You can get your Assistant Manager to arrange pre-season friendly games on the 'First Team' section under the 'Staff Responsibilities' section within the 'Staff' screen.

You can delegate the task of renewing your players' contracts from the 'Staff Responsibilities' screen.

When viewing your squad screen you can get your Assistant Manager to pick your squad for a match by clicking the 'Quick Pick' option.

The relationships that form between the backroom staff can typically grow in stature over time. This can mean that backroom staff, who have each other set as favourite staff, may leave the club together when the manager is sacked or gets a new job.



Players who are very versatile are more likely to successfully retrain to a new position.

Players who are very versatile are less likely to lose new positions they've learned through retraining when they're not playing or retraining the position.

When managing a semi-professional club, it's a good idea to try and tie down key players to full-time contracts to maximise their training time.

Staff on part-time contracts have less time to train players than full-time staff.

Intense physical training is best carried out in pre-season, before the domestic season is under way.

Too much intense physical training during the season is likely to tire your players out faster and increase the risk of injuries.

Player's attributes will naturally decrease during the off-season, when they are away on holiday or doing very little training.

Remember that your youth players are still developing and as such will tire quicker. Be considerate with your workloads when devising youth schedules.



You can find out the level of scouting knowledge your club has by viewing the 'Knowledge' tab on the Menu bar within the 'Scouting' screen.

Your club's level of scouting knowledge can be increased by either signing scouts who already have a large knowledge base, acquiring an affiliate club or by sending your existing scouts out to investigate new territories.

Scouting your next opposition will give you an insight into their tactics and key players and help you plan your tactical approach for the game.

If you are managing a national team, it is possible for you to scout players eligible for selection.


Parent clubs automatically expand their scouting network by using scouting knowledge from feeder clubs.

When signing scouts from a foreign country, your team will benefit from the scout's knowledge of players from that nation.

Scouting a player more than once will increase the likelihood of the scout finding out more about his strengths and weaknesses.

The more scouting knowledge your club has, the more players will appear on the player search screen.

Assigning a scout to 'Scout Next Opposition' and to a country/region in another continent will result in that scout spending a lot of time travelling rather than actually scouting players.

Reports are automatically carried out on all players sent out on loan and can be accessed from the Development Centre.

The quickest way to scout any available game object such as a player or a team or a competition is to right-click and select the 'Scout' menu from option before choosing the member of staff you wish to compile the report.



A player is more likely to agree to a rest if he is starting to feel jaded, especially after a tough prolonged period of games.

When resting a player, choose the length of rest carefully as many players don't enjoy being out of action for too long.
