1) Version History

1.0 - Initial release of this guide.

2) Guide Info

This is a guide to all the teams and leagues in Sports Interactive's
Championship Manager 2001/2002 game for the PC.  CM 01/02 is the last game in
the series that will use the Championship Manager 3 engine - a new engine will
be used for future games in the series.

Just a few notes before we move on...

All stats are based on the data update included with the final patch, 3.9.65.
So if the stats don't match what you have on your copy of CM, it likely means
one of two things; you didn't install the data update that came with 3.9.65,
or you're using a third-party data update.  (There is a 3.9.66 version which is
available to be downloaded and purchased, but I'm under the impression that it
still uses the 3.9.65 data.)

Some cash values for teams are approximated.  The reason for this is that when
starting a new game, the game picks a certain date to start at depending on
which league (or starting season) has been selected.  This could mean that
qualifying rounds for European competitions (which is where most of the money
would come in) have already taken place.  This could throw off the totals for
the teams, so I tried to make the finances as accurate as possible to their
actual value before the funds start rolling in.  The leagues that suffer the
most from this are ones that start in the spring, such as Norway and Russia.
Teams can have massively inflated bank accounts if they reach the Champions Cup
group stage or go far in the UEFA Cup.

There appear to be errors in team expectations for many leagues in the game.
I'll touch on those on a league-by-league basis.  They shouldn't have any
effect on gameplay, however.

You'll notice I haven't included data for teams which aren't immediately
playable right off the bat.  The reason for this is that it would take way too
long, especially in some leagues like Sweden.  Teams that end up getting
promoted into a league are usually a good challenge to play as anyways.

Finally, if there's any important information I'm missing, feel free to e-mail
me with the necessary info or changes.

3) Team/League Information

Here's a rundown of all the different attributes you'll see here:

Club - The short name of the team, abbreviated in some instances.
Expectations - The board's expectations for the team in the upcoming season:

Championship - Win the title.
Achieve Promotion - Finish in a promotion spot.
Reach Playoffs - Finish in a promotion playoff spot.
Qualify for Europe - Finish in a Champions League or UEFA Cup spot.
Qualify for Cont. - Finish in a spot that qualifies you for the region's
		    respective Continental club competition.
Respectable - Finish in the top half of the table.
Clear of Relegation - Finish in the middle area of the table.
Battle Relegation - Finish near the bottom of the table, but not in the
		    relegation zone.
Improve Squad - Rebuilding year; can finish anywhere on the table.  Mainly used
		in divisions where there is no possibility of relegation.  (Ex:
		Scottish Third Division, J-League 2)

Bank - The team's starting bank balance in British pounds.
Funds - The amount of money a team has to spend on players in British pounds.
Stadium - The team's stadium capacity.  Teams with ---- as their capacity
	  either do not have a stadium (which will likely be assigned to the
	  team after the start of the first season), or do not have a capacity
	  entered in the data files for their stadium.
Facilities - The team's training facilities.  The different classes of
	     facilities, from worst to best, are: Needs Major Investment
	     (M. Invest), Needs Some Investment (Invest), Awful Facilities
	     (Awful), Adequate Facilities (Adequate), Good Facilities (Good),
	     Top Facilities + Youth Academy (Top/Youth).
Size - The squad size of the team at the start of the game.
Best Reputation - The teams that have the best reputation at the start of the
		  game, making it easier to sign top players/staff.

ARGENTINA
---------

FIFA Ranking: 748.98 (3rd)
Number of Teams: 126
Number of Staff: 3695

Argentine Premier Division - 20 teams, each team plays each other 2 times for a
			     total of 38 games.  The season is divided into two
			     stages (Opening and Closing) of 19 games each,
			     with a winner being declared for each stage.  2
			     teams relegated based on their total points
			     accumulated over the past 3 seasons, divided by
			     the number of games played by each team.  The 17th
			     and 18th place teams based on these average points
			     will play promotion playoff matches with Second
			     Division teams.  The two champions and the best 2
			     teams over the entire season qualify for the Copa
			     Libertadores.

