    |s1. Introduction|
    +----------------+
    
    
    This is a guide for those people who have had enough of Champions League glory
    with Chelsea or Arsenal or whoever and fancy slumming it with down at the foot
    of the football pyramid. I don't know about you but whilst it is a lot of fun 
    managing one of the world's top teams and winning continental or international
    glory, for all true football fans there is always a special place in our hearts
    for the minnows. Everybody who truly loves football feels a rush of excitement 
    when a non-league side scores against superior league opposition (unless the 
    league opposition is your team!) in the FA Cup. There's something different
    about watching lesser players succeed, maybe it's a little patronising but I
    like to think that it's because it's a lot easier for us to imagine ourselves in
    their position battling against the bigger teams in a cup competition than it 
    is to imagine ourselves as an international striker scoring a hat-trick in the 
    World Cup Final. Because, let's face it, that's probably not going to happen
    for any of us.
    
    Everyone knows about the top players in the world. As far as I am concerned
    there's no real glory in signing Ronaldinho, you just have to have the money
    to do it. Even the more obscure promising players such as Ustari are now well
    documented so even the most inexperienced player can build a decent team in the
    top flight that is capable of challenging for all major honours within a few 
    seasons. Personally, the fact that all these players are so well known takes
    away some of the challenge for me and hence the production of this FAQ. 
    Would you know where to look for decent players to help you out of the mire if
    you were the manager of East Fife rather than Real Madrid? Would you know who
    to pick out of a squad of complete no hopers when you're competing in the
    Nationwide Conference South rather than the Champions League? I'm sure that
    there are some of you out there who would, and for those people this FAQ is 
    more of a reference guide for you, but if you don't (and there's nothing wrong
    with that!) then I hope this will give you a little prod and encourage you to
    do something a little bit different.
    
    It might take a little longer to reach true glory, but in my opinion there is 
    much more satisfaction to be gained from taking a minnow and turning them into
    a world renowned giant than just taking Abramovich's shilling, buying a load of 
    the world's best players with your unlimited budget and then, surprise,
    surprise winning everything in sight (unless of course you are a tactical 
    muppet!). Personally, my most satisfying moments have been when I have 
    achieved greatness with lower league teams, whether it be taking Scarborough to
    the Premier League championship and the European Cup (admittedly before they 
    went into receivership), getting East Stirling where they truly belong, i.e.
    the Scottish Premier League and the UEFA cup (I still can't beat Rangers or
    Celtic), or my finest ever moment a 4-2 victory over Barcelona in the quarter
    final of the European Cup in the Nou Camp as none other than Bishop Aukland
    (admittedly in CM2 but still more enjoyable than winning with one of the
    more famous teams).
    
    Hopefully you will feel the way I do about Lower League Management, but if not 
    hopefully this will inspire you to try something new, especially as this is 
    a massive part of the game or at least have a good nose about at some clubs
    you may never have heard of. 
    
    This is the fourth FAQ that I have written for this esteemed website,
    following a guide to Championship Manager 01/02 on Xbox, a guide to various 
    Easter Eggs found in Championship Manager 00/01 on PC and a guide to secrets
    and hidden places for Transworld Snowboarding on Xbox. It's definitely the
    most in depth FAQ I have ever written. You'll notice from the first version 
    that there are a large number of sections still to be completed. Hopefully I 
    will be able to complete them all (though if anyone wishes to help me out, as 
    long as they write in the same format that I am using they are more than 
    welcome). Either way, it's certainly a very interesting FAQ to write and I am
    definitely getting a better feel for how the game works.

    I FAQed or reviewed you can find it here:

    +----------------------------+
    |s1.1 What is a Lower League?|
    +----------------------------+
    
    
    OK, now I have got all my wistful musing on the beautiful nature of the 
    struggle of lower league sides, it's probably worth saying a little bit about
    what will actually be in this guide!
    
    Firstly, let me clarify my definition of a Lower League Team. A Lower League
    Team will always be in the bottom level of manageable leagues in Football 
    Manager. This does not mean though that in countries where you can only manage
    one league that I would count these teams as Lower League, even though they are
    almost certainly going to be from countries where the overall standard of
    football is low even at the highest level. So I will not be discussing teams
    from the Indian football league, even though the playing standard there may be
    lower than some of Lower League Teams from other countries that do make it into
    the FAQ. To be honest I would quite like to but it would a) lead to a lot more
    work and b) the main point of Lower League Management is to take teams to
    levels that, with the best will in the world, they are unlikely to reach in
    real life.
    
    However, a club does not necessarily have to be non-league for it to make it 
    into the FAQ. Obviously the Lower League Teams in England will be but the 
    Lower League Teams in Scotland will be Division 3 as there is no Non-League 
    feeding in Scotland. For other countries whether they are discussed will 
    mainly be a judgement call based on two factors: 
    
    1) How many leagues can you manage? If you can manage more than three leagues 
    in a given country then I will count the fourth league or whatever is lowest, 
    as a Lower League. 
    
    2) If there are three leagues that are manageable in a given country then
    the lowest of the three will be classified as a Lower League. As such, the 
    Brazilian third division is counted as a Lower League. (That won't take too 
    long to write up then!)
    
    
    +------------------------------+
    |s1.2 What does this FAQ cover?|
    +------------------------------+
    
    
    This FAQ will provide details of all the clubs that fulfil the criteria listed
    above. In places where the lower league is divided into various regional
    divisions, this will be represented in the FAQ for easier cross referencing 
    related teams.
    
    I intend to follow the same format that Inferno uses in his FM FAQ (which is 
    here if you are not reading this on Gamefaqs:
    
    
    http://db.gamefaqs.com/computer/doswin/file/worldwide_soccer_manager_2007.txt
    
    
    Mainly because I think that it is good way to set out this information as it is
    easy to read and secondly because, whilst I think at the moment his FAQ is at a
    stage where it would be confusing to have details on lower leagues for
    countries where the top division has not yet been covered (as well as my own 
    view that this is an area of the game worthy of a stand alone FAQ) I would
    like to think that as his FAQ expands to cover more countries and more of their
    higher leagues, so our work could be combined to form an overall FAQ for the
    game that could form a template for FAQs for future versions.
    
    As such, within each division, the information about each club will be 
    presented thus:

    Notes:
    
    
    You will see that I have not included the continental competition field that is
    in Inferno's FAQ for obvious reasons. Although I originally was not going to
    put in the board and fan expectations as it is not something that has ever
    concerned me, but it appears that some people on the GameFAQs Football Manager
    forum think that it is a very important part of selecting a team, so I am 
    happy to bow to pressure and I will include them with all the clubs as it 
    really doesn't take as much time as I thought it would do. However, you may
    find that I put in information for a division, but won't get round to doing
    the board / fan expectations, but don't worry, I find it is quicker to do them
    seperately so they will be coming! Furthermore, I will not necessarily put a 
    figure in the Difficulty section. To be perfectly honest, with the exception of
    a very small selection of clubs most of the clubs will be pretty difficult and 
    the difference in skill between most of them is negligible. I'll only put a 
    figure in when a team in a given league is noticeably better or worse than 
    their peers.
    
    A brief note on board and fan expectations. Where the expectation is followed
    by 'x2' that means it is the same for both fans and board. I know this is 
    obvious but you have to spell things out to some people! ;-)
    
    Stadium and capacity will only deal with current capacity and the stadium that
    the team play in at the start of the game. If the team is scheduled to move at
    any point then this will be covered in the Notes section. Any expansion
    capability at the ground will also be covered in the Notes section. If no 
    expansion capacity is listed then the ground is as big as it is going to get!
    
    Where all players in a squad are listed as being worth nothing, I will use
    the figure generated by FM Genie Scout, as although players are listed as
    being worth 0 this is not actually the case, it merely means they are
    worth less than 500 (those worth more than 500 but less than 1000 will
    be listed in the game as being worth 1k). This is partly for pedantry's
    sake but also because you will actually receive that money for the transfer
    and the sale of a couple of players worth around 500 could give a 1k 
    transfer budget helping you to bring in that all important player from another
    club.
    
