Helpful Hints

  1. The Government charges a 33% tax on player transfers.
  2. The Government charges a 15% tax on gambling wins (C64 version only).
  3. In Europe, away goals do not count double.
  4. When an injury occurs during a match the sub is put on, and both teams are re-assessed.
  5. The league is calculated only on Saturday, not after the midweek games.
  6. You only have five saves a season. This is displayed as the second inversed number on the save option.
  7. You cannot have a youth team or extra training without a coach.
  8. The computer decides to move you up a level if your team is too good, not on anything else. This stops people trying to buy a 1st Division team in the 4th Division. you have to do what the real 4th Division managers would do, i.e. buy bargain/cheap players and sell your really good players to 1st and 2nd Division clubs which will keep your money going.
  9. If you press 'P' and the squad comes up, put your injured player in.
