Hi all, this is ruchirkc. As you all know I like writing faqs and it has now
become allmost as a new hobby. When I first bought FIFA 07, as I usualy do, I
looked up on the internet to find a few faqs to assist me learning the game
more quickly. Sadly, I could only find a few in-depth manager mode faqs...no
general ones; plus most of them were meant for Xbox or PS version of the
game. So I finally decided to write a faq for FIFA 07 for the benefit of all
you PC gamers out there!

FIFA 07 is the first EA FIFA game I have played. Yeah, you would be saying
how did I manage to miss all those great FIFAs, but to tell you the fact I
never liked playing any of the "sports" games. I didn't like them for a
reason too: in the years gone by, there were many great action games and
strategy games made but not great sports games. But since the late 2005
everything has changed, people (including me) have started to like the sport
genre in gaming much more than before because of massive improvement in
gameplay, graphics, sound etc in all the sports titles.

Enough of my gibbering now! Let's get on with the Game Introduction...

+------------+
|+----------+|
||GAME INTRO||
|+----------+|
+------------+

FIFA 07 is a game made by EA Sports. It is the latest football game in the
Fifa series. This game has perfect gameplay where you control almost
everything, cross power, shot power, body blocking and more. This game also
has better graphics than its predecessors, albiet it hasn't been improved
much if you compare it to FIFA 06.

In this game, your players will be more aggresive. Your defenders will not
stay in their own half for the entire game, the midfielders can stray away
from their positions to reach a cross or a through ball from someone. Your
strikers are agressive as allways. Every player in your team have potential
to score, even your defenders!

The entrance is just amazing improvement, kind of Winning Eleven entrance
with the game showing each team's formation. The animation when you score or
a goal is conceded is just amazing.

The real spectacle of this game is not the gameplay, (Winning Eleven tops
that) but the manager mode. You can sign sponsors which you can gain money to
pay your players' salaries. You can also loan in players or loan out your
players who are not playing. This will keep them happy and you won't need to
pay their salaries. Changing Kit numbers is also a nice feature in FIFA 07.
Not to forget Team Chemistry.

From the first whistle of the season to heartbreak of cup failure, FIFA 07
throws you into the rollercoaster ride of a football season, has your team
got what it takes to win the league or will they bravely battle relegation -
its all up to you. Relish every scintillating victory over bitter rivals and
fume through every gut-wrenching poor performance at home. Savour the
spine-tingling stadium atmosphere, home and away, as your team battles their
way up the league table. Listen as your supporters chant your players' names
and bellow all the rousing club songs through rain and shine.

FIFA 07 plays a fast-paced and realistic game of soccer and boasts plenty of
gameplay options for solo and social players alike.

The Good: Looks great; sounds superb; plays an enjoyable, fast-paced game of
soccer; interactive leagues are a great new way to play online.

The Bad: Defensive players are a bit lazy (since they allow the opponent to
go way into the penalty area).

||CHANGES FROM FIFA 06||
|+--------------------+|
+----------------------+

Almost a year to the day since the release of FIFA 06, EA Sports has released
that game's inevitable sequel, FIFA 07 for the PC, the PlayStation 2, and
the Xbox. Last year's game could only be described as the best FIFA game to
date; so the question, of course, is whether or not EA has improved upon that
game in any meaningful way. Not all of the changes that have been implemented
since last year's game have been for the better, but there are more than
enough improvements here to make FIFA 07 worth a look.

On the pitch, for example, you'll find that FIFA 07 plays a quite different
game of soccer to its predecessor, though initially it can be difficult to
figure out exactly what has changed. One of the few obvious changes to this
year's game is that players accelerate and decelerate more realistically,
which means that they can't turn nearly as quickly when they're moving at
speed. This results in your needing to pass the ball more, and depending on
your play style, you might find that your trick (right analog) stick gets a
lot more use than it did last year when you're attempting to beat opposing
players in one-on-one situations. Both passing and using trick moves are a
little more challenging in FIFA 07 than they were in 06, and because that's
true for both teams (and because tackling when you're on defense is still
relatively easy), the result is often that ball possession changes more
frequently.

Trick moves have become more challenging not because they have a lower
success rate, but simply because the controls for them are a little less
forgiving. The section on trick moves in the FIFA 07 instruction manual bears
more than a passing resemblance to a special-moves list for a fighting game,
and the tricks available to you vary according to whether your player is
running or standing still at the time. Passing the ball hasn't become more
difficult per se; you just can't take it for granted as much because the
accuracy of your passes is now dependant on the positioning of your player
in relation to both the ball and his intended target. A pass to a player
directly in front of you when you have the ball at your feet, for example,
is more likely to succeed than a pass to a teammate who is barely in your
players' field of vision, particularly if you're trying to make that pass on
your first touch after receiving the ball at waist height. Lengthy strings
of one-touch passes, then, are more difficult in FIFA 07 than in previous
games, which adds a nice risk-versus-reward mechanic any time you attempt one
rather than take a moment to get the ball under control.

Shots at goal are also greatly affected by the positioning and balance of
your player, as well as by how well he has the ball under control. If you try
to play the game just like FIFA 06, you'll watch a lot of your shots fly wide
of the goal and into the crowd. This can be frustrating at times, but the
flipside is that spectacular, almost unbelievable goals in the game are now
the exception rather than the norm, which is certainly a good thing. That's
not to say that scoring goals in FIFA 07 is difficult, though, because it
isn't. Defenders generally back off attacking players a little too much, and
the goalkeepers, although good at stopping shots for the most part, are a
little too prone to spilling the ball when they do. Worthy of note is the new
"finesse shot" feature that, using a modifier button that needs to be held
down when taking a shot, lets you unleash shots that are more accurate but
less powerful. If you've already beaten the defense and rounded the keeper
it's a great way to avoid embarrassing open-goal misses.

The ball physics in FIFA 07 is also much better than that of 06.

FIFA 07's most improved feature is the in-game sound. The commentary from
ITV's Clive Tyldesley and Sky Sports' Andy Gray isn't nearly as repetitive as
it has been in previous years, and it's both accurate and well delivered to
boot. Complementing the commentary team's efforts perfectly is the noise from
the crowd, which changes dramatically according to what's happening on the
field and which of the teams is playing at home. Many of the teams in FIFA 07
have specific crowd chants (it's generally just the name of the team being
shouted over and over again, but it's still neat), and these will give way to
thunderous applause and cheering or venomous boos and whistles as the action
dictates. One especially nice touch is that if a home team is winning
comfortably and passing the ball around without their opponents getting a
touch, the home crowd will start to cheer every completed pass
individually--mocking the away side in exactly the same way you'd expect them
to in real life. Furthermore, when the crowd is quiet, you'll occasionally
hear the players calling to each other, though it's far easier to make out
what they're saying if you're on the practice ground with no crowd at all.

|               PART: 3 - MANAGER MODE               |
======================================================

When you're not playing online, you'll likely be putting your management
skills to the test in FIFA 07's manager mode. The manager mode lets you
assume control of any team in the game (or even one of your own creation) and
then tasks you with leading them to glory while making decisions that can
affect your club both on and off the field.

+-----------------+
|+---------------+|
||GETTING STARTED||
|+---------------+|
+-----------------+

+--------------+
|WELCOME SCREEN|
+--------------+

This is the screen that welcomes you to the new FIFA 07 Manager Mode:

+----------------------------------------------------------+
|               WELCOME TO MANAGER MODE			   |
|							   |
|This is the Season...you take full control		   |
|							   |
|							   |
|-Look after any League Club in the game		   |
|-Add your Created Clubs to any league			   |
|-Develop your Youth Players into the Stars of tomorrow	   |
|-Manage from the touchline in the all new Visual Sim	   |
|-Scout the World to find your team's missing link	   |
|-Chose your sponsors, and decide what you want to achieve |
|						           |
|							   |
|And remember to keep your board happy, or face the axe!   |
+----------------------------------------------------------+

+----------------+
|CREATE A MANAGER|
+----------------+

The first thing you have to do before starting the Manager Mode is creating
yourself in the game, as a Manager of course.  Don't bother too much by the
way you will look, this will all be generic...

These are the things you have to set up before advancing to the next
screen:

[*] Manager look (21 pictures)
[*] First name

[*] Surname

[*] Nation
[*] Currency (pounds, euros or dollars) [You can change this later]
[*] Born (Year)

[*] Born (Month)

[*] Born (Day)

Just remember that 
you will carry on for 15 seasons what you write down here.
You can't edit
 this info later!