    You should note that there will be no assistance given here on tactics. You 
    have to do some of the work yourself!! The purpose of this FAQ is to provide
    detailed information about each of the Lower League Clubs to give the player an
    idea as to the level of challenge each club offers, since most of these clubs
    I guarantee you will never have heard of. I know this goes against the 
    principles of Lower League Management as held by the good people at FM Britain, 
    but I offer no apologies! ;-) As far as I am concerned no real life manager 
    would last five minutes in any league without the knowledge presented in this
    FAQ, even if I do say so myself! 
    
    If you really are tactically stuck I would recommend that you go to the LLM 
    Britain website, which is a subsection of the normal FM Britain website. Here 
    they have detailed discussions of the tactics. There's no set tactics to 
    download, and the essays are rather technical, but they do explain in proper
    footballing language why certain things work and how. I've found them quite 
    useful and with a few tweaks for your respective team and the right purchases 
    you should be able to succeed (I managed to get Thurrock out of the Conference
    South using the FM Britain notes as a guide for my tactic - though the
    Conference proper is proving to be a bit more difficult!). The web addresses
    for FM Britain and LLM Britain are: 
    
    
    http://www.fm-britain.co.uk/ 
    
    and: http://www.llm-britain.co.uk/
    
    
    One other thing that I will include is a brief list of decent players from non-
    manageable leagues below the Lower Leagues. These aren't intended to be
    exhaustive so if you feel I have missed someone out then by all means email me
    to let me know. These lists will be placed at the end of the FAQ so those who
    just want to use it as a source of information can do so without worrying that 
    they might see something they don't want to. As you can see from the contents,
    these are divided into Decent Players and Promising Players. If you do email
    me about this could you please check the player in at least two games to 
    ensure that the player's stats weren't just a fluke. Also check to see, with
    regard to Yth players that they are in fact real by reconciling the game
    squad with the database to ensure that he actually exists, otherwise it won't
    be much use to anyone!
    
    Decent players in this context are players aged 20 or over who have a current
    ability which would make them a key player in all but the very best lower 
    league teams in that country. Promising players are players under the age of 20
    (though not including Yth players as it is too hard to judge whether the 
    player is a genuine youth player or whether the player was just randomly
    generated at the start of the game - see below for more on this). These 
    promising players will have potential abilities which, if fulfilled, would make
    them far and away one of the best players in that league and would probably 
    allow them to play several divisions higher. In most cases these players will 
    have a potential ability greater than 100. As well as this they will also have
    a reasonable current ability, generally around 20 or 30, so there is at least
    a chance that they might fulfil their potential. I didn't see much point in
    including players with great potential abilities but current abilities in 
    single figures.
    
    Each league will also have a brief list of the relevant rules for each. I will
    repeat these for each division within a given countries league. This will make 
    things a little repetitive but I think that most people won't really read 
    through this whole FAQ. Instead I think they'll probably think one day that
    they fancy managing a team in a certain division and will just go to that 
    division. Repeating all the rules means that readers won't have to search 
    through a huge amount of data to find a small set of rules.
    
    As a final point, for those of you who like to play the game as true to life as
    possible, i.e. only take over clubs at the start of the game who are lacking a
    manager, I will include a list of these clubs before the rules for each nation.
    
    
    _______________________________________________________________________________
    
    
    +-----------------+
    |s2. General Notes|
    +-----------------+
    
    
    These are few notes that apply to all the leagues discussed in this FAQ. If you
    find something to do with a particular club that you think is a bit weird or 
    something then you should probably look here. Kind of like a FAQ for the FAQ!
    
    
    +---------------------+
    |s2.1 Transfer Budgets|
    +---------------------+
    
    
    Firstly, the transfer budgets listed here are those given in the data editor.
    Where they are listed as 0 this means that the figure will be decided
    randomly, not that the budget is actually 0. However, where the budget is low,
    in all probability the transfer budget will in fact be 0. I will do my best to
    find out the precise budget in-game but this would be very time consuming. I
    will do a few random checks taking over teams to compare the actual in-game 
    budgets and as long as these match I will be satisfied. 
    
    In keeping with Inferno's policy all figures will be taken from players 
    entering the game as managers with no experience. If you do find any budgets
    that are wildly different and you are also a manager with no experience then do
    let me know. 
    
    You should also note that a very few budgets will be listed as 1 or 
    occasionally 5, this is because whilst the 0 figure will almost always mean
    0 for a completely newb manager it can theoretically change (although it
    probably won't, given the fact that most clubs have very little money). The 1
    or 5 budget means that regardless of your previous footballing experience
    you will always start with a 0 budget.
    
    
    +-------------+
    |s2.2 Currency|
    +-------------+
    
    
    All financial figures are given in  sterling. That's just how it's going down.
    Sorry if you're from another country but all the figures are relative and there
    are plenty of currency converters out there on the old interweb. Also it does 
    mean that with the lists of players you can easily compare values so decide
    which one will be most be beneficial to your club.
    
    
    +-------------+
    |s2.3 Database|
    +-------------+
    
    
    All data is taken from the 7.0.1 update. I know this is different to the 
    database used by Inferno, but I always play with 7.0.1 and I feel so do most
    other people too. I am aware that 7.0.2 has literally just come out as I write,
    but I have started with this database so I will finish!               
    
    
    +---------------+
    |s2.4 Difficulty|
    +---------------+
    
    
    Given that many of the Lower League Clubs are pretty comparable in terms of 
    difficulty, I will only make remarks concerning the difficulty when a team in a
    given league is either considerably below or considerably above the standard
    of the other teams in that league. This figure may be given due to extremely
    precarious finances or a woeful squad, it should be obvious from the 
    information given why I feel that one team is particularly better or worse than
    another.
    
    
    +-----------------+
    |s2.5 Loan Players|
    +-----------------+
    
    
    I will also stick with Inferno's policy of including loan players in the top
    earners but will not include them in the most valuable section. This is because
    you may not want them regardless of their ability because of their effect on
    your wage budget but they aren't a player you can make any money on because he
    doesn't belong to you.
    
    
    +--------------------------------------------+
    |s2.6 Players Randomly Generated at the Start|
    +--------------------------------------------+
    
    
    With reference to the players listed, I will only be going off the list of 
    players given in the database. If any of you are seasoned Lower League
    Managers then you may have noticed that the game randomly generates some 
    players for certain (I think randomly decided teams). As far as I can tell
    from my own personal experience, these players are always youth players
    without exception. You'll have to make your own decisions about what to do
    with these players! For example, when I was searching through the Brazilian
    third division looking for the most challenging team to manage I found 
    several with absolutely no real players whatsoever, but when I started a 
    different game I found that those teams had six or seven real players in 
    them, all youth players. As I was running quite a few leagues at a time, this
    could have been due to timing differences (i.e. I had started the game at one 
    point in time, the start of another nation's season and was actually seeing 
    the selection of youth players who you get at the end of every season
    promoted from your youth setup and I just hadn't noticed). Either way I am 
    pretty certain that the players are not real, though if anyone out there can
    clarify exactly what goes on I would be grateful and they will, of course, get
    full credit for their assistance.
    
    One point I ought to make at this juncture is that these randomly generated
    players are people you should check out right at the start. Not because they
    might be quite good (I suppose there's a chance they might be but that's not 
    the point), but because they could be a major drain on you wage budget. I have
    often found, particularly at cash strapped clubs that these players are often 
    earning considerably more than members of the first team. Ten of these players
    can easily add a grand a week to your wage budget which is a lot at this level.
    You need to immediately offload them unless you think they are going to be 
    immediately useful to free up some money for more experienced or better
    developed players. See my notes on East Stirling for a prime example of this. 
    I won't mention this in particular when dealing with clubs unless I think that
    there are a large number of useless youth players whom you could easily do 
    without or if the club is in debt and you will need to get back in the red ASAP
    
    
    You should notice that most of the teams listed here are over their wage budget
    This is because the budget is preset but the youth players are predominantly
    generated when the game is starting. Their wages then are added to the current 
    total often taking it over the budget.
    
