Be any team in Manager Mode
Normally you must unlock the best teams to use them in manager mode. This usually costs 5,000 points in the fan shop. However, you do not have to do this. To be any team in career mode, for example, Chelsea, go to the team management screen and select Chelsea. Change the team so that all the worst players are playing in the starting line-up and all the best players are in the reserves. This will make the teams star rating go down. If it goes below 4.5 stars, you will be able to select that team to use in career mode.
Full stat team
You can make any team have full stats by editing each players stats and upgrading them to 99. However, be warned; if you start with this team in manager mode, your salary will be high. Make sure to cut their contracts down as soon as possible.
To start with a five star team immediately in career mode, go to the team management screen. Put the bad players in the first eleven so that your team will be a four star team. Then go to career mode. Your team should be there. Save your career, then go back to the team management screen. Put the first eleven players back, save it, and you will have the normal team on friendlies and your team on career mode.
Use the following trick to be any team desired in career mode without buying better career teams from the fan shop. First, go to team management and choose a four and a half or five star team. Put all their worst players into the starting line up. They need to go down to about four stars or less. You can then use them in career mode. When you have begun your career you can change your team back.
Fully fit team in Manager Mode
When in manager mode, notice that the energy bars of your players decrease after each match. Save your career, then go back to the main menu. Load your career again. Your team will have full health again. This may not work the first time. Save and reload the game maybe once or twice more for it to work.
Increase profits in Manager Mode
At the start of your season, do not spend the money you have immediately on staff upgrades and new players. Instead, spend the money you have on renewing player contracts. Wait to get your players morale up first, as they will be more likely to accept a renewal if they are happy at the club. Sometimes you can cut a players salary in half, if not more. Make sure to save the game before renewing contracts so that you can start low, and increase each time if the player refuses the renewal. If a player refuses the renewal at a high price, and they have a high moral, then it may be because they are close to retirement. This can earn you up to 3,000 credits off your current salary each match if done well. Alongside a good sponsor, you could be earning 7,000 to 8,000 credits each game when at home.

Win everything in Manager Mode with any team
Pick a team, then start your career. Save your game. Choose 'Next Match', then 'Quick Sim'. If you win the match, save your progress. If you lose a match, return to the main menu and load your career again. You can have as many chances as you want against a team, as the outcome is random every time. Make sure to save your progress after every win, in case you lose unexpectedly.