+--------------+
|SELECT COUNTRY|
+--------------+

The first thing you will notice is that this time your job offers, unlike
FIFA 06, aren't
 distributed in regions but by country. Also note that below
the country
name the game tells you if there are job offers for you there.
Don't worry by this, because at the beginning of your Career there will be
job offers in every country.

The list of countries (and leagues) available on the games is as follows:

[*] England
	F.A. Premier League
	Football League Champ
	Football League One
	Football League Two

[*] France
	French Ligue 1 Orange

	French Ligue 2 Orange

[*] Germany
	German Bundesliga 1
	German Bundesliga 2

[*] Italy
	Italian Serie A
	Italian Serie B

[*] Holland
	Dutch Eredivisie

[*] Norway
	Norwegian Tippeligaen

[*] Poland
	Polish Ekstraidasa

[*] Portugal
	Portuguese Liga BWIN

[*] Scottland
	Scottish Premiere

[*] Spain
	Spanish Primera
	Spanish Segunda

[*] Sweden
	Swedish Allsvenskan

[*] Switzerland
	Swiss Axpo Super League

[*] Turkey
	Turkish Super League

[*] Brazil
	Brazilian League

[*] Mexico
	Mexican 1st Division

[*] United States
	MLS

[*] Republic of Korea
	K-League

[*] Austria
	Austrian Bundesliga

[*] Belgium
	Belgium League

[*] Denmark
	Danish Superligaen


As you can see, you have many leagues to choose from. I don't recommend a
league to start from.  It's completely up to you.

My only advice is to start from the lower divisions and gain your prestige to
take over bigger teams as you advance from season to season.  That's the
reason for this game mode. If you insist in taking a single team and manage
it for the 15 seasons, well, if that makes you happy...

Just remember, nothing makes prestige grow more than achieving trophies from
all around the world, so don't make the mistake of staying in the same team
for too long!

+-----------+
|SELECT TEAM|
+-----------+

So you finally decided for a country?  Good, now you have to choose a team
from that Country. Note that in this screen you may find teams from
different leagues all mixed up, it depends if the Country you selected has
more than one league. I think EA could have made it better and easier by
sorting the team by leagues.

Search in the list for the team you want, and when you find it, you will see
a couple of stars next to its name. The teams are ranked from 1 to 5 stars in
this game, meaning that the more stars a team have, the better level this
team has.

In the right side of the screen you will see the team's kits and his stats,
and also you will see how much budget they have. The better the team, the
bigger the budget.

If you are new to this game, I would recommend you to stick to lower teams
for the first couple of seasons, since having a big team doesn't mean that
you will have money to spare, although the budget might look tempting, so
the best thing in this case is to wait until you get used to manage a small
team, then you will be ready to manage a bigger team.

(And no, I won't post here the complete list of teams in the game, it would
be a complete waste of time since there are way too many to list. You have
the game, look it for yourself!)

After you sign for a team, you will see the classic newspaper news telling
the world about you joining your new team. Sadly, you can only see the
headers, you can't read the newspaper article :(

+----------------+
|READING MESSAGES|
+----------------+

After picking a team you will be introduced to your laptop, actually is just
your email client in your laptop. There will be 4 new messages waiting for
you.

The first one is from your Board of Directors. Learn to please these guys
because no matter how good your team is, if you don't please this people you
have no future in your team. Anyway, the mail tells you about their findings
on the most influential player on the team. They will ask you to line up this
man to make sure the fans are happy.

The next mail is from your Scout reporting on the Youth Academy (I will
explain this later in detail). There will always be at least one player that
is actually doing great in the Reserves and you might want to take a look at
him, and it's up to you if you sign him for the first team, or let him waste
on the reserves.

The next mail is again from your Board of Directors. These are the
expectations they have for you and the team.  Make sure you read this
carefully because you will need to fulfill these requirements during the
season if you want to increase your prestige and if you don't like to get
fired.

Finally, the last mail warns you about the players that might have their
contracts about to finish, so you better take care of this as quickly as you
can! Though it's not neccessary since you can extend all the expiring
contracts at the end of the season in just 1 click.

+-------------------+
|SELECTING A SPONSOR|
+-------------------+

This is very important, so you better read this screen carefully!

You need a sponsor if you want to be able to pay your players after every
match.Sign for a sponsor that doesn't supply your needs and you will not
last long on any team (especially a poor one).

On this screen you will see from 1 to 2 pages of sponsors. Every sponsor
have different signing offers, so you need to read and understand what is
what you are reading.

You can highlight any sponsor to view the associated Sponsor Details. The
payout schedule will differ between sponsors, so choose wisely and consider
your team's stengths and abilities when making your final selection.
Different regions have different sets of sponsors. Click on the "Select"
button to view the specific stipulation of the contract and to sign it.

I have seen and observed that the various sponsors offer money according to
how much your team is rated (by starts i.e.). For example, a 5-star team will
usually get per match funding offers like 1,400,000 to 2,300,000 (including
win bonus). Whereas, a 1/2 (half)-star team will get per match funding offers
of 1,000 to 2,000.

This is usually what they offer you:

[*] FUNDING PER GAME
    ----------------

This is the most important thing you need to look after. This is the amount
of money the sponsor will give your club after every match, regardless of
performance. You might want to sign for a sponsor that offers you the highest
per game funding in the first seasons, specially if you pick a lower team,
because this and your ticket sales are the only income you will have.

[*] LOYALTY BONUS
    -------------

This is a plus. Many sponsors offer you this bonus if you sign for them for
consecutive seasons.  This shouldn't be the thing you are looking if you want
to keep your finances healthy! Yes, I know it's great to have an extra bonus
to make that big transfer you want, but don't get blind for it, don't let
this decide for you!

[*] LEAGUE BONUS
    ------------

This is the amount of money that your sponsor will pay you if you finish in
first place at the end of the season.  This could be a reason to sign for a
specific sponsor, since chances are that you will actually finish in that
place...  ;)

[*] DOMESTIC CUP BONUS
    ------------------

If you win the Cup for the Country you are playing for, you will have this
extra bonus to make some staff upgrades or for transfers...Usually is not a
huge amount of money, but it can be useful for some shopping, if you know
what I mean...

[*] INTERNATIONAL CUP BONUS
    -----------------------

If your team plays, say the UEFA Champions League, or any other cup where are
 teams from other countries, and you actually win it, you will make yourself
with this bonus.

[*] EXTRA BONUS
    -----------

This is something that will change from sponsor to sponsor.  Some will give
you this bonus if you have the top scorer of the league, if you have the team
with least goals conceded, if you have a player in the 'Team of the Month'
thing etc.


Remember, this is a very important decision.  Also remember that the only way
you can get rid of a sponsor contract is by being fired, so there's no room
for signing with other sponsor in the middle of the season.


=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=NOTE=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=
NOTE: Since all the sponsors offer different things depending on your club
and how well it did last year, it's impossible to list every sponsor's
offers...
=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-==-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

+----------------------+
|+--------------------+|
||MANAGER MODE CENTRAL||
|+--------------------+|
+----------------------+

After reading all of the above, I guess to are ready to manage your team!

People who played the FIFA 06 will feel home with the menus and the layout.
And most of the options here work exactly the same way they did last year...

If you are new around here, don't worry, I am going to explain everything ;)

The options available here in the menu will look like this:

 +----------------------+
 |  NEXT MATCH          |
 |----------------------|
 |  OFFICE	        |
 |----------------------|
 |  TEAM MANAGEMENT     |
 |----------------------|
 |  STATISTICS	        |
 |----------------------|
 |  TRANSFERS	        |
 |----------------------|
 |  SAVE MANAGER MODE	|
 +----------------------+

+----------+
|NEXT MATCH|
+----------+

When you are ready to play your next match, use this option and you will be
taken into the MATCH SETUP screen.  Your options here are:

 +----------------------+
 |  PLAY MATCH          |
 |----------------------|
 |  VISUAL SIM	        |
 |----------------------|
 |  QUICK SIM	        |
 |----------------------|
 |  MANAGE YOUR TEAM    |
 |----------------------|
 |  TICKET PRICE        |
 +----------------------+


PLAY MATCH
==========
The PLAY MATCH option will take you directly into the pitch.  Be sure to
manage your team before using this option, or you will have to leave the game
and it will automatically result in a loss...  This is specially painful if
you have the AutoSave option ON, so be careful with that.