    
    +----------------------------+
    |s2.7 Key / Promising Players|
    +----------------------------+
    
    
    Although I will be using FM Genie Scout to obtain some information about the
    value of players, I will not use it to generate information regarding the 
    ability of players. This will come entirely from the database. In case you 
    are unaware, the game decides how good a player can get in three ways:
    
    i) The player will have a set potential ability. That is as good as a player
    can get in the game full stop. It doesn't matter how well you train him, a 
    player will always be limited by that figure. The potential ability as well
    as current ability is a number between 0 (i.e. random) and 200. 
    
    You also have to consider the player's current ability. Those with extremely
    low current ability are highly unlikely to fulfil their potential. However,
    if they are very young (14 or 15) then they may well do and could well
    warrant inclusion.
    
    ii) It is hard to judge players potential exactly, especially with youth 
    players and so often they will be given a negative number between -1 and -10.
    These potential abilities work in the following way. The greater a players
    negative number the greater the chance he will have a high potential ability
    when a game is started. For example a player with a potential ability of -10
    will pretty much certainly have a high potential when the game starts (i.e.
    over 180). A player with a potential ability of -1 still has a chance of 
    starting the game with a with a very high potential ability but it is much,
    much less than someone with -10. The figures in between work on a sliding
    scale between these two potential outcomes.
    
    With negative numbers you also have to consider the players current ability.
    A player with a potential ability of -10 but a current ability of 10 will
    start the game with a very high potential ability, but is extremely unlikely
    (definitely not?) going to fulfil this potential.
    
    iii) The player has 0 for potential ability. In this case, and the same 
    applies with current ability, the figure will be decided randomly. Presumably 
    this is done with reference to the reputation of the club and the reputation 
    of league the club is in. As we are dealing with Lower League Clubs, I think
    it is safe to say that no player with zeroes in these fields will start the 
    game or ever end up as the next Henry. So I won't be hedging my bets by 
    including any of these players in this FAQ.
    
    This is quite a lot of information when most clubs described won't have any
    proper (i.e. non-randomly generated) youth players worth commenting on, but I 
    thought I would explain it and when I put a player in either the Key Player
    pr Promising Player lists I won't list their ability as well so you will have 
    to make your own decision. I know this isn't all that helpful but when a player
    has a potential ability of -5 that is not uncommon and doesn't really mean 
    anything until you have actually started a game.
    
    
    +-----------------------+
    |s2.8 Greyed Out Players|
    +-----------------------+
    
    
    Remember you can sign these to a contract if you want but only if they are 
    from your club. However, obviously they can't be discussed in this FAQ! With 
    many of the teams in leagues such as the Brazilian third division, there is 
    often clubs that do not have enough real players to form a squad. Make sure 
    you have an assistant manager to advise you whether they are worth signing.
    They probably won't be but you never know!
    
    
    +---------------+
    |s2.9 Reputation|
    +---------------+
    
    
    This will be the figure given in the database. This is because the level of
    football we are concerned with is such that pretty much all clubs will be 
    local. Using the database figure will allow easier cross referencing and if
    one team is noticeably stronger than the others or weaker, this will still be
    easily noticeable.
    
    
    +----------------+
    |s2.10 Squad Size|
    +----------------+
    
    
    Towing the Inferno line these are first team figures only. These may include
    some youth team players who are in the first team squad, but in the main these
    are real youth team players rather than randomly generated ones.

    Right let's get down to the nitty gritty, the clubs. Sorry if I wasted your

    someone who has only just started playing could get the gist of what I intend
    to cover and how it works in the game without having a load of questions left

    Difficulty (/10):
    
    Notes: Marcus Ebdon could do with a wage cut as he's earning 100 a week more 
    than anyone else and is not really a key player nor is he worth to much. I know
    100 a week doesn't sound like much but it is 5200 a year but as you only 
    start with 13325 you will end up saving more than a third of your original
    cash with this one deal. If you're used to six figure a week contracts with 
    players then you might think that it's a bit pikey but it's something you're 
    going to have to get used to. There are quite a large number of frankly 
    incompetent players at this level taking home more that pocket money and you
    need to get strict with this from the outset if you ever want to see any cash 
    for transfers! If you find that you are in a healthy financial position at the
    end of the first season then I think it is probably a good idea to invest a
    bit of that cash in upgrading your training facilities as they are not only 
    the worst in the league but also as bad as you could get! To be honest though
    they are not alone in this, most teams at this level will have pretty woeful
    training facilities for their first team and reserves, though surprisingly
    their youth facilities are usually markedly better!

    why, it looked pretty bleak up there. If you're in a decent financial position
    still at the end of the season you'll want to sort these out to get the most
    out of your players, coaches and training schedules. To be honest though, most
    of the training facilities in this league are pretty woeful, so I'll save 
    myself the time and not repeat this every single time. To be honest you should
    have noticed anyway!

    Notes: Ground can be expanded by 4000. This team have got their wages sorted
    out nicely. Once you have dumped the useless U18s from your club you should
    have a fair bit to play with. Don't go too mad, you don't want other players
    demanding parity with that new guy you just signed on 500 a week, though
    at least there will be scope here to bring in a few guys on a bit more cash if
    you can entice them in the first place.This club has excellent youth training
    facilities for this level though so you should definitely look to take 
    advantage of this if you are planning a long game with this club by sorting
    yourself out with some decent youth coaches.

    money given that you will be in the red within a week! Wage cuts across the
    board are essential here (that's something you'll hear me saying a lot in this
    FAQ!). This club has excellent youth training facilities for this level though 
    so you should definitely look to take advantage of this if you are planning a 
    long game with this club by sorting yourself out with some decent youth 
    coaches.

    Notes: Ground can be expanded by 5000. Club is affiliated with Huddersfield, 
    make sure that you take full advantage of this. You might get lucky with 
    Huddersfield, or whoever you are affiliated sending you a few decent players
    but you should definitely be pro-active in this area. Go for anyone and 
    everyone in their reserves (or first team later in the season who doesn't seem 
    to be getting a game) it won't annoy anyone at your club, nor will continual
    rejection affect the affiliation and you never know who you might get. On a
    tight budget, don't be afraid to offer 0 a week for a player you want on 
    loan, even if you want him for the whole season, they still might accept if he
    is young and they want him to gain first team experience. The chairman is only,
    'enjoying his time at the club', so there is an outside chance of a takeover a
    few seasons into the game.

    Notes: Decent transfer budget. Darren Caskey needs to take a big wage cut. At 
    31 he isn't going to be doing that much and his physical stats are risible. You
    might want to consider Craig Westcarr's future too. He hasn't quite got the 
    finishing and could bring in a tidy sum. Ground can be expanded by 6100. Just
    try not to be so dumb as to let Gazza (or G8 or whatever the man is calling

    Notes: The media expectation is massively overblown for a club with players of
    this standard. Either get rid of Duane Darby or cut his wage by at least half 
    as he is a big drain on the wage budget and not really up to it. Club is 
    affiliated with Coventry and you should try to make use of this. The transfer
    budget is pretty decent and you shouldn't be afraid of spending it as the club
    have the finance to back it up, however even getting rid of the made up U18 
    players will hardly give you a bean to spend on wages, so you definitely need
    to shift a lot of dead wood before you splash out. If you can't get rid of them
    for cash then just free transfer them, again, you can afford it. The first
    season might be a bit of a struggle but once you've pruned a bit the second 
    should be a bit of a doddle. This club has excellent youth training
    facilities for this level though so you should definitely look to take 
    advantage of this if you are planning a long game with this club by sorting
    yourself out with some decent youth coaches. Nuneaton have the best youth
    facilities in the whole division actually.

    Notes: This team is in a real mess and it would be a miracle if they stayed up.
    They are in debt to the tune of 16k and 700 per week over their wage budget. 
    If this wasn't enough they have a loan debt of 1.5 million! Ingram needs a big
    wage cut or get rid of him. Sell anyone you can for money except perhaps 
    Whittington as he has decent finishing. Thankfully they are affiliated with 
    footballing giants Whitby. Useless! The board and fan expectations are one of 
    the few in this division that are unreasonable. The squad is really weak and 
    it will take a considerable effort to get into a halfway decent league 
    position. The chairman is, unsurprisingly, willing to listen to offers, so you
    might get a bit lucky and get a takeover quite early in the game which could 
    help out your finances.