Argentina Second Division - 25 teams, each team plays each other once for a
                            total of 24 games.  The teams (with the exception
                            of the champions, who win promotion to the Premier
			    Division) are then divided into 3 groups of 8
			    teams each.  Each team plays each other 2 times for
			    a total of 14 games in each group.  The winners of
			    each group, as well as the top 5 teams overall
			    after the league and group stages (?), advance to
			    the Second Promotion Quarter Final.  All rounds are
			    2 legs each, with the winner being promoted to the
			    Premier Division.  The runners-up of the final will
			    play in the Third Promotion 2 leg series against
			    the 18th place team in the Premier Division.  The
			    highest-ranking league team left after the Second
			    Promotion phase will play in the Fourth Promotion 2
			    leg series against the 17th place team in the
			    Premier Division.  2 teams relegated based on their
			    total points accumulated over the past 3 seasons,
			    divided by the number of games played by each team.

Notes: This is a pretty interesting league to play in, mainly because of the
       unique relegation system.  It may take a while to topple the giants such
       as River and Boca, however.  Surprisingly, there's no cup included,
       although that's true in real life as well.

				    two matches face each other in the Minor
				    Semi Final. Meanwhile, the top 2 teams face
				    each other in a 2 leg Major Semi Final.
				    The loser of this series faces the winner

				    Final, with the winner of that facing the
				    winner of the Major Semi Final in the Grand
				    Final to determine the league champion.
				    The champions enter the Oceania Champions

Notes: The general consensus is that this is the most boring league in the
       game, although lots of people do think that the NSL is a pretty boring
       league in real life as well.  There's also nothing to play for in this
       league either, as there's no cup and the Oceania Champions Cup isn't the
       most challenging or rewarding competition out there.  Managing Canberra
       to success could be a challenge, however.

Belgian Cup - Open to all Belgian teams.  Third Division teams enter in the
	      Third Round, Second Division teams enter in the Fourth Round,
	      First Division teams enter in the Sixth Round.  All rounds are 1
	      leg except for the Semi Finals, which are 2 legs.

Belgian Super Cup - Held between the First Division champions and the Belgian
		    Cup champions from the previous season.  1 leg match.

Notes: It's definitely a challenge to take a Third Division team and lead them
       to the First Division title in Belgium, although there aren't too many
       good teams in the league either.  Anderlecht and Club Brugge can make
       waves in Europe, though.  The period system might be tough to get the
       hang of and can seem unfair, but those are the rules in real life, so
       don't complain.

Brazilian Cup - Open to all Brazilian First and Second Division teams, and

			  North, Northeast and Santa Catarina State champions.
			  The Central, Goiás and Pernambuco State champions
			  compete in a 3-team Preliminary Round, with each team

       Division format and enough extra competitions.  Worth taking a look at
       if you don't mind long processing times.

Croatian Cup - Open to all Croatian League teams.  Second Division teams enter
	       in the Preliminary Round, First Division teams enter in the
	       First Round.  All rounds are 1 leg except from the Quarter Final
	       on, which are 2 legs.

Notes: Pretty easy league to understand, nothing special about it or anything.
       As you can see, some of the teams have unrealistic ambitions in the
       Second Division.  There's no way to win the Championship (unless they
       mean the Second Division title, but I really doubt it), and the
       only way to qualify for Europe would be through winning the Croatian Cup
       and hoping that all the First Division teams got eliminated early.
       This bug shouldn't affect gameplay, however.

Danish Cup - Open to all Danish teams.  First Division teams enter in the
	     Second and Third Rounds, Premier Division teams enter in the
	     Fourth and Fifth Rounds.  All rounds are 1 leg except for the Semi
	     Final, which is 2 legs.

Notes: You could make a European powerhouse out of Brøndby or København with
       some success both in the league and abroad.  Enough cash to spend on top
       players at any rate.  A challenging but simple league.

French League Cup: Open to all French League teams.  Top National teams enter
		   in the Preliminary Round, Second Division teams enter in the
		   First Round, First Division teams enter in the Second Round.
		   All rounds are 1 leg each.

French Champions Trophy: Held between the First Division champions and the
			 French Cup champions from the previous season. 1 leg
			 match.

Notes: One of the leagues in the game that has its rules changed after the
       first season, so be prepared for that.  France is another league where
       it can be fun to guide a team from worst to first.  One of the few
       leagues to have 2 league cups as well.