VISUAL SIM
==========
The VISUAL SIM has been changed from the last year's one.  Now you will
have an on-screen narrated game, where you can adjust the speed of the game.
You can't do anything from here, just sit down and read what happens. If your
team is not doing well you can intervene, which will take you into the match
in the same minute it was in the Visual Sim. This will be easy for those
familiar with games like Championship Manager.

QUICK SIM
=========
The QUICK SIM option will just generate automatically the result of the
game. That's it, you can't intervene, it will just give you the result and
there's nothing you can do about it. Now, how is this result going to be
generated?  It's not a certain thing, but I believe that it is generated
depending on your team's chemistry and how many stars it & the other team
has.

MANAGE YOUR TEAM
================
MANAGE YOUR TEAM will allow you to make last-minute changes to your line up
or your substitutes, as well with your kick takers and man marking setup.

TICKET PRICE
============
Here you can set the ticket price quickly, without going into the FINANCIAL
PREDICTION menu. You have three options: Low, Medium & High.

More on ticket price later in the FAQ...

+------+
|OFFICE|
+------+

There are many things you can do in your office:

 +-----------------------+
 |  CALENDAR             |
 |-----------------------|
 |  SCOUTING	         |
 |-----------------------|
 |  YOUTH ACADEMY        |
 |-----------------------|

 |-----------------------|
 |  FINANCIAL PREDICTION |
 |-----------------------|

 |-----------------------|
 |  CURRENCY	         |
 +-----------------------+

CALENDAR
========
On the calendar you can see all the matches you have to play in a month,
as well with all the fixtures for those dates.  There's not much to say
about this anyway...


SCOUTING
========
This is the screen you want to look at when you are looking for new, fresh
talent. Keep in mind that the players that this scout will find are
unknown and talented young boys, and that the quality of the results
depends on your Staff (see the next sections for details on this).

There are a few things you need to specify when sending your scout:

LOCATION
""""""""
You need to specify which part of the world you want your scout to look for
new talent.  I was asked before if the region you look at has something to
do with the skills the players has, and I would say no, but I haven't done
any research within the game to support this, so I will just stick to my
answer for now...  Anyway, the regions available for searching are:

[*] England
[*] France
[*] Germany
[*] Netherlands
[*] Italy
[*] Spain
[*] Rest of Europe
[*] Africa
[*] Americas
[*] Asia/Oceania

ROLE
""""
If you are looking for a specific position, you can select it here.  If you
are just looking for any new talent, just leave it as 'Any'.

POSITION
""""""""
If you selected a role, then you may want to select a position too, and it
will depend completely on the role you picked before.

DURATION
""""""""
You need to pay special attention here.  The duration of the scout will
directly influence the results of the search.  The deeper you search, the
better results you will find.

After sending your scout, you can only wait.  Depending on the duration
you selected, it will take from a couple of weeks to one month, or even
more, so be patient.  You will be informed of the results (if there's any)
after your matches.


YOUTH ACADEMY
=============
This is one of the new features of the FIFA 07 Manager Mode.  And I have to
say that is a very interesting one.

What is it for? Think of it as your young reserves team, and they are
waiting for a chance of jumping into the first team.

How does it work? You have a list of available players, and you can see
their stats. And there are two things you can do with them, sign any of
them for your team, or let them in the list for more time. It's like a
free scouting service!

Not all the players in this list will sign with you,
so don't be surprised if you try to sign a player and they decline your
offer! But don't worry, you can always use the Scouting option if you need!


STAFF UPGRADES
==============
One of the most important things you have to take care of is about your
staff.  You will have to depend on them for a lot of things, so you better
make sure that you have the best staff you can.

Each staff member has 10 levels, and upgrading each level will cost you
some of you budget, so schedule your upgrades if you don't want to bankrupt
your team!

There are 8 staff members, which are as follows:

STRIKER COACH
"""""""""""""
This staff member will focus in striker training. If you want to have your
strikers in good shape, you need to upgrade this staff member.

MIDFIELDER COACH
""""""""""""""""
This staff will train your midfielders exclusively. If you want to have your
midfielders in good shape, you need to upgrade this staff member.

DEFENCE COACH
"""""""""""""
As with the strikers and midfielders, this coach will focus on training
your defence. If you want to have your
defenders in good shape, you need to upgrade this staff member.

GOALKEEPER COACH
""""""""""""""""
This is a very important one.  You want a class goalkeeper, you better
invest on this coach.

NEGOTIATOR
""""""""""
If you want to make some big transfers, you need to upgrade this staff
member as much as you can.  If your negotiator level is down, most of the
players won't come to your team.  Keep that in mind.

SCOUT
"""""
Upgrading this staff member will help you to improve your scouting results,
meaning in more talented young players.

MEDICAL STAFF
"""""""""""""
Pay special attention to this one. If you don't want your players to be
fatigued after every match, you need to upgrade this staff member.  Or if
you don't want to lose your players for too long when they get injured,
this staff member will help you to reduce the time they are off.

STADIUM MANAGER
"""""""""""""""
The size of your stadium determines how much tickets you can sell, so this
upgrade will pay return you a lot of money in the long term. Note that
this is by far the most expensive upgrade of them all. If you are planning
on upgrading this, you might want to make sure that you won't run out of
money for paying your players.


SPONSOR DETAILS
===============
Did you forgot what was on the contract you signed at the beginning of the
season?  This option will show you the contract, so you can review your
pending assignments with your sponsor.


MANAGER HISTORY
===============
This screen will show you all your achievements during your career. There
are some statistics and records about you. It may be worth looking after
a few seasons to see your past performance.


FINANCIAL PREDICTION
====================
Is important that you understand what this screen does.  First of all,
everything you do here doesn't have any effect in any other side, since
this is only like a tool that will help you planning your budget and seeing
how your finances will evolve, depending on a couple of things.

This screen is divided in three boxes.  The first one, the one in the upper
left part of the screen is the PREDICTED EXPENSES, the second one is right
below the first one, is the INCOME box, and the last one is the BUDGET.

PREDICTED EXPENSES
""""""""""""""""""
This is just a prediction.  Keep in mind that this is just affected by what
you've done in the past, so if you keep moving your transfers and doing
staff upgrades the info displayed on this box will change.

INCOME
""""""
Now, this is the box that you can interact with.  See the A button next to
the Tickets field?  If you press A, it will show you how much your income
funds vary depending on the price of the tickets.
Note that a HIGH price doesn't mean more incoming funds, so figure out
which level price is the one that gives you more revenue.  Usually at the
beginning of the season on any new team you will have to set the price to
MEDIUM or even LOW, so check this screen always at the beginning of the
season, and as you gradually gain more reputation and fan respect, you can
check here if you can step to the next ticket price.

BUDGET
""""""
This is the result of the last two boxes.  If you have more expenses than
incoming funds, you will have red numbers here, so you better plan wisely
your transfers and set a right ticket price, so you can balance this.

As you can see, this screen can be a very useful tool if used correctly, so
don't forget to check this often and see how your finances are going!


BOARD EXPECTATIONS
==================
This shows you a summary of the expectations the Board of Directors has on
you.  You can see your current results, and compare them with the list of
expectations.  Also you can see the comments the Board has about your work,
but note that these comments will only show up after the end of the season.


CURRENCY
========
This isn't is even a screen, is just a button actually. It will allow you
to change the currency used on the game. You can cycle through pounds,
euros or dollars.

+---------------+
|TEAM MANAGEMENT|
+---------------+

This screen is another big section, and unlike the Office, you control here
the issues regarding your squad and your players' contracts.

You have a menu here, which looks something like this:

 +-----------------------+
 |  SQUAD                |
 |-----------------------|
 |  PLAYER GROWTH        |
 |-----------------------|
 |  KICK TAKERS          |
 |-----------------------|
 |  EDIT KIT NUMBER      |
 |-----------------------|
 |  PLAYER CONTRACTS     |
 |-----------------------|
 |  CONTRACT ALERTS      |
 |-----------------------|
 |  EXPORT TEAM		 |
 +-----------------------+


SQUAD
=====
This option lets you change your current team line-up, as well the
substitutes for every match, also the reserves.  You need to come here and
check your players fatigue after every match.  Full green fatigue bars are
the best, while red empty are the worst.