    Notes: Ground can be expanded by 9000. Mark Danks isn't really worth his 300 a
    week and can be got rid of for nothing as he is out of contract. Just joining 
    the club reduces the wage bill by 300 as useless player manager Andy Preece 
    gets the boot. A general wage cut all round would help here as the average 
    first team wage is over 200 per week.

    worth anything and you're stuck with a 2500 capacity stadium. No real reason
    to manage this team unless you're from Workington!

    Notes: You need to get back into the black ASAP as you are both over your wage
    budget and 1.5k in the red. I'd advise selling Steve Robinson, he's eating up
    300 a week and is worth a bit of cash. Other than that the squad is your 
    average Conference North side. Keep hold of Steve Wilson. Even though cashing 
    in on him might be tempting he is one of the best goalies in the league. The 
    ground can be expanded by 3000.

    Notes: The big challenge for Lower League Managers for the last couple of years
    according to several websites, and still a popular pick if the threads on 
    Gamefaqs, though I'm not sure why. They're an OK team but nothing special 
    either in terms of ease, difficulty, state of finances, wages. I haven't got
    anything against them but they just seem like a middling team. Luke Nightingale
    is a strong striker though so may be that's why. I certainly wouldn't let him
    go for less than 30k. I'm not sure why the board and fans are so negative.
    I mean, Bognor are not the worlds best team but they aren't bad, they have 
    quite a decent strike force for this level and you really shouldn't be down the
    bottom of the league with this team. This is probably a good team for those new
    to lower league management to start off with as the expectaions will allow you
    a little more time to get your head around things.

    Notes: Decent youth facilities for this level, so you'll want to take

    a couple of decent youth coaches. Their finances aren't amazing but they are in
    the black, their wage structure is sensible but the players are quite weak
    overall, so the first season should be one of rebuilding.

    to bring you in under budget as it won't cost you anything. This is another
    good club for the player who is new to lower league management. Like Bognor,
    this team is not going to set the world alight and there finances are not as 
    strong as other clubs but they have a much better squad than the media and the
    fans and board would seem to appreciate.

    Notes: Farnborough are in trouble financially. Get rid of all youth players,   
    which will save you around 600 a week in wages. Sell anyone you can to get 
    back in the black. Wage cuts all round too. Ground can be expanded by 6000, but
    4400 has been used. This is one team for the experts only. The 10 point 
    deduction with which they start means the 4th place prediction is a big, big 
    ask. The board and the fans don't seem to have taken this into account either
    and with a squad as mediocre as this and no money available whatsoever, you'll
    be hard pressed to satisfy them.

    Notes: Not a great team at the moment but a lot of potential for a team of this
    level, if you can keep them in the league and have a good training setup then 
    you can begin to move up the league pretty easily without having to spend any 
    money. 825 a week can be saved by clearing out the whole U18 team all of which
    will be pretty much useless. This club has excellent youth training
    facilities for this level though so you should definitely look to take 
    advantage of this if you are planning a long game with this club by sorting
    yourself out with some decent youth coaches.

    Notes: You can lose Craig Watkins and Tony Taggart for a 600 a week saving for
    nothing as they are both out of contract at the start. Another 500 can be 
    saved by free transferring Justin Gregory if you wish as he is also out of 
    contract but he is a decent left back at this level and getting near his peak. 
    Try to sell Darren Annon in the reserves if you can for another 350 saving but
    he is a reasonable central defender so you might want to bring him into the 
    first team if you have made savings elsewhere already. Howells and Wilson-Denis
    could bring in 6k together if you sell them from the reserves. They are not 
    up to it. The ground can be expanded by 2000. They have the best youth 
    facilities at this level in England. The team is also affiliated with 
    Portsmouth bringing in a decent sum a year for the friendly. Make use of their
    reserves too! The media predicition is somewhat overblown, but at least the 
    board and fans seem to have a better understanding of the true status of their
    club.

    Difficulty (/10):
    
    Notes: Will Hendry is the best person in the squad and although young is 
    definitely ready for first team action. Sell anyone else you want and get rid 
    of the U18s as usual especially given the low level of your youth facilities. 
    The ground can be expanded by 4000. Though the training facilities for both 
    the first team and youth are pretty woeful, the clubs finances are OK and
    though the wage budget is a bit tight, it is sensible for this level and no 
    one is over-paid so this club is in a good financial situation and would
    provide a decent challenge.

    Denny King at all though he is an extremely promising players and could turn 
    into one of the best players in the this league or the conference and at 16 
    still has the time to do this. Knight-Percival (another quality name) is not 
    quite as promising and a couple of years older but still worth developing.

    Notes: Wow! A team in the Conference South that starts with any form of   
    transfer budget. Also being 500 under the wage budget gives you plenty of 
    scope to bring in new players, especially once you've got rid of all the U18 
    players as usual. Save another 160 a week getting rid of Sigre, a striker who 
    couldn't hit a barn door and you should find yourself with a good 1200 a week 
    in wages to play with. That coupled with the 5k transfer budget means you can 
    bring in pretty much whoever you like. No excuses for not doing well with this 
    team 107k finances is a fortune at this level! The ground can be expanded by 
    5000 too. This club has excellent youth training facilities for this level 
    though so you should definitely look to take advantage of this if you are 
    planning a long game with this club by sortingyourself out with some decent 
    youth coaches. A decent team for those new to lower league management to take 
    on.  They have a well above average squad anf the board and fan expectations
    mean that you have a little more time to get to grips with things before the 
    pressure starts to mount.

    Notes: Newport are a real Jekyll and Hyde team. They have some great players 
    for this level. Namely the key players listed plus Jason Bowen they also have 
    some real stinkers clogging up the side and taking home far too much money a 
    week. you'll need to sort yourself out with another keeper as Ovendale and 
    Pennock are too old and too rubbish. Hopefully you can get 10k for the pair. 
    Lee Jenkins needs a big wage cut and should probably be offloaded too. Darren 
    Garner could take a cut too as though he is not bad he is earning a lot more 
    than the squad average. The ground can be expanded by a massive 15000 though. 
    The best thins about Newport is their affiliation with none other than 
    Manchester United. You have to take advantage of this! Another team for the 
    lower league management n00bs out there. If you can sort out the dead wood,
    maybe get a couple of cheap players in with that 2k you have to spend and get
    a couple of players in from Man U (if they'll come) there is no need to be 
    fighting bravely!

    Notes: Oh my god! Who on earth was in charge of handing out the contracts here?
    !?! The reserve team wage budget is 1500 a week and there's only seven players
    ! Definitely lose all U18 players. OK you may have a huge wage budget for this 
    level and be well under it but you don't even have the cash to pay 5 day's 
    wages let alone one week! Everyone needs a wage cut of at least a third. If 
    they won't take it then offload them. Thankfully most players have some sort of
    cash value so you might be able to buy a little time in terms of going into 
    the red if you can offload them. Stevens, Hodgson, Middleton and Matthews 
    should go as a matter of course which will save you 600 a week, but you 
    shouldn't feel bad about letting anyone other than the key players and Paul 
    Sales go if they won't take a cut. In the reserves Cook needs to go ASAP for 
    another 300 a week saving. You also need to have words with your player coach
    Tommy Widdrington. He's on 600 a week which is a joke. If he won't take 300
    then mutual termination should be your next step, though he is not too bad even 
    though he is old so you might want to think twice about it if you've already 
    got rid of a load of players. You might want to terminate Cockerill's loan too 
    as it's 350 a week for not very much. this is definitely a team punching well 
    above their weight. Did they not learn from Leeds's example a few years ago?!
    This club has excellent youth trainingfacilities for this level though so you 
    should definitely look to take advantage of this if you are planning a long 
    game with this club by sorting yourself out with some decent youth coaches.
    If you have the facepack from sortitoutsi then you will have seen Matt Tubbs
    picture, one of the cheesiest in FM in my opinion!