German Cup - Open to all German First and Second Division teams, as well as top
	     German Regional teams.  All rounds are 1 leg each.

German League Cup - Open to the top 6 teams in the German First Division from
		    the previous season.  1st and 2nd place teams get a bye to
		    the Semi Final round.  All games are 1 leg.

Notes: If you pick one of the German powerhouse teams, this should be a pretty
       easy league to win in.  The further down you go, however, the tougher it
       gets.  The Regional Leagues can be dropped from the game if you wish.

Greek Cup: Open to all Greek teams.  Teams are placed into 11 groups of 4 teams
	   each.  Each team plays each other once for a total of 3 games in
	   each group.  The top 2 teams in each group advance.  All 2nd place
	   teams and one 1st place team enter the Second Round, while the other
	   10 1st place teams enter the Third Round.  All rounds are 1 leg
	   except for the Quarter Final and Semi Final rounds, which are 2
	   legs.

Greek Super Cup: Held between the National A Division champions and the Greek
		 Cup champions from the previous season. 1 leg match.

Notes: Another very small league here, but it's faithful to the real-life
       league.  Good luck knocking off Panathinaikos (PAO), AEK and Olympiakos
       from the top of the league, however.

Dutch First Division - 18 teams, each team plays each other 2 times for a total
		       of 34 teams.  1 team promoted, 6 teams involved in a
		       promotion playoff with 2 Premier Division teams.  The
		       playoff finalists are determined by their performance in
		       Periods throughout the season.  There are 4 Periods
		       consisting of 8 games each, except for the Third Period
		       which is 10 games.  The winners of each Period (with the
		       exception of the Champions) and the two best teams
		       overall who did not win any Periods advance to the
		       playoffs.  Teams are divided into 2 groups of 4 teams
		       each (1 Premier Division team and 3 First Division teams
		       per group).  Each team plays each other 2 times for a
		       total of 6 games in each group.  The winners of each
		       group either earn promotion or remain in the Premier
		       Division.

Dutch Cup - Open to all Dutch teams.  Teams which qualify for Europe get byes
	    in the competition.  All other teams take part in the Group Stage.
	    Teams are divided into 19 groups of 4 teams and 1 group of 3 teams.
	    Each team plays each other once for a total of 3 (2 in the 3-team
	    group) games in each group.  The top 2 teams in each of the 4-team
	    groups and the winner of the 3-team group advance to the First
	    Round.  One Premier Division team (usually in the Intertoto Cup)
	    enters in the First Round.  The rest enter in the Third Round.  All
	    rounds are 1 leg each.

Dutch Super Cup - Held between the Premier Division champions and the Dutch Cup
		  champions from the previous season. 1 leg match.

Notes: Like the Belgian league, this uses the period system as well, which can
       be a little confusing the first time you see it in action.  It's also
       rather odd, as you can have a great first period to clinch a playoff
       spot, sink down the table with poor performances the rest of the season,
       yet still end up earning promotion.  No relegation from the First
       Division is also an oddity, but those are the rules in real life.

Italian Cup - Open to all Serie A and B teams, as well as top Serie C1 teams.
	      All 20 Serie B teams, 10 Serie C1 teams and 2 Serie A teams enter
	      the Group Stage.  Teams are divided into 8 groups of 4 teams
	      each.  Each team plays each other once for a total of 3 games
	      each.  The group winners advance to the First Round, where they
	      are drawn against low-ranking Serie A teams.  The winners move on
	      to face the top Serie A teams in the Second Round.  Each round
	      aside from the Group Stage is held over 2 legs.  (Note - I assume
	      that there are 10 Serie C1 teams, but Ravenna is drawn into the
	      groups at the start of the game, and they are in Serie D.
	      This may be an exception for this season (01/02) only.)

Italian Serie C Cup - Open to all Serie C1 and C2 teams.  The top 10 Serie C1
		      teams (involved in the Italian Cup) receive a bye to the
		      Second Round.  The other 80 teams are divided into 16
		      groups of 5 teams each in the Group Stage.  Each team
		      plays each other once for a total of 4 games each.  The
		      group winners and the best 6 2nd place teams advance to
		      the Second Round.  From there, all rounds are 2 legs
		      each.