You might want to avoid having red or yellow fatigue bars on your line-up
team.

Also note that on the right side of the screen you have by default your
current formation.  You can cycle through the available formations by
pressing the Black/White buttons.

Pressing the Left/Right triggers will take you to another options on the
right side of the screen.

The COMPARISON option will give you the chance of compare two players
stats. Just press A and the stats for that players will lock, and you can
move to any other player while still having the first player's stats on
the screen.

The CHEMISTRY option will display some attributes like Morale, Team
Experience and Preferred Position for every player.  This is specially
useful if you are trying to improve your Team Chemistry.


PLAYER GROWTH
=============
As you may have already know, this year one of the new features of the
Manager Mode is that your players will have a dynamic growth in their
stats, meaning that you will actually be able to see how are they
developing after every match.

After every match you will see how many XP points (experience) he gained,
this depending completely on how many minutes he played.  When a player
reaches 100 XP points, they don't necessarily go up 1 point in their
overall skill.  Sometimes they remain the same overall, but increases in
1 point other stats like stamina, sprint speed or composure. Although
this could not be enough to gain 1 point in their overall skill.

Well, at this screen you can see more detailed information about this. On
the left side of the screen you have your team roster, and as you move
through your players, you will see that on the right side of the screen
you have a chart on your player growth (current and future).

Pressing the Right/Left trigger will advance or return the X axis (years).

Note that you can only see a prediction on the next 2 years from where you
are, so that tells you that the stats for the players aren't static,
giving you the chance to improve greatly those stats through the years.


KICK TAKERS
===========
This is just like the option you have when you are in the NEXT MATCH
option. This will just tell the game which players will take your
corner kicks, free kicks and penalty kicks.  You better configure this
before starting the match, because it's a little annoying to do it
during the match (you can cycle through your squad to take a free
kick or corner kick by pressing the White button and then moving the
left stick).


EDIT KIT NUMBER
===============
There's this chart with all the available numbers you can assign to your
players.  The numbers in red are the numbers that are already taken.
You can change your kit numbers anytime you want, no matter if you are
in the middle of the season.


PLAYER CONTRACTS
=================
You must pay special attention to this section. You have your team's
complete roster here, and all you will see here is information regarding
your players contracts.

You can renew your players contracts in this section.  No matter if a
player still has 2 or 3 years in his contract, if you want to boost his
morale, or if you are getting too many buy offers from other teams,
and if for some reason you don't want to sell him, renew his contract and
that will be a clear signal for other teams trying to buy that player.

Note that the maximum length a contract can be is 5 years. You can not
extend a contract more than that.

If you don't renew a player contract and it expires, you still have the
chance of signing him at the end of the season.

Now, be aware that it won't be always easy to renew a contract.  Sometimes
players will want some special treatment in order to renew contract with
you.  Usually raising the fees a little will help, or offer him an
extra bonus for goals scored (for strikers and midfielders) or for clean
sheets (defenders and goalkeepers).

When re-signing a player, the screen will have this options:

RESIGNING YEARS
"""""""""""""""
How many more years you want to sign this player with your team.
Remember, you can't sign a player for more than 5 years.

PLAYER SALARY PER GAME
""""""""""""""""""""""
How much this player will receive for every match he plays, no matter
if he plays the entire match, or just 5 minutes.

PER CLEAN SHEET (GK, DF)
""""""""""""""""""""""""
This is a percentage value.  In this case is applied only for defenders
and goalkeepers. This percentage can vary from 5%, 10% or 15%.  Use
this option only if you have tried raising the salary and still don't
want to resign with you.

GOAL BONUS (ST, MF)
"""""""""""""""""""
This is also a percentage value too. This will only apply for strikers
and midfielders as stated before.  Same rules as above, use this only
if you need it (specially if you are signing a player that scores many
goals per season).


After you have filled these fields, and press advance, the player will tell
you if he accepts or rejects your offer.  If you get your offer rejected,
you need to wait a couple of matches before you can strike another offer
to that same player.

When trying with a player that already rejected your offer, raise a little
bit your previous offer, also include some clean sheet or goal bonus.


CONTRACT ALERTS
===============
If you have players with just 1 year of contract remaining, this screen
will warn you about that.  You can only renew those player contracts if
they are not retiring.  If a player is retiring they will have a sign
next to their picture, meaning that you can not renew his contract.
Note that this screen will only show you which players have this
problem, but you need to go to PLAYER CONTRACTS for renewing those
contracts (see the next sections for that).


EXPORT TEAM
===========
COMMING SOON!

+----------+
|STATISTICS|
+----------+

The menu for this section looks like this:

   +----------------------+
   | LEADERBOARD          |
   |----------------------|
   | PLAYER STATS         |
   |----------------------|
   | XXX PLAYOFFS*        |
   |----------------------|
   | LEAGUE TABLE         |
   +----------------------+

*This option will depend on the league you are playing. Some leagues have
playoffs, and some others don't, so this could vary from one league to
another.

Let's explain these options then...


LEADERBOARD
===========
This option is actually just several charts.  You will find here:

[*] Top Scorers
[*] Average Goals/Game
[*] Assists
[*] Clean Sheets
[*] Yellow Cards
[*] Red Cards


PLAYER STATS
============
Now, this is the thing that dissapoints me.  I would expect some better
compilated information, but is just a bunch of numbers in screen, and
the column headers aren't even well explained, so I won't struggle with
that here.


LEAGUE TABLE
============
This is the classic league table, where you can see the current
standings for the league you are playing.  Matches played, wins, loses,
draws, everything is here.  Not much to say really.


XXX PLAYOFFS
============
If the league you play has a playoff system, you will see here the
match legs, and you can cycle through the different stages.


XXX CUP
=======
If you are playing any kind of cup in the league you are, you can see
the match legs here. Or if the cup has an elimination round (like ECC)
you can see the group stage and then cycle through the next rounds.

+---------+
|TRANSFERS|
+---------+

This has to be one of your top priorities
when managing a team. Why?  Because without new and talented players your
team will always be missing something.

If you played FIFA 06 you will feel very comfortable with this transfer
system, because it's almost the same thing.  A few new nice things have
been added, but basically it's the same transfer system than last year, so
I expect having no trouble explaining this again.

The first thing you need to know is that you can't
make transfers all year long, so you need to stick to the transfer windows,
which usually are from July to August, and then all January long.  If you
are planning on getting that big transfer I would recommend you planning
your finances very carefully.

It's normal to get excited about this, spending a lot of money in one player,
but not doing wise business could ruin a complete season, so you can't
tell that I didn't warn you!  Remember, always keep a balance between
transfers, staff upgrades and contract renewals.

And well, with that said I believe that we are ready to move into the
transfer menu...

   +------------------------+
   | TRANSFER MARKET        |
   |------------------------|
   | NEGOTIATION HISTORY    |
   |------------------------|
   | CLUB TRANSFER LIST     |
   |------------------------|
   | TRANSFER SUMMARY       |
   |------------------------|
   | SHORTLIST              |
   +------------------------+


TRANSFER MARKET
===============
Well, think about this like if this were a supermarket...  I know, it's not
the best way to explain it, but let me get to the point.  You don't want to
waste your time looking in 20 different places, you want to see what's
available to buy in a single place... So you need to come here.

In this window you will have a compilated list of players available for
transfer.

At the top of the window is displayed some information you should take a
look at. It's your budget and your remaining bids. Also you can see the
status of the player you are currently looking at (could be for sale or
for loan). It should look something like this:

   +----------------------------------------+
   |					    |
   |   BIDS REMAINING:  X		    |
   |   BUDGET:  $ XXX,XXX		    |
   |   STATUS:  For Sale / For Loan	    |
   |					    |
   +----------------------------------------+

WHAT ARE THE BIDS?
""""""""""""""""""
You have a limit on how many times you can try to buy a player every week. I
think this is a great idea, because otherwise people would just flow the
market trying to get as many players as they can, so this is a fantastic way
to reduce that.

IS THERE A WAY TO GET MORE BIDS?
""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
Yes, don't use your bids one week and it will accumulate with the next week
ones, so you will have lots of bids after a while if you don't use them all
at the beginning.

IS THERE A DIFFERENCE IF I USE DOUBLE BIDS WHEN SIGNING A PLAYER?
"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""""
Yes. If you use double bid when offering a contract to a player, the
player will take notice of that, meaning that you have a serious offer for
him, so that should make a difference. Always remember to have a negotiator
with a high level, otherwise this wouldn't make much of a difference.


