Getting to Your First Game
Getting started in any new game can be tricky, and Championship Manager 2010 offers a few pitfalls including the possibility of becoming an international manager as well as a club manager – something most players will want to avoid until they’ve got to grips with this new interpretation of the game.
Getting To Your First Game talks you through setting up your player profile, choosing and meeting a team and tells you everything you need to know going into that all important pre-season friendly.
Once there you’ll need to pick your team – even early in the game you should be selecting your most skilled players and this guide explains how you can identify these gems.
After you’ve got that match under your belt and had a look at your team, it’s time to start making a few changes. Sorting out the players fitness is a good bet, and you can do this by setting up new Training Programmes. These new training routines can be tailored to players and groups of players and are likely to give your team a boost especially when playing against weaker opposition.
This is also a good time to start looking at how your team execute free kicks and corners – with the new set piece editor you can tailor direct and indirect free kicks and corners to the skills of your key players.