Italian Super Cup - Held between the Serie A champions and the Italian Cup
		    champions from the previous season. 1 leg match.

Italian C1 Super Cup - Held between the winners of Serie C1/A and Serie C1/B.
		       1 leg match.

Notes: Serie C2 is optional, so you don't have to play with it if you don't
       want to.  Another classic league here, although the Italian Cup is a bit
       elitest with only 48 teams total taking part.  Since there are exactly
       128 teams in the top 4 divisions, why doesn't the Italian FA just have
       one big national cup competition?  In any event, those are the rules in
       real life, so CM abides by them.  Expectations are very high in Italy,
       so make sure you keep your fans (and your chairman) happy.

			 enter in the Third Round.  (For some reason, Vissel

			 Winners' Cup.

	       teams enter in the First Round, 3 J-League 1 and 1 J-League 2
	       team enter in the Second Round.  All rounds are 2 legs except
	       for the Final, which is 1 leg.

Japanese Super Cup - Held between the J-League 1 champions and the Emperor's
		     Cup champions from the previous season. 1 leg match.

Notes: The only Asian league in the game, but it's one of the more well-known
       ones.  Worth playing because of the rule changes and the possibility of
       qualifying for one of the Asian cups (which were added in CM 01/02).  It
       beats Australia, at any rate.  It's odd to see Vissel Kobe excluded from
       the Emperor's Cup, however.  Any idea as to why that's the case?

Norwegian Cup - Open to all Norwegian teams.  All rounds are 1 leg.

Notes: This can actually be a pretty fun league to play in because there's good
       competition and it's not that hard to get a team into the top reaches of
       the Premier Division.  Rosenborg and Lillestrøm tend to fade away after
       the first season or two, making the race for the title wide open.

Polish FA Cup - Open to all Polish teams.  Second Division teams enter in the
		First and Second Rounds, First Division teams enter in the
		Second and Third Rounds.  The first three rounds are 1 leg
		each, with all other rounds consisting of 2 leg matches.

Polish League Cup - Open to all Polish League teams.  Second Division teams
		    enter in the First and Second Rounds, First Division
		    teams enter in the Third and Fourth Rounds.  All rounds are
		    2 legs.

Polish Super Cup - Held between the First Division champions and the Polish FA
		   Cup champions from the previous season. 1 leg match.

Notes: A rather odd First Division structure is probably the highlight of this
       league.  Well, that and the fact there are two cup competitions.  There
       is a bit of talent in the lower leagues, so you might be able to do well
       with a small team here.

Portuguese Cup - Open to all Portuguese teams.  Second Division B teams enter
		 in the Second Round, Second League teams enter in the Third
		 Round, Premier League teams enter in the Fourth Round, with 1
		 receiving a bye to the Fifth Round, and one random team
		 receiving a bye to the Quarter Finals from the Sixth Round.
		 All rounds are 1 leg each.

Portuguese Super Cup - Held between the Premier League champions and the
		       Portuguese Cup champions from the previous season. 1 leg
		       match.

Notes: Sporting, Porto and Benfica.  Those are the big three in Portuguese
       soccer, as they basically have a monopoly on the league title.  Good
       luck knocking them all off to claim it.  Leixões are actually worth
       looking at in the Second Division B however, as they have many players
       who have high potential ratings.  Either steal their top players or
       guide them to success, it's your choice.  Of course, you don't have to
       play with the Second Division B activated if you don't want to.

		   each.  Each team plays each other once for a total of 2
		   games in each group.  The winners of each group advance to

		  in the previous season.  Each team plays each other once

Notes: There's enough cup competitions in Ireland, which is surprising since
       it's not exactly a high-profile league or anything.  Take note of the
       changes in league structure by the time the second season rolls around.
       Basically a wide-open league, with no really strong teams.

Russian Cup - Open to all Russian teams.  First Division teams enter in the
	      First Round, Premier Division teams enter in the Second Round.
	      All rounds are 1 leg.

Notes: Small league, but it can get competitive in the Premier Division.  Note
       that the Russian Cup starts at the end of one season and finishes at the
       start of the next one.  So if you win it and get a UEFA Cup spot, that's
       for the next season, not the current one.

