In Manager mode, go to the transfer market and sign the best free agents that are available. After you sign them, put them up for sale quickly before their salary gets too high. This is a good way to make easy money because you will not pay a transfer fee.
As soon as you take a center, run up to the keeper, avoiding all players except the player marking you (do not hold R) and have power to about 50% to 75%. You will score 90% of the time.
Increase Player Rating
After you finish a game in Manager mode you will see the player rating screen. Scroll down to one of your players and press the Circle (player bio). When his stats, appear press the Back and your player rating for the entire team doubles. Keep repeating this until the match experience is full. You will then see that his stats have gone up by two every match. When his stats for that position are full, swap strikers for your defenders and their stats will go up in the opposite way.
Cristiano Ronaldo and Robinho are two of the best dribblers. Use the Trick Stick with Ronaldo or Robinho to perform a double stepover. Press Forward, then rotate left and then right.
When one on one with the goalkeeper, perform a finesse shot. This will trick the keeper from going from one side to the other. For example, fake right and shoot left or vice versa. It will go in about 90% of the time. 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.
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.
Easy Score Penalties
When given a penalty, aim the Left Analog-stick into either top right or top left hand corner. Next, hold LT and then hold X so that the power bar is full. This will cause the penalty taker to do a lob penalty. Because it is full power it will always lob over the keeper into the goal, even if the keeper dives the correct way.