After explaining the bids, the only thing remaining is to remind you that
you can cycle through pages of available players using your Left/Right
trigger.


So you came to the transfer window and didn't find what you wanted?  Don't
worry about that, the TRANSFER MARKET screen only shows the players that
are available within your home league. You can search for more players
through all the world.

To access this option you need to press the Search button at the bottom of
the transfer market screen.

Once you press that button, a new menu will show up and the TRANSFER MARKET
menu will fade in the background.

Now, you need to know what you are looking for if you want best results,
although you could find almost anything here.  Actually you can see all the
players in the game if you want to...

Also note that you can look for players that aren't even listed for
transfer, this meaning that no matter if they are not listed for transfer
you can still bid for them (although it will be harder to sign a player
that is not listed for transfer).

These are the search options:
"""""""""""""""""""""""""""""

[*] LEAGUE (Leave it as "Any" if you want to search all the leagues)

[*] TEAM (You can specify a team or leave it as "Any")

[*] ATTRIBUTE

You can search for a very specific condition in a player...  these are
the search options for this option:

	[*] OVERALL
	[*] ACCELERATION
	[*] AGGRESSION
	[*]SPRINT SPEED
	[*] STAMINA
	[*] STRENGTH
	[*] MARKING
	[*] TACKLING
	[*] BALL CONTROL
	[*] DRIBBLING
	[*] CROSSING
	[*] HEADING
	[*] SHORT PASSING
	[*] LONG PASSING
	[*] FINISHING
	[*] SHOT POWER
	[*] LONG SHOTS
	[*] REACTIONS
	[*] COMPOSURE
	[*] REFLEXES (GK)
	[*] HANDLING (GK)
	[*] POSITIONING (GK)
	[*] FREE KICKS
	[*] WEAK FOOT ABILITY
	[*] DIVING (GK)

[*] MIN (ATTRIBUTE SELECTED)

[*] MAX (ATTRIBUTE SELECTED)

[*] ROLE (DEF, MID, ATT)

[*] POSITION (The specific position in the role you selected)

[*] PLAYING STYLE

Also you can search for a specific playing style, which are:

	[*] SHOT STOPPER
	[*] TARGET MAN
	[*] CLINICAL STRIKER
	[*] COUNTER ATTACKER
	[*] DRIBBLER
	[*] MIDFIELD MAESTRO (MAESTRO = MASTER in Spanish)
	[*] DEFENSIVE MIDFIELDER
	[*] BOX TO BOX
	[*] BALL WINNER
	[*] SWEEPER
	[*] STOPPER
	[*] WING BACKS
	[*] ATTACKING WINGER

Note that this styles are available for every player, regardless the
role or the position you selected, so this list won't vary.

[*] STATUS

This is the one thing you should look at.  You can specify the status for
the player you want, and if you add this to all the options I just listed
above... Well, you can see the Search potential this tool has!
This are the options you can select here:

	[*] AVAILABLE FOR TRANSFER (Only listed players will be shown)
	[*] AVAILABLE FOR LOAN (Only listed players will be shown)
	[*] FREE AGENT (Players without a team)
	[*] OFFER ALREADY MADE
	[*] ANY

After filling all these fields, click advance, and the search
will begin.  If you have luck the background will highlight again and you
will have a list with the players found that matched your specifications.

If you didn't have luck, you can search again (changing a few options to
see if you have luck with that, or you can just cancel the search and
return to the TRANSFER MARKET screen.


SIGNING A PLAYER
""""""""""""""""
well, by now I guess you already know how to search for a player, so now I
will explain how to actually make an offer to a player.

At the contract screen you can specify the exact terms of the contract you
are offering to that player, so read them carefully and make sure that you
understand what you are offering him.

These are the options:

[*] STATUS

You need to specify what kind of contract you are offering him.  It can be
a BUY contract, or a LOAN contract.  Note that if you are willing to buy
a player, you will need to also pay a transfer fee.  If you just want to
loan that player, you won't be asked for a transfer fee, but keep in mind
that if you sign that player, he will remain on your team until the end
of the season, and then he will return to his original team.

[*] TRANSFER FEE

This is the fee that you need to pay to the player's team in order to let
him go to your team.  If you already made an offer for that player and
things didn't go well, you might want to try raising this a little bit.

[*] PLAYER SALARY PER GAME

How much you will pay to this player for every match he plays.  Even if he
plays just a couple of minutes, you will have to pay him this fee.  Never
ever place an offer with a lower per game fee than the original that is
already place for default on the player's contract.  He will turn your
offer down most of the times.

[*] CONTRACT LENGTH

You will need to define this only if you are trying to buy the player,
remember that in LOAN contracts you already know that the player will play
with your team just until the end of the season.  Now, the general rule is
that you can offer longer contract lengths to younger players, while in
veterans you will want to offer them just 1 or 2 years, specially if they
are already over 30 years old.

[*] # OF BIDS

If you want to be taken seriously by a player, you
need to use double bid. So when use a single bid?  When you already have
high skilled players on your team, it seems like new players tend to come
easier to your team, so you can use then just one bid on those cases.

[*] CLEAN SHEET BONUS (GK, DEF)

This can be an extra bonus you can offer, but be careful, because if
the player's salary is already high, and you offer him say 15%, you will
need to pay him a lot more money...  Worse if you have several players with
this contract conditions in your team!  Use this wisely.

[*] GOAL BONUS (ST, MF)

Same as above.  Use this only as a bonus for a player that is getting hard
to sign.


After you submit the offer, you need to wait until the next match is over,
and then you will receive an email from your negotiator, telling you if
you signed that player or not.

If you couldn't sign him, see below...


NEGOTIATION HISTORY
===================
You must know that not all of the times you will succesfully sign a player,
specially on the first attempt, so you need to learn to understand this
section to modify your offer and learn what was the factor that made that
player don't want to sign with you.

Please note that you will not be able to use this screen until you make an
offer out to a player.

We'll discuss here how to understand the information on this screen.

At first, you will have at least one player on the list, but it could be
more. You might want to check that there are some smileys on the right
side of the name of the players, telling you how satisfied were they with
your last offer.

Once you scroll through the players, you will notice that on the right
side of the screen are the details of your last offer to that player,
but the interesting stuff here is what you can do by clicking the
advance button. Doing so will take you to the RESULTS screen that
will indicate how close or far you were from signing this player.

This is not a hard thing to understand. It's a half-circle graphic where
you can see an arrow telling you where your offer landed. These are the
three colors of the graphic:

RED - NOT EVEN CLOSE
""""""""""""""""""""
Ok, there are two chances here.  Either you tried to sign a player that
is way out of your reach, or your offer was lower than he was already
receiving in his current team, so try again raising his salary or offering
him a bonus, maybe that will help.

ORANGE - GETTING CLOSE
""""""""""""""""""""""
Ok, your offer wasn't that good, but it didn't sucked either!  You need to
use double bid if you didn't at first, and raise a little bit your
previous offer.

GREEN -  SIGNED
"""""""""""""""
No matter if the arrow just landed just passed the orange color, or if it
reached the 100%, you just signed this player. That's the only thing
that matters. Well done!


Always look to this graphic when you are trying to sign a player, it will
pretty much tell you all you need to know to successfully sign a player
(If you didn't sign it in the 1st try).


CLUB TRANSFER LIST
==================
So you need a little cash?  Have too much players warming the bench?  You
might want to sell them or just loan them to other teams.

At this screen you will have your complete team roster, and you can see
some details like their overall skill, age, price and morale.

So, the question is...

HOW DO I SELL/LOAN OUT A PLAYER?

If you want to sell a player, you need to set his status to SELL, and for
that you just need to click on that player, then click on the Change Status
button. The screen will fade and a tiny option will pop up. You have just
two options, set the status to FOR SALE, or FOR LOAN.

And that's it, all you can do is wait.  Sometimes after a match you will
receive offers from other teams.  But note that this is not a rule, if you
set a player's status to SELL/LOAN it doesn't mean that all the other teams
will be automatically sending offers for these players.

Also note that the player's morale will drop by 5 after you change his
status to LOAN/SALE.


TRANSFER SUMMARY
================
You couldn't sign a player and now you want to know who did? Or you just
want to see how is the market going nowadays? This is the section for you.