    Notes: This is an awful team, god knows why the media predict they'll finish

    get rid of everyone except Matt Gray from all three teams, though even he is 
    not really that good and if you can get 16-20k for him then you might want to
    sell him too. Not the best of squads to achieve a respectable league position,
    even with the money available this is a team for those who have a little 
    experiance at this level.

    will bring in about 40k (I have already played a game as Thurrock) which means
    you should end the season in the black) but you won't see any of it for

    Difficulty (/10): 5
    
    Notes: First off, do not let Danny Kedwell go under any circumstances. In my   
    opinion he is the best striker in either of the Conference feeder leagues, with
    outstanding finishing, great flair, first touch and penalty taking and pretty 
    decent dribbling, free kicks, bravery, composure, off the ball and positioning.
    Only let down by some less than average physical stats but his stamina is 
    acceptable. It's a shame about his height and heading other wise he would make 
    an excellent target man but you should find someone who can play this position 
    and have Kedwell running off him for goals aplenty. You need to have words with
    Jamie Day. Why is he on 750 a week? He needs to be on no more than 200 or get
    rid of him. Chris Moore is on 400 a week and is utterly useless. Luckily he is 
    out of contract so get rid of him! Ben Lewis is on 300 a week and out of 
    contract but he is pretty decent so make sure you sign him up, but not for 300
    a week. The ground can be expanded by 4000.

    "f*****g s****e"! Says it all really. Really impossible to say what to do with
    this team, just hope for the best. If you're going to go for any of the free
    players on my list do so quickly and go for all of them, you don't want to go 
    for one or two whom you think you would like and find that some other 
    unscrupulous third division team, or worse, junior team snaps them up 
    because the player thinks you're not good enough. It is essential to get rid
    of the youth players in this squad unless by some miracle there is someone 
    worth keeping (there won't be) to do your bewst to avoid slipping further into 
    the red. There is no one worth anything here, but if you can get a grand or two
    for Chaplain then do it. Other than that your only hope for getting back into 
    the black is to land a lucky away cup draw against Rangers or Celtic.

    at any cost. Bring Willie Martin out of the reserves as a good backup striker. 
    The ground can be expanded by 10000 but 4131 has already been used. This club

    Notes: The reserves wage bill is nearly 1500 a week for a large number of    
    players none of whom you actually want or need. Sort this out straight away. 
    If you don't get another keeper in quick make sure you sign Paul Moody who is 
    out of contract at the start. He's OK. Stephen Dobbie the loan signing is 
    simply awesome for this level. His loan runs out in December so do whatever it 
    takes to extend this to the end of the season. The ground can be expanded by 
    4000 but 2100 of this has already been used. Even with the excellent Stephen
    Dobbie this is a big ask when nothing but silverware will suffice, especially 
    when the club is in precarious financial straits. The club chairman is, 
    understandably willing to listen to offers so you might get lucky and have
    your finances sorted out pretty early on in the game.

    Notes: 395 a week being wasted in the reserves. No big deal really but you 
    wont want any of the players. Craig O'Reilly is pretty decent on loan and he's 
    there for the season so you don't need to do any thing here cos you're not 
    paying for him! Re-negotiate Scott Crabbe's contract. Even though he is player 
    coach 500 a week is ridiculous. He's OK but he's 37. Re-negotiate for no more 
    than 150. Jablonski's wage should also be halved. This club has pretty solid
    finances for a team at this level and a sensible wage structure should ensure
    that you stay in the black. The best challenge for this club is to try to
    achieve the legendary result of East Fife 5 - Forfar 4! The club chairman is, 
    understandably willing to listen to offers so you might get lucky and have
    your finances sorted out pretty early on in the game.

    Notes: Ah! East Stirling, my second team. Such a shame that the programmers got
    pretty much all the information about the club wrong. If you're playing as them
    you may or may not wish to amend the details (those you can at least). Firstly
    the capacity of Firs Park is 1880 not 781. The seating at the ground is 200 not
    245.  The figures for facilities and youth setup are vastly overrated. I 
    wouldn't wish to slight East Stirlingshire by saying they should both be 1 but 
    I certainly would not have either of them higher than 3. The estimated value of
    the club is actually closer to 1m as the club own their own ground. In fact,
    this is one of the major bones of contention at the club, with the hardcore
    fans convinced that the only reason Chairman Alan Mackin and his family (who
    are by far and away the biggest shareholders) still maintain any interest in
    the club is that they wish to sell the ground, the clubs only asset, split the
    proceeds between the majority shareholders (i.e. the Mackin clan) and then
    disappear leaving the club with very little money from the sale as the 
    remaining shareholders own very little in terms of percentage. The club would
    effectively be homeless.
    
    Furthermore, since 2003 chairman Alan Mackin instituted a 10 a week wage 
    policy. As such all players on salaries greater than that need to have them 
    reduced to 10 (I suppose regardless what the board say you should never offer 
    a player more than 10 until there is a takeover ;-) ). The average crowd at 
    Firs Park to Feb 07 is actually 313 (don't pretend you don't want that extra 
    cash!). Also how on earth could the media predict that East Stirling would 
    finish 6th?!? This is the team that finished bottom of the third division  
    the last two years and only a win on the last day of last season saved them 
    the ignominy of having the worst ever results in the Scottish league. Should be
    tenth without question. 
    
    The wage budget is right and the reason you're so far over it is because the 
    randomly generated youth players are all on a lot more than the first team 
    players and their 10 a week salary!. This is a pain as this is one of the very
    few clubs where most of these players are not demonstrably worse than the real 
    guys! Still you'll have to get rid of them if you want any chance of getting 
    back into the red.
    
    Players wise the only person worth keeping is Learmouth. Transfer list everyone
    else and accept all offers. You might as well keep Wild as you're not paying 
    anything for his loan and even though he is really not that great you should 
    try to extend his loan beyond december as to be honest he is probably going to
    be better than any other defenders who would be interested in joining the club.
    
    Furthermore the expectations are grossly overrated. I dont believe there is a 
    genuine East Stirling fan out there who believes the club will escape the 
    lower reaches of the third division in the next few years. Also the board must
    be expecting something approaching a miracle if they think you are going to 
    finish anywhere other than the bottom few places! Nevertheless, those are the 
    expectations so this is strictly a team for the experts amongst you!
    
    The club chairman is, understandably willing to listen to offers so you might 
    get lucky and have your finances sorted out pretty early on in the game.

    Notes: God knows how you would save a team this much in debt when there is so  
    little money available at this level. Selling your players would normally be a 
    good idea but it would barely make a dent in you debt. Personally I don't think
    it matters whether you get rid of players or not. I would just carry on 
    blithely ignoring the debt and pray for a miracle. Chris Finnigan might be good
    but that's about it! Pretty much the only good thing to say about Elgin is 
    that their ground can be expanded by a whopping 20000, how they would afford it
    is anyone's guess though! This club has excellent youth training
    facilities for this level though so you should definitely look to take 
    advantage of this if you are planning a long game with this club by sorting
    yourself out with some decent youth coaches. Quite how the fans expect you to 
    invest in new players when the club is nearly 200k in the red is a mystery to 
    me but at least it means they won't give you to much hassle if things aren't
    going so well but given that the chairman apparently loves the club, you'd 
    think he would show this love and put some of his money where his mouth is!

    Notes: Greig Henslee is a promising player and worth holding onto but he could 
    do with a wage cut to bring him down to the level of the other decent players 
    at the club. Try not to be tempted to cash in on Michie's price tag (at least 
    not for less than 30k. Also Higgins can turn into a quality defender that 
    could play at least a couple of divisions higher if he is coached properly. The
    ground can be expanded by 10000, but 1334 of this has been used to put in some
    seating. A better team than Albion Rovers. Couple this with the fact that no
    one associated with the club expects you to do well makes this a decent team if
    you are inexperienced in the world of lower league management.