Spanish Cup - Open to all Spanish teams.  Low ranking Second Division and top
	      ranking Second Division B teams (aside from reserve teams) enter
	      the Preliminary Round, with some of the Second Division B teams
	      receiving byes to the First Round.  First Division and the
	      remaining Second Division teams also receive byes to the First
	      Round.  All rounds are 1 leg each except for the Third Round,
	      Quarter Finals and Semi Finals, which are 2 legs each.

Spanish Super Cup - Held between the First Division champions and the Spanish
		    Cup champions from the previous season. 2 leg match.

Notes: Another very demanding league, with the fans and board expecting success
       every step of the way.  Barcelona are the richest team in the game,
       which makes them perfect for CM beginners.  You don't have to play with
       the Second Division B if you don't want to.  Like Portugal, there are
       reserve teams in the Second Division B, and it can be odd watching your
       team go for the First Division title and your B team trying to earn
       promotion to the Second Division.  Also, some teams (which I'll identify
       in a later update) can only sign players from the Pays Basque region of
       Spain - Athletic Bilbao comes to mind right away.

Swedish Cup - Open to all Swedish teams.  Teams are divided into 8 separate
	      pools for the first two rounds.  2 Premier Division teams enter
	      in the First Round, the rest enter in the Second Round.  After
	      the first two rounds, the 8 teams remaining from each pool move
	      on to the Third Round.  All rounds are 1 leg each except for the
	      Final, which is 2 legs.

Notes: Don't worry, you don't have to play with the Second Division on.
       There's enough challenge to be found there, however, with a lot of teams
       either broke or lacking players.  Like in Russia, the cup starts at the
       end of one season and finishes in the next, but it's clearly the largest
       domestic cup in the game.  Around 250+ teams take part.

Turkish FA Cup - Open to all First Division and 2. Division Category A teams,
		 as well as top 2. Division Category B teams.  Top 2. Division
		 Category A teams join in the Second Round, First Division
		 teams join in the Third Round.  All rounds are 1 leg each.

Notes: Turkey can be a very demanding league as well.  Just one loss can turn
       the fans against you here, so beware.  It might not be that hard to
       escape Category B however, as some teams do have quite a bit of money on
       hand.  Just remember that unless you're in the First Division, you can
       only sign Turkish players.

       around the same amount of cash and the same reputation, so you could

Welsh Cup - Open to all Welsh League teams.  Welsh Premier Division teams enter
	    in the Third Round.  All rounds are 1 leg.

Welsh League Cup - Open to all Welsh Premier League teams.  Teams are placed in
		   6 groups of 3 teams each.  Each team plays each other 2
		   times for a total of 4 games in each group.  Group winners
		   and the best 2 runners-up advance to the Quarter Finals.
		   From there, all rounds are 1 leg except for the Semi Finals,
		   which are 2 legs.

Welsh Premier Cup - Open to the top 8 (or top 7 + cup winner?) Welsh Premier
		    League teams, and Welsh teams playing in England (Cardiff,
		    Swansea, Wrexham and Merthyl Tydfil).  The English teams
		    receive a bye to the Quarter Finals.  The Welsh teams are
		    placed in 2 groups of 4 teams each.  Each team plays each
		    other 2 times for a total of 6 games in each group.  The
		    top 2 teams from each group advance to the Quarter Finals.
		    From there, all rounds are 1 leg except for the Semi
		    Finals, which are 2 legs.

Notes: Surprisingly, the Welsh Premier Division isn't accurate.  There should
       be two relegation spots, but for some reason they weren't added in CM
       00/01 or 01/02.  Maybe in CM4, although I am aware it's sad that I'm
       complaining about the accuracy of the Welsh Premier Division.  One
       interesting thing here is that if you manage Cardiff, Swansea or Wrexham
       in England and have Wales active as well, you can participate in the
       Premier Cup.  A nice little side attraction at any rate.  Welsh teams
       tend to do quite poorly in European competitions, so make sure you
       succeed if you end up in one so Wales doesn't drop down in the rankings
       and ends up without a Champions Cup slot.

4) Easy/Challenging Teams

The following teams in CM 01/02 have large bank balances and enough talent to
succeed if managed well.  If you're new to the game, you can't go wrong with
these teams.

