During January, big named teams such as Birmingham City,
Aberdeen, Manchester City and more will lose their manager. This means
that the players wages are very low, and that the players will
actually go for the money they are worth or maybe slightly more. At
about the January 20th, go to "Jobs Available" and choose a club. Go
to the club's details and put all the players on your short list.
Then, go the short list, and if their rating is good enough, buy them.
Note: You can only see the rating on normal.
You can buy players very cheaply if you give them a 10% sell on
clause. If the player is good enough, you will not sell him on. For
example, Fernando Torres cannot be bought for ?17 million, but can be
bought for ?12 million with the 10% sell on clause. Andreas Isaksson
can be bought for ?6.8 million, but ?4.5 million with the 10% sell on
Players with one year left on their contract at the start of a
season can be approached by other clubs when they have six months or
less on their contract. Most players will certainly go so renew their
contracts before January. Also, check the transfer window in January
for players with six months or less on their contracts. If you find a
player you want, select "Offer Contract" and if they accept it, you
will get them at the start of the next season for a fraction of the
Fantasy team squad:
If you start a file on Fantasy mode in the Premiership, here are
some tips. First, enable the "No more money worries" code. When the
screen of empty players appears, you should buy Abbiati of AC Milan.
Then, select the option for a random team. Buy the following players:
F. Morientes (loan)
vanden Borre and Kompany (if possible)
If you start a normal season as Arsenal, the players that should
be sold are Jens Lehmann, Manual Almunia, Lauren, Ryan Garry and
Arturo Lupoli. Alexandre Song and Mart Poom who are on loan at Arsenal
can be sent back to their club. Accept any offers for the players you
are trying to sell. Players that should be bought are Andreas Isaksson
(Goalkeeper) from Rennes (?4.2 million with 10% sell on clause),
Fernando Torres (Striker) from A Madrid (?12 million with 10% sell on
clause), and Anthony Vanden Borre (Defender) from Anderlecht (?3.2
Million with 10% sell on clause). The trick with these is that you
will not sell them on.