    Difficulty (/10): 3
    
    Notes: Make no mistake, this is THE team to start off with if you want to 
    experience lower league management. Admittedly the game does make quite a major
    mistake with the ground in the sense that when Queen's Park play at Hampden 
    most of the ground is actually closed and supporters are only allowed in 
    certain areas, so you might want to create a new ground in the editor with a 
    reduced capacity but it's up to you. I suppose if Queen's Park got into the SPL
    then they would make more use of the ground. 
    
    Squad wise they are woeful even for the third division. 250 a week can be 
    saved by free transferring the out of contract players and several player are 
    actually on 0 a week! Get rid of anyone you can bar the two good young players
    (though they are really not that good either).
    
    Though the wage budget is quite restrictive the amount of money you have means 
    you should be able to hoover up the cream of the third division players from 
    other clubs and have little trouble getting promoted. Be aware though that the 
    club has an 8.5m loan debt.
    
    One other change you might want to make to the database is that the reserve and
    youth teams do not in fact play at Hampden. They play at a ground called 
    Lesser Hampden which is in fact right next door 
    (http://maps.google.com/?ie=UTF8&z=18&ll=55.825663,-4.255518&spn=0.002281,0.005
    032&t=h&om=1) this has a capacity of 1000. You might wish to create this ground
    . To be honest this is a really interesting club in real life and I recommend 
    you check out their Wikipedia article here: 
    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Queen's_Park_F.C. 
    
    The history of Lesser Hampden is also quite interesting.
    (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lesser_Hampden). It was originally a farm but was
    converted to a football ground when Queen's Park wanted somewhere for their 
    lower teams to play. The club actually kept the original farmhouse and utilised
    it as their club house and changing rooms and still do. There was some concern
    during World War II that it would be re-converted to a farm if there was a 
    national food shortage but this never happened. A few years ago the club also
    had to fork out 20000 to clear up the ground when it was discovered that the 
    earth was contaminated with Chromium. The fact that they could afford to do 
    this is evidence that their in game finances are accurate.
    
    This club has far and away the best training facilities in the division so make
    sure you get some decent coaches in and set up a decent training regime to 
    take advantage of them.
    
    If you needed any more reason to have a go with the Chelsea of the Scottish
    third division, then you need look no further than the fact that even though
    they have all this cash available, they don't expect you to do anything other
    than languish in mid table mediocrity.

    Notes: This is probably the second best team in the division after Queen's 
    Park. The first team is in the main strong. John Baird is a decent loan signing 
    but is only on loan until January so you might want to extend this. David 
    Templeton is a promising young player. 140 a week can be saved by getting rid 
    of the four out of contract players in the reserves and first team, you don't 
    need them. This club has excellent youth training facilities for this level 
    though so you should definitely look to take advantage of this if you are 
    planning a long game with this club by sorting yourself out with some decent 
    youth coaches.

    though you're not paying for them as they are all awful and some of the worst 
    players in you side. The team is afiliated with Padova and Vicenza. Not a bad 
    side for your first forays into lower league management in Italy. A reasonable 
    squad and certainly not one that should be at the bottom of the league come 
    the end of the season.

    Zubin is not really up to it to be honest and you might wish to cash in on him.
    Also don't be afraid to lose your half interest in Altebrando as he is a pretty
    poor keeper. The club is affiliated with Brescia. Great Youth facilities means
    that you should definitely get hold of the best youth coaches you can ASAP and
    sort out a decent training regime to take full advantage of these facilities.

    Notes: Rossi is a player with potential, but you won't see any of it during his
    season long loan so you might as well get rid of him. You might also want to 
    have a good think about Fabbrini's future. He is on more tha ntwice the salary 
    of his nearest rival, and whilst he is a decent player for this level, you 
    could get someone just as good if not better for less than the 110k you should
    be able to get for him. The ground can be expanded by 6700 and the club is
    affiliated with Torino.

    Notes: Again this is a club that has a load of appalling loan players on its 
    books. You're not paying anything for them but they're useless so you might as
    well let them go. This club had a sensible wage structure and shouldn't go into
    the red too quickly if you're careful, but the league position predicted by the
    media seems a little excessive, for what is not a very great squad. The best 
    thing about this team is they are affiliated to AC Milan, so make as much
    use of that as you can! The chairman is willing to listen to offers so you
    might see a takeover pretty soon in the game which could prove a big boost as
    the club is in quite a decent position financially.

    you can terminate his deal. the main thing you need to do hear is sign at 
    least one more keeper. Gianelli and La Macchia wouldn't even cut it at East
    Stirling.

    Notes: You need to sort out the wage budget if you want to take advantage of 
    the decent transfer budget. Around 1500 a week can be saved in the usual way
    by immediately offloading all the rubbish youth players, but you should bear in
    mind that this team has decent youth facilities so you might want to take a 
    closer look before making any decision. Also have a look at Biancospino in the 
    reserves as he is eating up 1.1k a week on his own and you have a much
    better left winger in Rebecchi (though he is out for up to two months at the 
    start of the game. You might also want to think about cashing in on Morini. 
    He's worth a lot at this level and is punching above his weight in my opinion.
    The club is affiliated with Brescia.
    
    There is clearly a major breakdown in communications at this club given the 
    great disparity between the fan and board expectations. There is absolutely no
    way that this club should be down the bottom of the league at the end of the
    season, but, whilst they are strong, it's a lot to expect that the team will
    definitely finish in the number one position. A decent challenge, but not one 
    that you will necessarily need a vast amount of experience to succeed at.

    moment and also the most promising. The club is affiliated with Brescia.

    Difficulty (/10): 7
    
    Notes: This team is financially in a precarious position. Whilst Oliveira is
    the best player you have at the moment there is no way he is worth 4k a week 
    especially at his age. Mandl is a quality keeper and is worth 2k, but Oliveira 
    should at least be brought down to Mandl's level or offloaded as the financial 
    state of the club will not allow you to fork out 16k a month for one player. 
    The key thing with this team is to find some decent youth, all the best players 
    you have are way on the wrong side of thirty, including former Middlesborough 
    favourite Gianluca Festa. The chairman is not in love with the club so there
    is an outside possibility that a takeover might occur in the first few seasons.

    Notes: A difficult team to get to grips with, they have a much bigger squad

    is the order of the day here. Polverino should go as he has risible technical 
    stats as does Manca, Pipito, Castioni, Orlandi and pretty much everyone worth 
    less than them can be sold.

    the start of the game, it literally means that the club have NO training 
    facilities at all!?!? You might want to get on the case with this one! You can 
    also lose loan signings Rossi, Sorlini and Provenzi as they are all rubbish. 
    You'll definitely need to sort yourself out with another goalkeeper too as 
    Girelli is woeful and isnt going to be getting any better either. The club is a 
    feeder club for Atalanta and Genoa and a parent club of Bergamo Cenate.

    is a solid defender though and you should do your best to hold onto him. The 
    ground can be expanded by 2500. If you take over this side you will definitely
    be pleased with all the slack the board and fans are willing to grant you! The
    chairman is only 'happy' at the club so keep an eye out for a potential
    takeover.

    Difficulty (/10): 4
    
    Notes: This is a decent team with a good mix of youth and experience. The club 
    is financially sound, but some of the players are taking home a little too much 
    cash. Massimo Carrera is a good defender for this level but he is way, way past 
    his prime and should not be taking home 18k a month! Scalzo at 2.6k a week is 
    probably on a grand a week too much for a player of his age at this level and if
    you could get rid of the same offMirko Benin's salary and halve Carrera's then 
    you would have nearly 4k a week to spend on salaries for new players. As seems
     to be the trend in this division the goalkeeping is woeful. Castagnone is 
    pretty poor but a servicable reserve keeper for this level, but he is the first
    choice keeper here and his deputy Guarino is better off watching football at 
    this level than playing it!

    isn't that bad but his finishing sucks so you might want to consider cashing in

    Notes: Sassari Torres are new to the league having been relegated from C1/B the 
    last season. They are a decent team however and have a decent set of loan siging
     to backup their admittedly small proper squad. Do not under any circumstaces 
    let Alessio Ciano go as he is a great prospect for any club and could turn out 
    to be one of th best players outside of the top flight in a few years. The club 
    is affiliated to Juventus, so you may want to review who you have as your loan 
    signings and see if you want to take a gamble and get rid of some of them and 
    try to get some of Juve's reserves in instead. Sassari TOrres start the game 
    with a two point deduction, though this is clearly not that big a deal! The
    media prediction is perhaps a bit bold, but you should do more than achieve
    respectable results in this division with this squad and you should have no 
    trouble winning round the fans.