Argentina - Boca, River
Belgium - Anderlecht, Club Brugge
Brazil - At. Paranaense, Flamengo, São Paulo
Denmark - Brøndby, FC København
England - Arsenal, Blackburn, Leeds, Liverpool, Man Utd
France - Bordeaux, Lyon, Monaco
Germany - Dortmund, FC Bayern, Hertha BSC, Leverkusen
Greece - Olympiakos, PAO
Holland - Ajax, PSV
Italy - Inter, Juventus, Lazio, Milan, Parma, Roma
Norway - Rosenborg
Portugal - Benfica, Porto, Sporting
Russia - CSKA, Lokomotiv Moscow, Spartak Moscow
Scotland - Celtic, Rangers
Spain - Athletic Bilbao, Barcelona, Celta, Deportivo, Mallorca, Real Madrid,
	Valencia
Sweden - AIK
Turkey - Besiktas, Fenerbahçe, Galatasaray

On the other hand...  These teams have massive debts.  You'll have to manage
your finances and talent well if you want to win with these teams, unless you
get bought out by a new board.

Australia - Canberra Cosmos, Marconi
Croatia - Dinamo
England - Brentford, Derby, Everton, Hereford, Norwich, Nottm Forest,
	  Scarborough, Sheff Utd, Sheff Wed, Southend
France - Créteil, Nice
Italy - Fiorentina
Northern Ireland - Glentoran
Scotland - Hearts, Inverness C. T., St. Mirren

These teams are in even worse shape, as they start the game with few/no
players in their squad at all.  You'll have to build these teams up from
scratch.

Australia - Canberra Cosmos
Brazil - Baré, Brasiliense, Comercial (MS), Operário (MS), Sorocaba
Denmark - Kalundborg GB
Finland - VG-62
Sweden - Karlskrona, Karlslund, Katrineholm, Lidingö, Lunden, Sandared,
	 Skiljebo, Topkapi, Växjö Norra
Turkey - Agrispor

World Cup African Qualifying Section - Open to 50 African nations.  A 2 leg
				       First Round cuts the field down to 25
				       nations.  The teams are then split into
				       5 groups of 5 teams each.  Each team
				       plays each other twice for a total of 8
				       games in each group.  The group winners

				     the World Cup, with the runners-up in each
				     group meeting in a 1 leg playoff to decide
				     who will face an European representative
				     for a World Cup slot. (I believe that
				     after the 2002 World Cup, the top 2 teams
				     in each group advance to the World Cup,
				     with the 3rd place teams in each group
				     participating in the playoff.)

				        Playoff.  The 5 remaining teams and
				        Honduras are drawn to play each other
				        over 2 legs, with the 3 winners
				        entering the Semi Final phase.  Canada,
				        United States, Mexico and Jamaica

				       World Cup slot.

World Cup South American Qualifying Section - One group consisting of all 10
					      South American teams.  Each team

6) Misc. Information

Player Stats/Meanings:

Each player in the game has a wide array of attributes, most of which are
visible in the game.  Most attributes range in value from 1 to 20 - 1 being the
worst rating possible for that attribute, and 20 being the highest rating
possible.

Some players have ratings of 0, meaning that the game will randomly generate
that rating.  So a player with 0's for all attributes could turn out to be a
superstar, or one of the worst players in the world.  Generally, however,
they'll turn out to be average.

Here are the hidden mental characteristics for players:

Adaptability - How the player adapts to living in a foreign country.  For
example, a Swede playing in Italy.  The higher the rating, the less likely he
is to become homesick and unhappy.
Ambition - How much ambition the player has.  The higher the rating, the more
pumped up he'll be to win league titles and cups for his club.
Determination - How determined the player is to do well.  This is self-
explanatory.
Loyalty - How loyal the player is to his boss.  The higher the rating, the less
likely he'll be to turn on the team and demand a transfer for some reason.
Pressure - How the player performs in clutch situations.  The higher the
rating, the more likely he is to shine when the chips are down.
Professionalism - How professional the player's conduct is.  The higher the
rating, the less likely he's going to do anything foolish like make a rude
gesture to the crowd or strike out against his manager.
Sportsmanship - How sporting the player is.  The higher the rating, the less
likely the player will be pulling stunts on the field like diving or spitting.
Temperament - How well the player keeps his temper.  The higher the rating, the
less likely the player will retaliate against another player, or even punch
referees.

