|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:


				---------
				Team Name
				---------


Reputation:

Stadium + Capacity:

Media Expectations:

Board / Fan Expectations:

Squad Size:

Training Facilities:

Youth Facilities:

Estimated Value:

Finances:

Transfer Budget:

Wage Budget:

Current Wage Total:

Key Players:

Top 3 Earners:

Top 3 Most Valuable:

Good young/reserve players:

Difficulty (/10):

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.

|s3. Lower League Clubs|

Right let's get down to the nitty gritty, the clubs. Sorry if I wasted your 
time with all that bumpf beforehand but I wanted to make this FAQ as accessible
as possible, so that anyone from the most experienced football manager to 
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
at the end.

First off:


+-----------------------------+
|s3.1 English Conference North|

Lancaster and Worksop both start the game managerless.

Top 3 Most Valuable: Mark Rawle 12k, Tristram Whitman 7k, Craig Mitchell 4k

Good young/reserve players: Matt Glass

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!

play in the third round of the FA cup earlier this year can probably appreciate
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

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

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

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

Difficulty (/10): 6

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

Difficulty (/10): 10

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.

to go as he is worth a bit and not really that good. Get rid of all the youth 
players to bring down the wage budget. Don't let go of Sean Lake. He is a good 
young keeper and you'll need him! Use your affiliation with Tranmere as best

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.

Notes: You need to get back into the black ASAP as you are both over your wage

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

Difficulty (/10):

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.

Difficulty (/10):

Notes: Decent youth facilities for this level, so you'll want to take 
advantage of this if you are planning a long game with this club by sorting out
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.

Notes: Get rid of Wilde, you can get better players for less money. Jenkins 
needs a wage cut and Scott Ramsay is out of contract at the start so you can 
sign him again if you want but I'd advise cutting your wage bill by that 250 
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.

Difficulty (/10):

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.

Difficulty (/10):

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.

Good young/reserve players: Richard Pacquette

Difficulty (/10):

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

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

Difficulty (/10):

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.

Difficulty (/10):

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!

Difficulty (/10):

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!

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,

Good young/reserve players: Ronayne Benjamin

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.

Notes: Utterly abysmal side. Cleary is the only person worth retaining. No one 
in the rest of the team is genuinely even of third division standard. So bad 
they are even described by former East Stirling manager Dennis Newall as 
"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.

William McCraw is the real star talent in this team and should be kept hold of 
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

Difficulty (/10):

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

Good young/reserve players: Mark Molloy, Ryan Campbell

Difficulty (/10): 11!

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.

Good young/reserve players: none

Difficulty (/10): 10

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!

Difficulty (/10):

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.

Top 3 Most Valuable: Frankie Carroll 3k, Shaun Molloy 2k, Mark Ferry 1k

Good young/reserve players: David Crawford, Richard Bowers.

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

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

Notes: Ground can be expanded by 3500. Carfora needs a big wage cut, around 
half, he's not bad, but there are several players who are better than him. The
two youth players listed are pretty good for this league already and, Dal Piaz
in particular, can develop into pretty decent players.

Difficulty (/10):

Notes: Berrettoni could do with a hefty pay cut. He's a pretty good player at
this level but he is on nearly three times as much as the next player and is not
really worth it overall. You might as well get rid of the loan signings even
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.

Difficulty (/10):

Notes: This team is in a pretty good position financially. You still have a bit
of cash in the wage budget, and that coupled with a decent transfer budget
should enable you to bring in a couple of pretty decent players should you wish.
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.

Difficulty (/10):

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.

Difficulty (/10):

Notes: Kand and Avogadri are decent loan signings and are two of the best 
players in your squad so hold onto them. Legati is a pretty woeful sweeper so
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.

Top 3 Most Valuable: Mario Rebecchi 250k, Morini 120k, Bruni 50k

Good young/reserve players: Mario Rebecchi, Daniele Pedruzzi, 

Difficulty (/10):

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.