    Notes: An interesting team with high expectations seeing as they were only 
    promoted from Serie D Group 4 at the end of last season. However their 
    affiliation with Milan could prove useful in terms of players and the annual 
    friendly should bring in some money, though its not like it is massviely needed.
    A decent amount left in the wage budget will allow you to splash out on some 
    players and you might want to go for experience given that this is a young 
    squad. Do your best not to sell Savoldi unless the offer is to good to refuse 
    as he is one of the best, if not THE best strikers at this level.

    Notes: This is a strange team as it has a huge amount of loan players in it's
    first team squad. Out of all of them Renan Pippi is far and away the best and 
    is a quality at this level. he's only valued at 45k so if you can persuade 
    him to join permanantly you should definitely do so. The stadium can be
    expanded by 2000. The club is also affiliated with Cesena and Triestina.

    Notes: Although this team is new to the league having been promoted from
    Serie D the season before, thte team is not as weak as you would think. Many
    of the players are of Serie C2 standard and the presence of Krasimir 
    Chomakov means you have a decent defensive midfielder to give extra support
    to your defence.

    Notes: This is a decent team at this level. Good finances will mean that you 
    can bring in several other players if you feel that you need to and the
    remaining wage budget will help you with that. Your two co-owened players in
    your first team are both pretty useful so I would do my best not to let them
    go. The team has two useful affiliations with Genoa and Verona.

    Notes: The media expectations for this team are vastly out of proportion to 
    what the club is genuinely capable of producing in their current state. Binho
    and Dazzi are both reasonable players but the team is not in a strong position
    financially and there miniscule ground with no means of expanding it will 
    further hamper your financial development. The complete lack of any training
    facilities is also going to prevent your players reaching their potential
    fully so you will need to address this straight away. Luckily the chairman is
    willing to listen to offers so you may well find a takeover occurring which
    could help you out immeasurably. The club is a feeder club to Serie C1 side
    Massesi.

    Difficulty (/10): 2
    
    Notes: This is an excellent team for new Lower League Managers to start with.
    The team has loads and loads of money and a large wage budget and an 
    unbelievable transfer budget for this level. The squad is very large, but six
    of the players are loan signings whom you aren't paying anything and to be
    honest there is no one in the first team squad whom one would immediately
    say wasn't good enough at this level. You could probably lose most of the U20
    team players if you wanted to as they are not really that good, but be aware
    that Cisco have very good youth facilities so there may well be one or two gems
    in there. Cisco are the parent team of two Serie D teams: Monterotondo and Spes
    Mentana, but more importantly are a feeder team for Roma. Their ground can be
    expanded by 4000.

    Difficulty (/10): 8
    
    Notes: This is a pretty poor team. Stefani is a useful defensive midfielder
    and should be able to provide some useful cover for your defence and Banchelli 
    and Graziani are a decent strike partnership but as we have seen from the likes
    of Cisco Roma, they are far from the best in the league. Their ground is 
    miniscule and has no capability for expansion. Definitely a tough team to take
    places. The team is a feeder club for Empoli.

    Notes: This is a very difficult team to manage, having just come up from Serie

    near good enough to justify such a salary. Scarpa is banned until January for
    being a very naughty boy presumably. Beyond that there is no one in the
    squad other than Vicedomini who is worth keeping hold of. The team is 
    affiliated to Cavese.

    Notes: How the Mighty have fallen! With the exception of Cisco Roma this is the

    have heard of. You might want to trim the wage budget a little though as even
    though the budget is generous the club is not exactly in the best position 
    financially. Cingolani really isn't up to it, even though he has good mental
    and physical stats his technical stats are awful and you would be better off
    trying to get that 80k for him. Beyond that the club are pretty decent with no
    real weak links.

    Obviously this is not an exclusive list, and you should bear in mind that the 
    value listed is not necessarily their sale value, you'll have to work that out 
    for yourself, I'm not doing all the work for you! Also bear in mind that just 
    because someone is valued at 0 doesn't mean they are necessarily available for
    free, they just cost less than 500. They may be out of contract, but again 
    you'll have to check that out yourself. Obviously, remember that you'll have to
    pay a fee for youth players if you attempt to sign them (rather than just 
    making an offer). Note that Promising players are players under twenty, decent 
    players, over twenty.
    
    Players listed as being worth 1k may well be in fact be worth between 500
    and 1499, but they are listed as 1k as that is how they will appear in the
    game.
    
    Players on loan at these lower division clubs will not be listed here.
    
    Notes from ssjpaine relate to a lower league game he played in Belgium.

    new game in the course of making this FAQ to make sure they weren't a fluke
    generation) so you might want to take it with a pinch of salt but I think it's
    still a pretty good guide.

    *This guy never has great stats in the start of the game but is young and very 
    promising for a lower league club. If you can get a decent full time training
    schedule put together quickly he is definitely worth signing. I remember him
    from the previous FM and he was a pretty similar player.

    The players here are not split according to what league they play in. Even
    though the junior level of Scottish football is split into several leagues,
    (e.g. Highland league) the game just refers to all these players as "Scottish
    Non-League".

    *You absolutely must get hold of this guy. I have played several scottish
    games and every single time this guy has been quality and could easily play a
    supporting role in the Scottish First Division. He is far and away the best 
    player in Scottish Junior football.
    
    ** This guy at first glance looks rubbish and he is pretty old but he is a very
    worthwhile striker to get. He has great finishing and heading, is very tall and
    has great jumping and strength. In other words he's is the ideal lower league
    slugger and makes a great target man. I bought him in my Thurrock game and he 
    scored well over 30 goals in the season with nearly as many assists.
    
    *** Another guy I had in my Thurrock game. A decent right winger. Takes a good
    free kick too.

    There is no league named here because although the game has catagories for
    the lower divisions of the respective state championships, the clubs that play
    in them are not assigned to a particular league.
    
    Apologies for length, but as I am sure you are aware the Brazilian league is 
    far and away the biggest in the game and as such whilst there are a lot of clubs
    that play below the third division, there are consequently  also a lot of 
    players at those clubs who could easily make it in the third division if not 
    higher.
    
    I am going to be a lot more selective with the promising players, since firstly
    the difference between third and fourth division ability is minimal and 
    secondly there are many young brazilian players who have a considerable 
    difference between their current and potential ability which they will never
    eradicate. Also, as many of them can be bought for nothing it will be easier for
    most teams, even the relatively poor ones to pick up a few promising players. 
    The players in this have been filtered so they are potentially proportionally 
    more promising than those already in the third division than promising players 
    from other countries would be when comapred to those playing in their respective
    lower league.

    *This player is an excellent purchase for a lower league. His stats don't look
    that great but he is extremely promising. I bought him in my Thurrock game and
    he was worth 110k before we had even got out of the Conference South. An 
    excellent midfielder for lower league managers and also looks like he could
    bring in a bit of cash when sold!

    *Note by GameFAQs ssjpaine: Great centre back, eventually earned his first 
    three caps for Bolivia in the three seasons he spent with me. His high stats 
    include jumping, marking, strength, tackling, aggression, bravery and 
    concentration. Played 35 league games in his first season with an average 
    rating of 7.32. Only problem is he is ambitious and eventually will probably 
    make the move to a much bigger club. A top signing.

    season. Has been fans player of the season two years running.

    *Note from GameFAQs ssjpaine: Lima is a 6'4 beast of a centreback at the age of
    16. He's also good enough for most of the first teams in the Belgian lower 
    leagues. He adapts quickly and is fairly loyal. His highest stats include 
    Marking, Bravery and Corners.