The following attributes determine a player's playing ability, which determines
how popular and talented he is.  Note that the values of these attributes can
range from 0-200, with 0 being random, 1 being the worst possible and 200 being
the best possible.  Few players will have 200 for an ability, since that would
be reserved for greats like Pele.

Current Ability - The player's current overall ability at the start of the
game.
Potential Ability - How far the player's ability can develop.  There are 2
special ratings for this attribute.  -1 will randomly generate that player's
Potential Ability from 120 to 200, biased towards the lower end of that scale.
In contrast, -2 will randomly generate that player's Potential Ability from 120
to 200, biased towards the higher end of that scale.  So a player with -1 can
get a Potential Ability of 180 and a player with -2 can get a Potential Ability
of 125, but those aren't as likely to happen.
Home Reputation - The player's reputation in his home country.  A player from
South Korea may be struggling on his team in France, but he can be regarded as
a hero in his homeland.
Current Reputation - The player's current overall reputation.
World Reputation - The player's current worldwide reputation.

The following attributes apply to all facets of a player's game.  Again, all of
the attributes are scored between 0-20, with 0 being random, 1 being the worst
rating possible and 20 being the best rating possible.  Ratings with an
asterisk (*) beside them mean that they're hidden on a player's info screen,
and thus not noticible during a game.

Acceleration - How quickly the player can reach top speed on a run.
Agression - How agressive the player is.
Agility - How agile the player is.
Anticipation - How well the player can anticipate events on the field.
Balance - How well the player can keep his balance after a tackle.
Bravery - How brave the player is.
(*) Consistency - How consistent the player is.  The rating is multiplied by 5
to find out the chances of the player being consistent.  For example, a rating
of 10 means that the player is consistent 50% of the time.  To be consistent
means that the player performs to his Current Ability.
(*) Corners - How skilled the player is at taking corners.
Creativity - How creative the player can be on the field. (takes Movement into
account?)
Crossing - How skilled the player is at crossing the ball.
Decisions - How skilled the player is when it comes to making quick decisions
on the field.
(*) Dirtiness - How dirty the player is.
Dribbling - How well the player can dribble the ball.
Finishing - How well the player can finish a goal-scoring chance.
Flair - How likely the player is to do something special on the field.
(*) Free Kicks - How skilled the player is at free kicks.
Handling - Only applies to goalkeepers.  How skilled the keeper is at handling
the ball.
Heading - How well the player can head the ball.
(*) Important Matches - How well the player performs in important matches.
Influence - How well the player influences his team. (takes Leadership into
account?)
(*) Injury Proneness - How prone the player is to getting injured.
Jumping - How good the player is when jumping to get the ball.
(*) Leadership - How well the player can lead his team.
(*) Left Foot - How good the player is using his left foot.

Pace - How fast the player can run when he reaches his top speed.
Passing - How good the player is at passing.
(*) Penalties - How good the player is at taking a penalty kick.
Positioning - How good the player is at keeping a defensive position.  This
rating also applies to goalkeepers.
Reflexes - Only applies to goalkeepers.  How good a keeper is at making a quick
save.
(*) Right Foot - How good the player is using his right foot.
Stamina - How long the player can play before starting to tire and lose his
effectiveness.
Strength - How strong the player is physically.
Tackling - How good the player is at executing tackles.
Teamwork - How good the player is at playing as a team instead of focusing on
himself.
Technique - How good the player's ball control and overall technique is.
(*) Throw-Ins - How skilled the player is at taking throw-ins.
(*) Versatility - How good the player is in adapting his game to positions that
he normally doesn't play in.
(*) Vision - How well the player can spot players in good positions to pass to.
Work Rate - How hard the player works during a match.

Future Stars:

The following players have been given future potentials of -2 by the game. This
means that their potential is randomly generated from 120 to 200, biased
towards the higher end of that scale.  Therefore, these players are likely to
become superstars, although it all depends on how they do in your game.  Many
of these players are also cheap buys, and should serve you well in the future.
Don't forget that not all of these players will be loaded into your game
depending on the size of your database.