Now, let me tell you that there's not a lot of things you can do here, is
just like a report from all the transfers being made during the current
transfer window in all of the leagues of your current manager savegame.

The details you can see here are:

[*] SURNAME
[*] PRICE
[*] FROM
[*] TO

Other than that, all you can do is just see the Bio for those players,
change the sorting of the list, or just search by Surname...

If you want to do something else, you should go back to the TRANSFER MARKET
screen...


SHORTLIST
=========

If you paid your scout to go looking for new players, and you weren't so
sure about signing or not a player, you probably send those players to this
list. And is actually a great new addition to FIFA 07, since you can
save the findings of your scout to sign them later, something that you
couldn't do on FIFA 06!

When you have players waiting on this list, your only options are sign the
player or let him more time in the list.  You can't change the contract
options, since they don't have a team behind them to negotiate.

So, the next time you receive news from your scout, and you don't have the
money in that right moment, or you just want to see if there's something
better, send the players to this list, they will be here for the rest of
the season, so don't worry ;)

||UNITED KINGDOM: CHALLENGES||
|+--------------------------+|
+----------------------------+

+--------------------+
|SCENARIO CHALLENGE 1|
+--------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Win the match with your club having 0 subs available

REWARDS:
========
250 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
Hmm...this one is pretty easy; just the normal match except that you don't
have any subs. Easy to win...

+---------------------+
|HAT-TRICK CHALLENGE 1|
+---------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Score a Hat-Trick against any club from the United Kingdom.

REWARDS:
========
500 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
I recommend you do this challenge in Amateur difficulty. One easy way to
avoid 2 goals scored by a single player is to sub a player as soon as he
scores.

+--------------------+
|UNDERDOG CHALLENGE 1|
+--------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Defeat a 4+ star club from the United Kingdom with any 2 star club in
Semi-Pro difficulty.

REWARDS:
========
500 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
Hmm now this can get a bit difficult. To make it easy you can do two things:
either change the first team of the 4+ star team you're playing against
replacing the nice players with bad ones or you can also alter the scenario
settings a bit to make it easier; change the red cards, injuries & yellow
cards in opposition to the max. Hope it helps.

|SCENARIO CHALLENGE 2|
+--------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Win the match with your club having 0 subs and 2 injuries.

REWARDS:
========
500 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
This is pretty easy. Just the normal match with the exception that there are
no subs available and 2 of your players are hobbling.

+----------------------+
|POSSESSION CHALLENGE 1|
+----------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Acheive 75%+ possession in Professional difficulty against a club from
Western Europe.

REWARDS:
========
500 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
The key to win this challenge is just to keep passing the ball around within
your half. Don't aim for a win here since if you score/don't score you'll
just give away possession. If the opponent gets a goal don't go chasing! Just
stay calm and only keep passing the ball around your players.

+---------------------+
|LATE GOAL CHALLENGE 1|
+---------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Score with a player subbed in after 85+ minutes in Semi-Pro difficulty.

REWARDS:
========
750 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
When the timer goes above 85, then only order one of your players to get
subbed and bring your sub in. I suggest you sub all of your attackers and one
of your midfielders, that way you won't have to worry whether the player
that's about to score a goal is from the first team or a sub.

+--------------------+
|5 MINUTE CHALLENGE 1|
+--------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Score in under 5 minutes against a club from Western Europe.

REWARDS:
========
500 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
As soon as the whistle goes and the game starts, be on your most aggressive
side. Try to score as quickly as you can but don't get too hyper or nervous
since you may over-power your shot and miss the goal. If you didn't succeed
in scoring a goal under 5 minutes then as soon as the 5 minutes are over,
restart the match, don't waste your time by playing the whole match nor
nothing!

2nd half.

REWARDS:
========
500 Points

HINTS/TIPS:

Be on the aggressive side but try not to commit many fouls or get cards. As
soon as you gain the 3 goal lead, be on the defensive side straight away.

+---------------------+
|SHOOT-OUT CHALLENGE 1|
+---------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Win a penalty kick shootout against a club from Southern Europe.

REWARDS:
========
500 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
A penaly shoot-out can sometimes be difficulty. You might have to try this
challenge more than once to succeede. When you are the kicker try to do a
fake shot so that the keeper will have less chances of stopping the ball.
When you are the keeper, anticipate your opponent's move and dive to that way
as soon as ke kicks the ball. To get a master at winning penalty (whether you
are at the recieving end or you are taking the kick), I recommend you go to
Practice Mode and practice penalty shoot-outs a bit.

+----------------------+
|POSSESSION CHALLENGE 2|
+----------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Achieve over 75% possession in Amateur difficulty against a club from
Southern Europe.

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Win by 5 goals in Amateur difficulty against a club from Southern Europe.

REWARDS:
========

might seem a big thing. Just be on the aggressive from the 1st second.

|SCENARIO CHALLENGE 5|
+--------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Start a match in the 1st half of extra time down 1-2 and win.

REWARDS:
========
250 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
This challenge also involves getting pretty aggressive since you only have 15
minutes of game time to score 2 goals. Try not to give the possession away
easily and also try not to give free-kicks as it will allow the opposition to
score, making it even more harder the complete the challenge.

+--------------------+
|SCENARIO CHALLENGE 4|
+--------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Start a match in the 85th minute with the scoreline as 0-0 and win.

REWARDS:
========
500 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
Be very-very aggressive in the match from the start as you have roughly 5
minutes of game time. Just pray that you get as much as Extra Time as
possible!

+---------------------+
|SHOOT-OUT CHALLENGE 2|
+---------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Win a penalty kick shootout in World Class difficulty against a club from
Central Europe.

REWARDS:
========
1,000 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
Now this is really-really difficulty. Winning a penalty shoot-out in World
Class difficulty really takes some practice, skill, concentration and
determination. You might have to try this more than half a dozen times. For
me it took about 7 tries to win this challenge.

+--------------------+
|5-MINUTE CHALLENGE 2|

||THE AMERICAS: CHALLENGES||
|+------------------------+|
+--------------------------+

+--------------------+
|SCENARIO CHALLENGE 7|
+--------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Start a match in the 2nd half of extra time with the score tied and win.

REWARDS:
========
250 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
This challenge also involves getting pretty aggressive since you only have 15
minutes of game time to score 2 goals. Try not to give the possession away
easily and also try not to give free-kicks as it will allow the opposition to
score, making it even more harder the complete the challenge.

+--------------------+
|STAY AHEAD CHALLENGE|
+--------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Score and maintain a 2 goal lead against a club from the Americas.

REWARDS:
========
750 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
Now this challenge also takes some head to complete. You MUST have to
maintain a 2 goal lead. If you take a lead more than of 2 goals, you'll loose
the challenge. So I recommend you go aggressive from the start and when you
get the 2 goal lead then go on the defensive straight away, without making
any further attempts at the opposition's goal. Try to score again only if the
opposition manage to score a goal.

+--------------------+
|SCENARIO CHALLENGE 6|
+--------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Win the match with your opponent having a 0-1 lead.

REWARDS:
========
250 Points

HINTS/TIPS:

Be on the aggressive to ensure you win this challenge. Once the scoreline
reads 2-1, go on the defensive.

+-------------------+
|PASSING CHALLENGE 1|
+-------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Achieve 75%+ passing in professional diffculty against a club from the
Americas and win.

REWARDS:
========
750 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
This match can be a little difficult. I recommend that early on in the game
you be as aggressive as possible and try to score 2 goals (or 1 atleast).
Then later, like in the second half, remain inside your own half and keep
passing to your players to build up your passing percentage. Remember that
your passing percentage is determined by the number of passes successfully
completed by you (i.e. you sucessfully passed to a player of your own instead
of your opposition). Your passing percent will go down if you accidentaly
passed the ball to your opponent.

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Win a match with a clean sheet against a club from Scandinavia.

REWARDS:
========
250 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
I don't think you require any tips/hints for this challenge since this is
much of a normal match and the clubs in Scandinavian region are pretty week.

+--------------------+
|SCENARIO CHALLENGE 9|
+--------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Win the match with your opponent leading 3-0.

REWARDS:
========
1,000 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
As with some other challenges, this one also involves getting very aggressive
as you are trailing by 3 goals. After you score 4 goals, go straight on the
defensive and don't give any free kicks to your opponent since it will give
them a change to score and then you'll have to score again.