    *Note from GameFAQs' ssjpaine: Burda was a young player I signed when looking 
    for youth, he came in January and finished as reserve league top goalscorer. 
    In season 2 I had a striker crisis and he played 5 games, scoring 4 goals in 
    the act. A great prospect, has high stats in Finishing, Free Kicks, Long Throws
    (not particularly useful), Flair, Teamwork and Stamina. Has a fairly 
    professional personality and adapts quickly.

    These are players who do not come from the non-manageable leagues of the
    countries specifically dealt with in this FAQ. I will not personally be 
    contributing any players to this list except those that I have specific 
    experience of in my FM games as I want to concentrate specifically on the 
    countries listed above. These players have all been contributed by others from 
    the GameFAQs Football Manager 2007 forum.

    *Note from GameFAQs' ssjpaine: Great centre back, eventually earned his first 
    three caps for Bolivia in the three seasons he spent with me. His high stats 
    include jumping, marking, strength, tackling, aggression, bravery and 
    concentration. Played 35 league games in his first season with an average 
    rating of 7.32. Only problem is he is ambitious and eventually will probably 
    make the move to a much bigger club. A top signing.

    Marko Zelenika		Kamen Ingrad	Croatia - Professional	16k	MC
    Tihomir Zivkovic	HNK Cibalia	Croatia - Professional	6k	ST
    
    
    *Note from GameFAQs' ssjpaine: Vellemaa is a player who will tear up just about
    every defence in the bottom two leagues, he could probably cut it in the top 
    league to be fair too. Earned his first 12 caps for Estonia in two seasons 
    under me. Scored 4, assisted 12 and earned 3 MoM awards in 24 first season 
    games with an average rating of 7.38. He has a fairly determined personality 
    which is very effective. Has very high stats in Corners, Dribbling, First 
    Touch, Creativity and Teamwork. Main problems tended to be that he seemed 
    rather prone to injuries, and once the big clubs come sniffing in for him 
    (which they certainly will) he starts to moan, a LOT. 
    
    **Note from GameFAQs' ssjpaine: Delev has a rare gift not often seen in the 
    lower leagues. He has a decent weaker foot! This generally means he scores from
    dodgy angles a lot more than most of the LLM strikers in Belgium, Delev was 
    forced into the first team in season 1 after i had a striker crisis. He scored 
    4 in 9 games, not bad for a 16 year old. He seems to be more of a playmaker 
    forward, has high stats in determination and flair. Quite a balanced striker.
    
    ***Note from GameFAQs' ssjpaine: The best goalkeeper around in LLM! This man is
    a god between the sticks, or kid? He starts the game at 16 which high stats in 
    Handling, Reflexes, Agility, Determination, One On Ones and Natural Fitness. 
    Rarely gets injured and is seems quite loyal. His quick saves in tense moments 
    will win you many matches or salvage many draws. His stats are immense for the 
    amount you will pay and the age he is. He is a MUST SIGN player. One of the 
    best no doubt.
    
    ***Note from SonofFenix: I have to agree with ssjpaine, this goalie is good.
    Although you should note that he is of such a standard that you may struggle to
    get him to come to your lower league club. I tried for over a year to sign him
    at Thurrock but he just wasn't interested. He is good though and will be in a
    large database game with no need to specifically load Polish players.
    
    ****Notefrom SonofFenix: This is another excellent goalkeeper for the lower
    leagues and in my opinion a little better overall than Czaplinski (though I
    concede that Czaplinski has better Reflexes and Handling, though not by much).

    This may be not be reproduced under any circumstances except for personal, 
    private use. It may not be placed on any web site or otherwise distributed 
    publicly without advance written permission. Use of this guide on any other 
    website or as a part of any public display is strictly prohibited, and a 
    violation of copyright. 
    
    Normally I take the policy with the other few FAQs I have written under my 
    previous name of Fenix Down (which can be found here: ) that I don't really
    care what you do with any of the content in my FAQs. However in this instance
    I'm going to have to put my foot down. Partly because this FAQ is an awful lot 
    longer than anything I have written before and consequently has taken a 
    considerable amount of time to write, and secondly, and more importantly, 
    because whilst this FAQ is all my own work its style has been designed to
    deliberately reflect that of a pre-existing FM FAQ (Inferno's if you just 
    jumped straight to the copywrite section for some reason and haven't read any
    of what I have written!) and as such it would be unfair to allow something 
    that has in effect been partly designed by him to be distributed willy-nilly!
    
    As such if you want to host this FAQ then please email me first for permission.
    The email's at the top of the FAQ. Please include "FM2007 LLM FAQ Request" in 
    the title line. As long as you're not from one of these sites:
    
    
    - 911 Codes (http://911codes.com) 
    - 9 Lives (www.9lives.ru/eng)

    then I doubt I'll have any problem with you doing so, though in all honesty,
    any updates are only going to be submitted to Gamefaqs as I do have a life.
    Though if you have permission for one version then you have permission for all
    versions as far as I am concerned unless I tell you other wise. The websites
    above know why they're there, though I don't understand why people go to them
    when they could just go to Gamefaqs which must be much more comprehensive.
    
    If you have any other bits of information relating to this FAQ please email me
    and let me know.
    
    If they are spelling or grammatical errors by all means let me know, I'm a bit
    of a pedant about them too. I won't reply to these emails, but they will get
    included in the next update and you'll get a thank you in the FAQ. Please 
    include FM2007 LLM FAQ SPAG in the subject line so I know what it's about.
    
    If they are about clarification that I have asked for please put what section
    it refers to in the subject line so I can get on with it and make the required
    changes ASAP.
    
    Any unnoticed errors should have FM2007 LLM FAQ New Error in the subject line
    too please. Any key info you think I have missed out however small is always
    welcome, though I may wait for a little while till the little bits build up
    before updating!
    
    Other than that please don't contact me for FM help, that's what the forum is
    for at Gamefaqs. Also I only really check my email at weekends because of my
    high flying job as an accountant I am not often at my place during the week,
    so don't get all pissy if I haven't got back to you about something you think
    I should have. I will do. Eventually!
    
    Also don't try to add me to MSN, this isn't my MSN addy! ;-)

    -	Thanks to the makers of FM for making a game detailed enough to
    	satisfy my nerdiness. 
    
    -	Inferno for a very interesting FAQ which inspired me to write my own.
     
    -	FM Britain deserve a thank you for a pretty good technical site and
    	also for making me feel a bit more relaxed about by fascination with
    	rubbish football teams.
    
    -	The makers of FM Genie Scout. I know it's a cheat program but it really
    	has been invaluable for quickly and accurately compiling some of the
    	lists in this game.
    
    -	The makers of FM Modifier for the same reasons but here, so I could
    	get easy access to club information.
    
    -	Barrington Belgrave, for having the most awesome name I have ever
    	heard of!
    
    -	Jez's Champmaniacs. www.champmaniacs.de It's an old site now, mainly
    	dealing with Championship manager 3, but the strange happenings section
    	is awesome, full of screenshots of quirky little happenings.
    
    -	Gamefaqs Worldwide Soccer Manager 2007 forum, for being the most
    	overly trolled and spammed forum on FM I have ever seen. Hilarious!
    
    -	Thanks to Gamefaq's someblk for letting me know about Dene Cropper, not 
    	the worlds best finisher but a great target man for lower league clubs.
    
    -	Thanks to ssjpaine for answering the call for assistance and sending me
    	a very useful list of players and accompanying notes, most of which can
    	be found in the miscellaneous players section. Nice work!
    
    -	Thanks to Falcon3540 and Yami Yugi2 for their opinions on board and 
    	fan expectations and encouraging me to make this FAQ more detailed.

    To make it easier for people to see what new stuff has been added to each 
    version and what still needs to be done I will reproduce the contents listing 
    from the top of the FAQ and annotate each section and sub-section in the 
    following way: 
    
    
    [ ] means that nothing has yet been written for that particular section.
    [*] means that this section is completed.
    [!] means that this section has been started but has not yet been finished.
    
    
    I will then add a little section at the bottom for details of corrections made 
    to previously completed sections.
    
    If you see any sections that are incomplete, especially if they are blank, do 
    feel free to email me and let me know that you would like to cover them.
