Easy wins hints

-Choose a team with good team chemistry. Go to "Club Transfer" and select "Dynamo" from "Major League Soccer". Since they have the largest 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", then arrange the squad by editing and you can win easily.
More reasonable individual and team goals in "Be a Pro" season

-Use the following trick if you find an objective that is difficult to reach. Before the next 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 your striker has 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. Then, 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.

Easy money in Career mode

Scout out players and sell them to make easy money. To avoid paying the scouted player's salary, put them in the shortlist and sign them in a transfer period.

Keeping players longer in Manager mode

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.

Developing good players in Manager mode

To make all your players increase to over 90 in two or three seasons, before you start 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. Then, select "Save and exit" to save the changed data. 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.

Easy goals hints

-Beating the wall is a pretty difficult job, but the best player for this is Ronaldinho. While hitting, fill the power to about 75% to 80%. As soon as 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 will require some practice.

-First, take the ball on the left or right side of your opponent team's net and move diagonally towards the goal while keeping [Pace Control] pressed. When the goalkeeper comes to capture the ball, press [Shoot]. The ball will usually go into the net.

-Always use a left footed player for a left corner or a right footed player for right corner. Turn almost to the right for a left corner or almost to the left for a right corner. Your pointer will aim at the near post. Press [Cross] and have slightly less power than full. Continue to press [Shoot] and the ball will hit the crossbar. Your player will head the ball into the net. No goal keeper can stop him. If you stay in this corner you will almost always score a goal from a corner kick.

Rating 1

Clean sheets

For clean sheets in season, tournament, Be A Pro Season, manager modes (everything outside exhibitions), it will be the final keeper present at the end of a shutout (clean sheet) game that receives the credit. For example, if you start with Edwin Van der Sar in the first half, Thomasz Kusczak at 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.

Close free kicks tip

Hold down LB and RB then aim. If you are in the middle aim to the players stronger foot. Kick the ball at about 1/4 power and it will go in most of the time.

Easy money in Manager mode

-When managing a new club that has less finances to afford major transfers, reduce all the contracts of the major stars in your previous club to one year. Then, fail to renew them. Move to the new club and go to the transfer window with your small amount of available cash, then 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.

-Once 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 because some players may be worth a fortune while some not even 200,000.

-To earn more money in the first season, go to any team in Team Management mode and edit your favorite players to a young age while also reducing their abilities to less than 80. Set their growth type to elite, then edit the unwanted players to 99 in every area and make them a forward. At the beginning of the season you will get sponsors paying large amounts. You can sell those super forwards for between 90 million to 160 million. The players grow fast 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.

Spending experience points in Manager mode

In Manager mode, access the experience points menu. At the top of the screen is an option you can toggle if you want to have the experience points spent automatically. Turn the autospend off and save up until you have about 40,000 experience points, or roughly a third of a season. Then, go back into the menu where you spend your points. You can spend much 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.

Recommended formation

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