INTRODUCTION

Welcome to my second game FAQ.
This is my 2nd of 3 guides about Championship Manager Season 03/04,
the best football manager simulator ever in my opinion. It is planned to be
a guide to all players over 30 with a current ability over 160. I will be
the editor to find out all this information using a non-updated database.

I know its ugly looking and hard to read and theres a lot of players here,
but hey its nothing to the 237496 on the entire game, but i hope it helps
some of you to find some new players.


VERSION HISTORY

1.00 Built FAQ with 43 players


PLANNED UPDATES

1.10 Will change current ability to 150 (extra 67 players)
     Add players value


TERMINOLOGY

This guide was created assuming that the people who read it would understand
the terms used, but just in case you don't, here goes

GK - Goalkeeper
D - Defender
M - Midfielder
F - Forward (can usually play as attacking midfielder to)
S - Striker
R - Right
L - Left
C - Centre
x/y - Can play in both x and y e.g D/M could play in both defence and
      midfield
xy - Can play on both sides stated eg LC could play in both centre and on
     left hand side

Where a player has a first name, second name and common name, the common name
has been used.

All dates are in the format DD.MM.YY

In preferences n/a means that this section of players database was blank.

If a player has more than one position e.g. Cafu can play D/M, then he
is placed in his first catagory, so Cafu is in the defenders section.

Ability and reputation are ratings out of 200 that were given to players by
the creators of this game, i have not worked anything out myself.

contact me about the FAQ but please don't send anything asking why i've left
certain players out, chances are that their potential isn't good enough, or
they don't fall in the correct age bracket.