+-------------------+
|PASSING CHALLENGE 2|
+-------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Achieve 85%+ in passing in Amateur difficulty against a Scandinavian club.

REWARDS:
========
250 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
This is very easy. Just keep pressing the S button to pass the ball around
your players to build up your passing percentage. Since this doesn't even
involve winning, it'll be a piece of cake for you. Remember the higher the
successful completed passes of your team, the higher will be your passing
percentage.

Hmm...1 man down and it's 10 vs 11 eh? Well, it really doesn't matter if you
lost a man. Just try not to get another red card and you'll be fine. Pretty
much of a normal match except this.

+---------------------+
|FAIR PLAY CHALLENGE 1|
+---------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Win a match without any bookings in Professional difficulty against a
Scandinavian club.

REWARDS:
========
500 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
Now this can get difficult at times. First of all, it's absolutely NOT
recommended to use the A key (i.e. the sliding tackle) as if you are off
target and you hit the player you might get a card and that's THAT! Even use
your conservative tackle (D key) conservatively.

+--------------------+
|ACCURACY CHALLENGE 1|
+--------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Achieve 90% shots on target in Semi-Pro difficulty against a Scandinavian
club.

REWARDS:
========
500 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
Hehe this one is funny, you don't have to win and you only have to get 90%
shots on target in Semi-Pro. Now that's what I call easy. When scoring try to
get near to the goalpost to score so that you'll have allmost 100% chances of
your shot getting on taget. It's ideal that you get your first shot on
target. After that you'll have 100% shots on target (since you only unleashed
1 shot). Now don't attempt a shot on the goal anymore and you'll win the
challenge. Really easy!

|LATE GOAL CHALLENGE 2|
+---------------------+

OBJECTIVES:
===========
Score with a player subbed in after 75+ minutes in Professional difficulty.

REWARDS:
========
500 Points

HINTS/TIPS:
===========
Since this is Professional diffculty and you only have 15 mins to score (and
that too with a sub!), it can get a little hard. I recommend you use all your
subs once the timer goes above 75. It's ideal if you sub all of your strikers
and 1 of your mids. I allways use the 4-3-3 position in this kind of
challenge since then it's much less likelihood of a non-sub to score a goal.

as your player scores, sub that player. This tactic will ensure that there
are no repititive goals.

MORE INFO:
==========
After you complete all the challenges from any 2 regions, a new and the 5th
difficulty level is unlocked. The level is: Legendary and truly it stands by
its name. It's far more difficult than World Class, so you can now imagine
how difficult it can be to beat the computer on this level! Actually the only
difficult thing in this level is that the opponent GK are too good to be
real. So it's pretty hard to score goals...

The easiest zones to complete according to me are: United Kingdom and
Southern Europe.

||MANAGER MODE||
|+------------+|
+--------------+

+----------------------------------------+
|TRICK TO GET A CONTRACT RENEWED FOR FREE|
+----------------------------------------+

In the second transfer period, loan out any player whose contract is going to
expire in 1 year. When he returns to your club at the end of the season, he
would have a 2 year contract with the same wage!

+-----------------------------+
|EASY MONEY and EASY TRANSFERS|
+-----------------------------+

Here's how to earn some easy money in the manager mode:

Play a season in the manager mode...then, at the point where it's the
last match of the season --->

[1] Save and backup the career...and then play the last match...pick the same
team and proceed to the next season.

[2] Now as soon as the new season starts go to the transfer market, then, go to
the Search Players screen. Select all leagues, all teams, all players
(available for transfer and others as well). Now when the search results
display, highlight(select) the price coloumn and sort by ascending. Now you
will find a lot of players with 0 Transfer Fee (Free Agents)
purchase all the players with stats of 80 and above!!

[3] Once you sign these players. You can either keep them or sell them again for
a good amount of money!! Usually players with stats of 80 and above and ages
between 20 and 30 transfer for atleast 10 million (I sold Nilmar for 76 Million
, Rooney for 90 Million and Ronaldinho for 102 Million and bought them back
on free transfers within the next 2-3 transfer windows!)

DO THIS AND YOU'LL HAVE AN AWESOME BUDGET TO PLAY WITH...

4)In case you do not get good players, load your previous game save, replay
the last match of the previous season and then the player lists will be
generated again!!

You can use this trick especially to your advantage when your team is below 3
stars. I used this trick when I was managing Barnet (half star with a budget of
about 200k). I kept none of the players whom I bought at the beginning of the
season. Once I sold Rooney for quite some money (thougth it took me quite some
time to negotiate with him - offered him a 400k salary with 15% bonus; lol) and
upgraded my staff and bought new players. Using the same trick, I actually
raised Barnet to a 4 star team in about 8 seasons hehe...

+--------+
|Easy win|
+--------+

Play with the 3-4-3 combination. You will hardly lose any matches, even if
you QuickSim them.

+-------------+
|YOUTH ACADEMY|
+-------------+

Make sure to keep an eye on the Youth Players making their way up through
your youth system. Nurture their talent and you may find the next superstar
coming out of your own Youth Academy!

+----------+
|REAL MONEY|
+----------+

Work hard, manage your budget and pile up some real cash. Once you've saved
up enough money use it to complete the next big transfer. You will find
quickly that every player has his price!

+------------+
|EXPECTATIONS|
+------------+

Every board has different expectations of you. Some have unlimited amounts of
cash but expect you to bring home title after title. Others are more
concerned about the budget or adding an attractive player into the squad.
Choose the right club to match your skills.

+---------+
|GAME OVER|
+---------+

The life of a manager is no walk in the park, your performance will be
constantly assessed by the board of directors. If you don't match their
expectations you will be fired...get fired once too often and your career as
a manager is over!

+--------------+
|NATIONAL SQUAD|
+--------------+

Face the issue every top manager has to deal with: your best players are
chosen to represent their country. They will gain experience playing against
the best players of the world. But they will get fatigued and might come back
injured from trips with their national squad.

+----------+
|VISUAL SIM|
+----------+

Use the Visual Sim to manage your team from the sideline. Adjust your tactics
and formations according to what is happening on the pitch. Be aware of the
performance and fatigue level of every player in order to perform a
substitution.

+-------------+
|PLAYER GROWTH|
+-------------+

Observe how players gain experience and grow like in real life. Find "gems"
that are young and bring them to your club for a small transfer sum. Then
watch their growth and witness how they become the next superstar!

+-------------+
|PLAYER TRAITS|
+-------------+

Please your fans by playing their fan favorite or make them mad by parking
him on the bench. Sort out the players that cause nothing but trouble and
find the ones that are loved by the media.

+--------+
|FINANCES|
+--------+

Before you leave your office don't forget to have a look at the financial
prediction. This screen will give you an indication if you should really
follow through on the latest transfer or rather try to sell a player in order
to show a positive balance at the end of the year.

+--------+
|PRESTIGE|
+--------+

Winning matches and meeting the Board of Directors' objectives will make your
prestige rise. Conversely, losing matches and getting fired will cause it to
fall. So try and keep a high prestige! Players will want to play for your
club and high paying sponsors will seek you out.

ICON FOR PRESTIGE: [Manager Picture accompanied by the Number of arrows
corresponding the prestige level with the number below the arrows]

+--------------+
|TEAM CHEMISTRY|
+--------------+

The Team Chemistry icon in Manager Mode indicates how well your club works
together on the pitch. High Team Chemistry will allow your club to start a
match with some momentum which can be used to overcome a lack of individual
player skill.

ICON FOR TEAM CHEMISTRY: [Two Gears connected together]

+-----------+
|FAN SUPPORT|
+-----------+

The Fan Support icon will show you how well your club is faring in the eyes
of your supporters. Higher Fan Support will allow you to increase ticket
prices and still maintain good levels of attendance. When Fan Support is low,
you may have to decrease prices to attrack fans back to the stadium.

ICON FOR FAN SUPPORT: [A Flag]

+------------+
|JOB SECURITY|
+------------+

This indicator will rise as you win games and prove your skills, but will
fall if you start to lose too many games. Let your Job Security drop too low
and you may find yourself looking for a new job!

ICON FOR JOB SECURITY: [A Lock]

+-------------------+
|PLAYER STATUS ICONS|
+-------------------+

In the Transfer Market, players are identified with several icons indicating
their market status so that you can make an informed decision regarding
possible transfers. Read over the next few tips to find out what each of
those icons mean.