Notes: Nearly 2k a week can be saved by losing the youth players who are 
rubbish as usual. Do not under any circumstances let Semenzato go, even if his
co-owners Inter start sniffing around as he is the best player you have at the 
moment and also the most promising. The club is affiliated with Brescia.

Good young/reserve players: none

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.

Difficulty (/10): 8

Notes: A difficult team to get to grips with, they have a much bigger squad 
than their finances can hope to support. Trimming the squad and the wage bill 
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.

Notes: With regard to the training facilities being listed as 0, this is not a 
joke, nor does it mean that the training facilities are randomly allocated at 
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.

Notes: A very difficult team to manage, their loan signings are useless and 
should be got rid of and you will need to search for a new goalie ASAP. Adami 
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.

Good young/reserve players: Alberto Serafini, Maurizio Rossi, 

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!

Difficulty (/10):

Notes: Meh, this is one of those annoying teams that's not too bad and not too 
good. Finances are unremarkable, players are unremarkable and they don't have 
any potential stars in their ranks. I'd just avoid if I were you. Marco Vianello
isn't that bad but his finishing sucks so you might want to consider cashing in 
on that 100k price tag and finding someone else. The chairman is not in love 
with the club either so you may find a takeover occurring at some point in the 
near future.

Good young/reserve players: Alessio Ciano

Difficulty (/10): 4

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.

Difficulty (/10):

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.

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.

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.

Top 3 Most Valuable: Mario Artistico 575k, Marco Teani 60k, Rossi 45k

Good young/reserve players: Massimo Coda, federico Dionisi

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.

Top 3 Most Valuable: Federico Vettori 95k, Davide Stefani 35k, Banchelli 20k

Good young/reserve players: None

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:Rosario Pepe is a decent player at this level and he is young to so you
would do well to try to retain his services for next season as well, but the 
rest of team is pretty weak and it is difficult to see where success would come
from without wholesale rebuilding. The team is affiliated to Serie B team 
Napoli, Serie C1 team Avellino and Serie C2/C team Potenza.

Good young/reserve players: None

Difficulty (/10): 7

Notes: This is a very difficult team to manage, having just come up from Serie 
D. Firstly you need to at the very least halve Corallo's wage, he's no where
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.

Difficulty (/10):

Notes: Though this team has also only just come up from Serie D, they are in a
decent position financially and you have plenty of scope to add a decent player
or two. Do your best to keep hold of Sadotti as he is one of the best defenders
in the league even though he is not exactly a spring chicken. The ground can be
expanded by 4000.

Notes: This is a good team for those wishing to play a long game. They are in a
good position financially and with a good financial base, a decent transfer
budget to start off with and a decent wage structure. You should do your best
to ensure that two of your co-owned players; Buonocunto and Lorenzi do not go 
as they are pretty promising.

Notes: How the Mighty have fallen! With the exception of Cisco Roma this is the
best team in the league unsurprisingly and one of the few you are likely to 
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.

|s4. Useful players from non-manageable leagues|
+----------------------------------------------+


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.

The notes that accompany some of these players are based on my own personal
experience, often just one game (though I have checked their stats again in a 
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.

|s4.4  Brazil|
+------------+


All Players are taken from a game started at December 2005, not December 2006,
so if you think a player should be in the Decent Players group but isn't check
the promising players section.

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.

Dani Castellano*	No Club		N/A			N/A	MC

*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!

Alan Devillers		US Centre	Belgium - Amateur	0	D/MRC

*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.

*Note from GameFAQs' ssjpaine: Natural left sided winger whom i believe is much 
more efficient as a striker, despite it taking more than 4 months for me to 
work out that he was so deadly upfront,Adriano managed to score 14 in his first
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.

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)

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! ;-)

|s7. Thanks|
+----------+


-	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.

|s8. Version History|
+-------------------+


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.
