 million. The players grow quickly and you can have a contract of five years at a smaller amount. Keep the age of super forwards between 25 and 28 years old so that they retire soon.
In Manager mode, access the experience points menu. Near the top of the screen is an option that can be toggled if you wish to have the experience points spent automatically. Turn the autospend off. Save up until you have about 40,000 experience points, or roughly a third of a season. After that, go back into the menu where you spend your points. You can spend a lot more points in one go. This makes it easier to decide what aspects of a player to upgrade. When you have 40,000 experience points, turn on the auto spend. The CPU spends the points better if there are more to spend.
Before starting Manager mode with a team, edit the players ages so that they play longer for your team. For example, with Liverpool Steven Gerrard (age 28) might play for five years. However Steven Gerrard (age 14) will play for at least twenty more years.
Choose a team with good team chemistry. Go to "Club Transfer" and select "Dynamo" from "Major League Soccer". They have the biggest team chemistry (95). Do a club transfer of all the players of the team and send them tp any club. Select your best eleven players and send them to "Dynamo". Arrange the squad by editing and you can win easily.

Go to "Create Formation" and select 4-3-3 as your base and make the four defenders a wide diamond, with the sweeper at the bottom of the diamond in the center of the 18 box, two defenders at the corners of the box, and the last defender just above the semi circle slightly. Note: The top defender should become a midfielder if you have him placed correctly. This formation works better than the 4-3-3 alone as well as any other formation.