NEGOTIATING
"""""""""""
If you see this icon, it means that you are already in negotiations to
acquire thisplayer. Visit the Negotiation History screen to make adjustments
to your offer, or to cancel the negotiations!

ICON FOR NEGOTIATING: [A Cyclinder denoting a player accompanied with a

pointing right in Blue Color]

AVAILABLE FOR LOAN
""""""""""""""""""
The player is available for loan. You will be responsible for paying the

an arrow pointing right in Yellow Color]

FREE AGENT
""""""""""
The player is not owned by any club. Free agents can be acquired without a
transfer fee, but you must settle on a contract with the player before he
will start playing for your club.

ICON FOR FREE AGENT: [A Cyclinder denoting a player accompanied with an arrow
pointing right in Green Color]

RETIRING
""""""""
The player is going to retire after the end of the current season. You are
unable to change his mind, and therefore must think of a way of replacing the
player for the start of next season.

in Red Color]

I have compiled all these advanced moves from the internet, from some of my
friends and offcourse from myself. Most of these have been tested to be
OK so if you see that the keys here aren't doing what they should do, e-mail
me and I would rectify the problem. Also, since there are so many
combinations, it's allways hard to list all of them. I would especially
appreciate if you could e-mail me a couple of moves of your own!

||FREE KICKS||
|+----------+|
+------------+

Submitted by: Gautam Kaviraj

Free Kick Model of this game is an improved version of the One In
FIFA WC '06!!All you need to do is get the hang of it , then its all
downhill from there! Here's a few Tips :
1.When taking a free kick Towards the post nearer to you-->
Before taking the kick press the direction arrow for just an instant
(this helps with the angle).......use the down arrow + nearer post's
direction(left or right) and tap the shoot button gently....
Once u get the hang of it.... you'll score each and every time!!

2.TAKING FREE KICK TOWARDS THE FARTHER POST
Now use the up arrow plus the direction of the farther post(Left or Right)
and press shoot till the shot-meter is as close to full as possible..and
just when the kick is being released tap the direction button... once you
master this you'll get almost all the kicks in the goal!!

3.GROUNDED KICK
Press the Trigger Run/Tactics Changer Button along with the Shoot Button
this will take a grounded powerful kick....although u'll need to practice
this a bit !!

4)FLOATING KICK
Move your player a bit in the direction opposite to the one you intend
taking the kick in....... Now Press Lob/Slide Button + Shoot + direction

|     PART: 6 - FAQ [FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS]     |
======================================================

If you have any question regarding the game, send me all your queries to
ruchirkc@yahoo.co.in. I will try to answer as quickyl as I can.

If your question is a good one or if I am getting similar questions then I'll
paste it here...

+--------------+
|+------------+|
||MANAGER MODE||
|+------------+|
+--------------+

Q: I had choosen a 4+ star team at the beginning of my career, but I keep
loosing money! How do I quit that team and start all over again with
another team?

A: There's only two ways.  First, you could start a new gamesave, since you
are still in your first season, there's not too much to lose there. If you
don't like that option, then you only have another chance, and is to get
fired.  Yes, it will affect your manager prestige, but I don't see any other
way to get out of that. Just keep losing money and eventually you will get
fired, and the season will end in that moment for you, and you will
automatically be taken to the beginning of the next season, and you will be
able to choose another team and everything will be pretty much the same like
the last time you had to pick a team.


Q: I was looking through my players skills, and found that they were actually
decreasing from year to year.  Is there something I can do about it?

A: No, it's a completely normal reaction. You can't expect to have your
players keeping their skills over the years (especially if they are more than
30 years old). It's like a rollercoaster, you go all the way up, and then at
one point you start going down...


Q: If you fail one of the board's expectations, but make the other 3, are you
definitely going to be fired at the end of the season? Or is it possible to
keep your job?

A: No, you don't have to accomplish all of them.  Of course, if you want to
make sure that you will be asked to stay for another year, you better
complete all of them, but failing on one doesn't necessarily means that you
won't keep your job.


Q: Do I have to wait until the end of the season to extend my players
contracts?

A: No, you can offer a player a contract extention anytime you want. You
don't have to wait transfer windows or the end of the season, the only thing
you should keep in mind that extending contracts costs money, so don't go
around extending everyone's contract!


Q: I had chosen the club juventus and this is my 4th team as a manager. The
club had a good budget of 44 million pounds. But I always keep losing money
even if I played a match in my home ground. I lowered the salaries of the
players, even then, I am still losing money. Maybe I should invest in the
stadium manager ? Please reply as soon as possible.

A: I recommend you invest in your stadium manager if it's below level 7.
Juventus is a large side and you need atleast 500k per match to even out the
salaries. Try selling one of your main players and invest that money in stadium
manager.


Q: How to improve my team chemistry? I see that my team chemistry sometimes
decreases even on winning matches?

A: Just win matches, renew contracts (no need to offer high wages, the players
get a morale boost even if you renewed their contract with a lower wage),
choose the option that increases morale in the memos and offcourse try not to
make a player sit on the bench for weeks. Do all this and your team chemistry
will improve automatically. If you change your line-up too much (like changing
more than 3-4 players before a match) then it might not get into the 80's.
Also, I recommend you play matches and not sim them. Sometimes your team
chemistry just goes down and you can't do anything about it. Even my team's
chem keeps fluctuating from 80-99.


Q: Why is it that I can't buy a player from a rival club? If I can what am I
supposed to do? Do you ever get to manage an international team? Is it possible
to loan a player without him having to be on the loan transfer list? I have
tried to loan players from other teams but I have been unsuccessful, please
help.

A: You can't buy a player from a rival club, no matter what you do. There's no
way to go around it. You never get to manage an international team. I think
it's possible though highly unlikely to loan a player without him having to be
on the loan transfer list. PS: Loaning players is just a waste of money. Just
follow my EASY MONEY and EASY TRANSFERS trick in the TIPS, HINTS and TRICKS
Section and you wont need to loan players anymore.


Q: Thanks for the guide as it helped me loads but I'm having trouble with the
EFA Tournament challenge as I seem to never be entered for it in Manager Mode.
I look on the office calendar as the season starts it's there yet near the end
of the season it just disappears and so I cannot complete the challenge. Can
you please help me and tell me what I should do?

A: Did you stick with the same team for two consecutive seasons? When you
qualify for the EFA, that mean you'll participate in it next year. So inorder
to complete the challenge, you will have to select the same team the next
season also and then you have to win it.


Q: Hi man, I liked reading your FAQ about FIFA2007 but there's still one thing
I don't understand. I bought the game yesterday, and I don't know how to sell
players from my team! I've waited for the transfer season while losing money,
and now that I can make some by selling, I don't know how!! All I seem to be
able of doing is search for players to buy, but to sell players I don't need
seems impossible. Plz help me I'm desperate.

A: In manager mode, go to Transfers --> Club Transfer List. In the club
transfer list you can change the status of your players to either "On Loan or
For Sale". Once you change the status, depending on the skills of the player,
you might or may not get an offer for him. If you get an offer, at the end of a
match, a screen comes up saying so.

||GAMEPLAY||

Q: My question is, are there any tournaments like world cup or something
similar, or  could I create such tournaments so that I play against national
teams, not leagues and their teams.

A: No, you can't create world cup or any such tournaments in FIFA 07. If you
want to play the World Cup buy FIFA World Cup 2006.


Q: I just wanted to know  about the Blue coloured Meter that is displayed
alongside the score display durin FIFA 07 matches.
I wanna know, when that meter fills up or when it empties out? How to keep it
full? Does it have any impact on team chemistry?

A: Unless I am wrong, the blue colored meter goes up and down according to the
performance your team is giving. If you team has got a red card and is losing
then it will be lowest and if you're winning by a nice margin, or if you have
just scored a fabulous goal then it will be up for some time. According to me,
it doesn't have any affect on the match or team chemistry though and you can
pretty much ignore it.


Q: I'm missing one unlocked item, but I have bought everything in fanshop, won
54/54 tourneys, completed 102/102 challenges, played in 46/46 stadiums and I
have 12500 points left. What is this item and where can I find it?

A: I think this is a bug in FIFA 07. Even if you complete all challenges, buy
all things, win all tournaments and do every other possible thing, it will
still show that you still have to unlock one item. EA might have released a
patch to correct this problem. Go to gamespot.com or fifa's official website
and download the patch for fifa. It might rectify the problem.


Keep sending your questions!  ;)
