FIFA 07 (PC)
If you have the ball and are outside the area but not on your half, you can check on the map how far the keeper is off his line. Normally he is about two meters. You can lob him easily if you get the power correct.
When your goalie has the ball, call a defender back so that you can pass the ball to him. When you pass your defender the ball, run about two steps then press Circle
PlayStation2 or B
Xbox 360 to bomb the ball downfield. One of your forwards should be on the other end and all of the other team's defenders will be about even with him. He will chest the ball down, then all you have to do is turn around, run a few steps, and shoot; all of the defenders will be behind you at this point and when he chests the ball down he will not be offsides. Note: This works about 95% of the time.
- When you are losing the match, pause game play and go to "Select Sides". Switch to the other team and score your own goals. When you begin wining you can switch back to your original team.
- Play with the 3-4-3 combination. You will hardly loseany matches, even if you quicksim them.
Easy unlockable points
Advance through the game modes and select Tournament
mode. Select any cup tournament, as they tend to be shorter. Select
the highest rated team or replace a team in the tournament with
a highly rated team from another league. Advance to Tournament
Central and quick sim all the games until you have won the tournament.
You will be awarded unlockable points to spend.
- No matter what team you are in Manager mode, buy the best free agents in the transfer market. Sell them during the same transfer market window so you do not have to pay the high salary. Because they are free to you, once you sell them you can get the added millions to your bank account.
- Make any players you do not want as young as possible. Make them a forward with a role of CF. Set all their attributes at 99 and sell them in Manager mode. They should be worth at least $70,000,000.
Go into Tournament mode and select any desired cup.
Then on the "Select Tournament Teams" screen, remove
all the high level clubs and replace them with lower class teams.
Then, select a high level team for you to play as. Select "Advance"
to play the Tournament. You can now get easy wins in the Tournament.
You can even Quick Sim all the matches if desired. If you picked
a high level team to play as, such as Arsenal or Chelsea, and
all the other teams are low level, like Barnet and Boston, then
your opponents do not really stand a chance. Note: If you choose
to Quick Sim all the matches a result may rarely appear stating
that you lost. Save the game after every two or three matches.
When starting a new Manager mode, select Arsenal. Remove some of the players that you think will not play in your lineup. You will always succeed. Always refresh the contract with a salary much lower than he gets. Do not to go too low or the deal between you and the player will fail.
Purchase unlockable items without saving your profile. After testing items, simply reload your profile to re-acquire the unlockable points. By using this technique you can unlock and test all the unlockables in the game.
For clean sheets to be credited in season, tournament, Be A Pro Season, manager modes (everything outside exhibitions), it would be the final keeper present at the end of a shutout (clean sheet) game. For example, if you start with Edwin Van der Sar in the first half, Thomasz Kusczak in the beginning of second half, but finish with Wayne Rooney in goal because Kusczak was red-carded, and the final score was 2-0, Rooney will be credited with the clean sheet, and not Edwin Vander Sar. Kusczak is ineligible because he was red-carded. The clean sheet is void if any goals are scored against them. If any keeper conceded a goal, any substitute keepers in goal will not benefit even if they didn't concede any further goals.
This trick works in Manager mode when you are changing teams at the end of a season. At the end of the season when you are asked whether or not to renew certain players' contracts, choose not to renew the contracts of your favorite or best players (the ones you want on your new team). When you arrive at the new team and the transfer period starts, the players will be free
agents, allowing you to transfer them without paying millions in fees and allowing you to re-negotiate the contract to fit your new team.
Finding Giovanni Dos Santos
You can find Giovanni Dos Santos in Barcelona's reserve
list. Even though he is only 69 overall you can edit his stats
and make him as good as Ronaldinho. You will then have two of
the best midfielder's in the game.
